Advice to a Young Taliban – Part 3

leave a comment »

Made another long comment in response to a pro-taliban comment:

1/3 Real situation in Swat – Afzal Khan Lala (ANP) – May 4, 2009

Lala is very brave leader of ANP but Lala is telling a lie
i dislike Lala

From the posters profile it seems he adulates “Maulana” Fazlullah, which was intruiging, because Maulana Fazlullah cuts a very odd figure (esp. given his tussle with his father-in-law Maulana Sufi Muhammed).

Made a long comment in reply, but more in order to understand HOW people can justify adulation of such people. And what drives them – is it true Islamic knowledge (in which case HAVE they examined the parallels with earlier Islamic history), or is it some tribal (pagan) belief system:

Maulana Fazlullah is not a “Maulana”, but he calls himself Maulana. Do you find that is a good “fayl” (i.e. habit) ?

Does it bother you that his sources of finance are unknown ?

Have you questioned where Takfiri ideology comes from and what it has been implicated in ? That is, breakup of the Ottoman Caliphate by the British (Lawrence of Arabia/Saud-tribe/Abdul Wahhab Takfiri fatwas). And subsequent rule of Arabia by one family.

Are you aware WHY majority of Sunni madhab forbid going against state ? Because it opens up the state to BIGGER enemies – and the Takfiri groups become tools (or inadvertent allies) of outsiders.

Wahhabi/Salafi was the creation of ONE “scholar” – and is a “modern” innovation (Salafi is old word).

Also remember in Islam, war is not fought for “glory”, but to achieve a purpose.

If you start fighting it for “glory” alone then it is for “blood lust” and “revenge” or some tribal (pagan) beliefs.

Are you aware of the Ismaili fitna (Hasan Sabah/Hashashin/assassins) in Islamic history ?

And the Khariji fitna (in early period of Islam) ?

What lesson do you take from that ?

Nazir Naji erupts in Lucman Show

leave a comment »

Nazir Naji (journalist) erupts in Lucman Show at the mismanagement in Pakistan.

How the politicians are not in control.

How little these people supported Musharraf when he needed them. Just because he talked gruff was not grounds to hate him. At least he talked as EQUAL to journalists.

As I said earlier, it was Musharraf who CREATED the media, fostered it and gave RESPECT to journalists by sitting with them as equals (and not as feudals/mazara).

Yet even THEN, Dr. Shahid Masood interviewed Benazir with gratefulness in his voice and bent in a posture of deep reverence, with his hands in his lap. NO MENTION of Surrey Palace. Yet these same people became “shayr” (tiger) when they interviewed Musharraf.

What was the reason ? Musharraf treated them like human beings.
