April 17, 2022

Citizens of New Delhi have taken to the streets to condemn rampant Islamophobia across India amid a rise in anti-Muslim violence in the aftermath of Hindu-Muslim clashes.

During a peace vigil organized by citizens against hate crimes and violence targeting the Muslim minority in New Delhi on Saturday, the protesters held placards that read “No to Islamophobia” and “Muslim Lives Matter.”

Cases of violence against Muslims have been reported in at least eight states in India in recent days during the Ram Navami processions.

The protesters also shouted slogans against Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government days after Hindu-Muslim clashes erupted during a religious festival.

Indian police imposed a curfew in one town and banned gatherings of more than four people in parts of three states ruled by Modi’s Hindu nationalist party after the Sunday clashes.

Modi’s right-wing Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party has been blamed for stoking tensions between majority Hindus and Muslims in states that it rules.Citizens of New Delhi have taken to the streets to condemn rampant Islamophobia across India amid a rise in anti-Muslim violence in the aftermath of Hindu-Muslim clashes.

Modi’s right-wing Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party has been blamed for stoking tensions between majority Hindus and Muslims in states that it rules.

Nine people were arrested in India’s most populous state of Uttar Pradesh on Friday on charges of torching the home of a Muslim man who married a Hindu woman.

“We are extremely anguished at the manner in which issues related to food, dress, faith, festivals, and language are being deliberately used by sections of the ruling establishment to polarize our society,” the leaders said.

Violence against Muslims and other minorities has prevailed since the partition of the subcontinent in 1947, but the last decade has seen a dramatic rise of right-wing Hindu domination.

Based on reports by human rights groups, the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party has adopted various laws and policies that legitimize prejudice against religious minorities in recent years, in particular Muslims.

Islamist Academics and Activists Shill for Jailed Jihadists During A Recent Webinar On “Ramadan Behind Bars”

“If you are supporting our prisoners, you are supporting some of the best people on the planet,” stated Coalition for Civil Freedoms (CCF) prisoner and family support coordinator Nada Dibas during a recent webinar on “Ramadan Behind Bars.”

These “best people” — CCF’s clients — include terrorists in American prisons. Yet to Dibas and panellists like the Islamist, slavery-defending Georgetown University professor Jonathan Brown, they’re victims of America’s Islamophobia.

Brown’s branch of the dhimmitude industry is a family affair. Dibas noted that Brown, former director of Georgetown’s Saudi-founded Prince Alwaleed bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding and now Alwaleed professor of Islamic civilization, is a CCF board member. Brown, in turn, observed that his sister-in-law, Leena Al-Arian, is CCF’s executive director, an unsurprising family connection, since “CCF was actually founded in our basement,” he said. Brown’s wife, Al Jazeera senior producer Laila Al-Arian, is Leena’s sister.

At CCF’s 2010 founding, the patriarch of the Al-Arian family, Brown’s father-in-law, Sami Al-Arian, lived with him while under house arrest after his conviction for providing material support to Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorists. In 2015, the U.S. deported Al-Arian to Turkey after he pleaded guilty to supporting a terrorist organization.

CCF’s radical connections extend beyond the Brown family. Zahra Billoo, the Islamist executive director of the San Francisco chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), of which a federal judge found “ample evidence to establish” an association with Hamas, joined the panel. Islamist CCF members include CAIR’s Florida chapter, the Islamic Circle of North America, and the National Lawyers Guild, among others.

Given this radical crowd, Dibas’s claim that CCF supports “over 240 political prisoners” who are “predominately Muslim” is clearly propaganda. The federal government, she asserted, “targeted, criminally prosecuted, and imprisoned [these people] due to their political views, beliefs, cultural identity, or activism.” “We work with prisoners convicted of terrorism,” she added, while “most people don’t want to get near” this issue.

CCF board member Ashley Young’s description of her imprisoned brother, former Washington Metro system police officer Nicholas Young, showed CCF’s absurd definition of “political prisoner.” As the Counter Extremism Project has documented, in 2016 “he sent electronic gift cards worth $245 to an undercover FBI agent posing as a Syrian-based” Islamic State fighter under the pretext of funding recruiting “messaging accounts.” Earlier in 2010, Nicholas Young’s “friendship with Zachary Chesser, a Virginia man who pled guilty to attempting to provide material support to al-Shabab,” initially aroused FBI interest.

The following year in 2011, Nicholas Young traveled to Libya to fight for the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi’s dictatorship, he told law enforcement. Additionally, the Counter Extremism Project noted, Young disclosed to FBI officers “that he tortured animals as a child, was a collector of Nazi memorabilia, and dressed up as ‘Jihadi John’ for a party.” Nicholas Young also expressed support for the January 2015 Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris.

Yet in Ashley Young’s telling, brother Nicholas Young epitomized law enforcement’s use of entrapment and “completely manufactured” charges to victimize the innocent. Al-Qaeda’s 9/11 attacks produced “mass hysteria” and “keeping that fear alive” necessitated “politically motivated charges against people,” she said. “When the FBI couldn’t find the terrorists amongst us,” she added, “they started to invent them,” to which Dibas ludicrously responded, “anyone and everyone can be a target.”

Having established an atmosphere of faux innocence, Dibas introduced another panelist, the superficially friendly Ahmed Abdel Sattar, by noting that he had just ended a 20-year prison sentence. As the New York Post previously elaborated, Sattar “was an Islamist extremist who used his home as a communications hub to further the schemes of Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman, the blind Muslim cleric who masterminded the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.” Additionally, Sattar “and a co-conspirator in 2000 published a fatwa, or Islamic ruling, in Rahman’s name, calling for the killing of Jewish civilians.”

Rather than scrutinizing these obvious lies, Brown — more Islamist apologist than academic — gushed “it’s so inspiring” that Young is “really devoted” to her brother. Brown gladly accepted the veracity of CCF’s claims, just as he assumed the police brutality claims of the notoriously corrupt Black Lives Matter movement. In 2010, he did not believe that “police officers just randomly shoot black people for no reason,” he said, but BLM has since convinced him otherwise.

Given BLM’s supposed revelations of criminal justice corruption, “you really don’t have an excuse not to support CCF,” Brown said. Particularly today, “it’s so cool to be woke” and “talk about how the system is messed up,” he added, so supporting the likes of CCF means “you can use this to get street cred.” Therefore, “if you have any guts, then give money” to CCF, for otherwise “you are not a man, you are not a woman,” and “I am not impressed,” he quipped, with the additional personal note, “I respond well to shame.”

Brown pitched his support for CCF as a matter of solidarity, for “if someone gets in trouble or gets canceled,” then “as a matter of principle, I will not disassociate myself from that person.” “The system works by making that person toxic,” and therefore “you can’t let that happen,” he explained. The supreme irony, however, is that he works tirelessly to cancel “Islamophobes” like this author.

Dibas, Billoo, Young, Sattar, Brown, and their ilk are Islamist apologists masquerading as activists and scholars. Their opinions are therefore easily discounted, if not always rapidly dispatched. This whole lot and their supporting enterprises deserve anathematization, discrediting, and defunding.

Unrest In Sweden Over Far-Right Anti-Islam Rally by Stram Kurs To Burn A Qur’an, Continues

17 Apr 2022

Southern Sweden saw another night of unrest on Saturday over plans by an anti-Islam far-right political party to burn a Qur’an among other things.

Police said up to 100 mostly young people threw stones, set cars, tyres and dustbins on fire, and put up a barrier fence in the town of Landskrona after authorities moved a demonstration scheduled there by Danish party Stram Kurs to the nearby city of Malmö, about 45km (27 miles) to the south.

Kim Hild, spokesperson for police in southern Sweden, had said earlier on Saturday that police would not revoke permission for the Landskrona demonstration organised by party Stram Kurs because the free-speech threshold for doing that is very high in Sweden.

The right of the protesters “to demonstrate and speak out weighs enormously, heavily and it takes an incredible amount for this to be ignored,” Hild told Swedish news agency TT.

On Friday evening, violent clashes between demonstrators and counter-protesters erupted in the central city of Orebro ahead of Stram Kurs’ plan to burn a Qur’an there, leaving 12 police officers injured and four police vehicles set on fire.

Video footage and photos from chaotic scenes in Orebro showed burning police cars and protesters throwing stones and other objects at police officers in riot gear.

At Saturday’s demonstration in a central park in Malmö, Stram Kurs’ leader Rasmus Paludan addressed a few dozen people. A small number of counter-protesters threw stones at demonstrators and police were forced to use pepper spray to disperse them.

Paludan himself was reported to have been hit on his leg by a stone, Swedish media said. No serious injuries were reported, according to police.

Paludan, a Danish lawyer who also holds Swedish citizenship, set up Stram Kurs, or Hard Line, in 2017. It runs on an anti-immigration and anti-Islam agenda.

Rwandan Government Bans Muslim Overnight Call To Prayer Because Of Noise Pollution Laws

OSG MEDIA 

April 17, 2022

Rwanda’s Ministry of local government (MINALOC) has stated that the recent decision to ban the overnight Muslim call to prayer known as Adhan, was taken into consideration due to noise pollution raised by the public.

The practice of attaching loudspeakers to the minarets on mosques began in Asia in the 1930s and spread across the globe. Five calls are made per day, to summon the faithful for their five daily prayers.

Rwandan authorities say that residents had complained about the earliest call to prayer – which happens between 04:30 and 04:49 and lasts about two or three minutes.

“We are not happy… during Ramadan, it is adhan which tells us that it is time to start fasting, and not all Muslims in Rwanda have alarm clocks,” says a resident, Nuhu Bihibindi.

Ms. Mukamabano says the government could have told mosques to simply turn down the volume, “just like they tell bars to limit the volume on their music”.

But Sheikh Souleiman Mbarushimana, an advisor to Rwanda’s mufti, or Islamic scholar, says Muslim leaders had already discussed the matter with the government and agreed upon the decision.

“Muslims say their right to faith was violated… but the authorities have told us [the morning call to prayer] is banned for the common good,” Mr Mbarushimana says.

Farewell Lunch For The Then Pakistan Ambassador Asad Majeed Khan In Washington Triggered ‘Lettergate’ Dispute

April 17, 2022

WASHINGTON: The conversation that set off the so-called ‘Lettergate’ scandal took place on March 7 at a farewell lunch for the then Pakistan ambassador Asad Majeed Khan at his residence, which is also known as Pakistan House.

Diplomatic and official sources, who spoke to Dawn, said that although it was lunch, a note-taker also attended the meeting. The cable that Ambassador Khan later sent to Islamabad was based on the notes taken by the note-taker, who was also from the Pakistan Embassy.

US officials who attended the lunch included US Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asian Affairs Donald Lu and Deputy Assistant Secretary Lesslie C Viguerie. The Pakistani side comprised Deputy Chief of Mission Syed Naveed Bokhari and the defence attaché.

Since the March 7 lunch-meeting was held less than two weeks after the Russian aggression against Ukraine, the invasion dominated the conversation. The sources said the US side expressed its ‘disappointment’ with Pakistan’s decision to send its prime minister, Imran Khan, to Moscow the day Russia invaded Ukraine.

“They pointed out how the invasion had angered the entire American nation and explained why they thought Mr Khan should have postponed his visit,” one of the sources said.

Another source said Mr Lu hinted that “Washington believes the final decision to go ahead with the visit despite the invasion was that of Imran Khan” although some Pakistani officials had suggested postponing it.

Ambassador Khan, according to these sources, argued that it was a collective decision and that Pakistan had been trying for a Moscow visit for years. And when the invitation came, they could not turn it down or postpone it.

The Americans, however, argued that Islamabad should have also “considered Washington’s sensitiveness” on this issue before going ahead with the visit.

The sources said the conversation then drifted to the current political environment in Pakistan, and Mr Lu pointed out that Washington was keenly watching the situation and the outcome of the no-trust move against the then prime minister would impact US-Pakistan relations as well.

One source claimed Mr Lu’s arguments were “alarming and far from routine”, but he did not threaten a regime-change. The source also claimed that no one attending the meeting felt that the Americans were hatching a conspiracy to topple the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf government. “No, there’s no conspiracy. Nobody got that impression,” the source added. “But they did say the outcome will impact bilateral ties, which can be interpreted either way.”

The sources said the Americans never concealed “their disappointment” with Pakistan over Mr Khan’s Moscow visit. They claimed that Army Chief Gen Qamar Bajwa had planned to visit Washington in April, but postponed it after learning how the Americans felt about Ukraine.

“I never thought it was a US conspiracy, but it triggered certain reactions that impacted the domestic political situation in Pakistan,” another source said. “What Mr Lu said reflected what the Biden administration feels and thinks. It was very unusual. Not one bit routine.”

The source claimed that the defence attaché’s presence in the lunch-meeting, and his earlier engagement with US officials on the Ukraine issue, explained why Gen Bajwa’s comments on Ukraine “marked a significant departure” from Imran Khan’s policies on this issue.

Former prime minister Khan argued that Pakistan made a mistake by joining the West during the Cold War, it should remain neutral in the Russia-Ukraine conflict and refused to condemn Moscow’s invasion.

Addressing a seminar in Islamabad on April 2, Gen Bajwa had slammed Russia’s military attack on Ukraine, calling for immediate cessation of what he described as a “huge tragedy” inflicted on a smaller country.

On Thursday, the military’s media wing — ISPR — also dismissed Imran Khan’s allegations of a US conspiracy, although it acknowledged that Washington had used language in the lunch-meeting that amounted to interference in Pakistani affairs.

The ISPR chief pointed out the National Security Council’s meeting on this issue expressed “grave concern” at the communication from Washington, but did not use the word ‘conspiracy’.

On April 8, in his last address to the nation as prime minister, Mr. Khan reiterated his allegations that a senior US diplomat threatened a regime-change in Pakistan.

In another statement, Mr Khan also named the official — Donald Lu — who allegedly made that threat during a meeting with Ambassador Khan.

On April 10, while commenting on Mr. Khan’s claim, a US State Department spokesperson Jalina Porter said: “Let me just say very bluntly there is absolutely no truth to these allegations.”

Palottukavu fest: Ban on Muslims from entering temple precincts kicks up row

17th April 2022

By M A Rajeev Kumar

KANNUR: Close on the heels of denial of permission to Vinod Panikkar, of Karivellur, to perform poorakkali as his son had married a Muslim woman, yet another incident has kicked up a controversy at Kunhimangalam, near Payyannur, as a board was put up at the precincts of Malliyottu Palottukavu stating that entry of Muslims is prohibited during festival season. The festival at the kavu began on April 14 and will conclude on April 19. 

Though, here also DYFI, the youth organisation of CPM, has come out against the retrogressive action of temple authorities through a statement, like what they did at Karivellur, local residents say that their protest will have no impact on the outcome of the incident and the board will remain there till the end of the festival.

Islamophobia In US Public Schools: Muslim Students Face High Levels Of Islamophobic Bullying: CAIR Report

Darren Lyn 

17.04.2022

Islamophobia in US public schools is a prevalent and ongoing problem, according to a recent report by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).

Interviews with 700 Muslim students in schools in the state of California found high levels of Islamophobic bullying, harassment, and discrimination by peers and adults, including teachers.

“Muslim students of all ages have been ostracized and mistreated in the past because of their faith and perceived, yet clearly false, association with 9/11 and other acts of terrorism,” said Amr Shabaik, the civil rights managing attorney for CAIR’s California chapter, which conducted the study.

US military retracts details of attack on its Syria base, hinting insider attack

April 17, 2022

The US military has retracted its earlier claims that a base it occupies in eastern Syria was targeted by artillery or another type of projectile, now admitting that the blasts earlier this month that injured several soldiers resulted from an inside job.

It is now believed the April 7 attack was carried out by the “deliberate placement of explosive charges” by one or more individuals at an ammunition holding area and shower facility on the base, AP reported on Friday citing a statement issued Thursday by the so-called Operation Inherent Resolve command that oversees illegal US military operations in Syria and Iraq.

Its reference to the “deliberate placement” of explosive charges on the military base, however, suggested the possibility of infiltration and a lapse of base security or even an insider attack, marking a new development in the resistance against the intruding US forces in Syria.

Rwanda plan ‘against the judgment of God’, Archbishop of Canterbury says

by Henry Goodwin

2022-04-17

Boris Johnson’s plan to send asylum seekers to Rwanda does not “stand the judgment of God,” the Archbishop of Canterbury has said.

In a withering Easter sermon, the head of the Church of England – Justin Welby – said that the principle of deporting asylum seekers 4,000 miles away is akin to “subcontracting our responsibilities” and the “opposite of the nature of God”.
