I think you thought there was no such place for you, and perhaps there was none then, and perhaps there is none now; but we will have to make it, we who want an end to suffering, who want to change the laws of history, if we are not to give ourselves away.Ask me anything
Just like Christmas is a time for “peace on earth, goodwill toward men”, Ramzan is similarly supposed to promote peace and harmony, as Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset and not only increase their love for Allah but also feel closer to their less fortunate brethren etc. etc.
So much for that.
An 11-year-old Christian girl with Down’s Syndrome has been jailed- yes, you read that right folks, JAILED- for blasphemy. Locals allege that the girl burnt pages of the Quran, ET is reporting it as a Qaida, I bet in the end, its going to turn out to just be a book written in Arabic.
Of course, we’ll find that out after the poor child is hanged. Hey, Islam loves children, promises them rights, teaches its followers to be kind to them, etc. But that’s just for Muslim children, who cares about the infidel Christian children, right? Why should any god-fearing Muslim try to seek help/treatment/therapy for the girl just because she has an illness, after all, its probably just punishment upon her for being a Christian. Never mind the fact that a child has no religion, except for the religion of her/his parents which is adopted after years of careful
indoctrination religious studies.
Happy Eid everyone.
No one cares if Ahmadis Hazara Shias Christians Hindus Sikhs are persecuted, killed, jailed under the blasphemy law, people who are your countrymen, who probably shop at Sunday Bazaar same time as you, who might have the same cornershop barber as you, people who sing the same national anthem, who admire the same founder of the country, who use the same goddamned currency speak the same language wear the same clothes and yet none of you, not a single one of you horrible, horrible, HORRIBLE people give a rat’s ass when these people suffer, because no no no, WHY would we care about humanity, about our countrymen, about our fellow Pakistanis. But Muslims get killed in Burma and you’re all signing internet petitions and discussing how awful it is at the dinner table. Never mind the dying Pakistanis, we have MUSLIMS to worry about. You’re all stupid because you have effed up priorities and I hate all of you for it. You’re all the reason why I want to die young, because I can’t live in this world. You, all of you, are the reason that I despair and wonder if I’d ever want to bring children into this world. You’re all horrible, horrible people. I hope you all die you rotten bastards.
I watched this week’s True Blood last night. It was epic. Except for one teeny, tiny part. When Terry is freaking out over the Afreet and wants to shoot himself, Patrick yells at him that he’s not going to do it, because “Suicide is for Muslims!”
Yeaaahh. I’m agnostic. I dislike religion. I particularly dislike Islam. But my hate for religion or Islam is nothing compared to my intense dislike of intolerance. It was just one casual, flippant line, but enough to remind people that they should hate all Muslims because all Muslims are suicide bombers.Essentially, you’re pandering to the fears of the public, instead of educating them about misconceptions. God I sound like a Muslim apologist, blegh. My point is, ffs being Muslim doesn’t make you a suicide bomber (makes you a shit load of other things but beside the point) and the line shows carelessness on the part of the writers. Not to mention a great deal of stupidity. So every person in the world who commits suicide is a Muslim eh? Here I was thinking suicide isn’t related to race, religion, or sex.
Yes I dislike Islam but I happen to like a great number of Muslims. Because they’re good, decent, tolerant people. They work hard to try to create a better world. They don’t practice religion in a way that causes harm to others, in fact, they use religion to do good for others. So I don’t care what they believe in, I care about the work they do, and the example they set for others in being a good human being.
And no, none of them are suicide bombers or even vaguely suicidal.
I was at the SOCMM12 as a guest, and happened to wander into a session about how we footprints online which may come back to haunt us. The panelists were discussing that there are some people who will proudly say, I do not know anything about the internet, I do not know anything about Facebook or computers, but there needs to be awareness about how this is something to be ashamed about, and how, for children’s security parents need to be more involved. Now this panel was three women and one man; one of those women is an incredibly strong, vocal radical feminist, and the other two women are intelligent, strong women as well.
Despite that, the male panelist was clever enough to say, regarding the lack of tech know-how, that “it is normally women who say things like this”. Forget the panelists, the audience went wild, booing and oohing at him. The feminist snapped at him about a misogynist confirmation bias; he did NOT understand what that meant and stubbornly claimed that he was opinionated and unafraid to voice those opinions. From the front row, a girl yelled, “Its not about being opinionated, its about having wrong and misogynist opinions”. Poor chap still didn’t understand.
They really need to screen panelists better for this next year.
