The Free Arabs - Islam in Arab Countries

So here I go again. My topic  is Islam in Arab countries. You might think, here I am ranting my 'Islamophobic' rants here on my blog. You might think, that since I don't like a few things, and I honestly come out in the open saying so, rather than conspiring behind everyone's backs, I no longer have the right to live. Well, maybe, but today this post is going to be something different. I recently watched a number of videos and came across some well meaning individuals and groups that are a beacon of humanity amid the barbarism and stone age mentality of the middle eastern fundamentalists. This post is about those free people who wish to remain just that - free.

Islam in Arab countries is perceived to be highly politicized, radical that permits and encourages barbaric practices that are completely opposed to the requirements of basic human rights and dignity. Values that go against the very basic principles of life are promoted with divine sanction. The image is true and to a very large extent is justified. But in this chaos and hatred for Jews, Christians, apostates, Hindus, Lesser Muslims, etc etc there is another small group that tries to survive. They have not got almost any attention. In fact I will tell you how I got to know about it. Actually you will know how difficult it is to find them independently. They have obviously not received any patronage from the Government of their countries. They are not even on the radar of the other free-er countries. But theirs is the voice that needs to be heard if militancy is to be removed. They are the antidote. If Islam in Arab countries is ever to get rid of terrorism, they are our only hope.

Alaa Wardi is an independent a capella singer from Iran who now lives in Saudi Arabia. He is just like any of us apparently. He sings, he dances, he drinks(!) and he lives just as you and I would. But the problem is this free living is not legal in Saudi Arabia or even Iran for that matter. But there he goes, he sings, he entertains and makes other people happy. Just like any singer does.
Take for example in this song above - he blasts the diktats that are imposed upon him, without his permission. And to protest he does exactly what he is told not to do. Very powerful. In case I am wrong, please do correct me.



This song is more than just his views but also much more than that. Tells you about the shackling of freedom and his frustrations. This song is no longer in his own channel - perhaps you can guess under whose pressure. In any case I am just speculating, he may have removed it himself without any pressure whatsoever.

You can check this singer singing.



She has got an awesome voice. She sings defying the death chanting mullahs. She is braver than us. Any day.

Or check this hilarious 'Fatwa Show' where ridiculous fatwas are re-acted to mock them. The intention is not vilify faith but point out that people should decide what to do and what not to, rather than be dictated by others.

It is just 

Or check this guy out. He talks about the abuse of Islam and how he is not defined by Islam but humanity. In his speeches he talks a lot about Islam in Arab countries and some them are indeed extremely provocative.


I will write more on this topic so stay tuned. Head out for this Youtube channel. I am sure you will feel that all is not lost. Peace.

Sri Sri & Homosexuality – Another media hit job in the making

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar (henceforth named as Mr. Shankar) is not new to controversy. Not even with topics like homosexuality. What the event was At an event in the Jawaharlal Nehru University, Ravi Shankar gave a talk on the occasion of the Nehru Memorial lecture on 13 th November, 2017. One among the audience lamented that he was ill-treated since he was known to be a homosexual. Then Mr. Shankar stated that he needed to accept himself as he was and love knew no boundaries. Let’s see and hear what he said… Let’s quote Mr. Shankar verbatim as reported by some of the newspapers . ‘ You treat yourself better, doesn’t matter how others treat you. You don’t think you are sick or something’s wrong with you. If you stand up, nobody can insult you… But if you feel weak and meek, and if you feel bad about yourself, nobody can make you feel better.’ Indian Express reported this in addition as well. Let me quote it directly here as well. ‘ This is your tendency now. Just ack

Operation Situation Report Summary - Ukraine 4 March

 Defense Without Strategy Ukraine seems to be hell bent on fighting a static war without almost any flexibility. Their forces may be valiant and defiant, but without a coherent strategy, the best they can hope for is to prolong their own suffering WITHOUT significantly hurting the enemy. Here is how the situation stands as of now. Kherson has fallen. The front in the South was decisively broken day before yesterday with the capture of the railway station and port. Naturally, the Russian forces did not wait and moved straight North to Mykolaiv. All UA forces on the Dnepr facing South are likely to be outflanked. Unless the Russian spearheads are cut off and destroyed in a day or two, it will be too late. The fall of the entire South seems to be inevitable.  To extricate the forces, UA should have withdrawn forces from other sectors (including far away Donetsk front). Now, the best they can try is to win time to reinforce Kyiv. Kharkov is almost surrounded. This battle seems to be fought
