Deserted but Documented

India has banned a BBC Documentary about Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s role in 2002 riots in Gujarat State. The documentary highlighted a report that found Modi directly responsible for the “climate of Impunity” enabling the violence. In a statement that BBC released following India’s orders to ban the film, it said the documentary was “rigorously researched according to highest editorial standards”. (Al

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, along with his hatred for Muslims, is not just an individual with some unique evil intentions but a carefully crafted, implemented and continued mindset of British colonizers. After the uprising of 1857, the British government realized that dividing the people is necessary for their own survival in the area, and faith was their weapon of choice. The British rulers sowed the seeds of communalism in India by getting the history distorted and suppressed the facts of glorious harmony practised by many Muslim rulers. So, the vast body that was a home for both the religions without any communal riots turned into a sacrificial ground in 1947.

Pakistan and India attained a supervised and controlled independence respectively on 14th and 15th August 1947. It was considered the birth of two nations, that would thrive and progress once they separated from each other by drawing borders. The whole process from the beginning till the end was malicious, the result was two stillborn nations, rotting since the past 75 years. The West may have left the ground but continued its malicious game, knowing that for Muslims, religion is the soft spot that can be poked whenever needed to get the desired effects. Throughout history they have stayed quiet on the issue of Kashmir, as having this issue is necessary to keep the enmity alive. India has been used as a stick for Pakistan, getting all the support and all its crimes become invisible to UN and other international bodies, just like ‘Israel’ is shaded and protected even though the whole world can see the brutal crimes being committed in both Kashmir and Palestine.

This recent documentary hasn’t disclosed anything that wasn’t already known to the Pakistani and international community. Modi was declared responsible for orchestrating and being an accomplice in the 2002 Gujrat riots which happened while he was chief minister of the state and the subsequent murder of thousands of Muslims in Gujerat, which is known as the Gujerat Massacre, and by which Modi earned the title of “Butcher of Gujerat”.

A Muslim ruler is the guardian of lives and honour of the Muslim Ummah. Muslim armies are the protectors of Muslim lands and lives. Pakistan, a nuclear power, having one of the Muslim world’s strongest armies and sitting next to Kashmir and India, has its Prime Minister expressing his desire of peaceful and cooperative ties with India and settlement of outstanding disputes including Jammu and Kashmir, while the people of Kashmir are living a renewed besieged life since 2019. Even today, mosques are being demolished, Muslims are being lynched and areas are being evicted in India and our leadership dreams of friendly ties. These are not the thoughts of a leader or protector. These are the thoughts of a businessman who has his financial and political ties with the kuffar and his own survival is in protecting and propagating their plans. And there should be no confusion in this being only a civilian politician’s doing. All such deeds are supported and backed by the corrupt military leadership.

Survival of the Muslim Ummah lies only under the shade of Khilafah (Caliphate). This survival is not only necessary for the life of this world but our Hereafter depends on this. Islam as a system cannot be implemented mixed with materialistic capitalism. A Muslim’s faith may be announced by reciting kalima (testimony) but it is like a key in the ignition, destination can only be reached by driving and being on the road. Our Muslim sons are in no need of being Western guinea pigs, to be experimented on and written reports about. Our sons and brothers are the “Lions of Allah” who can not be distracted by the jingling of gold coins. Their ears should be used to the sounds of striking swords. The intellectual and military strength linked to the Ahkaam Shariah will re-build an Ummah that will not only protect what we have, but will get back what belongs to Allah and has been taken by the followers of Shaitan. After this under the shade of Khilafah and in the obedience of Allah (swt), we will spread the message of Rasool Allah (saw) and along with writing a new history, will certainly restore the one mutilated by kuffar.

[لاَّ يَتَّخِذِ الْمُؤْمِنُونَ الْكَافِرِينَ أَوْلِيَاء مِن دُوْنِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَمَن يَفْعَلْ ذَلِكَ فَلَيْسَ مِنَ اللّهِ فِي شَيْءٍ إِلاَّ أَن تَتَّقُواْ مِنْهُمْ تُقَاةً وَيُحَذِّرُكُمُ اللّهُ نَفْسَهُ وَإِلَى اللّهِ الْمَصِيرُ]

“Believers should not take disbelievers as guardians instead of the believers-and whoever does so will have nothing to hope for from Allah-unless it is a precaution against their tyranny. And Allah warns you about Himself. And to Allah is the final return.”[3:28]
