Aditya "I leave you with a hypothetical situation. Imagine yourself and your family as immigrants to the United States of America, prosperously ensconced in the heart of the country in say Knoxville, Tennessee. Imagine that a growing “anti-indian” wave Read more ...
is fueled by Indians being perceived as immigrants who have stolen jobs from Americans. Perhaps a flash point incident occurs in which a white family is driven to suicide after the mother and father lose their jobs to Indians. Mobs bay for Indian blood. Imagine a 5,000 strong mob of White Americans gathering outside a community known to have several Indian families. You, your family,your neighbors, all incessantly call 911 and are given copy book answers or worse there is no response. Meanwhile the Governor of the state summons the police chiefs and ask them to stand down and let the people vent their anger. You see cops standing on the periphery of the complex, armed to the teeth but not moving a muscle to control the mob. A few young Indian men from the Gupta house two doors down try and mount a defense using their Dad’s shot-gun. You see the police finally step into action but to your horror they gun down the Gupta boys and retreat to their squad cars. The police action gives the mob validation and free reign. The dam is breached and the mob runs amok. You see the community's Indian women raped, children hacked, men burned, and unborn fetuses pulled out with swords and thrown to the ground. The horror lasts 10 hours and over a thousand Indians are brutally massacred in cold blood. This incident is followed by a period of great economic growth for Tennessee. Witnesses murdered, officials bribed and punished, the cases against the governor and other accused dropped for lack of evidence and because members of the KKK are appointed as District Attorneys prosecuting the accused. Then imagine that the United States elects this man to President of the country 12 years later. This made possible by a combination of old timers that secretly admire the governor for “teaching the Indians a lesson”, and young adults in their early 20s that have little or no memory of the genocide and are filled with misdirected nationalistic pride fueled by hormones that program them to rebel and that by definition means “anti-establishment and anti-incumbent”. You tell me how history and the world will judge USA if that governor was to be elected President. You tell me if his economic gains will make any difference. To the world and certainly to all Indians, that man and by association USA will always be the epitome of what is wrong with this world. India is on the edge of that precipice. It doesn't matter if we think Rahul Gandhi is slow or if Kejriwal is a drama queen. A civilized society cannot cannot cannot elect anyone it believes might be a mass murderer. We will lose our claim to civilization if that happens, and a few successful industries and roads will never offset that."

Nigerian Breaking News
BUHARI NEVER SAID THAT MUSLIMS SHOULD VOTE FOR MUSLIMS. Bishop Hassan Matthew Kukah on allegations against Gen. Buhari. When I saw the screaming headline claiming that General Buhari had called on Muslims to vote only for fellow Muslims in the next e Read more ...
lections, I could almost tell what the national reaction would be. My brethren within Christianity would react like wounded lions. There would be name calling, bashing, brick bat throwing, Sabre rattling and so on. The nature of the accusations would be predictable. I also knew that politicians from both sides, anxious for capital and advantage, would throw in their lot in any direction that favours them. My suspicion was that General Buhari would not respond. He will remain his typical Self, taciturn and philosophical. He would be hurting and wondering when it would all end. Interestingly, I was not disappointed, as the reactions in the last two weeks have shown. The General has been called all kinds of names. Christian leaders have threatened to call out their followers to vote only Christians, some have given the General a date line for retraction, while others are calling for his removal from the Council of State and seem to regret ever having the man as a Head of State. Just like all debates about such sore points in our polity as ethnicity, we have ended up generating so much heat and have absolutely no light to show for it. Typical Nigerians love talking more than thinking. My purpose in this article is twofold. First of all, to clarify, if possible, what exactly General Buhari said, and secondly, to use the debate as an opportunity to look more closely at the finer points of the role of religion in politics. We must move from talking to thinking in this country. In dealing with the first point, I have shied away from commenting on the allegation despite prodding from the media because I have learnt that there are always two sides to every story and unless the evidence of both sides are in, all attempts at judgment are not only dangerous, they will always naturally be based on prejudice and bias. They can either only exacerbate the problem, deepen agony, reinforce prejudice and increase tension and misunderstanding. Since the story broke, I have tried to reach the General without success. Now that I have managed to speak with him (Saturday 23rd June), I feel morally in a position to make judgment on the issues base on my nearly twenty Minutes chat with the retired General. This does not in any way mean that all I say will be correct nor do I attempt any iota of self-righteousness. I believe that whatever the world says, every individual is not only entitled to an opinion, he or she is entitled to be heard. We can register our disagreement based on knowledge of the facts. Facts may be sacred as they say, but facts are not truths. When I finally called the General's Kaduna home, he sounded like he was in a very good mood. After dispensing with pleasantries, I informed him that I had tried to reach him but had not been successful. He apologised to me saying: Well, whenever it rains, my phone normally has to recover from the effect of the rain. It was a good note on which to start our conversation. So Your Excellency, I asked, what exactly did you say? I have read the reactions to the statement credited to you and wanted to find out what exactly it was you said. He seemed and sounded pleased that he had a chance to state his case. He also did sound anxious to explain himself as I listened. He proceeded to speak on about ten minutes and I listened and made some notes. This is his side of the story as he told me. I can only attempt to paraphrase him: Sheikh Sidi Attahiru Ibrahim is a Nigerian Islamic Scholar and he had been in Saudi Arabia for 13 years. He travelled to see me in Daura and informed me that he had written a book, which Dan Fodio University had published, and he now wanted to launch it, would I kindly oblige him by accepting to chair the event? Considering his age and the fact that he travelled all the way to Daura to see me, I obliged. Although a book reviewer had been invited, I had been asked to make my comments, as the chairman of the event, I spoke without a prepared text and in the course of my comments, I drew attention to the fact that the introduction of Sharia had become one of the main issues in this new dispensation. I explained that Sharia, however, has been with us well before the British colonized Nigeria. Now, Sharia has been introduced in many Northern states and Sokoto is one of the states that has already adopted Sharia. It must be pointed out however that Sharia is applicable only to Muslims. Those elements that have taken the law into their hands and use the opportunity to molest other non-Muslims are not helping the cause. What is more, they are like bad policemen or judges who are making the enforcement of justice so difficult in Nigeria. Their shortcoming does not do the police force or the judiciary any good, but these acts do not detract from the imperative of both institutions. Midway through our democracy, we have time now to assess the situation on ground in terms of making our choice in the next elections. Vote for good men whether they are in Borno, Katsina, Sokoto or wherever. Vote for those who will protect your interest. This, Rev. Father, is the summary of everything I said and the tapes are there. I did not record our interview because I did not have the General's permission and in any case, it would have been wrong for me to do so. I have only tried to paraphrase what the General said to me base on quick notes I made and I hope I got him right on the essential thrust of what it was that he said. May be I have made my own mistakes in reading him. However, he was categorical that he did not say that Muslims should vote for only Muslims. After all, as he said again, even during the time of the Holy Prophet, there were non-Muslims just as there were unbelievers even in the time of Jesus Christ. He referred me to an Arewa House Lecture delivered by Alhaji Liman Ciroma, which raise the point that justice is more acceptable than a Muslim who governs unjustly! On the whole, it would seem that the General felt hurt by the comments and reactions to what he considered to be an innocent comment. But that is the way the cookie crumbles. I believe that I can make what I consider to be my own honest comments now that I have spoken to the General and heard his own story. The important thing to my mind is not so much a question of whether the General was telling me the truth or if with hindsight, he was presenting a revised version of his comments in the light predicament. I personally have no reason to believe that the General was reacting like a man trapped and therefore seeking discussions, but the tape recording of what I said is all there for anyone who wishes to watch it. I also imagine that anyone remotely familiar with the General would make two concessions. One that he would not doctor a comment base on what the public might think so as to receive acceptance. Secondly that General Buhari would consider it beneath him to come out defending himself. Anyone remotely familiar with the mind of a Northern Muslim would concede that the General would remain calm and philosophical, believing in the judgment of his conscience on the one hand, and that of Allah on the other. It might help to pose the question: did the General warrant the attack that was heaped on him by very senior statesmen and women? Why did our tribe of elder statesmen from whichever calling not find it fit to consult with one of their own before going to town? The inability of his critics to seek his own side of the story would seem to have bothered the General, as I understood him. What this issue raises for me is the way Nigerians generally react in the face of the public discourse on very sore but deeply important issues, especially religion. We all retreat into our cocoons of prejudice and from that comfort, we continue to throw stones at the centre, defending our own but also raising the tensions. The result is that we fail to realize the extent of the damage done to our institutions, causes and integrity. I know that many readers who have rather made up their minds and would rather remain in their lagers will accuse me of blindly supporting the General, pandering to the North, or even trivialising what they consider to be a serious issue. It might also be said that the General may have settled me, as is common with us whenever anyone dares to beat a track away from the popular and wide road tarred with prejudice. They will wonder why I have broken ranks with my own tribe when all good Christians ought to have stood on one side. Well, those who may be familiar with me would already know my antecedents, namely, I love a good fight and do not bow to blackmail or intimidation. I bow to truth as I see it until someone, no matter how small, shows me that there is a superior viewpoint. Indeed, as far I am concerned, Buhari issue could offer us another chance to contest and iron out some more serious national issues. I am familiar with the wider implication of religion and politics in other lands and this has been my area of research and discourse in the last few years. We are not the first to experience these tensions regarding the implications of religion in political choice. What makes these choices turn into weapons of destruction is the hostile environment with its attendant characteristics: poverty, squalor, illiteracy, hunger and want. A nation with these characteristics sees its population weakened and reduced to servitude and indignity. The citizens gradually fall back on patrons who then use the condition of their so-called constituency to engineer discontentment by raising the volume of the people's condition. The Patron (he is usually male, a chief, a fake appellation of Dr and a fake Sir, all titles he garners to compensate for his semi literate and modest credentials) is not so much concerned about the welfare of his people, for he requires that existing condition as a grazing field to satisfy his personal ambition and hold on to power. He uses this condition to negotiate with the state, which being largely uncaring about the general condition co-opts this patrons as one of its fellow negotiators (party member, an office-holder in the dispensation or of a member of the ruling council as the case may be). The patron then invents an identity for his people and builds a brick wall to stop them from both realising their conditions and negotiating with others in the larger society who may share their depressing conditions. The people are told that they are Hausas, Northerners, Muslims, Yorubas, Igbos, Urhobos or whatever. Their imagined ancestry, with no historical or anthropological basis, becomes the fig leaf for covering the nakedness of the patron's greed. When the people begin to experience the pain and it seems that they are likely to listen to the voice of reason (based on the sermon of those who have seen through this deceit), the people are told by their patron that they cannot contaminate the purity of their lineage. We, the descendants of so and so must remain united and stand together. If this identity has been hammered on the anvil of religion, the people are told that the new elite challenging the status quo is betraying the cause. The patron charges anyone exposing this hypocrisy with unbelief or at best those who have abandoned the true religion as ordained by God. This has been the philosophy driving the idea of we the Northerners, we the descendants of Oduduwa, we the Ndigbo and so on. Although these exclusivist identities make national integration impossible, these characters continue to make noise about the need for patriotism, national unity and peace. But they are a danger to both peace and justice. Unknown to those they claim to represent, they only have the interests of both themselves and their children in mind. The people fail to see that they have time now because all their children have been ferried to the best schools. You can see it when a chance presents itself at the center: it is their children that they put forward when these men of little honour sit down to gamble away our commonwealth. Yet there is the tendency of setting one group against the other when the conditions of poverty are explained away on the claims that our conditions are miserable because the North/ Muslims have cornered power, the Yorubas have cornered the economy or the Ndigbo have cornered the bureaucracy. The minorities of course are holding the can marked for the militias because there, life is nasty, it is also brutish and short. They constitute the fighting force and they are doing enough of that as we can see from the internal destructions within both the Northern and Southern minorities. The best of them in the militia tribe, sensing the threat of all this to national survival, have tended to take up arms. Historically, these coups, unless they install one who will sustain the tiny interests of the ruling classes across the board, do not succeed. When the coups threaten to take power from the ruling classes in order to address the issues of equity and create a home for all citizens, they are called failed coups and a chance is provided to eliminate the best from the tribe of the militia minorities. Then, the circle returns as the nation is call upon to spit on the grave of the unpatriotic lot. This has been the history of this nation. Even without arms, when the minorities have tried to raise public awareness to injustice, they have been found to be trying to sing outside the choir and their voices have been shut. The Ogonis are classic representation of this cause. The ferment in the Niger Delta is the best expression of these contradictions. The reaction to the Buhari saga shows in many respects the fact that we are still not out of the woods. Indeed, those who have argued with no supporting evidence that June 12th showed that we have overcome the politics of ethnic differences and regionalism have overstated their case. We still have a long way to go. For those who have resorted to Sharia to buy time and legitimacy, it is not clear yet whether the worst is still to come. But I have it on good authority from at least two highly placed Muslims from Katsina and Funtua that since the introduction of Sharia, the cost of alcohol has gone up by over two hundred per cent, in some places, much higher. I also hear that the price of kettles has gone up because the elite need at least two, one for real ablution and the other for storing alcohol. At the beginning of the 21st century, at a time when there is no nation in the world that is practicing Sharia at the level we crave for, the ruling elite in Northern Nigeria seemed determined to take a road that will lead to a cul-de- sac. This is not a judgment on the application of Sharia per se. I know that any and every honest Muslim knows that the Laws of God are written in our hearts. We do not need promulgations, proclamations or declarations to implement the love of God. The Iranians tried this road under ayatollah Khomeini. Today, many of the solders of the revolution have changed track and are in a quest for modernization. President Khatami is leading Iranians on the road of modernization. It is nonsense to argue that modernization undermines faith. It is the inability of the elite to respond to the challenges of modernization that create the problems. Modernization is not responsible for the greed and selfishness that face us. It is not responsible for the dubious claims that we make to religion while leaving a lie in realizing the ideals of religion, the liberation of the human person as God's creature…" CONCLUSION In the Holy Bible, it is written that "Ye shall know the Truth and the Truth shall save thee." Having presented the truth on General Buhari's position on religion and votes, it is hoped that the readers of this pamphlet will help to pass it on.Finally, I will quote from Proverbs in the Holy Book. 15.1. "A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grevious words stir anger…" 15.4. "A wholesome tongue is a tree of life; but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit…" 15.6. "In the house of the righteous is much treasure; but in the revenue of the wicked is trouble…" 15.33. "The fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom; and before honour is humility." Amen. Rev. Father Hassan Matthew Kukah

Timothy Over the past few years, I have reflected on life.... And I believe "Believe" is the title of a song written by Ronnie Dunn and Craig Wiseman, and recorded by American country music duo Brooks & Dunn. It was released in October 2005 as the second si Read more ...
ngle from their album Hillbilly Deluxe, and it won the Country Music Association's 2006 awards for Single of the Year and Music Video of the Year.[1] In the second verse, the narrator tells of how he discovered that Old Man Wrigley died shortly after he moved off to college. After discovering this, he reflects on his memories of the old man, stating that he felt that the man deserved to go to Heaven ("If there was ever anybody deserved a ticket to the other side / It'd be that sweet old man…"). The song's bridge then finds the narrator asserting his own faith as well while attending Old Man Wrigley's funeral. Old man Wrigley lived in that white house Down the street where I grew up Momma used to send me over with things We struck a friendship up I spent a few long summers Out on his old porch swing Said he was in the war when in the navy Lost his wife, lost his baby Broke down and asked him one time How ya keep from going crazy? He said I'll see my wife and son in just a little while I asked him what he meant He looked at me and smiled, said I raise my hands, bow my head I'm finding more and more truth In the words written in red They tell me that there's more to life Than just what I can see, oh I believe A few years later I was off at college Talkin' to mom on the phone one night Getting all caught up on the gossip The in's and out's of the small town life She said oh by the way son, old man Wrigley's died Later on that night I laid there thinkin' back Thought 'bout a couple long-lost summers I didn't know whether to cry or laugh If there was ever anybody Deserved a ticket to the other side It'd be that sweet old man Who looked me in the eye, said I raise my hands, bow my head I'm finding more and more truth In the words written in red They tell me that there's more to life Than just what I can see I can't quote the book The chapter or the verse You can't tell me it all ends In a slow ride in a hearse You know I'm more and more convinced The longer that I live Yeah, this can't be No, this can't be No, this can't be all there is When I raise my hands, bow my head Oh I'm finding more and more truth In the words written in red They tell me that there's more to this Than just what I can see I believe Oh, I, I believe I believe Mmm, I believe I believe Oh, I believe Mmm

Mohamed Here are some definitions from the scholars of nushuz when it is committed by the wife: "It is the woman leaving the house of her husband without his permission and keeping her husband from her without due right." "It is the woman departing from t Read more ...
he obligatory obedience to her husband, her preventing him from her in the bed, her leaving the house without his permission to a place that she knows he would not permit her to go, her leaving the rights of Allah upon her, such as performing the purification of ghusl or fasting Ramadan, and her locking the door on her husband, keeping him out." "It is the wife disobeying her husband elevating herself above what Allah has obliged upon her and her raising herself above fulfilling her obligatory duties." "It is the wife's disobedience of her husband concerning those acts of obedience that are obligatory upon her from the rights of marriage." "It is where the wife raises herself above her husband and she is diffident towards him in the sense that she does not obey him when he calls her to his bed or she leaves the house without his permission and so forth. It is when she withholds from him his right to her obedience." From all the different definitions, we see that nushuz on the part of the wife revolves around any of four characteristics: She does not beautify herself for her husband when he desires that from her. She disobeys her husband with respect to coming to his bed and she refuses to respond to his calls. She leaves the house without his permission or without any legal right to do so. She does not perform her obligatory religious duties, such as failure to perform some prayers, fasting Ramadan, covering her 'awra, or any other obligatory act of Islam.

ple, Benny Adejinle and Chief Mrs. Elizabeth Oyairo R.I.P.). I always remember them on this day. I plan to be in Church in the morning (its 3.30 a.m. right now) ... other than that, I don't have any other plans. Seems the wife and kids (even if they say I shouldn't call them kids anymore) are up to something. Over the past few days, I've noticed they have been talking in hushed tones anytime I am around, and when try to move closer, they effortlessly seem to change the subject. Since we always kind of discuss everything in this household generally, but suddenly don't want to talk about Dad's birthday. Ah ha! William Shakespeare said "There is no art to find the mind's construction on the face". I've tried to find out what is going on ... to no avail, however.

ls, and places of business. My minority privilege allows an assumption to be made that I don’t have any money for those stores, malls, and places of business I am at. My minority privilege allows me to seem “suspicious” by simply existing. My minority privilege allows an assumption to be made that I am inherently threatening. My minority privilege allows me to contemplate if my skin will effect me attaining a job. My minority privilege allows certain people to have an urge to cross the street when they see me coming (I like this one). My minority privilege allows me to get pulled over by the police, not be ticketed or cited for anything, and have the officer end the conversation by saying, “Stay out of trouble.” My minority privilege allows certain women to clutch their hideous hand-bags when I step into an elevator. My minority privilege allows certain people to suspiciously come up to me and ask, if I know where they can get the “hook-up”, while making a smoking like motion with their hand (and most of the time I do "hook them up") My minority privilege allows certain people to rather stand up on a full train, even though they see there is an open seat right next to me. My minority privilege allows people to believe, “I never met a black-guy like you before” is a compliment. My minority privilege affords my skin and hair, to be a platform so that others can feel develop self-esteem in opposition to it. My minority privilege taught me that black people never made any contributions to the world (Which isn't true). My minority privilege allowed 24 years of my life, to be dedicated to the history and values of people who do not resemble myself. My minority privilege affords me the ability to regularly see one black woman out of twenty, walk down the runway of a global industry that claims to represent beauty.

I have had people ask me how I do the things I do. Why do I take the risks I take? When I was younger my little sister had a best friend. Her best friend was 16 years old. She was like any other 16 year old just going to school learning about her lif Read more ...
e. She got her drivers license and within a few weeks of getting it she was driving her self to school one day. A driver in the opposite lane fell asleep at the wheel and hit her head on. She was killed instantly. She never even saw it coming. I had a friend that worked in web design. He was contacted by a female head hunter trying to hire him for a large firm. They negotiated for a few months and the job fell through. He ended up calling the woman he had been negotiating with a few months later to ask a couple questions. When he called the secretary on the other end of the line informed him the woman no longer worked there. When he asked why the secretary told him she passed away. He was shocked because the woman was only 33 years old. He asked what had happened and the secretary actually told him. It had happened quite recently and she was a bit upset about it. The woman had walked into work and just fainted. When people went over to check on her she had no pulse and she was not breathing. Because she was so young and her death was so sudden they did an autopsy on her. Turned out she had a brain aneurysm and it turned her off like a switch. These two stories help remind me that you have zero control over when you die. It can come at any moment. The real question isn't if you will die or even when. The real question is what are you going to do with that limited time you get to be alive...

ey problems a thing of the past. If you're not buying it, all hope is not lost. Thanks to Network Marketing, you can fix any hurt in a hurry. It is the one work from home type deal that rocks with potential, while having only a minimal learning curve. That was the good news. The bad news is that choosing the right company to hold hands with is no cake walk. There is a locker room full of criteria to consider before you pull the trigger on any deal... any of which can spell 'quick sand' if you're not careful. That's because you can fail even with a good company, if you are asked to do things that make you feel uneasy. Things like bugging people. Things like watching the smirks appear on the faces of your friends and family when you tell them what you're up to. So before you join the pilgrimage to Grand Canyon, come join the event that has everyone talking. Join the epic Bob Ganski mini webinar and learn how to identify what works, and what does not. Click to join the event in your local time zone. You do not want to miss this.
