Mumbai Terrorist Attacks Reprehensible Crimes Against Humanity: Dr. Fai

 

Washington, D.C. November 27, 2008. The Kashmiri American Council (KAC) expressed its utter disgust at the terrorist attacks perpetrated in Mumbai, India.  Condemning the bestiality in the strongest terms, the KAC pledged to contribute, in whatever form possible, to the rehabilitation effort of the affected families.  Dismayed at the photos displaying the carnage, fleeing victims and burning buildings, Executive Director of KAC, Dr. Ghulam Nabi Fai, prayed that the authorities would pursue all reasonable efforts to investigate, apprehend, and punish those who are guilty of committing these reprehensible crimes against humanity.

 

The KAC Board, in an extraordinary meeting, pledged to oppose those who would resort to violence in order to pursue whatever ends they claimed.  Reports indicating that terrorists specifically targeted Western tourists further aggravate enlightened sensibilities.  Targeted victimization of innocents has no justification and encourages retribution from any and all quarters.  To that end, the KAC hopes that all India's citizenry allows for a cooling period and hopes that communal harmony prevails during this troubling time in India’s history.

TERROR ATTACK IN MUMBAI : BARBARIC, DASTARDLY AND INHUMAN SHAMEFUL ACT.

I join millions in condemning the recent terrorists attack in Mumbai by the terrorists who came to Mumbai through sea route, as one of worst kind we have witnessed recently. Its a cowardly act of a few individuals in the name of the religion. It is barabaric, inhuman and highly reprehensible act as no man of honour would ever condone it. We, the Muslims, of India expressing our solidarity with the Prime Minister and the people of India and  join in asking the Govt to deal with them sternly. These are crimnals and gangsters, using some ruse to carry on their dastardly act against humanity. Allah is not only for Muslims but for all mankind. Prophet Mohammed PBUH had directed its followers in one of his last speeches from Jable Rahmat in Arfat not to spill the blood of the innocent. He did not say of the Muslims but of the people of any faith. Anybody carrying out any agenda in the name of the religion is not a Muslim per se and he must be given summary justice on the spot. No negotiation with them and no mercy be shown. They must be killed on the spot without a trial.This is the only language these perpetrators of crime against humanity understand. 

All indications point to LET across the borders, but so far no proven evidence. Despite this, one can easily say, whoever has carried out under whosoever direction, is not a friend of India. The elections are round the corner and a situation is being created to put the present Govt in dock. There is already an allegation from the opposition that this govt is soft on terror. But the tragedy struck so soon no body expected. There was a lull in the activity after the serial blasts and arrests of Muslim youth as well as Hindu militants. The investigation is going on in full swing when the tragedy struck to Mumbai. As the report last came in the terrorists are still holed up in Trident and Nariman House. NSG is all set to flush them out soon.

The most tragic moment came when the ATS Chief Hemante Karkare and other police personnel were killed in the shoot out. The same Hemant Karkare received the death threat over phone a day before and he rubbished it while talking to 24x7 News Channel. He was the finest officer, the Bombay Police can boast of . He was carrying out the investigation into Malegaon and Modsa blasts with such precision that he did not care for any intereference from the political parties. He was carrying out his duties impartially, otherwise, such a powerful group like Sadhvi, Lt.Col. Purohit, Dayanad Pandy would not have been arrested so soon. He was about to unravel the role of more militants, when the tragedy struck to derail the on going investigations. But some one from the Police force would carry on the good work and finish it off early. All my sympathy go to the family members of Hemant Karkare and others killed in the shoot out at Taj Hotel and elsewhere. The whole nation mourn his death and that of others.

This is a challenging situation both for the govt and people of this country. It is time to remain calm and maintain peace at any cost. It is time to strengthen the hands of the govt and it is not time to take political mileage out of it. The ruling party as well as opposition should join together to make a joint and well coordinated effort to fight this menace. It is time to strengthen the present laws to deal with the terrorists sternly. It is time to mobilise all our resources at command to strengthen the intelligence apparatus and administrative machinery to gear up to put in place the crisis management structure.

The question arises after the attack and the impunity with which these terrorists carried out this well coordinated attack with such precision, are we prepared to face such an eventuality? The way the rescue operation was carried out, the injured and dead ferried to the hospitals and inadequacy of the arrangements all go to prove that much to be desired. It is an experience that should help the govt to prepare the hospitals, para medics and other facilities to take care of the injured in such an eventuality. Crisis management structure has to be put in place to meet such eventuality. All these and more such efforts and strengthening of the intelligence apparatus would help the police to tackle such a situation.

The Mumbai gave a look of a battle zone virtually a war like situation never heard or seen before. The whole world reacted with such disbelief and expressed full sympathy to the people of India. Pakistan denied a hand but equally condemned the attack as barbaric and highly reprehensible act of cowardice. Pakistan too is suffering from such attacks and expressed its solidarity with the people of India. Words not enough, Pakistan should show in deeds. It is no secret that the Pak-Afghan border is the epi-centre of terrorists and from there they carry out their attacks not only inside Afghanistan and Pakistan, but elsewhere too. Pakistan is a failed state as it could not stop the activities of the terrorists. It is also feeling the heat of their activities inside Pakistan. Recently, similar attack at Hotel Merriot in Pakistan left several dead go to show that the terrorists are acting with impunity and at will as well. It is time for India and Pakistan to join together to flush out the remanants of terrorists camps from Pakistan. It is no time to claim innocence as it is evident that the terrorists are certainly coming from there only.

US President elect Barack Obama has already hinted his intention to invade Pakistan and this incident would strengthen his suspicion that the terrorists are still at large there and operating still with such impunity that Pakistan govt failed is all pervasive. It would be no wonder, if US launches its attack into Pakistan even before Obama takes formal charge of the Presidency in January. Its a warning to Pakistan to act fast before it is too late. If this happens Pakistan would not get any sympathy from anywhere. Be sure of it.

Maulana Mahmood Madani appeals for peace

New Delhi: In a statement released here today, Maulana Mahmood Madani, leader of Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind expressed his pain at the killing of innocents in the terrorist operation in Mumbai. He condemned the attack in strongest word possible and said nothing can justify this ugly incident.
Maulana Madani said that if what the government and media is saying is correct and indeed this terrorism was done in the name of Islam then he wants to emphasize that this terrorism is not only against the country and humanity but also a war against Islam. He pointed out that this is not jihad (struggle) but fasad (mischief).
Madani said that Islam puts heavy punishment for these kinds of activities. There is no justification for these kinds of attacks in Islam and the religion that is a message of peace gets tarnished by these activities that are done in its name.
India is going through a delicate phase and lot of Indians have lost lives in various terrorist activities, but we have to control our emotions in this difficult time so that people with evil intentions are not able to succeed in their designs.
We have to rise above our religious and caste affiliations and face these fascist forces that want to harm India. I appeal all political parties to put their differences behind and work together so that this problem of terrorism is finished once and for all.

American Muslim organization condemns Mumbai attacks
New Delhi: A prominent
national Islamic civil rights and advocacy group today condemned attacks on a number of sites in the Indian financial capital of Mumbai that left at least 100 people dead and many more injured.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) also called for the immediate and unconditional release of all hostages taken during the attacks. Witnesses say the attackers sought out American and British citizens.
In a statement, CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad said:
“We condemn these cowardly attacks and demand that all hostages taken by the attackers be released immediately and unconditionally. We offer sincere condolences to the loved ones of those killed or injured in these senseless and inexcusable acts of violence against innocent civilians. American Muslims stand with our fellow citizens of all faiths in repudiating acts of terror wherever they take place and whomever they target.”
The Washington-based group also asked the Indian government to protect all its citizens from the type of retaliatory attacks that have taken place following similar incidents in the recent past.
CAIR, America's largest Islamic civil liberties group, has 35 offices and chapters nationwide and in Canada. Its mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.

Who all men donot understand Ahle bait and his sacrifices for Islam, who are totally misguided and corrupt in Islamic qreed, you are misguided by some unislamic historians.

So dont say You are sunni, because you, Zakir naik, Ibn timmiya (lanati) and his follower are wahabi,

 

“Ibn timiya is a first man who had said that "who man thinks to go to Mazar only he is mushrik specialy Mazare muqaddaus of Prophet Muhammad sallalllahu wasssaalam."

 

After this fatwa, all ullema of that time use takfir for timiya lanati. And after that abdul wahab najdi had say like that. Waht you think only you know history. You are corrupt for your comment own yazid sorry to all for my critics.

And miss sufiya suhail thanks for your positive reply for my comment

Condemning "Islamist" terrorist attack on Mumbai in harshest terms

The world is united in condemning the dastardly terrorist attack on the integrity and sovereignty of India by elements that appear to be from all accounts so far related to Al-Qaeda or some other Pakistan-based terrorist organisation. Accounts that are seldom fully confirmed in such situations suggest that the perpetrators might be so-called Islamic militants of some international terrorist organisation or a combination of international, Pakistani and local elements that claim to belong to some little-known organisation they call Deccan Mujahdeen. It seems like the same old story of justifying violence against innocent civilians in the name of Islamic Jihad. That the compassionate religion of total submission to God that is Islam does not justify such dastardly behaviour in any situation is now well-known. Indian Muslim clerics too have come out in their thousands to point this out repeatedly. That some elements from within us, or from neighbouring Muslim countries or international “Islamist” terrorist organisations continue to call their cowardly behaviour Jihad needs to be condemned by all Muslims individually and collectively. NewAgeIslam.com appeals to its readers to join us in condemning this in these columns and express their views on the issue.

For Non-Muslim who dont accept Islam as a true rligion:

 

Only these verses are enough for the above as a reply:

O Messenger! Make known that which hath been revealed unto thee from thy Lord, for if thou do it not, thou wilt not have conveyed His message. Allah will protect thee from mankind. Lo! Allah guideth not the disbelieving folk. [AL-MAEDA (THE TABLE, THE TABLE SPREAD) Chapter 5 - Verse 67]

Remind them, for thou art but a remembrancer, Thou art not at all a warder over them. [AL-GHASHIYA (THE OVERWHELMING, THE PALL) Chapter 88 - Verse 21 and 22]

As for him who thinketh himself independent, Unto him thou payest regard.  Yet it is not thy concern if he grow not (in grace). [ABASA (HE FROWNED) Chapter 80 - Verses 5, 6 and 7]

So let whosoever will pay heed to it, [[ABASA (HE FROWNED) Chapter 80 - Verse 12]

There is no compulsion in religion. The right direction is henceforth distinct from error. And he who rejecteth false deities and believeth in Allah hath grasped a firm handhold which will never break. Allah is Hearer, Knower. {Verse 256 Chapter 2 AL-BAQARA (THE COW).

Had Allah willed, they had not been idolatrous. We have not set thee as a keeper over them, nor art thou responsible for them. Revile not those unto whom they they pray beside Allah lest they wrongfully revile Allah through ignorance. Thus unto every nation have We made their deed seem fair. Then unto their Lord is their return, and He will tell them what they used to do (Cattle – VI (Soora Al Anam) Verse 107, 108).

And argue not with the People of the Scripture unless it be in (a way) that is better, save with such of them as do wrong, and say: We believe in that which hath been revealed unto us and revealed unto you; our God and your God is One, and unto Him we surrender {The Spider – XXIX (Soora Al-Ankaboot) Verse 46}.

Call unto the way of thy Lord with wisdom and fair exhortation, and reason with them in the better way. Lo! thy Lord is Best Aware of him who strayeth from His way, and He is Best Aware of those who go aright. [Verse 125 Chapter 16 AN-NAHL (THE BEE)].

And if thy Lord willed, all who are in the earth would have believed together. Wouldnt thou (MOHAMMAD) compel men until they are believers? {Jonah – X (Soora Yunus) Verse 99}.

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

Say! O disbelievers! I worship not that which ye worship; Nor worship ye that I worship. And I shall not worship that which ye worship. Nor will ye worship that which I worship. Unto you your religion, and unto me my religion {The Disbelievers – CIX (Soora Al-Kafiroon) 6 Verses}. 

After this fatwa, all ullema of that time use takfir for timiya lanati. And after that abdul wahab najdi had say like that. [Syeda Farheen Fatima

This may satisfy yoy and other who are issuing fatwa against each of the of being apostate:

Munir Report on Fatwas of Kufr

 

One of the most famous public documents in the history of Pakistan is known commonly as the Munir Report, its official title being: Report of the Court of Inquiry constituted under Punjab Act II of 1954 to enquire into the Punjab Disturbances of 1953. The disturbances referred to were instigated by a number of religious leaders (ulama) in pursuance of their demand that the government officially classify Ahmadis to be a non-Muslim minority community, and take certain other actions against members of this movement.

The disturbances were eventually quelled by the authorities, and a public court of inquiry appointed with Justice Muhammad Munir as president and Justice Kayani as member to investigate the causes of the trouble. The inquiry went into the underlying issues behind the events, carrying out an incisive analysis of the ulama's concept of an Islamic state. Its 387-page Report, which soon became a historic document, was presented in April 1954.

Referring to the ulama's call for Pakistan to be run as an official `Islamic' state, and to their demands against Ahmadis, the Report says:

``The question, therefore, whether a person is or is not a Muslim will be of fundamental importance, and it was for this reason that we asked most of the leading ulama to give their definition of a Muslim, the point being that if the ulama of the various sects believed the Ahmadis to be kafirs, they must have been quite clear in their minds not only about the grounds of such belief but also about the definition of a Muslim because the claim that a certain person or community is not within the pale of Islam implies on the part of the claimant an exact conception of what a Muslim is. The result of this part of the inquiry, however, has been anything but satisfactory, and if considerable confusion exists in the minds of our ulama on such a simple matter, one can easily imagine what the differences on more complicated matters will be. Below we reproduce the definition of a Muslim given by each alim in his own words.''

(p. 215)

There then follow in the Report the answers given by various ulama to the question, What is the definition of a Muslim. At the end of the answers, the Report draws the following conclusion:

``Keeping in view the several definitions given by the ulama, need we make any comment except that no two learned divines are agreed on this fundamental. If we attempt our own definition as each learned divine has done and that definition differs from that given by all others, we unanimously go out of the fold of Islam. And if we adopt the definition given by any one of the ulama, we remain Muslims according to the view of that alim but kafirs according to the definition of every one else.''

(p. 218)

After this, under the heading Apostasy, the Report refers to the belief held by the ulama that, in an Islamic state, a Muslim who becomes a kafir is subject to the death penalty. The Report says:

``According to this doctrine, Chaudhri Zafrullah Khan, if he has not inherited his present religious beliefs but has voluntarily elected to be an Ahmadi, must be put to death. And the same fate should befall Deobandis and Wahabis, including Maulana Muhammad Shafi Deobandi, Member, Board of Talimat-i-Islami attached to the Constituent Assembly of Pakistan, and Maulana Daud Ghaznavi, if Maulana Abul Hasanat Sayyad Muhammad Ahmad Qadri or Mirza Raza Ahmad Khan Barelvi, or any one of the numerous ulama who are shown perched on every leaf of a beautiful tree in the fatwa, Ex. D.E. 14, were the head of such Islamic State. And if Maulana Muhammad Shafi Deobandi were the head of the State, he would exclude those who have pronounced Deobandis as kafirs from the pale of Islam and inflict on them the death penalty if they come within the definition of murtadd, namely, if they have changed and not inherited their religious views.

``The genuineness of the fatwa, Ex. D.E. 13, by the Deobandis which says that Asna Ashari Shias are kafirs and murtadds, was questioned in the course of enquiry, but Maulana Muhammad Shafi made an inquiry on the subject from Deoband, and received from the records of that institution the copy of a fatwa signed by all the teachers of the Darul Uloom, including Maulana Muhammad Shafi himself which is to the effect that those who do not believe in the sahabiyyat of Hazrat Siddiq Akbar and who are qazif of Hazrat Aisha Siddiqa and have been guilty of tehrif of Quran are kafirs. This opinion is also supported by Mr Ibrahim Ali Chishti who has studied and knows his subject. He thinks the Shias are kafirs because they believe that Hazrat Ali shared the prophethood with our Holy Prophet. He refused to answer the question whether a person who being a Sunni changes his view and agrees with the Shia view would be guilty of irtidad so as to deserve the death penalty. According to the Shias all Sunnis are kafirs, and Ahl-i-Quran, namely, persons who consider hadith to be unreliable and therefore not binding, are unanimously kafirs, and so are all independent thinkers. The net result of all this is that neither Shias nor Sunnis nor Deobandis nor Ahl-i-Hadith nor Barelvis are Muslims and any change from one view to the other must be accompanied in an Islamic State with the penalty of death if the Government of the State is in the hands of the party which considers the other party to be kafirs. And it does not require much imagination to judge of the consequences of this doctrine when it is remembered that no two ulama have agreed before us as to the definition of a Muslim. If the constituents of each of the definitions given by the ulama are given effect to, and subjected to the rule of `combination and permutation' and the form of charge in the Inquisition's sentence on Galileo is adopted mutatis mutandis as a model, the grounds on which a person may be indicted for apostasy will be too numerous to count.''

(p. 219)

Hence this extensive inquiry found that if the fatwas of the ulama are relied upon to determine whether a sect is Muslim or kafir, then no sect at all will be left which could be called Muslim.

"A reply to question one

"The followers of Muhammad bin Najdi are called Wahabis. Shah Ismail Dehlavi under "Al Iman" in which there lots of kufr translated his book "Tauhid" in India. Whoever follows the Wahabis is a kaffir.

"Deobadiyaat is a form of Wahabiyath their ideology is to disrespect the Saints, every Deobandi is a Wahabi, and not every Wahabi is a Deobandi. Deobandi's become Hanafi and those that are not Deobandis call themselves Ahl-e-Hadith. They possess a great deal of kufr beliefs. The Wahabis and Ahl e Hadith tend to adhere to the work "Taqwiyat ul Iman" and call it the truth. The Deoband apostates acknowledging their kufr beliefs still call them Muslims, under Islamic Law they are therefore both kaffir and should be punished accordingly" ["Tajhahib Ahl ul Sunnah" by Naasir Sunniyath Abu Tahir Muhammad Thabib Siddiqui Dhana Purri, published Markazi Anjuman Huzbul Aynaf Lahore, Bareylvi Electorate Press 1361 Hijri]

"Fatwa of three hundred Ulama against Deobandis

``The Deobandis, because of their contempt and insult, in their acts of worship, towards all saints, prophets, and even the Holy Prophet Muhammad and the very Person of God Himself, are definitely murtadd and kafir. Their apostasy and heresy is of the worst kind, so that anyone who doubts their apostasy and heresy even slightly is himself a murtadd and kafir. Muslims should be very cautious of them, and stay away from them. Let alone praying behind them, one should not let them pray behind one, or allow them into mosques, or eat the animal slaughtered by them, or join them on happy or sad occasions, or let them come near one, or visit them in illness, or attend their funerals, or give them space in Muslim grave-yards. To sum up, one must stay away from them completely.''

(See the Unanimous Fatwa of Three Hundred Ulama, published by Muhammad Ibrahim of Bhagalpur)

Deobandis should be declared non-Muslim minority

In March 1953, a poster was put up on walls in Karachi titled:

``Demands: Deoband sect should be declared a separate minority''.

Among other things it said:

``Just as Sikhs originated from Hinduism, but are not Hindus, and Protestants came from Roman Catholicism, but are not Catholics, similarly, the Deobandi sect originated in the Sunni community, but are not Sunnis. The representatives of this minority sect are Mufti Muhammad Shafi, Sayyid Sulaiman Nadawi, Ihtasham-ul-Haqq, and Abul Ala Maudoodi, etc.''

After this it was demanded that this sect be declared a non-Muslim minority. It was signed by 28 persons

(see Tulu`-i-Islam, May 1953, p. 64).

Fatwa of Deobandis against Barelvis

Maulavi Sayyid Muhammad Murtaza of Deoband has, in his book, tried to show that Ahmad Raza Khan, the Barelvi leader, was a kafir, a great kafir, Anti- Christ of this century, murtadd, and excluded from Islam.

(See the booklet Radd at-Takfir ala-l-fahash at-Tanzir.)

The opposite side

Ahmad Raza Khan (Barelvi) has noted the beliefs of Muhammad Qasim Nanotavi (founder of the school at Deoband) and Rashid Ahmad Gangohi (of Deoband), and then added:

``They are all murtadd [apostate] according to the unanimous view (ijma) of Muslims.''

This fatwa bears the signatures and seals of Ulama of Makka and Madina, and other Muftis and Islamic judges. Three reasons have been given for calling them kafir :

1.They deny the finality of prophethood;

2.They insult the Holy Prophet;

3.They believe that God can tell a lie.

Hence it is written about them:

``He who doubts that they are kafirs, is himself a kafir.''

(Hisam al-Haramain, pp. 100 and 113)"

Calamity of Takfir [Rulings of Heresy - Apostate]

"QUOTE"

Ghulam Ahmad Pervez of Lahore is a well-known Pakistani Islamic thinker and writer, representing the Ahl-i Quran tendency, and founder of the Idara Tulu‘-i-Islam (Institute of the Dawn of Islam). In the monthly journal of this institute, entitled Tulu‘-i-Islam, dated August 1969, there is an extensive article headed Fatwas of Kufr (Rulings of Heresy) quoting fatwas of various Sunni groups condemning one another as kafir. A long extract from this article is given below in translation.

The Sunnis are divided into two main sects: Non-conformists (ghair muqallid), commonly known as Ahl-i Hadith, and conformists (muqallid), commonly known as Hanafis. The conformists are divided into two groups: Deobandi and Barelvi. Also among the conformists are the various Sufi orders. Now let us see how these sects are declaring each other as kafir.

Fatwas of conformists against non-conformists
  • “The non-conformist (ghair muqallid) sect, whose distinctive outward manner [of prayer] in this country is saying Amen aloud, raising the hands [during the prayer], folding the arms on the chest, and reciting the Al-Hamd behind the Imam, are excluded from the Sunnis, and are like other misguided sects, because many of their beliefs and practices are opposed to those of the Sunnis. It is not permissible to pray behind them. To mix with them socially and sit with them, and to let them enter mosques at their pleasure, is prohibited in Islamic Shari‘ah.”

    (This bears the seals of nearly seventy Ulama. Reference the book: Arguments with regard to the expulsion of Wahabis from mosques, p. 8.)

  • “He who calls conformism (taqlid) as prohibited, and conformists as polytheists, is a kafir according to Islamic Shari‘ah, and in fact a murtadd [apostate].”

    (Book: Discipline of mosques with regard to the expulsion of mischief-makers from mosques)

  • “It is obligatory upon the Ulama and Muftis that, by merely hearing of such a thing, they should not hesitate to issue fatwas of heresy and apostasy. Otherwise, they themselves would be included among the apostates.” (ibid.)

  • Ahmad Raza Khan, the Barelvi leader, has quoted the beliefs of all sections of the non-conformists, and given the fatwa:

    “All these groups are murtadd and kafir. He who doubts their being kafirs, is himself a kafir.”

    (Book Hisam al Haramain)

  • Fatwas of non-conformists against conformists
  • “Question: What say the Ulama and the Muftis regarding the conformist (muqallid) group, who follow only one Imam [i.e. Hanafis]. Are they Sunnis or not? Is it valid to pray behind them or not? Is it permissible to allow them into mosques, and to mix with them socially?

    “Answer: Undoubtedly, prayers are not permissible behind conformists because their beliefs and practices are opposed to those of the Sunnis. In fact, some of their beliefs and practices lead to polytheism, and others spoil prayers. It is not correct in Islamic Shari‘ah to allow such conformists into mosques.”

    This bears the seals of nineteen priests. (Reference the book: Collection of Fatwas, pp. 54 – 55)

  • The late Nawab Siddiq Hasan Khan wrote:

    “The word polytheist can be applied to conformists, and polytheism can be applied to conformism. Most people today are conformists. The Quranic verse, ‘Most people believe not, they are but polytheists’, applies quite well to them.”

    (Iqtarab as-Sa‘a, p. 16)

  • Not only Hanafis, but all of them:

    “The followers of all the four Imams and the followers of the four Sufi orders, viz. Hanafi, Shafi‘i, Maliki, Hanbali, Chishtiyya, Qadiriyya, Naqshbandiyya and Mujaddidiyya are all kafirs.”

    (Jami al-Shuhood, p. 2)

    Fatwa of three hundred Ulama against Deobandis

    “The Deobandis, because of their contempt and insult, in their acts of worship, towards all saints, prophets, and even the Holy Prophet Muhammad and the very Person of God Himself, are definitely murtadd and kafir. Their apostasy and heresy is of the worst kind, so that anyone who doubts their apostasy and heresy even slightly is himself a murtadd and kafir. Muslims should be very cautious of them, and stay away from them. Let alone praying behind them, one should not let them pray behind one, or allow them into mosques, or eat the animal slaughtered by them, or join them on happy or sad occasions, or let them come near one, or visit them in illness, or attend their funerals, or give them space in Muslim grave-yards. To sum up, one must stay away from them completely.”

    (See the Unanimous Fatwa of Three Hundred Ulama, published by Muhammad Ibrahim of Bhagalpur)

    Deobandis should be declared non-Muslim minority

    In March 1953, a poster was put up on walls in Karachi headed: “Demands: Deoband sect should be declared a separate minority”. Among other things it said:

    “Just as Sikhs originated from Hinduism, but are not Hindus, and Protestants came from Roman Catholicism, but are not Catholics, similarly, the Deobandi sect originated in the Sunni community, but are not Sunnis.

    After this it was demanded that this sect be declared a non-Muslim minority. It was signed by 28 persons (see Tulu‘-i-Islam, May 1953, p. 64).

    Fatwa of Deobandis against Barelvis

    Maulavi Sayyid Muhammad Murtaza of Deoband has, in his book, tried to show that Ahmad Raza Khan, the Barelvi leader, was a kafir, a great kafir, Anti- Christ of this century, murtadd, and excluded from Islam. (See the booklet Radd at-Takfir ala-l-fahash at-Tanzir.)

  • Hence it is written about them:

    “He who doubts that they are kafirs, is himself a kafir.”

    (Hisam al-Haramain, pp. 100 and 113)

    You will have seen that all the sects, whether Hanafis, Ahl-i Hadith, Deobandi, or Barelvi, and all the Sufi orders such as Chishtiyya, Qadiriyya, etc., have had fatwas of heresy and apostasy pronounced against them. And not only sects, but the prominent men of these sects have had fatwas directed against them individually.

    Fatwas against individual leaders

    Maulana Nazir Husain of Delhi (Ahl-i Hadith) was called disputant, doubter, follower of base passions, jealous, dishonest and alterer (of the Quran).

    Maulavi Muhammad Husain Batalavi, along with the above Maulana, was called devil, atheist, stupid, senseless, faithless, etc. This fatwa bears the seals of 82 Ulama of Arabia and elsewhere. (Book Nazar al-Haq)

    Maulana Sana-Ullah of Amritsar (Ahl-i Hadith) had fatwas directed against him which were obtained in Makka. It is written about his commentary of the Quran:

    “It is the writing of a misguided person, one who has invented new doctrines. In his commentary he has collected beliefs such as re-incarnation and the doctrines of the Mu‘tazila [an early extreme Muslim sect]. It is neither permissible to obtain knowledge from Maulana Sana-ullah, nor to follow him. His evidence cannot be accepted, nor can he lead prayers. There is no doubt regarding his heresy and apostasy. ... His commentary deserves to be cut to pieces. In fact, it is forbidden to see it except for the purpose of refuting it.”

    (Faisila Makka, pp. 15 – 20)

    Maulana Husain Ahmad Madani (Deobandi):

    Referring to an article of his, the weekly Tarjuman Islam of Lahore carried the following extract in its issue for 10 November 1961:

    “Maulana Husain Ahmad Madani, Deobandi, was a first-rate scholar and servant of Quran and Hadith. He needs no introduction. But one was very shocked by a letter of his which contained the grotesque idea of the denial of Hadith. This concept goes beyond the Mu‘tazila, and breaks the records of the ideologies of Chakralvi and Pervez.”

    All those whose record is said to be broken by Husain Ahmad Madani, have had fatwas of kufr directed against them. This makes it clear that Maulana Madani too is considered a kafir.

    Maulana Maudoodi:

    Abul Ala Maudoodi and his party have been the subject of fatwas by Ulama of nearly every sect.

  • Mufti Muhzar-ullah, of Jami Fatehpuri in Delhi, wrote in his fatwa:

    “On the very face of it, these things [beliefs of Maudoodi’s party] exclude a Muslim from the Sunnis, and lead to divisions among the believers, and is the basis of making a new sect. But looking closely, these things take one to heresy. In this case, they do not make a new sect, but result in one’s entry into the group of apostates.”

  • Maulana Hafiz-ullah of Aligarh has written:

    “Whatever was the position of the Zarar mosque, similar is the position of this [i.e. Maudoodi’s] party.”

    [Note: The Zarar mosque was a mosque built by some hypocrite Muslims in Madina during the Holy Prophet’s time for the purpose of conspiring against Islam].

    The word kufr is used about the Zarar mosque in the Holy Quran. Hence the same word applies to these people.

  • Maulana Izaz Ali, Deobandi, wrote in his fatwa:

    “I consider this [i.e. Maudoodi’s] party to be even more harmful for the faith of the Muslims than are the Ahmadis.”

  • Mufti Sayyid Mahdi Hasan, President-Mufti of the theological school at Deoband, writes in his fatwa:

    “If an Imam of a mosque agrees with the views of Maudoodi, it is a hateful matter to pray behind him.”

  • Maulana Husain Ahmad Madani (Deobandi) wrote in a letter to Maudoodi:

    “Your ‘Islamic’ movement is against the righteous tradition in Islam. It is like the [extremist] sects of old such as Mu‘tazila, Khwarij and Rafiz. It resembles modern sects such as Qadiani, Chakralvi [deniers of Hadith], Naturi [rationalist], and Baha’i [i.e. the Baha’i religion]. It seeks to make a new Islam. It is based on principles, beliefs and practices which are against the Sunnis and Islam.”

  • The Committee of Ulama of Maulana Ahmad Ali wrote in a poster against Maudoodi:

    “His reasoning is devilry against the Quran.”

    It is then added:

    “May God save all Muslims from Maudoodi and the evil and deceit of his so-called Islamic Party.”

  • Sir Sayyid Ahmad Khan [prominent Muslim modernist leader and founder of the Aligarh University for Muslims, d. 1898]:

    In his biography Hayat-i Jawaid by Maulana Hali, the storm of condemnation and takfir against Sir Sayyid is fully detailed. Read some of these lines:

    “Sir Sayyid was called atheist, irreligious, Christian, nature-worshipper, anti-Christ, and many other things. Fatwas that he was a kafir were prepared, and signatures of Maulavis of every town and city were obtained. Even those who remained silent against Sir Sayyid as regards takfir, were called kafir.” (p. 623)

    “All the Muslim sects in India, be they Sunni or Shiah, conformist or non-conformist, the seals and signatures of the known and unknown Ulama and priests of all these are on these fatwas.” (p. 627)

    A fatwa was obtained from Makka, bearing the seals of Muftis of all the four schools, in which it was written:

    “This man is an heretic, or he was inclined to unbelief (kufr) from Islamic law in some aspect. ... If he repents before he is arrested, and turns away from his misguided views, and there are clear signs of repentance from him, then he should not be killed. Otherwise, it is obligatory to kill him for the sake of the faith.” (p. 633)

    Jinnah and Iqbal [revered in Pakistan as fathers of the nation]:

    Sir Sayyid had at least expressed views on religious matters. But these people also called Jinnah as “the great kafir”. Even a true believer like Iqbal had a fatwa of kufr directed against him. Fatwas of kufr against early savants

    The pastime of declaring people as kafir is not a product of the present age. Unfortunately, this disease is very old, and there can hardly be anyone from among the great figures of Muslim religious history who escaped being a subject of such fatwas. Let us look at the great leaders of religion after the age of the Holy Prophet’s Companions.

    Abu Hanifa: He was disgraced, called ignorant, inventor of new beliefs, hypocrite and kafir. He was imprisoned and poisoned. He died in 150 A.H. [circa 768 C.E.].

    Imam Shafi‘i: He was called devil and imprisoned. Prayers were said for his death. He was taken in captivity from Yemen to Baghdad, in a condition of humiliation and degradation. He died in 204 A.H. [circa 820 C.E.].

    Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal: He was kept in prison for 28 months, with a heavy chain around his feet. He was publicly humiliated, slapped and spat upon. Every evening he used to be flogged. All this was because of the controversy regarding whether the Quran was ‘uncreated’ or ‘created’.

    Imam Malik: A resident of Madina, he too was imprisoned and flogged.

    Bukhari [Collector of Hadith]: He was exiled and died in 256 A.H. [circa 871 C.E.].

    Nasa’i [Collector of Hadith]: He was disgraced and beaten in a mosque so much that he died.

    Abdul Qadir Jilani [Saint of Baghdad, d. 1166 C.E.] was called kafir by the jurists.

    Muhiyud-Din Ibn Arabi [great philosopher and saint, d. 1240 C.E.]: The Ulama issued a fatwa against him saying: “His unbelief is greater than that of Jews and Christians”. All his followers were declared kafir, so much so that those who doubted his unbelief were called kafir.

    Rumi, Jami and Attar [now world famous Muslim saints and writers of Persia] were called kafir, and anyone not calling them kafir was also called kafir.

    Imam Ghazali [philosopher and mujaddid, d. 1111 C.E.] was called kafir, and burning his books and cursing him was declared a good deed.

    Ibn Taimiyya [Muslim philosopher and mujaddid, d. 1327 C.E.]: The King of Egypt asked for a fatwa to put him to death.

    Hafiz ibn Qayyim: imprisoned and exiled.

    Shaikh Ahmad of Sirhind [d. 1624 C.E., mujaddid in India]: called kafir.

    Shah Wali-ullah [d. 1763 C.E., mujaddid in India]: called inventor of new beliefs and misguided.

    Sayyid Ahmad Barelvi [d. 1831 C.E., mujaddid and military leader in India]: called kafir.

    Shah Ismail Shaheed [deputy of above mujaddid]: Fatwas of heresy against him obtained from Makka. FATWAS AGAINST PERVEZ

    Ghulam Ahmad Pervez, founder of the movement which publishes Tulu‘-i-Islam, from which the above extract has been taken, was himself the subject of fatwas such as those quoted below:

  • “Ghulam Ahmad Pervez is a kafir according to Islamic Shari‘ah, and excluded from the pale of Islam. No Muslim woman can remain married to him, nor can a Muslim woman enter into marriage with him. His funeral prayers cannot be said, nor is it permissible to bury him in a Muslim grave-yard. This applies not only to Pervez, but to every kafir. It also applies to any person who is a follower of his in these heretic beliefs. As he has become an apostate (murtadd), it is not permitted by the Shari‘ah to have any kind of Islamic relations with him.

    Signed: Wali Hasan Tonki, Mufti and teacher,
    Muhammad Yusuf Banori, Shaikh al-Hadith,
    Madrasa Arabiyya Islamiyya, New Town, Karachi.”

  • An organ of Maudoodi’s Jama‘at-i Islami gave the following fatwa about Pervez’s followers:

    “If they say that Shari‘ah is only that which is contained in the Quran, and all that is besides this is not Shari‘ah, then this is clear heresy. It is the same kind of heresy as the heresy of the Qadianis. In fact it is worse and more extreme than that.”

    LTTE leader praises support extended by Tamils in India By Our Correspondent

    November 28, 2008 Friday Ziqa'ad 29, 1429

    http://www.dawn.com/2008/11/28/int4.htm


    COLOMBO, Nov 27: Tamil Tigers leader Velupillai Prabhakaran has praised the support extended by the people of the Indian state of Tamil Nadu for the Tamil struggle in Sri Lanka, declared that the Sri Lankan Tamils were friends of India, and has urged the Indian government to lift its ban on his organisation, the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE).

    In his annual Great Hero’s Day address on Thursday, Mr Prabhakaran made it clear that the Tamils of Sri Lanka had completely lost faith in the ability of Sri Lanka’s majority Sinhalese community and the Sinhalese-dominated state, to meet the most basic demands of the Tamil minority, and that full independence was the only way out for the latter. He claimed that unlike successive Sinhalese-dominated governments of Sri Lanka, the Tamils and the LTTE did not want war, and were “always ready” for talks to resolve the issue amicably.

    “Our freedom movement, as well as our people, have always wished to maintain cordiality with the international community as well as neighbouring India. With this view, we wish to create a viable environment and enhance friendship. We wish to express our goodwill and are looking forward to the opportunity to build a constructive relationship,” the Tiger leader said. “Cordially, I invite those countries that have banned us, to understand our deep aspirations and friendly overtures of our people, and remove their ban on us and recognise our just struggle,” he added. In a special reference to Tamil Nadu and India, Mr Prabhakaran said: “Today, there are great changes taking place in India. The dormant voices in support of our struggle are re-emerging aloud again. There are also indications of your struggle becoming accepted there.”

    He said: “Notwithstanding the dividing sea, Tamil Nadu, with its perfect understanding of our plight, has taken heart to rise on behalf on our people at this hour of need.” The “Tamil Eelam nation” did not want war, he affirmed. “It does not favour violence. It is the Sinhala nation that waged the war on our nation which had earlier adopted the path of ahimsa and asked for justice through peaceful means,” he said. Mr Prabhakaran described the current military operations of the Sri Lankan forces as a “major war of genocide” and said that the Sri Lankan government was preventing the real news about it from reaching the outside world. It was using anti-Tamil armed groups to run a “tyrannical military rule” in areas it had taken. The LTTE leader said the Tamils would not take offers of settlement which would be made only after their military subjugation.

    “Does the Sinhala nation want to offer a solution only after the Tamils are suppressed and killed? Does it want to wipe out the true representatives of the Tamils and their bargaining power before offering a solution?” he asked.
