OWAISI’s Unacceptable CLAIM


Owaisi calling Muslims dying of Corona as Martyrs is Dangerous.
Martyrdom in Abrahamic religions

One of the greatest myths in Abrahamic religions is that “ its greatest heroes were not those who did good deeds , but those who died in the most painful way. If you are willing to die in an excruciating end in the arena then whatever your previous Holiness or lack there of, you went straight to heaven. Martyrdom wiped out all sins on the point of death. As well as getting there faster, martyrs enjoyed preferential terms in paradise , getting to wear the much desired martyrs’ crown. Tempting celestial terms were offered. It was said that the scripture promised multiplication even to 100 times of the brothers children parents land and homes. Precisely how this celestial sum has been calculated is not clear but the general principle was : those who died publicly and painfully would be best rewarded.”*

As tales of martyrdom evolved the descriptions became more graphic and colourful. Martyrdom was open to all, open to the poorest of poor, the uneducated and even women who were willing to become martyrs.
‘In martyr poems, mothers watch the martyrdom of their children with great relish’. ‘In one story, mother rejoice that she has borne a son who will die a martyr and embracing his body congratulates herself on her offspring.”

We saw this in the recent times the Shamiana Bagh in Delhi, an episode where a child of three months was heartlessly allowed to die in the cold, and the mother said something similar. It is really a shameful state of affairs of how individuals can be brainwashed into doing very foolish things. What is worse the total absence of condemnation from any of the pseudo liberal brigade.

The call by Owaisi, a Muslim MP from, Hyderabad to treat all those who have died of corona as martyrs is really troublesome. It can lead to many naïve and uneducated or overzealous Muslims to take his word as true and consider themselves to be martyrs in case they can infect more people around them and send them to their conception of heaven or hell.

Under the present conditions it is all the more dangerous in the context of many mullas calling the recent Coronavirus as a punishment brought upon by allah on non believers. There has been hardly any condemnation of the enormity of the damage caused by holding the Tabligi Jamaat meeting over nearly 2 weeks during which hundreds have been infected with coronavirus. During and after the meet participants have been moving freely all around the country and spreading this deadly virus to those who came in contact with them.

Many of them would not have known the danger they are subjecting others to. However quite a few, including the organisers must have known of the dangers , that corona affected participants of Tablighi Jamaat are walking virus bombs.


There have been repeated instances of sections of public beating up doctors, enumerators and police personnel, preventing them from carrying out their duties in Corona virus sensitive areas. Hyderabad has seen such incidents.

We all know that terrorists may be intelligent but can be very naive and act foolishly when influenced by crafty persons.

So there is definite possibility that some individuals who have a heard Owaisi, who is a member of the Parliament from the constituency of Hyderabad and Secunderabad, and is a well-known Muslim leader, to take his words as true and embark on a foolish journey to infect non-believers.

Owaisi must immediately advice his partymen and other Muslims not to undertake any foolish acts, seeking martyrdom through spreading of Corona Virus to others. Owaisi’s statements will be used by Pakistan in its propaganda.

In Kashmir, snow is melting and The mountain passes have opened, and Pakistan has accelerated its infiltration of Jihadis into Kashmir valley. Add to this the fact that Pakistan is having its major quarantine camps in Pakistan occupied Kashmir, a training ground for Jehadis. The possibility of ISI pushing in Corona positive jihadis into the valley cannot be ruled out.

Kashmiri separatists who encourage and harbour jihadis and give them shelter will also be infected with Corona Virus, spreading it further among the innocent Kashmiris in the valley.
The army must be careful in handling the bodies of dead or captured ISI jihadis.

The darkening Age by Catherine Nixey

• Islamic extremists who believe in suicide bombing as martyrdom expect rewards in the afterlife, as specified by the Quran. According to the religious text of Islam, male martyrs will receive 72 virgin maidens in paradise as a reward for their sacrifice.

But what about female martyrs? What is promised to them in the afterlife?According to Muslim scholars, female martyrs can expect to find their husbands in paradise. A woman who had multiple husbands in life will be able to choose the best one as her eternal spouse in the afterlife.Religious commentators state that paradise will make female martyrs beautiful and happy, and satisfied to be with only one man. Additionally, their earthly devotion to Allah will make them superior to the virgin maidens in heaven, and thus their husband’s affections will never stray.

What ISIS Really Wants

Bihari Muslims in Bangladesh-1971


 

Bihar is a state adjacent to Bengal. Bengal was much more prosperous thanks to its being seat of government and Jute Industries than Bihar.

Pre partition, many Biharis moved to Calcutta and Dacca in search of employment.

Post partitions more than half a million Bihari Muslims migrated to the then ‘‘East Pakistan’. They spoke Hindi and Urdu. Initially they were happy when Mohammad Al Jinnah, a WOG lawyer from Bombay became the Governor General of Pakistan (later president), declared Urdu as the sole official and national language of Pakistan. Urdu was the preferred language of Muslims from UP and Bihar. However this move to impose Urdu was not welcome to the people of Bengal who obviously loved their own mother tongue.

 

Sudden influx of refugees upset the balance in East Pakistan.Resultant pressures on employment opportunities, cultural issues were added to the differences between native Bengalis and migrant Biharis.

Biharis in East Pakistan considered themselves superior to locals, native Bengalis, comparing themselves to the original first generation Muslims of Hijra era. Fluency in Urdu, and insistence on speaking Hindi among themselves widened the gap between Bengalis and Biharis.

Inevitably mutual animosities commenced simmering, between both nationalities.

Things took a turn for the worse when Bengalis in East Pakistan realised the second grade treatment given to them by Punjabis in West Pakistan. Economically and politically Bengalis demanded equal status to Western Pakistan. The language issues, birth and ascent of Awami League, arrest of Banga Bandhu are all matters of recorded history.

Terror was unleashed against Bengalis both Hindus and Muslims, on 26 March 2071 by Pakistani army. Thousands of Bengalis, both Muslims and Hindus were massacred and countless women raped.

During thse most critical moments in the history of Bengal, Urdu Hindi speaking Bihari Muslims sided with the Pakistani army, in creating havoc against native Bengalis. They aided the Pakistani army in identifying educated Hindus and Bengalis who were rounded up and summarily executed by Pakistani army, all over East Pakistan. Bihari Muslims guided Pakistani army to Mukhti Bahini hideouts.

Bihari Muslims were confident that Pakistani army will subjugate native Bengalis. They considered themselves Pakistanis first and last, and clean forgot the fact that Bengal was their chosen place of residence. They assumed they had no loyalty to the native people of Bengal who had given them shelter post partition. They did not pay heed to the sentiments of Bengalis, their love of their mother tongue and their desperate desire to free themselves of Oppression.

Post 1971, liberation of Bangladesh, Bihari Muslims (500,000) fully expected that Pakistani army will arrange for their move to West Pakistan. The rich thought flights will be arranged for them. The poor thought they will be transported by sea.

However West Pakistan, dominated by its Punjabi army and Mohajirs from UP had no special sympathy for Bihari Muslims. They were left to fend for themselves in Independent Bangla Desh. Many, more than a 100,000 still live in squalid camps.

Only A few could manage to move out with the help of Red Cross over years.

However keeping with their broad mindedness and charitable disposition, keeping with Supreme Court decisions, Bangladesh has allowed all children of Bihari Muslims, (even those opting to go to West Pakistan) born post 1971 to be naturalised citizens of Bangladesh.

Mosque of Ahmadiyas Destroyed in Pakistan

Mob demolishes mosque belonging to minority sect in Pakistan

ISLAMABAD: Sunni extremists in Pakistan have demolished a historical mosque belonging to the Ahmadiyya community in Punjab province, the latest attack on the minority group in the Muslim-majority country.

A persecuted minority sect, the Ahmadiyya community was declared non-Muslims in Pakistan through a constitutional amendment in 1974 during the tenure of former prime minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto.

The latest mob attack took place in Sialkot last night.

As the local municipal administration started demolishing a private property of an Ahmadiyya follower, about 600 miscreants demolished the nearby mosque later.

Ahmadiyya spokesman Saleemuddin said in a statement that the mob launched the attack at about 11PM and it continued till 3AM (local time).

“The place of worship and the house that has been demolished by the mob in Sialkot have great historical significance for members of the Ahmadiyya community all over the world,” he said.

The police kept on watching the vandalism and did nothing to prevent the attackers, Saleemuddin alleged, adding that it shows the state institutions have surrendered before the elements that are exploiting in the name of religion in order to fulfil their vested interests.

“Ahmadiyya places of worship have been under attack in the past as well, and so far not even a single culprit has been brought to justice,” Saleemuddin alleged.

Ahmadiyya people are not allowed to call their place of worship as mosques.

Former president General Zia -ul -Haq had made it a punishable offence for Ahmadiyyas to call themselves Muslims or to refer to their faith as Islam.

The community is also banned from preaching as well as from travelling to Saudi Arabia for pilgrimage. They are also not allowed to publish any material propagating their faith.

Members of the community in Pakistan have often been targeted, including in terror attacks.

Another Honest Man : This Species Still Survives!


Guj auto driver Raju Bharwad returns Rupees 1.90 crores cheque wrongly issued to him

Bharat Yagnik TNN

Ahmedabad: An Ahmedabad autorickshaw driver has returned a Rs 1.90 crore cheque issued in his name in lieu of three bigha of land acquired for Tata’s Nano plant in Sanand.
Raju Bharwad could have pocketed the sum, but gave an undertaking that he no longer owned the owner the land. He ensured that the names of the new owners are entered in the official records.
Raju’s family owned 10 bigha land in Sanand. Thirty years ago, his grandfather sold three bigha for around Rs 5 lakh on which 40-odd families built small tenements. Later, the Nano plant was to come up in the area and land prices skyrocketed. The Gujarat Industrial Development Corporation (GIDC) acquired land for it at Rs 28 lakh a bigha and started paying farmers in whose names the plots were registered.
Since the new owners had failed to register their names, records still listed Raju and his mother, Baluben, as owners.
“Honesty is one thing my parents taught me. I could not have used money acquired through dishonest means for my family,” says Raju, who lives in a small tworoom house with his wife, three kids and mother.
His family too urged him to take the right step. “I may earn Rs 6,000 per month, but live a life of dignity. I own four bighas, which should take care of my family’s future needs,” he adds.

1984 Riots: 28th Anniversary


’84 riots: Rights group starts campaign

    New Delhi: As the 28th anniversary of the 1984 anti-sikh riots draws near, many human rights groups have come together to “stir” the government in order to secure punishment for those responsible.

     Launching a two-week plan, several groups like Lok Raj Sangathan, Socialist Yuvajan Sabha, the Sikh Forum, etc came together on Friday to make an appeal to the government to bring justice to the families of those who lost their lives in the carnage. For the first time, a photo-exhibition — depicting the scenes of the riots — is going to be held in the capital. From October 21, the human rights groups will begin a ‘mobile photo exhibition’ from Jalianwala Bagh in Punjab and will reach capital on October 30.

    “A petition has been signed by many prominent citizens, including former Justice Krishna Iyer. It will be released online for obtaining signatures in support thereof. This petition will then be sent to the Prime Minister,” said lawyer H S Phoolka, who has been fighting for the families of the victims.

      The group will also hold a candlelight vigil on November 3. TNN

Bandra Fair:Mount Mary Basiica


ALL DECKED UP ON FINAL DAY

Bandra Fair ends on spectacular note

Bella Jaisinghani TNN

     Mumbai: In a spectacular finale, nearly one lakh devotees offered prayers and thanksgiving on the last day of Bandra Fair at Mount Mary Basilica on Sunday. The week-long celebrations, marking the nativity of Mother Mary, began on September 8.

     Fr Aniceto Pereira of the church was at once “relieved and sad” that the festival was at an end. “It has been a spiritually exciting period for me to see so many people arrive for darshan in an expression of faith. We had large crowds for morning services and the church was filled up for evening mass as well,” he said.

      Old-time residents of the area recall how the Feast of Mother Mary was a big household celebration just like Christmas until the 1980s. Children would wear new clothes through the eight days of the festival while their families hosted relatives, who would arrive for darshan from all parts of the city. Sweetmeats were prepared as part of the festive menu.

      Recalling the link that Mother Mary as Our Lady of Good Health bears to the concurrent celebration of Velankanni, social activist Daphne Warapen says that people arrive to seek the Mother’s intercession to cure them of sickness and disease. “Mother Mary is not treated as God but as intercessor. So many people, including the handicapped, come to seek favours, others travel to offer thanksgiving,” she says.

       It is a testimony to the efficiency of the police, BMC and traffic authorities that autorickshaw drivers no longer refuse to ply to the area. Fr Aniceto appreciated the cooperation the church received from every quarter and the residents agreed.

     Daphne has noticed the sea change that has swept the festival over the years, particularly the commercialization and traffic jams that residents complain about. She said, “However, large crowds gather only on the weekend.

     To those who suggest that the fair be discontinued, I would say that one does tolerate similar inconvenience during other festivals as well. In fact, Bandra Fair is a localized event unlike bigger festivals that are celebrated citywide.”

Sea of faithful expected today as Bandra Fair comes to an end

Bella Jaisinghani TNN

Mumbai: Sunday marks the end of the week-long Bandra Fair that surrounds the celebration of Our Lady of the Mount in Bandra. More than 1 lakh people are expected to throng the hill-top shrine and fill the seafront promenade on Sunday.
Each day, thousands of devotees from all parts of the city have been converging at the Mount Mary Basilica for ‘darshan’ of Mother Mary since her birthday celebrations began on September 8. Special Novena prayers were held across this and other churches across the city in the run-up to the festival.
Cecilia Rodrigues, a senior citizen who lives in the neighbouring Mount Unique Apartment, cannot help being amazed at the faith that drives lakhs of devotees up the mount each year. “The numbers are only increasing. We watch them come from all parts of the world, some senior citizens, some young couples, others carrying babies in arms, and we pray that Mother Mary grants their wishes,” she says.
However, the overwhelming “ocean of people”, as she calls it, does deter residents from stepping out during the last three or four days of the fair. “I do visit the basilica for the Novena but not after the fair starts. We are given car passes but the sight of the entire road filled with an unending procession of people precludes the possibility of going out,” she laughs.
Arup Sarbadhikary, who heads a local residents’ association, says he has offered to design proper hawking spaces for vendors selling eatables along the seafront in a garden nearby. “We have offered to seek funds to design not just stalls but also toilets and drinking water amenities. But the authorities are not sure if they can allow a public garden to be used for this, even if it be temporary,” he says.
“I must say the traffic is extremely well managed. There was a time I would leave town during the fair, but this year I stayed back. The BMC, police and traffic department are doing a wonderful job,” he says.
