For the ‘Mutants’ of Ahmediyat cum Liberalism

In Clsh of Civilizations, pakistan, Uncategorized on August 28, 2009 at 1:49 pm

There are two types of extremisms which are moving side by side, parallel to each other. One is well known due to the Swat issue and the behavior of Taliban, i.e., ‘Religious Extremism’. On the other hand there is Liberal Extremism”—an enormously fatal and dangerous one in its own kind.

This liberal extremism is the output of the liberal, materialistic and secular (read anti-religion) Western education system. The primary objective of this system is to produce mentally & ideologically slave generations which will not only be helpful but also become tools in spreading their own Western agendas.

This generation is definitely good in English but unaware of Muslim values and culture. It seems that insulting and abusing religious people is a fashion for them.

After reading several English newspaper articles and internet blogs, I have noticed the following stereotype aproaches with minute differences whenever these liberal extremists are challenged:

I am an expert of ‘Pakistan History’.

I have God gifted understanding of Jinnah’s views the knowledge of others about Quaid-e-Azam is doubtful.

 • I have all the rights whatever I want to write but YOU are not allowed to disagree with me.

I have the right to use whatever abusive language about YOU because you deserve it.

 • I am a certified patriotic and YOU are an enemy of the country since maulvis opposed Jinnah before Partition.

 • I am open minded, liberal, enlightened and YOU are closed minded, backward Mullah

I am champion of secularism and YOU are a religious fascist

 • I am at peak of intellectuality and YOU have even no intelligence.

 • I know everything and YOU know nothing.

• I am an authority on all subjects if YOU dare challenge me then you are an idiot.

 • If an Ahmadi officer dies in Swat Operation then he is a hero. For the several Muslim soldiers who got martyred, it was simply their duty.

 • Irshad Manji (a lesbian), Asra Noamani (a lady having son without wedlock), Ayan Hirsi Ali (an atheist –co-producer & writer of film Fitna), Amina Wadud (who lead the mixed gender prayers drama) are their icons whereas Dr. Israr Ahmed and Jamaat-e-Islami people are criminals and can’t be tolerated at any blog.

I am are reading and observing the above again and again from liberal & Ahmadi mouthpieces for the last few years and the fact is that now I am sick and tired of all these bhashans. Liberals and Ahmadies are living in their own utopia and fool’s paradise.

They have no understanding of common Pakistanis’ problems. They always want to raise non-issues for their own vested interests and want to malign Pakistan’s image internationally.

What do you think what are the real issues of common Pakistanis, Blasphemy laws? Hudood Ordinance? Religious extremism?

No sir, a common Pakistani is facing the problems of day by day increasing Inflation and price hike, law & order, less salaries, lack of education, discrimination in education system, political instability, US intervention in Pakistani politics and state affairs, etc.

 The problems which are portrayed by these so called “Liberals” are their own “mental blocks”. No common Pakistani has any concern with them. In the latest IRI survey religious extremism not even amongst the top 5 problems faced by the common Pakistanis. But these drum beaters always shout like a crow.


These liberals are short sighted people and just want to present and discuss what they want. They don’t give a damn about what others think and believe. They have no interest in common Pakistanis’ miseries, troubles and problems. They have their own agenda.

This “Mummy Daddy – Burger Group” tries to present themselves as intellectuals. Their hidden agenda is promoting vulgarity amongst Pakistani and Muslim youth. The evident example is www.naseeb.com

where they developed the villages of Gays & Lesbians – Shame on them! This website is a mutation of so-called Liberalism and Ahmadiyat.

They have zero level tolerance against criticism. The use of abusive and indecent language is common by these liberal fascists and interestingly they believe that their opponents deserve this language, which shows their sick state of mind.

In the name of human rights they become Ahmadi mouthpieces. They even used Gojra incident in favor of Ahmadies. They portray that every practicing Muslim wants to kill Ahmadies but the fact is that every Muslim is in favor of protecting their rights under the Constitution of Pakistan and unanimously approved resolution of the national assembly in 1974, where they are protected as minority.

If someone wants to call them Muslim on the name of human rights then it’s not acceptable under the Constitution and for us, the people of Pakistan. Ahmadies are clearly non-Muslims but we believe that they should enjoy each and every right as a minority.

The mutation of Ahmadiyat and Liberalism is also evident from some blogs which could not be considered as mere ideological garbage centers. In these blogs and websites they promote all those values and norms which are against the teachings of Islam. Even some “poor couple”  raised the questions like why Pig is haram? Why one should keep a beard when Gillette exists.

 They want to prove themselves as champions of “Jinnah’s vision of Pakistan as an inclusive, liberal and secular state” but totally ignore the Quaid-e-Azam view of Pakistan become a test lab of Islam. See Quaid-e-Azam views about relationship of Pakistan & Islam in my following post


My submission to these mutants of Ahmediyat and Liberalism is that now kindly stop calling your opponents as terrorists, mullahs and fitnas. There is a need to develop an atmosphere of tolerance. We can live and tolerate each other in a civilized way. Both sides can visit each other blogs and post healthy comments and criticism.

﴿عالم اسلام میں پیدا شدہ کشمکش دین و مادیت کے درمیان ایک طبقے کا طرز فکر﴾

یہ کس نے الاپا ہے یہاں نغمئہ الہام؟

یہ کس نے سنایا ہمیں اسلام کا پیغام؟

                        پکڑو انھیں! یہ کون ہیں سرگشتئہ اوہام!

                        __________انہیں دار چڑھا دو !

فرسودہ سی اک بات نکالی ہے انہوں نے

مذہب میں سیاست بھی ملالی ہے انہوں نے

کیوں رنگ میں بھنگ آکے یہ ڈالی ہے انہوں نے

                        ہر قول پہ تعریض ہے، ہر فعل پہ الزام !

                        __________انہیں دار چڑھا دو !

ہر چھلنی میں چھانے گئے افکار ہمارے

سوچھا جوں میں پھٹکے گئے کردار ہمارے

سوکانٹوں پہ تولے گئے”شہکار”ہمارے

عزت کے گریبان ہوئے تار ہمارے

کیوں بزم میں کھولے گئے اسرار ہمارے

                        ہم لوگوں کی توہین جو کرتے ہیں سرعام!

                        __________انہیں دار چڑھا دو !

یہ لوگ ہیں مست مئے پندار تقدس!

کندھوں پر لیے پھرتے ہیں انبار تقدس!

جیسے کہ یہی لوگ ہوں معیار تقدس!

سوڈھنگ سے کرتے ہیں یہ اظہار تقدس!

                        جو بات یہ کرتے ہیں ہمیں لگتی ہے دشنام!

                        __________انہیں دار چڑھا دو !

جیسے کہ بہت اچھے مسلمان نہیں ہم!

جیسے کہ قتیل غم ایمان نہیں ہم!

جیسے کہ پیمبر﴿ص﴾کے ثناخوان نہیں ہم!

                        تنقید کریں لوگ تو ہم ہوتے ہیں بدنام

                        __________انہیں دار چڑھا دو !

یوں دور نبوت کو ہمیں یاد دلانا

قرآں سے ہمیں چھانٹ کے آیات سنانا

خورشید کو یوں لے کے دئیے تارے دکھانا

                        سودائی ہیں یہ لوگ ! یہ سودا ہے بڑا خام!

                        __________انہیں دار چڑھا دو !

جیسے کہ میں کچھ حق تعبیر نہیں ہے

اپنے لیے یاں منصب تفسیر نہیں ہے

جیسے کوئی گنجائش تغییر نہیں ہے

اسلام ہے ملاؤں کی جاگیر نہیں ہے

                        گستاخ سناتے ہیں ہمیں معنئ احکام!

                        __________انہیں دار چڑھا دو !

یہ اپنی کسی بات پہ”آمیں”نہیں کہتے

آمیں نہ سہی! ایسے میں چپ بھی نہیں رہتے

جو آتی ہیں کہ جاتے ہیں ہر ظلم کو سہتے

پھر پیروجواں سارے اسی رومیں ہیں بہتے

                        اس طرح سے ہوجاتی ہے فتنے کی وبا عام

                        __________انہیں دار چڑھا دو !

دراصل یہ ہم لوگوں کی تکفیر ہے لوگو!

خود اپنے سوا اوروں کی تحقیر ہے لوگو!

ملت کی تباہی کی یہ تدبیر ہے لوگو!

                        یہ جن کی بھی تدبیر ہے ، کردوا سے ناکام!

                        __________انہیں دار چڑھا دو !

ہم لوگ قدم آگے بڑھائیں تو گناہی!

کلچہ کی کوئی بزم سجائیں تو گنا ہی!

مینا کو پیالوں پہ جھکائیں تو گناہی!

ناچیں تو خطار ہیں، گائیں تو گناہی!

“لیڈیز”کو میدان میں لائیں تو گناہی!

جمہور کو تہذیب سکھائیں تو گناہی!

مذہب سے سیاست کو چھڑائیں تو گناہی

اسلام پہ گر وعظ سنائیں تو گناہی

جو دل میں ہے وہ لب پہ جو لائیں تو گناہی

                        کم ظرف ہے کس درجہ یہ ملاؤں کا اسلام!

تہذیب میں اغیار کے ہم رنگ سہی ہم

ماحول کے فتنوں سے ہم آہنگ سہی ہم

                        یہ لوگ سمجھتے نہیں کیوں رتبہ حکام!

                        __________انہیں دار چڑھا دو !

بس بزم سیاست میں ہے اسلام خطرناک

یہ نام خطرناک ہے ! یہ نام خطر ناک

اس نام سے ہوتا ہوتو کام خطرناک

افسانوں میں ،شعروں میں حکایات میں اسلام

تعلیم و تمدن کے ادارات میں اسلام

داخل ہوا کلچر کی عمارات میں اسلام

آپہنچا محل تک کے مضافات میں اسلام

گھسنے کو ہے محفوظ مقامات میں اسلام

                        اب روک لو اسلام کے “دیوانوں”کا اقدام

Anti America Move of Bloggers

In America on August 21, 2009 at 1:06 pm

Source: http://talkhaaba.wordpress.com/2009/08/20/bloggers-to-start-go-america-go-campaign/

A newly formed blogger network of Pakistani Bloggers namely Union of Patriotic Bloggers for Sovereign Pakistan (UPBSP) has started Go America Go campaign which aims at confining US to its diplomatic role guaranteed under the international law. The other aim of the campaign is to compel Pakistani rulers to act as sovereign Pakistan dreamed by Alama Muhammad Iqbal and hundreds of thousands of Muslims who had given sacrifices with the hope that their next generation will live in a sovereign and independent Muslim State.

It is impetrative to mention some of the criminal activities of world Terrorist No-1 and rogue state, United State of America.


The top most and recent of which  is the notorious act of recognizing Balochistan as an independent state by assigning a separate checklist to Balochistan against the “Country of citizenship” column of Immigration Form for non US national. This is the infamous effort of changing the dream of Free Baluchistan explained in Blood Border into reality as also pointed out by Awab Alvi.

Ahmed Qureshi’s website provides much stuff about the Blackwater’s activities in Peshawar. The construction of US Castle in Islamabad and suspicious activities of US marines near the brigade headquarters of Pakistan’s Special Operation Task Force (SOTF) in Turbilla are well exposed by Saleem Shehzad in Asia times online. 

We have no objection if US embassy in Islamabad and its consulates in Karachi, Lahore and Peshawar work in the frame work of International Law. However, unlawful activities in the name of the so-called war on terror and expanding relationships are unacceptable and will be resisted through peaceful struggle which may also culminate in the end of the present regime.

We also urge the present government to act as the real government and not as agent of US. We

assure that the patriotic youth will stand by our government and army if they resisted to the US expansionistic designs.

The schedule for rallies and demonstrations will be announced shortly.

Any Pakistani Blogger can join the network by simply showing his consent through email at upbspakistan@gmail.com

Please send your resentments under subject “Go America Go” at the following address.

An Open letter to Mr. Raza Rumi about usage of indecent language at PTH

In pakistan, Uncategorized on August 19, 2009 at 8:01 am

Raza rumiDear Raza Rumi,

You are an educated, well mannered & visionary person, According to your About, you claim that you believe on “revive the culture of debate, pluralism and tolerance.”. But truth is bitter & different, we completely failed to find anything  at PTH which we can relate to your claim.

 Contrary to your claim we are continuously observing  frequent usage of abusive & indecent language, harsh behavior, insulting attitude, lack of tolerance & absolute lacking of ethics & violation of moral practices at Pak Tea House.

Your whole philosophy of debate & tolerance has been drained into flush by Ahmadi extremists. They are destroying & damaging the image of your website. By using abusive language they are repeating the history when Mr. Ghulam Ahmad Qadiyani used the same bad language for his opponents.

Apparently, it also seems that now PTH has been converted into a sectarian promotional web portal. Every second post is representing the Ahmadi point of view.

I believe that many women also visit your website & there are some words which are supposed to be abusive &  never to be used by any decent person in presence of ladies. But here at PTH we are looking at the frequent usage of these third rated vocabularies by your honorable friend. Just think, what message these ladies will carry for you & your website.

At Pakistaniat, Dr. Adil Najam has set some rules for comments (Although here also most of the time we don’t see the practice of these rules, but at least he has defined the rules of the game). pAKISTANIAT Please see below what’s happening at PAK TEA HOUSE. Mr Yasser Latif Hamdani is doing the same job  at PTH which has been done by Gorbachev in UUSR. It means you should search for the “Enemy within” . The most ridiculous joke is that YLH is  defining the rules of “Editing” at PTH.

1Now, lets see is he applying the same rules upon himself ? 🙂  


Lets see another Master piece of indecent language,


What we observed on daily basis that your web portal has been turn into sectarian portal & become involved in Ahmadi religious extremism. YLH is using third class, uncivilized & street language about Elders, see the prove


YLH is really schizophranic & used-to to EDIT all comments which Exposed his tall claims & lack of knowledge. See few proves here



Your website visiters are also getting upset due to his attitude. see


Another visiter of PTH shouted, read


Dear Raza ! We have warned you that your efforts have been destroyed & hijacked by Ahmadies. They are even using most indecent , vulgar, abusive words of  third class society at your website.  They have turned & using your website for their religious preachings.

Kindly be careful & be aware of the “Enemies within” .



قبر اقبال سے آرہی تھی صدا

پھول لے کر گیا آیا روتا ہوا،Iqbal 2

بات ایسی ہے کہنے کا یارا نہیں،

قبرِ اقبال سے آرہی تھی صدا،

یہ چمن مجھ کو آدھا گوارا نہیں۔

شہرِ ماتم تھا اقبال کا مقبرہ،

تھے عدم کے مسافر بھی آئے ہوئے،Iqbal 3

خوں میں لت پت کھڑے تھے لیاقت علی،

روحِ قائد بھی سر کو جھکائے ہوئے،

کہہ رہے تھے سبھی کیا غضب ہوگیا،

یہ تصّور تو ہر گز ہمارا نہیں۔

سرنگوں تھا قبر پہ مینارِ وطن،Iqbal 4

کہہ رہا تھا کہ اے تاج دارِ وطن،

آج کے نوجواں کو بھلا کیا خبر،

کیسے قائم ہوا یہ حصارِ وطن،

جس کی خاطر کٹے قوم کے مرد و زن،
اُن کی تصویر ہے یہ مینارہ نہیں۔

کچھ اسیرانِ گلشن تھے حاضر وہاں،

کچھ سیاسی محاشے بھی موجود تھے،

چاند تارے کہ پرچم میں لپٹے ہوئے،

چاند تاروں کے لاشے بھی موجود تھے،Iqbal

میرا ہنسنا تو پہلے ہی اک جرم تھا،

میرا رونا بھی ان کو گوارا نہیں۔

کیا فسانہ کہوں ماضی و حال کا،

شیر تھا میں بھی اک ارضِ بنگال کا،

شرق سے غرب تک میری پرواز تھی،

ایک شاہیں تھا میں ذہنِ اقبال کا،

ایک بازو پہ اڑتا ہوں میں آج کل،

دوسرا دشمنوں کو گوارا نہیں۔

یوں تو ہونے کو گھر ہے، سلامت رہے،

کھینچ دی گھر میں دیوار اغیار نے،Iqbal 5

ایک تھے جو کبھی آج دو ہوگئے،

ٹکڑے کر ڈالے دشمن کی تلوار نے،

دھڑ بھی دو ہوگئے در بھی دو ہوگئے،

جیسے کوئی بھی رشتہ ہمارا نہیں۔

قبر اقبال سے آرہی تھی صدا

یہ چمن مجھ کو آدھا گوارا نہیں۔
