JD chief, religious leaders back Kashmir movement – by Arshad Dogar

LAHORE: CHIEF of banned Jamaat-ud-Dawa Hafiz Saeed Ahmad has warned India to leave the held-Kashmir or get ready to face jihad by the Mujahideen of all religious organisations.

Addressing a large number of participants of a rally held on Kashmir Solidarity Day on The Mall on Saturday, Hafiz Saeed pledged to provide all-out moral, physical and financial support to Kashmiris in their legitimate right to self-determination being denied by India for the last 63 years by keeping Kashmir under unlawful and forcible occupation.

It is worth mentioning here that political parties, including Pakistan Muslim League-N and the PPP badly failed to show their strength on Kashmir Solidarity Day as compared to Jamaat-ud-Dawa. The members of the PML-N and the PPP set up only stalls in front of the Punjab Assembly but failed to show strength of people on Kashmir issue.

Religious parties, including Jamaat-e-Islami and Jamiat-e-Ulema Islam, also joined the big solidarity show of Jamaat-ud-Dawa but none of the major political parties except Tehreek-e-Insaf participated in the rally.

The religious leaders have condemned the policy of Punjab and federal governments on Kashmir issue and asked them to learn a lesson from Egypt, Sudan and Tunisia.

Addressing the rally, Hafiz Saeed Ahmad said that the governments of Pakistan had been under international and Indian pressure on Kashmir issue for the last many decades. He said the decisions of Pakistani government were not public friendly which would result in uprising of Pakistanis like Egyptians, Tunisians and Sudanis.

Hafiz Saeed Ahmad while drawing the attention of Indian Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh in his fiery speech said that Pakistani people were united with Kashmiris in their freedom movement and the show of people on The Mall was the same as on Lal Chowk in Sri Nagar.

The JD chief further claimed that India had tried its best to accuse him in Mumbai incident but it had badly failed to prove the accusations. He added that Indian government also tried hard to hide Samjhota Express conspiracy but even its secret agencies failed to do so.

Hafiz Saeed Ahmad warned Indian Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh that America would not support India further as it, after facing defeat in Afghanistan and Egypt, had decided to call its troops back. Saeed said the 5th February of 2011 was very important for the occupied Kashmir as America and its allies had started facing historic defeats.

It was also said that the cause of Kashmir was affected during the 10 years regime of Pervez Musharraf due to his new formula but now once again the circumstances were taking fast U-turn and America would be unable to save India as it had failed in the case of Husni Mubarak and Zain-ul-Abideen.

“Leave Kashmir or face Ghazwa-e-Hind,” Hafiz Saeed warned India. Hafiz Saeed also rejected the misconception about Islam saying that Islam preaches peace and Jamaat-ud-Dawa’s mission was to bring about peace in the universe. He added that it was imperative for the Muslims to start jihad when enemies of Islam stood against it and Jamaat-ud-Dawa had the same principles. Hafiz Saeed said that he and his organisation was not against talks on Kashmir but as the history showed that India was doing politics of polarisation, now there was no way other than jihad.

“The way of defence, progress and survival goes through Kashmir and jihad for Kashmir will not only result in the freedom of the held-Kashmir but also supremacy of Islam,” concluded Hafiz Saeed Ahmad.

Addressing the rally, Maulana Hafiz Abdul Rehman Makki said that the government of Pakistan should establish a ministry for jihad-e-Kashmir in new federal cabinet for resolving the issue of Kashmir. He added that the UN was no more a neutral institution as it was working under the command of America. He said Pakistani government should once again take strong stance on the issue of Kashmir. He also said that Jamaat-ud-Dawa would provide one million trained people to the proposed ministry of jihad besides providing budget for it.

The Jamaat-e-Islami secretary general on this occasion said that talks should not be initiated till India considered the held-Kashmir as disputed issue.

Jamaat-e-Islami, Lahore sector, leader Ameer-ul-Azeem, Kashmiri leader Shabir Shah, Rana Nasrullah, JUI leader Hafiz Hussain Ahmad, Central Convener Jamaat-ud-Dawa Amir Hamza, Tehreek-e-Insaaf leader Malik Zaheer Abbas, Maulana Abdul Salam and Ghulam Muhammad Safi also addressed the rally.

Earlier, the rally started from Nasir Bagh and reached in front of Punjab Assembly. A large number of men, women and children participated in it. Children were wearing Jihadi dress and carrying toy guns. The participants of the rally were carrying flags inscribed with Kalima and monogram of Jamaat-ud-Dawa. The Kashmiri leaders also resolved to continue their struggle for liberation of their motherland from the Indian occupation in order to reach their ultimate destination – Pakistan.

  • Raymond Davis case: Men killed in Lahore were intelligence operatives, says official By Kamran Yousaf Published: February 7, 2011

    ISLAMABAD: The government’s reluctance to free Raymond Davis is attributed to the fact that the two killed in the Lahore shooting were believed to be the intelligence operatives.

    “Yes, they belonged to the security establishment….they found the activities of the American official detrimental to our national security,” disclosed a security official.

    He requested not to be identified since he was not authorised to speak to the media on record.

    The official confirmed that the president, the prime minister and the chief of army staff (COAS) had discussed the issue in a meeting last week. The three thought it was advisable to resist the US pressure on the Raymond Davis issue and believed the detained American national should not be released at this stage, he said.

    He said the government’s tough stance on the controversy was also its reaction to the attempts by certain elements in Washington to implicate the country’s top spy agency, the ISI, in the November 2008 Mumbai attacks.

    “The government is very angry with the decision of an American court to summon top ISI officials in connections with the Mumbai attacks,” the official maintained.

    The military spokesman was not available for comments.

    The officials in the Foreign Office also confirmed the government’s position on the Raymond Davis issue but said he would eventually be released once the firm assurance from the US that such incidents would not recur.

    The government was also con­templating to ask the American government to waive off Ray­mond’s immunity and try him in the US courts, the officials added. A US Embassy official said his government had “no plans yet to agree on such a step”.
