Editorials

From the Desk of Managing Editor, Giri Gupta: 19 June
In life we all have images of what can be done and what cannot and unconsciously we find ourselves conforming to those images. It often takes someone to step outside the box to really show us that what we thought was impossible is actually achievable.

New Zealand’s largest Islamic centre comes to Auckland
New Islamic Centre

By Bluebell
I welcome Muslims into New Zealand as long as they come here to embrace our life style, our western laws and values.  If this is the not the reason they chose to come here, but for other reasons then I become very concerned. Large communities like this that you are planning to build does not look like you are blending into our NZ lifestyle, but becoming a separatist identity.  I notice in other Western Countries that muslims are not blending in
2nd Halal Tourism Symposium takes off in Auckland
Middle Eastern Tourism

By Joanna Cawte
Why would you want to provide Halal food to Tourists visiting out Country.  They come here to enjoy our country, our way of life and our food of course.  That is part of the whole experience.  We have our own laws in this country that are to be obeyed as we would obey the laws of Muslim countries that we would wish to visit.  We do not want any part of Sharia Law in this Country.  Accept us we are or find a Country that is willing to accept your laws.
