"There must be a God otherwise how would it survive?",
said the Russian!
By Kaukab Siddique
There is an old story that when a Russian diplomat came for
the first time to Pakistan and saw the mess it is in, he
said 'there must be a god, otherwise how would it
That was years back. Sadly, today it is much worse.
Small groups of secularists are running the country. Some
don't even know how to pray.
The tiny shia minority is boldly challenging the vast
majority and carries out public rallies which insult the
beliefs of Muslims.
The even smaller Qadiani (Ahmadi) minority was declared
non-Muslim by Bhutto, a stark secularist, but is
flourishing, running a whole town and its own media. They
complain all over the world that they are being
East Pakistan won the elections but Bhutto would not let
the Bengalis rule. They protested and when the protests
became widespread, the army was sent in to crush them.
The army committed atrocities, treating the Bengalis like
non-Muslims. The politically deaf generals could not hear
the adhan rising from a thousand mosques in Dhaka.
Bengali extremists started slaughtering non-Bengalis and
linked up with Indian army.
The army was outnumbered and could not be supplied from
Finally the army surrendered to the Indian army, a first
in Muslim history.
Bhutto made a deal with India. The army came back safely
while the Bengalis supporting Pakistan were abandoned.
Bangladesh came into being.
Pakistani politicians made deals with America and after

force flew against mujahideen from within Pakistan.

behest, the army invaded Swat and expelled the entire

Waziristan where Osama supporters were embedded. Munawar
Hasan opposed these moves but the army finally submitted and
attacked Waziristan. The entire population was expelled. The
fighters retreated into Afganistan where they were hit by
the US air force.
The tragedy in Kashmir has exploded. Huge Indian army is
violating human rights. Pakistan has done nothing despite
ongoing rallies by Jamaate Islami.
Pakistan is surviving owing to the stabilizing role of
Jamaate Islami which now has public support and even women
have joined it by the thousands. In the meantime army
atrocities in Baluchistan have destabilized the province.
Some elements have become openly anti-Pakistan.
May Allah have mercy on Pakistan. More and more people are
becoming practicing Muslims but power is not in their hands.
However the heritage of martyrs and mujahideen is still
Long live Pakistan.

minor mutual differences.
Senator Siraj said Kashmir and Palestine were the burning
issues of Muslim world and there was need to hold an urgent

part of the United State's long-standing efforts to "choke"

The weird case of Sharpton, Justice and Money.
By Sis. Aisha (Jamaat al-Muslimeen)
On July 27th, it became known that Jennifer McLeggan, a
registered nurse and mother of a little girl, was being
racially harassed by her Valley Stream, Long Island
neighbors: a White retired cop, his drug dealing son and his
son's girlfriend. They have shot bb pellets at McLeggan's
home and have thrown dog feces and dead squirrels on her
The city had not picked up her garbage for months! She has
called the sanitation department to arrange for her garbage
to be pick up only for them not to arrive at all. It is
believed that this retired cop used his connections to stop
her garbage pickup. McLeggan had been assessed numerous
violations for not removing her trash but, the city has
since cleared those violations, after the rallies of support
She had signs up in her window notifying people about this
harassment just in case she met with foul play.
The Nation of Islam (NOI), 100 Blacks in Law Enforcement Who
Care, even the Crips Gang came to her defense. The Crips
Gang stood guard over her home. Community Cop co-host
Michael Greys organized two rallies where each rally
numbered over 4000 people in attendance. Yet, after all of
this support from the people, mostly from outside of Valley
Stream, which has become increasingly Caribbean over the
years, it must now cease and desist.
This is because, unfortunately, Rev. Al Sharpton and his
attorney Benjamin Crump are now involved. According to
Michael Greys, when he went to visit Jennifer McLeggan, her
father told him that she is currently in conference with her
attorney. That is code for she is incommunicado. Greys also
stated that the NOI and all others involved with drawing
attention and support for McLeggan in this matter were told
that their services would no longer be needed.
Michael Greys stated that the Sharpton camp has a history of
using divide and conquer tactics within police-shooting
victims' families. He mentioned that Sean Bell's wife had
been isolated from Bell's parents so that the parents could
get the money. Greys also stated that the wife of slain
Black officer Omar Edwards had been isolated from his
mother. The wife even had to move out of the home! After
Edwards' mother became involved with Sharpton, Michael Greys
said, that when he last spoke to her, she told him that she
would love to connect with him, since 100 Blacks in Law
Enforcement had always supported her family, but, that she
could no longer do so.
Apparently, Sharpton's goal is to get the money, not
justice. If some family members express interest in getting
the money, he will work with them. When Sharpton works with
a family there is an agreement they must sign making him
their representative. He will handle all of the
communication on behalf of the victim and/or the victim's
Now, a very well organized community effort to support and
protect this woman has been thwarted! Shai'tan wins again!
Or, did three years of harassment cause Jennifer McLeggan to
This is another example of how Black selected "leaders" work
with the devil. Allah allows us to experience these trials
or tests to strengthen our spirit. He guides us through
these trials, if we seek His help. But, Shai'tan, the Great
Deceiver, comes in many forms and he often appears as a
reliever to those of us who have fought long battles.
Shai'tan hears us when we cry out to Allah, too! We have to
recognize Shai'tan and that is so difficult to do when
dealing with hypocrites.
What is going to happen is that McLeggan will receive a
financial settlement from the city, as a result of
sanitation department misconduct, among other things.
However, no wrongs will be righted although, her neighbors
were videotaped committing these crimes, masked and
unmasked. Anyway, the taxpayer has always paid for the
misconduct of government employees, such as police officers,
which is why they can behave criminally with impunity.

This is fourth of a series of episodes on the health

This episode is on the Islamic Model for the Control of

book, I had developed a model for prevention and control of
Sex Transmitted diseases, especially HIV/AIDS which has been
one of the top killers in the world in last 25 years based
on Quran and Sunnah from a medical point of view. I have

Hate crimes against Muslims in India
Online event hosted by the IAMC brings activists together.
Hate crimes against Muslims in India became a hot topic.
The Indian American Muslim Council scheduled an online
celebration featuring Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal as the
keynote speaker who is a prominent human rights activists
from India and the US.
The online event titled, "Solidarity in Times of COVID-19,"
was intended to celebrate India's Independence Day but was
marked with high energy and rousing speeches punctuated with
resolutions and pledges to uphold India's pluralistic
Rep. Pramila Jayapal, called for India's Independence Day to
be "a time to reaffirm the democratic, pluralistic
principles on which our countries were founded." Bemoaning
that "hate crimes are threatening Muslims in India", she
took pride in "speaking out for the rights of minorities in
India" since she took office.
"I also spoke out against Prime Minister Modi's Citizenship
Law that excludes Muslim migrants from a new pathway to
citizenship, an unprecedented break from India's secular
constitution," Rep. Jayapal said. "Taken together with the
National Register of Citizens, I fear that this citizenship
law could be used to prevent Muslim migrants from becoming
citizens and voting," she added.
"If there is anything I have found as an immigrant, advocate
and woman of color, it is that nothing is stronger than
committed and passionate people working together to do good
and deliver justice....I will not stop fighting for justice
for Muslims here and in India and I know you won't

ACLU makes another loud call for the Department of Homeland
Security to be Dismantled.
The ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) sent mass email
out this past week seeking support in their continued call
for the US government to dismantle the Department of
Homeland Security. The ACLU, an organization dedicated to
civil liberties, civil rights, and the rule of law, says the
DHS is "not capable of acting consistently with the
Here is a copy of their email:
"In 2002, we called the initial blueprints for the
Department of Homeland Security "constitutionally bankrupt."
For nearly 20 years now, we've seen many of our warnings
about DHS become tragic realities. That is why we are
calling for the dismantling of DHS now." Read more on the
critical reasons for this in a piece by ACLU's executive
director Anthony Romero here.
To be absolutely clear, let's look at what the DHS has done.
- Surveilled Black Lives Matter activist circles
- Separated children from their parents at our borders - a
tragedy we continue to litigate
- Descended into mosques and community centers to infiltrate
- Shot and killed people across the border
- Monitored protests using fusion center intelligence sharing hubs
- The short history of the DHS is filled with violence, fear
mongering, and a lack of oversight. And now this
department's horrific tactics are being used in cities
across our country, deployed as President Trump's personal militia.
- Something must be done. Dismantling this behemoth federal
agency - breaking it apart into smaller ones and shrinking
its allocation of federal dollars - will allow more
effective oversight, accountability, and public transparency.
Years of chaos and impunity demonstrate the failure of the
DHS experiment, and it's time for change. Read more on the
urgency of dismantling DHS and be ready for the fight forward.

EGLE vs. Eagle
Bald eagle wins duel with state's $950 drone, sending it to
the bottom of Lake Michigan.
In the battle for air supremacy, a bald eagle just proved
that technology is no match for the living creature.
The eagle "launched an airborne attack" against a drone
operated by the state's Department of Environment, Great
Lakes and Energy (also known as EGLE).
The bout between EGLE and Eagle took place over the waters
of Lake Michigan.
The sky-scuffle began soon after the drone operator, Hunter
King pressed the "Go Home" button signaling to the EGLE
drone to come home. Hunter looked up and saw the two
"twirling furiously". Eagle tore off EGLE drone's propeller,
sending it 162 feet through the air and crashing into Lake
A couple who witnessed the
sky-fight said Eagle appeared uninjured as he flew off
victoriously. Mr. King and the couple searched for EGLE
drone but could not find it. Several days later, EGLE's
Unmanned Aircraft Systems coordinator Arthur Ostaszewski
brought a kayak and searched two hours for poor EGLE drone
but found nothing.
Data from the drone technology reveals that EGLE drone sent
27 warning notifications when the fight began, one
indicating the propeller was torn off. EGLE drone's final
message to the world said it was falling at a speed of 30
feet per second before hitting the water.
The EGLE team, who said the eagle may have started the fight
because its name was misspelled on the drone, asked the
Department of Natural Resources to reprimand the eagle in
some way, but the Dept. said it has no authority to arrest
or issue citations to wildlife.
After suffering this humiliating loss, the state agency is
looking into ways to prevent future attacks from the eagle
Israeli Warplanes Bomb Gaza, Injure Children, Women
Two children and two women were injured in an Israeli
bombardment of the besieged Gaza Strip early Saturday, the
Palestinian news agency WAFA reported.
An Israeli warplane fired two missiles at an area east of
Bureij refugee camp in the central Gaza Strip injuring a
3-year-old baby girl, an 11-year-old boy, and a woman. They
were rushed to hospital in nearby Deir al-Balah.
Another woman was injured and homes damaged in a different
air attack on a location in Beit Hanoun in the northern Gaza
Strip. The woman was also taken to the hospital.
This is the third day of Israeli aerial attacks and
artillery shelling on the Gaza Strip, which have caused
damage to property and no harm to residents other than
causing panic among the population.
Israel has also imposed collective punishment on the
besieged Gaza Strip and its two-million population by
closing the only commercial crossing with Gaza, banning
entry of badly needed fuel, and cutting in half the fishing
area Gaza fishermen are allowed to sail in to earn a living.

Blasphemy and Islamic Law.
DEATH SENTENCE FOR TIJJANIYAH SINGER
By Abdulkabir Oyemomi
Yahya Sheriff Aminu was one of the least popular artiste
among Northern Musicians ( Islamic or otherwise) before the
judgement of upper Sharia Court in Kano on the 1st of
August,2020, where he was found guilty of blasphemy for a
song allegedly composed and circulated through WhatsApp in
March, 2020. In the song, he was alleged to have berated the
status of the noble prophet Muhammad (s.a.w) by derogatorily
placing the Senagele clerik and founder of Tijjaniyah sect
over and above prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). He was
quoted to have said , among other things,that " Sheik
Ibrahim Niasse was bigger than prophet Muhammad!"
Sheriff was convicted based on section 382(b) of Kano penal
code of 2000.
Blasphemy in Islam is when a person disrespects or abuses
important personalities in Islamic religion, the worst being
abuse or disrespect for Allah or his Messengers , which
offence attracts death penalty.
Whereas many name seekers and tabloid as well as fault
finders media like Sahara Reporters and social media false
advocates of right protection have resumed noises on what
they are good at( condemnation of anything Islamic they have
zero knowledge about), Kano State council of Jummat Mosque
Imams has urged the governor of Kano State, Abdullahi
Ganduje to sign the death warrant of the 22year old Yahya
Sheriff. The Nation newspaper gathered through Kano Focus,
that the council commended the upper Sharia Court for
passing the death sentence on the musician.
