Lobbying : A menace or Necessity for democracy

Lobbying: A Menace or Necessity for Democracy Mohammad Akhtar,Ph.D, president of MCA Lobbying is an American phenomenon, which is new to Muslim migrants. They find it novel but more than that, they find it puzzling. We know bribery is wrong and illegal because an individual gives money to another individual for self- serving purpose that is against the collective interests. But in a similar way, if an individual or group gives money to another individual or group that is similarly counter to the interests of the larger segment of society, it should be equally wrong or illegal, regardless of the money involved being a big amount and given openly rather than secretly as done in bribery. If it is small money transacted between two people, it is considered theft. If it is millions of do...

IS ISIS supposed to be a Muslim organization

Will the US train Muslim Americans to take on ISIS The (Un) Islamic state of Iraq and Syria is an organization of individuals who coul easily put even beasts to shame. They belong to league of Hitler, ben Ladens and many more who promoted terror and murder for reasons they could not explain to themselves. They are against Christians, Jews, secularists and even Muslims. They are fighting a war they claim religious, which is overtly Satanic. Where do they get monetary support? Who supplies them weapons and ammunition? Who helps them in Europe and USA to recruit young Muslims who are usually unknown in their own communities for their commitment to Islam. The ISIS is an organization that stands for everything that is rejected by Islam. Islam demands sanctity of human life and ISIS rejects it...

The Desruction of Mecca

To commemorate HAJ and  observe Eid Ul Adha , it is fitting if we take a few minutes and reflect upon the destruction of Mecca that is going on. Are we the nation oblivious to the loss of irreplaceable treasury of Muslims that is being done by the Saudis. The loss done in the frenzy of Modernization and commercialization is effectively narrated in the article below. But there is another kind of loss to which the Muslim nation seems to be blind while other developed nations are in tears out of grief. For example ,recently the houses of hazrat AbuBakr and Ayesha were demolished out of sheer fanaticism that was in the cover of religious thinking associated with Wahabism, namely the fear was that people would worship the house and commit "Shirk" If it wer...

Muslims and British:Reflections

Reflections on British and Muslim Who is a British Muslim is an easy question: it is anyone who follows Islam and holds a U.K. passport. This is at once the easiest and probably the only workable definition. The more teasing question, which I wish to raise in this article is: what is a British Muslim? The query raises two problems related to belonging. What does it mean to be a British person who belongs to Islam? And, what does it mean to be a Muslim person who belongs to Britain? How do we map the overlap zone in a way that makes sense, and is legitimate, in terms of the co-ordinates of both of these terms? Clearly, by virtue of the first definition, the British Muslim population, all 1.5 million of it, divides into three groups. Firstly, and least problematically, there are men and ...

Boko Haram

Boko Haram Aslam Abdulla,Ph.D, Vice president of MCA Boko Haram has violated all religious and civil norms of humanity by abducting over 200 girls with the intention to sell them as slaves. It is a group that claims to be Islamic, yet in the eyes of Muslims it has nothing to do with Islam. It claims to be a saved sect blessed by God and it believes in the supremacy of its own concept of religious law under the domination and authority of men only. Who are Boko Haram? What are their ideas? In the Northeast Nigerian city of Maiduguri, one year after the September 2001 al-Qaeda attack in the US, Mohammad Yusuf, who was part of a group known as Shabaab since 1995 with Mallam Lawal as its leader formed Jamaat Ahl as-Sunnah lid-dawa wal-Jihad (The Congregation of the People of Tradition f...
