March 23, 1940. The Dream of Pakistan:
From Iqbal to Jinnah and many others.
Here is our gift to Pakistani readers. Munir Khalili has
recently become distinguished on the Pakistani scene with
his brilliant columns written in gracious and classical Urdu
Here he encapsulates the struggle for Pakistan all the way
from the dark days of 1857 when the British drowned the
uprising of the people in blood, till today when secularists
are claiming that Islam is not a political religion and
should only be used for teaching morality.
Khalili notes briefly but in brilliant reference the message
of the Qur'an which is comprehensive and all encompassing.
Politics and struggle are central to the message.
He specifically mentions and summarizes the contributions of
the geniuses of the Islamic movement who made Pakistan
possible. The Ulema e Haqq as well as westernized leaders
like Iqbal and Jinnah who became strongly Islamic played
their role in this movement.
Pakistan's very existence is a threat to the entire secular

poison of "anti-Jihad" ideas being spread in Pakistan by

Research & Analysis
[On line Agha Khanis and Shias are attacking one of the
greatest companions of the Prophet, pbuh, Khalid r.a., ibn
al-Waleed. They don't realize that Ali, r.a., and the early
leaders of Shiism did not think like them.] [This new series
of attacks followed Ismailis attacking the Qur'an.]
Is there any Validity to the Claims that Khalid ibn
al-Waleed (r.a.) Acted unIslamically in the Case of Malik
by Kaukab Siddique, PhD
(In earlier writings I pointed out that Ali ibn abi Talib
(r.a.) as well as those imams who got their wisdom from Ali
(r.a.) did not insult, abuse, oppose or attack the sahaba of
Muhammad, pbuh. Anyone who insults 'Ayesha, Abu Bakr, 'Umar,
'Usman (Allah be pleased with them) cannot claim to be a
Shia of Ali (r.a.). None of the sectarians tried to answer
me. Their response was limited to letters in which they
tried to abuse me. So I will go on after quoting from some
more of the people they are supposed to respect if they are
Shias of Ali (r.a.):
"Abdullah bin Ahmed, in Zawaid al-Musnad narrates from Hasan
bin Zayd bin Hasan: My father narrated from his father who
reported from Ali, r.a., that he (Ali r.a.) Said: I was with
the Prophet, pbuh, when Abu Bakr and 'Umar emerged from in
front of us. He (the Prophet, pbuh, said: O Ali! These two
are the leaders of all the young and old people of Paradise
after the messengers and the prophets."
"Imam Muhammad narrates from Ibn Abi Hafsa that he said: I
asked Muhammad bin Ali (Baqir) and Jafar bin Muhammad
(Sadiq) about Abu Bakr and 'Umar and both said that Abu Bakr
and Umar were ' Adil (just) imams; we love them and despise
I responded to the abusive attacks on Khalid ibn al-Waleed
(r.a.) by the sectarians. I pointed out that the title of
Saifullah (sword of Allah) was given to Khalid (r.a.) by the
Prophet, pbuh, himself. I noted out that though the Prophet
(pbuh) rejected Khalid's (r.a.) action against the Banu
Jadhima, he did NOT reject Khalid (r.a.) and in fact
appointed him to command Islamic forces in various fields.
The Prophet's (pbuh) understood Khalid (r.a.) as a powerful
force for Islam and the greatest Islamic general of all
times. The Prophet's (pbuh) vision was true and Khalid
(r.a.) combined intense spirituality and tremendous military
abilities to carry out some of the greatest victories of
Islam, including Ajnadin which changed the course of
The Sectarians, however, are not true followers of Muhammad
(pbuh). They are followers of Ali (r.a.) (an imagined Ali,
r.a., whom they have manufactured through fabricated
hagiography as a man who never made a mistake). Hence these
people do not accept the Prophet's (pbuh) decision that
Khalid (r.a.) is the sword of Allah. Again they are going
against Ali, r.a., the real Ali, r.a., because when ALI WAS
SENT TO REIMBURSE THE PEOPLE OF BANU JADHIMA , Ali, r.a.,
did not say a WORD AGAINST KHALID (r.a.). In fact Ali, r.a.,
never spoke against Khalid (r.a.) because he could see that
the Prophet (pbuh) saw a great future for Khalid (r.a.) as
the leader of Islamic armies. (Remember that in early Islam,
one had to be a great Muslim to be put in command of Islamic
armies. It was not a generalship which one got just by being
a good soldier.)
Now, our sectarians, faced with Khalid saifullah (r.a.) at
Ajnadin and the conquest of Damascus, started another smear
campaign. This time their story is that Khalid (r.a.) did
great wrong in killing Malik ibn Nuwaira. Some reports
indicate that after killing Ibn Nuwaira, Khalid (r.a.)
married his widow. Some sectarians are shameless enough to
claim that this was rape! ( Naudhoobillahe min zalik. Naqle
kufr, kufr nabashad..)
Let us take our readers through the story of Malik ibn
Nuwaira to help them see how the sectarians distort the
truth and how they lie and fabricate in their attempts to
abuse the Sahaba:
Readers should remember that the chiefs of Arabia wanted to
crush nascent Islam through the "apostacy movement" which
was led by a series of false prophets about the time Prophet
Muhammad (pbuh) passed away. It was a time of great danger
for Islam. Owing to the heroism and incredible military
skills of Khalid (r.a.) the powerful uprisings were crushed.
[Here we do not see Ali, r.a., taking any important role in
the tremendous battles which took place.]
As the Islamic forces advanced, some of the rebels had
second thoughts and started retreating. One such group led
by Malik bin Nuwaira was captured by Khalid's (r.a.) forces.
Tabari narrates in his Tarikh that "it was a bitter cold
night" and Khalid (r.a.) gave the call to "warm your
prisoners." In the idiom of the Banu Kinana, this also means
"kill your prisoners." Among those killed was Ibn Nuwaira.
In fact he was killed by Zarar bin al-Azur (r.a.), one of
the companions of the Prophet (pbuh). Khalid (r.a.) rushed
to stop the killing but it was too late. (According to
Owing to the honesty of our narrators, we are told that
there was dissent among Khalid's (r.a.) troops concerning
the incident. Abu Qatada (r.a.), one of the companions of
the Prophet (pbuh) was so distressed that he left the army
without permission and went and complained to Abu Bakr
(r.a.), the Caliph. Tabari also narrates that some of the
troops claimed that Ibn Nuwaira had embraced Islam and hence
his killing was doubly reprehensible. Others seem to have
disagreed strongly. [It is this difference of opinion during
war time which is honestly narrated by our historians and
which provides fuel to the sectarians' fire.]
Tabari also narrates that Umar (r.a) objected strongly to
the killing of Ibn Nuwaira and urged Abu Bakr (r.a.) to
remove Khalid (r.a.) from command of the army. Abu Bakr
(r.a.) listened to both sides of the story and ruled that
Khalid (r.a.) had made a mistake but he accepted Khalid's
(r.a) explanation and decided to keep him in command of the
army. [Umar, r.a., based his position on one witness, whose
witness was apparently not supported by the rest of the army
[Incidentally this, among many other incidents, takes the
wind out of the sectarian story that Abu Bakr and 'Umar,
Allah be pleased with both, were always united and were a
"party" among the Muslims. These were two powerful
personalities and disagreed strongly on tactics.)
ABU BAKR's r.a., WISDOM in accepting Khalid's, r.a.
explanation turned out to be right. In the tremendous
battles which followed against the Banu Hanifa and Masailama
kazzab (the false prophet), Khalid's (r.a.) achievements
were so great that few human beings can be compared to
MARRIAGE WITH CAPTIVE WOMEN: The sectarians blame Khalid
(r.a.) for marrying the widow of Ibn Nuwaira. Such marriage
is taught by the Qur'an itself. See references to "those
whom your right hands possess." The purpose of such
marriages was to heal the wounds of war and to bring the
"enemy" into the family. Khalid (r.a.) was only doing what
Allah has permitted.
In one of the victories of Khalid (r.a.) against Masailama
kazzab, a woman was captured whom hazrat Ali (r.a.) married
and she became the mother of his son Muhammad who came to be
known as Muhammad ibn al-Hanfiyya. (See Al-Bidaya wa
un-Nihayya, vol.6., by ibn Kathir, chapter on Malik ibn
Here we see Ali, r.a., doing something which the sectarians
are blaming Khalid, r.a., for doing. Can these enemies of
Islam still claim to be the followers of Ali, r.a.? In fact,
according to the war laws of Islam, Khalid (r.a.) had more
of a right to marry the widow of his enemy, because he was
involved in that battle and hence the healing was even more
important. Ali (r.a.) was not even in the battle.
At the Conquest of Makka, one of the greatest events in the
life of the Prophet, pbuh, the two commanders of the Islamic
army were: The Prophet, pbuh, himself and Khalid, r.a.,:
" Allah's Apostle ordered Khalid bin Al-Walid to enter Mecca
from its upper part from Ka'da while the Prophet himself
entered from Kuda. " Sahih al-Bukhari
The title "saifullah", the Sword of Allah was given to
Khalid, r.a., by the Prophet, pbuh, himself, as he had a
vision of the battle against great odds in which three
Islamic commanders were martyred:
"The Prophet had informed the people of
the martyrdom of Zaid, Ja'far and Ibn Rawaha before the
news of their death reached. The Prophet said, "Zaid
took the flag (as the commander of the army) and was
martyred, then Ja'far took it and was martyred, and then
Ibn Rawaha took it and was martyred." At that time the
Prophet's eyes were shedding tears. He added, "Then
the flag was taken by a Sword amongst the Swords of
and Allah made them (i.e. the Muslims) victorious."
I hope the sectarians, if they have any Islam in them, will
apologize to the Muslim ummah.

FBI Ensnares Facebook User
Judge Puts Defendant in Mental Institution for Rant
by Sis. Karin Friedemann
In another heartbreaking story coming out of Raleigh, North
Carolina, a young Muslim man with no criminal record, Abdul
Basit Sheikh, is being prosecuted by the same US attorney
as Ziyad Yaghi
faced, Jason Kellhoffer. Sheikh is accused of
providing material support for a foreign terrorist
organization because he attempted to travel to Lebanon with
the intention of training to join Al-Nusra Front. His
parents described the 29-year-old Pakistani immigrant to the
US as "depressed" and said he spent most of his time in
front of the Internet. Sheikh had contributed many religious
and political comments to discussions on Facebook. He posted
a number of gory videos of things like pro-Assad soldiers
being executed, Mullah Omar of the Taliban and other famous
Islamic preachers calling for the destruction of America,
and had praised the Islamic fighters against Assad and the
In 2013, the FBI created a page in support of Islamic
militants. Sheikh joined and thus began an online friendship
with an FBI agent, who encouraged him to go to Syria and
join al-Nusra and facilitated his travel arrangements.
Sheikh booked a one-way ticket to Turkey for 9/5/13 but had
second thoughts and failed to show up at the airport. He
then informed the FBI agent that in November 2012, he
already traveled to Turkey in order to join the Free Syrian
Army but had become disillusioned with them because all they
wanted was money, thus he became more interested in
supporting the Caliphate. Via Face book private message, the
FBI agent offered to put Sheikh in touch with "a trusted
brother with JAN (Jabhat al-Nusra)," who was in actuality an
Online Covert Employee.
Sheikh then began to correspond via Skype with this FBI
employee, saying, "I want to help the mujahideen, in any way
I can." He stated his belief that al-Nusra was the most
disciplined group fighting Assad. The employee asked him if
he would be willing to fight, and encouraged him to travel
to Northern Lebanon for training before going to Syria.
On November 1, 2013, Sheikh bought a ticket to Beirut via
Canada and Turkey. On November 2, upon his arrival at the
airport gate, after being allowed to check in his bag and go
through security, he was arrested by law enforcement. On
November 12, the US government charged him with "Material
support for a Foreign Terrorist Organization."
What the indictment fails to mention was that the FBI agent
who communicated with him on Face book was posing as a
Syrian nurse, and that their messages contained romantic
content. A large part of his motivation for traveling was
"The Sheikh case points out the hypocrisy of prosecuting
people who support an anti-Assad group the government judged
as terrorists while the Obama administration favors other
fighters in the same bloody conflict," said Jeff Addicott,
director of the Center for Terrorism Law at St. Mary's
University in San Antonio.
On March 5, 2014, Sheikh told Federal Judge Terrence Boyle
that he wanted to replace his government-appointed lawyer
Joseph Gilbert with an attorney hired by his family, and
stated that he was being "physically and morally abused" in
"I am concerned about his competence," Gilbert said.
Prosecutor Jason Kellhoffer told Boyle that he saw no need
for a psychiatric exam at this time, and Boyle did not order
one. In June 2014, Sheikh was declared mentally competent to
However, nearly a year later, on January 7, 2015 Judge Boyle
suddenly ordered him to be involuntarily committed to a
mental institution about seven minutes into the competency
hearing, when Sheikh interrupted the proceedings, telling
the judge he was ready to tell a jury his story that day and
it was a story a US jury should hear.
He was not only concerned about his arrest at the
Raleigh-Durham International Airport in 2013 when he was
attempting to leave the country. Sheikh also argued that the
United States should pay reparations for war deaths in
Pakistan, his native country, Afghanistan and other parts of
the Middle East - "100 camels worth of monetary
compensation," reported Anne Blythe in the News
"In a series of run-on sentences, he talked about cluster
bombs, the pain he felt for Pakistanis killed in the
conflict, President Barack Obama, the U.S. attorney general,
his family, the government and his desire to be released
"If you're trying to make a record that you're not
competent, you're doing an excellent job," said Judge
"No, I'm competent," Sheikh exclaimed. "I have a right to
travel the world!"
Boyle ordered Sheikh to be involuntarily committed in a
hospital for 120 days for psychiatric treatment. He told
Sheikh he faced the possibility of the involuntary
administration of psychiatric drugs so that he might better
understand the seriousness of the charges against him.
"No thanks, no thanks," said Sheikh. "I am perfectly all
right. My belongings should be returned to me and I should
be allowed to leave this country."
In August of 2013, Thomas Walker the US Attorney for North
Carolina's Eastern District said he "made changes in his
staff" after a federal appeals said it was concerned with
the conduct of prosecutors. Judges on the 4th Circuit Court
of Appeals have publicly complained the offices did not turn
over evidence to defense attorneys.
While the heads of government departments were "transferred
out," lower rung prosecutors such as Kellhoffer continue to
engage in overzealous prosecution of idealistic Muslims who
pose no threat to the United States.
This should serve as a warning to be very careful about
anyone you meet online that seems to agree with all your

Jewish Sabbath Law & Death of 7 Jewish children +
Christian Preacher wanted $65 million for Private Jet.
by Sis. Aisha [Jamaat al-Muslimeen New York]
New York City - Saturday morning, on the Sabbath, the
Sassoon Family lost 7 children to a Brooklyn fire. The
mother and another child were able to escape. There was a
smoke alarm found in the basement but, nowhere else in the
home. Nearly an entire family has been wiped out. They still
have not been able to reach the father, who is out of town
According to Jewish Law, Jews are to abstain from using any
electrical or modern automation items during the Sabbath.
There are ways that they have gotten around this, such as
using an electric elevator that stops on each every floor
without them having to press the buttons, which would mean
using modern day automation. So, technically, they use the
automation but, then they don't. This is different from the
Amish, who completely abstain from any form of automation,
In the horrific fire, a hotplate was left on. It has been
stated that these hotplates are left on because it is more
convenient than leaving an oven on and they do not need to
touch the buttons to make any adjustments. Many Jewish homes
leave hotplates on during the entire Sabbath.
Hotplates have never been deemed safe, especially in college
dorms, because they can overload the circuits. These gadgets
are usually responsible for electrical fires. I do not think
that smoke alarms violate any Sabbath.
The Fire Commissioner Daniel Nigro is saying that the
hotplate malfunctioned and caused the fire. I smell a
Some Orthodox Jewish neighborhoods are very adamant about
the observation of their Sabbath. They force the gentiles,
living in close proximity, to observe their Sabbath, as
well. Government officials, including Black ones, have
kowtowed to these Jews who have forced people to park their
cars many blocks away from the area, thereby inconveniencing
people by having them wake up earlier than normal to drive
to work! They have been bullying the Caribbean population in
Crown Heights Brooklyn for years, which led to the famed
Crown Heights riots in the early 1990s.
Evil of Craving Wealth and Status by al-Haafidh ibn Rajab
"For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil." (1
Pastor Creflo Dollar, jr.
This past week, there was controversy when Pastor Creflo
Dollar, jr., began a mission to raise a whopping $65 million
dollars for a private jet plane. He had requested from his
parishioners stating that he would use the plain to spread
his money message all over the world.
He back tracked and stopped requesting the money after so
much backlash. He avoided his Bronx New York church to stay
out of the sight of the media, who was there. He also gives
sermons at his Atlanta mega church.
This is the same Rev. Creflo Dollar whose daughter, 15 years
old at the time, had him arrested for disciplining her with
a slap to the face. The charges were later dropped. There
seems to be some house cleaning needed there.
Creflo Dollar is one of those pastors who preaches about
prosperity. He says that God wants him to be wealthy and
that any money donated to him will come back to the donor
tenfold. This is reminiscent of Rev. Ike, parodied by
Richard Pryor on the Richard Pryor Show, and others. There
is a book that I have read called the Seed Money in Action
by John Hoshor and Jon P. Speller. It is a book rooted in
the Judeo-Christian beliefs.
The book is over 50 years old and states that any money
given in charity will come back to the giver of that money
ten fold. What I don't like about the book is that it
fosters giving just to get. Besides Biblical quotes, the
book talks about the mental blocks people have toward money.
It relays stories of people having no success with receiving
money for a trip or to buy something nice for themselves or
someone else. After speaking with the author, it is
determined that their mental block was that they believed
money was evil or dirty. After realizing that money is
simply a tool one uses to accomplish a goal then, they start
receiving money from people. They never ask people for it.
It just happens through natural circumstances.
Money is a tool. Muslims have a hang up about money, as
well. I am proud of our modesty, as a group but, we tend to
believe that money is evil when it is just a tool. A gun is
not evil but, a tool for self-defense. However, in the hands
of an evil person, a tool can be made to do evil things.
There are books such as The Evil of Craving Wealth and
Status by al-Haafidh ibn Rajab al-Hanbalee. The title is
reminiscent of the Biblical verse about loving money: it is
anti-greed, not anti-money.
In America, it is so difficult to not think about money when
you are the one struggling to survive without much of it. It
is easy for people to chide you for talking about it so
much. But, I think these "poor listeners" misunderstand.
Just like Rita Davenport said, " Money isn't
everything...but it ranks right up there with oxygen."
However, talk of making money "hand over fist" has no place
in any House of God. Religious leaders are supposed to help
people deal with and overcome the obstacles we face,
including poverty. The imam or preacher is supposed to worry
about treating the soul, not people's bank accounts!
People go from one extreme to another in this country. There
is never any middle road. There is nothing wrong with
wanting to become financially independent so that you can
only depend on yourself, instead of others for a handout.
Islam is a way of life that stresses balance. Sometimes,
hardship is caused by an imbalance in the way we think or
There are people who seem to shun money or any talk about it
and yet, are dependent on others for it. They feel
spiritually superior to anyone who has worked hard for
his/her wealth, which Allah has blessed them to have.
These prosperity preachers are not worried about saving
souls. They are worried about their big pay day. They are
not trying to rattle the homosexuals. They want money from
as many people as they can get. According to them, the gates
to Hell-fireare closed and everybody is going to Heaven,
sinner or not! "Offend no one and you will get more money"
is their financial formula to their prosperity.
Unfortunately, their parishioners don't all experience the
prosperity being preached.
Addressing Farmers in Phalia and the strategic Fishermen's
Community of Gwadur
"....wage a war against poverty, ignorance, price hike,
unemployment and Electricity load shedding." [JI leader and
Senator Sirajul Haq.]
Farmers to stage Long March if their problems not solved
LAHORE, Mar. 17; Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Senator
Sirajul Haq, has said that if the government did not solve
the problems of the growers, the farmers from all the
provinces would jointly march to Islamabad.
Addressing a big Kisan Convention at Phalia on Tuesday, he
said that the farming community all over the country was
facing difficult times because of high costs of agricultural
inputs, high electricity tariff and load shedding. The
farmers were not getting due return for their crops. He
noted that India was giving subsidy to the farmers on
agricultural inputs while the Pakistan government was
creating problems for the farmers by importing agricultural
products from India.
The JI chief appealed to all the political parties not to
fight among themselves and instead, wage a war against
poverty, ignorance, price hike, unemployment and load
shedding. He reiterated that the JI after coming into power
would give subsidy on five items including fertilizer, seed,
pesticides, electricity and diesel to the agriculturists.
He said it was a matter of shame that the government had
failed to protect the minorities and Churches. He said that
most of the security men were on VVIP duty while the masses
were at the mercy of the criminals and terrorists. He said
that Pakistan had been established in the name of Islam but
the rulers had drifted it away from Deen and created a class
He said that a few families had been ruling the country for
the last 68 years. They had been amassing wealth and
building properties abroad. The rulers had shackled the
nation and the country in huge loans secured from the IMF
and World Bank on most humiliating terms and the nation had
to pay huge amounts in interest on the foreign loans. He
said that the prices of energy, and other items were raised
every now and then to collect revenue for meeting the huge
budget deficit which led to price spiral. He said the
common man did not get clean drinking water while the ruling
elite enjoyed every facility in their palaces.
Senator Sirajul Haq said that he wanted to open the doors of
the President House, the Prime Minister and the assemblies
to the common man, but added that to achieve this end, the
masses would have to say farewell to the vaderas [feudal
lords] and capitalists and repose trust in the honest and
competent leaders of the JI.
Speaking on the occasion, JI Punjab chief Dr Syed Waseem
Akhtar, he would continue to raise the voice of the farmers
in the Punjab Assembly till their rights were secured.
The Kisan Board Pakistan chief Sadiq Khan Khakwani, in his
address, the kisans would stage Long March from Sadiqabad to
Islamabad in October next for their rights. He demanded

General Musharraf's Role and the Takeover of Pakistan by US
Murder and Extortion Unlimited. Mafia Boss Altaf Hussain
Living Comfortably in London.
Karachi in darkness and soaked in blood.
by Asif Haroon Raja.
Altaf Hussain, founder of MQM in 1984, and its chief was
given political asylum in London after he fled from Karachi
hospital in May 1992 because of life threats from his
colleagues in his party. He was later awarded British
nationality in 2002 and allowed to establish MQM
International Secretariat in London. All the runaway MQM
leaders involved in dozens of criminal cases in Pakistan
were allowed to hire houses in posh area of London and are
leading an affluent life. For the upkeep of their high
lifestyle, MQM Rabita Committee with its HQ at Nine Zero in
Karachi channelizes the needed funds. It is alleged that
biggest source of earning is extortion money. MQM ministers
have always vied for Port & Shipping Ministry and for Home
Ministry. The then DG Rangers Sindh and now DG ISI Lt Gen
Rizwan Akhtar had deposed before the Supreme Court in 2013
that during Babar Khan Ghauri's prolonged tenure, 19000 NATO
containers carrying arms went missing.
Since 1992, Altaf has been remote controlling his party from
London and giving regular sermons on telephone to his party
workers. The MQM's militancy was first jolted during 1992
military operation, but it couldn't achieve much progress
since the entire leadership went underground and arms dumps
couldn't be recovered. Moreover, the judicial and
socio-economic prongs as well as the political will could
not keep in step with the military prong. MQM's militancy
was contained to quite an extent in the 1995-1996
Police-Rangers operation headed by retired Gen Naseerullah
In that operation, 250-300 hardcore MQM militants were
killed by the police, which broke the back of MQM militancy.
MQM was forced to make South Africa as base of operation for
its target killers. They were provided multiple passports
and were called to Karachi for short-term specific ventures.
MQM target killer Saulat Mirza confessed that 80-1000 target
killers reside in South Africa. He also disclosed that MQM
activists received training in India. The MQM also made
Dubai as its economic hub centre.
The MQM once again ran into trouble after the murder of
revered philanthropist Hakim Said on October 17, 1998. Nine
MQM workers involved in his murder were arrested by DIG
Farooq Amin Qureshi and the court sentenced them to death.
Sindh government was sacked and Governor Rule imposed.
However, once the MQM rebounded back to power in 2001, Sindh
High Court acquitted all the accused and later the Supreme
Court also upheld the acquittal.
After Gen Musharraf took over power in October 1999, sagging
fortunes of the MQM started swinging upwards. When Musharraf
submitted to all the demands of Washington after 9/11, Altaf
Hussain hastened to write a letter to the then British PM
Tony Blair offering him 'limitless resources' for human
intelligence to monitor activities of Madrassas,
fundamentalists and Taliban in Pakistan. He also sought
disbandment of ISI, cautioning Blair that the spy agency
will produce many Osama bin Ladens and Taliban in future.
The MQM became stronger during Gen Musharraf's nine-year
rule. MQM Haqiqui under Amer Khan and Afaq Ahmad was
pulverized and the two leaders jailed in 2004. Local
government system suited MQM the most which enabled the MQM
to gain control over almost 95% of port city. Ishrat ul Abad
installed as Governor in 2001 is still in chair and is of
great advantage to the party.
MQM and PPP were the biggest beneficiaries of infamous NRO
issued by Gen Musharraf on October 5, 2007, which pardoned
thousands of MQM leaders and activists involved in heinous
crimes and dozens of PPP leaders involved in mega
corruption. MQM shared power with PPP from 2008 till
February 2013 and further bolstered its financial as well as
its political strength in urban Sindh.
During MQM's hey days, the MQM goons went on a killing spree
against police officers involved in two operations in the
1990s. 300 police officers who had taken part in operation
cleanup in Karachi in 1992 were eliminated one by one. Only
SP Ch Aslam, later promoted DIG, was spared after he sought
pardon, but was killed in 2013 since he had arrested Saulat
Mirza. Likewise, over 100 police officers who had taken part
in 1995-96 operation in Karachi were also killed by MQM
thugs. Other than the police, thousands of innocent people
were gunned down by unknown target killers between 2002 and
2013, but not a single culprit was arrested and convicted.
The families of martyred have been abandoned by the State
and the killers allowed to roam about freely.
The MQM has been in good books of USA, UK and India since
its birth. Altaf and other MQM leaders based in London came
on the wrong side of British government after London
Metropolitan Police and Scotland Yard suspected them of
being involved in the murder of senior MQM leader Dr Imran
Farooq and subjected them to interrogation. They were also
accused of money laundering worth millions of pound
sterling. MQM Secretariat in Edgware and Altaf's mansion in
Mill Hill were raided which led to recovery of bags of
unaccounted foreign currency.
For the first time after May 2013 elections, the party lost
its blackmailing tactics since the PML-N didn't require its
political support in the Centre; so was the case with the
PPP in Sindh. There on it has been on a downhill journey. As
a result of PTI's political activism in Karachi, which again
was seen as a threat to MQM's vote bank, Altaf delivered an
inflammatory speech on phone. He exhorted his workers to cut
the fingers of burger type supporters of PTI. Imran Khan
held MQM responsible for the murder of PTI senior worker
Zahra Shahid, who was targeted in front of her house in
DHA-4 on May 18, 2013. Her murderers Kaleem and Rashid
belonging to MQM have been arrested and are being tried.
London Metropolitan Police received unprecedented numbers of
complaints from Pakistan, Britain and elsewhere asking it as
to why it was not taking notice of incitement of violence by
British national Altaf Hussain? He was accordingly charged
and cautioned to control his reckless behavior and not to
incite violence in future. Once the noose tightened, he and
other party leaders cried out that the London Police and
British government were conspiring to kill him. Unlike in
Karachi where the MQM has the power to paralyse the city, it
couldn't carry out any sort of violent act in UK except for
propaganda war which also boomeranged.
Reportedly, mystery of Dr Imran Farooq murder case will soon
be solved since hired killers have been traced to be in the
custody of Pakistani security agencies. Of late, the
government is seriously contemplating to provide full
details of the two prime suspects to Scotland Yard who
killed Dr Imran. Other players are MQM MNA in Karachi who
received orders from MQM International Secretariat in 2010
to arrange murder of Dr Imran. He had deputed Khalid Shamim,
who in turn tasked Hammad Siddiqui. The latter picked up
professional killers Mohsin Ali and Kashif Khan and sent
them to London on student visa. The pair was briefed by an
MQM official Haroon in London about the daily routine of Dr
Imran, who was stabbed to death in front of his house on
September 16, 2010.
Soon after committing the murder, the killers spoke to
Khalid Shamim on phone saying that they had accomplished the
mission. They were told to board a flight to Colombo to
mislead the investigators. After two days, Shamim having
planned to kill them phoned them to return to Karachi. This
conversation was taped by Pak intelligence Agency. Once they
arrived at Karachi airport, they were whisked away from the
tarmac by the agencies. Ongoing probe is giving nightmares
to Altaf. The dilemma is that the party cannot survive
without Altaf, and the latter can neither return to
Pakistan, nor can live safely in London.
On one hand MQM's hold over the city is weakening, and on
the other its Supremo's credibility has been dented because
of charges of Dr Imran's murder, money laundering and
accusations made by his former wife Faiza Gabol in her
divorce case. There are reports of cracks within the party,
which had become the principal cause of Dr Imran's murder.
Mounting internal and external pressure has upset Altaf so
immensely that he seems to have lost his sense of coherence.
Feeling increasingly insecure, he keeps changing his
goalposts in each of his telephonic address and goes
reckless. He is past master in theatrics, but other than his
diehard followers, who also get embarrassed by his cheap
histrionics, great majority loathe his lengthy and
mind-numbing jumbled speeches.
Terrorised media can dare not cut short his long-winded
telephonic addresses. Altaf calls the TV newsroom directly
asking them to give him live airtime. Any media house
defying his orders is attacked by MQM goons. Dozens of
journalists and media persons have been killed in Karachi.
Religious and political opponents and police officials also
remain on the hit list. Worst affected have been Urdu
speaking community opposing Altaf's policies.
In the wake of high spate of target killings and kidnappings
in Karachi and Sindh government's inability to rein in the
criminals, former Supreme Court Chief Justice Iftikhar had
taken suo moto action and established Supreme Court Bench in
2013 to take stock of the situation. The JIT presented a
report to him, stating that the MQM, PPP, ANP and Sunni
Tehriq had militant wings and were patronizing the
criminals. Chief Justice directed the concerned parties to
abolish the armed wings, but no action was taken and
criminal acts continued unabated.
In September 2013, in a meeting chaired by PM Nawaz Sharif
and attended by Army Chief Gen Raheel Sharif and heads of
all Sindh political parties, it was mutually decided to
restore peace in Karachi by launching intelligence driven
Rangers-Police operation against all criminal elements and
giving enhanced powers to the Rangers. Owing to
politicization of Sindh police and dysfunctional
administrative machinery, the progress has been slow but
gradually the law and order situation improved. Besides
getting hold of criminals of PPP, TTP and others, law
enforcers also tightened the noose around MQM's militant
wing involved in target killings and other crimes. However,
whenever any action is directed against MQM workers, MQM
leaders raise hue and cry saying that Muhajirs are being
victimized. They threaten to go their way if pushed against
Rauf Rajput, sector in-charge Mehmoodabad after his arrest
by the police on February 8, 2015 revealed that he and his
accomplices were involved in May 12, 2007 killings of 166
persons in Karachi on the occasion of arrival of former
Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry. He disclosed the secret
places in the city where arms were dumped for target
killing. Rizwan Qureshi, an MQM worker, arrested by Rangers
on June 22, 2013, confessed before the JIT that fire in
Baldia town garment factory on September 11, 2012 was not
accidental but deliberate. He disclosed that fire in factory
was lit by sector in-charge of Baldia Town Rehman Bhola and
his accomplices on the instructions of Hammad Siddiqui,
in-charge Karachi Tanzeemi Committee, after the factory
owners refused to pay Rs 200 million extortion money. As a
consequence, 289 people were burnt to death.
The matter had been put in cold freezer by the then PPP-MQM
coalition government in Sindh on the plea that fire occurred
due to short circuiting. The case was presented before Sindh
Court in February 6, 2015, but Rizwan disappeared
mysteriously one month later. The case has once again been
opened on March 16, 2015 and JIT is reinvestigating it on
the basis of fresh evidence collected. It will submit the
report within one month.
This revelation of Bhola's involvement in factory fire was
also made by Umair Siddiqui after his arrest on February 20,
2015. He also disclosed that he had constituted a death
squad comprising 23 target killers on instructions of
Karachi Tanzeemi Committee in-charge Hammad Siddiqui. He
confessed that his squad killed 120 MQM opponents. Umair
confessed purchasing weapons for MQM militant wing from an
arms dealer in Quetta. He unveiled that 250-300 target
killers were hiding in shelters around Nine Zero.
It was being widely contemplated that MQM's mandate in urban
Sindh has been gained through manipulation and under the
barrel of the gun. Some TV channels had aired footages of
armed MQM thugs inside polling stations in Karachi stuffing
ballot boxes during 2008 elections. This perception has now
been reaffirmed by Umair Siddiqui. He divulged in the
interrogation that during May 2013 elections, 60-70% workers
of Gulshan-e-Jauhar sector cast fake votes in favor of
Faisal Sabzwari in Maymar sector on his orders. He said that
he had summoned the presiding officers and gave them 15-20
ballot boxes for each polling station in the constituency.
He also revealed that Rabita Committee deputy convener Anees
Qaimkhani had convened a meeting at Khurshid Begum Memorial
Hall (adjacent to Nine Zero) in 2008, which was attended by
Hammad Siddiqui and all sector and joint sector in-charges;
and they were directed by Anees to expedite killings on
The real bombshell fell when the Rangers on the basis of
intelligence carried out search operation of Nine Zero at
6AM on March 11, 2015 and arrested criminals against whom
criminal cases of grave nature had already been registered
and among them were most wanted criminals like Faisal
Mahmood, nickname Mota, killer of journalist Babar Wali who
had been convicted and given death sentence by the court.
MQM Rabita Committee leader Amer Khan (former Haqiqi leader)
was also detained since he was sitting besides the
criminals. He has a close connection with militant wing of
MQM. In addition, 130 prohibited bore weapons ex NATO stock,
3000 live ammunition and explosives were also seized. 29
persons were produced before the court and have been
remanded for 90 days for further interrogation by
Journalist Babar Wali employed by Geo TV had come in bad
books of MQM because of his negative reporting about its
activities. He was gunned down by unknown assassins on
January 13, 2011. The JIT comprising five top agencies
investigated the case and concluded that Faisal Mota
belonging to MQM was the mastermind behind the murder. 23
witnesses were listed but only six agreed to testify for
fear of being killed. They all were killed one by one
between January 2011 and November 2012. Eight accused were
arrested who confessed before the JIT that they had been
ordered by their boss Adeel alias Agha Murtaza based in
South Africa. He had directed Faisal Mota to kill Babar.
Mota and Zeeshan were awarded death sentence in absentia
while other 8 accused given life sentences. Mota was finally
arrested on March 11, 2015 from Nine Zero. Zeeshan is still
Finding no excuse to justify presence of convicted and most
wanted criminals and target killers and prohibited weapons
in Nine Zero and adjacent houses, and failing to deny or
dissociate from them, Altaf and other MQM leaders besides
giving strike call, embarked upon a calculated vilification
campaign against the Rangers and Army to play up the old
theme of political victimization and also to distract
attention. While making uproar over the killing of MQM
worker Faisal Shah by Rangers, they came out with bizarre
story that the Rangers had brought weapons hidden in
blankets to discredit MQM. Altaf used highly abhorrent and
derogatory language against the Rangers and Army,
threatening Rangers officers that they had become history.
Col Tahir of Rangers who had led the raid has registered FIR
The day Nine Zero was raided; ATC in Karachi issued black
warrants for convicted Saulat Mirza involved in murder of
Shahid Hamid, MD KESC, his driver Ashraf Brohi and guard
Akbar Khan on July 5, 1997 in DHA Karachi. Hamid's widow had
to flee Pakistan because of threats to her life. Mirza was
tried in a court and sentenced to death on May 24, 1999. He
was released on parole in 2004, but was again arrested by
deceased DIG Aslam. He dodged the gallows because of his
patrons and later due to the moratorium imposed in 2008
which remained enforced till December 2014.
During his internment, Mirza masterminded and ordered
killings of 40 police officers and jail officials
interfering in his work. To detach him from his network, he
was shifted to Mach jail in April 2014, much to the chagrin
of MQM high command. When his death warrants were issued
and he was to be hanged on January 7, 2015, the federal
government wilted under MQM pressure and halted the
execution. Like many, Balqis Ashraf, widow of slain driver
Ashraf Brohi is also apprehensive that Mirza may again dodge
the gallows on March 19 because of MQM pressure.
