Muslims Adapt Or Leave Julia Gillard Australia PM Hoax

In Australia, terrorism on December 17, 2014 at 13:25

I saw a message attributed to Julia Gillard,PM of Australia asking Muslims to either adapt or Leave.

 

I crosschecked the information and found that this is a hoax.

 

Well, Wish some one had the Guts to say it!

W O W ! She Did It
Again!!!

Australia says NO — This will be the second Time Julia Gillard has done this!

She sure isn’t backing down on her hard line stance and one has to appreciate her belief in the rights of her native countrymen.

A breath of fresh air to see someone lead. Australian Prime Minister does it again!!

The whole world needs a leader like this!

Prime Minister Julia Gillard – Australia

Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia, as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks.

Separately, Gillard angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying she supported spy agencies
monitoring the nation’s mosques. Quote:
‘IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT… Take It Or Leave It. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali , we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians.’

‘This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom.’

‘We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese,

Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society, learn the language!’

‘Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.’

‘We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us.’

‘This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom, ‘THE RIGHT TO LEAVE’.’

‘If you aren’t happy here then LEAVE. We didn’t force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted.’

NOTE: IF we circulate this amongst ourselves in Canada & USA , WE will find the courage to start speaking and voicing the same truths.

If you agree please SEND THIS ON and ON, to as many people as you know…

 

Analysis.

This message, which circulates via email and social media, claims that Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard recently told Muslims living in Australia that they should leave the country if they wished to live under Islamic Sharia law. According to the message, the Gillard government is targeting radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks and supports the monitoring of Mosques by spy agencies. The message, couched as a news report, goes on to quote a diatribe about immigration supposedly delivered by Gillard.

However, Julia Gillard did not make the comments attributed to her. In fact, the message is nothing more than a revamped version of much earlier messages that involved previous Australian Prime Ministers. The first version of the message claimed that it was Prime Minister John Howard who made the remarks. A later version attributed the comments to Prime Minister Kevin Rudd. While the original Howard version did contain some elements of truth, both the Rudd and Gillard versions have no basis in fact.

Soldier Hussaini Brahmins Fight For Muslims

In Hinduism on November 5, 2014 at 11:54

Dronacharya was castigated by Lord Krishna during the Mahabharata War for taking up arms in the Battle saying that Drona has lost the moral right of censuring either Yudhistra or the Pandavas for using the ploy of misinforming him of  the death of his son Aswathama, which resulted in Drona’s death.

 

Reason, Drona was a Brahmin.

 

He is empowered to teach warfare not actually fight, forsaking the duty of a Brahmin.

 

Husseini Brahmins.png

Brahmins who fought for Muslims,Hussein Brahmins

 

Lord Parashurama comes under fire for the same reason for bearing arms against the Kshatriya.

 

Yet there is community  Brahmins that has taken up warfare as their profession , forsaking the Brahmin duties.

 

Mohayal Brahmins of Punjab, who trace their origins to the following seven Rishis/Gotras.

 

  • Bali: Parashar
  • Bhimwal: Kaushal
  • Chhibber/Chibber:Bhrigu
  • Datt: Bharadwaja
  • Lau: Vasishtha
  • Mohan: Kashyap
  • Vaid: Dhanvantri/Bharadwaja

 

In India, they are also called ‘Hussaini Brahmins’ as Muhiyals proudly claim that though being non-Muslim, a small number of them fought in the battle of Karbala on the side of Hussain. Muhiyals are very close to Pushtuns in their character.

For centuries, they never or seldom paid in their revenue until coerced by a military expedition involving a number of casualties on both sides.

On one occasion, they fought three sanguine battles against Babur’s army as they refused to surrender a khatri girl to Mughals who had sought their protection.

The testament to their chivalry is the fact that during Muslim rule, they were the only non-Muslim group on whom the title of Khan or Sultan was ever bestowed. During British rule, a number of them were residing in the military belt of Campbelpur, Rawalpindi and Jhelum area.

A number of Muhiyals served with distinction in British Indian army especially cavalry. They served in many regiments especially 9th, 11th, 13th, and 19th Lancers, 3rd, 4th and 15th Punjab Cavalry and Guides Cavalry.

 

They celebrate Muharram.

 

This community is concentrated  in Punjab,Jammu and Kashmir,Haryana mainly and are present in North India.

Their main languages are Punjabi and Hindi.

Some of these Brahmins are Sikhs.

As Muharram passed off peacefully in the capital amid heavy police presence on Tuesday, a group of brahmans in east Delhi were wondering what the tension was all about. Like every year, these Hindus took out a Muharram taziya of their own in Kalyanpuri, crying and beating their chests in ritual mourning that marks the occasion.

The community proudly claims that one of their ancestors, Rahib Datt, fought in the Karbala battle on the side of Imam Hussain and even sacrificed his sons in the conflict. Ever since that historic battle, they came to be known as Hussaini Brahmins.

All Religions Are Not The Same

In Hinduism on November 5, 2014 at 00:22

The common refrain of Hindus, especially the species who call themselves as Secular, that all religions are the same.

 

All religions are equal.

 

All religion teaches the same thing.

 

Hinduism Christinity Symbols.jpg

Hinduism Christianity

 

I am one of the few who maintain in private conversations and in Public including my blogs that it is sheer non sense and it is nothing but hypocrisy or inadequate knowledge of the Religions being talked about.

 

I have been meaning to write on this for quite sometime, but the spark that made me write now is a piece written by Maria Wirth, which was forwarded to me by  Hindu Association,USA.

 

I am reproducing excerpts towards the close of this post.

 

When people talk of all religions being the same, they mean only two,Christianity and Islam.

 

How are these the same as Hinduism?

 

Christianity was framed , not formed by Constantine some three hundred years after the death of Christ.

 

As a matter of record nobody knows the name of Jesus Christ, Jesus meaning son of God,

 

“A typical Jew in Jesus’ time had only one name, sometimes supplemented with the father’s name or the individual’s hometown.[27] Thus, in the New Testament, Jesus is referred to as “Jesus of Nazareth”[g] (Matthew 26:71), “Joseph’s son” (Luke 4:22)

 

“The etymology of Jesus’ name in the context of the New Testament is generally given as “Yahweh is salvation’

 

The word Christ is derived from the Greek Χριστός (Christos), which is a translation of the Hebrew מָשִׁיחַ (Masiah), meaning the “anointed” and usually transliterated into English as “Messiah

 

Christ meaning,

 

Christ (/krst/; ancient Greek: Χριστός, Christós, meaning “anointed”) is a translation of the Hebrew מָשִׁיחַ (Māšîaḥ) and the Syriac ܡܫܝܚܐ (M’shiha), the Messiah, and is used as a title for Jesus in the New Testament”.(wiki)

 

Hinduism was not founded or framed by any one.

 

Its date is unknown, but to get an idea it is commonly agreed, to have some date, that the Vedas were composed around 5000BC

 

Nor does it have a Preacher.

 

Christianity talks about Father, Son and the Holy Ghost.

 

Will some one tell me how many worship the Father?

 

Hinduism has Attributeless Reality,Brahman and has Reality with names and Forms to fecilitate  concentration.

 

Christianity calls people who believe in things, faiths other than Christianity as heathen and it comes these people to Hell.

 

Lord Krishna says in the Bhagavad Gita in the 18th Chapter to Arjuna that though He (Krishna) has taught Arjuna about what Reality is in the Bhagavad Gita, Arjuna is to thin for himself and choose a path that suits him!

Christianity decries Idol worship,but the irony is it worships +!

Hinduism worships many Gods and Goddesses(there are as many Gods and Goddesses as Human dispositions are)

For explanation on these please read my posts filed under Hinduism/Indian Philosophy.

Hinduism does not believe in individual irresponsibility.

One is responsible for his actions.

There is none to bear your Cross(pun intended)

Hinduism does not believe in Religious conversion, while Christianity breathes it.

Christianity believes in salvation  through Christ.

Hinduism speaks more of your effort.

God does not condone your sins, even if the doer is the personification of God Himself.

Hinduism does not ascribe an entity,Satan solely responsible for everything that is presumed to be evil.

In Hinduism everything is God, including what we humans decide and often change what Good is.

Non violence and forbearance is the hall-mark of Hinduism.

Christianity shuns dissensions.

Hinduism does not impose itself on others, the credo of Christianity is to force it down the throat.

Christian Ethics is being spoken as if it is some thing that has not found in Hinduism.

One tenet of Christianity that you should proselytize against one’s Will is enough to wipe off its Ethics.

People say in Christianity all are equal.

Then why separate Churches for the Dalits?

I am not touching the philosophical aspects as it would need at least five or six posts.

I have briefly stated the most salient points here.

In what way then, is Christianity and Hinduism are the same?

 

Post on Hinduism and Islam follows

 

Observations by someone who grew up in the stifling atmosphere of dogmatic Christianity and appreciates the freshness and freedom of undogmatic Hinduism– and wonders why a section of Hindus are so apologetic about their religion when it actually is the best bet for a fulfilling life.

Hindus used to say, “All religions are equal”. They did not want to see that the two biggies, Christianity and Islam, did not agree. Each of those religions claimed for itself, “We alone are the only true religion. Our God is the only true God.” They pitied Hindus that they might actually believe that by stating that all religions are equal, Hinduism would be elevated to their level. Of course, the ‘true religions’ will never allow this.

Now Hindus say, “We respect all religions. We teach it to our children. Our children hear a lot about Christianity and Islam and how good these religions are. We don’t want to offend anyone, so we teach very little about Hinduism and what we teach is only about superficial things, like festivals and customs and not about the deep philosophy and scientific insights which would portray Hinduism in a good light and might irritate other religions.”

Again, Hindus don’t want to see that Christianity and Islam do not respect Hinduism. The clergy of those religions don’t say it into their face, but to their own flock: “Hindus go to hell, if they don’t convert to the true religion. It is their own fault. We have told them about Jesus and his Father or the Prophet and Allah respectively. Still, they are so arrogant and foolish and hold on to their false gods. But God/Allah is great. He will punish them with eternal hellfire.”

In a variation of “We respect all religions” Hindus also say, “All religions teach the human being to be virtuous and good and lead him to God, the creator. Hindus attend Inter Faith Dialogues and try to find the commonalities. Of course these are there. Hindus try to build on them. “Yes, all religions have good points. Yes, all religions have good people.” They keep repeating that all religions teach goodness, as if to convince themselves. However, deep down, Hindus know that this is not honest and lacks intellectual integrity. They know that Christianity and Islam have gone off track by preaching exclusiveness and hate to their flock. Those religions have encouraged persecution of others and brainwashed otherwise kind human beings into fighting for an imaginary god who supposedly hates all those ‘others’ who don’t believe, what they are told to believe. They have left a trail of bloodshed in history. But Hindus choose to ignore it. ‘Why provoke unnecessarily?’ they might feel, still betraying a psyche wounded by thousand years of oppression.

Is it not time that Hindus call a spade a spade? Swami Vivekananda has said that every Hindu who leaves his faith is not one Hindu less but one enemy more. He said this while India was ruled by the British, and Christians and Muslims were encouraged to feel superior to the “idol worshipping Hindu”. Hindus were not in a position to put the record straight, as their own elite put Hinduism down due to a malicious British education policy. Yet today, 66 years after independence, it is about time to tell the world loudly and boldly what Hinduism is about.

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.”
