Guiding statements

I belong to two circles of equal size, but which are not concentric. One is India, and the other is the Muslim world.

--- Maulana Muhammad Ali Jauhar

I am a Muslim and profoundly conscious of the fact that I have inherited Islam's glorious tradition of the last fourteen hundred years. I am not prepared to lose even a small part of that legacy. The history and teachings of Islam, its arts and letters, its culture and civilization are part of my wealth and it is my duty to cherish and guard them. But, with all these feelings, I have another equally deep realization, born out of my life's experience which is strengthened and not hindered by the Islamic spirit. I am equally proud of the fact that I am an Indian, an essential part of the indivisible unity of the Indian nationhood, a vital factor in its total makeup, without which this noble edifice will remain incomplete.

--- Maulana Abul Kalam Azad

Frequently Asked Questions

Editorial policy?

We do not necessarily agree to everything that you will find on these pages. We publish articles that will look at an issue from many different perspective to empower our informed readers to draw their own conclusion.

We will not publish articles that are racist, sexist or make baseless allegation against a person or community.

Financial backing

We are not funded by any Government or their agencies, we are helped by many individuals and organizations, who support us financially, with resources, and time.

Impartiality

We couldn't say it better than these words of James Brow :

I make no claim, therefore, that my account is either comprehensive or objective, let alone that it is the authoritative and definitive account of what happened ... Like all account it is partial, in the twin senses of being both incomplete and one-sided, and that partiality is inescapably mine. Nevertheless, while I cannot avoid imposing myself as a screen between the people ... and the reader, I am consoled by the thought that without my intervention few people would ever hear their voices... at all.

This is not because [they] are incapable of speaking for themselves. Far from it: they are as eloquent as anyone else. But inequalities in the distribution of power, wealth, and the technologies of communication virtually guarantee that, without the intervention of someone like myself, they would be heard only within a very narrow horizon.

Language

We have writers and contributors sitting in different corners of the world and therefore you will find different styles of language in our articles and stories. You will find US, UK, and Indian English on the pages of TwoCircles.net. We make no attempt to make it one standard, it is a reflection of our international readership and writers pool.

Aurangzeb

Aurangzeb was a king who happened to be Muslim,his loyalty was to himself only they used religion only to fulfill their agenda.Same for all the rulers of the past and present religion is a front for their self interest.So forget past and think how you can make world a better place to live,where a child can move safely and not blown by a bomb,all people can realize their potential fully without suppression and fear and live in peace.

Muslim victims of Gujarat riots 2002

To
The Editor

The following letter has been emailed by me to all the Members of Indian Parliament and of Gujarat Assembly

Regards

Hem Raj Jain

**********************************

Hon’ble Member of Parliament and of Gujarat Assembly

Sub:- Justice in Gujarat riots 2002 cases

Lot of heat has unnecessarily been generated as Supreme Court yesterday sent Zakia case to trial court. But the fundamental issue of getting justice to riot victims (including through the booking of derelict and complicit ‘Public Servants’) remains unaddressed in any meaningful way, in this din of highly politicized and diversionary atmosphere.

I am sure Your Honor very much wants to get justice for these riot victims and also to get culpable ‘Public Servants’ booked so that not only these riot victims get justice but governance in Gujarat gets further improved & cleansed and such pogroms do not take place in future in Gujarat and in rest of the country too (due to exemplary effect).

But I submit most humbly that I happen to know the law and can state with full sense of responsibility that these cases of riot victims are not being filed & contested (by victims as well as prosecutors) in a proper manner in Gujarat. Therefore some extremely important and relevant provisions of criminal law are not being invoked. Hence real & powerful culprits (the culpable “Public Servants’) are not properly booked with the result chances of getting justice against other accused too have been / are very low.

I am prepared to go to Ahmadabad and help / assist in this process and can show that within in a period of one month of filing few petitions / applications in court / courts of Gujarat, how the tables can be turned in favor of these victims of Gujarat riots 2002 and also in favor of strengthening the criminal jurisprudence in Gujarat.

It will be appreciated, if Your Honor could let me know the names and addresses of the people (including victims) whom I should meet in Ahmadabad / Gujarat so that these petitions / applications can be filed in court / courts of Gujarat.

I am further prepared to stay, at my own expenses, for an year or two in Ahmadabad / Gujarat in order to ensure that theses cases including proposed petitions / applications reach logical and legal end in favor of these victims of Gujarat riots 2002 and also in favor of strengthening the criminal jurisprudence in Gujarat / India.

With regards

Yours truly

Education

Dear sir,

It is really good to see that you have developed a website to raise the voice of Muslim and especially the Indian muslim, which are highly under respreseted in the country. The main reason for this is not the judiciary system rather it's te lack of we Muslim to do something for the community.

Indian Muslim are not poor. If you go out and see around Mumbai a good number of Muslim people are doing excellent business and making some handsome money. The problem however is the lack of Muslim to follow the teaching of Quran and Prophet Muhammad (SAW). We are more into making money rather then also investing it into the community.

There is a serious need to invest in the field of education and housing. People not only need to get main stream education but also need to understand the Quran and I mean not just able to read it in Arabic but to very well able to understand it. As Quran provides solution to every problem.

One way I feel to achieve this is through investment by our wealthy brothers into eduction which should be par with international school. This does not necessaraily means we may open new posh school rather invest in Urdu schools which already exist. Provide them with good teachers, facilities, etc. As good number of muslim children go to these schools are are not able to train them with skills to compete with other people and therefore the community remains illiterate and are forced to take lower grade job and which in turn makes the community poor.

So it's a big responsiblity on the wealthy Muslims to make generous contribution. Here I would like to highlight another problem and even if people agree to my above point they still wont be able to do so as there is no single source available which they can go and say, this is my money I trust you, now just use it the way you want to. Now this means we need a very well established and a reliable institution, where in yours website or organization will come into picture.

So rather then just highlighting the issue and hoping that the government will do something about it, we should rather do something by ourself because it hurts me when I see a poor old Muslim women begging or a Muslim youth just doing things which un-Islamic. Quran is such a great literature which has the power to change the entire world, but it's our failure to understand and follow it has made us this week.

Please do let me know if I can be of any help as you have taken step in the right direction. People reading this please come forward for the sake of our brothers and our future.

Salam.

Do not forget Sonia is an American agent foisted on us by the US. Americans have managed to kill all probable PM candidates Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi, Sanjay Gandhi, Madhavrao Scidia, Rajesh pilot etc. It is only because of Dr. Abdul Kalam
India was saved as he refused give Oath to Sonia.
From the time of 1857 when Marathas fought to save the throne of Bahadurshah Jafar British have followed the policy of divide and Rule which even now the present government is following. It is the duty of Muslims to unite India Pakistan and Bangla Desh so that we can fight with American might.

Serious Question to muslims of India

When clemsford reform was accepted that envisaged partition of India on basis of religion 90% of muslims in India voted in favor. My honest question to all muslim scholars here is, Why are so many muslims still in India even after taking their fair share of land and Why did muslim turn from 8%(1947) to 22%(2004)?

Slow loading time on your site

Hi,

I visited twocircles.net through Google and it took the site a very long time to load.

At first I thought it was a problem with my browser, but after checking the site using Speed-on-Net's website speed analyzer, I noticed the reported load time was extremely slow.

You should check and fix these issues. Have a look:
