Taliban Abducts Three Indian Labourers; ISIS Kills 39 Indian Labourers In Syria But Our Ulema And Journalists Glorify These Extremists

New Age Islam News Bureau

08 February 2019

The extremist organization, Taliban has abducted 3 Indian labourers from Giridih in Jharkhand working in Afghanistan and has taken them captive for the last 9 months. This is not the first time they have abducted or killed innocent people who had nothing to do with them with their fight against the Afghan government or the US.

 In 2017, American Army rescued an American couple with their children from the captivity of Taliban.  Coleman Boyle was allegedly raped and her husband and children were continuously beaten. They were held captive for five years until rescued. In Syria, 39 Indian labourers were abducted in 2014 by the ISIS and the Indian government confirmed their death in 2018.

The story of Nadia Murad and other girls of her tribe is well known in the world. These extremist and terrorist organizations kill innocent people and justify their action by quoting Quranic verses and Hadiths.

Our ulema do not come out against these extremist organizations and even covertly support them by giving lame excuses. In 2014, they had even got justification in their actions in the event of 69 nurses from Kerala being released by the ISIS who had been kept hostage for 23 days.

This incident had given our ulema an opportunity to glorify and support them. Urdu media was agog with news and articles praising the ISIS who had treated the nurses like their sisters. But the story of Nadia Murad or Coleman Boyle does not create any feeling among these ulema and journalists.

The family of three hostages have been spending sleepless nights for the last 9 months and but no Indian religious organization or personality has condemned the Taliban or requested their release.

Indian religious organizations should raise this issue and openly condemn the Taliban for their un-Islamic acts and the Muslim fraternity of India and the world should stand up in support of the abducted labourers and create political and religious pressure on Taliban to get them released.

  • Thank you Mr Ghaus, I appreciate your clear statement on the issue of terrorist organistions claiming to be truly Islamic. My experience and observation is that Muslim religious scholars are very diplomatic. They do say that Islam is a religion of peace and does not support or sponsor terrorism but they do not say that this or that organisation is terrorist or extremist. This should stop. They should name the organisations as me and you do and condmn them. Only then Muslims will clearly know that these organisations are un Islamic and they should not be influenced by them.

  • See what does this guy say,"
    ہندوستانی مسلمانوں کو ایک منصوبے کے تحت کچھ غیر ضروری سوالوں میں الجھایا گیا اور بیجا طور پر اُنہیں خوف و خدشات میں مبتلا کیا گیا جس سے عام مسلمانوں کے ساتھ ساتھ مسلمانوں کا دانشور طبقہ بھی بری طرح متاثر ہوا۔ غلط فہمیوں اور خوف  و خدشات کے بچھے ہوئے ان جالوں کو سمجھنے کے لیے ایشیا ٹائمس پر پڑھیں میری تازہ تحریر۔

  • New Age Islam is not a news website. It's purpose is to fight extremist ideologies among Muslim for introspection.

  • Taliban has abducted 3 Indian labourers. This is really a heart wrenching incident. Our state must take initiative such an abduction.

    That the extremist organizations like Taliban kill civilians and justify their actions by misusing Quranic verses and Ahadith (plural of hadith), It becomes the responsibility of all Ulama and schoarls to condmen and refute the terror misuses. Yes it is true, some have issued fatwas against Taliban and ISIS but terrorism should be refuted until removed from the face of the earth.

    If any “Ulama” glorifies Taliban for its crimes, this act of him will be brazenly un-Islamic and he must be prosecuted for that.

    Even Pakistani Supreme Court has taken this step and told the fatwa givers that if they supported Terrorism and incited hate, they would be prosecuted.
