'Secular' English media reports 200 (!) Hindu women in Bangladesh raped!

The commitment of TOI to such reports, ultimately truth about Islamic intolerance towards non Muslims, can be gauged by observation that it has not allowed comments to this report. I am not even sure that this piece has appeared in print edition like it found its place in internet edition. A corporate like TOI very much knew about extent of penetration of internet in India and also knows about people who use it; those people are equally not favorites of reporting by English media. So, why not report it for the sake of reporting.

When it did, it ensured that its secular credentials are not violated by reporting in a manner as if this was a lone event. Radhashyam Brahmachari (RB)has brilliantly written on the violence perpetuated on Hindus in Bangladesh including kidnapping and raping of Hindu women, which is always an ongoing phenomenon. And many more have done extensive research on this targeting of Hindu women by Muslims. This specific targeting of Hindu women is directly related to extermination of Hindus from Bangladesh as there will be less procreation on Hindus side and also will serve as a warning to other Hindus. Below are links to two article written by RB:

Humanity assassinated.  (Discretion advised because of some graphical images.)
Why Muslims rape infidel women?

I myself wrote a post on this blog (here, here), where I presented some excerpts from RB's work, some of which are reproduced here:
Hindu women (from age 8 to 70) are often subjected to gang rape. About 200 Hindu women were gang raped by Muslims in Char Fashion, Bhola, in one night at a single spot (The Daily Star, Nov. 16, 2001)  [Mark this.]
The Islamic terrorists have levied Jizya taxes on the minority Christians and have told the Christians to give them their wives, sisters and daughters for sex if they failed to pay the tax. (Source: Christian Solidarity Worldwide, Dec. 13, 2001).
The Muslim thugs gang-raped mother and daughter together on the same bed with the parents and children forced to watch; and they have raped mothers in front of their children (The Daily Janakantha, Feb. 5, 2002; April 22, 2002).
From the second article:
 ......Shovanallah, there is no sin if you do jina (sex or rape) with the malaun women in this world. These women are nothing but war-booty (mai-e-ganimat). Whenever you feel like doing sex in this world, do it with the malaun women. Shovanallah, there is no sin in it and it is the process by which you have to drive them out of Bangladesh.” (pp-14)
Another lesson says, “We hate the malauns but not their women. Personally, I like the body-odour of the malaun women much. Whether they are Brahmins or Charals (A low caste), or Kaibartas (another low caste), their body odour is excellent. A highly intense, sweet mundane fragrance comes from their breasts, from the hairs of their armpit and thighs. The extremely sweet fragrance that comes from the sweat of their pubic-hairs makes me mad.”
The lecture continues, “I get really amazed by observing the power of that Islamic gun. They start pushing the Islamic gun without any pause. They pushed the Islamic gun into a malaun girl in front of her parents. After tasting the daughter, they tasted her mother. Some tasted the mother first and then the daughter, while some tasted the daughter first and then the mother. In one occasion, 10 – 12 jihadis seized a 10-year-old malaun girl. The mother of the came to me in tears and requested me to send the jihadis one by one. She also said that her daughter is very tender and she has not yet reached puberty and begun menstruation. If so many jihadis go to her at a time, my daughter will die. So, I asked the jihadis stand in a queue and go inside the room one by one.”
“One day, another jihadi called Mohammad Hafijuddin came to me with an unique proposal. He asked, “Sir, is it true that there is no sin in raping malaun women?” I said, “yes”. Then he said that, a khayes (intense desire) has come to his mind. When I enquired about the khayes, he said, “I want to rape four malaun women at a time.” A further enquiry revealed that he came to me after keeping four Hindu women, a mother, two daughters and one daughter-in-law, as captives under lock and key. I also told him that he must fulfill his khayes and get satisfied and that would be better for his physical and mental health. After receiving my consent, he returned and took two hours to complete the job. It appeared to me that, he did not take much time to rape four women. “
Now lets come to the present report: Minority women' gang raped in Bangladesh in 2001-02
DHAKA: A judicial commission has concluded that over 200 Hindu women were raped following the 2001 parliamentary election, forcing many terrorized families to flee the country.
The acts were allegedly committed by cadres of the Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) and its ally Jamaat-e-Islami who won the 2001 polls, the report said, citing the involvement of many top leaders and lawmakers of the alliance that is now in the opposition.
While the commission referred to the victims as "minority women", media reports of that period had identified them as Hindus.
With Begum Khaleda Zia as the prime minister, the BNP-Jamaat alliance ruled Bangladesh during 2001-06.
The violence went on for 15 months and "the barbarous act was intended to force them to leave the country. They were, in the eyes of the culprits, enemies as they voted for the Awami League", The Daily Star said on Tuesday, quoting commission sources.
The commission submitted the report to home minister Sahara Khatun. It lists 3,625 incidents of major crimes, including killing, rape, arson and looting.
Media reports at that time had detailed the plight of hundreds of Hindu families crossing over to India, forcing the Indian government to express concern.
Bangladeshi poet Daud Hyder, who visited the camps in India where these families were lodged and wrote about it, was later charged with sedition and imprisoned.
The wave of violence was the subject of "Lajja" by novelist Taslima Nasreen, who angered the Islamists at home and was had to quit Bangladesh. She still remains exiled.
Many victims and their family members interviewed by the probe panel narrated harrowing experiences, but said they did not lodge police reports or undergo forensic tests for fear of inviting social stigma, the report says.
Many victims and their family members across the country contacted the commission when it was conducting the probe.
According to the panel, it would be "tough or, to some extent, impossible" to continue the probe into the rape allegations "as the victims themselves are unwilling to do the legal battle".
The probe panel found that most of the gang rapes occurred in the country's southern part - Bhola, Barisal, Agoiljhara and Gaurnadi.

Can you notice one thing (just follow the paragraphs in red letters)? The figure 200 quoted by TOI was just actual no. of  victims at one place, at one time, not spread over 15 months. Then, that is how our media works. 

'Moderate' Sultan Shahin on Islamophobia

When I came across this article, actually it is a verbatim of speech given by an Indian Muslim to UNHRC (United Nations Human Rights Council), I recognized the name 'Sultan Shahin' immediately and also his website 'New Age Islam' which claims to be speaking against radical Islam. Previously, I never read his works as I never believed that Islam can be reformed.

When I read it, I found that, in most places, he says all the right things like hardship of religious minorities in Islamic nations, cruelty of blasphemy law and moderate Muslims having no influence among Muslims, desires of Muslims to implement sharia law.

It is quite easy to get carried away by this kind of presentation - seemingly honest - of acceptance of prevailing Islamic extremism and extend trust to believe in what ever he says regarding the nature of Islamic teachings. Because, he completely misrepresents many things, as one will understand while reading, like Islamic stand on other religions, position of Islam on intereligious marriages and teachings of Prophet Mohammad. I never read his work on Jihad, its meaning and implications, but I can imagine how that could be.

So, is he an Islamic scholar standing for reforms in Islam or a deceiver or a Muslim who believes Islam to be a different one from main stream line?

He tells that Islam of terrorists, extremists and Islamic ulema - who spend their life in studying Islamic scriptures - is an aberration of true Islam and is a product of some 'Petro Dollars'; in the process he innovates by telling blatant lies and half-truths. So, the natural question should be 'why'? Two possibilities exist:
1. He really believes what he says. But, like I said his version can not stand the scrutiny because of false assumptions and deviations from Islamic sacred texts. He himself admits to prevalence of Islamic supremacist beliefs among present day Muslims and failure of his version of 'moderate Islam'.
2. He is just making up things to deceive non Muslims with the result that they continue to remain ignorant of Islamic goal and practices of Muslims in achieving it. This should tell us how dangerous it is for non Muslims to remain ignorant of true Islamic doctrines. 
Either way, Islam advances. Finally, I am quite astonished at how he - portraying himself as some liberal as opposed to orthodox Islam - characterizes criticism and discussion of Islam as Islamophobia, probably intending to crush criticism of Islam and free speech. Rather than judging things in harsh manner hastily, it is better to go through his speech and analyze it, which I attempted here and readers can decide what he stands for.

Poor guys! They really do not know about Islam

Islamic objective in Britain? Not to integrate but to establish Islam as superior to others and making future queen , Kate Middleton, wear veil.

Of course, we -  intellectuals and politicians and Governments - know for sure that neither those speakers nor Koranic teachings mean what they seem to be!

This kind of speech, posted below, can not be qualified as hate speech but infidels objecting to such kind of speeches is bigotry and 'ISLAMOPHOBIA'.

Bengali Hindus need to make a stand

"Bangladesh’s Hindu population is dying. This is not opinion or “Islamaphobia” or anything else people want to call it to deny reality. It’s a fact. At the time of India’s partition in 1948, Hindus made up just under a third of East Pakistan’s population. When East Pakistan became Bangladesh in 1971, they were less than a fifth; thirty years later, less than one in ten; and many put today’s Hindu population at less than eight percent.", Dr. Richard Benkin says on the anniversary of Hindu Samhati.

One can read the full speech from here.

The immediate problem is not just what is happening in Bangladesh but what is taking place with in Indian borders: step by step Islamization of entire West Bengal piece by piece. Should one need be reminded that when Partition of Bengal took place, East Bengal was for Muslims and West Bengal was for Hindus. But, misunderstood Gandhiji's philosophy and secularism of 'western' like liberal and atheist Nehru have turned out to be bane of ordinary Bengali Hindus living in West Bengal as they are facing existential threat today like Bengali Hindus living in Bangladesh faced.

What Dr. Benkin says about Hindus in Bangladesh is a warning to Bengalis in West Bengal as in some places, like Deganga, Hindus are being uprooted.

Islam is not a religion, it is also a totalitarian political (fascist) ideology and a cult. Its founder, Prophet Mohammad, is one of the lowest of lowest people ever to live on the face of the earth. Fighting it intellectually and politically is a virtue, not a vice; in reverse, not doing anything to stop advance of Islamic barbarianism is vice. 

Secularism or Islamization? (France)

This video perfectly explains what will happen to non Muslims in an area as demographics of that area tip the scales in favor of Muslims. Video is on Muslims in France. But it also is quite an education for Hindus in India as Hindus in some parts of West Bengal are becoming victims of Islamic jihad.

'London Taliban' targeting women not wearing veil !

We saw this - violence or threats of violence towards Muslim women not wearing veil - in Kerala and some Muslim universities. Even the supposedly secular IUML, an ally of secular Congress, was instructing its women candidates to wear veil. And it is sacrilegious in this country to ask questions on alliance between IUML and Congress (here and here).

It looks like Britain is learning certain things - taking inability to deal with Islamic extremism as sign of tolerance - from its former colony. One common feature to Britain and India is popularity of Deobandi sect of Islam whose ideology has inspired and produced Taliban in Afghanistan and Pakistan; in Britain, out of 1400 mosques, 650 mosques are operated by Deobandi sect. No wonder then, appeasement of Islamists never really works as their demands will only keep growing. It is not the first time that such reports of coercing Muslim women to wear veils have come out as in the past some Muslim women were fired from their jobs by shop owners for not wearing veils.

'Wear a headscarf or we will kill you': How the 'London Taliban' is targeting women and gays in bid to impose sharia law

Women who do not wear headscarves are being threatened with violence and even death by Islamic extremists intent on imposing sharia law on parts of Britain, it was claimed today.

Other targets of the 'Talibanesque thugs', being investigated by police in the Tower Hamlets area of London, include homosexuals.

Stickers have been plastered on public walls stating: 'Gay free zone. Verily Allah is severe in punishment'.
Posters for H&M which feature women in bikinis and a racy poster for a Bollywood film have been defaced.
It is believed Muslim extremists are behind a spate of attacks being investigated by police, according to the Sunday Times.

An Asian woman who works in a pharmacy in east London was told to dress more modestly and wear a veil or the shop would be boycotted.
When she went to the media to talk about the abuse she suffered, a man later entered the pharmacy and told her: 'If you keep doing these things, we are going to kill you'.

The 31-year-old, who is not a practising Muslim, said she has since been told to take holiday by the pharmacy owners and now fears she may lose her job.

She said: 'Why should I wear a hijab (headscarf) or burqa? I haven't done anything wrong.'
Other incidents reported include the placing of stickers across the white-minority borough which state it is a 'gay-free zone' and the daubing of paint on posters for clothing shop H&M featuring women in bikinis.
Ghaffar Hussain, of the anti-extremism think-tank the Quilliam Foundation, told The Sunday Times that the intimidation was the work of 'Talibanesque thugs'.

He added: 'This minority think they have the right to impose their fringe interpretation of Islam on others.'
Three men have been charged with religiously-aggravated criminal damage in connection with some of the incidents, which have mirrored crude attempts at censorship in Birmingham.

Borough Commander of Tower Hamlets, Paul Rickett, said: 'I am saddened that there are a small minority of people who do not wish to respect the lifestyle choices of others.

'I would like to reassure the people of Tower Hamlets that we are investigating these incidents.
'At this stage there is no information to suggest any of the incidents are linked. Anyone found committing such criminal acts will face criminal proceedings.....................

'Moderate' Muslim Council of Britain: Muslim women can not debate wearing veil

Muslim Council of Britain (MCB), a self appointed body as representative of 2 million Muslims living in Britain, is considered moderate and Govt. also works with leaders of this group; sure, it does condemn terrorist acts by Muslims but some more confusing statements always follow these condemnations. Our politically correct media and politicians do not think that later ones need not be taken in to consideration so, it gets recognition as moderate group for just denouncing terrorism in myriad contradictory statements.

But, what is being moderate in Islamic religious beliefs? How are they different from terrorists if they are really different? Is rejection of violence -orally- for consumption of infidel public sufficient to say that an Islamic group is non supremacist or moderate?

It has been proved that many Islamic organizations in USA claiming to be moderate, because they criticize terrorism, are actually Islamic supremacists organizations desiring and striving to make US an Islamic republic and making it ruled by sharia. The aim of these Islamists - still treated as moderates by leftist and liberals - better expressed in their own words - is to wreck the miserable house of infidels by their own hands.

Extremists and terrorists are ready to use violence as means to achieve their goal of world being ruled under sharia while, 'seeming' moderates simply want to achieve the same goal - whole world under sharia rule - through non violent means, called by some people as stealth jihad. But,  they (moderates) have same contempt, like extremists and terrorists, for all other things that are not Islamic. 

MCB might not have been caught like Islamic organizations in USA in their stated goal - like CAIR, ICNA, ISNA, MSA - but, many statements issued by its own leaders suggest that it is one Islamic supremacist organization.

To know whether it is progressive or extremist in attitude, one only needs to know its position on women wearing veils (here):

The Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) said that not covering the face is a "shortcoming" and suggested that any Muslims who advocate being uncovered could be guilty of rejecting Islam.

In a statement published on its website the MCB, warns: "We advise all Muslims to exercise extreme caution on this issue, since denying any part of Islam may lead to disbelief.

"Not practising something enjoined by Allah and his Messenger… is a shortcoming. Denying it is much more serious."

The statement quotes from the Koran: "It is not for a believer, man or woman, that they should have any option in their decision when Allah and his Messenger have decreed a matter."

The statement will add to controversy about the veil after France earlier this week banned the full-face covering.

"There is no case for a French-style ban in the UK and virtually no serious person supports it," said Haras Rafiq, of the moderate Muslim think-tank, Centri.

"But by this statement, effectively suggesting that the veil is an obligation, the MCB have put themselves at the opposite extreme of the spectrum."

The statement is signed by the MCB's then secretary-general, Mohammad Abdul Bari, and his deputy, Daud Abdullah. It was published in the wake of an earlier controversy about the niqab but passed without notice.
It remains available on the MCB website as a statement of policy.

Other signatories of the statement include Imran Waheed, spokesman of the extremist group Hizb ut Tahrir and several other extremists including Haitham al-Haddad, who has denounced music as a "prohibited and fake message of love and peace". All 27 signatories, who describe themselves as "Islamic groups and scholars," are male.

Dr Bari stepped down as secretary-general of the MCB last year, but remains chairman of the hardline East London Mosque, whose chief imam, Abdul Qayum, also signed the statement.

Dr Bari is also a former president of the fundamentalist Islamic Forum of Europe, which controls the mosque and which advocates a sharia state in Europe.

The MCB received significant funding under the previous government and was seen as the main representative voice of Britain's estimated 2.8 million Muslims but has not received any official money since February 2010.
The MCB did not respond to enquiries.

Human Rights Commission of Pakistan: worse times ahead for Hindus and Sikhs

Indian Express reported this here. The report overlooks one thing i.e Hindus and Sikhs may not exist in Pakistan in future. The population of religious minorities in Islamic nations is always in continuous decline yet, not one politically correct intellectual will ever admit to it. As for report of 'the worst times ahead for few remaining Hindus in Pakistan', it does not give actual picture of religious minorities were always targeted for violence and faced discrimination with the the Muslims favorite method of humiliating non Muslims by kidnapping and raping infidel women.

For those who can perceive, history (look at Afghanistan and Turkey) and all this proves Islam simply refusing to treat non Muslims as decent human beings.

Can Indians do anything on this horrible condition of Hindus and Sikhs? Rest assured that present Govt. and establishment of pseudo intellectuals, pseudo secularists, leftists and liberals will consider this humanitarian measure a massive and unwanted risk that could strengthen Hindu right wing forces; they are very much ready to embrace Islamic organizations with Taliban like ideology for the sake of their narrow interests and ideological beliefs.

Over the time, some parts of India - Assam and West Bengal - will witness the process of Islamization with Hindus being uprooted from their own lands by Muslim migrants from Bangladesh; this effort at Islamization is already underway in many places in West Bengal but do not ever expect politicians and media to speak against it.

Agencies Posted online: Fri Apr 15 2011, 15:21 hrs
Islamabad: The previous year was a bad one for Pakistan's minority communities including Muslims of various sects, Sikhs and Hindus due to threat to their lives by militants, according to a new report which suggested even worse times ahead.

The Human Rights Commission of Pakistan's report said 418 Muslims of various sects were killed in terror attacks and about 25 per cent of Sikh families in the Orakzai tribal area were forced to leave their homes due to threats from Taliban.

It said 500 Hindu families from Balochistan province migrated to India due to threats to their lives and security.

The "State of Human Rights in 2010" report, which detailed attacks on the minorities, said: "All indications suggest that there are even worse times ahead."

The report said 418 people were killed in violence against different minority Muslim sects while suicide attacks on Muslims injured 628 people, including Shias.

Sikhs living in Pakistan's northwestern areas for centuries had to face trying times after the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan asked them to pay 'jiziya' (a religious tax) or leave the area.

Around 25 of the 102 Sikh families living in Orakzai Agency were forced to flee their homes.

They were able to return after the military carried out an operation against the militants.

A total of 500 Hindu families from Balochistan in southwest Pakistan migrated to India because of threats to their lives and security, the report said.

According to Balochistan's director of the Federal Human Rights Ministry, at least 27 Hindu families from the province had sought asylum in India because of threats, It added.

The minority Ahmedi sect, which was declared non-Muslim through a constitutional amendment in 1974, lost 99 members to faith-based violence, the report said.

The report further said 64 people were charged under the controversial blasphemy law in 2010 and many of them were imprisoned.

A Muslim and two Christian men accused of blasphemy were killed in police custody, it said.......

Now it gets official: Bangladesh to adopt Islam

On ground, it was always Islamic nation and behaved like one. One common trait shared by all Muslim majority nations is sub human treatment of non Muslims and humiliation they had to suffer; Bangladesh was no different. Just consider this fact: Percentage of Hindus came down to 7-9% from 23% and atrocities are being committed on other minority groups like Buddhists and Christians. But now, it gets official: Bangladesh is to adopt Islam as state religion (here):
Despite electoral promises and an apex court’s ruling to restore secularism, the Bangladesh parliament is poised to pass an amendment to establish Islam as the state religion and legalize religious politics.

The Sunni Muslim majority nation of 158 million will relax stringent restrictions imposed in the constitution of 1972.

The constitutional amendment committee members said in “prevailing political reality” the parliamentary special committee on constitutional amendments on Monday decided to advocate for relaxing restrictions on political Islam so that Islamic parties can continue functioning without any restrictions.

The provision of Article 38 of the Bangladesh constitution bans use of religion for political purposes. Instead, the article allows every citizen to form associations or unions, subject to any reasonable restrictions imposed by law in the interest of morality or public order.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, leader of the ruling Awami League, at Monday’s meeting said the ruling party would not curb the political rights of Islamist parties. The secularist activists expressed their frustration and women rights groups are disgusted after recently hearing prime minister's political vision to keep Islam as the state religion in the constitution.

The Awami League government in 1972 banned religion-based organizations after Islamic parties collaborated with the marauding Pakistani army that killed 3 million people in nine months in 1971.....

Exonerated man becomes another victim of blasphemy law in Pakistan

In Pakistan, simple rumor or an allegation of blasphemy is sufficient to get one killed; whether courts exonerate the accused is immaterial as misunderstanders of Islam are always there to enforce Islamic law. There were many such cases before - in some instances, the judges who acquitted the accused were also killed - and this will not be the last one either (here):
Mohamed Imran had been accused, jailed, tried and cleared: if anything, society owed him a debt as a man wrongfully accused.

But his crime was blasphemy. He was meant to have said something derogatory about the prophet Mohammed, so in Pakistan justice worked a little differently.

Two weeks after he returned to his small patch of farmland on the rustic outskirts of Islamabad, his alleged crime caught up with him.

Two gunmen burst into the shoe shop where he was sat talking to a friend. Imran tried to duck, to seek cover behind the man next to him -- terrified so greatly for his own life that he perhaps forgot about those around him.

But the gunmen found their target and Pakistan's controversial blasphemy laws claimed another victim........

When the world is bowing to Islamic imperialism, a US woman citizen shows 'REAL' courage

Some pastor presided over burning of Koran in Florida, US and Muslims in Afghanistan responded in such a way that some said, "their actions simply justified the burning of Koran which means showing contempt for religion of Islam and its ideology."

Earlier in this blog (in last October), I said that I was against burning Koran but some knowledgeable ex-Muslims literally justified burning of Koran. In these 6 months, I learned new things, I read more books; worse thing after reading and learning more is strengthening of my old belief that Islam can never be reformed and clash between Islam and others is inevitable - if others finally realize what is happening and true nature of Islam - and have decided to make a stand. The big question is: Will ever Non Muslims realize the true nature of Islam? Right now, I go by an ex-Muslim's, Abul Kasem, view that it does happen.

Coming back to burning of Koran - I felt that - the whole incident could serve as a catalyst to make people read about, know and understand Islam on their own; in this way they do not have to depend on an 'Islamaphoebe' like me or some dubious Muslim apologists; because after reading, people become experts themselves no longer depending on others for developing opinions. But, all this is wishful thinking as my experience with some people in discussing Islam taught me. For many reasons, Hindus in India simply developed a barrier of high resistance around their faculty of objective inquiry.

Some try to turn (project) their ignorance of Islam and its ideology in to high moral position from where it is not required to say anything against or criticize Islam. Some say that they stand for secularism, freedom and freedom of every thing with out ever understanding one word of what they are standing for and where to draw lines on any position e.g. some said that they support freedom of expression. When I pressed, their views of freedom of expression come with many conditions and 'ifs'; when I confronted by saying who decides those conditions and 'ifs', silence is their reply. I hope they do realize the truth that it is 'THE ONE DECIDING  THESE CONDITONS and 'IFS' ' is real master.

Some giving an appearance of  upholders of freedom of expression can not even allow my comments on their websites. Some think that I am a rabid RSS ideologue seeing my criticism of Islam; and many times I fell over with many Hindus, at few websites, on my stands like 'I am against constructing a Ram Temple' or 'showing lack of interest in criticizing Christianity' or 'my rejection of RSS and its sexist position'. Right now, my way of getting over all these unhappy encounters is consoling myself that I am poor at persuasion and expression or presentation.

Leaving aside Indian context to resiting Jihad and its consequences, an ordinary, now extraordinary, woman in US has decided to stand against Islam and its ideas. Her name is Ann Barnhardt.  She did this by making videos of her expressions of disgust at politicians in US as some of them suggested curtailing freedom of expression in US and on why Islam is retrograde religion - at great personal risk (to appreciate her courage, compare it to me staying anonymous). Following are two video's; first one is on a US politician and second one is on Islam itself.

Islamists planning to initiate new reign of terror in Deganga (West Bengal)

Of course, they will continue Jihad until they succeed in Islamizing West Bengal or met with proper and, equally ruthless, resistance. (learn about battle of tours in France; some speculate that had this war won by Arab Muslims, present day Cambridge University in London would have been an Islamic university.)

First, illegal immigration of Muslims from Bangladesh has tipped demographic profile of that district 24 paraganas north (West Bengal) in the favor of Muslims. Realization that politicians from both sides are ready for pandering to their whimsical demands has simply emboldened Islamists who are simply wearing mask of politicians. So, what should be their next step after getting firm foot hold? Proceed to subdue and humiliate others (Non Muslims, Hindus in this case) by terrifying them so that they will never resist further Jihad just like biggest terrorist Allah said in Koran:
Then, when the sacred months have passed, slay the idolaters wherever ye find them, and take them (captive), and besiege them, and prepare for them each ambush. But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then leave their way free. Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. (Pickthall, 9:005)
Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued. (Yusuf Ali, 9:029)
Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers (in fight), smite at their necks; At length, when ye have thoroughly subdued them, bind a bond firmly (on them): thereafter (is the time for) either generosity or ransom: Until the war lays down its burdens. Thus (are ye commanded): but if it had been Allah's Will, He could certainly have exacted retribution from them (Himself); but (He lets you fight) in order to test you, some with others. But those who are slain in the Way of Allah,- He will never let their deeds be lost. (Yusuf Ali, 47:04)
And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is all for Allah. But if they cease, then lo! Allah is Seer of what they do. (Pickthall, 8:39)
Remember thy Lord inspired the angels (with the message): "I am with you: give firmness to the Believers: I will instil terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them." (Yusuf Ali, 8:12)
Violence in Deganga, that took place in last September, is simply an effort in this process with aim, better expressed in the words of Qazi Mughis-ud-din (lived during the time of Delhi Sultanate):
"The Hindus are designated in the Law as ‘payers of tribute’ (kharaj-guzar); and when the revenue officer demands silver from them, they should, without question and with all humility and respect, tender gold. If the officer throws dirt into their mouths, they must without reluctance open their mouths wide to receive it. By these acts of degradation are shown the extreme obedience of the zimmi [dhimmi], the glorification of the true faith of Islam, and the abasement of false faiths. God himself orders them to be humiliated , (as He says, ‘till they pay jaziya) with the hand and are humbled…The Prophet has commanded us to slay them, plunder them, and make them captive…No other religious authority except the great Imam (Hanifa) whose faith we follow, has sanctioned the imposition of jaziya on Hindus. According to all other theologies of Islam, the rule for Hindus is "either death or Islam".
From deganga2010.
There is a well-known notion contrived and executed brilliantly by the Nazis once, “blame the dog before you shoot”, and followed by many others in the following decades. But the Muslim hardliners across the globe have surpassed all these and have implanted the word malign too. The precise meaning of the word is to speak unfavorably about and everywhere Islamic zealots malign opponents to break their moral fiber up.

Deganga, town with a police station and a community development block in Barasat subdivision of North 24 Parganas district in the Indian state of West Bengal, known more for the notorious carnage of Hindus in last September, also perceives the same. And it has become certain by now that the foremost aim of the recent Islamic religious convention held in Deganga was to malign Hindus, their faith and thus to destruct their moral fiber. The Islamic religious convention (taking place in the Deganga Bazaar area) continued between 05 April 2011 to 08 April, 2011 but devoid of any official permission of using microphone.

On last Friday (08 April, 2011) the event was staged with vitriolic criticisms of Hinduism (including the pantheon, perennial principles and practices) by Islamic religious teachers. They were also found to state that sanctified Hindu temples belong to Muslims only as these were founded on basic structures of ancient mosques and the time has come to regain these with full might. The local Muslims, majority of which were participants in the atrocities on Hindus, were also perceived to support the same theory. All these infuriated Hindus a lot, as usual.

As a mark of protest against all these a great number of Hindus blocked Taki Road before P.S. Deganga for 3 hrs. on 09.04.11. The furious protest of Hindus balled over the local administration too and as per latest info, police has given written statement that it would ask the Muslim committee to appear and take appropriate measures to mitigate the rising tension in the neighborhood.

However, Hindus have started to smell a rat and for people like Atanu Majhi, Sukdeb Barman, Bappa Mondal, Swapna Karmakar Deganga is moving towards a fresh turmoil.

Two Muslim men attack a man, in France, because he is a Jew

Koran says: The strongest in enmity towards Muslim men are jews......

Yet again, ignorants believe that Muslim's dislike and hatred towards Jews and Israel primarily arises because of unresolved issue of Palestine. Islamic antisemitism existed prior to the creation of state of Israel; to be more precise, it goes back to the time of Prophet Mohammad itself thus, we see such as this kind of teachings in Koran and Hadith:
O ye who believe! take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them. Verily Allah guideth not a people unjust. (Yusuf Ali, 5:51)
Strongest among men in enmity to the believers wilt thou find the Jews and Pagans; and nearest among them in love to the believers wilt thou find those who say, "We are Christians": because amongst these are men devoted to learning and men who have renounced the world, and they are not arrogant. (Yusuf Ali, 5:82)
Allah's Apostle said, "The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. "O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him." (Volume 4, Book 52, Number 177)
Allah's Apostle said, "You (i.e. Muslims) will fight wi the Jews till some of them will hide behind stones. The stones will (betray them) saying, 'O 'Abdullah (i.e. slave of Allah)! There is a Jew hiding behind me; so kill him.' "(Volume 4, Book 52, Number 176)
I heard Allah's Apostle saying, "The Jews will fight with you, and you will be given victory over them so that a stone will say, 'O Muslim! There is a Jew behind me; kill him!' "(Volume 4, Book 56, Number 791)
There is lot more to all this antisemitism in Koran, Islam and present day Islamic world. Antisemitic speeches are quite common in sermons and speeches. So, Muslims take all this as a kind of duty which gets them closer to Allah.

France: Man assaulted over 'Jewish appearance'  

A 21-year-old man from the city of Villeurbanne in southern France was severely injured last week after being assaulted by two men of North African origin, the European Jewish Press reported Monday.

According to the report, Thursday's violent incident occurred as the man headed home from a Torah class at the local synagogue.

The two aggressors allegedly approached the man and asked for his name. After hearing his response, the two told him: "You don’t look to be named Antoine, you look Jewish, you are a Jew."

When the victim confirmed he was Jewish the assailants shot him with a pellet gun and hit him in the head and body. He was rushed to hospital suffering from severe injuries to his abdomen, head and arm.

Local police have launched an investigation. A police source told a French news agency that "the tone heightened between the three youths. There was an exchange of blows and two youths of North African origin took out a gun ball and possibly a truncheon."

Marcel Amsellem, a leader in the CRIF, the umbrella group of French Jewish organizations condemned the attack. "There is no doubt about the anti-Semitic character of this attack. It’s extremely serious because they used physical violence with a weapon," he said.

The mayor of Villeurbanne also strongly condemned what he called "an intolerable act."

Muslim youth:"By virtue of the registration of marriage and conversion certificate, she became my wife."

After conversion she becomes a Muslim - since now, both are Muslims - and Indian courts, maintained to uphold constitution, do not have any right to adjudicate on personal laws of Muslims as India does not have uniform civil code; what more worse could follow is that Hindu girl has to subject herself to judgement based on archaic laws of 7 th century, sharia law. Neither media nor politicians will ever dare to speak on such matters. This must have been the line of reasoning by lawyers on the side of Muslim man. At times, this kind of contradiction of sharia and civility or contradiction of sharia and special marriage act were seen in the past. Based on judgments given by high court judges, my thought was that with Hindus like these, India is not in need of terrorists or extremists from adjoining countries like Bangladesh and Pakistan. Here in this case, girl is simply fortunate and every girl may not find all judges like this judge.

Duped into conversion, woman gets divorce 
The Delhi High Court has granted divorce to a Hindu girl under the Special Marriage Act, finding truth in her statement that she was fraudulently made to sign papers by a Muslim youth which later turned out to be registration of marriage and conversion certificate into Islam. The girl and the youth were friends. She had taken his help to get membership of a library in Jama Masjid for which he persuaded her to convert to Islam. It was under this pretext that he made her sign and execute certain documents.

"This court does not find any illegality or perversity in the reasoning given by the learned trial court in accepting the case of the respondent (woman) that she had never adopted Islam religion and there was no proper solemnisation of marriage between the parties," Justice Kailash Gambhir said while upholding a trial court's decree of divorce.

Dismissing a petition filed by a man for setting aside the trial court's order, the court rejected his argument that the woman - being an educated person - knew about all the documents she had signed and the registration of marriage was done with her consent in November 2005.

The man later claimed that by virtue of the registration of marriage and conversion certificate, she became his wife.

When the woman discovered the fraudulent act in May 2007, she had approached the trial court for dissolution of the marriage under the Special Marriage Act and the court, in November 2008, had granted divorce to her.

".....being an educated person - knew about all the documents...". Valid argument but not enough as she does not know how disgusting Islam is and how cruel its Prophet was. Conversion is a tricky one and sufis in India have found out many tricks; one such is Islam is not different from others and one just has to say shahada (3 times) and continue living like they did previously. And there are also material and social benefits as they no longer have to pay jizya and live in humiliation. That first or second generations will not see any drastic changes but 3rd generation will find out that Islam is completely different from other faiths and will act accordingly.

This is what happened in India; at the time of partition, most Muslims are Muslims for name sake and even their names sounded like Hindu names. Precisely to change this, Deobandi has come up.

Malaysian MP Says Men Have Affairs Because Wives 'Neglect' Their Duty in Bed

MP further quotes, “In Islam, wives are supposed to stop everything to fulfill their husband’s demands.” This argument is in line with reported teachings of Prophet Mohammad (Prophet on Muslim women.) and overall position of women in Islamic theology. On other hand, this kind of observation reinforces the main line present day Islamic belief that neither Islam nor Muslim men are never wrong and it is other's fault if Muslims do wrong. The best example is a Mufti saying Muslim men can not be faulted for raping women and it is the fault of women not wearing veil; or infidel women are looked on as characterless or the fact of Islam looking at Non Muslims with disdain and contempt or the prevalence of culture among Muslim men boasting about raping or seducing infidel women (here). 

This kind of statements coming from modern Malaysia testifies to how Islamic beliefs, which are rejected by Muslim apologists when speaking to infidels, pervade through Muslim societies irrespective of index of development and modernization. Interestingly, feminists and leftists are least likely to express outrage on such observations either because of fear of retribution from Islamists or their feeling that their condemnation results in strengthening hardliners at home or, probably this is the reason, their belief that Koran never really means what it says or Muslims never mean to imply and do what they really say (here):

Malaysian men have extramarital sex because of “wives who neglect their responsibilities” to their husbands, a Malaysian lawmaker told Parliament on Thursday, outraging women’s groups.

“Husbands driving home after work see things that are sexually arousing and go to their wives to ease their urges,” said independent lawmaker Ibrahim Ali, according to online portal Malaysiakini.

“But when they come home to their wives, they will say, ‘wait, I’m cooking,’ or ‘wait, I’m getting ready to visit relatives’,” Ibrahim said.

“In Islam, wives are supposed to stop everything to fulfill their husband’s demands.”

Ali heads Perkasa, a right-wing Malay nationalist group seeking to protect ethnic Malay dominance in politics.

His strident comments came as he asked about plans by the government’s religious development department to educate wives on their responsibilities.

Wives failing in their duties pushed men to go to “private places to satisfy their urges”, he said.

An aide to the lawmaker confirmed the remarks but declined further comment.

His comments prompted fury among women’s groups in a nation with a growing sex industry and a problem with human trafficking.

Women’s Aid Organisation chief Ivy Josiah said Ibrahim’s comments were unacceptable for a parliamentarian.

“I am appalled as he equates women to being a sex toy and what is worse is that he uses religion to try and justify his position,” she told AFP.

“The comments not only show that Ibrahim Ali is a Malay supremacist but a male supremacist as well.”

Rights group Tenaganita, who monitor issues of human trafficking and abuse, said such sentiments were one of the causes of human trafficking in the country.

“Because people like Ibrahim Ali believe it is their right to get sex anytime from their wives, or otherwise seek it from elsewhere, that’s why you have a growing sex industry and we see such human trafficking cases,” senior coordinator Aegile fernandez told AFP.

Last March, the government launched a national plan against human trafficking as the country moves to quash its image as a transit point for traffickers.

With one of Asia’s largest populations of foreign labour, Malaysia relies on illegal and legal migrants to work as domestic servants, in plantations, factories and to service the local sex industry.

Malaysian lawmakers also clashed with women’s groups last month after a government parliamentarian claimed women were “slow” at the wheel and “oblivious” on the roads.

Muslim woman in France: "I will only obey French law if it does not contradict Islamic law".

In a world where media operates impartially, it is not difficult to see why Muslims are not integrating in to host countries they immigrated to. At the root of problem lies Sharia law, which touches even minute aspect of every day life of a devout Muslim, guiding Muslims. For Muslims to say that they do not obey laws contradicting sharia law, when in infidel majority countries, points to established norm: whether Muslims are in majority or minority, it is always others who have to change their life style to accommodate Muslims, Islamic life style. But what if, some host country bans some of those Islamic practices which are in contradiction with country's civilization? Logic dictates that Muslims either obey and live by law or migrate to a country where such practices are tolerated. Some French Muslim women, want to defy French Govt.'s ban on veiling:

For life, liberty and the burqa: Muslim women defy France's ban on full-face veils. (Reported by Deepthi Namasivayam)

THEY are the women prepared to defy France for the burqa.

From today French police have the power to stop Muslim women wearing full-face veils and to threaten them with fines or prison if they refuse to expose their faces.

All over France posters have been put up reminding veil-clad women that “the Republic lives with its face uncovered”.

Last year, President Nicolas Sarkozy pushed through a controversial law banning Muslim women from wearing burqas or niqabs in public. He said the law was to increase security but claimed it would liberate Muslim women from the oppression of their veil.

Any woman who refuse to lift her veil can be taken to a police station, fined 150 euros ($205) and ordered to attend re-education classes.

Anyone found guilty of forcing a woman to wear face veils in public or in private faces a fine of 30,000 euros and a year in jail.

However, some women have vowed to defy the law.

“I will not obey it,” said Wahiba Mebrek, 25, from the suburb of Villepinte, north of Paris. “I will only respect laws of the French Republic which are not in contradiction with me, my religion and my faith,” she added.

She is angry the Government and media peddled this image of them as being oppressed. For her, it was a conscious decision, made by her and husband when they became devout Muslims eight years ago.

Violent reaction

Hind*, a 31-year-old single mother from the suburb of Aulnay-sous-Bois outside Paris, switched from the “miniskirt to the veil” after converting to Islam six years ago.

She said that her wearing of the veil had provoked hostile, even violent reactions in the street. She was recently attacked in front of her daughter by a couple.

“People’s reactions weren’t as violent until this issue was mediatised. Now that the law has passed, they feel that their violent behaviour towards us is justified,” she said.

“People have the impression that we are totally cut off from the world, but we have normal relationships like everyone else, we are accessible."

Hind will not take off her niqab, if asked by police. “Never ever will I apply this law,” she said. “It is not up to the government to meddle in my private life and my beliefs.”

French officials estimate that about 2000 women, from a total Muslim population estimated at between four and six million, wear the full-face veil.

Many Muslims and human rights groups accuse Mr Sarkozy of targeting one of France's most vulnerable and isolated groups to signal to anti-immigration voters that he shares their fear that Islam is a threat to French culture.

Years of abuse

Other critics worry the law may be hard to enforce, since it had to be drawn up without reference to religion to ban any kind of face covering in public and since police officers will not be allowed to remove women's head coverings.

But for other women, wearing the veil was not a choice.

Zeina*, 31, was forced to wear the niqab by her abusive ex-husband. She lived with his abuse until one day, a neighbour saw her bruises and took her to a women’s refuge. She details the ordeal in her autobiography, Sous Mon Niqab (Under my Veil).

“When I wore the niqab, I felt excluded from the world, from society,” she said. “Taking it off was a sort of freedom, a liberty for me.”

But she opposes the law, saying it will further oppress women. Unable to wear their veil in public, Zeina fears their abuse may go unnoticed as they will be confined to their homes.

As for those women who wear their niqab in the street for Friday afternoon prayers at their local mosque, they too risk being fined.

This is what worries Mrs Mebrek.

“The veil is an exterior manifestation of my religion but in a secular country, I am free to do so,” she said. “All this will stop from April 11.”

Moderate Islam? Imam opposing terrorists shot down in Dagestan (Russia.)

'There is nothing like moderate Islam or radical Islam and saying such is an insult to Islam; there is just Islam', these are the words of Turkey's Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Much of Koran was interpreted in only one way, - esp. regarding what is Jihad and how Non Muslims should be treated - since its advent with the exception of very few schools of Islamic thought that existed before, probably, 1100 AD. But Islam was never the one to adopt to less violent philosophy nor to dilute the meaning of submission to Allah successfully. Averroes himself was excommunicated for more emphasis on reason and logic (but his stand on Jihad was in line with main stream understanding.). Those liberal schools simply disappeared for adopting thoughts like -  there is free will in human decision making, reasoning and logic are more important than what is in Koran; people behind such thoughts were mostly influenced by writings of  Aristotle and Socrates. In early 12th century,  gates of interpreting (ijtihad) Koran were shut down with justification that Koran is relevant for all times as Koran itself states that none can change its content.

With exclusionary and supremacist doctrines -like jihad and dhimma- being only valid interpretations of Koran, what Turkey's PM Erdogan says is right. There is nothing like radical Islam or moderate Islam; while, existence of moderate Islam is a myth created by Muslim apologists and their liberal-left alliance, Islam in its own words is exclusionary and totalitarian. If we do not see every Muslim country trying to be like Taliban's Afghanistan or Saudi Arabia or Iran or Sudan, it does not mean that there is another version of Islam.

What happens when one tries to deviate from accepted true path - like going against blasphemy law or punishment for adultery by stoning to death or Jihad? We did see that speaking against blasphemy law has ended lives of two people. In the previous post, we did see a religious leader getting killed for opposing Islamic punishment of 'stoning to death'.

Similarly, an Imam in Dagestan (Russia) was killed for asking younger people not to join Islamic militant groups for Jihad (here):
A prominent imam who discouraged youth from joining Islamic militants has been shot dead in his home in the strife-torn southern Russian republic of Dagestan, news reports said Saturday.
Magomed Saiputdinov was slain by automatic gunfire in a nighttime attack near the Chechen-border town of Kizlyar, agencies quoted a spokesman for the local interior ministry as saying.
"He was widely known for his uncompromising stand against any forms of violence, condemning the murder of innocent people and other atrocities of the Chechen underground," Interfax quoted a police statement as saying.
Saiputdinov was the sixth Muslim religious leader to be killed in the republic in the past year, with the previous fatal attack occurring on November 1, 2010, RIA Novosti quoted the National Anti-Terror Committee as saying........

This kind of reactions from pious Muslims is the reason why we do not see any moderate Muslim speaking against violence and calling for changer or infidel media preferring to stay silent rather reporting on Islamic jihad.

LeT (Lashkar-e-Taiba) wants Srinagar bomb blast, that killed a Muslim religious leader, blamed on Hindutva outfits.

Remember all those bomb blasts which are being blamed on non existing Hindu fascist groups by home minster and Digvijay Singh . Particularly, Digvijay Singh's rancor, probably under instructions from so called 'the most powerful person' in India (need not be Indian at all), is meant to achieve multiple objectives: 1. Demonizing Hindus and Hindu groups with implicit message that Islamic extremism and terrorism are just a myth and it is Hindus who are real threat to nation; 2. To induce 'FEAR' in to Muslims about their physical security and to tap in to resulting sentiments of Muslims on victimization and marginalization; and subsequently, to project Congress has true guardian of secularism and protector of Muslims. What better way exists than to brandish Hindu groups as terrorists and at the same absolving Islamic organizations; 3. Making opposition defenseless; 4. Making ignorant Hindus guilt conscious and reducing their opposition to policies of Muslims appeasement; 5. to make the way much easier for labeling any one questioning its policies extremists; 6. Signalling to leaders of Islamic organizations that it means business and in return, those leaders are expected to get their supporters to vote for Congress.

The obvious consequence of this dangerous ploy is more blatant efforts at Islamization by Islamists either through terrorism or other 'peaceful activities' like love jihad etc. and to shut down any kind of discussion on threats of Muslim illegal immigration from Bangladesh. Islamists are not dumb to fail to perceive how easily politicians and their policies can be made more amenable to their ultimate goal of Islamic rule in India, thus finishing the unfinished job of Islamizing India under Delhi Sultanate and Mughal rule. That is what Saudi sheik meant when he told Muslim students to work towards changing social order in the country.

Where is media in all this? We have seen them publishing Digvijay Singh's hate message with out any questions or analysis. We have seen them not reporting honestly on violence committed by Muslims in West Bengal or other parts of country. We have seen them censoring letters written by Muslim terrorists about their beliefs and motives. So, to expect following news item in regular main stream media is naive:

'LeT wants Srinagar blast blame on Hindutva outfits'
New Delhi, April 8 (IANS) Intelligence agencies have intercepted a telephonic conversation of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) spokesperson in Pakistan asking a Kashmiri journalist to put the blame of Friday’s Srinagar blast that killed a top [MUSLIM religious leader who opposed sharia law on stoning people to death for adultery] religious leader on Hindutva groups, including the Shiv Sena.
‘Message (was) intercepted between Abdullah Ghaznavi, LeT spokesperson in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir and a reporter in Kashmir,’ said a source privy to the interception.
He said that LeT leader during the telephonic conversation ‘directed (the reporter) to spread the message to misdirect people that the blast in Srinagar was done by the Shiv Sena and Bajrang Dal and that more such actions (are) likely by these organisations’.
Prominent Kashmiri religious leader Maulana Showkat Shah, a trenchant critic of last year’s stone throwing youngsters, was killed in a powerful bomb blast outside a mosque in Srinagar, triggering a spontaneous shutdown that crippled life in the Jammu and Kashmir summer capital.

Saudi Arabia arrests a Christian on charges of proselytizing.

If Saudi law bans religious proselytizing by other faiths in its land, logic dictates that Saudi Govt. should not contribute, like it does by donations of millions of dollars for constructing mosques and dawa centers, to Islamic proselytizing in Non Muslim majority countries. But we don't see this. Muslims even say that Islam respects other religions while Saudi sheiks issue fatwas saying Islam abrogates all other religions and Non Muslims and Muslims can never be equal in Islam. What Muslims say to infidels never really stands the test of validity. Of course, this kind of Islamic propaganda on Islamic tolerance is part of its ambition to dominate the world by imposing sharia and even if it is false and deceptive propaganda, it is completely legitimate in Islam as doctrine of taqiyya says. Over all, one way  traffic is simply an Islamic trait:

An Eritrean Christian is facing the death penalty in Saudi Arabia after being arrested for sharing his faith with Muslims.
Mussie Eyob was detained by the authorities at a mosque in Saudi’s second largest city, Jeddah, on 12 February. He had gone there to meet and talk with local Muslims after speaking about Christianity at the Eritrean Embassy for three days. Eyob was arrested for preaching to Muslims, an offence that carries the death penalty in Saudi Arabia. 
Eyob, who was initially assumed to have mental health problems, was examined by doctors, who confirmed that he is fit for trial and sentencing. He was then transferred to the notorious high-security Briman Prison. His family are very concerned for his welfare there. 
They visited Eyob on 20 March and found that he had lost weight, though he was in relatively good spirits. He said that he is ready to die for his faith in Christ. 
Eyob, who committed to follow Christ just over two years ago, felt compelled to share his faith with local Muslims, despite the danger. 
Saudi Arabia is a strictly Islamic country that follows an extreme and puritanical version of Islam, Wahhabism. The country claims that the Quran is its constitution and that all its laws and regulations are promulgated in line with sharia, which prescribes the death penalty for converts from Islam. Consequently most converts keep their faith secret.

Another such report: Saudis charges Filipinos for proselytising 

'Islamic emancipation' of women from Saudi Arabia.

Make temporary announcements to escape immediate criticism and then try to deflect attention from relevant issues. Standard Islamic procedure. Right after 9/11, Saudi Arabia, under international pressure, mentioned that it will be conducting municipal elections and women also can vote. When elections were conducted in the year 2005, women were not allowed to vote and instead, were promised that they could do so in next elections. But it turns out that, women casting their votes has to wait for more time, if at all they ever do so in future (one can read on this from here).

What is so un-Islamic about women voting? Well if they do vote, when votes are counted, votes cast by women have to be counted as equal to votes cast by men; but Islam says value of a Muslim woman is only half the value of a Muslim man and Koran says men are above women. Islam even says women are deficient in intelligence and religion too. Saudi law literally discriminates women in all fields like compensation in qisas: if maximum limit a Muslim man can be compensated for some injury or death is 100,000 rials, that limit is only 50,000 rials for women (one can read from here).

Another relevant news item is: Women cashiers face uncertainty
The few women in Jeddah working as cashiers are still doing so, but they fear that government ambivalence to the idea of women working in the service industry won’t protect them from being fired without notice due to their employers succumbing to social pressure, especially considering an official fatwa last year condemning any job where a woman might interact with a male customer, coworker or manager. .......

Protests in Bangladesh against equal rights to women.

Islam is the first one to give basic human rights to women, says Muslim apologists, and Indian Islamic scholar Ashgar Ali Enginner says it is indeed revolutionary. Islam has emancipated women from cruel pre Islamic ear in Arabia!! Islamic ulema (or scholars) have vested interest in promoting terrible image of pre-Islamic religious beliefs - but they over look the facts like Islam has adopted many pagan rituals like circumventing Ka'ba, running between hills, shaving of head, sacrificing animals, stoning of devil - values and way of life for the simple reason that is to justify its advent and what is in Koran as enlightenment they needed to project pre Islamic era as dark age; in simple words, it is age of darkness vs. age of enlightenment. Considering Islam's fondness to destroy every thing not Islamic in its path, it is quite difficult to establish facts and actual situation that prevailed  in pre-Islamic era.

If women are given basic rights or equal rights, why do we see such terrible images from countries like Afghanistan under Taliban (present day is not much different), Saudi Arabia and countries like Sudan? I recalled what is the actual problem in all these superfluous claims in my earlier article, women in islam. In line with mentioned protests, in that article, in Yemen against raising of minimum age for girls to be qualified for marriage, we have protests in 'secular' Bangladesh against granting more rights to women under the argument that such laws are against Koran; the great irony in all this is such kind of protests taking place in a country known for having only women prime ministers for much of its time.

Indian English Media is part of problem and integral part of corruption

Well, I am not supposed to write here on such topics like Anna Hazare's fight against corruption. But, what incensed me is the way english media was writing on this episode. This kind of reporting also proved my earlier observation that reporting of Islamic extremism by english media is not just guided by political correctness or some lofty principle like secularism (for which I stand firmly) but they themselves have become corrupt. Worst thing is, majority section of english media have arrogated themselves to appoint themselves as sole representatives of enlightened opinions and policies.

Very recently, when I was commenting on two blogs, one with regard to Egyptian protests and another with regard to spectrum scandal, I made this observation: English media is not going to co-operate in struggle against corruption. People have the right to feel that this political establishment is purely opportunistic and devoid of any broad principles; but what many do not realize is media is also part of this oppressive establishment. Media follows power and revenues. Unfortunately, many in India are bewitched by glamor and popularity of likes of Bakra Dutt's (and her likes) reporting with out any substance.

I read a telugu daily (Eenadu) which commendably was covering this episode on its front page and also on inside pages. But, english media? Just as an example, I am putting this piece that appeared in indian express:

Of the few, by the few  (written by some one with a name Pratap Bhanu Mehta)
Sometimes a sense of unbridled virtue can also subvert democracy. The agitation by civil society activists over the Jan Lokpal Bill is a reminder of this uncomfortable truth. There is a great deal of justified consternation over corruption. The obduracy of the political leadership is testing the patience of citizens. But the movement behind the Jan Lokpal Bill is crossing the lines of reasonableness. It is premised on an institutional imagination that is at best naïve; at worst subversive of representative democracy.
Who is going to decide those lines of reasonableness and how do you define them? It is pure arrogance to name this movement as subversion of democracy, that too with out bothering to go in to details.
The morality of fasting unto death for a political cause in a constitutional democracy has always been a tricky issue. There is something deeply coercive about fasting unto death. When it is tied to an unparalleled moral eminence, as it is in the case of Anna Hazare, it amounts to blackmail. 
What is worse? Taking more than 20 years for a bill to be initialized (not yet passed) or peaceful form of protest. Terming this whole struggle and exercise as blackmail gives away what this english media really values: revenues and profits and reporting with out any insights.
....But in a functioning constitutional democracy, not having one’s preferred institutional solution to a problem accepted, does not constitute a sufficient reason for the exercise of such coercive moral power. This is not the place to debate when a fast-unto-death is appropriate. But B.R. Ambedkar was surely right, in one of his greatest speeches, to warn that recourse to such methods was opening up a democracy to the “grammar of anarchy”. 
Functioning  constitutional democracy? This must be a cruel joke on ordinary people. To call inability to pass a bill in 20 years as functioning amounts to insulting intelligence of people.

Look at the guy's statement: 'this is not a place to debate ....'. If news papers are not a place to debate, where  should people debate. Actually, media does not like people questioning media itself.

His mentioning of the great Ambedkar is purely hypocritical, cheap rhetoric and deceptive too. In a proper world, what he said makes sense but great Ambedkar lived in a different period in different circumstances. He himself might not have realized that our political class along with media will become such corrupt like they were today. To quote great historical  people to shut down discussions and struggles shows lack of morality and ethics and also force in their reasoning.

Note 1: One can also read from on media coverage.

I just put up one article as an example because of lack of time. But if people come across some good and interesting, thought provocative ones, please email url addresses of those articles to  

Note 2 : I also called my friend in New Delhi to ask whether I can also turn up at the site of protest or hunger strike; he told me I am welcome but for now it was not needed. I just hope that such demonstrations will be held across India in all cities and towns. But I am not optimistic on this because many Indians have internalized and rationalized presence of corruption in our every day life.

For further reading: The company that Hazare keeps

The following one 'sense and senility' from is good. Some excerpts from it:
“If a poor child does not have any means for education, then how will Lokpal bill help? If a poor man needs help for medical services then he will call up a politician. How will the Lokpal bill help”? That is a statement attributed to Kapil Sibal (TOI April 12). 
The worrying aspect of all this is not Kapil Sibal's statement but a news paper reporting on it and not ripping apart those kind of statements.
Anna Hazare’s campaign has been called a comic revolution (Manu Joseph of Open magazine) and ‘rule of the unelected’ by many media persons. 
So media is an extension of Govt. or is a propaganda machine for people in Govt. It suddenly looks like we are being ruled by oligarchy; no, it is always like this.

Modern and multicultural Malaysia to pass its own blasphemy law.

Some Islamic scholars say that Islam prohibits infidels uttering the word of Allah and even touching Koran. But Allah is not a word that came with advent of Islam in the year AD 590 when one idle and lunatic man living on his wife's wealth thought that visions he was experiencing, probably because of some tumor in his  brain, were from some God - he himself was not sure about the name of God. History written by pious Muslims themselves suggests name 'Allah' was in usage and worshiped at Mecca too. Like in all matters, Islam simply claims monopoly on each and every thing e.g. it plagiarizes stories from old testament and new testament that too in imperfect way. How do Islamic scholars explain away such discrepancies, then? They state that both old testament and new testament were corrupted by early Jews and Christians.  One can go on writing on this subject, but its mentioning here is to highlight how Islam tries to shut down every thing, from criticism to questioning, that is in disagreement with Koran. That is precisely, Sharia law awards death penalty to people who doubt, question or criticize Koran, Islam's bandit prophet or sharia law itself. This is what Pakistan's blasphemy law is all about. And Malaysia wants to adopt too.

People who abuse Koranic verses are to be charged in Malaysia according to a news report (here). The report also mentions that Non Muslims can not object to Islamic daily calls for prayer however loud they are. Interestingly, the way it was being understood is purely reminiscent of Islamic supremacism. If a Non Muslim objects to such loud calls from mosques, Muslims might probably take to streets resorting to violence; so to avoid such things labelled as disharmony, discord, enmity, hatred......govt. feels that this kind of law is necessary.

Regarding so called 'abuse of verses', which version of interpretation of some verses amounts to abuse? Or what kind of evidence is needed to establish that abuse did happen? In Pakistan, it turned out that once rumors came out on some one committing blasphemy, it did not matter what court said ultimately as Muslims on streets are carried Islamic banner of death.

If one wants to know what might count as abuse then know that Malaysia, mostly Sunni, recently banned Shite (shia) Islam from propagating their beliefs.

'No compulsion in Islam'. A Christian in Pakistan given choice between death and converting to Islam.

A passionate quote from modern day Muslim apologists on freedom of religion in Islam goes like, "there is no compulsion in religion.(verse 2:256)" To recall, Islam gives three options to people of book (Jews and Christians): 1. convert to Islam 2. or pay Jizya and live like second class citizen by accepting humiliating conditions 3. or fight and die. Its choice to polytheists (like Hindus and Buddhists) is two fold: death or conversion to Islam. Among four schools of Jurisprudence, Hanafi differs slightly from others as it extends choice of paying Jizya and status of dhimmi to polytheists too. But, there is never any guarantee that even if infidels are paying Jizya and living in state of humiliation, physical security of infidels is 100% as history shows. More importantly, there can never be any equality between Muslims and Non Muslims as it goes with out saying disbelief in Islam is the worst form of corruption. To see how insecure lives of Non Muslims in Islamic societies will be - when some parts of sharia law are under implementation like blasphemy law of Pakistan - one needs to read the following report:

Christian man goes into hiding when told 'convert or die'. (or here)
“Convert or die”. Masih Gill, a Christian from the city of Mardan, in the province of “Khyber Pakhtunkhwa” (Northern Pakistan), was threatened with these words by a group of Muslims with whom he had been speaking, after the recent episode of the burning of the Koran in the US.
This event caused violent reactions in Pakistan (three churches attacked in a week) by Muslim extremists. Nearly one dozen UN guards were killed on April 1, while two were beheaded. Local sources say that Masih Gill simply defended his faith, saying that Christians respect all religions and do not nurture hostility towards anyone. The  Muslims then threatened Gill. They also said that they would charge him before Pakistani authorities with blasphemy  ......
The city of Mardan, in fact, is harbors numerous radical Muslim groups which terrorize civilians, especially religious minorities. “His story is one of many, and a fine example of the frustrations that Christians suffer daily”, explained Haroon Masih, Director of the Masihi Foundation......
The reason of some one burning Koran in US as cause for this kind of intolerance is just childish as many incidents of this nature were reported in the past too.

"Indians do not have large hearts like Muslims have.", Shahid Afridi clean bowls Prime Minsters cricket diplomacy.

Note: Updated on 06/04/2011.

Before or during or after the semi final match in the world cup between India and Pakistan, did any one notice rude behavior on part of Indian players or Indians in general that warrants Shahid Afridi's outbursts. The recent outbursts can not even be attributed to Pakistan's loss; only Islamic mindset of Pakistanis explains; yet again, this also explains how pervasive Islamic views - stated in Islamic doctrines regarding Non Muslims - among ordinary Muslims, and Muslim public, which is often referred to as representative of moderate Islam which does not exist. In an interview, Shahid Afridi said (here):
Days after winning the hearts of numerous Indian fans with his remarks after his team's loss in the World Cup semifinal, Pakistan cricket captain Shahid Afridi has said Indians are not as large-hearted as Pakistanis.
Afridi also slammed the Indian media for its "very negative approach" and said the Pakistani media was a "hundred times better" than its Indian counterpart. 
"In my opinion, if I have to tell the truth, they (Indians) will never have hearts like Muslims and Pakistanis. I don't think they have the large and clean hearts that Allah has given us," Afridi said during a talk show on Samaa news channel when he was asked about relations between the two countries.........
Lets see what Allah said regarding hearts of Non Muslims in Koran, or in general:

Verses 3:110 and 2:143:  Muslims are the best of all people and also are the chosen ones.....
Verse: 98:06: Non Muslims are the vilest of creatures.
Verses 8:22 and 8:55 : Non Muslims are the worst of Allah's creation and they deaf and blind too.
Verse 7:179: Non Muslims have hearts they understand not, eyes they can not see with and ears they can not hear with.....
Verse 6:43 : Hearts of Non Muslims are hardened by satan.
Verse 2:007 : Allah set a seal on hearts, eyes and ears of Non Muslims....

Oh, yes: Islam simply assumes itself as sole truth and then it views its relations with others as struggle between good and evil, light and darkness, order and chaos, truth and falsehood, God and devil.

Shahid Afridi also casts doubt on who is behind Mumbai shootings; on this Indians can thank liberal, secular- media and politicians like Digvijay Singh. For him, Pakistan is one ignorant, innocent and a victim too at the hands of a super power, USA. At the last count, Pakistan got more than 10 Billion Dollars from USA in return for its co-operation for war on terror but the kind of co-operation Pak. gave is too visible to be missed for all people except Pakistanis like Shahid Afridi.

Times of India reports Shahid Afridi saying that he was quoted out of context and misunderstood. It is quite awful how people after keeping their foot in mouth tend to fall back on this 'out of context' apology. May be we ought search for if there is hidden message of peace in original diaribe of Afridi.

Another thing I observed is that TOI has not allowed comments on its report of Afridi's outbursts but it allowed comments on its report of Afridi's explanation of his 'misunderstood' quotes.

Oldest Hindu temple in Australia is sprayed with bullets by Muslims.

Isn't Islam supposed to be tolerant? Isn't Islam teaching Muslims to live in harmony with Non Muslims? Aren't the Muslims, for the purpose of proselytizing, lionizing about how sharia protects Non Muslims when it actually discriminates and humiliates Non Muslims? Sharia! it is supposed to be practiced only in Muslim majority countries and Australia is a infidel majority nation, right. But, Muslims regard Allah as the sole sovereign of entire earth and universe and his sharia law should be applied every where and of course,Jihad is the process of making sharia as supreme law in the entire world. So, we have an example of Islamic tolerance towards others from Australia.

Temple which was targeted. 
Friday prayers outside a mosque in Sydney. Are these not a problem for traffic and public?

Will Islamic Jihad be resisted in West Bengal?

One can read the real life story of Gopal Das - a Hindu living in the dist. of 24 Paraganas (north) in West Bengal, how he lost his good fraction of his land to an Islamist in Jihad from the blog: south bengal This is not the first such case and will not be the last. Earlier, such land grabbings by Islamists from Hindus in rural areas were seen in the district of Murshidabad. Also notice that, this is the same district in which town Deganaga is in, where Muslims resorted to violence on large scale in last September.
