authorities in the West Bank confiscated all copies of his latest novel and issued an arrest warrant accusing him of including “sexual terms” in a provocative work that takes aim at taboo issues such as fanaticism religious extremism and homosexuality (Source: AP) Top News A young Palestinian author is stranded in Qatar after Palestinian authorities in the West Bank confiscated all copies of his latest novel and issued an arrest warrant for him accusing him of including “sexual terms” in a provocative work that takes aim at taboo issues such as fanaticism religious extremism and homosexuality The crackdown on 29-year-old Abbad Yahya has set off a wide public debate between the Palestinian society’s large conservative segment and the small liberal minority In a telephone interview Yahya told The Associated Press that he was visiting Doha when he learned of the ban and the arrest warrant published by the official governmental news agency He said he is now stuck in the Qatari capital fearing he would be arrested as soon as he returns home “I don’t know what to do If I go back I will be arrested and if I stay here I can’t stay far from my home and family” he said The novel “Crime in Ramallah” tracks the lives of three young Palestinian men who meet in the city which serves as the headquarters of the Palestinian government that rules in autonomous enclaves of the Israeli-occupied West Bank The youths work together in a bar where the murder of a young woman takes place One of the three a gay youth is arrested and interrogated about the crime Although he is cleared of any charges the officers realise he is gay and they beat and humiliate him He ends up moving to France looking for a society that accepts him The second man faces huge outrage from members of his conservative family after they learn that he works in a bar that serves alcohol which is banned by Islam Later in the book he turns into a religious extremist The third man is the boyfriend of the murdered woman He is haunted by the killing which he witnessed while remaining paralysed unsure whether he should chase the killer or try to save his dying girlfriend Unable to stand the torment any longer he ends up killing himself The scene is meant to symbolisethe Palestinian national movement which has failed to rescue the nation or deliver independence from Israel’s 50-year-old occupation “Like all societies in the region our society is seeing the growth of fanaticism and extremism and is reproducing social conservativism” Yahya said “These trends appear in the society in a mixture of religious and national slogans” The novel makes fun of Palestinian leaders and portrays them as losers It also includes some graphic sexual language that many see as unacceptable in this conservative society The criticism of the novel and its author has been widespread even among his colleagues Yahya “went too far in crossing the red lines of Palestinian society” said literature professor Adel Osta “The novel presented a bad image of the Palestinian Authority and it uses unfamiliar words which drove the Palestinian Authority to ban it” The head of the Palestinian Writers Union Murad Sudani harshly criticised the writer saying he wrote a “silly novel that violates the national and religious values of the society in order to appease the West and win prizes” “The job of the writer in our occupied country is to raise the hope and enlighten people not to break the national and religious symbols” Sudani added “My freedom as a writer ends when the freedom of the country begins” Yahya said that since the warrant was issued critics have started to threaten to harm him and his family “I don’t know what else they are going to do” he said Ghassan Khader a Palestinian Facebook user wrote on his page that Yahya “should be killed or arrested or deported” Another Facebook user Hussein Mihyar wrote on the page of the attorney general to praise the ban “This novel serves the Israeli occupation and destroys our young generation” Mihyar said The internationally backed Palestinian Authority has tightened its grip in the West Bank since losing control of the Gaza Strip to the Hamas militant group a decade ago It has occasionally arrested or harassed critics over comments posted on social media The uproar over Yahya’s book however has helped increase sales One bookshop owner in Ramallah said that he sold 10 copies of the novel in its first two months of release But on the day of the ban he sold 17 copies before police came and confiscated his remaining copies The book’s distributor Fuad Akleek said he was arrested at a bookshop “in a very humiliating way” He said police grabbed him and pushed him into a car without showing a warrant Akleek said he was held for six hours before the Palestinian culture minister Ehab Bsaiso intervened and arranged his release But he said police confiscated all remaining copies about 500 in bookstores and 500 in libraries across the West Bank Akleek said he was surprised by the rough treatment because there is no legal requirement for obtaining a permit in order to publish or distribute books in the West Bank “It is not a crime to distribute a book” he said “The one who judges a novel and author is the reader” Bsaiso the culture minister has also urged the attorney general to cancel the book ban and

easy for Arjun (Source: Arnab Dutta/Wikimedia Commons) Related News In the great epic Mahabharata Arjun one of the five Pandavas puts down his weapons and refuses to fight in the ongoing war He is filled with anguish at the sight of his loved ones the elders in particular for whom he has great affection The prospect of fighting the blameless and killing his kinsmen fills him with a strange pity ‘I shall not fight’ he declares leaving his charioteer Krishna dumbfounded read more Krishna reminds Arjun that this is no ordinary battlefield (Kurukshetra) it is also a moral field (Dharamkshetra) The war was waged as the last resort when all other alternatives had been exhausted Arjun is aware that his cause is just and yet he cannot transcend his human emotions Krishna tries several arguments to persuade Arjun to fight One of these is a truly novel moral argument based on action Krishna knows that Arjun is a man of action so he exhorts him to act for the sake of his duty without any thought to the consequences Krishna believes that the moral worth of an action lies in a persons motive rather than in the consequences of the action He speaks thus ‘Be intent on the action not on the fruits of action’ This moral insight is also called ‘nishkama karma’ or disinterested action Eknath Easwarana translates it as – “You have the right to work but never to the fruits of work” Krishna condemns ‘desire’ motivated acts as conducive to rebirth and believes that any action performed in ‘selfless spirit’ is virtuous and will not accumulate karma This infact is the basic premise of ‘nishkama karma’ Arjun is now caught between his svadharma (his duty as a kshatriya warrior which is to fight a ‘righteous war’) and sadharana dharma (the duty of his conscience which dissuades him from violence) It is a tragic dilemma (dharma sankat) indeed Krishna then reveals his awe inspiring aspect as God who is the creator and destroyer of the universe He leaves the choice with Arjun and asks him to make a reasoned decision based on what he has learned ‘Act as you choose’ says Krishna The experience of Krishna’s terrifying form makes Arjun realise that his duty is linked to cosmic power (Krishna’s divinity) And as long as he acts according to his duty he conforms to cosmic dharma This makes him an instrument of cosmic will rather than a doer (ego) Arjun reasons that he can act according to his duty and fulfill his moral commitment of fighting a just war to restore order (response) or he can wallow in emotions and think of his self-interest (reaction) He chooses response over reaction “I will do your bidding” says Arjun The concept of ‘nishkama karma’ has intrigued many a philosophers They have been trying to interpret ‘nishkama karma’ as a spiritual ideal for centuries However the thing to observe here is that ‘nish’ which means ‘without’ in Sanskrit ‘kama’ which means ‘desire’ ‘phala’ which means ‘fruit’ and ‘karma’ which means ‘action’ or ‘action performed without desire of its fruit’ (nishphala karma) does not accumulate karma Since it is done in selfless spirit of fulfilling one’s moral commitment rather than personal glory or blame Krishna says it will not incur debt This was Krishna’s promise to Arjun Share This Article Related Article The choice to detach himself from the consequence of his actions was not easy for Arjun But he is able to rise above his ego and be an instrument of divine will (‘Be just my instrument’ says Krishna) Having seen the awe inspiring aspect of God where in time grown old events have already happened according to divine will Arjun just needs to do his duty By attending to his duty single-mindedly without any thought to the consequence Arjun’s action is linked to Krishna’s divinity or cosmic power Arjun chose moral commitment over self-interest divinity over humanity liberation over bondage When we perform actions with desire for its fruit in mind we bind ourselves to the cycle of birth and rebirth The purpose of life is liberation or moksha Nishkama karma or detaching one’s actions from personal reward helps us to attain this purpose However in the final analysis the choice rests with us As long as the desire for rewards of our work matter to us as much as the work we are reborn for those rewards but when we perform only those acts that are incumbent on us we attain liberation For
