Sofiya Rangwala on FB---some fake ID created by right wing groups ??

Here is what she has to say . the post has gone viral . but reading her other posts it is hard to believe that a muslim lady is outdoing the right wingers in right wing stuff . also she is too goodlooking to be real . just too perfect .

copy/paste


Amidst a fake atmosphere of Intolerance being created in India, in the last 1 month, I owe my version of what I, a Muslim lady, living and working in India feel like. This has been due from me since sometime. Now, I feel the water has gone above the head and I too need to share my views. So, here it is.

I am a Muslim lady, a practicing dermatologist by profession and I run my own high- end laser skin clinic, in Bangalore. I was brought up in Kuwait and at the age of 18, came to India to pursue medical education. I decided to stay back in India while almost all my friends left India for greener pastures. Not even once did I consider that being a Muslim could create a problem for me, as my sense of nationalism held me back to my roots and so here I am, serving my country since the last 20 years.

I studied in Manipal, Karnataka. I lived alone like all students do. While I was in college, all my professors were Hindus and almost all the people who I would interact with were Hindus as well. There is not a single incident when anyone showed partiality towards me based on my gender or religion. Every single one of them was kind and in fact sometimes, I felt as though they made an extra effort to make feel like I was one of them. I am ever so grateful to all of them for making my life in Manipal as comfortable as it could get.

After leaving Manipal, I relocated to Bangalore with my husband. By then I had been married and so we decided to make our life in Bangalore. There is a reason, why we chose Bangalore and here is where I will talk about my husband. He is a Muslim too, with a very typical first name, Iqbal. He is an aerospace engineer with MTech from IIT-Chennai and PhD from Germany. His profession takes him to the most highly secured organizations of India, like DRDO, NAL, HAL, GTRE, ISRO, IISc, BHEL; you name it and be assured that he has visited all of them without any hassles. Not even once he has been stripped off or asked for special security clearance or any such bias has been shown towards him. And NO, things have not changed even after Modi gov came into power. Things are in fact more disciplined and streamlined even at government organizations, from what I hear from my husband. As a matter of fact, Iqbal has been completely stripped each time he traveled to US and was under secret surveillance while he was doing his PhD in Germany, after the 9/11 attacks on US. We literally received a letter from the German government that he has been cleared and is not anymore under suspicion. Talk about Muslim paranoia! Its very understandable too due to the current situations in the world. My husband is highly respected and loved by the people he works with, and all of them happen to be Hindus. None of this has changed even in recent times, so Intolerance is just a word for us on a practical basis.
I opened my clinic last year, just before Modi gov came into power. I am a law-abiding citizen and I file my taxes like service tax on a monthly basis. I have never indulged in any activities, which could put me into any kind of trouble. I am comfortably running my clinic, which is doing very well, thanks to all my patients and clients, who all happen to be Hindus. A handful of my patients are from other communities. My entire staff is Hindu, and believe me when I say that they take better care of my clinic than I could any day! I interact with bankers, government officers and with so many people on a daily basis. Not even once in the last 20 years, did I have the need to even think of leaving India! My entire family lives abroad and all that I need to do is just decide that I don’t want to stay here. I have open offers of opening clinic in Kuwait, which would fetch me huge amount of revenue and yet why should I stay in India, if I am not happy and if I am facing any kind of bias?

In Kuwait, we are considered as NOBODY. Yes, despite being in Kuwait for the last 40 years or so, my family is still considered as expatriates, with no rights. We need to renew our resident permit periodically and the laws there constantly keep changing, making the life of expatriates only harder. We have to strictly comply with their rules and laws, which is fine but we are openly discriminated. They consider Asians as third grade people, while giving preference to their citizens, Arabs and Whites. We are not unhappy there but we have no sense of belonging either. At least, I never had and never have even when I visit Kuwait now. We are Muslims in a Muslim country, and yet we are considered as Indians with no special regards. I figured long back ago, that India is the only country, where I will have a sense of belonging. You are an Indian-American in US, Indian-Canadian in Canada, Indian-British in UK and so on but only in India you are an Indian. Period. Rest can say whatever they want and defend their choices but this is a fact. You can only feel at home, in your own home. I have lived in different places and everywhere I stand out but in India. No body in India asks me, ‘Are you an Indian?’, and this is what makes all the difference.

So, what are these celebrities ranting about? An ordinary citizen like my husband and I are not facing any such issues, then what have they faced? Why is Amir Khan’s wife, Kiran Rao feeling so afraid? They are prominent people, living in posh localities, their children study in the best of schools and they have personal security escorting them at all times. I travel alone everyday and yet don’t feel afraid. I want to know as a responsible citizen, from Amir Khan and Shahrukh Khan as well, why did they make such irresponsible statements and spoil the image of the 13 crores of Muslims in India? Who the hell are they to make public statements based on their personal perception? Who gave them the liberty to tarnish the image of my country on an International level, that Muslims are not safe in India? How dare Pakistan invites them to stay in Pakistan? I feel hurt when I read the statements of my Hindu friends on Muslims. I feel afraid that they are being pushed to the limit and the tolerance and acceptance that I have enjoyed all these years, might just vanish! I feel afraid that my own people might shun me and I may get alienated in my own country, because of a handful of ungrateful bunch of fools! How long can I expect majority of Hindus to tolerate this nuisance? It’s high time that Muslims understand the value of the freedom and acceptance that we enjoy in India and if not, I pray that my Hindu fellow citizens continue to keep their patience.

No reason for it to not be real. Most of the "wala" are bohras which are not exactly mainstream Muslims (AFAIK, they are not even considered muslims by the 'true muslims').

It's not that there are no sensible peacefuls. Just that hey are too miniscule to cause even a whimper.

But believe Jinnah was a Bohra. Apparently his Mother's name was Mithibai.

Re: Sofiya Rangwala on FB---some fake ID created by right wing groups ??

these are couple of her posts . makes me wonder if she is for real . is the person writing this blog really a muslim ??

Quote:
This is what Shari'a Law is all about. Kill anyone and everyone who does not agree to Islam or who tries to abandon it. There is nothing called as human rights. Is this also a consequence of misinterpretation? If yes, then kindly, can any Muslim tell me who is following the true Islam if even Saudi Arabia, the custodian of Islam is wrongly misinterpreting the Quran?
Quote:
If animals were meant for human consumptuon and are created by God for human pleasures, then why do animals cry in pain when they are subjected to slaughter? As per God's will, shouldn't the animal willingly give itself up? Have you ever seen any animal feeling happy while being cut up? Think, instead of following man made religious texts, ridden with fallacies. Animals are beautiful creations of the Creator, and have every right to live like humans. To consider them as lowly beings, created for our taste buds is the lowest level of thinking possible.

Havent checked this out, but i had the same question since 2003 as to all those who are posting in Newspaper comments are real or few Sangh parivar workers in different IDs. i kept seeing the same comments. Only in the last few years found that many were real life persons.

BTW, one can have the same question about Tarak Fatah too

Real education and exposure to different cultures can set one's mind free

I knew muslim neighbors in Bangalore who had never cooked idli, dosa, veggies at home. Making friends with my mother, the ladies started to cook more vegetarian food, and reduced meat consumption to only twice a week compared to all 7 days in almost every meal. Grandma in one family commented that they were Hindus until 3-4 generations back.

Some Congressis and AAPtards on twitter believe this intolerance remark by Amir is to divert attention from Ambani's scam.

Found her FB post adapted as a blog article on huffington post ..

http://m.huffpost.com/in/entry/8660876

Also this at the bottom of the page.

Here is a user comment on timesofindia.com

Quote:
Overall, Muslims are not a happy lot.
I actually feel very sad for this as a human being.
They’re not happy in Gaza
They’re not happy in Egypt
They’re not happy in Libya
They’re not happy in Morocco
They’re not happy in Iran
They’re not happy in Iraq
They’re not happy in Yemen
They’re not happy in Afghanistan
They’re not happy in Pakistan
They’re not happy in Syria
They’re not happy in Lebanon
So, where are they actually happy?
They’re happy in Australia
They’re happy in England
They’re happy in France
They’re happy in Italy
They’re happy in Germany
They’re happy in Sweden
They’re happy in US & Canada
They’re happy in INDIA
Surprisingly, they’re happy in almost every country that is not Islamic!
And who do they blame?
- Not Islam
- Not their leadership
- Not themselves
AND, THEY FIND THE BLAME WITH THE COUNTRIES THAT THEY ARE HAPPY IN!
And furthermore, they want to change the countries they’re happy in, to be like the countries that they came from where they were unhappy.
Buddhists living with Hindus = No Problem
Hindus living with Christians = No Problem
Christians living with Shinto = No Problem
Shinto living with Confucians = No Problem
Confucians living with Bahai’s = No Problem
Bahai’s living with Jews = No Problem
Jews living with Atheists = No Problem
Atheists living with Buddhists = No Problem
Buddhists living with Sikhs = No Problem
Sikhs living with Hindus = No Problem
Hindus living with Bahai’s = No Problem
Bahai’s living with Christians = No Problem
Christians living with Jews = No Problem
Jews living with Buddhists = No Problem
Buddhists living with Shinto = No Problem
Shinto living with Atheists = No Problem
Atheists living with Confucians = No Problem
Confucians living with Hindus = No Problem
But..
Muslims living with Hindus = Problem
Muslims living with Buddhists = Problem
Muslims living with Christians = Problem
Muslims living with Jews = Problem
Muslims living with Sikhs = Problem
Muslims living with Bahai = Problem
Muslims living with Shinto = Problem
Muslims living with Atheists = Problem
