"Harsh Truths" - 18 March, 2015 / 27 Jumada Al-Awwal, 1436

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

In the name of ALLAH, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

– 18 March, 2015 / 27 Jumada Al-Awwal, 1436

WARNING: Do not take them personally – We all need to improve & rise in Sha ALLAH!


English newspapers in Pakistan should write "burnt alive" explicitly instead of using words like "killed" or "lynched" or "torched" with reference to the two innocent men who were burnt alive by local Christian mob. The readers internationally should know exactly what has happened.

The mob should not have lost cool and burnt two people like that. Chaudry Nisar says that there were no lynchings by the mobs when Masjids and Imam Bargaahs have been attacked so many times in Pakistan, including on Jumm'ah day.

Culprits from the mob responsible or burning the two men alive should be immediately arrested and awarded death penalty apart from the terrorists who attacked the church. DEATH PENALTY AFTER CAREFUL BUT SPEEDY TRIALS IS NECESSARY!!


Most of the so-called educated Pakistanis (education is not about gaining degrees and good jobs alone) do not visit Masjids in Pakistan to offer their "regular prayers" yet they are very vocal about condemning Madressahs and Maulvis. They think by dumping all their sins on Madressahs, Mullahs and Maulvis they will be entitled to a ticket to paradise where 72 HOORS are waiting for them.

It is agreed that there should be some principles and regulations but what to do with certain mindsets in Pakistan who love to use the label of Maulvi for practicing Muslims and degrade all Maulvis with their words while they themselves engage in all kinds of haraam-khori, please don't mind my language but this is reality.

The educated segments don't recite Qur'an with proper Qur'anic recitation (tajweed) and can't memorize Qur'an by heart. So the madressah elements have a monopoly at the moment. To beat that monopoly, they should make the necessary efforts also otherwise they should stop condemning them.

Condemning Madressahs and Maulvis to absolve themselves from all sins has been an age-old practice of the "so-called" educated segment in Pakistan, it's not a new phenomenon. It is a truth also  though that many Islamic institutions don't exactly have angels sitting there.

But the trend to malign Islamic institutions has risen after 9/11 due to association of Islam with terrorism by the imperial powers, where in fact we ourselves invited the bogus war on terror inside our borders in 2003. Let’s try to focus on ourselves also as to where we stand as good Muslims and good human beings. If we are not fair in our approach, then we are NOT good human beings even.

We all need to improve and not just blame the Islamic institutions. They do have certain hold over Islamic knowledge and teachings which we severely lack.


TTP and ISIS are terrorist groups funded by imperial powers but Afghan Taliban, Hamas and Hezbollah are RESISTANCE GROUPS fighting just wars of freedom. Afghan Taliban, Hamas and Hezbollah are NOT doing beheadings or killings of innocent people as opposed to TTP and ISIS.
