Qaeda says Pope wants to pull Turkey from Islam-Web


I still don’t understand why can’t these people use some brains and appreciate some one else work too.

DUBAI, Nov 29 (Reuters) – Iraq’s al Qaeda wing on Wednesday condemned Pope Benedict’s visit to Turkey as part of a crusade against Islam aimed at pulling Turkey away from the Muslim world.

“The visit of the Pope in reality is meant to add momentum to the crusader campaign on the land of Islam after the failures of crusader leaders,” the al Qaeda-led “Islamic State in Iraq” said in a statement posted on the Internet. It said his visit to the predominantly Muslim country was “an attempt to extinguish the flame of Islam among our Muslim brothers in Turkey and to wipe out their Islamic heritage… and to guarantee that they stay in the quagmire of secularism established by … (Kemal) Ataturk”.

India’s Christians dig deep for graveyard plot


Cemeteries in India are either full or nearing capacity and Christian’s citizens make up less than 2 percent of India’s 1.1 billion people are already casting about for places to bury their dead, Reuters reported. The shortage of burial space is tied to the many factors, government denial to offer more land saying other religious groups would make similar demands, second growth of Christianity in some states of India due to the conversion to some low caste Hindus and third restriction on building a new cemetery due to environmental restrictions. Many people are forced to pay fortune to book a plot for the family members and for themselves too. Like in Bihar one of the most poorer state of India asking people to donate up to 60,000 rupees to reserve plots. So for now, that’s the sorry state of affairs in India.

KOLKATA, India (Reuters) – India’s Christians are running out of space to bury their dead, leading some to pay small fortunes to book their final resting place in a relative’s grave.

Churches are asking people to empty remains from graves of family members who died more than 25 years ago and store them in specially created vaults, a senior official of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of India told Reuters.

“We foresee a major crisis across India and are asking people to empty graves and shift the remains,” said Donald H.R. De Souza, a former deputy secretary general of the conference.

Radical Islam rising in the West


So anyone is listening?

And reason why they are upset about western countries:

  • Refuse passengers suspected of carrying duty-free sealed alcohol bottles to avoid “cooperating in sin,”

 But you can buy world cheapest Alcohols from Dubai (Islamic country) Sound crazy to me. Many restaurants (Indian Restaurants in UK and in USA owned by Muslims and they serve the drinks with high price tag. IS this not sin? No because it generates very good money.

  • Islamists are staging demonstrations against legislators’ actions to ban veils. While the legislators seek to increase public security, the Islamists protest that the ban violates their “religious freedom”.

Quran does not require that women wear a veil, so how its violets religious freedom?

  • Somali cab drivers in Minneapolis, Pakistani minicab drivers in London and Muslim taxi drivers in Melbourne have refused to transport blind passengers with guide-dogs after the Saudi religious police issued a ban on dogs.

So Blind people can’t live like a normal people? Guide dogs are their best friends. Refusing blinds passengers with guide-dogs is discrimination. There is word called Humanity I guess it comes first right in normal way of life?

Western countries, in spite of its faults, are the best place to live on earth. If you do not believe me, then ask the millions of Muslims desperate to leave their countries, their families and their societies to come to Europe or USA or Canada or Australia.

WASHINGTON: Radical Islam has made inroads in most countries with a Muslim majority, and its influence is steadily growing in many Western nations, fuelled by “petrodollars”, according to Rachel Ehrenfeld, director of the American Centre for Democracy.

Writing in the Washington Times on Thursday, Ehrehfeld notes that in many European countries, Islamists are staging demonstrations against legislators’ actions to ban veils. While the legislators seek to increase public security, the Islamists protest that the ban violates their “religious freedom”.

And while, she maintains, the Quran does not require that women wear a veil, Qatari scholar Yousuf al-Qaradawi claims that banning the veil “is a glaring violation of both Islamic teachings and relevant international charters of human rights which regard clothing as a matter of one’s personal freedom”.

Increasingly, Muslim restrictions on alcohol and dogs also effect Western non-Muslims. Somali cab drivers in Minneapolis, Pakistani minicab drivers in London and Muslim taxi drivers in Melbourne have refused to transport blind passengers with guide-dogs after the Saudi religious police issued a ban on dogs. They also refuse passengers suspected of carrying duty-free sealed alcohol bottles to avoid “cooperating in sin,” emulating Iran’s president Mahmoud Ahamadinejad’s well-publicised refusal to attend a lunch at the United Nations in New York because alcohol was served.

Islamic activist admits he donated cash to jailed historian who denied the Holocaust


MPAC (Muslim Public Affairs Committee), which strongly denies allegations that it is Anti-Semitic, has showed their True Face: Anti-Semitic. Founder member of MPAC Asghar Bukhari, which describes itself as Britain’s largest Muslim civil rights group, sent money to Irving (David Irving, the controversial historian who for years denied the Holocaust took place) and urged Islamic websites to ask visitors to make donations to his fighting fund. I still don’t understand how anyone can deny holocaust, its just shame. People now days I guess forget one word “Humanity”. Shame!!

One of Britain’s most prominent speakers on Muslim issues is today exposed as a supporter of David Irving, the controversial historian who for years denied the Holocaust took place.

Asghar Bukhari, a founder member of the Muslim Public Affairs Committee (MPAC), which describes itself as Britain’s largest Muslim civil rights group, sent money to Irving and urged Islamic websites to ask visitors to make donations to his fighting fund.

Bukhari contacted the discredited historian, sentenced this year to three years in an Austrian prison for Holocaust denial, after reading his website. He headed his mail to Irving with a quotation attributed to the philosopher John Locke: ‘All that is needed for evil to triumph is for good people to stand idle.’

Some respite for women, at last: Protection of rights bill gets through NA


Putting an end to a scuffle but not to the longer battle, Pakistan’s lower house of parliament voted on Wednesday to amend the Hudood Ordinances, the country’s religious-based laws for rape crime. The Bill must be approved by the upper house of Parliament before it becomes law.

Before, women who reported rape were compelled to produce four male witnesses to the crime or face charges that they had committed adultery. If the law passes the upper house, it will replace that burden of proof, deemed both virtually impossible and misogynistic, with standard evidentiary procedures.

But as normal some fundamentalist are against of it, Pakistan 6 Islamic parties are threatening for nation wide protest for what they called this new law nothing to do with women’s protection but a conspiracy of west.

Like opposition leader and MMA secretary-general Maulana Fazlur Rehman said it is a `shameful attempt to alter the teachings of the Quran and Sunnah and to turn Pakistan into a free sex zone”

So Mr.Rehman tell me one thing how many men have been convicted just want to know out of curiosity under your 16th century law? Do you think rapist do rape in broad day light in front of 4 people (well men)? Do you know a woman is raped every two hours and gang-raped every eight hours in Pakistan? At present your current rape law is giving man free sex zone anyway, where women can’t get protection and even can’t get justice.

It is shameful that in this century woman should be subjected to such treatment in your own country. Why should there be a debate or demonstration on such an obvious issue. Men and women are both deserving of protection under the law. Changes in law are for better society, nothing to do with your religion. So don’t start screaming and kicking for nothing. Grow up and learn some things, please don’t exploit religion for your personal vote bank politics.

ISLAMABAD, Nov 15: The government rushed a signal women’s rights bill through the National Assembly on Wednesday amid a boycott by religious parties and some drama after the draft survived a prolonged controversy and an apparent last-minute intrigue.

Slogan-chanting members of the Muttahida Majlis-Amal (MMA) walked out of the house in protest before the vote on the Protection of Women (Criminal Laws Amendment) Rights Bill, which they said was contrary to Islamic injunctions about punishments for zina (adultery and rape). But, they appeared wavering in carrying out an earlier threat to resign from parliament.

The People’s Party Parliamentarians (PPP), the main opposition party, gave a rare support to the ruling coalition in passing the bill, which seeks to protect women from the widely complained misuse of the controversial Hudood ordinances about zina (adultery and rape) and qazf (false accusation of zina) enforced in 1979 by the then-military ruler General Mohammad Ziaul Haq.

Iran ‘is training the next al-Qa’eda leaders’


World Banker to the Terrorist organization!

Doesn’t surprise me at all, Well I was expecting this sort of news and confirmation long time ago. What you can expect from this terrorist state. Iran, led by fundamentalists Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, poses a serious security concern to the international community. Recent report is wake up call for world community.

Iran is seeking to take control of Osama bin Laden’s al-Qa’eda terror network by encouraging it to promote officials known to be friendly to Teheran, The Daily Telegraph can reveal.

According to recent reports received by Western intelligence agencies, the Iranians are training senior al-Qa’eda operatives in Teheran to take over the organisation when bin Laden is no longer leader.

Suicide attacks against the spirit of Islam: Musharraf


At last, someone talking some sense? Might be for some people not for me, he is two face leader who have done so much harm then peace. You reap what You sew!! Mr.President!!

Just have look on his recent book Line of Fire is probably the only autobiographical work penned by a serving head of State. While opinions differ on his motives for writing it, there is near unanimity in India and Pakistan as well, that it is full of half truths and white lies.

In my opinion, He is gone Mad, he knows very well his political career is about to finish. So President Musharraf probably thought to write a book and make some Dollars in hurry. He feels, being an army man he did not expect to be questioned on what he wrote or could not be asked to produce proof. Since he is not a democratically elected leader who feels his hands are tied by the constraints of a democratic system, he does not have to worry about the direct or indirect consequence of his words. The book might have boosted President financial standing but it had neither served the cause of truth nor the interests of your own country.

He himself quoted in many news conferences that there is no terrorism in Kashmir its freedom fight going on, so he clearly refused to recognize the terrorism in India. He calls terrorist as freedom fighters. In his book on the account of the Agra Summit he blamed Atal Ji for the failure of summit, but eventually truth came out and he gone back into the hole. The main reason of failure of that historic summit was General refusal to recognize the terrorism and he was very insistent that Kashmir terrorist are “Freedom Fighter”.

Even US state department report on the global terrorism over the year 2000, noted that General Pervez Musharraf’s military government, like the previous Pakistani government, supported the Kashmir insurgency, and Kashmiri militant groups continued to operate in Pakistan, raising funds and recruiting new cadre.

Sooner or later it will all come to an ignominious end. He is playing a very very dangerous game.

Supporting terrorist and allowing terrorist to set up a camp in Pakistani soil is one side of this so called Peace Devotee Leader and Giving lecture about Peace, Islam, Love and Harmony in South Asia Region is other side of this leader.

You reap what You sew!!

Islamabad, Nov. 14 (PTI): Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf has said the concept of suicide attacks was against the spirit of Islam and his government was determined to fight terrorism in all its manifestations.

The President condemned suicide attacks during his visit to an army camp at Dargain on the border where 42 soldiers were killed in a suicide bombing last week. Expressing his government’s resolve to continue the fight against extremism and terrorism, he said the country would suffer if the government fails to check the menace.

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.

onereligion.jpg

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,”

Christian Population Falls in Holy Land


The number of Christians who live in the area where their religion began is in decline. Growing numbers of Christians are leaving the lands where their religion began. Their reasons are different; varying sometimes by sect, sometimes by nationality–but the change is unmistakable. A hundred years ago, Christians made up 25 percent of the population in the Middle East. Today, estimates put that number at about six percent and falling. Call it part of a modern mass departure, the steady flight of the tiny Palestinian Christian minority that could lead, some predict, to the faith being virtually extinct in its birthplace within several generations. The protection of Christians in Islamic-majority countries is one of the most delicate problems facing the Church. So question is Vatican’s top foreign policy official are listening about this “particularly unhappy” situation of the decline of Christians in the Middle East?

BETHLEHEM, West Bank (AP) — The death threat came on simple white fliers blowing down the streets at dawn. A group calling itself “Friends of Muhammad” accused a local Palestinian Christian of selling mobile phones carrying offensive sketches of the Muslim prophet.

The message went on to curse all Arab Christians and Pope Benedict XVI, still struggling to calm Muslim outrage from his remarks on Islam.

While neighbors defended the merchant – saying the charges in the flier were bogus – the frightened phone dealer went into hiding, feeling less than satisfied with authorities’ conclusion that the Oct. 19 note was probably a harmless rant.

Islamic hip-hop artists are accused of indoctrinating young against the West


I thought, music of any sort is banned in Islam, second till now I know music is about spreading love and peace. So these groups are doing totally wrong things both from Islam perspective and also from music perspective. Spreading hatred and motivating young people for terrorism is an act of cowardness. Spreading full of hatred music is very dangerous as this gives very wrong idea to youths. Times Online Reports:

HIP-HOP and rap artists are teaching young Muslims the ideology of radical Islamism through songs about the war in Iraq, the oppression of Muslims and the creation of an Islamic state governed by Sharia, or religious law.

Intelligence agencies have identified music as a “tool for indoctrination”. The phenomenon began with an American group called Soldiers of Allah. The group has since disbanded but its music and lyrics remain popular on the internet. Other groups in Britain, France and the US have been identified as giving cause for concern. Many use the derogatory term “kufur” to describe non-Muslims.

Madeleine Gruen, an American intelligence analyst, highlighted the lyrics of a British group called Blakstone as a possible gateway to extremist politics.

Ms Gruen has studied how music, internet forums, boardgames and fashion have been used to radicalise youths.
