Niqab- When Religion Becomes a Matter of Dress

There has perhaps been no garment that has aroused so much controversy as the Niqab or face-veil worn by a small minority of Muslim women. Although worn by only a very small percentage of women, it is conspicuous as can be and grabs attention wherever it is worn, making one wonder whether it is really for modesty as it is made out to be, or for attention.

Terror funder from Bangladesh bribes British politicians

An ex-military officer from Bangladesh invested £12 million in the United Kingdom and the authorities didn't even ask how the money was brought into that country, because the man is patronizing and funding the British politicians and political parties.

Mangala’s Unwarranted Innuendo

The anti-Sinhala Buddhist lobby and some aided NGO’s have taken to Mangala’s recent utterance that ‘Sri Lanka is not a Sinhala Buddhist country’ in a big way stating that only he had the political courage to state the ‘bitter truth’.

Where are the leaders?

It is really pathetic to note while Sri Lanka is left leaderless the minority Muslim community too has been an orphan for long with the same terrible shortcoming. They are religiously divided as in politics with various sects and one of them being totally opposed to Islamic principles and opting for violence means to convey their message.
