Darul Uloom Islamic Seminary Had Issued Seven Fatwas against Zakir Naik

July 14, 2016

Lucknow, July 14: Deoband’s influential Darul Uloom Islamic seminary had issued seven Fatwas against the controversial Zakir Naik over the years. They described his televangelism as “religiously deviated” and his talks as “unauthentic”. Times of India quoted one of the Fatwas issued on April 7, 2009, which read, “A common man may not be able to differentiate between right and wrong. Therefore, people should avoid listening to his speeches; they are feared to fall in deviation.”

The seminary termed Naik as a “self-styled scholar” and said that he does not have the authority to give sermons on Islam. The seminary called him a preacher of ‘Ghair Muqallidin’ (a different school of thought), reported TOI. (ALSO READ: Zakir Naik cancels press conference via Skype)

The seminary also called Naik a scholar of English” who wears “coat and pants”. In a fatwa dated February 13, 2012, the seminary questions, “Is wearing the dress of Jews and Christians established from the holy Quran? They also described him as preacher who does not wear Islamic dress and said that one should not lean towards his speeches. They also said that Muslims should avoid paying heed to him. (ALSO READ: Zakir Naik: Inspiration for Dhaka terrorists or victim of media trial?)

The seminary said that the fatwa was issued before the Bangladesh attack in which the attackers were said to be inspired from Naik’s talks. “Our fatwas were in response to specific questions asked by people referring to Zakir Naik’s statements in public sessions. These Fatwas should not be linked to the present controversy as they were issued in a different contexts,” said seminary’s spokesperson Maulana Ashraf Usmani.

Naik Skype address to media was cancelled four times. Naik’s supporters accused authorities of not letting him explain his stand on the issue. Naik’s spokesperson said that his address was cancelled without valid reason.

Rival groups held press conferences hailing Naik , who delayed his return from Saudi Arabia after a visit for Umrah.

Al-Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent Asks Kashmiri Muslims to Follow Burhan Wani’s Footsteps

July 14, 2016

Al-Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent (AQIS) has released a message exhorting Kashmiri Muslims to follow Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani’s footsteps and carry out attacks using petrol bombs or “a dagger or knife to slit the throats of forces of Kufr”.

Stating that “the jihad of Mujahid Burhan and his companions is the only true path”, it said the response of the “Kashmiri Muslim nation” must not remain confined to agitations of a few days. It also gave tips on how to plan attacks.

Titled ‘A message to the Mujahid Nation of Kashmir”, it said, “The response of the Kashmiri Muslim nation to the martyrdom of Mujahid Burhan [May Allah accept him as Shaheed] must not remain confined to agitations of a few days.”

Providing operational tips, it said, “Attack the forts of the enemies. Petrol bombs are one of the best ways to soften up the enemies and then attack them with knives and iron rods.”

We Pakistanis should support our Kashmiri brothers: Hafiz Saeed

July 14, 2016

Lahore: Jamaat-ud-Dawa ( JuD) chief Hafiz Saeed said that the ongoing protests on the Indian side of Kashmir would be intensified and warned that the deaths in the region would not be in vain.

Addressing a meet in Lahore on Tuesday, Saeed said, “This time the people in Kashmir are on streets. This protest has become a mass movement. All groups in Kashmir have united. All the wings of the Hurriyat have become one. The Muttahida Jihad Council and all other groups have come on to the same platform. Those who have died in Kashmir, their deaths will not be in vain.”

More than 30 people were killed and several others injured, with both people and security forces turning hostile in protest-related violence in the Kashmir Valley, after Kashmiris took to the streets to condemn the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Muzaffar Wani.

Saeed asserted that the people in Pakistan should support Kashmiris.

“We Pakistani should support our Kashmiri brothers. Their sweat, blood is our sweat and blood. Their way of thinking is also our way of thinking,” he said.

“We in Pakistan will intensify the movement which is taking place in Kashmir. When Pakistan join hands in this movement with Kashmir then Kashmir will become part of Pakistan,” he added.

Saeed, who is the prime accused in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack case, told people here to make the movement a national one.

“We have to take the movement to national level so that even the government of Pakistan understands the matter,” he said.

Incredible story of Muslim restaurant owner in Washington who feeds the homeless for free

14 Jul, 2016

WASHINGTON (ABC7) — On a dreary morning in Franklin Square along K Street in Northwest Washington layers of donated clothes keep the homeless warm. Finding shelter and food defines their day. Dawud Proctor knows the struggle of homelessness all too well.

“Yeah it’s tough. I see people laugh at the homeless and might look down on them but if you really look at it a lot of people are just one step away from being this way,” says Proctor.

Franklin Square is one of the many places in the nation’s capital inhabited by those without a home. It sits two blocks from two very different houses: The White House to the west and Mayur Kabab House to the east. Mayur Kabab owner Kazi Mannan came in early on this particular day.

“With every dish the magic is how much you have to stir it,” says Mannan.

He and his staff are preparing a special feast for customers at his Pakistani-Indian restaurant along K Street in Northwest Washington.

Mannan says on the menu will be, “Potato and cauliflower, chicken tandoori, naan bread, chick peas and vegetable biryani.”

But these dishes are destined for an audience that’s rarely welcome in elegant eateries. You see, for the past few months Mannan has opened his restaurant to the homeless.

Mannan says, “Sometimes they come 15-20. Sometimes nobody. We are waiting God please send somebody, you know.”

For lunch on this day nearly 20 people who have no home came in from the elements to eat. And they’re treated like any other guest expect for one key difference. They eat for free.

“Yes it’s shocking to me because I didn’t think there were brothers out there who would help support the needs of the homeless,” says Proctor.

Darren Staton, who has been homeless for a couple years, says this meal and Mannan’s gesture is a blessing from God.

“So we appreciate this guy bringing this food down here for us to eat. Sometimes on Sundays it is slow. Sometimes we got to go around and beg or we get a cup and try to make money to try to find a way to eat and survive out here,” says Staton.

Mannan responds by telling everyone in the restaurant, “You guys are the most important guests for me.”

Mannan’s boundless optimism and love of food wasn’t cultivated at a high-profile culinary institute. His desire to provide stems from a painful uncertainty that defined his childhood. Kazi Mannan grew up on a farm in a small village in Pakistan one of 10 children.

Mannan says,”We didn’t have any electricity. We didn’t have any running water. The school, believe it or not, was under the tree. My elementary tree we didn’t have a building. I study under the tree. When the really hard rain starts my teacher says go home because there is no building.”

To support his family he went to work at 12 selling ice and vegetables. The best school was four miles away. So that’s how far he walked to get a formal education. In 1996, at the age of 25, Mannan says his visa was approved so he borrowed money for a plane ticket to America. He started as a cashier, earning $3 an hour, at a gas station in one of the District’s toughest neighborhoods.

“When I arrive in America I had just $3, just $3 and I started my life with basically nothing,” says Mannan.

Hard work would alter the arc of his life. He says he worked double shifts, then multiple jobs. He saved up enough money to buy one limousine. The idea that a kid who came from nothing could one day drive the rich and powerful around in luxury inspired him even more. He says one limo turned into a fleet of vehicles. His business flourished enough that some twenty years later he opened his own restaurant.

Mannan says,”That’s called American dream. This is the only country where you say American dream.”

When we told some of his homeless patrons about Mannan’s back story they were touched.

“Wow! For real? So he kinda understands. That’s a good thing. It makes sense now. Makes a lot of sense. Wow!,” says Darren Staton.

But to fully understand Kazi Mannan you should know one more thing.

“I love to prepare this food for the homeless shelter,” says Mannan.

Every Sunday Mannan makes extra food and delivers it himself to the Georgetown Ministry Center where he serves lunch to dozens of homeless men and women. He connected a few months ago on social media with volunteers who spend Sundays dishing out hot meals to the less fortunate like Ron Verquer.

“And they make you feel like you are valued,” says Verquer.

Kazi Mannan says a skeptic recently told him if he gives away his food he’ll surely go out of business in no time. Mannan believes the more he gives away the more God will bless him.

Mannan says, “I think this is all from God because my mission is from God.”

And he says he’ll never forget what his mother told him about holding tightly to his faith in the face of despair. She said if you share even when you don’t have God will take you from darkness to light.

Before Dawud Proctor returned to his spot in Franklin Square he told us, “That’s the whole answer to life to be blessed by God and God will help you and I know he will. You just got to make the first step. He won’t do everything for you.”

Kazi Mannan tells us he hopes to one day return to Pakistan and open up empowerment centers for women and schools for children.

ISIS May Have Set Up Sleeper Cells in India: Iraqi Envoy

South Sudan's fighting not typical of Africa

Thursday, July 14, 2016

This is not an article on South Sudan, which is just as well because the conflicts there are almost fractal in their complexity.

The mini-war last weekend between the forces of President Salva Kiir and Vice-President Riek Machar, which killed more than 270 people and saw tanks, artillery and helicopter gunships used in the capital, Juba, is part of a pattern that embraces the whole country.

The four days of heavy fighting began on Friday with a disagreement between the two men's large forces of bodyguards outside State House, where they were meeting, and rapidly escalated. Nobody was surprised, because the peace deal last August, which ended a two-year civil war that killed tens of thousands across the country, was never very secure.

Last weekend was the fifth anniversary of South Sudan's independence from Sudan, but celebrations had been cancelled before the shooting started because the government couldn't afford them.

Spread of terrorism in Africa on Canada's peacekeeping radar, Harjit Sajjan says

14 Jul '16

Containing the spread of terrorism across Africa is a consideration for Canada as it mulls where best to contribute to a UN peacekeeping mission, Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan said Wednesday.

The government has yet to make up its mind on where it will send its peacekeepers, in fulfillment of a major foreign policy priority, Sajjan said. But Canada wants to have an impact wherever it deploys troops, he added, and doesn't want to send a contingent to a specific country simply for the sake of doing so.

No plans to revive peace talks with Taliban, says Afghan official

Thu Jul 14 2016

An official in ARG Presidential Palace has said there are no plans to revive peace talks with the Taliban group as efforts to bring the group have not yielded any positive result.

President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani’s spokeman Haroon Chakhansuri has told The Associated Press that a four-nation group comprising Afghanistan, Pakistan, China and the United States has no plans to meet again after previous rounds of meetings produced no results.

Chakhansuri further added “there is no set time” for another meeting of the group.

The Afghan government was expecting to participate in direct peace talks with the Taliban group earlier in March this year after the Quadrlateral Coordinatin Group started talks to revive the Afghan peace talks.

14 Jul, 2016

Berlin and Paris will push for closer military ties with EU member states, the German defense minister said, adding that the long-contended issue was let loose by UK’s vote to leave the bloc. It comes as Germany is looking for a new global role for its military.
