1. Playing hide-n-seek

  2. Waiting is the hardest part. On my birthday, I announced I’m building another school with the Catholic Church. It is funded from my winnings from The Project for Awesome. The money has been sent but, given Church paperwork, it hasn’t arrived in Bangladesh yet. So I wait. Also, this floor has been my bed as of late. It’s the only room with air conditioning in the seminary. At night, I sneak in here, turn on the AC and sleep on the floor. Seminarians usually wake me up or walk around me in the morning.

  3. I’m a fan of Islam, doesn’t mean I’m a fan of Muslims though.

  11. verypuresoul, asked a question:

    Salam Aleykoum, peace be upon you as well :)

    The post you are probably referring to is this one which was inspired by my reaction to how many Muslims in Bangladesh were talking about murdering, beheading, and exterminating gays in the country.

    Your opinion is very common amongst Muslims. In this POV, Islam is seen as great (or perfect) and the only problem is the behavior of its followers. And the bad followers are always a minority you should ignore/dismiss.

    Respectfully, I don’t buy that.

    I have no doubt that if Islam is judged as merely a religious text - it will seem great. But you can say the same about Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, or any religion for that matter.

    But a religion is more than a piece of paper.

    Religion is a living thing. It is represented and presented to the world by the actions, beliefs, and attitudes of its followers. This is especially true if you are an outsider or non-believer of the religion.

    And, in this regard, you can’t dismiss the actions and words of Muslims calling for violence, showing bigotry, and spewing hatred. They aren’t a minority. They are a community with self-sustaining critical mass.

    And that’s the problem.

    And that’s why we need to put a spotlight on these people.

    And that’s why we should spend less time critiquing people who point that out and more time challenging the Muslims who give Islam a bad rep.

  12. This Catholic Congregation has been in Bangladesh since 1853. But this maybe the first time they’ve given a set of gate keys to their headquarters (at the gate reserved for priests no less) to a Muslim.
