Mawlana Shaykh Nazims advise for President Erdogan of Turkey to use against the protesters who are rising up against him- "Let me tell these governments a method of punishment. Catch the ones who do naughty things in the streets but don't beat them. Cover their eyes & imprison them in the Karachaahmet cemetery (biggest in Turkey). They will go crazy when their eyes are opened. They don't learn from the stick? Take them to the Karachaahmet cemetery. Cover their eyes and let them open their eyes there. See if they will ever go into the streets again after this. They say "Erdogan Bey didn't speak to them nicely". Don't even try to speak. Why should you? Catch them. Collect them. To where? Welcome to Karachaahmet! The Karachaahmet cemetery, people don't dare to go there even in the daytime. Cover their eyes, take them to Karachaahmet cemetery and leave them there. Let us see if they will act without adab again. And where to take the women? There is a place in Karachaahmet cemetery where they bring the corpses ...
Okay, Mayor Bloomberg and his attempted nanny law on large sugary drinks was stupid. But for a bit of perspective, in Turkey earlier this month, President Erdogan proposed bans on alcohol and public displays of affection. And how's that working out for him.
On News 24 yesterday morning a lady announced that a mass of people would be gathering in Hyde Park later. They would all be holding twirly sticks in order to "send a message to the G8 leaders" about hunger in the developing world. In Lyric Square in Hammersmith members of the NUT were giving out leaflets protesting about government education policy.        Around midday, near Charing Cross, a swarm of nude cyclists went past, reminding me that a similar event had occurred a year ago. I think the point is to raise awareness of cyclists, in which it briefly succeeds. Near the National Portrait Gallery I saw a small boy waving a red flag with a hammer&sickle on it, and then I turned in to Trafalgar Square to see lots of Turkish people having a protest about the treatment of the Taksim Square protest in Turkey. I got a leaflet and a paper from one of the various left-wing people, demanding a 1-day General Strike to bring down President Erdogan:       The on-going brutality, firstly in Gezi Park on Ta ...

Alhamdulillah our surau 'Surau Mutiara Damansara' managed to collect 'derma kilat' for Gaza during the Friday prayer totalling RM 13,750.00 and will be channeled via Aman Palestin for the people of Palestine. According to our Palestinian friend at the Surau, the escalated attack by Hamas was started by Israel first that fired a guided missile at one of the 'Hamas General' while he was driving and it killed him instantly. Hamas just retaliated the attack with their rockets to Israel. So it wasn't the Hamas that attacked first and the Israeli retaliated but it was the reversed. He also informed us that for the first time, Eqypt led by President Morshi despatched 2 tons of medical aids to Palestine and open up the borders with Gaza unlike the late dictator Hosni Mubarak who shut off the border and did not do anything to help the Palestinian. He told us also that President Erdogan of Turkey came down to Gaza personally during the conflict and walked at the conflict zone himself to see for himself whether Isra ...
