ExpoIslamia


A big event in
Manchester, today thousands of Muslims and Non Muslims will attend an event organized by Islamic Forum ExpoIslamia, a convention whose stated goal is to present Islam and its teaching in purest way to the world.

 

In my opinion it’s a good start, to find more information about this event, when I visited on their website to see who are organizer and speakers, I was shocked to see they had invited Azzam Tamimi, who openly showed and raised his support to suicide killings, Hezbollah, and all Jihads.

 

You can see Azzam Tamimi, video in which he declared his support to Jihad and Hezbollah.

 

 

Second speaker second speaker is Yvonne Ridley, former British journalist for daily tabloid, converted to Islam about 3 years ago after being captured by Taliban’s in
Afghanistan. Now political activist, member of Respect Party, headed the George Galloway. In recent meeting she declared

 

“Respect Party is Zionist Free Party, if there is any Zionism found in Respect party, it will be hunted down and kicked out. We have no time for Zionist”

 

In my earlier post I was talking about, how we can and other Muslims leaders present Islam in purest way. In my opinion this was good opportunity to show the world that Islam religion is peaceful religion and has nothing to do with terrorism and violence. But inviting these radicals as speakers and mains guest, they had lost opportunity.

 

My question why we should we go to this event, when I know people who are speaking are full of hate for other community and religion.

Islamophobia: Yes it is Present in Western Countries !


Passengers to
Manchester bound Monarch Airlines, refused to allow jet to take off, until two British Asian Men are thrown out off Plane. What a sad day, the people got scared by two Men because they were talking in Arabic, so talking in Arabic is terrorism now? I do understand since 9/11 the world has changed for ever, hate towards each other has increased. New terms come in our dictionary Islam phobia. This sort of act does show that Islam phobia has been present in western culture.

 

“Mutiny as passengers refuse to fly until Asians are removed. Passengers refuse to allow holiday jet to take off until two Asian men are thrown off plane. British holidaymakers staged an unprecedented mutiny – refusing to allow their flight to take off until two men they feared were terrorists were forcibly removed”

Islam phobia definition. 

There many definitions have been put forward for word called Islam phobia. 

According to
Runnymede Trust:
 

The Runnymede Trust has identified eight components that they say define Islamophobia. 

This definition, from the 1997 document ‘Islamophobia: A Challenge For Us All’ is widely accepted, including by the European Monitoring Centre on Racism and Xenophobia. 

The eight components are: 

1) Islam is seen as a monolithic bloc, static and unresponsive to change. 

2) Islam is seen as separate and ‘other’. It does not have values in common with other cultures, is not affected by them and does not influence them. 

3) Islam is seen as inferior to the West. It is seen as barbaric, irrational, primitive and sexist. 

4) Islam is seen as violent, aggressive, threatening, supportive of terrorism and engaged in a ‘clash of civilisations’. 

5) Islam is seen as a political ideology and is used for political or military advantage. 

6) Criticisms made of the West by Islam are rejected out of hand. 

7) Hostility towards Islam is used to justify discriminatory practices towards Muslims and exclusion of Muslims from mainstream society. 

8) Anti-Muslim hostility is seen as natural or normal. 

For a summary of the 1997 report, see here 

By looking this sort of act and things, I guess Muslims leader must start doing some thing sensible and positive instead of complaining about government policies. They should tell and send out the messages to all young Muslims that it’s about time that people started treating themselves as citizen of thier respective country first and foremost. Then put religions into second or lower ranking. When ever I traveled to any Islamic countries, I do respect their tradition and culture, so I expect the same should apply to Muslims in Western countries.

 

They have to earn faith, else anyone look like Asian appearance will be treated as Terrorist.

Remembering Major Dyan Chand Ji [The Hurricane]


Best hockey player ever, famous as a “magician of hockey” and “Wizard of Hockey” for he exerted complete control on the ball. So great was the magic of Dhyan Chand Ji that the
Tokyo officials broke his hockey stick to search for a magnet inside, a lady from the audience asked Dhyan Chand Ji to play with her walking stick instead. He scored goals even with them. With his magic passing and unbelievable stick work he helped
India to win Gold Medal in 1928, 1932 Olympics. In 1936 Berlin Olympics he captained Indian side and scored six out eight goals scored against Germans.
India won the final on 15th of august 1936 beating
Germany by 8-1, seventy years ago.

A greatest sportsman ever, and undisputed Kind of Hockey. Dyan Chand Ji was to hockey what Don Bradman was to cricket. Even once Sir Don Bradman said after watching Dyan chand Ji hockey, that he scored goals like we scored run in cricket.

 

There cannot be two opinions about the fact that Major Dyan Chand was one of the craftiest of hockey players that
India has so far produced.

 

Such days have faded away …. yet the memory of Dyan Chand Ji the greatest hockey player produced by
India-will live on.
