Self discovering Facebook Ban:showing “e-love” for Prophet Muhammad(saw)

In Facebook Conspiracy on May 23, 2010 at 11:50 am

By Adnan Siddiqui

Many of you would be well aware about the recent sick attempt of MollyNorrs against our Prophet Muhammad. As expected, Pakistani youth which use facebook quite religiously started condemning the event Everybody Draw Muhammad Day. They reported the page as Blasphemeous but the Jewish Administration of Facebok yet they did not remove to exercise “freedom of speech”. Though facebook always removed Anti-Holocaust pages and why not? After all mark zuckerberg is a jew and after having threats, they removed anti-Holocaust page

As expected it triggered Muslim youth on facebook. They created an anti-”draw Muhammad day page” page where they asked other Muslim users to boycott Facebook for 3 days. Many of them joined the blasphemous page as well to register their protest.

We Muslims are quite emotional and usually we treat everything with same stick. As expected, many Muslims who might not even have read Muhammad(saw) in their entire life started using abusive words against those who was ridiculing Islam. To my surprise they even used F* word against those non-Muslims. In short they were treating this a street fight where you can use any kind of lingo to express your anger. Do you think they were actually showing love for the Prophet(saw)? Offcourse not! Since when did Prophet(saw) used such tone against His enemies.

Seeing all this, I was thinking whether these Muhammad Lovers ever got chance to learn about Muhammad(saw) in their lives? The other thought which came across my mind that, though ppl like Molly Norris and Lars Virks are yet non-Muslims and have legal excuses to do all this because they don’t know about Muhammad but ask yourself, Do you actually know about your own Prophet(SAW)? No, don’t tell me you read Him Islamiat and all that, did you actually try to find out what He preaches about? Oh wait,you try to run away from Muhammad every day when you don’t read Quran, feel bored to offer Salah.

Wait!! I am not advocating you to grow your beard but tell me, when did you last time tell your other Muslim brother about Islam or to non-Muslims about your own religion? Pass it on even if it’s a single verse, these words said by my Prophet, your Prophet in last sermon but you are preaching your “Love for Muhammad” by keeping your Facebook profile associated with movie and music celebrity. YOu are more interested in dating with women yet you claim to Love Muhammad? Duh!

Tell you honestly,Muhammd(saw) would have been more pleased if you would have offered 2 rakat Nafl and would have decided to follow Islam but No, at one side you are not willing to come out of your comfort zone and yet you claim to love Muhammad?

It is as lame as if you claim to love your parents and disobey them everytime. Will others not call you stupid? That’s what those non-Muslims are doing. They have been slapping on your faces ,my face and keep telling us that that the era has arrived which was already prophesied by Muhammad when He told his companions that a day will come when Muslims would be in abundance yet they would be very weak.

I have no issue if people are prefer to ban Facebook. After all it’s their right. As long as protest is peaceful, I am all for it but personally I was not in favor of ban because for a genuine reason.

My past 8 years experience of discussion with non-Muslims taught me that not ALL non-Muslims are crackpots. Many of them get no option but to follow radicals of their society and believe in what they tell about Islam. It’s like they have no exit door. If you reach to such people, they actually listen you. The condition is, you need to be calm and having a knowledge about what are you talking about. As I wrote here how engaging with non-Muslims helped me more to learn Islam than a religious school. So I was hoping same that’s why I even joined that blasphemous page and even started Dawah with these words:

Salam(peace) to All mankind. I am a Muslim and proud to be one! I belong to a religion which cares more for mankind than the God itself that’s why Islam cares more for human rights than submitting to rituals. Islam is a religion which provides way to help others. This is why Islam rewards when someone removes the stone from road or any obstacle. Islam rewards when someone gives a smile to his parents early in the morning. Islam rewards when someone give away his meal to the needy.

I agree that there are lots of confusions about Islam;due to some lame activities by crackpots and then propaganda by media. I believe most of you re good at heart and due to lack of knowledge you consider Islam is a threat.

Would you welcome a Muslim here? I am open for discussions. Share your thoughts

As expected, many greeted me with open hearts. Few contact me to know why Muslims re so excited about Muhammad. Some wanted to learn more about Islam. There are people who were abusing and threatening those non-Muslims and stupidly and ignorantly were proving their point of view that Islam is Violent.

Is Islam under threat or not safe? Off course not because Allah(SWT) already told that He would take care of His own religion. This is why today you see that in US Islam was spread more due to non-Muslims than Muslims. Bush’s 9/11 war turned America to a “Muslim America” since people who did not know about Islam started studying Quran and many embraced Islam too so I am least bothered about it. Allah has his own ways to spread His religion. The point is, on Judgment day Allah will ask you what you did for His religion. What would you say?umm something like.. God God! you know! I read Quran 50 times in my life and performed infinite Umrahs and Hajj in life and donated millions of Rupees in form of Zakat. Do you think you impressed Allah? Off course not because.. what will you say when he will ask you whether you spread His deen and did what Muhammad said: Pass it on even if it’s a single verse.

I think we Muslims must realize that today we are ridiculing our Prophet(saw) more than non-Muslims. Allah would ask you more than those. It’s very simple. If your mom ask you to guard your little siblings in her absence and also leave a cousin or maid in home. Who got more responsibility? you or your maid or cousin to take care of your siblings? Same works with Islam. Being followers we have to be more responsible because we re Ummati of Muhammad rather than those non-Muslims. naturally Allah will get more mad on us than non-Muslims because we did not show up as a role model for outer world nor we preached Islam.

So next time when you get pumped up to show your love for Muhammad, look at yourself first whether you deserve to do that?

Swat flogging: How dajjali system works?

In Clsh of Civilizations, pakistan on April 6, 2010 at 3:28 am

A master piece by Dr. Jawwad Khan

If you ask me about working of dajjali system, i would say that it works by using three tools:
1) Deception
2) Exaggeration
3) Control.

Deception:

An important tool of the state affairs especially of super powers like USA. The implications are huge as America is always rule by war profiteers.We saw many time US officials and media telling lies coherently. There are many examples like Hiroshima, Nagasaki nuclear bombing based on Pearl Harbor attacks. We saw this whole Vietnam war was fought on a false report. In the modern days the events like 9/11,when the whole drama was staged with careful analysis and study and used for series of war.
Exaggeration:
Using all modern resources of telecommunications and making the event look horrible and terrible and creating an atmosphere necessary to make some big decisions and finally achieving goals. Make the common man believe that what is happened is the worst thing in the entire history of the nation and if not countered proper use of force ,will result in extreme degree of damage and devastation. For this purpose fear is created in the hearts and mind. Like recently we saw the use of gruesome beheading videos. Where no one could ever know the real identity of those killers.

Control:
Control the general population, their psyche, mood, way of thinking and setting some new thresholds required to achieve the goals. Setting new social standards and areas of prime importance that make people unaffiliated with state affairs and live in their own utopia. This makes the control easy and helps adopting uninterrupted and unquestioned criminal policies.

Why I am talking about dajjali system? Because toswat floggingday I found in news about the inquiry ordered by senate chairman regarding the release of fake video which  sparked a nationwide protest and anger. The  resentment was unprecedented. people protested on the streets of the big cities like Karachi and Lahore. This issue was picked by all human rights and women rights organization and used effectively. The hue and cry developed due to this incident helped Pakistan Army to launch an decisive and deadly strike against Taliban. Hundreds of people died. Millions became homeless and displaced in other parts of the country.

That video footage of alleged flogging was claimed to be captured through a mobile camera of one of spectator and later on released to the national media by NGO from the behalf of Samar minullah almost 1 year ago.

After coming out from initial shock some tried to analyze the video and observed some flaws in the whole drama.
1) The ANP spokesman Mr.Zahid Khan was the first on media to express the reservations against the authenticity of the video tape. According to him the women enjoy a much greater respect in Pakhtoonwali and this kind of incident is shocking, strange and against the pakhtoon traditions.

2) Spokesman of Taliban, Muslim Khan verified this incident.
3) Many including me believed that the video is fake and commenting on teethmaestro i said:I bet even the most powerful man can not stand and run like that after flogging.as a doctor i can tell you that she was flogged on the gluteus maximus (the muscle which play an important role in standing from lying position). Look again the way she stood up ran towards room. It is 100% fake”

4) Timing of the video was interesting because the video helped in sabotaging Swat peace deal and create an environment which made the army operation inevitable and acceptable for all Pakistanis.

Now after 1 year we discovered that video was fake. In recent development Interior Minister Rehman Malik on Tuesday said he has ordered an inquiry into media reports about a “fake” video of a girl being flogged in Swat, allegedly financed by a non-governmental organization, which surfaced just before the launch of Operation Rah-e-Rast.

According to a media report, a resident of Swat, who claimed to have “manufactured” the video, revealed he had received Rs 500,000 for doing so. It said the girl who was shown being flogged in the footage was also arrested, who revealed she had received Rs 100,000. Before the operation, an Islamabad-based NGO financed the preparation of the video, which showed Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan members publicly flogging a girl, the report quoted the resident as having said.
The questions arise from recent discoveries that:
1) What were the motive of the Samar Minullah and the NGO behind this fake video beside earning enough money?
2) Who were the prime beneficiaries of the outcomes of the video? was it Pak army or some other powers.
3) Isn’t too dangerous and risky to have a knee jerk reflexes just by watching a video on TV screen? Once this dajjali method is used successfully and can be used again.

This method (deception, exaggeration and control) is growing and evolving with the age of globalization. World has become a village. Every major and minor event in the world is pushing us in a specific direction. The direction of complete obedience and control of the people, giving the false sense of freedom and just a few social liberties. I sincerely believe that world is being prepared for the DAJJAL.

Dr. Aafia Convicted of trying to kill Americans – That’s why we hate YOU -Americans

In Dr. Aafia Corner on February 3, 2010 at 8:04 pm

NEW YORK—A U.S.-trained Pakistani scientist was convicted Wednesday of charges that she tried to kill Americans while detained in Afghanistan in 2008, shouting with raised arm as jurors left the courtroom: “This is a verdict coming from Israel, not America.”

A jury deliberated three days in federal court in Manhattan before finding Aafia Siddiqui guilty in the third week of her attempted murder trial, which she often interrupted with rambling courtroom outbursts.

After declaring the verdict came from Israel, she turned toward spectators in the packed courtroom and said: “Your anger should be directed where it belongs. I can testify to this and I have proof.”

Siddiqui, 37, was convicted of attempted murder, though the crime was not found by the jury to be premeditated. She was also convicted of armed assault, using and carrying a firearm, and assault of U.S. officers and employees.

Before her arrest, U.S. authorities had called Siddiqui an al-Qaida sympathizer. She was never charged with terrorism, but prosecutors called her a grave threat who was carrying bomb-making instructions and a list of New York City landmarks including the Statue of Liberty when she was captured.

The defendant—a spindly neuroscience specialist who trained at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Brandeis University—”is no shrinking violet,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Christopher La Vigne said in closing arguments.

“She does what she wants when she wants it,” he said. “These charges are no joke. People almost died.”

Testifying in her own defense, Siddiqui claimed she had been tortured and held in a “secret prison” before her detention. Charges that she attacked U.S. personnel who wanted to interrogate her were “crazy,” she said. “It’s just ridiculous.”

In court, Siddiqui veiled her head and face with a white scarf and often sat slumped in her chair. She openly sparred with the judge and her own lawyers, insisted she could single-handedly bring peace to the Middle East and lashed out at witnesses in tirades that got her kicked out of the courtroom.

“I was never planning a bombing! You’re lying!” she yelled while an Army captain testified.

In her closing argument, defense attorney Linda Moreno accused the prosecutors of trying to play on the jury’s fears.

“They want to scare you into convicting Aafia Siddiqui,” she said. “The defense trusts that you’re much smarter than that.”

During the two-week trial, FBI agents and U.S. soldiers testified that when they went to interrogate Siddiqui at an Afghan police station, she snatched up an unattended assault rifle and shot at them while yelling, “Death to Americans.” She was wounded by return fire but recovered and was brought to the United States to face charges attempted murder, assault and gun charges.

A chief warrant officer, who testified in uniform but did not give his name, told jurors he had set down his M4 rifle after being told Siddiqui had been restrained. He testified he was shocked when she suddenly appeared from behind a curtain wielding his M4 rifle and yelling, “Allah akbar,” Arabic for “God is great.”

“It was pretty amazing she got that thing up and squared off,” he said. “She was looking at me and aiming dead at me.”

Hearing the rifle go off, the officer said he followed his military training and pulled his pistol. Siddiqui was wrestling with an interpreter when he shot her in the stomach.

“I operated within the rules of engagement to eliminate the threat,” he said.

The defense told jurors there was no ballistic, fingerprint or other physical evidence proving the weapon was “touched by Dr. Siddiqui, let alone fired by her.”

Siddiqui testified she was shot shortly after she poked her head around a curtain to see if there was a way she might slip out of the room where she was being held. She said she was desperate to escape because she feared being returned to a secret prison.

“I wanted to get out. … I was afraid,” she said.

Verdict in Aafia Siddiqui’s case expected Wednesday

In Dr. Aafia Corner on February 3, 2010 at 12:50 pm
NEW YORK, Feb 03 (APP): A New York jury deliberated for several hours on Tuesday without reaching a verdict in the case of Pakistani neuroscientist Aafia Siddiqui, who is charged with attempted murder of FBI agents and US military personnel in Afghanistan.
The deliberations are scheduled to resume on Wednesday, at the end of which a verdict is expected. But no one could with certainty that the 12-member jury would return a verdict. Ms. Siddiqui’s case went to the jury after more than two weeks of trial in a Manhattan federal court.
She is accused of grabbing a US warrant officer’s M-4 rifle in a police station in Ghazni, Afghanistan in July 2008 and firing two shots at FBI agents and military personnel, who had gone there to interrogate her.
The prosecution alleges she emerged from behind a curtain and fire two bullets before she was shot by the chief warrants officer. Before adjourning Tuesday afternoon, the jury went over the testimonies of Ms. Siddiqui, Captain Robert Snyder of US Army, who accused her of picking an unsecured gun and firing two shots; FBI Special Agent Gordon Hurley, who was first to inspect the crime scene; and two Afghan police officers—Abdul Qadeer and Bashir.
The jurors also examined the M-4 rifle that Ms.  Siddiqui is alleged to have brandished at US personnel. Last week, Siddiqui testified she was concerned about being transferred to a “secret” prison by the US forces and was trying to slip out of the room when she was shot. “I’m telling you what I know.
I walked toward the curtain. I was shot and I was shot again. I fainted,” she said. Siddiqui’s lawyer Linda Moreno said during closing arguments Monday that the “science” supported her testimony that she didn’t touch the weapon or fire it. “Where are the bullet holes? Did the Afghanis take the bullet holes? There is no physical evidence that an M-4 rifle was touched by Dr. Aafia Siddiqui, let alone fired”, Moreno said.
Some legal experts believe that by testifying before the court against the advice of her lawyers and family, Ms. Siddiqui may have complicated her case. This was clear from the way the prosecution on Monday picked holes in her testimony, accusing her of lying planning to destroy New York City landmarks. Ms. Siddiqui vanished in Karachi with her three children on March 30, 2003.
US officials allege that she was seized on July 17, 2008 by Afghan security forces in Ghazni province and claim that documents, including formulas for explosives and chemical weapons, were found in her handbag. She has been brought to the United States to face charges of attempted murder and assault.
Siddiqui faces 20 years in prison on the attempted murder charges and life in prison on the firearms charge. However, human rights organizations have cast doubt on the accuracy of the US account of the event.

Witnesses’ accounts differ at Dr. Aafia’s trial

In Dr. Aafia Corner, I Hate USA on January 26, 2010 at 12:36 pm

By Alvis Matt

The second day of Aafia Siddiqui’s trial on attempted murder charge was marked by conflicting versions given by government witnesses of the 2008 incident in Afghanistan, with an FBI expert saying on Wednesday he found no fingerprints on the rifle that she allegedly used to fire at US interrogators there.

T. J. Fife, the FBI fingerprint expert who was put on the stand by the prosecution on the second day of Ms. Siddiqui’s trial, said he used all techniques, including the top-of-the-line laser technology to search for evidence, but found nothing on the M-4 rifle, which was produced in the court.

“There were no fingerprints on the rifle, but it is difficult to obtain them from firearms,” he added.
Fife was the last of the five prosecution witnesses who testified on Wednesday. He will be cross-examined by defence lawyers on Thursday.

Throughout Wednesday’s proceedings, the lawyers for the prosecution and defence worked to focus the jurors’ attention on their stands concerning the July 18, 2008, incident in Ghazni, Afghanistan.

In his opening statement on Tuesday, Charles Swift, the defence lawyer, had said Ms. Siddiqui didn’t fire any weapon that day. Authorities were never able to find any gunpowder residue on Ms. Siddiqui or any ballistics evidence showing the rifle had been fired or that she had used it, Swift said.

The prosecution brought in the FBI fingerprint expert in an obvious attempt to take the edge off Swift’s statement because the government witness said that firearms usually do not record the impressions. The reason he gave was that firearms have rough surface that do not retain fingerprints, with heat, humidity and sweat also contributing to erasing them.

Meanwhile, a former Afghani interpreter with US Special Forces on Wednesday appeared to contradict the version of the Ghazni shooting incident given by a US Army captain on Tuesday about the position of Ms. Siddiqui while allegedly aiming the rifle. While interpreter Ahmad Gul told the court that the Pakistani neuroscientist was standing with the gun in her hand, Capt. Robert Snyder had said that she was in kneeling position.

Gul, who now holds a Green Card, lives in the United States. Responding to Defence lawyer Linda Moreno’s question, he said that the U.S. government had sponsored him in October 2008 and he got the permanent resident status in 2009. He said he was paid all expences here until he got a job in a clothing store.

Gul also had trouble in remembering what he had said in a report to the FBI five days after the incident. He had then stated that his chief warrant officer looked behind a curtain of the room in a police station where Ms. Siddiqui was supposed to be sitting. Responding to the defence attorney’s queries, Gul said his boss never look behind the curtain. Ms. Moreno then handed him the report he had signed, to which he said it was wrong.
The interpreter said he managed to disarm Ms. Siddiqui, after she was shot in the abdomen.

The neuroscientist is alleged to have grabbed the rifle after the Special Forces officer left the weapon within her reach, according to the prosecution.

The same officer used his 9mm pistol to shoot Siddiqui after she fired two shots, prosecutors said. NO one hit in the room, but Ms. Siddiqui was wounded in the abdomen.

Shortly after the Americans gathered in the room to interview Ms. Siddiqui, Gul said Capt. Snyder’s shouted: “She’s got the gun!”

 

Gul, claiming to be standing just three feet from Ms. Sidduqi, said he lunged at her and started wrestling for the weapon. Ms. Siddiqui fired one shot before he reached the rifle, and a second after he pushed her into a wall.

Earlier, FBI agent John Jefferson, under questioning from Ms. Moreno, the defence lawyer, said he never saw Ms. Siddiqui firing the weapon even though he was in the room. He said he thought that the shots were coming from the window.

Agent Jefferson testified that he heard an M-4 rifle — which he said is distinguished when fired because of its loud pops — fired in the room, followed by two shots of lower volume.

But on cross-examination, Ms. Moreno suggested, Jefferson’s hearing might have been impaired because he was wearing a communication device.

“But you had some devices in your ear?” Ms. Moreno asked.

“Yes,” Jefferson said.

“And they remained in your ear while you were in the room?” she said.

“Correct,” he said.

The trial of Ms. Siddiqui is taking place under heavier-than-usual security. On Wednesday, a metal detector was put in place outside the 21st-floor courtroom, in addition to the ones already on the ground floor. But Judge Berman told the court not to draw any “adverse inferences” from it.

Before the start of the trial, Ms. Siddiqui, who was wearing a white scarf, told the presiding Judge, Richard Berman, that her articles in some magazines were being distorted. While nothing positive she wrote about America was ever picked up, some of her observations were taken out of to give a negative impression of her. Indeed, she is being projected as terrorist even though she has not been accused of terrorism.

Ms. Siddiqui, who was removed from the court on Tuesday after she interrupted the proceedings, agreed not to do so again. “I’m just going to be quiet, but it doesn’t mean I agree,” she said.

Ms. Siddiqui, who on Tuesday had called a witness a liar and denied that she was a terrorist, then rested her head on a table and kept it there for much of the morning’s proceedings.

Judge Berman also told jurors that the evidence presented by the government should not be taken as a proof of Ms. Siddiqui’s alleged crime. He also told them to weigh what the prosecution witnesses say about Ms. Siddiqui while quoting Afghan officials

My children were tortured : Dr Aafia

By Alvis Matt

Posted on 20 Jan 2010 at 2:52am GMT

Pakistani citizen Aafia Siddiqui has told jurors at her trial that she was held in a secret prison in Afghanistan, her children were tortured, and the case against her is a sham.

On Tuesday, Siddiqui was thrown out of the New York courtroom where her trail is being held after shouting the remarks at the jurors.

The MIT-educated neuroscientist is currently on trial, facing charges of trying to kill US soldiers and FBI agents in Afghanistan in 2008 and connections with Al-Qaeda operatives.

She was ejected from her federal court trial after her second outburst, Bloomberg reported.

“Since I’ll never get a chance to speak,” she said in the courtroom. “If you were in a secret prison, or your children were tortured…”

She insisted that she knew nothing about a plan to carry out terrorist attacks on targets in New York, The New York Daily News reported.

“Give me a little credit, this is not a list of targets of New York,” she said. “I was never planning to bomb it. You’re lying.”

Siddiqui vanished in Karachi, Pakistan with her three children on March 30, 2003. The next day it was reported in local newspapers that she had been taken into custody on terrorism charges.

US officials allege Aafia Siddiqui was seized on July 17, 2008 by Afghan security forces in Ghazni province and claim that documents, including formulas for explosives and chemical weapons, were found in her handbag.

They say that while she was being interrogated, she grabbed a US warrant officer’s M-4 rifle and fired two shots at FBI agents and military personnel but missed and that the warrant officer then fired back, hitting her in the torso.

She was brought to the United States to face charges of attempted murder and assault. Siddiqui faces 20 years in prison if convicted.

However, human rights organizations have cast doubt on the accuracy of the US account of the event.

Many political activists believe she was Prisoner 650 of the US detention facility in Bagram, Afghanistan, where they say she was tortured for five years until one day US authorities announced that they had found her in Afghanistan.
