I do not support Dr. Zakir Naik… Surprised?

I do not support Dr. Zakir Naik… Surprised?

Few months ago I joined a community on Facebook , titled, “We Hate Zakir Naik”. What followed next was not less than a furor, comments after comments justifying why I should unjoin the community and how Zakir Naik is this Ultimate man. For a moment I felt that I wrote something against Prophet Mohhamed (PBUH)..Heaven’s forbid. I understood that people who love him could not see a hateful gesture against him, but I still cannot understand who were they to question my knowledge of religion and my freedom to criticize a human being? I was told that as I am not a muslim I have no right to make comment about him… seriously … is that so? Only the people who follow Islam have a right to discuss it, and the others have to face ‘tohmat’ for doing so? Anyways coming back to the topic that why I hate him. If you notice any of the lectures of Zakir Naik you will find a typical scenario, where he is speaking or debating in the presence of a sizable crowd which includes non-muslims. He give stunning answers which leaves the people spell bound, people are seen nodding their heads in agreement and applauding him for giving a ‘shut your mouth’ reply to the questioner. Not ones or twice but I have heard him often, and I always do whenever I get a chance, whether it’s on QTV or Youtube. But in vain I find nothing but the same things. He has become nothing but a messiah of answering repetitive technical questions on polygamy, eating pork, purdah, and a few more. With his phenomenal memory he quotes the verses of Quran and other Hadees and give striking reply to the people… they might find them wondrous but I feel like crying out loud… and say O MY GOD please stop… simply stop it… Islam is to explore… Islam is to learn … Islam is to grow… and Islam is not a history chapter which you mugged from the fear of a teacher. I simply pity when he is called a scholar, his logics are nothing but hilarious… one of his really hysterical one is about inter religious marriage. The logic to he gives to justify that inter religious marriages should not take place is that of putting a cycle’s tire in a car’s tire… will it move? It will not, similarly spouses with different religion cannot work out things… *yawn* it would have been much better if he would have simply said that Quran forbids it rather than making a fool of himself by uttering this crap. You cannot compare life to science, you cannot put a cycles tire in a car this is a fact, but a muslim marrying a hindu is not a physics experiment which will certainly have the same result. Again science reminds me of his claim that Quran has scientific proofs… which modern day scientist have proved.. Quran is a scientific document… I was literally bowled over… Religion and Science? Really? A sacred document which beautifies the love and command of God needs to be compared with science and also needs modern days scientist to prove it so that people can believe it. Religion doesn’t need scientific proves, it’s a philosophy which needs your faith. The...

Truth seekers conversation Part Deux

Posted by on Monday, February 20, 2012 in BLOGGISM™, Truth | 1 comment

Truth seekers conversation Part Deux

Two souls GuppyDas and GhantaRam,  seeking eternal truth. A short conversation Part Deux. GhantaRam : ET should come up with this kind of theme. GuppyDas : Interesting for writers actually. Not bloggers but serious writers like stories or novels etc. GhantaRam : hmm or like irregular bloggers like me 😛 GuppyDas : For you coffedesk is best. 😉 GhantaRam : thats not good I feel. BOLD is good but I need some kind of push GuppyDas : How many pushes you want? Life can take only certain amounts of pushes. You have a wife a kid a job a life … and me. What more push you need. Ya will break dude. Take it easy. Boredom is not healthy. Nor is over busy. GhantaRam : well.. I am not able to connect the dots GuppyDas : First of all be clear what are the dots. Stay on them. Stop running around chasing things that you think are dots. Next all will simple. Once you know what the dots are, connecting them is not a problem. So first finalise and confirm what constitutes as dots in your life. GhantaRam : That’s question, what the dots are? GuppyDas : Thats for you to find out. Unlike me you can’t have a dotless life. GhantaRam : May be I am missing to see the dots and imagining what I see is a dot GuppyDas : That can take the discussion in a different direction. Are you ‘missing’ it or are you choosing ‘not to see’ ? GhantaRam :  choosing ‘not to see’ is pretending GuppyDas : Ok got the name the theme is called ‘Simplism’ … rhymes with Bloggism 😉 … chalo ji 36 gun mil gaye shaadi pakki. GhantaRam : and missing is already pretended as ‘not seen’ hahahaha GuppyDas : It is not pretending we are talking about. It is chosing not to see. Pretending is done by fools. Acting, believing, assuming and being sure about something that is not. Where as the intelligent make choices. GhantaRam : Choices are always there, but fools pretend by not making choices in life GuppyDas : Nope. You are getting it little differently. Fools don’t know they have choices. Hence they pretend. Since they don’t know there are choices, they are qualified as fools. GhantaRam : So the difference is knowing but what is this Knowing but not acting? GuppyDas : Did you ever burn yourself drinking or touching a hot cup of tea (or something)? GhantaRam : by mistake, few times GuppyDas : If you did, you know what it is to get burned … now next time you have hot cup of something, you also have knowledge on what to do. Here you have choices. Either burn yourself again or be patient and take your time to tackle it. If you ignore the knowledge or even knowing that it is hot cup, you don’t exercise the act of choosing, and then you are not pretending, you simply being foolish. Knowledge alone does not make you intelligent. It is the choices you make, based upon knowledge that differs one from being intelligent or fool. GuppyDas : However in the same example if you repeat the event more often, you are being careless/reckless/impatient and of course foolish depending on applicable situation. Tiffin time. I will be back around 1.30. Talk to you later. Share this:FacebookTwitterGoogleMoreRedditEmailPrintLinkedInLike this:Like...

Occupy Wall Street

Posted by on Friday, October 14, 2011 in Truth | 1 comment

Occupy Wall Street

Is it for real? Is it happening? Will it make the difference? Will it all change? I guess USA can use some help from Anna Hazare of India, in fighting corruption. I think Anna will be happy to guide and lead the ‘Occupy Wall Street’ movement. He is good at it. He is good at mobilising masses. Honestly, I have my reservation. Unless the US of A, and particularly it’s people, take some time to reflect upon their own thinking, I doubt it will make any difference. I feel for those who are suffering. I truly feel for them. People are suffering, every where. People in Asia, in Africa, In South America and also the working class people in so called advanced countries of North America and Europe. There is so much misery all around. Yet, one nation, occupies the air waves, consume the time and attention of the rest of the world for what? People in US, have lost their homes, lost their jobs, lost their money. So? They are not the only ones who are facing this reality. Millions of people in rest of the world don’t have food to eat. Forget out losing anything. It is a miracle that they are alive, in the first place. When I hear the news, cries and watch the heart wrenching video posted on YouTube, about suffering of the people in US, honestly, I laugh. The only feeling I get out of it is that of a spoiled brat winging about not getting his way. Remember the French queen Marie Antoinette, the one who said ‘Let them Eat Cake’. I get that feeling when I see the Americans complaining of hardship. They are complaining that they are not getting their cake. However they are not starving like millions of Africans or Latin Americans or poor Indians. They are unable to live their lives of wasteful over consumption and that hurts them. Their way of life, ‘American Way of Life’, the one of being most inconsiderate and obstinate, insensitive, heart less, Capitalism is hurting them now. So does that warrant for all this melodrama? There are so many things so wrong with that country. It has given so much importance to ‘Rights’ and very conveniently forgotten the words ‘Obligation’. If there is one nation in the world, do be stereo typed as a ‘over demanding’ and ‘obnoxious’ then it is USA, closely competing with Israel. Now don’t get me wrong. I am not a far left wing Communist radical or some sort of Socialist activist. Neither I am a radical Jihadi, who finds flaws with US, in everything that they do. I am a simple man of simple views. I say, what I feel. Recently, I had the opportunity to view a films and documentaries. Most of them, interestingly, were trying to present the dark, sad reality of matters as they are happening in USA. Some startling facts that came out of that, make me wonder, is an average American so dumb and naive that he/she can’t see this? I mean I can see it from thousands of miles away, based on free observation. How come people living inside of US miss it? Highlights of strange things that makes me wonder, if US of A is indeed a great nation as they seem to believe:...

Who Let the Blog Out!!

Who Let the Blog Out!!

We are sorry that we are late in this, but BLOGGISM™ salute Govind Tiwari ji Allahabad wale (Govind Tiwari of Allahabad) for providing us such a unique blogging Experience. Next time I would be in Uttam Pradesh of this Purushottam, I would go to Allahabad and dip three times in Triveni and then go to his home to touch his feet and get blessed. He has taken BLOGGISTS™ to a new height. Potential is the soil of Allahabad, after giving leader like Nehru, celebrity like Amitabh, Sportsman like Mohd. Kaif, poet like Bachan and Mafia like Atiq Ahmed, it again surprised us in form of its latest and greatest son Govind Tiwari. When our Social scientist Mr. Guppydas saw his blog, he was like $%#$%…. “Holly craps he looks like the male artists who do female roles in typical Nautanki…. BHAAAANDDDDDDDD” Its his charishma that he had to create atleast 11 blogs on blogspot.com to know the world how much great Blogger he is. He proves that you don’t need to write a single word in your blog to be famous, what you need is just few snaps clicked in some studio with some different background, then have a PC/Laptop along with a pirated version of Photoshop and an internet connection. And you can become Internet sensation something sort of Mark Zuckerberg. Adding to his greatness photobucket where he hosted his creative images exceeded bandwidth due to hits on his blogs. Now Photobucket are planning to have a dedicated server for him and working on some sort of algorithm which will categorise the images and those will match with Govind Tiwari Category will be hosted on dedicated server. We tried to contact Govind Tiwari, but he was busy with some photographs editing on his computer but he left a signed message for aspiring BLOGGISTS on a print of his photograph where Obama is watching him on TV, “Yes, We Can”. “Prembhushan ji ko shat shat naman……………………………………………..”  😀 Share this:FacebookTwitterGoogleMoreRedditEmailPrintLinkedInLike this:Like...

Time to Wake Up

Time to Wake Up

What is it that I want to teach through these pages? More importantly what is it that you want to learn through these pages? Most importantly is there anyone who is reading these pages? When the questions above are answered, I guess I will have a job or not. No matter how much I project myself as a philosopher, thinker, speaker and writer, the fact still remains, that no one is interested in reading what I write or think. So be it. Do I really need recognition? Answer is no. I am what I am and I will be whatever I will be. It is true for all those who follow this humble attempt of bringing some relief in this mad world. Comical I am in my writing, at the best, and yet I do enjoy a small fan following. My attempt is nothing great. Not at all to change the world. Intentions are pretty clear. Through what I write, I wish to reflect what churns in my mind. I am a simple man. Simplicity is hard to find in our new world that for some reason has become too complex for my comforts. At times I feel lost. Not exactly in sense of missing the direction however you can say it in terms of missing the point. I am working on getting the graphics made that would illustrate my idea of Universe. It is a simple piece of graphics. Maybe, if I spend time on it, I will be able to do it. However, it has not happened yet. It will happen soon. I know that. What I wish to write today is nothing more than a reminder of the all the blabbering I have done so far. You are the centre of your Universe. The Universe that you see or experience around you is your own creation. You are not the receptor. You are the radiator. You radiate the world around you. Everything originates from you. So in order to feel good, you better start radiating good thoughts. This is not about some cliché positive thinking new age process. It is about reality. I saw this becoming a modern day fashion statement. ‘Positivity’ is over used word now a day. So much so that it has started having negative connotation. They say, too much of anything is bad. Quote me on this; too much of good is bad too. Let’s cut the crap and get real. It is time you and I take control of our world. If you are not interested, be my guest. If you are interested, follow your own path. Don’t walk ahead of me as I may nor follow you. Don’t walk behind me as I may not lead. Don’t walk with me either, go find your own path and walk your own journey. I can only guide you. Walk you must. I cannot walk for you. Do yourself a favour. Write down, I mean take a piece of paper and pen, write it down, seriously, no kidding. Write down what do you want. Do it. Stop reading this. Write that down now. Let me make it even simpler for you. Write down ONE thing. Just one simple thing. You can’t even get that right. What is wrong with you? What is wrong...

A day to celebrate?

A day to celebrate?

I had promised a friend of mine to write an article to share his pain which he felt on first of April, not all alone but with most of the World. I am not able to describe it in here. Words and literature start betraying me when ever I am trying to write something. However when I saw a latest comment on this site, I collected some courage and few words to put it down. When I am met my friend, Mr “A”, on first April’s evening, he was down, looking far into horizon had some tears in his eyes. I called him, right from his front, but he was so deep in his thought that his ears refuse to listen and eyes to see. I had to shake him to bring him back on this planet. My friend was very sad. After persuading a lot, he opened his mind, heart and mouth. He said “You know what’s date and day today.” “1st of April”, I replied. “Aaaah, 1st of April, all Fool’s day.” My friend became more gloomy, “April sweet is in, Feast of fools begins…..” I stopped him and asked, “What happened dear, did someone make fool of you. Come on leave it.. today is the day for……….” My dear friend screamed, “Who can make me foooooooooooooooool…”. I thought, “Yes, you are already!” “But, I am sad because every donkey, money, dog and even these fools have a day to celebrate, but we assholes don’t have any day dedicated to us.”, he cried and said a quote in German – “Arschlöcher der Welt, vereinigt euch. Sie haben nichts zu verlieren, aber eure Ärsche!” I was speechless. He was right in his sense, there was no day for people like him. I tried to console him by saying, “Okkk… but you can celebrate it on 1st May, 4th July, 14-15 August” He said all these days are already occupied with something. “Interesting” I thought to myself. However not many realise that these days are celebrated by Assholes. How so ever they are not meant to be. Then again, look at any day as such that is celebrated. Don’t you get the feeling that they too get celebrated by Assholes and the person(s) who are meant to celebrate? When that be the case, I wonder why Mr A would want a special day? Them Assholes celebrate 365 days a year. Where is the true spirit of celebration gone? Can someone help me find it? Should it not be honouring/respecting the occasion, the cause the event? Why it all has become a play of Assholes? Tragic isn’t it? Think about it. Share this:FacebookTwitterGoogleMoreRedditEmailPrintLinkedInLike this:Like...

Humiliated by World cup defeat Srilanka and Pakistan declare war against India

Humiliated by World cup defeat Srilanka and Pakistan declare war against India

Straight after the defeat of his team to India in ICC World Cup final match Sri Lanka president Mahenda RajPakshe has declared war against India. Just after the match finished he left for Colombo and he was looking furious, more than he was looking last time when he decided to eliminate LTTE name out of the General Knowledge books. At Colombo Airport when he touched the ground he kissed the Lankan land like he has done many times back as symbolic gesture of his victory and declared war. “These Bilateral and trilateral issues would not be solved on cricket ground and in a match any more. If India wants a war we will give it to her and it will be fought in her heartland”, he commented. He said India has humiliated this island nation in many ways yesterday. Just after the toss which happened two times he said it was clear indication that Sri Lanka had won the toss and the match and Trophy could be handed over at the same time to Sangakara Sri Lankan captain. He went to say that It was conspiracy of India to invite Presidents and Prime Ministers of neighboring countries and humiliate them and he will not let it go. He ordered Sinhalese navy to attack at India from Madras and other Tamilnadu coastal ports. He went on length on record to describe how Tamils had humiliated in past as well when a Chola king with strange tiger flag planted LTTE there to invade their society. His excellency said he accepted and went to Mumbai because he was thinking that a Tamil R Ashwin will play in the match and his team could get some inspiration to defeat a Tamil but instead of keeping Ashwin in place of injured Nehra Indians played dirty politics and kept Shreeshantha in the playing eleven which was clear indication that India wanted to humiliate Sinhalese as ShreeSanth commonly known as Appam is capable to piss off anyone on the field and he did the same and Zaheer bowled his first three overs for maiden, only Sri Lanka team could play well in last overs when they got confidence that Appam won’t bowl again but it was too late. Even in Batting after Sachin’s dismissal Gambhir told our team to keep in limits else we will promote Appam in order.  When reminded that Murlidharan the highest wicket taking bowler in his team was itself a Tamil, “He is ‘GOOD’ Tamil, like Pakistan have ‘GOOD’ Talibans”, Rajpakshe told. On Appam episode he said “India has not only used this tactics against Sri Lanka but also against Bangla Desh”. when asked whether he has discussed Bangla Desh about it, he said “It won’t matter, they have Indian agents in Government.” But he has talked to Geelani and Kiyani dudes on hotline and both have similar thoughts that India has humiliated their great nation by calling PM and President to watch match in Mohali in front of Sardars and they had chosen not one but two Muslim players against Pakistani team. It was a plot by BCCI, RAW and MOSSAD against an Islamic nation and to keep the duty of a true Muslim brotherhood Pakistan lost the match. And It was not only one humiliation but that they deployed Missile...

Endangered Species

Posted by on Friday, April 1, 2011 in BLOGGISM™ | 1 comment

In a recent leak, Wikileaks its exposed in a cable sent from US envoy in UN that few so called humanitarians demanded UN to declare North America as sanctuary for like minded people today which is very auspicious day for USA. Goose birds from North America have supported it.  Gooses got a serious threat of existence when people started killing them when get frustrated saying “Talk to me, goose!” after watching Topgun. Dogs from India have sympathy with Goose on this issue and have said they would like to see similar things to be happen in India as well. Notably dogs in India are living in fear that someday Dharmendra or sunny or anyone from Dharemedra’s family may really drink their blood after Dharam’s famous Dialogue “Kutte, kamine main tera khoon pi jaaunga” – “You bastard dog, I will drink your blood.” Back on the report, the cable clearly states that they have support from Russia, Iran, China ( they have not said anything about Pakistan but it’s obvious) and the one and only person who knows and understands Libya. India has not decided to support or not. USA’s close allies USA jr, its sidekick Britain, old time bunny France and their cook Italy have joined together and said they will block any such move by UN. They have decided to organise Doom Or Unreal Tournament kind of game in Libeya along with Flight simulator tourney as well. Additionally a Wikileaks states from an undisclosed source that Afghanistan would welcome any move if United Nations propose any Zoo or theme Park for humans there or anywhere on the earth. Till this report written a highly complex survey disclosed that only 1411 are left in India, some 300 in China, 20 in Russia and no idea about America.
