Can’t Agree More in Political Terms (leaving behind theological debate).
Refer the recent Chomsky’s views on World Politics. Refer following Link.
Any excellent idea, event or personality has always been a hostage of people’s restricted imagination. Be it the idea of Swaraj in Indian context, effort of AAP or restless effort of Arvind Kejriwal. This is not new for a concept victimised by general masses. Those mind who can not comprehend beyond people to people interactions are bound to criticise ideas.
The idea is to get people moving and over the times the best approach practiced was to instill greed and fear. This is quite an irony that the authentic teachings of any religion is to make people free from all desires which take the form of greed and fear, however on ground if we observe the very ground reality is quite opposite. People use religion as a tool to wrap their greed and fear around and sound holy. Often religion is used as a window to vent the emotions of anger out and worship the self greed of worldly desires. People worship since they need security from unknown fears as if someone will harm them and God will save them, or they need benefits in this world or hereafter. This vicious cycle of thought process which circles around the concept of fear and greed is well accepted to masses and then Religion; the cure to humanity is made a subject of fancy criticism.
At the same time i am not against and not contradicting the belief i carry as a Muslim. The belief around heaven, hell, angels, devils and supreme God is still intact and i never find myself in a position to bring greed or fear out of basic principles to live a peaceful life in this world. There is a sharp contrast. Personally to me hellfire and heavenly comfort is not such a source of fear and greed to drive my religious practice. These are the unseen concepts which is part of our belief system as these are taught and described in holy book and prophet (pbuh) confirmed about it. The real driver of a practice is how much you gain personally in performing an act. This is not that you please Allah with your rituals and make the divine happy, [the real point is] but you gain moral lessons and a chance to introspect which make you good “and in turns Allah become happy with you”. If a religious practice do not translate in realizing your own self, your own introspection and make you humble, calm and follower of good deeds then you are either becoming greedy or driving yourself out of fear.
So PK is right. Most of us go to Mandir or Masjid in certain defined cases. Either we are full of fear and need a quick escapism to avoid and face reality, or with full of greed to ask our God for special favors. I call this spiritual bureaucracy. This feeling is hijacked by Mullahs and Pandits and they benefit with funds from “green chadars at dargah” or “special VIP lines at Sai Baba Mandirs”. Those who are blessed go there if they get a new car or get married in order to satisfy the fear psyche of superstitious beliefs of going things wrong. How on earth a God will give a damn of your happiness of getting a car which is even not designed safe on Indian roads.
PK hits right. Religious corruption is the mother of all corruption. It blinds your eyes and make you asleep.
The interesting part of all human endeavor is that the one interested in solving the problem gets only limited 60-70 years where (s)he is continuously evolving and learning. So is it worth trying changing the world? Our beliefs, thoughts and action are so fragile and getting molded over the times. We all keep arguing, convincing and demonstrating our point of view. At times indulge in endless debates. The continuous flow of analyzing and interpreting history, experiences and perceived knowledge in deciding good and bad of this world goes on. Endless.
This is very common in discussion that we elevate an issue to an intellectual height and try others to comply to the ideal utopian situation. No one disagrees with the utopia however if people agree to it on face value; the reality of non-conformity of actions will make people feel hypocrite. In situations most of us need a confirmation on the thought we present and the defeat of people around is taken as a subject of teaching the fellow. This never works. This creates chaos and the whole purpose of healthy discourse is nullified.
All of us carry three Influence Domain (ID). The one ID is the self ID. How much we influence ourselves to follow a good idea. Without going to ask “why don’t they think like me?”, self ID takes in account how much we follow the same idea and how coherent “I am” in my thoughts and talks. And how much coherent “I am” in my talks and action. The difference between our thoughts and talks is “Hypocrisy” and the difference between our talks and action is “Personality Corruption”. Self ID should be of high integrity. When you advise others the correct way to Salah you must first think how punctual are you in Salah? At a level next you may think further to an ideal conceptual height about the ultimate objective and connection. This will make yourself more interested in enhancing self ID.
It is interesting to note that the ideal perfect practices are not to be discussed and debated, however it is a matter of devotion and practice. The gray areas of disagreement should not lit brighter than the shiny colorful fruits of benefits.
We quickly jump on the next Influence Domain i.e. Neighbors Domain. What prompts us to correct others? This is the key to ask. Do we really love a person and want that person to change or we need a certification of approval from my friend over my process of execution of certain stuffs. At times mostly we treat ourselves on the righteous origin and try to change the world. Please note that behavior changing is not an instantaneous affair. In whatever religion or school of thought you believe in there is always a space to accept the differences and do not make “Love” as a hostage of “Rules”. Either you love your neighbor or not, this is always hypocritical if you bring abstract rules to justify love and hatred.
This is really impossible if you want to bring people across family, friends, community and country to same method of executing things. This will never happen as this has never happened ever in history. The more you try, the more you will kill. You may justify this in the name of religion, nationality or hypothetical geographical border. The real solution is self awareness and being patient in understanding others. This may take ages or may not happen in your lifetime, however your effort will transcends to coming generations.
The third ID is what you establish with you and your’s true believe. Whether it is God as you conceptualize in religion or your raw intellect in Atheism. This is your affair, your sincerity and your fuel which defines you and your intent.
When Anna was in its peak and the duo rather trio Kejriwal and Kiran Bedi were waving tricolor, i predicted the future and it stands true. I do not wanted to sound pessimist however can not appreciate the false hopes and greedy dreams either.
At a higher layer a country is defined by its resources, internal and external policies and most importantly by its people and culture. If we define a hierarchy of layers people exist at the lowest layer, then families, and communities and then a rule or law set to get these communities living and working together. The progress and prosperity of a country depends on how communities in a country gel together and achieve common goals needed for socio-economic goals.
If we look carefully, a strong people to people relation define a strong family. A family is defined in a way we appreciate relationships and carry intangible values. These values are derived from cultural values or religious teachings. A strong bonding in family and healthy culture in home creates a strong fabric where positive qualities and firm foundations are laid for successful personal development. This relation transcends across families and to the communities. Likewise healthy families constitutes healthy communities who appreciate the qualities of each other and happily accept differences. No two person, family or community is alike in qualities and differences. However if we understand differences well we can celebrate the differences rather making it a point of envy and good/bad discussion.
So the set of communities define the national fabric. The strength of this fabric results in peace and security. All the national efforts and activities should work in a way or another to make this fabric strong. There is not a single way. There is not the Only way. The key to make strong bonding is to appreciate what is common across the community and inculcate a culture where similarities are encouraged. The second part of this key is to clearly understand the differences we see across communities and make ourselves aware that any Politician, Religious Scholar or any Influential person do not take advantage of the difference and plant the seed of hatred. If we understand the difference and celebrate it in healthy way; this will eradicate the hatred and envy.
These are the people who take hold of family and communities and participate in electoral processes and form government. Hate mongers do not parachute from Mars. These are the people in our neighborhood and they take control over the society simply because good people do not come out and practice good practices and fail to appreciate similarity and celebrate differences. This goes like old saying “your mind is like a field, if you don’t plant flowers, weeds will grow”.
What is “Ghar-Wapsi” and all the fuss around conversions. We all go through so many thought conversion each day. In this global age we have gone through so many Ghar-Wapsi in the field of technology, cultural influence and socio-economic change. Do we really care to make it a political issue? Give people the freedom of choice and let them follow what they want. If political class actually want a real conversion they should be concerned with the daunting tasks of “poor” to “prosperous” conversion. The question is how people define politician’s electoral agenda and development fall pray to it?
Well, the screw driver is slipping again against the defined shape of status quo. Truth is trapped once more since it is not supposed to take violent form. Since it ceases the existence of nobility and simplicity it is not allowed in general.
The saviour of lost sheep of Israel was prosecuted against his own people. People whom he cared for. People whom he loved but all said at a stage,”Why to rebel against Caesar”, let’s accept Caesar’s authority and be diplomatic.
Did Jesus answered the call?
Did Kejriwal answered the threat?
Will he stand against the level of torment once experienced?
Jesus created Anarchy, so did Muhammad and Abraham (pbuta). Krishna created Anarchy so did Ram. Every act of establishing “Kingdom of Heaven/Ram Rajya/Aman” is Anarchy to corrupt souls.
The sharp contrast reflected is observed only to those who have wisdom. Low interest rates and booming economy calculation in terms of GDP and Forex is more curse than cure. The little untold secrets of “religion” and “economics” is untold to masses. And the politicians play with these two keys.
Reason: People do not want to understand the simple complex terms and definitions which make them uncomfortable. They rather prefer to sleep in matrix of materialistic acquisitions. Work hard, be workaholic and follow TV. To get the unrest of soul discounted, believe in something which drifts you from the reality. So better sleep and work. Embracing reality is painful. Real embracement will make you stand and this will be painful. People rather prefer drawing-room couch, Newshour, Arnab and Kiran. And for a change of taste, Kofee with Karan.
The irony of situation is that the hooked matrix mental aptitude is stuck between personalities of political gimmicks. They have developed a sacred devotion in those who think are the next avatars of corruption busters. Be ready for a series of injustice again. This time with a new colour, smell and style.
He is like an innocent child. Nimble. Quick. Clear. Now. He just can not tolerate. He just can not moderate. Any diplomacy which sacrifices principles. He has got his Fundamentals intact. He is weak in politicizing and reaping benefit out of event. People coin events with intent. So let them be. This is how the history is.
The mountains of corruption, dishonesty, immorality and disbelieve are shouting again at “Moses”.
Will you be able to convince the Pharaoh.
Will you be able to control Egypt?
Will you be able to save Israel?
Moses is calm, composed and writing history with his bare stick.
The truth is that people discuss only people and most of them are selfish to their own ideology. Why he did this, why he did that? To most of the people their problem matters and i see people need quick solutions to their problems. Acidity. Eno. It acts fast.
The way they worship stones, graves, mazaars and peers, saints and yes of course politicians. The lazy dumbs expect some miracle. Yes, he is the man. He belongs to my community. He can bring change and lets associate the devotional feelings with this leader.
Laziness resist change. In particular a change which enables people to act. And in the due course every system become against to that ideology. Till the time promises are made a dreamy affair is established and people feel happy that something good is going to happen, and then they criticise the same people whom they elected, as criticism is also a source of happiness. Since i criticise so i am right.
Whenever any move, any act become personality dependent, it is bound to fail. Do we have the ideology which transcends the masses? Which party reflects the boldness of ideology greater than the personified leadership?
Swaraj is unique. Swaraj is the Indian way. Very few understand this in Indian context. Corruption is not the big headlines in news and some big politicians starting personal benefits. Corruption starts with the negligence and laziness we feel in implementing laws in our life. The act of outsourcing the system to few selected hands. We feel secure as there is no immediate challenge. And yes he is from my community so if he take a little advantage what is the big deal? This is corruption. People often deal with the symptoms of corruption, not THE CORRUPTION. The root cause is still in safe hands of selected fews. The mainstream political party Congress and BJP are taking advantage of the corruption phenomena in order to steer power in their court.
Corruption is worshipping stones in a way to expect miracles. Religion is not the garbage box to vent all your weakness and reckless emotions in the name of God. Religion is realisation of your own power in discovering the fact that man is nothing and the pride, greed and wicked desires need to be in constant control as we are all answerable to each other and to the Almighty.
While i was interested long time back in understanding the Islamic implementation of political environment i see many things happening now. People might say i am advocating Islam now, however this is not the case. Islamic laws are far more easy to implement if we have righteous people in place. However if we have dishonesty in place it is far more complex. i am afraid if explained in details, people will talk of AK implementing Sharia Law across India.
One of the fundamental is the empowerment of people so that they participate directly in government decision which effect people’s day to day life. No political party talk of such things in recent past except AAP. In Indian context it is called Swaraj. There is no surprise that the concept introduced by Gandhiji was inspired by Biblical and Quranic teachings he might have got while travelling South Africa. Gandhiji took a lot from Bible which we call “Satyagarah”. People who have read Bible will know the true meanings and context of Swaraj and Satyagarah. This is notable while Bible talk of the philosophy of self sacrifice to establish good, Gita talks of fighting the evil forces with all might, whereas Quran gives the both.
Oath ceremony in Public, Banning VIP culture, Leading simple life, Establishing the clarity between government and people, taking people’s consensus in public affairs, and fighting for justice and principle is all the traits explained by Khulfa-e-Rashideen long time back. This is quite refreshing to see the resurrection of these ideology in Indian context where most Muslim leaders have failed. Thats make India a land of miracles.
Jai Hind, all the best AAP,
The day a blog confession came out from #namo i thought for a while “OK”, however i wonder if a hateful person can write all these stuff, and there is no surprise if it came at the right time of general election.
Kill, Conspire, Be Silent and change paradigm at right moment. Namo is sailing the ship carefully. All is fair in democracy. The stupid Indians will again unite after Ayodhya victory.
Looking at the video he talked about Jamia Millia Islamia and his true lies and allegations proved again about his hate politics.
I have been a part of Jamia for more than 7 years and i know the complete episode of how and why such a statement from VC was issued. The innocent students whose charges are not yet proved are termed as terrorists and this is university’s responsibility to assist students and if they are found guilty they must be taken as per the law. However a mere allegation do not prove a person to be terrorists.
To Modi and all of his supporters:
Unless the class of Hindus who believe in above definition of Muslims exist, they will always be in a prejudiced mode and will never bring justice to society,
Shame #NAMO, Shame #BJP, Shame to all who think India is more Hindu country than be a democratic republic.
There happened two important events recently. The “Asaram” and Mr PM.
What will you do if you know the problem. In the course of letting things settled on its own, you kept silence, hoping the situation will come out of its massive gravity one day. But it never happens. This is the natural order. Genuine intentions need boldness and conviction to materialize in results.
Mr Singh knows the problem, and he understand very well that the economy can not be played back fast forward. How you can make your Rupee independent of Dollar. The scrambled egg will never get hardened again. The fools in India hope for a miraculous leader and he will do quick undos and everything will be on track. At least in their wish and desires they are miraculous but in reality they are stinky shits.
So Mr Manmohan can not do anything. Given the situation right and left. He is good at heart and bold in many ways, however the system thriving on propaganda, falsehood, and moral bankruptcy will not let him think and work in the way it should be.
We the people and Barkha Dutt. These news anchors are smart and they in-cash events. Every time i drift from the basics of the teachings in what i believe, these stupid people, rather stupid intellectuals who seek peace, and think of themselves as an authority of guideline principles for seeking the truth; i thank Almighty that i at least am not one of them. They don’t seek but they seek pleasure in the way they think is right.
I know that the people will never understand. Economics and Religion both have a different meaning to the general masses so they will not get the right meaning. They will continue chanting, shouting, meditating the man made laws, their own created Gods and Godmens. They will experience the peace till the time a noisy reality is discovered.
People make people God. This is the point they are raped. And when literally, they cry.
Just to remind and put it straight. There is only one path to salvation. The path Jesus taught, and Moses and Abraham and David, and Adam to Muhammad (peace be upon them all). God is one. The ilah, or Allah in Arabic. Formless to our comprehension, so do not idolize. Powerful, so close your eyes, seek blessings and feel, God is close to you, closer than you think. God is not in the business of begetting and having son or father. These are the worldly processes for living sustenance on planet earth. The final revelation is Quran, so if you get time learn it and question it. Question it. The more you question it the more you get it.
Let me be clear here, as millions of Indian Muslims, there is a threat. The zombies i see around, to them is their fear and they can harm me, anytime they want.
Godhra, “who did it?”, and “who perished?”. The politics of blood had a pre preparation of materializing the event. Our good Hindu friends, killed thousands of Muslims just to satisfy their emotions. They did not took revenge from the people who did the heinous crime of burning a train, but since they were “supposedly Muslims”, let’s Kill them, they are terrorists and they do not deserve to live.
3000 people killed.
3 Days of peaceful genocide.
1000 people a day.
These are Muslims, “Let’s Kill Them all,”
Well, to Modi, “these are tyre puppies”. Do not care,
And to all my friends who support Modi, “Congratulations, you got a political reasons to mask your face again”. You can kill us, as you like.
Kashmir, “Who and why the Brahmins were moved?”, “the new generation do not know”, however there is a perception “Muslims made them to move”, and now let us cage them in their own home, with military. The contempt in the eyes of the soldiers, with which they mock, smile and kill. Look, they are Muslims, let’s kill them. They are terrorists. The suckers of power and complex politics created “a virtualized world of hatred”, some of them hate and some are victimized. The price of a political decision is still being paid by thousands of Muslims being killed in valley. Some say “this is right”, let’s teach a lesson to these “Muslims”.
They line “Pakistani”, “Muslims” and “Islam” in a single line. However they are neither similar nor same. This troubles me. Islam is pure and pristine, Muslims are the followers, some good and some bad. And what is Pakistan? Well a country for Indian politics, with which they compare their own inabilities. A default gateway for all the accusations and “this is Pakistan, not my fault”. To most of them “Mens are from Mars”, “Female from Venus” and “Muslims from Pakistan”, they all are terrorists, “Let’s Kill them all”.
Where do i stand? Well, i love Islam and i am a Muslim, so i am a victim.
If you ask corruption, the corrupted soul can not bring development. He glamorize the development. Indian corporate bureaucracy is not a litmus test of country’s development. If you really want to uproot the corruption you really need to get out of this Muslimophobia and the drama of Hindutva.
Indian corruption and lack of leadership boldness is not the problem of a political party. There is a lack of political will in bringing the change. These suckers need power. Power at cost of anything. First they wanted to build a “Ram Mandir”, now they fairly polarized the people with the new hero. The hero who killed maximum “Muslims” in shortest time (this is the hidden happiness to most). The hero who boast a long story of infrastructure development. There will never be “Ram Rajya” they think of nor “Development” but again a series of injustice, to which all parties are equally responsible. It is only the matter of time and space. Who materializes it first?
