UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay Abuses Basic Human Rights of the Maldivians and Muslims

The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay visited Maldives from 22-24 November, 2011. This was the first-ever visit by a UN High Commissioner for Human Rights to the Maldives. During her visit she gave a keynote address to the Maldives parliament, the People’s Majlis, on 24 November. She also held a press conference at the UN building in the Maldives capital Male’ on Thursday 24 November 2011 at 17:45. The website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Maldives reveals that her sudden visit was at the invitation of the government of the Maldives. Many Maldivians raise eyebrows on this very fact that this sudden visit by her to hurl abuse on Maldivians coincided with the public outrage on idolatrous SAARC monuments in Addu, Maldives.

UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay: Abusing basic human rights of Maldivians in a speech she delivered to Maldives parliamentarians.

It was in her speech to the parliament and during the press conference, that she fell from grace and abused the most basic human rights of the Maldivians with her antireligious remarks as well as her abuse of Maldivians as a whole. How ironic it is, that the very person who is tasked with protecting human rights of all UN member nations committed this heinous crime.

Her mission was clear: to challenge The Islamic Sharia and the constitution of the Maldives and therefore, abuse human rights of the Maldivians by attacking both their religion and their constitution.

During her speech in the parliament on 24 Novermber, 2011, she said that flogging women convicted of extra-marital sex is one of the most inhumane forms of violence against women. “This practice constitutes one of the most inhumane and degrading forms of violence against women and should have no place in the legal framework of a democratic country. I strongly believe that a public debate is needed in Maldives on this issue of major concern,” Navi Pillay said in her address to the MPs. However the truth of the matter is that flogging is carried out for both men and women equality; 100 lashes each if convicted. So she clearly missed the point. It’s simply not true to say it is discriminatory against women when both men and women receive the same sentence. MPs from from the opposition Progressive Party of Maldives (PPM), Dhivehi Qaumee Party (DQP), Jumhooree Party leader Gasim Ibrahim and at least one MP of ruling Maldives Democratic Party (MDP) boycotted the meeting, knowing that Millay is such an anti-Islamic figure who regularly insults Islam and Muslims alike.

And again the same day, she repeated her abuses speaking to journalists at the United Nations Building in Male before concluding her four-day visit to the island nation. She called on Maldivian authorities to remove the constitutional provision that requires every citizen to be a Muslim. She said the provision is discriminatory and does not comply with the international standards. “I would again urge a debate on that to open up the benefits of the constitution to all and to remove that discriminatory provision,” she said. Asked why she made her remarks about flogging when it violates the Maldivian constitution, Pillay said that “I don’t believe you have a constitution”.

However, her remarks about remove the constitutional provision that requires every citizen to be a Muslim, is out of context. It is worth noting that the Maldives is a 100% Muslim country and therefore this particular call by her is rather irrelevant to the Maldives context; it may be relevant to those countries where there are different religious groups. In addition to that, it is also worth noting that no single Maldivian have been deported from the country due to religious beliefs. So, why she abused Maldivians like that? Sheer ignorance?

Her remarks that she does not believe there is a constitution in the Maldives raises serious concerns. Maldives is the a model democracy among Muslim nations and it’s constitutions is part of this promising democracy. Therefore, saying there is not constitution in the Maldives indicates her disrespect to the democratic process in the Maldives.

These remarks by her about the most basic human rights of Maldivians; their religion and their constitution can be regarded as abusing these rights of Maldivians. For these reasons, a vast majority of Maldivian are voicing their concerns against these remarks by her through protests and through social media such as facebook and also by the comments they leave on local news papers such as Haveeru daily.

Minister of Islamic Affairs Dr. Abdul Majeed Abdul Bary strongly denounced Pillay’s remarks and said that flogging is one of the important rulings of Islam and there is no room for a public debate on this issue. A ruling party MP Abdulla Abdul Raheem who boycotted her speech later in a parliamentary session said that such a person as Pillay who do not accept the constitution of a democratic country, should not be in such a high post of United Nations. He also said that her speech at the parliament should be deleted from the minutes of the parliament because it is such a disgrace that she caused there. Many, including MP Abdulla Abdul Raheem and the independent MP Mohamed Nasheed criticized the speaker of the parliament for allowing her to speak in the parliament.

One comment left on Haveeru daily said “she needs to learn how to respect others religion…. Maldives is a peaceful country where all are Muslims. For the ambassador it is better to learn how to avoid conflicts in communities rather than making conflicting statements and run away.” Another comment, also on Haveeru, said if she doesn’t know how to respect others’ religion, she is not fit to be a human rights ambassador. Just let us be in our religion, Islam doesn’t need any modification from anyone!” Another comment for another news article of her said “Madam, it’s not only in Islam, the extra-marital sex is forbidden…there are other religions as well…just that in Islam there is a punishment for a sin, does not mean, it has to be changed for the sake of your ‘Human Rights’. If you are so ‘Human Right concerned’ you may think of getting involved in Palestine-Israel issues and you may find a lifetime works there’.

The comments left on Haveeru touches important issues. One such comment said “UN Charter dictates that all respect others religion, culture and sovereignty. In her capacity as the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Navi Pillay has violated our rights and interfered with our internal affairs. I would like to ask her if an occasional flogging is worse than gang rapping and broad daylight murders that are occurring on a daily basis in the countries that has multi religions? Is she blind to what is happening in Israel occupied Palestinian land?”

There are countless complaints by thousands of Maldivians on facebook also. Many raising the question of the hidden agenda behind her controversial remarks in Maldives. In addition to that, the outrage of caused by Pillay came on streets in the form public protests in the capital Male’ on the next day. Haveery daily reported that Protestors gathered outside the United Nations Building in Male on 25 November 2011, condemning UN human rights chief’s comments against flogging and the constitutional provision that requires every Maldivian to be a Muslim. The protestors who carried signboards with angry slogans first surrounded the UN Building on Buruzu Magu afternoon on 25 November and called authorities to arrest Navi Pillay who concluded her four-day visit to the island nation yesterday.

The Legacy of Muammar Al-Gaddafi

The late Libyan leader Muammar Al-Gadhafi’s 42 years legeacy can be outlined coulorfully. Some have depicted him as a brutal dictator, especially by western media outlets. Because he -in recent times – criticised leaders of oil rich gulf countries, the media in those countries as well some media outlets of other countries that managed to oust their leaders, keep describing col Gadhafi in the worst imaginable ways. But if you really look at who he managed to oust in 1969 without any bloodshed (unlike NTC who ousted him) and the contrasting situations before and after he came power, then you would start to have – at least – some positive thoughts about him.

Media is a strong tool that can influence peoples’ minds. Easily when one-sided in covering a situation, the positives – often – are ignored. The same thing happened with the coverage of Libya and gadhafi. Rarely we hear world media talking about the achievements Col gadhafi and the accusations leveleld against him often don’t add up.

First let’s look at his family. He married twice. His first son Muhammad, 41 (born in 1970 ) was the only child from his first wife Fatiha Al-Nuri. He graduated with a PhD in Engineering and Management from Liverpool University in 2006. Muammar Al-Gadhafi fathered six sons (Saif Al-Islam, 39 (born on 25 June, 1972), Al-Saadi,  38 (born on 25 May 1973), Hannibal, 36 (born on 20 September 1975), Mutassin, (born on 1 january 1977)- died aged 34 on 20 October 2011, , Saif Al-Arab, (born in 1982) – died aged 29 on 30 April 2011 and Khamis, (born on 27 May 1983) – reported that he died aged 28 on 29 August 2011 and one daughter (Aisha,  34 (born in 1976) with his second wife Safia farkash.

Second, lets look at his rise to the leader of Libya. In his youth, Muammar Gaddafi was an admirer of Arab nationalist leader Gamal Abdel Nasser. He first hatched plans to topple Libya’s monarchy as a young soldier. A charismatic figure, he received army training in the UK before returning to Libya to overthrow King Idris in a bloodless coup on 1 September 1969.

51771930 withnasser The Legacy of Muammar Al Gaddafi

Gaddafi was a huge admirer of Egypt’s Gamal Abdel Nasser, who led the Egyptian Revolution of 1952

He developed his political philosophy known as the Green Book and took on foreign oil interests in Libya. He also played a key role in the Middle East oil crisis of 1973-74 and fostered links with fellow African and other regional leaders. His attempts to represent pan-African interests were not ultimately successful.

Col Gaddafi’s courting of militant groups, including the Irish Republican Army and the Palestine Liberation Organisation earned him the “mad dog” label from US President Ronald Reagan. The US responded to Libya’s alleged involvement in a terror attack in Europe with air strikes on Tripoli and Benghazi. Col Gaddafi’s adopted daughter Hana was killed in the as a result of bombing along with 100 Libyans.

The bombing of Pan-Am flight 103 over the Scottish town of Lockerbie was the next significant escalation in tensions. Libya was blamed for causing the deaths of 270 people in the air and on the ground, the worst single act of terrorism ever witnessed in the UK. Col Gaddafi’s initial refusal to hand over the two Libyan suspects to be tried resulted in a protracted period of negotiations and UN sanctions.

In 1999, two Libyans were handed over and tried in a Scottish court for the Lockerbie bombing, one was found guilty. The resolution of the case, along with Col Gaddafi’s subsequent admission and renunciation of a covert nuclear and chemical weapons programme, paved the way for a significant warming of relations between Tripoli and Western powers. With international sanctions lifted, Tripoli was back on the international political itinerary, allowing British Prime Minister Tony Blair, among other leading figures, to drop in at Col Gaddafi’s famously luxurious Bedouin tent erected in his palace grounds. Mr Blair visited in 2004 and again in 2007.

Inspired by events in neighbouring Tunisia and Egypt and sparked by the arrest of a Libyan human rights campaigner, protests against Col Gaddafi’s four-decade rule began in February. Starting in the east, where he staged his coup more than 40 years earlier, they spread across the country. Col Gaddafi remained uncompromising and vowed to crush the rebellion. However, this was more than peaceful civilians protesting (despite NATO claims that their air campaign was to protect civilians). It was an aramed rebelion supported by NATO and Western countries along with some Gulf countries like Qatar and UAE. NATO gave full air backing for Libyan rebels. That was – perhaps – the reason the rebels succeeded in austing Col gadhafi from power. He was brutally killed bu rebel forces who captured hin on 20 October 2011 in Sirt, Libya, his home town and birthplace.

Those were some of the events the world noticed of him. However, when we look at his achievements and policies, the picture is much more colourful indeed.

1. There is no electricity bill in Libya; electricity is free for all its citizens.

2. There is no interest on loans, banks in Libya are state-owned and loans given to all its citizens at 0% interest by law.

3. Home considered a human right in Libya – Gaddafi vowed that his parents would not get a house until everyone in Libya had a home. Gaddafi’s father has died while him, his wife and his mother are still living in a tent.

4. All newlyweds in Libya receive $60,000 Dinar (US$ 50,000 ) by the government to buy their first apartment so to help start up the family.

5. Education and medical treatments are free in Libya. Before Gaddafi only 25% of Libyans are literate. Today the figure is 83%.

6. Should Libyans want to take up farming career, they would receive farming land, a farming house, equipments, seeds and livestock to kick- start their farms – all for free.

7. If Libyans cannot find the education or medical facilities they need in Libya, the government funds them to go abroad for it – not only free but they get US $2, 300/mth accommodation and car allowance.

8. In Libyan, if a Libyan buys a car, the government subsidized 50% of the price.

9. The price of petrol in Libya is $0. 14 per liter.

10. Libya has no external debt and its reserves amount to $150 billion – now frozen globally.

11. If a Libyan is unable to get employment after graduation the state would pay the average salary of the profession as if he or she is employed until employment is found.

12. A portion of Libyan oil sale is, credited directly to the bank accounts of all Libyan citizens.

13. A mother who gave birth to a child receive US $5 ,000.

14. 40 loaves of bread in Libya costs $ 0.15.

15. 25% of Libyans have a university degree.

16. Gaddafi carried out the world’s largest irrigation project, known as the Great Man-Made River project, to make water readily available throughout the desert country.

Bollywood Legend Amitabh Bachchan Awarded Honarary Doctorate from Queensland University of Technology (QUT) – Australia

India’s biggest cinematic star brought a little bit of Bollywood to Queensland University of Technology (QUT) yesterday.

Amitabh Bachchan, who has starred in more than 180 Bollywood films, said he was humbled by the experience to receive the honarary doctorate.

“A good education is the most valuable thing a human can possess. In the world beyond these walls fortune comes and goes but education can never be taken away,” Mr Bachchan said.

“Education helps us to strengthen and fortify convictions not to be swayed by preoccupation of caste and creed, race and religion.”

Mr Bachchan, who will launch today a Creative Industries Bursary in the name of his late father Dr Harivansh Rai Bachchan, said he hoped that his trip to QUT would help to strengthen bonds between Australia and India.

“I feel very honoured they have chosen to name this bursary after my father. I think it is a wonderful gesture of inter-country relationships, where students from one country go and share the experience in another country and vice versa. I am happy it’s happening between India and Australia,” he said.

“Any form of higher education is very useful in today’s world… I have many friends in India who send their kids to Australia to study and I know they are very happy.

“I do believe large numbers of Indian students seek education in Australia and I hope that continues to grow.”

The intimate ceremony was given a touch of Hollywood with renowned Australian Director Baz Luhrmann appearing via video link to personally congratulate Mr Bachchan, who this week finished filming a scene for The Great Gatsby, alongside Leonardo DiCaprio.

“I’ve been an admirer of Baz Lurhmann and his films Moulin Rouge and Romeo and Juliet. I think he’s magnificent not just in the subjects he picks but his own interpretation of them on film. He has a unique style and each of his works are a piece of art,” Mr Bachchan said.

“I hope to come back here one day and work with him again.”

The ceremony, which took place two years after Mr Bachchan declined the honour due to the attacks on Indian students in Victoria, said he was satisfied that now was the appropriate time to accept the offer.

“It’s been a very warm welcome. I’ve only been seeing smiling faces and experiencing great hospitality. That was something that was an aberration and it’s over now,” he said.

“To find myself in a foreign country, and to have this recognition from them is truly amazing. I do not have enough words to thank you for having bestowed on me this great honour. I value it a lot.”

steve jobs with apple How Steve Jobs Health DeclinedThe death of Technology giant Apple’s former CEO and Co-chairman Steve Jobs, 56, was sad news for many in the world, especially millions of people who purcheased the wonderful devices like iMac, iPod, iPhone and iPad. Recent images of him show a frail and weak man. However, he was a healthy, handsome and strong man before his health problems started in 2004, after he was diagnosed with a rare form of pancreatic cance.

Steve Jobs co-founded Apple in 1976 with Steve Wozniak, Mike Markkula and Ron Wayne. However Ron sold his 10% share of of Apple to just 2300 just after 12 days. Jobs together with Wozniak ushered in the Apple II, which went on sale in 1977. It was the first “practical” personal computer, eventually dominating the education market in particular.

Jobs left Apple Computer in 1985 and set out to develop a new OS and computer company, dubbed NeXT. He returned to Apple in 1996 when the company purchased NeXT for $429 million, and took over as chief executive in 1997. Now, Apple is the one of the most profitable companies the world has ever seen with a market cap of $350 billion.

He underwent surgery in 2004, received a liver transplant in 2009 and took three medical leaves of absence as Apple’s chief executive before stepping down in August and turning over the helm to Timothy D. Cook, the chief operating officer. When he left, he was still engaged in the company’s affairs, negotiating with another Silicon Valley executive only weeks earlier.

When he died he was worth more than $8.3 billion fortune through his holdings in Apple and a 7.4 percent stake in Disney (through the sale of Pixar).

The following pictures show how Steve Jobs’ health declined over the years and how health and smart he looked before.

Reggie Brown, impersonating President Barack Obama, speaks during the 2011 Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana June 18, 2011.

At this year’s Republican Leadership Conference, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) noted double-digit unemployment numbers among African-Americans and Hispanics, pledging to do better by minorities than the current occupant of the White House. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, who is Indian-American, argued that “hating President Obama is foolish.”

But those rhetorical gestures were drowned out by the weekend’s comedy act. Obama impersonator Reggie Brown raised eyebrows with jokes about Black History Month, interracial marriage and former Rep. A nthony Weiner (D-N.Y). Read more…

People visit Al-Hussein Mosque in Cairo, a key pilgrimage site for Sufis, whose shrines have come under attack from members of Salafi movement in Egypt

Undoubtedly many in Egypt and across the world are irritated by intense Salafist media, political and popular activities. Different groups and sects of Salafis openly express their ideas and convictions and sometimes take action, violating the rights of other Egyptians.

Contrary to what many observers hail as worrisome, I regard that the Salafis’ openness in expressing and forcing their views limits any potential for the spread of their ideas, unlike the Muslim Brothers who are able to manoeuvre by hiding their real convictions, which are no different than that of Salafis, behind modern rhetoric and terminology.
