Athira… and the violence of conversion

Athira… and the violence of conversion

Miscellaneous
Credit:- This is a repost of the article that came in PGurus.com "I didn’t know anything about my own faith and so I could not give them any responses to their accusations" Yesterday, Janam TV, a Malayalam channel, carried the press conference called by Athira, a victim of the Love Jihad that has the people of Kerala alarmed these days. Though Athira’s case is strictly not one of Love Jihad, it has been treated in common parlance as being of the same category. Athira, a girl who was lured into Islam by various means turned away from it and the press conference she called yesterday was to tell her story. The video is a poignant one and it is embedded here. Please click on the captions option to view the subtitles. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=clhtoJyP70k The video is su

Sufism in India – A bloodied History

My Dear Muslims — Part 1 : Let’s Together Reinspect the Idea of a Judging Allah

Miscellaneous
Every quite often i run into debates with Muslims (usually Indian muslims) on FB or Twitter which are about discussing the nature of God / Allah. I run into the same arguments over and over again, and i in return endlessly argue against the same things over and over again. This is a compilation of all the arguments i usually hear about the nature of Allah, and my arguments for a more liberal and unconditionally loving view of the creator. Whether there is a creator or no is beyond the scope of this series of post, and the audience here is not atheists but rather devout Muslims (and even Catholics). I must confirm that some ideas and questions presented here might sound not worthy of a thinking adult to be delving into; but you must understand that every so often i come across Comput...
