Malsi Claims Credit For France World Cup Win :roll:

Football catalyst for change after seven Muslim players win World Cup for France
Express Tribune, Pakistan
July 16, 2018
...how the team had seven Muslim players in it and how the country must apply its on-field victories off the field as well.
Adil Rami, Djibril Sidibé, Benjamin Mendy, Paul Pogba , N’Golo Kanté, Nabil Fekir and Ousmane Dembélé all practice the faith.
Why bring the "religion" factor into the equation . Sports and religion should not mix . It is not like Pakistan, where a cricket player needs to change his religion to Islam ( from Hinduism or Christianity ) in order to further his sporting career. :twisted:

“Africans and Muslims delivered you a second World Cup, now deliver them justice,”

islam does not deliver justice to africans or moslems.
The only place they get justice is out of islam.

Splitting Hairs Over FGM In The Dawoodi Bohra Community :roll:

Dawoodi Bohra women's group opposes call for female circumcision ban
By Soni Mishra

July 17, 2018

The legal fight to ban female genital mutilation (FGM) has turned into a clash between voices seeking that the practice be banned and the Dawoodi Bohra community, which practices female circumcision, with the latter being represented in the Supreme Court by an organisation of women from the community.
The Dawoodi Bohra Women's Association for Religious Freedom (DBWARF), an organisation claiming to represent over 69,000 practising Dawoodi Bohra women, had last week become party to the Sunita Tiwari versus Union of India case being heard by the Supreme Court.
Lawyer Sunita Tiwari had approached the Supreme Court seeking a ban on female circumcision (FC). However, the Dawoodi Bohra women's organisation, which is represented in court by senior lawyer Abhishek Manu Singhvi, has countered Tiwari's petition, by contending that FGM does not happen in the community. There is definitely some procedure performed on the reproductive organ on these small girls, no doubt about it ! :roll:
The argument put forth by the organisation is that FC and FGM are two different procedures, and it is a misconception that FGM is prevalent in the Dawoodi Bohra community. It has stated that FC as practised by the Dawoodi Bohra community, is a completely harmless procedure, involving a nick on the prepuce of girls, and it cannot be termed mutilation.
Splitting hairs IMO !
“People have interchangeably used the two terms, which are not similar at all in practice. FC is a nick on the prepuce. It is a completely harmless process. Now, this nick cannot be compared with mutilation,” said Samina Kanchwala, secretary of DBWARF. She further said that male circumcision is far more invasive because it involves the entire foreskin being removed.“We are confident that the Supreme Court would appreciate that our religious practice is harmless and would allow us to practise our religion as guaranteed under Articles 25 and 26 of the Constitution of India,” Kanchwala said.
In this day and age, there is no room for such barbaric practices . And secondly, nothing like this is sanctioned in Malsi !
The Supreme Court, however, while hearing the matter, has stated that the bodily integrity of a woman cannot be infringed without her consent. :D A three-member bench of the Supreme Court headed by Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra is hearing the petition.
“Why should the bodily integrity of a woman be subject to some external authority? One's genitals is an extremely private affair,” said Justice D.Y. Chandrachud.The petitioner has stated in the PIL that the practice, to which young girls are subjected to, amounts to a crime under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act 2012 and the Indian Penal Code.
“The practice of Khatna is illegal and against the religious norms/customs and amounts to serious violation of child rights as well as the rights of a woman to live with freedom and dignity and also a violation of human rights, and hence, amounts to cruelty of the first order, which is a heinous crime,” states the PIL filed by Tiwari.
Just very recently, A US Judge indicted an US ( Bohri origin) Doctor for performing FMG procedure, which is illegal in USA !!

Ahead Of 2020 Summer Olympics, Japan Accomodates Malsi :mrgreen:

The Japanese Have Developed A Mosque on Wheels for Muslims

A company in Japan has built the Mobile Mosque to facilitate the Muslims who will visit the country in the 2020 Summer Olympics. The mosque on the wheels can accommodate as much as 50 worshippers at the same time.
The Japs do not want the Muslims to cry "discrimination". Japan has a wise policy of 'discouraging" immigration, specially from Islamic countries, and therefore do not have the problem - like the western countries do - of ghetto-ization, abandoned churches converted into mosques and Islamic community centres and "no go areas" , where Shariah is imposed . So, this "temporary accommodation" makes sense !
The Muslim population in Japan is between 100,000 and 200,000, quite low compared to the total population. This means that the country lacks mosques or other places for worshiping or praying.The Mobile Mosque will facilitate the Muslims attending the event by giving them a place to worship. The truck which serves as a mosque even has a water basin where the Muslims can perform ablution before praying.
Please do not "forget" the Mecca Compass, to avoid cries of "discrimination" :twisted:
A Tokyo-based company worked on the project that will ultimately serve as a mosque for Muslims. Yasuharu Inoue, the Executive Committee Chairman of the Mobile Mosque project, says:
The idea of religion in Japan can be a bit complicated. But as an open and hospitable country, we want to share the idea of omotenashi (Japanese hospitality) with Muslim people. That is why we developed the Mobile Mosque. :D

Where is the "Mecca Compass" in the pic :roll:




The 22-tonne modified truck was unveiled earlier this week and a group of Muslims prayed inside it as well. Product testing :mrgreen:

Smart after the event they will export the truck rather than keep immovable prdoperty in the form of mosques within the country. But is it sharia compliant?

Activist Tarek Fateh Does Not" Buy "The Theory Of " Mental Illness" That Is Peddled By Faisal Hussein's Family To Justify The Killing Of Two Innocent People By That Paki In The Danforth Area Of Toronto !

FATAH: Mosque sermon calls on Allah to slay non-Muslims 'one by one'
Tarek Fatah
Aug 5, 2018

The Prime Minister finally found time after his vacation to visit Toronto on the Danforth and place a bouquet of flowers at the makeshift memorial for 18-year-old Reese Fallon and 10-year-old Julianna Kozis, who died in the mass shooting July 22 by Faisal Hussain. Cannot find a more Paki name than this !)
For some reason Justin Trudeau could not condemn the actions of the Pakistani-Canadian who spread terror in our city. Instead the P.M. called for “a time of compassion” among all of us.Compassion? For whom? For the dead? The dead don’t need compassion; they need justice and the truth.
So was Trudeau calling for “compassion” towards mass murderer Faisal Hussain? Is it possible he was influenced by the spin doctoring of those promoting the theory the killer’s actions were exclusively the result of mental illness?
If so, he is not alone. Days after the shooting, I took a long stroll down the Danforth to get a feel for the tragedy that unfolded so close to home. What shocked me was the absence of any large portraits of Reese and Julianna killed by Hussain. What outraged me more was the obvious empathy for the killer as a ‘victim’ of neglect by the ‘system’.
Trudeau "needs" the support of of sharia compliant Muslims and Arab MPs and their vote bank to hang on to power !
The spin doctors had been very successful in blindfolding the community into believing that had the system treated Hussain’s supposed ‘mental illness’, the tragedy would never have occurred. More than one message at the makeshift memorials had people praying for the ‘soul of the shooter’.
Then on Sunday, a solitary protester who blamed CBC for covering up possible Islamic influences in the attack was confronted by a woman, dressed up as a niqabi wrapped in red.
She started provoking the protestor by standing in front of him and as the video of the incident showed, deliberately pushed her back into his sign. The jostling, mainly by the niqabi woman continued until she had help from her sympathizers. A man entered the fray and just threw the protester inside the Alexander Park fountain drawing loud cheers and laughter. The police arrived, but instead of laying assault charges on the attacker, dragged the victim away.
To the bleeding-heart, guilt-ridden white liberals and leftists who attacked a single protester, I would like to invite you to please pay attention to extracts of this sermon at the mosque on Thorncliffe Park that catered to the Muslim youth where Faisal Hussain lived.
O Allah! Count their number, slay them [non Muslims] one by one and make them a lesson to their likenessesOh Allah, Defeat them and make the ground shake beneath their feet, and show us in them the wonders of Your Might, for they are weak before You, O Mighty, O Powerful.O Allah! Raise the standing of Islam and the Muslims.
Most of the time , the sermons are in Arabic , addressed to Arab Muslims , if the Imam is of Arab origin. And sometimes the sermon is in Urdu ( specially in Paki ghetto areas ) to entice the Paki audience !
The Mullah’s sermon ended with the usual rhetoric about Muslims suffering around the world being a result of the conspiracy of non-Muslims.
Echoing the sentiments of the Mullahs of Pakistan - and of India as well !
We don’t know whether Hussain was exposed to these prayers. We do know apologists justify prayers like these by suggesting they should not be taken literally, which is outrageous.. There are thousands of prayers or supplications that could be used that don’t employ language that surely qualifies as hate speech, especially to susceptible minds. There needs to be among Muslims in this country a rejection of these hateful supplications.
Unlikely to happen in this day and age of political correctness !

I am trying to develop the habit of reading the Bhagavad Gita for a while before going to bed every day. A few days ago, wife had dusted the side tables and it was missing. On impulse, went to the bookshelf and picked up a copy of the Quran that somebody had passed to me during some event a while ago.

Decided to spend some time reading it. I invoked Mahadev in my heart before starting, asking to be able to read it without prejudice.

Then I started, and within five minutes I was frankly horrified. The hair stood up on my hands as I understood the political nature of the book that I was reading.

Thinking that perhaps it got better, offered some spiritual insight later on, I randomly picked out pages later.

It got worse and worse. I am sorry to say, that it is truly frightening that so many people that live in the same country as I and my family does, call this the word of god. It is a divisive, frightening, book that (as far as I can see) only seeks to gather power for it's followers. This may seem a bit much, but honestly if there was a case for banning a book, this one should be the first.

I have even downloaded an app, and am getting into it in more depth.

You don't necessarily need to read The Book, although I advise everyone who wants to know why they do what they do, to read The Source. It's ironical that you see bumper stickers around that say 'Read the Koran' but nobody does when in reality everybody should.

However, there is, IMHO a much better source for a quick wake-up call that I recommend to friends and family who want to know and are not averse to spending a few minutes doing so. Whenever a discussion comes up on why Islamists act the way they do most apologists - and this includes everyday people - believe it has nothing to do with the theology and philosophy of Islam. I usually give them my copy of this book, written by a muslim - so they cannot argue bias as a motive.

https://www.amazon.com/Islamic-Jihad-Co ... 1440118469

A free pdf download is available here:

I recommend reading the first two chapters which are horrifying enough and will not take more than 30 minutes of anybody's time. Guaranteed to change your beliefs if you are honest with yourself.

As for banning the original is concerned, it has been tried, a valiant effort by Chandmal Chopra in 1985 - read about his Calcutta Quran Petition, a free download available from several sources.

Foreign Secretary Shun Political Correctness With Reference To The Burkha :D

Boris Johnson sparks fury by saying the burqa makes women look like 'bank robbers' and 'letter boxes

oris Johnson has sparked fury after saying that women who wear burqas and niqabs look like 'bank robbers' and 'letterboxes'.The former Foreign Secretary used his weekly newspaper column to say the Muslim head veils are 'oppressive' for women.And he hit out at male oppressive regimes around the world who force their female populations to adopt them
In Rome, do as the Romans do !
But he also said he does not agree with Denmark's decision to ban the coverings, warning the move risks backfiring and fanning the flames of radicalism. :roll:
His remarks have sparked fury - with Labour MP David Lammy branding the ex cabinet minister a 'pound-shop Donald Trump' and warning he is fanning the flames of Islamophobia.Mr Johnson used his weekly Daily Telegraph column to criticise burqas - also spelt as burkas - but urged caution in the state's role in intervening to stop women wearing them.
Politicians and political parties have to worry about their "vote bank" and Boris is not exception. That is why he did not go all out to ban the "attire".
Mr Johnson wrote: 'If you tell me that the burka is oppressive, then I am with you. 'If you say that it is weird and bullying to expect women to cover their faces, then I totally agree – and I would add that I can find no scriptural authority for the practice in the Koran.
It is a "cultural thing" and not a religious requirement !
He said: 'If you go for a total ban, you play into the hands of those who want to politicise and dramatise the so-called clash of civilisations; and you fan the flames of grievance.
Mr Johnson's comments were slammed by Labour, with Naz Shah, Labour's Shadow Equalities Minister, (Paki origin and a Big Admirer Of "The Khan", who recently invited her for chai-biskoot :mrgreen: ) saying: 'Boris Johnson's latest racist insults can not be laughed off, like they often are.

India Based Mullah Preaching Hate Message Against Jews And Christians In A Toronto Mosque. Indian Authorities Should Take "Due Note" Of The Same :x

UK imam: “Allah hath forbidden friendship with Jews and Christians”
Rachel Ehrenfeld
Aug 3, 2018

Sheikh Yusuf Motala, an Indian Muslim scholar of Islam, is the founder and patron of numerous Islamic institution in UK.On August 3, 2018 Motala was a guest speaker at Masjid Dar Us Salaam (Islamic Society of Toronto) in Thorncliffe, Toronto .
In his book “Ita’at-Ur-Rasul – Obedience to the Messenger”, Sheikh Yusuf Motala wrote the following (P. 145-6):
his Has Also Been the Habit of the Jews and Christians

Similarly, scoffing at and ridiculing religion and things religious has also been the habit of the Jews and Christians who received the Scripture before. As such, Allah Most High says: -“O ye who believe! Choose not for friends such of those who received the Scripture before you, and of the disbelievers, as make a jest and sport of your religion. But keep your duty to Allah if ye are true believers. And when ye call to prayer they take it for a jest and sport. That is because they are a folk who understand not.” (V:57-58)

In these verses Allah Most High hath forbidden friendship with Jews and Christians because they have made religion a plaything and a jest. Hence, as it has already been stated in the foregone, that the unfortunate, deprived, unlucky wretches who, notwithstanding their oral claims of Islam, consider the methods and Sunnahs of Islam archaic and look at them contemptuously and who gibe at those who act upon the Islamic ways and Sunnahs, but in fact also talk blasphemy, should be completely avoided; neither should anyone have friendship nor relations with them; on the contrary, other Muslims should also be saved from them, because association with such ill-natured people puts faith into jeopardy, while to save one’s own as well as other Muslim brethren’s faith and belief is a duty.In the first verse there is mention of making fun of absolute religion or anything religious and in the second it is about jesting at the prayer-call (Azan). Imam Zutiri says that there is mention of the prayer-call in the Quran also and then he recited the above-quoted verse.
There is absolutely no room for such hate preachers in Canada or anywhere else ( Saudia, Pakistan and Iran might be execptions !) . This "rabid mullah" was recently a "guest speaker" at the same mosque in Thorncliffe Toronto area, where the Paki shooter Faisal Hussein, (who opened fire and killed two innocent people ) lived !

Saudi Ego Punctured By ( Little) Canada ! . And They Do Not Like It !

FATAH: Good riddance to our ties with Saudi Arabia
August 7, 2018
Toronto Sun

Most Canadians were taken aback by the hostile reaction of Saudi Arabia towards Canada after Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland issued statements late last week calling on Riyadh to release imprisoned Saudi blogger Raif Badawi, whose wife, Ensaf Haider, and three children are Canadian citizens.
In a courageous move, Freeland posted her concerns on social media as well. She tweeted on August 2: “Very alarmed to learn that Samar Badawi, Raif Badawi’s sister, has been imprisoned in Saudi Arabia. Canada stands together with the Badawi family in this difficult time, and we continue to strongly call for the release of both Raif and Samar Badawi.”
To make Canada’s support for the Badawi family known to ordinary Saudis and the Arab world in general, on Sunday our embassy in Riyadh tweeted a similar message in Arabic.
Most observers believe this was the straw that broke the camel’s back. However, having lived for 10 years among the Saudis, I knew there was more to the Saudi furious reaction than what meets the eye.
It is more likely the Saudi Crown Prince and his underlings just could not digest the fact that a petite woman was haranguing them publicly and speaking to them as an equal, not as one bending-over-backwards, showing subservience to their head of state. :mrgreen: The Saudi Ego, giant size, does not though, match their capability !
After all, no woman in Saudi Arabia can even step outside for an errand unless she has the permission of a male member of her family. And here was Freeland standing up to the pampered bullies of the world — the Saudis. These are people who have not just terrorized their own dissidents, but erased Islam as a religion from the Muslim consciousness and replaced it with Islamism — a supremacist political ideology.
As early as December 2010, a Reuters report citing a leaked note from then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton reported Saudi Arabia is the “biggest funder of terrorists”. In a secret memorandum Clinton wrote, that Saudi donors still “constitute the most significant source of funding to Sunni terrorist groups worldwide” and that “it has been an ongoing challenge to persuade Saudi officials to treat terrorist financing emanating from Saudi Arabia as a strategic priority”. The Saudis were placated when and made good by making "big time" donation to the Clinton Foundation, after which the "heat" died down, in the same way that the present POTUS is being charged by MBS :mrgreen:
Much has changed since those days, but no matter who runs the liquor store, it’s the same plonk wine sold in a new bottle.Additionally, all Saudi students have been ordered to leave Canada immediately.
Many male students will miss the good life here in Canada ( soft and hard liquor , non halal food, girl friends on the sly- even though married, booze filled weekends, expensive cars & techie toys, friends, no financial worries etc etc )
Good riddance, I say. We were selling our souls to those who have nothing but contempt for us.
Back in 2003, The Globe & Mail reported on how countries such as Saudi Arabia actually buy medical residency spots at Canadian hospitals for their students to come here and train knowing they have no intention of staying here.
And because of their (generous) donation, a medical degree will be given to them, whether they are competent or not !
Slobodan Lemez, a family doctor from Sarajevo, Bosnia, who moved to Toronto in 1993, called the practice “completely unfair”.
“Why give these training positions to doctors who will not even practice in Canada?” he told The Globe in exasperation. “I am here, paying taxes, part of this society and community. This is my country: shouldn’t I be given first priority? I am not asking for special treatment, just a chance to retrain and practise here.” One last request to the departing Saudis: Could you also take back all the Saudi-trained Islamic clerics you’ve planted in most mosques of Canada?
This may not be easy , IMO . They are well entrenched here. And they hold Canadian Citizenship !

The Saudis May Not Be Happy With All This Unwanted Publicity :twisted:

United Nations requests Ottawa stop deportation of Saudi man
CBC News
August 8, 2018

Hours before he was set to be deported Wednesday morning, the United Nations stepped in and asked the Canadian government not to expel a Saudi Arabian man to his home country.Omar has been held in a Laval, Que., detention facility pending his deportation, which was scheduled for Wednesday morning. He has been detained since July 26.
CBC News is withholding Omar's real name due to his concern for the safety of family members still in Saudi Arabia.One of his lawyers, Anne Castagner, has confirmed that Omar was not on the 7:30 a.m. ET flight set to leave Canada, but that he may now be in hospital.A Federal Court judge denied a stay of removal Tuesday afternoon on the grounds that Omar had withdrawn an asylum request in Canada last year.Omar told CBC that he applied for asylum the first time due to concerns for his safety in Saudi Arabia, but had to return abruptly when his wife was arrested and detained for three days.​He then came back to Canada with his wife and two young sons, who were able to file asylum claims and therefore have not been at risk of deportation.
Brave man who went back to Saudia risking his life, to bring out his wife and children to a safe haven !
The UN's Human Rights Committee wants the removal slated for Wednesday morning stopped.
In a letter sent to Omar's lawyers, the UN says it has asked the federal government not to send him back to Saudi Arabia until it has examined his case.
"It's the last hope," Stéphanie Valois, another one of his lawyers, said after sending the request for the UN to intervene on his behalf."The UN has no binding power over Canada, of course, but they do ask Canada to respect their decisions," Valois said in an interview with CBC Montreal's Daybreak on Wednesday morning."And in the last years, we've seen that Canada has respected the requests from the UN."
Hope, Canada does the right thing !
In his decision filed Tuesday, upholding the deportation order, Federal Court Judge Roger Lafrenière said Canadian law states refugee claimants are not allowed to file another claim once they withdraw.Lafrenière said Omar didn't provide any documentation to back up his claim that he would be in danger should he return to Saudi Arabia. :cry:

In Saudi Arabia, the government demolishes mosques build roads and other constructions. Why did Muslims make such an issue of the Babri Masjid case in India?

Very good question - which has a deeper answer than most will realize. (A) It boils down to the fundamental difference between Saudi Arabia and India. Because Saudi Arabia is a dictatorship and a police state - if someone has a opinion that disagrees with government - and he tries to argue or play activist- then the dissent is crushed.A person expressing opinion that government is hurting Islam or Muslim sentiments will be crushed or silenced especially fast and brutally in Saudi Arabia.India on the other hand is a democracy - no matter how much the government hates or disagrees with a opinion there are many who will speak up- and if religious sentiments of any community are hurt there will always be a reaction and much more if a mosque (or disputed structure) is demolished. This is something that even the IM terrorist deported to India who was held in detention for many months by Saudis before Indians presented proof and got him admitted to.
He said that he was worried about his family but had no complaints about his treatment in India - but felt especially hurt how the Saudis treated him worse than a animal while he was in jail there.
(B) Because of political interests and the manner in which Babri Disputed Structure was demolished - by a mob - and the subsequent chest-thumping, riots and global condemnation. (NOTE: I say "Babri Disputed Structure" - because Rajiv Gandhi himself had the locks broken on disputed structure and allowed people access - thus fanning the religous fervour.Otherwise for many decades there had been no Namaaz offered and muslims considered it unfit to pray there due to presence of idols)

Pakis ( As Expected ) Line Up With "The Land Of The Sand" In Its Spat With ( Little ) Canada :mrgreen:

Pakistan stands with Saudi Arabia in protecting its sovereignty: FO

Can it be otherwise, when the First Islami Atomi Takat desperately need "anything" they can beg, borrow or steal to make a good start to implement the Kaptaan's NAYA PAKISTAN .

PS: Due to their own internal financial stresses , the Saudis may not be as forthcoming as they were in the past ( free oil, gift from the Monarch, interest free loans etc etc ) . They are adopting a" look and see" attitude towards The Khan, who by the way has "openly " praised the "Sufist" version of Malsi as opposed to the Wahabi strain which dominates all of Saudia. With Ganja they were "very comfortable" as their mutually beneficial relationship goes way, way back when "Abbaji" was in charge of the Sharif Clan ! . As of now, Imran is an unknown quantity. And he has dared criticized the Saudis of requesting Paki canon fodder ( Paki manpower ) to fight the Shias in Yemen . And Imran has graciously accepted an invitation from Rouhani to visit Iran first. This of course may not go well with the arrogant Saudis :mrgreen:

PS : And in return for this "Ummah Support", Saudia has "graciously granted" short term financial relief of $ 4 Billion US to the financially suffering Pakis :twisted:

Why Are The Pakis "Coming Hard" On This Local Yahoodi Who Wants To Just Visit Israel On His Paki Passport :roll:

Pakistani Jewish man seeking to visit Israel on Pakistan passport
Aug 9, 2018

Jewish Pakistani has garnered attention from social media users after he appealed to bigwigs of the country to permit him a visit to Israel on the Pakistani passport.
Hailing from Karachi, Fishel Khalid had addressed prominent headship of the country in a tweet requesting permission to allow him a visit to Jerusalem on his Pakistani passport.
Imran should sympathize. His Ex was of Jewish origin ( Jemima ) . Best bet would be for Fishel to approach Imran via Jemima . All through social media . Fishel should however make sure that Maulana Fazl does not get a copy of the Tweet on his mobile, or else all hell will break loose :twisted:
“Ohh the #Irony Please allow me to visit Jerusalem Israel on Pakistani passport. @ForeignOfficePk @DrMFaisal @fawadchaudhry @ImranKhanPTI @MaryamNSharif @abidifactor @BBhuttoZardari @OfficialDGISPR @peaceforchange Cc: @KnoxThames @rabbisaperstein,” stated his tweet.
Immy and Jemima are missing from the list !!!
The activist for Jewish rights in Pakistan had also tweeted a picture of his passport which stated ‘Judaism’ under his religion alongside another page of the passport reading: “This passport is valid for all countries of the world except Israel.”
IMO, the Pakis are following a dogmatic policy with reference to the Zionist Entity AKA Israel . Hell , even the Saudis are openly colluding with the "hated Israelis" to "punish" Iran ( A Musalman country !) . And MBS, last year, was seen supping and doing small talk with Rabbis and Jewish Intellectuals in the Big Apple. Since the Pakis take their cue from Saudia, do not see, what the problem is !!. The Jemima route is the best option for Fishel. If that does not work, he would be well advised to approach the Jewish Big Shots In NYC, (via social media again! ) who may start a "naming and shaming Pakistan" campaign in Massaland and all over the world to ensure that Fishel's Human Rights are not violated by The Islamic Regime Of Imran Khan :twisted:

Rowan Atkinson says Boris Johnson shouldn't have to apologise over 'funny' Burka comment

BEAN BACKS BOJO Comedian Rowan Atkinson says Boris Johnson shouldn’t have to apologise for ‘good’ burka joke

The ex-Foreign Secretary compared women wearing burkas to 'letterboxes'

BLACKADDER actor Rowan Atkinson last night insisted Boris Johnson's description of women wearing burkas and looking like "letterboxes" was funny.

In a letter to The Times the Mr Bean comedian insisted the former Foreign Secretary should not apologise and defended his right to poke fun at religion.

He wrote: "As a lifelong beneficiary of the freedom to make jokes about religion, I do think Boris Johnson's joke about wearers of the burka resembling letterboxes is a pretty good one.

"All jokes about religion cause offence, so it's pointless apologising for them.

"You should only really apologise for a bad joke.

"On that basis no apology is required."

It came as a fresh YouGov poll for The Times showed the Tories had stretched a four point poll lead over Labour.

Posting after a long time. If there should be a 10 min ready reckoner to understand Islamism, especially as originating from across the border, look no further than this. Please turn on youtube captions to understand Iqbal's poetry.

X Posted on the Neutering & Defanging Chinese Threat Thread

Chinese Muslims protest against plan to demolish mosque

BEIJING: Hundreds of ethnic Hui Muslims are staging a sit-in protest in China’s western region of Ningxia against government plans to demolish a huge new mosque, amid tightening curbs on Islam to pull its practice in line with the Chinese mainstream. The Worm Has Turned!

China officially guarantees freedom of religion, but in recent years officials nervous about the possibility of radicalisation and violence have tightened controls in heavily Muslim areas.

Muslims in China’s Linxia region fear eradication of Islam

The Weizhou grand mosque, with numerous domes and minaretsin a Middle Eastern style, had not received proper permits before construction, officials in the town of Weizhou said in a notice on August 3. The mosque would be forcibly demolished on Friday, they added in the notice, widely circulated among Chinese Muslims on social media. Most Mosque Built in India are without Proper Planning Permission!

The order provoked anger among villagers, but talks between mosque representatives and officials have failed to reach agreement, as worshippers rejected a government plan to spare the mosque if its domes were replaced with pagodas more in keeping with Chinese style, one source in the area told Reuters.

Hundreds of villagers were gathering at the mosque on Friday morning, and the town’s mayor was expected to hold discussions in the afternoon, added the source, who requested anonymity.

“If we sign, we are selling out our religious faith,” a Weizhou mosque supporter said in a note on messaging app WeChat that was seen by Reuters, urging villagers not to sign on to the mosque rebuilding plan. “I can’t talk about this issue,” said Ding Xuexiao, the mosque’s director, when reached by telephone. Mosque imam Ma Liguo said the situation was “currently being coordinated”. Neither of the men would elaborate. There was a protest at the mosque on Friday, a man at a government religious office in the county, the Islamic Association, confirmed, adding that the government only wanted the structure “renovated to reduce its scale”.

“The work with the public is ongoing. There has not been a specific consensus reached on the rectification plan,” said the man, who declined to be identified. Reuters could not immediately reach the Weizhou government to seek comment and officials in the surrounding county of Tongxin declined to comment.

Videos on social media on Thursday, which Reuters could not independently verify, showed large crowds gathered outside the mosque and police vans parked nearby. The protest appeared to be peaceful.

Arrests skyrocketed in China’s Muslim far west in 2017

Senior Chinese officials have urged Muslims to guard against creeping extremism, such as foreign styles copied on mosques, and strive to practice their faith in a more ‘Chinese’ way. Well-integrated in society with decades of smooth ties with the government, many Hui have watched with detachment as authorities have subjected the far western region of Xinjiang and its Uighur Muslims to near-martial law, with armed police checkpoints, reeducation centres, and mass DNA collection.

The treatment of Uighurs has spurred an international outcry, with US officials saying tens of thousands of people have been detained in Xinjiang’s detention centres.

But Beijing’s policy of ‘Sinification’ of religion has increasingly alarmed many Hui, who fear it is widening its strict measures in Xinjiang to additional Muslim areas, such as Ningxia and neighbouring Gansu province.

In the crackdown, the government has banned religious education for young people in mosques, ordered that the call to prayer over loudspeakers be silenced, and sought to stamp out what it sees as Arab elements in mosques.
