Not Arabic, Muslims In This Village Pray In Kannada At The Hazrat Mahboob Subhani Dargah

Oct 31, 2021

Haveri: Muslims all over the world generally offer their prayers in Arabic language, but in Chihkka Kabbar in Haveri district, they pray in Kannada at the Hazrat Mehabob Subani Dargah.

The village, in Rattihalli taluk, has done this for about 150 years. Most of the 400 Muslim families don’t know Urdu and Arabic, so the Maulvi addresses the community in Kannada five times a day. The Muslims are proud of the local language and live in harmony with other communities in the village, which is in chief minister Basavaraj Bommai’s home district.

According to sources, in the last decade, children have started learning Urdu in school. The mosque, however, has display boards outside and inside that are in the Kannada language.

“Most Muslims don’t know Arabic and Urdu in Chikka Kabbar village so there is no point using these languages during prayer. However, previous maulvis had addressed in Kannada because it is easy to communicate with people of the community as they easily understand prayer and discourse. I have also followed the tradition,” said Mohammad Peeransab, the current maulvi.

He said that non-Muslims also listen to the Kannada prayer discourse in the village. “There is no importance in the language, the intention is in understanding the theme of the religion and importance of the prayer,” Mohammad added.

Hussensab Billalli, the chairman of the Anjuman Islam Committee, concurred with the maulvi on having prayers in Kannada. There was no use of Arabic and Urdu in the mosque during prayer because the people cannot follow a religion without understanding it. The Kannada language is easy to understand in the community, even by the unlettered, Billalli pointed out.

“People in our village live in harmony. There is no difference between Hindus and Muslims in our village. Hindus participate in our festivals and we also join our hands with Hindu ritual practices,” he said.

“Our elders three generations back had donated a three-gunta site to construct a mosque in our village and I registered the property with the Anjuman committee recently. There is no dispute in language. We easily understand their prayers and discourse because it is in our mother tongue. Here, no difference of opinion in religion exists and we live in harmony,” said Veeranagouda Patil, who has donated land to the mosque.

Blocking roads, damaging public property was totally in negation to the teachings of the holy Prophet (SAW) as he emphatically advised the Muslims to create ease and comfort for others.

Leading Ulema, religious scholars from all walks of life in an apparent reference to long march of banned Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP), said that achieving success for any cause was impossible by adopting violent means and causing discomfort to the people.

Ruet-e-Hilal Committee Chairman Maulana Abdul Khabeer Azad said holding protest was the right of everyone but creating havoc on city roads such as traffic jam, road blockage and loss to public property and life was prohibited in Islam. Acknowledging the right to protest, Azad, who is khateeb of Jamia Badshahi Masjid Lahore,urged the Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) protestors to present their demands in a way as prescribed in constitution of Islamic republic of Pakistan.

“Love and affection for the Holy Prophet (SAW) was part of our faith, and respecting each other was also advised by Holy Prophet (SAW),” he added. Khateeb,Jamia Masjid, Umer Bin al Khitab,Lahore, Maulana Zubair Ahmed Zaheer said the Holy Prophet (SAW) commanded people to create facilities for others and not to create difficulties for them.

Deputy Minister of information and culture and spokesperson of the Taliban Zabiullah Mujahid said that the international community must recognize the Taliban if they do not want to receive any threat from Afghanistan.

Zabiullah Mujahid during a press conference in Kabul on Saturday, October 30 said that the Taliban must be recognized as a responsible side.

The spokesperson of the Taliban added that they will not take any responsibility to avert threats to other countries until and unless they are recognized by the international community.

“We fought the US because they did not recognize us in the past. If the Taliban are not recognized, it will only increase problems in Afghanistan, the region and the world.” Said Mujahid.

Mujahid further added that they have completed all preconditions of their recognition and the world will recognize them one way or the other.

He asked all the countries to activate their diplomatic missions in Afghanistan and acknowledged that they will not give room for military bases for any country.

Police in the German federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia broke up an Islamist cell that was preparing a terrorist attack with axes and knives. On Thursday, 350 police officers and members of a counterterrorism unit raided and searched the apartments of five suspected young men in the district of Düren. Three members of this group are minors.

“The men are accused of plotting a violent act motivated by terrorism and using propaganda material from the Islamic State terrorist organization,” police said in a statement.

According to Der Spiegel, the police have long focused on alleged supporters of the Islamic State terrorist militia, who organized terrorist training at the end of last year. According to investigators, suspects aged 16 to 22 were practicing axe and knife attacks in a forest near Aachen. The accused, including two Germans, two men with German-Russian citizenship and one with Turkish citizenship, had apparently not implemented a specific criminal plan yet.

Indian police arrest Muslims for supporting Pakistan in T20 Cricket World Cup

By 5Pillars (RMS)

31-10-2021

Uttar Pradesh’s chief minister, Yogi Adityanath, said that three people may be charged with sedition, on top of the charges of cyberterrorism and “promoting enmity among groups,” after arrests on Wednesday.

Another leading BJP politician, federal cabinet minister Sidharth Nath Singh, told NDTV news channel that Uttar Pradesh police would take the strictest possible action against anyone for exulting in India’s defeat in last Sunday’s game in Dubai.

Three of those arrested are engineering students at Raja Balwant Singh College in Agra and are from Kashmir. They are also accused of posting messages on social media supporting Pakistan. The college has suspended them.

Meanwhile, Mohammad Shami, India’s only Muslim cricketer in the T20 team, was subjected to a vicious barrage of online abuse after India’s defeat.

India captain Virat Kohli has hit back at the ”spineless trolls” who attacked Shami’s religion, saying targeting people for their faith is ”the most pathetic thing” to do.

”There is a good reason why we are playing on the field and not some bunch of spineless people on social media that have no courage to actually speak to any individual in person,” he said.

”….Mohammad Shami has won India number of matches in the last few years and has been our primary bowler with Jasprit Bumrah when it comes to making an impact in games in Test cricket.

Activists, Students Protest in Delhi Against BJP's 'Silence' on Tripura Anti-Muslim Violence

Sumedha Pal

31-10-2021

New Delhi: Calling out the anti-Muslim violence in Tripura, citizens’ groups, activists and students on October 29, Friday, organised a protest rally in New Delhi against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government’s allegedly lackadaisical response to the law and order situation in the northeastern state.

On October 26, a mosque was ransacked and a few shops and houses were vandalised during a rally organised by right-wing groups such as the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) and the Hindu Jagran Manch in Tripura against communal violence in Bangladesh. These shops and houses reportedly belonged to Muslim families.

The Tripura Police, however, said that the law and order situation in the state is “absolutely normal” and no mosque has been burnt there. The police’s statement came two days after the communal attacks on Muslims during a rally led by Hindutva groups in Chamtilla district in Panisagar sub-division of North Tripura district.

Thousands of supporters of radical Islamist party move to Islamabad to mount pressure on PM Khan

Oct 28, 2021

LAHORE: Tens of thousands of supporters of a banned radical Islamist party in Pakistan took out a march towards Islamabad on Thursday to press the government of Prime Minister Imran Khan to release their party chief Saad Rizvi and expel the French ambassador.

The rally by members of the Tehreek-i-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP), which started after the government announced that it cannot meet its demand for the expulsion of the French ambassador, has reached Gujranwala, some 80 kms from here. Gujranwala is approximately 220 kms from Islamabad.

Life in the areas surrounding its route continues to remain disrupted as cellphone and internet services also remain suspended. Lahore's link to Rawalpindi and Islamabad has also been cut off from the GT Road.

"Police and Rangers are deployed on the route but unlike Wednesday, the law enforcers did not stop the TLP workers on the order from the top as some government functionaries have engaged its leadership in talks," a Punjab government official told PTI on Thursday.

For the time being, the government has changed its strategy in the wake of Wednesday's bloody clashes in which four policemen and as many TLP activities were killed and over 400 injured, including policemen, he said.

A top-ranked Islamic political party leader in Bangladesh expressed concerns about attacks on Muslims and said he wants to peacefully co-exist with his

“Muslims in different states in India are now scared and helpless. In this circumstance, the Indian government must arrest the extreme Hindu terrorists who attacked the Muslims and bring the miscreants to justice,” the head of the Islami Andolan Bangladesh, Mufti Syed Rezaul Karim, said in a statement late Saturday.

Citing media reports, he alleged that extremists have launched at least 27 attacks on 16 mosques and members of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) or World Hindu Council, an infamous Hindu extremist organization, set fire to three mosques and put the organization’s flag over several mosques after storming Muslims’ places of worship.

“While extremist Hindus of India are threatening to occupy Bangladesh after attacks on some Hindu temples, the Indian government has failed to take any initiative after damaging houses, shops and mosques of Muslims in Tripura and Assam states,” he alleged.

He also urged Indian authorities to immediately intensify vigilance to protect Muslims’ property, including mosques, to ensure peace and tranquility. “Otherwise, it may flare up protests across the world.”

Bodejo, Miyetti Allah leader mocks Southern govs: Anti-open grazing law exists only in the media; it can’t be implemented

30th October 2021

National President, Miyetti Allah Kautal Hore Socio-cultural Organisation, Abdullahi Bello Bodejo, has said the anti grazing laws by some states, especially in the Southern part of the country exist only in the media and could not be implemented.

Speaking with VINCENT KALU, Bodejo said the groaning over the high price of cow meat would get louder, asserting that prices would hit the rooftop in the coming months.

I have to speak on the side of the Fulani. For us, we have not had it so bad all over the country. While others are crying, the Fulani are dying. The situation is so bad. They don’t have place to graze their cattle; they don’t have hospitals, they don’t have schools.
