Hindu Statement

Its not a Religious Statement, Its a Cultural Statement!!!

Gujarat, Karnataka still BJP bastion

Awww. Now this is bad. The media has done everything to tarnish the image of the party and still they are in the lead?? For example they completly forgot about the godhra train incident and focussed just on the riots that followed in Gujarat. No Gain.

They gave prime time spots to some publicity seeking miscreants who roughed up girls and blamed it on the lack of action of Karnataka government, convinently forgetting that this is the plight of women everywhere in India.No Gain.

The bosses of many media houses will not be happy for sure.

The exclusive nationwide survey done by CNN-IBN and CSDS throws up interesting results in the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) strongholds of Gujarat and Karnataka as well as the monopoly of Congress-Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) on power in Maharashtra.

Nobel Laureates – Education will help, bombing schools will not….

Not trying to degrade any community but the truth is bitter. Below is the list of the Nobel Prizes from the two communities and the difference is stark.  If only the Islamic terrorists stop killing innocent people and themselves  for the virgins in heaven and start going to school, there would be a lot of world peace and there will be an increase in their standard of living.

I hope no “Intellectuals” say that the noble prize is a drama by the “US-Israel-Hindu terrorist” nexus to malign the muslim community.

The Global Islamic population is approximately 1,200,000,000  or 20% of the world’s population. They have received the following Nobel Prizes worldwide:

GOD LIVES UNDER THE BED

This has got nothing to do with anything else thats in this blog, I got it as a forward and its such a good read that I had to put it up here.

I envy Kevin. My brother Kevin thinks God lives under his bed. At least that’s what I heard him say one night.
He was praying out loud in his dark bedroom, and I stopped to listen, ‘Are you there, God?’ he said. ‘Where are you? Oh, I see. Under the bed…’
I giggled softly and tiptoed off to my own room. Kevin’s unique perspectives are often a source of amusement. But that night something else lingered long after the humor. I realized for the first time the very different world Kevin lives in.
He was born 30 years ago, mentally disabled as a result of difficulties during labor. Apart from his size (he’s 6-foot-2), there are few ways in which he is an adult. He reasons and communicates with the capabilities of a 7-year-old, and he always will. He will probably always believe that God lives under his bed, that Santa Claus is the one who fills the space under our tree every Christmas and that airplanes stay up in the sky because angels carry them.
I remember wondering if Kevin realizes he is different. Is he ever dissatisfied with his monotonous life?
Up before dawn each day, off to work at a workshop for the disabled, home to walk our cocker spaniel, return to eat his favorite macaroni-and-cheese for dinner, and later to bed.  The only variation in the entire scheme is laundry, when he hovers excitedly over the washing machine like a mother with her newborn child.He does not seem dissatisfied.
He lopes out to the bus every morning at 7:05, eager for a day of simple work.He wrings his hands excitedly while the water boils on the stove before dinner, and he stays up late twice a week to gather our dirty laundry for his next day’s laundry chores.
And Saturdays-oh, the bliss of Saturdays! That’s the day my Dad takes Kevin to the airport to have a soft drink, watch the planes land, and speculate loudly on the destination of each passenger inside. ‘That one’s goin’ to Chi-car-go! ‘ Kevin shouts as he claps his hands.His anticipation is so great he can hardly sleep on Friday nights.
And so goes his world of daily rituals and weekend field trips.

He doesn’t know what it means to be discontent.His life is simple.He will never know the entanglements of wealth of power, and he does not care what brand of clothing he wears or what kind of food he eats. His needs have always been met, and he never worries that one day they may not be.His hands are diligent. Kevin is never so happy as when he is working. When he unloads the dishwasher or vacuums the carpet, his heart is completely in it.He does not shrink from a job when it is begun, and he does not leave a job until it is finished. But when his tasks are done, Kevin knows how to relax.He is not obsessed with his work or the work of others His heart is pure.
He still believes everyone tells the truth, promises must be kept, and when you are wrong, you apologize instead of argue.
Free from pride and unconcerned with appearances, Kevin is not afraid to cry when he is hurt, angry or sorry. He is always transparent, always sincere. And he trusts God.
Not confined by intellectual reasoning, when he comes to Christ, he comes as a child. Kevin seems to know God – to really be friends with Him in a way that is difficult for an ‘educated’ person to grasp. God seems like his closest companion.
In my moments of doubt and frustrations with my Christianity I envy the security Kevin has in his simple faith. It is then that I am most willing to admit that he has some divine knowledge that rises above my mortal questions
It is then I realize that perhaps he is not the one with the handicap . I am. My obligations, my fear, my pride, my circumstances – they all become disabilities when I do not trust them to God’s care
Who knows if Kevin comprehends things I can never learn? After all, he has spent his whole life in that kind of innocence, praying after dark and soaking up the goodness and love of God.
And one day, when the mysteries of heaven are opened, and we are all amazed at how close God really is to our hearts, I’ll realize that God heard the simple prayers of a boy who believed that God lived under his bed.
Kevin won’t be surprised at all!

Advani hints at local link to 26/11

I guess we will have to agree to that.  It is really not possible to do such an elaborate exercise without local support.  I don’t understand why the government should be hiding facts (or maybe I do understand????). We need to understand that all Indians are not patriotic and there are scrupulous elements in all walks  of life and communities who will be willing to help these terrorists to carry on the carnage. There have been such support in the past and there will be in the future, closing a blind eye towards it is not going to solve the problem.

Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi’s statement on local support in the Mumbai terror attacks on Tuesday found support in senior BJP leader L K Advani.

Speaking in the Lok Sabha, the Leader of the Opposition and the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate questioned the Mumbai police chief ruling out ‘local links’ in Mumbai terror attacks.

“It is clear that the planning happened for a year and they visited the places they attacked on November 26. It is not possible that there are no local links in 26/11,” said said L K Advani, Leader of Opposition.

“It is a well-planned conspiracy. I was also surprised to hear the Mumbai police chief’s comment that all 26/11 terrorists are accounted for, that they are either dead or in custody. And there is no local link. How can they give that certificate?’ added Advani.

The Congress had condemned the remarks as anti-national and one that toed Pakistan’s line.

Hand over Kasab to us: Pak Minister tells India

Sure Mr.Qureshi, we will hand him over, but please make sure that he is given VIP treatment, after all he should be a hero for pakistan. And while you are at it do send some more talibanised youths from pakistan to India to kill many more people. After they have done their job of killing the kafirs we will send them back to pakistan. Does that sound like a good plan to you?

Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi has once again reiterated Islambad’s position that the lone terrorist captured alive during the Mumbai terror attacks, Mohammad Ajmal Amir Kasab, should be handed over to them.

In an interview to BBC Urdu, Qureshi said, “If Kasab is Pakistani citizen, India should not have problems in handing him over.”

Qureshi said that if Kasab has admitted to his role in the Mumbai terror attacks then he should be tried in Pakistan.

MNS disrupts screening of SRK-starrer “Billu” because it insults the works of Prophet Mohammad.

From the name “Billu Barber”, barber is gone. From the movie, a song is gone. From this country sanity is gone.

Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) disrupts screening of Shah Rukh Khan-starrer ‘Billu’ in Mumbai on Tuesday (February 17) for the reason that one of the songs ‘Marjaani’ in the film insults the works of Prophet Mohammad.

Aslam Bhai Khot, Secretary of the MNS speaking on the allegedly controversial lines of the song ‘Marjaani’ said, “The words in the song ‘Marjaani’ are derogatory. We have complaints from the Muslim community. We talked with the filmmakers and producers to delete the song but our efforts went in vain. We have gathered here to register our silent protest.”

Another activist of the MNS reacted, “The words in the song hurt the sentiments of the people. We have a great respect for Shah Rukh Khan. We wish he recovers quickly after his surgery. He is no more a great person now for us since the song hurts great people like Pigambar and Hazul.”

Meanwhile, the leading actor of the film Irrfan Khan speaking on the issue said, “The meaning of the song is cleared by Shah Rukh and Gulzar. The activists are creating a controversy only to drag the attention of the public.” MNS activists have lodged an First Information Report (FIR) against producer Shah Rukh Khan, lyricist Gulzar and actor Irrfan Khan saying the line from the song insults the works of Prophet Mohammad, the messenger of God.

Sena workers also staged protests and stopped screening of the movie. They protested this in signature style. Their objection is to the words ‘rab ke hazoor mein kasmein bhi khaali li, duniya ki oni boni kasmein nibhadi’ which they believe, insult the works of Prophet Mohammed.

The film produced by Red Chillies Productions, partly owned by Shahrukh Khan had to be renamed ‘Billu’ from ‘Billu Barber’ after some barber associations objected to use of the word “barber” in the title. ‘Billu’, a tale of friendship between a poor barber and his superstar friend, opened to a mixed response from the audiences today. Eros Pictures said it has distributed the film in over 1,000 screens worldwide.

Pakistan to impose Islamic law in SWAT

Oh yeah we are very close to having the taliban staring into our eyes, and am very sure that some politicians will have a reception committee to recieve them at the border.

The Pakistan government agreed on Monday to impose Islamic law and suspend a military offensive across the northwest Pakistan. These concessions are believed to be aimed at pacifying a spreading Taliban insurgency in the area. The announcement came after talks with local Islamists, including one closely linked to the Taliban. The move will likely concern the United States, which has warned Pakistan that such peace agreements allow Al-Qaida and Taliban militants operating near the Afghan border time to rearm and regroup. Meanwhile, in rare press conference, General Pervez Musharraf hit out at “those who said there is a tacit understanding between the Pakistan army and the Taliban”. He also said that weakening the ISI and the army will weaken the war against the Taliban. Newspapers in Pakistan have commented the move to enforce Islamic Law in the areas under Taliban influence. In an article, The News has said, “The horrendous situation in a region where people have suffered tremendous brutality, where girls have been driven out of schools and where people have been beheaded in public for defying the militants is one that no elected government can stand by and calmly endure.” The Pakistan Observer has said, “It is regrettable that some people adopted violent means for realization of the highly noble objective of enforcing Islamic justice system. Anyhow, the new arrangement can lead to durable peace in the troubled region.”

`All means will be used to end terror coming from Pakistan,’ says Pranab

External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee on Thursday said that India would use all means at its disposal to end terror coming from Pakistan. But coming from a party that is steeped in favoritism, I am assuming that these were the ideas going on in his mind (and the minds of the congress think tank) when the minister made his statement.

  1. Since the terrorists are creating the problem because of Kashmir and Gujarat, we are planning to part with these two states and give them to Pakistan as a mark of friendship.
  2. Also since Himachal is bordering with J&K, we might as well give HP to them, that way they will be very sure that we mean peace.
  3. We will change our constitution to incorporate taliban style laws in India. This way the terrorists will not be offended and there will not be any more blood shed.
  4. All the terrorist (actually we dont call them terrorists, its the right wing) who are languishing in the jails will be released and compensated with land, job and money by the Indian Government.
  5. We are planning to remove the CBSE certification to all CBSE schools and give them only to the madrasas in what will be left out of India.
  6. Also the bangladeshi (illegal) immigrants feel very tired after a walk from their country into West Bengal, so we plan to fly Air India flight’s (for free) to and from various points in Bangladesh to bring the immigrants into India fully rejuvenated.
  7. We do have a plan to give West Bengal to Bangladesh but then the “left wing” is opposing the move as they want to “gift” West Bengal to China. We are in talks with the “left wing” and will decide on it ASAP.
  8. We are also willing to give them land and military training for jihadi operations if they promise not to use the training on Indians (but they will be allowed to use the “right wing” as target practice)

Long Live Italy…Errr Sorry …India

Fatwa against BSP’s ‘Jai Bhim’ slogan

Really no comments from me on this one, just laughs.

JAI HIND!! (oops was that blasphemous?)

A leading Islamic seminary has issued a decree declaring the BSP slogan of ‘Jai Bhim’ as un-Islamic and violative of Shariat.

In the fatwa, the Dar-ul Uloom said that the slogan, invoking Dalit leader Bhimrao Ambedkar, was “against the Islamic law as the religion does not permit such a prayer for anyone except Allah”.

The fatwa was issued by chief Mufti Habibur Rehman, Mufti Mehmood and Mufti Zeulislam on Saturday on a query raised by a medico M Mehraj Khan, seminary sources said.

While the decree has sparked concern in the BSP, especially among its Muslim leaders, a cleric from the seminary Asad Madani who recently joined the party said that the slogan was not a “compulsion” for the party workers. Backing the fatwa, Madani said it was based on Shariat law.
