Jamia Hafsa students protest outside National Asembly of
Pakistan: Re-Emergence of Islamic Women's Movement after
Military Strikes by Mush-Bush
March 29, 2008:ISLAMABAD: A group of some 30-40 burqa-clad
female students from Jamia Hafsa protested in front of the
National Assembly while the session was in progress. They
demanded immediate release of Maulana Abdul Aziz Ghazi and
reconstruction of Jamia Hafsa.
The demonstrating students were holding placards and banners
with anti-government slogans on them. They said that the
purpose of their coming there was to voice their demands and
grievances to the members of the newly-elected assembly.
The students tried to enter the assembly building but police
kept them away. The students dispersed peacefully after
"Makkah Learning Center" Attempts to Defame
African-American Sister: Interview Reveals a Genuine Muslimah
Working to Help Women at the Grassroots Level
by Kaukab Siddique
The Internet communities of Muslims in Baltimore have been
wracked by a campaign of abuse and character assassination
aimed at a Muslim woman named Nadia. I watched in horror,
wondering at this shameless activity of slander and abuse.
The last straw was when a group calling itself by the grand
title of "Makkah Learning Center" [MLC] joined the attack and
published a notice urging Muslims not to help Sis. Nadia's
organization titled al-Mumtahinah, which helps homeless
women, calling her a fake and claiming that the real
al-Mumtahinah is run by two individuals in ISB [Islamic
Society of Baltimore].
I was intrigued that MLC was attacking and slandering a
Muslim woman without asking for her viewpoint. [Notice that
New Trend gives all who are criticized in its columns, the
right of reply.]
I have read that MLC leaders [emanating from the Islamic
Society of Annapolis] are a bunch of bootlickers of Zionists.
During the so-called Annapolis Summit organized by Bush and
the Israelis, these people, led by their "imam" went and
prayed with Rabbis. What kind of trash these people are,
praying for the success of an Israeli venture!
When we held the demonstration against Rushdie, MLC refused
to join. Even standing up for the honor of the Prophet, pbuh,
is too much for these people. Why would these shameless
cowards be attacking an African-American Muslimah?
Suffice it to say that the attacks on Sis. Nadia didn't sound
right although MLC presented them with complete and
aggressive confidence but with no proof.
So, following my journalistic instinct, on March 28, I
interviewed Sis. Nadia, along with her husband Abdul Haqq
[who it turned out knew me from way back] and her two
daughters. It's a solidly Islamic family. I was expecting a
wishy washy semi-westernized woman out to make a buck, if the
smear campaign was to be believed. Sis. Nadia turned out to
be a niqabi with complete hijab! Her husband is
one of the rare men in Baltimore who wears Sunnah-type
flowing clothes with a small turban. The two girls
I interviewed her for about two hours. She gave me copies of
all her documents. She has a track record of service, helping
homeless women. It started when, on embracing Islam, she
herself became homeless. Muslims had no homeless shelters for
women, so she went to the Salvation Army. They would keep her
only on condition that she join Bible class. She refused,
picked up her things and left.
The incident became public and was picked up by the media, so
there is a record of it. More recently, her work for homeless \
Muslim women was published in the Washington Post.
The so-called MLC should apologize to Sis. Nadia. Their
racism and unIslamic behavior stands uncovered. They did not
notice that the woman who has been distributing emails
against Sis. Nadia calls herself JoAnne but does not give her
full name. Thus MLC slandered Sis. Nadia without the
Readers who know more about the persons involved in the
campaign of slander against Sis. Nadia should write to New
Trend. If readers want copies of her documents, I can send
them with her permission.

Muslim Brotherhood [Ikhwan]. What happened to them?
Fethullah Gulen in Turkey.
The Decline and Fall of the Muslim Brotherhood
movement by Imam Badi Ali
The Ikhwan al-Muslimoon [the Brotherhood movement] is helping
the U.S. construct a new "Islam" which will be acceptable to
the West. The original Muslim Brotherhood movement was the
most important Islamic movement in the Middle East; thus many
Muslims are easily misled by this one using the old name.
Hasan al-Banna, shaheed, its founder, was the pride of the
Muslim world. The Ikhwan went through terrible suffering at
the hands of Gamal 'Abdel Nasser.
Today, only the facade of Islam remains in the Brotherhood
movement: Those who were serious about the original Islamic
message of the movement left decades back and organized
A sign of the times is that the Brotherhood movement [BM
hereinafter] disowned Syed Qutb, the greatest intellect and
the most famous martyr of the Ikhwan. He was telling his
people that the Qur'an does not accept the "Islam" of those
who do not rule according to Islam. He provided a study of
Islam as a complete way of life and rejected any cooperation
with the Pharoahs who rule Egypt. That was too much for the
breakaway "Ikhwan" who continue to use the name.
Then the BM went a step further. When the Egyptian dictator
Anwar Sadat betrayed his nation [and Islam] and flew to
"Israel" to give legitimacy to the terrorist entity, the
Egyptian people, though unarmed, resisted. Finally Khalid
al-Islambouli [shaheed] killed the Pharoah. In response, BM
condemned Khalid as a "terrorist." Since then the BM has been
in steady decline and has become nothing more than a social
welfare and charity group.
The most recent retreat from its original message was when BM
decided to run for elections under the blood drenched regime
of Hosni Mubarak. It won [or was allowed to win] a number of
seats and proclaimed this as its great victory. Increasingly
the BM has been working hand-in-glove with the White House as
can be seen in the activities of BM in America where this
group controls a number of mosques owing to its
The BM is involved in the creation of a new "Islam." Its new
generation includes people like Amr Khalid who is seen
physically with the dictator Hosni Mubarak. Throughout
these years, 2001-2008, when the U.S. has been attacking Iraq
and Afghanistan, BM has been very quiet and has spent its
energies in condemning the 9.11 attacks, thus accepting the
anti-Islam pattern of thought. BM in America has come up with
new definitions of Jihad, including the claim that getting up
for fajr prayers is jihad. Thus BM has been extremely useful
for the Bush administration and has been used in a variety of
ways. [to be continued, inshallah]
Fethullah Gulen: Bringing A new "Islam" in which all
religions are, more or less, the same
The Turkish Study Group has sent New Trend the text of a
paper presented at Marquette University [Milwaukee,
Wisconsin] by Rev. Thomas Mitchel which discusses Islam in
Turkey. The paper provides a glowing account of the movement
led by Fethullah Gulen in Turkey and gives some idea of the
tremendous support Gulen is getting from westernized Muslim
circles in Turkey and America.
Gulen's technique is that he tries to give the impression
that he has inherited the values and teachings of the Turkish
teacher and leader of resurgent Islam, Imam Badiuzzaman
Nursi. Gulen, however, is not opposing the power structure
but is supporting all its programs including the invention of
a "moderate" Islam meant to divide and mislead
Gulen's line is that Judaism, Christianity and Islam are all
"Abrahamic" religions and thus differ from each other only in
details. He is a great admirer of the Pope. One could be
fooled into thinking that he is a peacemaker who wants to be
friendly with Christians. Unfortunately, he is using this
line of thinking to attack Muslims who oppose America's
hegemonic designs. Resistance by Islamic forces is seen by
Gulen as "terrorism" and thus he fits easily into America's
Gulen is spreading his tentacles into Muslim communities in
America with total U.S. support. His views are of direct
relevance to us because Dr. Ingrid Mattson, the woman who was
appointed head of ISNA [the Islamic Society of North
America], so called] was the editor of the missionary
magazine coming out of Hartford, Connecticut which published
a whole special issue on Gulen and presented him to U.S.
Muslims as the bringer of an "acceptable" Islam. [Acceptable
that is to the rulers of U.S. of A.].

LATEST NEWS from Somalia
Islamic forces are now in control of most of Somalia. In the
capital, Mogadishu, itself, Ethiopian tank columns and Somali
"government" troops funded by the U.S. have failed to evict
Islamic resistance groups owing to the support of the

beat back the U.S.-backed troops who were looting, inflicted
heavy losses on them and forced them to retreat all the way
to the presidential palace.
Here is the lead into the story as presented by the New York
Times of March 29, 2008:

Letter: Strategies Used against Muslims Post 9.11 were
first Used Against Native Americans ["Indians"]
As-Salaam Elekum Brother!
(1) Thanks for your list of items about our "Revolutionary
Prophet." My suggestion is that you consider this discussion
/ article/statement /list of ideas ---- as an on-going one
and add to them over several attempts from more than one
angle (theme/topic), and through "experiencing"
(2) Another suggestion: Perhaps it would be beneficial for
Muslims to be made aware of the fact that strategies that h
ave been used against Muslims since 9/11 have been taken from
and experienced by Native Americans / Indians in the Americas
in past centuries, such as: Interfering with Native
American cultures by: Demeaning/creating a negative attitude
about their culture, attempting to destroy their way of
life, their belief system and religion by -------- (i)
breaking up the families (taking children from
families/parents and putting them in Christian/White Man's
schools and brainwashing them, (ii) killing/wiping out the
buffaloes--the staple diet and means of food (and economy)
survival, having a disrespectful attitude towards their
belief system (such as carving busts of American
Presidents on Mount Rushmore that was considered sacred
ground for the Natives of the land around it), (iii)
taking away their natural resources/their land which the
Natives considered as belonging to only the Creator and not
possessions of any man or military or civil power, (iv)
Destroying their languages with devastating consequences on
their societies, and (v) imposing/thrusting down their
throats their own religious beliefs via Christianity, and by
(vi) "demonizing" them as people who were not God's
creation, as "barbaric" "primitive" and dangerous.
They demonized Muslims at the global level after 9/11. Now
if we trace back all the things done by the west to Muslims
around the world by recalling all the facts/events/recent
history/actions against the Muslim Ummah---you will come up
with effective strategies to counteract the impact of the
evils that we face ---- in order to (a) survive, (b) stop
"Evil" and cruelties on both sides that is spiraling and
destroying the world's people, and, hopefully, help bring
about Justice and Peace on Earth for all of Humanity. That is
the responsibility of the Muslim Ummah ------placed upon our
shoulders by the Almighty. That is what it means to be a
"Muslim" / believer in the Modern World.
In conclusion: Muslims need to read the history of the
Native Americans in the USA and Canada.
And also, at a secondary level perhaps also look at the
history of the Mexicans and natives of South and Central
Americans and the "White Man's" attack on these cultures
because there are may similar events there also.
The Hand of International Jewry emerges thru
The Pope, Denmark, Holland, Germany Launch Attacks on
Islam and the beloved Prophet, pbuh: Cultural
Osama bin Laden & Muslims Worldwide Respond to Attacks
by New Trend's Media Monitor
The Jewish-Zionists seem to be ready to inflict a cultural
Holocaust against the Muslim world in the name of "freedom
On February 13, 2008 all of the newspapers in Denmark
re-published blasphemous cartoons insulting the best of men,
Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah be on him.
The Pope, who has a problem hiding his deep hatred for
Islam, came out in a ridiculous ceremony to honor and hail a
mediocre Islam hater, who other than in his name, had nothing
to do with Islam. The Pope claimed the man had accepted
Christianity. It was an unprovoked act of hatred and
frustration. In Europe and all over the world, the adherents
of the Pope are embracing Islam. If Muslims were to follow
the Pope's example, there would be daily ceremonies hailing
the conversion of Christians to Islam. In the Pope's country
of origin, Germany, Islam is spreading among young German men
Then along came the Netherlands with their nasty little movie
attacking the Qur'an. The Dutch government and small Left
groups have distanced themselves from the movie but the fact
remains that Holland considers that the release of the
poorly produced hate script against Islam comes under the
heading of "freedom of expression." Holland is also the
country from where came Ayana Hirsi Ali who prides herself on
insulting Islam and the Prophet, pbuh. This cheap
propagandist against Islam, Hirsi Ali, reached the highest
levels of Dutch society because she insulted Islam.
Finally we have Germany coming forth with a dramatized
version of Rushdie's Satanic Verses. The Jews have
returned with a vengeance to Germany and are lowering the
great German nation to lower and lower levels of degradation.
Under Hitler, Germany was a proud, self-respecting nation
which could stand up to the world powers. Now we have a
Germany which is milked of BILLIONS of dollars by
International Jewry and helps arm the terrorist entity known
The response to these attacks has come from the heaviest
hitter in the Muslim world, Osama bin Laden himself.
It appears that Osama knows more about the Pope than most
Muslims. He pre-empted the Pope's fake ceremony baptizing a
fake Muslim. Osama, in spite of all the rumors of his death,
sent out an audio message in which he holds the Pope
responsible for the attacks on Islam. The Islamic leader also
warned the European countries publishing cartoons of the
Prophet, pbuh, that they are playing with fire.
In Pakistan the situation is so serious that for the
first time the corrupt secularized government in Islamabad
called in the Dutch ambassador and protested. Hundreds of
rallies, some of them huge, have been held
Indonesia, Iran, Sudan have protested both against the
Danish cartoons and the Dutch movie.
Most surprisingly, the people of Afghanistan came out
in the streets against the cartoons although they live under
NATO occupation and face intense poverty.
Osama bin Laden is not the only one who has spoken out. Top
Pakistani Islamic leaders have also warned that these
blasphemous attacks on Islam will lead to a worldwide Islamic
response [though they have not threatened an armed response
as Osama has done.] Among them are Qazi Hussain Ahmad of
Jamaate Islami, Hafiz Muhammad Saeed of Jamat ad-Da'wa and
Maulana Abdul Ghaffar of the Red Mosque along with numerous
grassroots leaders of Ahle Sunnah and Ahle-Shi'a.
Saudi Arabia's organization Rabitat al-Alam al-Islami
was the most creative: It published articles titled: "The
Messenger, peace be on him, Mercy for the Whole World" in the
12 Danish newspapers which had published the cartoons.
Editorial comment: The best way to stop the attacks
against Islam is to carry out a big time analytical study of
the Holocaust stories circulated by International Jewry.
The Zionist-Jews are behind the Pope. Remember that the Pope
is from Germany and one of his first actions was to make a
"pilgrimage" to Auschwitz. The Vatican sneakily recognized
the terrorist entity known as Israel and now pretends to be a
friend of Muslims.
The entire edifice of Zionism can be brought down
through the popularization of great analytical works
undermining the holocaust story. Muslims should call for the
release of Germar Rudolf, Ernst Zundel and hundreds of others
held in German prisons because they questioned the
In World War II, Germans suffered tremendously. All their
cities were wiped out and hundreds of thousands of Germans,
men, women, children were burned alive.
With thorough research, without hatred but with attention to
the documents made available by revisionist scholars, the
Zionist enterprise can be undermined. Jews suffered often
because they supported the Soviet Union. Latvians,
Lithuanians, Ukrainians, Poles hated the Jews because of the
Jewish support for Stalin's massacres. History is much too
complex to be put under the label of "What Hitler and the
Nazis did." No British or American air force commander has
ever been brought to court for killing civilians, be it in
Germany then or Iraq now.
Notice that Denmark, Holland, the Pope, and Germany dare not
say a word critical of the holocaust story. They apply
"freedom of expression" only to attacks on Muhammad, pbuh,
his family, r.a., and the Qur'an. The Pope has not even
condemned the bombing of Iraq and Afghanistan.

Historic United Move by Pakistani Islamic Scholars to
Defend the Honor of the Prophet, pbuh: Sudan's Boycott Call
Hailed: Silence of Pope Benedict XVI Condemned.
Lahore, March 30, 2008
A one day convention of religious leaders and prominent
Islamic scholars from all over Pakistan, titled
'Hurmat-e-Rasool [Hpnor of the Prophet, pbuh] Convention'
organized by Jamat-ud-Dawah Pakistan was held at Markaz
al-Qadsia, Chowburji, Lahore, to discuss the republication of
disrespectful and insulting caricatures of the Prophet
Muhammad, sallallahu alaihi wasallam, in Danish newspapers,
as well as the release of a highly offensive anti-Islam film
by a member of the Dutch parliament and to chart a strategy
for an initial response to this issue.
The convention was chaired by Ameer Jamat-ud-Dawah
Pakistan Prof. Hafiz Muhammad Saeed. Some of the prominent
Islamic scholars and religious leaders who participated in
the convention were Ex-President of Pakistan Muhammad Rafique
Tarrar, head of JUI(S) Moulana Sameeul Haqq, head of
Markazi Jamiat Ahl-e-Hadith Senator Prof. Sajid Meer,
deputy Ameer Jamat-e-Islami Pakistan Moulana Aslam
Saleemi, Secretary Information JUI(F) Moulana Amjad
Khan, head of Khaksar Tehreek engneer Hameedud Deen al
Mashraqi, head of Shia Political Party Nowbahar Shah,
head of JUP(NF) engineer Saleemullah Khan, head of
Itihad-ul-Ulama (a body representing Ulamas from
all over Pakistan) Moulana Abdul Malik Mujadid, Central
leader of Jamat-ud-Dawah Hafiz Abdur Rehman Makki, Moulana
Ameer Hamza, deputy head of Jamiah Ashrafia Moulana
Fazal-e-Raheem and others. This was a representative
convention of all the four sects of Islam and the efforts of
Jamat-ud-Dawah to bring leaders of different sects together
were highly appreciated.
The following resolution was unanimously adopted and
announced at the conclusion of the convention:
Safeguarding of the Prophet's, sallallahu alaihi
wasallam's, sanctity is an integral part of every Muslim's
faith, and every possible sacrifice can, and will, be made
for upholding it. (in'shaa'Allah)
Ambassadors of Denmark and Holland should be expelled from
all Muslim countries; imports from both these countries
should be banned; Muslims, all over the world, must
boycott all Danish and Dutch products, and Muslim traders
should play their role to make this global boycott campaign
The United Nations should take practical measures to stop
the re-publication of the insulting caricatures and the
dissemination of the offensive film; otherwise Muslim nations
will form their own 'United States of Islam' and will leave
membership of the United Nations.
The boycott by Sudan's president Omar al-Bashir is a
glowing example for Muslim nations to follow. This convention
assures of its full support to the government of Sudan and
condemns ongoing conspiracies against Sudan's integrity by
the West, especially by the U.S.
Saudi Arabia's efforts, whereby it is endeavoring to
have defamation of the Prophet, sallallahu alaihi wasallam,
recognized as a crime from the platform of the United
Nations, are lauded. Other Muslim nations should follow Saudi
Arabia's example. Moreover, this convention endorses the
letter written by 35 prominent Islamic scholars of
Karachi to the Secretary General of the United Nations in
Publication of advertisements titled 'Know Your Prophet',
sallallahu alaihi wasallam, by Rabita Aalam al-Islami in
Danish newspapers is a commendable act. Such admirable
actions should be further promoted.
The OIC should not depend solely on issuing statements and
passing resolutions, but instead, should represent the true
emotions of 1.5 billion Muslims of the world, and take
practical steps to end the disrespect of the Prophet,
sallallahu alaihi wasallam.
Muslims consider the inviolability of the sanctity of all
Prophets as an integral part of their faith, yet the criminal
silence of Pope Benedict XVI, as well as other prominent
Christian clergy and leaders, makes their role highly
questionable and suspect. They must clarify their position;
otherwise Muslims will be forced to believe that the Pope's
anti-Islam remarks are a part of this organized campaign
which the West has begun against Islam.
The Hurmat-e-Rasool campaign will be further organized and
augmented. The pace of familiarizing the Muslim Ummah with
the Seerah (life and character) of the Prophet, sallallahu
alaihi wasallam, will be further increased (in'shaa'Allah).
It is necessary for a robust response to the disrespect of
the Prophet, sallallahu alaihi wasallam, that Muslims instill
a Muhammadan, sallallahu alaihi wasallam, spirit in
themselves, rather than espousing Western culture.
A special session of the National Assembly should be
convened to address the issue of the sanctity of the Prophet,
sallallahu alaihi wasallam, solely, and in which the
government should be bound, through a resolution, that it
will immediately sever diplomatic and economic relations with
Denmark and Holland.
National hero, Dr. Abd-ul-Qadeer Khan, should be freed
immediately, and he should also be recompensed for all
injustices committed against him.
All misunderstandings and ambiguities which had arisen
during Musharraf's era should be removed, and a Kashmir
policy which reflects the aspirations of the nation should

Pakistani nation is prepared to stand shoulder to shoulder
with them and offer any sort of sacrifice in their

just struggles for independence of the Muslims of Palestine,
Kashmir, Afghanistan, Iraq, Chechnya, Somalia, and the
Philippines. Moreover, it congratulates Muslims of Kosovo on
India, Israel, and the U.S. are involved in the subversive
and terrorist activities in Pakistan. Pakistan's rulers
should inform the people about the facts, instead of trying
to conceal the role the agencies of these countries in these
subversive acts. Moreover, the custom of blaming Islamic
organizations for every bomb blast and terrorist activity
should be ended.
Pakistan has been turned into a war zone because of Pervez
Musharraf's policies; these policies must be
The U.S. does not want peace to prevail in Pakistan, and
its efforts to influence the new government are highly
condemnable. The rulers should slam the promised $300 million
in U.S. aid, back onto its face, and not enter into any
negotiations which will compromise the nation's pride.
Furthermore, the practice of using of Pakistan's armed forces
for American interests should be ended forthwith.
Freeing of judges is a commendable act, yet urgent efforts
must be made for the reinstatement of all judges, including
the Chief Justice, Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry.
The government of Pakistan should take solid steps for the
repatriation of Pakistanis incarcerated in India. Moreover,
an effective system for the rehabilitation of these prisoners
should be sketched out. Whereas, India should called to
account for the cold blooded murder of Pakistani citizen,
Khalid Mehmood, who was martyred in an Indian jail.
