Faith and Butterfly effect Story of a devastated Pakistani Village

by Awaam “Aik insaan ka qatal poori insaniyat ka qatal hai” Quran ( Killing one human being is akin to killing whole Humanity) “Musalman wo hai jis k haath oar zuban se doosray musalman mehfooz rahain”  Hadith a(Muslim is the one, the evil of whose hand and tongue does not touch other Muslims) These were the commandments of God and His prophet that we distributed, among the flood affectees in the form of leaflets, along with the aid items a few months back in Drab Majoke, Charsaddah. To be honest, I was not very sure when getting these leaflets printed, whether anyone will bother to read them or not, especially considering the calamity these poor people faced.  We were also not sure about the level of the literacy in the camp and interest these people had in such ‘Bookish Activities’. May be it was simply our arrogance and pride.   However the hope that even if one person reads it and may ponder and reflect over it, encouraged us to undertake the endeavour.

Can an Islamic State be Secular?

Amaar Ahmad It can be argued that the minimum definition of a secular state is one that permits all its citizens to freely practice, profess and propagate their religion (or the lack thereof) and it does not enact laws which discriminates in worldly affairs between citizens on the basis of their faith. Can an Islamic state offer a constitution and an environment which meets this description of secularism?

My Lessons in Life

An Article Address by Azim Premji in the ‘Shaping Young Minds Program’ (SYMP) organized by AIMA in collaboration with the Bombay Management Association (BMA) in Mumbai on ‘My Lessons in Life’. I am very happy to be here with you. It is always wonderful to be with young people. As my hair turned from black, to salt and pepper and finally salt without the pepper, I have begun to realize the importance of youth. At the same time, I have begun to truly appreciate some of the lessons I have learnt along the way. I hope you will find them useful when you plan your own career and life.
