Strongly condemn those morons in Lahore who were involved in attacks on our Christian friends

Strongly condemn those morons in Badami Bagh Lahore who were involved in attacks on our Christian friends. These people only bring disgrace to Islam and its followers.

People have the right to exercise their religion especially when Quran has given us clear directions about freedom of religion and justice.

“There is no compulsion in religion” (Al-baqarah, 256)

“O ye who believe! Be steadfast witnesses for Allah in equity, and let not hatred of any people seduce you that ye deal not justly. Deal justly, that is nearer to your duty. Observe your duty to Allah. Lo! Allah is Informed of what ye do.” [Al-maeda ,8]

It seems these mobs are often backed by land grabbers or other mafias who create such situation to drive away these poor people using blasphemy.On many occasions, Muslims become the victim of other Muslims accusing them of blasphemy to settle business, personal, sectarian or other rivalries.Those who use blasphemy thing for their political or economic favors should be charged with blasphemy. what bigger blasphemy can it be than using the name of Deen to benefit their Dukaan.

At least this moron should be punished easily

At least this moron should be punished easily

If they think they are serving Islam then the should think that non-Muslim citizens in an Islamic (at least by name Pakistan is Islamic) are protected minority and harming them is a serious crime and sin.

Bukhari :: Book 4 :: Volume 53 :: Hadith 391

Narrated ‘Abdullah bin ‘Amr:

The Prophet (S.A.W) said, “Whoever killed a person having a treaty with the Muslims, shall not smell the smell of Paradise though its smell is perceived from a distance of forty years.”

It seems all this anger is not just about a rubbish movie

It seems many people have found their way of releasing frustration, from this fake war, unemployment, electricity crisis, corruption and many many other issues, by damaging public and private property in the name of their love of Prophet (S.A.W). If these idiots want to show their anger on other issues then they should not use the name of Islam of Prophet (S.A.W) and if it is about Islam then this type of violence, attacks on embassies/diplomats and damage to civilian property is not taught by Islam.

Attacks on ambassadors and diplomats are not allowed. Even the ambassadors of worst enemies of Prophet (S.A.W) were not harmed by Prophet (S.A.W) or Sahaba (R.A). What sort of love of Prophet (S.A.W) that people are clearly violating his teachings in the name of the religion he preached. If people have issues with war or foreign policies then they shouldn’t do it at least in the name of religion or the love of Prophet (S.A.W). Even in the war case, Islam doesn’t allow attacks on diplomats.

It seems all this anger is not just about a rubbish movie but the movie has worked like a spark to ignite the fuel. We should not let these morons who made such films to do things which are against Islam and the teachings of Prophet (S.A.W) and that too in the name of Islam.

Recent reports of violence from all over the Muslims world and today in Pakistan on the day of Yaum e Ishq e Rasool (S.A.W) are not very helpful in spreading the right message of Islam. The way people are protesting, it seems they are more interested in looting and plundering the wealth of others than showing any love for the Prophet (S.A.W). I condemn such violence in the name of religion especially in the name of a religion which doesn’t allow such actions.

Some positive development in Rimshah Masih Case–> Pakistani religious leaders coming forward to support her

August 28, 2012 4 comments

A good surprising situation has emerged out of the disturbing case of Rimshah Masih that finally religious leaders in Pakistan have come forward to support the poor girl in her case. Below is the news item from Guardian discussing the case:

—————————————————————————————————
Pakistani Muslim leaders support Christian girl accused of blasphemy

Unprecedented move comes after 11-year-old thought to have Down’s syndrome charged with desecrating the Qur’an

Islamic leaders in Pakistan on Monday came out in support of a Christian girl with learning difficulties who is being held in prison, in an unprecedented public denunciation of the blasphemy law by hard-line mullahs.

The All Pakistan Ulema Council, an umbrella group of Muslim clerics and scholars, which includes representatives from fundamentalist groups, joined hands with the Pakistan Interfaith League, which includes Christians, Sikhs and other religions, to call for justice for the girl, Rimsha, who is accused of blasphemy. They also demanded that those making false allegations be punished.

Think before its too late (again)

Ever wondered why Bengalis who played a leading role in the creation of Pakistan took a separate path? Try and see why the people of Waziristan who made Azad Kashmir possible are now fighting against the state or why Balochis who chose Pakistan are now feeling dissatisfaction with the country then you will find some answers. I believe an assessment without any prejudice or nationalism will reveal that its not them who were or are at the wrong end.

It seems that words like treason, blasphemy or crime itself are reserved for weak and oppressed. The ones who often don’t follow the herd become eligible of being called as deviants or misguided. It is a shame that those sitting in the highest echelons of power or so called highest levels of political or religious orders have attained the right to determine right and wrong with an absolute sense of being the bearer of truth despite selling their souls many times to their lust for power and wealth. People digest the destruction of several villages or towns just because someone from them said that he doesn’t accept the system which has enslaved them. But don’t bother to ask those who execute the punishment that how many times they have violated the oath they take to protect the constitution? How many times they have attacked our freedom? How many times they have allowed their land to be used as a base for invading others and our own country? Blind people still follow these so called men of power and honor and call their blind following as Nationalism, Patriotism or Loyalty to the Land or Nation. Many of those who don’t follow these rhetoric are victims of their sectarian and social class prejudices and yet they are known as liberals. So called pious and religious have considered the meanings of being religious as being invaders of others privacy and freedom. No doubt we are in a mess and going deeper into it daily.

Attitude towards the people of Pashtoon areas during Eid times is another classic example and then we expect them to be patriotic. People don’t accept their Eid (right or wrong, for me its not important than respecting their decision for their-selves), they are being killed because they don’t fit to international plans, drones are allowed to bomb them just because they are different in culture or customs or sects, many don’t want them as so called usual participants in the makeup of our societies then why the heck it is necessary to keep them forcefully as a part of our country when they are so undesirable. Let the separation be done for good. Borders or contracts or NICs are not important as compared to respect, freedom, justice and equal status as human beings.

Even the term terrorist has different meanings here in Pakistan. Term “terrorists”, in war on terror in Pakistan, expanded from Al-quaida members to Alqaida+Talibans, then it moved to tribesmen and later to Pashtoons. It then turned sectarian and their whole sects were termed terrorists and then anyone who opposed this war was labeled with this term either as terrorists or supporter of terrorism. A new dictionary meaning has been given to the term based on sect, ethnicity, customs or way of life. The interesting part is that those who were defining terrorism were involved, as executives or supporters, in the bombing of civilian population or violations of human rights.

Pakistan lost its eastern part just after 24 years of freedom and now it is again facing a critical situation. We need to think where we are and where we want to go ahead and how we want to go ahead before its too late (again).

We support Rimshah Masih and demand changing or repealing blasphemy laws in Pakistan which are a real insult to Islam

August 26, 2012 6 comments

There are disturbing reports from Pakistan that an 11 years old Rimshah Masih, possibly suffering from Down syndrome is being accused of blasphemy. Blasphemy laws in Pakistan seem to have bring more insult to Islam than the people they wrongly or unreasonably accused for blasphemy.

They seem to be some criminal minded morons who accused an eleven years old Christian girl for a so called crime, she might not be aware off doing. A serious revision of these laws is required on the basis of Quran and Sunnah for revision or repealing these laws which have brought shame for Muslims.

Also those who are using this laws for their evil motives should be brought to justice as well.

People have the right to exercise their religion especially when Quran has given us clear directions about freedom of religion and justice.

“There is no compulsion in religion” (Al-baqarah, 256)

“O ye who believe! Be steadfast witnesses for Allah in equity, and let not hatred of any people seduce you that ye deal not justly. Deal justly, that is nearer to your duty. Observe your duty to Allah. Lo! Allah is Informed of what ye do.” [Al-maeda ,8]

But it seems emotions have taken over the teachings of Quran and Sunnah. Our Prophet (S.A.W) showed kindness to his worst enemies and even cared about the well being of an old lady who used to throw garbage at him.

We support Rimshah Masih and demand changing or repealing blasphemy laws in Pakistan.

Forced Conversion News–>Further Development

Few days ago I shared a news from UN website regarding forced conversion. Here is the other side of the story. Case is in Sind High Court, hopefully there will be a fair decision

Forced conversion’: Teen insists she converted of own free will

by Sarfaraz Memon (Express Tribune)

SUKKUR: Faryal Shah (Rinkle Kumari) appeared before the media on Thursday and made it clear that she had not been kidnapped and had not been forced to convert to Islam and marry Naveed Shah.

Faryal said that she had converted to Islam and had married Naveed Shah of her own free will, and that nobody had pressurised her into this. Reading out the Kalma-e-Tayyaba, Faryal said she was a Muslim girl and therefore had nothing to do with her parents.

Faryal (Rinkle Kumari) and her husband Naveed Shah were produced in front of the Sindh High Court (SHC) Sukker bench on Thursday morning amid tight security.

The couple was escorted by SSP Ghotki Pir Mohammad Shah along with a heavy contingent of police. Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) MNA Mian Abdul Haq of Bharchoondi Sharif, his son Mian Mohammad Aslam and a large number of their followers were also present.

The couple through their lawyer, Achar Gabole, had filed a constitutional petition stating that their lives were under threat from the relatives of the girl, who had been issuing threats of dire consequences.

Answering a question on threats to their lives, she said, “Our lives are under threat from my maternal uncle Raj Kumar”. She once again made it clear that she was a Muslim and wanted to live with her husband Naveed Shah.

Advocate Mohammad Murad Lund, who was representing Faryal’s grandfather Manohar Lal, told The Express Tribune that the single bench comprising of Justice Ahmed Ali Shaikh without recording the statement of the girl had ordered SSP Ghotki to provide protection to the couple and ensure that they are produced before the SHC chief justice in Karachi on March 12.

Advocate Mohammad Murad Lund kept on insisting that, the girl was under pressure due to the presence of a large number of Bharchoondi Sharif followers. He said everything will become “crystal clear” in Karachi, as the girl would be able to record her statement in a tension free atmosphere.

Mian Mohammad Aslam of Bharchoondi Sharif said that everyone had seen that Faryal was neither under pressure and had not said a word against the Pirs. “Rather she gave a statement against her own maternal uncle who is threatening to kill her.”

He said his father, PPP MNA Mian Abdul Haq had also come to the court because the girl’s parents had requested that they wanted to meet their daughter, but they didn’t come to see her.

Aslam said when the couple had come to Dargah Bharchoondi Sharif on February 24, Faryal had spoken to her parents on his instructions and had told them that she had come there to convert to Islam and marry Naveed Shah.

“I personally requested them to come over and meet their daughter to see for themselves that she was not under pressure, but they didn’t’ come,” Mian Aslam said.

He once again said that neither Islam nor the law of the land allowed forced conversion.

A disturbing news on forced conversion—>Sind girl forced to convert and marry the kidnapper

February 28, 2012 Leave a comment

This seems really pathetic. there is no room for these type of actions neither in constitution nor in Islam. forceful conversion is not allowed and directly against Quran. I think human rights organizations especially some of rich or political class hindu community member can raise the issue in high court or supreme court or  even in Sharia Court as it is a direct violation of Islamic law as well. Only conversion allowed is voluntary conversion by heart. Also I believe Islamic organizations can help in this as it is a direct insult and misuse of Islam.

The incident is of Sind. I believe there are four major crimes on which Pakistan Civil Society and Courts should look at :
1) Abduction of a minor girl
2) Forced Conversion
3) Marriage and perhaps Forced Sex (Rape)
4) Misuse of Islam and damaging Islam’s image
I hope some action will be  taken by Civil Society, Religious  and Political Parties, Media and Courts.

PAKISTAN: Abducted and forced into a Muslim marriage(IRIN ASIA)
KARACHI, 27 February 2012 (IRIN) – Sixteen-year-old Ameena Ahmed*, now living in the town of Rahim Yar Khan in Pakistan’s Punjab Province, does not always respond when her mother-in-law calls out to her.
“Even after a year of `marriage’ I am not used to my new name. I was called Radha before,” she told IRIN on a rare occasion when she was allowed to go to the corner shop on her own to buy vegetables.
Ameena, or Radha as she still calls herself, was abducted from Karachi about 13 months ago by a group of young men who offered her ice-cream and a ride in their car. Before she knew what was happening, she was dragged into a larger van, and driven to an area she did not know.
She was then pressured into signing forms which she later found meant she was married to Ahmed Salim, 25; she was converted to a Muslim after being asked to recite some verses in front of a cleric. She was obliged to wear a veil. Seven months ago, Ameena, who has not seen her parents or three siblings since then and “misses them a lot”, moved with her new family to southern Punjab.
“The abduction and kidnapping of Hindu girls is becoming more and more common,” Amarnath Motumal, a lawyer and leader of Karachi’s Hindu community, told IRIN. “This trend has been growing over the past four or five years, and it is getting worse day by day.”
He said there were at least 15-20 forced abductions and conversions of young girls from Karachi each month, mainly from the multi-ethnic Lyari area. The fact that more and more people were moving to Karachi from the interior of Sindh Province added to the dangers, as there were now more Hindus in Karachi, he said.
“They come to search for better schooling, for work and to escape growing extremism,” said Motumal who believes Muslim religious schools are involved in the conversion business.
“Hindus are non-believers. They believe in many gods, not one, and are heretics. So they should be converted,” said Abdul Mannan, 20, a Muslim student. He said he would be willing to marry a Hindu girl, if asked to by his teachers, “because conversions brought big rewards from Allah [God]. But later I will marry a `real’ Muslim girl as my second wife,” he said.
According to local law, a Muslim man can take more than one wife, but rights activists argue that the law infringes the rights of women and needs to be altered.
Motumal says Hindu organizations are concerned only with the “forced conversion” of girls under 18. “Adult women are of course free to choose,” he said.
“Lured away”
Sunil Sushmt, 40, who lives in a village close to the city of Mirpurkhas in central Sindh Province, said his 14-year-old daughter was “lured away” by an older neighbour and, her parents believe, forcibly converted after marriage to a Muslim. “She was a child. What choice did she have?” her father asked. He said her mother still cries for her “almost daily” a year after the event.
Sushmat is also concerned about how his daughter is being treated. “We know many converts are treated like slaves, not wives,” he said.
According to official figures, Hindus based mainly in Sindh make up 2 percent of Pakistan’s total population of 165 million. “We believe this figure could be higher,” Motumal said.
According to media reports, a growing number of Hindus have been fleeing Pakistan, mainly for neighbouring India. The kidnapping of girls and other forms of persecution is a factor in this, according to those who have decided not to stay in the country any longer.
“My family has lived in Sindh for generations,” Parvati Devi, 70, told IRIN. “But now I worry for the future of my granddaughters and their children. Maybe we too should leave,” she said. “The entire family is seriously considering this.”

Intolerance and current mess:A note on Salman Taseer Murder

January 6, 2011 9 comments

Recent murder of former Punjab Governor, Salman Taseer has left many things for us to think over. I really disagree with Salman Taseer,his politics and many other things especially of exploiting the blasphemy issue for political gain. But the issue for which he was killed is of academic and legal nature and there was no reason for anyone to kill him for this reason. This really shows the absence of Rule of Law in our country and also it shows the flaws in training of our security forces as the person(Mumtaz Qadri) who killed him was part of Punjab Police.

Apart from intolerance another issue for me is that our establishment can use the current situation to take out those whom they disagree with, whether they belong to this or that side of the issue. 

Rememeber its the policy of establishment ,to use sectarian and social class differences to expand the war for dollars, which has also contributed to the current mess.

The ideas which were floated to expand the war, especially in last 3-4 years, are really destroying our social fabric. We always had differences and diversity in terms of religion, sects and social classes but things were not that bad as today.

Sectarianism converted into sectarian violence from the time of Iranian revolution as attempts were made to replicate the revolution which many saw as sectarian based revolution. Later Afghan war, flow of weapons and boneless policy making added to the fuel. Iran-Iraq conflict and Arab-Iran tension also made the situation worse.

But even after that things were not that bad as today and even in 90s we were not that intolerant as a society. Current mess is a result of the unwanted dollar war we are fighting.

Not only Pakistan jumped into a foreign war but Pakistani establishment floated ridiculous ideas in masses to use sects against sects , ethnicities against ethnicities and social classes against social classes.

The thing is that people who were supported by the establishment to take forward the war on terror against Taliban are now among those who are also or mainly supporting the act of Mumtaz Qadri. Also now a false sense unity is being promoted in different sects on the basis of the issue, which has nothing to do with the teaching of Quran and Sunnah, to start another clash between social classes.

Quran even teaches us to be reasonable and “Just” with those who are involved in doing bad with us or who don’t agree with us but are peaceful with us.

Do not allow your hatred of a folk who  stopped your going to the Inviolable Place of Worship seduce you to transgress; but help ye one another unto righteousness and pious duty.  Help not one another unto sin and transgression, but keep your duty to God(5:2)

God does not forbid you to be kind to those who do not take arms against you.  God loves those who are just (60:8)

There is no compulsion in religion” (2:256)

Had God willed, they had not been idolatrous.  We have not set thee as a keeper over them, nor art thou responsible for them” (6:107)

Using Wahabis and Sufis against each other, Liberals and Mullahs against each other or invoking Deobandi/Barelwi  and Shia/Sunni clashes to serve the “Divide and Rule” policy or to introduce the bogus concepts of “Pakistani Brand of Islam” in line with the wishes and  ideals of establishment and their foreign masters can only result in destruction of our country.

Ideas like fight against Takfeeris especially to justify Lal Masjid Operation and Swat Operations, fight against Yazidis, fight against people who don’t believe in Prophet (S.A.W) according to the standards they have set or spreading things like Mullah Umar’s one eye is the eye of Dajjal or spreading fake ideas like Ghazwa e Hind (To glorify the role of Pakistan Army and the dollar wars they fight) which are not part of any authentic teachings of Islam, all have contributed to this disastrous situation.

I mean it’s a real big mess we are into and it will take real honest and just approach to get out of this. We are in a real self destruction mode and we have to come out of it.

Blasphemy Laws : No point scoring but a legal and academic debate to resolve the issue

January 4, 2011 6 comments

Recent heated debate over Blasphemy laws is getting worse day by day and now the issue has gone to the level of insanity and now people are using it to score political points.

The issue got worse when instead of taking the issue in parliament or Islamic ideological council , the issue is politicized for point scoring left/right politics or liberal/mullah politics. Now its high time for religious scholars, law experts and human rights experts to sit together and resolve the issue by doing a constructive legal and academic debate. We have a very basic principle in Quran :

“O ye who believe! Be steadfast witnesses for Allah in equity, and let not hatred of any people seduce you that ye deal not justly. Deal justly, that is nearer to your duty. Observe your duty to Allah. Lo! Allah is Informed of what ye do.” [Al-maeda ,8]

The biggest blasphemy that can be done is to introduce things in the name of Allah and Prophet (S.A.W) which are not part of their teachings.

We need to improve Qazaf laws for false witness, law of witness itself, importance of personal testimony, procedure of implementation and also we need to see whether this law can be implemented on minorities or not. According to fiqh Hanafi the dominating fiqh , the law cannot be implemented on Zimmi or non muslims under the responsibility of an Islamic State. Even for majority muslim population we need to see what punishment is there according to Quran and Sunnah or social circumstances of the alleged person should be considered during the case like the punishment for Zina or adultery committed by muslim with backward or uneducated social background is half as compared to other muslims and also we need to see if apology in such cases can work. Current procedure is a legacy of colonial era where there is no consideration of alleged person’s s social background is given or law is applied in a real centralized manner.

We also need to see what is meant by Blasphemy? I have seen muslims being persecuted for this law just because of them having a different point of view on 12 Rabiulawwal and Waseela issue.

We neither want a Pastor Terry Jones type situation which can start a civil war in the country nor we should make it a holocaust issue on which even debate is not allowed in many countries including those who call themselves civilized.

The problem is that we are in a war mode and stuck in an unwanted war which has destroyed or social fabric and everyone is in hyper state to protect their ways and level of sanity has gone down. The policy of using sectarianism as a tool by establishment and foreign masters for expanding war has also contributed in this.

If we claim to be muslims and call our state an Islamic state then basic principles of justice and equality which were part of the first Islamic state of Madina and also part of Meesaq e Madina should be kept in mind.

The beat of change makes me proud–> A note on independence day of Pakistan.

The beat of change makes me proud–> A note on independence day of Pakistan.
Recent incidents of Gojra,Muridkai and some other parts made me sad and made me to think about whether this is the Pakistan we need?
The incidents were a result of mobs irrational behavior towards blasphemy concept and the exploitation of these emotions by some freaks who call themselves
ulemas.
Also the news that missing Pakistanis are still missing and the government is doing nothing for them, Dr. Afia is still having a miserable time in US jails and courts, electricity is still a problem of our country even in the 21st century nuclear state, jialas are plundering the money and name the problem and you will find it
there in our country.
Our forces are still fighting a foreign war imposed on us by the former dictator who is still free and enjoying his days in europe, just for Dollars! And nothing is done to give justice to those who died in the name of this war against humanity and Pakistan.
So what’s the point? Are we dead as a nation or incapable of solving the problems? Is this the country our ancestors struggled for?
I some times get really irritated and in some way frustrated by the present situation but in between this I heard some real good news which brought hope in me.
The days like 31st July 2009, on which the Supreme Court ( the true one restored by the people of Pakistan on 16th March 2009 after a long and hard struggle ) of Pakistan declared the actions of the former dictator and tyrant Pervaiz Musharraf on 3rd November 2007 as unconstitutional and illegal and proved the dictator as a traitor and also declared PCO and PCO judges as illegal with their decisions including NRO as ineffective.
This decision is important for me as I also was and still a big supporter for the movements for independent judicial system in Pakistan as this is the only way we can keep ourselves together.
I remember the last year long march of June 2008 (as I was a part of that) and how peopel from every corner of the country, every walk of life, every ethnic identity of the country, every sect, every religious presence in the country took part in a movement to save Pakistan. The movement saw it’s ups and downs, saw the killings of innocent people by establishment and dictator supported parties on 12 May 2007 and 9 April 2008 but it kept it’s pace despite all hardships and finally achieved it’s big milestones.
I still say milestones because the path to achieve SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC JUSTICE and COMPLETE JUDICIAL INDEPENDENCE is still long and hard but the big positive is that we are on that track, the change is coming and I am really proud of that.
Therefore I dedicate this day to the people who supported and participated in the cause of independent judiciary , the cause of saving Pakistan.

Therefore I dedicate this day to the people who supported and participated in the cause of independent

judiciary , the cause of saving Pakistan.

In the end I would like to share a quote of Quaid e Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah:

“As you know, history shows that in England conditions, some time ago, were much worse than those prevailing in India today. The Roman Catholics and the Protestants persecuted each other. Even now there are some States in existence where there are discriminations made and bars imposed against a particular class. Thank God, we are not starting in those days. We are starting in the days when there is no discrimination, no distinction between one community and another, no discrimination between one caste or creed and another. We are starting with this fundamental principle that we are all citizens and equal citizens of one State.”

(Presidential Address to the Constituent Assembly of Pakistan on 11th August, 1947.)
