LAHORE, Feb. 26: The message of the 12th of Rabiul Awal was that the Muslim Ummah revert to Jehad for establishing the superiority of Deen and the Muslim rulers felt pride in obeying the Holy Prophet ( PBUH) instead of worldly masters, the Jamaat e Islami chief Syed Munawar Hasan, said on Friday.
Addressing the Friday congregation at Masjid Al Kausar, Malir, Karachi, he said this recipe alone could free the Muslims from the infidels’ tyranny and restore their lost glory, says a JI press release issued from Mansoora.
In the eyes of Washington, only those accepting US slavery were praiseworthy but the slaves of Muhammad( pbuh) would never accept US subjugation under any circumstances, he declared.
. Syed Munawar Hasan said, during the last two decades, foreign troops led by the US were perpetrating tyranny and oppression on the Muslims in Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Chechnya, Lebanon, and Pakistan but ironically the Muslims were being blamed and targeted for terrorism and extremism.
He said, tolerating oppression was not a sign of bravery. On the other hand, supporting the Muslims in their struggle against tyranny was in line with the Holy Prophet’s teachings.
The JI chief said that in order to malign Jehad, the Western Media, at the instance of the US, had been dishing out false news and circulating these through the ISPR. He said the activities of the Muslims against the non-,Muslim forces in Palestine, Afghanistan, Kashmir and Iraq were real Jehad that would end up in the liberation of occupied Muslim states. He said the oppression of the non-Muslim powers had compelled the Muslim youth to rise against the tyrants. Street terrorism was the weapon of the weak people, he said. The Muslim masses, he said, were more worried about the state terrorism of the US-crony Muslim rulers than the attacks of the aliens as this had increased terrorism and lawlessness.
Syed Munawar Hasan pointed out that the Holy Prophet (pbuh) during his ten years of life at Madina, as also his companions, continuously waged Jehad against the infidels. The Holy Quran contained as many as 486 verses that were considered as verses on Jehad. The Muslim Ummah today, was confronting hardships on all sides and the enemy was taking it as soft fodder while the US was labeling Jehad as terrorism only to bring it bad name However, the Muslims all over the world had raised the banner of Jehad to demonstrate their love for the Holy Prophet (pbuh). The objectives of the Hizbullah in Lebanon, Hamas in Palestine and Hizbul Mujahideen in Held Kashmir were the same. In Kashmir, seven lakh Indian troops had been committing atrocities over the Kashmiri Muslims for the last 22 years and violating human rights.
