Muslim in India at the time of COVID19

India is under complete lock down since 24 th of March. Initially the lock down was planned for three weeks but it now got extended until the 3 rd of May. All public transport got stopped and we are only allowed to go outside for things which are absolutely necessary as getting food for example. The state borders are closed; the government is telling us to stay inside our homes. Not everyone is privileged enough to stay at home and do home office. As anyone else in the world, In India, people from marginalised groups are the most effected by this lock down. For example, the migrant workers or the people who earn their livelihood on a daily basis. They are starving because they can't earn any money at the moment. The government is trying to provide food to those people but it's far from requirement. In many parts of the country, it is the civil society which is putting a lot of effort and resources into help for those people, wherever it is required. Minority

This Ramzan, A Look Back At Everyone Who Taught Me Love, Respect And Equality

Ramzan Mubarak to all of you, no matter where are you from? What Faith you are following or even if you do not believe in anything. What I strongly believe, religion must be or should be in only personal spheres, in the democratic society or country. These days entire world is passing through the unprecedented crisis, due to Pendemic like COVID19. As I have learned about the Islam during my days stayed in my native village in the Bihar, I have not studied anything specific about the religion, but I have learned love compassion respect responsibility or most important thing about equity, not in the textual knowledge instead, seen to my elders or their   interaction with people of all faith or background with equal respect and love. I can recall one instance, when I was in class 8, my father was started searching good tutor to teach us at our home in the village, lastly, he found one young gentleman, his name was Ram Kishun Ram, he was very good in the subjects like Math a

Babasaheb Ambedkar: The Indefatigable Leader Of The Marginalised

We are remembering one of the greatest leaders of modern India. Dr. Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar popularly known as Babasaheb Ambedkar was a social reformer, public intellectual and one of the finest minds of the 20th century. He was born on April 14, 1891. The Dalit moment which Ambedkar’s life and struggle did so much to shape, was not limited to the state of Maharashtra only. In fact, under his leadership, Dalit movement suffused all over the country in the pre-independence period which later turned into a much larger movement within the framework of the Indian Constitution. He was also an ardent supporter of women and labor rights. He was independent India’s first law and justice minister, the architect of the Indian Constitution, and founding father of the Republic of India. In India and elsewhere, he was often called Babasaheb, meaning “respected father” in Marathi and Hindi. If Gandhi was Bapu, the father of the nation, Ambedkar was ‘Baba’ to his people and a great

How Is Possible To Engage With Public On The Misconception Regarding The Religion ?

  I have always enjoyed traveling in the train, for two reasons one this is economical for people like us to bear the travel expense and other driving factors, you can meet and make friends with new people, so we can learn.  Almost for twenty years, I have been in public life for my study and work. I don't have any hesitations to share my points of views with anyone, even with other people of different ideology or believe groups. I have many friends, who have been associated with right-wing ideology “ RSS” but we had always space for agreement on the differences. I have been staying outside of my village for more than twenty years, whenever, my father talk to me on phone, he always gives me one strong warning don’t talk in the public place on the sentimental issues like religion or terrorism. But, I always ignored his advice, however, in the present context of the environment , I had to rethink my position for not following my father’s instruction. Last week, I had t
