Arabic Twitter Hashtag Calls For Hindus To Be Deported From The Gulf Over Violence Against Muslims In India

By Ally Foster

19 Jun, 2022

There is a growing call for millions of Hindus to be expelled from Gulf countries in response to the ongoing brutality against India's Muslim minority.

Tensions boiled over last month after Nupur Sharma, a member of India's Hindu nationalist ruling party, made derogatory remarks about the Prophet Mohammed.

Sharma, spokeswoman for Prime Minister Narendra Modi, made televised remarks on May 26 about the youngest wife of the prophet of Islam, which triggered demonstrations across the Islamic world.

The remarks set off diplomatic protests not only in rival Pakistan but in wealthy Arab states that usually enjoy close relations with India.

The party apologised and suspended Sharma as well as Naveen Kumar Jindal, another figure who was accused of inflammatory tweets about the Prophet Mohammed.

But many Muslim nations have seen this move from India's government as lacklustre, particularly considering the brutal retaliation against members of India's 200 million-strong Muslim minority that took to the streets in protest.

Multiple demonstrators were killed, hundreds were arrested and footage of protesters' homes being demolished in relation have emerged online.

In response to the brutality, an Arabic hashtag began trending on Twitter demanding all Hindus be expelled from Gulf countries, where more than eight million Indian nationals live and work.

"Gulf countries can do more than condemnation, Indian Muslims suffering under fascist regimes, we must stop the Anti-Muslim genocide," they wrote.

MENA

June 19, 2022

CAIRO, June 18 (MENA) – Al Azhar Grand Imam Ahmed El Tayyeb called for considering the adequacy and efficacy of legislation and charters on combating intolerance and hatred and ensuring guarantees to adhere to them in light of the offensive remarks made by the spokesman of the Indian ruling party against Muslims and Prophet Muhammad.

Tayyeb’s call came on Saturday in a post published on Facebook and a tweet on Twitter on the occasion of the International Day for Countering Hate Speech.

The grand imam noted that the international day comes in conjunction with the increase in waves of intolerance and hatred against Muslims and the mocking of their religious symbols and sanctities.

Islamic State Says Attack On Sikh Temple In Afghanistan Is Revenge For Prophet Insults By India’s Ruling Party Members

 

A Taliban fighter guards a Sikh temple following an attack by gunmen in Kabul on June 18, 2022.

June 19, 2022

(CNN)An Islamic State affiliate has claimed responsibility for an attack on a Sikh temple in Afghanistan's capital Kabul that killed at least two people and injured seven.

The attack on Saturday was "an act of revenge" following insults made by members of India's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party about the Prophet Mohammed, ISIS-Khorasan said on its Telegram channel.

Nupur Sharma, a spokesperson for the party, had made derogatory remarks regarding the Prophet Mohammed during a panel discussion on a news channel and her comments were allegedly followed by anti-Islam comments by another party leader on Twitter.

Seven gunmen had tried to storm the temple in the early hours of Saturday morning and all were killed after a standoff that lasted several hours, according to Kabul police.

ISIS-K said in its Telegram post that its suicide bomber Abu Muhammad al-Tajik had gained entry to the temple by throwing a hand grenade at the security guard officer at the entrance, killing him.

ISIS-K also claimed its members had clashed with Taliban government fighters trying to reach the temple, targeting them with a car bomb and four other explosive devices.

It said the clashes between ISIS-K and the Taliban fighters had lasted three hours and that the suicide bomber al-Tajik had died in these exchanges.

"The IEA [Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan] strongly condemns the targeting of the Hindu shrine in Kabul by the enemies of the Afghan people. The IEA expresses its condolences to the families of the victims and assures that serious measures will be taken to identify and punish the perpetrators of this crime," Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid, tweeted referring to the Sikh temple.

Afghanistan, once home to tens of thousands of Sikhs and Hindus, has seen numerous attacks on religious minority groups since the Taliban took control of the country in 2021, following the withdrawal of US forces.

Last year, ISIS claimed another attack against the Sikh community that killed more than two dozen people at another temple in Kabul.

Saturday's attack comes amid growing outrage in the Muslim world towards India for the comments by the BJP members and New Delhi is struggling to contain the diplomatic fallout from Muslim-majority nations like the United Arab Emirates, Malaysia, Oman and Iraq.

The UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) condemned the most recent attack, calling on Twitter for the "protection of all minorities in Afghanistan, including Sikhs, Hazaras and Sufis."

The European Union Ambassador to Afghanistan also condemned the attack, saying "religious (and ethnic) pluralism needs to be protected with full force."

India's Foreign Ministry said it was "deeply concerned at the reports emanating from Kabul about an attack on a sacred Gurdwara in that city."

Imam Speaks Out After A Blackburn Worker Who Disposes Islamic Literature ‘Confronted’ In A Street In Birmingham

 

Imam speaks out after worker who disposes Islamic Literature ‘confronted’ in street

-----

17th June,2022

An imam has spoken out after a Blackburn man who collects and safely disposes of sacred Islamic texts was "confronted" in a street in Birmingham.

The incident happened on Saturday, June 11, when the worker from the Islamic Literature Collection organisation was stopped by several men during one of his collections in the West Midlands.

A Blackburn Imam has now also spoken out saying he has "inspected the work" and "all items are correctly disposed of in accordance with Shariah (Islamic) law".

The Islamic Literature Service travels to locations across the country and people can hand over their old books and other scared texts for safe disposal or redistribution. For this, the organisation charges £2.50 per kg.

In a TikTok video shared extensively and posted this week, a man can be seen asking a worker from the Islamic Literature Collection service what he does with sacred texts.

Not content with the answer the man, who it is believed from another organisation from Halifax which carries out a similar service, asks "where it is buried?" to which the worker says he is "unable to divulge".

The worker says he has "nothing to hide" and "does not want to argue," and says his organisation tells people "if you trust us then use the service".

A further video sees a heated exchange with the man, named as Khurshid, following the worker who says "you cannot say anything without any evidence".

A message posted by Mufti Abdullah Bismillah, Imam of Masjide Noorul Islam, Audley Range, Blackburn was shared this week and responded to the allegations made in the TikTok videos.

He said: “I have inspected the work undertaken by Islamic Literature Collection and can confirm all items are correctly disposed of in accordance with shariah (Islamic Law).

He told us: “All I wanted to know was where the literature is buried. This was my question. And if you wish to give them to us we can bury them for you.”

UN Experts Warn of Islamic State Tie to Islamist Rebels in Congo

19-06-2022

(Bloomberg) -- United Nations experts warned of growing communication between the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant region and an Islamist rebel group in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo known as the Allied Defence Forces, or ADF.

Despite joint military operations against the group by the Congolese and Ugandan armies since November, the ADF has expanded its area of operations in gold and oil-rich Ituri province over the past year, the UN’s group of experts on Congo said in their annual report published Friday.

Communication between the Islamic State and the ADF “strengthened” during this time, though the experts could not document “direct support to and command and control over ADF.” The report warned that recruiters for the rebels were active throughout central Africa, “in particular along the Kenyan and Tanzanian coastlines and in Burundi.”

The ADF, which originated in Uganda more than two decades ago, has been linked to the death of more than 1,300 people since 2021, according to the UN, along with multiple bombings and attempted bombings in Congo, Uganda and Rwanda. The group has also stepped up its use of suicide attacks, sophisticated explosive devices and violent propaganda videos, the report said.

The insecurity has disrupted rehabilitation work on important trade routes connecting Uganda and northeastern Congo, which prompted the increased military cooperation between the two countries last year, according to the report.

Muhammad Ali's 1972 journey to Islam and Hajj

James Langton

Jun 19, 2022

There was an unmistakable face among the hundreds of thousands of pilgrims who made the journey to Makkah for Hajj in 1972.

Wearing the simple white cotton robes worn by all men who carry out the pilgrimage was Muhammad Ali. The self-styled greatest heavyweight boxing champion of the world was instantly recognisable, even to those with little interest in the sport.

That image should have represented the high point of Ali’s spiritual journey, the pilgrimage to Makkah that all able Muslims are required to perform and one of the five pillars of Islam.

Islamic State claims responsibility for Kabul gurudwara attack

Web Desk

June 19, 2022

The IS (Islamic State) claimed responsibility for an attack on a Gurdwara in Afghanistan, saying it was retaliation for 'insults' to the Prophet Mohammed, news agency AFP reported. In a message posted on its Amaq propaganda site, ISIS said Saturday's attack targeted Hindus and Sikhs and the "apostates" who protected them in "an act of support for the Messenger of Allah". The group said one of its fighters "penetrated a temple for Hindu and Sikh polytheists in Kabul, after killing its guard, and opened fire on the pagans inside with his machine gun and hand grenades".

Several blasts tore through a gurdwara in Kabul on Saturday, killing two persons, including a Sikh, and injuring seven others, while Afghan security personnel thwarted a bigger tragedy by stopping an explosive-laden vehicle from reaching the place of worship of the minority community in the war-torn country.

Macron's second term on line as polls open in French parliamentary election

19-06-2022

France has began voting in the final round of parliamentary elections, with centrist President Emmanuel Macron's coalition looking to hold off a challenge from a newly formed left-wing alliance.

Forecasters predict a re-run of last week's low turnout at polling stations, which opened at 8:00 am on Sunday (0600 GMT) and will close at 8:00 pm.

The vote will be decisive for Macron's second-term agenda following his re-election in April, with the 44-year-old needing a majority in order to push through promised tax cuts, welfare reform and raise the retirement age.

Chuvash Muslims Promoting Expanded Version of National Identity

Paul Goble

June 19, 2022

Staunton, June 1 – A group of Chuvash Muslims is promoting a new kind of identity among their nationality, broader than the traditional Moscow-promoted one of descent from parentage but narrower and more culturally defined than the identities many Muslim neophytes adopt.

That has led it to be attacked both by Chuvash nationalists who view them as a threat to the continued existence of the Chuvash nation and by Chuvash Muslims who reject the idea that they should be ethnically defined at all, but this stance has opened the way to the inclusion of many who “associate” themselves with the Chuvash but would not be included by the others.

Trump’s Shadow Looms Over Fading Iran Nuclear Talks

By Michael Crowley

June 18, 2022

WASHINGTON — Many factors are to blame for the dying prospects of reviving the 2015 Iran nuclear deal. But perhaps nothing has hobbled the Biden administration’s efforts more than the legacy of President Donald J. Trump.

By Justin Ong

19 Jun 2022

KUALA LUMPUR, June 19 — Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye’s claim he was dropped from defending the Bukit Bintang seat in 1990 on Lim Kit Siang’s instructions would not have stayed a secret until now, the latter insisted today.

In his latest rebuttal of the former ally turned critic’s revelations in his memoirs titled Lee Lam Thye: Recalling a Lifetime of Service, Lim said it was unlikely that only Lee alone possessed this knowledge in all of Malaysian politics.

by Chibuzo Ukaibe

19-06-2022

A civi society group, New Nigeria Collective (NNC), has cautioned the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, against a Muslim-Muslim ticket, saying it would damage his life-long presidential ambition.

The group, in a statement by its general secretary, Bosun Osifowora, said Tinubu’s delay in naming his running mate and resort to a ‘place holder’ option was because he is conflicted on whether to use a Muslim-Muslim or Muslim-Christian ticket.
