Peaceful Buddhist monks?

The image of Buddhist monks is of peaceful non aggressive individual. We are more accustomed to hearing of Tibetan Buddhist monk burning themselves to death protesting at Chinese rule. The Buddhists of Sri Lanka are nothing like this.

Buddhist monks led a crowd of 2,000 trying to storm a mosque in Dambulla, Sri Lanka and demanded its demolition.

The night before the mosque was fire-bombed.

In September 2011, a monk led a crowd to demolish a Muslim shrine in Anuradhapura, not far from Dambulla.

A group of Buddhist monks led a crowd that demolished a several hundred years old Muslim shrine in Anuradhapura. Senior police officers were present during the incident and did not do anything to stop the destruction of the shrine.

Sri Lankan Defence Secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa said of the destruction "no-one had consented to this act and that people should not take the law into their own hands."

What was he going to do about it?

His advice was for the issue to be discussed by Muslim and Buddhist leaders. In other words, absolutely nothing.

In January 2012 Sri Lanka 'expelled 161 foreign Muslim preachers' for flouting visa regulations. "A tourist visa is to have a holiday or visit friends and family, and not to preach Islam." said Sri Lanka's immigration head Chulananda Perera.

Their crime was to preach to Muslims at Muslim places of worship.

Governor of Punjab murdered by own bodyguard

The Governor of Pakistan's Punjab province was shot down by one of his bodyguards yesterday.

The bodyguard was angered by the Governors opposition to the blasphemy laws. But, he may also have been assassinated for political reasons.

You may not have liked the late governor for other reasons, but to murder him, for that or over the blasphemy laws is unacceptable, in Islam.

He only expressed his views about the blasphemy law - a much abused law.

More than 500 scholars from the moderate Barelvi Sunni sect have warned that anyone who expresses grief over the assassination could suffer the same fate.

"More than 500 scholars of the Jamaat-e-Ahl-e-Sunnat have advised Muslims not to offer the funeral prayers of Governor Punjab Salman Taseer nor try to lead the prayers"

"Also, there should be no expression of grief or sympathy on the death of the governor, as those who support blasphemy of the Prophet are themselves indulging in blasphemy."

He did not blaspheme.
He sought justice for a woman.
That is no crime.

Taking the law into your own hands is a crime.
It is a crime in Islam. "Obey the law of the land" is a Muslims duty.

Another illiterate molvi recently said that the state could not pardon the woman accused of blasphemy. Why not? Who is in charge?

The Sahaba and family of the Prophet were prepared to stand back and make sacrifices to keep the unity and peace of the Ummah.

The people who support this murder and will not allow anyone to attend the funeral or show any sympathy are spreading "fitna" throughout the country. The Quran is full of warnings to these imbeciles.

There is a hadith about 2 women in which the Prophet tell us who will go to Heaven and Hell.

The person without manners i.e. intolerant will go to HELL irrespective of any amount of alleged devotion.

The person with manners i.e. tolerant will go to Heaven even though he only did the minimum required.

The goal of a Muslim is to achieve manners and be tolerant towards others.

The group of scholars also noted the "courage" of the killer and that his action has made Muslims around the world proud.

Disgusted would be more appropriate.

Sarah Palin on Ground Zero mosque

The Republican Sarah Palin, self-described rottweiler with lipstick, message to New Yorkers is:


“Peaceful New Yorkers, pls refute the Ground Zero mosque plan"

“Peace-seeking Muslims, pls understand, Ground Zero mosque is UNNECESSARY provocation"

Calling it the "Ground Zero Mosque" is misleading and UNNECESSARILY inflamatory.

The mosque is NOT being built at Ground Zero.

It is to be built 2 blocks away - replacing an uninteresting beat up building formerly housing a Burlington Coat factory store. Not exactly a noticeable landmark.

Standing at Ground Zero, you would never be aware of it.

The issue is "too raw" (to build a mosque) only if you fail to see the distinction between a Muslim and a terrorist.

Lastly, let us not forget that Muslim-Americans were killed in the September 11th attacks.

As a sensible person adds:

"So Palin and the Tea Party nuts would be offended by a Christian church near the site of the Oklahoma City federal building bombing? The perpetrators of that crime claimed to be Christians."

The "Christian" Oklahoma bombers murdered 168 people, including 19 children under the age of 6 and injured more than 680 people in 1995.

Another sensible person wants to know:

Where would she like the mosque? If two blocks is too close for her , would three blocks be acceptable? Maybe four blocks? A half a mile, or two miles? What is the acceptable, respectable distance that Muslims should keep from Ground Zero? Should they keep that distance from other national monuments, as well? What other concessions should "peaceful Muslims" do to make Sarah Palin happy?

Yet,another sensible person wants to know:

Can you provide coordinates for your zone of insensitivity? Future plans may be subject to less controversy if we can establish the correct parameters now.

Fear, Hatred, Distortion, Distraction and Division will achieve nothing.

Palin supporters have the view that it "shameless for any muslim to want to worshiip on the graves of the people ... killed in the name of their religion" and "sing the praises of the murderers."

How hard is it, for a sensible person, to grasp that fact that the dead are NOT buried at Ground Zero and the mosque is not being built at Ground zero.

Guns hurt people every single day but I don't see republicans banning guns to respect those whose wounds are still fresh.

Should we also ban churches from being anywhere near native American burial grounds. They were, after all, slaughtered by Christians.

If you want to know how twisted SOME Americans (including the establishment) are towards Muslims read this Guardian article

Two Innocent brothers killed In Sialkot

In Sialkot 2 brothers, one 16 the other 18, were murdered by a mob in front of a policeman.




The victims mother said:

"I will never forgive them.
I want perpetrators to suffer the same treatment – only then will I have peace.
The spectators deserve the same."

The police, the perpetrators and the spectators should be "skinned alive".

There is nothing else that these bas***ds understand.



It is alleged taht robbers, fired gunshots, killed a man and wounded others.
The brothers arrived at the scene a few minutes later. The brother of the man killed, said that his brother was involved in a cricket match dispute earlier with these two, so they must part of the robber gang. The brother declared to all – that these two are the robbers. Then all hell broke loose.
The Police take 45 minutes to arrive, in the meantime all the town people viciously beat up the two boys near to death. The boys were then hung up outside the police station and beaten with sticks.
“Look we know these boys, they are not robbers”
Oops, wrong word because they get beaten up too.
This is not a village incident. It happened in a town, in this day and age.
What is more the police bast**rd in charge, made his 20-25 men encircle the scene so that no one could come to the boys aid.
A reporter who filed this barbarity could not sleep for three days.
The media reports glorified the fact that 2 robbers were caught and killed.
You cannot just kill people without a trial.
There could a hundred reasons to be wrong.
The people of Sialkot will testify that the two victims belonged to a very respectable family.
When the family receive the bodies of their two sons, in such a state , how do they feels. They only had 2 sons and a daughter. The police have labelled their son’s robbers. After 5 days no police report of the incident has been filed yet.



ooops that is not the whole or true story.
The boys were involved in a cricket dispute.
They were invited to come and make up.
What happened to them was pre-planned.
The story about the robbers was just concocted to blame them.

Trust Yusuf Raza Gilani ?

Fake Medical camp set up for Prime Minister of Pakistan of Pakistan Yusuf Raza Gilani.

He barely looked at the victim when giving them 5,000 rupees cheques.
On his departure all signs of the camp dis-appeared.



"Whatever you give, we will give an account of every single penny”
- PM Gilani.

Would you trust this man to "account for every single penny" given to him or his government?

Only a fool or madman would make such a promise.

The rich, powerful and politicians are not accountable to anyone.
Not even for the distribution of hard earned charity money.

CNN sacks veteran editor over remark

CNN has sacked a veteran Middle East editor after she wrote on Twitter that she "respected" the late Grand Ayatollah Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah.

Ms Octavia Nasr wrote: "Sad to hear of the passing of Sayyed Mohammad Hussein Fadlallah... One of Hezbollah's giants I respect a lot."

That remark ended the two decades career of CNN's senior editor of Middle East affairs because her credibility had been "compromised".

In Lebanon and in the Shia community worldwide Grand Ayatollah Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah was a spiritual giant whose teachings and writings placed him at the highest level possible.

The Ayatollah wrote more than 40 books and treatises. His rich legacy also includes charitable institutions and theological schools through which he will be long remembered.

He took a strong stand on many women's issues, and set up a number of women's centres.

Some of the fatwas (religious edicts) he issued were against female circumcision and "honour" killings, and he ruled that women had the right to hit back if beaten by their husbands. He also opined that abortion could be permitted in cases where a woman's health was at risk.

Grand Ayatollah Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah openly spoke against Israeli occupation and American foreign policy in the region ie American presence in Lebanon.

As such, he is said to have inspired Hezbollah.

No one is permitted to respect such a man, in the West.

If you do, then the response is immediate.

A perfect example of "complete freedom of speech".
