Did You Hear That?


As Muslims, we can at times be paranoid to a fault. Some of the best conspiracy theories are of our own design, but even a broken clock is right twice a day. Here is an article where the government has been using cellphones to listen in on people (only bad people, suspicious people, or people who could be potentially bad or suspicious). I'm not talking about the garden variety switcharoo, where one phone is switch for an exact duplicate. I am not even talking about a tap on cellphone line. I am talking about using the cellphone that you buy straight out of the box to listen to you. The doesn't even need to be on. Scary hah. It's not scary because anyone is doing something wrong, it is scary because your privacy can be invaded with warning or notification. All it takes is suspicion of suspicion, which means that all Muslim cellphones are being listened in on (the next conspiracy theory!).
