In this debate between a Pakistan Army officer and a Taliban leader, the Pakistan Army officer literally is begging the Taliban to take back their fatwa to kill Pakistan Army soldiers. While the Taliban speaks with calm confidence, the Pakistani reveals panic in his voice. This debate was broadcast right across Pakistan Army radio and on two-way handheld radio communication......

 

 

So after ten years I have to admit that this attempt to link with personal linkages was wrong. We as journalists have no right to go around pretending as if we're holier than anyone else. We can get things wrong. It is our duty to raise questions which is what we did. And once the answers are in, you cannot now hold up somebody guilty just because the congress wants to indulge in the politics of fear. just because the congress wants to use phrases that have been used at that moment under a cloud of suspicion, but the phrases that have become irrelevant after scrutiny. So, I'm ready to admit it and I hope others will also admit as much, and now carry on.......

 

Over the past quarter of a century seen in Europe and the US is any indication, the "Islamic researchers" who drafted The Project more than two decades ago see their long-term plan to conquer the West and to see the Green flag of Islam raised over its citizens realized so rapidly, efficiently and completely. If Islamists are equally successful in the years to come, Westerners ought to enjoy their personal and political freedoms while they last.

“The Baloch nationals fed up of this occupation, the average house hold does not want to be part of Pakistan. The people have come to the conclusion; we would rather die than be with Pakistan. Because being with them is daily death. Families, nations, and tribes everybody is suffering over there.”

The video shows Muslims in New Delhi taking over a section of a major city traffic artery to offer their Friday midday ‘Jumaa’ prayers causing huge traffic jams and public resentment. Is this piety? Do non-Muslims have to be inconvenienced to please Allah?

Top Pakistani cleric Maulana Irfan ul Haq quotes an obviously concocted Hadees against idol-worshippers of India and appeals to all Pakistanis to take arms to destroy all infidels from the Indian sub-continent.  The term infidel and idol-worshipper obviously includes in his dictionary the overwhelming majority of Muslims who show veneration to the great Sufi saints who brought Islam to South Asia.

 The Maulana claims that Prophet Muhammad has predicted that one day India will be conquered by Mujahideen and all idol-worshippers will be destroyed. Those who will participate in this bloody war will go straight to Heaven. This is called Ghazwa-e-Hind. This is one of the many examples of how fanatic Mullahs brainwash Pakistani people and promote terrorism against India. Read below the full script of the speech rendered into English.

Will Indian Muslim leaders and Ulema please stand up and say that this Hadees is an obvious concoction of the Pakistani Mullahs. If not now, when? How long will we silently watch our religion being hijacked by fanatics, and to our detriment?

These petrodollar funded fanatics are already destroying Sufi shrines in Pakistan and in several African countries. Nearly all religious, architectural heritage of Islam has been already destroyed from Hejaz now called Saudi Arabia. The few remaining around Masjid-e-Nabwi in Madina are on the verge of destruction.

Now they are bent on attacking India too. When will we speak out, confront them, at least say that this is not Islam.

Richard Falk is Emeritus Professor of International Law at Princeton University and the UN's Special Rapporteur on Palestinian human rights.

He's 80 years old, he's Jewish and he draws a lot of fire for his tough critical stand on Israel; from the Israeli government, the US and some of his colleagues within the UN.

The premise for this address is that the international community is failing the Palestinians, due largely to their fear of offending the Israeli and the American governments.

This 12-year-old Egyptian boy is putting together some very complex arguments against the Muslim Brotherhood's attempt to grab power in Egypt. If you think he's just regurgitating a script or something, watch him answer a question about gender equality.

It's quite easy to assume from the sensations headlines at the very idea of speaking about Islam peace seems nonsensical. After all week doesn't does not go by without a extremist Muslim hitting the headlines. And this evening our esteemed speakers arguing for the opposition are going to paint this sinister picture referring to the usual polemics and we had a taste of that so far, but what I would say in order to assess the debate this evening effectively, we must distinguish the Muslim, the imperfect practitioner from Islam. The spiritual message and the ethical ideals and interacting adhered to, and also what I would say is that we must allow Islam to define itself, not Saudi Arabia but all these horrible places that were mentioned. We must allow Islam to define itself and assess how Islam sees itself in its entirety.

 

I've also been told, we have also been told tonight that this debate must take place in the real world. Well, Absolutely! Yes it must. It must take place in the real world. And I would describe what's Islam doing in the real world. We can sit and we can debate theocracy day-in and day-out. We will never agree we can debate: is there a God? Is the Koran real? None of this actually matters. What matters is what happens in the real world, as my opponent quite rightly said. My side of healthy argument is regularly told that we've had it again tonight. They described us as mongers of hate. We were told that we are demonising Islam whipping up fear of Islam. .... 

 

Let me begin by saying as a Muslim, as a representative of Islam, I would consider myself an ambassador for Islam , a believer in Islam, a follower of Islam and its prophet, so  in that capacity let me begin by apologizing for the Bali bombings, apologize for the role of my religion to me and my people of for the killing of fear and go off the seven yes that was all of us, that was Islam, that was Muslims, that was the Quran, I mean  astonishing claims to make in the very first speech on a day like today whether conservative prime minister of United Kingdom and the come out and point out that these kind of these are not from and I believe you're trying to stand for the Labour Party MP in Briton. If you do that and you make these comments, I 'm guessing you have the wit withdrawn from you but then again you kept on the rise they'll take heed the BNP they might have something to say about your views.  

 

We are living through such a wave of today which includes the Wahhabi and Salafi branches of Sunni and the Iranian inspired Shia Islam. The overall name we give to these movements is Islamism or radical Islam rather than emphasize the earlier more pacific elements in the Mohammad’s teachings such as his constitution of Medina which granted equal rights to Jews Christians and pagans. Islamists emphasize later doctrines such as the division of the world into the Darul Islam and the Darul Harab, the house of Islam and the house of war. We are living apparently in the house of war or the draconian enforcement of Sharia law.

 

NewAgeIslam TV: Social Inclusion through the Prism of Sufism
Dr Mehr Fatima Hussain in a Jamia-NewAgeIslam Meet

Despite being penalized, Sufis never succumbed in a mission of promoting social justice and equality, that too mostly in the common language of the people. In this regard, we can also explore the secular sources that are compiled in vernacular languages. Gesu Daraz, the 15th century Sufi was a prolific writer and his love for the poor and the lowly and his defence of the rights of man earned him the title of Banda Nawaz, that is, benefactor of God’s creatures. He was one of the early poets and writers in Urdu language. Not only Urdu, in promoting vernacular languages and regional dialects, the Sufis played an eminent role. In the process or promoting their message of peace and harmony, they also cemented linguistic bonding. Often they travelled to the distant corners of the country promoting inter-regional synthesis as well.

 

In Pakistan, last year 13,000 websites were blocked. The government claimed they were “pornographic” and “blasphemous”. But we have no idea yet under what charge some pages of our website New Age Islam were blocked. These pages condemned and refuted the terrorist and extremist ideas of Taliban and advocated equal rights for Muslim women in the light of Qur’anic injunctions. How can a government that claims to be based on the ideals of Islam and vows to fight terrorists till the last breath take the action of blocking the pages condemning terrorism and promoting women’s religious rights? Does this not suggest that the bans were imposed by the Talibani elements active in Pakistani bureaucracy? Does it not point to a secret takeover of Pakistan’s policies by the Taliban? ...

However, the progressive readers of New Age Islam did not give up. They explored ways to open the blocked pages using the latest technology. Finally, they succeeded to open New Age Islam’s blocked pages with the help of Tor browser. Please watch the video uploaded below to see how Tor browser helped our readers in Pakistan to open our blocked pages.

DHIMMEDIA: Non-Violent Muslim Tarek Fatah criticizes Dhimmedia
Tarek Fatah, Richard Klagsbrun, Sandra Bussin

I have no problems saying Islamists captured and will be trying, it is white liberal men and women ……..I don't know where you stand on this but I'm sick and tired that a dozen people a day are being killed in Muslim countries, a dozen a day a minimum, in prayer centres  and prayer halls. Acid are being thrown on the faces of women and yet ... left-wing men and women in Europe and America simply cannot utter the word..., and it took three judges of the interior superior court to say to the Digi bomber twenty years from now before parole board and you will have to show that you have given up the doctrine of armed Jihad or not. Three judges could say that but not a single politician could address these terrorists and say that you needed a life sentence or to condemn destroy people.

Akbar the Great ruled most of the south Asia in 16th and early 17th century. Akbar was an extraordinary figure. So, what makes this man so great? What is his legacy? And what can be learned in the example that he left for future generations?

Born in Umarkot  India in 1542. Akbar the Great took over as ruler of Mughal Empire when he was only  14 years old. Although Akbar born in Sunni Muslim Family, he received the education from two Persian  Shia scholars on religious matters. After several transfers and military conquests which expanded his empire as far north as modern day Afghanistan and as far east in Bengal . Akbar began to implement an inclusive approach to non Muslims. Ushering in an era of religious tolerance based on the Sufi Concept of Sulah e Kul or peace to all. Despite never learning how to read and write, Akbar The great was a curious thinker, who constantly yearned for knowledge.

Ronald Reagan Building Amphitheater

Washington, D.C.

 

 

Though because of the strength of democracy in India, suicide bombings have not been heard of till now, it does not seem to be a distant possibility either.  I would like to tell you that the first fatwa declaring Shias kafir was issued from Lucknow and the Deobandi sectarian groups in Pakistan get guidance from Darul Uloom Deoband. They also read Maulana Manzoor Ahmad Nomani’s book and developed the belief that Shias are kafir, they must be killed and they should be excommunicated. So, I would very humbly say that if we believe that the society and the system of India and Bangladesh or of the Gulf States is such that violence cannot raise its ugly head there, we are mistaken and we should remove our misunderstanding.
