PAKISTAN ARMY & TALIBAN ARE INTERTWINED IN THE HADITHS OF GHAZWATUL HIND (Part 2 of 3)
Pakistan had 30 million population in 1947 and in 2008 it has close to 160 million. In 2050 it will have 300 million – making it grow 900% in 100 years. With limited infrastructure, weak social and health facilities and hardly any new jobs, how will this huge population exist? Keep in mind that a whopping 40% of the men in Pakistan are being educated in unaffiliated madrassas (religious schools) that are spreading hatred and bigotry – the creators of Taliban. It is also from these religious schools that Pakistan pulls in its armed forces – after all it is the largest employer in Pakistan. Most of these madrassas are Deobandi – a fact discussed in part 1 of the article. The land mass of Pakistan is not increasing, neither is the fertility of the land to feed the army of mouths that are being produced in Pakistan.
Logically one can therefore ask – how does Pakistan aim to keep its hungry mouths content? How to stave off riots, discontentment and anger from unemployed youths? Add to that the fact that Pakistan is essentially at one end a feudal set up, run by the Punjabi majority and riding rough shod over the aspirations of their Sindi, Baluchi, Pushtun, Shias of Northern Region counterparts and on the other Pakistan Army essentially a Punjabi set up ready for coup anytime its interests are threatened and you have a recipe for a civil break-up.
It is RELIGION – the biggest binding force where one can find succour from bad times, ill health and an unquestioning faith in the Almighty that will help them gloss over the decay, unemployment and decline in standards of living in their midst. There will be some elite schools and voices of reason – but they will be suppressed by the vast majority of these poorly fed, poorly read indoctrinated warriors of Allah. Kashmir used to bind Pakistan together, it has an emotional appeal even today, but not enough to bind the country together.
Hence the forces of Taliban – which were built by ISI – are now in control of 2/3 of area of Pakistan and are slowly advancing to the cities to take control of Pakistan – aided and abetted by Pakistan Army and ISI. While Islamization of Pakistan Army and state started with Gen. Zia, it was Nawaz Sharif that tried to bring in Sharia by the 15th Amendment during his rule. It is to be noted that Pakistan Army, the ISI and Taliban all want the same thing – that Sharia be used all over Pakistan. With civil society in Pakistan trying to move on liberal democratic norms, free press and judiciary based on courts and English laws – it is these very qualities that Pakistan Army and Taliban want to muzzle.
Bringing the religious renaissance in Pakistan courtesy the Pakistan Army & ISI. The citings of Hadiths are necessary to tie in the concept - so excuse me if brevity has to be sacrificed at the altar of reason.
Syed Saleem Shahzad writing in Asia Times Online states: Many Muslims believe that ancient Khorasan - which covers parts of modern-day Afghanistan, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Iran, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan - is the promised land from where they will secure the first victory in the end-of-time battle in which the final round, according to their beliefs, will be fought in Bilad-i-Sham (Palestine- Israel-Lebanon-Syria).
The geographical borders of Bilad-i-Sham-Khorasan extend from Samarkand in Uzbekistan to the small Malakand division in the northern fringe of Pakistan's North-West Frontier Province (NWFP) that includes the militant-dominated Swat Valley.
The ancient Khurasan / Khorasan was the last eastern province of the Persian Empire. Khorasan, in Persian, means the “land of the sunrise”, a natural synonym for East.
In modern day world the ancient Khorasan is divided into five central Asian countries i.e.
1. Iran 2. Afghanistan 3. Tajikistan 4. Turkmenistan 5. Uzbekistan
The largest part of the ancient Khorasan is in Afghanistan today. The present day cities of these modern countries would give a better idea of the geographical map of the ancient Khurasan. These cities include:
1. Nishapur and Tus in Iran. 2. Herat, Balkh, Ghazni and Kabul in Afghanistan 3. Khujand and Panjakent in Tajikistan 4. Merv and Sanjan in Turkmenistan 5. Samarqand and Bukhara in Uzbekistan
Ghulam Mohammad Ghubar, an ethnic Tajik scholar and historian from Afghanistan, talks of Proper Khorasan and Improper Khurasan in his book titled “Khurasan”. According to him, Proper Khurasan contained regions lying between Balkh (in the East), Merv (in the North), Sijistan (in the South), Nishapur (in the West) and Herat, known as The Pearl of Khurasan, in the center. While Improper Khurasan’s boundaries extended to Kabul and Ghazni in the East, Balochistan and Zabulistan in the South, Transoxiana and Khwarezm in the North and Damaghan and Gurgan in the West.
Khorasan plays an important role in the Islamic prophecies of end times.
Narrated by Hazrat Abdullah bin Masood (RA) that Prophet (SAW) said: "A Nation will come from the east with black flags and they will ask for some “Khair” (because of them being needy) but the people will not give them, then, they will fight and win over those people (who did not give them what they asked). Now the people will give them what they asked for but they will not accept it until they will hand it over to a person from my progeny who will fill this earth with justice just as it was previously filled with oppression and tyranny. So if anyone of you finds this nation (i.e. from the east with black flags) then you must join them even if you have to crawl over ice”
Geographically there are only three Muslim countries, today, in exact east of Saudi Arabia i.e. Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan. So it becomes easy to establish that whoever this army of black flags is, it belongs to one or more of these three countries.
Pakistan and ISI created Taliban to conform to the Hadiths to play around with. This has to be understood. To those who think this is far fetched – all I ask is to read on and then you can wait for events to unfold and see the truth as it happens or is made to happen.
Who are these warriors from the East? According to various Hadths:
1. They will come from the East
2. They will be from the race of Bani Ishaq/Al-e-Haroon/Bani-Israel or Nation of liberated slaves
3 They will come from the historical geographical region of Ancient Khorasan.
4. Their Leader will be wearing QUTWANI CLOAKS.
5. They will be from the tribe of QAIS (or KASH)
6. They will be from a poor Nation.
7. They are from a place with cold climate.
8. They will be from the TALIQAN( a city in Afghanistan ) region
Pakistan realized that Pushtuns and Kashmiris are a race that fulfills all these requirements – and thus gave them the black flags to authenticate the sayings in the Hadiths – thus giving the movement a historical almost Biblical force. After all, Taliban are told that they are they are the chosen people of the book.
And this is what Hamid Gul means when he states: “Pakistan and Islam are tied to each other. Pakistan was not formed for economic gains or other petty reasons rather it was formed to lead the world after providing a practical and workable Islamic model to govern people. No superpower can change destiny.” After all Hamid Gul – the Godfather of Taliban and Lashkar e Taiba – wants to be in charge of this destiny that he mentions.
The Taliban hail from the Pashtun ethnicity and have traditionally used two flags, a white flag with a black Shahada (Kalma) embossed for their government and diplomatic purposes and a reversal of this i.e. a black flag with a white Shahada embossed for their military. These types of black flags are also vividly seen across the tribal Pashtun areas that are now reportedly under the control of Pakistani Taliban.
SIDE NOTE: THE UK CONNECTION TO THE BLACK FLAGS:
Hizb-ut-Tahrir (HEADQUARTERED IN UK): Hizb-ut-Tahrir an International Sunni pan-Islamist political party whose goal is to unite all the Muslim countries to form a united Islamic state or Caliphate. Hizb-ut-Tahrir also boasts a black flag with a white Shahada embossed on it. Though a non-military organization, it has a vast political following.
Tableeghi Jama’at (HEADQUARTERED IN UK): It is a Muslim missionary and revival movement, also having the same black flag. Many Pakistani cricketers are members of Tableeghi Jama’at (this to show that these things are not confined only to the poorer sections of society but has now permeated the very fabric of Pakistan cutting across socio-economic classes (SECs).
Of all the points mentioned above, point 2 is most debatable and this will be done in Part 3 of the article. A short synopsis here.
According to Hadith: Abu Huraira (RA) reported Allah’s Apostle (SAW) saying: You have heard about a city; the one side of which is in the land and the other is in the sea (Constantinople). They said: Allah’s Messenger, Yes. There upon he said: The last hour would come unless seventy thousand persons from Bani Ishaq would attack it. When they would land there, they will neither fight with weapons nor would show arrows but would only say: There is no god but Allah and Allah is the Greatest, that one side of it would fall. Thaur (one of the narrators) said: I think that he said: The part by the side of the ocean. Then they would say for the second time: There is no god but Allah and Allah is the Greatest that the second side would also fall, and they would say: There is no god but Allah and Allah is the Greatest, that the gates would be opened for them and they would enter therein and, they would be collecting spoils of war and distributing them amongst themselves that a noise would be heard and it would be said: Verily, Dajjal has come. And thus they would everything there and would turn to him.
How will the leader of Black Flags that will rise from Khorasan carry with him soldiers that are children of Israel to fight in Israel? This apparent paradox is solved when one realizes that these children of Israel are no longer Jews but are converted into Muslims.
In Jewish popular culture, the ten tribes disappeared from history, leaving only the tribes of Benjamin, Judah and Levi to become the ancestors of modern day Jews.Today, many ethnic groups claim descent from the lost tribes of Israel. Let us see who among them is located in the geographical Khurasan and are Muslims as well.
1. Bene-Ephraim in Southern India – are Jews.
2. Bnei-Menashe in Northeast India – are Jews.
3. Beta Israel in Ethiopia – are Jews.
4. Persian and Bukharan Jews in Isfahan, Iran – are Jews.
5. Igbo of Nigeria – are Jews.
6. Samaritans in Israel – are Jews
7. The Lemba tribe in South Africa – religious practice similar to Jews.
8. House of Israel in Ghana – are Jews
9. Pashtuns or Pathans in Afghanistan/Pakistan – are Muslims
10. Kashmiris in Indo-Pakistan – are Muslims
11. Jews of Kaifeng – are Jews
In all these ethnic groups, there are only two groups that are Muslims and only one group that is geographically present in Khurasan i.e. the Pathans of Afghanistan and Pakistan and Kashmiris. The only group that is warlike, undefeated and untamed throughout the course of history, staunch in religious fervor, filled with honor and pride and is unforgiving of its enemy; one that will fight its enemy until one of them is dead are the Pathans or Pushtuns.
How and why Pustuns are converted Jews is, as stated, will be Part 3. Suffice it to mention here: The exiled Afghan Royal (in Rome) family also traces its roots to ancient Israel, the tribe of Benjamin specifically.
Hence, we are now clear as to why & how Pakistan Army & ISI have created the Taliban? It fits the Hadiths.
What are the two ultimate goals as stated in the Hadiths?
ISRAEL & PALESTINE:
Abu Huraira (RA) says that Rasul-Ullah (SAW) said: (Armies carrying) black flags will come from Khurasan, no power will be able to stop them and they will finally reach Eela (Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem) where they will erect their flags.
The destruction of the Dome of the Rock (or the Aqsa Mosque) is the final requirement for the warriors from Khorasan to launch into a war with Israel that will see them win and put their black flags on the place where Al Aqsa mosque once stood.
INDIA: GHAZWATUL HIND:
The Hadiths that deal with Ghazwatul Hind has been declared as WEAK and a leading religious scholar has stated that any Muslim who believes in it is believing in something false. However the beauty of Islam is that no Hadith can be termed as false or untrue, only weak. Try telling that these Hadiths are false to a Taliban !!
The Conquest of Hind (INDIA) Prior to the Day of Judgement
At-Tuwaijiri's Ithaf al-Jama'a, Vol. 1, pp. 365-366.
Thawban - may Allah be pleased with him - that the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam) said, "Two groups of my umma Allah has protected from the hellfire: a group that will conquer India and a group that will be with 'Isa b. Maryam - 'alaihimas- salat was-salam." Reported Ahmad, an-Nisa'i, and at-Tabarani.
Na'im b. Hammad in al-Fitan reports that Abu Huraira - may Allah be pleased with him - said that the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam) mentioned India and said, "A group of you will conquer India, Allah will open for them [India] until they come with its kings chained - Allah having forgiven their sins - when they return back [from India], they will find Ibn Maryam in Syria."
While Abu Huraira said, "The Messenger of Allah (sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam) promised us the conquest of India. If I was to come across that I will spend my soul and wealth. If I am killed then I am among the best of martyrs. And if I return then I am Abu Huraira the freed." Reported by Ahmad, an-Nisa'i, and al-Hakim.
In another narration reported by Ahmad, Abu Huraira says, "I was told by my khalil, the truthful and believed in, the Messenger of Allah (sallallahu 'alaihi wa sallam) that there will be in this umma an expedition sent to Sind and Hind (India) ... ." The rest of the narration is the same but it has the following addition, "... then I will be released from the Hellfire." At-Tuwaijri remarks this addition explains what is meant by "the freed" above.
"An ansin raziallahu anhu qaala: "qaala rasoolallahe sallalaahu alaihe wassallam isaabatun taghzul hinda wa hayi takoonu ma'al mahdismohu Ahmadu"
( that Prophet Mohammad said, A group will struggle in India, and will be with the Mahdi, and the mahdi's name will be "Ahmad") -rawaahul Bokhari, fee tareekhehi
"qaala rasoolallahe sallalaahu alaihe wassallama yakhruju naasun minal mashriq, fa yootinoonal mahdi ya'ani sultaanahu"
( that prophet mohammad said, Such people will come out from the east, who will make way for the Mahdi, who will be their king )
- narrated by:
1) Abu daud, volume 2, baab khuroojul mahdi
2) Ibne maja, egyptian, page 519
3) bahaarul anwaar book 13 page 21
"Qala rasoolullah e sallalaaho alaihe wassalama isabatana min ummatihra humallaha minunnaare isaabatun taghzulhinda wa isaabatun takoonu ma'a eesa ibne maryama ilaihe"
( that prophet mohammad said, There are two groups in my "ummah" whom allah has freed from fire. One which performs struggle in India, and the one who is with the messiah )
- narrated by:
1) nassai volume page 52, baab ghazwatul hind
2) masand e ahmad ben hanbal, volume 5, page 78
Hence, India and Israel are in direct and immediate focus and one can hear this from Al-Qaeda, Taliban incessantly. Of course US is added to this apparent axis of evil according to Islam.
At the beginning I had discussed the growing Paksitani population and it being in no position to absorb the growing numbers unless it does one of two things:
1. Ensure that population growth is reduced through family planning initiatives and help democracy grow that will attract more industries into Pakistan thus help in employment generation. Better schools to retain and attract talent.
2. Ensure that population growth is thrust elsewhere. Enforce religion as a binding force that will keep military in perpetual power. To the east lies the vast and prosperous land of India, fertile and has a large ethnic Muslim population that can be merged. To the north are oil fields of Central Asia – and these are Muslim nations but do not have strong military or able rulers.
Since family planning is haraam (forbidden) in Islam (and this can be seen in their growth rate in host countries where they live, always outstripping the indigenous growth of the host nation, and also from the FATWA given by Deoband), I am betting my bottom dollar on the second option.
Asma Jehangir, Pervez Hoodboy , the secular apologists and indeed well meaning people around the world will pray for the first option – but I am sorry to state that this will never happen.
Pakistan’s military – the sole custodians of the state and entity of Pakistan do not think India can be a friend and that the lands of India (too fertile to let go) and waters of Kashmir are to be wrested back one way or another. Kargil was an attempt by Gen Musharraf to wrest Srinagar – and the latest incessant terrorist intrusion is an attempt by Gen Kayani to wrest Srinagar. This will continue unabated till Pakistan is made to understand thtat doing so is detrimental to its health. But Pakistan is in poor health and it does not care much – it is already in the top 10 failed nations of the world.
The US and Western countries are trying valiantly to make Pakistan (Military) understand that India is not their enemy – the Taliban are. I mean, are they kidding? The search for moderate Taliban is as elusive a concept as say a Tooth Fairy!
Will Pakistan Army that created Taliban fear it? It can tighten the screws on the movement anytime it wants and choke off its supply lines, men and logistics. The surrender at SWAT was not a “deliberate” loss for Pakistan Army, but a “deliberate” breather for Pakistan Army and letting Taliban rest and regroup. The more Pakistan Army were to fight its creations (Taliban) under the influence of America, the more chaos Pakistan will bring on itself internally. The choices facing US / NATO forces are Hobson’s choices. If India keeps quiet and bows down to the pressure of the Americans to start a dialogue with Pakistan without it taking any action on 26/11 – PAKISTAN wins !
Hence, onto Taliban and Talibanization of Pakistan. Hence the complicity between Paksitan Army, ISI and Taliban and hence Pakistan is not going to cut off its ties with the Taliban.
The reality is that both – the Taliban and the jihadis on one side and the Pakistan Army, have the same slogan — jihad fi’sbillah – jihad in the name of Allah.
INDIA will have to think of Pakistan as a radicalized Taliban nation in the making. The children in Pakistan are getting indoctrinated at a very early age - the Deobandi teaching tells them that they cannot even sit with Shias to have meals - what will they think of Jews / Christians / Hindus? The hate teaching is deliberately perpetuated.
While the global civilized world is talking of working together, teaching assimilation and respect for other cultures, Pakistan is teaching its young hate and bigotry.
A survey amongst Pakistan Army on their thoughts on Talibanization of Pakistan will surely throw up interesting results. Terror wins in Pakistan hands down - after all it is state sanctioned.
