Some website developments

Sunday, April 27th, 2014

1. I have made the English Translation of the Holy Quran (2010 Revised Edition) available in two more formats on www.ahmadiyya.org as below:

  1. HTML format. This is a single webpage consisting of only the translation with chapter introductions, but without footnotes.
  2. E-book formats: mobi (for Kindle) and epub. This corresponds to the entire printed book, except that from the introduction only the first two sections (the life of the Holy Prophet and about the Quran itself) have been included. In these versions the page entitled 'Features of the e-book edition' explains how the book is organized. My experimentation shows that the precise appearance of the e-book varies according to the device and the reader software you use. I have tested it on a Samsung Galaxy 10.1 inch Tablet and a Samsung Galaxy 4 inch screen smartphone, using the Kindle app for mobi and Universal Book Reader for epub.

2. You may recall that at the event we held in May 2013 to commemorate the centenary of the Woking Muslim Mission, five newsreel film clips of functions at the Woking Mosque, made by the British Pathe newsreel company of old, were played. We had to pay a licence fee of several hundred Pounds for just that one public performance of the clips. On our website www.wokingmuslim.org we could only refer our readers to the British Pathe website if they wanted to watch any clip, and that too was in the low resolution used on their website. To place those clips on our website, we would have been charged a licence fee of several thousands of Pounds per year.

A few days ago British Pathe made their entire collection of newsreels available on YouTube in high resolution. So on the www.wokingmuslim.org website I have now added links to the clips on YouTube, after identifying the ones of interest to us. Please go to the Home Page and look at the top banner. From there you can play the two clips of most interest that are highlighted, and also go to the page from where all the clips can be accessed.

Qadiani Jamaat forsakes its beliefs and adopts Lahori beliefs

Sunday, April 20th, 2014

Submitted by Rashid Jahangiri


 

In newspaper advertisements last week the Qadiani Jamaat placed full page advertisements giving their beliefs. In those advertisements they clearly said the Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad was a Reformer.

They did not mention their real beliefs that they believe him to be a Prophet and every person who recites the kalima but refuses to take an oath of allegiance on the hand of their khalifa is out of the fold of Islam.

In this video we will explain the real belief of the Qadiani Jamaat and provide evidence of what they are trying to hide from the mainstream.

Is religious extremism a mental illness?

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014

A friend of this blog has referred us to this news in the Digital Journal.

"Kathleen Taylor, a neurologist at Oxford University, said that recent developments suggest that we will soon be able to treat religious fundamentalism and other forms of ideological beliefs potentially harmful to society as a form of mental illness."
