Muslims Love Killing Muslims -Islamic Lips are Sealed

eshawar, Sep. 8 (ANI): At least four children were killed and three others injured in a militant attack in Orakzai Agency on Tuesday morning.

Sources said militants opened indiscriminate fire at school going kids in Kalaya, capital of Orakzai, killing four children on the spot while injuring many others.

Eye witnesses said extremists sprayed bullets with automatic weapons.

Two tribesmen belonging to Taliban faction of Aslam Farouqui and one from the rival side were also injured in the crossfire, The Dawn reports.

even during ramzan
blood shed killing fields
muslims love killing muslims
blood on the soul of humanity
putrid and congealed
Islamic lips are sealed
eunuch silence
nothing left to yield
talibanization of human values
the new minefield
teardrops on the soul
of scriptures revealed
a terror beneath a savage
system of hate concealed
the Shia dies is born again
protecting him is Ali's
sword and Hussains shield
memory of a 1400 year old pain
a protest against jehaddi terrorism
in a world of sectarian strife
much remains unhealed
layer after layer like an onion
a new pain unpeeled

Azaan Aur Adnan ..Teer Aur Kaman

Adnan Sami and Azaan Sami

ek dil
ek dhadkan
do jan
azaan aur adnan
do dost
baap bete
teer aur kaman

Adnan Sami Khan (Urdu: عدنان سمیع خان; born 15 August 1973), popularly known simply as Adnan Sami, is a British born singer, musician pianist[1][2], actor and composer[3][4] of Pakistani origin from Canada[5][6]. His style merges Asian and Western styles and instrumentation and ranges from classical to jazz to modern pop-rock.

Early life and education

Sami was born, reared and educated in London, United Kingdom[7][8]. His father, Arshad Sami Khan was a decorated fighter pilot and war hero of the Pakistan Air Force, and a proud alumnus of PAF College Sargodha. [9], a Pathan[7] who was born in Pakistan[citation needed] and lived in India[citation needed], was a Pakistani diplomat[10] and had training in composing classical and jazz music.[11] His mother belonged to an Indian Muslim family. Sami attended Rugby School[12][13]. He went on to graduate from King's College[citation needed] and became the first person to play Indian/Pakistani classical music on the electric piano. He had played the piano since the age of five[11][14]. Sami began taking lessons from Pandit Shivkumar Sharma when visiting India during his school vacations.[7] Indian singing legend Asha Bhosle spotted talent in a ten-year-old Sami at an R D Burman concert in London, and encouraged him to take up music as a career.[15][16]

As a teenager, Sami, when performing on the keyboard at a programme in Stockholm, was noticed by Keyboard Magazine as being the fastest man on keyboard in Asia.[7]

Sami then went on to learn Indian classical music from Mahraj Khatak[citation needed], a Pakistani classical singing teacher and dancer.

At the age of sixteen, Sami was approached to write a song for famine-hit Ethiopia for which he won a special award from UNICEF.[2]

[edit] Career

Adnan had begun playing the piano at the age of five and was an accomplished concert pianist having performed in several countries such as Sweden and UAE.[17]

He had his first solo album RAAG Time in 1991-92.The song from his lastest album Kisi Din 'Teri Yaad' was the title track'Jab Chandani Barh Kar' of his first album. In 1994, he composed music for a film for the first time. The Pakistani film, in which Adnan was the lead with his wife Zeba and famous Indian playback singer Asha Bhosle did the playback, Sargam, was a blockbuster.[18] However, the authorities banned Asha's voice from the soundtrack which disappointed Adnan. He then had to re-record these songs with Hadiqa Kiyani.[18] After unsuccessfully trying to make it to the competitive Pakistani pop scene in 1997, in 2000, Asha Bhosle teamed up with him to release a collection of love songs named Kabhi to Nazar Milao[19]. The music was also composed by Adnan. According to Adnan, this was a "dream come true" for him.[7] The album became an instant rage[20] and topped the Indipop charts[5] for most of 2001[21][22]. According to BusinessWeek, the album sold 2 million copies in India.[23]

Songs Kabhi to Nazar milao whose music video featured model Aditi Gowitrikar[24] and Lift karaa de whose music video starred the popular Bollywood star Govinda from the album became immensely popular at this time. The videos were shot by Anil Mehra who had shot popular Hindi movies Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam and Lagaan.[16] Looking at the immense success of this album, Magnasound and Adnan released an album Always yours which is a remix version of numbers from this album[25].

He soon became a "sensation" which led Hindi filmmaker Boney Kapoor to invite him to give music for his film.[20] This was the beginning for him composing and singing songs for Hindi films very successfully of even the top Hindi film producers of the time like Yash Chopra and Subhash Ghai. Due to the immense popularity of his music videos and live performances, he had even begun getting acting offers at this time.[16][26]

The song, Tu sirf mera mehboob, from the Hindi movie Ajnabee (2001) sung by Adnan also "became a rage"[27] and was a superhit[22].

Screen called him the pop personality of the year 2001[22] and even says that the success of his album Kabhi to Nazar milao "kept the Indian pop music industry alive and breathing" in 2001.

In 2002, Pepsi Foods made Adnan its brand ambassador in India, a contract which involved hosting a series of live music concerts across cities as well as Adnan featuring in ads for Pepsi products.[28] According to the Pakistani newspaper Dawn, no Pakistani artist had managed to gain as much popularity in India as Sami had.[29] According to an article in the Indian newspaper The Times of India, Sami was the most successful face in non-film music in India at that time.[16]

His second studio album, Tera Chehra, was released in October 2002[17] to critical eulogies even as his first album was still selling.[16] The music videos for this album were shot by Binod Pradhan who had shot the popular Hindi movie Devdas, directed by Bela Sehgal[30] (director of Devdas Sanjay Leela Bhansali's sister) and featured popular Bollywood stars Rani Mukerji in the title track, Amitabh Bachchan in the track Kabhi nahi who also sang the duet with Adnan[16][17] and actress Mahima Chaudhry in another song[30]. The title track was written by famous Hindi movie lyricist Sameer.[17] According to Screen, it was the only successful pop album of the year.[31]

Saathiya (2002) brought the opportunity to work with maestro A. R. Rahman in the form of Aye Udi Udi which he was looking forward to. According to Screen, the song was the highlight of the album.[32] called him the "reigning king of Indipop" in early 2003 based on the sales of his albums in the past two years.[30]

His most successful albums have been Kabhi To Nazar Milao (with Asha Bhosle) and Tera Chehra,[33] and his music videos usually have had a host of Bollywood stars in them, including Namrata Shirodkar ("Bheegi Bheegi Raat"), Mahima Chaudhry, Raveena Tandon, Rani Mukerji ("Tera Chehra"), Govinda, Fardeen Khan, Amisha Patel ("O Meri Jaan"), Bhumika Chawla ("Maahiya"), Dia Mirza ("Pal Do Pal") and most famously, Amitabh Bachchan ("Kabhi Nahi").[33][34] and in 2007 the soundtrack from the hit Salaam-e-Ishq: A Tribute to Love.

Since 2003, he has sung for a few Tamil movies like Boys, Aayutha Ezhuthu composed by A.R. Rehman. The songs,"Boom Boom" from Boys[35] and "Nenjamellam Kadhal" for Aayitha Ezhuthu, were hits. He also sang for the Tamil and Telugu versions besides the Hindi version of songs fromthe movie Yuva (2004) whose music was also composed by A. R. Rahman. Besides Rahman, he also worked together with composer Yuvan Shankar Raja, singing hit Tamil songs "Oh Intha Kadhal" from Satham Podathey and the very recently released "Oru Kal" from Siva Manasula Sakthi, which got very popular and widely noticed.

He has also sang for a Kannada film song. His first Kannada song, "Don't Worry Madabeda" for the film Super Star starring Upendra was a big hit.

In 2006, he took a sabbatical, and reportedly lost over 70 kg,[36] to make a comeback in April 2007 with a new album Kisi Din.

His latest film music composition was for Shaurya (2008).[37]

Adnan Sami’s son Azaan Sami launched by Percept

Wednesday, September 9th, 2009 5:43 pm

MUMBAI: Many would be curious to know what Azaan Sami's music is like. On 8 September at Mumbai's Hard Rock Cafe, the media got a peek into the 15 year old's music which will be a part of his forthcoming album. The track, a dedication to his grandfather, is a sad number composed, written and sung by Azaan.

According to Sony Music India managing director Shridhar Subramaniam, it's Very rare in the business to find talent that sings, composes, writes, performs their own music.

At the launch, Azaan also performed a small piece of a Beethoven Symphony. After his performance, Adnan Sami, a virtuoso piano player himself, was asked to give his critical feedback, "He has got the chops," he said. Adnan Sami says he discovered Azaan's talent when he came to him one day with a CD which had his own compositions, "I was blown away after hearing that," said the proud father.

Interacting with the media, Azaan Sami said his father has always been supportive, "It happens so many times that I go to him three am in the morning, and say, 'I have composed something, what do you think?' sometimes he turns around and says, 'Don't let anybody hear this..' but then there also have been times where he has got up from his sleep and run to the piano saying, 'I have to work with you on this." Azaan also added that he is not influenced by his father, "I was not there with him for 10 years," he said.

Like any other father, Adnan appeared critical about his young son - be it about music or things other than that, "You better know how to place the 'mic'," he shot at Azaan, while he moved his hands a little too often while speaking to the media.

"I want him to find his own direction," added Adnan, "If he ends up doing something similar to what I am doing, then he will not be able to create his own niche and move forward. I want him to create his own identity rather than just being my son who happens to have entered the industry just becasue I am a part of it."

Azaan Sami will be working on his first Bollywood assingment and composing a track for filmmaker Priyadarshan's forthcoming film Bum Bum Bhole which is slated to release this December.

Hijra Mujrewali

noton ki bhauchar
logon ne di tali
ki bacchu bhai wadi
ki famous
hijre mujrewali
nak ki nath
woh aj rat
todega kan ki bali
thodisi bewafai
thodisi nok jhok aur gali
hai woh harami nikama
kamina madar chod
mere bagh ka mali
dhanda uska ulta pulta
phekta hai not jali
ghungroo ki jhankar
papi pet ka sawal
jeb hai uski khali
900 chue khakar
woh sunne aya qawwali

Hijras Roza and Ramzan

People have a very wrong notion about Hijras ..Hijras are as human as you and me.
I know hijras at Peela Housae, the Muslim Hijras who do not solicit for sex but fast do ibadat and read the Holy Scriptures, Namaz and thereby unite with the Almighty the most mubarak month of the Muslim calendar Ramzan or Ramadhan.

As the Muslim hijra at Peela house Mumbai Redlight Area Cages and the Hindu hijra have a common Hindu Guru Lachmi.. this is a different one from Laxmi Narayan Tripathi ..
they have adjoining room separated from each other, Lord Ganesha is worshiped here and a few yeas back I had gifted their deity an American diamond crystal ..

The Muslim Hijras Ibatakhana is stark room , a janamaz, the Holy Sciptures and totally sacrosanct , out of respect to their privacy and their spirituality I did not shoot this room or the room of Lord Ganesha.

My patron at Peela House was Heena Hijra , we have not met since a very long time..but there was an incident I did not mention , it was during my walk with Lalbagh Cha Raja..on Visarjan day, I met a young Muslim boy, who accosted me at Chincpokli ..he befriended me and told me that he was a reader of my Hijra Blogs at Word Press , than he told me that he was besotted by Heena Hijra and tried to visit her at the Red Light area , where she has her rooms..but was denied access..this guy was barely 24 or 25..

I was not shocked by his revelation as Hijras like Heena can impose their personality on your will very strongly..however I was busy shooting so the young lad told me would meet me at Girgaum Chowpatty the final destination of the Raja of Lalbagh..I never met him because I aborted my walk from Kumbharwada and came back to Bandra.

So this is another aspect of blogging cutting across various fronts of the secluded mind..

Hijras like the one in the picture Reshma of Lal Mitti , there are two of them both from Lal Mitti Bandra Reclamation...they are dancers at weddings badhais and other joyful Muslim occasions.

Reshma keeps all her fast and we meet from time to time.

Her only grouse is that the Bandra Bazar Road hunks harass and torment her so avoids this road like plague.

Back to Heena , Heena does a lot of charity during Ramzan , feeding the poor , paying the school fees of needy school children, and the welfare of the female prostitutes of Peela House.

Heena is into designer wear and wears only branded stuff , and is a fabulous host to the hijras from Delhi and elsewhere.

Heena's best friend is Salma Hijra both are devout Muslims..

I hope once my work problems vanish to go and wish them Idd hopefully..

One thing I must mention most of the Hijras are converts to Islam follow Sufism, I have met Wahabbi Hijras too and this is no cheek n jowl, this Hijra has done Hajj and we met at the 40 day Chalisva of late Naik Ragini..

He wore men's clothes but was a hijra all the same.

The Shia Hijras are a minority the most famous being Hijra Bulundshaher who passed away recently.her love for Ahle Bayt and Hazrat Imam Hussain was formidable to say the least .The Hijras of the Shia sect are also devout followers of the First Imam and are known as Aliwale.

I have met Hijras who hate the Shias with a ferocity not seen in normal life too..this Hijra is related to a blue blooded feudal family in northern India.

Overall Hijras follow a simple code of religious ethics known as Sarv Dharm Ek.. All religion are One.
They are at home with all religiosity, be it Bhauchara Ma, Lord Iravan or Nanga Pir of Uran and the greatest Saint of All Khwajah Gharib Nawaz the ultimate Protector of the Hijras ..

My Hijra Guru Laxmi Narayan Tripathi is the greatest authority on Muslim hijras and well versed in Hinduism as well as Sufism.

Lastly Hijras who renounce materialism , glamor and glitz and become shamans or healers and are known as Hijra Bawas.. mostly found at Char Yar in Ajmer sharing space with Malangs and Rafaees..
