Wahabism & Sufism

4 Mar

Militant vs Non-violent Interpretation of Islam

Jamshed Iqbal

[blue]Wahabism, as an approach, mindset and lifestyle, has mutually supportive relation with illicit or corrupting power. Power serves it and, in return, it serves the power. In this way it is far older than its assumed father—Abdul Wahab Najdi.

When we try to know the world or Supreme Reality before knowing yourself, you would start hating others to love what is same. Therefore, Wahabism is not exclusively Islamic phenomenon. Those who have gone through Micheal Dibdin’s novel, Dead Lagoon, or have been wakeful watchmen over their ego-centers (raqeeb in Quranic terms) know well that “when you hate what you are not to love what you are”—you are, to far extent, exclusivists, or Wahabi in popular parlance.

In this way, universal Wahabism is product of commonsense or rock-logic, in other words. For, our common sense logic tells us that, “There can be no true friends without true enemies”. So, common rationality hunts or manufactures enemies to hate for facilitating and camouflaging the basest self-love under lofty and self-assumed divine ideals.

Our commonsense based families, societies and states are, in fact, factories to produce enemies. Therefore, every state in the world, based on enemy image, is a kind of Wahabi state and Yazid is the arch-devil in its service—Hussain (May Allah be pleased with him!), on the other hand, is an armless and harmless arch-angel—a living symbol of non-violent resistance.

Sufism or the non-violent interpretation of Islam on the contrary, is product of uncommon-sense. The enemy is within! The evil is within! Know thyself before knowing the world! If you tried to know others before knowing yourself; you would make a hell of heaven and heaven of hell!

Quran clearly states, “Know thyself, know thy Allah”. Self is the one big thing. The time you know it; you know all. On the other you know many things without knowing one big thing and you know nothing. Sufis, in the light of Quran, know themselves and know all. Wahabis or Zakir Naiks draw on a wide range of books and for them the world or truth cannot be boiled to a single idea and they miss all. For missing self, in the light of Quran, is missing Supreme Reality and missing Supreme Reality is missing all.

Why knowing one-self is more important than knowing all? The answer is simple. The phenomenal or external world is shadow (not in literal but metaphorical sense) of internal or noumenal world. In other words, “we see though ourselves”. For seeing the things clearly we must wipe our goggles. If our specs were transparent and stainless we could clearly see that, “we are humanity—we are life—life is sacred—everything is living—everything is sacred”.

By knowing ourselves and our Allah, the enemies disappear. The darkest fire of hatred extinguishes. We become an ocean—overflowing with nectar of immortality and love. But we are afraid of it!

We are afraid of love for love is a difficult realization. Love is slaughter for all ego-centers. Love demands dethroning ourselves from the center of our universe and placing “other” on the throne to make same. Love demands seeing the existence and all forms of life through the eyes of lover.

What would happen if we really love Mohammad (pbuh)? We would start seeing from his point of reference! What was his standpoint? Love!

Love is the divine point of reference and, in its essence; it is no point of reference at all. Because Allah, or Supreme Reality, is omnipresent and, it follows, is at once available on trillions of trillions or all possible points of references. Allah is not (nauzu billah) prisoner of singular or myopic point of reference.

It is hatred, commonsense or logic that entails the imprisonment of singular or exclusive point of reference. Love appears to be illogical for it drives us away from our shared blindness! And we love blindness for we are led by arch-blinds! And we are blind for we don’t know ourselves and try to know the world!

As universal phenomena, Wahabism has always waged war against love! To Wahabis, there is nothing more profane and blasphemous than love! Wahabis read Quran and its preamble before every surah—in the name of Allah the beneficent the most merciful—and they are neither beneficent nor merciful. Why? For their goggles are stained with blood of rage and hatred! So, whatever comes up are the cries of their badly injured egos!

They cannot understand Sufis’ metaphor of intimate love between human soul and Soul of the Souls (Allah) in Sufi literature and their hatred misinterprets it as blasphemous! They could not bow before the Will of the Wills (Allah) and, to deceive themselves, make gods of their own stuck-up selves. They bow down in slaughterhouse of false ego (masjid) and come out with their egos nourished. What an irony!

Theirs’ is a world where everything has been turned topsy-turvy by nafs (false ego). In their holier than thou kind of world you would see an ignoble “form” of every noble ideal or spirit.

They think that Islam is a question of knowing and rotting books. But, in fact, Islam and every rightly guided religion is a question of being! They cry that Islam is a way of talking but, in fact, it is a way of walking! They think that Islam is a divine excuse to hate others on sacred grounds. But, in reality, Islam teaches exactly what Mohammad (pbuh) did with a women who used to throw refuse on him. Islam teaches what Mohammad (pbuh) did with people of Taif. Because Islam or any true religion is the morality or lifestyle touched by the noblest emotion of love and compassion.

Who are recipients of the universal message of Islam? Sufis or those who believe only in militant piety? Who practice Islam? Those who have rotted books or those who dethroned their selves to make room for others? How many books were mugged up by Mohammad (pbuh)? Rotting books, especially in current info-tech era, is far—far easier than loving others! Locking verses and chapters in one’s memory is far easier than dethroning one’s self from the center of one’s universe and knowing one’s true self through stainless vision of soul! What abut teaching that art? Isn’t it even harder than making show of one’s memory?

I have tried to make clear that Wahabism takes birth with the painful awareness of the “other” and touches its heights when the plague of otherness becomes violently exclusive. When everything is washed but I, MY, ME! When there remains no room for thought, beauty, peace, harmony, love and justice—Wahabism cuddles up to rust and wear away the remaining traces of love.

However, I would once again repeat, that Wahabism is not altogether Islamic phenomenon. It is not a sect. It is a degenerative mindset. There are Wahabis in religions, politics, and even sciences in every part of the globe. But they are least in art. For art is intensified aesthetics or aesthetics intensified. And, therefore, Sufis or mystics were great artists as well. Loves sustains and creates but hatred bulldozes and demolishes! Quran says that Allah is sustainer, beautiful and loves beauty! So, only those who are blessed or are striving to cultivate beauty, harmony, peace and love could win the blessings of Allah. Rests have only words…but love is silent—heavens don’t speak!



Mosque attacked in Sri Lanka by Buddhist Mob

11 Aug

Colombo:10th Aug

Police intervene

A Buddhist mob has attacked a mosque in the Grandpass area of the Sri Lankan capital Colombo, leaving at least five people injured.

Buddhists and Muslims clashed after the attack, and police imposed a curfew in the area. Last month, a group of Buddhist monks had protested near the mosque, demanding it be relocated.In recent months hardline Buddhist groups have mounted a campaign against Muslim and Christian targets.Several houses were also damaged in Saturday’s clashes. Two of the injured were policemen guarding the mosque.A Muslim resident of the area said that a mob threw stones at the mosque when worshippers were performing evening prayers, the BBC’s Azzam Ameen reports from Colombo.The police and special task force commandos were dispatched to the area and have been able to bring the situation under control, a police spokesman told the BBC.

Buddhists monks had reportedly protested against the presence of the mosque but had agreed to allow Muslims to continue praying there until the end of the Islamic fasting month of Ramadan.

But area Muslims says Sri Lanka’s religious affairs ministry had given them permission to continue using the site and had also provided special police security due to the threat of possible attacks.

Army officers stand guard next to a damaged lorry at Fashion Bug's warehouse after an attack by unidentified men in Colombo March 28, 2013.A Muslim-owned clothing warehouse was one of the targets attacked in recent months

Fears of persecution

The past year has seen mounting religious tension in the country as hardline Buddhist groups have attacked mosques and Muslim-owned businesses, as well as churches and clergy.

In February, one group also called for the abolition of the Muslim halal system of certifying foods and other goods.

Buddhist hardliners accuse Muslims and Christians of promoting extremism and trying to convert Buddhists to their own faiths.

Both Muslims and Christians have denied the accusations, correspondents report.

The Buddhist Sinhalese community makes up three-quarters of Sri Lanka’s population of 20 million.

During Sri Lanka’s bitter civil war, the Muslims – a small Tamil-speaking minority, about 9% of the population – kept a low profile, but many now fear that ethnic majority hardliners are trying to target them.

The incoherence of the mesmerized

9 Jan

Hujjut-ul Islam Imam al Ghazali (radi Allahu anh) wrote the Incoherence of the philosophers during a time of great confusion, where Muslims were presented with conflicting versions of Islam. I won’t go into too much detail regarding that period in history, but just want to mention parallels between his time and ours. Imam al Ghazali (radi Allahu anh) articulately, and successfully, defended the articles of faith against a tide of philosophical thinking that was based on incorrect and unscrupulous sets of thinking. Today, we have two camps who are challenging the orthodox traditions.

First are the liberals, who tend to avoid or shun certain religious practices and beliefs that do not fit within their pre-conceptualised secularist mindset. They support the western versions democracy, freedom, equality, etc.

Secondly, we have the Salafis/fundamentalists. They see everything in black and white. To them there is no compromise; no areas of discussion; no grey area. They do not tolerate much that does not fit within their framework of thought.

I want to ask these people a question. What do you make of this video?

If you do not feel sick after watching this, then shame on you. How much are we willing to sacrifice for so called freedom and democracy? What sort of Muslim, forget that; what sort of human being vandalises the grave of a deceased?

Go ahead and have your party. But remember, reality dictates that awareness of injustice is fruitless without sound grounding. Without the real understanding and application of Islam, nothing truly tangible will be achieved.

As a brother on a forum said, “some people ask why Sunnis cannot make peace and truce with Salafis…. here in this simple video is your answer”.

If you want to see real politics, then have a read of the this. We are nowhere near the standard of Sayyiduna Umar bin Abdul Aziz (radi Allahu anh).

Deobandi fitnah forced administartion to dig the grave of Saint in Indore

21 Jul

NAGPUR: Ending the 21-day controversy surrounding Hazrat Baba Mustafa, the city police exhumed the godman’s body from the Mohammed Ali Sarai as per the Supreme Court order before shifting it to premises of the Bada Tajbagh on Wednesday under tight security. Police also scored several brownie points ensuring that their process was guided by religious preachers and done in presence of the godman’s kin. The rain-drenched day had some tense moments as city police reimposed curfew in Mominpura locality before they deployed their strength to execute the apex court’s order.

The Godman had died shortly after the midnight of June 28. His bodywas buried in  Mominpura  in the Mohammed Ali Sarai, managed by the Central Tanzim committee in the early hours of the following day.

Later, a riot-like situation erupted after the Ahle Sunnat  clashed with the group who opposed the  burial in the sarai .

Police had to impose curfew apart from firing tear gas shells and use force to disperse the mob. The curfew was lifted on July 13. In the meantime, the Badi Masjid Trust and others filed a litigation against the burial, demanding exhuming of the body. The Baba’s followers had approached the apex court, seeking a stay on the order of the High Court.

The body was taken to its final resting place as a convoy of almost two dozen vehicles escorted the hearse van in which the last remains of the godman was shifted. The 10km journey between the sarai and Tajbagh was a highly secure affair with traffic diversions and strong police protection all along the road. The convoy had a police piloting vehicle followed by several police jeeps, teams of the special branch, state anti-Terrorist squad, NMC ambulances, fire tenders, a minibus carrying the Quick Response Teams (QRT), traffic vehicles and vehicles carrying senior officers. The entire process and the convoy was videographed and images were captured for records for future reference.

City police chief Ankush Dhanvijay said the shifting was well-planned and chalked out with the involvement of other agencies too. “We ensured that a handful of religious preachers from the same sect as that of the Baba were present for guiding the process with pious methods,” said Dhanvijay. He added, “Even the grave diggers were from the same sect and we had also called in the relatives of the godman to be present with us during the exhuming and later burial. We buried the body at a spacious place where other such revered souls are also resting. At the time of the burial, the Shahi Imam of Tajbagh was also present with his team of maulvis.”

Dhanvijay and municipal commissioner Sanjeev Jaiswal, along with NMC deputy commissioner Rizwan Siddiqui, had already reached the place shortly after the apex court delivered its verdict. A strong police force was deployed in the locality. City police’s special branch team too was ready with Baba’s relatives, the maulavis and the required tools and religious material required for the burial.

Police had already made their intention clear by retaining curfew and continuing arrests and preventive actions for around a fortnight after the riot broke out in the Muslim dominated Mominpura towards the end of June.

“We are keeping a close watch on the post-burial developments. Our curfew shall continue until the next security review satisfies us that normalcy has returned in true sense. We don’t mind extending the curfew to other places and so there is a warning against any kind of mischief mongering which would be also a sort of contempt of court,” said Dhanvijay.

माम हरम के भारत आगमन पर उर्दू अखबारों ने काफी कुछ लिखा है। जिस तरह उनका प्रचार-प्रसार किया जा रहा था उस पर चर्चा करते हुए एक अखबार ने लिखा है कि यह सुनामी है। सुनामी गुजर जाने के बाद देखिएगा, कैसे-कैसे दृश्य नजर आते हैं। पेश है इस बाबत उर्दू के कुछ अखबारों की राय।

`इमाम हरम का दौरा देवबंद’ के शीर्षक दैनिक `उर्दू नेट’ में सम्पादक असगर अंसारी ने लिखा है कि मक्का और मदीना की मस्जिद में इमामत के लिए योग्य होना ऐसा ही है जैसा दिल्ली की शाही मस्जिद का मामला है, बाप के बाद बेटा उसके बाद पोता। जिस तरह जामा मस्जिद के शाही इमाम की योग्यता पूर्व इमाम का बेटा होना है उसी तरह मक्का में स्थित हरम का इमाम होना मोहम्मद बिन अब्दुल वहाब के रिश्तेदारों से होना है। सऊदी अरब ने अपने यहां जारी आंदोलन की लहर को टालने के लिए मसलकी रंग दे दिया है और अमेरिका के इशारे पर इस्राइली हितों को संरक्षण देने हेतु बहरीन में सैनिक हस्तक्षेप कर दिया है। दूसरी ओर सऊदी अरब के धार्मिक विभाग के मंत्रालय ने आम मुसलमानों को यह समझाने की जिम्मेदारी दी है कि सऊदी अरब में इस्लाम के अनुसार शरई सरकार है और इसके खिलाफ गतिविधियां इस्लाम के खिलाफ और गैर शरई हैं। सभी इमामों से कहा गया है कि वह आंदोलनकारियों को शिया करार देकर इस्लामी जगत के लिए खतरा करार दें ताकि सुन्नी मुसलमान इस आंदोलन के खिलाफ एकजुट हो जाएं। सऊदी अरब के सामने सबसे बड़ा मिशन यही है और उसके मंत्री, दूत एवं धार्मिक व्यक्ति इस समय दुनियाभर के दौरे पर हैं। शेख अबुर्दुरहमान बिन अब्दुल अजीज असुदैस का दौरा भी इसी सिलसिले की कड़ी मालूम होता है। कांफ्रेंस के लिए विषय का चयन भी ऐसा है जो मुसलमानों में बहरहाल विवादित है।

`और कितना नीचे उतरेंगे अरशद मियां?’ के शीर्षक से वरिष्ठ पत्रकार हफीज नोमानी ने `जदीद’ खबर में लिखा है कि उनके प्रेस में सैयद सालार मसूद गाजी के उर्स का पोस्टर छपवाने एक साहब आते थे। एक बार जब वह आए तो उन्होंने कहा कि इस बार पोस्टर में आधे में मेरा फोटो और तीन इंच की मोटी पट्टी में नाम सहित आधे में उर्स का विवरण और कैलेंडर होगा। इसकी संख्या एक लाख होगी। यह पूछने पर कि इस बार ऐसा अलग क्यों हैं, उन्होंने कहा कि वह चुनाव लड़ना चाहते हैं इसीलिए आधे में फोटो और आधे में कैलेंडर है ताकि लोगों के घर में लगा रहे और सालभर लोग मुझे देखकर याद करते रहें। इस उदाहरण को देने के बाद वह लिखते हैं अगर हमारी बात गलत है तो माफ कर दीजिएगा। हमें बिल्कुल ऐसा लग रहा है कि जैसे हमारे दोस्त सैयद सालार मसूद गाजी की गोद में बैठकर संसद में पहुंचना चाहते हैं। मौलाना अरशद मदनी बिना जरूरत और बिना किसी कारण पैगम्बर मोहम्मद के महान साथियों (सहाबा) को जमीअत उलेमा के लिए इस्ताल कर रहे हैं। दिल्ली में लाख दो लाख मुसलमानों को जमा करके अपनी लोकप्रियता का प्रदर्शन कर राज्यसभा की सदस्यता के लिए रास्ता साफ कर रहे हैं।

`सहाबा की महानता के नाम पर अमेरिकी हितों का संरक्षण’ के तहत डॉ. मुजफ्फर हुसैन गजाली ने `सेकुलर कयादत’ में लिखा है। हिन्दुस्तानी मुसलमान यह महसूस करते हैं कि ऐसे समय में सहाबा की महानता पर कांफ्रेंस करना जबकि मुस्लिम देशों में तानाशाहों के खिलाफ लोकतंत्र के हक में एक जबरदस्त इंकलाब आया हुआ है जिसकी शुरुआत ईरान से हुई थी। इत्तेहाद मिल्लत (मुस्लिम एकता) को नुकसान पहुंचाना है। मुस्लिम दुनिया में जो हालात पैदा हो रहे हैं उनसे ईरान के लिए मुसलमानों में गुंजाइश पैदा हुई है और शिया-सुन्नी करीब आए हैं। अरशद मदनी की सहाबा की महानता कांफ्रेंस मुस्लिम हित की नहीं बल्कि इस्राइल एवं अमेरिका के हित के संरक्षण की कांफ्रेंस है। सऊदी अरब में लोकतांत्रिक सरकार अमेरिका के हित में नहीं है। ऐसा करने से उसकी पकड़ कमजोर पड़ जाएगी। हो सकता है कि मौलाना मिल्ली इत्तेहाद को नुकसान पहुंचाकर इस अवसर का फायदा उठाने की रणनीति के तहत मैदान में उतरे हों। इससे मौलाना के दो मकसद पूरे हो सकते हैं। एक कांग्रेस उन्हें राज्यसभा में भेज दे तो उनकी मंजिल है दूसरे उन्हें आने वाले चुनावों में मुसलमानों का वोट कांग्रेस के हक में डलवाने का ठेका मिल जाए। `हमारा समाज’ में सालिक धामपुरी ने `देखने हम भी पर तमाशा न हुआ’ के शीर्षक से लिखा है। इमाम हरम के हमारे देश में आने की सूचना कारोबारी मकसद से निकलन वाले अखबारात में दीनी व मिल्ली जमाअतों बल्कि हमारे उलेमा की ओर से दिए गए लाखों रुपये के विज्ञापनों से पढ़ने को मिली। इमाम हरम का हमारे देश में आने का मकसद क्या है यह हम नहीं जानते, लेकिन इनके आगमन पर हमारी मिल्ली जमाअतों ने अपनी पब्लिसटी का कोई मौका हाथ से नहीं जाने दिया। 26 मार्च को इमाम हरम को जमाअत इस्लामी हिन्द के मुख्यालय स्थित गुबंद वाली मस्जिद में जोहर की नमाज पढ़ानी थी इसके लिए एक दिन पहले से ही रिक्शे पर ऐलान कराया गया और अखबारों में विज्ञापन दिया गया जिसके कारण भीड़ इतनी हो गई कि वह मस्जिद के अन्दर नहीं जा सके और उन्हें बिना नमाज पढ़ाए ही वापस जाना पड़ा। माना कि भीड़ के कारण वह नमाज नहीं पढ़ा सके लेकिन जमाअत इस्लामी हिन्द कैडर आधारित संगठन होने का दावा करती है। देश की व्यवस्था की तब्दीली की इच्छा रखने वाली जमाअत एक मामूली से कार्यक्रम को कंट्रोल नहीं कर सकी। सुबह से इमाम हरम के जोहर की नमाज अदा कराने का एक मुबारक तमाशे का जो ऐलान हो रहा था, अफसोस कि वह तमाशा न हो सका। `इमाम हरम के दौरे पर सियासी रोटियां सेकने की कोशिश तेज’ के तहत देवबंद से रिजवान सलमानी ने `हमारा समाज’ में लिखा है कि राजनैतिक विशेषज्ञों का मानना है कि केंद्र की यूपीए सरकार विशेषकर प्रधानमंत्री मनमोहन सिंह के अमेरिका की ओर झुकाव से कांग्रेस की मुसलमानों और सेकुलर लोगों में जो छवि बनी है, इमाम हरम के दौरे से इसमें बदलाव आएगा। कांग्रेस और ममता बनर्जी की तृणमूल कांग्रेस ने आगे बढ़कर इस कार्यक्रम में भाग लिया और केंद्रीय स्वास्थ्य मंत्री गुलाम नबी आजाद ने उनके लिए अशोका होटल में भोज दिया। उससे कांग्रेस के इरादे किसी से छिपे नहीं रह सके। विशेषज्ञ यह भी मानते हैं कि गत कुछ समय से उत्तर प्रदेश के मुसलमानों को समाजवादी पार्टी और बहुजन समाज पार्टी से तोड़ने में जीजान से कांग्रेस लगी है। वर्तमान कार्यक्रम को कांग्रेस की इसी नीति का हिस्सा माना जा रहा है।

`इमाम हरम की राजनीति’ के शीर्षक से दैनिक `हमारा समाज’ में ख्वाजा मजनू ने लिखा है। राजधानी वालों के लिए यह सप्ताह काफी मुबारक था। हर तरफ पवित्र हलचल थी। लोग जा-ए-नमाज (जमीन पर बिछाकर नमाज पढ़ने का कपड़ा) लेकर भागते नजर आ रहे थे। जिन्होंने कभी खुदा का घर नहीं देखा वह भी भगवान राम के मैदान सिजदा करने के लिए बेचैन थे। कोई इसे आधा हज का दर्जा दे रहा था तो कोई हज से भी ज्यादा महत्व देने में लगा था। दिल्ली में इमाम साहब कहां जाएंगे और कहां नहीं जाएंगे इसके लिए अन्दर ही अन्दर खूब खींचातानी हुई। आईटीओ स्थित मस्जिद अब्दुल नबी से 24 घंटे कंट्रोलिंग की कोशिश की जा रही थी।

यहां मुंबई के एक साहब हैं, जिन्हें कुछ लोग मोबाइल आफिस भी कहते हैं। वह एक ट्रेवल एजेंट हैं लेकिन छोटे बाबू की सेवा करना अपना कर्तव्य समझते हैं। छोटे बाबू ने वह कर दिखाया जिससे उनके पूर्वज वर्षों से नहीं करना चाहते थे। सऊदी सरकार के खिलाफ अपनी आवाज उठाने के लिए मशहूर इनके पूर्वजों की आत्मा को कितनी तकलीफ हुई होगी जब एक सरकारी इमाम के लिए शेखुल इस्लाम का नारा लगा रहे हों। एक ऐसा व्यक्ति कदमों में एक कर्मचारी के गिर पड़ा हो जिनके पूर्वजों के कदमों में पूरा शासन नतमस्तक हुआ हो और उन्होंने उसे ठोकर मार दी हो। खैर, यह तो समय-समय की बात है। हालात सदैव एक जैसे नहीं रहते और बुद्धिजीवी वही है जो हालात के अनुसार फैसला करे, जो अपनी बरतरी के लिए किसी का कदम चूमें और किसी के दर पर माथा टेके।

U.S Church Plan to Observe coming 11th September  as Burn Quran Day has caused great anger and distrust among the Indian Muslims.

Raza Academy, Muslim Students Organization of India MSO, All India Muslim Jamaat,All India Jamat-e-Raza-e-Mustafa,IEBI with several other Muslim Organizations organised massive Protest at Jantar Mantar New Delhi on Wednesday.

This action has exposed the real face of Church which is hiding its face in the several Cases of Sexual Harassement of Innocent Children. Psuedo Pastors wearing costly wardrobes and talking about Respect, Mercy and Love are Starting a new type of war in the World by Ordering the Publicly burning a religious book of other religion. The silent of their Chief authority Pope on this highly Sensitive Issue is also Criminal .He has to be very Clear here, either Support this dirty Face of Church or Oppose it in highest terms.

The 9/11 has nothing to do with Islam or Muslims.The 11 Sep attack on US was caused by the enemies of Muslims to make it Excuse for the attack on Muslim nations. In the end it is demanded from the Indian Govt and from US govt to  take step for the Immediate Stopping of this ghastly Illegal and highly hateful Programme.

The Muslim Woman “Unveiled”
By Izdehar Albowyha

You look at me and call me oppressed,
Simply because of the way I’m dressed,

You know me not for what’s inside,
You judge the clothing I wear with pride,

My body’s not for your eyes to hold,
You must speak to my mind, not my feminine mold,

I’m an individual, I’m no mans slave,
It’s Allah’s pleasure that I only crave,

I have a voice so I will be heard,
For in my heart I carry His word,

“O ye women, wrap close your cloak,
So you won’t be bothered by ignorant folk”,

Man doesn’t tell me to dress this way,
It’s a Law from God that I obey,

Oppressed is something I’m truly NOT,
For liberation is what I’ve got,

It was given to me many centuries ago,
With the right to prosper, the right to grow,

I can climb mountains or cross the seas,
Expand my mind in all degrees,

For God Himself gave us LIB-ER-TY,
When He sent Islam,
To You and Me.

Behind the veil I am the queen..
I have a body that nobody seen..
Many people think I am oppressed-
And wonder how I got myself into this mess..

My veil is my cure..
And makes my heart pure..
It earns me my love from Allah my Lord..
And makes me strong against any sword..

Behind my beautiful veil lies..
My savior from the temptation of guys!
‘Behind my veil,’ I begin to say..
‘Is where I shall forever stay!’

“Salaam” To You All…

“Therefore remember Me  I will remember you, and  be Thankful
to Me, & do not be Ungrateful to Me”

Pakistan mourns the Data Darbar Attack : Sunni Leaders blamed govts Inaction against Talibani Fasadis

10-day deadline for govt to act against terrorists: Sunni Ittehad Council

LAHORE – Sunni Ittehad Council, a group of about two-dozen religious parties from Barelvi school of thought, has given a call for complete shutterdown and peaceful protests on Saturday (today). The decision was taken at a meeting held here at Jamia Naeemia after Friday prayers.
Briefing the newsmen after a detailed consultation in the Council meeting, MNA Sahibzada Fazle Karim, who is also head of his faction of JUP, said the Government in Punjab was playing in the hands of terrorists while the federal government was hostage to a religious party acting as political blackmailers abetting those who occupy mosques of Sunnis to turn those into terrorists camps. He warned of direct action against the rulers if government failed to get rid of terrorists at political level and break their network in the country within ten days, adding that government had no writ in the country and had no right to rule. He said a countrywide convention of all Sunni parties would be convened soon to decide future line of action. He said the meeting also demanded expulsion of a ruling coalition partner at the centre involved in abetting occupation on mosques of other schools of thought.
Former federal minister Haji Hanif Tayyab criticized ‘certain elements’ in the electronic media for allegedly making provoking speeches against shrines of saints, and demanded they should also be taken to task. He also accused Jamaat ud Dawa of having links with extremists, and demanded taking back millions of rupees of government and private funds from it, adding that its funding was done at the behest of the United States. He demanded strict action against the banned outfits accusing the rulers of allowing them to work under new names. He said that the same elements who had attacked the Rehman Baba’s shrine in the Khyber PK were involved in the Lahore incident. He also accused Punjab government of covering up of a big cache of arms seized from a Raiwind locality.

Staff Report

LAHORE: Scores of people from across the provincial capital held protest demonstrations against the government’s failure to avert the terrorist attack at the Data Darbar while demanding tough action against Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah and others for having connections with extremists.

The Alami Tanzeem Ahle Sunnat, joined by several other religious organisations, led the largest protest outside the Data Darbar after the Friday prayers, while similar protests also took place on The Mall and outside Lahore Press Club. The protesters even tried to enter the Punjab Assembly building, but the authorities managed to disperse them. Sunni leaders including Alami Tanzeem Ahle Sunnat president Peer Afzal Qadri, Syed Safdar Shah Gillani, Sahabzada Mustafa Ashraf Khalid Mehmood Qadri, Syed Salman Shah and others addressed the demonstrations.

They said that terrorists were “becoming stronger” because of their links with certain people in the government and that all such people should be exposed and punished for their crimes.

They lashed out at Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah for having close ties with extremist organisations and demanded that he should be the first one to face action for supporting terrorists. The protesters chanted slogans against the provincial government for having extremist sympathisers among their ranks and also raised slogans against the president. The speakers said that the government’s policies have brought the country to the verge of instability and people could not consider themselves to be safe in their homes, nor so in their worship places. They said that we have pledged to save the whole country and we will face these terrorists from the front.

Separately, a consortium of different Sunni groups called the Sunni Ittehad Council held a press conference in the Jamia Naeemia after holding a detailed meeting to form a future strategy. The council announced a country-wide strike against the attack and requested its followers to remain peaceful. They also demanded that the key officials directly responsible for providing security to the people, including the interior minister, the secretary, the inspector general of police and others, be removed from their posts for their failure to do their jobs.

They also criticiced people from both the federal and provincial governments for “showing cowardice” by not visiting the attack scene.

They pointed out that banned outfits were still operating in the country under different names and demanded that all such organisations be curbed, while the government should appologise for providing funds to the Jamaatud Dawa.

Syed Muhammad Qaudri National President of Muslim Students organization of India(MSO) told Data darbar is revered by Millions of followers throughout South Asia and by attacking it Suicide Bombers of Taliban have shown their real intentions that tolerant and Peaceful Majority Sufi community is their real target and not US and Israel. Regular and Constant attacks on the Shrines of great and revered Sufi Saints in Pakistan and Afghanistan have unmasked the dirty face of Talibani Jehad which is actually against Muslims and Islam.This is not Jehad but ‘ Fasad ‘.

 Advocate Mudassir Naqshbandi of Idara Tehqiqat-e-Imam Ahmed Raza Kashmir said that by destroying the Shrines of Sufis ,these enemies of Islam cant snatch the love and respect from Our hearts towards these Holy Persons rather we will be more Inclined to Sufism after every attack.These Cowards bombers dont have the guts to fight with the Zionist forces so they are targetting non violent Sufi folloers.These forces are Playing in the hand of zionist forces by Creating rift and schism in the Community.

 Maulana Basharat Qaudri Saqaufi ,reputed Scholar from Sunni Markaz kerala and Vice President of MSO of India said that It is a fight between Love and hate and between Peace and Violence . The brand of Islam these hate compaigners Propagates is based on narrow Interpretation of Quran which leads and allows them to kill and Clean what they think is wrong .

Shujat Ali Qaudri Asstt Gen secretary  of MSO We are sure that History will repeate itself and Love will conquer Violence and the broad message of Sufism based on the life of prophet of Islam will prevail ultimately.
