LAHORE- Sep 17: Jamaat-e-Islami Emir Sirajul Haq has said the gulf between haves and have nots are widening in the country with the former enjoy all luxuries by holding state resources and latter deprived from even the basic needs of life.

In a statement issued from Mansoora on Friday, he said the government has failed to address the problems of the poor.

The PTI government, he said, deceived the masses in the name of change and Riasat-e-Madina.

He also criticized the former rulers, saying they all had equal share in destruction of the economy and institutions. The PTI, the PML-N and the PPP, he added, had the same agenda and interests. They, he said, were fighting only to serve self-interests and had nothing to do with the problems of the masses.

"The common man is a victim of ruling elite," he said, adding people of Pakistan had long been deceived and ditched by the feudal lords and corrupt capitalists.

Talking to a delegation of influential politicians and dignitaries of NA-130, Liaqat Baloch said that the government was hesitant on the issues of Afghanistan and Kashmir, under the pressure and cowardice of the colonial powers. The Imran Khan government, with its incompetence and failure, is doing irreparable damage to Pakistan on the external front. The people are extremely worried about inflation, unemployment and lawlessness. Successive changes in the police and bureaucracy have eroded the administrative structure. Instead of stabilizing the institutions, there has been an increase in factionalism, conspiracies and groupings to destabilize each other. Jamaat-e-Islami, with its Islamic revolutionary rhetoric and clean character, will launch a nationwide mass mobilization campaign to take the country out of crisis.

Business Owners Challenging New York Mandate on C-19
by Sis. Aisha
[Jamaat al-Muslimeen]

It was just a matter of time before people, especially business owners would begin challenging the NYC mandate, issued by going-out Mayor Bill de Blasio, requiring patrons and staff at gyms, entertainment venues, and dine-in restaurants to get the COVID-19 Vaccine.

Staten Island restauranteurs have sued Mayor Bill de Blasio over his COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate, which the city plans to enforce on September 13th when school begins. The suit was filed on August 17th by Independent Restaurant Owners Association Rescue (IROAR).

This lawsuit points out how previous lockdown restrictions have severely handicapped small businesses all over the city and that this recent vaccine mandate arbitrarily targets certain businesses while ignoring others. However, since the announcement of this COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate, which is called Key to NYC, the Mayor has added nightclubs, all city museums, and pools. But, the lawsuit points out that barbershops, hair salons, and office buildings have been excluded from the mandate.

This is a far-reaching mandate and very un-American because it interferes with the business's relationship with its customers.

This COVID-19 Mandate is the only one of its kind in the country and should it go through be prepared to see this type of unprecedented mandate to be enforced in other parts of the country. New York and California seem to be the two model states that set precedence for new laws elsewhere, including the COVID-19 lockdown.

Italian bakery Pasticceria Rocco displayed a defiant poster in one establishment's window, which said, "We Do Not Discriminate Against ANY Customer based on Sex, Gender, Race, Creed, Age Vaccinated or Unvaccinated. All Customers Who Wish to Patronize Are Welcome in Our Establishment."

According to Andrew Rigie, executive director of the NYC Hospitality Alliance, most businesses are complying in an effort to avoid going back to a full government lockdown.

Again, Mayor de Blasio has not masked why he is imposing this vaccine mandate: It's "strategically focusing on the ways to get more people vaccinated..."

The comments at the end of this article were pretty harsh and ethnically biased against Italians. Staten Island, New York, which had a growing African-American community there, has since become a nationalistic Italian/Irish enclave. Many of them either work in law enforcement or as firefighters. They are also very conservative. Living there now as a nonwhite can be a very unpleasant experience.

None of the backlashes in the comments addressed any scientific data contrary to promoting the COVID-19 vaccine. In other words, it was easy for the court of public opinion to dismiss the lawsuits and the concerns of its complainants because of who they are and where they are from. However, the court of law has yet to render its opinion.

Ignorant Ones Complain about Allah
.As-Salaam Alaikum Wa-Rahmatullahi Wa-Barakatuhu .
Imām Ibn al-Qayyim {may Allāh have mercy upon him} said---
The ignorant one complains about Allāh to the people !
This is the height of ignorance in complaining and in whom the complaint is about.
For if a person were to truly know his Lord, he would never complain of Him {!}
If he truly knew people, he would never complain to them...
The gnostic complains only to Allāh, and the most knowledgeable of the gnostics are those who complain to Allāh about themselves, not others ...
So there are three (3) levels...
  1. The most contemptible of them is to complain to people about Allāh.
  2. The loftiest of them is to complain to Allāh about oneself.
  3. The middle level is to complain to Allāh about others.
My 'Salaams' to all.

Hadith of the Week

Narrated by Ata, r.a.:
'Aisha said If the Prophet
saw a cloud In the sky, he would walk to and fro in agitation, go out and come in, and the color of his face would change, and if it rained, he would feel relaxed." So 'Aisha knew that state of his. So the Prophet said, I don't know (am afraid), it may be similar to what happened to some people referred to in the Holy Quran in the following Verse:
-- "Then when they saw it as a dense cloud coming towards their valleys, they said,
'This is a cloud bringing us rain!' Nay, but, it is that (torment) which you were asking to be hastened a wind wherein is severe torment." (46.24):

Chad protesters denounce the junta
AFPCopyright: AFP

Protesters marching against the junta in Chad took to the streets of the capital, N'Djamena, the AFP news agency reports.

The country is currently being governed by what's known as the Transitional Military Council (TMC) under the leadership of Mahamat Idriss Déby Itno.

He came to power after the death of his father Idriss Déby Itno in April, who had been president since 1990.

The TMC's opponents see its continued rule as a power grab.

They accuse France of being behind the junta, AFP says, and marchers were chanting "Chad is not a kingdom," and "no to French support for the Déby father-and-son system".

The junta has said there will be elections after an 18-month dialogue, but this has not started and the body that's supposed to draw up a new constitution has not been formed, AFP reports
