O Matyrs Of Kashmir......(Poem)

"Truely You are our best heroes,

Never will we sell your blood to the foes
Deep inside our hearts, we remember your sacrifice,
You gave up lives for us, and not for any price
Your memories innumberable, we feel with us,
We adore you, never will you be surplus
All your hopes for freedom, will soon come true,
Every dream of yours, we will pursue
Your commitment for nation, we will net let go,
We are indebted by your credits from head to toe
Every pleasure of life, you had forsaken,
Every joy of yours had been taken
Your blood was spilled for our cause,
You strived tirelessly without any pause
The flag of freedom you raised to heights,
Upon you are resting our nation's sights
The spirit of freedom you carried in your hearts,
Now we harbour in our bosoms
None can stop us now from freedom,
We will attain it, even if we have to kiss matyrdom"

A letter to CM; from a Kashmiri farmer

Irtif Lone, a farmer from Kashmir has lot of grievances with the state government. He writes to the CM and pens down his emotions. A letter which will make you laugh and cry at the same time.

Mr. Chief Minister
You see, I don’t like winter. And I know you too would have no admiration for it, except when it snows and you go skiing. Let me tell you, I also like skiing but I never get a chance. I was planning to go this year, but you see it did not snow. People have been praying all over the valley for snow now, you know even Mirwaiz Omar was praying for snow yesterday at Jamia Masjid. He seemed quite worried about it. But they never show him skiing. Did you ever see him there? By the way, he is more interested in cricket. He is worried about Pakistan players not playing in IPL. Did you hear that? Yes, you must have. Why don’t you tell your father to do something about it? Anyways, tell me did you pray for snow? Or are you still praying to stick to your Chair! (I was joking; you see I have a good sense of humour.)

Remembering the Kunan Poshpora Mass Rape February 23, 1991 
El Shaheed takes us through the testimonies of Young and old women of Kunan Pushpora Kashmir Gang rape victims
It was one dreaded night when the village of Kunan Pushpora was attacked by a unit from the Indian army camped about ten miles from the village. All the men of the village were rounded up and locked away in a room of an empty house. The soldiers carried bootles of alcohol in their hands and were drinking, swearing and shouting.They had been in the village before, looking for militants.
Victims of Kunan Poshpora event 
They turned the lights off and used torches to enter all the homes. When the carnage was over, around 60 women were found lying in their homes either unconsious or weeping in anguish and pain. They had been raped. The victims were old women as well as very young femal children who will now be facing problems for the rest of their lives, if they live this foray by the Indian army. Here we present the testimonies of some of the women who dared to come forward.

Speech delivered by Syed Ali Shah Geelani in LTG Auditorium, New Delhi

This is the text of the speech delivered by APHC Chairman, Syed Ali Shah Geelani at LTG Auditorium, Copernicus Marg, New Delhi on 21st of October, 2010.

I thank the organizers for organizing this historic and impressive gathering. It is not important that all the people over here should agree with the idea of azadi. However, we should love all humans and respect their feelings. Quran mentions that “we have created Human Beings as dignified.” We should not lose sight of this human bond in response to any provocation.

Tonight we are all Tunisians, Tomorrow we could be Kashmiris

"Tonight we are all Tunisians but tomorrow we could just as easily become Kashmiris", Yvonne Ridley comments

Over the last few days we have seen some of the bravest people facing down some of the worst.
Armed with nothing more than a revolutionary heart and hopes of a better future they gathered and protested as government forces aimed their weapons and fired live rounds in to the crowds. But the ammunition and the underlying threats of arrest and torture meant absolutely nothing to the masses – for they had simply lost their fear.
It was the final testament to the brutality of a dictator who has had the support of European leaders and various presidents of the United States.
And that the Tunisian President Zine El-Abedine Ben Ali fled from his country like a rat up a drainpipe after 23 brutal years spoke volumes about the character of the man himself.
If he had one ounce of the courage his own people displayed, he too would have stayed but most of these tyrants are gutless with the moral fibre of a dung beetle.

In Afghanistan we have a lesson to learn

"The responsibility of change and revolution lies on the shoulders of the youth of Kashmir. It is time that they decide whether they want the status quo in the society or a complete transformation, that whether they want luxuries for themselves only or peace and harmony in the whole society, that whether they want the high profile living or a life worth living!" Mehdi Siddique comments

If there is any nation in the whole world which can be regarded as a glorious example of courage, bravery, self respect and dignity, it is Afghanistan. For it is the very nation over which Mughals tried to rule but they failed miserably, the significant efforts of Britishers were made to appear insignificant, millions of Ruble which the Soviet Union did invest accrued nothing, and now the American exercise is also not materializing. This is Afghanistan, where people share no bonds whatsoever with foreign oppressive regimes, their voice is by and large one, their hearts sing the common note and their feet move in the same direction.
Nonetheless whenever we hear the word ‘Afghanistan’ a strange fear grips us, we start imagining things like an atomic bomb exploding, rattles of machine gun and blood everywhere, but the reality is that in Afghanistan many nations have an example to follow, for they are the people who have held high the flag of self esteem, self worth and self possession throughout their history. A nation which sits on the negotiation table with honour and dignity and a nation which meets in the battlefield with strength and valour. A nation far more true and tall than we can comprehend.
Kashmiris must look upon Afghans as the source of inspiration. For this is the place very much similar to Afghanistan where every barbaric ruler and every tyrannical oppressor finds its stakes. From Umnatavati to Mongols to Azad Khan to Dogras, everyone has shown a keen interest in Kashmir. But the problem with Kashmiris is their conscious which is down deep in dreams. Even though the nefarious designs and notorious acts of the criminal rulers were well known, there was no major resistance to these rulers. And thus they successfully completed their terms. These rules came to end not because of the internal rebellion but because of the external strife. Thus one succeeded the other and the ‘poor’ Kashmiris with their mattress and pillows intact slept tight.

O people of Egypt! Verily Allah (swt) is all aware of what you do

Allah (azza wa jal) has bestowed upon you a golden chance, a chance to establish the rule of Allah(swt) on the land of Allah (swt)

In Bukhari on the authority of Abu Musa the Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم said: "Verily, Allah Most High gives rope to the oppressor so that when He seizes him, he does not get away." The he صلى الله عليه وسلم recited:
وَكَذَٰلِكَ أَخْذُ رَبِّكَ إِذَا أَخَذَ الْقُرَىٰ وَهِيَ ظَالِمَةٌ ۚ إِنَّ أَخْذَهُ أَلِيمٌ شَدِيدٌ
"Such is the iron grip of your Lord when He seizes the cities which do wrong. His grip is painful, violent."[Hud, 11:102]
Let the removal of Mubarak be a warning to all the tyrants and oppressors ruling the Muslim world today. Allah سبحانه وتعالى gave Mubarak a long life and allowed him to stay in power for 30 years accumulating masses of wealth. Yet Allah سبحانه وتعالى has power over all things and Mubarak will go down in history as a fallen dictator, whose people hated him and his name will become a synonym for oppression just as his predecessor Pharaoh (firawn) was.

Kashmir: The Essence of the UNCIP Resolutions

When it comes to Kashmir or any other Muslim territory like Gaza etc. human rights, right to self determination and democratic principles become irrelevant. How hypocrite the west is. 
By: Dr Raja Muhammad Khan
There exist a misperception that Pakistan has not implemented the UNCIP resolutions of August 13, 1948 and January 5, 1949. Indeed, this is an allegation, taken as an excuse by Indian authorities for the non-implementation of these two famous resolutions as well as many others.  India indeed, knew that, implementations of these resolutions would expose her act of aggression on Kashmir on October 27, 1947, against whom; Kashmiri were fighting a war of their national liberation from India. The fact of the matter is that, as a result of UNSC Resolution number S.726 of April 21, 1948, United Nations constituted a   five-member commission in June 1948 and named it as the United Nations Commission for India and Pakistan (UNCIP). Its first meeting was held in Geneva on June 15, 1948.

Americans and the west cannot deceive us again: Egyptian Intifada

A letter from Bangladesh
Let me begin by praising Allah سبحانه وتعالى, who has control over all the affairs.
The story of Tunis and subsequently Egypt, Algeria, Yemen, Jordan and the increasing domino effect in the ummah in the greater Arab world is unprecedented for decades. There are many who say that the people in Tunisia have shown and reinstalled a new hope and dignity in the masses across the Middle East to go on the street and protest, put pressure and then topple their regime. There are many who are saying that the fear factor amongst the general people has wiped out and now they are ready to take the matter in their own hands. However, most of us agree that the Middle East we have seen for the last 60 or 70 years has changed once and for all. Just months ago who could have imagined such a reality in the street of Tunis, Egypt, Yemen, and other parts of the middle east. Indeed it is the beginning of the end of tyrants and the servants of America and the western world insha'Allah.

Kashmir as envisioned by Jinnah

"Therefore, Kashmir was not an exception, once the demand of a separate homeland for the Muslims in sub-continent was being made. Kashmir was to become part of Pakistan, and the word ‘K’ in Pakistan is indeed for the state of ‘Kashmir’. As revealed through the available archives, Quaid-i-Azam, visited Kashmir at least four times..." Dr. Raja Muhammad Khan has his say
(courtesy: Opinion Maker)
The eminent British historian, H.V Hodson, while describing the personality of Quaid-i-Azam in his book, ‘The Great Divide’ said,
“Of all the personalities in the great drama of India’s rebirth to independence, Mohammad Ali Jinnah was at once was the most enigmatic and the most important —-it is barely conceivable —-that a new nation State of Pakistan would have been created, but for the personality and leadership of one man, Mr. Jinnah.” Indeed, Mr Jinnah, “was as great as a lawyer, once great as a Congressman, great as a leader of Muslims, great as a world politician and diplomat, and greatest of all as a man of action.” His sudden death, soon after Pakistan came into being, indeed, was a great loss to Pakistan, while the world lost a greatest statesman.

Pakistan-phobia and Indian Morality

Featured Post 
Brother Koshur Mazloom has shattered the peace of mind of millions of Indians with this write up. Go through it and sing in unison WAKE UP INDIANS.

Pakistanophobia is a habit, or I must say a disease which is taking a heavy toll on Indian mindset. Every day there are discussions on Indian TV channels and lenghty articles are written by Indian ‘intellectuals’ in newspapers about Pakistan. This every day dose of anti – Pakistan vitriol on national media has hyponotised Indian minds. Intellectuals like Parthasarthy, GC Singh and Swappan Dasgupta are always seen repeating their gospels of Pakistan bashing on the live Indian television shows. This everyday ‘Pakistan is evil’ brain wash on Indian media has made common Indians so arrogant that they are not ready to listen to any other argument other than the one which has been implanted into their brains.

Understanding Egyptian intifada

Whilst a number of things still remain unclear about the future of Egypt, there is some incorrect reporting that needs to be addressed.
Western Media, particularly the BBC, naturally represent the viewpoint of the journalists, which is the capitalist viewpoint. Far from merely reporting the facts of the events, they appear to have a predefined goal, then hunt for events and people to interview who will help them to achieve that goal. Either it is deliberate or just a plain inability to honestly evaluate their own thinking, hence they assume all others to view the world as they do.
The reporting of the events in Egypt has been no different. The demonstrating Egyptians have had so many words put into their mouths, all aiming to achieve personal objectives of those commenting, but none of them accurate. Little attempt has been made to understand Egyptians as they are, rather than as we would like them to be.
