Media Response

The Media Desk contributes local, national and international news articles for the website and also focuses on news content of the Muslim world. etters commenting on broad issues are also regularly sent to the editors of newspapers Below are a few letters which were sent by the Media Desk and published in newspapers. Bias and negative reporting against Islam has become a very real phenomenon in the media, especially in the international press.

The Darul Ihsan Media Desk primarily monitors the media for Islamaphobic (anti-Islamic) comments and anti-Islamic sentiments made in the mainstream media and interacts positively with media portals conveying the Islamic perspective.

Unfortunately racism is common at all levels of social interaction and within cultural groups. It is not unique to South Africa; however it may be more noticeable here since we were exposed to decades of racism under apartheid.Racism comprises of a long list of things, inter alia, language barrier, skin colour, status, wealth, distinction, etc. In most cases we are blind to all these aspects of discrimination; therefore we need to fight these ‘disease’ at every level.Religious leaders and groups should take up the struggle against all forms of segregation. It would be worth mentioning that the Muslim community has a dedicated forum specially set-up to address issues of racism – it’s called the “Änti-Racism Education Forum”.

Reality in Darfur

The reality in Darfur

The reality in Darfur is one big political game between the global powers. It does not take a rocket scientist to figure out this reality. Conflicts like the Darfur crises are sometimes created and orchestrated for purposes of manipulation and coercion.

The truth will emerge one day.

Religion must be respected at all cost. Films, dramas, etc. of a derogatory nature on religion leads to mockery of that particular faith. This creates immense hostility within the followers of religion.Jesus (PBUH) is a revered messenger of GOD Almighty. Islam’s Divine Book – the Noble Quran – makes mention of Jesus (PBUH) in numerous verses expounding the sublime character of this great man.Muslims take strong objection against any attempts to denigrate any of the messengers of the Almighty. This is unacceptable and must be stopped at once.

South Africans horrified by the loss of innocent lives in countries like Iraq, were not too keen on the visit of Tony Blair to South Africa.The strong alliance Blair formed with Bush in attacking Iraq based on the unfounded weapons of mass destruction is nothing less than genocide. While Britain and South Africa may enjoy a healthy and strong trade relationship, our govn. must equally stand up to injustices committed by their trade partners. South Africa must be complemented for having stood firmly on the Palestinian crises. The same is expected in other situations of oppression & injustice.

Breast Feeding


Generally breast feeding is the best nourishment and prevention from many diseases.

Religions like Islam highly recommend breast feeding up to two years because breasts is best. In fact, if the mother is unable to breast feed then too it's recommended that a foster mother or breast feeding nurse be employed to feed the child - this shows the importance of breast milk for babies. Please encourage this practice through your columns.

Eastern Languages


 All South Africans are entitled to retain their religious and cultural identities through respectable means, language is one powerful identity which is deeply embedded in the hearts of many many people.The axing of Eastern languages from our schools must be seen in the correct context. The department's argument, is the low number of pupils that make-up for classes which is understandable. As parents, let us then increase the numbers and encourage our children to participate in the respective languages according to the culture or religions they belong. In this manner the Dept. may be motivated to continue and sustain the classes.
