According to the Honorable Archbishop Desmond Tutu 2015, “The credit that is due to the government of Myanmar for reforms undertaken over the past couple of years does not blind us to the ongoing disavowal and repression of its ethnic minorities, the Rohingya population in particular.

A country that is not at peace with itself, that fails to acknowledge and protect the dignity and worth of all its people, is not a free country. Freedom is indivisible. All must be invited. All, a part.

The Rohingya people were not consulted when the British drew the Burmese border on the map. With those strokes of a pen, they became a borderland people; people whose ancestral land traverses political boundaries.”

According to Tom Heneghan 2012, “People with no religious affiliation make up the third-largest global group in a new study of the size of the world’s faiths, placing after Christians and Muslims and just before Hindus.

The study, based on extensive data for the year 2010, also showed Islam and Hinduism are the faiths mostly likely to expand in the future while Jews have the weakest growth prospects.

It showed Christianity is the most evenly spread religion, present in all regions of the world, while Hinduism is the least global with 94 percent of its population in one country, India.

Overall, 84 percent of the world’s inhabitants, which it estimated at 6.9 billion, identify with a religion, according to the study entitled “The Global Religious Landscape” issued by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life on Tuesday.

Ramadan Mubarak!! Eid Mubarak!!!

allah_swtAsalaam alaikum wa rahmatulahi wa barakatuh my Muslim brothers and sisters around the world. As we come upon the end of Ramadan and our holy fast I would like to give praise the brave brothers and sisters who take up the struggle around the world. RAMADAN MUBARAK EID al-FITR!! An accumulation of years being on the straight and narrow path (Salat and Transcendental Meditation TM) seeking wisdom and truth through positive thinking and positive actions.

The “Koran by Heart” an HBO Documentary aired on the first day of Ramadan and was a wonderful way to start the fast and holy month. According to HBO 2011, “In Egypt over 100 kids from 70 countries compete annually in the world’s oldest Holy Qu’ran memorization contest.” It’s amazing. I know 8 or 10 chapters from The Holy Qu’ran. The kids memorize the entire Holy Qu’ran between 5 and 10 years old Insha Allah. Amazing!

Unfortunately our brothers and sisters in Syria, Libya Egypt and other countries had to suffer through this 2011 Ramadan. May Allah bless their souls and continue to protect and provide sustenance for the survivors.
