A “Muslim” Did It?
But Then What Did the Other Muslims Do?

Dr. Pasha

(Written nearly two years ago)

 

Our Considered Policy: Not to Comment

www.IslamicSolutions.Com and Pasha Hour International do not, as a rule, comment on current events. And that is mostly for lack of resources.

To the extent we can, we do not like to address issues we do not have sufficient resources to thoroughly research, analyze, understand and arrive at certain definitive conclusions.

For, our mission is to bring clarity and not to create confusion or cause obfuscation.

We certainly are not doing any of the things we do for name or fame for ourselves.

Or as a means of livelihood, for, we quite strongly hold that it is better to be a cobbler in the street, eking out an honest living, than to make money off of Islam and Muslims.

Especially in the tragic times we seem to be living, in which Islam and Muslims have become the surest and easiest passport for name, fame and wealth for both Muslims and non-Muslims alike.

Non-Muslims seem to make millions of dollars by badmouthing Islam and Muslims. Demonization, defamation and slander of Islam and Muslims a thriving global industry.

And Muslims make a bit of money themselves doing one “Islamic” thing or another from selling “HalalMeat to running “Islamic” institutions and organizations and “Retreats” of one kind or another.

They even have Halal Booking and Halal Travel – and Halal everything else. Some jokers may even have something they may call Halal Beer!

Islam is big business no matter how you look at it. And as the Qur’an says, Allah seems to be helping everyone have their share of whatever it is that they crave and strive for:

Kullan Numiddu, Haa-ulaa-I, Wa Haa-Ulaa-I …

Choosing Light over Darkness

We want to be able to spread light and create hope. We want to open eyes and not shut down minds. And we do not wish to spread darkness.

In the language of the Qur’an we choose Noor (light) over Zulumaat – all kinds and layers of darkness and murkiness.

To do that requires an enormity of all kinds of resources which at the moment Allah in his infinite wisdom and mercy has chosen not to bestow upon us.

But some events and incidents do seem to call for urgent comment, and reflex reaction, no matter how sparse our resources and how inadequate our research and analysis, even though in doing so one runs the risk of being hasty or even wrong.

The Rape and Gang-Rape Crisis in India, and the association in some cases of these reported rapes of Muslim-sounding names, is one such case in point. We no longer can withhold comment on it, no matter how quick our reaction may appear to be.

Maybe God Almighty some day, and we hope and pray that day is soon, will provide us the resources that will enable us to do all the research and the analysis we need to undertake before we are ready to comment on any of the other ongoing events and crises around the world.

Loving the World and Serving It

Make no mistake. I love India as much as I love America. Or any other part of God’s beautiful earth for that matter. And that includes the Land of the Brits with whom I have all kinds of issues going back when.

Loving the world and finding ways to serving it by any means possible is in my genes. And that to me means Islam.

But loving someone does not mean leaving them alone. It certainly does not mean standing by and doing nothing when the loved ones are about to be run over by a truck.

Right now, the truck that is about to run over the Muslims of India may be themselves. And it has been for a very long time.

India’s Hate Machines

Words fail, and emotions overreach, as anyone with any sense of decency ponders any of the hate machines churning wild in the length and breadth of beautiful, blessed India. While perpetrators are many, topping the list of targets and victims are mostly Muslims.

From meticulously planned economic annihilation to perfectly choreographed genocidal massacres, and mass rapes, Muslims of India have seen it all.

And they continue to be the staple fodder for the hate machines of India.

The Enemy Within

While anti-Muslim hate and hostility need to be addressed and stopped by any means moral and legal, Muslims of India also need to mount an urgent and sweeping campaign to save themselves from the enemy within: themselves.

While there are many levels at which this needs to happen, one glaring area is association of Muslim-sounding names with acts of rape.

Story after story appears in the press, and the press is what it is, that identifies one or more of the perpetrators of gang-rape as Muslims.

These stories are either true or totally or partially fabricated. If they are the product of media’s fevered brain, then Muslims of India – and Muslims around the world, for, Muslims, I am told are one people – must take steps to combat these lies.

Even though I do not believe Muslims have either the will or the capability for doing it.

What If the Rape Stories Are True?

If, on the other hand, any of these stories are true, then the question is what are the Muslims of India – and Muslims of the world – doing about it?

What is being done to save Indian Muslims from themselves?

While I have read any number of stories associating Muslim names with rape and gang-rape perpetrators in India, I have not come across any serious idea or initiative directed at saving India’s Muslims from themselves – from their own worst behaviors and inclinations.

I have not seen or heard of any meaningful steps being taken to save India’s Muslims from certain death and destruction not only in this world but also in the next world, which is where the association of their young men in rape and gang-rape activities will most certainly lead them.
