By Dr Shahid Qureshi
Dr Imran Farooq former leader of the MQM was involved in heinous crimes in Pakistan. Imran Farooq was never invited to the meeting held just before his death, which proves the point that he was ‘no more in the party’. The way MQM people are minding the family and parents of Imaran Farooq is like if they are in house arrest without open access to the media. We see images of Alataf Hussain weeping on the TV screens but nothing from the family, parents, brothers and sisters? How bizarre is that?
It would be useful and may help solving the current crime if Scotland Yard investigate/study the murder of Haji Jalal reportedly a British Citizen who was member of the MQM core committee, living in London for many years and killed in Karachi in July 2009, after having reported disagreements with Altaf Hussain. MQM issued no statement on his death and no one from the party attended his funeral?
The propaganda by MQM – Altaf in the Western countries that they are fighting against Taliban is utter ‘non sense’. A senior General once said, ‘MQM will disappear in the air once countered with Taliban’. They see every man with a beard from North of Pakistan as Taliban and sing from the hymn sheet coming from abroad. In fact it is a bunch of criminals and killers now violating British laws for many years.
Since 2001, MQM has done nothing practical in fight against ‘terrorism’ apart from sending faxes and false reports to the foreign embassies and governments. They are part of every government since 2002 and done nothing apart from collecting extortion money from Karachi and sending to London via illegal channels. The over exaggerate and propagate visits of junior US officials in media as if White House and President Obama is keeping them in the loop. They have become part of the problem than part of the solution for Pakistan and burden on British taxpayers.
Dr Imran Farooq had Rs 50 Lakhs (Rs. 5 million) head money, and was a convicted and charged in Major Kaleem’s case. The others who were charged are Altaf Hussain (London), Saleem Shahzad (London), Aftab Ahmed, Ashfaq Chief, Javed Kazmi and Hajji Jalal (was in London and eliminated in Karachi), are reportedly in London and frequently appear on TV screens in the meetings of inner circle of Altaf Hussain. The rest are Yousuf, Nadeem Ayubi, Ayub Shah, Ismail alias Sitara, Ashraf Zaidi in USA, Sajid Azad, Asghar Chacha, Rehan Zaidi and Safdar Baqri.
On 5th February 1998 Advocate-General Shaukat Zubedi asked for a RE-TRIAL before a competent court, but the court didn’t agree with his contention and acquitted the appellants. Sind High Court acquitted them because the prosecution seemingly did not peruse the matter. Well if prosecution don’t persue the case under ‘political pressures’, defence is going to win but that does not mean justice has been done.
The incident happened on June 20, 1991 and the FIR of the incident was lodged on June 24. The accused in the case had been charged with kidnapping the army officers and torturing them. Trial before STA Court No. 3 began before judge Ghazanfar Ali Shah in March 1993 and the judgment was delivered on June 9, 1994 when Altaf Hussain was in London and not in Pakistan.
Major Kaleem and three other Pakistan Army officers were patrolling the Landhi area in civilian clothes in an army jeep when about 20-armed terrorists took them hostage after seizing their weapons. The army men were taken to a place called White House in Landhi a torture cell where they were allegedly tortured and kept for seven hours. They were rescued when the police reached the place.
It was Altaf Hussain and MQM who issued a memo to his workers saying,” if there was war between Indian and Pakistan, MQM workers will be remain neutral”. Why Altaf Hussain did issue such treacherous instructions? Whose side is he on? He has already chosen to be a British Citizen.
A senior analyst said, “Altaf Hussian of MQM is becoming a headache for the British Government. His so-called International Secretariat in London is centre of criminal activities. Police would be interested to know who is funding this secretariat and are there any mafia links? Altaf and his cronies allegedly own quite a few properties in London worth millions. Well then what is Serious Fraud Office in Scotland Yard doing about it as it was reported in a London weekly newspaper? Well for Serious Fraud Office properties are allegedly worth Millions and there is no reason for SFO not to investigate if they are not doing already?”
A senior British parliamentarian said to me, “I am living here for many decades and I cannot afford these kinds of properties”. Some one said, ‘in an ideal situation if British Government treat MQM and its leader by law without protecting with legal loopholes, like every one else and not as an ‘asset’, the whole so called Mafia den would be closed down in minutes? Surely security services and GCHQ have records of all the coded communications, speeches?
It seems Altaf Hussain soon will be questioned in local police station under caution for inciting hatred, racism, money laundering, and financial corruption. His passport may be confiscated and travel restrictions might be imposed on all the inner circle.
Can someone like (Altaf Hussain) be tried under Race Hate crimes in Britain, (keeping in view his inflammatory speeches), I asked senior British lawyer Amjad Malik?
He said, “I must say that if some one in Britain used his oratory in a negative way and target his audience to create hatred against any other class in that society which results in violent activities against those group or community and/or results in killings and entails acts committed at any time as part of a widespread or systematic attack directed against any civilian population with knowledge of the attacker including offences such as murder, blackmailing, targeted killing in revenge and to create terror, torture, rape, severe deprivation of liberty, enforced disappearance of persons, damage to property or Genocide, Terrorist activities, or Organised crimes to advance political aims, or he incites racial and religious hatred by using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour, or disorderly behaviour the answer is yes, that person may be investigated and later charged under s. 18 of Public Order Act 1986 and further for using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour, or disorderly behaviour, or displays any writing , sign or other visible representation which is threatening, abusive or insulting under s.4(a) Public Order Act 1986.In my opinion those oratory intimidation and criminal behaviour will be considered racially aggravated offences if racially motivated under s.28(1)a of Crime and Disorder Act 1998 which confirms ‘that at the time of committing the offence, or immediately before or after doing so, the offender demonstrates towards the victim of the offence hostility based on the victims membership or (presumed membership) of a racial group; or b) the offence is motivated (wholly or partly) by hostility towards members of a racial group based on their membership of that group’. Incitement for racial hatred is similar to incitement of race and religious hatred which we see under s.29a and b) of Racial and Religious Hatred Act 2006. I will give example the case of Abu Hamza here as an example as in similar situation one can be investigated by UK police under Police and Criminal Evidence Act and may be asked to attend an interview under caution to see if there is a satisfactory response to the allegations of incitement to racial hatred and as a result of that investigation may be charged by the State if there is sufficient evidence to prosecute and one can be tried in UK under existing national laws, and if one is foreign national and/or naturalised, he can be stripped off his nationality and may be extradited to the State where he originally belongs and where those crimes actually take effect subject to some conditions and human rights provisions. In all circumstances Britain will offer a fair trial to the accused”.
There is a possibility that Altaf Hussain and his gang might be extradited to Pakistan under Interpol ‘Red Warrant’ after the nullification of National Reconciliation Ordinance, which some people called ‘National Robbers Ordinance’.
Altaf Hussain should be sacked from the leadership, brought to justice and MQM must elect a new local Pakistan based leader if they are a political party and not a mafia. MQM need to ‘disarm’ as soon as possible to save more innocent lives in Karachi and in London. Many people in Karachi have grievances against Altaf Hussain’s gang for killings of their relatives. He should be brought to justice before some one brought ‘gang war on the streets of London’.

THE SILENT MAJORITY
by Arslan Khalid
A couple of days ago Pakistan saw The Governor of its largest province murdered in broad daylight by his own security personal. The murderer has claimed it to be in reaction to governors’ statements against blasphemy law. Irrespective of the political turmoil it may have created, the society is divided into two groups over this issue. 5% people claiming it to be a justified act while 5% considers governor as a martyr .
Now where does majority 90% stand on this issue? Well they are once again busy doing their usual thing which is “to keep silent”.
Maulana Roomi once said that Nations die when they fail to differentiate between the right and wrong .It would have been very convenient to accept that our nation had died many years ago but the fact is that this silent majority of our nation has still got the ability to differentiate between right and wrong only if they can come out of their self created prison .Their major concern is just to pass there solitary lives in captivity without being disturbed. They have become immune to oppression and injustice. They have allowed a minority to rule over them and to represent them as a nation whether this minority be extremists or liberal fascists.
In Islam we are blessed with an eternal gift. A blessing that no other religion is offering which is a clear guideline to pass our lives. The whole message of Almighty is there in Quran and then elaborated clearly by Hadiths and the Holy life of The Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him).Unlike other religions where u follow a church or a synagogue to understand it, we Muslims can lead good,pious lives by studying Quran and Hadiths ourselves. So role of a Molvi becomes very well defined . His job should just be spreading the message of namaz,zakat and basic principles of Islam. If some Mullah tries to spread the message against the spirit of Islam which is peace why cant the majority sitting in mosque take a stand and ask him afterwards that he shouldn’t indulge himself in that domain. The little contribution on our part can save somebody from getting wrong meaning of Islam by that Mullah. However as followers, people need to understand that Islam is a religion and not a fashion that needs change with time. There is no radical or moderate Islam .The radicalization is a whole different phenomenon and has more to do with political and social issues than religious ones.
It will take long to explain causes for the radicalization and intolerance that we witness in our society so I would rather stick to my topic about the silent people out there who sometimes gather courage and decides to speak up but limit their voice to facebook or twitter only. alas!! Almost all my friends living abroad on watching governors’ murder news, updated their status on face book showing immense disappointment and remorse. Unfortunately none of them ever update their status when everyday drone attacks are killing innocent people in our tribal region .In an estimate 42% people who died in last yrs drone attack were just a collateral damage and the missile never differentiated between a child, a woman or a 70 yr old man. Last month people affected by drones from South and North Waziristan protested in Islamabad. Prominent human rights associations that claim to be champions of human rights in Pakistan and get dollars for their NGOs in return for their services never turned up for them. Nobody even bothered that a 8 year old child waiting for mercy after having lost his parents in drone attack is an ideal target to get exploited by terrorists.
Even American and British people adopted Iraqi orphans after Iraq war but our silent class has gone so selfish that they couldn’t help one of their own. Living their lives in fear and avoiding trouble, not foreseeing that few yrs from now this very child’s activity can give them some irreplaceable loss.
We always blame an individual for some act but never bothered that this was bound to happen. Give me one explanation why should we only blame an individual and never considered our silence responsible for the act. Why do we expect peace when we are so far from the concept of Islam? Why do we expect logical decisions from people when there is no effort of educating people on real issues? How can we expect a better future for us when we haven’t learnt anything from history? Why do we even think of being sovereign when we know we are being ruled by corrupt puppets of super powers and do nothing to remove them? We want people to be keep deep sentiments for the country but want to restrain their sentiments when somebody shows mala fide intentions towards the religion? How can we expect a great Muslim scholar to come out of some madarasa when we ourselves have generalized all madarasas as terrorist training centers and have labeled all students there as terrorists? Why do we hope for some genuine National heroes when we are busy making disputed people of past as heroes and martyrs? Why do people mention about Rule of Law and States authority to implement some law when the people running the state are the biggest thugs and frauds? why do we even mention about making better laws when the law makers are themselves the biggest law breakers? How can we wish for a revolution that can change the fate of this nation but aren’t willing to sacrifice for it? Aren’t these questions enough to tell that where we demand others to be clear in their heads we ourselves are confused? Last but not least why am I expecting answers to these questions when I know that these questions were addressed to ‘The Silent Majority’ of this nation which hopefully will one day wake up from the deep slumber they are presently in.
Your Opinion Poll Regarding Salman Taseer’s Killing [VOTE]
”]Salman Taseer killed by his own security guard “Mumtaz Qadri” in reaction to Taseer’s statement terming the blasphemy law as a black law. He fired 27 bullets into Salman Taseer’s body. 500 religious Scholars alone from Karachi urged Muslims to boycott the funeral ceremony.
The statement which has been endorsed by senior Barelvi leaders such as Professor Saeed Shah Kazmi, Allama Syed Riaz Hussain Shah, Syed Shah Turabul Haq Qadri and Hajji Mohammad Tayyab calls the assassin Mumtaz Hussain Qadri ‘Ashiqe Rasool Ghaziye Mulk (Lover of the Prophet, Commander of the Country)’.
“We pay rich tributes and salute the bravery, valour and faith of Mumtaz Qadri,” the statement said, adding that the ministers, politicians, ‘so-called’ intellectuals and anchor persons should learn lessons from the governor’s death. The scholars said that those who insult the Holy Prophet (pbuh), even if they did not intend to, were liable for death.
Hajji Mohammad Tayyab, who is also the secretary general of the Sunni Ittehad Council, told The Express Tribune that scholars had “repeatedly urged the president, prime minister and Governor Taseer himself that if their knowledge about the blasphemy law are limited, they should consult them and avoid debating over the issue as it would inflame the people and then anything could happen.”
Shah Turabul Haq Qadri’s son Siraj, also a senior member of the JASP, endorsed the statement and said it was now binding on every Muslim.
Jamiat Ulemae Pakistan (JUP) central executive committee member Maulana Shabbir went as far as saying that in his opinion Salmaan Taseer was ‘Wajubul Qatil’ (must be killed according to divine law). “He had called the divine law of God, a black law and tried to protect a condemned blasphemer,” he said.
Mumtaz Qadri have done the Right action or Wrong ?
Wiki Fake Leaks Playing Destructive Role
Pakistani people are not worried nor they are bothering for any leaks which Wiki has stated. But , certainly many countries and Media centers are playing their role to dent Pakistan as much as they could do so.
Now this is norm , that after every few days you will going to hear some news against Pakistan or news which could predict Pakistan badly. Some year and half ago when one of the known journalist of Washington post predicts that Pakistan will no longer be existed after six months , July 2009. Then every time Western news channels and print Media use to disgrace the image of Pakistani’s.
Why Pakistan is in every bad news , we are not a number nation in corruption. We have not attacked on US or any western country , Pakistan is filled with humans not aliens .
Something is to be sure that someone wants us in bad situation which is our so called ‘ally’.
