SABHA - 4M Report Arvind Kumar, 10 Jul, 2005

Your regular dose of pseudosecularism

  1. SABHA regrets the Londonistan bombings

    South Asian Bleeding Hearts Association regrets the loss of lives in Londonistan resulting from the multiple bomb blasts that rocked the city on Thursday. However, the real tragedy is that Muslims are poor and alienated from the mainstream. Their miserable condition is in stark contrast to the wealthy people who make money on Fleet Street. Their unemployment rate and frustration levels are high, but most of Britain seems to neglect them instead of fixing the problem.

    When Londonistan was awarded the 2012 Olympic Games, the rich people in the city expressed their joy at the thought of indulging in the idle pastime of watching who throws a javelin farther than the others or who runs faster than other people do. Meanwhile, the poor Muslims who lived in wretched conditions must have felt frustrated that others were watching sports even as they struggled to make ends meet. Just a day after Londonistan was awarded the 2012 Olympic Games, the bombs went off.

    Britain must make sure that it does not fuel the endless cycle of violence by arresting those who bombed their trains, but must show compassion by tackling poverty and solving the problem. Instead of awarding prison terms for the bombers, it must put them on welfare.

    Meanwhile, Islam has been declared a religion of peace in the wake of the bombings.

    We would like to reiterate that Islam is a religion of peace, justice and freedom...


  2. BBC violates its policy

    BBC violated its policy of not calling terrorists as terrorists. It headlined its report of Thursday's bombings in Londonistan as ' London rocked by terror attacks'. Its editorial guidelines state the following:
    The word "terrorist" itself can be a barrier rather than an aid to understanding. We should try to avoid the term, without attribution.
    BBC followed its policy when it reported the attack on the Ram temple at Ayodhya. Instead of placing a barrier to understanding the issue, it aided our understanding by calling the attackers as gunmen.
    Indian police have killed five gunmen who attacked a flashpoint religious site in the northern city of Ayodhya.
    ...
    The Ayodhya complex is one of the most fiercely disputed religious sites in the world...


  3. Different strokes for different folks - A tale of two cities

    In a shocking turn of events, London's Guardian called the Londonistan bombings as terror attacks. It went further and actually called the bombers as terrorists!
    Four bombs in 50 minutes - Britain suffers its worst-ever terror attack
    ...
    At least 38 people were killed yesterday and more than 700 injured as terrorists struck at the heart of London, causing the biggest loss of life in a terrorist attack on mainland Britain.
    The paper, known for supporting Communists and Islamofascists, stated that the attacks in Mumbai nearly two years ago were carried out by
    ... groups avenging Muslim deaths in Hindu-Muslim riots after the razing of a mosque at Ayodhya in northern India.
    Guardian, which claims that the use of the term Islamofascist is nothing but propaganda, considers Hindus as fascists.

  4. Din! Din! Din! Gunga Din!

    Alleged Prime Minister Manmohan Singh claimed that British Raj was beneficial to Indians and appreciated the British setting up a labor camp at Andaman and carrying out other atrocities. Speaking of the fight by people like Savarkar and Aurobindo Ghosh, he stated,
    ..even at the height of our campaign for freedom from colonial rule, we did not entirely reject the British claim to good governance. "


  5. Times of India: Help prevent Muslim girls from leaving their locality

    Objecting to a decision of the Madhya Pradesh government to shift a women's college in Bhopal to another location in the city, The Times of India argued that Muslim girls would be ghettoized, as they would get exposure to the world when they went outside their locality in order to attend college.
    The state cannot be allowed to ghettoise communities in this manner.
    Indian Express reported that "social activists" formed a human chain formed a human chain protesting against the decision of the government.

  6. Conspiracy to defame Islam

    A woman is raped by her father-in-law. Under the Islamic law, she is ordered to marry the rapist and treat her husband as her son.

    So, why do many people in India call for a "uniform civil code" when we have such wonderful laws given to the world by Islam? The answer is that it is a conspiracy to defame Islam.

    “It is a conspiracy to add fuel and politicise the incident of Imrana and damage the image of Islam and its custom,” it said.
    ...
    "The Sharia law is firm and states that Imrana has to be separated from her husband...
    The academy is peeved by the way the whole issue has been made to look anti-human, whereas, in contrast it is totally in favour of women involved,” they said.


  7. More on the alleged terror attacks in Londonistan

    The bombings in Londonistan, allegedly carried out by terrorists, seem to be an act of revenge for the British occupation of Iraq.
    A previously unknown Islamist group, The Secret Organization of al-Qaeda Jihad in Europe, claimed responsibility, saying the attacks were "in revenge for the massacres that Britain is committing in Iraq and Afghanistan."
    The apparent revenge attacks come at a time when British troops have occupied Iraq along with the Americans. The Iraqis have been angry ever since the British Prime Minister, Tony Blair, plagiarized a student's work and passed it off as "intelligence reports" in his infamous dossier that was used as an excuse to invade Iraq.

    SABHA appeals to the British people to show restraint and not indulge in mindless killing of its minorities in retaliation for the bombings. Violence never did any good to anyone. It is important that the British people not kill anybody.
