The Quranists are finally released !

Finally the national security released the five arrested Quranists after 130 days of arbitrary detention. They are now recovering safely in their homes and ruining medical checks/operations to heal their physical problems caused by the torture received during the arrest.

The Quranists were released because of lack of evidences. On the other hand, no decision was made regarding the accusation of Contempt of Religion, whether to transfer to court or to preserve it.

DEMOCRACY IN THE QUR’AN -I-

Quran & Democracy

Are they compatible?

Thursday September 22nd, 2005, by Muhammed Asadi


What has happened in modern bureaucratic societies, that parade as democracies (like the USA), is that the chance to reason and the ability to be free has been lost (see http://robots.asadi.org) that is the nature of a bureaucratic society: a society where standardization is the norm and the person is surrounded by rules that govern behavior from birth to death. Such “democracies” exists in form only and not in essence, here choices are not formulated by a “public” but rather insinuated upon a highly propagandized “mass society” that knows next to nothing regarding public issues. This is achieved by control of the “cultural apparatus” by a small aristocracy, the Power Elite. The “cultural apparatus”- language, education, status and technology- with the media and the formal educational institutions playing a dominant role, thus ensures that this elite achieves cultural hegemony. The person thinks he or she is free and living under a “democracy” but the reality of the situation is much different. Continue reading ‘DEMOCRACY IN THE QUR’AN -I-‘

fighting-terrorism.jpg

The question of how to fight Islamic terrorism preoccupies many Arab reformists who are working to denounce Islamist thought, to encourage independent and critical thinking, and to establish values of democracy and human rights in the Muslim world. For example, in February 2005, a group of reformists submitted to the U.N. a request that it establish an international court to judge Muslim clerics who incite to violence and bloodshed. The request was examined by the U.N. legal counsel and distributed to the U.N. Security Council.(1) Continue reading ‘Fighting Terrorism: Recommendations by Arab Reformists’

“Virtual Insanity”

That's not nature's way Well that's what they said yesterday There's nothing left to do but pray I think it's time I found a new religion Waoh - it's so insane To synthesize another strain There's something in these Futures that we have to be told. JAMIROQUAI
