What Really Happened in the Congo: Belgium’s ‘Heart of Darkness’

Leopold famously said when he was forced to hand over the Congo Free State to the Belgian nation: “I will give them my Congo but they have no right to know what I have done there,” and proceeded to burn archives.

The Golden Temple (aka Harmandir Sahib or Darbar Sahib) is situated in Amristar, India and attracts Sikhs from not only all over India but also the entire world. The Golden Temple is the holiest shrine of the Sikh religion, and during the daily meal time an estimated 80,000 people receive free food. The Golden Temple is open not only to the Sikhs but people of all other religions. On average, 350,000-400,000 people visit the Golden Temple every day. On occasions like Amavasya, Sakranth, Diwali, Vaisakhi, and Guruparv, the turnout increases considerably. According to temple officials, around 1 to 1.5 million people visit the temple on these days. The Sikh religion, which emerged in the Punjab region about 500 years ago, rejects the social hierarchies of caste, a precept of Hinduism. The four entrance doors (North, East, South, West) of the Golden Temple signifies Sikhism’s acceptance of people of all walks of life regardless of caste, race, or religion. The principle of equality is enshrined in the langar, where everyone eats together sitting on the floor, regardless of social status. The Golden Temple’s dome is said to be gilded with 750 kilograms of pure gold.

“Gaza was bombarded with 273 airstrikes yesterday (8th July). That’s an average of 11 an hour. Gaza is about 25 miles long and 4 miles wide, with a population of 1.7 million crammed into that tiny space. It is under Israeli occupation and Israeli siege. Hospitals estimate they will run out of resources to treat the wounded in about two days. Electricity is intermittent. Gaza has no army, air force or navy. Israel is the fourth largest military power in the world. Resistance to occupation is allowed under international law. Israel’s occupation, siege and collective punishment of Gaza is not.”
