Lal Masjid Massacre

You have seen us on the news
Heard many stories
Mostly negative
Don’t blame you if you hate us
But now its time to hear our views

You have seen men with beards and turbans
Women with faces covered and sticks in one hand
Children shouting militant slogans
We don’t blame you if you are scared

Who are we?
Are we mad, raving lunatics?
Intent of destruction and mayhem
Or are we human and Muslim just like you?

You have seen the house of Allah surrounded
Helicopters and armed soldiers
Used to attack us in our place of worship and home
You have seen bodies flooding out
Most believed the official version
But some sincere Muslims have doubts
Questions and criticisms

Do we not deserve justice and a fair hearing?
Or is it ok for us to be butchered like animals at Qurbani?
Over hundred plus dead and even more wounded
Mass graves and cover ups
Some witnesses say 1500 martyred
what was our crime and who convicted us in what court?

If you’re willing to listen and think for yourself
Then here is our story

We are Muslims
Just like you
Believe in Allah and his book and Prophet
We accept all the verses and hadith
Regardless of the change in time and place
Islam is not only in our hearts
But in our actions too

We saw the evil all around just like you do
We felt angry and sad like everyone else
Pakistan established in the name of Islam
But where is Islam in society we asked?

Musharaff came
some people applauded
Need for change from the Bhuttos and the Nawaz Sharifs
what has he delivered?
A partner in America’s war against Islam
Thousands of Muslims dead
And open vice and evil everywhere

Brothels even next to masjids
Corruption so open
Modernisation and progress some say
It’s the price we pay
For being Secular

Islam inside people’s hearts
While the decadent values tear our nation apart
Polarisation
Islamists and Secularists
With millions in the middle

So we took a stand
Against those who do evil
Used our hands
To change the condition of the people
We expected the Government to attack us
But we expected better from our brothers and sisters

Do you not wish to live in a better society?
Free from corruption and evil
Based upon the Prophets Sunnah
Where your daughters can walk without being molested
Your sons can get jobs without paying bribes
And the nation’s wealth will be utilised for the ummah

So we suffered the consequences of our sincerity to Allah
We have no regrets
After all death is decreed by the creator
We leave this world working for Allah’s deen
You and us will meet again soon
Where the only currency will be good deeds
So take advantage of the time you have left
And read the Quran and Sunnah with an open mind
And act upon its commands
InshAllah

Salaams Brother,

Your link that is in your signature doesn't work.

Did you write this poem?  Have you ever been in a mosque trapped as these people were, or is this poetic license for creativity?

Salam Sister,

I know about these incident first hand since I am in Pakistan right now.

First of all Lal masjid was creating state within state; They were trying to impose their own "taliban-Islam" on majority by the barrel of Gun.

It all started when Gov issued the notice of demolition; because the mosque was built on stolen land public property.

Lal masjid went to shops and threatened Video stores;
Then they kidnapped police men that were around mosque and disarmed them.

They were later released.

On the complain of neighbors they captured "Aunty Shamim" accusing her of running brothel from the house.

According to her, she was tortured into accepting these accusations.

Gov took no action.

After month or so they raided acupuncture clinic and kidnapped Chinese workers by labeling it all as "covert brothel"

The foreign ministry of China filed complain; Gov was forced to take action.

The mosque was fully equipped with Guns,bullets, mines, bombs & had vast tunnel system.

The two mullah brothers were not coming out and declared "jihad" on Pakistan.

They took children hostage & shot the parents in the legs who went to take their children back home.

It was Pakistan vs lal masjid.

The gov cut off food, water & power to the mosque. To flush them out.

They made holes in the walls of people was flee, many students saved their lives this way.

They even caught one of the brothers running away in burka (women's veil).

While they ignited students to fight their jihad one of them was running way for his live.

In the end Gov was forced to storm mosque and rescue children, with min casualties

 Most of the Muslims in pakistan and India are Hanafi muslims. But their Hanafi Deobandi teachers do not teach them the proper things. According to the Imam Abu hanifah, it is forbidden to rise against a government which is established. That is an important principle if any one wants to follow.

Now these people who were running religious schools, did they not know about that ruling of a good guide, The Imam of Fiqah, Abu hanifah. Jihaad has also a few meanings. And it has conditions. They must be fulfilled. The two Ghazi brothers took on themselves to operate Jihad against a government, so the consequences are there. That is like doing a very honest duty, good work in the way of Allah but getting punished for that. Peace is the process not harshness.

The prophet lived in Makkah. But he did not do any Jihaad of the kind that these two Ghazi brothers tried to do. I do not want to defame or blame them. The consequences of this Lal masjid, the after math will also be bad. Because they (maulvis) have woved to carry our more attacks. All Muslims beware. They have no right to do that.

These Deobandis were running many schools. They were producing the Talibaan who fought well and gained a good government in Afghanistan. But what was the end result of that politics without spiritual guidance. These Afghans were no where as good as Hitler and his might. No good as the japanese. So why did they take on the world?? Because they can make a pistol on home made lathes so they think that they are capable of fighting. No. Fighting is not required at all.

Even now, it is better to learn a lesson. The debacle of Lal Masjid could have been avoided then it would have been much better. But it is all politics and who wants to lose a political battle?? Does Yazeed want to lose the battle?? But Hissain had to pay some price.

I liked the feeling of one good friend who saw a Afghan child (bachcha) picking food from a rubbish bin. He told me that these Afghans were the most beautiful people and very clean and honest practicing Muslims. But look how they been misled and ruined that their children are collecting the rubbish in the cities. Very true. I was very sad to learn that.

If any one is bad some one must suffer

I don’t know enough about poetry or the incident at the Lal Masjid to comment on that.

 

However, I’d like to comment on the following statement:

 

“According to the Imam Abu hanifah, it is forbidden to rise against a government which is established.”

 

If it is forbidden to rise against an established government then what kind of government can people rise against; one that is not established and does not exist? That is like saying every government anywhere and at all times must be supported, even if it is unjust and evil.


Respectfully
