“Mahaguru58″ aka Zainol Abideen, Indian SUFI Muslim Penchant for Religious Bile Against Non-Muslims
Sexly affair, held in conjunction with the Prophet Muhammad’s birthday
is aimed at reversing moral decay in Muslim society.
LIVE MEMBER SAYS a woman’s sexual satisfaction increases withage despite low sexual desire, a new study has revealed. Researchers from the University of California,San Diego School of Medicine and the Veterans Affairs San Diego Healthcare System evaluated sexual activity and satisfaction as reported by 806 older women who are part of the Rancho Bernardo Study (RBS) cohort
OWC president Fauziah Ariffin said the campaign would urge Muslim couples to better emulate Muhammad’s life, which Muslims had strayed from.
“Of course the Prophet should be our reference, and this includes aspects of the family as well as our sex life,” she said at the campaign launch at Pusat Perdagangan Pelangi here.
“When the topic of sacred sex is brought up, many forget that it’s part and parcel of the affairs between man and wife, and is something we do every day.”
If Muslims live their lives while adhering to principles grounded in Islam, then all homosexual acts can be avoided, Fauziah added.
Earlier in her opening speech, she said Islam allowed sex but it must be “sacred sex” between a husband and wife, not gay or abnormal sex that went against God’s teachings.
“We feel compelled to invite Muslims to live the Islamic way. The husband leads and the wife follows, but it appears the faithful have failed,” she said.
The OWC, which believes women should behave like “first-class whores” for their husbands if they wished their marriages to succeed, last hit the headlines in October when it published an explicit guide to “Islamic sex”.
The book, which caused an uproar among the public and women’s rights groups, was later banned by the Home Ministry.
The ministry said the book was banned because of OWC’s links to the outlawed Al-Arqam movement, and for falling foul of the strict censorship guidelines of the Department of Islamic Development (Jakim).
The OWC was founded by Global Ikhwan, an offshoot of Al-Arqam.
The club has branched out to Indonesia, Singapore and Jordan, and claims to have 2,000 members, most of whom are Malaysians.

He does not have anything to worry unless there are skeletons in the closet.– Anwaristas
OCT 24 — His advisers may think he is Mr Cool but Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak is anything but that. He is definitely good for a public relations exercise of having breakfast at Village Park or watching a football match with the rakyat but everything is choreographed by his image makers.
Awek: Najib is a munafik ?Najib is the #1 Hypocrite like Mamak or worse ?
He does not have anything to worry unless there are skeletons in the closet.
If you observe the prime minister, he only enters the fray after either things have cooled down or when it is to take advantage with an opportunistic statement. He rarely leads the discussion on important or controversial issues. This is the same whether it is Bersih or the Umno yarn about a Christian conspiracy or the fiction about Lim Guan Eng’s son.
Only when forced to (Bersih) or when he sees an opportunity (Lim’s episode) will he offer Malaysians his wisdom.
So last night I read that he has finally spoken on the campaign to destroy a 16-year-old boy’s reputation. But instead of chastising his party members and Umno bloggers for once again lying, he instead tried to talk about how families of leaders should not be tarred with allegations and attacks.
That surely sounds like a self-serving statement by someone wanting to protect the FLOM. I admit I do not know the first lady. I don’t know if what the mainstream media says about her is true or whether what her online critics say about her is true but I do know this: she has insisted on being called the first lady of Malaysia and her organisation Permata benefits from taxpayers’ funds.
Therefore, her position is very different from that of a 16-year-old boy. And while we are on the subject of this boy, if there was any evidence of wrongdoing he should be charged as a juvenile and punished, not maligned by Umno for political gain.
The equivalent of going after this boy would be if the opposition picked on Najib’s young children. For example, focus on the daughter’s marriage to a boy from Kazakhstan. Now that would be in bad taste.
But it would be remiss of Malaysians if they did not put the scrutiny of the business activities of Mokhzani, Mukhriz or Mirzan or what the Razak brothers are up to especially if the stories are linked to government contracts and sweet deals.
By saying that families of leaders should be spared attacks, Najib was trying to give his political party a free pass. He does not have anything to worry unless there are skeletons in the closet.
So I would say that we should be careful not to malign young children of leaders but if the adult family members of leaders are robbing and looting, they should be exposed and hunted down.

In talking with audiences about my new book, “God’s Jury: The Inquisition and the Making of the Modern World,” I’ve found that the same questions come up over and over.
Here are the Top 10.
1. I know what the word “Inquisition” means, even use the word myself sometimes, but my history is shaky. What does it refer to?
It was a means used by the Church to enforce orthodoxy. Inquisitors would go out into troublesome regions, question people intensively, conduct tribunals and mete out punishments, sometimes harsh ones, like burning at the stake. Depending on the time and place, the targets were heretics, Jews, Muslims, Protestants, rationalists and sometimes people who held superstitious beliefs. The Inquisition everyone has heard of is the Spanish Inquisition, but there was more than one Inquisition, and the earliest, at the start of the 13th century, wasn’t in Spain. And although Jews were sometimes the focus of that first Inquisition, as they primarily were in Spain, the more urgent targets were Christian heretics in the south of France and northern Italy.
2. How many people were burned at the stake?
No one really knows. The inquisitors were excellent record-keepers — at times truly superb. One surviving document gives the expenses for an execution down to the price of the rope used to tie the victims’ hands. But a lot of the records have been lost. An estimate that has wide credibility among historians is that about 2 percent of those who came before Inquisition tribunals were burned at the stake, which would mean several tens of thousands of people. The rest suffered lesser punishments.
3. Over what period of time are we talking about?
Roughly 700 years. The official start is usually given as 1231 A.D., when the pope appoints the first “inquisitors of heretical depravity.” The Spanish Inquisition, which begins under Ferdinand and Isabella, doesn’t end until the 19th century — the last execution was in 1826. At the outset, the main focus was on Jews and “judaizers” — Christian converts of Jewish ancestry who were accused of secretly adhering to Judaism. The Roman Inquisition, created to fight the Reformation, and run from the Vatican, doesn’t come to an end until the 20th century.
4. Does it survive in any form? I sometimes hear about theologians today getting into trouble.
The Vatican’s Congregation of the Inquisition was formally abolished in 1908 — but it may be more correct to say it was renamed. It was turned into the Holy Office, which in the 1960s became the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. This is the department that Cardinal Josef Ratzinger ran before he became Pope Benedict XVI. It occupies the palazzo built for the Inquisition in the middle of the 16th century. And it’s still the department that keeps an eye on what theologians write, sometimes calling them on the carpet.
5. Does the Inquisition explain why Spain in some ways took longer to modernize than France or England? Historians do ask this question, but you’ll get different opinions. The “yes” answer will point to the wholesale expulsion from Spain in 1492 of many thousands of Jews — people who were often highly educated professionals. And it will point to the attempted suppression, over centuries, of intellectual inquiry of all kinds. The same kind of suppression occurred in Italy. The problem is figuring out how effective the suppression really was, not to mention disentangling the influence of the Inquisition from other factors. Bottom line, though: No one argues that the Inquisition was a force for enlightenment.
6. Did Torquemada himself have Jewish ancestry? Historians have looked into this pretty carefully. The consensus seems to be that Tomas de Torquemada, who directed the Spanish Inquisition in its earliest (and bloodiest) years, did not have Jewish ancestry, but other members of his extended family probably did. This wouldn’t have been unusual in Spain. Over the centuries there was considerable mixing among Christians, Muslims and Jews, especially in the higher ranks.
7. When I think “Inquisition,” I think “torture” — is that real or is it a myth?Torture was an integral part of the inquisitorial process, mainly to extract confessions — just as it was part of the systems used by secular courts of the time. Modern historians explain that the Church tried to regulate torture, establishing clear guidelines for its use. Unfortunately, limitations on torture never really work — that’s one lesson from the Inquisition, and from the recent American experience. It’s never hard to justify applying a little more physical coercion once you’ve decided that physical coercion is fine to begin with. Medieval inquisitors, limited to one session of torture per person, sometimes conducted a second or third or fourth, arguing that it was just a “continuance” of the first.8. Is waterboarding torture? Vice President Dick Cheney called waterboarding “a dunk in the water.” The Justice Department attempted to define torture so narrowly that nothing came up to the torture threshold unless it risked causing irreversible impairment, organ failure or death. The inquisitors believed that waterboarding was torture. That’s why they used it.
9. How does the Index of Forbidden Books fit into the picture?
It was created by the Roman Inquisition to deal with the onslaught of books — many of them advancing ideas the Church didn’t like — made possible by the printing press, and over the centuries the Index grew and grew. It existed for a very long time — it wasn’t abolished until 1966. The impulse to criticize still has some life. A decade ago Josef Ratzinger expressed concern over the “subtle seductions” of Harry Potter.
10. The “Making of the Modern World” part of your title — what’s the argument?The Inquisition was based on intolerance and moral certainty. It tried to enforce a particular view, often with violent means. There’s nothing new about hatred and persecution; human beings have been very good at this for millennia. What’s new about the Inquisition is that persecution is institutionalized. It persists for generation after generation. That requires organizational tools that were being newly developed in the Middle Ages. How do you create and manage a bureaucracy? How do you collect information and organize it in a way so that you can find what you need? How do you discover what people are doing and thinking? We take the ability to do all these things for granted. When you look at the Inquisition, you see these capabilities coming into existence. You see the world becoming modern.
