Advanced Hypocrisy

Why is it … ?
That a nun can be covered from head to toe and she is respected for devoting herself to God
But when a Muslim woman does that, she is considered “oppressed” ?

Why is it … ?
That a Jew can grow a beard and he is just practicing his faith,
And when a Muslim does that, he is an extremist ?

Why is it … ?
When a western woman stays at home to look after the house and kids she is sacrificing herself and doing good for the household,
But when a Muslim woman does so, she “needs to be liberated” ?

Why is it … ?
When a Christian or a Jew kills someone, religion is not mentioned, (that is, Ireland, Rowanda and the IRA or elswhere)
But when a Muslim is charged with a crime, it is Islam that goes to trial ?

Dance of Seven Veils has Begun

General (now retired) Pervez Musharraf had been telling lie after lie to his nation. It is said in our country that the truth can not remain hidden for long. So, like dance of the seven veils, things have started unveiling themselves.

A few days back, Renowned scientist Engineer (Doctor) Abdul Qadeer Khan had revealed that Pervez Musharraf had promised to lift restrictions on Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan but had failed to keep his promise. An old friend of Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan has filed a petition in Islamabad High Court against un-lawful restrictions on Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan which is being heard in the court.

Now, according to the report circulated by the South Asian News Agency, Dr Khan said that Libya is lying as Tripoli did not get anything from Islamabad. He said they purchased nuclear hardware from the person from whom Pakistan had purchased nuclear hardware. He said he admitted it not because of any fear but in the interest of the country. He said at that time he was told that if he did not accept the allegations, the country might be bombed.

It quoted Dr Khan as having told in a telephonic interview that Musharraf is doing whatever the US wants. He said the US plans to break up Pakistan by 2015.

Bitterly criticising the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), he said it is not an international organisation but belongs to the Americans and Jews and he is not bound to appear before the IAEA.

Dr Khan, who is respected as a national hero in Pakistan, said that now it is time to show the real picture to the nation because the other side is spreading false stories one after another. He said that his report would not remain under wraps like the Hamoodur Rehman Commission report because he has told each and everything to his family and the nation would soon know the truth.

About the threat to his life, Dr Khan said he is a true Muslim and believes that life and death are in the hands of Almighty Allah, therefore, he is not afraid of death. About procurement of conventional weapons by Pakistan despite having nuclear weapons, he said they have no value as compared to the nuclear weapons and are being bought just to receive commissions. In this regard, he referred to the construction of flyovers in Karachi and said that in the areas inhabited by the poor there are big potholes all around. When big projects are executed, he added, these are meant to receive commissions.

C T Scan of Bush’s Brain

Personal physician of President George W Bush advised him to have complete clinical examination. Every thing went alright the radiologist was a bit confused about CT scan of the President’ brain. The images were referred to a highly qualified expert of CT scan. He gave the following report:

1. His brain has two parts, RIGHT and LEFT.
2. In the LEFT part, there is nothing RIGHT.
3. And in the RIGHT part, there is nothing LEFT.

Law of the Garbage Truck

Life is ten percent what you make it and ninety percent how you take it.

A person narrated:

“One day I hopped in a taxi and we took off for the airport. We were driving in the right lane when suddenly a black car jumped out of a parking space right in front of us. My taxi driver slammed on his breaks, skidded, and missed the other car by just inches!

The driver of the other car whipped his head around and started yelling at us. My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy. And I mean, he was really, really friendly.

So I asked, ‘Why did you just do that? This guy almost ruined your car and sent us to the hospital!’; this is when my taxi driver taught me what I now call, ‘The Law of the Garbage Truck’.

He explained that many people are like garbage trucks. They run around full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full of disappointment. As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it and sometimes they’ll dump it on you. Don’t take it personally. Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on. Don’t take their garbage and spread it to other people at work, at home, or on the streets.

The bottom line is that successful people do not let garbage trucks take over their day. Life’s too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so….. ‘Love the people who treat you right. Pray for the one’s who don’t.’

Admire creativity, and you will be creative.
Love, and you will be loved.
Seek to understand, and you will be understood.
