Why Muslims are underscanner ? Is being moderate a Sin ?

March 9, 2010 5 comments

The Question is why only a Muslim, has to prove time and again that he is a Muslim, and what type of Muslim, whether a Moderate Muslim, or a Staunch Muslim.

In Sept 2009. Muslims Gather on Capitol Hill for Prayer Nearly 3,000 people gathered Friday on the lawn of the Capitol for a day of Muslim unity that organizers said was about prayer, not protest. (Anna Uhls/The Washington Post) http://www.washingtonpost.com PLEASE SEE THE VIDEO link on search for capital hills Muslims gathering. or Double click on the Picture above. A MUST.

There is nothing like moderate, liberal or a staunch Muslim. A Musim is a Muslim. Just a Muslim. Then, Who is a Muslim ?   Just a Muslim. ?

We have debates in TV channels which try to pose these questions to  few among us. There are some who call themselves liberal or lighter Muslims,  some in them are  brave enough to accept that a Muslim has to pray five times Namaz, and   praying Namaz  is very important.  They also regrets that they are not able to pray for five times.  But this liberals are  proud to be a Muslim, and says they remember Allah eve ry minute of  their life.

All this is fine.  We know  there are, Muslims who do not pray five times Namaz. And we also known Namaz is a very important Pillar of Islam, an act which is one of the five pillars of Islam.

But  there is  greater commitment a Muslim makes when he calls himself a Muslim.  Than Just saying five times prayer.

To understand it better let us  try to know about the five pillars of Islam. And discuss.

Muslim of Today, is Wiser and Stronger, and Will strengthen the Constitution and the Ethos of India, He should not be taken lightly.

The Muslims of Andhra Pradesh were forced in to a merger against their wishes in the year 1956, on the national drive of the leader of Congress Party and the Prime Minister Shri Pundit Jawaharlal Nehru, to allow reorganization of state on the basis of language. The Nizam’s state, post independence was one of the rich and  the one of the best, princely states of India. 

Hyderabad State, had people of four regions with different ethnic and religious backgrounds  living happily and prospering  under the Umbrella of the Nizam,  from Karnataka, Telangana, Maharashtra, and Nizam.  That was a golden era with public services, health, infrastructure, opportunity, development, communication, educational, and cultural development in the region un parallel and the Indian people, and the people of AP are proud. 

 The Nizam was the richest person in the world, he was blessed with great administrative, and organizational skills. He allowed multi religious,  multi lingual, multi regional family of Nizam estate to flourish, the Monuments and the infrastructural  masterpieces, reservoirs, and gardens and public building speak the tale in golden voice even today.                Read more…

These women, have passports, they work in a sofware company, they respect the law of the land but they honour there religion too. They are better Muslim Women than the Muslim women who do not wear burqa, in the eyes of Allah.

When Muslim, women can take photograph for Saudi Agama, and Indian Passport, why not for Voter Id.  

Muslim clerics have backed Supreme Court directive that Muslim women must be ready to shed their burqa to be photographed for electoral role verification if they wanted to cast their votes. The clerics have argued that Islam permitted women to be ‘clicked’ in exceptional circumstances.

Justifying the court’s observation, the clerics argued that electoral roll verification was not possible without revealing the face, which made it a “special need” for Muslim women to lift their burqa.

“I am totally with the Supreme Court order. When we have no objection to photos for passport for going to Haj, why should we object to this? This should not be made an emotional issue,” said Delhi Minority Commission Chairman and All India Muslim Personal Law Board member Kamal Faruqui.

Reacting to protest from certain quarters against the court ruling, Faruqui said he would make an attempt to convince the community of the need for photo voter IDs. “I am sure they will understand the importance of having it,” he added. Read more…
