In reality, the relationships which define and determine the international or world order are relationships between major powers.

Extract from ‘Global trends for the 21st century’ by Adnan Khan

Global Demographic Decline  All the research in the last few decades accepted that the world was facing a severe population explosion.

True Liberation

Before the Caliphate was completely destroyed, it was weakened considerably. There were two means of weakening it. First, the Caliphate was made to adopt parts of the capitalist economic system, and there was an adoption of the Mejalleh, codification of Hanafi law on the pattern of Western legal code, in 1878. Then there was the […]

Neglecting the Accountability of Rulers

Since the Peshawar tragedy where more than 130 school children were killed on 16th December 2014, the government has announced stern actions. It has made severe changes in legislation including the amendment to the Army Act while turning a blind eye to the increasing American footprint in the region. Thus, the regime has callously exploited the anger of the public over the tragedy to further the American “war on terror” by bombarding the areas inhabited by mujahedeen fighting in Afghanistan. It is also making laws to curb support enjoyed by Afghan Mujahideen in the past. Not only this, the regime has taken all the steps it can to obstruct the call to Islam and the system of life that emanates from it. It is spreading fear amongst the people through arresting men, and even a woman with a child, without any discrimination.

Only the Khilafah Will Protect the Non-Muslims in Muslim Lands

Fourteen people were killed and more than 70 injured when two suicide bombers attacked churches in Lahore on 15 March, sparking mob violence in which two other suspected militants died. Up to 4,000 Christians later took to the streets of Lahore, many armed with clubs as they smashed vehicles and attacked a city bus station in a rare show of anger. The bombings occurred during prayers at two churches located around half a kilometre apart in the city’s Youhanabad neighbourhood that is home to more than 100,000 Christians, officials said. Yet, again the regime has failed in its responsibility because it allows the Raymond Davis network to function on our soil, American spies who plan and buy assassins to create chaos within Pakistan. It failed, as it did not evict the hostile foreign personnel from our soil, whether it is intelligence, private military or diplomatic staff.

Democracy is Corrupt Because Men Make Laws

Post Senate elections, over a lunch meeting of 10 March with the heads of major political parties, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif endorsed Monday night’s nomination by opposition parties of PPP leader Raza Rabbani as the new Chairman of the Senate. However, the people were absolutely disgusted with the news about money playing a large role in the recent Senate polls in Pakistan, then a bit of perspective and history would help channel the disgust towards the right target. This is not about corrupt politicians or corrupt parties. This is about democracy. And this is evident in Lincoln’s attempt to pass the 13th Amendment. On 18th December 1865, then US Secretary of State William Seward announced the adoption of the 13th Amendment which was aimed at ending slavery in the US (which practically continued for more than a century afterwards). Initially the US House of Representatives failed to pass the amendment falling 13 votes short of the two-thirds majority required for adopting the amendment. President Abraham Lincoln instructed Secretary of State Seward to secure the required number of votes by whatever means possible. Seward was given a large fund for direct bribes. He also promised government posts and campaign funds to multiple lawmakers to “win them over” to support the amendment.

9th March 2015: “The ‘Dying Russian Nation’ Is Not Unique” (Source : Forbes)

Among elite pundits, it is received wisdom that Russia is a “dying nation.” Everyone knows that Russia, ruled by a bloody and incompetent gang of thieves, is in a demographic “death spiral” which will inevitably send it into the abyss. Furthermore, elite pundits “know” that the only way this decline can be arrested is if Russia embarks on a path of democratic, liberal reform. After all, everyone knows that the other post-Communist countries that embraced free markets, democracy, and the rule of law have fared much better.
