Pakistan ‘kidney bazaar’ thrives


For years, India has been known as a “warehouse for kidneys” or a “great organ bazaar” and has become one of the largest centers for kidney transplants in the world, offering low costs and almost immediate availability. Now in Pakistan poor people doing the same, the kidney bazaar or kidney market is flourishing. Rich people from all over the world exploiting these poor people. Many poor in this country are living on less than a dollar a day. They are always in debt and thus forced to sell their organ to rich people to get rid of debt and poverty but unfortunately terrible cycle of debt and poverty and unemployment never let them get out of these unwanted debts. Then middlemen and rich people exploit these people, offering huge amounts for a kidney. Often the sum promised is not given, and the costs of medicines after the kidney removal are so high that people lose much of what they earned.

JANDALA, Pakistan (AP) — Nassem Kausar has done it. So, she says, have her sister, six brothers, five sisters-in-law and two nephews.

Each has sold a kidney to a trade that has led Pakistan’s media to dub the country a “kidney bazaar.”

“We do this because of our poverty,” said Kausar, who is in her 30s and lives with her family in Sultanpur Mor, a village in eastern Pakistan.

A kidney nets the donor $2,500, sometimes less than half that amount, while recipients — some 2,000 a year — pay $6,000 to $12,000, compared with $70,000 in neighboring China.

Sri Lanka ‘recruits child fighters’


Children – the most innocent segment of our global community are forced to fight in Sri Lanka. First it was LTTE who was recruiting Child Soldiers now UN is sayings Government of Sri Lanka is also recruiting Child Soldiers. What the hell is happening, if this report is true then I would like to see other countries to put pressure on Sri Lankan government about this and put tough sanctions against them, if they don’t stop abusing children’s. They can’t use children’s for their own politics. Enough is Enough Stop Child Soldiers.

 

 

Sri Lankan government forces are recruiting child soldiers to fight against the Tamil Tiger rebels, the United Nations has said.

A senior UN official said the troops had been rounding up children to fight with the renegade Karuna rebel group.

Col Karuna leads a breakaway faction of the Tamil Tigers, which have themselves been accused of using child soldiers.

Sri Lankan security forces say they are “perturbed” by the “completely misleading” allegations.

Does God’s Need Protection? My opinion on religiously motivated violence:


Well it hard to understand why now a day’s 99% violence and terrorist attacks happen under the name of religion. Does any religion say that’s you should bomb country or attack people of different religion because they are different colours, got different culture and believe in different faith?

Recently when Pope commented some thing on sensitive issue, we had seen the reaction of people; a nun was gunned down in Somalia after a cleric declared that “whoever offends our prophet Mohammed should be killed on the spot by the nearest Muslim.” Yemen, where conversion away from Islam can be punishable by death, was threatened to cut diplomatic ties with the Vatican. More than half a dozen of churches have been burned down. Al-Qaida in Iraq warned Pope Benedict XVI on that its war against Christianity and the West will go on until Islam takes over the world, and Iran’s supreme leader called for more protests over the pontiff’s remarks on Islam., and only two three days ago we heard the news that some Hindus fanatics forced Christians to bow head in front of Hindu God.

Well I don’t want to comment on what Pope said in his famous speech, nor do I want to go in details about Hindu fanatics who forced the Christians to bow heads in front of Hindu God or what Muslims preachers preach about religion and what Muslims should do to protect Islam from non believers.

But my question is why all these people talk or start violence in the name of religion? Saying we need to protect our religion and God, it’s our duty. Total Lie’s

 

Does our God (Jesus Christ, Lord Krishna, Lord Ram, Allah and Guru Gobind Sahib) need any sort of guards or protection, to protect themselves, their believers and their preaching? No

 

If you have believe in your religion, follow the Holy books and have faith in your God, then you should understand that God does not need any protection, he can protect himself and also other human beings, God can see who is doing wrong and who is doing right, and he can do justice. We have no rights to do justice on behalf of him. We are created by God! God created us for his own pleasure. God’s justice creates and sustains the conditions for life. God has made an all-inclusive covenant with all creation.

 

People who call them God’s army or protector of religion, faith, believes and God, in any religion, I don’t think they hold their god as a highest authority as in my opinion God does not need any sort of protection.

 

God or you can call what ever you believe in has never forced and will never force anyone to follow his religion, believes or teachings e.g. Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism Christianity and Islam, so why these people (so called army of God) is trying to force their views on other peoples of different believes?

 

God has made religion but I guess he never had clue that followers of the religion will bring bad name to his teachings.

 

God is Eternal; God does not fear death because it is a gateway created by God.

 

God don’t require any army or so called religious preachers who preach hate towards other community and religion.

 

What does God require of us?

 

Act justly, love tenderly and walk humbly with your God. Our peoples need peace that restore right relationships, preserve responsible communities, shrink hate and inequalities, and allow space for all of creation (religion) to flourish in its diversity.

 

“Lord, we need your protection,”
