Silence of Islamic Scholars and Terrorism














Silence of scholars and Terrorism




Islam is a complete code of life and cannot be separated from politics. I like Maulana Tariq Jameel and his lectures are effective for moral development of a Muslim. When Zaid Hamid Sahib initially wrote some posts against Maulana Tariq Jameel, then I also felt hurt. However, we should abstain from blind following and should not forget that Pakistan has been a victim of worst kind of terrorism since many years which is backed by foreign elements. We are only Muslims, neither deobandi nor barailvi. All deobandis are definitely not terrorists, but TTP (Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan) are definitely deobandi. In these circumstances, all scholars (deobandi and barailvi) including Maulana Tariq Jameel should openly condemn terrorist groups, specifically TTP.

Zaid Hamid Sahib has raised a point since many years that TTP are not true Taliban and have been created by RAW and CIA to defame Afghan Taliban. He says TTP are ‘Khawarij’ as per Ahadith who attack and kill innocent Muslims (women, children, the elderly and Pakistan Army-men). Afghan Taliban never kill innocent people but they have only been fighting against NATO forces in Afghanistan. To fight this worst kind of terrorism in Pakistan, the scholars not only should openly condemn terrorist groups but they should label them ‘Khawarij’ as per Ahadith also. This is the viewpoint of Zaid Sahib.

It is important to note that Dr. Israr’s Qur’an Academy has now declared TTP as ‘Khawarij’ also.

It is a reality that some Imams of deobandi mosques do not condemn TTP, but speak against Pakistan Army. It is admitted that Musharraff committed crimes in tribal regions initially but after that RAW and CIA created TTP to destabilize Pakistan. There is much difference between the situation of before and after. Hence it became our war. Our dear Prophet (peace be upon him) not only preached but pointed out the hypocrites and the conspiring Jews in Madinah thus opening a front against them. Hadhrat Abu Bakr Siddique (ra) also conducted Jihad against the trouble-makers in his time. Hadhrat Imam Hussain (ra) did not yield to the evil ruler of his time. This is Islam!

As far as Tableeghi Jamaat is concerned, they have some good to offer also though we could have dissatisfaction over their modus operandi.
