Why is our new ruler worst than his predecessor?


The situation of Pakistan has gone from bad to worst since our new president came into office. It seems he is no better than the previous one and is infact the worst thing that could have happened to Pakistan.

The question is why? Why are all our leaders, politicians,MNAs MPAs corrupt? Why do they cheat and lie and are only interested in filling their bank accounts? Are politicians the only such breed of Pakistanis with no morals or principles?

The answer is no!

Majority of the Pakistanis – I would say 95% of Pakistanis are corrupt, selfish, liars and cheaters and would not leave any opportunity to cheat and fool others so that they can fill their own pockets.. Yes I am a 100% Pakistani and I am not afraid to admit that we as nation have failed and we as a nation have no morals or principles.

Go to a shop, and if you are not on your guard, the shopkeeper will give you less change and it is usually the ladies who are the victims. Once a shop keeper tried to cheat me of 500 hundered rupees. I asked him three times to count and he kept insisting that this was the right amount. It was only when my brother came in that he admitted his mistake.

Go out shopping and you might be given less cloth than what you paid for or will sell you a cheaper quality cloth while swearing that they have the “pure” top quality cloth…

Buy some fruits and vegetables and if you don’t check, you’ll end up with rotten fruit and vegetables instead of the fresh ones displayed on the thaila. Oh and don’t expect you’ll get the right weight which you paid for…

Call a plumber or an electrician to your home to fix things and they will ask for exorbant amounts! Once a plumber was called and he asked for 500 rupees to change the leaking faucet. The other plumber was called and he charged only 20.

If you have ever had the experience of getting a house constructed, you would know what I am talking about. With a such a project you need to deal with masons, plumbers, electricians, laborers, carpenters, etc etc and it should be enough to make your blood boil.. When my mother and brother were getting the house constructed while my father was abroad, trust me every one who got the chance cheated… the wood would vanish from the house, the cement would always be running out, the electricians would not come on time, wrong bathroom fittings were sent and what not!

Go to get any official work done and you will be openly asked to pay bribes before your work/application can proceed. Individuals in their office would take advantage of and misuse office supplies, telephone, stationery etc

Bribery, theft, cell phone snatching, car snatching – all these crimes are increasing day by day.

What a sorry picture of our nation. Whether it be a poor thaila wala or a shop wala , a simple looking electrician, an office worker , a government official or a rich bureaucrat – everyone in their own capacity wants to take undue advantage or cheat others so they can fill their pockets or make some additional profit! Basic qualities like honesty, sincerity, selflessness, punctuality, loyalty are no where to be seen

Prophet Muhammad (s) said regarding the relation between the rulers and the ruled:

As you are, so will be the rulers that will be set over you” (Mishkaat).

So corrupt leaders and politicians should not  come as a surprise to us., they are just a reflection of the citizens. If we want change, if we want justice, if we want loyal sincere and honest leaders we will have to clean up our own act first.

Leaders Lie, Civilians Die and Lessons of History Are Ignored


By Robert Fisk

We’ve got so used to the carnage of the Middle East that we don’t care any more – providing we don’t offend the Israelis. It’s not clear how many of the Gaza dead are civilians, but the response of the Bush administration, not to mention the pusillanimous reaction of Gordon Brown, reaffirm for Arabs what they have known for decades: however they struggle against their antagonists, the West will take Israel’s side. As usual, the bloodbath was the fault of the Arabs – who, as we all know, only understand force.

Ever since 1948, we’ve been hearing this balderdash from the Israelis just as Arab nationalists and then Arab Islamists have been peddling their own lies: that the Zionist “death wagon” will be overthrown, that all Jerusalem will be “liberated”. And always Mr Bush Snr or Mr Clinton or Mr Bush Jnr or Mr Blair or Mr Brown have called upon both sides to exercise “restraint” – as if the Palestinians and the Israelis both have F-18s and Merkava tanks and field artillery. Hamas’s home-made rockets have killed just 20 Israelis in eight years, but a day-long blitz by Israeli aircraft that kills almost 300 Palestinians is just par for the course.

The blood-splattering has its own routine. Yes, Hamas provoked Israel’s anger, just as Israel provoked Hamas’s anger, which was provoked by Israel, which was provoked by Hamas, which … See what I mean? Hamas fires rockets at Israel, Israel bombs Hamas, Hamas fires more rockets and Israel bombs again and … Got it? And we demand security for Israel – rightly – but overlook this massive and utterly disproportionate slaughter by Israel. It was Madeleine Albright who once said that Israel was “under siege” – as if Palestinian tanks were in the streets of Tel Aviv.

By last night, the exchange rate stood at 296 Palestinians dead for one dead Israeli. Back in 2006, it was 10 Lebanese dead for one Israeli dead. This weekend was the most inflationary exchange rate in a single day since – the 1973 Middle East War? The 1967 Six Day War? The 1956 Suez War? The 1948 Independence/Nakba War? It’s obscene, a gruesome game – which Ehud Barak, the Israeli Defence Minister, unconsciously admitted when he spoke this weekend to Fox TV. “Our intention is to totally change the rules of the game,” Barak said.

Exactly. Only the “rules” of the game don’t change. This is a further slippage on the Arab-Israeli exchanges, a percentage slide more awesome than Wall Street’s crashing shares, though of not much interest in the US which – let us remember – made the F-18s and the Hellfire missiles which the Bush administration pleads with Israel to use sparingly.

Quite a lot of the dead this weekend appear to have been Hamas members, but what is it supposed to solve? Is Hamas going to say: “Wow, this blitz is awesome – we’d better recognise the state of Israel, fall in line with the Palestinian Authority, lay down our weapons and pray we are taken prisoner and locked up indefinitely and support a new American ‘peace process’ in the Middle East!” Is that what the Israelis and the Americans and Gordon Brown think Hamas is going to do?

Yes, let’s remember Hamas’s cynicism, the cynicism of all armed Islamist groups. Their need for Muslim martyrs is as crucial to them as Israel’s need to create them. The lesson Israel thinks it is teaching – come to heel or we will crush you – is not the lesson Hamas is learning. Hamas needs violence to emphasise the oppression of the Palestinians – and relies on Israel to provide it. A few rockets into Israel and Israel obliges.

Not a whimper from Tony Blair, the peace envoy to the Middle East who’s never been to Gaza in his current incarnation. Not a bloody word.

We hear the usual Israeli line. General Yaakov Amidror, the former head of the Israeli army’s “research and assessment division” announced that “no country in the world would allow its citizens to be made the target of rocket attacks without taking vigorous steps to defend them”. Quite so. But when the IRA were firing mortars over the border into Northern Ireland, when their guerrillas were crossing from the Republic to attack police stations and Protestants, did Britain unleash the RAF on the Irish Republic? Did the RAF bomb churches and tankers and police stations and zap 300 civilians to teach the Irish a lesson? No, it did not. Because the world would have seen it as criminal behaviour. We didn’t want to lower ourselves to the IRA’s level.

Yes, Israel deserves security. But these bloodbaths will not bring it. Not since 1948 have air raids protected Israel. Israel has bombed Lebanon thousands of times since 1975 and not one has eliminated “terrorism”. So what was the reaction last night? The Israelis threaten ground attacks. Hamas waits for another battle. Our Western politicians crouch in their funk holes. And somewhere to the east – in a cave? a basement? on a mountainside? – a well-known man in a turban smiles.—Dawn/The Independent News Service

Afia Siddiqui : Her picture speaks a thousand words…


Afia Siddiqui Now
Afia Siddiqui Now

Look closely at the two pictures above. Is the picture below really of the same woman? This picture is haunting me, it is telling me stories about the pain and suffering and the torture this Muslim Woman – My Sister in Islam has been through in the past five years of her life.

Aafia Siddiqui is a Pakistani who graduated from MIT. In 2003, while on her way in a taxi with her three young sons, she disappeared never to be heard of again until recently when she was found in US Custody and the US claimed that they arrested her on 17th July in Afghanistan.[7]

Her Crime :

Aafia Siddiqui allegedly yelled “allahu akbar” and grabbed a soldier’s rifle and fired two shots before she was shot herself in the July 18 incident.Despite being shot, Siddiqui struggled with the officers when they tried to subdue her; she struck and kicked them while shouting in English that she wanted to kill Americans[7]

For her crime she was presented before the court in New York on the 5th of August and her trial is underway in USA.

She is thought to be the ghost lady, the only woman prisoner No. 650 imprisoned in Afghanistan.[1][2] Reports tell of the horrendous trials she went through there screaming and crying all night long.[3] Reports suggest that she was severly tortured, one of her kidneys was removed, her teeth were removed, her nose was broken and improperly set and her recent gun shot wound was oozing blood constantly.[4] He picture testifies to this harsh reality which the US is trying to hide, stating that she was in hiding since the past five years.

Knowing the history of Abuse of the prisoners of Abu Gharib by the Americans, i don’t even want to imagine what she must have gone through there being a woman. It was reported that she was constantly raped and abused, forced to use mens toilets and forced to eat non halal food.

Shame on me. Sleeping comfortably in my home eating and having fun. Living a comfortable life while my Muslim sister is being raped and tortured by the American dogs! Shame on all our leaders and all the Muslims. When will we wake up from our slumber. All our time and efforts are for what? Earning wealth, living luxuriously. Eating, drinking and partying.

There is nothing else in the life of our Muslim youth but”chilling out and having fun” and trying to BE AMERICAN! wanting their way of life, dressing up like they dress up, watching movies they make, doing things they do! When will we open our eyes and realize their deception that they are our enemies! WHEN? When it happens to us personally or to our very own mothers and sisters and daughters?

Look at the picture again. Her story is not to be read, to just feel pity and to be eventually forgotten. It has given me a lot to think about. The deception of the west and their full efforts to make us despise our own religion – to make us into “moderate” Muslims – Just Muslims by name and not in deed and actions. Their fake cries of liberation of women when they can not even respect women. Their glossed up lifestyle and cries of freedeom of expression when they can not even let us practice and preach our own faith.

Look at her picture? It gives a lot to think about and a lot to do. What does it give you?

Benazir Bhutto Assasinated


RAWALPINDI, Pakistan, Dec 27 (Reuters) Former prime minister Benazir Bhutto was killed in a gun and bomb attack after a rally in Rawalpindi. Dawn News

Assassination of Benazir Bhutto is definitely a great blow to any hope for any kind of peace and stability in Pakistan. Killing, murdering and suicide attacks are heinous crimes no matter who the victim, be it innocent civilians or political leaders.

Majority of the people, non-muslims as well as enlightened Muslims are under the impression that practicing Muslims will be happy with such a thing or that they promote or support such terrorist activities. Already accusations are being hurled that it was done by some Islamist Jihadist etc etc…

Who ever the assassin, I just want to present Quranic Ayats and saying of Prophet Muhammad (saw) so you can see for your self what Islam has to say about murdering.

“…if anyone killed a person not in retaliation of murder(Qisas), or (and) to spread mischief in the land – it would be as if he killed all mankind, and if anyone saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of all mankind.”(Quran 5:32)

The Prophet said, “The biggest of Al-Kaba’ir (the great sins) are (1) to join others as partners in worship with Allah, (2) to murder a human being, (3) to be undutiful to one’s parents (4) and to make a false statement,” or said, “to give a false witness.”(Bukhari 83 : Hadith 10)

The Prophet said, “No human being is killed unjustly, but a part of responsibility for the crime is laid on the first son of Adam who invented the tradition of killing (murdering) on the earth. (It is said that he was Qabil).(Bukhari 83:6)

Allah’s Apostles said, “When a slave (of Allah) commits illegal sexual intercourse, he is not a believer at the time of committing it; and if he steals, he is not a believer at the time of stealing; and if he drinks an alcoholic drink, when he is not a believer at the time of drinking it; and he is not a believer when he commits a murder,” ‘Ikrima said: I asked Ibn Abbas, “How is faith taken away from him?” He said, Like this,” by clasping his hands and then separating them, and added, “But if he repents, faith returns to him like this, by clasping his hands again.(Bukhari 82:800)

The last hadith makes it very very clear that suicide bombing can never ever be accepted in Islam.

When the bomber is exploding the bomb, at that moment he is killing other human beings and according to the hadith the faith is taken away from him. If at this time he is killed himself.. how can he ever enter paradise or be considered a martyr or a jihadi when he died without faith!!??

May Allah forgive her, may Allah have mercy on all of us and on our country Pakistan.Ameen

<br>

Update: Benazir died from gunshots, not suicide bombing! Benazir Bhutoo was in her car returning back, when she suddenly came out of the sun roof of her car to wave to the crowd, there were three gun shots and she was hit, she fell down and then the bomb exploded. This description was given by John Moore, a photographer who was just 20 yards away from Benazir and taking her pics. See his photographs right before and after her assassination here

The assassin must have been an expert hit man to have shot her straight in the head and neck.

Update: For updated news regarding the current situation and mobile pics taken just before the assasination showing the assassin, please visit this blog Teeth Maestro
