Vishwaroopam And Freedom of Expression

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan I The Times of India I 1st Feb. 2013 I Page 24

There is always a hue and cry against those activities that Muslims feel are derogatory to Islam. A recent example is the South Indian film Vishwaroopam. Such behaviour in the name of Islam is nothing but de-Islamisation of Islam as it is quite alien to Islamic scriptures.

We Have The Ability To Bounce Back

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan I The Times of India I 29th Jan. 2013 I Page 18

Resilience is a law of nature. It means the ability to recover quickly from illness, change, or misfortune. It can be found everywhere -- in the physical world, the plant and animal worlds and the human world.

Resilience in Physics means the ability to return to the original form after being bent, compressed or stretched. The same is true of the plant world and the animal world. Every creature inherently possesses the power of resilience.

In this case, there was absolutely no respect for another’s dignity or life.

Life Is A Tightrope Walk

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan I The Times of India I 7th November 2012 I Page 24

Living life is like tightrope walking. Tightrope walking means maintaining your balance between two opposite positions, proceeding very cautiously so that you avoid either of two equally bad situations.

Break In History

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan I Times of India I 4th November 2012 I Page 1

It’s tough when the person you idolised as role model suddenly falls from grace. While MAULANA WAHIDUDDIN KHAN stresses on maintaining ‘sanctity of history’, YOGI ASHWINI says there is no case for leniency when rich leaders like Rajat Gupta turn corrupt.
