Why Canadians Ask “Where Are You From?”

A very odd questions that I usually encounter from strangers and peers is, “Where are you from?” I have been thinking about why they ask this question because I am finding that some Canadians are not nice people although they profess that they are. Actually, some of them are doing really weird things including workplace abuse and rape while camafloguging their bad behaviour with nice behaviour. I have experienced workplace abuse and rape while living in Canada, which is how I had an opportunity to observe the behaviour of the abusers. In one instance, an abuser harassed me at workplace; and, then he followed up with a friendly hello while offering me a candy. Anyways, I stopped working at that office because my complaint was not formally reviewed and considered due to their gang dynamics and ignorance of relevant policies.

I used to answer the question, “Where are you from?” because I thought that the Canadians were curious people and it is okay to reply back properly. However, all that changed after two particular events.

Incidence 1: Some years ago, I visited America and lived with Americans for some while. I was utterly shocked when I saw an American therapist dressed in her traditional ethnic clothes as she worked from her clinic. My first question was, “Do other Americans consider visiting her now that she is wearing her traditional clothes?” She told me that the Americans she has been interacting with are nice and accepting people. I felt a stab through my heart when I realized that it is in Canada, a country that prides itself to be multicultural, that I have to make sure no one sees me in my traditional clothing. I came across more Americans when I visited the mall and attended an event. I found them to be nice people. Then it hit me that Canadians complain a lot about Americans. Is it true? Are Americans really as bad as some of these Canadians are desperately trying to portray?

Incidence 2: I came across a very talented American professor who reviewed my poetry and commended me rather beautifully about my work. He made sure to encourage me to study things in detail. I was super-shocked for many years at what he said because I have not heard this kind of praise from most of the well-educated Canadians. Reality is that I find the environment offered by Canadian academic institutions very oppressive. I still remember being told by a Biology professor, “But this is just one paper”, when I asked him what he really thought about my Research Thesis—this happened at University of Toronto. He attempted to marginalize me instead of encouraging me. People like him are the reason why I am not pursuing a PhD in Sciences. And, I think today the world is facing a freaky crisis like Coronavirus because geniuses like me are constantly being abused by Canadians and thus they are forced to leave their studies. Read Canada’s Undiscovered Geniuses.

Today, I am thinking back to all of this. Canada is actually dangerously racist. My experience tells me that they love harming coloured people inside academic institutions and workplaces. As I thought more and more about everything, this answer formed and kept banging against my head until I decided to write this post.

Premise 1: Canada is an extremely racist country. These two article state that Canadians are more racist than Americans. Read “Study Proves Canada Is Actually More Racist Than The United States” and Canada’s race problem? It’s even worse than America’s.

Premise 2: Canadians play it nice while interacting; but, this attitude is compelling some people to become insane or feel very distraught and neglected. Read Why Canadian “Niceness” Is Unhealthy.

Conclusion: Therefore, it is clear to me that most Canadians ask, “Where you are from?” because they are assuming things or deciding whom to torture. Once, I was warned by a friend that certain people are talking at my back about my headscarf—which I have removed in self defence so that it may become easier for me to manage ongoing discrimination—and that I should avoid talking to them. Basically, I was asked not to be nice to them when the entire office was playing it nice.

Okay! Canada sounds very bizarre right!

A lot of Canadians do not stop probing if you hint to them that you are not interested in answering this question. Instead, they ask the same question differently, “We are Canadians. It helps to know where you are really from? Everyone here is from somewhere. You know what I mean.” See how confusing this sounds! I strongly advice everyone to ignore such questions as these are not serious inquiries but are meant to eventually exclude you. Very frankly, so many Canadians ask me this really personal question; but, I have been invited to tea parties only by a couple of individuals who demonstrated a genuine interest in me, which showed when they said or indirectly implied, “I don’t care about your skin or religion. Let us just hang out!”

I know that if you are a Canadian, then you will definitely doubt me after completing this reading. Doubting someone is a Canadian thing to do! Actually, misconstruing someone sane as insane and someone competent as lousy is also something very Canadian. So here are two more relevant articles. Read “Where Are You From” Is Not An Innocent Question To Ask Canadians “ and “Contradictions At The Heart Of Canada’s Multiculturalism“.

The more a person is “different” from white society, the more likely the average Canadian would want them to stay away. Source: “Contradictions At The Heart Of Canada’s Multiculturalism“.

So from here onwards, I will communicate differently with Canadian.

Rule 1: I will not answer any questions regarding my ethnic background. Truth is that I am a Canadian citizen; but, I feel that Canadians do not want to accept the truth that a person who is not White or is somehow “different from white society” can be a Canadian.

Rule 2: I will doubt every generous and nice move a Canadian makes until I figure out whether he/she is genuine or a covert racist.

There you have it! Life makes more sense now.

My Vision Of Torture of Kashmiris By Indians

On Sep 2, 2019 I wrote the blog post “How To Get Out Of Nightmares” in which I discussed my dreams about the rape and torture of Kashmiri women.

In one dream, I saw some men surrounding a woman; then they put a really large sword-like thing in her mouth; and, then they took it out and then they put it in again. The female victim was unable to even scream due to fear. Source: How To Get Out Of Nightmares

Just an hour ago, American journalist CJ Werleman tweeted a video by “Indian American Muslim Council” where Indian women discuss how the Hindutvu thugs who were holding swords attacked themthis occurred inside Delhi.

I was a bit shocked when I read that Delhi’s Hindutvu thugs were holding swords because it matched the description I found in my lucid dream. I strongly feel that there is something very severe going on inside Kashmir and that the world needs to open their eyes to the crisis that is enfolding there. Perhaps, what is happening inside Kashmir is far worse than what is taking place inside Delhi because Kashmir was placed under a severe and lengthy lockdown (article 1, article 2).

Here are some more relevant articles about Kashmir. I feel that there is less and disproportionate coverage of what is going on inside this region.

Bodyguarding: Using Video Game Mode To Figure Things Out About India

Note: I have never been to India although I strongly believe that I saw India in this dream. Here I am discussing one political move that I was not aware of until I had this dream.

I was resting in the car with one of my female relatives. It was warm and sunny outside.  I got out of the car because I was getting bored. Before I left, I told my relative that I needed to go. I got out of the car and started walking on the grass. Behind me, very far away from me and almost at the horizon, there was a really large building that had many manicured lawns and fantastic gardens. It seemed to be made out of bricks; its color was beige-brown; and, I thought that it belonged to an academic institution. Perhaps the fact that it was a university was emphasized by a young male dream character who was riding a small bike that looked like a golf cart but did not had the roof and was half the size. I felt curious about where I was so I went near this person and poked him. When he noticed me, I asked, “What is this building behind me?” He seemed arrogant and did not want to wait to explain. So he kept driving away, looked back, and shouted, “Its Five!”

This guy drove ahead while I walked behind him since I did not knew where to go. As I followed him, I ended up in a more open space. I could see Modi, some members of his party, and people who belonged to the university including the students. Several booths were set up on both sides of the street; and, Modi’s team was busy distributing some flyers to them. The guy who was driving the small golf cart like vehicle kept driving and eventually disappeared in the crowd. I kept walking and came to a place where a fence was guarding a new building that was near a park of some sort. Many kids were playing in that area. I checked them out for a bit; and, then I climbed over the fence. On the other side of the fence, there was another door that led to a place that had elevated areas for people to sitthis place looked like an entrance to a subway or a staircase. This particular door was very beautiful. It had a circular design with bars made out of stone that protruded inside a hollow circle that was also made from stone. I pushed the door open and got inside. There was a young girl sitting at the window alcove. I asked her if she knew where a certain Human Rights Activist lives or where he is right now? She said that she does not know, which symbolizes how some of the younger generation is not well versed in real politics. Thus, I complained to her, “How come you don’t know him? He is really famous”.  Then I told  her that I will go and find him myself. So I kept looking around; got tired; and, kind of woke up. Then I fell asleep againI am a heavy sleeper.

This time the dream started in the middle of the night. I was near a place that had a gigantic wall next to bushes or trees. There was a guy ahead of me; and, he was climbing the wall pretty fast like a ninja. I saw him do this and felt intimidated because I have not flown in my dreams for some while. Even then I attempted to climb the wall and follow him. Suddenly, the Human Rights Activist I was trying to find earlier came flying towards me. I could see him clearly right now. He seemed like a real alive person. I think he noticed me and was about to say something to me. To my utter surprise and shock, the scene suddenly became violent. I think there was someone else in the trees besides the male who had just climbed over the wall. Maybe, there were two guys hiding thereI don’t know for sure. A guy who was dressed in black and whose face was concealed stabbed this Human Rights Activist. The activist fell down and almost fainted due to pain. I held him as he tried to communicate. Furthermore, I noticed that the stabber was a young man who actually felt bad about what he just did—he seemed confused. I wanted to get help so the scene shifted. I was now near a shop or an office; and, a dream character came out from this place as I held the activist and almost cried. I told this new dream character to immediately call 9/11. I talked to the activist and tried to comfort him. His shirt was now open; and, I could see the cut made by the knifethe cut was made somewhere just above or on the abdomen. His body was still warm and alive; and, he was still breathing. He was looking at me and was aware of me despite his poor condition. I held his hand and placed his head against my chest as I slowly talked to him. I felt horrible because I did not realize what had just happened and why. The night became darker as the rain gradually poured on us. How the rain just appears to change the atmosphere and temperature and how intense emotions show during this dream are indications of presence of my guardian angel. Read “11 Signs You’re Being Visited By Your Guardian Angel” and “Contacting Your Guardian Angel: Messages in Dreams” to learn more about guardian angels that visit people during their dreams.

I activated this dream by meditating on the video of this Human Rights Activist. I was able to initiate “Hypnagogic Hallucinations” pretty fast after this meditation, which is how I received this dream. During the dream, I became aware of the simulation mode I was running when I tried climbing the large wall. I climbed it too fast, which is why I felt that I was just playing a video game. According to article, “Do Video Games Improve Your Ability to Lucid Dream?” video games improve one’s ability to engage in lucid dreams.

This dream shares a political move that India’s Modi government is currently playing. Before I had this dream, I had an idea about how some activists were receiving death threats from certain figures including members of the India’s Internet Troll Army; I knew about how Hindutva thugs attacked the JMI university, which I thought was an incidence that just happens to involve a university; but, I did not knew about the fact that Modi’s government is building a culture of abuse and assassinations inside universities. I found out about this aforementioned fact after I woke up from this dream and googled for ideas by using concepts taught during this dream. Here is what I found while awake. Astounding!

If the BJP concludes that marginalising Muslims and waging a culture war against liberal elites is a winning strategy, there is more at stake than India’s universities. Source: “Narendra Modi’s culture war storms India’s elite universities

Since Mr. Modi became prime minister in 2014, the Hindu right’s battle for influence over young minds has intensified. Source: “Behind Campus Attack in India, Some See a Far-Right Agenda

In this dream, I connected with a dream character that was sitting on some sort of vehicle and driving it in the university’s lawn. Although he seemed to ignore me and chose not to talk to me, he led me to a place where I could see the booths that were set up by Modi’s team. Dream characters are very incredible entities that offer insight into things that one is not aware of or things that are about to happen in the future. It must be noted that this dream character helped me because I was not rude to him. Apparently, there is a way of talking to your dream characters; to learn more, read article “How to Talk to Dream Characters 101“. From experience, I have learned that it is best to just stick around with your dream characters; and, if they are based on real persons, then please do not show those people any kind of hatred or hostility.  I have learned from experience that if you were to stick around with your dream characters, then they actually evolve over time and become stronger. Read one of my experiences, “Dream Characters That Appear Suddenly To Warn“. The professor who appears in this dream is actually a much older dream character. He has grown older and wiser inside my head, which is how he is acting more aggressively as mentioned in the blog post, “Dream Characters That Appear Suddenly To Warn“.

It is possible to get precognitive dreams or to make profound conclusions by analyzing the data collectedI think this is one of those dreams that is supposed to change the course of history. Read “10 Dreams That Changed Human History“. I think that this dream is suggesting that if the current atmosphere of bullying that is sustained by Modi’s government continues, then even the wisest and the most well known Human Rights Activiststhe guy who met me in this dream is a very respected historic figure—will face extreme hardships and assassinations. I think we survived in this dream though! I am not sharing his name here because I do not want the bad guys to develop ideas about murdering him—this dream could be just a symbolic dream but you know how some dumb people work. However, I am still sharing this warning with concerned Human Rights Activists.

Why I Think White Helmets of Syria Are A Hoax

According to Wikipedia and Indie Wire, White Helmets are made up of around 3000 volunteers. See article “‘The White Helmets’: How the Stars Of Netflix’s Doc Are Making A Difference in Syria’s Civil War” and “White Helmets – (Syrian Civil War)“. According to Wikipedia, White Helmets operates in those parts of Syria and Turkey that are controlled by the opposition. But this area has millions of Syrians and it is not a small region at all. So why does this really large region has only around 3000 volunteers for the White Helmets? Think of things this way. Its war! Women, teenagers, and even seniors are going to attempt to find those who are injured. But, in the White Helmets’ footages we see mostly men conducting the rescue operations; also there are really less women who are participating, which is happening around the time when so many countries have females in their armies. Furthermore, I find it very fishy that they are receiving so much media attention and have won the Alternative Nobel Prize; it feels like things are happening too fast at their end. Are they target of good news and propaganda because we are looking at fake news being portrayed by two parties that appear to be at opposite ends (foes)? Lastly, White Helmets has received lots of funds from America and only recently America is thinking of withdrawing their funds. But, America also created the Taliban. You know what I mean! Read article “Why Did U.S Freeze White Helmets Funding? Syrian Search and Rescue Group Faces Cash Flow Crisis“.

Obviously, something is wrong here. Even if we were to ignore all the other facts and lies, the total number of White Helmets still does not make any sense.

Who exactly is failing us here? Why did a couple of people manage to change White Helmets into a very controversial issue? Even some reputable Western humanitarian organizations are struggling to make sense out of or backing the White Helmets! Where is the truth that people deserve to hear?

How To Get Out Of Nightmares

Ever since I heard of how India is forcibly making its way into the Kashmir region and that the Indian forces are abusing the Kashmiris, I have been receiving dreams of Kashmiri women being raped. I cannot really explain what I have been made to witness since some of this stuff is extremely disturbing!

In one dream, I saw some men surrounding a woman; then they put a really large sword-like thing in her mouth; and, then they took it out and then they put it in again. The female victim was unable to even scream due to fear. Then, in another dream, there were several women sitting in a large room. But, some men came and tried to rape them. I felt that someone touched me as well while I was dreaming. Perhaps, I was also sitting in that room. This is the cunning part about entering the subconscious and higher intelligence through dreams! You cannot always differentiate yourself from your dream characters.

Then, I remember getting very angry about all of this. Then, I just flew really high. I started flying first out of the room; and, then I got into the woods. The trees were very large. I learned how to throw a web just like Spider Man does. The web wounded itself around a tree and I swung over a couple of trees to get to that tree. I felt that some people were chasing me. Fear enveloped me so I started swinging very fast by using the spider web and trees. I experienced the sun blinding my eyes and I sensed the wilderness and nakedness of the large jungle. I kept swinging until I finally woke up.

So to get out of nightmares, you have to learn how to do something fun while escaping.

My Instincts Say “Nay”

By: Arzoo Zaheer a.k.a. Dot a.k.a. Fractal

Unknowingly, unwontedly, I stumbled upon a mighty foe
A bastard child of sheer ignorance and hatred, ye know
A monster that ruthlessly tears the frail fabric of the society
Fed lovingly by the mainstream media, prejudices, and false notoriety
An ideology lovingly propagated by popular culture of some
A chameleon that deceptively changes colors to become
A deceptive snake writing within naïve hearts and minds
A deceptive snake writhing within naïve hearts and minds

They boast that they are magically superior somehow
Race, culture, ethnicity, technology, and wealth, oh wow!
Their list of useless reasons just continues and is expanded upon
Implicitly and explicitly in attitude, lingo, education, and tone
A social construct it is, falsely believed to be a scientific one
A construct that brutally silences the meek and weak, my hun
Encouraging the feeble-minded to hostility and “sleep”
A different sort of a psychopath that regularly brutalizes the weak

You foolish Racist! Remember the “Roots”
“Roots” of the past, tomorrow and of forever
“Roots” that intertwine like those of the tree
Holding strongly to give life and strength to the “free”
Oh, why your inner disease infects the “Roots” of the trees?
Leading to unwanted infection and decay of their A B Cs
And eventually, among us, a noiseless sound echos
As the tree falls to the ground—a silent pathos

A blackened heart
A broken heart
Some blackened hearts
Some broken hearts
Countless blackened hearts
Countless broken hearts
Now, oh racist, do you see?
Do you see, or are you still blind?

Ridicules so casually thrown at a person by a person
“Why are you living here? Go back to your country, you bison”
Ridicules sung in foreign languages by old ladies on the sidewalks
Harassments so casually tolerated by the “colored”; thoughts that stalk
Legal decisions carefully and pointlessly drafted on termination papers
“Unfortunately, the contract has ended because of such and such”

Huh! Decisions are Silent Derisions

Racial profiling and media propaganda eventually turns into
A war machine maniacally designed for genocide, just to subdue

“Social colonialism” gradually colonizes the “Others”
As the “dominant ones” foolishly marginalize their own brothers
Creating societal power differences within this so-called “democracy”
Creating socioeconomic disparities, disabling “minorities”, such hypocrisy
Senselessly creating “poverty” despite beautifully rich “diversity”
Marginalizing “Others” to the extent of retardation, oh a perversity

The “perpetrators” have no skin, they have no skin
The “perpetrators” have no skin, they have no skin
“They” took my voice, so I spoke with pen, paper and ink
“They” took my voice, so I spoke with pen, paper and ink

How “One World Film Festival” Raises Awareness About Global Issues

Canadian youth and adults are challenged by a fast-paced system and a politically charged environment where many are aware about the need to promote awareness of relevant international and local issues. A film festival like One World Film Festival (OWFF) thus plays a pivotal role in shaping opinion by empowering citizens. People who are dwelling on Planet Earth in today’s world are pressured to absorb information fast, which is how the new generation is being shaped to work and think more quickly by retrieving data from various stimuli and resources.

One of the very first films that I watched—in grade 11, I think—to learn about issues surrounding mental and physical health was Tennessee William’s “The Glass Menagerie”. This fiction movie shares the story of Laura Wingfield, her brother Tom Wingfield, and their mother Amanda Wingfield. What struck me as stunning about this movie was the fact that Laura limped and was also mentally fragile; and, the use of a glass menagerie to symbolize Laura’s refuge in her imaginary world as well as her sensitive memory. I remember feeling very moved after watching this picture; and, I promised myself to keep learning through such expressive broadcasts. As I grew older, I became more familiar with the world around me; and, finally found a festival that helped me fulfill the promise I had made many years ago.

One World Film Festival (OWFF) is Ottawa’s longest-running documentary film festival that seeks to use media and performing arts to educate people about several global issues including women empowerment, identity, migration, indigenous rights, social justice, human rights, and environmental issues—specifically, it connects marginalized communities and Third World population with Canadians. Its a very historic event! Its interesting to see how One World Film Festival’s poster has changed over time. See Past Festivals – 1989 to 2016.

Nowadays, people have access to many learning platforms including social media, open learning services, and free libraries. So why would someone want to spend their money to watch films? My experiences with the world of movies have taught me that motion pictures teach faster because they offer multi-sensory and collective experiences where one may feel one’s emotions as well as those of the audience and movie characters; learning can be completed in an incognito and relaxed environment; and, it becomes possible to focus on multiple issues and literary techniques and not just one or two. Now imagine going to the One World Film Festival (OWFF) and being bombarded by many educational pictures!

Come join this memorable adventure! One World Film Festival (OWFF) is coming to Ottawa again this year. Don’t forget to support their 30th Anniversary by donating to their crowdfunding campaign. Hurry Up! Campaign ends on June 2nd—they have only 7 days left to raise funds.

Should Foreigners Or Colored People Choose Canada for Stay or Business?

Canada uses a lot of money from foreigners. They bring wealthy foreigners here under false promises of a great future; and, they also make them invest in Canadian products and services. Reality is that even I was brought here through cunning marketing schemes that sold Canada to my family by telling us that we will have a great life there. But, I have been abused so many times over 20 years. Unbelievable!

Canadian system is a COMPLETE FAIL. A lot of Canadians I have come across fail to document severe abuse that is taking place inside academic organizations and workplaces; instead they only notice the abusers’ titles before they help the abusers throw the victim(s) out of the office—this experience is similar to murdering or raping someone. Some Canadians, especially White people, are extremely abusive; and, they talk like they own the entire planet although they are very ignorant of other cultures. I was stunned when I read that Vancouver’s Real Estate is being run by the Chinese. I was surprised when I heard this because I have been observing how Chinese people are being mistreated inside Canada. One thing that I have seen about some White people is that they raid you with their abusive and pushy behavior; wait for your feelings and emotions to get all tied up; and, then laugh at you further or contort you further when your words or behaviour don’t come out so well. Actually, this is the type of joke that is being played over and over again. A Chinese friend of mine was mistreated by a senior professional who belonged to the Events Industry; thus, I felt forced to note this here; there have also been discussions by reliable individuals about the severe abuse Chinese employees are facing in the Events industry; and, then there is this article titled “‘Widespread’ workplace abuse persists for Chinese restaurant workers”. I am sure that this kind of abuse is common towards coloured people; and, that even some coloured people also abuse other coloured individuals this way because doing so helps them fit into some existing lens! This is because some people are being sanitized to work a certain way. See this movie about how some Canadians obtain sexual consent. You will see what I mean by “being conditioned a certain way”. All this abuse is a group thing! This kind of hoax is pulled at unsuspecting foreigners on routine basis. For example, when I got here from Pakistan, I used to think that every race make up just one unit simply because racism is not taught in Islam—did Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him) propagate this message because he knew that racism causes mental illnesses? But, in Canada I was taught the concept of  racism and how White people are better than other races. This idea was slowly and painstakingly drilled into my head by Canadians—this is an example of mental and emotional abuse that occurs daily in Canada.

Canada needs to make up her mind! They need to either stop calling foreigners to their country; or they need to learn and respect their culture. I am using “they” to refer to those Canadians who are choosing to abuse and discriminate against colored people—know that Canada is one of the most racist countries in the world where many colored people are just hiding their personal ordeals. For example, Shreya Samanat points out in her article “Top 12 Most Racist Countries in the World” that US is one of the most racist country in the world; Shreya somehow fails to mention Canada, which I believe is due to lack of reported data; but, Scott Gilmore points out in the article “Canada’s race problem? It’s even worse than America’s” that Canada’s racism problem is far worse than America’s.

Thus, I am doing all of this on my own. I know that the Canadian mainstream media is not going to cover these issues simply because Canadian media is made up mostly White people; and, Canada is a very colour-coded and racist country. I have no clue what kind of people are living in this country! I personally don’t have a strong feeling of belonging even if I have some great friends; I am forced to navigate through my career by making a list of people (abusers/bullies) with whom I should never connect. I feel stranded in Canada; and, I cannot sleep so well knowing that I live next to animals. I have learned over time that they only take our money and resources; and, then leave us at some psychiatrist’s office or on the streets.
