We are witnessing a trend of NGO’s taking pictures of their charity works. It is mainly done to attract donations so that more and more people gets benefited. On the contrary, if we think from the receiving end, it is the most awkward situation and the poor who receives the benefits tend to lose the social status.
We all know about the media’s attack on Islam and Muslims since decades. According to Nathan Lean, editor-in-chief, Aslan Media and a researcher at Georgetown University, “The media plays a strong role in promoting Islamophobia in the world.” It got increased after 9/11, reached its peak in India in 2014, and went beyond since the Corona disaster.
On 26th January 1950 India became republic with an aim to regain the title of “Golden Bird”. The political thinkers and educationists of those times striven hard to accomplish the dream of making India the great again and fought for the freedom. We got freedom with a challenge to build the great nation that depicts the example of unity in diversity.
In the recent judgment of the 2007 Ajmer Dargah Bomb Blast Case, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) special court has convicted three saffron terrorists, two were the former affiliates of RSS. Sunil Joshi, Devendra Gupta, and Bhavesh Patel are among the convicts out of 13 accused. Seven, including Swami Aseemanand, are acquitted.
The effects of utterly poor planning of the Modi government while taking the decision on demonetization is all well known to us. In the process to wage a war against the black money hoarders, the Modi government has utterly failed to protect the poor and middle class men who lead their day-to-day life on cash transactions. The small-scale industries and daily wage earners are effected to the core.
Since couple of years we are witnessing a row over beef. The real issue is not with the beef; it is with the cow. Cow is believed to be a sacred animal of Hindus and was restricted to be slaughtered in various empires including Mughals. However, the blood and honour of the human beings has been destroyed in the name of protecting cows.
In this 21st century, where the world respect the feelings of the people, yet the Islamic beliefs and tenants are questioned and degraded in the name of “security” and “protection”. Muslims find very difficult to follow their religious practice due to the atmosphere society has created, especially by the media. However, India is one of the few countries in the world who respects the religious feelings of the citizens and allow the propagation of those religious beliefs.
Dr. Zakir Naik, famous orator and televangelist on Islam and Comparative Religions, rightly pointed out when it was asked to him about ISIS. He said how can it be ‘Islamic State’ when it kills innocent human beings. The Glorious Quran says, “If anyone kills any human being, unless for a murder or creating mischief in the land, it is as if he has killed the whole of humanity. And If anyone saves any human being, it is as if he has saved the whole of humanity” (5:32)
When the Daily Star reported, obviously to create sensation and popularity, that one of the terrorists was influenced by Dr. Zakir Naik based on a video he shared last year. No matter what the terrorists have shared throughout their life, once if any terrorist shares anything related to celebrities, it becomes sensational news and media tries to pick it up and make news for their promotions.
From the millions who got inspired from him, how many are terrorists? How many have walked on the path of violence? The handful who chose the wrong path cannot get influenced by him as he regularly condemns all kinds of terrorist attacks. They haven’t followed the wrong path due to his lectures but they read junk articles and watch junk videos which are supported by the Anti-Islamic forces to malign Islam and instigate the youth to walk on the path of violence.
While watching news on Times Now I saw the news scrolls related to Mangalore and the name “Naik” appeared. I was confirmed, this news is about Dr. Zakir Naik which was related to the hashtag #CommunalDoublegame, the topic of Arnab Goswami’s Debate 1 (on 30th Dec 2015). The hashtag clearly displayed the intention of Arnab Goswami and his stance against Zakir Naik. But in the debate he crossed the expectations...
Recent incident in U.P. didn’t shake me at all as we all know the agendas of BJP and the right wings clearly. After Narendra Modi becoming the Prime Minister, the Right Wing has become more active than before. Last time we have seen the incident of Nagaland lynching for alleged rape, this time for alleged consumption of beef. No wonder we see these kinds of incidents in the future too. I say, O Muslims be ready to get butchered… it’s your time now.
We know the sluggish judicial system of India offering “justice” to the citizens after making them wait for long years – wasting the career of students and young professionals – without any compensation. Those who believed (including me) “law is equal to all” should get a shock after knowing the findings of recent study of National Law University.
The incident about the “vigilante justice” has raised strong questions against the security system of our country where an angry mob of more than 7000 (some reports 10000) people dragged an alleged rapist from the judicial custody, striped, pelted stones and lynched him. They lugged him 7 km away from the “high-security” Dimapur Central Jail and hanged the blood-drenched body to the clock tower of the city.
The election result today, February 10th, 2015, have shocked not only the people of India but the entire Globe. Out of 70 seats, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has won 67 with massive majority by creating a history and proving all the exit polls wrong in their predictions. The highest prediction was done at 48 seats by “Today’s Chanakya”.
It was sad to see the election results. NDA sweeping others across the Nation marching ahead to form the government. The moment I saw the results I felt pity on the Democracy of the country. It is obvious that the people of India were fed-up by the corrupt and incapable Congress government. But the alternative cannot be in the form of a criminal.
Many people were astonished and vexed about the Supreme Court judgment on Homosexuality (on 11-12-2013) while the others are exultant to see the Verdict. Both the section of the society failed to analyze the Supreme Court judgment on moral grounds. SC has not given this judgment on moral grounds but totally on the basis of Section 377 (Unnatural offences) of Indian Penal Code (IPC).
To appoint Narendra Modi as the Prime Ministerial candidate for 2014 race – and unnecessary elevate him - is the worst decision BJP has ever made.
“Elections are challenge for any political party. BJP is also taking it as the biggest challenge,” party president Rajnath Singh said on Sunday at a televised press conference. “I declare him (Modi) as the Chairman of Party’s Election Campaign Committee. We hope that BJP will emerge as alternative to Congress in the next elections.” The moment I heard about the decision made in a three-day dramatic conclave to appoint Gujarat Chief Minister, Narendra Modi to hold the BJP flag in 2014 race. I said the decision was worst ever.
It was shocking to hear about a person who was awarded Death Penalty by the Supreme Court and the President, Pranab Mukherji, rejected his “mercy” petition. I was as normal as usual hearing the news of hanging the accused till death. I was wondering there is a hue-and-cry about the current situation. Neither I had researched about Ajmal Kasab nor had I done of Afzal Guru but when I read some of the articles, I started researching about his life and I was shocked...
After the continuous pray and efforts, 32 convicted out of 61. “The sitting Naroda MLA Mayaben Kodnani was sentenced to 18 year of imprisonment for criminal conspiracy and murder, while Babu Bajrangi was sentenced for life imprisonment till death.” The Times of India Reported
Seven out of nine arrested in Malegaon bomb blast case in 2006 were released on 5th November, 2011 proving themselves innocent. After the rigorous imprisonment of five years, the court has given the order to release seven well-educated Muslim boys who were arrested in association with the bomb blast. The young boys have already spent the five years of precious life behind the bars – taking all sorts of tortures - for the crime they didn’t even think of! They have lost the most beautiful moments of life and buried all their desires to live as normal well respected citizens of the society.
In the city of Bihar, Forbesganj, the shocking incident led to the killing of a young boy and the killer is professionally trained by our Indian government (to protect the civilians and maintain peace in the society). Yes, I am talking about the Police. A police shot down a young boy (age 18 or 21) and when he saw him alive he brutally killed him to death in front of all, including SP of Araria district, Bihar. I was shocked to see the brutal killing by police.
