Sheikh Imran Hosein- Iqbāl and Pakistan’s Moment of Truth – FULL ESSAY

February 21, 2010 at 4:37 pm (Allama Iqbal, Education, History, Islam, Khilafa, Pakistan, Politics) (, , , , )

Introductory comment

Time is running out for the republican State of Pakistan. Only those who see with one eye will fail to recognize the evil reality that clients of Israel now control strategic decision-making both in Pakistan’s government as well as in the Armed Forces. The writing appears to be on the wall for Pakistan – unless Pakistani Muslims can rid themselves of those clients of Israel. The best way to do so appears to be through massive peaceful public demonstrations similar to those which brought down the USSR with narry a nuclear risk, rather than civil war which will automatically invite external military intervention that will eventually dismember Pakistan.

Scholars of Islam have a duty to prepare Muslims for destructive attacks that are soon to be launched which will target not only Pakistan but perhaps, Turkey and Iran as well. The situation is not entirely hopeless since at least the Iranian Armed Forces do not appear to be under the control of Israel’s clients. In fact Iran seems to have already succeeded in building a strategic alliance with Russia. It is interesting to note that an authentic Hadīth has prophesied an end-time Muslim alliance with Rūm (i.e., Byzantine Christianity that was based in Constantinople), and Russia is part of Rūm. The Saudi and Pakistani governments and Armed Forces on the other hand, are allied with the Anglo-American-Israeli alliance which does not form part of Rūm.

Sheikh Imran Hosein- Iqbal and Pakistan’s Moment of Truth

January 28, 2010 at 7:59 pm (Allama Iqbal, Global Issues, India, Islam, Khilafa, Pakistan, Politics) (, , , , , , , )

By Sheikh Imran Hosein

Time is running out for Pakistan. Scholars of Islam have a duty to prepare Muslims for destructive attacks that are soon to be launched which will target not only Pakistan but perhaps, Turkey and Iran as well. Those who control power in Britain, USA, and Israel, and who now have a strategic ally in India, are already waging unjust war on Islam and Muslims in Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Somalia and elsewhere, but most of all in the Holy Land (otherwise known as Palestine). Their ruthlessness is such that they would wage war even upon their own people if such were deemed to be necessary. The 9/11 terrorist attack on America which killed thousands of innocent people was an ominous example of what they are capable of doing. Their goal is to deliver to Israel the rule over the whole world, and this cannot be achieved so long as Pakistan possesses nuclear military power. The recent US military occupation of Haiti in consequence of a massive earthquake for which the US Armed Forces seem to have been mysteriously prepared (right down to drills conducted on the very eve of the earthquake) displays for the umpteenth time the extent to which they would commit monstrously evil deeds in pursuit of goals such as the overthrow of Venezuela’s courageous government.

Pakistan snubs US over new Taliban offensive

January 21, 2010 at 5:47 pm (Pakistan, Politics) (, , )

Source: BBC

Pakistan’s army has said it will launch no new offensives on militants in 2010, as the US defence secretary arrived for talks on combating Taliban fighters.

Army spokesman Athar Abbas told the BBC the “overstretched” military had no plans for any fresh anti-militant operations over the next 12 months.

Our correspondent says the comments are a clear snub to Washington.

The US would like Pakistan to expand an offensive against militants launching cross-border attacks in Afghanistan.

Defence Secretary Robert Gates arrived in Pakistan on Thursday for his first visit since US President Barack Obama took office last year.

Pakistani top brass sell their loyalties to appease US

Pakistan Military Makes A Stand

By Syed Saleem Shahzad

 Source: Asia Times

ISLAMABAD – After several months of backroom wheeling and dealing between the United States and the top brass in the Pakistani garrison city of Rawalpindi, Washington has expressed its full trust in Pakistan’s military leadership and its apparatus, including the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), which in turn is preparing to fight the next phase in the South Asia war theater.

This will focus on the hunt for high-profile al-Qaeda targets in the Shawal and Datta Khel areas of Pakistan’s North Waziristan tribal area, where it is believed Osama bin Laden’s deputy, Dr Ayman 
Al-Zawahiri, and the shura (council) of al-Qaeda are hiding. Over the past few weeks, the US has stepped up drone attacks in the region.

United States Senator Joe Lieberman, who recently visited Pakistan, confirmed on Sunday that the Pakistani army “is on the move” and that there is the “possibility the US will see activity in that volatile northern region [North Waziristan]”. Lieberman met with Pakistan’s military chief, General Ashfaq Parvez Kiani.

Divide and Fool

January 15, 2010 at 4:31 pm (Education, Global Issues, Governance, History, Pakistan, Politics) (, , , , , , , )

By Komal Hashmi


he Divide and Conquer Strategy enables one power to break another into smaller, more manageable pieces, and then take control of those pieces one by one. It generally takes a very strong power to implement divide and conquer strategy. In order to successfully break up another power or government, the conqueror must have access to strong political, military, and economic machines. In reality, it often refers to a strategy where small power groups are prevented from linking up and becoming more powerful, since it is difficult to break up existing power structures.

Pakistan receives first Saab 2000 AEW aircraft

December 30, 2009 at 3:04 am (Pakistan) (, )

By Siva Govindasamy

Source: Flight International

The Pakistan air force has taken delivery of the first of its four Saab 2000-based airborne early warning and control aircraft from Sweden.

Islamabad became the first military customer for a Saab 2000 derivative when it signed a deal for the Saab Microwave Systems Erieye radar-equipped type in June 2006. Its first example made its flight debut from Saab’s Linköping site in mid-2008.

“The aircraft landed at one of the Pakistan air force’s main operating bases, marking a major milestone in the overall modernisation plan,” says the service.

“Besides detection of high- and medium-altitude flying aircraft, this state-of-the-art system is also capable of detecting low-level flying objects over land and sea at extended ranges [and] of picking even the surface targets over the sea,” says the air force.

Same enemies; same blunders?

December 17, 2009 at 12:51 am (Pakistan, Politics) (, , )

By Shireen Mazari

December 16, 1971 and the fall of Dhaka should remind us in Pakistan of the follies of our leaders and the repercussions of unfettered military action against one’s own people. It should also be a time to ponder over the role of our neighbour, India, in the dismemberment of our country and the complicity of the major powers, in giving legitimacy to this first break-up of a post-colonial nation since the end of the Second World War. The war in what was then East Pakistan was not the first civil war that had happened, although once India stepped-in it ceased to be a mere civil war, but it was the first war that split up a sovereign member of the UN and this was recognised by the UN. The Biafra case was also there but no one was prepared to grant recognition to this breakaway entity.

Why Pakistan Won’t Fight the Afghan Taliban

Brian Cloughley writes in a guest op-ed for IC:

Pakistan’s army continues to face challenges, not the least of which is the growing insurrection by Taliban and Taliban-supporting tribesmen in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) abutting Afghanistan. There has of late been much international criticism of the army for allegedly failing to take action against militants, and according to London’s Financial Times on April 26, Hillary Clinton “expressed bewilderment that one of the world’s largest armies appeared unable to confront dozens of militants.”
