2012 is past; a year that witnessed many events and challenges, some of which had direct bearings on the Muslim World as well as Muslim communities and minorities around the globe.
Throughout 2012, Muslims in Myanmar were subject to blatant human rights violations and barbaric onslaughts. Gaza bravely withstood another Israeli bloody aggression. The Arab spring faced serious obstacles. Syrians brothers and sisters suffered the unspeakable oppression and atrocities at the hands of the lunatic Bashar Al-Asad.
