HASSAN

MAY 15, 2022

Muslim residents of Anandapura in the Sagar taluk of Shivamogga read out the preamble of the Indian Constitution after the Friday prayers at the Jamia Masjid in their village.

Soon after azan call at 12.30 p.m. on Fridays, Maulana Mufti Safeeruddin delivers a religious speech, followed by a talk on the Constitution by Mohammed Zakria, an advocate from Sagar. After the Juma Namaz (Friday prayers), everyone assemble with copies of the preamble. They join Mr. Zakria, who read out the script and ask others to repeat after him.

The Jamia Masjid at Anandapura has a long history, spread over four centuries. It was built by the Keladi rulers and Tipu Sultan and the Mysuru rulers had also visited the place in the later years.

“Many hardly know about the Constitution and the rights it guarantees to citizens. This is an attempt to make them understand the Constitution and underline the importance of education among our people,” Mr. Zakria told The Hindu.

Mr. Zakria and his friends thought of this initiative and members of the mosque committee and Maulvi Maulana Mufti Safiruddin supported the idea. “The Constitution treats all equally. But in practice, it is not so. Hence, we people should understand the significance of the Constitution well and protect it from attempts to disregard it,” he said.

Social activist Sadiq Yedehalli said that his religion had taught him to respect the homeland. “We respect the land by bowing our head five times a day. Similarly, we read out preamble of the Constitution to convey that we respect the law of the land as well.”

As the news of this initiative spread, members of a few other mosque committees in Shivamogga district have contacted the organizers and expressed their appreciation. “Many are inviting me to do a similar exercise in other places. I am happy with the response. Anybody can take this forward. I wish in the coming days, the Preamble is read out in many mosques and it becomes part of the routine,” said Mr. Zakria.

Saudi Arabia Executes Shia Youths from Qatif Region over Trumped-Up Terror Allegations

2022-May-15

The Saudi Ministry of Interior alleged in a statement on Saturday that the death sentences were carried out against Hussein Ali Al Abu-Abdullah and Mohammad Khedr Al-Awami, presstv reported.

The ministry further claimed that the Saudi nationals “collaborated with terrorist groups, fomented unrest and insecurity in the country, possessed weapons, ammunition as well as rocket-propelled grenades and attempted to disrupt national security".

Last month, two human rights organizations filed a complaint at the United Nations against arbitrary executions in Saudi Arabia, especially after the execution of dozens of prisoners in a single day in the ultra-conservative kingdom.

The European Saudi Organization for Human Rights (ESOHR) and Reprieve, a UK-based non-profit organization of international lawyers and investigators, announced the Riyadh regime openly declared its disregard for international principles as well as its commitments and obligations through the executions of 81 men, 41 of whom were Shia Muslims, in March.

The organizations stressed that special rapporteurs have pointed to various counts of violations, including torture, ill-treatment and arbitrary detention, in their reports, and informed the Saudi government in several letters about their occurrence.

They highlighted that the executions of anti-regime demonstrators and minors show that Saudi Arabia, contrary to official promises, continues to arbitrarily carry out death sentences.

State news agency Saudi Press Agency reported on March 12 that the authorities had executed 81 people in one day on a variety of offences. Of the 81 people, 73 were Saudi citizens, seven were Yemeni and one was a Syrian national.

Back in early January 2016, Saudi authorities also executed 47 people, including prominent Shia cleric Sheikh Nimr Baqir Al-Nimr, who had vociferously called for democracy in the kingdom and advocated anti-regime protests. Nimr had been arrested in Qatif, Eastern Province, in 2012.

Since 2015, Saudi Arabia has reportedly executed more than 900 prisoners in an increasing rate. In 2019 alone, Saudi Arabia set a record number of executions after authorities executed 184 people, despite a general decrease in the number of executions around the world.

Ever since MbS became Saudi Arabia’s de facto leader in 2017, the kingdom has arrested dozens of activists, bloggers, intellectuals and others perceived as political opponents, showing almost zero tolerance for dissent even in the face of international condemnations of the crackdown.

Muslim scholars have been executed and women’s rights campaigners have been put behind bars and tortured as freedom of expression, association, and belief continue to be denied.

Islam Net, a Salafi Islamic Organization, Uses SIAN’s Quran-Burning Footage In Fundraising Campaign, Receives Millions Of Kroner

By: Norway Today Staff

14. MAY 2022

Islam Net, a Salafi Islamic organization in Norway, has received several million kroner from supporters after using SIAN’s Quran burning as an argument to get support.

Islam Net’s leader Fahad Qureshi told the newspaper Klassekampen that they could only thank SIAN leader Lars Thorsen for being able to buy new prayer rugs and upgrade their Islamic center.

After two demonstrations in April, where SIAN first set fire to the Quran outside Stovner police station and then the following week outside Islam Net’s premises, Islam Net chose to use SIAN’s own video of the Quran burning in a fundraising campaign for its Islamic center.

Fahad Qureshi told the newspaper that the idea behind the fundraising is, among other things, to show young people that there are better ways to respond to Quran burning than to act out.

Blasphemy Case Not Required Over Masjid-i-Nabwi incident: IHC

 

Islamabad High Court/ Photo: File

Malik Asad

May 15, 2022

ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad High Court (IHC) has observed that the leadership of the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf, including its chairman Imran Khan, nominated in the first information report registered in connection with the Masjid-i-Nabwi incident, was not present at the occurrence, while the Saudi government has also not identified or sought their custody. Therefore, registration of blasphemy case against them was not required.

A written order released by the IHC on Saturday on the identical petitions filed by PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry and others seeking to quash the FIRs reg­istered in connection with the said incident said that the contents of complaints lodged by private citizens did not fulfil requirement for invoking sections of the Pakistan Penal Code (PPC) related to blasphemy against PTI leaders.

“A plain reading of the FIR registered in District Faisalabad, prima-facie, shows that the offences are not attracted to the extent of the nominated leadership of PTI” observed the IHC.

“It is an admitted position that the leadership of Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf was not present at the place where the incident had taken place. It has also not been denied that the authorities in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia have taken cognizance of the detestable conduct and proceedings have been initiated against the persons who were involved”, said the court order authored by IHC Chief Justice Athar Minallah.

Moreover, the government has not received any information from the Saudi authorities suspecting involvement of the PTI leadership, the order further said.

The court noted that religious sentiments ought to be respected but, simultaneously, it is the obligation of the state, as defined under Article 7 of the Constitution, to take appropriate measures to ensure that religion is not allowed to be exploited and used for personal or political gains.

It is an undisputed fact that religion has been exploited by organs of the state in the past and such exploitation has led to putting lives of innocent persons at grave risk. The misuse of, and registration of false/fake cases under offences described under Chapter XV of the PPC has created an environment of intolerance and has encouraged vigilante extrajudicial killings, observed Justice Minallah.

He referred to the gruesome mob lynching of Mashal Khan in 2017 and Sri Lankan national Priyantha Kumara Diyawadana recently in Sialkot and termed these as the “tip of the iceberg.”

Such vigilante killings are the worst form of violation of fundamental rights and intolerable in a society governed under the Constitution, he observed.

“The reckless registration of false/fake criminal cases in relation to offences described under Chapter XV of PPC exposes innocent victims to grave risk and thus it is violative of the fundamental rights guaranteed under the Constitution,” the court order states adding that “it is an obligation of the State and each organ, described under Article 7 of the Constitution, to ensure that recklessness in registration of criminal cases in relation to offences described under Chapter XV of the Constitution is avoided and dealt with effectively.”

The court directed the interior ministry to obtain reports from the respective provincial governments. Moreover, the federal government has been directed to ensure that no case is registered against the PTI leadership unless there is verifiable information regarding their involvement in the incident.

Justice Minallah asked the federal government to take appropriate measures to dispel the alleged perception of exploitation or use of religious sentiments in the context of registration of criminal cases.

President Raisi: British Shiite, American Sunni Anti-Unity, Two Sides Of The Same Coin

 

The President described the position of Sunni people and clerics in Iran as important in the history of the country and said, "Sunni clerics and thinkers have provided many services in their own country, and Shiites and Sunnis have lived together in Islamic Iran for many years".

-----

2022/05/15

Speaking in a meeting with a group of Sunni scholars and clerics, Ayatollah Seyyed Ebrahim Raisi referred to the government's serious efforts to solve people's livelihood problems, and stated, "The government pays attention to the concerns of the people that are conveyed to the clerics and tries to solve these problems".

Explaining the situation in the country at the time of the inauguration of the 13th Administration, Ayatollah Raisi said, "Budget deficit of nearly 500 trillion, remaining monthly debt of 10 trillion, death of nearly 700 people a day with coronavirus, unprecedented inflation, injection of the 4k-toman currency to the market and the unfavorable situation of the stocks of basic goods in the country were among the issues that the government was dealing with in the early days after its inauguration".

Ayatollah Raisi described the payment of the 4k-toman currency as one of the country's problems and stated, "In practice, a large part of what was paid as the subsidized exchange rate was in the service of corruption and rent.

In fact, we had a waste of the country's resources and subsidies did not reach the people, so in order to prevent this situation from continuing, it was decided to give this amount to the last chain and the main beneficiary, the people and consumers, instead of paying to the first supply chain".

Emphasizing that paying 400,000 tomans per month to each person is a difficult task, experts consider this method as a step towards approaching justice and eliminating absolute poverty.

In another part of his speech, referring to the important position of Sunni Iranians and scholars in the history of the country, the President said, "You Sunni clerics and thinkers have provided many services in their own country, and Shiites and Sunnis have lived together in Islamic Iran for many years".

Ayatollah Raisi referred to the request of some Sunni scholars to employ them more in managerial positions and said, "Using qualified people is an important and necessary thing, and the criterion for the government is efficiency, and in every province, I go, I emphasized the local forces must be employed more".

In another part of his speech, Ayatollah Raisi referred to the growth of takfiri movements in the region and said, "We must be careful about the influence of Takfiri and Salafi ideas in the country; British Shiites and Sunni Americans are two sides of the same coin, and both are anti-unity in the Islamic world, while unity is a strategy for the Islamic Republic of Iran, not a tactic".

Earlier in the day, the Jewish Temple Mount groups called on Jews to visit the Al-Aqsa Mosque on Sunday to celebrate the annual Second Passover holiday, which this year coincides with the Nakba Day, or Day of the Catastrophe, marked by the Palestinians on May 15 every year, the day after Israel's declaration of independence in 1948.

By ASSOCIATED PRESS

CARLISLE, Pa. (AP) - Republican Senate hopeful Mehmet Oz is stepping up his criticism of far-right candidates in Pennsylvania who are gaining traction ahead of Tuesday's primary election.
