Most of us like cinema, like seeing movies and watching series. Many of us like actors and there are even those who consider actors and actresses as ideal persons! Personally, I appreciate cinema, I’m one of its fans actually and that’s why I was happy when I heard about the Algerian movie “L’oranais” which was produced and directed by an Algerian called ‘Ilyes Salem’. “L’oranais” is about the phase after the Algerian revolution, but it gives a new point of vi...

When is enough enough? When does the violence stop? When does love prevail? Why fight with strangers when you can make friends? To all my brothers and sisters out there who are victimised by someone's hatred or ignorance, I am truly and extremely sorry:( Before I go on further, allow me to introduce myself and my rather peculiar reason for writing this article. My name is Shayna Robinson, recently turned 16 and I live in Singapore, known for its greenery, cleanliness, cultura...

Ever since a young age I’ve always questioned society. I grew up in a Christian school however the idea of religion never really stuck. I always forced myself to put aside everything I felt and made myself see only absolute truths behind everything clearly and a lot of possibilities opened up to me about human nature and life in general. The first thing I questioned was predictably religion. What I find it always comes down to is a need to believe in life after death and a ne...

Do we need to consider religion or the caste of a person when we associate with someone? I think the answer should be, NO. It's different to expand our thinking ability because horizons mean what the limitations are, on behalf of our emotions. You should be an emotional person, but not break your qualities as a human being. Furthermore, If you are living with a narrow mind (with emotions), you may be afraid to go through that too. Here is a recent example: Almost three...

Islam, a faith that is so similar to Christianity yet so different has left many confused yet it is a prevalent faith that has dominated in numbers. Why is it the second largest religion in the world yet the average American has limited if not any knowledge of this religion? It is sickening that those who claim to know the “true” Islam are actually the ones that have no conception of it, or in reality Christianity. I once had a discussion with a friend about Islam and I was...

Starting tomorrow Muslims across the world will begin fasting during the month of Ramadan. Being a British Muslim, I am often faced with questions like "Why do you fast?" or "What is Ramadan?" I believe it is important for us all to be aware of different cultures and religions so I thought I'd share a little bit of Ramadan with you all. Ramadan is the holiest month in the Islamic calendar and it was in this month that the Qur'an was revealed to the prophet Muhammad. Musli...

The fate of mankind, as well as religion, depends on the emergence of a new faith in the future. Armed with such a faith, we might find it possible to resanctify the earth. This faith is us, the young people, taking charge of implementing the sustainable future that our leaders will discuss at Rio+20. Let us not just talk but acting too. We are the youth of the world's society. We are the only hope so let's make some noise!!! Let us show the world how serious we are in promotin...
