Muslim (Islamic) Halal food in Myanmar

July 21, 2011

NOTE: Malaysia’s ASTRO wish to shoot some episodes in Myanmar regarding this topic. They wish to promote Myanmar Torism. They requested my help so I contacted Myanmar Embassy Senior Officials. ASTRO even promised to be accompanied by a Myanmar Tourism/Information/Special Police or Military office. They agreed to pay all expences, censor conditions etc. Although Myanmar Embassy support, Myanmar replied NO. It was the same reply last 20 yrs ago when they refused Malaysia’s Internationally renowned Chef Wan’s request. Why did Myanmar Gov want to stay under the moonlight in the holow of a Bamboo or are they enjoying the pool of water in the footprint of a bullock?

Mutual trust and understanding could drive out the Religious Fanatism

February 23, 2011

Don’t let our-selves become religious fanatics. Extremism is always wrong. Acting extremely is always bad, especially in religious matters. So we could conclude that Religious Extremists are worse people on earth. All the religions including Islam teaches us to practice moderation. Buddha also advised the followers to choose the moderate, middle path.Siddhartha (563-483 BC) followed the extreme path for many years in meditating but could not get enlightenment until he changed to the moderate path. 

Ignorance, fear of losing out and hatred usually pushed us to the edge to become an extremist.  

Truth and knowledge are the tools to fight Ignorance but also essential. We must accept that we cannot achieve trust by deceiving others. If there is mistrust, the fear grows and leads to unwanted, undesirable preparations for the possible aggression.

Cover of Forgive and Forget

Where there is hatred, let me sow Love.
Where there is doubt, let me sow Faith.
Where there is darkness, let me sow Light.
Where there is despair, let me sow Hope.
Where there is injury, let me sow Pardon.
For it is in Giving that we receive.
It is in Pardoning that we are pardoned.
It is in dying that we are born to Eternal life.

(St. Prancis.)
