Year 2002

For the last several weeks there has been rioting and killing in India. Hundreds have been killed. Today, March 15, 2002, is the day that many fear could engulf the entire sub-continent in a civil war in which millions could die. Ever since the Hindu Nationalist Party, the VHP (Vishwa Hindu Parishad), won elections in 1992 and drove the traditional Congress Party from power, tensions have been rising. In 1992, Hindu rioters stormed the oldest Muslim mosque in India, tore it down and reduced it to rubble. This led to riots throughout the country that left 2,000 people dead.

Has humanity grown since or is religion still obstructing it?


Tasleem Solangi (in the photo), a 17-year-old girl, was accused without any proof of "immorality": the young woman was accused of having an "extramarital" relationship, for which reason she was punished by relatives. From the initial reconstruction, it emerges instead that a land dispute was at the origin of the brutal killing. The girl was murdered solely in order to convince her father to sell. Read it here

Inspired by “Buddhism” too?

Read here“Muslims in Burma are not considered to be citizens. They have no rights and often suffer discrimination and indiscriminate killings. Many of them, in particular after 1962, had to flee the country and still today live in refugee camps in Bangladesh, which actually do not welcome them. Although Muslims have taken active part in the 1988 revolt, and paid the consequences more than the Buddhist population, the majority of monks and Buddhists in Burma have anti-Muslim sentiments, in particular based on the fear of possible intermarriages”.

Wow! Haven't dropped by in a few weeks and you have written up a storm.

I guess you have been busy with your calling and me with mine.

Anyway, just to let you know I haven't forgotten you and will devote the better part of next week reading and hopefully understand your postings.

Hopefully I won't be distracted with more sewer type politics.

Take care bro!

It seems that God is able to pour upon mankind retribution from above them and from beneath their feet - (oftenly misconstrued as natural disasters).

In the same verse, He also said He is capable of dividing mankind into different religions - and this is done in order to let them suffer the tyrany of one another.

If you believe killing in the name of religion is sanctioned by God as a sign of retribution from Him - then, let it be a reminder for the rest of us.
