Muslim participants enlighten the rights of the Christians in the light of the Holy Quran and the sayings of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him). Mufhtti Ghulam Aulla Kashmiri one of the Muslim participants shared the words of Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) who say, “Take care of your neighbors although they are not from you and belong to other nations or casts.” Abdul Razaq Khan another Muslim participant said, “Holy Quran has given equal rights to the other nations with Muslims.”

The Christian participants also shared their thoughts in the light of Holy Bible. Sabir Iqbal one of the Christian participants said, “We being Christians believe on harmony and peace through love and brotherhood.”  Munawer Sajjad the other Christian participant said, “We the followers of Holy Bible do respect our Muslim brothers as commanded in the scripture.”



This get together actually provided the platform to both the Muslims and Christians where they made promises to establish brotherhood and showed the spirit to work together for the development. The Muslims said that it’s their duty to fulfill the rights of our Christian brothers and Christians said that they want to grow in love, peace and harmony with their Muslim brothers.  It was also suggested to gather the youth for more progress to develop peace and harmony.

Dear Anser,
it is so heartening to hear from you on a subject on which i have spoken too much and written quite a bit. This is a great human service you are doing and well should be doing. This is not just a hypocritical act or a pleasing-game, but a genuine need of all times. I cite Rumi here who says, ” you have been commanded to unite  and not divide“. We need to interepret our relgious heritage in a way that brings us together that binds us as one humanity.
We have shed enough blood in the name of one god or another or in a name of one religious belief or another. All this historical bitter memory needs to brought to an end and start a new way of life that is based on global ethics and human values, and human welfare. We need to stop acting like God, making decisions who or what faith will get salvation and who will go to Paradise and Hell. These are Godly matters and let Him decide. Let us not make decisions on His behalf; He is quite capable of making these decisions.
Today, millions of Muslims are living in predominantly Christian lands, and similar numbers of  Christians live in predominantly Christian lands. Mostly, they live with peace and in harmony. This is the ideal of human life.
Last, but not the least, Muslims should never forget that the first Muslims during the Prophet’s time who fled to Habsha due to persecution were given refuge by the Christian King there. WE need to bring these shining example of history to unite together and live peacefully, respectfully in a globalized and interdependent world.
I say these words not to please you but as my philosophy of life as a Muslim. So, Anser, I really admire for your leadership qualities to do these positive, constructive and poweroful things among the people you live.
With warm regards, Dr Khaki

Starfish Martial Arts

Health and physical education is a very important part of the Ontario curriculum. Regular physical activity is not only essential for healthy growth and development — it can actually boost students’ academic achievement. Younger students can burn off some of their energy, increasing their ability to settle in and focus on their academic work. In adolescents, regular physical activity not only helps to maintain a healthy body weight, but has also been shown to lower levels of anxiety and depression.

Starfish Karachi has taken an initiative to start Starfish Martial Arts for the school students. Nisar Alam is my own teacher who had trained me in 1992-96.



55 students in first badge enrolled themselves. We hope more boys and girls comes in.
