“The elections are badly organized sources of conflict,” he said at the opening of the workshop on ” citizen observation of the biometric voter registration . ” Who took place from the 4th to 6th March 2014 in Abidjan- Plateau.
This workshop was followed by a discussion meeting , on Saturday, March 8 around the international evaluation for the preparations of the 2015 presidential election in Côte d’Ivoire report.
The gauze should be removed immediately after the bleeding stops.It is a fact that gauze invariably gets infected if it is kept for a long time,since it is a foreign body, said Dr Manda Ghorpade,head of the gynecology department in Sane Guruji Arogya Kendra in Hadapsar,where Reshma was treated.
Residents of Mundhwa,Reshma and Shamlal ,who works as a cleaner at a housekeeping company,hail from Bhadrak district in Orissa and moved to Pune two years ago.
“It was very painful.Initially,we thought it was normal to feel sore,but when I saw maggots,we were alarmed and went to the doctor straight away.The reason we did not file a complaint of medical negligence is because we are from a different state and I don’t even know any language other than Oriya.My husband does not have enough time and resources to fight the case, said Reshma”.
Any delay would have made the wound even worse and there were high chances of her contracting septicemia.We immediately removed the gauze swab and put turpentine for clear the wound of maggots,and later applied ointments.We put her on antibiotics,so that the infection gets healed quickly.It was so painful,that she was not even allowing us to touch her, added Dr Ghorpade.
Dr Shubhada Deoskar, a city based gynecologist,was shocked at the medical negligence on display.It is sad that such a thing has happened.Such a mistake is totally unacceptable.Gauze pack is one of the methods used to stop bleeding after delivery. Whenever such a pack is used,we always make a note that it has to be removed after certain period of time. When we go on the rounds,the first question we ask the resident doctors is whether the pack is removed, she said.
Hope she gets better soon enough to finally take care of her new born baby.
According to Linda Ikeji’s blog, Imam Daayiee Abdulah originally was born and raised in Detroit as a Christian of the Baptist faith. But somehow while in China for further studies, he got himself converted to Islam .
So what motivated the new Islamic Daayiee Abdulah to become an Iman? the spiritual gap that existed in the Islamic faith for the lesbians, gays & transsexuals was the drive, all in the hope of providing an ideal channel of Islamic support for them, he says. More after the cut…
“Being an openly gay imam and having been identified as such, I do get a lot of feedback and also kickback, but that’s OK,” he said. “I think that when people are unfamiliar with things, they tend to have an emotional knee-jerk reaction to it. Sometimes necessity is the mother of invention. And because of the necessity in our community, that’s why I came into this particular role.”
He continue saying…
“They had contacted a number of imams, and no one would go and provide him his janazah services. This pained me. I believe every person, no matter if I disagree with you or not, you have the right as a Muslim to have the proper spiritual rites and rituals provided for you. And whoever judges you, that will be Allah’s decision, not me. The beautiful thing about God is that when you change your attitude, and say, ‘God, I need some help,’ and mean it sincerely, God is always there for you,”
Abdullah is an imam and educational director of the Light of Reform Mosque in Washington, D.C, and reffers to the place as a rare safe space for Muslim LGBT
Well lets recall the Bible and Quran, The International Community of Submitters / Masjid Tucson makes reference to the Old Testament, saying in Genesis 19, we see the story of Sodom and Gomorrah, where Lot implores the people of his town not to act wickedly and to leave his male guests alone. The story goes on to describe the persistence of the townsfolk in wishing to indulge in homosexuality and the subsequent annihilation of the two communities. Other verses in the Old Testament also prohibit homosexuality, e.g. Leviticus 18:22, 20:13. In the New Testament, we see similar proscriptions in I Corinthians 6:9, I Timothy 1:8-10, Romans 1:26-27 (the translation used is the New American Standard Bible).
You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination. [Leviticus 18:22]
Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. [1 Corinthians 6:9-10]
For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error. [Romans 1:26-27]
Lot: Homosexuality Condemned
Lot said to his people, “You commit such an abomination; no one in the world has done it before! You practice sex with the men, instead of the women. Indeed, you are a transgressing people.” His people responded by saying, “Evict them from your town. They are people who wish to be pure.” [7:80-82]
Lot said to his people, “How could you commit such an abomination, publicly, while you see? You practice sex with the men, lustfully, instead of the women. Indeed, you are ignorant people.” The only response from his people was their saying, “Banish Lot’s family from your town; they are people who wish to be pure.” [27:54-56]
I no doubt believe Abdulah has all these words at hand anyway…
Treichville is a commune of Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire. The commune is known as one of the most lively in the city, specially around the Crossroad France-Amérique. Its name comes from Marcel Treich-Laplène (1860-1890), who was French resident in Côte d’Ivoire. Its current mayor, elected at the municipal election in March 2001 is François Amichia, former minister of tourism.

I was disturbed by this story when reading it on http://www.hrw.org, these boys or rather children are from various nationalities; their story shows they are resilient and brave in finding their path in such remarkable journeys alone. Read on please….
“No woman should lose her rights when she loses her husband – but an estimated 115 million widows live in poverty, and 81 million have suffered physical abuse. Girls married to much older men are especially vulnerable. Let us use International Widows’ Day to advocate for the rights of all widows so they can enjoy better lives and realize their great potential to contribute to our world.” by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.
