Killing one human is equal to killing of entire humanity!!!!

I grew up with a simple teaching of my Muslim parents- killing one human being is equal to killing of the whole humanity. However,I have witnessed killings of innocent human beings by those who claim to be the gate-keepers of religion. Why havent they obeyed Islam when they call themselves Muslim?

Today around 80 human beings were brutally killed in Lahore because they were Ahmadis, but does that matter? Isnt it enough to say that the carnage took lives of 80 human beings and around 100 human being injured in the attacks? No other identity matters. Anyways, the same people that killed Ahmadis today have killed thousands and millions of Muslims as well and exploded themselves around civilian populations. These are the same people who are contaminating the brains of our young children and teach them to explode themselves and kill the entire humanity.

I am still shocked with the footage and images of the terrorists that were shown on Geo Tv today.One person tries to jump from the top floor window of the building to save his life but as he gets to the ground, the terrorist from the top floor shots him with gunfire. Then the terrorist gunman looks up in the sky and raises his gun in joy. This is the atrocious illustration of a belief. He was enjoying every bullet he fired and showed pride and vanity.This examples the process of indoctrinating hatred and violence in brains that occurs in the Madrasas.

Feature : Different faces of prostitution in Afghanistan

Prostitution is not an easily accepted reality in our society. Most of the time, we are in denial that in Muslim societies women do not sell their bodies for money, even if they do, no one will buy. It is actually the opposite, even if a woman does not want, the societal miseries make her do anything for survival and livelihood of the family. While Prostitution in many other parts of the world could be understand as a woman's sexual desire and of her immoral character; the truth behind it is hardly explored.
In my work on women's issues in Afghanistan, I came across many women who have at least once sold their bodies to earn a living either forced by a family member or in secret. However, I chose to write about these three women I met three years ago in an old city of Kabul. These three different women have at least one thing in common, that even in a closed traditional and religious society, they were made to be prostitutes, either in public or in secret.

Our voices are not stoned to death!!!

On Friday, 06 July 2012, Ms Fawzia Koofi, one of the prominent female MPs called and with a disturbingly quiet tone asked whether I knew about the Parwan incident. I said Yes, saw a tweet from one of the BBC journalists but dont know if its true or not. She said its true and she saw the video. After we both mourned the incident, she said if women dont stand all these violence, we will all face this fate, one by one. We hanged on the phone and I started digging deeper to find out what happened. 
Though, we still dont know the exact account of the heinous act of violence and oppression that we all witnessed in that video- we are all so shocked & furious over the fact that najiba  was brutally murdered. No matter who did it, that does not make any difference. The information that we have been able to obtain to date is that Najiba, 21 year old who was either kidnapped or forced to come to the house of one of the armed commanders (apparently a taleb as the Parwan governor emphasizes) …

Will Afghan realities matter to Chicago?

On the night of 23rd Sawr 1391 (May 2012) Najiba and her three sons (5, 7, 13 yrs) were brutally shot dead by their uncle and Najiba’s brother in law in Chardara district of Kunduz province. After killing Najiba and her sons, the brother in law who is named Zanabuddin has run away and there is no news on him. According to the police chief, the main motive of the killing was that Najiba had rejected marrying her brother in law after her husband died. Najiba’s brothers and cousins are now planning revenge.
What is new about this story apart from being sorry for Najiba and her sons? What do we hear from the police in such circumstances that ‘investigations are under way’? I am sure the murderer has already fled Kunduz and is in one of our neighboring countries, perhaps.
Yet another case of killing and murder that adds to the piles of cases and incidents that either have been filed by the police stations lined up under the dust or the cases that await their fate in the judiciary that take…
