A public service message to all ‪#‎IamCharlie‬ type Pakistanis



All those Pakistani “liberals”, “atheists”, “Marxists” and Islamophobes who were unconditionally, vehmently and opportunistically saying “I am Charlie” should also update their Facebook or Twitter statuses and publish the insulting cartoon/s of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him and his progeny) to show their solidarity with Charlie Hebdo magazine.

Charlie Hebdo was and continues to be an Islamophobe hate rag which is as much to be condemned as are anti-semitic statements by some Muslim clerics, anti-Ahmadi statements by almost all Sunni and a few Shia clerics and anti-Sunni Sufi anti-Shia statements and violence by almost all Takfiri Deobandi and Salafi/Wahhabi clerics. Why double standards?

Personally I protest, in a peaceful manner, the publication of insulting cartoons of Prophet Muhammad (pbuhp) by Charlie Hebdo.

Indeed, I condemn the massacre at Charlie Hebdo by the Deobandi and Salafi Wahhabi fanatics who neither respect human life, nor law.

I also condemn the double standards, hypcorisy and cheap populsim of commercial liberals, fake lefitsts, pseudo-Marxists, Deobandi atheists, secular sectarians and Islamphobes.

The world’s, West’s and Pakistani Uncle Toms’ hypocrisy is evident from their different reactions to the massacre of 15 Whites in Paris to the massacre of 2,000 Black Christians and Muslims in Nigeria. Almost around the same time!

Ironically, in both instances, the massacres were carried out by the Wahhabi Deobandi terrorists who are enabled by nothing else than West’s lasting alliance with the Saudi Arabian Kingdom.

I also condemn the hypocrisy of those who conondemn anti-semitism but condone, contribute to or/and deny Islamophobia. They generically balme Islam and Muslims but never clearly differentiate the majority of peaceful Sunni Sufi and Shia Muslims from a tiny violent minority of Deobandi and Salafi/Wahabi fanatics.

Indeed, I continue to condemn West’s hypocritical and opportunistic alliance with the Saudi kingdom which is a major enabler of the transnational Salafi Wahhabi and Deobandi terrorism today.

As Ali Abbas Taj noted, it is important to notice how few if any of the “liberals” are highlighting the Syria connection with the Paris massacre. (They hate Patrick Cockburn, Robert Fisk, George Galloway, Laleen Ahmed, Jahanzaib Hussain, Khurram Zaki and Aamir Hussaini for highlighting the blowback aspect of the West’s Jihadist investments in Syria, Libya and elswhere.) When one breeds Wahabi-Deobandi Frankensteins (FSA/ISIS/Al Nusra) in their backyard for carrying out regime change in faraway lands (Syria, Iraq etc) and allows allies like Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey to radicalise the youth, how does one prevent terrorism rebounding within one’s one cities and towns. We have seen this in the shape of Deobandi Frankenstein in Pakistan and now we are seeing this in Europe.

Personally, I take offence from any one who ridicules all Muslims for the crimes of takfiri Wahhabi and Deobandi terrorists. I also take offence from all Islamophobe, antisemitic and other xenophobe hate rags.

In the meanwhile, I dare fake liberals and Deobandi atheists to show spine and practice their values (other than denial, obufscation or apologia on Deobandi terrorism) by republishing the insulting cartoons of Prophet Muhammad (pbuhp). They can draw courage from Pakistan’s presecuted Shias and Sunni Sufis who continue to practice their values despite facing genocide at the hands of Deobandi terrorists. Every year, millions of Pakistani Shias openly condemn tyrant Caliph Yazid and mourn Imam Hussain despite the threats of lynching and suicide bombing by Deobandi terrorists. Shias continue to sacrifice their lives but are not ready to sacrifice their values. Ditto for Sunni Sufis who continue to sacrifice their lives to uphold their values and rituals such as the Milad-un-Nabi.

More than 45,000 Sunni Sufis/Barelvis and 22,000 Shias have sacrificed their lives for the sake of their values. How many Pakistani (fake or commercial) liberals have offered their lives to uphold their own values?

The only true champions of liberalism and tolerance in Pakistan are those Sunni Sufis, Shias, Christians, Hindus, leftists etc who openly and clearly identify, condemn and resist the Deobandi roots of terrorism in Pakistan, the Deobandi-Wahhabi roots of terrorism across the globe, and are against all forms of bigotry and violence. Commercial liberals, Deobandi apologists and Islamophobes do not belong to liberalism, they belong to the dustbin of history.

    Some typical errors to be avoided for understanding Charlie Hebdo killings:

    1- Attributing these killings to the publication of Mohammad cartoons.
    This is just a pretext given by [Wahhabi Deobandi] terrorists. In fact, this is pretext for neutralizing the Muslim community and singling it out for racist backlash. The prime objective of [Wahhabi and Deobandi] terrorists is to hold Muslims hostage and make them targets of backlash so that more recruits could be found from the Muslim community as it faces assault in the West.

    2- Making it a freedom of press issue.
    [Wahhabi Deobandi] Terrorists are least concerned by freedom of press or any other freedom. This issue is out of their vocabulary. Their objective was to spread their values : the devaluation of human life. And their aesthetics: blood and carnage as imageries for conveying their message of destroying human values and civilization as such.

    3- Seeing it as a terrorist revenge for Islamophobia in the West.
    In fact, the precise objective of terrorists is to fuel Islamophobia in order to reap the benefits accruing from it.

    4- Taking it as a mechanical reaction to the racism faced by Muslims in France.
    In fact, Islamist terrorism is for racism and the racialist profiling of Muslims since the Jihadis want to isolate Muslims from the society.

    5- Looking at it an attack on ‘Laicisme’ and ‘Republique’.
    These, as such, were not the targets of terrorists. Their target in this case, as well as the attacks on schools in Pakistan and Nigeria, is the human civilization, the written word, the book, etc. Jihadis will eventually starting opposing the very book they claim they believe in.

  • Militancy draws extreme reactions and not sympathy, especially if there is an understanding that blasphemy was used perhaps, as an excuse to attack the West, which is a dominant pattern in al Qaeda-driven violence. The two Algerian boys were recruited by al Qaeda in Yemen to strike inside the heart of the perceived enemy as it did before. We know that if the intent was to stop the publication of sacrilegious cartoons, then al Qaeda has failed. The cartoons will increase, not stop.
    Unfortunately, these attacks will result in strengthening of the political right across Europe and the Muslim population will be subjected to greater scrutiny, perhaps at times unfairly. The pressure on Muslims in Europe to prove themselves better citizens will increase mostly by demonstrating commitment to Western secularism that they are not prepared for. Indeed, this is a test for both free speech and multiculturalism in Europe.

    اظہار رائے کی آزادی کا دفاع کرنے والوں کے لئے ایک نکتہ:
    یہ مورس سینات ہیں۔ ایک کارٹونسٹ جنہیں چارلی ہیبڈو سے برخواست کردیا گیا تھا۔۔۔۔
    “میں چارلی ہیبڈو میں کارٹونسٹ کے طور پر کام کرتا تھا۔ 2009 میں میں نے ایک مزاحیہ خاکہ بنایا جس میں سارکوزی (نکولس سارکوزی، فرانس کا سابق صدر) کے بیٹے کو پیسے کی خاطر یہودی مذہب اختیار کرتے ہوئے دکھایا گیا تھا۔ ادارے نے مجھ سے کہا گیا کہ معافی مانگو۔ میں نے انکار کردیا۔ چارلی ہیبڈو نے مجھے “یہودیت کا مذاق اڑانے” پر ملازمت سے فارغ کردیا۔”
    بہت سے لوگوں کو یہ سازش لگے گی۔ ان کی دوا (مصدقہ خبر- ٹیلیگراف اخبار سے) نیچے لنک میں موجود ہے۔
