^^I wouldnt be surprised if the truck attack is actually a jehadi attack. There were reports that german police were under pressure not to call islamic terror cases as such, because of the gambit of Angela merkel to allow refugees in the country

X Posted from the Terroristan thread.

Article in Geo that Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar of Supreme Court of the Mohammadden Terrorism Fomenting Islamic Republic of Pakistan has ordered Police to arrest a 70 year old man for marrying a pre teen 10 year old girl child.:

CJP orders police to arrest 70-year-old who reportedly married minor girl in Balochistan

In the Mohammadden Terrorism Fomenting Islamic Republic of Pakistan which claims for itself status as an IEDological Muslim State and Islamic Republic with a Constitutional obligation to have no Law that is repugnant to the injunctions of Mohammaddenism, would not ordering arrest of 70 year old groom by Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar for piously emulating the practises of the founder of Mohammaddenism per Mohammadden text of Hadith number 69 of book number 67 of Sahih al-Bukhari, constitute a haram act on the part of the CJP and Police and call for Jihad, Bull Cutletting aka Wajib ul Qatal or some such belief motivated wanton act of violence :?:

The cited Shahih al-Bukhari hadith says that the founder of the Mohammadden belief who when around 51/52 years old married a girl child aged 6 and consummated marriage when the girl child turned 9 and he was around 54/55 years old. Refer link to hadith of Shahi Bukhari and text therefrom posted below.

Sahih al-Bukhari » Book of Wedlock, Marriage (Nikaah) » Hadith

Narrated `Aisha:

that the Prophet (ﷺ) married her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old, and then she remained with him for nine years (i.e., till his death).

حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ يُوسُفَ، حَدَّثَنَا سُفْيَانُ، عَنْ هِشَامٍ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، عَنْ عَائِشَةَ ـ رضى الله عنها ـ أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم تَزَوَّجَهَا وَهْىَ بِنْتُ سِتِّ سِنِينَ، وَأُدْخِلَتْ عَلَيْهِ وَهْىَ بِنْتُ تِسْعٍ، وَمَكَثَتْ عِنْدَهُ تِسْعًا‏.‏

I think that the germans are importing jehadis in great numbers because of the aging german population as well as their long standing "guest worker" program. The last time around, decades ago, they let in jehadi turks in very large numbers.

This is one policy that may well end up destroying their society.

If they had let in millions of Dharmics they would not have this problem.

There are immigrants and then there are gimmegrants.
There are brown people and then there are brown people.

Bitcoin Deemed " Halaal" :D

Research Paper Declares Bitcoin Compliant With Shariah Law
Jamie Redman

Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies are intriguing because they are very different from the traditional financial systems we use today. One particular subject people have pondered is whether or not bitcoin complies with the religious law that forms a part of Islamic tradition — otherwise known as Shariah Law. This week a microfinance firm based in Indonesia, Blossom Finance, published a 22-page working paper that concludes that “bitcoin qualifies as Islamic money, except where it is banned by a local government.” Has a " first class halaal Certificate" been issued from Saudia, instead of the third class issued from Indonesia :mrgreen:
Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies have come into question over the years concerning whether or not they comply with Islamic banking. Just recently this past December a Muslim cleric declared that owning bitcoin was compatible with Islamic finance. However other clerics have disagreed with this opinion and Egypt’s top Islamic cleric had issued a fatawa (religious edict) against bitcoin. Egypt Fatwa more valuable than Indonesian Fatwa :roll:
his week news.Bitcoin.com spoke with Matthew J. Martin, the founder of the startup Blossom Finance that uses cryptocurrency to help Muslims with Islamic financial law. Martin and Blossom’s internal Shariah advisor and Shariah compliance officer, Mufti Muhammad Abu Bakar, published a study that concludes bitcoin does qualify as Islamic money, unless a local government forbids the use of digital currencies. The research explains an in-depth analysis of the various legal opinions (fatawah) on the subject of Islamic banking and bitcoin.
Martin explains that even though cryptocurrency interest continues to grow there is a lot of confusion among Muslims who make up close to a quarter of the world’s population. Many individuals have asked Martin if bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies comply with the set of rules followed by Muslims in accordance with the guidelines of the Quran.
“Contrary to popular myth, Shariah law is not a single set of rules; it’s is a scholarly field subject to differing interpretations and opinions on various matters,” explains the CEO of Blossom Finance. “Several recent fatawah issued by prominent Muslim scholars offered incomplete or contradictory opinions on the topic. With all the confusion out there, we wanted to offer clear guidance supported by solid research that benefits both laypeople and practitioners of Islamic finance.”
The 22-page working paper which discusses the subject of bitcoin and Islamic finance compatibility in great detail can be found here.

This is the pic of Mathew Martin, author of the Research Paper on Bitcoin showing off the mandatory Sharia Compliant Beard. But not sure if he himself is "Halaal" or not due to his UnIslamic nomenclature :twisted:

Taliban/ Saudi Style "Friday Sports" Comes To Bander Aceh , Indonesia :D

Couple and alleged sex workers publicly whipped in this Islamic country
April 20, 2018

*Aceh, Indonesia : *A group of amorous couples and alleged sex workers were publicly whipped for breaking Islamic law in Indonesia 's Aceh Friday, just a week after the province pledged to move the widely condemned practice indoors.More than a thousand people, including dozens of tourists from neighbouring Malaysia, jeered and screamed abuse at the group as they were flogged outside a mosque in the capital Banda Aceh. Note : Bander Aceh port which is located on Sumatra Island is nominally part of Indonesia . Strict Sharia rules here ! As opposed to the other Island Of Java (where the capital is located ) where there is a benign sort of Sharia due to past Hindu influences !
Thousands of people hurled abuses and jeered at the group being flogged (AFP). The three men and five women -- who included several college students -- were found guilty of violating religious law by either showing affection in public or for offering sexual services online, officials said. Friday evening recreation for the "faithfools". Plus tourist attraction for the non-momeens to be recorded on cell phones for posterity !
Aceh is the only province in the world's most populous Muslim-majority country that imposes Islamic law and flogging is a common punishment for a range of offences -- from gambling, to drinking alcohol to having gay sex or relations outside of marriage.The conservative region on the northern tip of Sumatra island passed a regulation a week ago that would see criminals whipped only behind prison walls. It was not clear when the new rule would come into effect. :(( Malsi entered Indonesia and Malaya also through Sumatra via Arab and Indian Traders !
Rights groups have derided it as cruel and last year President Joko Widodo called for an end to public whippings in Aceh.Around 98 per cent of the province's five million residents are Muslims, subject to religious law, including the public whippings which came into practice around 2005.The new rule has generated protests from conservative groups who see public whippings as having a strong deterrent effect on crime. The Saudi and Wahabi influence ! Banda Aceh's deputy mayor Zainal Arifin said Friday's flogging was not an act of defiance against the new rules. "We understand that the regulation has not yet come into effect and the prison is not yet ready to (host floggings) so that is why we are still doing it" in public, he said.

"Muslim Appeasement" In Germany Gone Too Far :roll:

Muslims beat up German boy for eating pork

After German daily newspaper “The Tagesspiegel” asked their readers to tell about incidents of school violence and bullying, they received a lot of replies.“Our son is in fourth grade at a middle school and has been bullied since the first year. He was abused, beaten and kicked because he is German. Classmates call him ‘German pig’, ‘pig’ and ‘German potato’. At his school are mainly children with a migrant background. Most are Muslims,” one family says. Not sure, why they are going out of their way to accommodate their "so-called religious sentiments" . Someone should demand that the Saudi Crown Prince allows churches and temples in Saudia , along with the opening of cinemas :twisted:

X Posted from the Oppression of Minorities In Pakistan thread to the Terroristan and Islamism threads.

Green on Green Intra Mohammadden belief based sectarian violence in the Mohammadden Terrorism Fomenting Islamic Republic of Pakistan sees members of the minority Shia aka Shiite sect of Mohammaddenism get gunned down by their fellow Mohammadden co-religionists of the Sunni sect.

The Shia Genocide in the Mohammadden Terrorism Fomenting Islamic Republic of Pakistan inexorably rolls on:

Gunmen kill 2 Shiites in Pakistan

Originally published April 22, 2018 at 5:07 am

By The Associated Press

QUETTA, Pakistan (AP) — Police in Pakistan say gunmen have killed two Shiites and wounded a third in Quetta, the latest in a recent series of attacks on the religious minority.

Police chief Abdur Razzaq Cheema said both men were local officials in Shiite community organizations.

Cheema said the attackers fled the scene on motorcycles after Sunday’s shooting and that a search is underway.

It was the fifth attack in recent months targeting Shiites in Quetta. Last week, a Shiite shopkeeper was killed in a drive-by shooting.

No one has claimed the attacks, but they bore the hallmarks of Sunni Muslim extremists, who view Shiites as apostates.

No arrests have been made.

Philippine Ambassador Wanted To Preserve The Dignity Of Philippina Maids Working As Domestics In Kuwaiti Homes From Being Abused ( sexually and otherwise !) By Kuwaiti Male Employers . Now The Arrogant Kuwaitis Have Declared Him Personal Non Grata :twisted:



Kuwait orders Philippine ambassador to leave in one week: KUNA

KUWAIT CITY: The Kuwaiti Foreign Ministry announced on Wednesday that it had notified the Philippine Ambassador to Kuwait Renato Villa to leave Kuwait in a week, the Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) said.The ministry, which called the ambassador “persona non-grata” in Kuwait, said its action against the top Filipino envoy was in retaliation for undiplomatic acts by Philippine embassy staff who encouraged Filipino domestic workers to flee employers’ households, KUNA said.
It is the job of any consulate to "protect their citizens from abuse" in the host country . So, IMO, the Ambassador was just doing his job !
Renato Villa on Tuesday issued an apology to Kuwait for the controversial “rescue” of Filipino household service workers from their employers’ homes which the Kuwaiti government viewed as a violation of its sovereignty. The Kuwaitis like their Saudi Wahabi cousins are a bunch of vile SOB's when it comes to treating foreign female domestics from India, Sri Lanka Philippines and other non -malsic countries with dignity and honour . :twisted:
Kuwait has protested over the “rescue” of Philippine citizens working as domestic helpers, and summoned the Philippine ambassador for an explanation.
The Philippines is one of the primary sources of domestic workers abroad, including the Middle East like Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.
The Philippine Department of Foreign Affairs said there are about 250,000 Filipinos working in Kuwait, most as domestic helpers.

NA passes resolution to rename QAU's Abdus Salam Centre to al-Khazini Department

The National Assembly on Thursday passed a resolution to change the name of the National Centre for Physics at the Quaid-i-Azam University (QAU) from the Professor Abdus Salam Centre for Physics to al-Khazini Department, after Byzantine-origin astronomer Abu al-Fath Abd al-Rahman Mansur al-Khazini.
The resolution was tabled by PML-N lawmaker Captain Muhammad Safdar, who is former prime minister Nawaz Sharif's son-in-law and aspiring PML-N leader Maryam Nawaz's husband.Nuclear physicist Abdus Salam hailed from the Ahmadi community, whose members constitute a minority in Pakistan. Its members have faced persecution and were declared non-Muslims through a constitutional amendment in 1974. Not sure if this "gimmick" will help him secure his seat in the coming election :roll:
The physics centre had been named after Abdus Salam in December 2016 following the approval of then prime minister Nawaz Sharif, who had also approved a grant for five annual fellowships for Pakistani PhD students. The fellowship programme was called the Professor Abdus Salam Fellowship. It is unclear whether its renaming is also on the PML-N's agenda. Maybe, this will prompt him to tighten the screws further in the coffin of the "poor" Ahmedis - who by the way were in the forefront for the struggle for Pakistan before 1947 . Wonder if Safdar and the Mullahs are aware of this fact :mrgreen:


Some will recollect that the Mohammadden Terrorism Fomenting Islamic Republic of Pakistan on a projecting soft image public relations exercise to gull Kaafir Dhimmi Non Mohammaddens last year (Jan 2017) by the then Nawaz Sharif administration changed the name of the Islamic Republic’s National Centre of Physics to that of Noble Laureate Abdus Salaam who belonged to the much oppressed minority Ahmadi aka Ahmadiyya sect of Mohammaddenism.

The Mohammadden Terrorism Fomenting Islamic Republic of Pakistan seems to have now concluded that a projecting soft image public relations exercise to gull Kaafir Dhimmi Non Mohammaddens by renaming Physics Centres after a member of the oppressed minority Ahamadi aka Ahamidiyya sect of Mohammaddenism is not required. Either that or a move to stave of the possibility of being Qadrified by reversing the Bull Cutleting aka Wajib Ul Qatl prospects. Accordingly Nawaz Sharif’s son-in-law Captain Safdar aka Capt. Muhammad Safdar Awan (Retd) has proposed renaming the Abdus Salam Center for Physics to the pure, pious and even more halal name from a Sunni Mohammadden perspective, to that of Abu al Fatah Abdul Rahman Al-Khazini Centre of Physics :rotfl: .

Meanwhile back here at home in India, it is revealed that the portrait of the Mohammad Ali Jinnah, the Mohammadden supremacist bigot who tore India asunder and spawned a nation that has attempted to harm India for some 70 years, is being displayed at the Student Union hall of Aligarh Muslim University. (Jinnah portrait row: Situation at AMU 'under control'). Naturally I expect that the pseudo-seculars will show solidarity with the {likely} Mohammadden dominated Student Union of Aligarh Muslim University and do an equal=equal while bemoaning :wink:
imposition of a rigid, monolithic and majoritarian view of nationalism etc.


National Centre for Physics renamed as 'Abdus Salam Center for Physics'[/url]
Web Desk
January 3, 2017

ISLAMABAD: President Mamnoon Hussain on Tuesday approved a summary forwarded by the government to rename National Physics Centre in Quaid-e-Azam University as Prof Abdus Salam Centre for Physics, according to reports.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif gave his approval to rename the center after Dr Salam, the first Pakistani and the first Muslim to be awarded the Nobel Prize in sciences.

Last month, the Prime Minister directed the Ministry of Education to send the summary seeking to change the name of the National Physics Centre to Dr. Abdus Salam Centre for Physics, for approval to the President of Pakistan.

The Prime Minister made the decision keeping in mind Dr Abdus Salam's achievements in the field of Physics. In 1979, Dr Abdus Salam won the Nobel Prize in Physics for Pakistan.

Minor Girl Killed In Mumbai, Allegedly By Relatives For Not Offering Namaz

A minor girl in Mumbai’s Antop Hill area was murdered, allegedly by her relatives for not offering namaz during Friday prayers. Three women, including a minor, have been arrested by the police in connection with the murder. The girl had been asked by her family members to compulsorily offer namaz every Friday. But when the girl disobeyed them again last Friday, her aunt strangled her with a dupatta in a fit of anger, police said
o cover up the crime, the relatives had told doctors that the girl died after slipping in the bathroom. The doctors at Sion Hospital, however, did not buy their claims and informed the local police as they found some marks on the neck of the victim. The same "tactics/ excuses " are used to cover up the horrible crime of "honour killing" as well !
After the relatives were interrogated, the girl’s aunts confessed, police said.

Senior Police Inspector of Antop Hill Sudarshan Paithankar told NDTV, “On Friday when she did not offer namaz, her relatives got angry and committed the crime. Three have been arrested and all are her relatives.” The girl’s father barely makes ends meet and due to her mother’s early death she used to stay with relatives as he is away at work and there is no one to look after her. The father is in a state of shock after hearing the news and regrets leaving her in the care of her relatives.Visibly shaken, he told NDTV, “Why did they murder her? I am her father. If she was not offering namaz they could have complained to me. These people don’t listen to any one.”

Fatwa Issued By Darool Ulum !

Installing CCTV cameras ‘un-Islamic’: Darul Uloom

MUZAFFARNAGAR: In another controversial edict, Darul Uloom Deoband said that it is un-Islamic to install CCTV cameras.
In response to a query made by a Maharashtra-based Muslim if it was okay to install CCTV cameras in a shop or a place where there is movement of a lot of people, a three-cleric panel of the fatwa department of the world-renowned Islamic seminary, said, “There are many other ways to ensure safety of a commercial establishment or a home. In Shariat, it is un-Islamic to shoot a picture. Consequently, even the CCTV is un-Islamic.” Has a copy of this Fatwa been sent to the Govts Of Pakistan, Iran and Saudi Arabia :twisted:
The edict came in response to a question asked by Abdulla Majid, a businessman from Maharashtra.
Several controversial fatwas have been issued by the Deoband ulemas in 2018. Earlier, one fatwa issued by them stated that women wearing designer and body-hugging burqa is ‘haraam’ and not allowed in Islam at all. A bench of muftis had after religious celebrations issued a fatwa on the issue stating, ‘Veil and burqa are supposed to protect a woman from prying eyes. So, a woman wearing a designer burqa or body-hugging outfit is strictly not allowed in Islam
In yet another development, Deoband ulemas had criticised 15-year-old Alia Khan of Meerut for reciting Bhagwad Gita slokas at a contest organised by the state government in Lucknow. She won a prize at the contest.

Suicide bombers, comprising of 6 members of a single family with young children in tow and belonging to Mohammadden belief motivated group, Islamic State, attack 3 places of worship used by fellow Abrahamic People of the Book aka Ahl al-Kitab in Surabaya in Indonesia killing at least 7.

Suicide bombers who carried out deadly attacks on three churches in Indonesia’s second-largest city on Sunday were a family of six that included two young children, police said.

At least 13 people, including all six family members, died in the attacks in Surabaya and at least 41 were injured, according to police, in acts that Indonesia’s president condemned as “barbaric”. …………….

National police chief Tito Karnavian said the father exploded a car bomb, the two sons aged 18 and 16 used a motorcycle for their attack, and the mother was with daughters aged 12 and 9 for her attack.

Karnavian said the family had been to Syria, where until recently Islamic State controlled significant territory.

The extremist group claimed responsibility for Sunday’s attacks in a statement carried by its Aamaq news agency.

The first attack struck the Santa Maria Roman Catholic Church in Surabaya, police spokesman Frans Barung Mangera told reporters at the scene. That blast was followed by a second explosion minutes later at the Christian Church of Diponegoro and a third at the city’s Pantekosta Church, she said. …………………….

In the Kerala’s Mohammadden majority Malappuram district, Mercedes Benz driving Mohammadden businessman Kankunnathu Moideenkutty is reportedly caught on CCTV camera groping a 10 year child who was allegedly brought specifically for the purpose of paedophile sexual activity by the childs mother to a cinema theatre. Mohideen seems to have been extracting the maximum out of the situation and flogging it for all its worth as the Police also have indicated that “child’s mother has been in a relationship with Moideenkutty for quite some time”.

Edappal theatre child molestation case: accused have confessed, say police

Manorama also reports that Police “are facing criticism from various quarters for failing to register a case even after a complaint had”. That delay may or may not have something or nothing to do with help of fellow Mohammadden Local Affairs Minister in Kerala’s Communist Party of India (Marxist) {CPI(M)} controlled Government, K.T. Jaleel, regards which TOI reports that “Local affairs minister K T Jaleel, meanwhile, denied reports that he had intervened to delay Moideen Kutty’s arrest.”:

A month back Malappuram district saw violent demonstrations in support of the child victim of the disgusting Jammu & Kashmir Kathua rape murder case. It will be interesting to see if an event such as the caught on CCTV theatre groping of a 10 year old girl right in Malappuram will generate anything like the same degree of passion caused by events in more distant Jammu & Kashmir or instead would be veiled with a burqua aka burka owing to the belief the alleged perpetrator subscribes to :

Hartal call for Kathua rape and murder has big impact in Malappuram

Green on Green Intra Mohammadden belief based sectarian violence results in halal style throat slitting of Shia Mohammadden Imam by Sunni Mohammadden “ISIS (Islamic State) Copy Cats” in South Africa’s KwaZulu Natal:

Shia hate 'led to #MosqueAttack
'
NEWS / 13 MAY 2018, 2:00PM / TRIBUNE REPORTERS …………………

The bloody attack on the Shia Imam Hussain mosque in Verulam, north of Durban, on Thursday came in the wake of hate speech against the Shia community that has continued for years, and escalated to unparalleled levels recently.

The attack in which an imam had his throat slit and two others were stabbed repeatedly was allegedly the work of men who had been surveying the mosque with the intention of killing its religious leaders.

“The attackers were inspired by hate and were Isis (Islamic State) copycats,” chairperson of the mosque, Azad Seedat, told the Sunday Tribune. “The attackers had come to the mosque on three occasions when it was quiet, prayed, and taken literature and books.

“They planned the attack, petrol-bombing not only the mosque’s library but a room containing scaled-down models of shrines to our imams,” Seedat said. “The attacks had all the hallmarks of Takfirism (declaring other Muslim heretics) as the slitting of throats is how Takfiris execute their victims.” ………………………..

The mosque’s prayer leader, Ali Nchinyane, has said publicly that the attackers had a religious motive. “It was a terrorist attack. These people were not robbers, they didn’t want phones, laptops, money or clothes. They strictly wanted to kill us. One attacker who entered under the guise of being a worshipper said to me: ‘You are brainwashing people; I will kill you’.” ……………………….

Having sown the seed of Mohammadden Terrorism by injudiciously allowing immigration of Mohammaddens, France inevitably though regrettably brings upon herself the whirlwind of Allahu Akbaring acts of Mohammadden Terrorism!

One killed in Paris knife attack by man shouting 'Allahu akbar'

Subsequent article identifies the Allah Akbaring knife attacker as a Mohammadden Chenchen origin immigrant by name of Khamzat Azimov:

Using the Mohammadden belief based slogan of Allah Hu Akbar while carrying out violent attacks seems to be becoming quite commonplace and geographically widespread notwithstanding many politically prominent leaders of Mohammadden majority countries piously insisting that Mohammaddenism is the belief of Peace. Besides the present attack in the France, weblinks for some of the other Allahuakbaring attacks which have taken place in the US, Turkey, Australia, Bangladesh, Belgium and Germany, follow.

All mosques in the country should raise the national flag and study socialist core values to strengthen their "concept of nation" and carry forward "the spirit of patriotism," the China Islamic Association declared.

Chinese experts hailed the initiative for seeking to assimilate religion into a socialist society and as progress for religious development.

In a letter published on its website on Saturday, the association urged nationwide Islamic associations and mosques to raise national flags all the time and in prominent positions.

Associations and mosques should also study the Chinese Constitution, socialist core values and traditional classical Chinese culture, the letter said.

The legal study classes should be offered so that Muslims can conduct religious activities in accordance with the law and correctly understand its relationship with religious doctrine.

Mosques are encouraged to hold public welfare and community service activities to integrate socialist core values into Muslim life, the association posted. Mosques should teach classes on classical Chinese, history and geography.

The initiative, if carried out smoothly, could sinicize the religion by integrating religious doctrines into Chinese culture, Xiong Kunxin, an ethnic studies expert and a professor at Tibet University in Lhasa, told the Global Times on Sunday.

No Arab Style Mosques Allowed. No Calls To Prayer Allowed. Chinese Govt Attempts to Sinicise Malsi :D

How China is trying to impose Islam with Chinese characteristics in the Hui Muslim heartland

Every Friday, the Nanguan Grand Mosque springs to life as local Hui Muslims from Yinchuan, capital of their official heartland, gather for the most important prayer of the week.
Just after midday, men in white prayer caps file into the mosque and disappear behind a gate adorned with gold Islamic motifs and three green domes, each topped with a silver crescent moon that gleams in the sun. It was one of the country’s first Middle Eastern-style mosques, built in 1981 to replace a Chinese one that fell victim to the Cultural Revolution – a decade of mayhem from 1966 that saw thousands of temples, churches, mosques and monasteries defaced or destroyed across the country. At that time, the world did not face the "Muslim problem" .
But now, its onion-shaped domes, elaborate motifs and Arabic script could be next in the cross hairs of a government campaign to rid the northwestern Ningxia Hui autonomous region of what it sees as a worrying trend of Islamisation and Arabisation, as the ruling Communist Party tries to “Sinicise religion”. Whether they succeed or not, is another story .
Throughout Ningxia, Islamic decor and Arabic signs are being taken off the streets. They only went up a decade ago, when the authorities were highlighting the Hui ethnic minority culture to lure tourists. Driving south from Yinchuan along the dusty plains of the Yellow River, the roadside is now littered with onion domes – green, gold and white – freshly removed from market buildings, hotels and parks. Secular buildings were the first target, but the government has also banned new “Arab style” mosques, and there are plans to convert some of the existing ones to look like Chinese temples.
“The whole thing started towards the end of last year ... It’s making everyone here apprehensive,” said a female staff member at the Nanguan mosque, who watched in dismay as the dome-shaped features of her home were smashed to pieces by the authorities a few months ago.
Not everyone wants to go back to Chinese-style mosques – for some, the onion domes and crescent moons represent the roots of Islam, a distant land where the religion began.“It is not only that the Arab-style mosques have a long, long history – they are also a symbol of Islam for us Muslims,” said Li Jie, a 23-year-old Hui at the Beiguan mosque in Yinchuan.
Analysts said the forced removal of domes from mosques could lead to a huge backlash like the one seen in Beijing’s campaign to remove crosses from Christian churches in Zhejiang province in 2014, which drew global condemnation. That came after hundreds of Hui clashed with police in 2012 as they tried to stop their mosque from being demolished in Tongxin county after it was declared illegal. Several of the protesters were reportedly killed in the violence and dozens were injured.
With the holy fasting month of Ramadan starting on Tuesday, there is a sense of foreboding hanging over Ningxia. For now, the Hui in Yinchuan will be greeted by green domes and towering minarets when they arrive at Nanguan mosque – the first in China to open to tourists after it was rebuilt, and now a top attraction for visitors to the city. “This was taken during Ramadan five years ago,” a woman working in the mosque’s exhibition room said, pointing to a framed photograph of a sea of white prayer caps, as hundreds of Hui spill out of the courtyard and onto the street outside. “But who knows what Ramadan will be like in the future?”
Sinicize or die that is the message !

Official Spokesperson, Shri Raveesh Kumar: We have seen the press reports about these graves, we have also looked at the statements which were issued by the State Councilor’s office. I can say that we condemn terrorism in all forms. We emphasize that there is no justification to any act of terrorism whatsoever which targets civilians in this conflict. WE do hope that the authorities will be able to bring to justice the perpetrators of the crime. WE hope that the families of the victims will be extended all possible assistance so as to instill a sense of security and return of normalcy.

I am aware that the government of Myanmar have extended an invitation to the diplomatic core to visit the effected region. I am aware of the some of the media personalities from India being part of that. I am not sure about the participation from our side and at what level, whether our mission is participating or not but I can get back to you.

Transcript (uncorrected) of Weekly Media Briefing by Official Spokesperson (September 29, 2017)


Better late than never. Amnesty International finally confirms what the world has known for some time, namely that illegal Bangladesh origin Mohammadden migrants in Myanmar have undertaken a massacre of Hindu’s in Myanmar’s Rakhine State.

Amnesty International reports that based on dozens of interviews conducted there and across the border in Bangladesh, as well as photographic evidence analyzed by forensic pathologists, Amnesty has determined that the Mohammadden belief based group made up of Bangladesh origin Mohammadden migrants in Myanmar, the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA, is responsible for at least one, and potentially a second, massacre of up to 99 Hindu women, men, and children as well as additional unlawful killings and abductions of Hindu villagers in August 2017.

Looking forward to our Supreme Court recognising the Constitutional boundaries of their power and refraining from straying into the realms of the executive by recognising that it is the Governments sole prerogative to ignore the principle of Non-Refoulement when applied to illegal Bangladesh origin Mohammadden migrants in Myanmar who have sneaked into India especially when India is not treaty bound to follow the principle.

Myanmar: New evidence reveals Rohingya armed group massacred scores in Rakhine State



Excerpt:

A Rohingya armed group brandishing guns and swords is responsible for at least one, and potentially a second, massacre of up to 99 Hindu women, men, and children as well as additional unlawful killings and abductions of Hindu villagers in August 2017, Amnesty International revealed today after carrying out a detailed investigation inside Myanmar’s Rakhine State.

Based on dozens of interviews conducted there and across the border in Bangladesh, as well as photographic evidence analyzed by forensic pathologists, the organization revealed how Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA) fighters sowed fear among Hindus and other ethnic communities with these brutal attacks.

“Our latest investigation on the ground sheds much-needed light on the largely under-reported human rights abuses by ARSA during northern Rakhine State’s unspeakably dark recent history,” said Tirana Hassan, Crisis Response Director at Amnesty International.

“It’s hard to ignore the sheer brutality of ARSA’s actions, which have left an indelible impression on the survivors we’ve spoken to. Accountability for these atrocities is every bit as crucial as it is for the crimes against humanity carried out by Myanmar’s security forces in northern Rakhine State.”

Massacre in Kha Maung Seik

At around 8am on 25 August 2017, ARSA attacked the Hindu community in the village of Ah Nauk Kha Maung Seik, in a cluster of villages known as Kha Maung Seik in northern Maungdaw Township. At the time of the attack, the Hindu villagers lived in close proximity to Rohingya villagers, who are predominantly Muslim. Rakhine villagers, who are predominantly Buddhist, also lived in the same area.

Armed men dressed in black and local Rohingya villagers in plain clothes rounded up dozens of Hindu women, men and children. They robbed, bound, and blindfolded them before marching them to the outskirts of the village, where they separated the men from the women and young children. A few hours later, the ARSA fighters killed 53 of the Hindus, execution-style, starting with the men.

Eight Hindu women and eight of their children were abducted and spared, after ARSA fighters forced the women to agree to “convert” to Islam. The survivors were forced to flee with the fighters to Bangladesh several days later, before being repatriated to Myanmar in October 2017 with the support of the Bangladeshi and Myanmar authorities.

Fugitive From Justice And Star Salesman Of Islam Gives Verdict On Getting Married In The Holy Month Of Ramazan :twisted:

Is it allowed to get married in Ramazan? Dr Zakir Naik answers

LAHORE – Muslims around the globe are observing the Holy Month of Ramazan with reverence, however, many of them have a query in their minds that whether it is allowed or forbidden to get married in the month of Ramazan.Famous televangelist Dr Zakir Naik has also opened up about the matter, saying it’s not Haram (forbidden).“As far as marrying in the month of Ramazan is concerned there is no text in the Quran or Sahih Hadith where it is forbidden to marry in the Holy Month,” said Dr Zakir Naik.“However, one is not to allow having sexual interaction from dawn to dusk,” Zakir added.So if someone can abstain from the sexual activity then he/she can marry without any disregard to the Islamic injunctions.
Glad that the "Learned Doctor" has at last cleared the air on this "delicate subject" ( after giving a earlier verdict on" vomit " , Whether this natural function , during the Holy Month , makes a Roza invalid or remains still valid !) , specially on the subject of "sexual intercourse " during the "Holy" Month. Haram or Halal :mrgreen:

The Netherlands: Hindu temple vandalised in notorious Muslim suburb

A Hindu temple in The Hague was vandalised overnight Tuesday. The chairman of the temple tells regional broadcaster Omroep West, that the act was intentional.
Chairman Siddarth Ramdhani, says the temple is a mess. The windows were broken by several large stones that were found inside. They were probably thrown from a fairground opposite the temple. “They had to make considerable effort, because both windows are double glazed,” Rhamdani says.He thinks the temple was ‘deliberately targeted’ because it has been vandalised during Ramadan before. “Not only during Ramadan, but also during our own religious festivities youths are harassing us,” he says.The Hindu temple is in The Hague’s notorious “Schilderswijk” area, known for being a hotbed for jihadists and ISIS sympathisers.
In 2014 a large anti-Israel and pro-ISIS demonstration took place in the area. Afterwards several radicals were arrested and sentenced by a Dutch court for being members of a criminal organisation with terrorist goals.

To my knowledge, there is no known "Hindu Ghetto" either in UK or any other parts of Europe where Indians reside. But one can imagine the ruckus- and calls for enquiry etc ASAP that would have been created, if such a Muslim Mosque had been targeted . :evil:
