Jamaat al-Muslimeen Shoora Meeting


Top level activists. How to deal with non-Muslims, Particularly in China, France, USA and UK.

On November 1, 2020 Jamaat al-Muslimeen's Shoora committee met by Zoom.
The main speakers and their topics were as follows:

The program was moderated by Br. Kaukab Siddique.

Imam Badi made the final du'a.

Consensus of the Jamaat as understood by the ameer of the Jamaat, Kaukab Siddique:

  1. We as Muslims do not hate anyone's religion. Christians and Jews are known as the people of the Book in the Qur'an. We only hate and speak out against those who claim to be Christians and Jews but clearly do not obey the Book.

  2. The people in power in France claim that they have the right to blaspheme against and insult the Prophet Muhammad, pbuh, but the French rulers and artists do not allow the expression of criticism of the Holocaust narrative. If they were truly only protecting the freedom of expressions, they would allow freedom for expression for all and against all. Instead, they single out the Prophet, pbuh, which proves it is a blatant attack on Islam.

    We hope for peace but we condemn the French attacks on the blessed Prophet, and we urge all peaceful moves which would make the French rulers understand that Muslims feel there is never a time to allow people the "freedom" to insult God or any His Messenger's, whether it be Jesus, Moses, Muhammad, Job, David, Joseph, or any of the holy Messengers - may peace and blessings be upon them all.

  3. The tragedy of China's Muslims being put in concentration camps, is the biggest tragedy of modern times. We urge all Muslims to pay attention and speak out in protest.

Muslim world unites against France

 Anti-France Protests

Anti-France protests: Muslims hold rallies worldwide as tensions rise

Thousands of conservative Muslims in countries around the world have held protests to vent their fury at France over its perceived animosity towards Islam.

Anti-French rallies erupted after Friday prayers in Pakistan, Bangladesh, Lebanon and other countries.

 Anti-France Protests

Protesters called for a boycott of French products and condemned President Emmanuel Macron. He has become a target in several Muslim-majority countries for his recent comments about Islam.

Mr Macron has called Islam a religion "in crisis" and defended the right of a magazine to publish cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad.

The backlash intensified after a suspected Islamist extremist killed a French teacher who showed the cartoons in class. Mr Macron said the teacher "was killed because Islamists want our future", but France would "not give up our cartoons".

Many Muslims saw Mr Macron's remarks as an insult, as depictions of the Prophet Muhammad are widely regarded as taboo in Islam.

Protests against France have been taking place in a number of Muslim countries for days.

On Friday, they continued amid heightened tension, a day after another suspected Islamist attack in the French city of Nice.

 Anti-France Protests

In Pakistan, police fired tear gas at thousands of demonstrators marching towards the French embassy in Islamabad.

 Anti-France Protests

Witnesses said some protesters tried to break through police barricades.

Protesters in Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh, beat and set fire to effigies of Mr Macron and carried placards denouncing him as an Islamophobe.

One protest leader addressed the crowd, saying Muslims would not allow their beliefs to be ridiculed: "Doesn't matter whether it is France, America, Russia or any other bigger power in the world, we won't tolerate anybody making fun of our beloved Prophet."

Meanwhile, thousands of worshippers rallied after Friday prayers at al-Aqsa Mosque, the third holiest site in Islam, in Jerusalem's walled Old City.

They condemned the publication in France of cartoons showing the Prophet.

"A nation whose leader is Muhammad will not be defeated," some protesters chanted.

Maulana Fazlur Rahman Rebuts Imran regime.

October 31, in a public interview, the leader of Jamiat Ulema, Fazlur Rahman, said that no one is above criticism. The regime, brought by the military, should not claim that

military or the regime cannot be criticized or that those who criticize are Indian agents.

The elections were rigged, he said. The opposition is strongly pro-Pakistan and will not accept attempts by the regime to silence them.

Maulana Fazlur Rahman has widespread support in northern areas but does not teach violence.

Kashmir is Top Issue.
Ban of French Products

By Qaiser Sharif

BAJAUR: November 1: Jamaat-e-Islami Emir Senator Sirajul Haq on Sunday launched the countrywide protest movement against government policies from Bajaur, issuing warning to the rulers to provide relief to the masses or get ready to go home.

Thousands of people, holding JI flags and banners against inscribed with slogans against rulers, participated in the rally.

"The PTI government has committed every blunder from destroying economy to making controversial the key institutions in two years. The present rulers have proved themselves most incapable in history of the country," said Senator Siraj.

It had become essential to hold a march towards Islamabad to send these rulers packing, he said, telling the government that if the JI held a sit-in in federal government, it would not return without getting rid of the present regime.

"If the Imran Khan government wants to prolong its tenure for another two three months, it will have to control inflation."

He said people could no more sit silent over skyrocketing prices and increasing unemployment and they got no option now but to come to the streets.

"People are ready to hold the rulers from neck. The government left with only option to fix the public issues."

The JI chief came down hard over the government failure to stop terrorists' attack, saying the bomb blast in a mosque in the heart of Peshawar city exposed the rulers' capability to thwart the nefarious designs of enemies. No one from the government, he said, had bothered to visit to the families of the innocent victims of the Peshawar bomb blast.


Senator Siraj called for boycott of French products and server all types of diplomatic and trade relations with Paris. He said Pakistan was established to be the citadel of Islam hence its duty of Islamabad to send clear message to those who attacked the religion. He warned the government and secular lobbies against hatching conspiracies to damage the Pakistan ideology, saying the evil designs will be responded with full force.

He also expressed concern over the prime minister's overwhelming commendation to the Chinese government system, saying after deceiving masses in the name of Madina-like-state for two years, Imran Khan had now started idealizing the Chinese model.

"Let me clear one thing to you [rulers] that Pakistan's destiny is the Islamic system. If Imran Khan likes China, England or USA, he must go there to live his life."

The other leaders of the JI also spoke on occasion.



Hundreds of Thousands in Chechnya join a massive Protest Rally against France's support of cartoons insulting The Prophet (pbuh).

A video of the Protest in Chechnya showing Ramzan Kadyrov speaking to a massive crowd was published by al-Jazeera but ignored by the western media.


Ramzan Kadyrov, the leader of Chechnya, directed bold words to Macron: "You are forcing people into terrorism, pushing people towards it, not leaving them any choice, creating the conditions for the growth of extremism in young people's heads. You can boldly call yourself the leader and inspiration of terrorism in your country,"

 Marwa Khanafer

Quebec Activist Marwa Khanafer Wears A Hijab And Walks A Social Tightrope.

Expressing her anger without giving ammunition to racists can sometimes be a challenge for Marwa Khanafer.

Marwa Khanafer weighs each word carefully when she speaks publicly. Dressed in her hijab, she knows that she has no leeway to make mistakes. She has learned the hard way that a lightly chosen word can backfire on not just her but her entire community.

"When I make a mistake, it's as if I represent all Muslim women," the young activist lamented. "But if I do something right, then they just associate that with me as a person."

On the eve of her 26th birthday, the Quebecer of Lebanese origin — who was born and raised in the Democratic Republic of Congo — already has several causes to her credit. As soon as she arrived in Canada in August 2016, she became involved with UNICEF and Amnesty International at the University of Montreal, where she was completing a master's degree in international studies. She also served as secretary and then president of the student association.

Listening to her talk, you quickly come to realize that she doesn't tolerate injustice, no matter what form it takes. By her own admission, she's concerned by "all causes that affect human rights." But really, it was in 2019, while the mobilization against the Law on State Secularism was raging, that she found her very own cause.

"Bill 21 is really something that came looking for me," she says. "Because now you're attacking a whole visible minority. And you can say that you're targeting all people who wear religious symbols, but let's be clear, you're targeting Muslim women specifically."

She's outraged that Quebec, where she constantly hears about women's rights and gender equality, "prohibits a category of people, especially women, from developing and pursuing their dreams." She takes every opportunity to oppose this "discriminatory and racist" law. She thinks, for example, of those young women who have always dreamed of teaching and who will only be able to do so if they agree to remove their veils.

From demonstration to demonstration, the young woman doubles down on her speeches. She always reiterates that she's only speaking for herself. She's always careful to use words that she describes as "less harsh" so that those who listen to her aren't able to accuse her of insulting Quebecers.

But even though she wants to protect the sensitivities of some of her counterparts, there is nevertheless one expression that she does not intend to censor: systemic racism.

"Systemic racism is a fact, it's a reality," she says. "If we want to solve the problem, we've got to first address it and recognize it." And there is no doubt in her mind that Bill 21 perpetuates this systemic racism, even if Francois Legault still refuses to admit its existence.
That's why, even though the law was passed on June 16, 2019 — the day she describes as the biggest disappointment of her activism career — she doesn't intend to stop voicing her discontent.

Hadith of the Week

Narrated by
Abu Sa'id Al-Khudri, r.a.:
Allah's Messenger (ﷺ) said,
"When the believers pass safely over (the bridge across) Hell, they will be stopped at a bridge in between Hell and Paradise where they will retaliate upon each other for the injustices done among them in the world, and when they get purified of all their sins, they will be admitted into Paradise. By Him in Whose Hands the life of Muhammad is everybody will recognize his dwelling in Paradise better than he recognizes his dwelling in this world."

As-slamu alaikum,
Ibn al-Jawzi said:
The ship of your lifetime is approaching the coast of the graveyard. What is the matter with you that you are busy inside the ship trying to acquire goods?

And Sufyān al-Thawrī said, "Whoever reaches the age of the Prophet [63 years of age], peace be upon him, then let him acquire a burial shroud for himself."

So prepare for departure!
O Allah, grant us good in this world and good in the life to come and keep us safe from the torment of the hell Fire.


Op Ed by Michael Rubin

Let's call China's policy toward its Uighur Muslim population what it is: genocide. Not since Nazi Germany has there been such a systematic policy of internment and cultural eradication as what President Xi Jinping now wages against China's Muslim minority. The People's Liberation Army and other Chinese security forces may not push Uighurs into gas chambers, but the mass, forced sterilization of Uighur women has the same effect upon the population, only delayed.

While many Muslim countries criticize France for President Emanuel Macron's criticism of radical Islamism in the wake of the murder of French school teacher Samuel Paty and Thursday's terrorist attacks in Nice, the three most vociferous politicians criticizing Macron have been Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan, and former Malaysian Premier Mahathir Mohamad.

The irony here is that all three are among the most apologetic to China and its assault on millions of its Muslims. Pakistan backed China's crackdown at the United Nations. Turkey and Malaysia did not sign on to that endorsement but separately appeared to back Beijing with their silence. Erdogan has even gone so far as to extradite Uighurs back to China, where they face imprisonment or death.

However, the biggest problem is not only letting China get away with murder but rather that their apologia for Beijing creates a precedent by which other countries can target and seek to eradicate their own Muslim majorities.

Consider Russia, for example, which faces not only a growing Muslim population drawn from the Caucasus but also from Tatarstan. While only 10% of Russia today is Muslim, that proportion might increase to one-third of the population by 2050. However, dry demographic statistics hide what might most concern Russian leaders: an even greater proportion of Muslims among the conscript-age population. Given how Russian President Vladimir Putin has tried to revive the Russian Orthodox church and its ties to Russian nationhood, he might look at demographic tea leaves and see a situation far more "dire" than Xi faced and conclude that he could get away with similar measures against Russian Muslims. Should he choose to do so, the countries signing on to the China apologia would have little grounds to complain.

Other countries with large Muslim minorities but historical ties to other religions (Ethiopia, India, or even Sri Lanka) could likewise embrace the China precedent. Burma [Myanmar], to some extent, already has, even though it is small enough not to have much diplomatic weight with which to defend itself.
Erdogan, Khan, and Mohamad might picture themselves as defenders of the faith, but they have essentially become the equivalent of kapos, the Jewish concentration camp administrators who collaborated in exchange for privilege or short-term safety. They may imagine their anti-French bluster will win them populist plaudits from the broader Muslim community, but in reality, they will be dismissed in history as among the greatest betrayers of the Muslim community's ability to practice their faith openly and in peace.

Israel Wants to Expand City to Restrict Arab Population

The Israeli government is trying to expand the jurisdiction of the northern Jewish town of Harish by nearly 50 percent to prevent Palestinians from forming a majority in the area, Haaretz reported.

The request, proposed by the Interior Ministry, to expand its boundaries comes following a report released by the Housing Ministry, which detailed the expected demographic changes in the area to 2050. The figures predict that the Arab population in the area will reach 51 percent of the total 700,000 expected residents.

"The picture of the demographic growth in the surrounding space shows the area is marked by a growing, significant rate of Arab population," the Housing Ministry's document stated.

"The demographic balance is about to change: A predominantly non-Jewish population will inhabit the district."

The town had already been expanded twice despite warnings from Adalah, the Palestinian human rights organization based in Haifa, that the move would impact negatively upon the area's surrounding Arab towns and villages and their physical development.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced that transforming Harish into a city is a "great Zionist message, also directed at Israel's enemies."

Located along the coastal plain between Tel Aviv and Haifa, Harish has a population target set by the government of 100,000. At present, hundreds of its homes stand vacant.
