The Rise and Fall of Altaf Hussain
Altaf Hussain

He was called a Pir Sahib for many years, Quaid-e-Tehrik (leader of the movement), Rahber (guide), and always Altaf Bhai. A strike call in Karachi would paralyse the city as Altaf Bhai would address his muhajir disciples over the phone or video links, carried live by every TV channel that wanted to be spared the wrath of the party militants for not showing Bhai’s address. If ever there was a party which once resembled those called ‘fascist’, it was the MQM. No one dared show any disrespect to the party or its leader...

 

Obama Nominates First Muslim to Be a Federal Judge
Abid Riaz Qureshi

“A judiciary that reflects the rich diversity of our nation helps ensure the fair and just administration of the law, and it is vital for American Muslims to be included,” she said in a statement....

 

J&K: Communication Strategy is Key but First, Stabilise the Streets
Lt Gen (Retd) Syed Ata Hasnain

Only when the streets are quiet will a counter strategy of communicating with the masses become effective. Foremost must be the understanding that the Separatist leadership is now beyond repair and any chances the government had of employing it for a future dispensation are now passé.....

 

Haj, Humanity and Saudi Arabia
Rafia Zakaria

Haj is a religious imperative, seen as a route to spiritual salvation. Regardless of where they come from, pilgrims arrive with the hope of seeing a holy place they have turned towards five times a day for their entire lives. The fact that such holy places are located on Saudi territory means that admission and entry are dependent on the Saudis....

An Open Letter to the People of Brazil
Robert J. Burrowes, New Age Islam

In the struggle to make this world the place of peace, justice and environmental sustainability that it could be, the people of Brazil have been playing an inspirational role. You do not need to let this coup be more than a temporary setback. You also have solidarity allies around the world and many of us are willing to assist you, if you decide to let us play a role too...

 

Guerrilla Art Exhibit Unmasks the Face of Terrorism
Peter Baker

Eight months after the attack, the killer’s face hovered over Dizengoff Street again, full of menace and malevolence. On a giant outdoor screen, the killer, Nashat Melhem, talked about death and cursed the Jews as evening strollers passed by, a chilling voice from beyond the grave that was taped on his mobile phone before he opened fire on the crowds gathered here on New Year’s Day....

 

U.N. Human Rights Chief Blasts ‘Demagogues’ of Western Nations
Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein

Discarding diplomatic niceties, the United Nations’ top human rights official on Monday denounced Western politicians who he said used racist language and peddled fear in a way similar to the jihadist propaganda of Islamist extremists....

The Strategy behind the ‘B’ Word
Lt Gen Syed Ata Hasnain

Remember Pakistan’s chaotic internal security situation and obsession with seeking its space in Afghanistan leaves it little time for Kashmir. Cornering it by imposing caution and giving enough signals about the future intent being in the same domain as that of Pakistan in Kashmir, could force a rethink. However, a one off smart move which has had strategic overtones needs sustenance for continuing effectiveness. ..

 

A Redefining Moment for Muttahida Qaumi Movement
Khaled Ahmed

Its ailing leader Altaf Hussain, banned from Pakistani TV channels through a court order, addressed a hunger-strike audience via telephone and lambasted the state of Pakistan: “Pakistan is a cancer for the entire world. Pakistan is a headache for the entire world. Pakistan is the epicentre of terrorism for the entire world. Who says long live Pakistan… it’s down with Pakistan. Pakistan Murdabad! (Death to Pakistan)”....

Let’s Win Their Trust Back
Lt Gen Syed Ata Hasnain (retd)

These were the events at which much anger was expressed in passionate speeches in chaste Urdu, but at the end of it, there were some take away for all. The environment improved and the media stopped being as negative as it had been...

 

Janamashtami – Lord Krishna’s Birth Celebrations
Dr. Mike Ghouse

The true way to celebrate Lord Krishna’s birth celebrations (or appearance as the Hare Krishna folks call it) is to read at least a chapter from Bhagvad Gita. I am inspired by it, and I am a Muslim today because of reading a verse from Bhagvad Gita that called on each one of us – finding the truth is one’s own responsibility....

Balochistan – Pak’s Untold Story
Col. R. Hariharan

Hafiz Saeed’s “warning” to India to either accept the separatist Hurriyat leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani’s 4-point formula on Kashmir and “withdraw security forces from the Valley, or face the decision in battlefield” has an ominous ring. It raises the uncomfortable question is Pakistan preparing for Operation Badr-2...

 

We Hope Pakistan Will Change the Narrative
Suhasini Haidar

So we hope that the narrative that has been there for decades is not going to be acceptable for the region, for Afghanistan and the international community — and Pakistan will change it, for the sake of themselves, the world community, and Afghanistan....

 

Did Munich Killer Lure Children To Their Deaths On Facebook? Police Probe Fake Ad for Free Food at Massacre Mcdonald's Where Iranian, 18, Killed First Of His Nine Victims before Turning Gun on Himself

Munich was in lockdown for a major police operation around the city's Olympic Park, after the 18-year-old Iranian opened fire at the fast food restaurant, before targeting shoppers in a busy mall in the district of Moosach. The killer's body has been found half a mile from the scene after he reportedly turned the gun on himself. Police now believe he may have acted alone, after they initially went in search of three gunmen yesterday....

There Is an Urgent Need for India to Reclaim “National Interest” From Its National Media
Shah Faesal

My fears were proven right: Soon, I was told, there was a huge mob outside our colony, rallying against the remarks of the Zee News anchor asking the dead militants to be burnt along with garbage instead of being buried in India’s land; the studio and the street were competing with each other.....

An Old New Militancy
Syed Ata Hasnain

An Old New Militancy
Syed Ata Hasnain

A terrorist’s days are always numbered and so were Burhan Wani’s. Leading the new militancy in South Kashmir, the 22-year-old angry young man from the passionately anti-India town of Tral brought an aura of romance to terror in South Kashmir....

 

.... France’s two leading scholars of radical Islam — former friends — have turned bitter rivals over their differing views. “Madman,” “thug,” “illiterate,” “paranoid,” “ass,” “not a thinker” — these are just some of the choicer insults the two men have hurled at each other...

 

Owaisi Surprised Many with His Remarks, Zakir Naik Hasn't
Mohd Asim

Especially in India, where Muslims have best seen the benefits of democracy, secularism, pluralism, the ideas propagated by the likes of Zakir Naik are not only obscurantist but also dangerous. The ideas that only Islam is the true faith and all other ways to God are wrong have to be eradicated. What must be emphasised and enforced is the Quranic injunction of "Lakum Deenakum Wale Yadeen" (To you your religion, to me mines). ..

The reason that Iraq is in a mess today is largely because of the ill-advised invasion and post-invasion handling of the country. In the process of removing Hussein, whose power had been reduced to being an irritant rather than a threat to anyone and who had prevented Al Qaeda...

Why The British Said No To Europe
John Pilger

The majority vote by Britons to leave the European Union was an act of raw democracy. Millions of ordinary people refused to be bullied, intimidated and dismissed with open contempt by their presumed betters in the major parties, the leaders of the business and banking oligarchy and the media.

 

"God does not want us sinking in a sea of shame," the Pastor says. "If a man commits adultery with another man’s wife, with the wife of his neighbour; both the adulterer and the adulteress are to be put to death. Now that sounds drastic doesn't it and it is - God will judge sexual sin - the Israelites didn’t get away with it back then, and we will not get away with it either."...

 

Bahrain’s Crackdown: Brutal King, Cowardly Allies

The latest is Ayatollah Sheikh Isa Qassim, regarded as the spiritual leader of the country’s Shia majority. On June 20th the Sunni-led government said he had been promoting extremism and sectarianism. He was also an outspoken critic of an increasingly ruthless regime....

 

“If you know anything about psychology, you know that people that have a really, really strong resentment or above-average hate toward something, it’s because deep inside that’s what they truly are,” she said in an interview at her home in Boulder, Colo. “In Islam, it’s true that there is very low tolerance for homosexuality. He may not have been able to be himself.”....
