Top Pakistani cleric Maulana Irfan ul Haq quotes an obviously concocted Hadees against idol-worshippers of India and appeals to all Pakistanis to take arms to destroy all infidels from the Indian sub-continent. The term infidel and idol-worshipper obviously includes in his dictionary the overwhelming majority of Muslims who show veneration to the great Sufi saints who brought Islam to South Asia.
The Maulana claims that Prophet Muhammad has predicted that one day India will be conquered by Mujahideen and all idol-worshippers will be destroyed. Those who will participate in this bloody war will go straight to Heaven. This is called Ghazwa-e-Hind. This is one of the many examples of how fanatic Mullahs brainwash Pakistani people and promote terrorism against India. Read below the full script of the speech rendered into English.
Will Indian Muslim leaders and Ulema please stand up and say that this Hadees is an obvious concoction of the Pakistani Mullahs. If not now, when? How long will we silently watch our religion being hijacked by fanatics, and to our detriment?
These petrodollar funded fanatics are already destroying Sufi shrines in Pakistan and in several African countries. Nearly all religious, architectural heritage of Islam has been already destroyed from Hejaz now called Saudi Arabia. The few remaining around Masjid-e-Nabwi in Madina are on the verge of destruction.
Now they are bent on attacking India too. When will we speak out, confront them, at least say that this is not Islam.

Pakistan Has Been Created for the Ghazwa-e-Hind
Transcripted Extract from Lecture of Pakistani cleric Maulana Irfan ul Haq)
Translated from Urdu into English by the New Age Islam Edit Desk
You see, Allah eliminated idolatry and polytheism from the entire Arab peninsula, but He had set some period of time for His prophet to accomplish this work which was still incomplete even at the time of his demise. Polytheism and idolatry were yet to be uprooted from the rest of the world. Therefore, in his final days, the Prophet issued an order. He said, “There will be a Ghazwa (Islamic battle) in India, in which a group of my Ummah would participate and they will be granted a position equal to that of my foremost followers. In this jihad, some people will be killed and some others will be arrested. After achieving the conquest, the group will join the army of Isa Ibn-e-Maryam (Jesus) in Syria.”
The day on which the Prophet issued this order is the foundation day for Pakistan. The country came into existence on that very day. It implies that the idea behind the establishment of this country was that its citizens would put an end to the idolatry and polytheism prevailing in the world. And if there is one place in the world where idolatry and polytheism prevail in their gravest form it is the Indian sub-continent. Therefore, Pakistanis should feel fortunate enough to have a chance of attaining the position of the foremost followers of the Prophet.
This secret was open to the messenger of God and his companions who were great thinkers, intellectuals and people of spirituality. Imagine, how blessed the companion of the Prophet Hazrat Abu Huraira was who told the Prophet: “Oh Messenger of Allah, please pray for me that I could survive so long so that I could find a chance to participate in any of such movements”. Abu Hurairah was one of the companions of the Prophet during his last three years. But he wanted to attain the position of the foremost followers whose virtues have been mentioned even in the Holy Quran. He wished to reach their position, but the Prophet did not respond to his plea and remained silent. Imagine, how fortunate the Pakistanis are who would participate in the Prophetic Battle for India (Ghazwa-e-Hind).
This is precisely why you Pakistanis are criticised by all the evil forces and especially by Indian people. For they know very well why this country has been established. They fully understand why this nation has emerged. But you people do not have the faintest idea about it. You don’t realise it. You have not even given any thought to it.
Almost eight years ago, they founded an institute namely “ND3” which now came to be known as N.D.U (National Defence University). Their war codes would finish in a closing session at the institute. Raja Tariq, who hails from our own town Jhelum, was the then Navy chief. Once he had to deliver his address in the closing session, in which he said: “I wonder why the Westerners, who form their strategies for us, see a big Islamic revolution emerging in this region. While I do not see any sign of Islam in it when I meet people and view their attitudes and day to day life. I would rather say that people are growing more sinful, more irreligious and more vicious. They claim that they manage to see what we cannot. They say they have great psychologists and historians who check your attitudes and have more in-depth knowledge about you than you yourselves. They better know when your attitudes will turn into what. No one else can properly do it except them.
See! Here the word “Ghazwa” has been used. Needless to tell the intellectual gathering present over here that “Ghazwa” means an Islamic battle in which the prophet himself participated, be it a big military expedition or a small-scale battle. So, when the Prophet is no more now to participate in this battle physically, why has it been called “Ghazwa”? Have you really thought about it? Simply, because it is none other than Prophet’s own mission. So, you have to carry on this Prophetic mission. This is an honour that Allah has bestowed on Pakistanis. And this is the cause that led to the establishment of Pakistan. Pakistanis should get ready to fight Ghazwa-e-Hind.
Unfortunately, we have not yet been made aware of it. Majority of us do not even know what Ghazwa-e-Hind is, when it will happen and how it will proceed. People are running after luxuries of worldly life. They are running after trivial things like small houses, some goods and other materials of little luxury. But they have forgotten the big aim of life that will help them attain the greatest position granted to the foremost followers of the Prophet.
Since Pakistan is based on the foundation of Ghazwa-e-Hind, you will have to gear up for that. You must also know how we got it confirmed. There was a sheikh Abdul Lateef Shah, also known as Bade Imam. He died 442 years ago and was buried in Rawalpindi. A collection of his prophecies was discovered by late Qutubulllah Shah when he was ambassador to Holland. One of his prophecies clearly said that his grave would be built around a city named after Islam that would be centre for the renaissance of Islam. Qutubullah Shah has brought the collection of his prophecies here. Now it is available in Pakistan.
You see, one part of his prophecy has come true, that is, a city has been built around his grave. The capital transferred from Karachi to Islamabad, a city that has been named after Islam. Thus, Pakistan had been established 442 years ago and it was manifest that its mission would be to serve as a centre for the renaissance of Islam. What has been written on its back is that if you are true believers, you will surely triumph. This is what this saint of Allah had indicated to. There was no map or book at that time to confirm the exact place where Islamabad had to be built. But, like a Godly man, he prophesised and confirmed it.
Therefore, I appeal to you all to fight the Ghazw-e-Hind. I can say with full conviction that those who strongly condemn you know very well that rays of light will emanate from this country only.
All you have to do is to finish the incomplete mission that the Prophet left behind at the time of his demise. You just need to realise that the participants of the Ghazwa-e-Hind are playing a pivotal role in the national development of Pakistan, and whoever causes any harm to this country is certainly against the cause of the Ghazwa-e-Hind. Come what may, whatever the circumstances may be, you must not oppose Pakistan. Keep up your sacrifices and have patience!!!
To a maulana—incarnation of falsehood itself for only God
is Maulanaa 3-150, 9-51 and many more. For them there is a hadis supporting every
requirement of theirs for the occasion. That is why Quarn says:-
45-6 Such are the verses We have recited to you in truth:
then in what hadis will they believe after rejecting God and his verses (7-185)?
In 2-79 the Book curses those who concoct such falsehood and
then they say this is from God—for their own gains.
These criminals mujrimeen 11-116 who persist in sins will flourish
as parasites mutrifoon 56-46 as long as there are ignorant people to venerate them
as their masters, maulana in Quranic sense!
Maulana Irfan is a liar and a war-monger. It is the duty of subcontinental ulemas to denounce such concocted Hadiths and such mischievous doctrines as Ghazwa-e-Hind.
