It gets hotter and hotter

May 12, 2006

It gets hotter and hotter, and drier and drier, every day. The whole of the Northern South Asian sub-continent, (and possibly the Southern part as well), is in the grip of drought. People have begun to die of thirst and heatstroke. In India, by last week 53 people had died of heatstroke. Mild drought has been declared in six districts of Baluchistan. Thar is always the first to be without water, so the conditions there must be worse. It is very severe, and looks like worsening. It takes a lot of misery for governments to admit there is a problem.

Rains, if they come, are not expected until the middle of July (16th).

In fact I think the whole of the Asian African landmass is suffering from droughts of various degrees, and more is likely.

We need your duas for immediate rains.

Don’t Block the Blog

March 9, 2006

I am able to post, but I was unable to view my blog. It now turns out that some ISPs have blocked the entire blogspot.com site. well, now I have found ways to view.

I support blocking those specific blogs which carry the cartoons depicting the last prophet (saw), but not the entire blogspot site which carries millions of blogs.

LAUNCHED BY THE ALVI-E TEAM (Awab Alvi & Omer Alvie) on March 3rd 2006, this is an online campaign to support free speech of Pakistani bloggers and internet free speech in general. Support our cause by copying the banner code (below) to your web site.

Since 28th February (2006), Pakistani Bloggers’ Freedom of Speech has been under attack by some, if not all, Internet Service Providers (ISPs) who has chosen to block all blogs hosted on the blogspot.com domain. Political pressure groups have protested to the government to block those web sites displaying the controversial cartoon images of Prophet Muhammed (PBUH) that were hosted on the net. But instead of blocking specific sites, ISPs have simply blacklisted the entire domain, causing thousands of blogs to be inaccessible for viewing in Pakistan.

It is our point of view, that any censorship of blogs is unacceptable, be it a few offensive sites inciting a hateful stereotype, or hundreds of blogs protesting controversial caricatures or even the thousands of sites that remain indifferent to the issue.

News Reports Appearing Globally Fighting for the Cause
Washington Post – Jefferson Morley
The News – (Ethan Casey – www.ethancasey.com)
Reporters Without Borders
Global Voices Online
International Freedom of Expression eXchange

We as Pakistani Bloggers object to this action and would like to request you to join in our cause and display either one of the banners condemning this action and appealing for an immediate change.
