An incident of horror took place in Pakistan and many of Nabeel Qureshi's people (Ahmadis) were killed. Seventy (70) people have been killed and many others have been injured.
News report: The assaults were carried out by at least seven attackers, including three suicide bombers, and several worshippers were held hostage, officials said. One gunman fired his rifle while positioned atop a minaret.
However, it seems as though Qureshi is using this to fuel his anti-Islam agenda
Qureshi tells his audience:
"I have heard word from my family; some of my distant relatives (whom I did not know) have been killed. The congregation at my parents' mosque is rife with mourning over the loss of loved ones"
Then (strangely enough) immediately goes on the offensive against Islam:
"This is Islam, ladies and gentlemen. Make no mistake about it. From the very beginning, Muslims marched against Muslims and slaughtered each other. I'm not talking about power-mongers hundreds of years after Muhammad hijacking Islam for personal profit. I'm talking about Ali, Muhammad's closest cousin and one of the four rightly guided caliphs, marching against Aisha, the wife of Muhammad, just 24 years after Muhammad. 50,000 Muslims met each other in battle that day, and 10,000 were slain. Muslims have been killing each other ever since.
Massacre, violence, and brutality from its very inception. This is the enemy we are fighting."
It seems the blood is still wet and Qureshi wants to use it to fuel his agenda against Islam. Have a bit more compassionate thought rather than thought of exploitation, Nabeel. Do you really think your family want you to be blogging an anti-Islam agenda right NOW???
I am not well versed with Pakistani politics and sectarian violence in the country but whenever I hear of such incidents of horror I stop for a moment and feel saddened, I pray for the families of those involved and pray for an end to such violence. May Allah put an end to such violence. Ameen.
Nabeel needs to re-evaluate his priorities; is having a dig at Islam more important than dignity and sensitivity?
The same applies to the insensitive Muslims on the internet who use the abuse scandal to attack the Church and Chrisitanity whilst having a disconnect from any regard of the suffering the victims endured and still are enduring.
Faith teaches us to be more mindful of sensitivities. Let us do this and let us put our agendas to smear people's faith to one side.
I appreciate it is a tough time for Nabeel but this is not the way to vent emotion and stress. I hope David Wood (or Nabeel) sees sense and pulls the post in question as it offers nothing positive.
May Allah help the differing communities in Pakistan get along better. May Allah support Nabeel's family at this time of mourning.
(If any Ahmadi organisation wants help in raising financial help for those injured and the families involved please contact me; I will arrange a collection in London, England, other Muslims will help in doing so...our thoughts are with the families of the victims...note if any demostrations against the Pakistani government are arranged by the Ahmadi community in London I shall attend too in order to support them. This community does not deserve this)
