Does this imply that Zardari is even keener top serve the US interests than Prime Minister Jeelani? If it is not so, why does the US have to support his candidature to be the president? Answer: 1. Indeed both the men Zardari as well Jeelani are American pawns and under their control, both of them have asserted their keenness to further develop cooperation with the United States in its most important agenda of consolidating its stronghold & hegemony in the region under the garb of the so-called ‘War on Terror’.

IAEA reports more of the same, but are US-Iran relations the same?

On 15/9/2008 the International Atomic Energy Agency reported that Iran had repeatedly blocked a UN investigation to probe allegations that it had tried to make nuclear weapons. The findings of the report were once again seized upon by western powers to portray Iran as a pariah state and a menace to its neighbors. America, France, Britain and Israel have raised the specter of a new set of sanctions to punish in their view Iran’s intransigence over its peaceful nuclear programme. White House spokesman Gordon Johndroe said, "We urge Iran to suspend its uranium enrichment and reprocessing activities or face further implementation of the existing United Nations Security Council sanctions and the possibility of new sanctions." French Foreign Ministry spokesman Eric Chevallier said, ”We have no other choice than to work in the days and weeks to come toward a new (UN) Security Council sanctions resolution”. Israel’s Prime Minister's Office spokesman Mark Regev said, “This is anot

Analysis of the Delhi blasts

Five bombs exploded in quick succession in crowded markets and streets in the heart of Delhi, India on 13th September 2008, killing at least 23 people and injuring scores more. As is common the government and media started pointing fingers towards the Muslim community citing proof of a dubious email received claiming responsibility. It is most likely that these bombings as well as those undertaken in recent times in Jaipur, Ahmedabad, Surat and Bangalore were orchestrated by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) with the aim of strengthening their position looking ahead towards the upcoming general election due by May 2009. There are various evidences that point to this: 1. The reaction of the leaders of the BJP towards the bombings. Instead of taking a conciliatory tone as is normal in a time of crisis, the leaders of the BJP clearly used the event as a pretext to attack the ruling Congress party. The notorious Chief Minister of Gujarat, Narendra Modi said, “Ten days ago, when I m

Nusrah: The Shara’i Method to Assume Authority

The following is the english translation of two articles from the Arabic magazine, Al-Waie Rajab & Sh'aban 1429 hijri (2008) issue: بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم Nusrah: The Shara’i Method to Assume Authority It is enjoined upon the people of power. By Abu Taqi Al Shami Allah (swt) has bestowed the early Muslims with His honour, decreed rewards for them, and mentioned their praise in the Great Book. He (swt) mentioned each of the two brotherly groups, who embarked upon a great endeavour, and referred to them as Muhajirin and Ansar (the Immigrants and the Sponsors), which means the people who under took Hijrah and those who offered them the Nusrah. The Hijrah itself was the declaration of the state and migration to the land or abode of Islam (Dar ul Islam), while the Nusrah was created for Hijrah and for establishing the Dar ul Islam. Without the Nusrah and the Ansar, there could be no Hijrah or Muhajirin. Therefore, how can a Muslim, who very often recites the Quran and
