History repeats itself

The Inquisitive Mind

“Antisemitism”— was a word familiarized by Adolf Hitler during the World War II. To be put in simple words an antisemite is a person who has an irrational fear of Jews. A keen study of the World War II makes us better understand the words — genocide, exodus, evacuation, gas-chambers and other related holocaust jargon. I once laid my hands on Hitler’s autobiography “Mein Kempf” but could not get to complete it due to the amount of negativity and hatred filled in the pages. An analysis of Hitler’s religious views reveal the fact that he was born to Catholic parents and later on in life he moulded his religious views and beliefs as per his political needs and ambitions. This malleable stance of Hitler towards religion may indeed be a reason for his sadistic behavior.

Terrorist Darren Osborne shows society’s deep intolerance and hypocrisy

Stand Up 4 Islam

Bismillah-hir Rahman-nir Raheem (in the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful)

Darren Osborne, the killer and attacker at FInsbury Park Mosque, shows the utmost intolerance for peace-abiding Muslims

It’s finally happened? Actually no! Muslims have been suffering from Islamophobia, fuelled by the media and intolerant sections of society, for almost two decades now. The sickening and revengeful attack by Darren Osborne upon innocent, peace-abiding worshippers at Finsbury Park Mosque, is just a high profile reminder of what Muslims in the UK have had to deal with for many years.

This is just an open example of what many Muslims, and other people from a minority background, have known existed in UK society – a deep and indiscriminate hatred for Muslims; a villifying sentiment that has run through society and been allowed, by the Government, to grow and grow. The media has fuelled this and, with their constant negative portrayal of Muslims, the media should shoulder some of the responsibility of what…

Rohingya Muslims Facing Genocide Amidst World Silence

The Human Lens

Earlier in January, a United Nations report cited damning evidence on the Burmese Army’s ethnic cleansing campaign against the country’s Rohingya Muslim minority. This is not the first time that such news have emerged out of Burma whose powerful military has been successful in hiding  its decades old gross human rights abuses in Muslim populated regions including the Rakhine.

UNHCR’s representative Mr John McKissick said, “Burmese troops have been killing men, shooting them, slaughtering children, raping women, burning and looting houses, forcing these people to cross the river” into neighboring Bangladesh.  On the other hand, Bangladeshi government is actively discouraging Rohingya Muslims from entering the country since if they all leave this would imply that Burma would become successful in achieving its ultimate goal of the ethnic cleansing of Rohingya Muslims. Those who are stuck behind and still remain behind are suffering the inhumane atrocities done by Burmese military and…

Vimy Ridge, Syria and War (short post)

Muslisms

It’s been 100 years since the great Canadian conquest of the Battle of Vimy Ridge. Today it’s still a piece of national history and Canadian pride. Four Canadian divisions faced an uphill battle against German troops at Vimy. The goal was to push the German army back from a strategic position along the ridge. A four day offensive led to 3,598 dead, but a major strategic victory for the Allies. It also cemented Canada as a country of its own, rather than just another British colony.

A long time has passed since World War I. And yet, despite being called “The War to End All Wars”, nothing ended. If anything, it began a period human history where war became an ongoing machine, where the our goal was to develop more elaborate methods of killing each other.

As long as people will be around, there will be war. It’s a…

A Message To Those Welcoming Missile Strikes in Syria

The Human Lens

The Human Lens condemns this latest act of evil and idiocy that has taken place in the already escalating Syrian war conflict. The USA has commenced missile strikes on Syrian soil deeming that dictator Bashar Assad has crossed a many too lines to let it be.

As a human rights defender I cannot stand in silence as spectators shower praise and applaud a rogue nation’s unconstitutional and unlawful attack on Syria. Let me be crystal clear, I have no doubt that Bashar Assad is a brutal dictator who has committed human rights crimes against his own nation and is also complicit to the use of chemical weapons.

But the latest US strikes on Syria are not a humanitarian mission from any perspective, regardless of the fact that Trump is painting them as the best thing he ordered for Syria. Let us not forget America’s great role in the many wars…

Many Christians do not know that in the Holy Quran Jesus  is mentioned by name twenty-five times.  For example:

.. We gave Jesus the son of Mary Clear (Signs) and strengthened him with the holy spirit. .. Quran 2:87

Behold! the angels said: “O Mary! Allah gives thee glad tidings of a Word from Him: his name will be Christ Jesus, the son of Mary, held in honor in this world and the Hereafter and of (the company of) those nearest to Allah. Quran 3:45

.. Christ Jesus the son of Mary was (no more than) an apostle of Allah .. Quran 4:171

 And in their footsteps We sent Jesus the son of Mary, confirming the Law that had come before him .. Quran 5:46

And Zakariya and John, and Jesus and Elias: all in the ranks of the righteous: Quran 6:85

The Quranic Titles of Jesus
