Note Ban: How Prime Minister Modi’s Ego Trip Destroyed India’s Growth Story

The black money is held in assets, gold, real estate and foreign
banks. It is held in currency either by petty bureaucrats or
politicians who need it to run their political machine. The big ticket
corruption happens in the business world through cross border trade
(under/over invoicing) and tax evasions, may be digitally, contrary to
Modi’s beliefs.

1) How Quran helped Egyptian Scientist develop a revolutionary
medicine to cure cataracts

Proving the notion that the Holy Quran could be a source of scientific
research, an Egyptian scientist, Prof. Dr. Abdul Basit Muhammad Sayyid
manufactured drops for treating cataracts inspired by Prophet Yusuf’s
(peace be upon him) shirt as described in the verses of the Holy Quran
as mentioned above.

2) In Islam, Conduct Is As Profound As Rituals

Unlike the commonly held belief that man is evil by nature, Islam
holds that man is born with a morally good nature that responds to
faith and ethical values. Over time, it may get corrupted due to
temptations and man’s inability to exercise control over his desires.
According to Islam, there is universal equality among mankind, with
the single exception of moral goodness and strength of character or
taqwa.

3) Holy Qur’an That Shaped My Worldview

There is one lesson from the Qur’an that has held me in good stead
throughout my life. We are all fallible beings with finite
intelligence and insights of limited prescience but if we hitch our
wagon to our conscience – which for Muslims is shaped by the guidance
of the Qur’an-divine help alights in every crisis.

5) Islam Is Moderate, Clerics Have Made It Harsh

One of the most commonly cited example is of easing the obligation to
fast during the month of Ramadan for travellers, as a way of
cautioning believers against excess. Such Islamic provisions have
provided guidance to most Islamic scholars to understand the Qur'anic
quotation describing the Muslims as the "community of moderation".

6) Media Must Shun Its Bias Against Muslims

Sadly, journalism is failing to perform its fundamental role of
objective reporting and analysis and continues its job by rehashing
tired old narratives of "radical Islam" or a "fight within Islam". The
truth is much more convoluted than that - and the entire world has a
direct role in creating the dangerous reality that so many Muslims
have to live with every single day.

7) Kerala BJP leader's son caught dumping meat waste in temple ahead
of Eid al Adha

man who is said to be son of BJP Leader Gireesh was caught red handed

8) India's Freedom Movement: RSS is trying to insert itself into the
slot where it does not belong

It is true that Mr. Hedgewar did take part in this movement and was
jailed for that, but that was purely at personal level to be able to
meet the people who might support his agenda of Hindu Rashtra. There
is not a single writing of his or of RSS exhorting the people to
participate in the same.
