Thank you; 6th Annual Holocaust and Genocide event

Dr. Harbans Lal and I want to thank each one of you for participating in the 6th Annual Holocaust and Genocides event on Sunday, January 27, 2013 at Unity Church in Dallas.


Dr. Amarjit Singh delivered a powerful key note address that caused us to seriously consider taking a few actions.   Mr. Hasan Mahmud shared about the Bangladesh Genocide of 1971, Dr. Petra Weldes talked about Stereotyping and its effects on the societies, Shah Alam Siddiqi brought up the genocides of the Urdu speaking Muslims in Bangladesh, and Kelly Obazee reflected on current massacres around the world.  Mike Ghouse talked about standing up for others and starts thinking about others suffering and move away from being me, me and me, and he shared the personal story of bringing a closure on Holocaust. Dr. Harbans Lal’s message about Sikhs, forgiveness and justice was powerful. 

I urge people of all faiths, excluding none to start being a part of others for a better tomorrow, and each one of us, reading this, and those involved in this need to work on it.

Mike Ghouse

  2. That's like Houston Texas being without a Country station. They also apparently believe that their customers who like a particular song they hear on the radio, are likely to purchase that song, which could add to downloads from i - Tunes. But mostly BBC Radios 4 and 5 because, being speech orientated, they're more like what I do, so I can learn
    lots from them.

  4. This about Nellie massacre of Assam on Feb 18, 1983. Given below is a reviews of book -25 years on...Nellie still haunts- by Hemendra Narayan.
    --
    Review

    The main piece of the book is more of personal impression of the author, than a hard news story by a professional. Hemendra Narayan, the journalist -- who more by instinct than design -- becomes a witness to the terrible mayhem of February 18, 1983, in central Assam. The traumatic incidents at Nellie still haunt him, and it comes out unmistakably in the chapter - Woman in the Green Sari. The woman, who had seen death all around and escaped, produced a 'surreal scream'; he says -- and adds, "The horrific images are still stuck in my mind."
    The magnitude of death and destruction that unfolded before them in an open clear picturesque setting - they were three media persons - would have overwhelmed anyone. It was an eerie setting because of the 'kill-burn-slay' psychology of the hundreds of armed men.By all accounts it was daring and brave for the journalists.
    The February 1983 Assembly elections were held to fulfill a Constitutional 'obligation'. The logic was that the polls could not be stopped because the President Rule could not be extended beyond one year, and that deadline was fast approaching. The supporters of movement against 'foreign' nationals were not only boycotting, but opposing the elections aggressively as well.
    As the election(s) process got going, "It was a strange scenario across the Brahmaputra valley -- right from Dhubri to Dibrugrah; depending on the population profile -- the killing lust had surcharged the atmosphere," the slim publication says in its preface.
    The toll around Nellie villages officially stood at 2,191.
    Mr B G Verghese, doyen of Indian journalism -- who has a special interest on the affairs of the North–East, says in his foreword remarks, "India must care and ponder over what happened, and we must all learn our several lessons as distinctive groups, wider communities, the Government..."
    The booklet, apart from being of interest to journalists even 25 years on -- should be of relevance to the students of contemporary history. Some of the documents used helps in understanding the overall situation of Assam in proper perspective. The documents in the publication, which includes that of the Lalung Darbar, the Election Commission and the report of the non-official Justice Mehta Commission, would be of great significance for some one, studying tumultous period of Assam and Indian history.

    below is the link to the book:
