Majlis Tahaffuz e Khatm e Nabuwwat Protest against Inclusion of Ahmediyyas in Muslim Census

Aug 11, 2016

HYDERABAD: The Majlis Tahaffuze Khatme Nabuwat (MTKN), a body of prominent religious scholars, on Tuesday slammed the Centre for treating the Ahmadiyyas, also known as Qadiyanis, as a part of the Muslim community in the Census 2011.

The MTKN contends that the Ahmediya community cannot be considered a part of mainstream Islam and maintained that it follows a different religion.

According to a press release issued by the organisation, there is consensus among Islamic scholars from all major sects across the world that the Ahmediyyas are not a part of Islam. It also claimed that it was in 1974 that the Muslim World League in its international conference in Mecca had declared that the group is not a be a part of Islam.

According to Maulana Ansarullah Qasmi from the MTKN, the Ahmediyya community believes that its founder Mirza Ghulam Ahmad was the second manifestation of Prophet Muhammad. This, he said, is against the fundamental beliefs of Islam. This concept is against the basic beliefs of Islam that Prophet Muhammad is the last of all prophets. Further it is also wrong to say that there are avatars of prophets," he said.

Maulana Qasmi said that the MTKN had written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2015 "informing" him of the issue, that the Ahmediyya community should not be considered a part of Islam.

The Muslim panel of scholars which includes All India Muslim Personal Law Board member Maulana Khalid Saifullah Rahmani and Mufti Mohammed Abdul Mughni, among others, demanded that the Centre treat the Ahmadiyya community as a separate religious group. "We demand that action be taken at the earliest," Maulana Qasmi said.

Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen president Asaduddin Owaisi too expressed his displeasure at the Centre treating the community as Muslim. In a series of tweets, Owaisi denounced the move. "Prophethood terminated with Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him whereas Qadianis say the opposite (sic)," he tweeted. In another tweet he said, "This inclusion was done during Cong /BJP Question t both party Muslims members what is yr opinion about Prophethood (sic)."

However, the Ahmediyya community objected to MTKN's statement. According to Mohammed Sohail, president of Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat, the religious body "has no right to comment on the Muslim nature of the community". "Who are they to say whether we are Muslim or non-Muslim. Why are they trying to create a Pakistan like situation here? We have the Indian Constitution which gives us the right to practice our faith. We are sure that the Centre will not heed their words. Their demand is wrong."

Syrian Military Planes Drop "Surrender Now" Leaflets over Aleppo

August 11, 2016

TEHRAN (FNA)- The Syrian air force dropped leaflets over the terrorist-held regions in Aleppo, calling on the militants to surrender and vowing to liberate the region soon.

The Syrian army aircraft dropped leaflets reading "Surrender Now" over the Aleppo city to give the Takfiri terrorists a last chance to lay down their arms and surrender to the authorities.

"The Syrian aircraft dropped thousands of leaflets over the terrorist group's strongholds and positions in Aleppo reading surrender now," military sources said on Thursday.

On Wednesday, the Syrian fighter jets launched several rounds of attacks on terrorist groups' military convoys in Northwestern and Southwestern Aleppo, preventing them from supplying arms and fresh forces for Jeish al-Fatah in the Southern districts of Aleppo city.

Long columns of terrorists' vehicles in different roads near Saraqib, al-Zerbeh, Taftnaz, Kahn Touman, Haraytan and Kafr Hamra were hit badly in the Syrian fighter jets' strikes.

None of the convoy could deliver army, ammunition and fresh forces to battlefield in Southern districts of Aleppo.

In the meantime, Jeish al-Fatah positions in residential project of 10170, Southern side of al-Hakimeh school and al-Ameriyeh neighborhood were targeted in Syrian air attacks.

Several armored vehicles were destroyed in Syrian air attacks in Khan Touman, Khan al-Asal and al-Artab.

Syrian artillery and missile units opened fire at terrorists' centers in Western side of Khan Touman, while resistance forces' drones targeted Jeish al-Fatah's positions in the village of Khalseh.

Reports said on Tuesday that a large number of army soldiers and their popular allies were waiting to receive the operation code from the Aleppo Operations Command Center to storm Jeish al-Fatah's defense lines in the Southern and Southwestern parts of the city.

U.S. Court Rejects Muslim's Demand to Use Shariah

August 11, 2016

A state court in Minnesota, which already is heavily influenced by a large population of Muslim immigrants and has one district represented in Congress by a Muslim, has decided that in America, it’s American inheritance law that applies.

The recent ruling from the Court of Appeals affirmed a Hennepin County District Court decision that the widow, Nariman Sirag Elsayed Khalil, of a taxi driver who died in an accident should be the one to benefit from a $183,000 settlement over her husband’s death.

It was the cab driver’s brother who argued in court that Islamic law should apply, so that the widow of Nadir Ibrahim Ombabi would only get 25 percent of the wrongful death settlement, 16.7 percent should go to his mother’s estate and the rest to Ombabi’s siblings, “with the males to receive ‘twice the share of the female.'”

The opinion, which was marked “unpublished” and not to be used for citation, involved the claim of Hosameldin Ibrahim Imbabi of Gold River, California.

Representing himself, he claimed that all of the parties in the case were Muslims, so the state court should apply Islamic law.

“House of War: Islam’s Jihad Against the World” conveys what the West needs to know about Islam and the violent, expansionary ideology that seeks the subjugation and destruction of other faiths, cultures and systems of government

The appeals court ruling, however, knocked down his assertions, pointing out that he didn’t even bother providing a transcript of lower-court proceedings so the appellate judges could check his claims.

“This court therefore cannot resolve issues that require a transcript, such as whether the district court judge made statements indicating that he had predetermined the outcome of the case or whether the district court erred by refusing to allow cross-examination of certain witnesses,” the court found.

“None of appellant’s assertions of error are adequately supported by legal argument or citation to legal authority. For example, appellant’s main assertion of error appears to be that the district court should have applied Sudanese Islamic law instead of Minnesota law when distributing the wrongful-death settlement proceeds.

“But the appellant does not explain why, other than stating, ‘[he] strongly believe[s] that the principles of the private international law should have been applied from the beginning…”

The ruling found: “The district court found that ‘there is no credible evidence to prove Mr. Ombabi’s mother, brother, or sisters experienced a pecuniary loss, or more importantly what that pecuniary loss is, because of Mr. Ombabi’s passing.’ Accordingly, the district court ordered than 100 percent of settlement proceeds remaining after deduction of attorney feeds, litigation expenses, funeral costs, and trustee services be distributed to respondent.”

Legal blogger Eugene Volokh said of the decision, “I think it was also influenced by a basic American legal principle: American courts apply American law, rather than one rule for Muslims, one rule for Christians, one rule for Jews, and so on.

“Sometimes American law does allow the implementation of foreign legal rules, or religious legal rules. A contract might, for instance, call for applying the law of Sudan, or a will might specify that the property be distributed one-fourth to the widow, one-sixth to the parents, one-sixth each to the three brothers, and one-twelfth to the one sister (whether or not that’s the Shariah-mandated split). A court may well enforce such provisions, subject to any constraints imposed by American public policy. (For instance, a contract calling for the cutting off of a person’s hand would be unenforceable; a will calling for a court to apply a legal rule that requires the court to distinguish males from females might be unenforceable, though a will calling for a court to distribute property to named parties would be enforceable.)

“But there, too, the principle is simple: American courts apply American law, including when an American law principle calls on American courts to enforce a foreign judgment, to apply foreign law or to follow terms in a contract or a will that deliberately track foreign or religious law. But there has to be an American law principle calling for such application of foreign law. And in this case, there was no such principle,” he said.

UN rights boss warns Turkey against ‘thirst for revenge’ after failed coup attempt

August 11, 2016

The United Nations’ top human rights official urged Turkey on Aug. 10 to stem a “thirst for revenge” and uphold detainees’ right to due process following the failed July 15 coup attempt that led to the arrest of more than 16,000 people.

Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein, the U.N. high commissioner for human rights, told Reuters he had no sympathy with coup plotters who sought to topple the democratically elected Turkish government on July 15, but voiced alarm at the scale of the crackdown.

In an interview in his office alongside Lake Geneva, he said he had received allegations of torture and mistreatment of detainees in Turkey and was seeking a visit by independent monitors to investigate.

Ankara rejected accusations it was carrying out a purge and described arrests and sackings as normal measures to prevent a repetition of the failed coup that killed 240 people. It accused Western allies of failing to show support over the coup attempt.

Interior Minister Efkan Ala said late on Aug. 10 that 16,899 people had been formally arrested while 5,171 were still being processed. A total of 76,100 civil servants were suspended from duty.

“What we need to put across is that the thirst for revenge ... be reined in and that proper procedures and guarantees of the pursuit of due process are upheld in respect of all these Turkish citizens not withstanding that some are believed to have turned against the authorities,” the commissioner said.http://www.hurriyetdailynews.com/un-rights-boss-warns-turkey-against-thirst-for-revenge-after-failed-coup-attempt.aspx?pageID=238&nID=102727&NewsCatID=359
