TRIVIA: Which was the only country that objected to Pakistan's entry into the UN? Answer at the end of this article.
Pakistan is trying to manipulate the Hadiths to further its nefarious agenda. Having seen that democracy is not the binding force, the military is loathe to hand over power to civil society and watch in horror as free press undermines their illegal rule. This free press has not shown any leniency while reporting on the greed for lucre, thus taking the sheen off military rulers. Even the independent judiciary with its incessant probe into missing persons, questioning financial deals involving the military have become an anathema of sorts to the military. (Note: Pervez Musharraf made money in the Pakistan Steel Mills deal - more on that in another article.)
The Pakistan Army in turn has created the Taliban (and of course the myriad terror organizations) - the brainwashed warriors of Allah – to subdue civil society, wage irregular warfare in neighbouring countries, gain strategic depth in Afghanistan, keep the Indian Army bogged down in Kashmir and essentially keep the Pakistan Army in a position of permanent power.
While the military logic was sound, the Pakistan Army itself got deeply mired in religion. Gen Zia started the Islamization of forces and this has come a full circle today. The Pakistani forces, the ISI are today more radicalized than ever before – the distinction between Taliban and ISI is perhaps erased forever.
As I have said before, democracy gave greater voice to people and people in Pakistan voiced it to show the utter disregard the Punjabi population was having on the rest of the Pakistanis – Balochis, Sindhis etc and Sunni extremists over the Shia population. The Ahmediyya community were massacred in Pakistan and are considered non-Muslims in Pakistan.
Sufi Mohammad has categorically said (Mar 18, 2009)that democracy is not permissible under Sharia. And I have stated before that Nawaz Sharif is committed to bringing Sharia over Pakistan, if and when he is elected with a comfortable majority.
Hamid Gul mentioned in the TV interview given in the previous article: “previous wars with India were fought without the fervor of jehad. But the next war will be a real war and our warriors and mujahids who will all come together in case India attacks Pakistan, and this fight will be fought with utmost religious fervor under the aegis of a jehad.”
The role of religion in warfare is an old subject. It is well known that invoking religion gives the highest self-belief to a warrior to fight in the just war – so that he fights without care and beyond patriotism.
Pakistan is trying to manufacture jehad for its “war of wars” by further manufacturing these soldiers of Allah – the Taliban – giving them the “as has been mentioned in Hadith headgear and flag” black flag.
I had briefly mentioned the Hadith of Ghazwatul Hind – which I will carry in greater detail in part 2. In this part (part 1) I will deal with Pakistan’s real intent and the main points concerning the coming of the Mahdi.
ISLAM according to PAKISTAN.
While we have been told that Islam literally means “peace” and it is forbidden for any Muslim to forcibly convert a non-Muslim into a Muslim, yet we see that most Islamic countries are in midst of infighting, and there have been forced conversions over the ages and it continues till this day.
DEOBAND IDEOLOGY BINDS PAKISTAN ARMY, ISI, TALIBAN AND TERROR GROUPS TOGETHER:
Most of the Pakistani Military, ISI, Taliban and terror organizations belong to the Deobandi school – President Musharraf himself is a product and he deftly hides his religious fascism behind western suits.
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!”
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”.
So what is Deoband teaching the Talibs? After all, this is the source – the fountain of knowledge and succor for the militants.
MUST NOTE AND REMEMBER: Jamaat-i-Islaami - JeI (FOUNDED BY DEOBAND) initially opposed the creation of Pakistan for fear that Muhhamad Ali Jinnah was creating another secular state like Turkey, though they eventually accepted the partition.
Note: For all his love for Ataturk, Musharraf is a product of Deoband and one must also remember that Musharraf’s candidacy was forwarded to Gen Zia by Jamaat I Islami (he was the blue eyed fundamentalist to the JeI – and he can never espouse to be a secularist – and if one views his tenure one sees that the militants and extremists only gained in strength in his tenure. If he did not target the Red Mosque under intense pressure, he would never have been target of assassins).
Ray Harris wrote an excellent piece “The myth of Islam as a religion of peace": and makes the following points:
Muslims have said that 'Islam' means peace, or that Islam is a religion of peace. Unfortunately this is just plain wrong.
Islam is derived from the Arabic aslama, which means 'surrender' (to the will of Allah). Muslim means 'one who has surrendered to the will of Allah'. And unfortunately, violence, under certain conditions, is a legitimate means to affect that surrender.
In saying that Islam means peace Islamic apologists are simply indulging in word play in order to put as positive a spin on things as they can. It is an attempt to argue that Islam promotes non-violence. As we will see such a peace is only available to one who has first surrendered to Allah and it is denied to those who refuse to surrender. Mohammed would sign his treaty offers with the words, aslem taslam, 'surrender and you will be safe'.
The Taliban were the students of Deobandi madari. Salafi money has gone to support the madari and the war in Afghanistan saw a coalition of Salafi and Deobandi jihadi.
Sayyid Mawdudi, a scholar of Deobandism and founder of the Pakistan party Jemaat e-Islamiya (party of Islam). He puts it this way:
Islam wants the whole earth and does not content itself with only a part thereof. It wants and requires the entire inhabited world. It does not want this in order that one nation dominates the earth and monopolizes its sources of wealth, after having taken them away from one or more other nations. No, Islam wants and requires the earth in order that the human race altogether can enjoy the concept and practical program of human happiness, by means of which God has honoured Islam and put it above the other religions and laws. In order to realize this lofty desire, Islam wants to employ all forces and means that can be employed for bringing about a universal all-embracing revolution. It will spare no efforts for the achievement of this supreme objective. This far-reaching struggle that continuously exhausts all forces and this employment of all possible means are called jihad.
Hamid Gul, Gen Pervez Musharraf, Gen Zia ul Haq, the Taliban and terror groups like Laskhar e Taiba (LeT), Lashkar e Jhangvi (LeJ), Jaish e Mohammad (JeM) and TNSM of Sufi Mohammad are all followers of Salafi / Deobandi school of thought.
Hamid Gul very recently stated: (Mar 28th 2009) “We should be ready to lead the world and for this, we need ideological educational institutions," he said, maintaining that there were lot of schools pushing students against the ideology of Islam and Pakistan.
In such circumstances, there was need for ideological institutions across Pakistan, he underlined. He said 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. He said his aim of life was to promote this idea and he was not retired or tired and the enemies of Pakistan knew it well. "Pakistan and Islam are tied to each other," he concluded.
How will Pakistan lead the world? How is Pakistan and Islam tied to each other that will bring this about?
The first steps have been accomplished. Taliban has been created. It is being armed and trained to fight wars in all terrain. Divisions of Pakistan army regulars are “deserting” (officially) and joining the ranks of Taliban or various terrorist organizations (LeT etc).
Second comes the religious indoctrination that goes before they become warriors – that is being provided by the Deobandi madrassas.
Third is being part of “The Holy Book” by erasing their atrocities under the garb of “The Holy War”.
In this part let us look at the End Times & Islam and coming of the Mahdi.
Mahdi is one who leads people to truth. He will have 3 basic tasks.
1. Overthrow of philosophical system that deny God and supports Atheism
2. Putting an end to practices that are not part of the religion but are portrayed so.
3. Revealing true Islamic moralities based on Quran starting with his own nation.
Note: Interesting if you see the following:
a. Attempt by Taliban to enforce Sharia where it rules (Afghanistan it tried and now Swat, Buner and gradually to the whole of Pakistan)
b. Mahdi is a more user-friendly term for the Shias than for the Sunnis, yet Pakistan saw recent cases of “false prophets”
c. FALSE PROPHET, YUSUF ALI KAZZAB, (a must read article for those who have not and see the intense hatred it created if you see the comments) who was arrested and sentenced to death by the Lahore High Court and then murdered in Kot Lakhpat jail by a fellow prisoner - this guy Zaid Hamid was known as ZAID ZAMAN at that time and was the KHALIFAH of that Kazzab.
d. Mr ZZ Hamid has been promoted to a position of "security analyst" with ISPR. Now, ISPR -Inter Services Public Relations Directorate is the official mouthpiece of the Pakistan Army. If ZZ Hamid speaks - one can assume he is speaking on behalf and with the blessings of Pakistan Army.
e. Interesting Zaid Hamid talks of greater Pakistan which consists of parts of India.
BuA: (my comments I write as BuA – Bengal under Attack) : Personally I feel Pakistan has abandoned the search for Mahdi and it is a controversial subject and was proving difficult to enforce. The followers of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad – self professed Mahdi, known as Ahmeddiyas face persecution in Pakistan. The last one – Yusuf Kazzab – met with a gory death. Yet Kazzab’s khalifah – Zaid Hamid is also has a website: www.brasstacks.pk.
However, to better understand what was going on in the minds of Pakistani Generals – it might be better to write this article and then go to the next part (Part 2) which they are implementing now. The “famed warriors of Allah wearing black turbans and with black flags rising from the land of Khorasan.” The search for the leader of this famed warriors is on.
Hence what are the incidents that fortell the coming of the Mahdi?
1. The halting of the Euphrates.
God’s messenger said, “The Hour will not come to pass before the river Euphrates dries up to unveil the mountain of gold for which people will fight. 99 out of 100 will die fighting and every man amongst them will say “Perhaps, I may be the one to be alive.”
Explained by Islamic scholars as : In 1975, a dam was built that cut the flow of Euphrates. Because of this, the land became as valuable as gold. Also as per satellite photos there are piles of gold in Euphrates’ river bed. Many people lost their lives fighting for this land as well as well gold in the river bed.
BuA : This analysis is so far fetched that it defies logic. However, how are we going to tell the foot soldiers the virtues of logic. Imagine this logic being given in a feverish sermon by Hafeez Saeed to his LeT cadres – I can bet my bottom dollar all of them will be sitting enthralled at his oratory and will believe every single word. Hence, from next point on, I am not giving any analysis but asking the reader (you) to place yourself as the brain washed, blinkers on Taliban listening in.
2. Two eclipses in Ramadan before the Mahdi emerges (both solar and lunar)
The occurrence of two eclipses before Ramadan is indeed a rare phenomena. Yet, it has occurred twice :
1981 : 17th July – Lunar eclipse and 31st July Solar eclipse
1982: 6th July – Lunar eclipse and 20th July Solar eclipse.
3. Before He comes, a comet spreading light will come from the East. The birth of that star will follow the eclipse of Sun & Moon.
Muslim scholars – Haley’s comet fit the bill and it travelled from East to west.
4. People will go to Hajj with no Imam at their head. When they descend into Mina, the tribes will savage each other like dogs and there will be great wars, to such an extent that feet will be covered in a lake of blood. There will be great sin right by Kaaba.
Muslim scholars point to Nov 21, 1979 when over 1000 people died during Hajj.
BuA: The group that took over the mosque was led by Saudi preacher Juhayman Al-Utaybi, a former corporal in the Saudi National Guard, and consisted of several hundred gunmen from many countries. It had the apocalyptic vision of a global clash of civilizations that would lead to the triumph of true Islam and the end of the world as we know it. The group abhorred the Saudi state and other Arab regimes as infidel, and bitterly objected to any Western presence in the Arabian Peninsula. The battle for the Grand Mosque started on November 20, 1979—at the first dawn of Islam's year 1400—and lasted precisely two weeks.
Saudi troops refused to fight in the holy shrine—and for that the royal family had to promise the clerics that it would reverse the slow modernization that had been occurring in the kingdom up until then. The royals fulfilled their promise. In the weeks after the siege ended, female newscasters were taken off television; the enforcement of the ban on alcohol became much more severe; and vast amounts of oil money started flowing into the clerics' Wahhabi proselytizing campaign around the world.
(Was this therefore stage managed to fulfill one of the prophecies?)
5. A fire will engulf you. That fire is currently extinguished in the valley called Berehut. People will be enfolded in that fire with terrible suffering. That fire will burn and destroy people and belongings. 8 days it will rage and the heat of the night will be fiercer than that of the morning. There will be lots of thunder and fire will reach the sky.
Muslim scholars: Berehut is the name of an oil well. And indeed it was set on fire during the Iraq Kuwait conflict and the fire did burn for 8 days and reach the sky with thunderous noise.
6. Before the appearance of Mahdi, widespread slaughter will come to pass and great strife will be seen, where innocents will be massacred.
Muslim scholars cite the death and destruction of life in WW I & II.
7. Inhabitants of Egypt will kill their rulers & abandon his commands.
1981: Anwar Sadat (Egypt) killed
BuA: The two eclipses also happened for the first time in 1981. Was this a coincidence or a forced occurrence ?
8. Pity poor Taliqan – a region in Afghanistan – that at that place are treasures of GOD. But they are not GOLD & SILVER but consists of people who have recognized GOD as they should have.
BuA: And voila – TALIBAN are born with the help of ISI & Pakistan ARMY .
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 flag) then you must join them even if you have to crawl over ice.
Geographically there are only three Muslim countries, today, precisely 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.
BuA: Voila – The war flag of Taliban is black.
Pakistan Army & ISI are the creators of Taliban and various other terror groups like LeT. They are children and hence slave to the doctrine of Deobandi teachings that talks of the coming of Mahdi, Ghazwatul Hind, Khorasan and the final wars. And as stated above, as per Deoband: Islam wants the whole earth and does not content itself with only a part thereof. And reiterating the point that as per the latest interview of Hamid Gul: “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. He said his aim of life was to promote this idea and he was not retired or tired and the enemies of Pakistan knew it well. "Pakistan and Islam are tied to each other.”
And US just cannot state the contacts ISI has with Taliban or even the terror organizations should cease. There are deep religious ties and Hadiths and DEOBAND schools that tie them up. It is a dangerous bond and a belief of “weak” Hadiths, but a belief that cannot be wished away.
Pakistan is blaming India now on the Lahore attacks on Sri Lankans. And credible reports are pouring in that Sirajuddin Haqqani network is about to take over Islamabad in concert with Baitullah Mehsud.
One cannot get closer than Haqqani network for the ISI. The best relation that ISI has is with the Haqqnani network. And if Taliban takeover of Pakistan is going to be orchestrated by the Haqqani network – then it is ISI driven. SIMPLE !
Pak Army Chief Gen. Ashfaq Kiyani is on tape referring to Maulvi Jalaluddin Haqqani’s Taliban as a “strategic asset.”
NSA started picking up intercepts that Pakistani raid parties were giving advance warning to the Talibans of their arrival. “It was like, ‘Hey, we’re going to hit your place in a few days, so if anyone important is there, you might want to tell them to scram.’” But, leave a few weapons around, Haqqani’s operatives were told, so that it would not look as if the Pakistani Army had come up with nothing. They needed a few trophies to bring back. “Oh, and they warned them that there would be a lot of smoke bombs and stuff, but they shouldn’t worry too much.”
Its not Taliban that is taking over Pakistan. It is Hamid Gul, ex-ISI stalwarts taking over Pakistan facilitated by Pakistan Army. The Pakistan Army is hardly giving any resistance to the “alleged threat of Taliban”. All stage managed !
Logically the next target should be the judiciary – after all Sharia cannot be enforced otherwise. The ISI-Pak Army-Taliban clique will want Sharia in Pakistan and they have Nawaz Sharif ready to do their bidding.
REPEAT NOTE: THE DREAM TO MAKE PAKISTAN INTO A STRICT ISLAMIC STATE WAS AGREED UPON BY SHARIF AND BROKERED BY HAMID GUL & OSAMA BIN LADEN.
NAWAZ SHARIF TO OSAMA: I LOVE JEHAD ! (CLICK HERE TO READ ARTICLE)
NAWAZ TRIED IMPOSING SHARIA IN 1998:
Pakistan can thank a few dogged senators in 1998 who blocked Nawaz Sharif’s 15th amendment bill which was to make Sharia Pakistan’s supreme law. Read this article in Jang newspaper - click here.
Excerpts from the above Jang article:
1. The introduction to the 15th amendment reads: "Whereas sovereignty over the entire universe belongs to Almighty Allah alone and the authority which He has delegated to the State of Pakistan through its people for being exercised through their chosen representatives within the limits prescribed by Him is a sacred trust."
2. The Holy Quran and Sunnah of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) shall be the supreme law of Pakistan.
When Hamid Gul, in the same interview cited above (Mar 28, 2009) states: No super power can change destiny - I hope you all get a sense of what destiny he is talking about.
Many readers have told me that Hamid Gul is a fruitcake - trust me the intelligence communities think of him as a very capable "fruitcake".
Mainstream media is going apoplectic with stories of Taliban encircling Islamabad and about to take over Pakistan. No where I am yet to see the simple logic - that this is all being orchestrated by Paksitan Army.
And as we speak, NEWSWEEK is breaking the story about BAITULLAH MEHSUD's ISI connections and hands of renegade ISI members (re: HAMID GUL & Co) in helping Mehsud assassinate Benazir Bhutto. Click here to read the story.
Next article on Ghazwatul Hind.
Answer to trivia: AFGHANISTAN.
Based on its objections to the Durand border, Afghanistan cast the sole vote against Pakistan's entry into the United Nations. From 1893 on, British India's and later Pakistan's policies toward Afghanistan have been greatly influenced by anxiety over the Afghans' claim to a ''Pashtunistan'' that would unite the Pashtuns of both countries and give Afghanistan easier access to the Indian Ocean.
