Abdullah bin Mas'ud (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) said:

"Truth leads to piety and piety leads to Paradise. A man persists in speaking the truth till he is enrolled with Allah as truthful. Falsehood leads to vice and vice leads to the Fire (Hell), and a person persists on telling lies until he is enrolled as a liar".

Western Powers Unite Against ISIS: Islamic volunteers pouring in to Support ISIS.
by Kaukab Siddique, PhD

In view of the colossal propaganda campaign against the Caliphate [ISIS]. It's important to remember the timeline:

  1. USA invaded Iraq and after years of fighting installed a puppet shia regime in Baghdad headed by Maliki "elected" under the shadow of American tanks.

  2. Attempts by Maliki to suppress the Sunni population led to massive peaceful demonstrations in Mosul and Anbar province. These were brutally crushed by the Shia regime.

  3. The Sunni masses rose up in armed struggle led by ISIS [under Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi's leadership]. The Shi;ite army armed and funded by the US fled after ferocious attacks by the mujahideen of ISIS on Mosul. Four divisions of Shii military abandoned their heavy weapons, all provided by America. US special forces arrived in Baghdad.

  4. ISIS declared the Caliphate. Its shoora chose Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as Caliph. The Caliphate abolished the imperialist borders between Syria and Iraq.

  5. More US special forces were rushed to Iraq, to Baghdad and Irbil. US supported bombing raids on ISIS resulted in scores of deaths and injuries.

  6. ISIS warned that it would behead two Americans in its hands if the bombing raids continued. The attacks did not stop and both Americans were beheaded, one of them an Israeli with American citizenship.

  7. America decided to go to war over the two brutal beheadings. The media moved big time to support the "atrocity" propaganda. The murders of 500 Palestinian children in Gaza by the Israeli air force were forgotten. The Israelis are armed, funded and supported by the US.

  8. As Islamic caliphate forces moved against Iraqi Kurdish forces, UK started arming them. ISIS casualties mounted. UK was warned that a British prisoner would be beheaded in retaliation for UNPROVOKED war activity by the British. He was beheaded when the British continued their acts of war. [Many of the Kurds of Iraq, under secularist groups, supported the US occupation of Iraq. They are connected to Israel and have been providing oil to the Jewish state.

  9. On September 24, US air force with fighter bombers from Saudi Arabia and UAE, attacked Islamic capital of Raqqa in Syria as well as al-Nusra positions in Aleppo along with salafist Ahrar al-Sham.. French jet bombers joined the raids on Islamic positions.

  10. On September 26, UK, Belgium and Denmark decided to join the bombing campaign against ISIS. Denmark previously insulted the Prophet Muhammad, pbuh, by publishing cartoons of the most beloved leader of Islam.

Spotlights and Guidance
from Br.Badi Ali

  1. Stay away from depression: "Say: My servants who have committed excesses against themselves, do not despair of Allah's mercy. Surely Allah forgives all sins. He is Most Forgiving, Most Merciful." The Quran 39:53]

  2. Those who despair go astray. Never give up. "... Do not despair of Allah's mercy.Verily, only the unbelievers despair of Allah's mercy." [12:87]

  3. Understand depression. It weakens faith and is the mother of mental diseases.

  4. Some people complain all the time. Use an optimistic viewpoint and it will change your attitude.

  5. Enhance your faith. Learn to accept fate. Count your blessings. Think of the righteous woman who had lost an arm and felt blessed that she had the other arm.

  6. Focus on the positive and think of difficulty as an opportunity to improve. Think of the Prophet Muhammad, pbuh, who on being surrounded by enemy tribes [al-Ahzab] promised victory while he was digging the trench.

  7. Surround yourself with positive people.

  8. Optimism is learned behavior and positivity is contagious.

  9. Accept the fact that there will be ups and downs in life.

  10. Work on things to make them better. Don't let things bother you.

  11. Remember that nothing is permanent. Everything changes.

  12. Focus on the PRESENT.

The Drama of Tahir Qadri, Imran Khan & MQM in Islamabad & Karachi: North Waziristan and the Floods Ignored as Political Wrangling goes on.

From New Trend's observers in Pakistan

  1. Nawaz Sharif's government is known for its corruption and nepotism. There are numerous reports of rigging in the elections which brought Nawaz to power.

  2. Imran Khan challenged the rigging. He was joined Tahir ul Qadri who is known in Pakistan as a religious clown.

  3. Imran and Qadri [known as TUQ] promised to cleanse Pakistan and brought tens of thousands to Islamabad.

  4. Gradually, the protest camp in Islamabad became permanent. There are still around 15000 people encamped there. Every night they have musicals which degenerate into wild parties, dancing and singing.

  5. The mystery of the source of food and money for this week after week protest camp is intriguing Pakistanis.
    The protestors are now calling for "revolution" and Qadri has become something of a guru

  6. Our sources say that America and the military are the forces behind this ongoing drama meant to weaken Pakistan and distract people from the genocidal military operation in North Waziristan.

  7. Nawaz Sharif is standing firm. His weak government is a blessing to let the military continue its operations. America supports him but it also supports TUQ and Imran Khan [IK]. So USA has an A team and a B team with the real power in the hands of the military.

  8. The military is also interested in getting former president General Musharraf out of a trial for treason which became possible because Nawaz Sharif was mistreated by Musharraf. So the military uses Imran to pressure Nawaz and if he wants to stay, he has to let Musharraf go.

  9. Very recently IK suddenly left Islamabad for Karachi and got a HUGE welcome organized by MQM. Nawaz is cracking down on MQM owing to its support for IK and TUQ.

  10. Jamaat e Islami has been urging all parties to help the victims of the catastrophic floods which have hit Pakistan. None of the politicians are interested. LAH


Entire Shi'ite battalions wiped out by ISIS.
September 22: A heavily fortified Iraq military base, Camp Suqlawiya, near Faillujah, which had been holding out against ISIS for a wekk was stormed by martyrdom operators in two armored cars packed with explosives.

The Shi'ite troops, funded, armed and trained by the US, panicked and were hunted down. According to the Washington Post and various news services, more than 300 Shi'ite troops were killed, another 150 are missing, presumed dead, and another 150 escaped in small groups,
September 28: ISIS mujahideen are moving steadily towards the frontier with Iran. The Iranian regime has warned that if "the terrorists" near the border, Iran will advance into Iraq.
US air strikes in Iraq now total 200. They have saved Irbil from capture by ISIS but all the surrounding villages are now in Islamic hands

# 1 [Kobane]

Sept 28. Islamic mujahideen forces [ISIS] are now only 5 miles from the key border town of Kobane [Ain al-Arab in Arabic] and are advancing from two sides. Large numbers of communistKrdish forces known as YPG are entrenched in Kaobane vowing to fight house to house.

During the week September 22 to 28 ISIS slowly advanced against the Communists beating them back from village to village with heavy casualties. Civilians influenced by anti-ISIS propaganda are streaming into Turkey.

American jet bombers are now attacking the advancing mujahideen [as we go to the press.] American bombing of Islamic Caliphate's oil outlets continues.

#2 [Aleppo]

Sept 27: Al-Nusra front lost 57 fighters during surprise air raids by late model US jet bombers. The Americans claimed that they were targeting a secret group called "Khorasan" [mispronounced as "qorozon" bu US media. Al-Nusra was not ready for an American attack, thinking Americans were aiming only at ISIS. At least two leaders of the group have been killed in the attacks.

[Late reports indicate that the US attacked all groups fighting Syrian tyrant Assad, including the salafist Ahrar al- Sham.]

Al-Nusra has not attacked American interests but is now vowing to retaliate and is saying that these attacks are a war on Islam, not only on al-Nusra.]

"There are no ISIS members here"

Residents of a village in northwestern Syria are in shock after U.S. air strikes demolished two neighborhoods, despite there being no ISIS militants in the area, killing 27 people including six children.

According to a report by Al-Jazeera, which is aligned with Qatar, a vehement supporter of the U.S. military campaign against ISIS, missiles targeting the town of Kafr Diryan destroyed two residential areas, killing 27 people, most of whom were civilians.

"The locals say that this is the first time that they were attacked by missiles since the outbreak of Syrian revolution. The paradox, they say, is they were bombed not by the Syrian regime, but by an international coalition which killed and wounded many of them under the pretext of fighting terrorism," states the report.

One of the locals interviewed for the report asserted that no ISIS militants were even active in the area."This coalition is not against terrorism. It is against civilians, as you can see. The revolution has been going on for four years now, and not a single missile was shot at us by Bashar Al-Assad and his gang. The coalition fired two missiles, supposedly targeting ISIS, but there are no ISIS members here, not even ISIS children."

While the U.S. air strike on Kafr Diryan failed to eliminate any ISIS targets, the overall bombing campaign has had the opposite effect, with 6,000 new ISIS members being recruited since the United States' military campaign against Islamic State began last month.

Syria air strikes kill 42, including 16 children: Assad & USA linked

Sep 22-Syrian government air strikes killed at least 42 people, including 16 children, in Idlib province in the northwest, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Monday.

The air raids on Sunday afternoon and evening killed 19 people, including six children, outside the city of Saraqeb, and another 23 people, among them 10 children, in the town of Ehsim, the monitoring group said. The province is largely under rebel control outside its capital, Idlib city. The strikes outside Saraqeb hit an area where civilians were sheltering after fleeing repeated government air strikes on the city, the Observatory said.

Footage of the aftermath of the attack in Ehsim posted on YouTube by activists showed desperate civilians trying to dig out a man buried up to his neck in the rubble of a collapsed building. Another video showed the lifeless body of a child, naked and covered in grey dust, lying on top of shattered breeze blocks.

Obamanation in the White House & Impotent Black Faces

by Sis. Aisha [Jamaat al-Muslimeen New York City]

New York City - The Jews are hopping mad because the prestigious Metroplitan Opera is presenting an opera called....get this.... "The Death of Klinghoffer." This name was very familiar to me. I thought he was a politician. However, there was the Achille Lauro Cruise ship that was taken over by Palestinians sometime in 1985. Leon Klinghoffer, a Jewish man in a wheelchair, was killed and thrown overboard.

The Jews were outside The Met, yesterday, protesting the opera claiming that it promotes terrorism and antisemitism (Will someone please tell European Jews that Semite is a region tat ONLY covers Asia and parts of Africa, not Europe)! One Zionist protester found that the plays conveyance of humanity for the Palestinian terrorists nauseating.

Peter Gelb (sounds Jewish) the head of the Metropolitan Opera stated that the opera is a great work of art with challenging themes. "To not put this opera on and to allow a great work of art, which this is, to be suppressed, would be the worst possible thing—not just for the Metropolitan Opera, but for New York City, for art, and for the Jewish community, quite frankly," Gelb says.

However, The MET has agreed to cancel only the live simulcast of the show, which begins October 20, 2014. It ends sometime in late November 2014. (NY1 News)

Black Faces in High Places (The Impotence of Black Politicians)

As a Muslim, I do not participate in kuffar politics of ANY kind. Nowhere in the Qur'an does Allah encourage Muslims to work together with te kuffar. With the kuffar you must sleep with one eye open. How can you establish any kind of relationship with people who don't respect you and laugh at you to your face?! Yet, there are Black people who continue to promote the idea that voting works. They believe that we should choose our own party: The Freedom Party. As long as the kuffar are in control, NOTHING we do with the system will work because it is a kuffar system with kuffar rules.

The White House Obamanation

Pres. Obama had some audacity questioning the manhood of another Black man in a domestic dispute with his wife when Obama's own lack of manhood causes him to remain silent on other matters such as Police criminal behavior nationwide! His back pedaling moves are famous but, his silence on the murders of Blacks at the hands of White officers, with no convictions, is deafening! His murders children in other countries and only sheds tears when White children, from well-to-do families, are murdered by Adam Lanza in a senseless, horrific massacre. Let's see, he has worked tirelessly to ensure that America is the modern day Sodom & Gomorrah, he cowers to his White subordinates, he has undying support for Israel....He is deemed the most Powerful man in the so-called free world but acts like a house servant! He has powers that he refuses to use. This "man" is the epitome of a Black face in a high place.

Congressional Black Caucus

The most impotent of Black mainstream political groups. They stood by and allowed the people of New Orleans, Louisiana drown. They either stood by because they lacked the power to do anything or they just didn't care. I know it is the latter because someone with an activist mentality is going to go the more potent route to accomplish his/her goal to stop White oppression/aggression in America. An activist seeing him/herself rendered useless as a politician would've returned to activism on some level. This political group of Oreos (Black on the outside & white on the inside) enjoy their titles. It gives them something to call home and tell mama about. They have not raised their voices on the 50% Black unemployment in America, police criminality, nor the soaring rents along with gentrification in Black communities nationwide. These issues are not just facing the Black community but, the effects are very detrimental. What these Oreos WILL DO is implore us to keep voting so that they can keep their congressional seat.

Eric Holder HNIC of Justice Department

Now, he wants to review police tactics in Ferguson, Missouri????! What about California, New York, Minnesota, New Jersey, etc??? This man has the power to overhaul all of the law enforcement agencies in this country but, has remained silent on the murders of unarmed Black people! J. Edgar Hoover's FBI senselessly murdered Black Panther Party members in cold-blood yet, the Bloods & Crips Gangs are celebrating their 50th anniversaries. You think this was planned? Eric Holder's FBI is no different than his White Gay predecessor, Hoover! They have murdered Muslim witnesses and leaders with impunity because they don't believe anyone will check them. Holder has been so bold as to state that U.S. drone air strikes could be coming to America, soon, and stated that it would be the President's prerogative to carry them out! Well, don't let his bravado fool you. In a street fight he'd lose. A coward like Holder and his law enforcement minions love hiding behind their guns & badges until they are exposed. Then, their Masters deem them expendable because they can't take the heat! Black faces in high places only serve one purpose: to abort any real effort for improvement. They promote White supremacist lies and help to distract the rest of us from the important issues that we need to deal with in America. The kuffar are happy to have them and if they refuse to play by the rules they become a former member of Congress like Cynthia B. McKinney, who continues her activism.

P.S.: I suspect that, just as with reports about Al-Qaeda years ago, the reports on The Islamic State and Al-Qaeda subsidiary groups will go quiet once they start gaining ground against the kuffar armies. The New York Mayor reported that U.S. airstrikes against Syria 9/23/2014 won't affect the already amped up security around New York City. It is Rosh Shoshonna and as usual the Mayor sends security to the synagogues.

Agha Khani Attack on the Qur'an and on Ayesha, r.a., and Muawiyya, r.a.

by Kaukab Siddique

An Agha Khani says repeatedly on line that the Qur'an has been changed. The Agha attacks have become a regular feature on line. Other Agha Khanis support these attacks. That is kufr. There is no need of a fatwa for that. Both Shias and Sunnis agree that the Qur'an we have today is the one revealed to the Prophet, pbuh, and compiled by Usman, r.a., with the help of the sahaba, r.a.

Allah Almighty Himself says in the Qur'an that HE is the one who safeguards the Qur'an. All Islamic scholars, Shia and Sunni, classical times or modern times, agree that there is absolutely no question of the Qur'an being changed.

Agha Khani not only claims that the Qur'an has been changed but attributes it to deliberate effort by Usman, r.a., to change it. I have quoted the Agha Khani and rebutted her claims.

She is using the process of compilation to make her claim of change. She has copied and pasted page after page from Christian missionaries attacking Islam. If a scribe made a minor error, which was duly corrected by comparison with other manuscripts and with recitation by the memorizers or huffaz, missionaries claimed the Qur'an had been changed.

Usman, r.a., compared what various sahaba, r.a., had collected with the compilation in the possession of Hafsa, r.a., and then with the memorization of huffaz. So there was no question of any discrepancy. A definitive copy was prepared with the agreement of ALL SAHABA. r.a. This cross referencing is the highest form of authentication.

There is no question with anyone, Shia or Sunni, that a person cannot be a Muslim who says that the Qur'an has been changed. [The highest Shia scholar, Ayatollah Khui, rebutted the claim by crazy shias, that Usman, r.a., did or even could have changed the Qur'an.]

As for the passing away of Ayesha, r.a., all historians agree that she passed away peacefully. No scholar has ever claimed that Muawiyya, r.a., or his governor, killed her or tried to kill her. You can check histories written by scholars OPPOSED to the Ummayads, such as Tabari, Ibn Sa'ad, and Ibn Kathir. No one has made this silly claim that she was killed. It is a shia fabrication which has no chain of narrators. It is dirty sectarian gossip meant to abuse one of the greatest Caliphs, Muawiyya, r.a.

Remember that both Hasan, r.a., and Hussain, r.a., did bayat [formal oath of allegiance] of Muawiyya, r.a.

Ayesha, r.a., was no ordinary woman that she could be murdered and no historian of the early era of Islam would write about it.

Over 1400 years shias have fabricated all kinds of gossip and stories which have no authenticity and no evidence.

So, what I am writing is not a fatwa but a statement of historical fact which cannot be countered from any early Islamic source which follows the rules of narrative and is not someone's opinion.

Severe Sentences for al Qaeda Spokespersons: Son Targeted
Life in Prison for Association with Shaykh Osama bin Laden

by Karin Friedemann [Boston]

Suleiman Abu Ghaith has not been accused of having a role in the plot to attack the World Trade Center or of knowing about it, but on September 8, 2014, he was sentenced by federal court in Manhattan to life in prison for associating with and disseminating messages on behalf of Osama bin Laden.

Abu Ghaith's attorney, Stanley Cohen argued that Mr. Abu Ghaith was an Islamic theologian, speaking for Muslims more broadly and had not been specifically referring to Al Qaeda in the videos. Cohen said the prosecution had "gone out of its way to exploit the anguish and pain of 9/11 to fill an enormous evidentiary vacuum," making it "literally impossible for a jury of New Yorkers to look objectively" at the case.

"The government opened with 70 references to 9/11 and Osama bin Laden. They closed with 167 references to Osama bin Laden and 9/11. During the cross examination of Sulaiman Abu Ghaith you saw a ten minute video of the World Trade Center on fire."

In early 2013 Abu Ghaith reportedly testified that he described being consulted by Bin Laden on the night after the 9/11 attacks for his opinion. Abu Ghaith testified that he told Bin Laden that "America, if it was proven that you were the one who did this, will not settle until it accomplishes two things: to kill you and topple the state of Taliban."

On September 12 he agreed to Bin Laden's request that he make a public statement. Bin Laden said, "I am going to give you some points and you build around them that speech."

The US indictment states that on September 12, 2001, Abu Ghaith, appearing with, among others, Bin Laden and Bin Laden's then-deputy, Ayman al-Zawahiri, spoke on behalf of al Qaeda and warned the United States and its allies that "a great army is gathering against you" and called upon the "nation of Islam" to do battle against "the Jews, the Christians and the Americans." Abu Ghaith addressed the US Secretary of State, warning that "the storms shall not stop, especially the Airplanes Storm" and advised Muslims, children, and opponents of the United States "not to board any aircraft and not to live in high rises."

He attributed the Sept. 11 attacks to the United States' policies toward Muslims. "The American people must know that they bear full responsibility."

"There are clear requirements under the law. You know, if you want to turn around and indict people for words, there's about 270 Congressmen and women right now that have said some pretty incendiary things about a lot of things, maybe we should start there," Cohen said.

"From the very beginning, this case was wrapped in a shroud of secrecy, and an inability to get access to people."

Cohen said the judge refused to allow the defense to introduce testimony from Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, who pled guilty to being the "mastermind" of 9/11 and is detained at Guantánamo Bay. Cohen had argued that Mohammed, with his unsurpassed knowledge of Qaeda operations, could help clear his client. That the government does not consider Mohammed's testimony to have relevance certainly sheds doubt upon Mohammed's testimony, which was obtained under torture.

Cohen had sought a sentence of 15 years for his client, saying that a life sentence would be "the harshest of penalties for talk — and only talk." Comparing Abu Ghaith to "an outrageous daytime 'shock-radio' host," Cohen emphasized that his client had played no role in specific acts of terrorism.

Asked whether he had ever taken part in any plan to kill Americans or anyone else, Abu Ghaith said no. He had hoped that his speeches and videos would have led the United States to say, "Let's go and sit down and talk and solve this problem."

Abu Ghaith also testified that Bin Laden wanted him to lecture in the Qaeda camps because the trainees had a "hard life."

"I need you to change that," Bin Laden told him. He said Bin Laden wanted him to make them be merciful.

US prosecutor, Michael Ferrara taunted Abu Ghaith, "You're telling this jury that Bin Laden asked you to speak at those training camps where men were armed and learning how to use guns because he wanted you to talk about mercy?"
"Yes," Mr. Abu Ghaith replied.

Abu Ghaith's assets have been seized by the US government.

On September 19, 2014 Adel Abdul Bary another Islamic media spokesperson, who was extradited from the UK to the US, accepted a plea bargain to get a reduced sentence of 25 years, 14 of which he has already served in prison. The US government dropped his murder charges in exchange for his guilty plea.

Abdel Bari was accused of issuing statements on behalf of Egyptian Islamic Jihad to several press organizations. His indictment states that Bary "transmitted, via international telephone calls to the media, the contents of al Qaeda's claims of responsibility for the August 7, 1998, bombings of the United States Embassies in Nairobi, Kenya, and Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, which killed 224 people. The next day, he transmitted threats of future attacks by the same terrorists, to media organizations in France, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates. Bary additionally arranged for messages to be transmitted to and from members of the media to his co-conspirators, including Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri.

The FBI now claims that the defendant's son, Abdel-Majed Abdel Bari, an amateur rapper who became religious, is the masked man in the beheading videos of US journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff, and British aid worker John Haines.

Leading Relief Activity for the Muslim Minority Facing Genocide in Burma

by Prof. Suleyman Kurter [From a letter to Br. Shamim Siddiqi]

I was busy with the Rohingya Muslim Conference . Alhamdulillah, more than 400 people attended and Br. Kaukab Siddique participated as a speaker among several speakers. Insha-Allah, we are preparing another conference in New York, I will let you know the date of the conference and place. Many Rohingya and Burmese Muslims speak Urdu, we need small pamphlets, about 10-15 pages for Dawah, in Urdu. If you can bring pamphlets to this conference, it would be very helpful because most of the refugees do not speak English. Insha-Allah, we will also ask Br. Kaukab to prepare something for this conference. The Rohingya and Burmese Muslims have asked me to be on their board, and I will suggest your and Br. Kaukab's names to be speakers in the next conference.

We have collected coats, blankets, shoes, rice and lentils for the newly arrived Refugees. Alhamdulillah, we distributed these goods to over 50 families in Milwaukee. Brother, if you can collect some checks in the name of the Risale Center of America for the refugees, it would be appreciated. These Muslims are lacking food, coats, blankets, especially for the cold weather. It is really ironic that ISNA collected a lot of money for Jersey Shore and New Orleans Disasters but we don't see any mobilization for the Muslim Refugees.

Indian Prime Minister's visit
Indian Americans call for an end to growing repression of minorities and erosion of civil liberties in India

 Coalition Against Genocide

Prime Minister Modi's visit should be an occasion to discuss the current state of human rights and religious freedom in India

Coalition Against Genocide (CAG), a broad alliance dedicated to justice and accountability for the Gujarat pogrom of 2002 and to defending India's secular tradition, has marked the occasion of Prime Minister Modi's arrival in the United States with a call to people of all faiths and ideologies, to work with renewed vigor against the repression of minorities and erosion of civil liberties and to combat inflammatory rhetoric with grassroots efforts to foster harmony between different communities.

Mr. Narendra Modi was banned from entering the United States since 2005, up until his election to the Prime Minister's post, under the International Religious Freedom Act, for his "egregious violations of religious freedom." The law continues to be on the statute books, and its application in the case of Mr. Modi was sound. However, Mr. Modi is now able to visit the United States, under exemptions normally accorded to heads of state. CAG has called for the law to be applied to other officials in the Indian administration, such as Mr. Amit Shah, who was only recently implicated in a case of hate speech that contributed to the sectarian violence in Muzaffarnagar in the state of Uttar Pradesh.

"The first 100 days of Mr. Modi's tenure as PM have shown to the world the grave dangers posed by the Hindutva ideology to pluralism and the rule of law," said Dr. Raja Swamy, a spokesperson for CAG. "Since the national elections that brought Modi's party to power, the northern state of Uttar Pradesh alone has witnessed over 600 incidents against the Muslim minority," added Dr. Swamy.

The fact that the growing intolerance under the new dispensation is tearing apart India's social fabric is evident from the following:

  1. A relentless hate campaign against minorities fanned by Parliamentarians from Mr. Modi's own party includes conspiracy theories of Muslims luring Hindu girls into marriage as a form of "love jihad," and the characterizing of madrassas (Islamic religious schools) as dens of terrorism. This has inflamed sectarian feelings and created a sense of siege among minorities.

  2. In BJP-ruled states, draconian laws have been instituted to specifically target Christians. In 50 villages of Chhattisgarh, practice of Christianity has been banned . Tellingly, the Modi administration has remained silent on the growing atmosphere of repression threatening Christians in India, including the forced "re-conversions" of some Christians to Hinduism.

  3. In August, Mr. Mohan Bhagwat, the chief of the RSS (India's largest Hindu nationalist militia), declared Sikh, Jains and Buddhists, widely recognized as distinct religious communities, as part of Hindu society. He further declared anyone who treated them as distinct religious communities as conspiring against Hinduism. This attack on religious freedom, denying three religious communities even the right of self-identification, went unchallenged by anyone in Mr. Modi's administration.

  4. The Intelligence Bureau of India, which now directly reports to Mr. Modi, has issued a report identifying key human rights, educational and environmental NGOs as anti-national groups hindering the development of India. These groups include Amnesty International, Greenpeace and CORDAID. The Indian government has blocked overseas funding for Amnesty International. Likewise, grants for local NGOs have also been blocked in what can result in a serious erosion of civil rights culture in India.
    "Mr. Modi's silence in the face of the hate campaign launched by Yogi Adityanath and Sakshi Maharaj, and the suppression of relgious freedom and civil liberties, is a sign of either his quiet acquiescence or tacit endorsement of such tactics" said Dr. Shaik Ubaid, a spokesperson for CAG. "Either way, it betrays his unwillingness to go beyond the confines of the Hindutva ideology of which he has been a lifelong proponent," said Dr. Ubaid.

CAG is a broad-based coalition representing a diverse cross section of the religious and political spectrum of the Indian diaspora, including Hindu and other faith-based organizations. The coalition is committed to democracy, pluralism and to the preservation of the idea of India.

Former U.S. Attorney General Ramsey Clark has said that Dr. Aafia Siddiqui is innocent and has been victimized by the international politics for power. "Dr Aafia Siddiqui was victimized by the international politics being played for power. I haven't witnessed such bare injustice in my entire career," the Daily Times quoted Clark, as saying.

"Neither did Dr Aafia kill anyone, nor did she attempt it. In fact she was shot thrice and should be released immediately," he said, adding that relations between Pakistan and the U.S. could be strengthened through repatriation of Dr Aafia. Clark expressed his intention to gather people in America, for a one-point agenda of Dr Aafia's repatriation.

"Significant peace and justice activists will join me in promoting this agenda. Under the law, justice should be provided to each and everyone without any condition," he said.

Clark hailed the role of Pakistani people and particularly lawyers, saying that the nation's voice on state level could play a significant role in Dr Aafia's repatriation. He vowed that he would raise his voice for her repatriation at all levels in the U.S.A.

Leading Islamic Scholar Warns Muslims:
The West sees Caliphate as a Danger.

Mohtram Kaukab Bhai, Salaam

You are correct. Our so-called Muslim leadership is ignorant about the developments of Muslim world and the game plan of the vested interests of the secular West including that of Bharat and American foreign diplomacy which is mostly based on spreading hate against Muslim, Islam and Prophet Muhammad (S) one way or the other and opposing the emergence of of Islam anywhere as a political entity. This is the focal point of their foreign policy.

They don't dig into its depth and try to know how and where it originated. Their enmity goes back to their joint hate red against Ottoman Khellafah when the secular West was desperate to reach the Indian Ocean Markets. So, they conspired with Mohammad Ali Pasha, the Ottoman Governor of Egypt and Hejaz in mid 17th. century and invented the slogan of "ARAB LIL ARAB" and tried to separate the South East portion of the Sultanate from the domain of Khelafah. They succeeded to do so in the wake of First World War in separating it in early 20th century.

So, any step to revive the Khelafah gives warning signals to Anglo-Euro-American "JAGIRDAR" of Imperial Powers and our ill -informed modern Muslims go on trumpeting their empty drums. I fee pity for each of them.

I wish they would have tried to view the world in a different perspective. To day the west wants to dominate the globe by its hypocritical behavior and our Muslim leadership becomes its easy prey. They start harping on their tunes out of ignorance.

#2 Anti-Khilafa Coalition & the Unending War
Written by Dr Firoz Mahboob Kamal

The coalition of killers

The disease of imperialism survives and thrives only on invasion, occupation and plundering of other countries. Brutal suppression, ethnic cleansing and genocidal killing are the tools that give it prolonged sustenance. Hence, finding a new ground for an invasive war is its survival necessity. The Indians, red Indians, Africans, Australian aborigines, Latin Americans and the Maoris of New Zealand have been the worst victims of the disease for centuries. The colonial empires have died, but imperialism as a disease still survives. Hence it drives the USA more than seven thousands miles away from its seashore to Iraq and Afghanistan to feed its imperialistic appetite. President Mr Barack Hussein Obama's election pledge for ending the war in Iraq and Afghanistan turned nonsense; it has proved mere farcical bluff. The Western nations that killed more than 70 million people in two World Wars and massacred several millions more in their wars of occupation in Algeria, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq and other third world countries found a new agenda to forge a new alliance for further invasion, occupation, killing and plundering. This time, the agenda is destruction of the newly formed Islamic caliphate and killing the Islamists. Since Islam and the Islamists are not confined in Iraq and Syria, rather spread all over the world, the war turns global and looks unending.

The Islamists of Iraq and Syria didn't attack any Western country; but to justify their war against the Islamists and Islamic khilafa, the imperialists have a new set of arguments. Firstly, they reject Islam's core beliefs and institutions with hateful disapproval. They labelled khilafa and sharia as medieval barbarity; called it anti-women, anti-education, anti-human rights; and announced unfit to have a place in the modern world. Such a toxic idea against Islam's fundamental institutions itself is enough to be a good recipe for a perpetual bloody war against the Islamists. These arrogant imperialists not only define what is fit or unfit for the modern world, but also define Islam and muslimness of the Muslims. Recently, the British Prime Minister Mr David Cameron labelled the Islamists as monster, and denied calling them as Muslim. Such inflammatory speech adds more fuel to the exiting flame of hatred against the imperialists. Freedom, human rights, right of self-determination and the liberation war against the colonial occupation were never welcome to these imperialists; rather always labelled as terrorism. They don't like to see the Muslims as full Muslims; rather wish them slip away from Islam's core values and teachings. They don't hide their strong dislike against the full practice of the Qur'anic Islam -as practised by the prophet of Islam (peace be upon him) and his great companions. Islam and muslimness must fit into their own frame of definition and their wish-list. Hence, recent revival of khilafa -Islam's most important political infrastructure and the establishment of sharia are labelled as great crime punishable only by an invasive war and death. So it faces the united wrath of the imperialists.

Consensus against Islam

The countries like the USA, Russia, China, India, France, the UK, German, Canada, Australia and other kuffar countries have long quarrels on many issues. (Note: Throughout the holy Qur'an, Allah Subhana wa Ta'ala used the word "kuffar" to describe the deniers of Islam; therefore what can be the best sunnah and most rewarding than following the sunnah of Allah Subhana wa Ta'ala). But they have a perfect consensus on one issue: they are not ready to tolerate emergence of Islam as an alternative way of life. They are not ready to accept the revival of caliphate either. In the club of global powers, they are deeply against giving any space for the Muslims. From its very inception, the imperialists have established the full occupation of the UN's decision making club -the Security Council. Hence 55 million British could get a permanent seat in the UN Security Council, but more than 1300 million Muslims are denied any access! They claim the full political ownership of the whole world: the Muslims are not allowed to have any say even on their own religious affairs like sharia and khilafa. They also have a consensus to sustain the status quo. In such a milieu of imperialistic occupation, the USA finds no difficulty in getting the coalition partners in its war against the Islamists and the revival of caliphate. In recent NATO summit at Newport in the UK, the US, the UK, France, German, Italy, Canada, Australia, Poland and Denmark have already declared their readiness to join the coalition. Such convergence of the imperialistic agenda of these partners made the US warlords more arrogant and aggressive. Hence while chairing a meeting of these ten countries, John Kerry -the US Secretary of State told, "It may take a year, it may take two years, it may take three years, but we are determined." And on 10/09/14, the US President Barak Hussain Obama described Islamic State a cancer and vowed to destroy it. He also announced that the jihadists will not find any safe haven in any part of the world. He told that Islamic State is a threat to the Americans and their ally. He argued, if Islamic State survives, the USA can't be a safe haven for its own citizens.

However the USA understands its own weakness. Fighting against Islamists will not be an easy job for the Westerners, therefore looks for partners from the Muslim countries. In search of the partners, the US Secretary of State Mr John Kerry has already started a campaign in the Muslim World. He visited Saudi Arabia on 11/09/14 and met leaders of the Arab gulf countries. In a press conference in Jeddah, John Kerry told, Islamic State fighters are barbaric terrorist and they should not be allowed to survive. He argued that Arab states should take the key role in the war. Ten Arab countries including Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Qatar have declared their willingness to support the US war against Islamic caliphate. These countries find this war against khilafa as their own war of survival. They fully understand that if the khelafa survives, they have to quickly disappear. These Arab rulers can't stand on their own feet: fully dependent on the USA for their own survival. Therefore, how can they help the USA in its war against Islamists? However they can be used as deceitful camouflage on the body of kuffar coalition to deceive the Muslims.

The globalisation of terror: Is the beginning of World War III?

War itself is a great terror. Such terror gets quickly globalised if a world power like the USA gets involved. The USA did it before in World War I and II; now repeats it again in its crusade against the Islamists. It can easily turn this war into World War III. As a result of its vile campaign, the White House now claims that 37 countries from Albania to the UK have pledged to join the US in its war against the Islamists and the revival of khilafa. It is no more hidden that interfering in internal affairs of other countries is the essence of the US foreign policy. They live about more than 7 thousand miles away from Iraq and Syria. The US doesn't want any safe haven for the Islamists even in a Muslim country; but wants the whole world as a safe haven for its own citizens. The imperialists have their own set of definition for terrorism, barbarity and inhumanity. According to them, even killings of millions of civilian people in two World Wars by the Allied Forces or dropping atomic bombs are not barbaric. The killings in Algeria, Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iraq are not barbaric either: rather lauded as Western endeavours to teach democratic values to the people of Third World countries.

Wolf doesn't kill or condemn another wolf. They are the partners in the same crime. Likewise, the USA never condemns the barbarity of Israelis and other war criminals. Similarly, the gang of thugs ruling the Arab countries like Saudi Arabia, Egypt, UAE, Jordan, Bahrain and many others didn't condemn the Israeli atrocities either. In its recent war in Gaza, Israel killed more than 2 thousand civilians and injured more than 10 thousands. The Israeli war planes destroyed thousands of houses, shops and offices. None of the Western governments asked the Israeli government to stop such massacres. On the contrary, Israel received full moral, political and military support from the US and its ally. Due to such support, the UN couldn't pass a single resolution denouncing Israeli atrocities. Neither did they condemn the Egyptian army's recent killings of civilians and barbaric suppression of the basic human rights. Rather, the USA and other imperialists are recruiting the same brutal killers as the partners in their war against Islamists. Mr John Kerry -the US Secretary of State told during his recent visit in the Middle East that Egypt will play a key role in the coalition. President Bashar al-Assad has killed more than two hundred thousand people in Syria and caused catastrophic devastation in that country. Instead of taking any action against such a pathological killer, the coalition of the imperialist killers is now knocking his door to beg his partnership against the Islamic State.

Patronising the terrorists & demonising the Islamists

The greatest loss of human life and the worst brutality in history didn't happen by the wild animals or by the gangs of street thugs. Such crimes were always committed by the state terrorists. The Muslims of Palestine, Kashmir, Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria are the worst victim of such terrorism. During the years between 1992 and 1995, the most brutal genocide took place in the backyard of the West. It was in Bosnia Herzegovina. More than 2 hundred thousand Bosnian Muslims were slaughtered; more than 20 thousands women and girls were raped. Their houses and shops were burnt down. The USA, the UK, France and other NATO countries had the capacity to quickly stop such genocide, rape and destruction. They didn't do anything; rather the helpless Muslims were left amid the Serb wolfs. No US plane or drone was seen in the Bosnian sky. No western leader made any tour to mobilise world leaders against such genocide. Rather, many mercenaries from the UK, France, Greece and other Western countries were allowed to join the Serb and the Croat terrorists to kill the Bosnian Muslims -as many Jews from the US and Europe joined Israel's recent war of genocide in Gaza.

Even many of the Westerners took part in the genocide of the Bosnian Muslims as UN peace keepers. More than 8 thousands helpless Bosnian Muslims who took shelter in the UN premise of Srebrenica were handed over by the Dutch peace-keepers to the Serbs for wholesale slaughter. The massacre went on broad day-light with loud sound of firearms from the nearby killing field. The Dutch peace keepers had the capacity to save those innocent lives. But they decided to do anything. Some Muslim country wanted to send some troops to save the Muslims from the Serb butchers, but the US President Bill Clinton prevented that move too. Like President George W Bush and President Obama, he too showed the real American love for the Muslims. The USA came to the Bosnian stage only when the Muslim jihadists from other countries started joining their Muslim brothers in their defensive jihad and stood as a formidable force against the Serb. In the name of peace, the US president Bill Clinton and his Western cronies played another deceitful game against the Muslims. In the name of so-called Dayton Peace Agreement, the Serb killers were hugely rewarded. In Bosnia Herzegovina, the Muslims constitute 44% of the population. But they were given only 30% of the land. The Serbs are only 31% of the population, but were given 49% of the land. This is a sample of the US as well as Western justice for the Muslims.

In Bosnia, the Serb brutality against the Muslims went on for three and half years, from 1992 to 1995. But the USA and its Western partners couldn't find a single day for taking any initiative to stop that genocide. The UN Security Council was not mobilised to take any action either. But now a full-fledged global war is being organised by the US and its NATO partners against the revival of Islamic khilafa. Did Islamic State fighters kill 200 thousands people as were killed in Bosnia? Are women and girls being raped there by the Islamists? Beheading of two US journalists and a British were given global publicity. But heading of many jihadists did not receive any publicity or condemnation. The New York Times published a report on 26.08.2014 that a jihadist of US origin was beheaded by Free Syrian Army fighters. This Free Syrian Army is supported by the USA and its ally. The daily Telegraph of London published a news on 10.09.2014 that at least 2 Islamic State fighters were beheaded by Shia militia built by Iranian government. That beheadings were not condemned either.

Why khilafa is so crucial?

Embracing and practising some faith and beliefs is Islam. When a state is possessed by Islam, it gives tremendous political and military power to Islamic faith and beliefs. If faith doesn't possess a state, it fails to emerge as a meaningful power. Neither can contribute positively to enhance peace, nor can mould societies. Such a stateless faith also fails to make any significant impact domestically and internationally. Islam is the faith of about 1300 million people today. Since Islam does not possess any state, hasn't any impact on politics, law, judiciary, education and culture of the Muslim countries, let alone make any global impact. All such crucial arenas of societies are taken over by the anti-Islamic beliefs and their followers.

Ownership of 57 Muslim states is indeed in the hand of secularists, nationalists, atheists and monarchists; and none possessed by Islam and the Islamists. Hence Islam couldn't get any real benefit from these states. Instead, most of the Muslim states -especially the oil-reach Arab states are de-facto assets for the imperialist warlords. Even the rulers are their assets, too. Therefore, the US, the UK, France and other imperialist countries could count them as servile partners in their fight against Islam and the Islamists. Hence for fighting the war against the revival of khilafa, the imperialist kuffars do not need to bring their own foot-soldiers to the Muslim lands. The rulers of the Muslim countries and their cronies are ready to play the necessary role for them. To understand their subservient role, it is worth noting that while the defenceless people of Gaza were being slaughtered, these rulers didn't raise any voice of protest against Israel.
Ownership of a land must not go to any autocrat ruler, people, tribe, clan, party or army; rather to its creator Allah Subhana wa Tawala. His laws should get the supremacy in the land. For the Muslim ummah for all ages to come, this is the legacy of the prophet of Islam (peace be upon him). Every Muslim is the khalifa -the political viceroy of Allah Subhana wa Tawala and His prophet (peace be upon him) to continue with that legacy. Revival of khalifa remains the only route to establish such ownership of Allah Subhana wa Tawala on His lands. And only this way the Muslims can attain freedom from the occupation of the external and internal enemies.

A man is indeed the political, cultural and ideological expression of his inner faith. Belief in Allah Subhana wa Tawala is not the only element to be a Muslim. It also entails his belief in His sovereignty, His law, His holy book, His all prophets, His angels, and His day of judgement too. Due to such distinctive faith, a Muslim is visibly different in his name and nomenclature, culture and politics, behaviour and attitude from a non-believer. His physical, linguistic or ethnic attributes have little importance in the making of his Muslim identity. It is crucially important to protect such territory of Islamic belief from corruption. For protection of faith, Muslims' own intent and ability are not enough: rather needs an Islamic state and its supportive institutions. Teachings of many great prophets like Hazrat Musa (AS) and Hazrat Isa (AS) were mostly lost due to absence of such supportive state and state institutions. If the state is possessed by evil forces, the state institutions play coercive role to corrupt the Divine beliefs. Under the occupation of the colonialists, the state institutions of the Muslim countries were used day and night to corrupt the Muslims morally, ideologically and culturally and turn them enemies of Islam. As a result, these home-grown enemies now join the foreign enemies to fight against Islam's own institutions like caliphate and sharia.

The panicking west

Islam always makes a history of great achievement whenever it possesses a state. Khilafa is the political infrastructure that always gives profound power to the Islamic faith and also the Muslims. The early Muslims were not even half a million; but they could easily defeat and put the final nails on the coffins of two World Powers -the Persian and Roman Empires. It is showing its strength even today. When Islam could possess the people of Afghanistan in the eighties, it could put the final nails on the coffin of Soviet Union -one of two World Powers. The same scenario is repeating again. With the emergence of Islamic caliphate in Iraq and Syria, the whole West is now panicking. The USA can't dare fight the nascent khilafa alone, rather needs a 40-country coalition. They are also frightened to put their feet in land of Islamic state.

In order to keep the Muslims powerless, the imperialists want to keep the ownership of the Muslim countries tightly in the hands of their nationalist, secularist, monarchist and autocratic stooges. In Bahrain, Qatar, Oman, UAE, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait they have big-size military bases. These bases are not there to promote the basic human rights or protect any people or support any elected governments, rather to protect their own stooges as well as their own national interest. Through these stooges, the imperialists keep the ownership of these countries and their wealth in their own hands. It is indeed the well managed post-colonial phenomenon of the Western imperialism. Any revolt against these stooges is perceived in the West as the revolt against their own ownership. This is why they were unhappy with the removal of Hosni Mubarak of Egypt and Ben Ali of Tunisia. Now they are rejoicing the retake of power in Egypt by their own man -General Abdul Fattah al-Sisi. Mr Sisi is now their partner in the war against Islamists.

Playing with fire

The revival of khilafa and implementation of sharia are exclusively the internal issues of the Muslims. It is a matter of their faith. No non-Muslim has any business here. The Westerners may adopt homosexuality, same sex marriage, pornography, free sex and other vices as their way of life. These are their internal affairs. The Muslims never interfered on those issues and never launched any war against them on those Western beliefs and practices. But declaring war against the revival of khilafa, the Western imperialists are now playing with fire. Of course, there are many opponents of khilafa and sharia inside any Muslim countries. But the imperialists have no right to take any side and use such difference to launch war against any Muslim country. Now the West's war is no more against Afghans or Arabs, it is against Islam. The war front is no more limited to one or two countries, now it is global. Although it is claimed that the war is against the Islamic State's militant fighters, but actually the killings are not confined to Islamic State fighters either. Now the whole Muslim World has turned into Gaza. And Israel is not alone in the killing; many more new Israels have joined the killing too. The USA itself is now a big Israel with Israeli values and Israeli venom against Islamists. Hence Hamas is not the only target. Now all Islamists are considered as Hamas -as recently argued by the Israeli Prime Minister Mr Netanyahu. Hence what Israel did against the children, the women and the unarmed civilian of Gaza; the USA is doing the same in Iraq, Afghanistan, Northern Pakistan, Somalia and other parts of the Muslim World. For example, on 10th of September, the US air strike in Afghanistan killed 11 civilians; of them 2 are women and 2 are children. (Source: Al-Jazeera English).

Despite all these bombing successes, the Western imperialists suffer from deep frustration. They have spent more than trillion dollars to fight the wars against Islamist, but with little success. They dropped thousands of bombs to flatten cities and villages. They killed and maimed millions too. They did war in Afghanistan for 13 years, but couldn't finish the war. They couldn't end the war in Iraq either. They could kill Saddam Hussain, but couldn't finish the Islamists. Saddam's Iraq has collapsed but Islamic caliphate has emerged. The ongoing war against Islamists still needs trillion of dollars; but with little prospect of success. Where from the money will come? Such frustration makes people more sadistic and aggressive. And a sadist always enjoys the deaths and sorrows of others. It is a moral disease; and a losing war makes such disease hugely epidemic. That is exactly happening in the imperialist camp. Hitler and his people had similar problems, too; hence built gas chambers to burn Jews. For the same reasons, the USA dropped atom bombs and now needs drones, Guantanamo bay and Abu Gharib, rendition, torture cells and water boarding. Hence killing women, children and the unarmed innocents in their beds in nights by unarmed drones, locking up people without trial and doing the water boarding have been the popular sports of the US President and his partners in crimes.

The ideological weapon

Islam's war against the enemies is mostly ideological. The Muslim armies never win any war by superior arms, rather by superior faith and ideology. In terms of ideological ammunitions, Muslims have no match. The Roman and the Persian empires had superior weapons, but didn't have superior ideas. Hence were easily defeated by the Muslims. The Muslims got the most powerful ideological weapon from none else, but from Allah Subhana wa Tawala. It is the holy Qur'an. It strongly connects people with Allah Subhana wa Tawala. As long as the Muslims used this powerful weapon, no power could defeat them. During the first 13 years of Islam in Makka, the prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) didn't build a single mosque or a madrasa. Rather from day one, he started his war with the most powerful artillery of human history -the holy Qur'an. It was given to him on the very first day of his prophet-hood. In war of ideas, knowledge comes first. In such war, ignorant men or women have no role; rather runs the risk of becoming an enemy of Islam -as happening with ignorant people of the Muslim world. Hence, it is a major sin to remain ignorant of the holy Qur'an.

But a poor or disabled man with the knowledge of holy Qur'an can make tremendous contributions. Only this way the Muslims win hearts and minds of people. The US deployed the most sophisticated weapons in its war. It also spent trillions of dollars. But that helped only to slaughter millions of men, women and children and destroy hundreds of cities and villages, but didn't help win the hearts and the minds. Therefore, the US had to swallow a humiliating defeat both in Afghanistan and Iraq. The same happened to the Soviet Union in Afghanistan. Ideology brings inner change and works as the most powerful mobilising force. Later on, the Muslim rulers also failed to win the heart and mind of the people when leadership was taken by the Turks, the Moghuls and other tribal leaders. Apart from warfare, they possessed hardly any other skills. In terms of understanding the holy Qur'an and upholding the Qur'anic mission, they were quite different from the early Muslims. Hence their empires expanded, but not Islam. The West suffers from a huge ideological void; hence finds difficulties to recruit foot-soldiers for its war against Islam. They need to spend at least one million US dollar per person to keep people in the war field. But the Islamists all over the world are making distinctive difference. Thousands of young people from Europe, America, Africa and Asia are rushing towards Islamic caliphate to sacrifice their life. The respective governments are facing difficulties to put a check on their migration.

In Islam, a Muslim government has a Divine responsibility. It must possess the political will and the social policies to equip every believing man and woman with Qur'anic artillery -as was the policy of the prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and his rightly guided khalifas. Under the occupation of the enemies, such a Divine weapon was kept unused or hidden from the public eye. Taking the Muslims away from Qur'anic knowledge was the prime agenda of the imperialists -as was made public by the former British Prime Minister Mr Gladstone in his speech in the British Parliament. Under the state managed madrasa education system, the Muslims were encouraged only to recite this greatest gift of Allah Subhana wa Tawala, not to understand it. As a result of the colonial legacy, the holy Qur'an is the least understood book in the Muslim World. Even today, the imperialists want the execution of the same policy in the Muslim countries.

The greatest crime of the imperialists

The establishment of khilafa provided a new opportunity to the Muslims. After a long period of 90 years, the rule of sharia and the prophetic tradition of governance get a new chance to flourish. It is the most significant event in the Muslim world in last 90 years. The western imperialists have already committed a series of crimes against the Muslim ummah by occupying the Muslim countries, plundering their wealth and corrupting their faith. But now they look more desperate to commit the greatest crime against the ummah by snatching the long awaited Islamic khilafa from them. They do not like that the Muslims should demolish the imposed boundaries of their states. The Europeans dismantled the Berlin wall. They have also dismantled their national boundaries and forged European Union. In recent referendum on Scotland's independence, the British imperialists lectured on "better together" to the Scottish people. But the same is not allowed in the Muslim world. The Muslims are not allowed to dismantle the Berlin walls and the artificial boundaries that were built to divide the Muslim ummah. They consider these walls indispensable for the containment of Muslim power inside the post-colonial chicken states. The Islamic khilafa fighters dismantled the border between Syria and Iraq. Such dismantling border is indispensable to attain a larger Muslim state; therefore gateway to become a world power. So it is not acceptable to the enemies of Islam. They don't want to see Muslims attaining such a dominant status on the world stage. Hence the USA war planes have returned back to bomb the newly found Islamic caliphate. The UK, France, Australia and other NATO countries are also in hurry to start the bombing.

The hidden strength

The Muslims never won a war with the military might. They won only by the help of Allah Subhana wa Tawala. Allah Subhana wa Ta'ala reveals in the Qur'an, "Victory is always from Allah; surely Allah is Mighty and Wise."-(Sura Anfal, verse 10). So, victory is decided only by Allah Subhana wa Ta'ala, and by none else. This is a core belief of a Muslim. Hence, miracles happen in the war fields. Therefore, by the Divine help a small number of ragtag soldiers of the Arabian Desert could easily defeat the huge professional armies of Roman and Persian Empires. The same miracle happened in Afghanistan. Both the Soviet Union and the USA had massive army of highly trained professionals in Afghanistan. They have heavy weapons of mass destruction, too; but both the World Powers couldn't win the war against the ragtag Mujahideens. The deciding role in the war was played by Allah Subhana wa Ta'ala - the Most Powerful and the Most Wise. He has His unseen army of Angels. He looks at the souls of the believers and counts their intent and sacrifices. If they show their solemn intent to please Him and sacrifice their life and wealth in His Way, Allah Subhana wa Ta'ala also shows His intent to help them. He even turns tiny stones into accurately guided missiles and uses sea water as war weapons. Here lies the strength of the Islamists. The army of arrogant Abraha of Yemen and Pharaoh of Egypt tasted that. When the Muslims turn into Allah Subhana wa Ta'ala's army, Allah Subhana wa Ta'ala brings His reserve army into the war fields, too. It is a Qur'anic promise that proved true again and again. Who is better than Allah Subhana wa Ta'ala to keep the promise?

The arithmetic flaw & the folly

The imperialists can't think of Allah Subhana wa Ta'ala Divine Army. So, in their equation of powers, the most powerful player stands missing. Therefore, along with the conceptual flaws, this is a gross arithmetic flaw in their calculation. The imperialists' war against Islamic caliphate has huge faith and ideological dimensions; it is not a war between two armies, rather between two faiths. Neither is it a war only against the Iraqi or Syrian Islamists. Khelafa is a pan-Islamic institution: hence belong to all Muslims. Hence defending khilafa does not lie on the shoulders of the Iraqis and the Syrians alone. When the Osmania khilafa was attacked by the enemies, even the poor Bengal Muslim households set a donation pot for the khalifa. Before cooking, they used to save a fistful of rice from the day's allocation for the family in that pot every day. It is such a sensitive issue that influences Muslims globally. Although the war in Afghanistan against the Russian occupation was 100% jihad, but none of the Indian Muslims joined that war. No one from South America joined the Afghan jihad either. Reason, the issue of khilafa was not involved in Afghan jihad. Moreover, it was mixed with some ethnic, nationalistic and tribal elements. Hence, it couldn't touch the Muslims' emotional fibres so strongly and globally. But with declaration of khilafa, the situation has taken a new turn. Now the people from Russia, China, Europe, India, Australia, North and South America are joining the jihad in Iraq and Syria.

The unwinnable war

In Afghanistan and Iraq, the USA and its ally have carried out horrendous atrocities by killing, injuring and torturing millions of men, women and children. They caused huge destruction of physical infrastructure. France has done the same in Algeria. Such crimes have already boiled up the Muslims' blood to explosion point. The continuation of such crimes and dropping more bombs can explode the Muslims' sentiment not only in Iraq and Syria, but also in other parts of the world. The USA and its ally are failing to understand the consequence of such crimes. To justify further war, President Obama and his cronies argue that they want to destroy safe haven for the Islamists. But amid such boiling heat of anti-West sentiment, can they themselves enjoy any safe haven in any part of the world -even inside their own countries? They can count only the number of Jihadists, but they can't count the invisible faith and sentiment of the angry Muslims. The return back of the US bombers to Iraq indeed shows how badly they lack the insight. Mere presence of the US and the NATO forces in Iraq and Syria will be a strong catalyst factor to pull more Islamists to jihad from all over the world. With the restart of US bombing against khilafa, the number of Islamic State soldiers made a three-fold jump: from 10 thousands to 31 thousands. The war is now taking a global shape. It will make the war not only a head-on clash of ideas, rather an unending war between Islam and the West. The USA and its forty-nation-coalition couldn't win a war in Afghanistan; another in Iraq. Can they win hundreds' of such concurrent wars all over the world? 19/09/2014
