Mike Ghouse, President of the Center said, “We are not a perfect union yet, but a perfect union we will be, as we can continue our efforts to be an inclusive society. The Fourth of July should not simply come and go; we must make it a remarkable day. It should be a great happening to augment National Integration, where Americans of all faiths, or no faith, races, ethnicities, nationalities, political, sexual and other orientations come together to celebrate the oneness of our nation. “

BJP’s Piyush Goyal said Quran will be in public service in UP?
Within one year, Uttar Pradesh will be erected with 100% electricity.
Did you hear differently?
Understanding the Essence of Islam
Islam remains a myth to many people who are not Muslims, not because it is complicated, but simply because its purpose and its role in society were rarely explained.
Tarek Fatah and Indian Muslims at odds

There are two sides to the conflict and am pleased to present both views.
Fatah is as intolerant as the people who mistreated him. He cannot handle criticism and that is his greatest weakness. He is known to cut you off from his facebook page, yahoogroups or other social media if you differ with him.
The guy is trapped in the net cast by the right leaning groups and is too eager to appease them, and of course delivers the words they want to hear. He validates the stereotyping of Muslims for them. All the while, he relishes the thrills in vexing those few Muslims.
The right groups’ hypocrisy is incredible. They want to throw out the Pakistani players and singers but they love the Pakistani bashers. As Mahmood in the film Padosan says, “Ek pay rehnaji”. Tarek Fatah is their man who bashes Pakistan and also Muslims. They got two in one devil. What has happened to the integrity?
I urge Muslims to be Muslims and see how you earn respect from fellow humans. Be the Amins of the society and be the conflict mitigaters and goodwill nurturers.
We don’t like anyone from the majority to silence us, but we are doing the same to others who differ from us. We need to clean up ourselves from the duplicity. Our inside and out should be the same.
Harassment of Tarek Fatah is not acceptable; this is a dangerous trend of silencing people. People like Taslima Nasreen, and Tarek Fatah have come and gone, but the bad behavior of those few Muslims make all of us look bad.
God, Quran and the Prophet are not going to disappear because someone criticizes them, they are here forever. Instead of fighting with them, we need to fight with ourselves in finding the answers to their criticism. Over the years, I have accepted ugly challenges from men and women who attacked these; I’ve studied many versions of translations and have taken up challenges from the rough rods.
The right thing to do is challenge Tarek Fatah to a debate, be prepared to lose, he is very knowledgeable. Getting angry at him or simply quoting Hadith won’t cut it; he will make you look like a fool when he points out that it is not a legitimate quote. Study the wisdom of the Hadiths but please beware of the fake Hadiths that go against God’s qualities of Rahman and Rahim and justice. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is a mercy to mankind, and if a Hadith shows him to be unkind and a misogynist, it is a fake Hadith.
God bless you.

Now his daughter’s passport is stamped Born in Mecca, Saudi Arabia!
Some of my fellow Indian Americans are pushing the US Congressmen to declare Pakistan as a Terrorist State without realizing that they are so stupid and selfish. In their endless hate for Pakistan, they are sticking a knife in the back of fellow Indians whose passport bears Pakistan as the place of birth.
Many of my Indian Hindu American friends, the prominent ones, were born in Karachi and Lahore. Some tried to change Lahore, Pakistan to Lahore, India. That would be even more dangerous. The imbecile immigration officer like the one in the story link below would be so proud to catch them, because the only thing he may know is Lahore is in Pakistan and this guy may have fake passport. Even if Indians change the birth place in the passport to avoid this, that would be even a bigger threat. You cannot go wrong if you are honest and you cannot go wrong if are a peace monger with neighbors instead of a hate monger.
One of our fellow Indians was shot dead and another one severely injured in Kansas this last week. This has shaken me to my core. Some of the men who are roaming the streets have no idea who is what; anything that is brown is a threat to them. You and I may be safe in some areas, but there are areas where you and I and that idiot Shelli Kumar (talking about the well known ones) are meaningless to the man who is angry. This man Kumar and a few Indians in Dallas are hate peddlers, and I hope the law of Karma works on all such people who thrive on selling hate to fellow Indians.
This reckless behavior is happening in India too, I have seen a few videos where Christian men were being beaten up for no reason, Muslim and Dalit women were harassed. These thugs in India and America are making all Indians and all Americans look bad, just as some damned terrorist make all Muslims look bad. Remember evil exists not because of a few evil men, but because good men don’t do anything about it.
The least you can do is speak up against bad acts of a few people. No person with evil thoughts, hatred for others or ill-will be free from the clutches of Karma.
Read this story, a French White man was born in Egypt and was harassed. Even if you have paid money to Trump campaign, no one will come to you if are detained and chained in the airport. It could happen to you and happen to me.
