Taliban’s massacre of Ahmadis in Lahore – by Hamid Akhtar and Asadullah Ghalib
Here are two excellent, thought provoking articles on the Punjabi Taliban’s attacks on Ahmadi mosques in Lahore by two senior most columnists in Pakistan. The first article is by Hamid Akhtar: Here is the second piece by Asadullah Ghalib.
رحمان ملک کی کارکردگی شاندار ہے پر بیچارے احمدیوں پر حملہ کرنے والےکون ہیں کوی نہیں جانتا
@Zahid Umar Khan Everyone knows except the Taliban apologists.

And yes, Taliban terrorists are being killed as rabid dogs by Pakistan police and army.
Mullah, Military, Politicians, Ansar Abbasi, Jang say that Pakistani Constitution [Contract] is Islamic and if we applied that Logic then Minorities are Zimmis and please do keep in mind that in Lahore people were slaughtered while they were within the boundary walls of their Community Centres and worshiping without bothering anybody.
Massacre in Gojra and then in Lahore were the biggest and nefarious ATTACKS ON ISLAM ITSELF [AS PER THE SHARIAH WHICH THESE MULLAH USED AGAINST NON MUSLIMS]
Only three Murder/Killing are allowed in Islam [as per Quran and Sunnah]: Murderer, Adulterer and Apostate [Reference: Bukhari] – Ahmedi Community is living as Minority and Muslims particularly the State are duty bound to protect them.
NOTE: Even in the above cases of Punishments, only the State has the authority to administer punishment not the common mob. Assume that tomorrow some Ahle-Hadith rise and declare that Deobandis are Deviant Apostate then would it be justified to do the same as someone did in Lahore. Assume that some Deobandis issue a Fatwa of Apostasy against Barelvis then would it be justified to do what someone did in Lahore. Shia Community is the verge of such danger due to the Calamity of Fatwa Mongering. Pakistanis should wake up and stop interpreting Islamic Laws as per whims and desire particularly the new breed of Urban Maulvis which is the product of Aamir Liaquat Hussain and Co.
We [Muslims] must not forget that even during war following is not allowed:
“Do not kill the monks in monasteries” or “Do not kill the people who are sitting in places of worship” (Musnad of Ibn Hanbal).
“Punishment by fire does not behove anyone except the Master of the Fire” (Sunnan Abu Dawud).
The prophet (PBUH) is recorded as saying, “Do not kill any old person, any child or any woman” (Sunnan Abu Dawud).
1) The Prophet SallAllahu ‘Alaihi wa-sallam said: “March forth in the name of Allah…
Do not kill an old man, nor a child, nor a woman” [Ref: Sunnan Abu Dawud and Sunnan al-Bayhaqi]
2) According to the real Mufti – Ibn ‘Abbas – the Prophet would say upon despatching his armies: “March forth in the name of Allah! Fight those who disbelieve in Allah! But do not betray your trusts and covenants, nor should you kill children, nor monks in monasteries.” [Reference: Musnad Ahmad with Hasan chain according to Ahmad Shakir]
3) According to Handhalah ibn al-Rabi’, the Prophet send a message to Khalid saying: “Do not ever kill children nor labourer” [Reference: Ibn Majah, Abu Dawud, al-Hakim classified it Sahih and al-Dhahabi agreed.
4) ‘Umar ibn al-Khattab said: “Fear Allah with regards to the farmers! Do not kill them unless that wage war against you” [Reference: Sunnan al-Bayhaqi and Ibn Abi Shaiba in his Musannaf]
5) Jabir – may Allah be pleased with him – said about the early Mujahideen, that “they would not kill the Mushrikeen traders”.
Islamic Code of Conduct in War.
The media presents many images of innocent women and children who are victims of jihadist suicide bombers. If jihadists use Islam to justify this violence, then Islamic teachings can also be used to discredit these abhorrent acts. In one Quranic verse, Prophet Muhammad comes across a slain woman while riding in battle, and he frowns with anger. His attitude prompted a distinct code of conduct among Islamic warriors which includes:
• No killing of women, children, and innocents―these might include hermits, monks, or other religious leaders who were deemed noncombatants;
• No wanton killing of livestock and animals;
• No burning or destruction of trees and orchards; and,
• No destruction of wells.
Abu Bakr, the fi rst caliph after Muhammad’s death, formulated a detailed set of rules for Islamic conduct during war. He gave the following instructions to a Muslim army setting out for Syria, which was then governed by the Byzantine Empire: Stop, O people, that I may give you ten rules for your guidance in the battlefield. Do not commit treachery or deviate from the right path. You must not mutilate dead bodies. Neither kill a child, nor a woman, nor an aged man. Bring no harm to the trees, nor burn them with fi re, especially those which are fruitful. Slay not any of the enemy’s flock, save for your food. You are likely to pass by people who have devoted their lives to monastic services; leave them alone. [Ref: Futhooh Al Baldan by Bilazari, Al Bidaya Wal Nihaya and Mawatta Imam Malik]
What happened in Lahore was completely against the Spirit of Islam. No doubt Quadiyanis are Non Muslims [as per Constitution too] but they are Pakistanis [constitution says this] as well and their Rights cannot be violated and if somebody violate these Rights [that too when they were practicing their religion within their Community Centres without bothering anybody] then these Violation would be termed violation of the following sayings of Prophet Mohammad [PBUH]:
قتل غير المسلم إذا كان مُعاهدا معصية وكبيرة من كبائر الذنوب ، فقد روى البخاري عن عبد الله بن عمرو بن العاص رضي الله عنهما قال : قال صلى الله عليه وسلم : ” من قتل معاهدا لم يرح رائحة الجنة وإنّ ريحها يوجد من مسيرة أربعين يوما ” . وأما الكافر الحربي غير المعاهد وغير الذمّي فالمسلم مأمور بقتله لقوله تعالى : ( قاتلوا الذين يلونكم من الكفار وليجدوا فيكم غلظة ) وهذا إنما يكون في الجهاد مع إمام من أئمة المسلمين أو من ينوب عنه
جب غیر مسلم معاھد ہو یعنی اس کے ساتھ معاھدہ ہوتواس کا قتل معصیت وگناہ اورکبیرہ گناہ میں سے ہے ۔
امام بخاری رحمہ اللہ تعالی نے عبداللہ بن عمروبن عاص رضی اللہ تعالی عنہما سے روایت کیا ہے کہ :
رسول اکرم صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم نے فرمایا :
( جس نے بھی کسی معاھد کوقتل کیا وہ جنت کی خوشبوبھی حاصل نہيں کرسکتا ، حالانکہ اس کی خوشخبو چالیس یوم کی مسافت سے پائي جاتی ہے ) ۔
Killing a non-Muslim when he is a mu’aahid (one of those who have a peace treaty with the Muslims) is a sin, one of the major sins. Imam Bukhari narrated that ‘Abd-Allaah ibn ‘Amr ibn al-‘Aas (may Allaah be pleased with them both) said: “The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: ‘Whoever kills a mu’aahid will not smell the fragrance of Paradise, even though its fragrance may detected from a distance of forty days.’”
It is also written in the Quran about Non-Muslims:
Hating them in our hearts does not mean that we should oppress or mistreat them under any circumstances, because Allaah said to His Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), describing what his attitude should be towards the People of the Book:
“and I am commanded to do justice among you. Allaah is our Lord and your Lord. For us our deeds and for you your deeds” [al-Shoora 42:15 – interpretation of the meaning]
even though he is a Muslim and they are following Judaism or Christianity.
Minor Interpretation: The Muslims believe that it is not permissible, under any circumstances whatsoever, for a Muslim to mistreat a non-Muslim who is not hostile towards Islam; so the Muslim should not commit aggression against him, or frighten him, or terrorize him, or steal his wealth, or embezzle him, or deprive him of his rights, or deny him his trust, or deny him his wages, or withhold from him the price of his goods when buying from him or withhold the profits of a partnership if he is in a business partnership with him.
The Muslims believe that it is permissible for a Muslim to treat kindly those non-Muslims who are not hostile, whether by offering financial help, feeding the hungry, giving them loans if needed or interceding with regard to permissible matters, or speaking kindly to them or returning their greetings, and so on. Allaah says
(interpretation of the meaning):
“Allaah does not forbid you to deal justly and kindly with those who fought not against you on account of religion nor drove you out of your homes. Verily, Allaah loves those who deal with equity” [al-Mumtahanah 60:8]
Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
“Say (O Muhammad): O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians): Come to a word that is just between us and you, that we worship none but Allaah (Alone), and that we associate no partners with Him, and that none of us shall take others as lords besides Allaah.’ Then, if they turn away, say: ‘Bear witness that we are Muslims’” [Aal ‘Imraan 3:64]
“And had the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) believed, it would have been better for them” [Aal ‘Imraan 3:110].
It is obligatory upon the Muslims to honour treaties or agreements made with a non-Muslim party. If a Muslim has agreed to their conditions when seeking permission to enter their country (i.e., a visa) and has promised to adhere to that, then it is not permissible for him to commit mischief in their land, to betray anyone, to steal, to kill or to do any destructive action, and so on. Muslims should differentiate between different kinds of kaafirs in their dealings with them. They should make peace with those who make peace, and wage war against those who wage war, and wage jihad against those who stand in the way of spreading the message of Islam and causing it to prevail of earth.
Muslims are commanded to call non-Muslims to Islam with wisdom and beautiful preaching and by debating in a manner that is better. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
“And argue not with the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), unless it be in (a way) that is better (with good words and in good manner, inviting them to Islamic Monotheism with His Verses), except with such of them as do wrong” [al-‘Ankaboot 29:46]
More and more writings just have words in them that mean little to nothing. You have written an article that is very deep in meaning and kept it simple for the average reader to understand.
