“Rehman Makki, deputy to JuD leader Hafiz Saeed said that at one time, jihadis were interested only in the liberation of Kashmir but the water issue had ensured that “Delhi, Pune and Kanpur” were all fair targets.”

Lashkar had warned of Pune as target

Special Correspondent

New Delhi: One week before a bomb went off in Pune’s German Bakery killing eight, the Jamaat-ud-Dawa in Pakistan had warned of the city being a potential target.

Addressing a rally in the Pakistani capital on February 5,  Abdur Rehman Makki, deputy to JuD leader Hafiz Saeed said that at one time, jihadis were interested only in the liberation of Kashmir but the water issue had ensured that “Delhi, Pune and Kanpur” were all fair targets.

His remarks were reported by The Hindu’s Islamabad correspondent and published in this newspaper the next day. The JuD is the new name of the Lashkar-e-Taiba, which is a banned organisation in Pakistan.

“Whenever our jihad in Kashmir nears success, India becomes ready for talks,” Makki told his audience. “But what is this dialogue all about? [the former President Pervez] Musharraf tried dialogue for eight years. What did he get? What did Pakistan get? A ban on Lashkar-e-Taiba, while the Shiv Sena is allowed to go free,” he said.

Pakistan court frees Mumbai attack accused Hafiz Saeed

Lahore court sets Jamaat-ud-Dawah chief free

A Pakistani court today freed outlawed Jamaat-ud-Dawah chief Hafiz Mohammad Saeed and his close aide Col (retired) Nazir Ahmed nearly six months after they were detained following the Mumbai terror attacks.

A three-member bench of the Lahore High Court freed Saeed and Ahmed after hearing arguments by the JuD chief’s counsel A K Dogar, who claimed the detention of the two men violated Pakistan’s constitution and laws.

The three-judge bench, hearing the case, said it will give a detailed order later. Dogar, who addressed the bench for about 45 minutes, said the UN Security Council had only sought a freeze on the JuD’s assets and a travel ban on its leaders and the world body had not demanded the arrest of JuD leaders. He claimed it was not binding under Pakistani laws to implement UN Security Council resolutions.  Saeed was put under house arrest on December 11 last year after the UN Security Council banned the Jamaat, declaring it a front for Lashkar-e-Taiba, which is blamed by India for November 26 Mumbai terror attacks that killed over 160 people.

Saeed was not present in the court today. The Deputy Attorney General of the federal government and the Advocate General of Punjab province rebutted Dogar’s arguments. The Advocate General said it was binding on Pakistan to implement Security Council resolutions as the country was a signatory to the UN Charter.

After hearing both sides, the bench issued a brief order for the release of Saeed and Ahmed. A detailed order is expected to be issued by the High Court later.

JuD activists who gathered at the court began shouting slogans in support of Saeed on hearing the verdict.

A JuD spokesman hailed the courts verdict and said the organisation will continue its relief activities.

The court’s order was a “certificate” that the JuD was not involved in terrorism and the government had been unable to prove Saeed’s involvement in such activities, the spokesman said. Dogar, who shouted slogans like “Allah-o-Akbar (God is great)” along with Saeed’s supporters after emerging from the court, said the JuD chief had been detained on December 11 last year without any valid grounds or reasons.

Saeed’s house arrest was subsequently extended for “some vague” reasons, he said. He questioned why the Pakistan government had implemented the UN Security Council’s resolution against the JuD when India had not acted on 26 resolutions on the Kashmir issue. During an earlier hearing of Saeed’s petition challenging his detention, Pakistan’s Attorney General Latif Khosa had told the court that the government had evidence that showed the JuD’s “prima facie links” with Al Qaida.

This was the first time that Pakistan admitted that JuD has links with Al Qaida. Saeed and Ahmed had challenged their detention through a petition in the High Court.

Saeed and several other JuD leaders were placed under house arrest in the wake of the Mumbai terrorist attacks but most of them were subsequently freed.

A judicial review board of the Lahore High Court had recently extended the detention of Saeed, also the founder of the Lashker-e-Taiba, and Ahmed by two months till July 8. Five LeT activists, including Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi and Zarar Shah, are currently being tried by an anti-terrorism court in Rawalpindi for alleged involvement in the Mumbai attacks.

Jamaat ud Daawa textbook instructs Muslim children to mercilessly beat up non-Muslims

Mumbai Terror Outfit’s Teachings Exposed
by Ahmar Mustikhan | December 25, 2008

A leading member of the Pakistan civil society has exposed the war-mongering ideology of the Jamaat ud Daawa, or JuD, the umbrella organization of the Lashkar-i-Toiba or Army of Pure—the terror outfit responsible for the Mumbai mayhem in November that left 200 people dead and over 300 injured.

Dr. Rubina Saigol of Action Aid Pakistan has expressed her disgust at the teachings of the jihadist outfit that had tried to show a softer face to the world immediately after the Mumbai attacks by inviting journalists to its headquarters in Muridke, Punjab.

Saigol posted her views on a progressive Pakistani public yahoogroups emailing list called SPN, with nearly 5,000 members. She was responding to the views of another liberal Pakistani editor, Omar R. Quraishi, editorial page editor of largest circulation English newspaper The News International.

In his article, Quraishi wrote: “Regrettably, this tendency to act superior than the rest of the world, ignore one’s own warts and what not and to blame the rest of the world for all that ills the Islamic world is something that is found in many ordinary Pakistanis as well. Whether they have been influenced by organisations such as the JuD or whether the organisations have been influenced by the society that they have grown up in is not the issue but rather that the value system and worldview of the JuD and the LeT is in fact something that a lot of Pakistanis share — particularly the view that a Hindu/Zionist/ American conspiracy of sorts has been put in motion to annihilate the Muslim world.”

Saigol concurring with Quraishi’s view on Jamaat ud Daawa gave some glaring examples from textbooks “that they distribute to their students and which are not available openly in the market.” She added the books are published by Jamaat ud Daawa press and are given to students free of charge.

“The Mullahs [Islamic cleric] say that the books are meant to ‘inspire’ and to inculcate a truly Islamic spirit among students and to enable them to view Islam as a complete way of life, rather than as a set of rituals,” Saigol said. “Through these textbooks children are given inspirational ideas and introduced to the objectives of Islam as seen by the Mullah. They are thus introduced the glorious Muslim past to inspire them to violence to re-create the past.”

She said Jamaat ud Daawa argues that Muslims alone have right to rule the world and are allowed to kill infidels that stand in the way of Islam and this is being taught in textbooks used by the Jamaat ud Daawa.

Saigol said Daawa glorifies violence and hate and teaches the new version of alphabets in which children learn Bandook for Bai, Talwar for Tai, Tank for Ttai, jehaz for jeem and khanjar for khai, rocket for rai and tayyara for To-ay. [In English, all this will translate into G for gun, S for sword, T for tank, J for jet, K for knife, R for rocket and A for airplane.]

“In the Urdu textbook, children are told that infidels are cowards by nature and when a holy warrior attacks them, they scream with terror and fear,” she said. “Mujahideen are glorified as being on a mission from Allah and they are superheroes that kill Hindus and make infidels cower in fear,” she said, referring from the pages of the textbook.

She deplored games are organized around violence and killing and the children play with guns and learn to shoot at balloons, adding they play guerilla games of ambushing infidels, and in one story, a ten year old boy kills hundreds of Russians in Afghanistan .

She said poems and stories are taught about young boys that wage jihad and children read fictitious letters from jihadis killed in battle. “If I am killed in battle, celebrate”, reads one letter to a mother and sister in the seventh grade textbook, and then admonishes, “Make sure you conceal your body and never wear perfume.” Obscurantists among Muslims call this decadent and sexist practice hijab.

India is presented as an enemy and Saudi Arabia as a best friend. Kashmir appears as Pakistani territory forcibly snatched by Hindus and Pakistan as a country created only for Muslims.

Saigol said children are instructed to mercilessly beat up non-Muslims and are told in the second grade textbook that every student should become a holy warrior and that they should be willing to lay down their lives for the great nuclear power that is Pakistan.

Quraishi notes: “Another (JuD) post is devoted to Mother’s Day, or rather to equating it more or less with paganism. In fact, another post is on how Muslims should beware of doing actions that make them equal to kaafirs [infidels] — such as celebrating their holy days and festivals. Also, it is clearly mentioned that non-Muslims are kaafirs and should not be even befriended.”
