After Modi's Victory. India more Violent.


June 16, 2019
Soon after the Narendra Modi-led BJP secured an emphatic victory in the parliamentary election, reports about targeting of Muslims and dalits started trickling in from various parts of the country. The second consecutive win for the BJP, riding on a narrative built around communal nationalist jingoism, has emboldened right-wing goons and vigilantes.

Mohammed Barkat Alam experienced it first-hand in Gurgaon. On May 25, two days after the Lok Sabha election results were declared, a group of men accosted Alam when he was returning from a mosque after evening prayers. He was assaulted and asked to remove his skull cap and chant Jai Shri Ram. Hailing from Begusarai in Bihar, Alam worked as a tailor in Gurgaon.

Narrating the incident to the media, Alam said, "Four men on a motorcycle and two pedestrians intercepted me. One of the pedestrians hit me with a stick and told me that I was not allowed to wear a skullcap in the area. He told me to take it off. I told him that I was returning from the mosque. When I refused, he hit me and forcibly took the cap off. He said that if I resisted too much, he would make me chant 'Bharat Mata ki Jai' and 'Jai Shri Ram'."...



By Abdulkabir Oyemomi

The announcement of the former democratically elected president of Egypt came as a rude shock to many Muslims of the World, including Nigeria. While all Muslims in Nigeria, regardless of sects, prayed for the late Egyptian leader, skirmishes ensued as it was almost overblown by a group known to have had inclination towards Ikhawanee group of Egypt.

Ikhawanees in Nigeria are known for influencing political leaders to yield to issues around rights of Muslims through any means, especially public protests. Whereas the Salaffi- inclined group always take them up on numbers of propositions to bring evidence from Quran and Hadith. This has been the bedrock of the disagreement between the two groups from the time immemorial . This became more intense as the news of death of Morsi broke!

Ikhawanee brothers made very wide awareness on the death of Morsi that even those who never understood any international politics change their profile pictures to Morsi's on all their social media accounts;

Salat- ul- Ghaib was also said by members throughout Western Nigeria, etc. But all these would not just be observed without some jibes on the Sallaffis and condemnation of anything Saudis'.

Many Salaffi brothers also prayed for Morsi even though they never minced words in castigating the system of taking the position of leadership by political means, especially democracy. Democracy to many Salaffi brothers is kufru system which Muslims should shy away from.

The writer notices that the main issue is that there are some from both groups that make issues go too awry! For instance, there are some ikhwanis who do not see anything good from Salaffi brothers, even to think everyone that holds salafiyah belief must be sponsored by Saudi government and therefore must be a puppet of Saudi.

There are also some Sallaffis, if scanty, that laid curse on the death of Morsi, a very bad one and stupid action from Muslim to Muslim, no matter what the grievances.

In all, all Muslims should try to cleanse their intentions on any endeavor as Allah is the best disposer of all affairs. Ikhlas is the bedrock of all worship but nothing can be regarded worship, however beautiful, if such is at slight variance with the way of our noble prophet Muhammed Bin Abdullah, may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him.


 Dr Kaukab Siddique

The Real Reason Why President Morsi was murdered. He did not realize how Evil is the Egyptian Power structure.
by Kaukab Siddique, PhD

Some of the comments about President Morsi are beyond absurd. One is: Was he murdered? Even an ordinary citizen's death in police custody is considered murder to begin with.

Another absurdity : Was General Sissi, the tyrant responsible for the murder? The general has had several thousand peaceful demonstrators killed in broad daylight. Remember Rabia?

A third absurdity: It is so sad because he was democratically elected. One has to be simple mincded to believe that anyone can be elected in Egypt without the support of the military and America. [The only exceptions are Iran and Turkey,]

Egypt is central in ability to fight Israel and defeat it militarily as it once almost did. Even without Islamic leadership Egypt has hurt the West more than anyone else, Remember thar Mohommed Atta was Egyptian. Also, Ayman al-Zawahiri was second only to Osama bin Laden. Even now, many of the leaders of ISIS on the battlefield are Egyptian. The most important internal problem for the tyrant Mubarak was Dr. Omar Abdel Rahman and Jama' Islamiyya.

So the real issue in Egypt is not democracy but Islam.

What happened with Dr. Morsi was that Muslim Brotherhood activists in America and Europe were such bootlickers of the western powers that the West was convinced that if someone from the Brotherhood were elected, he would be malleable and would never go against western financial and military investment in Egypt.

These Brotherhood people living in the West did not represent the Egyptian people, not even Brotherhood supporters in Egypt.

Dr. Morsi was not even from the actual Brotherhood.

What was he thinking? To me it seems that he thought he could follow the Turkish pattern. Slowly but steadily he would remove Israel's stranglehold on Egypt.

He did not realize that Turkey was not up against Israel. If Egypt became Islamic, the entire American-Israeli takeover of the Middle East would vaporize.

The Egyptian army is 100% westernized and the police is worse.

Egyptian power structure is so evil that they executed Egypt's greatest Islamic scholar, Syed Qutb. Women too were tortured. Read the story of Zainab al-Ghazzali.

America and Israel were so impressed by the evil of Egyptian tyranny, they used to send Muslims to be tortured in Egypt.

Morsi was such a loving, kind person, he appointed General Sissi as army chief because his wife wore hijab!

Large crowds cheered Dr. Morsi when he moved slowly but steadily against Israel and in support of Gaza. America and the army were watching. They soon realized that Morsi would not stop, The people of Egypt were rising up though they had no weapons.

Morsi even started working for the release of Dr. Omar Abdel Rahman who was in an American prison cell.

Also, Morsi did not realize that during decades of Mubarak's rule, a large secular structure had developed for whom Islam was only saying "asalamu alaikum" and going to the mosque on Fridays and Eid.

So when General Sissi made his move, thousands of stupid Egyptian secularists supported him. Even the opposition was secular after the Brotherhood was smashed.

[Jamaate Islami in Pakistan has learned from Egypt. It dare not to challenge the army though it knows the army is corrupt and its generals are serving America.]

Morsi was a strong Muslim in an Egyptian prison, humiliated and mistreated till the end, but his faith always remained strong.

Inna lillahe wa inna alaihi rajeoon.



Huge Procession in Faisalabad for People's Rights.
by Qaiser Sharif

LAHORE, June 23; Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Senator Sirajul Haq, has said that the PTI government was the most failed government in the country's history.

Addressing a huge Awami March at Faisalabad on Sunday, he said that the government had increased the prices of sugar and cement overnight only to benefit the sugar and cement mafias.

He said the JI would announce its future line of action at its Million march in Karachi, on June 30.

He further said the JI would not be a part of the PPP and PML(N) campaign and added the masses had no option except the JI.

Sirajul Haq said that the party talking of the Madina state had announced building 1100 cinema house. He said the kisans and labourers of the country were crying. He said that India was providing electricity and farm inputs to farmers on subsidized rates while the Pakistan government had increased the prices of these items.

The JI chief said that the businessmen of Faisalabad had set up cottage and small industry and provided jobs to lakhs of people but the government had levied tax of these industries causing problems for the workers.

He said the government and the NAB would have to proceed in the mega corruption cases in order to fill its treasury.

He said if the government wanted progress and prosperity, it would have to abolish interest.

SirajulHaq said that the government had chalked out a policy to give a way out to thieves. He said that feudal lords and capitalists who had been getting PPP and PML(N) tickets were now in the PTI and half of the Imran khan's cabinet comprised these turncoats.

Barrage of Russian bombs and Assad's Barrel bombs contines. Tahrir [al-Nusra] Controls all of Idlib Province. IS Delivers Deadly blows in Desetrt Fighting.

June 17 to June 23.
Daily air strikes by Russian air fleet is continuing.
The bombing is focusing on towns in Idlib province , northern Hama province, parts of Latakia province and points in north west Aleppo province.

The dropping of barrel bombs by Assad's helicopters is also continuing but on a much smaller scale in parts of Idlib province.

The civilian death toll is steadily rising into hundreds killed and wounded.

Civilians are fleeing towards the north as the bombing continues. The number is estimated above 200,000 now.

The defense of Idlib province is now completely in the hands of Tahrir [al-Nusra] with a smaller pro-al-Qaida group known as "Protectors of the Deen." This has created a problem for Turkey which considers both groups as "terrorist" groups. Parts of north west Idlib and Latakia are defended by Turkistani fighters [Uighurs] from Chna. In addition, northern areas of the four Muslim provinces are defended by Syrian fighters previously known as FSA but now allied to Turkey as Liberation forces.

Assad's Shia militias [Iranians, Afghans, Lebanese] have not been able to advance despite the cover provided by Russian bombers.

ISIS is busy in desert warfare aganst the Assad regime's Shia militias, particularly Iranians and Lebanese hizb.

SOHR is reporting increasing losses in Assad's forces near the Mayaedein area of Der ez Zor province. IS is also suffeting losses in this fighting but on a smaller scale.

In eastern Homs province, east of Sokhna, IS is strengthening its hold in desert strongholds and strikimg at Assad's outposts and pro-American SDF troops towards al-Raqqa.

Guru of Self-Help Cult Convicted in Lurid Sex-trafficking Case.
[Excerpted from AP and Aol.]

Raniere listened attentively, but showed no visible reaction as he learned the verdict.

His lawyer, Marc Agnifilo, said Raniere plans to appeal.

"Keith maintains his innocence. It's a very sad day for him," Agnifilo said. "I think he's not surprised, but he maintains that he didn't mean to do anything wrong."

Raniere's sentencing is set for Sept. 25.

Raniere once had an international following with a foothold in Hollywood with his self-help group, called NXIVM, that was deemed a cult by critics. His adherents included TV actress Allison Mack, best known for her role as a friend of a young Superman in the series "Smallville," and Seagram's liquor fortune heiress, Clare Bronfman.

Prosecutors had told jurors that someone known as "Vanguard" and revered as "the smartest man in the world" among some followers was actually a creepy con man who barely got passing grades in college.

The sorority, sometimes called "The Vow," was created "to satisfy the defendant's desire for sex, power and control," Assistant U.S. Attorney Moira Penza said in closing arguments .

Among the more damning allegations against Raniere were that he had some women branded with his initials and that he started having sex with one of his followers starting at age 15. Prosecutors said he took a series of nude photos of the teen that were shown at trial, one by one, to the eight women and four men who comprised the jury.

Raniere kept the child pornography stashed in his private study as "a trophy" of "his sexual conquest," Penza said.

The defense argued Raniere was a genuine believer in unconventional means for self-improvement and that all his sexual encounters with female followers of NXIVM were consensual. His behavior could be seen as "repulsive and offensive, but we don't convict people in this country for being repulsive or offensive," Agnifilo said in his closings.

Raniere, 58, was arrested at a Mexican hideout in 2018 following an investigation his Albany-area group.
His organization began to crumble amid sensational reports about The Vow alleging its members were held down and branded in ceremonies at a "sorority house" for them that had a mock dungeon.

Mack and Bronfman, who were named as defendants with Raniere in a federal indictment, pleaded guilty before they could go to trial with him. They didn't testify, leaving a cooperating member of his inner circle and three victims from the secret sorority as the key witnesses.

The cooperator described how female "masters" forced "slaves" for Raniere to give up "collateral" — nude photos and other material that would ruin them if ever made public - to keep them in line

June is almost over, thank Goodness!
by Sis. Abigail

June is "Gay Pride" month in America, and the true Christians all over the U.S. are thankful June is almost over. It is bad enough that homosexuals are able to legally flaunt their sin throughout the year, but the countless Festivals and Parades and Flag waving is too much. A true God-honoring society would never allow this.

A pastor friend of mine once said "If God doesn't do something harsh to America soon, He will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah". We all know God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah for the same sins they are "proud" of all around the U.S. Instead of being fearful or ashamed, they are "proud". Sadly, most so-called "Christians" are indifferent to this sin or are afraid to speak out against it.

We want to share a few bible verses with the readers of New Trend, and remind them that true Christians do not support or condone homosexuality. There is One God; and God calls it sinful.

The Rainbow is a Symbol of God's promise to Man that He will never destroy the Earth by Flood again - it should not be a symbol of a sin that provokes the Wrath of God!


Genesis 9:11-13 "I establish my covenant with you, that never again shall all flesh be cut off by the waters of the flood, and never again shall there be a flood to destroy the earth." And God said, "This is the sign of the covenant that I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for all future generations: I have set my rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between me and the earth."

Bilal Khan and Pro-Iran Assassins.
Critic of Imran Khan, Army & Sect Silenced.

By Ather [Canada.]

{Shaheed] Bilal Khan who was recently killed by Iranian agents exposes Imran Khan slander of Sahaba RA. One of the topics Bilal excelled iduring his short life of 22 years was his expertise in pinning down slander of Sahaba RA hence his murder by Shia agents. Bilal also describes how IK is surrounded by Shia advisors whose slander of Sahaba RA is part of tabarrah belief.

Time to liquidate Iranian sleeper cells in Pakistan and expose their connection with Shia clergy in Pakistan and Ayatollahs in Tehran, Qum and Najaf. Pakistan continues to represent the Ayatollah's totalitarian regime in Washington and still recognizes the regime of Bashar Assad, the Butcher of Damascus.

Red Mosque: Again Targeted by Pakistani Government
Why is the Pakistani government repeating the behavior of General Musharraf? Is Imran Khan the General in Civilian Uniform?

According to the latest news from Islamabad, Pakistani government has cut off the water supply to the Red Mosque and allowed the children there to starve for two days before public protests led to the opening of food supply. Two Islamic scholars have been put under arrest.

The Red Mosque speaks for independent Islamic thought and verbal support for Jihad movements outside Pakistan.

The Blessings of Friday {Al- Jumu'ah}
Ibn Kathir reported that Friday is called Al-Jumu'ah because it is derived from Al-Jam~ literally, 'gathering'. The people of Islam gather weekly on every Friday in the major places of worship.
It was during Friday when ALLAH finished the creation, the sixth day, during which Allah created the heavens and earth.

During Friday, Allah created Adam, and he was placed in Paradise, and ironically, it was a Friday when he was taken out of Paradise.

It will be on a Friday when the Last Hour will commence. There is an hour during Friday, wherein no faithful servant asks Allah for something good, but Allah will give him what he asked for.
[All of this is based upon Hadiths in the authentic collections.]

In the ancient language Friday was called, 'Arubah.
It is a fact that previous nations were informed about Friday, but they were led astray from it.
The Jews chose Saturday for their day of worship and the Christians chose Sunday, which is the day the creation was initiated. Allah chose Friday for this 'Ummah', because it is the day the creation was finished.

It has been authentically reported from the Prophet(Peace be upon him) that he said: islam on The Blessings of "Friday" in Islam
"Allah diverted those who were before us from Friday; for the Jews (the day set aside for prayer) was Saturday, and for the Christians it was Sunday.

And Allah turned towards us and guided us to Friday (as the day of prayer) for us. In fact, He (Allah) made Friday Saturday and Sunday (as days of prayer). In this order would they (Jews and Christians) come after us on the Day of Resurrection.

We are the last among the people in this world and we will be the first among the created beings to be judged on the Day of Resurrection."
(Source~ Narrated by Muslim, An-Nasa'i and Ibn Majah.)

The Prophet (Peace be upon him) also said:
islam on The Blessings of "Friday" in Islam "The best day on which the sun has risen is Friday; on it, Adam was created and on it he was sent down (to earth), on it, his repentance was accepted (by Allah), on it, he died and on it, the Hour will be established.

And every moving creature is listening on Friday, from the time it awakes in the morning, until the sun rises, due to fear of the Hour, except the jinn and mankind, and on this day, there is a time when, if a Muslim slave prays to Allah and asks Him,
He will give him what he asked for."
