“You can’t have occupation and human rights.”
― Christopher Hitchens
Non-believers want to see the evidence for the existence of god. But believers never can produce a single scientific evidence. They often bring tomato, potato, cow, donkey or a piece of bread etc to show that the word God is written there. And to them, this is the proof for the existence of God.
A chef has recently found the word god written inside an eggplant.
Miracles of Islam is amazing. Muslims find the Arabic words Allah and Muhammad almost in everything. Such an innovative community!
See, Muslims have evidences for the existence of Allah. Some people claim that the last one also proves that Allah exists.
Chris Boudreau, a grieving mother from Canada, traveled to Europe this last week to learn about ways to spare other families whose children risk the same fate as her son. Damian Clairmont died in January at age 22 while fighting for the jihadist group Jabhat al-Nusra in Syria. Clairmont, Boudreau said, converted to Islam to help him recover from depression after he attempted suicide when he was 17. He eventually told his mother he was leaving for Egypt to learn Arabic and study as an imam.
Clairmont’s story is not rare. The International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation (ICSR) at King’s College London says that jihadists in Syria have enticed as many as 11,000 recruits since 2011.
Why do young men get attracted to Islamism? I always ask this question. Burkhard Freier, chief of North Rhine-Westphalia’s intelligence service, says “Salafism is a lifestyle package for young people because it offers them social warmth, a simple black-and-white view of the world, recognition by their peer group–basically everything they lack in real life.”
Anne Speckhard, author of Talking to Terrorists, spoke to the psychology of radical Islam in an interview with WORLD News Group. “It gives a course of action, it gives a rationale for revenge, and it gives an out,” she said, adding that jihadists tend to feel extreme calm and endorphin-driven euphoria after swearing to kill infidels or even themselves. “I call it short-term psychological first aid,” Speckhard said. She interviewed more than 400 detained terrorists in Iraq between 2005 and 2007.
Speckhard said, “understanding radical Islam as an emotional crutch for aimless men or depressed youth like Clairmont is important: “No one just adopts a militant ideology out of the blue.”
A Malaysia man fought with Afghan jihadists against the Soviets. He said, “I was a very young man, I was bored in this small village, and it was a chance to see the world.”
True for some people, but I think all jihadists do not become jihadists only because they are depressed. 9/11 terrorists were rich, and successful. They were not aimless dudes. I never heard Osama Bin Laden was a depressed man. He had money, followers, women. Is Abu Bakr al Baghdadi depressed? I doubt it. They were indoctrinated with Islam since chilhood.
There are many reasons for young men to join terrorist organizations. Some to get rid of loneliness, depression, fucked- up life. Some to take revenge. Some definitely find violence exciting. Most terrorists, I believe, become terrorists, because they believe Islam is the only true religion and it is their religious duty to kill enemies of Islam and make the world the land of Islam. They of course think by doing this they will be rewarded in heaven. Political terrorists do the same, they believe their political ideology is the best ideology, and it is their political duty to kill their opponents, and then rule the country without any problem. Political terrorists also get rewarded by powerful politicians. Killing for an ideology is very common, either for political ideology or for religious ideology. However much we say that religion should be a personal matter, but it is almost impossible to make it a personal matter. Politics is hardly personal.
It is such a good news.
But I wonder whether it would work at all. Dowry, Khap panchayet, casteism etc. are illegal in India, but indians practice those with impunity. I am afraid fatwas will be practiced with impunity too.
Setting price on anyone’s head has been illegal but imams never have any problem setting price on my head. Nobody questioned them. Police rather protected them when they issued fatwa.
On 6 June 2005, Imrana, 28 years old at the time, and the mother of five children, was raped by her 69-year-old father-in-law Ali Mohammad. Soon after she was raped, a local Muslim panchayat (council of elders) asked her to treat her husband Nur Ilahi as her son and declared their marriage null and void. Imrana defied the panchayat’s ruling and continued living with her husband.
The leading Islamic seminary Darul Uloom Deoband also issued a fatwa, which quotes from Quran 4:22: wa la tankihoo ma nakaha aaba-o-kum, “And marry not women whom your fathers married”, and not distinguishing between rape and adultery, said that as a result of her father-in-law’s act, she should now be treated as the mother of her husband and she could no longer live with him even though Imrana had not married her father-in-law. She was still married to her husband when she was raped by her father in law therefore the fatwa provided by the panchayat’s disregard the Islamic rulings against rape and the punishment for the rapists. Due to such fatwa Imrana is in a way being prosecuted instead of her rapist father in law as she is being ordered to leave her husband and start a life with her rapist. The fatwa is a clarification of the ruling by the village leaders who disregarded the Islamic teachings for such cases for the sake of shunning Imrana who is thought to have brought shame to the community by having sexual intercourse with her father in law.
Such an insane fatwa was accepted by Indian Muslim community and supported by so called liberal secular Muslim friendly Hindu politicians.
Fatwas are there to oppress women, to suppress and denigrate women. To humiliate women. Fatwas are against women’s freedom. Against women’s education, work, against women’s love, sex, marriage, against women’s choice, going outside, using mobile phone, against talking with men, against their clothes, their happiness, against whatever they like. The truth is, Sharia court and fatwas against women would be continued if misogyny is continued in society.
Indian Muslims are not happy with Supreme Court’s decision. They want sharia court
and their right to issue fatwas against women’s rights, human rights, and freedom of expression. They want their right to practice barbarism.
Ordinary Iranian women created a Facebook page called stealthy freedom or secret freedom.
Islamic Revolution started 35 years ago. Since then it has been illegal for a woman to leave the house without wearing a hijab or headscarf. The punishment is a fine or imprisonment.
An Iranian woman said, “My hair was like a hostage to the government.” It is so true.
“My problem is not having to wear the headscarf. My problem is not having a choice,” writes another Iranian woman on the Facebook page.
I say bravo girls, you go girls! You take off your hijab forever, not for a few seconds. Not secretly, but openly. But would they be able to do it? So many girls and women are executed in Iran for not practicing Islam properly.
I feel so sad. Women, only because they are women, they are not allowed to enjoy the rights and freedom they deserve. Women have to take off their hijabs only for a few seconds to know what freedom feels like. Human species sucks. It has not yet made its women free from the cage it has made for women. I am ashamed of human species.
I am against banning and censorship.
But I supported burqa ban because burqas are dark prisons where women must not be placed for committing no crime. I oppose China when it violates human rights but I don’t oppose when China discourages Muslim children to have religious fasting. You should not think I am only against Islam, but not against other religions. I would be as happy as I am now if all other religious fasting get banned, I sincerely want inequalities, injustices, brutality and barbarism of all religions to be banned. Ramadan fasting is not barbaric or brutal. But it is definitely related to superstitions. I believe everybody has the right to be ignorant and superstitious. And I also believe in everybody’s right to mock ignorance and superstitions. Banning is not just mocking, it is much more than mocking. China seperated state from religion, China is now trying to seperate public schools and offices from religion. In a secular state religion should be private matter.
China wants to protect students’ wellbeing and prevent use of schools and government offices to promote religion. If teachers participate in religious activities, China believes, they will instill religious thoughts in students or coerce students into religious activities. It is better that teachers don’t participate in religious activities.
Ramadan is the month of fasting, and of jihad too. Muslim extremists in Xinjiang region use the month of ramadan to promote jihadi activities. They are terrorizing in Xinjiang. Not only that, there are some other things of Xinjiang Muslims that government doesn’t like! For example, Xinjiang Muslims demand for independence. This reminds government of Tibet.
China believes that students should not participate in religious activities; they should not study scripts or read poems at script and choir classes; they should not wear any religious emblems; and no parent or others should force students to have religious beliefs or partake in religious activities. China sounds intolerant. But we know that it is better to protect school students from being brainwashed with religion. China says fasting is detrimental to the physical wellbeing of young students. The most important statement that China government has made, is: religion and education should be kept separate and students should not be subject to religious influences.
This makes sense.
Students and civil servants in China’s Muslim northwest, where Beijing is enforcing a security crackdown following deadly unrest, have been ordered to avoid taking part in traditional fasting during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.
Statements posted in the past several days on websites of schools, government agencies and local party organizations in the Xinjiang region said the ban was aimed at protecting students’ wellbeing and preventing use of schools and government offices to promote religion. Statements on the websites of local party organizations said members of the officially atheist ruling party also should avoid fasting.
“No teacher can participate in religious activities, instill religious thoughts in students or coerce students into religious activities,” said a statement on the website of the No. 3 Grade School in Ruoqiang County in Xinjiang.
Oh My Goosebumps! Goan minister says, no bikinis, no short skirts, no pubs. He says men get crazy for women, law and order problems occur if women wear bikinis. What should be done? Ban bikinis. Very simple. Instead of banning bikinis I wonder why they don’t punish those morons who don’t respect women and create law & order problems? Or, why they don’t ask men to be blindfolded if it is too hard for men to control their sexual urges after seeing women on beaches.
The minister is saying that wearing bikinis is not Goan culture, so women must stop wearing bikinis. Misogyny rules. Women are not allowed to wear bikinis today. They will be forced to wear burqas tomorrow. Misogynists belong to every religion and every culture. Woman’s body is the property of patriarchal society. Men decide what women should and shouldn’t wear. One of the biggest tragedies of mankind is men’s culture and honor lie in women’s breasts,buttocks,vaginas. I pity women-hating cultures!
