Saudi Arabia’s ban on Qatar

While I was planning to be away from blogging  for most of the time this month, where can one go to rant/voice concern when you have world issues coming up like these !  Never in my dreams have I thought that Saudi Arabia, the head of Muslim States  will impose such a ban of another muslim country during the month of Ramadan and instantly  my aging memory reminds me how can you forget Yemen!  For those of you who don’t know (which I doubt) Saudi Arabia has recently put a ban on Qatar along with UAE, Bahrain and Egypt . The diplomats have been asked to leave and nationals of Qatar are giving two weeks to leave for their country and now there is ban on Qatar Airways to fly to and from these 4 countries. The ground for imposing the ban has been the charges to  support terrorism in their countries and backing the agenda of their arch rival  Iran which Qatar has clearly denied.

I am not here to justify Qatar since I don’t know the realities but  I am definitely here to condemn the ban on a muslim country by other muslim countries supposedly their brothers in Islam in holy month of Ramadan where millions of muslims are fasting and want to spend their fasts in peace . I am sure these things don’t happen in a day and Saudi Arabia must have been preparing for it from long to get the evidence and consent from rest of the states but then why choose Ramadan?  Where are the warnings issued and peaceful  discussions  held before placing a  direct blockade ! Where the proofs of violations of warnings ? Did you give enough time to make it easier for Qatar nationals to exit ?

Does the respect for Ramadan and teaching of our holy Prophet holds nothing when it comes to Politics , that too when you claim running the government by Sharia Laws, Is it really a part of Sharia to coerce tie with a Muslim state in Ramadan ! Everything in the end sums up to greed of power by these rich countries  and insecurity of their states being taken over by rivals. Saudi Arabia has been waging a war in Yemen from past few years where millions of civilians have been casualties, some have fled the country while others still starve and continue to suffer like in Syria.

Saudi Arabia has recently signed  an arm deal of 110 bn dollars with US and after a week or two of signing it We have this Qatar ban , Does that ring a bell? Iran continues to be their number 1 enemy state and a potential danger seen by West as well. Anyone keeping a relation with Iran will meet up a fate like Qatar ? Is that the message on board? Is it a bait for Iran to intervene and then start a war with it?  Qatar has supported the Palestine for long and since now Saudi Arabia is indirectly an Israel Ally by signing the weapon deal with US, it wants it to stop its Palestinian support. So many questions in my mind for now, thanks for being patient with me  to read it to the end , One thing is sure the  humans keep suffering in names of fabricated wars to sell weapons and arms,  be it terrorists or  soldiers, they both need weapons and in the end it is civilians who pay the price of war.

 

Just another Rant Post

Sometimes it is hard to understand that people are having a bad day or  they are in their normal ill humoured  mood or is it intentional for you! I have a problem with rude people especially if they are at service desk . I understand everything is very general for them because it is their everyday job and the person asking them questions seems stupid enough but  being rude and giving  him/her  angry looks  makes them  look even more incompetent for the job they are being hired for .

Today I went to local kiosk where you can buy your everyday stuff including magazines, newspapers and they also send your letters and posts. I asked the lady at the counter, I want to send a letter by registered post . Before I had uttered the words “by registered post” she had already put a local stamp on it and then she was angry  ” You have to tell me first! ” and I was half shocked,  blurted out  “ yes,  I told you ” . She then shook her head saying no , rolled her eyes up as if I am lying and said “Sending a letter means local post  and you should say Register ! You already had me waiting while I have other customers ” .

The blood gushed to my face, I could feel nervousness in my hands while taking out coins, I quickly paid her and left . I could hear my heartbeats in my ears,  it didnt came back normal until 15 mins, nervousness in my hands for another 20 minutes and my mood for 30 mins ! That is what happens if you are hypersensitive, small little everyday things could trigger those anxieties and nervousness.  I suffered for an hour almost without any fault . With this hypersensitivity one is so prone to get hurt even with people who are complete strangers . You shatter a little everyday and then you gather yourself and stand up again. It is a everyday routine to watch yourself and protect from getting hurt but then it happens every now and then.

It is impossible to avoid such people in life, you meet them at every corner. The best thing you can do is divert your mind to something else immediately for example start checking phone , call some one, listen a song or say something to calm yourself down , a prayer.
