[Som] Discussion moving closer home

NOW meri_awaaz also heard at webpages of many offenders.

Understandably people do not find it palatable to join this discussion group/blog and would rather prefer discussion itself moving closer home to actual webpages of offenders. Please get ready for the move and have Google sidewiki and 'bookmarking' plug-ins configured in your browsers. Here is the tabular list of some of the bookmark entries found.

  1. Whistleblower Blog  
  2. Ripoff at CIC and IIMA  
  3. Prof. B H Jajoo  
  4. Prof. S K Barua  
  5. Prof. T P Rama Rao  
  6. Prof. G Raghuram  
  7. Main webpages of IIM Ahmedabad  
  8. Dr. Vijaypat Singhania  
  9. Mr. Ashank Desai  
  10. Mr. Sunil Mittal  
  11. Mr. Noel Tata   
  12. Mr. N C Vasudevan  
  13. Mr. M B Lal     
  14. Prof. S S Mantha

'sue me if you can' attitude of offenders and stress that it causes on whistleblowers with limited resources force them to go offbeat. Beauty of bookmarking tools (Sidewiki, stumbledupon, delicious, etc) is that they help people express their voice of dissent.

Islamic terrorism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Islamic terrorism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Discussion on Terrorism, Muslim, Islam, Religion,

Bernard Lewis notes that "Islam, as a religion" is "particularly conducive to terrorism or even tolerant of terrorism," in his own words:

Islam has had an essentially political character (...) from its very foundation (...) to the present day. An intimate association between religion and politics, between power and cult, marks a principal distinction between Islam and other religions. (...) In traditional Islam and therefore also in resurgent fundamentalist Islam, God is the sole source of sovereignty. God is the head of the state. The state is God's state. The army is God's army. The treasury is God's treasury, and the enemy, of course, is God's enemy.[7]
