A Video Away


First things first, I strongly condemn the anti-Islam video titled as "The Innocence of Muslims". Not only has it uncovered the underlying hate in some sections of the society in the west, it has also displayed the amount of ignorance that is still generally prevalent about Islam. Though, I haven’t seen the video myself but the whole act clearly shows that the theory of “Clash of Civilizations” is still applicable, if not literally then in an alternative context at least. This “anti-Islam” video has invited a wave of anger and agitation around the Muslim world, which is genuine in a sense that the video mocked Islam and the Prophet (P.B.U.H). However, it is the events of the past week that have led me to write only the second post of the year on this page.
