A slightly shaky start as I was supposed to publish this yesterday, but here goes anyway. Readers are welcome to send me links for next week’s round-up.
1) Haroon asks whether “the [Kashmiri] rubble popped a Jihadi bubble” in Osama, Osama, Where Art Thou?.
2) Sonia Faleiro in Mumbai writes an excellent series of profiles of former dance bar girls in the city. Former because it recently banned the whole trade. She sheds light on how they’re coping since (first, second, third).
4) Simon Barrow writes on the demonstration against the Racial and Religious Hatred Bill (Rohan on the bill itself) and finds it ironic that “Christians who called for a ban on Jerry Springer â€“ The Opera were now singing the praises of â€˜free speechâ€™”. Heh. I wrote on this before here and here.
6) Yusuf Smith is launching Blogistan to “represent the true, moderate face of Islam in Britain” and be a counterweight to “certain media monitoring sites run by immature people”, and is looking for volunteer bloggers. He starts by pointing out MPAC’s tendency for “hand-wringing and mud-flinging”.
