Threat to Indian Muslims by Tufail Ahmed




The ongoing saga of ISIS has gone away from the front page as it has been replaced by Ukraine and Gaza !.

Just because we are not reading about it means things are not happening.

This is going to be a real challenge for not the lady or the daddy but to our Modi !.

Chinese already have started cleaning & clamping up the border along PoK for terrorist entering their land.

Hope Modi and JetLee have something up their sleeves.

I'd hope we have more patriotic Desi's like Shri.Tufail and also Shri.Tarek Fatahji and others.

If you guys watch on Sun Tv Network of the Gaza demonstrations in GTA and Calgary it is scary.

Some guys have the audacity wearing the janitor uniform of TTC to warn on camera that he would chase and kill all the Jews in Canada and send them back to Israel, while another guy says that the Jewish should go back to Germany, Austria and Switzerland. While some other protestors are bashing up pro - Israeli demonstrators. The cops are merely watching like in India!.

Threat to Indian Muslims
By Tufail Ahmad Published: 30th July 2014 06:00 AM Last Updated: 30th July 2014 12:35 AM




India’s vibrant democratic experience over past six decades has been difficultly nurturing an open society for its people, but there are injurious intellectual streams in our midst which are radiating darkness among Indian Muslims. The disturbing case here is of Maulana Salman Al-Husaini Nadwi, an internationally recognised Islamic scholar who decided against this country’s collective wisdom to write a letter to greet Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, the leader of murderous jihadists who overran Iraq’s cities in June, butchered human beings in hundreds, demolished shrines revered by Shias and Sunnis alike, and expelled Christians from Mosul.

Al-Baghdadi is a terrorist who trained in the Taliban-ruled Afghanistan along with Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi, a slain chief of Al-Qaeda in Iraq. On June 29, Al-Baghdadi declared himself as the caliph of Muslims and demanded bai’yah (oath of fealty) from all as head of the Islamic State, formerly the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

Across the world, Al-Baghdadi is viewed by Muslims and non-Muslims as a terrorist whose forces are killing innocents. His terror outfit identifies India as one of its targets, incorporating it in an ISIS map of Khorasan, about which Prophet Muhammad prophesied that jihadists will rise from there and join the forces of Jesus who will be reborn in present-day Israel to proclaim global Islamic rule.

By writing the letter, Salman Nadwi has refused to see the present and clear danger to India; he thinks of himself as wiser than 1.25 billion Indians and numerous Islamic scholars across the world who have denounced Al-Baghdadi. In the letter sent via WhatsApp and later statements in Urdu and Hindi, Nadwi refers to Al-Baghdadi as Emir-ul-Momineen (Leader of Faithful Muslims) and prays — “May Allah protect you”, urges jihadist organisations in Syria to end their differences, speaks of “good news of victories” in Iraq and advocates that Muslims “abide by” the Emir-ul-Momineen “if he follows Allah’s sharia”; Nadwi appreciates the “united struggle by Iraq’s different jihadist organisations in making the revolution successful” against Iraq’s elected leader Nouri Al-Maliki; he dubs Al-Maliki as “the world’s biggest terrorist” for causing Shia-Sunni differences but praises Al-Baghdadi whose forces are killing Shias in hundreds, having declared them as infidels.

Indian media is silent, except for Urdu daily Aag, which brought the Nadwi issue on its front page. If a Muslim youth from Azamgarh had written this letter, he would be languishing in jail by now. In the US where a person can be arrested for contacting terrorists and in the UK where one can be jailed for downloading jihadist videos and literature from the internet, Nadwi would have been picked up by intelligence agencies for questioning, if not for outright prosecution.

However, being a known scholar at the Lucknow-based seminary Nadwatul Ulama, he enjoys freedom from law, especially since India doesn’t have updated legislation against radicalisation of youth for jihad.

Ashfaq Ahmad, who studied at Nadwatul Ulama and is now a professor of Arabic at the Assam University, says that Salman Nadwi has been known for his ideological support for Islamic groups and such letters may influence younger generations of Indian Muslims, especially hundreds of members of Jamiat-u-Shabab-il-Islam, an organisation of youth established by Nadwi. Meanwhile, a review of Nadwi’s Facebook wall reveals that his followers are lauding him and Al-Baghdadi, with one Muslim youth commenting: “do not worry, if something happens to you, Allah willing, we will set fire to the ocean too.”

It is also worrying that India’s Shia Muslim leadership, under Iran-backed cleric Maulana Kalb-e-Jawwad, is unable to grasp the threat to Indian Muslims from global jihadism originating from Iraq and Syria. Until now, terror attacks in Jammu & Kashmir and elsewhere in India could be traced to Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence and other terror groups backed by it, but an era of global jihad has stamped its footprint in India. Youth from Tamil Nadu went to Syria via Singapore to join the jihadists. Noted investigative journalist Praveen Swami recently revealed that four Muslims from Mumbai were among Shia pilgrims that went to Iraq where they joined the ISIS. Eighteen Indians have reportedly joined the jihadists in Iraq.

However, the Shia leadership cannot understand these developments or wants to join the conflict. Anjuman-e-Haideri, a Delhi-based Shia organisation, gave advertisements in Urdu dailies asking people to register to visit Iraq — apparently to volunteer as nurses, doctors and engineers to help Iraqi Shias, but they aim to defend holy shrines. Ali Mirza of Anjuman-e-Haideri has set plan to register one million people. One lakh registered; six thousand volunteers applied for Iraq visas. However, the volunteers do not view this trip as a humanitarian mission; for them it is an end-life journey. Haji Mirza Qasim Raza, a volunteer, said: “There is nothing that I will not do to protect Karbala… including laying down my life.” Zeeshan Haider, a youth, described his trip as “a religious duty”. Jahan Ara, a widow with failing eyesight, said: “there’s no better way to spend one’s last days”. Disturbingly, 25 percent of the volunteers are women. Kalb-e-Jawwad has backed women’s participation in battlefields, arguing: “There are misconceptions about Islam being very limiting for women”.

For Shia nurses, doctors and others, the best deed is to help the sick and elderly in India. A few hundred volunteers, if they want to go on a humanitarian mission, should visit as part of the Red Cross, not led by sectarian groups like Anjuman-e-Haideri. War has its own logic that sucks people into its arms. The risk is that Shia Muslims visiting from India could by recruited by Iran-backed terror groups like Hezbollah. Iran recently sent Afghan refugees to fight in Syria.

In a recent article, Pakistani author Ahmed Rashid warned: “the Islamic world will be plunged into a sectarian war of unimaginable dimensions” if the ISIS attacked holy cities of Karbala and Najaf.

Rashid also noted: “We can expect conflict between Sunni and Shia that could last for years to come. Already, there is an ominous rapid growth of Shia militias in Iraq.”

Youth wearing t-shirt with ISIS symbol held in Tamil Nadu
PTI Ramanathapuram, August 3, 2014 | UPDATED 18:27 IST



A 22-year-old youth was taken into custody on Sunday for questioning after a group photo of some youths wearing t-shirts with ISIS emblem appeared on a social networking site.

Abul Rahman has been taken into custody in connection with the photo which appeared during Ramazan period, Superintendent of Police P Mayilvahanan said.

However, Rahman told police that they did it to thank the ISIS for releasing Indian nurses from their captivity in strife-torn Iraq without harming them, the officer said.

Rahman also said they had only shared their gratefulness and happiness over the release of the nurses as ISIS was not a banned outfit in India, Mayilvahanan added.

He said the 'Q' branch and Intelligence Bureau are investigating the incident.

The photo was taken in front of a mosque at Thondi.

Initial investigation revealed that the person who took the photo had gone abroad and uploaded the picture on a social networking site.

The t-shirts were made by a company at Kader Pettai in Tiruppur district in Tamil Nadu, he said, adding, in all 100 such t-shirts had been made and of them 36 were worn by the group.

Rahman's friend Villavan had arranged to make the t-shirts, he said.

Police said the youths, who posed for the photo, did not have any links with any terrorist organisation, "but they are being monitored and have been warned severely."

"The mosque authorise had warned the youths against wearing such t-shirts. The youths had told them it was only a prank," an official of the Intelligence bureau said.

Officials said the picture had been withdrawn from the social networking site now.

They also said they have not found any hardcore supporters of the ISIS in Tamil Nadu.

VM: IB reports mention that Indian Muslims have radicalized to a far greater extent than previously thought.

1) The above mentioned Tamil muslims ISIS facebook page is shown in the below link
https://twitter.com/TarekFatah/status/494464046637137920

2) several Tamil and Malayali muslim youths have already left with their families to live in the newly declared 'caliphate'.

3) 125 Indians on watch-list.

The Govt of India should bear the expense for their one way-ticket to their new 'caliphate'..and cancel their passports once they are out. :-)

If Modi agrees and implements sincerely the principle enunciated by a great thinker and honest person – our beloved ex PM Manmohan singh – that the muslims have first right over resources of the country, there would be no riots or radicalization. Another great jurist of India Justice Sachar who was chief justice of India did a very detailed and exhaustive study and recommended that muslims in India deserve all kinds of benefits from the Govt. , that is from the taxpayers like reservation in education, jobs , social welfare programs and many others. The persecution of muslims is also a big issue. The most efficient home minister of India Mr. shinde had to issue a circular that Muslim youths should not be arrested. The policy followed by Mulla Mulayam, Laloo, Mayawati and Kangress and Mamta has ensured that there are a very few incidents of riots or radicalization of muslims in India.

If there are any terrorist attacks in India, it would solely because Modi and BJP are anti-muslims. However, Modi after election has mellowed down and I see no threat to peace in India.

The US and their allies not only armed these fanatics but their mercenaries fought to destroy Libya and Gadaffi. Now it is difficult to put the genie back in the bottle. Russians or the Ukranians (both White Europeans) had only downed the Malaysian Airlines plane, killing all the passengers. But the news bytes gone as fast as it came. Had it been one of the NATO countries'airlines the news coverage would have been totally different. Those who want peace have to choose between the devil and the deep sea or is it between the "commies"or the "cappies", if we may call the corporates on whose behalf the wild West commit their atrocities.
