Bullying & my Civil/Religious Rights Violation!

Yet another despicable act by 2 bullies in the Suffern, NY Mosque Yet another illegal BAN letter issued to me in violation of my Civil and Religious Rights.  I’ve been associated with this Mosque for upwards of 10 years. The Mosque currently is being illegally occupied by one of the 2 bullies, Dr. Nadeem Qureshi, (a resident of Long Island NY) the owner of Tawwabeen Foundation and Paak Funeral Home A case in that regard is currently open against him in the Rockland County Supreme Court, Index No.: 34094/2014 before the Honorable Victor J. Alfieri. While majority of the community members are disturbed and disgusted with Dr. Qureshi and his sidekick Syed Babur Ali's Mafia-style control and operations of the Mosque, most of them are too nice/humble and/or scared to come forward against the 2 bullies.  I'm one of the few members who are vocal and speak out against them. This illegal management has issued several BAN letters over the years to many local members including 2 senior citizens and a minor, a then 17-year-old but none of them have had any legal value.  Once when these 2 bullies issued a BAN letter, our lawyer at the time issued a stern warning to the Suffern Police Chief Clark Osborn and to the Town of Suffern telling them this is an on-going Civil Matter and suggested for them to stay out of it or else action will be taken against them without further notice. This time around I thought the BAN letter would be the same, i.e. of no value.  Suffern PD, however, decided to give value to this illegal letter and told me not to come to the Mosque or else I will be arrested.  I understand why the Sergeant did it.  He was getting sick of being called in by the bully Syed Babur Ali so (supposedly) he reached out to the DA’s office which told him the Administration of the Mosque has the right to BAN anyone.  Well, that is BLATANTLY WRONG! This is a 501(c)(3) Not-for-Profit Organization and no one has the right to BAN anyone especially if there is NO criminal record/activity involved!  The Suffern PD and the DA’s office got it all WRONG and in this case, have unknowingly/unintentionally sided with the bully. I have never done anything against the law and/or have NEVER created any disturbance whatsoever at the Mosque. To the contrary, since I have been part of this community for over a decade and almost everyone knows me and my family, 99% of the time, it's a very friendly environment. I have never been involved in an argument with anyone except for one person, Syed Babur Ali, the so-called Treasurer of the Mosque who by his own admission has spent 90 days in Riker's Island Detention Center and has performed 120+ hours of Community Service in an elderly home.  He associated the ordeal with 9/11 and that his Jewish boss had him incarcerated by linking him to 9/11 terror-related activities.  We now know that was all fabricated.  He stole hundreds of thousands from his employer who filed charges of Grand Larceny for which he was picked up and placed in Riker's Island.  He took a plea deal under Perjury after serving 90 days in one of the worst prisons in our country.  In this regard, I have requested and written many times on Mosque's website requesting Mr. Ali to step down from the Treasurer position. I still stand by every word I have written except for the fact that at times, being emotional I wrote a few curse words to him which hindsight, I wish I had not as using foul language took away from the message I was relaying. I'm working on filing a Federal Lawsuit against the 2 bullies, Dr. Qureshi and Syed Babur Ali. For now, please sign my petition so I can take to the Suffern, NY Police Department and tell them the letter they decided to legitimize based on the input from DA’s office is a wrong act! Thanks and God Bless. Saad Haq.201.923.4859

Petition to Rt Hon Jacinda Ardern, Rt Hon Winston Peters, Hon Grant Robertson, Rt Hon Jacinda Adern, The Coalition Government

Change NZ Accounting Law

We the undersigned respectfully ask that Accounting Law changes be made to ensure that  Accountants/Chartered Accountants and Book Keepers take their role more seriously - whether their clients are private, large companies, small business owners. Sole Traders in particular need protection from financial exploitation, etc as do Special Needs clients. We do not think Clients should pay exorbitant fees for  what mainly boils down to excessive use of  data entry skills - where ten fingers get your books done faster than two.  On a daily basis we see too many businesses going into liquidation, receivership, etc. (Please refer to the NZ Herald's Public Notices section).  Behind every unsuccessful and successful business is an Accountant /Chartered Accountant and/or Book Keeper. Behind the loss of a business are stories  of being powerless to do anything, emotional pain which leads to depression, anxiety, PTSD, mental illness, drug and alcohol abuse, increase in car accidents, selfharm/ suicide attempts. (These are the psychological prices of losing a business).  And in desperate circumstances  -  ending ones life completely  (the psychological price of entrepreneurship). We are talking about Corporate Bullying of a different kind that has been missed by many or conveniently overlooked.  Reporting on a business's financial position often rather than once a year is important. There are huge variances in reporting, customer service, level of commitment to the job, etc.  Types of services vary as well.  An Accountant/Chartered Accountant/Book Keeper should explain their role properly and fully at the first point of contact - there should be no surprises further down the track. Charge out rates (like customer service,   services offered and reporting), etc are all over the place eg $45 per hour (reasonable) to $750 per hour (unreasonable)  just for having your bank reconciliation, profit and loss statements done. Accounting software or cloud based accounting platforms make completing the job more efficient and supposedly more cost effective for the client. There are in fact more variances in other areas including professional conduct, bias towards special needs clients, etc. There are professional accounting bodies like CAANZ (Chartered Accountants Australia New Zealand) but we have no concerns with them. It is Accounting Law  that needs to go further to address disparities and variances that have been apparent for a long time.  An Accountant/Chartered Accountant and Book Keeper has a responsible job. They are looking after other people's money, the Client's financial livelihood, a company's finances. Some Accountants/Chartered Accountants offer business support or mentoring in industries that they have no experience in and subsequently give the wrong advice resulting in disaster. The astute Accountants/Chartered Accountants/Book Keepers need to be separated from the ones who aren't.  More importantly the individual and business community deserve to be treated fairly and with dignity by their Accountant/Chartered Accountant and Book Keeper. Change NZ Accounting Law offers a solution. Thank you.  Please support Lisa Cowe's petition: Shut down insolvency watch.   If you or someone else you know can relate to any  points raised, please draw their attention to this petition and shared on your Facebook and/or Twitter page. We especially want to hear from business owners who have been through bankruptcy, liquidation processes, etc. If you need support, wish to discuss this petition with me, please contact  Fiona at 02108520271 or email: ADDENDUM We have received the following feedback:  "Accountants.  What could they do differently? A lot.  Helping Clients create 'Cashflow Positive' businesses would be a good start.  Educate Clients about their tax obligations.  Actually give business advice that suits the Client's business and goals.  Learn more about the real impact of insolvency so they can advise Clients - correctly.  Halve their fees and share knowledge with Clients .  Encourage Clients to grow their businesses to support their communities."  Ford WARNING: (1)  If an Accountant/Chartered Accountant/Book Keeper asks you to sign anything before they take you on as a Client we suggest (a) sign nothing. (2) Re:  End of Year Financials.  Do not sign a 'compilation report' until you have studied your 'End of Year Financials' carefully. Again, run this 'compilation report' by someone who understands at the least, the links between the balance sheet figures and those on the profit and loss account.  Be sure you understand what a balance sheet is and what it represents.  We suggest you attend bankruptcy cases at your local high court to gain further insights and to broaden your knowledge about our petition themes. Survive NZ Accounting Law. Here is some music to help you along.

Petition to Department of Education, Dr.Jerry Thacker, Mike Seger

reACT to Bullying

In June my local school district was in receipt of lyrics from a student’s Sound Cloud account. The lyrics were threatening in nature and included disturbing hate speech and many direct threats. The lyrics included the words “nigger, spics, homo, and retard”. There were songs about rape, beastiality, killing, and seeking revenge. In December I learned that our child, as well as 4 other students, were named specifically in a degrading and threatening manner. There was a song about our son named Ben the Retard. The school never informed the parents our children were specifically named and the child who produced these lyrics still attends the school.   If you sign this petition you are recognizing that at the heart of bullying is the school districts reaction to it. If they ignore and downplay bullying it will continue to thrive and grow, causing a climate of fear and making our schools unsafe. By signing this petition you are also saying to your school district you think they need to not only acknowledge incidences of bullying but they need to also reACT in a swift matter to protect our children. This petition is asking those in school administration to address shortfalls and to find solutions to the ongoing bullying problem including giving parents the confidence that they will not tolerate hate speech in any way or form. Our schools must show us that they are reACTing to each and every direct and indirect threat made to our children.Bullying policies mean nothing if no one reACTS  to them. If you sign the petition you are acknowledging this is a problem and your school district needs to be held accountable for the day to day safety of our children.  Our schools should be safe for all students. They should be places where everyone feels safe and free from harm.
