  1. The Never Ending Thread

    That's false. Shabana Azmi has been an outspoken critic of the Triple Talaq for years. http://www.financialexpress.com/india-news/shabana-azmi-speaks-up-against-triple-talaq/305629/ She is also pro the Uniform Civil Code.
  2. No one killed Aarushi Talwar!

    Even Ganeshran would big up the Noida police so much. The reality is: They totally botched up the investigation. Most police stations have their set of media people whom they sell 'scoops' to. This probably caused the crime scene contamination to such a level that it wasn't possible to gather any meaningful forensic evidence. Prima facie, Noida Police found Hemraj missing and his cell phone unavailable/switched off. So in their first press conference, they declared him to be the murderer and also said that they had requested the BSF to strengthen vigil along the Nepal border. A day later they found his body on the terrace. The 'investigation' was so shoddy that they didn't even bother searching the entire home. Even though, allegedly, there were blood stains leading to the terrace all on the staircase.
  3. Happy Diwali to all !!!

    Happy Diwali everyone
  4. @coffee_rules The housing bias *does* exist. Javed Akhtar's wife Shabana Azmi was denied a home on account of her religion. And it is the registered housing society's call on whom to lease/sell homes to. They can discriminate, and they did. Javed Akhtar did not communalize the issue at all. You are mixing it with Emran Hashmi's case, where he was refused a home on account of celebrity lifestyle and his lawyer played ( very poorly, I may add) the communal card. Also Indian Muslims have all right to speak about the Rohingya issue. They are stake holders too, in the future of this country. I do not know on what grounds you make statements that Indian Muslims shouldn't comment on the Rohingya issue. @mishra 2 hours is a little too long. My attention span isn't that long, unless the documentary has SRK and a few songs. Shall watch it over the next few weeks. And we are not in an Islamic country. We are in India. What Sharia lists out as a punishment for apostasy is irrelevant. The harsh reality is that if we had a speedier judiciary, then the kangaroo sharia courts that are set up every now and then would have no relevance. Besides, in India the diktaats of the Muslim Law boards are not binding. Most of the parties which lose out, take the cases to the regular courts. @Gollum I have a Sunni father and a Bohri mother. Where would I fall on your hate-o-meter?
  5. Pandya & Pathan: The Tale of Two All-rounders

    Soodz, I agree with you on Irfan Pathan. But don't be hating on Munaf Patel. He's always performed when it mattered. Very economical bowler in the world cup. Integral part of the winning team. And he's had two great IPL seasons for Mumbai Indians. Definitely not in the same league as Sreesanth who was borderline crazy. Don't know who RPS is.
  6. Why don't you give us some insights into the Kamal Hassan Kejriwal meet instead? Or what Rajnikant might do next, politically speaking. No one is interested in Pappu. Not even other members of the Congress party.
  7. Doesn't anyone else find this clerics' random usage of "72" out of place and extremely random?? There were more than 72 followers when he uttered these moronic threats. Maybe he was thinking of something else. Gulshan Grover mode: Dirty mind /Gullu mode.
  8. A wading celebration is when you wade into a pool of false enemy propaganda and call out their bluff. Keep up. *cough cough histrionics cough cough*
  9. What song are you currently listening to ?

    Mere Mehboob Qayamat hogi The Sanam Puri version https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M6Ul3ASaFLU
  10. This is a faux pas of epic proportions. This lady has been a career diplomat, including the Pakistani ambassador to the US. Really shoddy work from her and her team. Not that our Administrative/Foriegn Services are in the best of shape, but at least we don't keep taking in the same select set of sifarshi elites. For this kind of a mistake on such a stage, an Indian diplomat or his team would have lost his/her job.
  11. All the Khojas I've met in the US (New Jersey area mainly) tend to speak in the taporiest dialect of Bambaiyya Hindi among themselves. Even more Bambaiyya than the actual taporis in Mumbai. Tell na what hoinga in next episode? Payle bhi main woich boli thi. Not an accent, but they just mix Gujju+Bombay Hindi+ English all into one.
  12. Our numbers are increasing like never before and biologists say we are in the process of getting extinct!! Sounds very odd and counter intuitive. Anyway, this is totally off topic.
  13. The Never Ending Thread

    Actually you got me thinking here. The first mukhda of the song contains shabaab pe main zara si, sharaab pheinkunga.... The mad moulvi brigade would find that a lot more offensive fatwa-worthy than purdahnasheen ko bepurdah na kar doon
  14. The Never Ending Thread

    @Stuge Is that ad your idea? Are you the copy writer behind this?
  15. Just peeked out of my window. Things look calm.
  16. Hardcore Mullah? Do you know that Javed Akhtar has had death threats from Muslim groups. I find this specific question very logical. If elements of the Muslim Rohingyas are the ones killing the Hindu Rohingyas (and Christian and Buddhist according to one of the articles posted above), why are they fleeing with the Muslims? Here is an article from the ToI. Not the best source, but it offers a good bird eyes view. What it hints is that Chinese state has invested in the Rakhine region. And they may need to displace certain regions to carry out mining. Hence the Chinese tacitly support the current actions of the Myanmar government. We and most of the nations to our West are getting caught up with this religion driven narrative here and losing sight of the bigger picture. As a nation, India should be concerned that the Chinese are mining right in our backyards. Best for us if all the Rohingyas (of whatever denomination) are provided safety and continue staying in their natural homeland.
  17. See the movie and find out. Part of the proceeds would also go to the brave shaheeds needy family. But do pull an NRI on this one and buy a pirated copy. Buy an original DVD.
  18. Interest rate in FD

    I haven't heard of anyone who got a loan from ICIC bank.
  19. The Never Ending Thread

    No. The "Purdahnasheen ko bepurdah na kard doon" part of the song is an euphemism to expose something hidden/secretive.
  20. Where are you from ?

    Hah! By that logic I should call all the Bawas/Bawis living in Parsi Colony, Dadar as MaMus
  21. Site Feedback

    Amazing post. I upvoted you too.
  22. What song are you currently listening to ?

    Mere Rashk-e-Qamar from Baadshaho
  23. The Never Ending Thread

    What exactly is blasphemous with "Parda hai Parda" ? But then again trust the mad moulvi brigade to issue fatwas against the sun for shining with equal intensity on the kaffirs as it does on the believers.
  24. Interest rate in FD

    After Demonetization, most banks have a lot of money. They don't want to keep some more in the form of FDs. What you should be doing is taking huge loans and going to nations where we don't have an extradition treaty.
