Syawal 1st

My congratulations and best wishes to all Muslims celebrating the Eid ul Fitr tomorrow after a month of blessed Ramadhan.

However, I admit that I find it very difficult to throw myself into a celebratory mode this time around, what with the loss of MH370 and MH17, the inhuman repression, bombardment and murder of Palestinians in the occupied territories, the killings and destruction in Iraq and Syria, the continuous unrest in North African countries, the armed conflict in Eastern Ukraine ... there simply are too many to list them all.

My one wish and prayers are for the killings and maiming to end and for the Mercy of Allah be upon the innocent victims of human avarice.
