In the Realm of Darkness


‘A mad man’s ravings, for example, are absurd in relation to the situation in which he finds himself, but not in relation to his madness.’

Jean-Paul Sartre

Another fatwa has been issued against Sherry Rehman by the imam of Sultan Masjid, which declares her a non-Muslim & demands death sentence. In fact a pamphlet has also been published by another clergy man & it has been distributed. However, the iman of Sultan Masjid denies issuing any fatwa whatsoever. Even Tanzeem-e-Islami (TI) said that the organization hasn’t issued & distributed pamphlets against Sherry Rehman.

However, it’s ironic that Muslims are not supposed to called another Muslim kafir or non-Muslim, but it happens quite religiously.

The only pamphlet that has been issued so far is about Tahafus-e-Namoos-e-Risalat & they admit distributing that pamphlet & it’s available on their website. They believe that the PPP government has hurt the feelings of the people by tabling the bill to amend the Blasphemy law through its MNA Sherry Rehman.

However, the MNA said, ‘We are all Muslims, & you can’t be a Muslim without protecting the Prophet (PBUH)’s sanctity.’ These people have not read what exactly being scribbled in the bill.

Anyhow, recently Salman Taseer has been assassinated for raising his voice. 500 lawyers are willing to defend Qadri who is also making YouTube videos in jail & ironically, Salman Taseer’s wife cannot find a single criminal lawyer. I wonder who would be the judge. Even judges & lawyers in these cases are mostly killed by fanatics.

Moreover, 70 pages were created in support of Qadri, but they have been pulled down by FB.

Aasia Bibi has been crying like anything & she said, ‘I know that everything that has happened is because of me. I know in my heart of hearts, that person came here & he sacrificed his life for me.’ Both Aasia & her husband were happy after meeting Salman Taseer. They thought Aasia would be pardoned & set free. He had been the only governor in the history of Pakistan who visited an innocent victim in jail & for that press conference, one community was so much hurt that they thought killing him would be the best option.

Pakistan has become a violent & intolerant state. Anyone who dares to fight for the right cause is killed. We can’t expect much of people who passed fatwas against Mr. Jinnah & called him kafir. They can’t respect anyone. They can only impose their views & when they come across anyone who wouldn’t listen to them, they hate him & issue fatwas.

The common man is left with no other choice but to keep his mouth shut or leave this country. I don’t see any hope. We’re doomed for sure. Speaking up against such laws is dangerous. Even the influential people are not spared. Going on a jahid is far more tough in this age, cause we don’t wage jahid in the battle field anymore.

It’s beyond me to comprehend as to why Muslims are invariably weighing the faith of another Muslim.

‘And on earth are signs for those who have Faith with certainty. And also in your ownselves. Will you not then see?

Surah Adh-Dhariyat

&

‘And indeed We have put forth every kind of example in this Quran, for mankind. But, man is ever more quarrelsome than anything.’

Surah Al-Kahf

God is the only being who has the right to judge us & yet we have creatures playing god everywhere.
