Obama to remind Zardari, Karzai responsibilities

I do not think policies of Obama is different from the policies of Bush. Bush successfully completed his mission of capturing Iraq and now Obama trying to capture Afghanistan and Pakistan. Bush made allegation on saddam that he is having chemical weapons even i still remembered at so many times Bush govt. confirmed use of chemical weapons by Saddam ruled Iraq. Now we all know his lies.

Obama replaced chemical weapons by Alqaeda Taliban, cruelty on women by Muslims,sharia. majority of issues are created by their own media.Fact is very different.

Iran President Mahmud Ahmad nejad raise same question and the result was walkout by US. there is lot of fake news, fake videos you can see now a days on  net against Afghanistan and Pakistan Muslims by name of Taliban sharia.

The United States and its allies not only have failed to contain the production of drugs in Afghanistan, but the cultivation of narcotics has multiplied in the course of their presence. The basic question is that what was the responsibility and the job of the then US administration and its allies?

Did they represent the countries of the world? Have they been mandated by them? Have they been authorized by the people of the world to interfere in all parts of the globe, of course mostly in our region? Are not these measures a clear example of egocentrism, racism, discrimination or infringement upon the dignity and independence of nations?

Now once more Obama is trying to interfere In Afghanistan and Pakistan Politics without any authorization from Public of both countries.

Ahead of US President Barack Obama’s meetings with his Afghan and Pakistani counterparts in Washington next month, the White House has said that he would remind them of their responsibilities pertaining to the fight against al-Qaeda and Taliban in the region.

“The President will reiterate his hopes and his belief of the opportunities, but also the responsibilities that each leader has,” White House spokesman Robert Gibbs told reporters abroad Air Force One en route to Newton, Iowa.

Obama has invited Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari and Afghan leader Hamid Karzai to White House early May to hold the first ever trilateral summit under his administration.

“This is part of the ongoing new policy and process that was put into place at the conclusion of the review of where we are in Afghanistan and Pakistan,” Gibbs said.

“Understanding that this is a very important and very dangerous part of the world, the President wants to be personally involved, as he has been throughout his administration, in seeking to find solutions to the problems that are in this region and to protect the United States.”

The summit is expected on May 6-7, the same dates when the second trilateral meeting was scheduled for.

As was the case with the first meeting at the Foreign Ministers’ level, Obama would be meeting one-on-one with Karzai and Zardari; following which the three would together discuss the current situation in the region and chalk out a common strategy to defeat al-Qaeda and Taliban.

Parachinar: The Silent Massacre

Truth Behind Bloody Clashes in Parachinar Kurram Agency P-4

Taliban’s attack on shia Muslims mosque and religious spots is very comman in Pakistan.We all have heard about mass killing of shia at parchinar pakistan in April 2007 and then in Nov. & Dec. 2007 and currently started in 6th April 2008 which is still not ceased.  . One man Mr jawad Published a beautiful article “Parachinar: The Silent Massacre” which i would like to  share.

Tucked away between soaring snowy-peaks and deep gorges in the fragile north-western region of Pakistan is the tiny town of Parachinar.

Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, one of the more charismatic leaders in the history of this troubled nation, is said to have called it Pakistan’s own “Switzerland”. Humbled by towering snow-tipped mountains and covered by endless fruit orchards, Parachinar’s natural charm is breathtaking. Its narrative for the last two years however, has been anything but reflective of the serene beauty of its surroundings.

Strangled by recurring sieges laid on the town, and a plight concealed from the consciences of the outside world by a silent media, the lives of Parachinaris have been a tale of untold suffering. Since early 2007, violence has gripped the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA), which holds Parachinar, and the surrounding North-West Frontier Province (NWFP) leading to the deaths of hundreds. Even more have been left homeless and without means of sustenance with homes and local businesses regularly torched down just because their owners happen to fall under the wrong “sect”. Despite the periodical nature of sectarian violence in these regions, the unrelenting wave of the recent outbreak has been by far the bloodiest in recent memory.

Tensions began in April 2007 when a procession of Shias came under fire from fanatical Wahhabis who view Shia Muslims as heretics. What followed on from that initial attack however, has been a systematic attempt to wipe out Parachinar of its’ Shia presence. Shias represent a majority of the population in Parachinar constituting over fifty-percent (50%) of the population. They also have a considerable presence in neighbouring towns in the north-west of the country with a strong and historic Hazara presence further north of the FATA.

During the rule of General Zia-ul-Haq, the Kurram Agency (which hosts the town of Parachinar) came under increased focus for its strategic location as it provided the shortest route from within Pakistan to the Afghan capital, Kabul. Jutting out into Afghanistan almost like an island peninsula, it was famously nicknamed the “Parrot’s Beak” by US forces during the Soviet-Afghan War and was regularly used as a launching-pad by American-backed “jihadists” to strike out at the Soviets. As a result of this strategic importance, towns in the FATA region were flooded by inflows of Wahhabist and Salafist anti-Soviet “jihadists” well-known for their hatred towards Shias.

Following on from the early and comparably minimal killings unleashed in April, armed Wahhabi groups have since caved in on the local Shias of Parachinar from all sides. The Shia residents of Parachinar have repeatedly claimed that Wahhabi elements from Afghanistan have joined in the attacks against the town’s Shias, but these cries have been met by deaf ears in Islamabad’s Pakistani central government.

An all-out attack against the Shias of Parachinar has been underway for a long time now; even Sunni locals seen to be “friendly” towards Shias have not been spared in this maelstrom of killing. Gruesome images of beheaded and mutilated bodies, with arms and legs chopped off from corpses, have surfaced on the Internet since the outbreak of violence. Such showings of utter barbarity are not altogether unique. The collective massacres of Hazara Shias in next door Afghanistan – more notably in Mazari Sharif in 1998 where during a 48-hour period over 8,000 Hazaras were mercilessly slaughtered – evoke similar images of ruthlessness. By the end of the killing spree then, corpses littered the streets of the city after express orders were given out by the Taliban government for the dead to be left unburied.

Eerily reminiscent of massacres conducted against Afghan Shias in the recent past, Riaz Ali Toori, a villager from Parachinar, protested in a letter to a Pakistani daily:

“Today Parachinar is burning: daily bodies of more than five beheaded persons reach Parachinar. The situation of Parachinar is getting worse day by day and so is the life of all people living there. It’s a matter of great sorrow and shock that Pakistan, in spite of bringing Fata into the mainstream of the country, has been pushed into fighting a continuous war and facing terror.” (Letters to the Editor, The Dawn, April 08 2008)

Surprisingly, at a time when the “civilized” world is on a so-called offensive against “terror”, coverage of the sorrow-filled plight of Parachinaris within western media has been periodical at best. The reasons for this are unclear. May be it is because Parachinar, fatefully, does not sit over barrels of oil; or perhaps our probing of the historical context behind these massacres will lead us to discover that Parachinar is yet another piece of anecdotal evidence of the much disregarded “blowback” stemming from the Soviet era.

In July of 2008, the New York Times ran a piece highlighting the rise of “sectarian conflict” in Parachinar. By then, the town had already been subject to a siege that had spanned for months; food and medical supplies had been in severe shortage after the main Thal-Peshawar highway leading to the town was blocked off by armed groups. The New York Times article carried the story of Asif Hussain, a Sunni driver, in a relief convoy headed for Parachinar; the convoy was ambushed, and its drivers taken captive. Asif Hussain was let off after convincing his captors that he was Sunni, the other eight drivers were not as lucky. (Power Rising Taliban Besiege Pakistani Shiites, New York Times, July 26 2008)

Today, the violence has spread out over a larger radius extending all the way through to the southern tips of the NWFP. Attacks on Shias in Hangu, Chakwal and as far south as Deira Ismail Khan have become a thing of the norm. Late in August of last year, a suicide bomber detonated himself inside the DI Khan hospital killing thirty-two Shia followers who had come to claim the remains of one of their leaders slain earlier in the day.

As recently as last week, another suicide bomber struck a Shia mosque in Chakwal instantly killing thirty and leaving hundreds more injured. The systematic targeting of followers of the Shia sect in various regions of Pakistan, more specifically in the north-west of the country, amounts to nothing other than a project of ethnic cleansing. According to a reputed scholar of the phenomenon of ethnic cleansing, Drazen Petrovic, he defines it as such:

“ethnic cleansing is a well-defined policy of a particular group of persons to systematically eliminate another group from a given territory on the basis of religious, ethnic or national origin. Such a policy involves violence and is very often connected with military operations. It is to be achieved by all means, from discrimination to extermination …”

The above definition provides an almost perfect fit to the present situation on the ground in Parachinar. If international silence continues as it has over the last two years, the same story will have repeated across many towns in the FATA and NWFP.

That the Pakistani government holds principal blame for its failure to restrain the killings is indisputable and goes without mention. Wider global apathy to an ongoing project of ethnic cleansing however, is certainly not comprehensible and deserves a great deal of mention.

Parachinar deserves better. And the people of Parachinar certainly deserve better. The least we can do is speak out and urge our leaders to press the Pakistani government to bring an immediate end to these massacres. Then, and only then perhaps, can it be said that we have extended a hand to the forgotten victims of Parachinar.

A report to the Iranian parliament has cited grave human rights abuses against Shias in the northwestern Pakistani city of Parachinar.

Lack of government control over the highly sensitive border areas of Kurram Agency, the capital of which is Parachinar, has lead to an increased Taliban presence in the area.

Local Pakistani media reported last week that Taliban-linked militants in Parachinar, Hangu district and much of the Kurram tribal agency have during the last six months been engaged in sectarian violence and have killed 25 to 30 people on a daily basis.

Several Islamic websites Blocked By Group XP

Several Shia websites, including Sistani’s official website http://www.sistani.org, were blocked by an extremist group who call themselves Group XP.

It was the most serious cyber attack of its kind over the past few years in pursuit of a sectarian aim.

http://www.sistani.net was also hacked but now it redirects to http://www.al-sistani.ir which seems to be working properly.

They have posted a youtube video which begins with Bill Maher’s mockery of Sistani and then cuts to an audio of Sistani’s (and Khoei’s) fatwas on sex.

The semiofficial Fars news agency said the hackers were based in the United Arab Emirates and blocked access to 300 sites.

Imam Ja’far ibn Muhammad as-Sadiq (A) has said: “A Nasib is not one who bears enmity to us the Ahl al-Bayt, since you will never find a person who says that I hate Muhammad and the family of Muhammad. Rather, a Nasib is a person who is openly hostile to you since he knows that you follow us (the Ahl al-Bayt) and (since he knows) that you are of our Shi`a.”

Thawaab al-Amaal by Shaykh Saduq’

Crooks and Liars.com says The defaced site could well be a guerrilla marketing stunt to promote Maher’s new mockumentary “Religulous,” a scathing dissertation on faith that opens in theaters Oct. 3.

Key Iranian Shiite religious figure Ayatollah Nasser Makarem Shirazi condemned the attacks.”Fanatical Wahhabis do not want the voice of Shiite officials to reach the world,” Fars quoted him as saying

A group of Shi’ite lawyers has filed a lawsuit against Sheikh Al-Qaradhawi in a Doha court following his attacks on the Shi’a. The attorneys called for him to be stripped of his Qatari citizenship and expelled from the country because his statements incite to civil war.

Message On Birth anniversary Of Imam Al-Qaem(A.J)

Message On Birth anniversary Of Imam Al-Qaem(A.J)

On this auspicious Birth anniversary of Our Living Imam mahdi (AJ ).I offer my sincere greetings to all those who love our beloved twelfth h Imam Mahdi (AJ) and work for his coming, asking the Almighty (swt) to keep you all always happy in this life under the flag of the awaited one, and in the hereafter through his intercession (ameen).

When Imam Mahdi reappears, he will rule with justice, and no one will be able to discriminate against another. Roads and paths will become secure, the Earth will bring out its bounties, all rights will be returned to their rightful owners, and no follower of a religion will remain until he becomes a Muslim and professes his faith.” Bihar al-Anwar

Islamic scholars, based on the infallible sayings, are of the opinion that the sign of Mahdi (AS) is that he shall be harsh with rulers, generous with people in distributing wealth, and gentle with the helpless in easing their pain.

Hence, not only Shia people but all people throughout the world expect him day and night.

al-Mahdi (AS) will come in the last days to make a universal Government. Sahih al-Tirmidhi, v2, p86, v9, pp 74-75

The Messenger of Allah said: “The world will not perish until a man among the Arabs appears whose name matches my name.” Sunni reference: Sahih al-Tirmidhi, v9, p74

Of all the various ways and methods to prepare for his appearance, the author as a sociologist is of the opinion that “supplication” or “dua” is the most important way.

One of these treasures which believers and those anxious for the reappearance of the righteous and universal government of Imam Mahdi (AS) have set their hearts upon is the glorious “Nudba” supplication. They renew their allegiance with their Master during fixed occasions and hold emotional gatherings where it is recited.

Lamentation (Nudba) and waiting for the meeting with His Holiness and the end of his occultation, praying to hasten his reappearance and expressing regret about the turbulent and oppressive conditions of the modern world (the period of the major occultation) are lessons which the Shia have learned from their infallible Imams (AS) and their behavior is a pattern for their partisans.

According to Shia scholars, recitation of this supplication is recommended as mustahab (highly advised) on four Islamic major festivals (ids): Friday, Fitr (holiday marking the end of Ramadan), Adha, and Ghadir (the day on which Imam Ali {AS} was appointed to be the real successor of the Holy Prophet {S}).

Quran proclaims ‘O you who believe! Be patient and excel in patience and maintain contact, and be careful of your duty towards Allah, that you may be successful.’(Surah Ale Imran, Verse 199)

Imam Sadiq (a.s.) by way of elucidation of the above verse narrates,‘Maintain a special affinity with your Imam.’(Noorus Saqalain, vol. 1 pg. 426)

What is a duty of a Shi’ite? What responsibilities does he have? Truly, are we reckoned among the real followers of His Eminence (Imam al Mahdi)? If we study the lives of the devout Shi’ites (followers) of the Holy Imams before the Twelfth Imam, and consider their sacrifices without the slightest hesitation, we shall at once awake from our neglectful slumber and realize our weakness and guilt.

How long must I wait for you, O my Master! And how long and with which word should I praise you, and what secret talk should I use with you? Is there any helper with whom I may prolong my lamentation and weeping? Is there a way, O Son of Ahmad (S), through which you may be met? Will you see us gathered around you and you are leading all the people? So, convey to him our greetings and salutations, and increase his honor because of this (greeting), O Lord.”

Imam is a confidant, an aide, a sympathetic father, an affectionate brother, and a caring mother who nurtures her infant.” (Al-Kafi vol. 1, pg. 200)

Imam (a.s.) asserts,

‘We are never neglectful of your guardianship nor are we ever unmindful of your remembrance.’(Behaarul Anwaar, vol. 53, pg. 176)

O Allah! I ask You for the sake of Your representative and Your Proof, Master of Time, that You help me through him in all my affairs. And Protect me through him from the difficulties of every torturer, dissident and rebel. (Please) help me through him for my efforts are exhausted. And Protect me from every enemy, grief, sorrow, debt, my children and all my family members, my brothers and my close ones, whose deeds do harm unto me. Aamin, Lord of the Worlds.(Behaarul Anwaar, vol. 94, pg. 34)

O Inheritor of Hasan, Successor, Proof! O awaited Qaim, Mahdi! O son of God’s Messenger! O proof of God over His creatures! O our Lord and Master! We turn to thee, ask thy intercession, and seek access through thee to God. We place before thee our needs. O thou who has standing with God! Intercede for us with God!’

May Allah hasten his reappearance.

Hindus participate in Muharram

Interesting News published today in The Times Of India

A hindu sect claims that their ancestors have fought along side Imam Hussain (AS) in the battle field of karbala and they call themselves Hussaini brahmin.
Interesting enough is the date of Aashura given in some books, it is 10 of october 680 AD according to these texts.
Hindus participate in Muharram
21 Jan 2008, 0355 hrs IST , Faizan Ahmad , TNN

MUZAFFARPUR: On the tenth day of Muharram, the first month of Islamic calendar, Shia Muslims across the world spend the day in mourning to commemorate the 1327-year-old martyrdom of Hazrat Imam Hussain, his family and followers. Here on Sunday, a group of Hindus participated in the Muharram procession with equal veneration.

They claim their lineage to Hussaini Brahmin sect. And, from this year, they have revived their centuries-old tradition of shedding tears in the memory of the martyrs of Karbala — which their ancestors used to do. Mostly Bhumihars, the group marched barefoot from Bara Imambara in Brahampur locality here beating their chest and chanting “Ya Hussain”.

They also carried a banner proclaiming their sentiments towards the Imam and his martyrdom. “Our ancestors also fought in support of Imam Hussain and sacrificed their lives in Karbala and we are equally pained at the historical martyrdom,” said Bhumihar Brahmin Mahasabha convenor Arun Kumar Sharma.

References in several books and records confirm that some Hindus did join Imam Hussain, the grandson of Prophet Mohammad, when he was through a bloody battle against Yezid at Karbala (in Iraq ) on October 10, 680 AD.

The sect, which was later named Hussaini Brahmin, had settled on the banks of river Euphrates . Subsequently, they returned to India and assumed various titles like Datts, Mohiyals, Tyagis and many others. They also practised an intriguing blend of Islamic and Hindu traditions.

This was the first time in recent memory that the people claiming the lineage joined the Muharram rituals in this part of the country. The late Sunil Dutt, who belonged to Hussaini Brahmin sect, used to attend Muharram processions.

Asked why this practice remained discontinued for decades Sharma, a practising lawyer, said: “We can say this was the fault of our fathers and grandfathers who did not teach us about this aspect of our historical and cultural heritage.”

Marching in the procession ahead of the band of young Shia youths injuring their chest and back with blades fixed to chains, small daggers or even razors, Upendra Prasad Shahi said, “The battle of Karbala was a war to save humanity and faith. We are proud that our ancestors, too, sacrificed their lives.”

Legend has it that Rahab Sidh Datt had fought on behalf of Imam Hussain in the battle of Karbala, sacrificing his seven sons in the process. Rahab was the leader of a small band of career-soldiers living near Baghdad at the time of the battle of Karbala . In his novel ” Karbala “, Munshi Prem Chand mentions about Hindus fighting for Imam Hussain and referred to them as descendants of Ashwastthama, son of Dronacharya.

The Hussaini Brahmin sect is today a rapidly vanishing community. The younger generation of the clan are said to be abandoning their ancestral heritage, some seeing it as embarrassingly deviant. “We should, rather, feel proud of this tradition,” said Sharma who has painstakingly pursued his caste people to help revive this heritage. “Before the advent of Islam, we had blood relations with the people of the Arab world,” Sharma claimed.
