Brussels

While the world is recovering from news of  Paris Attacks , We in Brussels are on  terror alert of highest level from past 3 days and it is extended to Monday as well. The city looks deserted , military deployed on all major locations, empty streets and  police patrolling everywhere ,even while writing this post I can hear sirens from my room within double glazed glass windows.

I can sense the fear even in the wind when I went outside for a quick walk this evening. People are going out  only for urgent things, the school and colleges are closed and offices have allowed home working for tomorrow. I am not a stay home person on weekends especially if I am told not to go out ,makes it even more difficult.

Blogging does helps and gets me away from the constant thoughts but then I go back to news update  every 10 minutes, it is a constant switching between this strange feeling of sadness ,boredom,  fear and a vacuum created by absence of happiness, I don’t know  how to put it exactly into words, a weird mix of  feelings and then moving my  windows  tab to  wordpress,  I start to read posts from my lovely blogger friends which actually made me feel better and normal again for some time. I have started  taking refuge in my writings when things get too much on my head,  I hope and pray that things get normal soon here and everywhere in the world.  The thought keeps coming to my head that  how long can we actually live in this fear, and how much can we be inside ?

I Stand with Humanity ! I Stand against Terrorism #PrayforParis

Like everyone else today,  I also woke up  to the horrifying and  shocking news of Paris Terrorist Attack and since then I couldn’t stop my mind and heart thinking about it. Paris  is not far from where I live and I have special memories attached to the city as it was my first European destination. I have lived in Paris for small time for my work and have visited this beautiful city many times.Imagining the places I have walked everyday, to be  filled with horror and terror is heart breaking. Thinking about the pain of  people who live there or who lost someone yesterday is numbing my brain . My heart is sad and nothing seems to comfort me right now and I   am hoping to find an escape through my blog.

What is happening in Syria, Lebanon  and what happened in Tunis few months back and now Paris, Human against Human  ? or I am making a mistake in calling them Humans, beast against humans ? no, would be insult to animals too, even they have rules but these terrorist have none,  how can someone with human heart pounding inside  kill someone he doesn’t know or has nothing to do with him ?

I as muslim feel more sad as to what happened,  because these demons claim to be Believing in same God and Prophet  whom I believe and who was sent  to this earth with message of Peace and a religion called Peace, I want to ask them :

” Do you even know the basic of your religion  or concept of Islam or  even its name !  forget about reading the book (would be a lot for you ) ,

Could anyone sane  who  belong to a peaceful community or  group do it ? so how can someone who claims to belong to a religion of peace do it ? Something is definitely wrong between my version of Islam and your Islam  and since there are no two Islam , there is definitely one wrong , I am not a scholar or interpreter but I am just taking basic of my Religion that teaches me to say Peace to everyone I see or meet ! which is logical enough to understand for a layman that my God asked me to live in peace and let live others in peace. I don’t think it is that difficult for you  to understand or probably you don’t want to understand perhaps you have nothing to do with religion ,so stop taking the name of my religion for your evil actions! ”

I don’t know even if all  muslims of the world  would collectively refute the false claims about Islam from  these terrorists  , would it be suffice  for rest of the world to believe us? ?

Signing off for today with a heavy heart ,and prayers for all humanity.
