Ghajar community….marginalized minority!!

It is unfortunate that in our world today some communities continue to suffer from marginalization and undermining. The community of Ghajar is exposed to unprecedented wave of injustice and discrimination. European countries notably France and Italy are planning to remove and send away this minority from their places for inconvincible reasons.

Since they came from India to Europe 1000 years ago, Ghajar people occupied a marginalized position in European affairs. They did not have a specific place where they lived in and never declared war against any nation. Scientifically, It did not appear among this people recognized figures for producing some achievements at the international level. In the past, they earned for their lives through different ways. Basically they worked in "witchcraft ", horse trade and fraud. They were known as unproductive society that deceived according to circumstances. However, regardless to their situation they lived in their private world.

Although, recently a few number of Ghajar people emerged as cultural heroes outside their original community, few of them also had bad reputation because the crimes they committed. This fact made Nicola Sarkozi and Berli Skoni to turn world attention that this minority is a serious security threat in order to collectively expulse them from their countries. Part of Ghajar community was considered to be meant by "Criminal Clans Law" that was issued in 1871 by Great Britain which said that 161 clans as "children of criminals". However, a late study concluded that this law came as a result to extreme ignorance to social construction of the cultural institutions. But the question now is. Will France and Italy commit the same mistakes when they extradite Ghajar people collectively from their countries? And what are the hidden reasons behind this decision.

Sarkozy immigration policy sparked the light on Ghajar people and put them in the center of world attention, something that puhsed Italy which previously considered them as a goupe of criminals to put them among the list of expulsion. The number of Ghajar in Italy who immigrated from Balcan five centuries ago reached around 180 thousands person which outnumbered even those who lived in Britain but they remained different from Italian due to their language and traditions.

During the two recent decades this situation changed because a huge number of Ghajar arrived to the western world coming from Eastern Europe: Croatia, Bosnia, and Kosovo running from the devastating wars that ruined Yugoslavia in the beginning of 9th of last century. They came also form Romania after the assassination of its president Nicolay Shousisko and the opening of borders in the same time.

the critical moments where when Romania was admitted into European Union January 2007which facilitated to Romanian nationals to move inside all European countries. Southlands of immigrants moved to Italy causing problems to the government as it was difficult to send them off to their own countries .

Now, as European countries are standing to disturb this people lives and kick them out to the unknown, miserable future hangs over this community. Ironically, Ghajar people acceptedely supported by communist regime Soviet Union which was criticized by the west for underming human rights. When Soviet Union fell apart this people were obliged to move toward Western Europe to a better life. Researches' have been done about this nation in terms of origins, religion, and culture. Nevetherless, till now, there is no striking evidence about their origins.

Have a good time

Mauritania the dream land!
Moustapha Ould Samoury (guest) 27 Jul 2010 17:43

Mauritania! The dream land.

Mauritania is a place of inspiration. When you visit this country, your life will change. Spiritual seekers swear of substantially sand dunes, giddily deep canyons and large eye-popping plateaus. Sure there are several places to be discovered in West Africa but few are like those in Mauritania. This is the impression that a group of tourists came up with when they visited the country. they were truthful in what they went to. According to a recent statistics made by local ministry of culture and tourism more than eight thousand tourists visited Mauritania this year. Mauritania’s natural diversity as its colorful population stands to be a rare place for education, culture, moral values, love and peace. It has been giving the world a peak of mature, dynamic, initiative and balanced scholars and unbeaten poets. Wherever our students apply for study they major. We have been boldly competing others in international assignments despite that we are few in number and others are counted in crowds. Hospitality is noticed to everyone who takes the chance to land in our country. You might be surprised that in some of our cities, no existence to hotels, visitors are hosted for free. When you investigate in this humanly honorable treatment, you will find that people there are naturally generous! All of what they possess is a sacrifice for their dignity. Of course they do business and collect money but in accordance to locally social criteria. It is not just like what it is in parts of the world where people do whatever they can get away with it. Wealth never tempts them to do shameful actions; for them charging a visitor is considered as a shame. Moreover, hospitality is ordered in the Holly Quran our constitution. Unfortunately, most of the good traditions that we inherited from our forefathers are gradually disappearing due to the overwhelming globalization.
Above is not for promotion-which is my right- but a statement of truth that comes from a heart in love with his beloved country Mauritania

Yes ma,

I am still in Abu Dhabi.

I am just trying to stay connected to writing because at work we speak more than we write. And the best thing to write about is to share with my ex-classmates what i learn from others

Thanks dear teacher

Ideas that we can benefit from, stretching!
Moustapha Ould Samoury (guest) 23 Jul 2010 20:11
in discussion Hidden / Per page discussions » Message Board

Stretching

I read recently a book that stuck out of me. The book was for John C. Maxwell entitled Be All You Can Be. This book is a major resource for building a good personality. It guides us to probe into our internal world and investigate about how we can face the challenge to stretch our potential and finally establish a successful life that is full of happiness, planning and experience. In fact, it is an orientation for self -determination as an attempt to strengthen our potential to lead our own life. Stretching is defined as a kind of self-motivation. It is a step further to be there first and always able to take what life throws at you. It is a courageous feeling that nothing is impossible as long as we have determination
Throughout my reading I came across some inspirational ideas that I want to share with you here:
There are uncountable obstacles in the individual life that stand between him and his future. Shyness, fear, discouragement, laziness and hopefulness are a direct cause for our failure. In a large part of our community some individuals hold an inner negative assessment about themselves and as a result of that they develop a sort of weak easily swayed personality, personality that is afraid of future and unable to productively engage in the society. And this is what the book is talking about.
People who are not stretching prefer to stay in more secure position. They don’t like to risk. Although they are naturally born stretching, they find latter that this attitude exposes them to danger. As a result they give up; they don’t want to confront with life outcomings. In this case, they match stretching with hardship, something that stops them from continuing to stretch.

For those who keep stretching, are in a position that makes them vulnerable to people comments because they are facing the challenge. Unfortunately, road to success is full of critics. People take it to criticize others and lower from the importance of what they themselves failed in or not ready to do
Jonas Salk, who developed the polio vaccine, was attacked continually for his creative, inventive work in the medical field. He found that there are three kinds of criticism. The first one is when people tell you that you are wrong. After they have seen you doing well in your life, they say that what you are doing is not really that important. Finally, after they see that it is important, they will say that they are convicted that you can do some good things. The best thing to do to face people critics is the fruit of your labor.
You should never quit that habit of stretching in order to stay in a defensive situation. What you are doing is the right thing and continue to do it even though they are cutting you off. People who know the value of success will appreciate it those who don’t appreciate it will lower from your effort anyway.

Luck of understanding can be another factor of limiting from our potential. Maxwell precisely elaborates in this point by saying,

We are also vulnerable to misunderstanding. Often people whose own motives are wrong will feel threatened by us if we are stretching to be our best. They react by questioning the validity of our motives, accusing us of doing our best for some impure purpose.
For Maxwell, much of the blame is to us.

Not only are we vulnerable to the reactions of others, but we can be vulnerable to ourselves. We are often harder on ourselves, than other people are. If we have no goals, we won’t recognize failure, but if we’re stretching for success, we will fail from time to time. We need to learn how to deal with that. Don’t ever let failure become final. be aware that discouragement is failure’s partner. The best way to pull yourself out of discouragement is to surround yourself by people who are encouragers. Get a friend who really understands the value of affirmation, who really believes in you. Do you know the best way to get encouragers around you? Become an encourager yourself.

In these paragraphs, we have discussed criticism, failure, misunderstanding and discouragement. Never allow one of these things prevent you from achieving your goals and objectives. In order to succeed in that mission, you need first to ask yourself for a moment where are you vulnerable?
For Maxwell there are some reasons why people stop stretching. The first reason is that they put themselves around people who are bored and boring. His advice for us is to stay around those who are actively alive if we want to be productive in the society and realize our dreams. This is because we will get the needed inspiration and know what is better for us by learning from good examples.

Secondly, work duties become easy job to do as we reputedly do the same thing for a long time. This necessitates on us to look always for new goals, new dimensions and new strategies so life will be renewing itself before our eyes and finally we become compassionate about our daily life

In your stretching periods you will probably have more problems than at any other time, and those will be the great times of your life.

Good luck

Moustapha

The echo of rain season at home

This period of time, our country is opening its doors to one of the most welcomed season in the year Al Kharif. A three month long season that we all wait to live its nice days.

Mauritania finds its real face in this season. Earth takes green color and sky loads with clouds and rains every time so giving a fantastic atmosphere where people enjoy themselves in a warmly familiar environment.

At this peak time when everybody is preparing to this occasion some are living the experience on TV screens. Citizens living outside even though they physically are not there, they feel touched to home and jump of joy every time there is news about rain at home. This occasion is a relief for Mauritanians. They forget life over-ridings. The focus becomes on how they will spend the autumn and where. Although the occasion costs, memorable moments are spent there and this repeatedly is renewed every year.

It is such an amazing time that we used to spent it with our lovely families and friends. Congratulations to whomever got the chance to be there.
