“Declare Allah the greatest! Allah is the greatest”. Well these are the lines recited by the most wealthy terror group, “ISIS or the Islamic State”. The name ‘ISIS’ is really trending among the people globally. We know ISIS was not formed in a single day. Where does the Islamic State came from? Who created them? You need to know the truth.

Today, ISIS is the biggest threat to national security of any country. Known for the mass execution, ISIS is the most brutal savage group with the prime motto clearly indicated in the first line of the article.


To know the origin of the Islamic State we need to understand the two major story lines. First one, the US action which destroyed Iraq, toppled Saddam Hussein, and completely damaged the Iraqi society. Many people who lived under Saddam were seen as enemies, US military treated them very badly. So, US created conditions in Iraq to get ISIS start in.

The other story is to understand that even with Saddam gone; ISIS couldn’t have risen to power. ISIS begun as a small insurgent group in Iraq in 2006, they had no money, no real ability to recruit but they did work to create limited problems to US military. In 2009, ISIS shifted their focus from Iraq to the civil war in Syria. There also they struggled to gain popularity because of the two largest groups, Al-Qaeda and Free Syrian Army (FSA) fighting against the President Bashar-Al-Assad. In June 2013, northern General of FSA asked International help in order to make their rebel a success to overthrow the Syrian President. Well, within just a matter of weeks of plea by Syrian General; the US, the Saudis, Jordan, Qatar, Turkey and Israel began providing weapons, training and money to the FSA.

In Sept 2013, American media started reporting that Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) funded weapons have started flowing to Syrian rebels. Weapons were not American made but funded and organized by CIA. The weapons that insisted to be used by freedom fighters were in hands of ISIS in less than a year.

So, where these fighters came from? Actually from the Free Syrian Army, the group with a motto to help US in overthrowing ‘Assad’ started giving and selling weapons and sending fighters to join with the new group called the Islamic State. It was in June 2014 when suddenly after being no name group in Syria; ISIS emerged heavily armed, trained by US and coalition special forces. Crossing back the Syrian border to Iraq, capturing the northern part of the country, ISIS became the new face of terror. The fact is that ISIS was able to grow fast because of all the US military equipment they seized that was left in Iraq after the war. Also, media ignored the videos and posts made by ISIS with the US military equipments.

Who is responsible for the creation of ISIS? It’s the product of direct action of America. First the action of creating a power vacuum in Iraq and secondly are the mean violent jihadists hoping they would overthrow a leader in a neighboring Middle East country. USA is responsible for the formation of the wealthiest terror group. ISIS make a profit 2 million dollars daily by selling oils. Also, US used to send funds of several hundred million dollars to Free Syrian Army to fight ISIS after knowing that the latter is the biggest suppliers of fighters and weapons to the terror group.

US government is a victim of its own insane policies and Americans are the hostage as they are the tax payers.

Feminism itself is nothing but a simple movement that pursues equal rights for women (including transwomen) and against misogyny both external and internal.

"In India, to be born as a man is a crime, to question a woman is an atrocious crime, and this all because of those women who keep suppressing men in the name of feminism."

Feminism, a worldwide movement that started to establish, define and defend equal rights for women in all sections- economically, politically, and socially. India, being a patriarchal society gives a gender advantage to the men in the society thus, Indian feminists sought to fight against the culture-specific issue for women in India. Feminism itself is nothing but a simple movement that pursues equal rights for women (including transwomen) and against misogyny both external and internal. It states nowhere that women should get more wages than men, that women deserve more respect than men, that's pseudo-feminism.

Yakshi statue by Kanayi Kunjiraman at Malampuzha garden, Kerala

Kerala is a land of many good things. It has an abundance of nature, culture, art, and food. It is also a place of legend and myth, and is known for its popular folklore, the legend of Yakshi. This is not a popular tale outside the state, but it is common knowledge for travellers, especially those who fare through forests at night.

The legend of the yakshi is believed to be India's equivalent of the Romanian Dracula, except of course, the Yakshi is a female. Many Malayalis believe that the Yakshi wears a white saree and had long hair. She has a particular fragrance, which is believed to be the fragrance of the Indian devil-tree flowers. She seduces travellers with her beauty, and kills them brutally.

Ancient India not only made mentions of homosexuality but accepted it as well.


The LGBTQ+ acronym stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and others. In India LGBTQ+ community also include a specific social group, part religious cult, and part caste: the Hijras. They are culturally defined either as "neither men nor women" or as men who become women by adopting women's dress and behavior. Section 377 of the India Penal code that criminalized all sexual acts "against the order of nature" i.e. engaging in oral sex or anal sex along with other homosexual activities were against the law, ripping homosexual people off of their basic human rights. Thus, the Indian Supreme Court ruled a portion of Section 377 unconstitutional on 6th September 2018.
