    • Ha..ha….so saaaaaad for you, “bomber” sorry that this Saudi Princess was acquitted!!

      But sadly, the Al Shabab group has attacked today our Shopping Mall-called West Gate, in Nairobi-Kenya and killed almost 30 innocent people injuring other 50 people.

      There are some sporadic gunshots being heard this night and such an incident is second, the first being the Al Qaeeda attack in 1988, app. 26 years ago, where about 300 innocent Kenyans were killed!!

      Does that make you happy???

  1. Hi Raj, the concept of nonviolence known as “satyagraha” was brought about by Mahatma Gandhi, who was an Avatar of NO god and was the ONLY case of SATYAGRAHA in the World!!! Yet he was killed by his own fellow violent Hindus, for whom he strived so hard. There are NO Hindu Scriptures talking of “satyagraha”.

    Infact -most of the Hindu Gods carried weapons, including Krishna, Ram and Arjun….and as always the concept of Hinduism is violence not forgetting the terrible blood thirsty Kali!!!!!!!!!

    See for yourself that these are not peaceful verses :

    “Slay each reviler, and destroy him who in secret injures us:Do thou, O Indra” (Rig Veda: 1:29:7)

    “He, much invoked, hath slain Dasyus and Śimyus, after his wont, and laid them low with arrows. The mighty Thunderer with his fair-complexioned friends won the land,the sunlight, and the waters.” (Rig veda 1:100:18)

    Now read this very “nice” real life macabre incident!!!

    “Husband beheads wife in human sacrifice in Jharkhand”.
    In a gory incident of human sacrifice in Jharkhand, a husband allegedly beheaded his wife and offered her severed head to appease a deity in the state’s Lohardagga district.

    Local people informed police that Jetawan had been engaging himself too much in prayers and pooja for the last few months”
    .(http://www.thaindian.com/newsportal/uncategorized/husband-beheads-wife-in-human-sacrifice).

    And what does the Quran say ?

    2:178 Yusuf Ali: O ye who believe! the law of equality is prescribed to you in cases of murder: the free for the free, the slave for the slave, the woman for the woman. But if any remission is made by the brother of the slain, then grant any reasonable demand, and compensate him with handsome gratitude, this is a concession and a Mercy from your Lord. After this whoever exceeds the limits shall be in grave penalty.

    2:179 Yusuf Ali: In the Law of Equality there is (saving of) Life to you, o ye men of understanding; that ye may restrain yourselves.

    4:90 “..So if they remove themselves from you and do not fight you and offer you peace, then Allah has NOT made for you a cause [for fighting] against them”.

    And finally, 17:33 Pickthall: And slay not the life which Allah hath forbidden save with right. Whoso is slain wrongfully, We have given power unto his heir, but let him not commit excess in slaying. Lo! he will be helped.

    Satyagraha is not mentioned in any of the Hindu Scriptures and is NOT an Ordinance of Hindu philosophy!!! Hindus are NOT non-violent people as they portray themselves to be!!!

    • Suraj the ball, SEE What Hinduism teaches. Your bastards took another two young lives, in our generation, because of your bloody stupid barbaric and illusory beliefs!!!

      “Young man beheaded, girl killed: the end they deserved, says Haryana village!!!!!!

      Just a short 10-minute walk away, the girl he was in love with, Nidhi Barak, had been cremated.
      But when she has grown up, that same girl’s murder can also be flashed as a badge of honour -to prove she was stopped from shaming her family.

      In the main room, a group of men including his father are smoking the hookah. In a smaller room next door, his wife and other women are cleaning.

      It was just 48 hours ago that the head of 23-year-old Dharmendra Barak was found by his family outside the house that he had left that morning.

      The police says she was stabbed to death by her own parents.

      Their village in the Rohtak district of Haryana, just over 80 km from Delhi, is united today. Not in its grief, but in its conviction that the brutal killings of the young lovers was just”.

      Quran : 5:32 “…if someone kills another person – unless it is in retaliation for someone else or for causing corruption in the earth – it is as if he had murdered all mankind”.

      You bastards….stop killing your own children and read what the Quran says :

      16:58 And when one of them is informed of [the birth of] a female, his face becomes dark, and he suppresses grief.

      16:59 He hides himself from the people because of the ill of which he has been informed. Should he keep it in humiliation or bury it in the ground? Unquestionably, evil is what they decide

      81:8 Pickthall: And when the girl-child that was buried alive is asked

      81:9 Yusuf Ali: For what crime she was killed?

      Quran is asking, for what crime was she killed???????????????

      Shuddered and Shocked
