Flobots- Handlebars (Diving in to the inner meaning of this song)

Referring to my last post “Are we all Insane to just believe what you say? “ , I had said that I will be posting some more articles reflecting on how I feel powerful nations just like to dominate the other nations through their mediums, and one song which i heard around a year ago , by flobots -handlebars, shows what I intend to say. Have a look at the video below.

I am sure most of you have understood the inner meaning of this song , and agree with this bigger picture that USA is just dominating other small nations by using its power.

Please stop judging me ! I am not what you think I am !

There are all kinds of people in this world. There are one kind whom I do not like interacting much are those who go around giving their opinion on the basis of faith, culture,religion,money,ethics and various factors , terming someone as a good or a bad person.

Nobody in this world can be categorised as good or bad completely according to my opinion. Nobody.  Even a person who is a thief cannot be categorised as a bad person , just because he has stolen your stuff. Well of course he is a bad person for stealing your valuables and running away, but he has done that for his family , maybe ; or some other reason , but the underlying point of this debate is that you just cannot  come to a conclusion saying someone is evil or bad. I am not talking on behalf of all the thieves in the world or all “bad” , “evil ” people . I am saying this because I undergo this feeling while having debate about religion with people, and it comes to a point where I just keep my mouth shut and listen to what they say or else just leave the room.

People in my opinion do not go to heaven or hell just because of following the prophets or the holy books teachings, nor by visiting the holy places of worship. I am not an Atheist, but I am just an ordinary person who has a strong faith, and I believe that a person can be both just simple and not religious but still be worthy enough to step on the floors of heaven.

People often argue by saying that if you do not pray on time , or visit your holy places of worship you do not communicate to God , and you do not make him happy. A lot of arguments have been on that one. Well I just ask myself , does God fix appointments to listen to your prayers? Why specific moments or specific holy places to hear our voices? Why Pilgrimages to affirm your faith and make sure he listens to you. He listens to you anyway. Everywhere.

When I was a kid , my teacher told me that you can pray anywhere you like son, on the bus, while climbing the stairs to school, in the class, before going to sleep, just anywhere you want, he listens to you , & its true. He does listen to you , and is there helping you at each step, you just have to realise and feel His presence.

People do get upset and often have a huge argument about this topic, which lasts for hours and sometimes days , even months. All I say is do not judge people on the basis of culture , religion or any other beliefs. A human being is too complex to judge or understand.

I have seen people change , people who the whole world termed good turn bad and the bad turn good, for some reason they do change. People who people term as bad, do a lot of things for charity , but nobody knows. People who do a lot of good, are bad behind the curtains of society. It is very hard to judge, very hard.

Just one advice to all , do not generalise, judge , or comment on anybody untill you know them 100% , and even if you do , and do make up your mind about them, I request you to think twice before making that thought permanent , this world and we humans are more wierd and unique than you can imagine. 🙂

Is Being Human a Sin?

Well, with the growing sense of religious belief all over, are we loosing basic human facts of life? I asked myself this question quite some time ago, when once I was on a street in London, Waiting for a friend. As usual I was listening to music with my headphones on.

I like listening to music with big headphones which have noise cancellation. Alright so I was waiting at Edgware road near marble arch and was quite close to a shop which was selling some Islamic books and Quran Cd’s and medicines.

A few minutes later a guy who was constantly staring at me walks up and asks me weather I am a Muslim, I said yeah, and he insisted me to stop playing the songs on my ipod and listen to quranic verses as listening to music is “haram” (forbidden) in the quran.

I was shocked, and was speechless, that is religion gonna decide what kind of shirt I am gonna wear next???. It is pointless to argue on religion, and I hate to argue on it. Well the only thing that fueled me up and still does is that , why do people become so narrow minded and do not apply logic when it comes to faith and belief, I know its unquestionable, when discussing something so sensitive & as its something really personal. But yet, some kind of sense is really appreciated rather than blind belief/faith…

Peace! 🙂
