Pakistani doctor calls for urgent medical help for victims of Musharraf's attack on Islamic women's university. Please scroll all the way down.


SMILE: Senator Lieberman called for the greater use of surveillance cameras in America because, he claimed, cameras had uncovered the recent "doctors' plot" in UK.
[Source: Fox TV, July 3, 2007]

Lieberman, who is said to be more Israeli than American, is dead wrong. The so-called doctors' plot was not uncovered by cameras but by the chance "discovery" of rigged vehicles. This man seriously wants to curtail the rights of Americans.

Jamia Hafsa and Lal Masjid Defy General Musharraf's 10,000 Pakistani Troops
Loud Explosions: Pak Mortars Hits Mosque at Close Range: Numerous Casualties

July 5, 6 and 7, 2007: Day 3, 4 and 5 of the siege:

[July 8 in USA] Pakistan army's artillery scored a direct hit on the fuel storage of Lal Masjid just as this report was being prepared. The explosion could be heard for miles in the terrorized city.

Pakistan's history is changing even as we write this. For the first time in Pakistan's history, an Islamic women's university and a mosque are under attack, in the country's capital, by the Pakistani army, funded and armed by the U.S.

Numerous times, in these three days, Pakistani troops edged closer to the Islamic complex only to be repelled by vigilant young Muslims guarding the perimeter. The entire area, the size of a small town, around the Islamic university and mosque has been cordoned off by the army. Water and electricity to the entire area were cut off by Musharraf's police and support forces. Now the services, though meager, are being restored to some areas of the city. The population was punished for supporting Jamia Hafsa.

The government media tried very hard to discredit Maulana Abdul Aziz, the khateeb of Lal Masjid, who was arrested by police as he stepped out to say farewell to departing students. Pakistani intelligence turned out to be good at disinformation. They staged an entire "interview" on government controlled TV [PTV] in which a look alike of Maulana Abdul Aziz was shown wearing a burqa which he then took off, on camera, to the amusement of the audience. Many were fooled, including the MMA buffoon Maulana Fazlur Rahman and the Dawn columnist Ayaz Mir.

However, one Pakistani group published a comparison of the photos of Maulana Abdul Aziz with those of the man in the interview. The difference is quite distinct. Here is the link:

ABDUR RASHID GHAZI and UMM HASAN used modern technology [cell phones] to contact a private TV station, Geo, to contradict Musharraf's propaganda. The government then got into the action to try psychological propaganda against the two using the same channel, Geo, while the interviews were going on. All kinds of "offers" were made if only the two were to surrender.

It appears that the young women inside the Islamic school do not want to leave though they are free to go. In one instance, the parents of a girl came to fetch her. She said that she would be willing to go for a short while with the parents if they pledged to bring her back. When she was told, she won't be able to return, she refused.

Abdur Rashid Ghazi's daughter, mother, sister and sister-in-law are with him in the besieged mosque urging him to continue in Allah's way. Umm Hasan's interview with Geo was so fiery [July 6] that the TV station refused to air it and gave only an outline.

In Islamic history, we have an original of this tragic situation. Abdullah ibn Zubair, r.a., was attacked by the Ummayad king's powerful army even when he took refuge in the Ka'aba. His mother Asma, r.a., [daughter of Abu Bakr, r.a.] told him to keep fighting regardless of the odds if he was fighting in Allah's way. Today another satanic king, America's bootlicker, the scum of Pakistani military is trying to kill Abdur Rashid Ghazi even in the sanctuary of the mosque. [A red mosque, very symbolic in Islam, the color of Ayesha Siddiqa's [r.a.] outer garment.]

Though not appropriate for America, this will be of great interest for Pakistani readers and for readers from Pakistan.

We have received a number of poems about the tragedy of Islamabad where General Musharraf used 10,000 troops to attack an Islamic women's university and a mosque which was trying to end the corruption of Musharraf's officials.
The most powerful poem, from Islamic viewpoint, is in Urdu. We'll try to translate it as far as possible:

Transliteration of TEXT of URDU original:
[NT needs Urdu software.]

Dukhtarane Rahe Ayesha-o- Asma - o- Umm Ammara: Tum ko Salam

Islam ki yeh baytian: khun main Lat put purri huin, bay gor-o-kafan

Shahadat kay rutbay pai faiz: Masoom-o-pak-o-shareef

Amerikkka kay mulazim, musharraf, nain dhaia yay zulum: La'nat ho tum pur, bawardi darinday!

Musalamanan-Pakistan bolo ub kia hay tumhara Faraz:

Lathian uthay, ba haya baytian, sar-ta-pa paykar-e- Ismat-e-Islam.

Musharraf ki topon ki shikar, zubardast bambari main bhi rahin misl-e-Sumayya muntazar


Pakistanio! Kaya Choorian pahnay huway ho! Laiken yeh kahtay huway bhi ahsas hota hay
Choorian pahnen walian to mardon say kahin ziyada niklin pur azam!


"Utho mairi dunian kay gharibon ko jaga do"
Kakh e Umra kay dar o Diwar hilla do"



O Daughters of the Way of 'Ayesha and Asma and Umm Ammara: I salute you!

These daughters of Islam, covered with blood from head to foot, left unburied without coffins

Exalted in martyrdom, innocent, pure and noble!

America's servant Musharraf wrought this barbarity: Curses be on you, uniformed animal!

O Muslims of Pakistan! What is now your duty?

Carrying sticks and staves, shy daughters, clothed in the purity of Islam from head to foot!
Targets of Musharraf's artillery, they waited in the worst shelling like Sumayya [for martyrdom]

Revenge! Revenge! Revenge!

Pakistanis! Are you wearing bangles! But even as I say this, I realize,
Those who wear bangles turned out to be more perseverant and courageous than men!


"Arise and awaken the poor masses of my world!
Let the palaces of the rulers and the mansions of the rich tremble!"


Editor: Please say "Allah be pleased with her" after the names of the great women of the era of the Prophet, pbuh, mentioned in the poem: Ayesha, r.a., Asma, r.a., Umm Ammara, r.a., Sumayya, r.a.

The final two lines are probably in quotation marks because they are from a famous poem by Allama Iqbal, the Poet of the East.

Outreach: Breaking the Silence about Musharraf's Attack on Women in Islamabad.
Two Attempts Made to stop distribution by Pak. nationalists

July 6, 2007: Muslim Community Center [MCC] located in Silver Spring, Maryland attracts worshippers from elite segments of the Muslim community, particularly from Pakistan, Bangladesh, India, Mali, Senegal, Ivory Coast and a sprinkling of African-Americans and Arabs.

After Juma' prayers Jamaat al-Muslimeen distributed literature about the massive siege America's General Musharraf is carrying out in Islamabad, Pakistan, with 10,000 Pakistan mercenaries armed by the USA targeting an Islamic women's university, Jamia Hafsa, and the famous Lal Masjid which supports women's rights.

The literature included an extensive report on a Libyan prisoner in Guantanamo, Abdul Rao'uf al-Qassim, marrried to an Afghan woman, also sold to the USA by Musharraf, who is on the point of being handed over to the murderous Qaddafi regime notorious for its oppression of Islamic activists. A report on he Mumia Jamal rally in Philadelphia [July 4] was included.

After the literature had been given to 100 people, there was trouble from a couple of Pakistanis. One person, looking very Islamic, sort of like the older ICNA-types, small white beard, white kurta pyjama, thought we needed his permission for distribution. It didn't work for him.

The next disturbance came from an MQM type Pakistani [Urdu-speaking racist] with a big moustachio. He claimed that the literature insulted his country [Pakistan]. He started shouting, calling for a stop to the distribution. Alhamdulillah, his shouting did not get any support from the worshippers.

There were also some very nice encounters, one with an elderly gentleman from Bangladesh who has done the Hajj and the Umrah. He made du'a for us, alhamdulillah.

Abeer Qassim Hamza al-Janabi was a 14-year old Iraqi girl who lived in the village of Mahmoudiyah southeast of Baghdad. She was gang-raped, killed and burned by American troops. Her parents and her younger sister were also shot and killed. Initial details published by the American media incorrectly and repeatedly reported Abeer’s age as 25. Her case has come to symbolize the brutality and animalism of the U.S. occupation.

Letter: Don't Blame All Shi'as


On one occasion the editor of New Trend wrote that Shias collaborate with invaders as they did on the time of Mongol Invasion. This is a wrong statement as the story of Sarbedaran (only one case) proves this statement wrong.

Press Release

Friday, July 06, 2007

Prof. Anwar Ul Haque, Chairman Pakistan Medical Organization (PMO) has held Pervez Musharraf responsible for all killings in Lal Masjid in Islamabad. He said over 100 innocent human beings have been killed so far. More than 30 bodies of female students and 50 male students are lying without coffin and proper burial in Hafsa Madressa and Lal Masjid respectively. Many of these peoples’ precious lives could have been saved had Pervez Musharraf allowed medical personnel to enter Lal Masjid and provide the required medical treatment. Even now there are over 100 patients in critical conditions there but Pakistan's coward and ruthless Military Dictator is not allowing medical personnel to enter Lal Masjid. He said by imposing curfew and not allowing doctors working at Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) and Poly Clinic, Pervez Musharraf has caused significant miseries to the patients admitted there.
Prof. Anwar Ul Haque said that many acts of terrorism in Pakistan are masterminded by him and his notorious mafias. He appealed to entire medical community to condemn Pervez Musharraf's dictatorial and inhumane acts which are breeding more violence, terrorism and hatred towards Western word. He asked medical community to come forward and provide necessary medical help to the injured patients in Lal Masjid. He also condemned arrest of injured students from Poly clinic saying that it was against medical ethics. He said if people reacted in kind, no minister and no Government official will be able to get help in any hospital.

Prof. Anwar Ul Haque demanded that dead bodies must be allowed to be buried according to Islamic respect and honor. He said more than 30 bodies of female students and 50 dead bodies are lying in Hafsa Madressa and Lal Masjid respectively. He said that if Government allowed, PMO will take care of all injured patients Insha Allah and bring out the bodies to be buried in F 9 Park. Islamabad.

He requested Chief Justice of Pakistan to take notice of these gross violations of human rights. He said that Pervaiz Musharraf be tried for cold blood murder of 50 innocent human beings on May 12, 2007 in Karachi and now over 100 innocent human beings in Islamabad.

Prof. Anwar Ul Haque said that doctors do not discriminate their patients on the basis of religion, nationality, demography, profession, color, race, gender etc. Each and every doctor is ethically and morally bound to render treatment to any needy patient. He said there is no terrorism in Islam and no sane true Muslim can participate in any terrorist activity. Prof. Anwar Ul Haque said that all terrorist attacks on civilians must be stopped immediately. He said that Pakistan's military terrorist dictator is acting as Lord Mountbatten. His clan of extremely corrupt and incompetent ministers, advisors and allied mafia feel that they are the genuine heirs of British colonists. Instead of serving people of Pakistan, they are acting as the most obedient servants for their foreign masters.

Prof. Anwar Ul Haque said that Pervezi Mafia must close all brothel houses and massage parlors as these are creating a lot of mental and psychological illnesses apart from violence and other crimes. He requested Chinese Government to respect Islamic values and call back all its citizens who are engaged in immoral and unethical activities. He demanded that those Chinese authorities be punished who beheaded those Chinese students in time of Nawaz Sharif, who came to Pakistan for acquiring Islamic education. He said Chinese are generally respected and loved by Pakistanis; however such actins will create hatred and will make it difficult for them to work in different parts of Pakistan. He said good and cordial relations between Chinese and Pakistani citizens must not be spoiled. .
