India! I dare you to be rich

Category: Current Affairs

It is time for Muslims (even Wahabis) to assemble, to fight the ISIS. This evil won’t go away on its own.

I hope my Muslim friends (I have many, on Facebook) will now pay heed to the ISIS's ultra-Islamic agenda and try to understand how it is being driven by ISLAM, not by any fictitious American/Israeli intervention (yes!, some have even suggested to me that Israel has created ISIS! How terribly misinformed can one get).

So here's the problem. 

These people (ISIS) are GENUINE Muslims, following the Koran to the last word, exactly as it was intended.

If you go to them and preach alternative views (as one Muslim friend has proposed here), it won't work with them.

But this is not the first time the Muslim world has seen such a fight between fundamentalists and the moderates. It is an ongoing, cyclical phenomenon. India had Aurangzeb (but also had Akbar, for instance).

The solution is also clear: these extremists have to be given ACTUAL (physical) battle, and decapacitated. They can't be fought ideologically. And they can't be (and should NEVER be) fought by Americans or Western powers.

If the West directly enters the battlefield, it will merely promote the growth of the ISIS.

The battle needs to be fought WITHIN THE MUSLIM WORLD.

In the face of the ISIS brand of Islam, even the Wahabi brand looks rather moderate! All these people (moderates, and even Wahabis) need to organise an army of Muslims to fight ISIS.

I'm sorry, but I don't think such ideological battles within religions can get fixed without physical war. The level of brainwashing among the ISIS folk can't be undone thorough discussion or persuasion.

The fight for liberty will have to wait the resolution of these religious fights. The journey for the liberation of mankind is going to be long and tedious. Religion is one heck of an obstacle to human progress.

ISIS’s ultra-Islamic world: slavery, crucifixtion, cutting off hands, jizya. AND the return of Christ – to save the Muslims!

Things are looking bad for the world, with the rise of the ISIS and the so-called "true" Islam. I'm making note of some dramatic points from Graeme Wood's article, below. Bolding, title, colour annotations mine.

The situation clearly started with someone taking their Koran too seriously. Now it will probably not end well – for them. If it was not such a terrible thing to read about, one might even have a bit of a laugh at the whole thing, so amusing is this idea of reviving 7th century customs in a modern world. 

And of Christ himself coming back to lead the Muslims to glory! As they say these days, "lol".


“Slavery, crucifixion, and beheadings are not something that freakish [jihadists] are cherry-picking from the medieval tradition,” Haykel said. Islamic State fighters “are smack in the middle of the medieval tradition and are bringing it wholesale into the present day.”

"The Koran specifies crucifixion as one of the only punishments permitted for enemies of Islam. The tax on Christians finds clear endorsement in the Surah Al-Tawba, the Koran’s ninth chapter, which instructs Muslims to fight Christians and Jews “until they pay the jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.” The Prophet, whom all Muslims consider exemplary, imposed these rules and owned slaves."

when the Islamic State began enslaving people, even some of its supporters balked. Nonetheless, the caliphate has continued to embrace slavery and crucifixion without apology. “We will conquer your Rome, break your crosses, and enslave your women,” Adnani, the spokesman, promised in one of his periodic valentines to the West. “If we do not reach that time, then our children and grandchildren will reach it, and they will sell your sons as slaves at the slave market.”  [Sanjeev: Surely these people are EXTREME nuts!]

In October, Dabiq, the magazine of the Islamic State, published “The Revival of Slavery Before the Hour,” an article that took up the question of whether Yazidis (the members of an ancient Kurdish sect that borrows elements of Islam, and had come under attack from Islamic State forces in northern Iraq) are lapsed Muslims, and therefore marked for death, or merely pagans and therefore fair game for enslavement. A study group of Islamic State scholars had convened, on government orders, to resolve this issue. If they are pagans, the article’s anonymous author wrote,

Yazidi women and children [are to be] divided according to the Shariah amongst the fighters of the Islamic State who participated in the Sinjar operations [in northern Iraq] … Enslaving the families of the kuffar [infidels] and taking their women as concubines is a firmly established aspect of the Shariah that if one were to deny or mock, he would be denying or mocking the verses of the Koran and the narrations of the Prophet … and thereby apostatizing from Islam.


Before the caliphate, “maybe 85 percent of the Sharia was absent from our lives,” Choudary told me. “These laws are in abeyance until we have khilafa”—a caliphate—“and now we have one.” Without a caliphate, for example, individual vigilantes are not obliged to amputate the hands of thieves they catch in the act. But create a caliphate, and this law, along with a huge body of other jurisprudence, suddenly awakens.


The caliph is required to implement Sharia. Any deviation will compel those who have pledged allegiance to inform the caliph in private of his error and, in extreme cases, to excommunicate and replace him if he persists. (“I have been plagued with this great matter, plagued with this responsibility, and it is a heavy responsibility,” Baghdadi said in his sermon.) In return, the caliph commands obedience—and those who persist in supporting non-Muslim governments, after being duly warned and educated about their sin, are considered apostates.

The Islamic State differs from nearly every other current jihadist movement in believing that it (ISIS) is written into God’s script as a central character. It is in this casting that the Islamic State is most boldly distinctive from its predecessors, and clearest in the religious nature of its mission.


After its battle in Dabiq, Cerantonio said, the caliphate will expand and sack Istanbul. Some believe it will then cover the entire Earth, but Cerantonio suggested its tide may never reach beyond the Bosporus. An anti-Messiah, known in Muslim apocalyptic literature as Dajjal, will come from the Khorasan region of eastern Iran and kill a vast number of the caliphate’s fighters, until just 5,000 remain, cornered in Jerusalem. Just as Dajjal prepares to finish them off, Jesus—the second-most-revered prophet in Islam—will return to Earth, spear Dajjal, and lead the Muslims to victory.

Something even more sinister is afoot: the delusion of an Apocalypse, in Islam

It is very hard to understand why Islam is becoming so violent these days. There was a time (particularly in India) when saints like Kabir flourished. There was a strong spirituality and everyone sought the best from each other's religion. Muslims have been a highly respected part of Indian society for hundreds of years (except sporadically), till British rule actively divided communities to shrink India's potential post-independence power (they have succeeded very well splitting India into shreds). 

But today, it is becoming very hard to get Muslims to even acknowledge the problem, leave along work out a way to solve the problem. I've left a debate on FB (here) since these people now insist that it is the USA that is arming the ISIS! What a crazy idea! How can people go so wrong?


I'm glad one Muslim has accepted this truth, a lady by the name Anooshe Mushtaq. I quote extracts from her article in The Australian, today. What she points to is about something really sinister brewing in Islam: a view the the Apocalypse is upon us. Sure: the Muslims ARE creating an apocalypse for many innocent humans, and yes they will BURN IN HELL (Sadly, there is no hell, but these evil monsters deserve to burn eternally, such is the level of evil they are demonstrating on a daily basis). 

Well, if this is the ideology of the ISIS, then the remedy is clear: All sane elements within Islam should take over and remove this ridiculous myth.

Believe it or not, Islam central to radicalisation and ISIS
JUNE 27, 2015

I am a Muslim female who was born in an Islamic country and lived most of my life in Australia.

Many Muslim migrants experience Western culture as corrupt, threatening their cultural and ­religious heritage. 

It is clear the issue of radicalisation is of national prominence, but how well do the government, commentators and the public understand it? 

My family migrated to Australia in 1985. A few years after migration, I was invited to attend a Muslim youth camp that was organised by the Lakemba and Melbourne mosques. The focus of the camp was to reinforce the faith of attendees in Wahhabi Islam. The strong message was that the Muslim youth at the camp represented traditional Islam and as a result were the “chosen ones”.

The message I heard at the camp was that Allah wanted the youth to be his ambassadors. Therefore, their duty was to change “corrupt society” by spreading the name of Allah…. Assimilating into the Australian way of life at that time was frowned upon.  Similar Muslim youth camps are still run today.

There has been extensive research seeking to understand Islamic State’s ideology and why it is attracting followers. Graeme Wood’s insightful piece in The Atlantic, “What ISIS Really Wants”, observes that “Islamic State is no mere collection of psychopaths. It is a religious group with carefully considered beliefs, among them that it is a key agent of the coming Apocalypse.” … Islamic State is devoutly religious and its core strategy is based on its understanding of Islamic teachings on the Apocalypse.

Wood argues that attempts to label Islamic State as “not Islamic” — a tactic frequently used by politicians ­attempting to express solidarity with mainstream Muslims — fundamentally miss the point. Islamic State is very Islamic.

Islamic State follows the Wahhabi sect of Islam.

Islam shares the concept of the Apocalypse with Judaism and Christianity. As strange as it sounds … Islamic State’s belief that the Apocalypse is imminent is key to its appeal and the success of its radicalisation messages. 

There are 12 major signs of the Apocalypse in Sura al-Qiyamah. … Islamic State propaganda seeks to convince the Muslim diaspora the Apocalypse is near and they should return to the caliphate lest they be judged unrighteous on the Day of Judgment. 

The propaganda is laden with religious symbolism and hidden meanings, drawing on teachings from the Koran and cultural traditions dating back a thousand years. Every word and act is carefully chosen to convince those reared in the Muslim tradition that the caliphate is true and the Apocalypse is coming. What seems medieval, or even pointless to nonbelievers, is designed to demonstrate to Muslims that Islamic State is legitimate and believers should return before the Day of Judgment.

I will await your answers Rafiq Lasne to my first comment…do enlighten me with your pearls of wisdom.


The youtube episode first.Neil Cavuto was interviewing Kissinger. Extracts from the ISIS transcript below:

2:05 Neil Cavuto Let's switch gears to ISIS.  …  Do you agree that ISIS has the upper hand?

2:24 Kissinger: The fundamental problem is that ISIS has about 30,000 irregulars. They are not technical trained to fight. They have only the heavy equipment that they capture from us, or from forces that we have armed. If they can stand up to American opposition and to American airpower and if we can find no way to defeat them, every day that they stay in the field will look to the local region and maybe to [?] as the American inability to deal with the mortal threat. This will generate volunteers and make the subsequent prosecution of the war more difficult.

So Kissinger has NOWHERE EVEN REMOTELY implied that "ISIS gets its weapons from the USA". This idea is idiotic in the EXTREME. Just putting a headline that is ENTIRELY FALSE doesn't make it true.

Second, I had clearly noted that Muslims are killing Muslims. That doesn't prove that Islam is a religion of peace.

I'm merely asking Muslims to ACKNOWLEDGE that Islam is NOT a religion of peace, or is not seen as such by many of its own followers. Once such an acknowledgement is made, things can change.

I urge Muslims to stop telling us that Islam is a religion of peace. Evidence points against such a claim. #1

I posted a few comments today on FB. Links below:

Muslims against Muslims

Muslims against everyone else

What do these mad Muslims hope to achieve?

What do these mad Muslims hope to achieve? That the world will learn to love Islam through these random killings? That people will believe the LAME claim of some Muslims that Islam is a "religion of peace"?

Do these people forget how Gandhi achieved respect across the world? Not through killing but through forbearance.
And that mythical Jesus (he never existed) is respected by everyone even as the Popes (most of them extremely corrupt, self-seeking and violent) are condemned.

If Islam does not teach non-violence and forbearance, the **entire** religion must be condemned.

This nightmare of the Muslim world taking upon itself to randomly kill people can only end with the end of Islam. Or its total transformation into a religion of peace.


Muslims may wish to recognise this problem

I need to hear from Muslims a RECOGNITION of the problem within their religion. That it is generating BEASTS at an alarming rate. And I don't mean animals (who are the most respect-worthy creatures on earth; – and that includes the reviled pigs), but devils: humans with a mind that is so perverted and distorted with evil, that they do not have any claim to be human any more.

Only once this problem is recognised can any solution be found.

Constantly asserting that "Islam is a religion of peace" is simply not going to work.

There is something inside the SOUL of Islam that creates a culture of deep disrespect for human life, among some. That something has to be identified and nipped, discarded. Publicly identified and discarded.

No religion whose followers ***frequently*** resort to suicide bombings and mass, random killings, can lay claim to be a "religion of peace". [See:]

A Facebook friend shared the above and faced a somewhat unpleasant response:

Lead poisoning is a necessary outcome of socialism. Indians, please enjoy your lead poisoning.

This is the best article so far on the Maggi lead poisoning issue.

The author is on the money. Except that he missed the most basic point: the total failure of India's governance. As I've explained ad nauseam, this failure arises from socialist policies and socialist system/s of administration. I don't see any point in repeating (since Indians seem to enjoy poverty and lead poisoning), but if any India does wish to get a clean and healthy environment they would need to adopt capitalism and the associated models of governance. A lot of details are provided in the Sone Ki Chidiya total reform agenda, and my my books/ articles.
