On my social media news feed I came across dubbed videos and morphed photographs to ridicule the diction and posture of one Political figure. Politicians’ misconduct only allows us to scrutinize their political affairs and not to scorn their personalities. Such act of ridicule is considered immoral and unethical. #Thought
"O true believers, let not men laugh other men to scorn; who peradventure may be better than themselves: Neither let women laugh other women to scorn; who may possibly be better than themselves. Neither defame one another; nor call one another by opprobrious appellations. An ill name it is to be charged with wickedness, after having embraced the faith: And whoso repenteth not, they will be the unjust doers." [49:11] #Koran

Eid al-Ghadeer, observed by Shia Muslims on the 18th of Dhu al-Hijjah in the Islamic calendar, is a celebration of the appointment of Ali ibn Abi Talib by the Islamic prophet Muhammad as his successor. The festival also marks the anniversary of Muhammad’s sermon, as described in Hadith of the pond of Khumm in which Muhammad states, “Whomsoever’s master I am, Ali is also his master. O God, love those who love him, and be hostile to those who are hostile to him.
Shia Muslims celebrate the day with a tradition of a mass oath to reasserting their commitment to Islam, in the same manner as individual Shia adults take an oath on reaching adulthood.
We are living in exceptional times. Scientists tell us that we have 10 years to change the way we live, avert the depletion of natural resources and the catastrophic evolution of the Earth’s climate.
The stakes are high for us and our children. Everyone should take part in the effort, and HOME has been conceived to take a message of mobilization out to every human being.
For this purpose, HOME needs to be free. A patron, the PPR Group, made this possible. EuropaCorp, the distributor, also pledged not to make any profit because Home is a non-profit film. HOME has been made for you : share it! And act for the planet.
Home is a 2009 documentary by Yann Arthus-Bertrand. The film is almost entirely composed of aerial shots of various places on Earth. It shows the diversity of life on Earth and how humanity is threatening the ecological balance of the planet.

Hope will never be silent.Harvey Milk
Harvey Bernard Milk (May 22, 1930 – November 27, 1978) was an American politician who became the first openly gay person to be elected to public office in California when he won a seat on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. Politics and gay activism were not his early interests; he was not open about his homosexuality and did not participate in civic matters until around the age of 40, after his experiences in the counterculture of the 1960s.
Milk served almost 11 months in office and was responsible for passing a stringent gay rights ordinance for the city. On November 27, 1978, Milk and Mayor George Moscone were assassinated by Dan White, another city supervisor who had recently resigned but wanted his job back. Milk’s election was made possible by and was a key component of a shift in San Francisco politics.
Despite his short career in politics, Milk became an icon in San Francisco and a martyr in the gay community. In 2002, Milk was called “the most famous and most significantly open LGBT official ever elected in the United States”. Anne Kronenberg, his final campaign manager, wrote of him: “What set Harvey apart from you or me was that he was a visionary. He imagined a righteous world inside his head and then he set about to create it for real, for all of us.” Milk was posthumously awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2009.
Wise people despite opposite personalities can dwell in peace, only fools in spite of same natures can’t spare moment without clash.Shuayb Ganatra
Today I treated myself with Soda (drink) and Pan (mouth refreshment) bought with Eidi (money) given by my mother, and I was happy as I was in my childhood. Because that child still lives in me and I wish that he never grows up… Happiness is not anywhere or in anything. Happiness is within you. To be happy all you need to do is just, be! Be that child and don’t let him ever die.Shuayb Ganatra
In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.Martin Luther King, Jr.
By refusing to comprehend the situation and blowing it out of proportion, you do not only lose your temper but also the friend. And there’s no greater loss than loosing a friend.Shuayb Ganatra
