That Day When Kashmir Was Occupied

62 years ago on this day (October 27, 1947) India landed its army at Srinagar airport to occupy Kashmir. The disaster would have happened, but could have not continued, if the political foot soldiers, like the one mentioned below, had not been first cultivated by the Indian state. While narrating the events of 1947 in his autobiography 'My Life and Times'(1992: Allied Publishers, New Delhi, India, p39)The late Syed Mir Qasim, once a puppet chief minister of Kashmir, and himself a front-ranking foot soldier, writes::

"...As they [Indian Army] landed at the airport some of them killed a few Muslims. This shocked and infuriated the local people who were there to welcome the Indian army as their savior. The shocked people thought of carrying their dead ones to Jamia Mosque in a procession. This could have created an uncontrollable situation and turned the people's anger against India instead of the invaders and perhaps could have given a different direction to the history of Kashmir. No Kashmiri leader, including Sheikh Abdullah, could possibly stem this uprising. But Khawaja Ghulam Mohiuddin Qarra intervened and managed to stop the procession at Lal Chowk. He talked the mob out of its procession plan so convincingly that one of them stood up to shout that his son was among those dead, but he would sacrifice another son if Khawja Qara so demanded. The mob was pacified..."

The two foot soldiers, one who is talking and the other who is being talked about, both are no more. Gone from this world after breathing in their allocated volume of Oxygen. However, the misery their actions, as well as of those like them, brought still persists. We have to take on the burden, do what best we can to end the misery, and secure the future of coming generations.

Can Christians Drink Alcohol?

Recently I had a chance to visit Singapore. A really nice place for the materialistic homo sapien of this age. One thing I want to mention is that their public bathrooms dont have running water. And the best thing is that many of you in the so called "developed countries" might laugh at my observation (maybe because 'no-water' common in their lands-get a life fellows.). Ugghh!! So called Developed White Man..

I happened to visit a very popular place called Merlion Park. Its a place where people come and look at the mighty structure of the lion-mermaid thingy which is like the symbol of Singapore.

The Merlion..

There was like a big chain of bars nearby, happy white people driniking to their fill. I started thinking, " Foolish People ". Then I realised, did their religion really permit them to drink, or is it that the "ever-changed-Christianity" didnt even speak about drinking.

Once again, with a question in my mind, I looked up the internet. (Call me the modern researcher), and once again I am not too sure of the source as I couldnt look up the real texts and confirm with what is there in the internet. So I trust the internet (Not Recommended.. hehe)


Islam does not permit having alcohol in any form:



يَسۡـَٔلُونَكَ عَنِ ٱلۡخَمۡرِ وَٱلۡمَيۡسِرِ‌ۖ قُلۡ فِيهِمَآ إِثۡمٌ۬ ڪَبِيرٌ۬ وَمَنَـٰفِعُ لِلنَّاسِ وَإِثۡمُهُمَآ أَڪۡبَرُ مِن نَّفۡعِهِمَا‌ۗ وَيَسۡـَٔلُونَكَ مَاذَا يُنفِقُونَ قُلِ ٱلۡعَفۡوَ‌ۗ كَذَٲلِكَ يُبَيِّنُ ٱللَّهُ لَكُمُ ٱلۡأَيَـٰتِ لَعَلَّڪُمۡ تَتَفَكَّرُونَ

Qur'an 2:219

They ask thee concerning wine (strong drink) and gambling.
Say: "In them is great sin and some profit for men;
but the sin is greater than the profit."




Question:

"Is there any indication that Jesus drank alcohol? Can Christians drink alcohol?"



Answer:
The Bible is very clear that drunkenness is a sin:
"Let us behave decently, as in the daytime, not in orgies and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and debauchery, not in dissension and jealousy." (Romans 13:13)

"But now I am writing you that you must not associate with anyone who calls himself a brother but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or a slanderer, a drunkard or a swindler. With such a man do not even eat." (1 Corinthians 5:11)

"Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God." (1 Corinthians 6:9-10)

"The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God." (Galatians 5:19-21)

"Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit." (Ephesians 5:18)

"For you have spent enough time in the past doing what pagans choose to do--living in debauchery, lust, drunkenness, orgies, carousing and detestable idolatry. They think it strange that you do not plunge with them into the same flood of dissipation, and they heap abuse on you. But they will have to give account to him who is ready to judge the living and the dead." (1 Peter 4:3-5)





I hope you have read that my brothers.. Comments are welcome as always.

China Gives visas to Kashmiris but not on Indian Passport





The Chinese embassy has recently issued stamped visas to Kashmiris on a separate sheet of paper and not on their passports. Beijing says Kashmir is a disputed territory, and India is occupying illegally on Kashmir.

I am in the CAD lab. Making a stapler. Wish me best of luck! :)

and some other updates (no big boring articles for this post):


The Semester is about to come to an end.
I lost my wallet a few days back.
The CAD teacer hates me (!!)
I hate the rest (!!)

IIUM is almost same.. Some people are graduating this time of the year. The new complex is almost ready to be opened for public. Nasi Goreng Special is fantastic. and my Farm in Farmvile (FACEBOOK) is growing..

Oh and...
I am thinking of a minor, so i get to choose one of these as one:
1. Economics
2. Management
3. IRKHS (Islamic Revealed Knowledge)

I am stuck between choosing Number 1 and Number 3.. I think I will go with Number 3. Then I can Debate better :D (and blog much much better)

Am thinking of growing a beard too.. But Alas! the beard doesnt want me.. So I will wait for sometime until it comes !!!


Alec Smart Said: A muslim with a beard may not be a good muslim in other respects (email me and i can give you thousands of examples). So stop judging our DEEN based on the acts of such bearded people.. Or Just compare Mamoon (no beard) with ShahRukh Khan (no beard again... Ooops.. ) comments
