Ghandi

Love him or hate him?

Most commonly known as Mahatma Gandhi, this iconic man is seen by some as the father of modern India and by others as a traitor to India. This post is in response to the more scathing comments circulating in the social media that just don’t go away.

And looking at is life and the consequences of it one must remember that he was educated according to British indoctrination. Like so many Hindus of the time, he may not have questioned the British idea of an Aryan invasion lifting the intellect and capacity of Hindus to participate in a modern world.

With his further education in London, the British narrative probably became more ingrained within

Islamophobia

And does it affect one’s health?

Phobias are an extreme and often irrational fear of or aversion to something. Women are often terrified of mice or spiders, mice may carry some disease and some spiders are deadly and therefore must be avoided. Avoiding them or having them exterminated from one’s home is a sane healthy choice, screaming and fleeing is an over reaction.

Phobias are one of the most common mental illnesses in the United States. The National Institute of Mental Health suggests that eight percent of U.S. adults have some type of phobia. Women are more likely to experience phobias than men. Typical symptoms of phobias can include nausea, trembling, rapid heartbeat, feelings of unreality, and being preoccupied

Yasmeena Ali

Giving the finger to morality

This is a story that everyone should take note to to better understand how Islam functions, it’s cruel reality and implications for Islamic host countries. Born in Afghanistan during the Taliban regime and moved to the UK as a child aged 9, Yasmeena rebelled against the nonsense that ruled her life.  Yasmeena in her speech below gives  a synopsis of Islam and living as a Muslim inside ond outside an Islamic country.

What Yasmeena describes as common to the many thousands of people born Muslim and escaped when their sensibility and appreciation of life awakened. That is something that takes great courage as you can really turn their backs on their families and communities. But what is

Remembering 1947

The year of Partition and political expediency

Over the past ten years it’s been estimated that over one million girls have been sexually assaulted, raped and forced into prostitution by gangs of Muslim men in Britain alone. Throughout this time the authorities have been trying to be nice to the peaceful Muslims and pretend that this is not happening. All these young women have been denied justice but the situation is becoming so bad that the authorities are being forced to act. Investigative journalists have done the hard work of exposing these gangs, but the authorities are extremely lenient toward these criminals.

It’s not only in Britain, with the influx of Islamic refugees and migrants along with a hard

Women within Islam

The myth of social equity under Islam

The Quran says that men and women will be judged by Allah. This does not mean that they have equal rights and roles, or that they are judged by the same standards. There is no ambiguity in the Quran, the life of Muhammad, or Islamic law as to the inferiority of women to men, despite the effort of modern-day apologists to salvage Western-style feminism from scraps and fragments of verses that have historically yielded no such progressive interpretation.

After military conquests, Muhammad would dole out captured women as war booties or prizes to his men. In at least one case, he advocated that they be raped in front of their husbands. Captured women

Polygamy under Islam

A base herd instinct

A religion’s purpose is to connect with God but Islam does anything but that. Instead it teaches men to abuse children, women and encourages slavery and above all treat them in the most inhuman way possible. Obviously social pictures of a few rich and famous show bejewelled women who look very lavish but the reality is very very different inside the veil.

Majority of Muslim women, as much as 89% suffer more than any other women born under any other social system or so called religious faith. On surface and text books, news media and public statements talk of great love and peace and nobility towards women. However the reality is that women are considered

Ramadan

Its Origins and History

Muslims are told that the month of Ramadan is commemorative of Muhammad becoming “a prophet” and celebrated during the 9th month of the Islamic calendar. This practise was established as a Holy Month for Muslims after the Quran was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad in 610 CE on the occasion known as Laylat al-Qadr, frequently translated as “the Night of Power.

This is a month of fasting, prayer, and reflection for Muslims, but it’s also used an excuse to induce jehadi sentiments amongst the poorly educated to provoke and deepen their commitment to blind beliefs and the need for violence. In theory The act of fasting is said to redirect the heart away from worldly activities,

Ghazwa-e-Hind

The ideological battle over the states of Jammu and Kashmir

Pakistanis sacrifice goats before aircraft take off to ensure a safe flight.

The issue of ‘Ghazwa-e-Hind’ otherwise known as Islam’s Prophetic war against India is a subject that Islamic clerics don’t wish to discuss and something that indigenous Hindus of India know next to nothing about let alone the rest of the world where minds are preoccupied with other global disasters.

It is also a problem that confounds Indian politicians, academics and those in the military as Pakistan’s Military-Mullah Establishment continues supporting extremists with a clear intent of taking over Kashmir and in doing so provoking an all out war with India.

Pakistan is renowned for sponsoring terrorist

Are The Roots of Crime Biological?

A New Scientist Best Book of 2013. Winner of The Athenaeum of Philadelphia’s Annual Literary Award. Why do some kids from good environments become mass murderers? Is there actually such a thing as a natural born killer?

There are many theories about what makes people behave the way they do, but it comes down to a full belly, a stable family life and peace.

Adrian Raine, a pioneering neurocriminologist introduces the latest biological research into the causes of–and potential cures for–criminal behaviour. A few successful tests show that this approach can, indeed, work. On the island of Mauritius, for example, Raine and his colleagues provided extra nutrition, exercise and intellectual
