Her remark has been fixed in my mind ever since I read it a few days ago. What I realize is the following: She thinks that ISIS is such an indomitable force that only Muslims can tackle it. Great honour for us Muslims of India. Thankfully some one remembere us in a good way - even if we have to stretch our imagination to arrive at this conclusion.

Actually not posting pictures on FB is one of those little things with which I assure myself of my connection with Allah (SWT). I might post one on my official page because of official commmitments. In the meanwhile do not worry about pictures. I case we end up meeting in person then you'll anyway have a glimpse of the original!. Cheer up.

Assalamu alaykum

 

Professor sahib:

I am hearing some good news from UP on Assembly elections results.

The ummah wakes up with some "jhinjodne se", (on being cornered).

Bihar bypoll results were also heartening.

Prof Sahib

The cause of debacle of bhaaji party could be:

Secular forces didn't fight against each other;

They were cornered, so Ummah got united this time and voted strategically. 

The Most important reason: my own analysis; it could be, the bhajees were scared for repeating the manipulation of v0ting masheens and getting exposed. They did that during previous polls. I told this to our leaders here. No one was listening.

Later after the results I met people from different regions, they were shocked; ummah dominated areas and numbers are with bhajees. It is happening and going to happen elsewhere also. So ummah should wake up and take the case to SC. Many developed western countries use paper ballot. Reason; manipulation possible in v0ting masheens. Since every political party is doing this, they won't fight for this cause.

An interesting Analysis is here:

 

Few can confound the political experts as marvellously as the Indian voter. Narendra Modi's sweeping victory in the May General elections had led many to predict a new era of one-party dominance, with the BJP sweeping all before it in the foreseeable future. The next few Assembly elections were written off in advance. The new Prime Minister himself told his student audience on Teacher's Day that his position was unchallengeable for at least ten years. Political pundits, whether in various opposition parties or pontificating in the media, began coming to terms with the seeming inevitability of continuing BJP triumphs, while the Opposition parties were described as being in various stages of disarray.

But once again, the Indian voter has had the last laugh.

The ink was barely dry on the Election Commission's general election returns when three by-elections in Uttarakhand gave the Congress party a stunning victory over its recent conquerors. The BJP, still celebrating its national triumph, didn't bother to make too many excuses, though it did imply that their party had been too busy with the big picture in Delhi to pay enough attention to three small bypolls. Even the Congress' celebrations at the time were muted, since we were still absorbing the shock of the national defeat.

This time, though, no comparable excuses are available. The BJP was literally trounced in Uttar Pradesh, the state in which it had swept all before it just four months ago. It lost 9 of 11 seats it contested; even more remarkably, these were seats that the BJP had held in the previous Assembly. There was no gloss possible on this repudiation: it was a direct rebuke from the very voters who had just put the party in power nationally.

At the same time, in Gujarat and Rajasthan, two states where the Congress had so recently drawn a blank in the Lok Sabha elections, the BJP surrendered ground to the former ruling party. In Gujarat, the Prime Minister's home state in which he was said to be invincible, the BJP lost two Assembly seats out of three. In Rajasthan, where the BJP had won a three-fourths majority in the Assembly just a few months ago and had swept every seat in the Lok Sabha polls, the BJP lost three out of four seats to the supposedly defeated and demoralised Congress.

The message from the Indian voter was clear: don't take us for granted.

And that the BJP had. It had basked in the complacency that comes from believing your own publicity. Having convinced the media that the BJP's continued rise and was irresistible and inevitable, it swallowed its own spin. Wallowing in the surf of the much-ballyhooed "Modi wave", it assumed that it just had to go through the motions, and victory would follow. The Prime Minister, enjoying his new-found international networking, didn't even bother to campaign.

But the "Man of the Match" in the Lok Sabha triumph in UP, newly-anointed party President Amit Shah, did. And there lay the second message from the Indian voter: polarization won't work every time.

Amit Shah and his acolytes had convinced themselves that the atmosphere of communal hatred engendered by the Muzaffarnagar riots had worked in the BJP's favour in the parliamentary polls, by consolidating majority Hindu opinion behind the BJP. Accordingly, they promoted further polarization in Uttar Pradesh in advance of these bypolls. The virulent bigotry of Yogi Adityanath, Sakshi Maharaj and similarsaffron-robed political leaders was unleashed. Nearly 600 episodes of communal violence occurred in Uttar Pradesh, mainly near the places where the by-elections were to be held. The spectre of "Love jihad" wasspawned as the new bogey to dread.

The tactic was crude - "if you hate or fear minorities, rally around the BJP" was the unspoken subtext - but in a country where religious sensibilities are easily aroused, it was assumed to be effective.

It proved not to be.

The UP voter instead voted overwhelmingly for the party that the BJP had caricatured as the poster child of minority appeasement, the Samajwadi Party of Mulayam Singh Yadav. Those who had thought that the 2014 elections marked the beginning of the end for regional parties in Indian politics have had their comeuppance too.
Memo to Amit Shah: the Indian voter doesn't like being taken for granted. The Indian voter doesn't like appeals to the basest elements of human nature. The Indian voter voted for Modi's message of development and jobs, not for Adityanath's hate-filled religious sermonizing. And the UP voter preferred to trust a local party than a complacent national Goliath.

There's more. Your party wrote off the Opposition, particularly the Samajawadi Party and the Congress Party, and has just discovered -- as Mark Twain observed when he saw his obituary in the newspaper --that reports of their demise were exaggerated. There might have been a Modi wave in the general elections, but the wave has receded from the shoreline. Mr Shah,it's time to step off the surfboard and get back to the drawing board.

The platitudes will flow, in the inevitable punditrywe all have to endure as the price of following politics. Wake-up call. Time for introspection. Need for course-correction. My own thought, as someone who has deplored the BJP's complicity in raising the communal temperature and regretted Mr Modi's silence on the subject, is a somewhat non-political one. Love works much better than jihad. Maybe you should try it, Mr Shah?

Another message:

 

The strongest message from voters in the latest round of bypolls in Uttar Pradesh is this: “Let us be. Don’t tinker with the idea of India. Don’t impose on us your perverse interpretation of the world around. We don’t want to be party to your hate games.”
 
The timing of the message could not have been better. It came at a juncture when fringe Hindutva elements had started running amok across the country with their hate agenda. Had the BJP won handsomely in UP, it could have been accorded them some sort of legitimacy and encouraged them to go reckless.
 
BJP MP Yogi Adityanath was accused of polarising voters with his alleged hate speeches.
 
The first slap delivered, the wider society should ask the Hindutva hounds the logical questions: who are your real target – the Muslims and other minorities or the liberal Hindus who accept the plurality of the country and have no problems with its syncretic tradition?
“…recurrent instances of religious tension fanned by fanaticism and hate speech have shown that the Hindu tradition of tolerance is showing signs of strain. And let me say this frankly — my apprehension is that Hinduism is somehow changing its benign face…,” said eminent jurist Fali S Nariman at a lecture on the subject of minorities recently. Nariman feels a few members of the majority community now believe and proudly proclaim that it is because of their faith and belief that Hindus have been put in the driving seat of governance.

Professor sahib:

Rarely we hear news like this.

AMU doctors repair punctured heart in absence of a specialised machine


News18 | Sun Sep 21, 2014 | 09:30 IST

#Aligarh #Uttar Pradesh Despite the absence of a heart-lung machine in the premises, a team of doctors of Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College managed to fix a punctured heart of a man, who happened to damage his heart, lung lung during an explosion while repairing a refrigerator compressor.

Successfully performing a rare heart surgery in a hospital which was not equipped with the heart-lung machine, doctors under the leadership of MH Beg, who heads the department of cardiothoracic surgery in the Aligarh Muslim University, believe the operation was tough because it was done on a beating heart.
Shakir, a 35-year-old mechanic and resident of Aligarh was working on the damaged compressor of a refrigerator, when it exploded. A piece of steel pierced his heart and left his lung damaged too. He was immediately rushed to the hospital. Shakir is now recuperating.

According to a report published in Times of India, Mohd Azam Haseen, assistant professor of cardiothoracic surgery, who assisted in the operation, told media persons, "When we operate a heart that beats, we have a strict time limit. It is best to complete the surgery in the shortest possible time, as the bleeding heart also starts to tear, and becomes hard to repair. Such surgeries are easier on the still heart, but we do not have those advanced bypass machines called the heart-lung machine. Hopefully, by next year our medical college will have such advanced equipment."

AMU doctors repair punctured heart in absence of a specialised machine

A heart-lung machine can cost upward of Rs 70 lakh, the doctor said. "This case was special. We completed the surgery in two-and-a-half hours and referred him to Delhi. In Aligarh and nearby areas, there are no hospitals equipped to conduct surgery on a still heart. And we could not put off the intervention, because he would otherwise have died on the way to Delhi," Haseen explained.
The normal cost of a similar operation in a private hospital would have been more than about Rs2 lakh, the doctor said. At JN Medical College, it was performed for Rs 20,000.

Doctors expressed surprise that with such a grave injury, Shakir was able to reach the hospital.

Regarding Political Situation: The RSS imbeciles are, as usual, at their dirty games but my personal feeling is that the peak of their glory has passed. Muslims of India may still have to pay some price but Inshaa Allah they should wake up soon. Indeed these are my hopes but I also feel that this is an accurate assessment of reality.

Regarding AMY Medicos' Success: Inshaa Allah our medicos will soon be regarded as the best stuff in the world. We are nowhere near that goal but things are moving in that direction.

The way old SFers are irritated at the non-functioning of SF in a similar way many believers get frustrated at the things that are not available in the present day Tasawwuf market.

Their frustration is understandable.
That is how the things should be.
If something that is necessary is not available we should indeed get frustrated.
It is normal.

But is that frustration an excuse to start abusing those things and people that are vailable?

Jihad sector is one such example that is Halaal, allowed but not available with the Mystic store.
The Tasawwuf collective does not, in the present day situation cater to that need.
And let us not forget that it is obligatory to provide for needs.

But just because some items are not available in the Tasawwuf store is no reason to start venting against the system.

Some one asked Hazrat Thanwi (RA) why you do not indulge in political activity like Hazrat Madani (RA).

He said,"Where from can I bring thae courage required to do that?'

If some item is missing from our favourite store then let us not reject the store and try to be the person that provided for that need.

Take the resppnsibility for completing the Deen at your own expanses rather than expecting others to do that.

For example Maradrsa people irritate this sinner by not talking about taking care of political needs of Ummah in India.
That does not mean that I should start a movement against them.
It only means that I should do something to take care of that department.
It is as simple as that.

We should take note of it and appreciate it.

Temple in India is washed after Head of state visits temple in India


A temple in Bihar was apparently cleaned and the idol washed after Bihar Chief Minister Jitan Ram Manjhi paid a visit there.

The temple is located in Madhubani district's Parmeswaristan, 160 km from the state capital Patna.

"I was invited there by the people. But after leaving I was told that the idols in the temple were washed," said Mr Manjhi, who belongs to the Mahadalit or the most backward castes.

"I don't blame them (the people) for this act, because their values are these, not ours. Now I want to complain about this act as it is not a class bias, it is caste bias," he added.

The man who tipped him off about the clean-up act was Ramlakhan Ram Raman, a senior cabinet minister, the Chief Minister said.

But Mr Raman, who belongs to the Dalit community, has denied telling the Chief Minister any such thing. "This is not in my knowledge," he categorically told NDTV.
