The new Gregarion Calendar has started (it has nothing to do with Muslims, since we follow the Islamic Lunar calendar ) – and I have decided (if even for a little while ) to rise from my imposed hibernation. Is … Continue reading
ASHAMED !!!!! I think, my views are totally echoed in the following link.
This victimization has been carried out systematically for generations upon generations. So it does not surprise me to see a democratic government throwing down its Hindu fundamentalist governments’ radical principles’ down the throat of tens of thousands of Muslims in India.
Isn’t it ironic, that a Muslim country like Dubai, allows its residents and expat community to enjoy the benefit of coexisting in harmonious relationship with hundreds of nationalities and religions, even the added benefit of purchasing alcohol and pork from certain supermarkets, while a ‘DEMOCRATIC’ country like India, imposes what its citizen’s CAN AND CANNOT eat ~ just so as NOT to hurt the sentiments of the Hindu population.
Just like there are several Muslims, who indulge in alcohol, we have hundred’s of non-muslims, who relish beef and mutton. How does the sentiment of one particular community take priority over the sentiments of another group of communities ?? On what basis ? The Government has NEVER been able to ban the sale of alcohol or cigarettes ~ which have been proved to be the key figure to cause several fatal diseases, yet it addresses a baseless issue of ‘meat consumption’ as its priority !!
First they paid the ‘week’ Muslims to embrace idol worship and now this large mob tortures a Muslim man who had to transport a cow from point a to point b to get him to say, Jai Sri Ram.
But, the accused, even if he was a defaulter, was inhumanly punished during a mob trial. The mob not only ganged up to ‘teach’ him a lesson, but also hurled communal abuses and dared him to convert and asked him if he would eat pork.
What is this brutality if not human rights violation ?
Is the police system so impotent that any group of people can easily take law in his own hands ? Not one news channel has picked on this atrocity ~ leave aside highlight it on headlines !!
Considering I am my Hindu counterpart, my feelings resonate as ” Ok so Beef-ban in Maharashtra beacuse it hurts my religious sentiment. But my religious seentiments gets hurt only when Indians eat, I have no problem when people from Russian, China and Arab Countries will eat it. Hence I have only banned it in Maharashtra, and however will continue to export to Middle east, China, Russia etc etc.
India one of the largest beef exporting country, one of the biggest U-turn taken by BJP government post 16 May – 2014. They have campaigned Pin…k revolution (end of beef export) before lok sabha election. However in just 9 months India’s beef export has grown by sound 16% post 16 May-2014. So I will continue to export it, because it generates revenue and it did not hurt my religious sentiment as it is eaten by non-Indians.
Beef exports grown up by 16% post 16 May-2014.
Whenever animals gets slaughteted, its skin goes to a Leather factory. But people who are demanding this ban should stop wearing Leather shoes, belts, purse. In places where people can’t kill healthy animals, they injure them, their legs or even poision them, not for Burger King but for Leather.
And also in new budget excise duty has been reduced on leather items, so you can were more leathers.
There are 6 major suppliers of Beef in India.
Out of 6 owner, only two eats beef and 4 are;

Its not at all religious ban, its a political and taken conisdering high deemand of beef in overseaase countries to gain more money..!!
Can they stop exporting it to oversease??
This is one video, very close to my heart. You’ll understand why.
This video put me to shame deeply. And this is NOT the first time, that I have noticed, extravagance and lavishly laid food, being dumped at the end of the day.
I understand, how sometimes, food get leftover after a marriage celebration or after a party, but I don’t believe, it needs to be dumped. Every city has areas, which, the less privileged inhabit. Why cant this food be packaged to them ? There are animals and birds too, who can benefit with it. But throwing precious food is NO option.
I wonder how the Prophet (sallallahu wa alaihi wa salam) would react to this !! Why have we lost fear of Allah swt who is so totally displeased with wastage ?? May we not displease Allah almighty so much that he may bear his wrath on us. Ameen
This video is powerful. It is deep and if you possess an ounce of empathy, as a human being, you will join me, in condemning all the atrocities, that we ‘the super intelligent race’ has caused on ‘everything’, we come in contact with.
WAKE UP HUMAN BEINGS !!!!!
This world belongs to EVERY creature that Allah ALMIGHTY created.
STOP being selfish.
This world has witnessed enough of your GREED, LUST AND LUDICROUS ACTIONS.
Its time to show that we human beings have a fraction of HUMANITY buried somewhere deep within us !!!!
This world is HOME to you as much as it is, to the ant stalking in your garden.
STOP abusing ANIMALS ~
Stop the senseless breeders of cats and dogs !! Enough cats and dogs, roam the world, looking for a warm cuddle and some affection. Stop being biased to one breed ~ and the breeders WILL DISAPPEAR !
Dog fighting and cock-fighting is as barbaric as what the Romans, engaged in, for entertainment ~ It enrages me to think, we call ourselves, civilized !!
Stop the senseless poaching of Rhinos and Elephants, in Africa.
Stop killing dogs and sharks to fulfill a special meal desire, in the Far East.
Stop your insane killing of seal pups in Canada.
Stop slaying crocodiles and snakes to use in your exotic brands,
Stop the madness of white lion breeding and eventual killing.
Why does the world, still believe that getting a lion to behave like a kitten in a circus is amusing !! Its repulsive !! You are stealing the dignity of these magnificent kings of the wild !! These regal animals deserve their rightful thrones in the jungles and savannah ~ not a pathetic caged life !!!
Lions and tigers, were meant to roam and rule, the deep jungles ~ they were not designed by the Almighty to be a trophy piece in some palatial tomb.
Stop cutting down trees ~ it is home to millions of small and big creatures
These trees are our homeland filter system ~ Their mere existence enriches us and stops us from choking on harmful gases !!
Stop the never-ending pollution from your factories, cars and those GOD-FORSAKEN ship tankers, that endlessly kill an entire generation of sea-life with their oil spills.
And finally, industrialization and commercialization naturally have advantages and disadvantages.
Have you ever visited the numerous kitchens in a cruise ship ? The foray of exotic meals served to the rich and famous is outrageous !! ‘THAT’ is your lesson 101 on the disadvantages of commercialization ~ pitifully.
We are frantically running a race ~ a race against time ~ a race against our own destinies ~ a race where we topple and defeat everything in our path, paying little heed to the insane reality of what we leave behind on the tracks. We humans, CAN maintain a balance ~ we CAN coexist in harmony with the rest of Allah’s creation. We may have been blessed with an added advantage of superior limbs, and superior thought process and superior compassion, but we rarely tend to make use of the later two.
We are transformed into fickle-minded mere mortals, who are enthralled by one defining news that concerns us for a certain span of time and no sooner does it get chugged away, along with yesterday’s newspaper and its news.
Dear Fellow Humans :-
STOP YOUR THOUGHTLESS SILENCE ON ALL ATROCITIES THAT YOU WITNESS, be it on humans or on animals or mother nature ~ SPEAK UP !!
Your NOT A TREE ~ YOU WERE GIVEN A VOICE FOR A REASON ~ NOW USE IT FOR THE RIGHT REASON.
A bold move ~ a long awaited move ~ and finally, a wise move.
What remains to be seen, is if this is set for the papers or will it be implemented.
However, a more pressing question of the hour is, will the brothers follow suit ?
The government of Kuwait has announced that it will not deal with 50 companies due to their role in illegal Israeli settlements in the occupied Palestinian territory in a move being welcomed by campaigners as a landmark success for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement. The blacklisted companies include some of the top corporate targets of the BDS movement, such as Volvo, Heidelberg Cement, Dexia, Pizzarotti, Alstom as well as Veolia. Veolia was recently excluded from a $750m contract, and “all future contracts,” by Kuwaiti authorities over its role in the illegal Jerusalem Light Rail project and other projects that serve illegal Israeli settlements. The blacklisted companies are expected to be excluded from contracts worth billions of dollars, especially if other Arab countries take similar steps. –
Salam Alaikum brothers and sisters.
I have been ‘missing in action’ on this blog and I apologize for that, but who in their rightful mind, could focus on a blog in the midst of the hideous massacre taking place in Gaza !!
This ramadhan was a blessing for us. We were blessed to be in good health, blessed to be together and blessed to be fasting. Sadly this Ramadhan also bought with it an awful reminder. A reminder of death, a reminder of mass scale destruction of the muslim ummah and a reminder of how we could, can and would perish if we did not remain steadfast in our worship and stand for our brothers and sisters, suffering in different parts of the world.
Also a reminder that, inspite of all the chaos and loss of life in Gaza, the world’s largest democratic government did not reach out to help them, send aid to them, or even condemn the oppressor. It was a reminder that NO HUMAN OR NATION can or will, help the muslim ummah except ofcourse, Allah Almighty, and hence we should not beseech anyone but Allah swt.
I will not repeat here, about the mass-scale destruction of homes, hospitals, schools, industries and even the power station ~ And I will not repeat the images of blown bodies, mutilated heads, pregnant mothers shot in the head, babies dying in the neo natal wards due to lack of medication and electricity. Those are stories that you already know.
But I will say that I am appalled by the total lack of empathy on the part of the United Nations. I will say, that it leaves me with despair to realize that this organization has failed miserably in saving precious lives, taking immediate and appropriate action in rescuing the old, the women and children ~ the civilians, who had nothing to do with Hamas. This organization has shown us that the reins lie in the hands of the world’s largest bully.
There are countries, who refuse to call it a genocide while there are countries, where thousands have come out on streets in protest. South American countries, South Africa, Ireland, Turkey, Afghanistan are some of the amazing countries which were vocal in their decisions to stand against the Zionists. While what is appalling is the silence by the Muslim world including Pakistan !!
This genocide is a reminder of how real the holocaust is for the muslims ! It is a reminder of which muslim state, stands by his brother and which muslim state has become so addicted to his lavish lifestyle that he dare not get out of his comfort zone. Politics and power is the price they are NOT ready to pay for.
Another aspect that became crystal clear is the sly role of the “media” ~ while American channels like ABC had even shown blown up Palestinian homes claiming them to be Israeli !! (which they apologized for later ~ when mass damage had already taken place ) ~ BBC in particular has played the most ‘shocking’ role !! Thousands of English people gathered in protest of BBC’s preposterous role in the entire coverage of the “war on Gaza”
There is a saying that only in trial, we realize who our friends and our foe are. Before the trial ~ all are our friends.
Man proposes his plans and he is arrogant for he believes his plans will succeed but Allah Almighty has his own plans and his plans are righteous and Just. He is the best judge. For all those little children who were drilled with bullet holes and shrapnel, brutally murdered mothers and callously shot grandparents. For all those lifeless babies who couldn’t make it to their first breath in this world ~ to all those fathers who had to silently carry the mutilated bodies and limbs of their precious sons and daughters ~ ALLAH ALMIGHTY is the best judge. So fret not ~ Your loss in this world will be highly rewarded in the next. Inshallah.
And for the silent muslim spectators ~ you have a lot to answer to Allah Almighty ~ so be prepared.
The only silver lining in the Gaza Massacre was that people all over the world ~ sat up, took notice and reacted in a positive way ~ the learned realized researched the archives of Palestinian history ~ the wise discovered how atrocious Israel’s plans were and scores of Jews, themselves protested against it ! One such remarkable name is Naomi Wolf. That itself, is a victory of the sorts. What with, having spent millions in keeping a tight grip on the media for decades ~ finally the social media has been able to deliver where the news media failed.
And as for Israel’s media and economics control: people are now waking up to crimes that are committed by Israel, thanks to the social medias, people like myself are boycotting all Israeli products. It’s slowly showing up in the stock market. The fact is, Israel can try to control people by feeding them wrong propagandas and lies, but a ‘woken up’ mind is more lethal than any of their tactics. It’s time to call a spade a spade!
Ever wondered why Prophet Muhammad (SAW) asked us to recite Surat Al-Kahf every Friday?
This surah has four stories in it, having some morals, lets see them and understand what they are saying to us:
1) The people of the cave
It’s the story of young men who lived in a disbelieving town, so they decided to migrate for the sake of Allah and run away. Allah rewards them with mercy in the cave and protection from the sun – they woke up and found the entire village believers.
Moral: trial of faith
2) The owner of two gardens
A story of a man whom Allah blessed with two beautiful gardens, but the man forgot to thank the one who blessed him with everything and he even dared to doubt Allah regarding the afterlife. So his garden was destroyed – he regretted ,but was too late and his regret did not bene?t him.
Moral: trial of wealth
3) Musa(as) and Khidr(as)
When musa(as) was asked-“who’s the most knowledgeable of the people of earth?”” Musa(as) said: me…,but Allah revealed to him that there’s someone who knows more than him. Musa(as) traveled to the man and learned how the divine wisdom can sometimes be hidden in matters which we perceive as bad.
Moral: trial of knowledge
It’s a story of the great king that was given knowledge and power and was going around the world,helping people and spreading all that’s good. He was able to overcome the problem of Yajooj-Majooj and build a massive dam with the help of people whom he could not even understand.
Moral: trial of power
In the middle of the surah Allah mentions iblees as the one who stirs these trials:
Behold! we said to the angels “bow down to adam”: they bowed down except iblis. he was one of the jinns, and he broke the command of his lord. will ye then take him and his progeny as protectors rather than me? and they are enemies to you! evil would be the exchange for the wrongdoers!
Now let us see what’s the relationship between surat al-kahf and the dajjal (anti-christ)?
Dajjal will appear before day of judgement with the 4 trials:
A) He’ll ask people to worship him and not Allah: trial of faith.
B) He’ll be given powers to start/stop rain and tempt people with his wealth: trial of with his wealth.
C) He’ll trial people with the “knowledge” and news he gives them: trial of knowledge.
D) He’ll control huge parts of the earth: trial of power.
How to survive these trials? The answers are in Surat Al-Kahf:
Survival kit 1: Good companionship
“and keep thy soul content with those who call on their lord morning and evening, seeking his face; and let not thine eyes pass beyond them, seeking the pomp and glitter of this life; no obey any whose heart we have permitted to neglect the remembrance of us, one who follows his own desires, whose case has gone beyond all bounds.” (Surat al-kahf, verse 28)
Survival kit 2: Knowing the truth of this world
“set forth to them the similitude of the life of this world: it is like the rain which we send down from the skies: the earth’s vegetation absorbs it, but soon it becomes dry stubble, which the winds do scatter: it is (only) Allah who prevails over all things” (Surat al-kahf, verse 45)
Survival kit 3: Humbleness.
[Moses] said, “You will find me, if Allah wills, patient, and I will not disobey you in [any] order.” (Surat al-kahf, verse 69)
Survival kit 4: Sincerity.
“say: “i am but a man like yourselves, (but) the inspiration has come to me, that your Allah is one Allah whoever expects to meet his lord, let him work righteousness, and, in the worship of his lord, admit no one as partner.” (Surat al- kahf, verse 110)
Survival kit 5: Calling to Allah.
“and recite (and teach) what has been revealed to thee of the book of thy lord: none can change his words, and none wilt thou ? and as a refuge other than him.” (surat al-kahf, verse 27)
Survival kit 6: Remembering the Hereafter.
“ one day we shall remove the mountains, and thou wilt see the earth as a level stretch, and we shall gather them, all together, nor shall we leave out any one of them. and they will be marshalled before thy lord in ranks, (with the announcement), “now have ye come to us (bare) as we created you ?rst: aye, ye thought we shall not ful?l the appointment made to you to meet (us)!”: and the book (of deeds) will be placed (before you); and thou wilt see the sinful in great terror because of what is (recorded) therein; they will say, “ah! woe to us! what a book is this! it leaves out nothing small or great,but takes account thereof !” they will ?nd all that they did, placed before them: and not one will thy lord treat with injustice.” (surat al-kahf, verses 47-49)
Over the years, this policy has been proven pretty accurate ~ Distract the common man with some kind of strange explosion !
Today is the 11th day into the disappearance of Malyasian Airlines flight MH 370. A lot of theories and speculations are floating on all news channels and the internet is flooded with vague pictures.
Everyone seems to paranoid ! Especially the US !!
Every tiny nook and cranny of explanation and possibilities has been worked on ~ all including “alien abduction” ~ all but that of a mighty power reigning thru heaven on this entire universe.
In my own tiny brain frame, I was wondering, why are we humans so week in heart and soul ? I wouldn’t want to jump on the band wagon and start coming up with theories too (we have too many people busy doing exactly that already ) But I was just wondering, why do we have so little faith in the Creator ?
We are so rattled by explanations and logic ~ Almost all the Prophets were granted some form of Miracles to gather followership ~ but isn’t it strange that today, if Dajjal came forth and started throwing his magical “miracles” ~ would we really try to use logic (as we should) or would we be so mersmerised by his charming tricks that we would blindly obey him (astaghfirullah) ? Just a thought !
One cannot even imagine just how devastated the relatives, near and dear ones of the passengers, must feel. They need a closure and at the moment, that is one thing that no -one can provide for them.
May Allah swt bless them with patience and strength to bear whatever the outcome of this episode, may be. Ameen.
This news is reported from :- PressTV.
The United States and Israel have signed an agreement under which $429 million of American taxpayers’ money “will be transferred immediately to Israel” to fund its Iron Dome missile system.
” The pentagon says the agreement was signed last week in a bid to “continue support of the production of the Iron Dome weapon system” and provide opportunities for US industry to “receive meaningful co-production opportunities for Iron Dome components.”
On March 4, the US House of Representatives also passed a bill which named Israel a “major strategic partner” of the US and called for the expansion of Washington’s military ties with Tel Aviv.
The legislation, which was passed by a 410 to 1 vote, calls for expanding the delivery of US arms and military technologies to Israel and commits US Congress to increase funding for Israel’s Iron Dome missile system.
Last week, some reports said funding for Israel’s missile systems has been cut in US President Barack Obama’s budget for fiscal year 2015.
However, the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), which is the most powerful pro-Israel lobby group in the US, told Israeli press that the funding remained intact and that the lobby group will work with Congress to ensure the funding levels remain as high as previous years’.
AIPAC also said that it is not the US President but Congress that decides on the funding levels.
Israel already receives billions of dollars from the US each year. Under an existing 10-year aid agreement between Washington and Tel Aviv signed in 2007, $30 billion of American taxpayers’ money is flowing to Israel.
The US annual military aid to Israel has been elevated from $2.4 billion to $3.1 billion through 2017 under the existing agreement.
Meanwhile, US and Israeli officials have discussed a surge in US military aid to Israel in a new aid package that would extend through 2027.”
And here are just some of the thoughts that followed this news :-
- For America it would be cheaper to move Israel to the US..Most Jews live already there.And Tel Aviv is already ruling the Congress.
- That is the “American” congress. Cutting of 1,5 million families of unemployed americans from unemployment insurance payments and food stamps but having no problem of giving Israel another $429 million on top of the billions send yearly in “development-aide” to Israel…
- Israel is a bottomless pit. No matter how much money, weapons, ill-gotten donations is thrown in this bottomless pit Israel will never feel secure or legitimate. Any and every other country’s progress in the region will throw it into a hysterical existential fit. A perennial parasite for which nothing is enough.
- One might ask:”how will the government pay for this money package?” Well slashing food stamps, denying unemployment benifits to layed off workers. This is treason! Where is the outrage from the democrats? Why can’t we get funding for affordable housing?
- This is why middle easterners hate us!
- US. With that kind of congress (voted only one against?) who needs enemy.
- American economy is all ready destroyed,just watch and see the collapse.Lawmakers in US ignored citizens needs. Problem with infrastructure, problem with healthcare, problem with deficit, problem with railroads, problem with electrical grid, problem with crimes and killings etc. All this will need money nowww, but money is not there, because supporting apartheid, wars, dictators, war lords now they are third world country . US wealthy citizens are already pulling money out of US or buying gold and in some cases getting out with families. Europe and rest of the world should consider, who will replace US in world stage.
- What about giving a few dollars to their own people.
- When are you, the American people, gonna put a stop to this absurdity?
- Our President, Military, Senate and the rest of government is working for Israeli Jews and not for Americans. They are all on the payroll of Israel. And our people are Zombies and under the control of the Trashy tv shows produced by the Jews. We eat junk, we watch junk and we are ruled by bunch of junk politicians/ “Intelligent” service and Military.
- What??? Our People are starving, homeless, dumbed down to zero, infrastructure in tatters, and we’re waging wars all over the world, and now? We Give our AMERICAN TAXPAYER MONEY to a bunch of rabid vampire Blood sucking Zionist JEWS!! WE ARE TRULY DONE!!! Our Congress is no longer ours, they are ALL brought and paid for by the vile scum of the AIPAC Jews!!!
- We have to stop voting for these scumbag Democrats and Republicans…Congress is nothing but a Zionist controlled bordello
- Zionist controls the entire US govt. i strongly believes Israel in the occupied territory is just an extended entity of the US stolen lands.
- Unbelievable: Israel wrecks peace talks, continue stealing land and killing innocent Palestinians and america continues to reward them. Stealing from the American public, the biggest criminals on earth???
- More welfare for the chosen people lol more welfare for the people that think they are special, and are smarter, wiser and better at business then all others. Why would the chosen people, the smartest people, ever have to stoop to taking money from others if they are so great?
- How useless is this iron dome, when thousands of missiles are raining down on the little miserable entity, Israel. They think they are above god these rabid ziodogs!
- and more !!!
Lives were lost ~ homes were lost ~ heritage was lost ~ and an identity lost ~ over 6 decades ago, a lot was at stake to embark on a new identity !! An identity that belonged to being Muslims ! And identity to uphold the values of Islam and an ideal to strengthen the bonds of brotherhood.
Fast-forward to 2014 ~ The country has an identity crisis. Regardless of any admission or denial ~ one can easily notice just how confused the generation is ! How in dismay the Government is ! And how wasted the sacrifices of the earlier generations were !! I fail to understand what was achieved ???
To begin with, inspite of over six decades, every state has a bias over the adjoining one such as discriminating them by calling them Muhajireen etc.
The state of public schools, hospitals, roads, transport systems, and municipality is in shambles !! The rich live in a beautiful and hygienic bubble of mineral water ~ while the undernourished majority, queue inside public hospitals for hours while, “DOC SAAB” finishes his “chai break”.
What has become of the Muslim ideology of respecting parents and elders ~ then why do we even have an Edi home ?? Why are muslim women battered and bruised and left for the worldly vultures to devour ? Why and how are married muslim women succumbing to prostitution ?
What little have they achieved when every success is measured in terms of being “accepted” “associated” or “praised” from an Indian counterpart. Every morning show makes it a point mock some aspect of “Indianness” while any interview, has a high TRP if the interviewee has made an appearance in India !! What hypocrisy !!
Democracy was and is, not a part of Islamic shariah, then how does a country boast itself with being democratic AND Islamic ??? Another hypocrisy !!!
While the “ministers” host lavish palatial homes in the Arab cities, the common man back home, is cheated out of his own hard earned property rights !
Perhaps that also adds to one of the reasons, why Pakistani’s are the largest immigrants to Canada, USA and England.
Western clothed women are respected and admired while ladies clad in “burqas” and “niqaabs” are harassed and looked down-upon !
A meal at a fast food chain or a chai or coffee over at ” xyz” is considered being trendy regardless of the need or desire !!
Indian actors and actresses are idolized instead of the Khulfae Rashideen !! Again, who’s that ? you ask !!
Valentines Day, New Year, Christmas, Mothers day, fathers day and the likes are largely celebrated on almost every Pakistani channel !!
No muslim country is as extravagant as this society in wastage and pompous show in a marriage ceremony. The Prophet sallalahu alai hi wa salam said ““The most blessed nikah is the one with the least expenses.” [Bayhaqi] and yet, lavish ritualistic processions are followed to keep up with the society-maintained standards. Customs which are bidaat are prevalent and those who wish to guide the corrupt, are labeled as being Ahlas-sunnah, Wahabi, etc !!
One of the major fitnah is in the strongly established fashion industry which has been promoting shorter and more revealing clothes !! The craze to “stay hip” and “happening” is just overwhelming !! Hasad and hiras go hand in hand ~ we tend to forget that in our graves, we will be solely responsible for our deeds and misdeeds. No community, friend, clan etc, are going to come and defend us there.
Surely a muslim name does not warrant being muslim. Have they not any fear or shame of how they will face Allah swt in the Akhirah ? Do they not worry of how they are deceiving and misguiding an entire generation ? How do they deal with their conscience in the lust for greed and fame ?? Or even worse, have they already buried and read “Fateha” over their long dead conscience ??
Leading the way to the fire !! I wonder, what the founding fathers would have to say ???
Indeed, fame, power, money and the glitz of the glamour industry is far too over powering for these weak and unfortunate souls.
These dictators of the fashion world are promoting Hinduism !!
Sadly and certainly they have drifted far, very far from Islam.
These photos are just a glimpse of just how lost this lot is 😦
Anything but a Muslim country ~ it is NOT !!
The link as well as the pictures below are graphic in nature ~ kindly refrain from watching if you are faint at heart !! I am hence I writing this post.
If there is one thing I cannot understand, it is the ill-treatment of animals. When are we, as human beings, ever going to learn to co-exist with the world around us ??? Why do we consider ourselves to be so “on-top-of-the-chain” that we tend to think that everything but us, cease to exist !! Havent we done enough damage to the environment that we still follow irrational and barbaric tradtions.
Have we become so numb headed and moronic that we still cant get it that, God or No huge diety/patron can ask you to “torture an animal” so brutally and then just slaughter it !!
Hoardes of these men and women are so brain washed and deceived by Satan, believing in this demonic and hideous tradition.
Every year, lives are lost to this ritual yet they love to play and feel the thrill in abusing and tormenting these animals. What purpose can it possibly serve ? Where is the wisdom in any of this ?? Can we be so blinded by traditions and cultures, that such torture can be justified ??
Surely, I would love for one of these macho men to relive their lives, as that of a bull, even if its just for that one last day of his/its life. Wouldnt be so macho, after all, now would he ??
While a child, we were generally taught, that raising our voice to certain injustices was not a very lady-like behaviour. Best to be silent than find yourself in an embarrassing situation. Parents preach one thing, but often times, practise another. I still remember, how mother would never have an ounce of fear, if confronted with an injust situation. She would never flinch. She would make her point clear. She would stand up for what she believed was right. Many years later, to a certain degree, I too, dont flinch, from a challenge confronting me. I too, believe in standing upright for justice.
One subject, very close to my heart are Animals. I have this huge and deep sense of love and respect for them. While I may not be as passionate about reptiles, none the less, I believe, Allah swt blessed this world with every insect, bird and animal to perform his role in nature. No matter, how small or huge, an animal fears us humans the most. We are the REAL predators. We humans, are the real beasts !! We have regally taken our positions right on top of the ecosystem yet we tend to abuse everything and everyone in our path.
We are careless, we are reckless, we are selfish, we are unresentful and we are causing the world to decay.
WE HUMANS ARE TOTALLY DISGUSTING ~ WE ONLY TAKE AND TAKE AND TAKE SOME MORE FROM NATURE AND in return we give back our garbage !!! and most of us would dismiss our participation in this by saying that we dont throw anything in the ocean. We dispose off our trash in the bin. Many wont see that the trash they throw in the bins indiscriminately will eventually find its way in the oceans because we do not really have the real consciousness of the impact of trash. Change must begin at home. Find out what happens to the trash ~ where is it disposed ~ it IS OUR DUTY !!!! Or there maybe islands flooded with poor helpless little dead baby birds !!! WAKE UP !!!!!!!
This is an excellent video but it really breaks my heart to see what is happening because Human beings are so totally oblivious of their negative contribution to the ecosystem. Kindly click the below link to view the video.
Please take a few minutes to view see this film, I am sure, you may wake up with wet eyes but a resolution to be more responsible with your junk.
I came across is thought provoking article and wished to share it with you. If any of you have been watching or have watched Aamir Khan’s TV programme, “Satyame vijayte”, you could get a deeper understanding of where we stand in India, as far as “ENVIRONMENT which includes Water is concerned. It is shameful that we are so ignorant in this age and time to conserve water, stop it from being polluted and being responsible in its wastage.
Perhaps like many other things, even in this case, India will only wake up when its all-too-late !
Religion is a very touchy subject in India and far too many riots have taken place all in the name of religion. Heck, we even had a full fledge partition of India ~ all for “RELIGION” !!!!! But inspite of all this, I personally still feel, “educated people” must come forward to make the changes in order to protect the environment. We have rotted mother earth in hundreds of different ways ~ all under a huge blanket of excuses like ” traditions, parampara and culture” ~ Without hurting anyones sensitivities, people have to wake up and change habits, lest they find themselves rotting in the same pile, in a not-too-distant future.

Idol immersion – not ideal at all!
India is a multi-cultural country of myriad festivals. We participate in the celebrations of various deities round the year and it seems quite impossible to remain aloof from the accompanied pomp and show while paying homage to the gods.
Some of these festivals involve ‘idol immersion’ in water as the celebrations finale. Beautifully carved and decorated idols are drowned into water bodies like rivers, ponds and lakes with prayers for success, happiness and peace. Two major festivals in India that involve idol immersion are – ‘Ganesh Chaturthi’, dedicated to Lord Ganesha and ‘Durga Puja’, dedicated to Goddess Durga.
However, amidst the celebrations, people tend to forget the ill-effects of the practice. The most serious impact of idol immersion is on the environment. It disturbs the ecological balance by polluting water and adversely affecting the flora and fauna.
The idols of deities are made of non-biodegradable materials such as plastic, cement and plaster of paris and are painted with toxic dyes that contain harmful and toxic chemicals.
When they come in contact with water, it becomes poison. This results in contamination and death of marine life.
The reason behind this is those materials that do not dissolve easily in water, thereby reducing the oxygen level and increasing the level of acidity in water.
If consumed, it can even cost us our precious lives, as even a gulp of the chemicals can prove to be fatal.

Thankfully there are ways through which we can carry out the ‘idol immersion’ practice without harming the environment. Some unique and creative methods can be adopted to make ‘eco-friendly idols’. We should follow the ancient tradition of constructing the statues from natural clay and paint it with flowers based dyes.
Also, the government should take stringent measures during the procedure of immersing idols. Authorities should make sure that devotees remove all clothes and heavy-metal ornaments from idols before bidding farewell to the deities. There should be some strict guidelines and norms which must be followed prior to idol immersion across the country.
Surveys should be conducted at various immersion-sites to check pre-immersion, during-immersion and post-immersion water purity results.
There should be a ban on the immersion of plastic-made icons into lakes, rivers and the sea. Recycling of eco-friendly statues and creative, judicious and wise use of natural products in creating statues can be of great help in maintaining the ecological balance.
We as devotees should understand that if we do not respect nature then we can never respect God.
