(salam) Last few weeks for pakistani were disturbing.what do you guys think is going to happen in a week or so? For those who dont know, There is an scholar named Tahir ul Qadri who has dual nationality of Pakistan and canada(he mostly lived in canada) is calling people towards revolution. He also tried to bring revolution few years ago in tenure of PPP government but then he compromised. He has a huge fan base here in pakistan.He runs a university,a charity organization,a religious and a political organization. He belongs to Brelvi,sunni sect. Now things are pretty serious than the long march he did previously. There was a clash few days ago between Police and supporters of this guy when Police tried to remove the barriers installed around his property in Model Town Lahore. 9 people died from bullets including a pregnant women.That sparked a huge emotion of anger. Long story short,now this guy has support of almost every major party in opposition except PPP. He says he is going to bring a revolution and Government has to go. Ruling party does not want to give him much space.so they almost jammed the whole lahore city. There is another political leader named Imran khan,who is protesting on alleged rigging in few of the constituencies. He has announced Azadi march which is going to happen on 14 August(independence day of pak,which is 15 august but who cares :D ) at federal capital Islamabad. Now the political leader and the scholar,both have teamed up against government. Looks like situation is going to be really rough in coming days. Government is using all resources on his disposal to prevent itself. Chief of Army staff General Raheel sharif has called a emergency corps commander meeting tomorrow. Shia political party MWM is also supporting the Tahir ul Qadri. They also supported PTI in general election. so yeah things are pretty exciting :D what do you think is going to happen?
Is hate for non-Sunnis being taught in today's masjids? I don't see this "hate" going on in the masjid I attend. I'm in the south (Alabama) and the masjid I attend is Sunni but there are Muslims from all backgrounds there. This weekend the masjid had a "Day of Dignity" in the park & there were Sunnis and Shias serving the homeless together: spreading dawah, brought food and the medical doctors of the masjid came out and offered medical screening to the homeless. From my eyes this is the work that muslims should be doing. Meanwhile I was in GA listening to Shaykh Tahir ul-Qadri and Shaykh Ninowy. Shaykh Ninowy is Iraqi-Syrian and lives in Georgia. He is Sunni & in the past gave this lecture on the Ahlul Bayt: http://youtu.be/QacDiZHyrzs?t=35m14s It's long but if you start @ 35:14 you will hear him talking about how the Sunni vs. Shia rivalry is intellectual terrorism and that the differences between the two is no excuse for hate, and how other Sunni scholars tried to discourage him from talking about the Ahlul Bayt. When I first started learning about Islam I did not understand the animosity between Sufis and Shias and Sunnis. In my mind it's all Islam and we are all Muslims. I'm seeing that a lot of "information" on Islamic forums is leaning more toward extremist indoctrination/Jihad recruitment. And those who hold these extremist views tend to be cut from the same cloth: mostly males, reverts or next generation immigrants, walking, young (under 30), poor/low income (don't work, underemployed and angry), lives with parents, uneducated/undereducated, unmarried They ( who ever is the system orchestrator of extremist indoctrination) apparently knows who to target. Young males who don't have anything. No independence, no job, no money, no education, no car, no woman. They present them with the greatest gift given to man: Islam. Society has rejected them from higher education and these people present them with knowledge that is greater. I can see now how brain washing these young people can be easy and profitable for their cause.
