Where Are These Muslims?

In human interest on September 26, 2014 at 17:50

My father worked in Bodinayakkanur, Tamil Nadu,as a Teacher before he settled down in Srivilliputhur.

 

He served as a Teacher for 35 years.

 

He had a student, Habib, who was a Devout Muslim at Bodinayakkanur.

 

After quite a few years he received a message from Habib that he had become a DEO, District Educational Officer and he would be visiting the school where my father was working,Srivilliputhur.

 

DEOs visit schools to inspect them and as such,schools, especially aided schools are very vigilant and accord all respects to the DEO when he is on Inspection tour.

 

He had informed my mother, not my father, through a messenger , that it had been long since he ate my mother’s food, he would like Ragi Dosa every night and he would be sending a boy to pick it up daily during his stay at the Traveler’s Bungalow.

 

After completing the inspection, he sat with the Headmaster of the school , informed him that he was satisfied with his inspection and he would be leaving.

 

The Headmaster who knew the relationship of the DEO with my father asked hm whether he had visited my Fathers Class.

 

He is reported to have replied that he could not visit his teachers class and he(Habib) was  an example of what a Teacher could do a poor student.

 

Till his untimely demise, he used to come to our Home at least once a year and pay  his respect to my father!

 

I was in Bangalore with three of my friend and we were staying together for about six years.

 

I had/have a friend Syed Siddique.

 

He might even forget the dates of Ramzan and Bakrid, but very sure about Amavasya!

 

He was very much attached to my parents.

 

He used to go to my mother in kitchen and demand food/special dishes and she would oblige him.

 

My father had a stroke and was admitted to a Hospital.

 

Siddique came till the Hospital and refused to come inside the room saying he could not bear the sight of my father lying sick.

 

My father expired the next day.

 

Siddique was nowhere to be found.

 

While we were preparing the body for funeral.

 

He came, inebriated, crying , demanding that he be allowed to carry my father’s body to the cremation ground.

 

The priests objected to this, him being a Muslim.

 

My eldest brother said that Siddique was more attached to our father than us and my father reciprocated that.

 

Siddique carried the body.

 

He vowed that he would not eat non vegetarian food and sop drinking till the thirteenth day ceremony and he stuck to it,

 

When I lost my first wife he was one of the few who was by  side leaving his family commitments and consoled me.

 

Even after 40 years, I can not forget his affection .

 

I am still searching for him for we went our ways because of our profession.

 

He is a native of Chozhachakkaranallur,near Myiladuthurai, en route to Vaitheeswara Koil.

 

I have tried to locate him, in vain.

 

If some one, his children, grand children happen to read this remind ‘Swamigal’, that’s how I used to call him because of his knowledge of Hinduism, or Vellai Iyer is searching for him.

 

Now where are all these Muslims Gone?

 

Are we missing them or they are not showing up?

Prophet’s Grave To Be Demolished By Saudi Govt

In Islam on September 24, 2014 at 17:03

A 61 page secret note prepared by Academics has recommended the shifting of the grave of Prophet Mohammed in Saudi Arabia to an anonymous grave yard.

 

 

This note is being considered by the Saudi  Government for implementation.

 

Saudi Arabia follows a stricter version of Islam and it considers the veneration of an individual,Prophet Mohammed as sacrilegious.

 

“The controversial proposals are part of a consultation document by a leading Saudi academic which has been circulated among the supervisors of al-Masjid al-Nabawi mosque in Medina, where the remains of the Prophet are housed under the Green Dome, visited by millions of pilgrims and venerated as Islam’s second-holiest site.

The formal custodian of the mosque is Saudi Arabia’s ageing monarch King Abdullah.

The plans, brought to light by another Saudi academic who has exposed and criticised the destruction of holy places and artefacts in Mecca – the holiest site in the Muslim world – call for the destruction of chambers around the Prophet’s grave which are particularly venerated by Shia Muslims.

The 61-page document also calls for the removal of Mohammed’s remains to the nearby al-Baqi cemetery, where they would be interred anonymously.

There is no suggestion that any decision has been taken to act upon the plans. The Saudi government has in the past insisted that it treats any changes to Islam’s holiest sites with “the utmost seriousness”.

But such is the importance of the mosque to both Sunni and Shia Muslims that Dr Irfan al-Alawi warned that any attempt to carry out the work could spark unrest. It also runs the risk of inflaming sectarian tensions between the two branches of Islam, already running perilously high due to the conflicts in Syria and Iraq.

Hardline Saudi clerics have long preached that the country’s strict Wahhabi interpretation of Islam – an offshoot of the Sunni tradition – prohibits the worship of any object or “saint”, a practice considered “shirq” or idolatrous.

Dr Alawi, director of the Islamic Heritage Research Foundation, said: “People visit the chambers, which are the rooms where the Prophet’s family lived, and turn towards the burial chamber to pray.

“Now they want to prevent pilgrims from attending and venerating the tomb because they believe this is shirq, or idolatry. But the only way they can stop people visiting the Prophet is to get him out and into the cemetery.”

For centuries Muslim pilgrims have made their way to Mecca in order to visit the Kaaba – a black granite cubed building said to be built by Abraham, around which al-Masjid al-Haram, or the Grand Mosque, is built, and towards which every Muslim faces when they pray.”

Islam Reined In Japan Muslims Can Obtain Citizenship

In consumer forum, Islam on June 28, 2014 at 10:04

There have been posts that Islam has been banned in Japan.

 

It is not so.

 

2006 study of Muslim residents in Japan. image,png

2006 study of Muslim residents in Japan.

 

Banned?

 

1. Japan has put strict restrictions on the Islam and Muslims !
Have you ever read in the news paper that a political leader or a Prime Minister from an Islamic nation have ever visited Japan? Have you ever come across any news paper that King of Iranor Saudi Arabia has visited Japan?
The reasons are:

a) Japan is the only nation that does not give citizenship to Muslims.
b) In Japan permanent residentship is not given to Muslims.
c) There is strong ban on the propagation of Islam in Japan.
d) In the University of Japan Arabic or any Islamic language is not taught.
e) One cannot import ‘Kuran’ published in Arabic language.
f) According to data published by Japanese government, it has given citizenship to only 2 lakhs Muslims. These Muslims speak Japanese and carry their religious ritual in the same.
g) Japan is the only country in the world having negligible number of embassies of Islamic countries.
h) Japanese people are not attracted to Islam at all.
i) Muslims residing in Japan are the employees of foreign companies.
j) Even today Visas are not granted to Muslim doctors, engineers or managers send by foreign company.
k) In majority of the companies, it is stated in their laws that no Muslims should apply for the job.
l) Japan government is of an opinion that Muslims are fundamentalist and even in the era of globalization, they are not willing to change their Muslim laws.
m) Muslims can not even think about getting a rented house in Japan.
n) If anyone comes to know that his neighbor is a Muslim then the whole colony stays alert.
o) No one can start a Islamic or Arabic ‘Madarsa’ in Japan
p) There is no personal law in Japan.
q) If Japanese women marry a Muslim then she is banned.
r) According to Mr. Komico Yagi (Head of Department, Tokyo University) “There is a mind frame in Japan that Islam is narrow minded religion and one should stay away from it.”
s) Freelance journalist Mohammd Juber turned many Islamic countries after 9/11 incidence and at that time he went even to Japan. He found out Japanese are confident that extremist can do no harm in Japan.

 

Islam is kept under check by tough legislation.,

 

The constitution and other laws and policies protect religious freedom and, in practice, the government generally respected religious freedom. The trend in the government’s respect for religious freedom did not change significantly during the year.

There were few reports of societal abuse or discrimination based on religious affiliation, belief, or practice.

The U.S. government closely monitored the state of religious freedom, conducted outreach to minority religious groups and NGOs, and discussed religious freedom with the government-

The Statistics Bureau estimates the population to be 127.5 million as of October..

The Religious Juridical Persons Law, as amended in response to the 1995 sarin gas attack on Tokyo’s subway system by Aum Shinrikyo, provides the government with some authority to supervise certified religious groups.

The law requires certified religious groups to disclose their assets to the government and empowers the government to investigate possible violations of regulations governing for-profit activities.

Authorities have the right to suspend a religious group’s for-profit activities if the group violates these regulations.

The government does not observe any religious holidays as national holidays.

 

Can A Muslim become a Citizen of Japan?

 

Yes.

 

The Japanese Constitution states that

第14条
すべて国民は、法の下に平等であって、人種、信条、性別、社会的身分又は門地により、政治的、経済的又は社会関係において、差別されない。

Article 14:
All of the people are equal under the law and there shall be no discrimination in political, economic or social relations because of race,creed, sex, social status or family origin.

“In Japan permanent residency is not given to Muslims.”

This is also easily demonstrably false. If you live in Japan you will probably eventually meet somebody who is Muslim. There are a lot more permanent residents in Japan than there are naturalized citizens.

However, even if you don’t, a look at the official immigration statistics for Japan shows a large percentage of legal immigrants, both non-permanent and those with Permanent Residency Status of Residence (永住者資格eijūsha shikaku), come from countries where the vastmajority of the citizens are Muslim or the official state religion is Islam.

Studies of Muslims in Japan have shown that about 35% are Indonesian, 15% are from Bangladesh, and 10% are from Pakistan.

Collector Removes Hindu Symbols Upaveeda Sindoor

In India on May 31, 2014 at 16:07

This has not happened in Abu Dhabi ,Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan or Pakistan.

 

This took place in Sitharkottai, Ramanathapuram district ,Tamil Nadu.

 

District Collector's  Office,Ramanathapuram.Iamge.jpg.

District Collector‘s Office,Ramanathapuram

 

Students sporting tilak on their foreheads and amulets on their bodies were stopped by the Physical Instruction teacher of a Government-aided minority institution before they entered the school premises.

 

The sacred threads and rakshas (amulets) worn for protection round the necks or arms were cut off, and the sindoor, tilak on the foreheads erased.

 

What s most painful is that the Collector who ordered thus is one Nanadakumar, presumed to be a Hindu!

 

Read this report.

 

None of the Newspapers, TV channels, let alone the Secular Media reported this or reported in such a way that no one notices it!

 

 

This is not the first time of such incidents happening , the media keeping mum on such incidents and the Government taking no action.

 

My post of December 20,2013.

 

Ramanathapuram district, 527 km south of Chennai, which houses Rameswaram Temple and many holy shrines, is getting out of bound for outsiders. Local Jamaath Councils have issued ‘fatwas’ declaring Muslim-majority villages out of bound for people even from the district itself.

Entrances to Athiyuthu, Puthuvalassai, Panaikulam, Azhagankulam and Sitharkottai sport such boards, all put up by the local Jamaath Councils. “There are boards deep inside these villages which declare outsiders are not allowed,” said B Arumugam, who acted as a guide to this correspondent. Interestingly, all these villages have a strong Muslim population.

“Advertising (banners, posters and pamphlets) and honking (from vehicles) without permission is prohibited inside the Panchayath. By Order – Muslim Jamaath Thajul IslamSangh, Pottakavayal”, is the board which welcomes the visitor to the village entrance on the Attrankarai Road, hardly 10 kilometre from Ramanathapuram town. “For the last 20 years, only Muslim candidates had been elected from this constituency. Only Muslimscould be elected from this Assembly constituency,” said N Suriyaprakash, a civil engineer-turned-politician.”

 

Now to the present story.

 

When agitated parents rushed to complain to Ms. Zarina Lotus, headmistress of the Muhammadiya Higher Secondary School, Sitharkottai, Ramanathapuram district, she reportedly claimed to be implementing thediktat of the District Collector, as per the version of Shri Ramesh (name changed), father of one of the affected children. The agitated parents accompanied by Shri Prabhakaran, district head of Hindu Makkal Katchi, met District Collector K Nandakumar and complained about the incident. But the District Collector not only justified his order, but challenged them to take the matter to the courts, as per the version reported by the Hindu Makkal Katchi leader.

 

Since the students come to school sporting religious symbols, quarrels ensue and hence students have been sent to Reformation Schools. Policemen in Mufti who have been keeping watch had reportedly stated that the raison d’etre behind the occurrence of these quarrels are religious symbols and listed the schools where such incidents occurred”, continued Ms. Zarina Lotus.

 

Intrigued, the writer and some public minded citizens contacted headmistress Zarina Lotus over the telephone on January 21, 2014, and she again claimed that she was only obeying the orders of the District Collector. Ms. Lotus claimed that during a meeting of headmasters of high schools and higher secondary schools, the Collector had stated that the teachers should advise the students not to sport sacred threads or apply tilak or sport any object that would represent their religion. We sought to know the reason why the Collector would issue such an order.

 

The headmistress replied that since students come to school sporting religious symbols, at times quarrels ensue, and hence some students have been sent to Reformation Schools. Policemen in mufti who have been keeping watch on the trouble had reported that the raison d’etre behind these quarrels were the religious symbols; they listed the schools where such incidents had occurred.

 

Accordingly, we sent an e-mail to Shri K Nandakumar on January 22, but have received no reply till the time of writing. His personal assistant, Shri Dharman, said the District Collector was busy and could be contacted later, and disconnected the telephone. Subsequent attempts to contact him failed.

 

Other Hindu bashing activities in Ramanathapuram reported.

 

  • Ban on beating of drums in Amman Temples.
  • Changing of routes traditionally adopted by Temple processions.
  • Filing of a case against Hindus, who complained about the slaying of a cow by certain Moslems near a temple at a village called Azhagan kulam.
  • No action against those who broke the memorial pillar of Swami Vivekananda.
  • Punitive action was not taken against those who hoisted the national flag tied to slippers in the village of Pudhumadam.
  • Boards announcing ban on non Moslems entering the village and those banning playing of songs by vehicles on public roads have neither been prevented nor removed.
  • No action was taken against those fundamentalist Moslems, belonging to the area and other states who underwent arms training at Periyapatnam.

I am taking this issue to PM Narendra Modi’s Office through his Socil Media Portal of which I am an invited member.

 

Will some one take this to Tamil Nadu CM’s Notice?

 

In the meanwhile, this is the contact details of the Collector ,Ramanathapuram.

 

Please send Emails on this issue, seeking clarification on this issue/redress/withdrawal of the order.

Why Less Muslims In Lok Sabha-Owaisi The Answer

In India, Islam on May 23, 2014 at 09:33

 

The representation of Muslims in this Lok Sabha will be the lowest since the first general election of 1952. The 16th Lok Sabha will have just 24 Muslim MPs, down from 30 in the 15th. That translates to 4.4% of the strength of the House. 



Muslims constituted 4.3% of the first Lok Sabha in 1952, but their proportion has hovered between five and six per cent for the last quarter of a century after dropping from a high of 9.3% or 49 members in the LS elected in the 1980 elections. 



The incoming House will have no Muslim MPs from Uttar Pradesh, a first. It will also not have any from Maharashtra, a large state with a substantial Muslim population. The only states to have elected MPs from the community are West Bengal (eight), Jammu & Kashmir (four), Bihar (four), Kerala (three), Assam (two) and Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Lakshadweep (one each). Of these, of course J&K as well as Lakshadweep have Muslim-majority populations.(Zee News)
