No Honour – The men have to wash their shame with blood

A 10 year old girl was raped in Afghanistan by a Mullah within a Mosque.

Warning!

TW – Rape, Medical

The problem with people who think the zenith of human endeavour was reached during the reign of a tribal leader in the Middle East circa 600 is that they ignore real progress humanity has made since then. Yes I know what people will say.

Mohammed is a Paedophile and this man was simply emulating him. Read the rest of this entry »

Conservative Nonsense about MH17

As the tragedy of the Malaysia Air flight unfolds there are two stories I must mention. Tragedies really.

As many people here know my Girlfriend (Hera) is… a Malaysian. So I had a few questions about her safety in all of this. Read the rest of this entry »

Kosher Ultrasound

I normally link videos directly but this one’s rather spectacular despite being locked to the site.

TLDR? Ultrasounds during pregnancy are not good. Read the rest of this entry »

Pope Francis Says “1 in 50 are Paedophiles”

Age of Kali – Re-writing History

The Indian Council of Historical Research is a body that receives funding from the Indian government with regards to history. A lot of it’s work involves development of history textbooks.

One of the things I have mentioned is that Indian history is often warped to portray Indian history in a way more positive light.

The two examples I quote are Subash Chandra Bose, a man who threw his lot in with the Empire of the Sun and Nazi Germany. Yes, the man is a fascist and even has airports named after him…

And the other is a tale about the first Mughal Emperor, Babur. Babur’s story is told as one where he lead his troops to drink from a stream, leaving those who plunged their heads into the water behind as he regarded them as unaware and thoughtless. That was the source of his victory.

Not the first usage of cannons in Indian warfare that he brought with him that effectively changed how war was fought.

History is rewritten to be more romantic and more fantastic rather than realistic. And it allows for this fantasy that the past of India was this paradise ruined by the Brits. And no where is this seen by the new head of the ICHR, Yellapragada Sudarshan Rao was a member of the Hindutva group, the RSS and his fundamentalist leanings shine through in this interview.

Age of Kali – For India to Progress, the Village Headman Must Die

Gandhi was wrong.

See? As an ethnic Indian, I never learnt Indian history through the lens of India. This is a problem for a lot of Indians as we shall see in a later article, but for now? Trust me, Indian history classes are fraught with politics. People add their own spin on things.

Gandhi’s words have become gospel because of an unwillingness to look at him as a man who has his flaws, weaknesses and mistakes.

Want to know something? Me and Gandhi probably would not have got along. You see? Gandhi rejected a lot of things from the UK including vaccination. I am sure someone would come trying to insist otherwise so here you go… Read the rest of this entry »

*Headesk* – Bad Anonymous

No. Bad! You don’t post this to me after I speak about a family member getting treated for cancer.

[What ensues is a medical related rant from Facebook, I figured that it invoked enough about medicine to be useful. Also? What the hell Anonymous? Thought you liked sticking up for people against bullshit merchants]
