Mohammadden “Exorcist” Tasawer Islam believes his friend and fellow “Exorcist” Zakariyya Islam was murdered by “someone who controls ……….. ‘Jinns’” aka Djinn’s aka aka Djinni’s aka Genie’s as in Alladin and his Lamp:

Tasawer Islam added: 'The only person that I can think would have something against him is someone to do with his work.

'It will be someone who controls these powers 'Jinns'. They have to go through a lot of effort to attack someone with Jinns and if he has exorcised someone then they have to go through all the trouble again.

'They appear ordinary on the street but in the darkness of night that's what they do.'


Read it All:

Muslim exorcist who expelled demons by quoting passages from the Koran is stabbed to death at his east London black magic healing centre

Meanwhile the tabloid “The Sun” reports that cases of Mohammadden Exorcism to drive out Jinn’s is on the rise in the UK:

Black magic healer pierced girl, 3, with 11 needles to cure her of ‘evil spirit’ : Sinister rise of Islamic exorcisms in Britain

With the UK seemingly having a lot of Jinn’s running about the Islamic Republic of Pakistan will no doubt be digging up and sending former senior Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission (PAEC) official Sultan Bashiruddin Mahmood there to further his research on solving the Islamic Republic of Pakistan’s energy problems by tapping Jinn power:

Sultan Bashiruddin Mahmood, a nuclear engineer who was one of three Pakistani scientists arrested last week because of their suspected connections with the Taliban, is an expert on nuclear weapons production, but also a fundamentalist Muslim with unorthodox scientific views, scientists familiar with the Pakistani scientific circles said today.

During more than 30 years in Pakistan's nuclear program, he pioneered construction of plants to produce enriched uranium and plutonium for Pakistan's small but growing arsenal of atomic weapons. But as a subscriber to a brand of what is known to practitioners as ''Islamic science,'' which holds that the Koran is a fount of scientific knowledge, Mr. Bashiruddin Mahmood has published papers concerning djinni, which are described in the Koran as beings made of fire. He has proposed that these entities could be tapped to solve the energy crisis, and he has written on how to understand the mechanics of life after death. …………………..

Mohammadden Terrorist Rafik Mohamad Yousef who was provided refuge in Germany and was previously convicted there to an 8 year jail term for membership of the Mohammadden terrorist group Ansar-ul-Islam, stabs a Policewoman and in turn is himself shot dead:

Germany: Iraqi al-Qaeda Islamist Rafik Mohamad Yousef killed by police after Berlin knife attack

In a separate news item on the same case, the UK tabloid Express advises “GERMAN authorities were blocked in their attempt to deport a known terrorist who stabbed a Berlin policewoman in the neck today...because EU officials feared he would face the death penalty in his native Iraq.”:

EU rules STOPPED Germany from deporting terrorist shot dead in Berlin knife attack

At a time when providing refuge to Mohammadden Arabs is a hot topic, Germany and the EU will be well advised to ponder on this incident where a Mohammadden refugee of Arab extraction gave two hoots about those who provided him refuge by attempting to kill one of his hosts.

The UK finally wakes up to the help to Mohammadden Terrorists that is provided by UK’s Academic Institutions such as King’s College London, Queen Mary University, the School of Oriental And African Studies aka SOAS and Kingston University by imposing a new legal duty on Academic Institutions.

UK’s Telegraph reports that “From Sept 21, the new legal duty will require colleges to put in place specific policies to stop extremists radicalising students, tackle gender segregation at events and support students at risk of radicalisation. The so-called Prevent Duty requires establishments to ensure they have proper risk assessment processes for speakers and ensure those espousing extremist views do not go unchallenged”:

British universities that give the floor to extremist speakers are named and shamed

David Cameron will today expose some of Britain’s leading universities as havens for Islamist fanatics as he announces a new legal duty for colleges to stop extremists targeting students.

The Prime Minister will name and shame the universities that regularly give platforms to hate preachers who are determined to undermine British values. They include King’s College London as well as Queen Mary University and SOAS.

In total, some 70 events involving Islamist preachers were held on campuses last year.

Mr Cameron will tell colleges they must stop giving fanatics “the oxygen they need to flourish”.


The Government’s Extremism Analysis Unit has concluded that there were at least 70 events held on campuses last year that involved hate preachers. Queen Mary, King’s College, SOAS and Kingston University held most events, the unit said.

It is the first time the Government has detailed those institutions who most regularly host fanatics.

Speakers included the homophobic preachers Haitham al-Haddad, Dr Uthman Lateef and Imran Ibn Mansur.

Hamza Tzortzis, who has called for an Islamic state and expressed his hostility towards Western values, and Dr Salman Butt were also highlighted.

Below Facebook post by a US bureaucrat gets Mohammadden group Council on American-Islamic Relations, worked up. Repeated attempts by Mohammadden migrants to impose their alien and imported religious values on host populations who had generously invited them, on occasion by resorting to violence, has not gone unnoticed by host populations and this attempted imposition of religious values of Mohammaddenism is being challenged:

X Posting article from the “Internal Security" thread on how child immunization program in Kerala’s Mohammadden majority Malappuram district is being adversely impacted by resistance being put up by adherents of Mohammaddenism to the program.

Very shocking to see this level of stupidity happening in one of the most literate states in India with the only figurative silver lining being that resistance to immunization has not reached the level seen in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan where immunization teams are frequently killed!:

Surasena wrote:
Orthodoxy defeats immunisation
ABDUL LATHEEF NAHA

"I have more trust in Allah than in doctors. When you trust doctors more than God, it is perfidy,” asserts Abdul Rahman, a madrasa teacher in Tirur, after a Malappuram child succumbed to diphtheria on Thursday.

This is no surprise in this district, where a worrying re-emergence of diphtheria is putting at risk considerable swathes of its population who still stubbornly shun immunisation and vaccination for supposedly religious reasons. On Thursday, 12-year-old Ameeruddin of Kondotty, who lived in a local orphanage died at the Government Medical College in Kozhikode. He was just one among the thousands of non-immunised children in the district. Over a dozen Malappuram children are now under observation for suspected diphtheria, and three more have been confirmed to have it.

By the latest official count, Malappuram has 23,912 out of 342,657 children below the age of five in the district, the highest in the State, kept out of all immunisation efforts.


That apart, official data also says more than one out of every three children aged between 5 and 10 – or a whopping 36 per cent – growing up in the district never had any immunisation. That leaves them vulnerable to everything from tuberculosis, diphtheria, whooping cough, tetanus, hepatitis-B, meningitis, measles, and polio myelitis. It is not that they had no access to immunisation. Too many of them were deliberately denied immunisation by their own parents or kin.

Two locally powerful and orthodox groups have been traditionally leading a stiff resistance to immunisation.

These include a large section of families owing allegiance to the Sunni faction led by Kanthapuram AP Aboobacker Musliar, and families of hard core Jama’at-e-Islami followers.


With the diphtheria debate now throwing up questions, Jama’at-e-Islami leader Shaikh Mohammed Karakunnu told The Hindu that to immunise the children or not was a question of “personal choice and freedom’’ of the people, and claimed that his organisation has not issued an official call to boycott all immunisation efforts. “We have not issued any such directive,” he said.

The Kanthapuram Sunni group too claimed a similar stance. Although no religious groups or leaders have officially opposed immunisation, none of them has made a call to the community to vaccinate their children, either.

“It is hard to convince the opposers, who claim themselves to be educated,” says the District Medical Officer, V. Ummer Farook.

Even the Indian Union Muslim League (IUML), the second largest constituent of the State’s ruling coalition with a near-complete political monopoly hold over Malappuram, has yet to do anything substantial, apart from its Late leader Syed Mohammedali Shihab Thangal and his younger brother Syed Sadiqali Shihab Thangal consenting to inaugurate a couple of oral polio vaccine drives earlier.

IUML district general secretary P. Abdul Hameed said that his party was now thinking of launching a campaign supporting immunisation. “It has now become the need of the hour,” he said.

There are also others who are not convinced, and for reasons apart from the religious. “We do not oppose immunisation per se. But we are against using children for experimental purposes,” says Mohammed Jaseel, spokesperson for the Institution for Homoeopaths Kerala (IHK).

Dr. Jaseel says a section of homoeopaths were opposing immunisation as vaccination was still being done for already eradicated diseases. “Naturally they suspect commercial interests to be behind mass immunisation,” he said.

The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) translates parts of an article in Arabic by Kurdish-Iraqi columnist Anas Mahmoud Al-Sheikh Mazhar and had “harshly criticized Muslim clerics for their apathy and silence in the face of ISIS and its actions, and wondered whether they should not declare jihad and struggle against the organization in light of the dangers it posed”

This article could very well also apply to the sundry Mohammadden Terrorist organisations fomented by the Islamic republic of Pakistan to target Indian’sx:

September 15, 2015Special Dispatch No.6159
Iraqi Columnist: Why Aren't Muslim Clerics Calling For Jihad Against ISIS?

In his July 9, 2015 column, titled "Why Won't They Declare Jihad Against ISIS? Secularists and Infidels Are More Zealous for Islam than the Sheikhs," in the Arabic internet daily Raialyoum.com, Kurdish-Iraqi columnist Anas Mahmoud Al-Sheikh Mazhar harshly criticized Muslim clerics for their apathy and silence in the face of ISIS and its actions, and wondered whether they should not declare jihad and struggle against the organization in light of the dangers it posed. He added that Muslim clerics should be ashamed of themselves, particularly considering that foreign politicians and armies have rushed to defend Islam from ISIS. The following are excerpts from his column:[1]

The Muslim Clerics' Silence In Face Of ISIS Actions Is Incomprehensible

"In the past, we were accustomed to seeing clerics ascend to mosque pulpits and launch their lofty sermons with attacks on the mistaken policies and actions of the politicians in their countries... All the preacher had to do was to raise his voice and shout, and the worshippers and listeners would moan and cry 'Allah Akbar' after every word emerging from his throat. Thus, the measure of a preacher's skill was his ability to attack government policy. Preachers would compete vigorously amongst each other, and the leading mosques were those that frequently dealt with politics and attacked [politicians].

"This 'fashion' continued until ISIS emerged and took over large swaths of the [Middle East] region. Then, as though ordained by fate, these voices fell silent. Their interest in politics waned, and religious matters took up more of their sermons – and not only in the mosques. The clerics and preachers filling the TV channels [also] dealt mainly with the life and times of the Prophet [Muhammad], with religious laws and affairs, and with questions concerning the afterlife and its horrors, to the point where viewers must have felt that they were living in an entirely different world.

"In light of the circumstances in the region, and in light of the plot against Islam being carried out by extremist organizations that have twisted this tolerant religion and replaced it with one consumed by murder, slaughter, floggings, and chopping off of hands, we see Islam's sheikhs and clerics living in enviable peace and complacency, paying no heed to the perplexed Muslims, who by now are confused about their faith and no longer know right from wrong.

"How can clerics who consider themselves zealous about their religion remain silent as the grave, in light of the events in the region and the acts against Islam that these organizations are committing? Could it be that we are wrong and that the true Islam is the one that ISIS preaches? If this is Islam, why be ashamed to admit it[?] And if it is not, why are they refraining from telling the truth?

"Some may say that most Muslim clerics have expressed anti-ISIS positions. This is true, but can such a grave problem be addressed merely with [weak] verbal opposition, without a serious and determined stand that reflects this opposition? We have seen clerics conduct major popular campaigns against matters that are trivial, to say the least, and devote all their time and resources to [these matters]. But faced with the problem of twisting the religion, they settle for [mere] verbal objections, and provide them only when directly asked to do so.

"It is strange that some of the 'sheikhs of Islam' encouraged the Arab peoples' enthusiasm to topple their rulers during the Arab Spring – issuing fatwas calling for jihad against them, even though the Arab rulers' crimes did not compare to despicable crimes of ISIS. Over the decades [of their rule,] tyrannical Arab regimes did not distort Islam the way ISIS has over the past three years. It is also strange that some sheikhs were enraged when the Muslim Brotherhood regime in Egypt was ousted, since it is at best a political group or faction. These sheikhs described those who made this change [the ouster of the Muslim Brotherhood regime] as infidels who have left Islam, and even incited the Egyptian people against their new government and declared jihad against it – yet they are silent in light of the actions of these terrorist organizations who are trying to topple Islam as a religion, not just some party or group. Doesn't the danger posed by ISIS require them to declare jihad against it?"

Shame On You For Remaining Silent In Light Of The Dangers Of ISIS – While "Infidels" Protect Us

"There are three possible explanations for their silence in light of the phenomenon and behavior of ISIS:

"One – the sheikhs and preachers of Islam are cowards and dare not speak the truth, fearing that extremist organizations will kill them, leading them to act in contradiction to their [own] sermons, which encourage telling the truth even at the cost of one's life.

"Two – they [believe] in their hearts that this is Islam, and are [therefore] pleased by the actions of these extremist groups and believe in them. Therefore, regimes and security mechanisms should treat these sheikhs like any other terrorist, and apply the terrorism laws to them.

"Three – their regimes are involved in the actions of ISIS and they are unable to disobey their leaders. Therefore they follow these leaders at the expense of the truth, without feeling that the responsibility is on their shoulders as clerics. This makes them hypocrites.

"If we give the clerics the benefit of the doubt, and choose the first option – i.e. that they are motivated by fear, even though this is a shameful option – we say to them: Shame on you for standing by and playing blind, deaf, mute, and dumb – while armies, nations, and peoples that you have termed infidels rush to defend us and our religion, even if they are also defending themselves. It is shameful that the European politicians [whom you call] 'infidels' come out to purge the Islamic arena of this extremist ideology, and that secular Arab artists [whom you call] 'murtadoun' [apostates] criticize ISIS actions that deviate from the straight path – while you hide behind mosque pulpits and utter not a sound, as though it does not concern you.

"You wretches... Have you no shame?"

Election Stunt Or Genuine Change ? Donald Trump Softens His Stance on Muslims :roll:


I love the Muslims: Donald Trump


In what would appear as a sudden departure from his earlier stance, Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump said on Saturday Muslims are ‘great people.’

“I love the Muslims. I think they’re great people,” Trump said, while responding to a question whether they were a threat to the United States.



In what would appear as a sudden departure from his earlier stance, Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump said on Saturday Muslims are ‘great people.’

“I love the Muslims. I think they’re great people,” Trump said, while responding to a question whether they were a threat to the United States.

Read: Trump considers getting ‘rid of’ Muslims when president

As Trump addressed high school students at their homecoming in Iowa, one student challenged his earlier comment where he had said he would consider getting ‘rid of’ Muslims. The student said she considered Muslim-Americans to be an important part of the country and asked whether the Republican presidential front-runner would consider having a Muslim in his cabinet or on his ticket. ”Oh, absolutely,” Trump responded. “No problem with that.”[*]


[*] In this day and age of "political correctness", he cannot be seen, at least, in public to be Anti- Malsi :mrgreen:

Appearing unusually subdued, Trump advised students to stay away from alcohol and drugs and encouraged them to pursue professions they felt passionate about. The crowd was a mixture of supporters as well as opponents. Taylor Donner, a senior at Urbandale High School who attended Trump’s speech said he was a fan. But there were others who were supporting different candidates including Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.

At least 54 people killed in bomb blasts in Nigeria's Maiduguri

MAIDUGURI, Nigeria, Sept 21 (Reuters) - At least 54 people were killed and 90 wounded in a multiple bomb attack in the northeastern Nigerian city of Maiduguri in Borno state on Sunday evening, a police spokesman said on Monday.

The city has been free of attack for about a month. It was last hit by a bomb at the end of July and there was a skirmish with suspected Boko Haram militants on the outskirts in mid-August.

"A suspected Boko Haram suicide bomber detonated IEDs (improvised explosive devices) at a mosque in Ajilari and some insurgents also threw IEDs at a viewing centre. Total casualty figure is now 54," Victor Isuku, a police spokesman in Maiduguri, said.

A Nigerian army spokesman said on Sunday that three bombs had gone off.

There was still no claim for the attack but it bore the hallmarks of Islamist jihadi group Boko Haram that has been trying to carve out a state in the country's northeast since 2009.

Maiduguri is the birthplace of the insurgency that has killed thousands and displaced 2.1 million people.

After President Muhammadu Buhari's inauguration, attacks rose across northern Nigeria and Maiduguri was hit on a near weekly basis.

A new offensive launched by the Nigerian army to clear Boko Haram out of some more towns over the last month saw a sharp drop in the frequency of attacks in Borno, the worst affected by the insurrection, and neighbouring states.

GOP candidate Carson: Muslim shouldn't be elected president

WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson says Islam is antithetical to the Constitution, and he doesn't believe that a Muslim should be elected president.

Carson, a devout Christian, says a president's faith should matter to voters if it runs counter to the values and principles of America.

Responding to a question during an interview broadcast Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press," he described the Islamic faith as inconsistent with the Constitution.

"I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation," Carson said. "I absolutely would not agree with that."

He did not specify in what way Islam ran counter to constitutional principles.

Carson's comments drew strong criticism from the country's largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

...

Carson's comments came amid lingering fallout over Republican Donald Trump's refusal last week to take issue with a man during a campaign event who wrongly called President Barack Obama a Muslim and said Muslims are "a problem in this country."

Also speaking on NBC on Sunday, Trump said that a Muslim in the White House is "something that could happen... Some people have said it already happened, frankly."

http://news.yahoo.com/gop-candidate-car ... tion.html#


Ben Carson won’t back down from comments about Muslims

Ben Carson is doubling down on his controversial belief that a Muslim should not be elected president, telling the Hill newspaper that the commander in chief should be “sworn in on a stack of Bibles, not a Koran.”

The Republican hopeful sparked a firestorm on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday when he was asked if a president’s faith should matter in the wake of Donald Trump’s refusal to correct a supporter who falsely asserted President Barack Obama is Muslim.

Carson said it would matter because he does not believe Islam is consistent with the U.S. Constitution.

...

“I do not believe Sharia is consistent with the Constitution of this country,” Carson said. “Muslims feel that their religion is very much a part of your public life and what you do as a public official, and that’s inconsistent with our principles and our Constitution.”

https://www.yahoo.com/politics/ben-cars ... 84511.html


Why Ben Carson won't apologize for anti-Muslim comments

GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson is standing by his statement that he would not support a Muslim for president, despite the controversy the statement has created.

Ben Carson won’t apologize for saying he “absolutely would not” support a Muslim for president. He’s doubling down on this opinion despite the controversy it’s created.

On Sunday, a spokesman for Dr. Carson’s presidential campaign said that Carson does not believe individual Muslims should be barred from running for the White House. But the retired neurosurgeon would not vote for a Muslim, and does not believe others should.

“He has great respect for the Muslim community, but there is a huge gulf between the faith and practice of the Muslim faith, and our Constitution and American values,” Carson spokesman Doug Watts told NBC News.

...

t’s true that substantial numbers of US voters agree with Carson. In a 2015 Gallup poll, 38 percent of respondents said that they would not vote for an otherwise well-qualified Muslim presidential candidate. The comparable figure for Republicans only was 55 percent, a majority.

But the flip side of this is that a majority of the nation – 60 percent – answered “yes” to the vote-for-a-Muslim question. Thus Republicans intent on winning in 2016 are face-palming over the fact that Carson has been drawn into a debate that won’t help the party in the United States at large, and could have been easily avoided

In the UK, Mohammaddens profit handsomely from Mohammadden Terrorism by informing, for a monetary fee, on co-religionists to authorities largely made up of Non-Mohammadden Abrahamics of the Christist faith.

Why do adherents of Mohammaddenism who loudly claim their faith is “The Religion Of Peace” require the blandishment of money in order to do their civic duty and provide information to authorities on Mohammaddens who are bent on proving the claim that Mohammaddenism is anything but “The Religion of Peace”?

Where is the gratitude of the present day Mohammaddens of the UK for the Christists who so generously permitted the overwhelming majority them or their forbears entry into the UK as immigrants?

Germany slams Saudi Arabia's offer to build mosques for Syrian refugees as ‘cynical’

Politicians in Germany have criticised Saudi Arabia’s offer to build 200 mosques in the country for the ‘spiritual needs’ of Syrian refugees, given that the Kingdom has not offered to take in refugees fleeing from the civil war in Syria.

“No, it is more than cynical. This is no Muslim Brotherhood. Where is the solidarity in the Arab world?”
Andrea Scheuer, general secretary of the Christian Social Union in Bavaria (CSU) party in Bavaria which is Chancellor Angela Merkel’s ally in the state, asked.

Saudi Arabia offered to build mosques in Germany as tens of thousands of refugees make their way to the Hungarian border to seek asylum in European countries, especially Germany, which will be taking in 800,000 migrants this year.

Saudi monarch King Salman reportedly made the offer through diplomatic channels and the news surfaced in Lebanese newspaper al diyar.

Another German politician, Stephan Mayer, the domestic policy spokesperson of both the CSU and Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union (CDU) in parliament in Berlin, agreed with Scheuer, adding, “Germany does not need a cash donation to build 200 mosques but solidarity with the refugees.”

CDU Deputy Chairman Armin Laschet also voiced his opinion and said, “Instead of talking about funding mosques, Saudi Arabia should be thinking about taking refugees.”

Following the Saudi offer, there was widespread outrage in Germany, with many newspapers expressing indignation that Germany would even consider such an offer from a country which gave out extreme punishments such as stoning, flogging and limb mutiliation.

My presumption then is that your comment is built on the disproportionately large presence of Mohammaddens in the film industry with a seemingly never ending procession of male stars going by the surname Khan conditioning Hindu women to fall easy prey to Love Jihad not only because of Bollywood glamorising Mohammadden actors in reel life. That these same Mohammadden actors in real life have indulged in Love Jihad with a Hindu wife to show as trophy is a bonus as it were. Have I somewhat got it?

Your comment on role of the education system and social ecosystem, has however eluded me.

Putin opens one of Europe’s biggest mosques in Russia

Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow on Wednesday opened one of the biggest mosques in Europe, warning against the lure of jihadists as the government frets over its citizens fighting for the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) group.Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas were the guests of honor at the unveiling of the 20,000-square meter mosque in the Russian capital. “This mosque will become an extremely important spiritual center for Muslims in Moscow and the whole Russia,” Putin said in a televised speech.“It will be a source for education, spreading humanist ideas and the true values of Islam.”The turquoise-domed mosque can host over 10,000 worshippers and is one of the largest in the country that will help to serve Russia's estimated 20 million Muslims.The $170 million (150 million-euro) project, which took a decade to complete, caused controversy over the destruction of an earlier mosque that stood on the site.Moscow -- which has battled an Islamic insurgency in its volatile southern Caucasus region -- is worried about the pull of extremist groups, especially ISIS jihadists fighting in Syria and Iraq. Interior Minister Vladimir Kolokoltsev last week estimated that some 1,800 Russian citizens are fighting for the radical group.Putin in his speech lashed out at jihadist groups for their “attempts to cynically exploit religious feeling for political ends.”“We see what is happening in the Middle East where terrorists from the so-called ISIS group are compromising a great world religion, compromising Islam, in order to sow hate,” he said.Putin was later set to meet Erdogan for talks that were expected to focus on the Syrian conflict, as the West frets about a buildup of Russian forces in the war-torn country.

IED Mubarak demonstrated on Eid al Adha day as apparent Green on Green Intra-Mohammadden religion motivated sectarian violence continues unabated. Two Suicide bombers suspected to belong to Sunni Mohammadden terrorist outfit Islamic State, attack Shia Mohammadden Mosque in Yemen on Mohammaddenism’s religiously significant day of Eid al Adha aka Bakrid, killing 25.

The frequency and lack of any meaningful Mohammadden outrage at the attacks by Mohammaddens on Mohammadden places of worship resulting in the killing of worshippers, leads me to conclude that Mohammadden protests at the demolition of a derelict Mosque built by demolishing a Hindu place of worship that killed nobody, namely Babri Masjid, should be dismissed as nothing more than manufactured outrage to support the theme of Mohammadden “victimisation”. Practice followed by adherents of Mohammaddenism in Mohammadden majority countries, going by frequency of occurrence, and the lack of meaningful protest by Mohammaddens about these events, clearly indicates that destruction of own religious places of worship leading to the killing of worshippers is not a taboo activity in Mohammaddenism.

Since I have not come across a single instance over the past decade of a Buddhist blowing up a Buddhist place of worship, Christist blowing up a Christist place of worship, Confucian blowing up a Confucian place of worship, Jew blowing up a Jewish place of worship, Jain blowing up a Jain place of worship, Parsi blowing up a Parsi place of worship, Sikh blowing up a Sikh place of worship, Shinto blowing up a Shinto place of worship or Taoist blowing up a Taoist place of worship, I have been compelled to conclude that this deviant behaviour is a uniquely Mohammadden practise:

Deadly blasts hit Yemen mosque at start of Muslim holiday

Besides the above mentioned attack, there have been at least 3 other Green on Green Intra-Mohammadden religious motivated attacks of Mosques this month alone.

Yemen Mosque Attack September 02 in which 28 were killed:

IS claims deadly bomb attacks on Yemen Shia mosque

Air Force Base Mosque attack of September 18 in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan which killed 17:

Taliban kill 17 in mosque at Pakistani airbase

Maiduguri, Nigeria Mosque attack of September 20:

B’Haram killed 54 in Maiduguri mosque attacks – Police

Not Really, if you through these you would believe that Hindus are Tyrant cowards and Hinduism is Mumbo Jumbo, while Muslims are always Honest and victims, brave and most Humane. I.e all Hindu Babas are corrupt rapists while Muslims have never committed any atrocity. Generally Hinduism is equated with Dowry, Sati and Deva Dasi with caste oppression with Muslim being made from milk and honey.

Like the Title of an upcoming movie glorifying a criminal " Bania ka dhimag and Bhai ka daring".

Thanks, given that I am not given to watching Bollywood movies it would have been unlikely that I would have picked up what you said.

Anyways on the basis of what you said, I did an internet search and came with an echo of what you said namely that “Muslims in films were shown as strongly religious and honest (even when they are shown in the film as engaged in crime)” and that “Pakistanis were projected as welcoming, courteous, open-minded and courageous.”. That is in apparent contrast to portrayals of Hindu’s barring Kshtriya’s and other religious groups such as Christians and Sikh’s which stresses the negative.

With the above and the Love Jihad, Khan Centrism etc. bit as well which I will continue to hold onto :wink: , I get a clearler picture of the contours of the Mohammaddenisation of Bollywood.

Excerpt from the article mentioned above that was harvested on Google:

My research team and I examined randomly selected 50 films from the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s and 2000s and 2010s. We developed a list of movies in those decades and selected two to three movies per letter to finalise a list of 50 films per decade.

We noted the significant presence of stereotypicality in these films with respect to religion and caste: In nearly 78% of the movies promiscuous women had a Christian name; 58% of the corrupt politicians in films had a Hindu brahmin last name; and, 62% of the corrupt businessman in films had a vaishya last name.

Eighty-four of the Muslims in films were shown as strongly religious and honest (even when they are shown in the film as engaged in crime) and 88% of the films presented kshatriya last-name individuals to be courageous. Nearly, 74% of the films presented Sikhs as laughable.

In addition, we examined 20 Bollywood movies that had Pakistan as the setting. In 18 of those films, Pakistanis were projected as welcoming, courteous, open-minded and courageous.


Link to Google harvested article by an IIM A Prof named Dheeraj Sharma:

Stereotypicality in Indian cinema is not a healthy trend

http://www.thehindu.com/news/international/militant-group-ansarullah-bangla-team-publishes-hit-list/article7682104.ece?utm_source=MostPopular&utm_medium=International&utm_campaign=WidgetPromo

The Ansarullah Bangla Team (ATB), a militant group which has been blamed for a series of murders of secular writers in Bangladesh, has published a hit list of bloggers and activists around the world, threatening to kill them.

The list, issued in a statement on the Internet, includes mostly expatriate Bangladeshis— nine from the U.K., seven in Germany, two in the U.S., one in Canada and one in Sweden.

The ABT has published the list after several of its leaders and activists were arrested by the Bangladesh police, including the outfit’s acting chief Muhammad Abul Bashar, in connection with the murder of bloggers.

“Cancel the Bangladeshi citizenship of enemies of Islam and [Muslim religious] education, atheists, apostates, unbelievers, anti-Islamic ... bloggers, agents of India ... otherwise they will be killed wherever they can be found in the Almighty’s world,” the ABT said in the statement.


British newspaper The Guardian reported that the U.K.-based bloggers of Bangladeshi origins named on the list have approached the police in London and elsewhere following its publication.

A number of bloggers said they have reasons to be alarmed with the new list, but added that threats would not stop them from writing. The ABT leader, Bashar and his two associates were arrested earlier this month in Dhaka for their alleged involvement in the killing of Bangladeshi-American secular blogger and science writer Avijit Roy.

The police have recently charged several ABT operatives and organisers for the murder of a 27-year-old blogger, Washiqur Rahman, in March this year in Dhaka. Rahman’s death came just weeks after Avijit Roy was murdered in the capital city in February. Roy’s U.S.-based widow, also a blogger, who narrowly escaped the brutal attack on her husband, is among those named on the new list.

The British media said the exact origin of the list is unclear, while some have doubted if it is an official statement from the ABT in Bangladesh. Bangladesh police believe the ABT is close to the Ansar ul-Islam, which is part of al-Qaida in south Asia. Al-Qaida had earlier praised violent operations by the ABT and hailed activists charged with the murder of bloggers as “lions of the international community”.

Secular bloggers and writers in Bangladesh have become targets of extremists elements since 2004 when a respected Dhaka University professor, Humayun Azad, was brutally attacked. He later died.

In February 2013, ABT activists hacked to death Ahmed Rajib Haider, another secular blogger who was an organiser of ‘Shahbagh youth protest’, demanding maximum penalty for the 1971 war criminals.

In May this year, Ananta Bijoy Das was hacked to death by assailants in the northeast Sylhet. The latest victim is Niloy Neel, who was murdered in Dhaka. Another blogger The Bangladesh government has recently urged the bloggers to maintain “a limit” in their writings so that religious sentiments of the people are not affected.

Meanwhile Reuters reports that at least one of the Mohammadden Terrorists was dressed in a Burka aka Burqua highlighting yet again that Mohammadden religion mandated dress for women like the burqa are a grave security hazard as they obscure facial identity and being loose fitting permit concealment of bombs and weapons on person making t is from a safety standpoint to ban wearing of this garment in public:

BR jana,

You have to read it to believe it.

Teenager almost died after eating at filthy [Paki] takeaway where 140 customers were infected with food bug

A court heard staff at the Khyber Pass in Nottingham passed on a rare strain of E.Coli when they didn't wash their hands properly after going to the toilet.

A teenage girl almost died and more than 140 others were taken severely ill after contracting a E.coli in a filthy takeaway where staff did not wash their hands after going to the toilet.

142 customers who ate at the Khyber Pass in Hyson Green, Nottingham, suffered with nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea after the outbreak last June, and a 13-year-old girl was left so ill that she spent four nights in hospital.

Had her infection not been treated, it could have been fatal, medics said.

Amjad Bhatti and Mohammed Basit, owners of the Khyber Pass, in Gregory Boulevard, pleaded guilty to seven food hygiene offences and were sentenced today at Nottingham Crown Court.
Prosecuting, Bernard Thorogood said this was only the second recorded case of that particular strain of E.coli in Europe.
He said: "Its only known reservoir is the human gut.
"You realise the way it was transmitted was by use of incorrect hand washing after using the lavatory to defecate.
"A cough can't do it, a handshake could if it's an infected hand which means it was not washed after using the lavatory."


He added that nine of the 12 members of staff who handle food at the takeaway were found to have traces of the bacteria, and one of the defendant's daughters fell ill.

Mitigating, Robert Egbuna said lessons had been learnt and improvements made at the takeaway.
He said: "It is not just a case of adding hand basins. There have been significant changes that have come about from the real shock of what has happened."
Bhatti and Basit were both given four months prison suspended for a year, as well as being ordered to do 250 hours of unpaid work each.

His Honour Judge Jeremy Lea also said each of the victims should be paid £200 compensation by the defendants as well as paying costs of £25,752.36.
He said: "If you make money by supplying cooked food to members of the public, you owe a real duty of care to ensure that people will not be made unwell by your disregard for food safety and hygiene regulations. This is not simply red tape that you have failed to comply with."

The judge said he was "not blind to the consequences" which included adding burdens to the NHS, employers who had to cover for sick employees and parents and children who fell ill.
"One or two individuals indicate they have never felt so ill and thought they were going to die," he said.
"Some of them were made so unwell they had to go to hospital and one 13-year-old was so unwell the medical evidence was clear that notwithstanding medical treatment, she may well have died."

Regards,
Virendra

Predictably given the well-established animus, Intra Mohammadden religion based Shia versus Sunni sectarian differences finds echo with regard to the stampede in Saudi Arabia that killed 717 Mohammadden pilgrims (Clicky) with Shia Majority Iran taking a potshot at Saudi Arabia via Ayatollah Ali Khamenei while Saudi Arabia scrambles for shelter by deflecting the blame via Prince Khaled al-Faisal, the head of the Saudi Arabia’s central Hajj committee onto “African Nationalities” opening itself to charges of Racism.

Ben Carson: By keeping out Islam, we protect women

Is there a 'war on women'? Yes – but not in the US, the Republican candidate told supporters, promising that immigrants are 'welcome to come to America, but they don't get to change who we are.'

Quote:

Carson was immediately criticized by figures from Hillary Clinton to the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which called for him to exit the presidential race.

Others, however, defended Carson, from “Fox & Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade to Indian-American journalist Asra Nomani, who penned an opinion piece called “To This Secular Muslim, Ben Carson Had A Point” for the Daily Beast. No matter where Muslim communities are, Nomani writes, they “still struggle with existential questions about whether Islam is compatible with democracy and secularism.”

Female Genital Mutilation aka FGM is thriving in the UK according to the UK Government’s health department the National health Service aka NHS. That Mohammadden religion based practice contributes very significantly to the FGM problem in the UK will have to inferred from other sources as political correctness intervenes and religious identity of practitioners is sought to be obscured by geographic labels :wink: :

NHS reports 1,026 new cases of female genital mutilation in three months

Away from the shores of Old Blighty, Down-under seems to also be facing FGM issues brought on by adherents of Mohammaddenism per this article from about 10 days back:

In Australia, three Dawoodi Bohras face Supreme Court trial for circumcising their daughters

Meanwhile it would be moot to point out that practise of FGM is well established among the Mohammadden population of India. See link to article in the Quint dating back to April of this year:

Female Genital Mutilation: India’s Well Kept Secret

Canadian newspaper Globe and Mail reports that “In a landmark case for cultural crimes, a radical Islamist leader will face trial in The Hague for the destruction of historic tombs in the ancient city of Timbuktu.”.

ICC to try Islamist leader for destruction of Timbuktu tombs

The above is not the first act of destruction of humanity’s cultural heritage by Mohammadden groups motivated by the Mohammadden religion in the 21st Century. Prior to the incident in Mali which the ICC now intends to try ,there was the destruction of the Bamiyan Buddha’s by the Mohammadden group the Taliban in Afghanistan, the destruction of Palmyra by the Mohammadden group Islamic State in Syria and the destruction in Iraq of artefacts at the Mosul Museum, Nimrud and Khorsabad by the same Mohammadden group. By contrast I can think of no similar deliberate destruction in the 21st Century of historic cultural sites motivated by respective religion by any Non-Mohammadden group be they Buddhist, Christist, Confucian, Hindu, Jain, Jewish, Sikh, Taoist or Zoroastrian. The foregoing leads me to conclude that this barbaric practise is unique to adherents of Mohammaddenism:

After 1,700 years, Buddhas fall to Taliban dynamite

Isis’s destruction of Palmyra: ‘The heart has been ripped out of the city'

Tracking a trail of historical obliteration: ISIS trumpets destruction of Nimrud

The deliberate destruction of historic cultural monuments by Mohammadden groups for religion based reasons around the world affirms that Nobel Laureate Vidiadhar Surajprasad Naipaul was spot on when he wrote "It {Mohammaddenism} has had a calamitous effect on converted peoples. To be converted you have to destroy your past, destroy your history. You have to stamp on it, you have to say 'my ancestral culture does not exist, it doesn't matter'."

Texas man sentenced to 10 years for trying to aid al Shabaab militants

A Texas man was sentenced on Friday to 10 years in prison followed by 10 years probation on charges of attempting to provide material support and resources to foreign terrorists, U.S. prosecutors said.

Rahatul Ashikim Khan, 24, pleaded guilty in July 2014 to being part of a conspiracy that attempted to provided material to the Islamist al Shabaab group, they said.

"Khan conspired to provide material support to terrorists by screening and recruiting potential foreign fighters located in the United States to wage violent jihad in various locations overseas, including Somalia," said Assistant Attorney General Carlin.

...

Kahn was born in Bangladesh and became a U.S. citizen about 13 years ago, according to court documents. He had attended the University of Texas.

A second man, Michael Wolfe, was also arrested with Khan. Wolfe, 24, was sentenced to 82 months in prison by a U.S. district judge in June.

Wolfe planned to travel to Europe where he was scheduled to meet an FBI undercover agent who he believed would help him travel through Turkey and into Syria so he could take up arms for Islamic State.

Rape epidemic by migrants.

Separately, I know of one case where three Syrian migrants in the Netherlands over the last week raped a 6-year old Dutch girl. It's not in the English-language news yet, for some weird reason... Maybe in Dutch news.

Meanwhile, another hilarious piece:

http://www.dutchnews.nl/news/archives/2 ... -ter-apel/

In other words, many guys are turning up with underage wives. What to do only? The prevalent view currently, apparently, is that the loophole exists wherein since the marriage was conducted outside Holland in another culture where it is permitted, it should be OK to let the girls in, but "counsel" them, and have them live separately until they are 18, and then give them a choice - while the uncle waits outside to cut her throat if she says "No". These people have gone beyond delusional.

Yes brawls are common. Yesterday there was one in a Dutch camp as well it appears, where people started beating themselves up. Others are sitting around in the camp complaining that the government is not giving them money so they can go into town, etc.
