Unfortunately, the Muslim world today is one of the most oppressive and backward anywhere in the world. We've most dictators, least respect for human rights and guess what? most resources and the fastest growing population. The paradoxes are many, but what made me rant about the desperate state of the Muslim world today - which I'll come back for some other time - is a BBC program discussing abuse of children's rights around the world and the first episode is about Pakistan. It's heart-wrenching but a must listen to, we need to understand how sick we have become. Children in Pakistan are jailed with grown up criminals, detained without trail for weeks and months, tortured and abused by corrupt guards and no rehabilitation whatsoever. I suspect other Muslim countries like Egypt, Jordan and Indonesia will be the same if not worse - shame on us.
