Hardline Pakistani Generals Planning Martial Law on Excuse of
"Islamic Militancy" of Jamia Hafsa-Lal Masjid
May 9, 2007: New Trend did a follow up interview with Abdur Rasheed Ghazi, brother of Maulana Abdul Aziz, who is supporting the struggle of the Islamic young women of Jamia Hafsa. The main points Ghazi sahib made are as follows:
Our sources have uncovered a plot by the hardline generals supporting
Musharraf to impose martial law on Pakistan.
The regime is very concerned that its last support constituency has been
eroded by Musharraf's humiliation of the Chief Justice [CJ] of Pakistan.
If the generals crack down to stop the demonstrations in support of the
CJ, it will damage Mush's support in the Western world.
However, if the generals crack down on the excuse that "Islamic
militancy" has emerged in Islamabad itself, that will resonate very well
in Washington and London.
Lal Masjid- Jamia Hafsa are very clear in that we are not looking for
"clerical" rule [or "mullah rule" as the regime puts it]. Anyone with
TAQWA [God-conscious behavior] will be acceptable to us.
We are peaceful and will continue to use peaceful means.
We are not looking for any positions or privileges in the power structure.
It is clear that Musharraf's regime has failed to do anything for the
people of Pakistan. More military rule is not the answer.
We are following strictly peaceful means of struggle. However, if the
regime uses military force o crush us, it could unleash the forces of
armed resistance. Pushed to the limit, the people of Islam will fight
back. Surrender is not part of our thinking.
No Islamic group opposes us. They all know that our cause is just.
However, some of them do not agree with our methodology. That is not a
problem for us.
Jamaat-e-Islami is very quiet but Qazi Hussain Ahmed, leader of JI, has
supported us in his personal capacity.
Ejazul Haq's attempt to bring a ruling against the women of Jamia Hafsa
from the Imam of the Ka'aba will fail, because we will ask the Imam of
the Ka'aba to rule on the regime of Musharraf and on the regime's moves
Lal Masjid's web site can be read by viewers outside Pakistan. It has
some English articles though most are in Urdu. Good insights into the
struggle in Pakistan. Go to:
1. Looting in the Middle of Tragedy
The town of Greensburg in Kansas was wiped out by a tornado with winds
of 200 miles per hour. While the area was enveloped in mourning, some
people were looting the homes which had been smashed. The looters were

2. DEMOCRACY, SHAMOCRACY:
May 7, 2007: According to an MSNBC poll and other polls, President Bush's
support has dropped to 28% mostly owing to public rejection of his Iraq
May 8, 2007: The Bush administration announced that it will be sending
35,000 more troops to Iraq in September 2007.
3. FBI Claims Six Muslims were planning to attack Fort Dix!
May 8: As has been its style in previous cases, the FBI announced with
great fanfare that it has arrested radical Muslims who were planning to
attack the U.S. military base at Ft. Dix in New Jersey. Four of them
are Albanian, undocumented, one Jordanian and one Turkish.
As usual the lick spittle Muslim groups, bootlickers of the U.S. regime,
went into convulsions of gratitude to their masters in the White House,
thanking the Master Race for having nipped the plot in the bud. The
media called in Steve Emerson, Walid Phares and Glenn Beck to do their
usual tawdry dance of denigration and shallow pontification about the
danger the U.S. faces from Islamic radicals.
Any thinking person would ask:
How can SIX MEN be a great danger to a U.S. military base full of hundreds
of highly trained, heavily armed troops, backed by helicopters and the
U.S. air force. The idea that six poorly trained men [actually untrained
men] are a danger to an entire military base is laughable. Only Zionist
Jews can think up such possibilities: for them unarmed Palestinian
children are a threat to the heavily armed terrorist entity known as
Were these six men idiots that they would ask a total stranger where they
could buy AK-47s as the FBI claims?
At least the British and the Canadians, when they arrested Muslims, had
stories of "fertilizer" stashed in some place or the other by the
"terrorists." Here the story tellers didn't even plant anything lethal
on the suspects.
Part of the FBI story is that one of the Albanians went to a store to
get his "jihadi" video converted to a DVD. The store keeper saw there
was UBL and "jihadi screams" on the video. He informed the FBI and they
planted an informant on the accused.
The media, the FBI and CAIR [FBI's "Muslim" affiliate] all conveniently
forgot that under U.S. law, a person is innocent until proven guilty
beyond a reasonable doubt. [Not that one is guilty until proven innocent.]

Cindy Sheehan & Kaukab Siddique live :The "On With Leon Show"
May 5, 2007. Dr. Wilmer Leon, an independent broadcaster, interviewed
Cindy Sheehan and Kaukab Siddique, live, for half an hour each on
XM Radio, which is heard all over the U.S.
Mrs. Cindy Sheehan "The Peace Mom," with the Camp Casey Peace
Institute will lead the "Mother of all Marches" on Day after Mother's
Day, Washington, Monday May 14. The time for being polite to our
war-mongering politicians and organizations which support them is over,
she said. They are marching against a doomsday administration whose
defining characteristic is a dirty, scorched-Earth partisanship at
Cindy declared: "We mothers have to stand up and put our bodies on the
line for peace and humanity. We must look into the best parts of
ourselves that make us mothers willing to care for and protect all
children of the world, not just our own. We need to access our hearts
and souls to lead from a place of compassion and love not from war/fear
mongering, hatred and disgraceful threats and use of bullying force."
Dr. Siddique was questioned by Dr. Leon about the situation in
Afghanistan and Pakistan. He made the following points:
The Taliban put an end to poppy production when they were in power.
It was a major blow for the narcotics traffic worth countless millions of
dollars. After Karzai was installed by the U.S.,the "war lords" linked to
the U.S. have made poppy and narcotics, Afghanistan's biggest export.
With the upsurge of the Taliban, this whole business is in jeopardy. If
the Taliban win, the war lords will be out of business. The drug lords
want the U.S. to stop the Taliban from winning.
Big business wants to bring a pipeline all the way from Central Asia to
Pakistan and India ACROSS AFGHANISTAN. It would destroy the Afghan
environment and undermine Afghan culture. Again the Taliban upsurge
has put these huge profits the multinationals want to garner in jeopardy.
With the emerging Taliban victory, the multinational corporations want the
U.S. to send major military forces to Afghanistan to stop the Islamic
The Taliban have taken over the biggest Afghan provinces of Helmand ,
Oruzgan and Zabul. They also have night time control of Khost, Kunar and
The Taliban have the support of the majority of the Afghan people who are
Pashtun. They are waging classical guerrilla warfare. Mao Tse Tung might
have admired their style.
The U.S. has blundered big time by inducting NATO forces into Afghanistan.
Where the crack U.S. 82nd airborne division could not defeat the wily
Taliban, the NATO forces have no chance. Canadian and British troops have
faced several defeats and are floundering around the mountainsides,
sometimes unable to find the Taliban for weeks.
NATO has no right to be in Afghanistan. Its presence there is a violation
of international law and an affront to the world of Islam. These European
troops are seen as crusaders by the Muslims.
In PAKISTAN, the biggest event in recent months has ben the emergence of
uncompromising but peaceful Islamic women [Jamia Hafsa] and Islamic men
[Lal masjid] right in General Musharraf's backyard.
These Islamic women have exposed the General's hatred for Islam and the
deep immorality and sexual corruption which permeates the Musharraf
regime and Pakistani power structure.
Musharraf's regime has been cornered owing to his attempt to neutralize
the Judiciary and to crush the forces of Islam. Westernized Pakistanis,
silent till now have been energized by the attack on the Chief Justice.
The U.S. still wants Musharraf to continue as its agent but is also
preparing Ms. Benazir Bhutto to take over in case the General is toppled.

RE: Letters about Saddam: New Trend Educates the Most Prejudiced
Salaam dear brother,
I must say that though my knowledge of the affairs of Saddam regime is
pretty scant, you have brought more clarification on this for me. I
really appreciate your fairness, bravery and humility in the way you
answer everyone who, like me, know little of the state of Islam in the
world, before they attentively read New Trend (NT). The fact that you
not only publish the articles of these brothers, who inshallah will
somehow see the truth, but you also take the time to humbly answer
their questions is proof of the genuineness and sincerity in your
effort to spread truth.
As for the last brother, who questions your competence in English
language, I want him to know that the world literature course you teach
at Lincoln University is one of the best-taught, analysis-oriented
literature classes I have yet taken. Also if that brother could read
he would have seen that you have a Ph.D in English.
I was humbled by the fact that in your response to his mediocre doubts
of your abilities, you did not attempt to prove to him your prowess in
English, but you gave him the glaring, undisputed evidence to defend
your point not your ego. It takes a lot to do this.
Also I want to point out that there is no published magazine, journal,
newspaper in the world that i know of that PUBLISHES THEIR OWN CRITICISM
whether by their peers or those under them. I want every NT reader to
pay particular attention to this hence they take their time to analyze,
examine and digest what you have presented without the bias of fame,
fortune or publicity especially by the American media with its history
And like you implied, if all the Zionists including the American media
is praising an entity, it is proof that an investigation of such an
entity's affairs need to be carried out.
More grease to your elbow brother. Have a nice day and please keep
educating us with you nonbiased analyses of occurrences. This may be
our only source of untainted information that still exists.
Saddam Hussain Executed Armed Rebels + Siraj Wahhaj's $2,000,000 and his
As'Salaamu Alaikum. I enjoy reading your magazine. While I too don't agree
with you sometimes, but I really like the way you write and your reply to
some of these Muslims who claim to be on the haq but are off the
hook! Any Muslim that supports the kaafirs against another Muslim needs
to reevaluate his Islam, sit under a scholar and learn this deen
more. In every Muslim country when a group of rebels rise up and attempt
to over throw the government that is treason and executable by death. So
what Saddam did was correct and every other government has done the same.
I don't see anyone trying to execute the King in Bahrain when he executed
some Shiites for trying to over throw his government about 10 years ago.
They did it in Saudi many years ago and the brothers were executed, even
some stupid Americans who simply didn't know any better.
As for Imam Siraj Wahhaj you were right on point. Has everyone forgotten
about the 2 million dollars he raised at Madison Square Garden several
years ago to build a new Masjid in Brooklyn? If you see the Masjid now,
it looks worse then it did when he first bought the place in the early
80's. I know I was there. I admired Siraj back in the day, because he was
a strong Sunni Muslim and very charismatic. His khutbahs were very
enlightening and he has trained a lot of brothers that are strong students
of knowledge today. However, his stance from the 70's has not changed;
he still has he same old dialogue and not bringing, any new ilm to
the table nor increased in his deen, Allahu Alim. He is still
championing the unpopular cause. He talks the talk but don't walk the
walk! Very sad. His legacy has turned into verbal rubbish.
Ash-Shaafi'ee, may Allah have mercy on him, said: "Whoever learns the
Qur'an, his value becomes magnified. And whoever speaks about Fiqh, his
status becomes increased. And whoever records Hadeeth, his arguments
become strengthened. And whoever looks into accounting, his views will
become unerring. And whoever does not maintain himself, his knowledge
will not benefit him." Siyar A'alaam-in-Nubalaa: 10/24
"It is those who believe and confuse not their beliefs with wrong - that
are (truly) in security, for they are on (right) guidance."
Barakallahu Feekum Wa Hasanallahu Ilaykum. May Allah benefit us
with that which is good, enter us into jannatul firdaus and save
us from His anger, curse, and punishment in this dunya and the next.
May Allah give us taqwa and thabaat on the haq!
May Allah forgive us all our sins and have mercy on us and all the
Muslims and unite us upon Tawhid! A'ameen.

Top Pakistani Physician Responds to Smear Campaign Against Jamia Hafsa
by the Daily Dawn & Westernized Pakistani Media
"In the name of religion" By Naushaba Burney:
An extremely Biased article by Dawn
With Allah's Name, the Most Merciful, the Most Compassionate
Dear Editor: Assalamo Alaikum.
I read with utter dismay the article "In the name of religion" by
By Naushaba Burney. The article was typical of Zionist type bullshit and
did not match with the standard of Dawn. It was extremely biased
and had grave element of defamation of Islam and Muslims. It seems that
Dawn has joined the bandwagon of Anti -Islam and Anti -Muslim
propaganda in the form of Media Terrorism which was always there but got
quite intensified after mega event of Lie of the Millennium i.e. 9/11.
Let us be very objective and just. The crime of the Hafsa Girls was to
respond to a call of a sister who was a victim of gang rape, black mailing
after taking her undesirable picture and threats to kill her and her
parents if she disclosed the incidence. (For details please read the
entire story in Daily Ausaf which of course your newspaper did not dare
to print.) The girl and the Lal Masjid Imam etc had approached police and
other high authorities to do something about this brothel house which was
run by Shamim Naqvie for years. Innocent girls are abducted and forced to
above mentioned treatment. When no one listened, the girls of Hafsa
Madressa took the Brothel House runner and made her repent. They did
not beat her and they did not torture her.
Now which one is the bigger crime? That of Hafsa girls or that of
Shamim Naqvi? And how can you let Islamabad authorities off the hook?
Now compare this with the crimes of Pervez [Musharraf] who abducted
innumerable people from their homes and put them in torture cells. He
even handed over Mullah Zaif, the Afghan ambassador, to Uncle SAM who
kept him in Guantanamo Bay and beat him so severely that he became deaf
from one ear.
When someone makes a mosque on government land, it creates lot of waves
but when Bilal Musharraf creates McDonalds in F 9 Park at the expense of
a public park, there is no wave and even Dawn remains dumb, deaf
There were many other insults in the poorly written and highly biased
article. Taking Hijab is a voluntary and it does not cause any
obstruction in teaching. I have taught many many female students both
in Pakistan and Saudi Arabia as well as in USA and I found no difference
at all. I have lived in Islamabad for last 10 years and never saw any
body threatening to any one on account of Hijab. Hijab is painful to
Chauvinist males who want to treat woman like a mere disreputable doll;
however many women find it highly comfortable and protective.
If Dawn does not publish our letters against its extremely
biased articles etc, we will then publish these letters on many forums
on internet exposing Dawn's hypocrisy and yellow journalism.
With Kindest Regards,
Prof. (Dr.) Anwar Ul Haque

Muslim Woman Needs Funds for Attorney but there is no money.....
This is a testimony to what you were saying in New Trend about raising
money for Islamic Centers instead of putting it where it is needed. As
for Sr. Maryam Uloho, the Louisiana Supreme Court's April 27 judgment
denied her writ. The Supreme Court did not assign reasons for denying
the writ. They merely wrote "Denied" which is what they typically state
on judgments denying review. She has 79 days to file her petition for
federal habeas corpus in the United States District Court in New Orleans.
The going rate for writing and filing the petition is $20,000 plus
expenses. The family has already spent $15,000 with nothing to show
for it. We need to raise the money. Right now we have $250 in her
defense fund. That has been the balance for two years.

Jews Celebrate Sarkozy Victory in France
JTA (New York)
Nicolas Sarkozy, the grandson of a Greek Jew, has been elected president
of France. Optimistic and celebratory, Jewish groups were quick to offer
congratulations to Sarkozy after his victory in French presidential
elections. Sarkozy, of the ruling Union for a Popular Movement (UMP),
defeated Socialist Party candidate Segolene Royal in Sunday's runoff.
He garnered some 53 percent to Royal's 47 percent in the election,
which featured a huge voter turnout. The former interior minister was
seen by Jewish voters as a friend to Israel and an important figure in
the fight against anti-Semitism.
