by Mohib on December 5, 2007

Brass Crescent AwardsA collaborative blog helped I co-found, Indian Muslims, has been nominated to the prestigious Brass Crescent Awards in the Best Group Blog category. Brass Crescent Awards are given out to the best of Muslim Blogosphere annually and are now in their fourth year of running. Here is what I wrote at Indian Muslims on this occasion:

Right from its inception we have projected Indian Muslims as a collaborative platform to share ideas and engage in constructive discussions. This nomination in the Best Group Blog category is a vindication of our policy. We were also the finalists at the 2006 Indibloggies for Best Group/Community Blog. Over the past 6 months, Indian Muslims has grown by leaps and bounds with record number of visitors per day and a substantial increase in the number of comments on posts. Also, new authors have joined Indian Muslims bringing fresh perspective with them. All this has contributed to the ‘group feel’ of this blog and we will continue building upon this in future.

A common charge leveled against Muslims is that they don’t condemn terror. Or at the very least, they don’t condemn enough. One ex-PM in India tried to justify the mass-murder of 2000+ innocents in Gujarat in 2002 on this very premise. Ali Eteraz, provocateur par excellence, writes a good piece in Huffington Post on this [...]
