This is a blog of a person who concerns for his religions. Today, Google, yahoo, BBC, CNN and hundreds of European TV channels show a rough face of Islam and specially Shia Muslims.  You just need to search Google with terms like #Shia, #Ashura or #Muharram and Google shows you several photos of self flagellation with chains and blades which a minority of Muslims and Hindu people in Pakistan, Afghanistan and India perform during Ashura. This action, called Tatbir (تتبیر) or QamehZani (قمه زنی) is not legal in Shia and almost all grand Ayatollahs in Iran and Iraq prohibited it (Haraam). But Google insist in its results, so that people which search for Shia beliefs, be disappointed on the first encounter with Shia. Consider that someone decide to convert to Shia, and start searching about Shiite in web, what will happen? ...

Here in this personal blog, I want to show a pure face of Shia Islam and I hope, Allah help me in this way.
