Comment:Dear Mr. Iqbal, As an Americn-American-Muslim (note, that i have to "double qualify" my own nationality, because my brown skin color draws question to my patriotism), I would like to thank you for sharing this life-scarring experience with the world. I wish that wheelchair-bound senior citizen will also relate here story in Farsi to her own community, and in her own way. I am sure that the US Government's CIA, FBI, INS, NSA, DOJ (and the list goes on) are tapping into this website for intelligence gathering purposes. Hopefully, If God willls, they will get some "intelligence" about the inhumane treatment they impose on their fellow human beings. Respectfully yours, Another Blindfolded American

Comment:I read this article in the paper, over the Net and through personal e.mail. Dr. Muzaffar is a personal friend, a person whom I respect, and an author of some renoun: [Inkh'a^la; Inq'ta'a; From Sad Generations to Baghh(?); Hallaj...(?); Urdu Short Story (? Oxford U. Press) ; editor, Pakistan Literature, among others. Also, world-level association with Islamic administrative and organizational work]. His twice monthly columns appears in the NEWS. I am, however, not making a further reference to him here because I see commercial messages along with this article. I wonder what is the correlation between the two. Is he endorsing these commercials, is he a partner of a percentage of sales [no harm; we all have to earn our livelihoods.] or whether a percentage of the proceeds is to go to his charitable work, or is it happening without his knowledge and/or participation? Somebody at soundvision.com should clarify. I am not concerned, really, one way or the other. However, I feel I must have some idea as to the nature of this relationship for my piqued curiosity to sit at rest. **** He is as principled as a self-respecting person should be. I am so glad that he declined to enter the US. This is a model of behaviour before us to follow and emulate. So far as 'profiling' or discrimination etc. are concerned, they are part of our lives now for many decades to come. There is only one way to get out of them and that is implied in the question of the lady from Iran in Toronto. She says the "Americans think they can discriminate and insult people, and everybody should obey them!" Yes, they can, and yes, they will continue to do so. And why? Because WE have placed them in this position. They can go in Afghanistan and do the "regime-change" bit; they want the same in Iraq and who does, and can, oppose them? Muslim nations? No, theWestern nations. The Germanys, the Frances, the Russias, the people of Australia, the UK., Italy, Spain! Their allies? They include: Pakistan, Kazakhistan, kryghyzstan, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Behrain, Qatr, Yemen, Oman, [those who don't or won't object: Morroco, Sudan, (now, Syria too), Jordan, all the UAE states, Indonesia, Malaysia, Nigeria, Libya, Tunisia ..... To wit: all the countries of the Arab League {minus Iraq}, or all the 57 countries of the OIC]! It has to be the height of idiocy to be the slimy "wretched" of the humanity and expect others to treat you with respect. For them to be civilized enough to treat you otherwise. Why should others be "ashamed" to treat us the way we have presented ourselves to be treated? We should say sayonara to the Gandhi-British modelof humility and the 'old-world' conscience, I think. The British were never afraid of Gandhi because he showed them their immoral or unethical face. That may have been true only of a handful of individuals, or of Battenberg [Mount Batten] who besides meeting Gandhi had already met Nehru with whom both the husband and wife had fellen in love. No, the British were afraid of Gandhi's power in numbers. Nobody should remain under the false impression of the moral and "conscience" power of "the-fast-unto-death". Just remember how many people fasted-unto-death" and died in Northern Ireland. Nobody gave a damn to those deaths!! The reason Gandhi succeeded where others failed was the fact that there were 400 million people behind him who would have reduced the "British Indian Empire" to ashes had the Brits not paid attention to Gandhi'S wishes. The Americans are too crude to be driven by that kind of conscience, morality or ethics that characterized parts of the old world of the 20th century. The Americans are the breed which thrived on the 'opening of the West' where their civility was confined to making tobacco pouches of the breasts of the Indian women whose tribes they had dislocated and slaughtered in the process of 'opening' of the west! It shouldn't take the proverbial brain surgeon or the space scientist to figure out that a scapegoat is a safegoat! And we are as safe as they come!! Yes, we will be treated the way the Americans want us to trea; till the day, that is, when we make our presence felt by work, superior knowledge, research, analysis predicated on honesty, civility, an internalized empathy for others and moral ethics of the spirit of discovery, physical and spiritual. Progress par excellence! And even then we shall not be superior to anybody; just good enough for ourselves.

Comment:i am so disappointed by this. but then i am also ashamed of the lack of agreement that moslems have amongst one another, i truly beleive that we should forget out country and forget our rulers and just unite firmly on the base of our relegion.its time we became a power to reckon with

Comment:well it seems that being a muslim now is far worse then being a jew . is this because of our own selves our because of the racialism found in the western world . I think we are not thinking as nation of islam but the westen world is thinking like an ummah or nation . this has been demonstrated time and time again. if we help each other with one voice then can we demand our rights .

Comment:I don't know what to say...I find this article very disturbing...because it's real... I guess all we can do is to prepare for harder times and pray for everyone who has to go thru unjust and unfair treatment, and remember that inshAllah whoever treats another person unjustly will be held accountable for it... Peace on all of our Ummah, may Allah swt, guide us and protect us from the evils of this world. ameen.

Comment:What Mr. Iqbal had to undergo is a disgrace to our own constitution.I am an American Muslim, and of Puerto Rican decent; Because I resemble a Pakistani women, I can not begin to tell the horrible things that have been said to me since the 9/11 nightmare.It's as if I am re-living the nightmare on a daily basis. which is very hard for me because I just excepted Islam a little less than year ago. My husband says to me that this is my jihad in life. One day the truth shall set all muslims free from this nightmare. Peace be upon all Bothers and Sisters

Comment:At least Mr. Iqbal had a Canadian citizenship and was aware about rules and regulations about Canadian citizens, but what about citizens of the listed countries especially those who are old and cant speak the language? May Allah swt show us the way so we can bring a change in this society for the good.

Comment:Hi, My sister is leaving in state more than 13 years. In Agues my mom came here in Canada to visit me after one year and she got a visa to go to state to visit my sister and her husband who is American and my mom didn't meet him before. My mother can't speak English and she's about 54 years old. They didn't allow me to go with her, I was waiting there till her flight gone. However, they kept my mom in the immigration room. They fingerprinted her and asked too many silly questions, fortunately there was a Persian guy there to translate for my mom. She lost her flight and all of us were worry for her. American think that they can discriminate and insult people, and everybody should obey them! Such a shame.

Something to Ask...
My Rubb,
I beg of you good that lies in this night and good that follows it, and I seek refuge in You from the evil that lies in this night and from the evil of that which follows it. My Rubb! I seek refuge in You from lethargy and the misery of old age. O Allah! I seek Your Protection from the torment of Hell-fire and the punishment of the grave.
