  1. Suicide bomb in Kabul Shia Mosque

    Suicide bomb in Kabul Shia mosque kills dozens http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-41699320
  2. Asslamoalaikum, Just to make the Shia leadership and Shia population of an emerging media threat for them in Pakistan. Wesal Tv is creating religious/sectarian hatred against Shia Muslims in Pakistan but do not you worry PEMRA is sleeping.
  3. I am having a discussion In Shia, Muslim, Multifaith Discussion Group [https://www.facebook.com/groups/928589737209147/] in relation to Iran and the situation in Kashmir. All are welcome to join and state their points. I have asked a Press Tv journalist, and am in the midst of asking another journalist that both may have different sides (as requested because the person was blaming Iran said I am bias in supporting the enemy of Muslims [India]). This is the news that I have gathered so far and this was the status (please correct me if I am wrong): One of the comments on this status were: JazakAllah kheir for your contribution.
  4. Salaamu alaykum everyone, Please check out this new series that absolutely destroys all these anti-Islam YouTube atheists who think true Muslims are ISIS terrorists. If you like the video, please upvote it on YouTube + share on social media because the atheists are rushing to downvote them without watching them because they know they are getting exposed. Please also share your thoughts below in the thread:
  5. I hear a lot of shias saying that Sunni Scholars were very violent people and were sinilar to terrorists. However once I looked up the shia perspective on Jihad its very violent as well. Al Allamah Al Hilli states: It is compulsory to wage Jihad on the jews and christians until the pay Jizya or convert or die, and compulsory on the rest to convert ot die. This is with the presence of the Imam. (Tadhkirat Al Fuqaha vol.9 pg.15) Now some people whom I have spoken to have stated that fighting non-muslims is only after the call to islam, which proves the truth of islam. While all shia scholars believe that the call to islam is co pulsory before fighting, only a few believe its in the form of destroying misconceptions of islam and proving islam to non-muslims. In fact in Riyadh Al-Masail it just states that the call to islam is only when you say: I call you to Allah and his religion...etc... And the shia scholars never say that the Imam is prohibited from waging war on innocent people. In fact they say it is wajib for him to wage war each year! They beleive the Mahdi is a terrorist! So shias should say: We condemn ISIS and the ancient Shia Scholars for terrorism!

  7. Caricatures and Islam

    Asalamu Ailakum, There has something that has been bothering me for quite some time about Muslims in general. Which is about all the stories where when some Western cartoonist decided that they want to draw a caricature to make fun of the prophet Muhammad (pbh) and then Muslims all around the world go insane over it. To the point where they want to kill this person and some times hold signs where they want his or her blood. Its just like with Charlie Hebdo who got shot and killed along with six other cartoonists for the cartoons they made of the prophet Muhammad (pbh). Why do Muslims have to go to such violent extents to try and defend their prophet when some one makes fun of them. Its like the infamous book The Satanic verses which discussed three verses that are said to be spoken out of the prophet's toungue but not form Allah which makes them false and the whole Muslim world was in upheavel because of it. So many violent demonstrations happened because of it, the West and middle eastern relationships were getting worse, Ayotallah Khomeni himself issued a fatwa to assassinate the man who wrote the book and other associated with it who were actually killed. Now I'm sure that most of you don't agree with what these Muslims did but I ask as to why does it happen in the first place. Christians barely do anything about it (maybe since they have no choice since they have already lost their momentum in the west and just have to accept it if they want more followers) but we have to go to the point as to kill these people for making fun of our religion when they in fact do the same thing about every other one. perhaps we should react peacufully through demonstrations or just confront that what they are saying is wrong since these people are trying to address some issues about islam through animation instead of words so that it can catch our eye and we can discuss how to deal with it.
  8. So, i want to perform a social experiment. I want to gather as much ridiculous Wahabi Fatwas as possible that we see online. And trust me i have seen some really out of this world and totally just crazy, crazy fatwas by these Wahabi Thugs. The only condition is that they have to be in video format and if possible with English translations for all of us to enjoy the monkey show. #5291 - Saudi Cleric Ali Al-Malki: West Tampers with Burgers, Whiskey to Induce Birth of Girls among Muslims (Archival) http://www.memritv.org/clip/en/5291.htm - This idiot read an article in China, never mentions the articles name, no source, who wrote it, who translated it, what exactly was mentioned in article but is willing to testify in front of God on day of judgement that since he read it in an article it must be true. I mean i am lost with words to be able to describe the shallowness of the intellect of this man and these are men who declare us Kafir and pray for us in the mosques to die and rot in hell.
  9. Dear All - Salam Alaikum, Please view and share this video reviewing some of the acts of aggression inflicted around the world by the terrorist group ISIS which in no way represents Islam. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TbLa70XOD0g
  10. They have another excuse against Shias now. Perhaps they can also tell us what Parachinar Shias have anything to do with the Syrian conflict. http://www.dawn.com/news/1226275/sectarian-terror-revisits-parachinar
  11. This is an open letter from Numerous Sunni Ulemah to Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi declaring him as Kharji and the actions of this satanic army to be totally against Islam; I was actually amazed to read the hadith of Imam Ali (KAW) from Sunni narrations in the end where Imam has so eloquently described these Khwarij. http://www.lettertobaghdadi.com/ There is an executive Summary but then there is detailed explanation. A mush read for all if I could recommend. You can also Google Letter to Al Baghdadi and get to the subject matter.
  12. Numerous and ever growing number of Sunni Ulemah are declaring these Khwarij as what they actually are, "DOGS OF HELL" as Nabi (pbuh&hf) called them. They and all those who declared allegiance to them and their mini me's are all going to hell as per these Sunni Ulemah. Following is the link to an open letter written to Baghdadi by Sunni Ulemah declaring all his actions to be Un Islamic and sinful. Read it yourself; http://www.lettertobaghdadi.com/ Or simply Google " an open letter to Al-Baghdadi". you can download the entire letter as well for the website.
  13. Hypocritical U.s. Policies

    I found these two headlines together on CNN (attached). It's so blatantly two-faced that it's almost laughable Goes to show you what 'arming rebels' winds up to.
  14. We knew the military was preparing for the eventual showdown. A few hours ago the army spokesman announced the start of an unprecedented massive operation against the Taliban and Al-Qaidah hideouts in North Waziristan. Operaton 'Azb launched. ('Azb being the sword of the Prophet that he used during the battle of Badr - this I'm hearing the TV channels say) http://tribune.com.pk/story/722202/army-launches-operation-in-north-waziristan/ Now, extremist Talibans have a lot of support among the some sections of Pakistani society, in particular middle class trading/merchant classes and madarassah-going people and their mentoring networks. But unlike in Iraq and the rest of the Middle East, the pro or anti standpoints aren't divided along sectarian lines. Of course, all Shias support the all-out operation, and so do non-Muslim minorities, but so do the masses of ordinary Sunnis (this matters a lot). Even Sunni Islamic parties which aren't of the Wahhabist persuasion are supporting the operation. I just heard Sarwat Qadri, the head of one of the largest Sunni parties, to pray for the complete annihilation of Taliban khawarij.
  15. First of all I would like to clarify that I have no intention of attacking Islam. I am a Christian from the ME with many many Muslim friends, my remarks should be viewed as constructive criticism if you like. Without any doubt most religious texts preceding enlightenment contain a wide range of acts that we may consider now outdated to use a mild language. Both the Bible and the Quran contain explicit directions to killing, looting, enslaving... etc. This was just the way people lived. However those texts in the Bible lost their importance in the Jewish and Christian traditions. It is what Philip Jenkins describes as "religious dimentia", we just choose to pretend these verses did not exist, and you will never hear a preacher in any mainstream Christian or Jewish denomination speak of killing or hurting others. In Islam however the violent verses are pushed to prominence by still revered Ulama such as Ibn Taymiya and his disciples. The idea of killing others in the name of God is still very relevant among religious Sunni, I have seen in my eyes how a "normal" 20-something Muslim transform into a raging fanatic after a couple of visit to the local mosque during Ramadan. Admittedly, Shias are less prone to be exposed to such extreme ideas. However they still form a relative minority of the overall Muslim population, and they tend to react with similar violence and use the same hate instilling verses the Sunnis use when fighting back.
  16. Truth slips out but is forcefully put back into the mouth. No noise please. Full here: http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-29528482
  17. Too late, the sponsors of ideology find they have made a monster Having spent billions, the Wahhabists of Saudi Arabia and Qatar are finding that money can't buy loyalty It seemed like a good idea at the time. Thanks to the immediacy of television, innocent civilians in Syria were writhing from gas attacks before our eyes, with the blame laid on their own government. Yet despite a red line having been crossed by this use of chemical weapons, the international community decided against air strikes on the Assad regime. Instead we encouraged two oil-rich Arab states, Qatar and Saudi Arabia, to continue arming rebel groups to oust the ruthless dictator in Damascus. Now, thanks to those weapons, one of the groups has grown into the Frankenstein's monster of the so-called Islamic State whose brutal fighters have swept through Syria and Iraq, crucifying and beheading like a deadly inhuman tide. Saudi Arabia has been a major source of financing to rebel and terrorist organisations since the 1970s, thanks to the amount it has spent on spreading its puritan version of Islam, developed by Mohammed Abdul Wahhab in the 18th century. The US State Department has estimated that over the past four decades Riyadh has invested more than $10bn (£6bn) into charitable foundations in an attempt to replace mainstream Sunni Islam with the harsh intolerance of its Wahhabism. EU intelligence experts estimate that 15 to 20 per cent of this has been diverted to al-Qa'ida and other violent jihadists. The only other official Wahhabi country is Saudi's Gulf neighbour Qatar, which is, per capita, the richest country in the world. It likes to paint itself as a more liberal and open version of the Muslim sect. Its newest and biggest mosque is named after Wahhab, but this is the fun, football-loving version. The Qataris are Barcelona's shirt sponsors, the owners of Paris St-Germain and, albeit amid allegations of dodgy financial footwork, will host the 2022 World Cup – to which, to the horror of their Saudi neighbours, women will be admitted. In Qatar, unlike Saudi, women are allowed to drive and travel alone. Westerners can eat pork and drink alcohol. There is no religious police force or powerful class of clerics to enforce morality. Qatar's Al Jazeera television network stands in contrast with the region's state-controlled media, and the Qataris are investing in the West, including the Shard, Harrods and big chunks of Sainsbury's and the London Stock Exchange. But that is not the crucial difference. Where the Saudis tend to support restrictive strong-man regimes like their own across the Arab world, the Qataris, throughout the Arab Spring, have backed grassroots Islamists such as the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. The tiny country has given $200m to Hamas, which is constantly firing low-grade rockets from Gaza into Israel. It is more open-minded towards the Shia Muslims of Iran and Hezbollah in Lebanon, whom the Saudis see as enemies. It even has good relations with the Taliban. And it has been the biggest funder of the Syrian rebels, with sources in Doha estimating it has spent as much as $3bn in Syria alone – 70 military cargo flights were sent in the past two years – in an attempt to develop networks of loyalty among rebels and set the stage for Qatari influence in a post-Assad era. Riyadh sees its tiny neighbour – "300 people and a TV channel", as one Saudi prince dismissively said – as a troublesome and dangerous gadfly. The result of all this is that Qatar and Saudi have channelled funds, arms and salaries to different groups in Syria. Until last year they were creating rival military alliances and structures. But their efforts at discrimination have been in vain. On the ground the rebel groups have been porous, with personnel switching to whichever was the best supplied. Fighters grew their beards or shaved them off to fit the ideology of the latest supplier. Many moved to whichever group was having most success on the battlefield. Key Qataris and Saudis felt it didn't matter as long as the result was the fall of Assad. But eventually two of the most extreme groups began to dominate, and eventually one of them, Jabhat al-Nusra, lost dominance to the other, Isis – the ruthless and potent force which has declared itself the Islamic State. Only towards the end have the funders realised the error of their strategy. The Qatar government has stemmed the flow of funds. At first it believed it could change the ideology of those it funded once the war against Assad was over. But now it realises it was creating a sleeping monster, as the Saudis had done when they financed the Taliban to fight the Soviets in the 1980s. In April, the Saudis sacked the head of their intelligence services, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, who had been responsible for the details of arming the Syrian rebels. His blunders led to the massive empowerment of the kind of grassroots Islamism which is the greatest threat to the Saudi claim to be the leader of global Islam because of its vast wealth and its custodianship of the holy city of Mecca. They have left it too late. The genie is out of the bottle. Some funds continue to flow from wealthy Qatari individuals and from conservative Saudi preachers collecting funds through their television shows. But the terrorists of the Islamic State, who were earning $8m a month from a Syrian gas field where they have established robust logistical lines, have added a further $1m a day from the half dozen Iraqi oilfields they have seized. Worse still, the conflict in Iraq has solidified into religiously defined ethnic identity lines. As Washington has now realised, the Islamic State will have to be stopped militarily. But real progress to re-civilise the cradle of civilisation which was Mesopotamia will require countries such as Saudi Arabia and Qatar – as well as the West, Iran, Israel and Syria – to make some hard decisions about the hierarchy of evil and where their greatest enemy lies. http://www.independent.co.uk/voices/comment/too-late-the-sponsors-of-ideology-find-they-have-made-a-monster-9687723.html
  18. Dahiya Doctrine

    I just came accross this. It's a strategy in which Israel deliberately targets civilians and civilian infastructure which they implemented in the 2006 Lebanon war. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dahiya_doctrine "The first public announcement of the doctrine was made by General Gadi Eizenkot, commander of the IDF's northern front, in October 2008. He said that what happened in the Dahiya (also transliterated as Dahiyeh and Dahieh) quarter of Beirut in 2006 would, "happen in every village from which shots were fired in the direction of Israel. We will wield disproportionate power against [them] and cause immense damage and destruction. From our perspective, these are military bases. [...] This isn't a suggestion. It's a plan that has already been authorized. [...] Harming the population is the only means of restraining Nasrallah."[3][4] Noting that Dahiya was the Shiite quarter in Beirut that was razed by the Israeli Air Force during the Second Lebanon War, Israeli journalist Yaron London wrote in 2008 that the doctrine, "will become entrenched in our security discourse."[2]
  19. News confirmed: Paki Army exporting Armaments and Salafi Shia killers to Syria. Worst part, its going to line the pockets of a few generals and a few political families and would not have any triclle down economic benefit to the cursed land of mass called Pakistan. http://www.dw.de/is-pakistan-aiding-syrian-rebels/a-17528187 http://www.dailytimes.com.pk/islamabad/01-Apr-2014/senate-concerned-over-change-in-policy-on-syria http://www.nation.com.pk/national/31-Mar-2014/arms-supply-to-syrian-rebels-to-damage-pakistan-more-us-expert http://www.brecorder.com/general-news/172/1168385/ There are unconfirmed reports circulating around Islamabad inner circles on almost 100,000 Paki Salafi terrorists being exported to Syria, Iraq, and Yemen to create more destabilization in Shia dominated regions. I wonder when would the payback hit the GCC nations? September 2014 maybe?
  20. Here is an article showing the likes of Imran Khan and his bearded friends their ugly, hypocritical, contorted faces. Good reason he didn't win the national poll last year, or Pakistan would already have become an emirate with Mullah Omar as its defence minister. To put things in context, a famous journalist Raza Rumi who hosts a talk show on an anti-Taliban TV channel was attacked a couple of days ago for speaking out against Takfiri terrorism and the oppression of minorities. Luckily he survived the attack but his driver was killed. On another occasion, a Christian man accused of blasphemy was sentenced to death by a court. It's the same case in the wake of which a mob came crashing into the Joseph Christian Colony (Lahore) and burned down 100+ houses, reacting nothing but only to hearsay. Read full HERE
  21. So the terror export deal is sealed. Pakis sold it cheap this time. Paki government recently received the 1st installment of the $3 billon deal with Saudi government to ship battle hardened Takfiri Talibans to Syria. The terror man power will be shipped along with the paki made anti-tank and anti-air launch pads. Although a very bad news for Syrians and resistance there but also a sure shot doom and gloom for Pakistan too as the blow back would reach Pakistan this time which is already sandwiched between three of the BRIIC nations. Would Syria be able to counter this new waves of trained fighters? How far the Paki terror exports would take the Syrian 'revolution'? Of late these Paki Takfiris have been slaughtering defenseless men, women, and children; how would they fare against the revved up Syrian Arab Army and it's Shia allies? Would Pakistan be able to counter the anti-takfiri political forces with deep pocket allies in its immediate neighbors? Would Pakistan become the new Syria with Takfiris on the receiving end? http://www.ibtimes.com/sunni-side-saudi-arabia-seeking-acquire-arms-pakistan-supply-syrian-rebels-1557572 http://www.voanews.com/content/saudi-pakistan-military-ties-getting-stronger/1855116.html http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/03/13/us-pakistan-saudi-idUSBREA2C13G20140313
  22. So the House of Saud is stockpiling weapons. Check. Saudi Arabia's Prince Bandar bin Sultan, financing/weaponizing his growing army of mercenaries in the Levant. Check. And the House of Saud is up to something with its ally Pakistan. Check. The House of Saud is trying to amass as many Pakistani "advisers" as possible to train its paid goons in Syria. The official Pakistani non-denial denial is that they won't be sending their army to Syria. But in a remix of Afghanistan during the 1980s jihad, a bunch of seasoned "advisers" will more than suffice. Former paki spy chief was recently given a key job at Saudi "health ministry"! Until recently, every leadership of every hardcore Islamist gang on the planet shared three traits: they studied in Saudi Arabia; they were financed by Saudi sources (public or private); and they reached their "maturity" in Afghanistan. Now with Syria, the jihadi landscape is getting more diversified. http://www.atimes.com/atimes/Middle_East/MID-03-210214.html http://www.thenews.com.pk/Todays-News-13-28614-Pak-Saudi-defence-cooperation-agreed Comments!
