Born on 14th June, 1856 in the Bareilly city ,the great scholar was given the reverential title of Ala Hazrt-the great wise man. Ahmed Raza Khan wrote on numerous topics, including law, religion, philosophy and the sciences. He was a prolific writer, producing nearly 1,000 works in his lifetime,writing almost on all issues and covering all matters ,he influenced the Muslim masses.He worked to protect the traditional Islam which is attached to Sufism in South Asia and was facing challenge from the changing atmosphere of Islamic world after the establishment Salafi-Wahabi government in the Saudi Arabia.

Ahmed Raza Khan translated the Quran into Urdu, which was first published in 1912 under the title of Kanz ul-Iman a most popular translation of the Holy Quran. One of the finest books written by him is Fatawa Radhvia. It comprises over 12000 pages in 12 volumes. It provides authoritative solutions to thousands of religious and secular problems faced by the Muslims in day-to-day life. All his disciples and followers spread his movement named as Ahle Sunnat Movement which has largest following estimated to up to 2/3 majority of all south Asian Muslims by various sources and institutions across south Asia including India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Afghanistan Nepal, Sri Lanka and in many African and European countries.

The movement is considered a peaceful movement keeping itself largely separated from extremist and terrorist organizations. Its indifferent attitude towards these organizations, their extremist ideologies have made followers of this movement itself victim of the extremist organizations. In Pakistan the movement has lost its major leaders most prominent among them are Mufti Sarafaraz Naeemi of Jamia Naeemia who had issued verdict against Tehreek-e-Taliban and Saleem Qadri ,leader of Sunni Tehreek who was working for the recapturing of Sunni Mosques.

Destruction of Holy sites in Syria:Pakistan summoned Syrian envoy

23 Jul

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Monday summoned a senior Syrian diplomat to strongly condemn what it called the ‘deliberate and wanton’ attacks on holy sites in Syria including recent attacks on Sayyeda Bibi Zainab’s shrine in Damascus.The foreign ministry conveyed Pakistan’s deep concerns over such ‘reprehensible acts.’According to the foreign ministry spokesperson, the government of Pakistan urged upon Syrian authorities to ensure safety and security of all holy shrines and buildings in Syria.

“The trend of desecration of the holy sites has hurt the sentiments of Muslims in Pakistan as indeed the world over. Such violations, which also fan sectarian strife, are most reprehensible,” the spokesperson added. Pakistan also called upon all parties involved in the Syrian conflict to observe the international humanitarian law and help protect the common heritage of mankind respecting the sanctity of the holy buildings and places of worship.

Islamabad summoned the Syrian envoy a day after countrywide protests against the desecration of holy sites.

Protesters also staged a sit-in outside the foreign office on Sunday, urging the government to denounce the attacks and take up the matter with concerned authorities.

On Monday, reports emerged that the mosque where Khalid Bin Walid, a companion of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and commander of Muslim forces known for his military prowess and conquests, had been buried in Syria, had been damaged by military shelling.

Breaking News:Hazrat Khalid bin Waleed’s shrine destroyed in Syria

23 Jul

BEIRUT – Shelling destroyed the centuries-old mausoleum of a companion of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) in the central city of Homs on Monday, a monitoring group and activists said.

Reports of the destruction of the Muslim pilgrimage site emerged as an intense army campaign to reclaim rebel-held areas of Homs, a strategic junction city, entered its fourth week.
“Activists from the Khaldiyeh neighbourhood in the city of Homs have reported the destruction by army shelling of the mausoleum of the prophet’s companion Khaled bin Walid,” said the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
Housed in the rebel area of Khaldiyeh, the Khaled bin Walid mosque had already suffered significant damage during earlier fighting for control of the city.
Amateur video distributed by activists showed the mosque, renowned for its two towering minarets, and images of what was identified as the destroyed mausoleum.
“The Khaled bin Walid mosque was shelled, and the shrine was completely destroyed,” said the unnamed activist filming the footage.
The images show mounds of rubble, stone and metal at the site identified as the mausoleum.
The video also shows an unidentified man lashing out at the world over the destruction of the shrine. “I want to tell Arabs and Muslims, how will you face God after Khalid bin Walid’s shrine has been destroyed? Why have you abandoned besieged Homs?” says the man. Speaking to AFP via the Internet, Khaldiyeh-based activist Yazan said the mosque holds symbolic importance not only for Homs’ residents but for Sunnis as a whole.
“People used to come and visit the shrine from the world over,” Yazan said, adding that the mosque housing the shrine is “practically destroyed”.
Khaldiyeh and the Old City neighbourhoods of Homs, still under rebel control, have been under suffocating army siege and near-daily bomb attacks for more than a year. The mosque housing Khalid bin Walid’s shrine, an important pilgrimage site for Muslims, was built over several centuries. The shrine itself dates to the 11th century, while the mosque was constructed by the Mameluks in the mid-13th century.
Known for his military prowess, Khalid bin Walid’s forces captured Damascus from the Byzantine empire. A military commander under Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and under two successive caliphs, he died around the year 642, in Homs.
Bin Walid’s mausoleum is the latest of a series of Syrian religious and cultural sites damaged or destroyed in the course of the country’s 28-month war.
In the war-torn northern city of Aleppo, the minaret of the landmark Umayyad mosque was destroyed in April, while parts of the ancient souks were burnt down in September last year.

Jama’at-e-Islami and Islam

18 Jul

Ashutosh Sarkar

Although the Jamaat-e-Islami had claimed that Islam was its ideology, no proof of humanity and tolerance was found in its activities during the Liberation War, International Crimes Tribunal-2 said yesterday in its verdict against Jamaat leader Ali Ahsan Mohammad Mojaheed.
Terming the pro-liberation Bangalee people “miscreants”, “agents of India”, and “enemies of Islam”, the Jamaat had opted to wipe them out only in the name of preserving Pakistan, noted the tribunal judges.
“The nation will be failing to acknowledge the sacrifices of millions of people who had laid their lives and honour for the cause of our hard-earned independence if individuals like the present accused [Mojaheed] are not brought to book for their notorious role and active contribution and endorsement for committing systematic atrocities in 1971 in the territory of Bangladesh,” they added.
Reiterating the observations made in the verdict against another Jamaat leader Muhammad Kamaruzzaman in May this year, the tribunal said the victims and sufferers of the diabolical atrocities do have the right to know the Jamaat’s role in 1971.
The ICT-2 handed death sentence to Mojaheed, secretary general of Jamaat-e-Islami, for committing crimes against humanity during the Liberation War 42 years ago.
The same tribunal had found Kamaruzzaman, one of the key organisers of the infamous Al-Badr, guilty of committing crimes against humanity and sentenced him to death.
Yesterday’s verdict also said, “The Jamaat-e-Islami had played a substantial role in formation of the Al-Badar [Al-Badr], Razakar, al-Shams and peace committees and of course not with the intent to guard the civilians and their property.”
The Al-Badr was an “action section” and “armed wing” of the Jamaat-e-Islami, which was formed mainly with the workers of the Jamaat’s student wing Islami Chhatra Sangha, observed the judges.
The Jamaat, they said, had indulged in indiscriminate massacre of their political opponents belonging to the Bangalee nation in the name of liquidating “miscreants” and “infiltrators” for which it had used Razakars and Al-Badr.
The tribunal further held that the Jamaat had allowed the creation of Al-Badr and Razakar to operate an assembly line of incalculable atrocities in the territory of Bangladesh in 1971.
This party cannot be relieved of the accountability of unspeakable mayhem, atrocities and murders committed by the Al-Badr, which was created by it (Jamaat), stated the court.

Indian Muslim Youths Protested against Israel: MSO supported Palestine

23 Nov

Jaipur 23rd Nov’12 Friday from 3-4 P.M

In Solidarity with Palestinian People, Muslim Students Organization of India MSO, an apex body of Muslim Youths and students organized Protest March against Israel on 23rd Nov 2012 at Jaipur, India. March route was from Government Hostel near Commissioner Office upto Udhyog Maidan Statute Circle.

Muslim Students Organization of India National Secretary Engineer Shujaat Ali Quadri said that MSO condemns in harshest terms, the Israeli attack against the people of Palestine. Israel started this War when it broke truce by assassinating the Hamas leader Ahmad Jabri who was working on a long-term truce with Israel.

As ceasefire between Israel and Hamas has come into effect so MSO is of the view that Turkey, Iran and Egypt can play a positive role by permanently bringing an end to this problem. MSO lauds the efforts of all those nations who are working for truce. At the same time, MSO criticize Saudi Arabian government for silently supporting Israeli aggression by not speaking against it or by not exerting pressure on it. So called Champions of Human Rights and main stream Media raised their voice against and reacted sharply to the attack on a single girl Malala Yousuf Zai but they have maintained criminal silence over Israeli aggression against the innocent Palestine people.

We are of the view that by reiterating its earlier solidarity with Palestine, India has supported a cause of Humanity but to be really moral leader of the Third World and Non-Aligned Movement, It must raise a strong voice against the Israeli aggression.

MSO declare their full and unconditional support to our Palestinian brothers and sisters, and laud their brave resistance against the aggression of the Israeli oppressors.

LAHORE

The Sunni Ittehad Council, Pakistan, has demanded Prime Minister Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani call All Parties Conference to protect the holy shrines and establish a special force for security of the places.

Addressing a press conference at the Lahore Press Club here on Monday, Sunni Ittehad Council chairman Sahibzada Fazl Karim said attacks on the holy shrines were a part of an international conspiracy to provoke sectarianism in the country. He said some forces wanted to destabilize the country by attacking peaceful gatherings at the holy shrines, adding the attackers were promoting anarchy in the name of Jihad and they had no connection with Islam.

Fazl Karim said that the Sunni Ittehad Council would hold an Istehkam-e-Pakistan Sunni Conference in the premises of Minar-e-Pakistan Lahore on April 17, to counter terrorism and create peaceful atmosphere in the country, wherein thousands of workers would take oath to resist Talibanization in the country.

He said the delegations of Sunni clerics from 45 Muslim countries would participate in the conference to show solidarity with Pakistani Muslims.

Moreover, he said, the coming Friday would be observed as Condemnation Day against the anti-Islam activities and brutal attacks on the holy shrines.

Sahibzada also expressed his apprehension on target killings of hundreds of citizens and Sunni clerics in Karachi.

He demanded of the chief justice of Pakistan to take notice of the target killings and attacks on holy shrines.

On the occasion, a number of Sunni Ittehad leaders, including Pir Syed Mohammad Safdar Shah Gilani, Pir Syed Mohammad Ajmal Shah Gilani, Pir Mohammad Athar-ul-Qadri and Mohammad Zia-ul-Haq Naqashbandi, were also present.
