Minarets are Banned in Switzerland

So finally the Swiss decision came up of banning the minarets. A blunt act of discrimination which is being defened by hiding behind a referendum & sugar coating it in the name of a debate. An architectural religious symbol being defined as a political symbol, while those it belongs to reject this definition. Why only limited to the minarets the? What about the symbols of other religions? When are they gonna be banned in the name of politics? Well guess its time for me to get out of my day dreaming.

On a second thought isn't this pointing towards a fact that Islamophobia is a political stunt rather than an ideology of Islam; something even a COMMON MAN has been declaring at the top of his voice. It took a lot of years & destruction for a Sectary of State of USA to admit the blunder her government committed with regards to Afghanistan; so admitting this foul play will take a lot more years as well. In the meanwhile discrete discrimination will rule.

Where is this global village headed?

Marketing at its WORST!!!!!

video


This is absurd to say the least. And I am so much looking forward to shredding this ad in my next marketing lecture. My irritation includes the unnecessary presence of women, the flying act (which is performed by the air forces) while the name of the brand is "Diplomat".

Me thinks that tobacco companies along with the banking sector need to review their marketing departments without any further delays. As both of these cooperate sectors seriously challenge one's common sense.
