General Board / I WONDER....
« on: April 01, 2016, 02:32:52 PM »
I am just wondering. I am wondering if in the  lapse between the time when Konline went comatose and its revival, any of its members might have passed away? Does anyone know of anyone who was a member but Allah Ya Yi masa/mata cikawa?   :'( :'( :'(

Guestbook & Feedback / ITS GOOD TO BE BACK.
« on: March 30, 2016, 10:41:14 PM »
Oh the years are rolling backwards. I am remembering the good old days when K online used to be such a vital part of my day when I was studying for a phd. The nostalgia!  I am so glad to be back and take up my other name husnaa. My facebook name is naa roo. The naa came from husnaa and the roo came from my surname farouk. i took the rou and made it roo.  My professional name or official office name is Asma T. Ibrahim though and my maiden name is Asma Ibrahim BB Farouk. Lol I feel like a chameleon with so many names.

From News Sources / Terrorism in Nigeria.
« on: February 08, 2012, 06:44:55 PM »
The spate of bombings and gun attacks in the Northern parts of Nigeria is becoming too much and the perpetrators are getting more and more buoyed up by the successful executions of these atrocities. On Monday, a group of armed youths attacked the police station in Sharada. Almost simultaneously, gunfire exchanges were reported at Mariri.  The next day on Tuesday, bomb blasts occurred in Kaduna. A shadowy terrorrist group the so called  Boko Haram is said to be behind these killings. Well some THING or BODY is definitely behind the killings. Boko Haram is like alqaeda, a group which like smoke you cannot grab or clutch at, because it is just a name and anyone, just about anyone can be behind the attacks and a multiplicity of atrocities can be carried out by several disparate terrorrist cells and still all go by the name of Boko Haram. Let us not forget that America "predicted the collapse of Nigeria as an entity by 2015. The fulfilment of this prophesy is probably being engineered by it. Who knows if America is the one giving us the Boko Haram treatment just like it dished out 9/11 and its consequences to Iraq and Afghanistan? Is it too ludicrous to imagine?

To kodai idanuwana ne suke yin mun siddabaru, amma admin wrote under the words GENERAL BOARD that u can talk about anything here. To sai kuma gashi an wayi gari, yana ta kulle topics yana canza musu wurin zama. To kodai za ka cire wannan dan directive din, since it is not strictly true that u can talk about anything here. Better still add a t  and change any to every to make it u cant talk about everything here.

can we get a facility for convenient uploading as well?

Lallai admin you get time on yr hands ;D ;D. Wannan convective current of activity, moving this topic and that topic hither and thither, I am almost tempted to think that a malignantly single minded virus is circulating on general board with such recurring monotony that the topics are forced to run helter skelter for cover.
Now I ask you, what precisely constitutes a topic which is non contextual enough to be considered suitable to remain on GENERAL BOARD? If no answer is forthcoming, I think you should do away with general board because you are defeating its function which says its GENERAL (POST ANYTHING!) by displacing many of the topics posted there. I tell you also that many ppl dont bother to look beyond the general board and chit chat. Very occasionally do we browse the other what ever u call them (except the islamic section of course and even there, you can see hardly anyone makes a comment after reading a posting). So you are effectively killing the beehive of activity which is the GENERAL BOARD.
Please reconsider.
Have a good day

Science and Technology / Largest proton accelerator in the alps
« on: September 11, 2008, 06:28:35 PM »
After thirty yrs of preparation, scientists are about to put the big bang theory to the test. They are going to make protons travelling more than the speed of light collide to in order to release dark (or anti )matter and see how black holes are created and a host of other things. In the process energy at a higher temperature than the sun will be generated.
To Allah Ya Kyauta. Lets hope there is an anti climax.

chit-chat / Know yr famous muslim converts!!
« on: September 03, 2008, 06:30:03 PM »
These are some videos of famous muslim converts. It is really heartening to see that  ppl in the public eye are converting to Islam. It sends a powerful message of the authenticity of Islam, since some norms and mores of America and the western world are hugely influenced by famous ppl.

General Board / Nigeria and the Olympic Games
« on: September 02, 2008, 10:30:45 AM »
Over two billion naira has been expended on Nigeria's participation in the just concluded Olympic games. The payoff from the massive injection of funds were three medals (that is collectively considering the individual soccer silver medals as a single medal). The EFCC is beginning to smell some hydrogen sulphide odour emanating from that direction and wants to have a better look.
You go girl!  Farida Waziri, catch those rats!

Islam / Muslim Deviance?
« on: August 21, 2008, 06:25:58 PM »
Muslim deviance?

Once again the CIA and MI6 are publishing dire warnings of the vitality of Al Qaeda. Once again the Islamic world as a whole is being tarnished by association. U.S. presidential contender John McCain is saying that America needs a leadership “to confront the transcendent challenge of our time: the threat of radical Islamic terrorism”. And the words still ring in our ears from Samuel Huntington's treatise, “the Clash of Civilizations”, the book that in many ways triggered this paranoia that infects the politicians, the press and the public discourse. “The underlying problem for the West is not Islamic fundamentalism, IT IS ISLAM”, he wrote.

Few, if any, in the Western leadership seem to make the point that Al Qaeda is a deviant phenomenon within the Islamic world, just as Hitler was a deviant phenomenon within the Christian world (commentators seems to overlook Hitler's early speeches calling on Catholic principles). But Islam has a much better record over the ages (despite its founder being far more warlike than the founder of Christianity) of dealing with its deviants who take violence to excess. Islamic culture has never been tolerant of Nazism, fascism or communism. Christianity has spawned all three. Buddhism failed to resist Japanese militarism and Confucianism provided hospitable to Maoism. Yes, there was Saddam Hussein but he was an atheistic brute without an ideology.

Of course, there have been many incidents in the long history of Islam when there have been large-scale losses of life. The massacres and starvation of the Armenians in 1915 still stirs the waters of contemporary debate. But Islam has never spawned anything comparable with Hitler's systematic genocide of the Jews- indeed throughout its history Islam has been protective of the Jews, regarding them as “people of the book” to whom it had a special responsibility. Nor has it settled other parts of the world and systematically obliterated other civilizations as did Christian Spain with the Aztecs and Incas. Nor have Islamic societies created anything equivalent to South Africa's apartheid or the racist culture of the old American South. Unlike many Christian churches the mosque has never separated people by race. Even today Americans confess that nowhere is there more segregation in their society than at the Sunday noon hour.

Western memories are highly selective. When at Easter time the Greek peasants of the Peloponnese began to kill all the Muslims in the land there was silence. But fifty years later when there were mass killings of Christians in Bulgaria there was a great outpouring of moral outrage. Delacroix immortalized the massacre in his painting, “Massacre of Chaos”, with Christian women pursued by Turkish lancers and Gladstone wrote a best selling pamphlet in which he described the Ottomans as leaving “a broad line of blood marking the track behind them, and as far as their domination reached civilization vanished from view”.

Almost forgotten today is that it was the Ottomans who gave refuge to the Jews when they were expelled from Iberia, as were fleeing German, French and Czech Protestants, but every cultivated Westerner knows Voltaire's “Fanaticism or Mohammed the Prophet” or Dante's portrayal of Mohammed in hell.

Christianity has always been led or dominated by people of European descent. But the leadership of the Muslim world has been much more fragmented- between AD 661 and 750 it was the Arab Umayyad dynasty. Between 750 and 1258 it was the multi ethnic Abbasid dynasty. And from 1453 to 1922, the Turkish-dominated Ottoman Empire. In India there was the separate Moghuls and in Persia the Safavids. In sub-Saharan Africa there were the Muslim empires of Mali and Songhai.

Despite their relative poverty today, with great teaming cities like Cairo, Dacca and Jakarta, criminal violence is much, much lower than in Christian-influenced societies. Muslim countries, according to the UN's annual Human Development report, have the world's lowest murder and rape rates. In Tehran, the capital of Iran, and according to the CIA the most important single source of terrorism today, you can go out at 11 or 12pm at night and find families with children picnicing in city parks. When my daughters' friends ask me where can they safely travel alone in an interesting Third World city I say Cairo. Certainly not Catholic Rio or Protestant Cape Town. Not only are murders and muggings comparatively rarer there is much less prostitution and hard drug use. Neither is there that much AIDS.

The Western debate about Islam is frankly infantile. Even Barack Obama, with his own personal experience to go off, either is ignorant or just scared of going into battle on these issues. I have not read one speech by one Western politician who seriously attempts to educate public opinion. We live in a slough of ignorance.

General Board / Salary Raise for Nigerian Politicians.
« on: August 21, 2008, 04:53:36 AM »
Nigerian politicians are all set to get a 100% salary raise effective from May 2008 (i.e. with arrears). The annual salary of President Umar Musa Yar adua

will be approximately 11 million Naira; vice president will be approximately 9 million Naira; Senate president will get approx. 10 million; ministers will get

approx. 16 million per person per annum, presidential advisors: approx 16 million/person/annum; Senators: approx 17 million/person/annum. The salary is

inclusive of such allowances as newspaper allowance which is approximately N300,000/ person/annum and domestic allowance (for cooks and houseboys)

which ranges from 1.4 to 1.7 million for senators and honorables. Leave allowance is about N350,000/person/annum.

The minimum wage in Nigeria is N7000. Recently teachers went on strike to demand better pay and working conditions. It took almost two months for the

government to listen to their plea. At the end, they only got 27.5% raise. If a head master is earning 180,000 per annum, a 27.5% raise on his salary

would come to just under 300,000 Naira per annum, which is even less than the newspaper allowance of politicians' salary! Where is the justice in this? Who is more

important in the the society or who contributes more to the society? Haba jama'a!

General Board / Arrest warrant for Umar Albashir
« on: July 15, 2008, 09:08:37 AM »
An arrest warrant may soon be issued for Umar Hassan Albashir, the Sudanese president. This is welcome news. I hope that the  judges at the Hague who are currently deliberating the issue arrive at a concensus for issuance of the warrant.
Comments from forum members welcomed.

General Board / Home page Hacked
« on: June 27, 2008, 08:03:58 PM »
I would like to bring to the notice of the admin, although I am sure he knows by now that the Konline homepage has been hacked by someone. Thank God I have the link to the real site that is how I can  access the site now. The home page is now zilch. Do something about it admin.
Or is it only me who gets rerouted to a different morbid looking webpage when ever I type ?

General Board / Hindu Rufai
« on: June 27, 2008, 08:00:38 PM »
It is with a heavy heart that I write this. I just heard of the passing away of  dear acquaintance, Hindu Rufai. I had always been wondering why she wasnt newscasting of late. Apparently she has been away from the BBC on sick leave. Allah Ya Jikan ta da Rahma ameen. It really brings home one's own mortality when u hear the death of someone you know personally.
