Indian Express: The rise of global Islamism

But for the word ‘Islamism’, this is well written article acknowledging a phenomenon of Muslims aspiring or working to bring the world under Islamic hegemony i.e. sharia law.

It may be for the first time that an entity in Indian main stream media acknowledges that Muslims are striving to make  India an Islamic state.

The usage of  the word “Islamism’ is misleading to describe this phenomenon as it creates a distinction between Islam and Islamism by creating an impression that ‘Islamism’ has no basis in Islamic theology and is in violation of true spirit of Islam. Yes; just like the words (or phrases) militant Islam, radical Islam or moderate Islam, the word ‘Islamism’ too is a creation of West, multiculturalists, secularists and journalists in media who live in the delusion of existence of a version of Islam, TRUE ISLAM, which condemns ‘Islamism’.

The rise of global Islamism by Tufail Ahmad 

Islamism is a cultural and political movement aimed at eradicating secular and democratic ethos of a society in a bid to pave the way for Islamic ascendancy. It introduces exhibitionist religiosity in people’s lives: there is no issue if a woman wears a burqa, but the problem is a body of religious and political ideas that makes her choose such a dress code. Subsequently, these ideas begin to strike at the roots of individual liberty, women’s freedom, rights of non-Muslims and a free press. The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language defines Islamism as an “Islamic revivalist movement, often characterised by moral conservatism, literalism, and the attempt to implement Islamic values in all spheres of life”. It is pertinent here to look at recent examples of how Islamism unfolds in everyday life.

In 2010, Islamists in Kerala chopped off the hand of college lecturer T J Joseph for setting a question paper which they deemed as disrespecting Prophet Muhammad. In 2011, Islamists led by Syed Ahmed Bukhari forced an exhibition on the “Koran in 53 languages”, organised by Ahmadiyya Jamaat in Delhi, to be shut. Not long ago, actor-producer Kamal Hassan was compelled by Islamists in Tamil Nadu to edit his movie Vishwaroopam for showing that jihadists recited Koranic verses before launching attacks. In May, tens of thousands of Bangladeshis led by Islamist group Hefajat-e-Islam marched through Dhaka, demanding stricter blasphemy laws. Pakistani media is full of reports of Hindu girls being converted to Islam forcibly, Christians being accused of blasphemy, homes and mosques of Ahmadi Muslims being vandalised, Shias being declared infidels and murdered.

In Egypt, Islamists are targeting Christians through lawsuits, accusing them of blaspheming Islam, and liberal Muslims are quitting government jobs. In Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, Islamists killed a man for selling alcohol recently. In Tunisia, Islamists desecrated Jewish cemeteries, and attacked art galleries and cinemas. In Turkey, Islamists stabbed couples who kissed in an Ankara metro station recently to protest against moral policing by Turkish authorities. To make a point, Turkey is building a $100-million mega mosque in America. Jordan is witnessing public demonstrations by Islamists. In a British prison, an Islamist inmate recruited two others to beat up guards in May. In all these cases, there is a single binding factor: Islam. The jihadists of Al-Qaeda variety and Islamists share the same ideological objectives, with the only distinction being that the former are armed and consider themselves fighting on a battlefield against infidels. Their goal is: establishing Sharia rule. Islamism is a softer face of jihadists, sometimes masquerading as liberal Islam in our midst.

Driven by an ideological longing to revive the glory of Islamic caliphate, Islamists are open to using Western tools of election, constitution and the rule of law in introducing Islam in a country’s politics, governance, literature, culture and architecture. Their tactic is to win an election, re-write a country’s constitution to make it compliant with Islam and begin Islamising. Inspired by the success of Islamists in the Arab Spring, even the Taliban are open to using referendums and elections as a tactic.

Last March, Mullah Agha Jan Mutasim, an aide to Mullah Omar, indicated that the Taliban might form a party, noting: “We must launch a political movement to achieve the goals for which we have made so many sacrifices.” Tempted by the rise of Egyptian Islamists, Barelvi scholar Tahirul Qadri returned to Pakistan last December from his self-exile in Canada to engineer a Cairo-like mass uprising in Islamabad, unsuccessfully though, to grab power. “Far from rendering Islamism unnecessary,” writes US academic John M Owen IV, “the Arab Spring has increased its credibility.”

In the past, Islamists have tried to revive the glory of Islam in the political sphere. Such efforts were dubbed as revivalism, fundamentalism, political Islam, extremist Islam, radical Islam and likewise. In the modern democratic era, Islamism is emerging as a distinct attempt to comprehend the meanings of power in all its industrial, corporate and military complexities, as signified by the West.

On the danger of Islamism in post-9/11 years, noted Islamic affairs expert Francis Robinson warns: “[Islamists] understood the issue of power, but in engaging with the West they were deemed to be willing to sacrifice too much that was essential to Islam and Muslim culture. Islamists saw the real danger as Western civilisation itself. Their real enemies were the secular or modernist elites in Muslim societies who collaborated with Western political, economic and cultural forces.”

Commenting on the phenomenon of Islamism, Mehdi Mozaffari of the University Aarhus observes: “Prior to the Islamist revolution in Iran in 1978–79, the terms ‘Islamism’ and ‘Islamists’ are… practically absent from the vocabulary of newspaper reporters.” Now, Islamism is becoming vigorous. For the Islamist parties that rose to power amid the Arab Spring, a policy prototype was readily available from Iran in policies implemented after the 1979 Islamic Revolution, from Turkey where the Islamist Justice and Development Party won 2002 elections and is removing liberal influences from public life, and from Gaza where Hamas captured power through elections to impose Sharia.

In its new avatar, Islamism is also a legal attempt to redefine the relationship between Islam and the state, and between the state and citizens. In 2011, former Islamist Maajid Nawaz observed: “Islamism is the idea that seeks to implement one interpretation of Islam over the rest of society by law. Some Islamists seek to do this through politicking and others through violence.”

In the wake of Arab Spring, Cairo-based journalist Heba Saleh wrote that Islamism does not represent a “broad range of opinion” of people to evolve consensus on government policy-making. In the conception of Islamists, non-Muslim citizens are not permitted to govern or head an Islamic state. Kevin B Anderson, an expert on the Iranian Revolution, sums up: Islamism has “many features and faces, everywhere it is anti-feminist, everywhere it is authoritarian, and everywhere it is intolerant of other religions.”

Islam’s War of Annihilation Against Hindus

Courtesy: frontpagemag.com

A thought-provoking essay written by Narain Kataria, president of the Indian American Intellectuals Forum, sounds a familiar alarm. “Hinduism Faces Eclipse” reveals that “the anti-Hindu forces within and without India are working in tandem on an insidious mission to destroy our civilization and culture, and obliterate Hinduism from the Indian soil.” Kataria further contends that Indians are not facing terrorism, but worldwide jihad, which he calls a “fully globalized franchise…working overtime to destroy all non-Muslim nations.”

Muslims currently comprise 20 percent of India’s 1.2 billion population, the rest of which is overwhelmingly Hindu. But as Narain points out, Indian Muslims have engaged in a series of attacks on Hindu citizens, temples, religious festivals and unarmed pilgrims. He reminds us that a month after the 9/11 attacks in the United States, a proclamation was issued on Al Jazeera television promising that “Hindu India” would also be targeted for jihad. Two months after that, a suicide squad assaulted India’s Parliament House in New Delhi on December 13, 2001, killing 9 and wounding 18. Continue reading →

Jihad in Hooghly, and secular West Bengal govt. arrests Hindus

Essentially the same jihadi pattern is repeating again and again: Muslims encroaching on Hindu space, usurping their properties and lands belonging to the temples; when Hindus protest against this and inaction of police against the culprits, it is Hindus who get arrested in West Bengal.

Media follows a self established ethic of  looking over the violence committed by Indian Muslims so, it doesn’t report this kind of stories. In their policy, Muslims in India can only be presented as victims never the culprits. But as the stories of Muslims being the victims are infrequent, in comparison to stories of Muslims being the culprits which are very frequent, all that media could do is to reminisce Gujarat 2002 – which itself is the making of Muslims – repeatedly, create a hype  and demonize Modi. After all, aim of the policy they follow is creating guilt complex in all Hindus so as to make them move away from their culture and civilization. Indian media, especially value less English media, is the medium for the alliance of Leftists and Muslims to subject Hindus to intellectual terrorism, so that Hindus condemn themselves.

And politicians ! The policy which fetches them votes is right for these Hindu politicians even if it meant to abetting Islamic Jihad. It just happens that they wrap it in colors of social justice and secularism. Muslim politicians use this as leverage to advance Islam, like what happened here: Muslim politicians forced the West Bengal govt., through their ‘silent and implicit’ threat of Muslims not voting for that party in next elections, to arrest Hindus who are hindering Islamic advance.

Muslims have no respect for polity of democracy and secularism. Islam has only contempt for the political concepts of democracy and secularism. For Indian  Muslims, they are just means to realize their own Islamic objective i.e. to make India an Islamic republic again and to make Hindus once again worse than second class citizens in their own land.

Temples vandalised, Hindus under siege in Bengal

How Muslims deceive (!) about what is Dhimmi (Part 2)

In the first part I ( HERE ) showed what Muslims say is never really what it is and meant to be, this kind of deceit  is characteristic of Islamic Dawa (propagating Islam to Non-Muslims). We saw what their scriptures said further about the life of Dhimmi by referring to the those same scriptures the video refers to, we saw how Muslims understood it and how they practiced it for 1400 years – as it existed in Islamic law – and we also saw that present day Islamic nations do practice the same kind of dehumanization of Non-Muslims. We go further and see what else Islamic scriptures and scholars say about Dhimmi and what kind of conditions Dhimmis have to live in (1). Continue reading →

War and peace in Islam, and Jihad, as explained by a Muslim professor – Majid Khadduri; Islamic world view

islamicsThe social media is full of such pictures showing Muslims protesting by holding such banners. But main stream media, sunk in political correctness and politics of multicultural and secularism, and never wanting to hurt the hyper sensitive Muslims,   has no problem with such pictures. And the same media excoriates those who speak against Islamic Supremacism and show pictures like the above one, and labels them as Islamophobes.

The ultimate objective of Islam and Muslims is to bring the entire world under Islamic rule (Sharia law), where in Muslims are superior and Non-Muslims are designated as second rate humans. The efforts put up Muslims to realize this ultimate Islamic objective is Jihad.

Most Hindus have difficulty in believing that Islamic holy scriptures exhort Muslims to wage Jihad against Non-Muslims, even when I quote verses from  Koran and show hadith (sayings and deeds) as proof. They still wanted to believe Islam preaches harmony and mutual respect.

Just few days back pamphlets of PFI – Popular Front of India, Islam based political party – ( media promotes this as a political party seeking unity of Muslims and Dalits) seized by Kerala police say that making Kerala and India an Islamic state should be the aim of Muslims.

A picture floating on facebook, downloaded by me from a Muslim’s page, is this (SIO stands for Students Islamic Organization):

536335_301223649943360_118878048177922_697616_1828710423_nStill Hindus want to believe such Muslims are terrorists and are in perversion of true teachings of Islam.

PFI (Popular Front of India), Islamic terrorism in India and Love Jihad

The proper course of action should be banning Popular Front of India (PFI) – an Islamic outfit, but  any one thinking Congress (I) (or UPA) would be banning PFI can only be called a  naive.

It is the same party which invented and fostered the concept of Saffron Terrorism just to make Hindus stop questioning its policies in dealing with Islamic terrorism as dealing with Islamic terrorism will not fetch any Muslim votes.

New Indian Express reports:

Decision to slap UAPA on PFI activists right: Thiruvanchoor  ( 1 )

Kerala home minister says slapping UAPA ( Unlawful Activities Prevention Act ) on PFI is justified !

For what reasons ? Read the below reports.

21 arrested in Kannur; bombs, swords seized and 20 activists of PFI arrested 

A raid on an unoccupied building in Mayyil area used by alleged activists of the Popular Front of India for secret armed training led to the recovery of two country-made bombs, some swords and a bunch of propaganda material. Over 20 persons have been arrested, police said……

If the above report is about the first raid then then there is another raid by Kerala police on PFI hideouts which is not reported by secular main stream media.

Police raid in Kannur: Deadly explosives seized

There has been yet another raid in Kannur, this time in the residence of Mariyaamvalappil Ibrahim. Police have seized deadly explosives during the course of the raid.  In the raid conducted in Peruvangoor, Kannur, police have seized explosives including 250 detonators, fuse wires etc. Further details are awaited.

The New Indian Express sums it up, esp. the below report deserves a complete reading:

Post-Narath: IM (Indian Mujahideen – a banned outfit) links, foreign funding emerge    {{PFI has links with Indian Mujahideen….}}

Kerala Police unmasks PFI’s terror face

It took the police some time to catch up with the activities of the Popular Front of India (PFI), which projects itself as a socially committed organisation and a saviour of minorities, Dalits and the marginalised. But, with a series of raids on PFI centres across North Kerala yielding lethal weapons and foreign currency, the Kerala Police have now been able to expose the real face of terror of the religious outfit bolstering the apprehension that Islamic fundamentalists are waiting to spring a surprise in the state.

On April 23, Kannur police stormed into the office of Thanal Charitable Trust, an alleged arm of PFI, in Narath and caught 21 PFI activists—all aged between 22 and 31 years—red handed along with human shooting targets, bombs, bomb making materials, gun powder, eight swords, foreign currency notes, Iranian entry card in the name of Sadik Mangalodan to Kish Island free zone and leaflets of PFI and its political outfit SDPI (Social Democratic Party of India).

In another raid on April 25, police recovered a cache of weapons including swords and iron rods from the house of a PFI activist Khamarudden in Narath…..

If all the above reports point to Popular Front of India being a terrorist organization, we need to ask what is the aim of PFI ? Because terrorism is not the end but means to achieving political or religious goals. From (1 ) we also read:

In this case, there are strong evidences of suspicious foreign fund flow, links with terrorist outfits, human shooting targets, community-wise statistics of people, literature showing the necessity of increasing the population of Muslims etc.

Necessity of increasing the population of Muslims ? It is euphemism for making India an Islamic republic i.e. to bring India under Sharia rule or Islamic rule under which all Non-Muslims will be treated as worse than animals.

As Koran says, bringing the whole world under Islamic rule (Sharia law) is on the mind of every Muslim. Re-establishing Islamic rule in India is the wish (or desire ) and aim of every Indian Muslim.

This report might not have specifically mentioned Love Jihad as a weapon for increasing Muslim population but it is clearly an employed strategy and obvious from the reports in the year 2010. Former CM of Kerala Achutanandan said what PFI is up to and Love Jihad as one of the means.

From the year 2010,    Islamic fundamentalists rears its head in Kerala  

It was as savage an attack on political correctness as could be. What was surprising was that it came from a communist and a chief minister, no less. At a recent press conference in Delhi, Kerala Chief Minister V.S. Achuthanandan said: “They want to turn Kerala into a Muslim-majority state in 20 years. They are using money and other inducements to convert people to Islam. They even marry women from outside their community in order to increase the Muslim population.”

Even when Achutanandan said that he was basing his comments on pamphlets seized by police from PFI offices, the media and Congress (I),opposition party in 2010, attacked him and accused him of insulting the entire Muslim community. When the media reported this, it was not about PFI and its subversive activities but condemning the CM for his honest observations. India today blatantly calls the remarks of Achutanandan an attack on political correctness. It means we are not supposed to talk about Islamic terrorism, its objectives and its means.

Like I observed in the beginning, Congress (I) will not ban this PFI. Why ? Afraid of losing Muslim votes ! Afraid that Muslims see it as an attack on Islam and them ! But the same Muslims when asked about activities of PFI will disown and disavow it, atleast for the public face. Because, if Muslims really disavow PFI Congress (I) will surely ban it. Muslims never admit to Islamic terrorism, instead they always claim victim status. In their view it is either Islamophobia or Saffron Terrorism !

One can just look at what PFI is saying even after its members caught red handed, from (1):

“…. This is a clear sign of a police bias against Muslim youths. A section of the police is working not only to harass but also to cook evidences against the organisation,” alleged O M A Salam, general secretary, PFI.”

It has to be when Koran preaches to Muslims that mere presence of disbelief in Islam is an act of aggression on Islam and Muslims and the only God Allah !

Not much of the main stream media has reported and written about this news this time, probably fearing that it shows them in bad light considering how they condemned and ridiculed Former CM of Kerala Achutanandan last time it reported about PFI in the year 2010. And the same media will be eagerly and shamelessly publishing what Congress (I) leaders say about so called, and ‘mythical’, Saffron Terrorism like sermons.

 

Non-Muslims do not have equal rights in an Islamic state, a moderate Islamic scholar says

In one of my posts  (  here  )about a video made by a Muslim explaining what is Dhimmi ( a Non-Muslim subject living in a Muslim nation or under Islamic law), I pointed out that the video nowhere mentions that Non-Muslims i.e.  have same rights as Muslims do. And I showed how that video dissimulates by concealing large amount of Islamic teachings.

This is another video made by an Ahmadi Muslim showing a lecture by a very prominent Islamic scholar. Sure he edited that video and speech but the speech is still clear about all important message i.e. Non-Muslims do not have equal rights.

Islamic Supremacism, hypocrisy and arrogance in full display in the speech of Turkey’s President

Koran teaches that mere presence of disbelief in Islam constitutes an act of aggression on Muslims.

And what should anyone think it says about Islam and Muslims that non-Muslims cannot enjoy the same freedoms in Muslim majority nations as Muslims enjoy in Non-Muslim nations like India, European countries, US and in many other infidel nations around the world ?

How should any one feel when Muslims still try to lecture Non-Muslims about human rights, tolerance and peace ?

But in a world, when insanity in the form of political correctness and left-influenced concepts like secularism and multiculturalism dominate, nothing happens and fascist force like Islam marches on.

Muslims in Europe construct mosques, openly proselytize and enjoy equal rights. Muslim nations not only deny equal rights to religious minorities, i.e. Non-Muslims, and play a passive role when Muslims engage in violence, on regular basis, against Non-Muslims. OIC (Organization of Islamic Conference) openly rejected United Nations Charter on Human Rights and embraced human rights as defined in Islamic Sacred Law (Sharia Law) in its Cairo Declaration.

Turkeys President, Abdullah Gül, ( HERE ) says:

European countries will face new humanitarian tragedies leading to mass killings of people if they continue in their failure to embrace tolerance toward different cultures and religions.

What about Turkey, so called modern and secular Muslim state and Non-Muslims living in it ? Do they enjoy equal rights ? Read the below report:

Turkey’s non-Muslims seek equal citizenship rights in constitution

Pure hypocrisy ! Yes.

But it makes sense when we see how Islam defines tolerance and aggression. Presence of Non-Muslims in Europe or anywhere, outside the Dar al-Islam, is aggression on Muslims. The fact that Europe is not living by Dhimmah is intolerance for Muslims.

Sharia and Dhimmitude in a Tamil village; Hindus under siege, and Muslims ask for protection !

One of the humiliating conditions enforced on Non-Muslims living under Islamic state is that Non-Muslims do not display their religious symbols publicly and Non-Muslims do not celebrate their festivals in public. These conditions are not just some Islamic laws but also are part of Islamic beliefs which inform and influence the culture and behavior of Muslims.

It should be noted that laws already exist in many Indian cities that prohibit Hindus from taking processions in to Muslim dominated areas without the reciprocity of prohibiting Muslims similarly from taking processions in to Hindu dominated areas or prohibiting Muslims from displaying those green flags and other symbols all over the cities including  in the places where there is no significant Muslim population.

And this below incident also highlights that as demographics change how behavior of Muslims changes and how they start to persecute Hindus; hopelessly, the history is repeating itself.

Hindu Muslim inter-religious marriages (9): A Hindu guy killed for marrying a Muslim girl

This did not happen in Pakistan or Bangladesh, and of course, to think a Non-Muslim guy can marry a Muslim girl in any Islamic country is an indication of ones ignorance of Islam and its beliefs, Jihad and apartheid ‘Dhimmah’.

This is how Asian Age reports: Man murdered for marrying Muslim girl

See that. Will it be on similar line if a Muslims guy was killed?

How many media entities reported on this and subsequent violence? I do not know but what I know is the whole media along with ‘secular !’ Muslim community leaders – and secular Hindu politicians – would have made a huge issue if the victim was a Muslim and the girl was a Hindu. Remember all that 24 hour live coverage of Rizwanur-Todi incident in Calcutta, a singular event which changed political equations in West Bengal.

Marriage law in Islam: Islam allows Muslim men marrying Non-Muslim women and bring their offspring as Muslims. But it strictly prohibits Muslim women marrying Non-Muslim men. According to existing social customs and traditions, a man takes his wife into his own household, but not vice versa.  The prohibition of Muslim women marrying non-Muslim men and the allowance of Muslim men marrying non-Muslim women  results in means the population of Muslims will be in a position always to grow, while that of non-Muslims declines. Considering that woman is at the center of pro-creation, it will have double effect in the same period: increases no. of Muslims, at the same time with decreasing no. of Non-Muslims.

Every law and belief in Islam is rigged to expand the dominion of Islam. Double standards, like the above one, become norms, albeit in the name of piety, while larger moral issues, reciprocity, are simply brushed aside.

It is worth recalling that Islam prescribes death penalty to those Muslims who leave Islam and bans other religions from proselytizing but, it asks its followers to convert Non-Muslims through any means, from proselytizing to forcing.

Sharia law stipulates that those Non-Muslim men who marry Muslim women shall be put to death. And here,  Muslims killing that guy is in pure line with beliefs of Muslims and Islamic law. And it is meant to serve as a warning to Non-Muslims and to Muslim women.

Since, Muslims are in minority in India, the Muslim girl herself could have been a victim for marrying Non-Muslim guy, as Islam ( Koran) supports honor killings; I presented such cases where in Muslim girls were killed for marrying Non-Muslims.

A 24-year old man was hacked to death allegedly by the brother of a Muslim girl and his associates for marrying her, triggering tension in Idalakudi area of the district, police said.

Ramesh, a goods carrier operator based here, had married the girl belonging to Idalakudi some months ago though her family had opposed it, they said.

On June 14, two persons had stopped Ramesh’s vehicle and taken him to Idalakudi where a seven-member gang including the brother of his wife attacked him with iron rods, police said, adding he succumbed to injuries at a hospital yesterday.

As the news of his death spread, a group indulged in stone pelting in some localities in the area while some people blocked traffic to protest the violence, they said. Police rushed to the spot and dispersed both the groups.
