Pakistan: Towards insanity

Daily Times: What has happened to the minorities in Pakistan over the last few months could not be taken as spontaneous or scattered events. The burning down of temples, the instant verdict of a death sentence in Sawan Masih’s case and now the arrest of Tahir Ahmed, an Ahmedi, on the charge of desecrating the Quran indicates that a concentrated, manipulated and motivated effort is underway to create an atmosphere of intolerance and harassment against the minorities, particularly in Sindh and generally in Pakistan. Not that we are not familiar with the pattern that rages against the minorities or even at times against Muslims on charges of blasphemy. However, the rise in tension and the ensuing traction within the ranks of the clerics is disturbing to say the least. The signs indicate that Pakistan is apace towards a future that has no place for divergent religious views leave alone people from different religions and sects. Pakistan’s religious culture has always had a strong imprint of Sufism that inherently preaches tolerance, patience and congeniality.
The history of the subcontinent had been an account of coexistence between people of different religions and sects. To the Mughal kings and even those famous for their ruthlessness against non-Muslims, the idea to create a wedge of differences between communities through extreme interpretations of Islamic values was never implemented. The crux of Sufi Islam and the reason for its popularity in the hybrid ethno-religious culture of the subcontinent was its appeal that threaded Muslims, Sikhs and Hindus together. They celebrated each others’ religious events and respected others’ religious beliefs, notwithstanding the ultra-radical spoilers who could never influence the dominant discourse of tolerance within religions and cultures. Even today the tombs of Sufi saints are frequented by both Muslims and Hindus alike. They are revered by both, not only in India but also in Pakistan. But the imported imprint of Deobandi and Salafi interpretations of Islam and the official backing given to extremist elements for our adventures in Afghanistan have changed the complexion of the religious narrative. On top of all ths, Ziaul Haq’s penchant to Islamize Pakistan has resulted in a legal vacuum that wolfs down the innocent but leaves the wicked untouched.

  1. THEY WORSHIP IDOLS INSTEAD OF GOD ( ALLAH ALONE )

    They have taken their priests and their scholars ( Muslim & Bukhari etc ) for their Lords besides God QS.9:31.

    Bismilahirahmanirrahiim
    We always claim that Islam is peaceful religion and bring mercy to all mankind. Right?

    On the contrary, non Muslim and Muslim see the fact that Islam is violent religion every where on this world—from Africa continent—to Asia–to Europe.

    What is wrong?

    From my observation years and years, I come to conclusion, the root of this religious conflict is soured from the Book of Hadits, that believed as second holy book beside Holy Al Quran.

    As Muslim Scholar know that;

    1 Al Quran was created by Allah sent down to Prophet
    Allah will guarantee from falsifying by Jiin and human for ever.

    2.The book Hadits was created by men.
    What ever Scholar Muslim and Bukhari wrote in his book, have to be believed as shahee Hadits or true Hadits.

    It means Muslim Scholar has been teaching IDOLs to his students years.

    So beside believe in Allah, also believe in a Idol( Muslim, Bukhari, Hurrairah etc etc ).Right?

    Some groups follow commandment from his idols (Muslim and Bukhari) to kill apostasy, blasphemy and heresy ( Shia, Ahmadiyah, sufi, Christian, Hindu etc ) while souting–the name of “Allahu Akbar–Allahu Akbar”. Right?

    If they follow Allah alone, Allah commanded people NOT to kill Apostasy, Blasphemy, Gay-Lesbian, Hindu,and Christian etc);

    If anyone slew a person―unless it be for murder or for spreading violence in the land― it would be as if he slew the whole people: and if anyone saved a life it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people. QS 5:32.

    So commandment of Idol (Muslim, Bukhari etc and commandment of Allah is opposite.

    So those Muslim who follow Idols, become a murder, or violent Muslim etc. The act of violence is the act of evil (satan)

    Those Muslim who follows Allah Alone, become a peaceful Muslim….anti violonce.

    If we,Ahmadiyah Muslim, or Moderately educated Muslim who advocate / promote love, tolerance, compassion, forgiveness to the world. Does Muslim Ahmadiyah dare to abrogate the False Hadits Muslim and Bukhari ?

    For example;

    Anyone of you who saw heresy, apostasy, let is changing with your HANDS, if not able, let the verbal, if not able to let the heart. However, such is weak as weak faith.HR.Muslim.

    Prophet said, “If you have people who do act like the people of Lut (liwath) then kill the perpetrators.” (Narrated by Abu Daud, Tirmidhi and Ibn Majah).

    “O People! Do not desire a combat with the enemy, but pray to Allah for safety. But when you are face to face with the enemy, be steadfast and remember that Paradise lies under the shadow of SWORDS!” Then he supplicated: “O Allah! Revealer of the Book, Driver of the clouds, Vanquisher of hosts, destroy them and help us over them.”[Bukhari]

    When the end times will appear young people and bad attitude. They said word by using the word of GOD , when they had come out of Islam as an arrow from his bow slipping . Wherever you meet them , then kill them . Because real people are killed they will get a reward on the resurrection day ” HR Bukhari

    If we do not dare to abrogate these hadits, Extremist Muslim will never stop to kill Muslim Shia,Muslim Ahmadiyah, Gay-lesbian, Christian, Hindu etc every where in this world.

    To kill Muslim Shia,Ahmadiyah, Gay-lesbian etc is a commandment from their god (idol Muslim and Bukhari etc).

    May Allah give the strength to all Muslim Scholars to abrogate the false Hadits of Muslim & Bukhari etc Ameen

    All love

    Am I wrong?

  2. “Some groups follow commandment from his idols (Muslim and Bukhari) to kill apostasy, blasphemy and heresy ( Shia, Ahmadiyah, sufi, Christian, Hindu etc ) while souting–the name of “Allahu Akbar–Allahu Akbar”. Right?”

    Mr. Alatif, you claim to be an ahmadiyya Muslim but some of the things you write are quite contrary to Ahmadiyya teachings. I have no right to doubt about your Ahmadiyya authenticity but if you are a new convert I would suggest that you do a better research before attributing anything you did to the teachings of the AMJ.

    As far as Pakistans’ treatment to its non deobandi citizens are concerned I am really at a loss to explain their evil. I understand that prayer for that doomed country is a good thing nevertheless sometimes paying the price for one’s folly can also bring a decent change in the future generations. So in this respect it is my prayer that All those who are directly/indirectly responsible for the current social situation in Pakistan are seen to pay a very heavy price so that at least the relatives of those who have been persecuted live the rest of their lives with peace and dignity.

    I wish I could say that the courts and the government should bring comprehensive justice to the people, but the reality is that they are ALL culprits. So I appeal to GOD to either punish them or forgive them ALL, provided they change into decent human beings.

  3. As long as there are Muslims who are repelled by the cruel treatment of their fellow beings (be they Hindu or Christian or Ahmedya), there is hope….thank you…
