Babar ki Aulad and Politics of Abuse in India


Abuse is never justified whatever the objective. In fact, it is a form of crime. Tragically, the law in India is spineless to respond to arrogance of Hindutva leaders’ abuse against Muslims. On the contrary, louder the pitch of abuse, stronger the loyalty of nationalism. Sickening narratives make Muslims completely hopeless and defenseless.

The rule of abuse does not last long. It will have its end if victims’ (Muslims) ignore the mental instability of abusers, for one cannot reason with abusers about facts of life and history.

The on-going parliamentary election in India may be dubbed as the biggest exercise of electoral democracy on the earth but in real, no democracy can be religiously genuine if its oppressed class is endlessly abused in a flagrant manner.

Violent Foreign Policy of Saudi Arabia Toward Animals


History will never forgive Saudi Arabia for its savage foreign policy toward animals. The conservative Kingdom has banned all camels and sheep coming over to its border from Qatar in retaliation to its political fallout with the tiny neighbor (Qatar).

How un-Islamic for Saudi Arabia to be so cruel to the animals! This speaks volumes of the mind of the Arabs…particularly the regime of Saudi Arabia. Now the chaos and carnage in the Arab world don’t surprise me. If they cannot have mercy upon camels and sheep, it is stupidity of us to expect mercy from them toward fellow Arabs/human beings. 

Muslims’ Fear and Talk of Reforms Cannot Go together


Media discourse around Uniform Civil Code (UCC) is articulated in such a way that makes us believe that Muslims are more loyal to Islamic system of justice than the secular one.
This misplaced public perception is truly tragic and unfortunateFear and reform are antithetical to each other. Both cannot go together. To bring about social reforms, first it is necessary to create congenial atmosphere. Unfortunately, on this front, the Modi government in power has miserably failed. Instead rhetoric from leaders of the ruling party have only fueled to widen the gulf.

When is it an Act of Terrorism?


When is it an act of terrorism?Violence committed by Muslims seems to be automatically labeled a terrorist incident, while those committed by others are not.Assailants killed innocent men, women and children in Paris. The world was outraged. Some of my friends changed their profile picture on facebook in solidarity with France. Great expression for humanity indeed! Isn’t that?Yesterday Assailants killed more than 15 people in California, America. Mass shootings in the United States are common phenomena. In fact, people killed in reckless and mindless shootings in America outnumber the casualties by ‘terrorism’ in the traditional sense of using the term for violence by Muslims.
