Asian Art Museum in San Francisco

During the first week of September, I made a trip with a friend to the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco. Every first Sunday of the month, admission into the museum is free. It is my first time to visit there and I was most impressed with the huge number of Buddhas on display. Most of the pieces are in excellent condition. It is amazing 600-year-old pottery and all these stone statues of Buddha that looks like it was made yesterday. What really brings this place to life for me are the brilliant combination of social mixers and live performance events mixed with cultural education. Asian Art Museum in San Francisco has a collection of about 17,000 objects of art and artifacts from all major Asian countries. In this museum, there are unique collection of Asian art and the famous bronze statue of Buddha from China. Chinese Buddha statue is the world's oldest known recorded from 338 AD. In this museum there are several main galleries devoted to the art of South Asia, West Asia (including Persia), Southeast Asia, Himalaya, China, Korea and Japan. I was quite impressed with the collection of Buddhist items, with entire sections dedicated to Buddhism from different time periods and regions. Of all the historical artifacts, I would say what became most apparent and valuable as a take-away lesson was the diversity of Buddha imagery in Buddhism, again depending on time periods and regions.

Specifically, the statue of the Buddha surprised me. My first impression is that it looks quite like a certain other religious leader popular and dominant in Western culture. The description of the statue points out certain...

Asia Bibi

...Aasia bibi Case According to a statement (1), Aasia Bibi claims that On June 8, 2009 she was working on a farm with her 3 Muslim co-workers. There a Muslim lady refused to drink water touched by a Christian. This led to a discussion on the religious beliefs of two communities. Following this, a number of hot exchanges took place between her and the Muslim women. After 8 days, Qari Muhammad Salim, a local maulvi, using three Muslim women as witnesses, lodged an FIR against her that she has committed Blasphemy. She was arrested on this basis. Qari Salim, told a CNN reporter that “Her death sentence was one of the happiest moments of his life. Tears of joy poured from my eyes". The opinions of public have been divided on Aasia’s case. Some believes that she has actually committed blasphemy by insulting the Prophet. While some believes that the case was filed under pressure from influential local people, and is based on settling personal scores. (2) Amongst the catalogue of violations to her basic human rights, a matter of grave concern is Aasia Bibi’s lack of access to legal representation. During the initial investigation conducted by SP Muhammad Amin Bokhari, she was deprived of following Basic Human Rights, • She begged for a pardon several times as she did not understand the nature of her offence or what constitutes blasphemy. • At no stage, was her crime explained to her. • She had no access to a lawyer or any form of legal counsel during her long ordeal in jail.......
