Ok, so I haven’t actually done a blogosphere round up for three weeks, but I’m trying to make amends dammit. This is by no means comprehensive coverage. Simply mentions of blog entries (and two articles) I’ve found interesting recently.

  • The Renegade of Junk is furious that the Indian Supreme Court is making it worse for rape victims with their use of language.
  • Sakshi finds it bizarre that Jackie Chan wants the Asian (Chinese and Indian) film industry to “unite” against the Americans.
  • Riz has launched a new blog on market trading called Always Bet on Black.
  • Sepia Mutiny points to a Daily Show clip that satirises religious outrage.
  • Rezwan refers to a conference set up to deal with racism in Saudi Arabia.
  • Sonia Faleiro has written another great article, this time on Mumbai’s top transexual actor Bobby Darling.
  • Neha says that Global Voices, who she contributes to, is having a London meet. One for the diary folks.
  • 360 East reports on how the Amman bombings put Jordanian bloggers on the map.
  • Lenin points out the lies during Hurricane Katrina of people supposedly shooting at rescue helicopters.
  • Away from the blogosphere, The Register says there is one man to save the internet. And he is the Masood Khan, Pakistan’s Ambassador.
  • And finally, Maniac Muslim has written a funny article on Muslims at Hogwarts university trying to convert everyone.
  • Update: Philobiblion has this week’s Brit-blog roundup. Two entries stand out: Tim Ireland’s flash film for Tony Blair’s son Leo, and The Religious Policeman on executions in Saudi Arabia.

Feel free to add your links in the comments section. As ever, contact me to put forward your entries for next week.

    The Renegade of Junk is furious that the Indian Supreme Court is making it worse for rape victims with their use of language.

    Nonsense!!!

    Someone should tell Junk that this is a criminal case involving question of facts not a case involving question of law and the end result is that the criminal got punished.

    Judges are not philosophers or politically correct columnists.

    Bikhair should read Rezwan’s blog.

    I am waiting eagerly for her response !!!!

    Blue mountain, Manish has also written a stonking post on the shit shoveled on those from the subcontinent in Saudi (scroll down to below the pictures).

    Shouldn’t that be Londoners, Brumies, Mancs, etc, are your true brothers.. (one step at a time)

    Lol at El Cid. I agree!
    Blue Mountain – read Renegade’s post properly first. I totally agree with him.

    Muttawa’s (the Religious Policeman) blog isfrickin hilarious. I’ve been regularly reading it since the time it started. Boy the Saudis have quite a sense of humour.

    hmm looking at the global voices ‘summit’ which sounds like it could be interesting but also somewhat institutionalized.

    I’m not surprised people are against that Mosque because the Tablighis are involved. Just read Zia Sardar’s Desperately Seeking Paradise. They’re rote monkeys.

    Jamal I’m over the moon.

    Why do they need a mosque for?
    Are they gonna live in it?
    Thats abit fussy, while all the other sports men/women get hotel rooms, muslims need a mosque built for them.

    “It will be something never seen before in this country. It is a mosque for the future as part of the British landscape,” said Abdul Khalique, a senior member of Tablighi Jamaat, a worldwide Islamic missionary group that is proposing the mosque as its new UK headquarters.”

    Well look at that, its gonna be part of the British Landscape and will be there new headquarters.

    Being a muslim, this sort of behaviour from other muslims makes me cringe.
    Muslim athletes should just compete like all the other human beings around them.
    But no, lets be even more seperate from the society and environment around us.
    Lets build a huge ass mosque so everyone knows that its a mosque.
    Remember to have it written or better yet lit up on all sides of the structure and have a seperate fireworks display for it too.
    A more islamic fireworks display, hehe so many jokes come to mind.
    Its not just for our competitors, oh no; but for the average muslim spectator as well.
    Yep, all of us muslims should and are advised to go there, as being in the crowd full of non muslims is somehow not good enough.
    We got enough mosques as it is, and thats just in London.
    I dont think we need anymore, as its not really benefitting anyone.
    Especially muslims themselves.
