Ahmed Saleh Al Furaih – miss you

زبير،،،، واينك،،، ما شفناك ولا سمعناك من زمان (Zubair, where have you been? Not seen you nor heard you for a long time. His call would come if I didnt call him in two weeks.)

Ahmed Saleh Al Furaih, his call wouldn’t come any more. If you ask me if he was my friend, that’s a wrong term to refer to him, he cared for me like a father did, a gem of a person. Passed away because of malignancy.

I can’t find words to describe how close he was to me and how much I miss him. I never felt myself any less than a member in his family circle, his brothers, nephews, his father, uncles and neighbors. Such a compassionate person, according to his sister in law, (as told my wife) that you can’t find anyone as kind as him, so true.

He forced me stay in his house for four months, got angry, rather upset with me when I skipped a meal. It was so hard to convince him that I can’t be sure of getting home for lunch because of meetings. It shook my heart when his son told me on fourth day after his demise that he loved me like a son.

I used to be invited well in advance for the Eid party and other get-togethers along with his family including all cousins, uncles, nephews, brothers, etc. I was the only non-Saudi there. Despite being the host, he held me beside him in order for me not to feel odd. Though I was hesitant, he’d see to it that I’d dance their folklore steps along with all youngsters, with sword in hand.

There was open invitation for lunch in his aunt’s house after visiting his father over Arabic coffee every Friday, the invitation is still there, dinner with his friends every Sunday. He took me to the aviation museum and we walked around. Number of exhibitions we visited along with his daughter Taala.

Plethora of gifts for my wife and children when they came from Makkah. Whenever I came from India, he’d want me to bring Tetley tea.

Can’t quite put the feelings in words. Can’t quite believe that he’s no longer there. But yes, as his son said, he’s in a better position than we’re. اللهم اغفر له و ارحمه و يدخله في الجنة الفردوس.

Ahmed Saleh Al Furaih – miss you

#JNURow – beyond selfies

There was a metaphor I heard when I was a young, an elderly uncle told his brat nephew: “don’t eat while you’re defecating”. The child gushed back, “I’ll dip the bread in the ***t and eat”. The entire political protagonists in India appears to be like that rogue kid who wanted to dip the bread in ***t and enjoy eating it. Quid pro quo is naive and your rating can get worse than your opponent.

Let alone the legality of whether or not the sloganeering in JNU suggesting to subvert the state (if at all as suggested by some corner) render to charge section 124a IPC, simply terms sedition. Supreme court in the past have asked whether the accused had perpetrated any violence to backup his ranting to allow sedition charge to be ascribed.

The sloganeering in #JNU was carried out, as reported in the media, by some other guys, never heard Kanhaiya Kumar was among one of those creepy blokes out there ‘trying’ to overthrow the state. They aren’t booked yet. Oh yes, he was heard advocate subverting the ‘authority’ of RSS and similar corners ‘adjudicate’ (of late) quite often that you’re anti-national. Indeed, that’s a plausible reason for you to clench your fist and practice punch on ‘anti-national’s face, that proves you’re national.

Why aren’t the sloganeers brought to book yet? On what ground Kanhaiya been detained? The Police could conclude that it was seditious very quickly and brilliantly.

article-hknsihskkc-1455540178More melodramatic orchestrations were taking place in Patiala House court premises in the next days, two days in a row. The same police (who were so brilliant) couldn’t, rather didn’t, nab (seemingly) lawyers in the court premises who hit many journalists including a woman journalist. Did the Police need much more evidence than the several video footages being played all around and indeed plethora of eye-witnesses? The same thug was allowed second time in the court.

Kanhaiya was beaten up again while being produced in the court and repor427088-kanhaiya-watermarktedly heard was slapping inside the court room too. What are we talking about? Such a dangerous precedence being setup.

What do all these render those who have common sense to fathom? Isn’t it an obvious dereliction of duty from the Goverment? The onus is on the Home Ministry of the Central Government as the Delhi Police is under HM. Couldn’t it probably be otherwise given silent nod to the right-wing army to take the duty of the police and nail the ‘anti-national’.

The right wing fascists are just freaking out everywhere demeaning and mocking our judicial system, law enforcement and all of it. A rather thug, happened to be a legislator, let Scott free after assaulting a student activist. He further went on to say and reiterated it on record with Rahul Kanwal that he’d shoot the guy(s) who were sloganeering. As he claimed, even if he was first hit, who gave him the legal right to assault back? No video has yet floated wherein O P Sharma was being beaten up, it’s the other way around. Why is this thug still roaming on the streets? To be elected comes with a lot of responsibilities and accountability.

Parliament attack was undoubtedly an act against the state and indeed I completely support death sentence rather than spending vehemently to keep the perpetrator(s) in prison to serve his sentence. At the same time, our constitution entitles us the right to have academic discourse and scrutinize whether or not the judicial process was properly done or not that makes our democracy stronger, not weaker.

We don’t want our country to run by a group of rogues and thugs who consider anyone who have a difference of opinion as anti-national and (love to) eliminate them. They feel are the cops and judge themselves. Right wing fanatics are getting carried away with their psychofrenic euphoria. Wake up loonies, the 31% is shrinking. In other words, those who academically and ideologically descent with you are now over 70%. Don’t just get carried away clicking a lot of selfies.

#JeSuisCharlie – Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) is being tarnished, not by the cartoons, but the (claimed) protagonists

Looks like I’ve got to pull up the excerpt from the old article that I wrote sometime ago on blasphemy row took place in Pakistan and there were a lot stir on air related to Islam is evil and so on. You know what it’s. Being a Muslim who believes in Qur’an and Prophet (PBUH)’s teachings, I condemn in the strongest of language and tone the killing of the cartoonist,JeSuisCharlie, in Paris.

Such perpetration doesn’t represent Islam or mainstream Muslims who adhere to Qur’an and Prophet (PBIH)’s teachings. The most unfortunate matter of fact is that those who’re claiming to avenge the ‘defaming’ cartoon drawn by JeSuisCharlie are actually demonizing Islam and Prophet (PBUH) himself who taught the message of love, compassion, inclusiveness, tolerance and even patience being half of the faith. The terrorists should understand that Islam’s pristine messages and Prophet (PBUH)’s legacy can’t be dodged smudged or smeared by these cartoons by ignorant people. Islam’s message is way powerful enough to nullify all these flimsy critics which doesn’t have any merit in itself at all.

#JeSuisCharlie #ParisShooting #parisattack Nasrajan Jalin
A simple poem by my sisterly friend Mrs. Nasrajan Jalin

You terrorists who did the cold blooded murder in the name of Islam in fact have committed even way larger blasphemy of the Prophet (PBUH) who forgave boundlessly against the atrocities perpetrated against him personally and his followers then, taught us patience is half of the faith.  Which prophet has taught you to rebut sarcasm, satire and critics with automatic guns? You didn’t execute any Islamic value or teachings at all by this heinous crime. Blasphemy laws in many countries invoked notoriety towards Islam which is contrary to its principle itself. It’s undoubtedly against Islamic perspective to harm the person who blemished Islamic ideology, Prophet(s), Qur’an, etc.

Forgiveness is what Islam teaches. Prophet Mohammed’s (Peace Be Upon Him) companions stomped to kill a Christian man who peed in the Masjid where Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) asked them to exert patience and suggested them to flush there so that the pee gets cleared off. I would suggest those militant Muslims(?) and critics to study Prophet(PBUH)’s history where the time before the prophecy, Hijra (flee to Madina) until the first war ‘Badr’. You would learn the magnitude of patience exerted by Rasul (PBUH) and he purported patience. Prophet (PBUH) went ahead said “Patience is half of faith.”

Islam has not asked to chop the blasphemer. The news reflects that Islam purports death sentence for blasphemy; also reported that contemptuous words and deeds against Prophet Muhammed(PBUH) comes under blasphemy perspective. This is absolutely contrary to the fact. Contempt of Prophet is misuse of freedom in Islamic perspective though; not unforgivable sin. Neither the contemptuous person is not entitled to any punishment nor any proof supporting the punishment be found in testaments.

If anyone has used any scornful words against the Prophet, a Muslim is expected to view it as a misunderstanding is all. The primary responsibility of a Muslim to debate or admonish such people to convince them of Islam and do about erasing the misunderstanding they have of the Prophet. There must be a reason by which Micheal H Heart chose Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) to be the most influential person in the world. Leave the prejudice aside.

There is no way that the majority of the 1.8 billion odd Muslims around the globe are waiting to blow themselves up and destroy rest of the human kind. Observe the Muslims you know and interacted with, study what is said from testaments rather than from bigoted articles written by anathema.

I’m not here for gutter game or whataboutery and score some brownie points by defending the atrocities done in the name of my religion and community at all. We objurgate it more than you do. Also to spread the message of compassion, love, inclusiveness, tolerance Islam teaches comprehensively,not from cherry picked verses.

Terror perpetrated by anyone is terror and same scale be applied for anyone who perpetrates. Realize the double standard where the replica of perpetrations committed by different community members are termed ‘Crime’ and ‘terrorism’ when it’s done by a (claimed) Muslim.

#JeSuisCharlie – Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) is being tarnished, not by the cartoons, but the (claimed) protagonists

Everyone is born as Muslim

At the outset, I am not a AIMIM protagonist, neither do I represent @asadowaisi’s political view. However, in the recent spark where @asadowaisi made a remark that everyone born is Muslim and later the school of belief changes according to circumstances, it is just a perception in Islam as per the testament i.e. Qur’an. There is a fundamental difference in what #RSS’s Mohanbhagawat and comrades like Mr. Subramanian Swamy @Swamy39 have been gushing; they enforce Hinduism on everyone out there, which is an offence not a perception. Mr. Owaisi @asadowaisi himself categorically mentioned that compulsion isn’t there in Islam. In fact, Islam is against compulsion to enforce/accept faith.http://quran.com/2/256 Therefore, don’t generalize and even compare Mr. Owaisi’s statement and Mohan Bhagvat’s statement. What’s @Swamy39 and comrades have been advocating? To throw Muslims to Pakistan in case they don’t accept Hindutwa principle, Mr. Owaisi not only asked for coercion, but also categorically mentioned that there is no enforcement and it’s one’s free will and so on.!!

In Soorah Al-A’raaf, Verses 172-173; ( http://quran.com/7/172-173 )Allah explained that when He created Adam, He caused all of Adam’s descendants to come into existence and took a pledge from them saying, Am I not your Lord? To which they all replied, ” Yes, we testify to It:’

Allah then explained why He had all of mankind bear witness that He is their creator and only true God worthy of worship. He said, “That was In case you (mankind) should say on the day of Resurrection, “Verily we were unaware of all this.” That is to say, we had no idea that You Allah, were our God. No one told us that we were only supposed to worship You alone. Allah went on to explain That it was also In case you should say, “Certainly It was our ancestors who made partners (With Allah) and we are only their descendants; will You then destroy us for what those liars did?” Thus, every child is born with a natural belief in Allah and an inborn inclination to worship Him alone called in Arabic the “Fitrah”.

If the child were left alone, he would worship Allah in his own way, but all children are affected by those things around them, seen or unseen.

The Prophet (PBUH) reported that Allah said, “I created my servants in the right religion but devils made them go astray”. The Prophet (PBUH) also said, “Each child is born in a state of “Fitrah”, then his parents make him a Jew, Christian or a Zoroastrian, the way an animal gives birth to a normal offspring. Have you noticed any that were born mutilated?” (Al-Bukhaaree and Muslim).

I don’t understand why people have hiccups to what’s perceived as per Islamic belief that every new born is Muslim which doesn’t harm anyone nor deemed to target anyone at all. It’s just a perception and anyone is entitled to have their perception.

We relegate on a sentence that too twisted besides of what Asaduddin Owaisi spoke for 90 minutes reportedly. He said ‘everyone’, but media twisted it to be ‘every Indian’ on the headline whereas the essay says otherwise. Even NDTV did their best to twist the headline to get more mileage.

Nonetheless, I feel Mr. Owaisi, considering his brilliance and intellect, having known the way media works, at least some sections in there, it could have been avoided considering the given circumstances in India. However, I reiterate that whatever he spoke then was fully coherent and warranted, no agitation as it nowhere misled at anyone.

Ms. Suchitra Vijayan wrote a very beautifully poised piece in The Hindu today. “Islamic difference and radicalization’. Although the article isn’t directly related to this subject, however, it’s connected in many ways or the other. http://www.thehindu.com/…/comment-articl…/article6760854.ece

There are pseudo academicians who just make passing remarks like Wahabi radicalism and so on. It’s so surprising if at all anything exist like one. None of these people who allege such remarks substantiate their claim categorically. Mohammed Abdul Wahab was an Islamic scholar who reformed a very perverted society along with Al Saud family who established The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Everyone is born as Muslim

Ain’t we reading adulterated history books?

There are so my cults I come across quite a daily basis for instance when you tweet who just come and attack you for being a Muslim or advocate Islam. They’ve their own prejudice about Islam and Muslims without studying the surroundings from an unbiased source or from the referred scripture or booked, they rather prefer to contain with their predetermined reservations injected to them.

How do you relate religion and or community when you’re defending own mother land? Is it to do with religion in any angle at all? Some zionist friend of mine always tried to twist his contention as a religious conflict in Gaza, he finally felt it more convenient to remove me from my friends’ list and block me out than rebutting to the rationale and truths I put up time to time.

The RWF in India who polarized the elections on the religious tags and finally they culminated their win having been planned for decades meticulously, better to say in an unscrupulous manner. The methodologies and approaches quite emulates that of Hitler and comrades then. Who does not know Joseph Goebbels!!

They should rather study a bit about history like where millions of Muslims were massacred in Philippines and similarly millions of aborigines were wiped out from Australia.

If anyone who’s sincere in his critics rather than mere ranting shall read Prof. Robert Pape’s Dying to Win: The Strategic Logic of Suicide Terrorism. He analyses each and every suicide bombing cases and concluded that 99% and more of the suicide bombers blew themselves up for a politically motivated strategic cause. There had nothing absolutely to do with the religion at all.

Why aren’t the bigots referring to the bloodbath in Burma, Sri Lanka, Thailand all were perpetrated against Muslims by Buddhists? In short, they jump the guns to term the perpetrations committed by a non-Muslim is a crime and if it’s done by a Muslim named person, it’s terrorism.

What has USA been doing in the Middle East for over a decade now? Their blatantly decorated lies about Saddam’s WMD and such stuffs!! They just wanted to eliminate Saddam who advocated to trade oil in an unified Middle Eastern currency and take away some oil establishing Iraq governance under their control. It’s just the replication occurred in Libya too.

When American invaded Germany during the world war II, they planned for 2 years before the invasion where they constituted OHRA 50 days before the invasion. However, the top officials of OHRA then testified that they literally had no planning and further to the invasion, they never listened to OHRA’s direction in running Iraq. A lobby led by VP Dick Cheney within Bush’s administration got things done without even consulting him, neither was he interested to know. This clearly shows their intentions which is nothing but evil and their personal benefit for USA and their pockets.

Hateocracy of Modi Bhakts

It’s very obvious for any prudent to figure out what was going on. Rajdeep Sardesai had a very clear stand and perspective when it comes to the terror and he dared to term Hindu terror/saffron terror when it comes to the terror perpetrated by Hindu groups.

There is nothing a man could do despite of his position when you’re ended up in a mob that can even lynch you. I’m sure Rajdeep must have restrained himself to the maximum limit. It’s quite natural for anyone to defend for his self-respect when it goes beyond the head. He’s a human being after all.

Rajdeep has been one of the very few journos who dared to call spade a spade. He didn’t bow even when the so called Modi Wave was lingering as many other channels were slowly going chameleon way.

Look at the powerful and mighty way of gaging the entire Network 18 house, Reliance just bought Network 18!!! Anyone with a bit of reasoning and rationale can easily figure out how the deal must have been done. No surprise even if there was threatening to acquire the channel. It’s the capitalistic way of gaging. Of course, Radjeep and Sagarika shelled their shares in Network 18 too. We all know the kind of hard work Rajdeep has put in to bring up Network 18. It was such a professional channel until we started noticing India 9 slowly tilting toward a Pro-Modi stand as Rajdeep stayed away mostly and replaced with Bhupendra Choube who always possessed a pro-RWF stand.

We patriot and secular Indians standby you Rajdeep. You’ve a long way to go, India needs you

Robbing in the day light

Image – for the auto drivers to demand double of the meter fare is a common precedence in Cochin. You’re ought to avail the service at the fair as shown in the meter. These rogues would behave precisely like robber and you’d end up in paying as he demanded. You may not necessarily have time to take them be booked or hail a cop for help. 

How many of you bothered to call up the Police department and inform them. They’re at help and want to help. ACP in Cochin tells me that people are not lodging complaints. I rebutted that our system makes the people want to stay away and they found it earlier to pay the double fair. We should improve in a way using the technology so that the litigant doesn’t have to walk in the station to post a petty complaint. 

Remember, this is not a matter of a few 10 INR currencies we could easily give away to the poor auto driver. But, it’s a encroachment of the legitimate right we’re entitled to. Pay the well mannered auto fellow something extra to help him, he may not demand.

 
A Police man just called me on phone with respect to the complaint I gave on phone yesterday. They have held the auto lad and asked what I want them to do. I said collect the excess amount he collected and give it to poor and penalize him according to law.
 
A commuter says: “That’s awesome progress. I should have taken pics of all the journeys I did last weekend”
 
That’s what… Police wants to help. But, ACP told me that people just get away abusing them and pay as demanded. But, not bothered to lodge a complaint.
