When an individual or group from the Islamic Ummah is being attacked by any force or state in the world, issue becomes a military issue and the Ummah must take the military stance towards it; that state takes the rule (hukm) of the belligerent state. In any case, the issue of aggression against the nation cannot be transformed into a political issue that is settled and negotiated with the aggressor or a humanitarian issue in the present sense within the United Nations and its institutions. It should not be considered a nationalistic issue concerning only the veins of the attacked one due to the statement of the Prophet ﷺ «بين المؤمنين والمسلمين… إنهم أمة واحدة من دون الناس… وإن المؤمنين بعضهم موالي بعض دون الناس… وإن سلم المؤمنين واحدة، لا يسالم مؤمن دون مؤمن في قتال في سبيل الله» “Between the Muslims and believers they are one Ummah without the people. And the believers are loyal to each other without the people. The peace of the believers is one and if one believer reached safety he doesn’t so without the other believer whilst fighting in the path of Allah”.
Although, this rule is known from the Deen out of necessity, especially amongst the Muslim rulers and their scholars despite the suffering of Muslims in occupied Kashmir, which has seen the worst persecution by the occupation Hindu forces since 2009. The convoy of martyrs gathered and shots opened against them even hitting them in their eyes. Recently, a child who was shot by Indian forces in the same eye and killed in the hands of his mother! However, the Bajwa-Imran regime extends its hands to India’s ratification and concur peace with it.
The convoy of martyrs flocked in Kashmir over the past weeks resisting the Indian occupation by Indian occupation forces under the ears and sight of Muslim rulers in general and the rulers of Pakistan in particular. The media showed images of abuse towards our people in Kashmir in a scene not different to scenes of abuse of the Jewish entity against the people of the Blessed Land, or the tyrant Bashar against the revolutionaries, or China in East Turkestan, in contrast they did not pronounce the rulers of Muslims. The new rulers of Pakistan, who raised the slogan of simulating the Madinah-model during the establishment of an Islamic State at the hands of the most honoured creation Muhammad ﷺ. They did not utter a word from their lips, nor did they move a finger quickly. Stressing their loyalties to the enemies of the Ummah and their lack of interest of the killing of our people from the descendants of the Madinah-model and worse than that the rulers of Muslims, rulers of the two billion people. They do not consider the issue of Kashmir as their cause or the issue of rulers of the Ummah, and this position is not very different from the position of the regime of Pakistan (America’s client). The position of the former rulers of Pakistan, who have handed over Kashmir and its people since the occupation of India, and the position of Pervez Musharraf and his partner in treachery Nawaz Sharif who prevented the liberation of Kashmir by the Pakistani armed forces in the process of what is known as Kargil Heights when the Pakistani forces were close to being able to do so. This cynical position does not differ from the position of the current silent rulers of Pakistan, their silence is like the silence of the graves, and rather they have increased in treachery by their relentless pursuit of normalization with India and the conclusion of peace treaties with them. Immediately after the current Prime Minister Imran Khan took office, taking advantage of the opportunity given to him by the voters to bring about change in the country and to cancel the approach of his predecessor of the rulers, in complete alignment with the American vision of the region which is to strengthen the Bharatiya Janata Party loyal to India at the expense of Muslims in Kashmir, Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan.
The political scene in the Islamic world and in Pakistan is a dark sight; the darkness comes from the betrayal of the Muslim rulers and the rulers of Pakistan. But when returning to the start, the issue of Kashmir is a military issue, and therefore should be at the table of the commanders of the Muslim armies, especially the commander of the Pakistani army, the fifth most powerful army in the world and possessor of nuclear weapons. If these armies do not move, or the nearest Pakistani army (which for it is more obligatory to move with its full capacity to liberate Kashmir), if they do not move, the convoy of martyrs will continue to flow and with it the blood of Muslims; thereby cursing and damning the betrayal of all those who could support them and did not. The Prophet ﷺ said:«مَا مِنْ امْرِئٍ يَخْذُلُ امْرَأً مُسْلِمًا فِي مَوْضِعٍ تُنْتَهَكُ فِيهِ حُرْمَتُهُ وَيُنْتَقَصُ فِيهِ مِنْ عِرْضِهِ إِلَّا خَذَلَهُ اللَّهُ فِي مَوْطِنٍ يُحِبُّ فِيهِ نُصْرَتَهُ وَمَا مِنْ امْرِئٍ يَنْصُرُ مُسْلِمًا فِي مَوْضِعٍ يُنْتَقَصُ فِيهِ مِنْ عِرْضِهِ وَيُنْتَهَكُ فِيهِ مِنْ حُرْمَتِهِ إِلَّا نَصَرَهُ اللَّهُ فِي مَوْطِنٍ يُحِبُّ نُصْرَتَهُ» “No (Muslim) man will desert a man who is a Muslim in a place where his respect (sanctity) may be violated and his honour aspersed without Allah deserting him in a place here he wishes his help; and no (Muslim) man who will help a Muslim in a place where his honour may be aspersed and his respect violated without Allah helping him in a place where he wishes his help.”
What we ask for is easy towards the best Ummah that was brought from humanity, but is a fantasy of traitors or cowards from the rulers and commanders of armies who see no way out of any crisis except by falling into the arms of the enemies of the Ummah and entering the hole of the ‘Western lizard’. The Ummah which once defeated Persia, the Romans, the Tatars, the Mongols and the Crusaders, and forced the US to pay the Jizyah is able with all its merit, to force the false Hindu state into defeat; without returning the occupied Muslim lands to the lands of the British who made them and drove a dagger into the side of the Ummah of the East just as they drove a Jewish entity in the heart of the Ummah. Both (the Jewish entity and the Hindu state) are nearing their demise as the Prophet of Allah ﷺ said in the Sahih Hadith, but the honor of their demise will only come about with second Khilafah Rashidah; which will be soon (Inshallah). Therefore, it is at the hands of the workers to establish it, all being protective and all loving to receive a share of this honour, and an effect of those who are righteous.
