Imran "Taliban" Khan, Abdul Sattar Edhi & Trip to China!

Those who say that this War in not ours should take a deep breath and go through the newspapers of 90s and they may find that much before 911 "The Sectarian Killings of Shia Community" were rampant in Pakistan throughout the Tenures of Benazir and Nawaz Sharif. That dunce Imran Khan and super genius Hamid Gul say time and again that this isn't our War and PML-N has also joined the Mantra conveniently forget these Harsh Facts which have been properly reported in the media: Wiki Leaks on Deobandis & Muʿammar al-Qaḏḏāfī. http://chagataikhan.blogspot.com/2011/05/wiki-leaks-on-deobandis-muammar-al.html  This War was imposed on Pakistan not by USA but by Pakistani State right after the death of General Zia when Aslam Beg became COAS and it was he and his minions who Unleashed "Sectarian War dogs i.e. Non State Actors on Unsuspecting Pakistanis.

Jang Group/The News International/GEO TV are quite fond of quoting PEW RESEARCH:)


The public is reacting to the killing of Osama bin Laden with relief, happiness and pride. And Americans overwhelmingly credit the U.S. military and the CIA for the success of the operation. An overnight survey of 654 adults, conducted by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press and The Washington Post finds that 72% say they feel "relieved" by Osama bin Laden's death, while 60% feel "proud" and 58% say they are "happy." Far fewer, just 16%, say the news of bin Laden's death makes them feel "afraid." The public has high praise for the U.S. military's role in the killing of bin Laden, with 86% saying they deserve a great deal of the credit. Two-thirds (66%) also give a great deal of credit to the CIA and other intelligence agencies who tracked the al Qaeda leader and located his hideout. Both the military and the intelligence agencies receive high marks across the political spectrum. Nearly all Republicans (96%), as well as 82% of Democrats and 88% of independents give the military a great deal of credit. Similarly, 75% of Republicans, 64% of Democrats and 68% of independents give the intelligence agencies a great deal of credit. Roughly a third (35%) say Obama deserves a great deal of credit and another 41% saying he deserves "some" credit. Just 21% say he deserves "not much" credit or none at all. About half of Democrats (52%) give Obama a great deal of credit, but only 17% of Republicans do so; 36% of independents give the president a great deal of credit. George W. Bush is given a great deal of credit for the killing of bin Laden by 15% of the public, and an additional 36% given him some credit. Nearly a third of Republicans (31%), 16% of independents and just 4% of Democrats give Bush a great deal of credit.

To a question about political settlements with militants, Imran asked that if the US was negotiating with the Taliban what was stopping us from entering into a dialogue with the militants.

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Saturday said the parleys between Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani and Afghan President Hamid Karzai were like a puppet-show, having no importance. Talking to media persons here, Imran alleged that the Pak-Afghan dialogue would have no tangible results. He advised Pakistani rulers again to hold talks with the Taliban, as the United States, which claimed to be the only superpower was already engaging the Taliban and even not putting a condition of laying down of arms. About the NRO, he said it was an attempt to grab power and in return subjugate Pakistan to the US and undermine ISI as well as the Army. Imran said PML-Quaid Nawaz Sharif was also unleashing criticism on the military to realise his foreign agenda. He also came down hard on Interior Minister Rehman Malik. When asked about the PTI election strategy, Imran said party tickets in the next elections would be given to only those who neither had their assets abroad nor were defaulters. Imran said in response to a question what would be PTI’s criterion of awarding party tickets that candidates with credible credentials would be given party tickets to take part in the electoral process if and when held.REFERENCE: Imran calls for talks with Taliban our correspondent Sunday, June 12, 2011 http://www.thenews.com.pk/TodaysPrintDetail.aspx?ID=52147&Cat=2&dt=6/12/2011

He made it clear even if the PTI came to know about misinformation about any candidate before or even after the election, action would be taken there and then without any delay. The PTI maintained Pakistan would have to have an independent foreign policy but this could only be possible after having relied on the country’s own resources. “Independent foreign policy and a sound economy are interlinked,” he contended. Imran pointed out that over 80pc taxes were indirect, which clearly meant taking away money from the masses to meet expenses of the rich and elite ruling class. He lamented no firm economic policy was adopted in the last 63 years and the rulers relied on foreign lending for their lavish style and spent not even a penny on the common man and instead put a burden of dollar 68 billion on Pakistan. Imran said the so-called sympathisers of Pakistan and its people stood exposed, who had their accounts and assets, whereas they wanted to keep befooling the people by their rhetoric.

In one his above sermon "Imran 'Taliban' Khan" has narrated a Hadith (Traditions of Holy Prophet Mohammad - PBUH) about the importance of Seeking Knowledge even if one has to go to China but there is a one big problem that "Mufti Imran Taliban Khan" doesn't even bother to authenticate and confirm that whether this Hadith was Valid or Simply Concocted!

"QUOTE"


This narrative does not appear in any reliable Hadith collection and finds mention only in some of the less authoritative works. Different scholars have recorded it from a very weak and unreliable chain of narrators. The Sanad (chain of narrators) and Matn (text) of the Ḥadīth, as quoted in Allamah Ibn Abdul Barr’s Jami‘ Bayaan al ‘ilm, follows:

اخبرنا احمد حدثنا مسلمة حدثنا يعقوب بن اسحاق بن ابراهيم العسقلاني حدثنا يوسف بن محمد الفريابي حدثنا سفيان بن عيينة عن الزهري عن انس بن مالك قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم:اطلبوا العلم و لو بالصين فان طلب العلم فريضة على كل مسلم

Ahmed narrates from Muslamah who narrates from Ya‘qub b. Ibrahim al Asqalani who narrates form Yusaf b. Muhammad al Faryaabi who narrates from Sufyaan b. ‘Uyayna who narrates form Al-Zuhri who narrates from Anas b. Malik that the Prophet (pbuh) said: Seek knowledge even [you have to go to] China, for seeking knowledge is a duty binding on every Muslim.

According to the authorities, the narrative is a fabrication. Ibn al Jawzi in his work al-Mawzu‘at, ‘Allamah Dhabi, in his work Tarteeb-al-Mawzu‘at and Allamah Nasir Uddin Albaani in his Silsilah Ahadith Zaheefah commented that the narrative is a fabrication and has no basis in the sources.

With regard to the hadeeth mentioned, “Seek knowledge even if you have to go as far as China, for seeking knowledge is a duty on every Muslim,” Shaykh al-Albaani said in Da’eef al-Jaami’: “(It is) fabricated.” (no. 906).

The proven hadeeth is that which was narrated by Ibn Maajah from the hadeeth of Anas ibn Maalik, who said: “The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: ‘Seeking knowledge is obligatory upon every Muslim.’” (220. Classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh Sunan Ibn Maajah. What is meant by knowledge here is knowledge of sharee’ah (Islamic knowledge). Al-Thawri said: “It is the knowledge for which no person has any excuse for not knowing.” And Allaah knows best.

أما الحديث المذكور وهو حديث : ( اطلبوا العلم ولو بالصين ، فإن طلب العلم فريضة على كل مسلم )

قال الشيخ الألباني في ضعيف الجامع ( موضوع ) برقم (906) .

والحديث الثابت هو ما رواه ابن ماجة من حديث أنس بْنِ مَالِكٍ قَالَ : قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ ( طَلَبُ الْعِلْمِ فَرِيضَةٌ عَلَى كُلِّ مُسْلِمٍ ) ( 220 ) وصححه الألباني في صحيح سنن ابن ماجة . والمقصود بالعلم هنا هو العلم الشرعي . قال الثوري : هو العلم الذي لا يُعذر العبد في الجهل به ، والله أعلم .

Caliph Imran Taliban Khan is also very fond of Blackmailing, Strong arm tactics particularly when he is in company of General (R) Hamid Gul (The Former Infamous rather Notorious ISI Chief) and subject is an innocent and harmless "Social Worker" like Abdul Sattar Edhi.

Here is a very old news "culled" from Daily Dawn 1996 about Abdul Sattar Edhi: The last of these rings a bell. It was a proposed pressure group that made Maulana Abdul Sattar Edhi see red a little over a year ago, leading him briefly to abandon the leadership of his mammoth humanitarian operation in Karachi. He revealed little beyond that his life was in danger after he had turned down an offer to join a subversive lot to destabilise the Benazir Bhutto government, and that Imran Khan was somehow involved in it a charge which, despite its vagueness, the former fast bowler has never satisfactorily been able to explain away. At the time, Imran Khan association with retired General Hamid Gul prompted speculation that the ex-military intelligence chief, notorious for his Afghan exploits and an inveterate foe of Ms Bhuttos regime, was up to no good. The stigma has not disappeared, and it will be interesting to see whether Hamid Gul has an upfront role in the forthcoming organisation.

Q. Have you ever been approached by political or other groups for support?

A. Once, I was approached by General Hamid Gul, Imran Khan and few others, mostly military and intelligence officials, who were conspiring to overthrow Benazir Bhutto`s second government and wanted me to get involved. I declined because I am a social worker and not a politician. I also did not want to tarnish the credibility of my organisation by getting embroiled in something that obviously seemed quite disturbing. Eventually, I was made to feel threatened enough to temporarily leave the country.



Abdul Sattar Edhi, the founder of the Edhi Foundation, is unarguably the most renowned philanthropist in Pakistan. - Eefa Khalid/Dawn.com


“Pakistan is at a critical make-or-break stage” By Qurat ul ain Siddiqui March 15, 2010 http://archives.dawn.com/archives/66970 

Abdul Sattar Edhi, the founder of the Edhi Foundation, is unarguably the most renowned philanthropist in Pakistan. He began his work in 1951 with the opening of a free, one-room medical clinic in Karachi. Currently, his foundation runs 250 centres across the country and houses more than 2,000 children at any given time.

The centres also provide free burial of unclaimed bodies, free health care and dispensaries, rehabilitation of drug addicts, free assistance for the handicapped, and family planning counselling. Over 6,000 destitute, runaways, and mentally challenged individuals are also in the foundation`s care. The Edhi Foundation has also managed to raise the largest single fleet of ambulances in Pakistan, providing transportation to over one million persons annually. The foundation is also involved in relief efforts for victims of natural and other disasters on a national and international level.

Dawn.com speaks with Edhi to gauge how the foundation has been affected by the ongoing political and security situation.

Q. Your foundation is involved in a range of activities. How do you decide what projects to pursue?

A. My work involves supporting those who have no one to look after them. That also involves looking after the dead bodies and arranging a respectable burial for them. I cannot say no to anyone.

Q. Is there any part of the country where your organisation has encountered problems owing to the security situation?

A. We have never had any serious problems with anyone. There have been incidents reported by our workers and volunteers regarding hide-snatching [during Eid-ul-Azha] in the past, but we are operating as we always have. In fact, we are also planning to establish centres in Tank and Hangu. Even the Taliban haven`t made any trouble for us; they donated money to the foundation and said they did so because I was helping those who couldn`t help themselves.

Q. The foundation has accepted donations from the Taliban; does that mean that you agree with their ideology?

A. No, I do not. I also told them that I do not agree with all the violence and destruction and the effect it has on people`s lives. To that, they said they were not behind the attacks that targeted civilians and ordinary people.

Q. What is it that makes your angry?

A. I don`t get angry – it`s not in my nature. Sometimes [my wife] Bilquis and I have arguments, but that`s all.

Q. Do you think philanthropic organisations such as yours cause the state to further abscond from its civic responsibilities?

A. If the state can ensure that all who are subject to pay taxes do so, that would be a good enough start. If people were to honestly pay their taxes and also give charity, it would solve more than half of the country`s problems.

Q. In 2008, eight children were abandoned by three women at an Edhi Foundation centre. The foundation later paid the families Rs. 100,000 each to take the children back. Are pay-offs of this kind effective when the root causes for children being abandoned are not addressed?

A. Pay-offs are, of course, no solution, and we normally do not hand out money like that. Usually, we give shelter to children whose families abandon them, primarily for monetary reasons. The day people stop abandoning their children at our centres, I will believe that things are changing in Pakistan. But that does not seem to be happening. It is also quite clear that the government does not get actively involved, so I have no hope of people getting support from the state.

Q. No hope? Isn`t that a fatalistic position to take regarding the state machinery?

A. It is. But how can I have hope in a state that is being exploited by the current system – a system that is itself being manoeuvred by groups with no commitment to the people of this country. The whole political frame as it currently exists has to reinvent itself before we can even begin to hope for change in Pakistan.

Q. Have you ever been approached by political or other groups for support?

A. Once, I was approached by General Hamid Gul, Imran Khan and few others, mostly military and intelligence officials, who were conspiring to overthrow Benazir Bhutto`s second government and wanted me to get involved. I declined because I am a social worker and not a politician. I also did not want to tarnish the credibility of my organisation by getting embroiled in something that obviously seemed quite disturbing. Eventually, I was made to feel threatened enough to temporarily leave the country.

Q. How do you see the future of Pakistan?

A. I will continue to do my work and serve the people. However, Pakistan is now at a critical make-or-break stage, and if the system does not undergo a major overhaul, I am afraid that the country may even break up. Given the current conditions, it will take nothing short of a calculated, studied revolution to change things and save Pakistan.
