Jama’at-e-Islami hits hard at NDF
Monday April 28 2008 14:38 IST
KOZHIKODE: THE relationship between the NDF and the Jama’at-e-Islami has touched an all-time low with Probodhanam, the official mouthpiece of the Jama’ate- Islami, coming out with a hard-hitting article blasting the NDF for ridiculously imitating resistance movements like the Hamas and the Chechnyan Mujahidheens.
The article `Jihad Unlimited,’ written by `Seethi’ in the latest issue of the magazine lists a number of charges against the NDF which include blocking the marriages of Muslim girls with non-Muslim boys. It puts the blame on the NDF for wrongly interpreting Jihad and spoiling the lives of gullible youths.
According to the article, unlike the NDF, which uses all means to escape from cases, the Hamas never disowned any operations done in the name of Jihad,whatever be the consequences.
But the NDF even went to the extent of bribing the police officers to salvage itself from cases and came out in public denying any hand in the operations.
The article says the NDF always derided everyone who argued that Jihad is not the way to function in a country like India. Those who differed with the NDF are dubbed as cowards who toe the lines of the imperialists.
The article wants the NDF either to admit that they have declared Jihad or agree to the stand that Jihad is not desirable in India.
The article raises another serious charge that an outfit under the control of the NDF had conducted a survey to find out the number of non- Muslims converted to Islam.
A questionnaire was sent to the offices of all Muslim organisations which contains queries like as to how many non-Muslim were converted by the organisations into Islam in a particular year.
According to the author of the article, the NDF which started as an antestablishment organisation quietly became part of the establishment.
The launching of the Thejas daily added momentum to the downfall. The article says that the permission for distribution of Thejas daily was denied in Saudi Arabia even after two NDF supreme council members lobbied for the daily.
Remarks by a Malayali who is working with the Saudi Government was one reason for the denial of permission.
The NDF retaliated by attacking the person at Nedumbassery when he was on way to the airport. The aim behind the attack was to delay his arrival in Saudi Arabia which would spoil the efforts to get permission from the Saudi Government.
