The bloody events of the #ChamanSitin were at least 4 months in the making. They were not sudden. They were not unpredictable. This thread explains. Forgive its length. I think it's important to remember. 1/n
What happened: On Thurs, the indiscriminate assault by sec forces on protesters at the Chaman border resulted in the deaths of 4. Another 28 wounded. On the Afghan side, officials say 15 civilians are dead. 2/n
First, about the dead and the wounded. There are few details about the people who were killed and wounded. We do know that the dead include: 1) the mother of these children. 3/n

Since #EidAlAdha celebrates the commitment of a prophet listening to voices in his head telling him to kill his son (until God told him it was just a prank), we decided to post similar contemporary stories.

No activists, journalists or political prisoners were among the 3,157 people granted an #Eid pardon by #Egyptian president Abdel Fattah el-Sisi but an ex-policeman who butchered a woman in her home was. google.com/amp/s/www.alja…
Ex-policeman Mohsen al-Sukkari was sentenced in 2010 to 25 years for the murder of popular #Lebanese singer Suzanne Tamim.

A court had found that al-Sukkari acted on instructions from #Egyptian real estate tycoon Hisham Talaat Moustafa - who was close to the regime - for $2m.
The 2008 killing of Tamim, Moustafa's lover, sparked public outcry across the Arab region.

Moustafa, a well-known businessman, was sentenced to 15yrs for his part in the crime, but Sisi granted him a pardon in 2017 on health grounds.

So now Sisi has pardoned both men. #Egypt

Happy #Eid!
Because I travel so often, I have done so many of my #Eid celebrations virtually or by phone for many years.

I was with my parents and sister and her husband for the last Eid though and I know how hard this Eid will be under lockdown/shelter in place/social distancing.
Remember that we are staying at home to help those who are most vulnerable in our communities.

It will be a difficult and different #Eid.

But I hope that wherever you are, you can find love and community whether by Zoom or by phone or other means of communication. ❤️✊🏽💜

A system of legal pluralism means multiple properly reasoned opinions with different outcomes can each be equally valid. Islamic law is amazing that way. Unity is not uniformity.

#Eid Mubarak to those celebrating Saturday & on Sunday! God bless an ummah that cherishes pluralism.
Myth: Celebrating Eid on different days is a sign of disunity.

Reality: Pluralism is very Muslim! Human beings cannot have perfect reasoning for Divine law so we accept different rulings on matters of Islamic law as long as each of those rulings have sound methods of reasoning.
Like many, I grew up in a country where legal pluralism does not exist. You cannot go forum shopping in the U.S. There is one case, one ruling, and only a higher court can reverse a ruling.

The OG systems of Islamic law were not designed that way. *Sound* opinions could differ.

Death toll: 224
Recoveries: 1065 new, 9,577 total

IMPORTANT points for #Eid in UAE:
- avoid family gatherings and coming together, use Zoom
- do not give 'Eid' money to children

- Eid prayers to be done at home
- do not leave home unless buying essentials

(thread) In #Kashmir I used to think that when I will finally have internet, surfing is all I will do. Since I came to Delhi internet especially social media, has overwhelmed me. It almost feels like a privilege & there have been moments when I felt guilty to use it. As a result
I haven't used a lot of it. Mostly because the newly adapted habits. We don't look into the phones as frequently. Also initially it looks just weird. The information on it, the people talking freely, videos etc all of it overwhelms you. I am sure those who spent time in #Kashmir
feel the same way.Nevertheless communications blackout is one part of the story. The larger problem that ails Kashmir is this sense of uncertainty. People are extremely anxious about what is impeding. Communications blackout has only magnified this anxiety. Government has assured

Happy 2nd day of #Eid from my parents and me!
My parents took me out for a belated celebration of my birthday and I learned more stories of my mum’s pregnancy with me in Port Said during the 1967 war. They were junior doctors at the time and several times a day at the hospital they’d have to take shelter in the basement.
My parents are from #Cairo but they spent the end of their junior year as physicians in Port Said. My mum tells me she felt me kick inside her every time a bomb fell. That’s where my phobia of thunder comes from.

#Tathya
#Tathya with Apoorvanand
In the context of the Sajjan Kumar conviction in the 1984 genocidal violence against Sikhs, we need to rethink about other incidents of violence that have happened in the country, says Prof. Apoorvanand.
We wish you a #MerryChristmas with the Christian Qawwals of Delhi.
"People look at me and wonder who I really am. I have only one answer for them. I am you," says Bernard Rufus, also known as Sahil Sufi Nizam, a popular singer of Christian Qawwalis.

Yemen: Our colleagues still on the ground in #Hodeida share what they're seeing in a city bracing for the worst. #thread
Civilians in the city are under immense pressure.

You can feel the tension in the streets. Instead of focusing on celebrating #Eid with their families, people are stocking up on food and fuel to survive.

They fear a siege.
#Hodeida was a vibrant city. It was the main entry point for commercial goods and home to some 35,000 fishermen.

Today the streets are nearly empty.
