On 22nd February 2009, I read this curious article in Indian Express: The eldest son of fiery Dukhtaran-e-Millat (Daughters of Faith) leader Asiya Andrabi, Qasim was selected for the Kashmir under-16 team for the Vijay Merchant trophy this season. But while the rest of his teammates were celebrating their victory over Haryana in a group match, Muhammad was ordered back home immediately, and told that he couldn’t play for the “country his parents were fighting against”. His father Muhammad Qasim Fuktoo, a militant commander who subsequently set up a religious organisation called Muslim Deeni Mahaz (Muslim Religious Front), has been in prison since 1994 and is currently lodged in the Srinagar Central Jail. “How can I let him play for India? My son will never serve a country that is our enemy. It is just impossible,” she says, adding that she has other plans for him.
Andrabi wants to send Muhammad to Uttar Pradesh for higher studies at Jamiat-ul-Fallah (JuF) - a religious seminary. “I want him to get both science and religious education. I don’t want him to waste his life on cricket,” she says.
BuA : What do we get from the above? The mother is willing to send the son to JuF in UP and not anywhere else. Since she is so Anti-India, she believes that JuF will at the very least, not infuse a love of / for India into her child.
Delving deeper, I came to realize that JuF is a Deobandi seminary in Azamgarh. Deoband and Azamgarh – now why do they keep on appearing like bad coins in matters that deal with internal security (Indian Mujahideen, Abu Salem, Dawood Ibrahim etc) ?
In an article : “Azamgarh – where guns have replaced roses” : the article states: “AZAMGARH, A district from eastern UP, has been in the spotlight in the recent times for all the wrong reasons, especially with terror and violence-related events and has earned the notoriety of being a nursery of terror in India. Azamgarh happens to be home to a good number of activists of the banned Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) and its Indian Mujahideen outfit. It is a harsh reality that almost all the suspects for the recent attacks in Delhi, Jaipur, Ahmedabad, Varanasi and Hyderabad have a close nexus with Azamgarh.
Once known for Hindu-Muslim brotherhood and its high intellectual quotient, Azamgarh has slowly and gradually metamorphosed into a land of fundamentalists and owns the tag of being terror’s breeding ground. This extreme fundamentalism has thus provided a very fertile land for SIMI and other such outfits to flourish and torment the nation.
A large number of young, uneducated and unemployed Muslim youth, having no clear-cut future prospects, have fallen prey to the world of terrorism and the place has become a fertile ground for breeding terror. The likes of notorious don Abu Salem, Abu Bashir, Atif, etc, hailing from Azamgarh, have been able to misguide and motivate the youth from the region to take up career in drugs and terrorism.
Azamgarh is known for wrong reasons because of people like HAJI MASTAN, ABU SALEM and DAWOOD IBRAHIM who are related to this place.
In today’s Azamgarh, it seems that the youth has been misguided and the new breed of terrorists like Abu Bashir, Atif, Sajid, Saif have become a threat to the culture of this region and country. Where has the soothing and inspiring poetry of Kaifi Azmi gone? Why have the works of Sankrityayan and Upadhyaya been overshadowed by guns and bombs? Are we ever going to get more Azmis and Sankrityayans from this region or are we in for more Salems, Dawoods and Bashirs?
BuA: Hold that thought. Does is make sense to you the rationale why the fiercely anti – India leader of Dukhtaran e Millat feels at ease sending her son to a Deobandi madrassa in Azamgarh?
DEOBANDI TEACHING AT VARIANCE WITH QURAN:
Moving on – let’s look at this excellent & a must read article – “Sending a wrong message” written by Arif Mohammad Khan (Former Union Minister). In it he writes that Deoband teachings are at variance with what is written in Quran.
1A. Quran upholds the sanctity of life in most uncompromising terms and says: “If anyone slew a person be it for murder or for spreading mischief in the land it would be as if he slew the whole people: and if anyone saved a life it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people.”
1B. On the other hand, look at what the Deoband syllabus says: “The destruction of the sword is incurred by infidels, although they be not the first aggressors, as appears from various passages in the sacred writings which are generally received to this effect.”
2A. On the subject of the duty of a Muslim to invite others to the fold of faith, the Quran says: “Invite (all) to the way of the Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching; and argue with them in ways that are best and most gracious: for your Lord knows best who have strayed from His Path and who receive guidance.”
The Quran clearly places limitations on the responsibility of man in this matter. “Not upon you is their guidance but Allah guides whom He wills.” Further, the Quran totally rejects the use of any force and says: “If it had been the Lord’s will they would all have believed all who are on earth! Will you then compel mankind against their will to believe?”
2B. But Deoband appears to approve the use of force to spread religion. Its syllabus states: “When the Muslims enter the enemy’s country and besiege the cities or strongholds of the infidels, it is necessary to invite them to embrace the faith, because Ibn Abbas relates of the Prophet that he never destroyed any without previously inviting them to embrace the faith. If, therefore, they embrace the faith, it is unnecessary to war with them, because that which was the design of the war is then obtained without war. The Prophet, moreover, has said we are directed to make war upon men only until such time as they shall confess, “There is no God but one God.”
Arif Mohammad Khan goes on to write : “The Deoband’s syllabus on jihad is clearly in conflict with the Quran, the book that is believed by Muslims to be the divine word. It is based on the Hedaya, a 12th century compilation of Muslim law, not on the statute books of any Muslim country today, although in India its provisions regarding personal law are still referred to!”
This syllabus is not confined to Deoband, the seminary that was established in 1866, but is prescribed in more than 5,000 of its affiliates across the country and thousands of madrassas in Pakistan run by former students of the Deoband.”
BuA: Hold that thought. There are thousands of madrassas in Pakistan which are run by former students of Deoband and are run along Deobandi lines. This Deoband school of thought originated in Deoband, UP.
QUERY TO DEOBAND - NO REPLIES YET (THE SILENCE OF THE DEOBAND LAMBS)
Dr Arif Md Khan in his blog and article THE SILENCE OF DEOBAND LAMBS writes: I decided to seek enlightenment from Deoband through their DARUL IFTA (Department responsible for issuing FATWAS and responding to queries) and sent a query on their website on 22nd March 2008.
In the query among other things I gave following specific references of Hedaya :
"The destruction of the sword is incurred by infidels, although they be not the first aggressors, as appears from various passages in the sacred writings which are generally received to this effect." (Vol II P41)
"When the Muslims enter the enemy's country and besiege the cities or strongholds of the infidels, it is necessary to invite them to embrace the faith, because Ibn 'Abbas relates of the Prophet that he never destroyed any without previously inviting them to embrace the faith. If, therefore, they embrace the faith, it is unnecessary to war with them, because that which was the design of the war is then obtained without war. The Prophet, moreover, has said we are directed to make war upon men only until such time as they shall confess, "There is no God but one God." (P43)
After giving few more references I requested them to guide as how to dispel the misgivings of those who suffer not from any religious prejudice and acknowledge that Islam is a religion of peace but feel genuinely concerned about the syllabus taught in Deoband.
The Darul Ifta was kind to send me a Fatwa ID Number and assurance that the query will be answered but so far have REFRAINED FROM GIVING ANY REPLY."
Sohail Abbas, a leading Pakistani psychologist, in his recently published study based on personal interviews of 517 mujahideen arrested in Afghanistan and later lodged in two Pakistani jails, asserts that “the figures on rural/urban jihadis become even more interesting as all the jihadis, barring just a few, belonged to the DEOBANDI school of thought”.
BuA: Hold that thought again. Most of the Pakistani terrorists belonged to the Deobandi school.
MASOOD AZHAR & DEOBAND:
Following his release from jail by the Govt. of India in December, 1999, Masood Azhar went to the Binori mosque in Karachi and announced the formation of the JEM (Jaish e Mohammad). JeM instigated some of the fiercest terrorist movement inside Kashmir. Incidentally Binori mosque is one of the most staunch adherers of Deobandi school.
In Economic Times, an article reports that The Administrative Reform Commission’s (ARC) report on terrorism, which draws linkages between Jaish-e-Mohammed chief Maulana Masood Azhar and Deoband Dar-ul-Uloom, has left the Congress (the ruling political party in India) red faced and deeply embarrassed. It was, after all, prepared by AICC (Congress party, India) media department chairman Veerappa Moily, who also doubles up as the head of the Administrative Reforms Commission.
The ARC, in its Eighth Report on terrorism, presented in June last, attributes the spurt in terror attacks to the rise in religious fundamentalism. “There have been several terrorist incidents in India which were motivated by religious fundamentalism. Some of these activities overlap with political ambitions – like separatist elements in Jammu & Kashmir,” the report noted. “Thereafter, in January, 1994, Mohammed Masood Azhar Alvi arrived in India with the task of working out the reconciliation of the cadre of Harkat Mujahideen and Harkat-ul Jihad Islami whose parent organisations had merged to form the Harkat-ul-Ansar. His organisation’s main objective was to liberate Kashmir from Indian rule and to establish Islamic rule in Kashmir. He also interacted extensively with the leading figures of the DEOBAND Ulema,” it goes on to add.
BuA: Does the decision of Asiya Andrabi to send her son to Jamiat ul Falah, a Deobandi seminary in Azamgarh, now start making sense?
If one traverses the terrorist landscape of Pakistan, the stamp of Deoband is hard to miss. From Haqqani network to Mullah Omar to Harkat ul Mujahideen to the Taliban – the Deoband teaching and madrassas have been one COMMON & BINDING factor. In fact government and military sources in Kabul told The Observer that many bombers came from the Haqqanis' madrassas [religious schools based on Deobandi school] around Miram Shah, others from the system of Deobandi madrassas around Quetta.
DEOBAND & UNITED NATIONS:
This connection of DEOBAND ulemas to the TALIBAN in NWFP has brought out in the open by a Pakistani in United Nations recently.
Indian Express reports: Pakistan’s permanent representative in UN General Assembly, Abdullah Hussain Haroon, had said: “I have come up with a very good suggestion. The clerics of DEOBAND, who wield a great influence in the NWFP of Pakistan and Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA), should come to Pakistan and issue a fatwa against suicide bombings and the killings of Muslims in Pakistan as well as in India.”
DEOBAND AND TERRORISM IN JAMMU & KASHMIR:
Maulana Taukir Raza Khan, a prominent leader of the Barelvi Sunni sect, said: “It has been proved beyond doubt that those involved in acts of terror, particularly in Jammu and Kashmir, are the Muslims who follow the Deobandi school of thought.”
“We strongly object to the use of word ‘Jehad’ by separatists waging a war against the state in Jammu and Kashmir. It is also true that only the Deobandis are involved in the so called Jehad,” he added.
Maulana Syed Hashim, another venerated leader of Barelvi Sunni Muslims and a Sajjadanashin of Kachaucha Dargah in Ambedkar Nagar district, said: “Only the Wahabis or the Deobandis and the clerics of this sect are involved in acts of Terror in India.” The Centre should keep a close watch on the disciplines imparted in Deobandi madarsas and their syllabus should be prepared under the watchful eyes of the government, he added.
BuA: Administrative Reforms Committee, Maulana Syed Hashim and Maulana Taukir Raza Khan have laid bare to the Deobandi designs on India. Most of the terrorists caught come from Deobandi school. What conclusions can one draw from here?
What is DEOBANDI ISLAM?
Global Security describes it: Deoband is a town a hundred miles north of Delhi where a madrasa (religious school) was established there in 1867. The so-called 'Deobandi Tradition' itself is much older than the eponymous Dar-Ul-Ulum at Deoband. The Deoband madrasa brought together Muslims who were hostile to British rule and committed to a literal and austere interpretation of Islam.
The tack of Darul Uloom Deoband is in accordance with the Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jama'ah, Hanafiate practical method (Mazhab) and the disposition (Mashrab) of its holy founders, Hazrat Maulana Mohammad Qasim Nanautavi (Allah's mercy be on him!) and Hazrat Maulana Rasheed Ahmed Gangohi (may his secret be sanctified).
3 IMPORTANT POINT TO NOTE:
The Deobandi interpretation holds that a Muslim's first loyalty is to his religion and only then to the country of which he is a citizen or a resident;
secondly, that Muslims recognise only the religious frontiers of their Ummah and not the national frontiers;
thirdly, that they have a sacred right and obligation to go to any country to wage jihad to protect the Muslims of that country.
BuA: The Deobandi diktat: “loyalty to religion and not to country and the obligation to wage jihad in any country to protect the Muslims of that country” places it firmly and squarely as India’s enemy. Any Deobandi student coming out of a seminary in India will not side with India if India has to fight Pakistan or any Islamic country. He will rather wage jihad in India and against India’s interests. And isn’t that what has been happening till now as we look at within India and see terror strikes carried out by SIMI, Indian Mujahideen and other mishmash of terror groups from Pakistan in Kashmir and India – all owing their allegiance to Deobandi school.
The fundamentalist Deoband Dar-ul-Uloom brand of Islam inspired the Taliban movement. As Taliban nests in SWAT, India is worried that they will come to Kashmir and India and swoop down in Afghanistan. But India will do nothing to the mother ship – the Deobandi seminaries in India.
When Pakistan’s ISI chief says: “our aim is to weaken India from within and we can do it” – it is at least not lost on me, as to who his friends will be within India to sabotage it from within.
GUJRAT BLASTS, DEOBAND & AZAMGARH:
Mufti Abu Bashir has shown no remorse for those killed in the July serial blasts in Ahmedabad, believes the bombings in Lucknow, Varanasi, Faizabad and Jaipur were for “a just Islamic cause” and, as per police claims, has admitted to planning and execution of both the Ahmedabad and Jaipur blasts.
They are already calling him the new face of home-grown terror, the second most infamous resident of Azamgarh’s Sarai Mir village after gangster Abu Salem. Bashir studied in Madarsatul Islah and later in Deoband in Saharanpur.
What will be the next move of Deoband in India?
A Muslim writer in a provocative article has argued that an emerging alliance of Muslims, Christians, Dalits and Naxalites will shape the electoral fortune in 200 parliamentary seats – to the detriment of national parties. The implications of India being confronted by a pincer offensive of terrorism and sectarian blackmail are ominous. (MUSLIMS + NAXAL ??)
And true to this – the Deobandi sect are set to float a new political party ahead of the Lok Sabha polls in India due in a few months time.
Indian express reports: Those who played a pivotal role in proposing the front are perfume king Maulana Badruddin Ajmal and Azamgarh (AGAIN AZAMGARH!)-based Ulema council led by Maulana Amir Rasadi Nadvi, which had last month taken a trainload of protestors to New Delhi. Beside Ulema council, National Loktantrik Party led by Mohammed Arshad Khan, Parcham Party and few other Muslim outfits are also associated with the move. Maulana Ajmal is the founder of the Asom United Democratic Front (AUDF), whose party had won 13 seats in the 2005 Assembly polls. Ajmal has already announced their plan of setting up a pan-Indian Muslim party, with units in Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar and Jharkhand. He has also indicated that the AUDF will contest 20 seats in UP, 10 in Maharastra and nine in Assam.
The Meerut rally is being organised by Shahid Akhlaque, who was elected to Lok Sabha in 2004 on a BSP ticket, but later defected to Samajwadi Party (SP). It was only after he was refused a ticket from SP for the upcoming Lok Sabha polls that Akhlaque floated the Secular Ekta Party. The rally in Lucknow will be organised by the Ulema council.
The same day, the ulema council will be organising a protest demonstration against the alleged prosecution of the Muslim youth of Azamgarh, particularly of Sanjarpur town, after the Batala House encounter in Delhi. “Maulan Badruddin Ajmal has confirmed his participation in the Lucknow rally,” said Maulana Rasadi Nadvi, Convenor of the Ulema council.
“It will be a formidable organisation of the Muslims in the forthcoming elections as it will have the backing of all prominent Islamic institutions and organisations of the country, including Dar-ul-Uloom, Deoband, Jamaat-ul-Ulema Hind, Jamat-e-Islami Hind and Nadwa tul Ulema,” said Shahid Akhlaque.
BuA: Nothing wrong in Muslims forming an organization. After all in some spheres they are backward and need the help of people for their plight as has been highlighted by Sachar Committee Report. The ruling Congress party tried its KHAM (Kshatriya / Harijan / Adivasi / Muslim) to herd individuals as cattle into boxes to buy votes (and not for any social upliftment – but all political parties are guilty on this front) from and this puts paid to their carefully crafted Muslim vote bank.
However, when this help comes in the form of an organization or a political party headed by Deoband, I have reasons to worry. Clearly as has been highlighted before, Deoband’s curriculum and its ethos are not in consonance with a harmonious living. The way Taliban has harshly interpreted Islam, their intolerance even being questioned in Pakistan civil society, they will clearly cause divide and unrest in India. Any organization preaching : “When the Muslims enter the enemy’s country and besiege the cities or strongholds of the infidels, it is necessary to invite them to embrace the faith, because Ibn Abbas relates of the Prophet that he never destroyed any without previously inviting them to embrace the faith. If, therefore, they embrace the faith, it is unnecessary to war with them, because that which was the design of the war is then obtained without war.” After all, India itself could be the land of the “enemy”.
Imagine if a party led by Deoband manage to get majority seats in India? After all, we let the Muslims from Bangladesh in for vote bank (by Congress in Assam and CPIM in Bengal). How long will they vote for others – hence the time to float an all India party and put both Congress and CPIM in their place? What will happen in India if such a party cobbles together a majority – due to a break up of Hindu and the so called “secular vote”?
Keeping this in mind the Vishwa Hindu Parishad has sent a letter to 13 prominent Muslim organisations in India with a curious request — that they declare, in a fatwa, India to be a "friend" of Islam, or a Dar-ul-Aman, therefore making jihad against India and Indians invalid.
The Dharm Raksha Manch, a congregation of Hindu leaders, also asked the Muslim leadership to declare that Hindus were not "kafirs" and therefore should not be targets of jihad. The letter has been sent to the All India Milli Council, Dar-ul-Uloom Deoband, Tablighi Jamaat, Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind and All India Organisation of Imams of Mosques among others.
The letter asks the ulema to "issue a fatwa declaring that India was not Dar-ul-Harb", i.e. a country against which Muslims must launch a religious war, rather "India was Dar-ul-Aman, a land of peace where all Muslims can practise and propagate their religion uninterrupted".
Certainly, the Laskhar-e-Taiba, in its writing and speeches by Hafiz Mohammed Saeed, has declared on numerous occasions that its goal was to reclaim the Islamic lands of India — apart from Kashmir, this would include Hyderabad, Junagadh etc. This was the inspiration behind the name Deccan Mujahideen, a front for LeT. India, according to many Islamist leaders, is a legitimate jihadi target.
In their vitriolic emails, the Indian Mujahideen, which claimed responsibility for the Delhi and Ahmedabad blasts, had also used the reference of scriptures to justify attacks against Indians.
"We are expecting the said organisations to respond to this appeal in a positive manner. We firmly believe that till the time Islamic leaders do not condemn religion inspired violence, terrorism in this country will not come to an end," Singhal said. "If Islam is a religion of peace, as they propagate, then we expect them to issue a fatwa clearing these views," he added.
Deoband on its part held an Anti-Terror conference on 25th Feb 2008. While it said all the right things, the terror campaign continued unabated across the sub-continent and culminated into 26/11 attacks in Mumbai. Looks like the message of Deoband ulemas reached the English daily readers and secular polity and not the terrorists coming out of Deobandi madrassas and certainly not to the ulemas aligned to them in Pakistan.
It has been asked before by others. Why is the DEOBAND not issuing a direct Fatwa against most active terrorist Organizations of South Asia Like Hizbul Mujahideen,Lashkar-e-Jhangvi,Lashkar-e-Taiba ,Sipah sahaba, Do the Darul Uloom Deoband want us to belive that these are engaged in Just Violence or These Outfits are not terrorist Outfits?
If Deoband is against terrorism then why are its books banned in Pakistan? And the question is whether these books are available in India or are they banned here too? The list of banned Deobandi books in Pakistan are:
Seraat-i-Mustaqeem written by Syed Ahmed Shaheed (Deoband), published by Islami Academy, Lahore. Taqviat-ul-Wmaan written by Syed Ahmed Shaheed (Deoband) published by Al-Maktab Al Shifa Sheesh Mahal Road, Lahore. Shia Aur Hazrat Ali written by Maulana Kaleemullah Rabbani (Deoband) published by Haq Nawaz Shaheed Library, Sargodha. Ikhtilaf-i-Ummat aur Siraat-i-Mustaqeem written by Maulana Mohammad Yousuf Ludhianvi (Deoband) published by Maktab Ludhanvia. Miraj-i-Sahabiat Bajawab Miyar Sahabit written by Maulana Mehar Mohammad (Deoband) published by Tahaffuze Namoos-i-Sahaba, Pakistan. Tohfa Imamia written by Hafiz Mehar Mohammad Mianwali (Deoband) published by Maktab Usmania Bin Hafiz Jee Mianwali. Allama Ziaur Rehman Farooqi Shaheed Hayat-o-Khidmat written by Sanaullah Saad Shuja Abadi (Deoband) published by Maktaba Bukhari Liayari Town, Karachi.
Given the scale of Deobandi influence in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, one would expect BJP - the Hindutva party to champion the case against such a divisive influence of Deoband. Is this the case?
BJP - the Hindutva champion states WE SHOULD BE PROUD OF DEOBAND!
In cases where national integration is involved, INDIA has never seen bi-partisan support. In a shockingly cynical approach the BJP sought to turn the tables on Congress over the administrative reforms committee report which, according to the saffron party, ‘blacklisted’ Darul Uloom Deoband and demanded an apology from the grand old party in this regard.
BJP national general secretary Vinay Katiyar said there was no question of banning the Islamic seminary and said, "We should be proud that we have Deoband like Islamic centre, which gives religious direction to the rest of the world."
Quoting from the second administrative reforms report submitted by senior Congress leader Virappa Moily, he alleged, "On page 27 and 28, this report has blacklisted the Darul Uloom and accused the seminary of having contacts with terrorists and Pakistani leaders involved in anti-India activities."
BuA: Wonder what the BJP lovers in this forum have to say on this?
Hoodbhoy writes in Saudi – isation of Paksitan: Many village mosques are now giant madrassas that propagate hard-line Deobandi beliefs through oversized loudspeakers. They are bitterly opposed to Barelvis, Shias and other sects, who they do not regard as Muslims. The Punjabis, who were far more liberal towards women than the Pukhtuns, are now beginning to take a line resembling that of the Taliban. Hanafi law has begun to prevail over tradition and civil law, as is evident from the recent decisions of the Lahore High Court.
In Pakistan’s lower-middle and middle classes lurks a grim and humourless Saudi-inspired revivalist movement that frowns on any and every expression of joy and pleasure.
Left unchallenged, this education will produce a generation incapable of co-existing with anyone except strictly their own kind. The mindset it creates may eventually lead to Pakistan’s demise as a nation state.”
BuA: Hold that thought enunciated by Hoodbhoy. He directly accuses Deoband for producing “students = talibs” from its madrassas that are incapable of co-existing with anyone except strictly with their own kind. Hoodbhoy then directly places the onus of Pakistan’s demise as a nation state on Deoband. But then this is what Deoband wants in the first place – for them as stated before in this article – “that Muslims recognise only the religious frontiers of their Ummah and not the national frontiers.” Hence what are the chances of Deobandi students giving respect to the borders of India? As it is we are seeing cases of beheadings in West Bengal being carried out by illegal Muslim immigrants from Bangladesh – this will slowly become the norm as the political landscape changes in India and Deobandi politics and ethos seeps in.
WEST BENGAL, INDIA
News 1: Deccan Herald – Hindu man beheaded for marrying a Muslim girl
News 2: Hindustan Times – Hindu man set on fire for marrying a Muslim girl
Please note that is happening in a Hindu majority country where supposedly Hindus comprise 80% of the population !!
No wonder the anti-India Dukhtaran-e-Millat (Daughters of Faith) leader Asiya Andrabi places so much faith on a Deobandi institution and in Azamgarh.
In an earlier article titled 900% growth of Muslim population, I wrote:
Let us look at India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. Even though Bangladesh was part of Pakistan in 1947, for reasons of statistics, I am taking it as a separate country. I will show the population that was there in 1947 and expected population of these countries in 2050. All figures taken from World Bank.
PAKISTAN: Population in 1947 = 30 million. Expected Population in 2050 = 300 million. A 900% growth over 103 years.
BANGLADESH: Population in 1947 = 32 million. Expected Population in 2050 = 280 million. A 775% growth over 103 years.
INDIA: Population in 1947 = 345 million. Expected Population in 2050 = 1630 million. A mere 373% growth over 103 years.
Both Pakistan and Bangladesh have overwhelmingly Islamic population, hence growth is wholly attributed to them.
In case of India, there is a difference of Islamic population growth rate and the Hindu population growth rate. Muslims in India accounted for 9.9% of India’s total population in 1951, 10.8% in 1971, 11.3% in 1981, 12.1% in 1991. (CENSUS FIGURES - ACTUAL FIGURE HIGHER).
Let us look at the scientific data, and try to figure out when India’s muslims become 25% of India’s total population. Will come to why this 25% is important.
Total Indian Population in 1991 = 816 million.
Indian Muslim Population in 1991 = 101 million (12.1% of total).
% Increase in Total Population since 1981 = 23.8
Increase in Muslim Population since 1981 = 32.8
We now make a few rough, order-of-magnitude calculations of the numbers involved and their actual consequences. Using t for time, with origin at 1991, T for total Indian population and M for the population of Indian Muslims, the relevant exponential equations are:
T(t)=T(0)exp(0.24t), with T(0)=816mil
M(t)=M(0)exp(0.24t), with M(0)=101mil
Our first calculation is based on the admittedly ad-hoc assumption that India can't support a population more than double the present one. The time for population to double is obtained by solving T(t)=2T(0), and we get t=2.89. Since we are measuring time in decades, this is about 30 years. Now we find that M(2.89)=262mil, while the total will double to 1632mil, and so the Muslim fraction will be only about 16%.
Now let us look at what it would take for the Muslim fraction to reach 25%. The relevant equation is:
Solving for t, we get t=7.81, which is about 80 years i.e. 2070.
It is reliably argued (IN BOARDROOMS) that when the Muslim population of India will reach 25% of the total population, there will be another partition of India.
Back to the present article and the bottom line: As Deoband tries to get into the political mainstream of India - imagine India being led by a Deobandi constituted political party?
The enemy has more often come by guile and not force. Many a door has been opened not by threat of violence but by the lucre of “greed”. And politicians falling prey to the lucre of “vote bank politics” are firmly and squarely anti-national elements.
After all BJP supports the Deoband - why do we need to worry?
Jamiat Ulema i Islam (JUI) is Pakistan's main organization in the Deobandi school. Out of JUI came two terror organizations: the Sipah-e-Sahaba Pakistan (SSP) and Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ), which is widely considered to be the armed wing of the Sipah-e-Sahaba, despite official SSP denials.
DEOBAND CALLED JINNAH - KAFIR E AZAM
They were against the partition of India and called Jinnah Kafir-e-Azam.
