How the Prophet Muhammad, pbuh, changed the Condition of Women: #3 by Kaukab Siddique

The Prophet, pbuh, accepted ONE woman's witness in a crucial matter in spite of opposition by a man. Some people incorrectly think that One woman's witness is not acceptable in Islam. Not true:
"Uqba bin Harith narrates: I had married a woman but a Black woman came and said that 'I have breastfed both of you as children.' I Said to the Prophet, pbuh, I had married such and such woman but this Black woman said that she has fed both of us, and she is a liar. The Prophet, pbuh, turned his face away. I again approached [him] and said: she is a liar. The Prophet, pbuh, said: How can you keep your wife when she [the Black woman] says, she breastfed both of you. Let her go."
[Hadith in Sahih of Bukhari, kitab-un-nikah.]

Thus in a matter as serious as the annulment of a marriage, Islam accepts ONE WOMAN's witness. Let none say otherwise. This was at a time when most of the world believed that women are chattel or have no souls.


Palestine, O Palestine:

Ever since the elections which gave vistory to Hamas, Israeli forces have been entering Palestinian towns and murdering activists of the Islamic Jihad movement. Before the elections, the Israelis similarly eliminated most of the Hamas leadership and then allowed the elections to be held.

In the most recent Israeli attack, the Israelis smashed the walls of a prison with tanks in Jericho and took away prisoners whom they accuse of killing an Israeli minister several years back. These are from a secularist group.
British and U.S. monitors at the prison conveniently withdrew to let the Israelis have their way. Evidently the Palestinians are defenseless and unable to stop the Israelis by conventional means.

The Israeli attitude towards non-Jews was displayed recently when a couple of Jews desecrated an important Christian Church in Palestine. Plans are also underway to undermine the Al-Aqsa masjid.


Scholarly Critics of Jewish Version of World War II deserve your Help: Freedom of Expression is at Stake.
by Kaukab Siddique

The Jewish International terrorist system has had the following scholars imprisoned:
1. David Irving. ["Great" Britain]
2. Ernest Zundel. [Canada]
3. Germar Rudolf [Germany]
4. Siegfried Verbecke. [Belgium]

These scholars are truly fighting for the freedom of expression which is essential to human development. They are challenging the Jewish version of the Second World War. Their power is such that the Jewish elites dare not let them have a public forum. They could not stop these untiring researchers. Now they have gone to the extreme of getting these non-violent writers/researchers/scholars imprisoned on charges of "thought crimes." In other words, the Jews are now so drunk with power, they want the right to control human thought even in research work.

By helping the families of these scholars, you will support their struggle for free expression and real history. As these unusual people break the stranglehold Jewish elites have on European countries, they are fighting the fight which helps the forces of Islam.

Unless the European support for Israeli/Jewish victim status is broken, the Europeans will continue to give open-ended support to the terrorist entity known as Israel.

Important International News. From our Media Monitors. Correction is always welcome. [With brief New Trend analysis.]

SUDAN:

March 17, 2006: Democratic Party leader Nancy Pelosi carried out a lengthy tirade against Sudan's role in Darfur at a Washington "think tank" known as Center for National Policy. She threw around the word "genocide" as if it is a fact, without any evidence whatsoever.

She also proclaimed that a big rally for Darfur will be held in Washington on April 30.

New Trend's analysis is that the grounds are being prepared for a major move against Sudan. Pelosi and the Democrats are the B team of Israel. While Bush carries out the official policy of the Zionists, the Democrats prepare the unofficial policy.

Sudan, Africa's biggest country, with steady oil development, and relatively independent and Islamic policies, is a major problem for the Zionists. First, the slavery story was fed by the Zionists to America's African-American communities. That story turned out to be a fabrication. Now we have Darfur.

The key question is: Who armed the rebel groups in Darfur who are the cause of the conflict?


IRAN and U.S. Covert Friendship: [New Trend was the only one to get it right.]

Most people were fooled by the U.S.-Iranian smoke screen over the nuclear issue. New Trend was the only one to point out that at the ground level, the two are cooperating. In fact, Iran is the most effective Muslim force the U.S. can use to infiltrate Muslim countries and specifically to counter the "Wahhabi" threat.
["Wahhabi" means anyone who focuses only on Qur'an and Hadith and sees Jihad as a central aspect of Islam.]

On March 16, 2006 Iran offered to work with the U.S. to create a stable government in Baghdad. [See Associated Press and CNN.] On March 17, the U.S. reciprocated by accepting the Iranian offer and stated that the "nuclear issue is a separate issue." [Associated Press, MSNBC, etc.]


IRAQ:
MAJOR NEW MILITARY OPERATION: "Liberating" Iraq from Iraqis?

On March 16, 2006, the U.S. launched a big military operation against 3 villages in a ten square mile sector north of Samara. Fifty helicopters were used to ferry 650 U.S. troops and 800 Iraqi [Shi'ite] mercenaries to the target area, led by 200 armored vehicles. Large explosions were heard from the target area.

On March 17, it seemed that the Islamic resistance has evaded the attackers. The U.S. said 41 "suspects" had been detained but of these 10 were released. On the second day, it appears that the new operation is being seen as a military exercise to train the Shi'te mercenaries.
[This is somewhat like the "vietnamization" process in the war in Indo-China.]

SUCH ATTACKS VIOLATE INTERNATIONAL LAW:

The occupation of Iraq was a blatant act of aggression in violation of international law. The continuing military operations inside a Muslim country, aimed at the decimation of Iraqi populations opposed to the occupation, puts the U.S. in the position of international pariah.

CIVILIANS ARE MAIN VICTIMS of U.S. AIR FORCE:

According to the Associated Press [AP] [report published in the Philadelphia Inquirer March 16], 11 iraqi civilians were killed in a U.S. air strike on a home near Balad, 50 miles north of Baghdad. The U.S. claimed that only four were killed, "a man, two women and a child" and that an al-Qaeda suspect was captured in the helicopter-tank attack.

However, "AP photographs showed the bodies of two men, five children, and four other covered figures arriving at the hospital accompanied by grief-stricken relatives. The victims were covered in dust with bits of rubble tangled in their hair."

The report goes on to say that 9 the victims were from one family and two were visitors. The head of the family, Faez Khalaf, was killed. His brother Ahmed said: " The dead family was not part of the resistance. They were women and children. The Americans have promised us a better life but we get only death."

SADDAM HUSSAIN: The Lion of Iraq Roars Again:

March 15: Speaking from a court installed by the occupation forces, the President of Iraq, Saddam Hussain, called on the Iraqi people to unite and to wage a Jihad against the occupation forces. He condemned the bombing of the Samara Shrine as the "strange and horrid" act of the enemies of Iraq to disunite the people. The Los Angeles Times has published a few excerpts of the mujahid President's words as follows:

" O Iraqis, in your resistance to the invasion by the Americans and Zionists and their allies, you were great. You were great in my eyes and you remain so." ..." But now the criminals who came on the excuse of weapons of mass destruction, use their tanks to rule the Iraqi people under the slogan of democracy."

The puppet judge first tried to shout down President Hussain and accused him of killing "innocent people." The President's superb reply: "Just yesterday 80 people were killed in Baghdad. Were they not innocent?"

The flabbergasted judge shut off the audio system and later adjourned till next month. From prison, Saddam is a threat to the forces of Imperialism and Zionism.

[New Trend's analysis is that Saddam Hussain is in fact the prisoner of Israel, International Jews and the Neo-cons of America supported by Iran. The Jews always saw Saddam as their enemy. Wolfowitz saw him as pure evil, Hitler incarnate. The Muslim world was misled by Iranian propaganda against Saddam. Some naive Muslims were so impressed by American power that they thought that Saddam must be working for America! otherwise they would have killed him if they wanted to. America is like god for these conspiracy theorists. Only later it came out that the U.S. tried to kill him 33 times but failed. This is the first Arab ruler in post-colonial history who stood up to a world power and then LITERALLY went underground to continue guerrilla warfare for 9 months before he was betrayed and captured. He distributed weapons and ammo all over the country to ensure that protracted guerrilla resistance would continue.]


Lt. General Peter Chiarelli's Press Conference:

March 17, 2006. CNN boradcast General Chiarelli's press conference. It began with his report on the U.S. offensive north of Samara. Later in the conference some important nuances came out. He tried to minimize the attacks on Sunni mosques after the Samara Shrine explosion. He claimed that "only" 81 Sunni mosques were attacked" [not 100 plus], and that of these, only two were destroyed, while some had medium damage and some only had bullet holes.

Also, the General was asked point blank about rumors of Iranian "revolutionary guards" operating in Iraq. The General successfully evaded giving a clear answer.


SLAUGHTER WAS CARRIED OUT at ORDERS of SHi'ITE LEADERS

According to the Baghdad morgue sources, nearly 1300 people were murdered during the curfew imposed by the Shi'ite U.S.-installed "government" in Baghdad folllowing the explosion at the Samara Shrine.

Shi'ites in Iraq do not carry out activities without the orders of their religious leadership, such as Sistani. There is a report that Shaikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi has blamed the Shi'ite leadership for the slaughter.

Shi'ite death squads are at work, carrying out executions every night.

The Shi'ite leadership did not protest when the U.S. hit mosques in Fallujah and then blew up mosques in 5 western cities. The Shi'ites were silent when Fallujah was being attacked during the night of lailatul Qadr. Observers say that Shi'ite leaders, instead of calling for an inquiry into the Samara Shrine explosion, used it as an excuse to slaughter hundreds of Sunnis and to attack more than 100 mosques. Islamic observers say that the Shi'ites have betrayed the Muslim world.

[New Trend comment: If any reader has the text of al-Qaradawi's comment, please send it to us.]


War Continues in Iraq:

Fighting between the Islamic resistance and U.S. forces continues. The Pentagon says the U.S. has had 2312 troops killed in Iraq by March 15. The media have a new policy. They no longer cover actions in which U.S. troops are killed. A few days back, an Abrams tank, America's biggest was set on fire in Baghdad by the mujahideen. U.S. media gave a TWO SECOND coverage to it.


10-year old Pakistani girl's case
U.S.-Installed Kabul Regime is a Criminal Institution. Pakistani human Rights Activist Accuses Afghan Government Officials of Kidnaping and Sale of Little Pakistani Girls

[The following excerpts are from a report issued by a non-political group. Mr. Burney asks Gen. Musharraf for help. He is certainly not trying to score points against the corrupt Afghan rulers installed by the U.S. Is it a surprise that the people want the Taliban to return and save them from such atrocities? -Ed]

KARACHI: The internationally renowned anti human trafficking and human rights organization - Ansar Burney Trust International ľ has reported the kidnapping of a 10 year old Pakistani girl from Karachi by an Afghan national, who has taken her to Afghanistan and is now demanding a ransom for her release.

Hina alias Rani, a 10 year old innocent girl from Karachi, Pakistan, was kidnapped by Shahbaz Khan, who trafficked her to Afghanistan with the intention of collecting a ransom for her release. Shahbaz Khan was an Afghan national who earlier ran a local shop in Karachi.

The Chairman of Ansar Burney Trust International and Pakistan's most renowned human rights and anti human trafficking activist, Ansar Burney said that Shahbaz Khan is just one of the growing numbers of such Afghan traffickers in Pakistan today. Mr. Burney reports a growing trend amongst criminal elements in the Afghan government and amongst its people of the trafficking of persons.

"Afghanistan is a country runs by warlords and drug barons, who are now also in the business of trafficking of children and young girls. These same criminal elements, many of whom are in the Afghan government itself, are now killing many of the victims for the sale of their body organs in the international market". Ansar Burney said.

Ansar Burney Trust International is a human rights organization that has specialized in the field of anti-trafficking of persons. In this regard, Ansar Burney, Chairman of the Trust has been declared an International Hero and the Ansar Burney Trust has been declared as an International Best Practice by the US State Department and Condoleezza Rice in 2005. Ansar Burney Trust is also the same organization that successfully convinced the governments of several Middle Eastern countries to ban the use of underage children working on modern day slavery as child camel jockeys; and the efforts of Ansar Burney Trust have resulted in the return of well over a thousand underage children back to their respective countries.

According to Ansar Burney Trust, on 10th of December 2004, a girl Hina alias Rani (10) was missing from Manzoor Colony in Jamshed Town Karachi. Later on 15th of December 2004, the father of the girl lodged an FIR no: 253/04 at Baluch Colony and accused Shahbaz Khan, an Afghan national who worked in a shop in the area, of the kidnapping of his daughter.

The father of the girl received phone calls from the captors in Afghanistan demanding ransom for the release of Hina. Shahbaz, who made the phone call, informed the father of the kidnapping of the girl and stated that she is now in Cutwaz, Maseet in Afghanistan. He rang from satellite phone no: 00 88 21688857577.

The Ansar Burney Trust reports that as the days go by, the condition of the parents of Hina is deteriorating more and more.

For a few years now, the Ansar Burney Trust International has been reporting on the involvement of Afghan Government officials in the trafficking of children and young girls to and from Afghanistan. Visits by Trust members to Afghanistan on humanitarian missions uncovered markets where women were being sold like animals. On complaints to local authorities, Trust members were told to forget what they saw. The Ansar Burney Trust has also reported these serious and shocking human rights violations to the Afghan Embassy in Islamabad, yet to date, no action has been taken.

"In fact, trafficking in Afghanistan has turned into a new way to make money. These warlords, who till yesterday were known throughout the world as criminals, are now in the Afghan Government itself and are using their new powers to ruin the lives of innocent children and girls for their own benefits". Ansar Burney said.

The Ansar Burney Trust reports that persons are being abducted from several regional countries from where they are taken to Afghanistan. Here, under the protection of the Afghanistan government, these trafficked victims are sold. Children mostly end up working as child camel jockeys in the Middle East, or along with trafficked adults have their body organs removed for sale in the international market.


Amnesty International Report
Pakistani Dissident [U.S. nationality] Kidnaped and "disappeared" by Musharraf's Forces

US national Dr Safdar Sarki, who is the head of a political party campaigning for the rights of the Sindhi ethnic group, was abducted on 24 February by men alleged to be members of the security forces. He is in grave danger of torture, which is routinely used on political activists and detainees who are held incommunicado. The authorities have denied having him in custody, and it is feared that he may have "disappeared".

A group of 16 men in civilian clothes, at least one of whom was allegedly recognised as a senior police officer by eyewitnesses, reportedly took Dr Sarki from his apartment in the Gulistan-i-Jauhar area of Karachi, between 2 and 3pm. Witnesses apparently saw him being bundled into a van, "blindfolded and bleeding". There are also reports that his apartment was ransacked, and his laptop computer, passport and other items were taken.

Dr Sarki is the Secretary General of a political party campaigning for the rights of Sindhi people in Pakistan, Jeay Sindh Qaumi Mahaz (JSQM). Members of JSQM and the World Sindhi Congress have filed a habeas corpus petition with the Sindh High Court. No charges are known to have been filed against him, and the authorities have not acknowledged having him in custody.

The Constitution of Pakistan states that "No person shall be deprived of life and liberty save in accordance with law" (Article 9). Under Article 10, every detainee must be brought before a magistrate within 24 hours of arrest. The detention of Dr Sarki, if carried out by the security forces, is a clear violation of these requirements.

BACKGROUND INFORMATION

The province of Sindh is in the south-east of Pakistan and shares a border with India. Sindh is largely desert, and is often susceptible to drought. Members of the Sindhi community, who originate from this region, have historically campaigned for better access to resources, especially water, which they feel remains in short supply due to the construction of dams along the Indus River that deprive Sindh of its fair share of water. This in turn impacts on the livelihood of Sindhis, who remain largely agricultural. The JSQM is one of the smaller political party campaigning for the rights of Sindhis.

RECOMMENDED ACTION: Please send appeals to arrive as quickly as possible, in English or your own language:
- expressing concern for the safety of Dr Safdar Sarki, who was abducted on 24 February, by men alleged to be police officers;
- calling on the authorities to reveal immediately where and in whose custody Dr Safdar Sarki is being held;
- expressing fears for his safety and asking the authorities to ensure that Dr Safdar Sarki is not tortured or otherwise ill- treated;
- urging the authorities to release Dr Safdar Sarki immediately and unconditionally, if he is in the custody, or else charged with a recognizably criminal offence;
- if he is to be charged, urging the authorities to ensure that Dr Safdar Sarki is treated strictly in accordance with law, and given immediate and regular access to a lawyer of his choice and regular contact with his family.
