How to deal with Indian aggression against India's Muslims?
by Kaukab Siddique, PhD

Muslims are deeply hurt by India's extremist leaders in their attacks against India's helpless Muslims.

Most Muslims respond by complaining about India's occupation of Kashmir. In this issue of New Trend I have published a report about the biggest Kashmiri rally against India.

It's a good effort but it is basically flawed because on the one hand it appeals to the Indian occupiers who will definitely respond negatively.

Indirectly it appeals to the western powers [as it was held in New York.]

Remember that it was a major western power, Britain, which cleverly created the Kashmir tragedy. It has not worked for 70 plus years, There is no chance that it will work.

Here are my suggestions:

  1. Appeal to the people of India.

  2. Support the Sikh population of India. Sikhs have suffered the most at the hands of India's military. Subtly support the Khalistan movement for an independent or autonomous Sikh state.

  3. Support the Dalit people of India. They were once known in India as 'untouchables.' They are treated worse than African Americans are in USA.

  4. Support the women of India. Rape is rife in India. Look at Indian movies. Women are taught to treat men as gods. There is a steady stream of conversions to Islam from among women. Modi is aware of this weakness and calls this process 'love jihad.'

  5. Southern India is much friendlier to Muslims than northerners who are 'Brahmin heavy.' Check Indian businesses. Are they northern or southern?

  6. Support the Muslims of Bangladesh. They are strict Muslims and protested in huge numbers when a Hindu woman blasphemed against the Prophet, pbuh. West Pakistani military mistreated Bengali Muslims. Hasina and other elite rulers of Bangladesh are more pro-India than pro-Muslim. [I have been to Bangladesh three times. Most of them still love Pakistan.]
    If Muslims of West and East Pakistan [now Bangladesh] unite, Hindu Brahmin India will be trapped.

People of Pakistan should get rid of misguidance, Focus on authentic Islam, Many Pakistanis do not follow the Sunnah of Muhammad, pbuh. In this month of Rabi ul awwal Pakistanis celebrate though they do not obey the Prophet, pbuh, most of the time.

A scholarly brother has sent me a list of all the great Muslims who DID NOT celebrate meelad [celebrating the birthday of the prophet, pbuh,] and they were the best Muslims. These include the sahaba, the khulafa rashideen, the tabba tabaein and the generations following them.

Let's get rid of our weaknesses and focus on living the real Islam.


Iran Fighting its Women. What a Shame!
15th day!

Tehran, Iran - Protests that erupted following the death of a young woman in police custody continued in Iran for a 15th consecutive day on Saturday amid internet restrictions that show no signs of easing.

Kurdish woman Mahsa Amini, 22, died on September 16 after being in a coma that lasted three days. She had earlier suffered an apparent stroke after being detained by the country's so-called morality police for wearing an "improper hijab" in the capital, Tehran.

Her family has challenged a claim by Iranian authorities that she was not beaten and suffered from pre-existing conditions, as an investigation into her death continues.

Protests that began in Amini's hometown of Saqqez in the Kurdistan province have spread across the country and turned deadly, with dozens believed killed. Many have also been arrested, but no official tally has been released by the authorities.

Students protested at about noon on Saturday in major universities in Tehran and several other cities. But most protests have so far taken place from late afternoon till night, when internet restrictions have also intensified compared with other hours.

President Ebrahim Raisi said in a television interview on Wednesday that a distinction must be made between protests and "riots" which the authorities have accused foreign governments and secessionist elements of organising.

Kashmiri Americans held huge rally at the United Nations in New York.
Massive Indian army has Occupied Kashmir.

New York, Sept 24, 2022. Kashmiri Americans and friends of Kashmir gathered at the United Nations headquarters during the speech of Dr. S. Jaishankar, Indian foreign minister who spoke amid 77th session of the UN General Assembly.

They had come from across the United States to remind the United Nations of her pledge that she has given to the people of Jammu & Kashmir as early as 1948 - that future of Kashmir shall be decided by its people though a fair and impartial plebiscite. The participants were carrying the banners and placards that read: "Modi: face of Indian Terrorism", "Kashmiri Lives Matter Too", "End the Occupation: Free Kashmir", "Stand Up: Speak Up: Free Kashmir", "India: Honor UN Resolutions", "Freedom for all, Freedom for Kashmir," "Indian Forces: Out of Kashmir", "Demilitarize Kashmir", "UN: Wake UP," "No Justice, No Peace", "India: Release All Political Prisoners."

President of Azad Kashmir Barrister Sultan Mahmood Chaudhry addressed the demonstration and assured highly charged crowd that his unstinted effort to internationalize Kashmir issue will continue with full vigor. He stated that it is the duty of both Azad Kashmir and Pakistani government to highlight the human right abuses which have reached to unprecedented proportions. He unequivocally condemned the abominable act of changing the demographic character of the region.

Barrister Sultan appealed to UN and OIC to take serious note of these reprehensible activities and take measures so that these actions are halted. He warned that if this protracted problem is left unattended it can have dangerous consequences. He assured the well-attended crowd that they will not find government of Pakistan lacking in their support to the Kashmir cause. The president stated that he met that OIC Kashmir Contact Group and acquainted them with the recent situation in Kashmir. All the leaders representing different Islamic countries were solidified in their stance that the human right violations need to be stopped immediately and tripartite negotiations between India, Pakistan and Kashmiri leadership should be facilitated. He further stated that he had confabulations with Pakistani Foreign Minister, and he stated that the country will not demur in their support to Kashmiris. He assured the attendees he will increase his efforts to bring world attention to this issue and will travel to nook and corner of the world to accomplish his goal. He appealed to people not to lose hope and affirmed their cumulative efforts will enable Kashmiris to realize the dream of achieving freedom.

Sardar Haleem Khan, Chairman, JKLF and main organizer of the rally emphasized that no solution of Kashmir will be acceptable if it does not recognize the unfettered right of self-determination of the people of Jammu & Kashmir. Sardar Haleem denounced the life imprisonment handed down by an Indian special court in New Delhi to Muhammad Yasin Malik, one of the most prominent leaders of Kashmir, and Chairman of the Jammu Kashmir Liberation Front (JKLF).

Dr. Ghulam Nabi Fai, Chairman, World Forum for Peace & Justice asked the United Nations that the application of international law should not be selective in resolving the international conflicts. He drew the urgent attention of the Secretary General to the situation in Indian Occupied Kashmir brought about by the atrocities on a massive scale which are being remorselessly perpetrated by 900,000 Indian military and paramilitary forces on unarmed men, women, and children. He warned the world powers that the status quo in Kashmir, if left unchanged, will only result in a growing spiral of death and even greater regional instability. The UN must take an active role in finding a peaceful and permanent solution to the crisis.

Dr. Fai urged Dr. Jaishankar to read during his leisure time Huffington Post which says that Indian democracy is dying in silence in Kashmir. Earlier, Dr. Jaishankar had conveyed to the world body the greetings from the world's largest democracy.

Dr. Fai added that it is utter shocking that Dr. Jaishankar has the temerity to proclaim during his speech at the UN General Assembly that in Ukraine, India is "on the side that respects the UN Charter and its founding principles." His statement makes a mockery of the United Nations Charter and International Law. Dr. Jaishankar knows it well that India's aggression and occupation of Kashmir violates United Nations Charter and can never be justified under international law.

Dr. Imtiaz Khan, Professor at George Washington University Medical center stated that abuses on innocent people of Indian occupied Kashmir continue unabated. After the revocation of article 370 and 35A more than 900,000 military and paramilitary occupation forces are holding the people as hostage. Daily crackdowns are a routine and during this process the civilians especially the youth are targeted. During the search operations under the pretext to flush militants the civilian residences are looted of their valuables, womenfolk are harassed, and young men are eliminated with impunity.

Dr. Khan added that the genuine leadership of the valley have been incarcerated and many of them like Yasin malik have been subjected to solitary confinement and implicated under false charges. Land grab movement by occupation forces is continuing at breakneck speed and thousands of acres of land has been taken over by the occupation forces. Kashmiri people are being devoid of their property and armed Hindu militants are being settled on these properties. There is government sponsored policy to infuse drug culture so that youth get addicted to this menace and are weaned away from the freedom movement. All of these steps are being taken under well planned scheme so that Kashmiris are restricted to ghettos, their employment opportunities are scuttled, and they are deprived of religious freedom.

Dr. Khan warned that the situation in the region is highly explosive. Kashmir is sitting on power keg and slight trigger can catapult the situation to point of no return. With the absence of leaders like Syed Ali Geelani, Yasin Malik, Shabir Shah, Masarat Alam (later being in Indian jails for years), it is very likely that youth may be forced to take extreme steps and macabre of violence with no recourse. We appeal the United Nations to take practical measures that will dissuade India to Indulge in gross human right abuses against innocent Kashmiri population and sway them to participate in tripartite negotiations involving Pakistan and genuine leadership of Kashmir.

Khan alerted that the onus lies on the international community to convey to fascist Indian government that the human right violations against the people of occupied Kashmir should stop. The reprimand should not be restricted to mere condemnations and resolutions, but it should be made clear that unless India reverses the measures it can face severe sanctions which will hurt its economy. It is clear from the Indian behavior unless punitive measures are taken it will not dissuade from inflicting horrific crimes on the people of Indian occupied Kashmir. International bodies like UN should remember that Kashmir can prove to be a nuclear flash point between India and Pakistan and if the dispute is left unresolved it can prove disastrous not only to the region but half of the world population. This is high time UN Secretary General ignores Indian protests and send its envoy to occupied Kashmir to assess the situation there.

Government's Transgender Trick
Won't Work
by Qaiser Sharif

LAHORE: Sep 30: Jamaat-e-Islami Emir Sirajul Haq has asked the government to take back the transgender law or get ready to face protest movement.

"We give one week to the government to accept the transgender amendment act proposed by the JI senator Mushtaq Ahmad Khan," he said while addressing a press conference at Mansoorah on Friday.

Earlier, he presided over a consultative meeting of the leaders of different religious parties, scholars, lawyers and heads of seminaries on the trans law. Rejecting the law, the participants decided to hold a protest demonstration at The Mall on next Friday.

The JI chief said the bill was against the Quran and Sunnah and the constitution of Pakistan. It had been passed in a hurry on last days of the PML-N government in 2018 without consultation, he said, clarifying the JI had since then been opposing the law which was a conspiracy to attack the Islamic norms of Pakistan society.

He said the agents of western powers and secular lobbies were aimed at damaging the ideological basis of the country. These powers, he said, had earlier destroyed the national economy under a plot. The three ruling parties, he said, were always on board whenever the western lobbies proposed any agenda.

The FATF-backed laws were also unanimously adopted by the PTI, the PML-N and the PPP, authorizing the IMF to impose decisions on key strategic issues and policy making matters.

Domestic Violence Law, he added, passed in PTI tenure was also an attack on family system.

He clarified the JI could never even think to oppose the rights of transgenders rather it wanted they would be provided all rights.

Instead of providing them rights, he said, the law in question was aimed at spreading the culture of vulgarity in the society.

To a question, he said the JUI-F head Maulana Fazlur Rahman had also opposed the trans law. He said he would also contact Maulana Fazl, Professor Sajid Mir, Allama Raja Nasir Abbas and other leaders of religious and political parties on the matter.

JI vice-emir Liaqat Baloch, Dr Farid Paracha, Dr Mirajul Huda Siddiqui, secretary general Ameerul Azim, Pir Safdar Gilani, Allama Ibtisam, Hafiz Kazim Raza Naqvi, Maulana Abdurauf, Asif Hameed, JI secretary information Qaisar Sharif and other leaders attended the event.

Shaikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi Passes Away. One of the greatest Muslims, taught Liberation of Palestine

Shaikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi passed away at 96 on September 26. He was probably the greatest Islamic preacher of modern times.

Between Saudi abuse and ICNA hypocrisy.

We thank Dr. T for sending us a picture of al-Qaradawi leading the funeral prayers of Maulana Maudoodi for which a vast crowd turned up. It is a famous picture but it was
good to see it again, mashaAllah. These were two servants of Allah who never betrayed the cause of Islam.

Saudi media have been insulting and abusing Shaikh al-Qaradawi for a long time. It is no surprise coming from "Saudi" Arabia which is ruled by an "alleged" murderer, MSB, who had his critic strangled and then dissolved in acid and "disappeared" [the notorious case of Khashoggi, whose wife is still looking for justice.]

The Saudi rulers hated al-Qaradawi because he taught jihad against Israel and urged Palestinians to attack Israel and its supporters.

At the other extreme is America's Muslim organization ICNA which supports the government and dare not condemn the "legitimacy" of Israel.

ICNA played its typical game. It praised al-Qaradawi but left out the most important aspects of

  1. He condemned Israel. Never supported the "two state solution" and urged Muslims to attack Israel. For him martyrdom was the highest Islamic attribute. [The word would make ICNA's leader Bukhari pass out. Most ICNA members don't know that during the US attacks on Muslim countries, Bukhari was travelling globally supporting America, even slept in a US embassy to hide
    his activities.]

  2. Al-Qaradawi is Egyptian and opposed the Egyptian tyrant and mass murderer General Sisi.

As a result the Shaikh had to leave Egypt and lived in exile.

By censoring Al-Qaradawi's greatest attributes, ICNA reduced him to the level of a distinguished Islamic preacher and no more.

Muslims should notice what is going on: The treacherous and murderous rulers overseas and their sweet talking puppets in America.

{This is in response to an extensive program on WHYY [part of National Public Radio], 3 days back which was very one sided and described Himmler as "Satan"}

Why Should Muslims be Interested in Germany?

I was going to do this as a conventional book review but by the time I finished reading its 600 pages, I realized that no regular book review could do justice to it.

True Himmler by David Irving. [ Sub title: A biography quoting the real letters, diaries, and papers of Heinrich Himmler, and his wife and daughter and others in his life, with selections of photographs from personal albums.]. 639 pages. Focal point, 2020.

Readers of New Trend might have noticed something very unusual happening in Germany during the Israeli assault on Gaza and the desecration of Masjid al-Aqsa. Germans were openly protesting against the Israeli attacks and doing something unthinkable over 75 years:: burning the Israeli flag.

As you may know, it's a crime in Germany to say anything even slightly non-critical of the German regime from 1933 to 1945. Germany was humiliated and silenced after its defeat after the war.

All of Germany has been treated as an evil country which broke all the rules of civilization and decency. In that historic context, only a scholar with unequalled courage and objectivity [by European standards] could write about the personal life of a German leader hated even more than Hitler. [if that is possible] .

Anyone writing about the personal life of a hated leader who is projected as the epitome of evil in the West would have to face the objectivity test.

Any even handed account would be seen as propaganda. What David Irving did was very difficult and took years of research, He took himself out of the picture and depended entirely upon the secret writings of the characters in his story of Himmler. The people who wrote these diaries and personal notes and instructions never thought that these writing would appear in a monumental book.

He wrote about Himmler's parents and his childhood. Himmler was a church going child and youth. He was strict beyond measure in his financial dealings even with the pocket money his father gave him.

He did not drink or smoke or fornicate and stayed strictly within his marriage till very late in life.

Not many, if any, western leaders can compare with him in his character.

Irving traces step by step Himmler's attraction towards National Socialism. Readers should remember that Germany was not only defeated in the First World War but humiliated. It was shredded of its choicest provinces and industrial areas. The French and the Poles enjoyed Germany's resources and Germany was put under a ban which would not allow it to have its own armed forces.

The economy nose dived and the people were poverty stricken. Money had no value. The only people who prospered were the tiny minority which controlled the banking system and finance. Hitler spoke against them and drew their ire globally.

The more he spoke, the greater Germany came under international abuse and propaganda. A global boycott was placed on Germany.

Irving documents the growing isolation followed by physical attacks and murder of German diplomats and officials overseas.

Himmler stayed away from the waves of prejudice and then hate which swirled through Germany. As is usual in a tight economy, leftist groups and Communists organized themselves. There were battles in the streets between the Communists and National Socialists labelled as the SA. These were gangsters fighting gangsters.

The SA not only defeated the Communists but gained so much support that at a certain point they decided to overthrow Hitler and kill all his top supporters.

Himmler formulated a tightly disciplined force known as the SS which overthrew the SA. This was a brutal internal conflict and Irving gives us the details, sparing no one.

The SS came to be the best fighting force in Europe. It not only protected Hitler but supported Germany's forays into Austria and Czechoslovakia.

How did Himmler deal with a situation of conflict and then war? The book becomes a thriller full of tension. of a moral person trapped in a bad situation.

There were no angels in World War 2 and Himmler was seen as the worst of Hitler's commanders. The SS came to be the most powerful force in Germany.

The book does not discuss the war itself but when Germany was defeated, the victors did not treat Himmler as the greatest commander of an invincible force. He was treated like dirt and murdered in cold blood. To undermine the German morale, the victors spread the story that he committed suicide, which was against his entire belief system.

Irving carries out clinical research to prove that it was not suicide but murder.

I highly recommend this book and congratulate David Irving for research work which has no equal.
