Late Shakila Begum: A tribute to my mother

My mother, Shakila Begum, breathed her last on 7 January 2018 after more than two months of hospitalization. My father, Late Jamil Ahmad had left us on 10 January last year and it was perhaps her devotion to him that did not let one complete year pass before her joining him in the heavenly abode. May Allah shower His choicest blessings and maghfirah on them!

Rohingya Crisis: Let Humanity Prevail! A view from India

Rohingya crisis has become the latest addition to the unending chain of victimisation of Muslims. Again, there is hardly any surprise that Myanmar Government is trying to project them as terrorists.

It’s a bipolar world now

For many decades, the world continued to be unipolar with America remaining unchallenged in its hegemony of the world. The whole of West, willingly or unwillingly, bowed to its diktats. It had become so unipolar that “international “almost always meant Western, or more specifically, American. American opinion was always right. It was changing regimes at will. The Islamic World was the worst sufferer. Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Egypt – all succumbed to its bombs. Syria was the only remaining country in the Arab World, which had refused to fall. It had the backing only of Iran, which has been a...
