Color-Coding Worship

February 8, 2017

This phenomenon is peculiar to the west where people are recognized and operate by their color coding. Whites, Black, Brown and so on. This phenomenon does not enter in the thought-process of most other societies. In very few instances this codification could be a beneficial but overall, it is unhealthy and repugnant. Black Color, most often, is the common topic of discussion whereas others are just taken for granted and in opposition to it.

West always whining about the assimilation of migrants, never really seriously addressed the issue of African-American assimilation. It instead has festered into a stigma of the western society. Color-Codification, therefore, is bad and repugnant in opposition as well as in agreement. For when one tends to be in agreement within the codification, instantly, he, by implications, also assumes to be in opposition to the other groups. Then the society starts espousing biases and prejudices. Some of us cross all limits in color allegiance and become an accomplice in all probable ills. At the extremity, the aggrandizement and celebration of these wrongs take place at the cost of assimilation. As often seen, this behavior in the west has morphed into a culture of vengeance, defiance, and rejection. It at times tramples all boundaries of common sense, morality, and religiosity when color allegiance runs supreme. It is a very dangerous state of affairs for any multicultural and pluralist society. Academicians, intellectuals and Social scientists need to play their role in correcting this behavioral trend.

End of the rope

August 24, 2016

It seems that Pakistan has reached its logical end for an imminent change. Turn of events is drastic and infuriating the army. The enemies within and without have come out charging. What is left is the move to nab those within Pakistan, hold summary trials and put them to gallows, for they have clearly committed the act of treason. Nawaz and his cohorts have premeditated this scenario as the last hope, for they see no way out of their predicaments otherwise. It should be assured that their nefarious designs do not succeed. Army should take the Judiciary into confidence and activate the Military courts for speedy prosecution of financial criminals and terrorist. The army should not try to Govern Pakistan, as usual, and install a technocrats-lead-government instead, for a longer period pending thorough clean-up.

Divine Wisdom

May 10, 2016

Koran And Glasses - csp0074385

 

بِسْمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ

(In the name of God The most gracious and the most merciful)

عَلَّمَالْقُرْآنَ

Allamal Qura’an (Surah Ar-Rahman 55 V 2)

Ar Rahman (The Gracious) has taught the Qura’an.

Just one word of Qura’an would show the veracity of Divine wisdom (Qura’an) for the people of intellect and understanding.

The word “Allama” (to teach) a verb, according to Arabic grammar, requires two object. One is direct and other indirect.

1) The one of which knowledge has to be imparted (taught).

2) The one to whom the knowledge has to be imparted (taught).

(1-is the source and 2-is the recipient)

Here the first object is Qura’an while the other one is not specified.

Some scholars/exegetes opine that it is Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) who was taught the Qura’an directly by God (through the medium of Jibrail (Gabriel- A.S) for onward dissemination to the entire creation. (Not only Muslims)

Let us look at it from another, rather a subtle, point of view.

The purpose of the Qura’an is to give guidance, about good morals and righteous deeds, to the entire creation; therefore, the 2nd object is left deliberately unspecified to ensure the dissemination.

عَلَّمَهُا لْبَيَانَ (4)خَلَقَ الْإِنسَانَ  (3)

Next verses # 3 & 4 say:- He created man. He taught him how to express himself.

Man’s creation ranks first and foremost in the natural order of things so much so that even the imparting of knowledge proceeded after his creation.

This also determines the sole purpose of the creation of human and gene (Jin), stated in (51:56) We created man and Gene (Jin) for nothing but worship. Worship without guidance is impossible.(Nevertheless, the mention of Qura’an precedes the creation of man in surah Ar-Rahman—but imparting of the knowledge became possible only after man’s creation. Hence, man acquires first and foremost position in the natural/rational order of things).

Vitriolic White Man      

April 26, 2016

160311194851-trump-rally-protest-chaos-erin-acosta-00005212-large-169

                                                Current Presidential election campaign has exposed several fault lines of American society. Economic stagnation has veritably changed the mass-psychology, way of rationalization, level of tolerance and religiosity. Economic slumber of decades; engendered an undercurrent in the societal conduct; in the form of a vitriolic white man’s rebellion against immigrants and religions; which in its aftermath, must have landed sociologist, behaviorist and anthropologist alike on a unique learning curve.

 

Despite a recent uptick in economic activity; due to sustained steering coupled with huge capital injections, has not resulted in the alleviation of the average Joe. Although jobs are being generated and added to the workforce but mostly of part-time and temporary nature; which due to the global-parity-compulsions offer lower pay with least or no benefits. The result is that families are faced with a permanent state of uncertainty and fear. Due to shrinking or stagnant income in the face of rising costs; everyone has to pitch in to maintain their abode intact; which in turn has destroyed the fundamental structure of a family; more so of a white family, who used to be a conspicuous representation of a thriving, prosperous, well-knit American society. Father, who used to hold an esteemed status in familial-hierarchy, has either gone missing or become irrelevant. His role has been relegated to one of the breadwinners of a group. He now has to compete with younger people, of different tastes, odd work schedules, with a different set of issues, and somewhat better informed; pretending to be a family-head in control. In extreme cases, he has to even swap the role with his spouse. There is hardly an occasion for dinner table exchange of banalities. This has destroyed the inner core of the society transforming it into a bitter and intolerant one.

 

On the outer spectrum as well there is a huge shift due to the variegated flow of immigrants. They come with their own ingrained set of values; which are often at odd with American values; more so with inconceivably perverted values, which misleadingly are being boasted about and chaperoned as freedom of choice and expression.

 

In nut-shell white man is under a constant onslaught from every direction. First, he ceded to irreligiosity in the cloak of utilitarianism, then to the Abolition of slavery, then to the justification-of-equity in the shape of affirmative action, then to Mexicans and Latino workers. The recent spate of variegated immigrants, however, is the harshest, since it is at a (financially) hard time. There are not many jobs, not enough income, fractured family structure, degradation of moral values and society, as a whole, up in arms. It has pushed a sizeable segment of society in belligerent mode. A recent survey showing 24% increase in suicide rate (especially women) is an alarming vindication of societal frustration. They are vehemently against the influx of immigrant (mostly Muslim immigrants/refugees—given the sustained, premeditated demonization of Islam and Muslims). An unscrupulous, demagogue, presidential hopeful, Donald Trump, seized on these sentiments and started targeting Muslim and Mexican to win the election.

 

These immigrants come with their own set of values, work hard, get a good education and often land good jobs or establish successful businesses. They often stay and operate within their own groups except when they have to otherwise. They adopt American values but strictly based on necessity or compulsion. (Second generation, however, acts and behaves on more American less immigrant level). In fact, they traverse in parallel value-systems with ease; one from back home and the other need-based American. Their work ethics, moral standards, religious ethos and ratiocination; which are time-tested, put the white man under immense pressure despite their minimal proportion. White man seems to have been pushed to the wall for enumerated reasons. Ironically they feel under threat of being wiped out, as a majority, within their own country, which is ironically claimed and owned by all equally! They, as early settlers of several generations ago, think have an emphatically exclusive, claim and rights to America, unlike a newly sworn citizen. (Needless to say, it is the most cherished part of being an American for which some pay very heavy price).

 

This hurt is more pronounced in the middle-class and most in the lower middle class; who, more often, lay down an exclusive claim of being true American. These folks are so frustrated that they are ready to take on anything and everything. They think it is the matter of their survival. I am all sympathetic to their “Nationalistic” plight, but now this is other’s adopted/chosen home too; who after few generations would be standing with them, in the same shoes! The jingoistic course of action, chosen by them, therefore, is misleading and futile. They should rather, gain awareness, Learn, how to re-invent themselves, retrain, get educated, stay away from drugs, alcohol, pre-marital sex/pregnancies, hate, anger and frustration. Stop hating religions and God; because it simply deprives one of the privilege and faculty of contemplation, entailing humbleness and sense of gratitude. A recent jump in suicide rate could very well be related to this deprivation. Start having normal families and achievable goals. It won’t be long that you will become relevant and important as anyone else Stasis is unsustainable. Harboring negative feelings is an anecdote of self-immolation. Trump phenomenon, as people call it, is not really a solution to the ills of an American man. It is but an opportunistic cashing of the situation by a tabloid-famed, self-indulgent, demagogue. In the end, he probably would be flying high but you sure would be the in worst of a situation. The truth is that none of the politicians is interested in your or my welfare but his/her own. It is time for sagacity and wisdom to prevail. The choice is yours!

Ugly Face of Western Darling India!

April 2, 2016

Ugly Face of Western Darling India!

According to recent reports; India is wooing IS (Islamic State) by supplying arms and tactical support for a stronghold in south Asia; especially to destabilize Pakistan; in the wake of Gwadar Port being developed with the help of China, which would greatly benefit both the countries economically. Organizations such as Hizbut-Tahrir and disgruntled Taliban off-shoots; both in Afghanistan and Pakistan, are being recruited and supported by India to join IS. India, as a counter to Gwadar port, has been developing Iranian port Chah-Bahar. India had also been buying Iranian oil during the sanction period with complete impunity. The Economic Times reported — “Under pressure from the US and other western powers, India had relegated its second biggest oil suppliers by cutting down purchases from 21.2 million tons in 2009-10 to 11 million tons in 2013-14. Imports have been of that order in last three years”

It is an open secret that India for decades has been involved in terrorism in several countries including Pakistan. Indian PM Modi,(Gujrat famed–Burning of 10k Muslims) during his recent Bangladesh tour, has brazenly admitted the break-up of Pakistan in 1973.  During the investigations of recent “Lahore attack”, a top ranking Indian active duty naval officer has been caught operating in Pakistan. He has admitted the involvement in terrorism and also that his main purpose was to frustrate the Gwadar project.  Here is a report to substantiate it.  “Commander Kul Bushan Yadav is not the first Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) operative caught snooping in Pakistan though he is certainly the most high-profile spy of all seized till date, an exclusive research conducted by the “Jang Group and Geo Television Network” reveals”

Reportedly Modi has called Pakistani PM pleading not to raise the issue in international forums.

More disturbing than this is the fact that in recent years there has been growing concern about India’s security capabilities with regards to its nuclear stockpile and enriched Chemicals. According to reports about 20 tons of such chemicals is missing. Several nuclear watch organizations and. Governments are worried that it may have been supplied to most dangerous of all “ISIS”, who can easily use it for dirty bombs and wreck havoc.

“October last year, it was learnt that a 20-ton consignment of Beryl was smuggled from Kandla Port in Gujrat to Hong Kong. It is estimated that Rajasthan is accountable for 10% of Indian nuclear smuggling” (Center for Public Integrity)

“India’s nukes are at risk – The agency tasked with guarding India’s nuclear weapons and materials “is short-staffed, ill-equipped, and inadequately trained”, write Adrian Levy and R. Jeffrey Smith in a new in-depth report for the Center for Public Integrity. Reporters uncovered the evidence that “weapons and technical equipment lagged well behind comparable security forces elsewhere in the world. An estimated 90 to 110 Indian nuclear bombs are stored in six or so government-run sites,” which are guarded by the paramilitary Central Industrial Security Force (CISF). However, the report shows that U.S. government officials and experts alike believe that the agency is inadequately equipped, and that “India’s nuclear explosive materials are vulnerable to theft.” December 22, 2015

 

“Recently, 31 tons of nuclear material was recovered from the accused who was arrested in Rajasthan, India. Indian media recently reported theft and smuggling of nuclear material from India to an unknown network of global buyers, however, no concern was raised over the issue. World powers are disturbingly quite on Indian nuclear smuggling case, something that is no less than a global threat. The anonymity of the alleged global network is of greater concern. There are no reports where the stolen/smuggled nuclear material ends up and how it is used, and what channels are employed to get said material out of India”

“The nuclear material in question is Beryl, an atomic mineral ore of Beryllium. China, along with the United States, Russia, Canada and Brazil is few of those countries that use Beryl in atomic power plants, space-technology and scanning equipment”

After all, this there is no justification for the world community to let their guards down; especially so for the west who is already under attack by ISIS. Lest it is that the material support is coming from their esteemed strategic and trading partner INDIA—Biggest Democracy in the world—where burning Muslims and killing Christians has been a norm. It sure would not matter if they are killed elsewhere even in greater number!

Would it, therefore, not be justified if President Obama, in the same vein and proximity as with Killer PM Modi, sits with Abu Bakar Al-Baghdadi negotiating the sessions of hostilities and killings all around the world?

If Hillary becomes President?

February 22, 2016

Hillary will issue License to Israel to Kill Palestinians. Committed in her letter.

 Hillary Clinton Visits Oakland Hospital To Launch Parents And Kids Reading And Singing Initiative

Washington: Hillary Clinton, Democratic presidential candidate announced that she would issue license to Israel to kill Palestinians, if elected. She expressed this in a letter written to a major Jewish donor.

The letter was leaked last week which was sent to Israeli-American media Mogul Haim Saban.

“Quite frankly, Israel didn’t teach Hamas a harsh enough lesson last year. True to form, Obama was too hard on our democratic ally, and too soft on our Islamofascist foe,” reads the letter, obtained by the Guardian.

“As president, I will give the Jewish state all the necessary military, diplomatic, economic and moral support it needs to truly vanquish Hamas – and if that means killing 200,000 Gazans, then so be it”, she adds.

“We realist Democrats understand that collateral damage is an unavoidable byproduct of the War on Terror,” Clinton writes, “and me being a mother, grandmother and tireless children’s rights advocate does not mean that I will flinch even one iota in allowing Israel to obliterate every last school-cum-rocket launching pad in Gaza. Those who allow their children to be used as human shields for terrorists deserve to see them buried under one-ton bombs”.

Islamophobia—Through YouGove Poll & Pew Research Center Study.

December 30, 2015

men-praying-800x430

Hostility toward Muslims in America exists due to a lack of familiarity with Muslims (and ISLAM).

55% of surveyed Americans had an “unfavorable” opinion of Islam.

 

Islamophobic sentiments are more common among Americans who are 45 and older, those who are Republican and those who are white.

 

2015 data shows that 3% of Americans identify as atheist (as well as 4% who say they’re agnostic and 16% who say they’re nothing in particular). By contrast, less than 1% of Americans identify themselves as Muslim.

 

29% of Americans (and 43% of Republicans) still believe that Obama is a Muslim, according to a poll by CNN and the Opinion Research Corporation. (Often white, often Republican)

 

AMERICAN EXPERIENCES

You Gove Poll asked.

(1) Do you personally happen to work with a Muslim? –– 74% said no.

(2) The survey also asked whether respondents “happen to have any friends who are Muslim” – 68% said no.

(3) Another 87% said they had never been inside a mosque.

 

Indeed, a YouGov survey conducted in the days after Trump’s comments found that 40% of Americans supported a national registry of Muslims. Yet again, those views were more commonly held mostly by— older respondents and those who were Republican.

 

 

MUSLIM EXPERIENCES

Pew conducted a survey that sought out only Muslim respondents, in 2011, they found that negative experiences were commonplace: 28% said that in the past year, people had acted suspiciously of them, 22% said they had been called offensive names and 21% said they had been singled out by airport security.

 

Reflect Being an American honestly! Does this unjust Islamophobia based on sheer ignorance and prejudice represents true AMERICA?

Beduin Pentagon —Saudi—Terrorism.

September 17, 2015

YEMEN—–GAZZA of SAUDI ARABIA——FATE of REFUGEES !!!!!!!!!.
STOP SAUDI-LEAD BEDUIN-PENTAGON’S—– TERRORISM IN YEMEN.
UN, AMERICA, EUROPE & All People of Conscience should spread this message to stop the state terrorism by Saudi Butchers—Just because HOUTHIS are Shia’a Muslims. A Human catastrophe has taken place– caused by incessant barbaric SAUDI air attacks. Yemenis are facing acute shortage of food, drinking water and electricity. YEMEN is at the brink of famine. People are starving Help them anyway one can please.
Criminal Beduin Pentagon is blocking all efforts to help refugees at all levels.
The height of the Hypocrisy is that SAUDI STOOGES NOW SUPPORT US-IRAN DEAL FOR—-They have been given a green light—BY OBAMA ADMIN– to wreck havoc as much as they want in Yemen & Syria and on REFUGEES.

Save the generations from becoming disillusioned.

May 3, 2015

It is alarming that schools, colleges, and universities in the West generally and in the United States specifically are working on a deliberate plan to churn out younger generation Anti-Religion, Anti-Nation. BBC recently aired a program where it was narrated that Christians are afraid of publically declaring themselves as Christians. The reason is that Atheists attack theist with such ferocity that most theists, because of lack of knowledge or religious befuddlement, take refuge in hiding their theistic beliefs. Surprisingly it is not the case with Christians only. Muslims are facing that dilemma twice—an attack from atheists—- and —another from Islamophobes. The result is that Muslims with little or no knowledge are also compelled to accept unsavory labels of “Secular-Muslims” or “liberal-Muslims” Some, to avoid these slanderous terms use a bit more acceptable term of “Contemporary-Muslims”–In an attempt to distinguish themselves as enlightened, modern Muslims. All of these classifications are untenable from an Islamic perspective. The point to ponder is why is it happening on such a massive scale and what forces are working behind it. Church, no doubt, has miserably failed to keep the Church goers and attract the new adherents. There could be several reasons for it, but few obvious ones are, commoditization of religion, commercialization of church activities, Misappropriation or nonreligious use of contributions. Mosques, on the other hand, are generally manned by illiterate, with little or no religious knowledge imams, who in many cases can’t even read or speak English. Their main role, therefore, is limited to leading the prayers. Main reason for poor quality Imams is financial constraints. A very famous mega Church leader in GA is planning to gather 15 million $ for buying an airplane for his personal use. Several  church-related figures have already been trashed in the media on similar accounts.

Why younger generation, is thronging to Atheism?

Another reason is the parent (s) casual and expedient lifestyle where religiosity takes a back seat. There is no concerted effort to instill the religious values in the mind and behavior of a kid. Freedom of religion and freedom of choice is overemphasized which culminates in an individualistic mindset– without any pre-set boundaries. Expedient morality bits starts from anywhere and to whatever one deems fit. Everyone establishes its own set of self-satisfying rules—which are bound to result in conflict at the wider stage of the world. When such minds, due to natural propensity or worldly compulsion, think to fall in conformity with the universally accepted values of morality and conduct, an insurmountable challenge is faced. They have to unlearn what they have been living by first, since childhood, and then learn the religious, new values, fresh. In the face of this arduous undertaking easiest and readily available course, therefore, is to resign to already pulling liberal/atheistic forces. Hence another fine mind is lost to the abyss of ATHEISM forever.

Our ambivalent or explicit approval of activities condemned in scriptures is another reason for this pandemic. Today any important personality has to think 100 times, before resorting to God in Public discourse, whereas coming out of the closet waving a flag of modern liberalism has become a matter of pride. The result is that most media outlets would flatly refuse to carry any opinion against gays and lesbians. Religions or religious figures, however, could be ridiculed and desecrated with perfect impunity in the name of freedom of expression. (Absolutely inapplicable to any opinion against gays and lesbians)  On several TV Channels, it is a fait accompli to replace the word God with extra-terrestrials or some other synonym. On History Channel on May 1st, 2015 2, PM show it was said that Moses went to the mountains not to meet God but extraterrestrials. We, therefore, have to reverse this situation with serious, all out efforts if we have to save this nation and country from disillusionment and ideological demise.

West not at war with Islam

February 24, 2015

President Barak H. Obama Jaw boned the incredulous participants at White House Summit. Although every Muslim and non-Muslim, with a little acumen, equally and sincerely would wish so, but unfortunately the statement was flat out unbelievable. Mr. President, you continued fighting a war waged against Muslims by a group of neocon extremists, on a contrived, as widely believed, pretext of 9/11. Bush & Co. destroyed one of the oldest cradles of Muslim Learning – rich in history-Iraq- on yet another contrived pretext of WMD. The same group of maniacs then destroyed another medieval styled rustic Muslim country – Afghanistan. A country which had never been a threat to anyone except that her people have been the fierce defender of their freedom encroached upon by invaders. If we (the West) is not at war with Islam, One may wonder why then, Iranian president Mussadaq was toppled by CIA?  Why Shah Faisal of Saudi Arabia got assassinated.  Why Pakistani president Zia-ul-Haque was taken out in a plane crash? Why Algerian elections won by an Islamic Party were rejected?   Why Syrian President Bashar Al-Asad’s regime need be changed? Why Libya got disintegrated, Gaddafi eliminated and country pushed into civil war? Why Arab spring was hijacked, duly elected President of Egypt Mursi removed and Army Gen. implanted? Why Gen. CICI is being supported by us against the popular sentiments? Why are we meddling in the affairs of Yemen and Sudan? Why two Christian states—East Timor & South Sudan were carved out of sovereign Muslim Countries? Why Palestinian Muslims are destined to world’s biggest concentration camp (Gazza) for decades with our tacit approval? Why was Israel planted in the heart of the Muslim Middle East? Why Israel is guaranteed blanket impunity against all crimes committed or it may choose to commit? Why Kashmiri Muslims are being enslaved by a brute force of 500k soldiers; raped and killed at will, independence denied for decades, despite UN resolutions calling for a plebiscite, by our second biggest, after china, trading partner (INDIA)? Why are we supporting the Kings and Despots in the Middle East? Is our championing of democracy and human rights a ploy? Why every single Muslim country is being micro-managed by us? Mr. President, you lack credibility even with your own people because you reneged on many of your campaign promises. I seriously wonder what makes you think that with all these blatant infractions Muslims should believe your words– West is not at war with Islam. Well! they might not be the Einstein of the first world but that does not mean they are stupid or naive to the extent that they would accept your insipid oratory. Mr. President, it would not need a brainiac to understand that for any tangible result, we have to come up with an honest and practically visible-counter-narrative, not by Mullahs or Imams, but by –US– the west. We must also stop contributing to the oppression of deprived, on the edge Muslim youth; disgruntled by the orgies of the ruling elites–the real inferno of extremism. So far Muslim majority condemns the barbaric killing of innocent people by IS or anyone else—West must, therefore, seize it right here and actuate the reversal back to normalcy and co-existence with wisdom instead of conceit, ingenuity, hubris or jingoism.
