BY : TANVEER JAFRI : The terrorism which is being nurtured since last three decades in Pakistan, is today on climax. The anti-Islamic forces have entered into Muslims society in the shape of ‘defender of Islam’. It seems that now they have their strong grip on Muslim society there. Terrorists are making big to bigger tragedies in Pakistan almost everyday. Last month, these terrorist forces in Pakistan attacked on guest cricket team of Sri Lanka at Lahore. Many players injured in this daylight attack.
Due to this tragedy, Pakistan government felt sorrow before the world. Same terrorist forces attacked on a police training centre & a posh area of Islamabad. Such types of attacks on security campus are direct challenge to the security of Pakistan. It is remarkable that at the time of attack on police academy, the armless policemen were busy in their lunch. In the meantime, a young man entered that place & jumped on the chest of a cadet & just after cried loudly “Allah-Ho-Akbar” (God is great) & with this slogan that young boy who was a suicide bomber, blew himself. The tragedy resulted in six more deaths of security personnel.
Before above terrorist attacks, a mosque was attacked in border area of Afghanistan & Pakistan. In this attack, whole double-storey mosque was destroyed & 48 persons were killed while praying. And now these extremist & terrorist forces, which are involved in anti-human activities, have attacked an Imambara at Chakwal town of Punjab province in Pakistan. In this suicide attack, more than 2 dozen people have been killed & more than 50 are seriously injured. At the time of this attack, thousands of people of Shiite community were participating in an annual programme called Majlis (congregation). A young boy aged 16-17 entered in Imambara in black clothes. He was interrupted there for search by the programme volunteers. He blew himself on the spot. If that attacker would have succeeded in entering the main hall of Imambara, there would have been much more casualties.
Firstly let’s learn about the Imambara & also Majlis. Imambaras are building structures related to Shiite community almost. These are the places where religious activities of the Shiite community, specially the remembering of Imam Hussein, the great martyr of Karbala, are organized. The gathering of the followers & devotees of the great martyrs of Karbala is called Majlis. In this religious congregation, the followers of martyr Imam Hussein mourn his killing along with his 72 martyr associates. Since the tragedy of Karbala such type of religious congregation is being organized worldwide by Hussein’s devotees, especially by the Shiite community. This congregation reminds that how & why the real successors of Islam & Prophet Mohammad, were opposed to Yazid, the so called Muslim ruler of Syria. Yazid was most corrupt, cruel, characterless & anti-Islamic ruler. He wanted religious recognition from Hussein as the latter was grandson of Prophet Mohammad & real successor & representative of Islam. Yazid had the largest army of that time whereas Imam Hussein had only 72 devoted associated with himself. But he didn’t care the power of Yazid. Hussein always felt that the only great power of the universe is God & anybody must not be fear with any big or cruel power except one & that’s Great God. Thus Imam Hussein sacrificed himself with his 72 companions & proved in the battlefield of Karbala in Iraq that being a saint & great martyr, he was the only real successor of Islam, & not Yazid who was only a Muslim ruler.
Anyhow, the suicide bombers attack at Chakwal’s Imambara has once again proved that 1400 years ago, which Islam was saved & defended by martyr Hussein with his sacrifice, now once again that religion of Islam is in danger. The cruel Yazidi teachings in Islam have raised their heads once again. These people who call themselves Muslims & look like a Muslim, are indeed totally anti-Islamic. These communal & extremist forces are using the name of Islam as their shield. These inhuman forces are explaining Islam connecting with the power, politics & empire. Sometimes these forces use the name of religion for capturing the power in Afghanistan. Sometimes, same forces spread their dangerous network in Pakistan to destabilize the country. Same cruel forces sometimes misguide the youth of Kashmir in the name of religion. And in exchange of some minor amount, they get these children from their guardians. After training, these children are used as a human bomb. These forces manage terrorist attacks with the help of their own network anywhere in the world including India & Pakistan. These forces oppose the US, its policies, sometimes India, sometimes Pakistan government & sometimes, the Muslims who pray in Mosques. Actually just like Yazid, they want to spread their extremist views forcefully throughout the region of Afghanistan, Pakistan & in surrounding regions in the name of Islam. For this mission, they manage all type of terrorist attacks including kidnapping & hijacking of the planes which all are totally inhuman & anti-Islamic.
To get the sympathy of the Muslim world, these communal extremist forces use to instigate the Muslims against America, in the name of Islam. These cruel Yazidi forces torture Muslims women in Pak-Afghan frontier area. Such type of outrage was never heard in Islamic history previously. Now these extreme forces have been unmasked. They want to create terror in Afghanistan & Pakistan & nearby areas only to extend & spread their power & to capture it. These forces are directly challenging the police & armies of this area including the US led NATO forces. They want to terrorise this area as much as the security forces surrender before them. And after capturing Afghanistan & Pakistan, they want to get the control of nuclear weapons of Pakistan. And after getting these nuclear weapons, what can they do, nobody can imagine.
Now the question is whether the mission of cruelty & terrorism led by the Taliban will go on smoothly as present or as they want & require? These forces may be controlled or not? In the current scenario, it is clear that these extremist & terrorist powers don’t care of the security forces. After successful attacks on the security centres in daylight, their morale is very high. Although the suicide attack in the Imambara at Chakwal was a direct target at Shiite community, but it is not right to say that these Yazidi forces are making their target to only single community. Indeed, all the forces, societies & communities, which oppose these terrorist forces, are their enemy. That may be the US, Pakistan government, security forces or the whole peace loving world. Even these terrorists oppose & kill those people, working for the reconstruction of Afghanistan.
Above dangerous circumstances compel to wonder that whether these forces may be crushed or not? These forces will get befitting reply of terrorism or not? Now the time has come that Pakistan government, administration, ISI & judiciary of Pakistan understand & accept it that since last three decades, which extremist forces have captured the Pakistan’s society in the name of Islam, actually that was not their motive to strengthen the Islam, neither that was a practice to promote Islam in the world. But it was the secret agenda of the terrorists like Osama Bin Laden, Aiman Al Jawahiri, Mullah Mohammad Umar & now Baitullah Mehsood, who want to establish a radical Islamic empire just like Yazid, the terrorist of Syria. But now these forces have been unmasked. From the killing of Benazir Bhutto to an ordinary poor Muslim lady, these forces have proved that they are connecting their anti-Islamic & inhuman activities with Islam forcibly & thus the religion of Islam, which is known for its love, peace, equality, brotherhood, is now being defamed. In such circumstances, not only America or Pakistan but it is the moral responsibility of the whole peace loving world that it unites as soon as possible against these cruel Yazidi forces. Firstly, these forces have to be disarmed. The production & supply of the arms & ammunitions to these forces has to be checked & controlled. The reserves of arms have to be destroyed. More “Karbalas” may be needed to protect the true Islam, propagated by the Prophet, from these terrorists. If need arises, more sacrifices have to be made.
