The Role of Shias in Qadianis' Kafirdom

Chicken coming home to roost for the Shias of Pakistan
Part III of Raahe-Nijaat (the way out) series on Pakistan
In reaction to the ongoing targeted Shia killings in Pakistan as the new “kafirs” (see Some Context for Shia Killings in Pakistan and The New SAVAK in Pakistan), while researching the role of fanatical Sunni sects in condemning the Qadianis previously as the original "kafir" in 1973-74 under ZA Bhutto's Islamization drive to neutralize the American sponsored religious right, I stumbled upon the following gem. Watch this video clip, at time 1m 55 sec:
Chicken coming home to roost for the Shias of Pakistan?

Caption Quoting the late Pakistani Shia scholar, Allama Irfan Haider Abidi, (translation is mine): “All the Muslims in the world would not have been able to declare Qadianis kafir if 'Ali Waale' were not present!” (Allama Irfan Haider Abidi, Qadiyani Aur Sunni Main Farq?, 1990s, time 1m 55s, translated by Zahir Ebrahim)

Caption Quoting the late Pakistani Shia scholar, Allama Irfan Haider Abidi, why the Shia pulpit is protected from officially being declared 'kafir' in Pakistan; which perhaps explains the psychology behind why it was easy for the 'Ali Waale' (video above) to team up with the fanatic Sunni pulpits against the Qadianis' political disenfranchisement orchestrated by ZA Bhutto in 1974 –– when they could have just as easily recused themselves from the political charade even if no one rationally dare declare Shias 'kafir' (translation is mine):
“I am speaking from both Shia and Sunni point of view. In Islam, there is no concept of majority and minority. In Islam only non-Muslims are called minority. (Some instructions to the listeners to pay close attention and to stop sloganeering) In Islam the Muslims are always in the majority (by definition); even if among 200 non-Muslims there are only 2 homes (that are Muslim). And minority is 'scheduled caste'; the non-Muslims are called the minorities. And responsible citizens are sitting here. Our Mr. Shah sahib participated in the formation of the 1973 Constitution, and he knows better; he is also an advocate, and he is very experienced; he has studied constitutional law. Our Mr. Qizalbash sahib is also sitting here; and he also knows. And other law experts must also be present here.
The 1973 Constitution had clearly written the words “non-Muslim minorities” in reference to Personal Law. Meaning, those minority communities which are not Muslim. Personal Law was only for them. We don't except the Western terminology of Personal Law and Public Law.
The 1973 Constitution made it clear-cut that Personal Law will only be for minorities. After that, during the military dictatorship rule when the 1973 Constitution was disfigured, this clause was removed. And then every (Muslim) sect was given freedom to do whatever they want under Personal Law. Every sect does not need freedom in Personal Law to do whatever they want. I am not going to bury my dead by asking the government first. It is my right.
Pakistan's 1973 Constitution was subverted and disfigured through amendments during the military era. Go pick up copies of the Constitution and examine it. This reference to Section 227 that is often made; it was subverted, disfigured. Where other aspects of the Constitution have been disfigured, this has also been disfigured.
Personal Law is only for minorities. And the term "minorities" in Islam is exclusively reserved for kafirs. Until such time that someone does not declare us (shias) kafirs, we don't accept any Personal Law. And there is no such brave person, 'mai ka lal', born to any mother, who can dare declare those who follow Ali as 'kafir'. I swear by God. (cheering).
Writing on doors and walls nothing happens; just writing "kafir kafir", dear listeners, nothing can happen. Because, and this is our only main advantage (or superiority), that no one can ever declare those who say "ya Ali" to be 'kafir'.
And the reason no one can declare that, is because we also say "la illaha illallah", we also say "Muhammad-un rasool ullah", and immediately after that we say "Ali-un vali ullah". And after saying "Ali-un vali ullah", it becomes an automatic announcement (a declaration of faith) that now no more messengers will come, because now Ali's Imammate has commenced! (cheering) Are you paying attention? Reflect again.
As for declaring the Shia-an-e-haidar-e-karar 'kafir', friends, if you ask me my personal opinion, I pray to Allah, someone should really declare us 'kafir', just one time. By just someone's proclamation one of course does not become 'kafir'. And a kafir declaring someone else 'kafir' cannot make the momin (Shia) 'kafir', obviously. (laughter, sloganeering).
But I would like to say at least this little thing, that God willing, it should come into someone's mind to declare Shia-an-e-haidar-e-karar 'kafir'.
Remember, it is from our beliefs that the existence of Pakistan is intimately associated (or dependent). Pay attention, I am stating a very important sentence. And this voice should be spread if the news media representatives whom I had especially invited are present here. My message should be spread, and very responsible citizens are present here.
In all their presence I am stating: it is with our beliefs and (our) Islam that the future of the entire country is intertwined. I am saying just try it – if we are declared 'kafir', constitutionally, Pakistan's Resolution, the 1940 Resolution, the 1945 Convention, the 1930 Allahabad Convention (Sir Muhammad Iqbal's 1930 Presidential Address, Allahabad, 29 December 1930), all these will automatically become null and void!
The entire conception of Pakistan will become null and void. Because, if we are declared 'kafir', then the founder of Pakistan also becomes 'kafir'!” (Allama Irfan Haider Abidi, 8th Muharram 1990 at Karachi, time 43m 55s to 49m 18s, translated by Zahir Ebrahim)
When a people are not very principled, when their rulers' and leaders' politics is based on expeditious reasoning, and political expediency is the foundation of rule of law, as it has been for the entire 65 year history of Pakistan, what goes around comes around. The fact, according to the Shia scholar in the first video above, that the “Ali Waale”, meaning the Shia scholars, participated in conferring that epithet of official kafirdom upon another peoples, the Qadianis, leaves the ongoing Shia killings today in the name of their own kafirdom, with the tail wagging the dog. The logical invincibility proclaimed in the second video not being all that effective in protecting the ordinary Shia peoples from the daily targeted wrath of the barbarians. Someone evidently forgot to inform the murderous barbarians and their manufacturers and handlers that the Shias are invincible!
If there is substantive truth to this matter of the Shia pulpit being instrumental in clinching the theological argument for condemning another people to political disenfranchisement, I hasten to reason with all fairness that before the Shias (and the Sunnis who also will not escape being made victims in similar numbers) can claim any sanctuary from these manufactured barbarians, they must first apologize to the Qadianis. All Muslim peoples of Pakistan must together endeavor to collectively end this long beleaguered minority's political dispossession in order to save their own respective skin. So long as the Qadianis remain “kafir” -- that precedent-setting fault-line among Islam's followers will eventually be made to devour all Muslims.
For each one of you, well, except for the few who are converts to Islam, your religion is your inheritance, just as it is for me. There is absolutely no merit in you being born a Shia, or Sunni, or demerit in being born a Qadiani, and for that matter a Dalit or any other. We were all born in our respective homes and socialized into our worldviews, our faith, our beliefs, our loves, and also our hates (see Islam and Knowledge vs. Socialization). Being condemned and dispossessed of political rights, marginalized and killed, because of one's beliefs – that used to happen in the Dark Ages in most parts of the world, and still happens in Palestine today for the Palestinians under occupation. But why does that still happen in Pakistan? It is easy to point to effects and think them to be the cause. Cause and effect are two different things. Blood-drenched sectarianism is the symptom, like the ugly boil on the syphilis ridden new bride's lip. What is the cause? The principal first cause is the directionless-ness of the nation; carved from blood and dispossession, never forging an independent national destiny, and preferring to continue as the newly freed but still emotionally dependent slave of the massa.
We don't even have a sensible understanding of what is likely obvious to even intelligent first graders in the West. One is criminalized in a civilized society only for one's acts of crime – and beliefs are not a crime in a civilized society. Except, when it becomes Orwellian; when even thought-crimes can be defined by the fiat of law to carry the death penalty. In such a dystopian society, no one is immune from being made kafir, terrorist, or even classified as suffering from a psychiatric illness such as the newly coined “oppositional defiant disorder” and locked away for life --- once that cat of marginalizing a people based on their beliefs is let out of the bag!
So why were the Shia and Sunni Muslim public in Pakistan silent in 1974 when their respective scholars were condemning another minority to kafirdom? When many good people remain silent to the travails of others, the few bad people take over and screw each good people in turn. Duh! It is for this reason that Solon, the ancient Athenian law-giver, advocated for social responsibility as not just a moral requirement, but a legal requirement. When asked which city he thought was well-governed, Solon said: “That city where those who have not been injured take up the cause of one who has, and prosecute the case as earnestly as if the wrong had been done to themselves.”
To overcome that banality of evil has been the principal teaching of all religions, but specifically Islam (see Islam: Surah Al-Asr of the Holy Qur'an and Path Forward: Impacting Muslim Existence). We turned that lofty religion into a bunch of rituals, and my sect's is bigger than your sect's childish rivalry among the few which continued to spread by way of socialization into self-righteousness. Its natural culmination is the barbarianism now being visited upon those previously silent and too busy pursuing their own “Pakistani Dream” – both in and out of the mosques – to give a fck about anyone else's blood being shed. It isn't my blood, my child, my wife, my brothers and sisters, my parents – phew. Let's move on to the next channel see what's playing.
What share should we apportion to ourselves for our public apathy and silence for this carnage that is now Pakistan? We hasten to blame our national misery on the rampages of the pirates, on the greed of the politicians, and on the emperor's armies and think-tanks playing the new great game on the grand chessboard. What has been our tacit role in rubber-stamping their rampages with our indifference, with our abiding signatures, and with our quiet compliance?
Just because you are a Shia, or a Sunni, or a Christian, or whatever other minority peoples exist in Pakistan, and your erudite turban or shalwar-kameez excretes poison for others, especially when you are a majority, you don't have to go along with your tribe “United We Stand”. Have the courage to instead “United We Stand” with moral decency, with civic mindedness, with fairness, with justice, diligently applying the Golden Rule “do unto others as you have others do unto you” to adjudicate upon any and all matters; and today the Shia ass would not be in the line of fire of these antediluvian manufactured barbarians – because the Qadiani ass would also never have been in that line of fire.
To be effective in stopping this carnage for any one sect, the carnage must stop for all citizens regardless of their sect and religion. Given the state of narrow parochialism the mass Pakistani mind has been reduced to today, only a firm separation of religion and state with all citizens accorded the same rights and privileges irrespective of religion; the adoption of the principle of amicable co-existence derived from verse 5:48 of the Holy Qur'an as mandatory for all sects and religions accorded recognition by the state (see Path Forward: Impacting Muslim Existence); and the elimination of religion identification from the Pakistani national identity card and passport; remain the core national first course of action before the country disintegrates completely. Many people all across Pakistan have reached this conclusion of separation of state and religion which all the political founders of Pakistan, without exception, advocated, and the Muslim public who supported them with their own blood, expected. If a referendum is taken today, it should not surprise anyone that the overwhelming majority of the ordinary Pakistani public even three generations later, despite the national dysfunction, will also still agree with it.
The problem is not [the lack of] abstract theory. It is the intertwining of political will and the power nexus in Pakistan that is still entirely beholden to the same white man's burden now merely wearing the indirect “liberal” garb of democracy instead of the iron fisted one of direct colonial occupation. Here is the pertinent text of the founder of beleaguered Pakistan, Mr. Muhammad Ali Jinnah's first Presidential Address to the Constituent Assembly of Pakistan, August 11, 1947. Excerpted from G. Allana, Pakistan Movement Historical Documents, University of Karachi, 1969, pp. 407-411 (via source, cached):
[[7]] I cannot emphasize it too much. We should begin to work in that spirit, and in course of time all these angularities of the majority and minority communities, the Hindu community and the Muslim community -- because even as regards Muslims you have Pathans, Punjabis, Shias, Sunnis and so on, and among the Hindus you have Brahmins, Vashnavas, Khatris, also Bengalees, Madrasis and so on -- will vanish. Indeed if you ask me, this has been the biggest hindrance in the way of India to attain the freedom and independence, and but for this we would have been free people long long ago. No power can hold another nation, and specially a nation of 400 million souls, in subjection; nobody could have conquered you, and even if it had happened, nobody could have continued its hold on you for any length of time, but for this. Therefore, we must learn a lesson from this. You are free; you are free to go to your temples, you are free to go to your mosques or to any other place or worship in this State of Pakistan. You may belong to any religion or caste or creed -- that has nothing to do with the business of the State. As you know, history shows that in England conditions, some time ago, were much worse than those prevailing in India today. The Roman Catholics and the Protestants persecuted each other. Even now there are some States in existence where there are discriminations made and bars imposed against a particular class. Thank God, we are not starting in those days. We are starting in the days where there is no discrimination, no distinction between one community and another, no discrimination between one caste or creed and another. We are starting with this fundamental principle: that we are all citizens, and equal citizens, of one State. The people of England in [the] course of time had to face the realities of the situation, and had to discharge the responsibilities and burdens placed upon them by the government of their country; and they went through that fire step by step. Today, you might say with justice that Roman Catholics and Protestants do not exist; what exists now is that every man is a citizen, an equal citizen of Great Britain, and they are all members of the Nation.
[[8]] Now I think we should keep that in front of us as our ideal, and you will find that in course of time Hindus would cease to be Hindus, and Muslims would cease to be Muslims, not in the religious sense, because that is the personal faith of each individual, but in the political sense as citizens of the State.
[[9]] Well, gentlemen, I do not wish to take up any more of your time; and thank you again for the honour you have done to me. I shall always be guided by the principles of justice and fair play without any, as is put in the political language, prejudice or ill-will; in other words, partiality or favouritism. My guiding principle will be justice and complete impartiality, and I am sure that with your support and co-operation, I can look forward to Pakistan becoming one of the greatest Nations of the world.” --- Muhammad Ali Jinnah's first Presidential Address to the Constituent Assembly of Pakistan, August 11, 1947.
Unfortunately, to undo the Gordian knot of provincialism tied on Pakistani politics since its very inception is gonna take more than a few wise men, regurgitation of theory, and referendum; and isn't that the truth!
There are many lessons to be learnt from history, but the one that continues to impress me is the fact that once a Gordian knot is tied upon any matter, or any nation, a thousand wise men may not be able to untie it. When Imam Ali acquired the reins of the Caliphate due to the public finally pleading with him to take charge of the Muslim nation after its third Caliph's assassination when a Gordian knot had already been tied upon the internal affairs of the rapidly emerging new ruling-state that was fast reaching the shores of the Roman Empire, Persia and India, even the singular “gate to the city of knowledge”, the most fearless warrior and most sagacious saint-scholar of Islam who had protected Islam and its Prophet from the very first proclamation of the religion, was unable to undo the civil wars that besieged his 4-1/2 years in power. He was condemned to the worst internecine warfare that any nation has ever witnessed in order to protect the integrity of the new Islamic state from total disintegration within. As history is witness, that Gordian knot led to the incomparable assassination of his entire family after his own assassination; in other words, to the assassination of the noble Prophet of Islam's own family by the Muslims; and to the creation of the first Muslim dynastic empire by the Ummayads, the children of Abu-Suffian, the greatest antagonist of the Prophet of Islam! This history is so painful for Muslims to accept despite the distance of fourteen centuries that the vast majority still apply semantic sugaring to the abhorrence to make it more palatable to their delicate constitution that is unable to digest reality in its uncooked state. That Gordian knot has affected both the understanding, and the practice of Islam, to this very day. Such is the power of a Gordian knot!
Perhaps the lack of the many wise men in Pakistan who can even begin to tackle the Gordian knot tied upon this nation can be made up by every ordinary man woman and child in Pakistan screaming NO to their own banality of evil; they can stop being silent bystanders while waiting for their turn to become the next victim of the barbarians – both the pirate and the emperor; and stand up to have their presence felt in society. What that means for the upcoming 2013 elections (and all future elections in Pakistan so long as Pakistan remains a geopolitical pawn and vassal-state ruled by house niggers, useful idiots and mercenaries) can be read in Some Context for Shia Killings in Pakistan.

Addendum The Amman Message
The fact that Muslims under the tutelage of their religious as well as secular leadership continue to harbor the ill founded superiority complex borne of uber self-righteousness that they have the right to define who is a Muslim and who isn't, was once again demonstrated in 2005 in The Three Points of The Amman Message. Once again the Qadianis were left out of the fold in that invited congregation of the pious from all over the Muslim world who self-righteously declared:
'(1) Whosoever is an adherent to one of the four Sunni schools (Mathahib) of Islamic jurisprudence (Hanafi, Maliki, Shafi`i and Hanbali), the two Shi’i schools of Islamic jurisprudence (Ja`fari and Zaydi), the Ibadi school of Islamic jurisprudence and the Thahiri school of Islamic jurisprudence, is a Muslim. Declaring that person an apostate is impossible and impermissible. Verily his (or her) blood, honour, and property are inviolable.' ---
What would be incredibly funny in this declaration made at the International Islamic Conference in Amman Jordan under the benefactorship of the Hashemite Kingdom, were it not so pathetic, is that none of the above schools are even mentioned in the Holy Qur'an! And nor is there any doctrine of rule by kings in Islam to legitimize the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan; and nor is there any doctrine of hereditary self-appointment to the position of Imammate in the Holy Qur'an to legitimize the divine leadership of the Aga Khan (see quote from Aga Khan's letter below self-asserting his hereditary right as a divine mandate, no differently than the antediluvian divine right of kings to rule their flock asserted by the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan holding the Conference). The illegitimates apportioning to themselves the right to declare others illegitimate, as is usually the case with power that is flushed with hubris and best captured by St. Augustine at the dawn of the Christian civilization:
When the King asked him what he meant by infesting the sea, the pirate defiantly replied: 'the same as you do when you infest the whole world; but because I do it with a little ship I am called a robber, and because you do it with a great fleet, you are an emperor.' ” --- St. Augustine of Hippo, The City of God against the Pagans, pg. 148
What the Amman Message, signed by more learned scholars and pious dignitaries than I have the impudence to count, was ostensibly trying to do was to ban calling Muslims “kafir” by other Muslims – and yet they chose to define, by their own “Ijma”, who is a Muslim and who isn't.
Instead of defining acceptable vs. unacceptable behavior based on rights and responsibilities for pluralistic mutual co-existence, while paying lip-service to pluralism, they chose to define faith, namely, who is a Muslim and who isn't. And they drew upon their favorite hadith which conveniently sanctioned the very notion of “Ijma”, meaning, consensus among the self proclaimed self-righteous Muslims being a valid method of making judgments on Islamic matters, and extending that to include matters pertaining to faith. Of course, these super learned scholars and brilliant pious leaders of the Muslim world forgot that the greatest example of a consensus is a lynch mob – and that, in a civilized world, a majority consensus does not justify the poor guy on the gallows to be necklaced by the self-righteous mob anymore than a self-righteous nation deny its minority of even one individual a single political and civil right, let alone deny anyone their human rights based on their religious beliefs, or lack thereof, or not in conformity to the majority.
Who are these Amman scholars, convened under the authority of an absolutist monarch, to define who is a Muslim? The Conference would have been more appropriate in debating whether the Hashemite kingdom itself is justified by Islam.
Where does the Holy Qur'an give mortal fallible elites – themselves at the mercy of their limited imagination, limited acumen, but evidently just as infinite in their power-grabs and kingdoms as in their ingrained socialization biases and hereditary prejudices which they self-righteously come to call faith – the right to decree who is a Muslim and who isn't, or which is a legitimate school of jurisprudence and which isn't? Can these elites first create an “Ijma”, consensus, on that question?
No---we don't care to ask the right questions lest it expose our self-righteous bullshit!
By the same yardstick employed at that conference, if Muslim scholars, Muslim rulers, and other Muslim elites participating in it can't create an “Ijma” on the more fundamental question of whether or not hereditary Muslim elites like themselves have the right first, to define another's Islamic faith, jurisprudence, and in general what beliefs are legitimate and what aren't, then ergo, that trumps their reaching any conclusion whatsoever on decreeing who is a Muslim and who isn't.
This Amman conference and its feeble-minded declaration, well-intentioned though it may have seemed to address and bridge a persisting Muslim lacuna of centuries, reduced itself to a sham by first not passing a declaration unequivocally demonstrating their own right to pass such a declaration on who is a Muslim solely from the Holy Qur'an. They would have clearly failed had they even tried to demonstrate their right to do so!
The Holy Qur'an, the singular scripture of the religion of Islam, does not devolve such a right upon any fallible man once someone has proclaimed themselves to be a Muslim. See categorical directives in numerous verses such as: “If ye differ in anything among yourselves, refer it to Allah and His Messenger, if ye do believe in Allah and the Last Day: That is best, and most suitable for final determination.” (fragment 4:59), or “If Allah had so willed, He would have made you a single people, but (His plan is) to test you in what He hath given you: so strive as in a race in all virtues. The goal of you all is to Allah; it is He that will show you the truth of the matters in which ye dispute.” (5:48), etc. Which is why this conference had to rely on historical narratives on “Ijma”, penned by the hand of fallible man in the first place, to dubiously assert the validity of their declaration. They could of course not have used the same external narratives to establish first their own right to do so because then they'd be checkmated by the Holy Scripture itself like the straightforward and categorical verses quoted above.
“Ijma”, whatever its sacrosanctness in consensual decision making on earthly matters, still cannot be against the guidance in the Holy Qur'an, in both letter and spirit. It is a firm rejection criterion. And when it is not against the Holy Qur'an, it still does not mean it has any religious validity, or Qur'anic acceptability, just because it is not against the Holy Qur'an. The latter is not an acceptance criterion, because lot of things not in the Holy Qur'an can be passed of as being part of religion of Islam. This is how any divine religion is adulterated by the fertile imagination, or malice, of man. The notion that a majority of fallible people speaking collectively to ascertain a religious or spiritual truth, whether unanimously or not, will magically come up with the truth infallibly, just by the preponderance of their sheer numbers, is absurd. A thousand zeroes added together still adds up to zero!
While a majority can come together to determine laws and agree or disagree on sociopolitical and scientific matters for instance, that is hardly the yardstick for spiritual matters of faith and beliefs such as deciding who is a Muslim and who isn't. Being a Muslim is entirely a matter of faith and understanding; how one interprets or understands a verse in the Holy Qur'an is entirely one's own shibboleth to bear.
Which is why they didn't even try to first “Ijma” on their own right to “Ijma” on the question that they so easily adjudicated upon, as any adept junior philosopher able to reason would have easily countered them. And those unable to reason are hardly in any position to make any adjudication on any matter to begin with, let alone on such momentous a question as this.
What I find the most disturbing in the Amman Message is that even H.H. Aga Khan IV, the enlightened steward of the Ismailis, their Hazir Imam, signed off on this travesty as his own minority flock was conveniently included in the construction of the definition of who is a Muslim (see excerpt from his letter below). The Ahmedis/Qadianis were obviously not invited for their own funeral. It is the peak of prejudice that the Aga Khan who himself declared in his letter to the Amman conference that he is only the hereditary heir to the Ismaili leadership, should participate in defining who is a Muslim and who isn't. By the Aga Khan's own admission, not just Islam, but also his Imammate of his flock, is an inheritance – the divine right of kings re-birthing in modernity in the religious guise:
'I am happy that we have been invited to participate in the International Islamic Conference being held in Amman, from the 4th to the 6th of July, 2005, under the auspices of the Hashemite Kingdom. In light of the purpose of the conference, I find it appropriate to reiterate, in my message of greetings, the statement I made in a keynote address at a gathering of eminent Muslim scholars from 48 countries who attended the Seerat Conference in Karachi on Friday, 12th March, 1976, nearly 30 years ago, which I had the honour to preside at the invitation of the then Minister for Religious Affairs, Government of Pakistan.
In my presidential address, I appealed to our ulama not to delay the search for the answers to the issues of a rapidly evolving modernity which Muslims of the world face because we have the knowledge that Islam is Allah's final message to mankind, the Holy Qur'an His final Book, and Muhammad, may peace be upon him, His last and final Prophet.
These are the fundamental principles of faith enshrined in the Shahada and the Tawhid therein, which bind the Ummah in an eternal bond of unity. With other Muslims, they are continuously reaffirmed by the Shia Ismaili Muslims of whom I am the 49th hereditary Imam in direct lineal descent from the first Shia Imam, Hazrat Ali ibn Abi Talib though his marriage to Bibi Fatimat-as-Zahra, our beloved Prophet's daughter.
I applaud Jordan, under the leadership of His Majesty King Abdullah, for the foresight in hosting and organizing this International Islamic Conference for the purpose of fostering unity in the Ummah and promoting the good reputation of our faith of Islam. Let this Conference be part of a continuous process of dialogue in the true spirit of Muslim brotherhood so that the entire wealth of our pluralistic heritage bears fruit for the Muslim world, and indeed the whole of humanity; for ours is the heritage which permiates human dignity, transcending bounds of creed, ethnicity, language, gender, and nationality.' ---
Right! For all humanity except the undesirable, the Qadianis in this instance, re-declared not within the fold of Islam by the “Ijma” of the elites gathered at the Conference. Apart from the fact that the Shahada has no specific mention of declaring the finality of the Prophet, the Aga Khan himself declaring his own legitimacy to make such proclamation as only hereditary, undermines his own position as having any legitimacy whatsoever to belittle other peoples' inheritance. The Aga Khan no more chose his religion, and he even inherited its leadership by his own admission, then the Qadianis/Ahmadis, and the vast majority of Muslims on planet earth. One would not be remiss in hazarding the guess that 99% Muslims in Muslim societies are hereditary Muslims. This has two direct implications for the saintly H.H. Aga Khan IV:
(1) By participating in this travesty of denying others their respective claims to socialized faith of birth, and consequently denying them their political and civil rights in the politically charged and fanatically self-righteous climate in Muslim nations which often burn the Qadianis/Ahmadis at stake, the great benefactor of Muslims, the builder of schools and hospitals, the doer of great social works worldwide, is being both hypocritical and political. That is uncharacteristic of the Aga Khan's other public stance of political neutrality under his famous Doctrine of Neutrality. Evidently, he and his ancestors are only neutral when they are up against a stronger power and face existential crisis if they offer any resistance to it. Then they expeditiously choose compromise as the path of sagaciousness since “it can supply a bridge across a difficult period” as was stated by “Sir” Aga Khan the III, the grandfather of the present Aga Khan, in his 1954 Memoirs “World Enough and Time” (PDF, Cached). The sagacious bridge of silence and co-operation with power through times of tyranny. Dumping on the little guys facing their own existential crisis however is of course entirely “Islamic” (sic!). See Ismaili Muslims and Aga Khan's Doctrine of Neutrality (
(2) By participating in the 1976 Seerat conference convened by the Government of Pakistan soon after the Qadianis had been declared 'kafir' by the same Government in 1974, is an endorsement of calling sub sects within Islam 'kafir'. So, I am not sure that some other barbarians now wishing to dish the same treatment to the Ismailis, and the Shias in general, don't just have an abhorrent but rather clear precedent in modernity to fall back upon in defence of their own misanthropy.
You start marginalizing one minority, and sooner or later it comes to your own doorstep. Welcome to the new kafirs, the Shias and the Islamilis. Other Sunni flavors can't be all that far behind.
See “Sir” Allama Iqbal an Ahmadi? ( where this subject of right to belief is separated out from the diabolically Machiavellian modus operandi of cognitive infiltration through religion subversion for “imperial mobilization”. The concluding passage from that examination is pertinent to the discussion herein of the inalienable rights of Qadianis/Ahmadis, as indeed of all minorities in any non-oppressive pluralistic society, and is reproduced below:
'As the final word, the Ahmadis today, born and socialized into their core belief system no differently than any other people, including the Shias and the Sunnis in their myriad Muslim sects, cannot be denied their political rights in Pakistan and continued to be marginalized as “non Muslim”. That infernal question of who is a Muslim and who isn't in the sectarianly infested Muslim polity is only the devil's gambit to sow discord among a foolish people. When a purely theological and academic matter that is best relegated to intellectual discourses in mullah seminaries among the idle caste posing as the self-appointed guardians of faith, is cast in political overtones, then those participating in it can only be the devil's apprentice. Separating propaganda from religious dogma when the two have deliberately been intertwined requires expending matching intellectual energy to confront the villainy, not state sponsored, and mob tyranny. This analysis accordingly has separated the propaganda of imperial mobilization from the right to bear any religion or belief.'
The plague of kafirdom and takfirism, like the label of “terrorism”, is an age old instrument of exercising primacy and supremacy through divide and conquer. Its roots are not new but very distinguished indeed. They go back to the very dawn of Muslim Dynastic empires, to the rise of the first Umayyad dynastic caliphate in the late seventh century A.D. Those unfavorable to the new Muslim kings, those resisting their authority to mount and corrupt the pulpit of Islam, were openly maligned and even cursed from the pulpit itself. The calumny was heaped even on the Ahlul Bayt of the Prophet of Islam, specifically Imam Ali and his descendants, of whom H.H. Aga Khan IV is a distant claimant some fourteen centuries later. The most pious Muslim clergy of the day was harvested for this task in the service of empire first by the despotic Muslim rulers themselves!
Spreading that plague of defining who is a Muslim and who isn't, who is deviant and who isn't, has remained a most potent tool in the hands of despotic rulers and empires throughout the ages. The Shia Muslims who have continued to believe, and still do so today, in the right of Imam Ali and the Ahlul Bayt of the Prophet of Islam to both spiritually as well as politically govern the Muslims as Imams in opposition to all the caliphatic empires, have historically borne the brunt of that plague at the hands of virtually all despotic Muslim rulers for as long as Muslim empires have exercised their suzerainty on earth. The Shia scholars and elites, of all Muslim peoples, should have known better than to participate in spreading this kind of travesty to yet another marginalized minority who self-identified themselves as Muslims.
This plague of kafirdom is eating away at the very soul of Muslim nations today faster than enemy bombs can be utilized for “imperial mobilization”! Its utility to divide and conquer remains unsurpassed. Its poisonous power for propaganda warfare and for mobilizing the masses for internecine warfare is proven time and again. Its logical antidote cannot be selective and arbitrary sanctimoniousness, as the Amman Message self-servingly was, nor favor one sect or school of thought over another, but only principled, as should be obvious to even the ordinary common man of average commonsense and conscience, let alone to the elites who rule nations and the public mind.
The fact that the early scholars and founding leaders of the Qadianis/Ahmadis in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, indeed theologically subverted the religion of Islam to support the tyranny of British colonialism in the Indian subcontinent, and were supported by the British masters with imperial favors and patronage, is self-evident in their own works and in their life and times even today. See for instance the passage pertaining to the famous Qadiani-Ahmadi English translator of the Holy Qur'an, Maulana Muhammad Ali, who tried to interpret verse 4:59 of the Holy Qur'an to legitimize British imperial rule and subvert Indian-Muslim opposition to it in the name of “religion of peace”, in: What does the Holy Qur'an say about Rulership? ( It is reproduced below:
'In fact, the pulpit did not even shy from applying that verse of obedience to the British colonial masters of India as the Qadiani-Ahmadi pontiffs did at the turn of the twentieth-century; Maulana Muhammad Ali, laying its diabolical foundations in his seminal English translation of the Holy Qur'an, first in the Preface under the heading: Reverence for authority, pg. xv wrote: “But while teaching equality of rights, Islam teaches the highest reverence for authority. ... By those in authority are meant not only the actual rulers of a country, but all those who are in any way entrusted with authority”, then elaborated it further in his footnote number 593 for his English translation of verse 4:59 “The words ulul-amr, or those in authority, have a wide significance, ... among those in authority are included the rulers of a land, though they may belong to an alien religion,”!'
The issue of right to belief, right to practice whatever religion one is born into or believes in, freely, without encroaching on others' rights to do the same, and without stepping on others' freedom in the name of exercising one's own freedom, is orthogonal to it. Obviously, if one's religion says to oppress and enslave others, that religion of primacy, the religion of the ubermensh, even if it be in God's name, is not part of this equation of equitable pluralism. Predators can be afforded no sanctuary in a civilized society. The lesser peoples must defend themselves by whatever means that will be effective against such depraved and nihilistic “chosen peoples”. And it goes without saying that any resistance to being eaten alive is always labeled “terrorism” by the predators! As the timeless cliché of moral relativism goes: “If it succeeds it is a Revolution, if it fails it is an Insurrection”. Zionism and global imperialism are these kinds of menacing “religions” today, the highest order enemy of all mankind so to speak. And it is in their interest to keep the rest of the world fighting among themselves with fabricated crises thrown into the mix as catalysts. Religion is its most fertile ground, especially “Islam”. See the Raahe-Nijaat (the way out) series cited at the top of this article to understand the real enemy and his Machiavellian fabrication of fraudulent terror as part of the Hegelian Dialectic – the modern modus operandi for the same age old quest for global hegemony.
We are now living in the twenty-first century. To know who the real enemy is today, to not continually fall prey to its vile narratives and Machiavellian creations that lay the seeds of divide and conquer for generations to come, to not become embroiled in frivolous and ancillary issues such as trying to declare who is a Muslim and who isn't, and to stay focussed on the main enemy who enlists many house niggers ( and other dupes and mercenaries flying different flags and wearing different uniforms in proxy services, takes both intellectual prowess and considerable moral courage. As per Sun Tzu in The Art of War:
'If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.'
Shame on these so called Amman Messengers to have failed the Muslim public when they actually had a slight chance to proclaim some good.

What Role did Shias Play in Condemning Qadianis to Kafirdom in Cahoots with Sunni Scholars in 1974? 17/17

Some Context for Shia Killings in Pakistan

Some Context for What's Transpiring in Pakistan

What Not to do in the Upcoming Elections (and all future elections in Pakistan so long as Pakistan remains a geopolitical pawn and vassal-state ruled by house niggers, useful idiots and mercenaries)

The same victims, the same agenda, the same trigger-pullers, and the same puppetmasters, year after year – WHY?

Part II of Raahe-Nijaat (the way out) series on Pakistan
The New SAVAK in Pakistan, these latest spate of shia killings, should be examined in the context of the Grand Chessboard and the senseless creation of “revolutionary times” across the world will begin to make sense. Pakistan is a component of it. That component is tickled through sectarianism as that is the genius of our peoples. Other nations are tickled according to their own respective genius minds. The New SAVAK in Pakistan works for these superman gods in no less a measure than the old SAVAK worked for its own superman god. Is this stuff rocket science you people? Why can't learned people in Pakistan see it? Especially why can't the high falutin armchair analysts, and the defense analysts, who have routine access to media see it? Look at my examination of the publicly proclaimed Middle East war agenda systematically unlayering the overarching war context ( reproduced below. Does that sound like American empire or Zionist empire to any of you? Or does it appear exactly what it is -- an Oligarchic Empire for World Government being constructed with “an end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece” (Hard Road to World Order, CFR 1974 – read the superman's paper if you think I make things up with my unconstrained hyperactive imagination)!

Com'on you idle spectators and bullshit purveyors (those who deliver crap in the opportunity they get in the media), all my good friends I am sure. Six feet under the maggots can't tell the bloody difference. Only the dead have seen the end of war, says Plato. Sure -- those living see it everyday. And Most recently, in the systematic Muslim killings in Pakistan where, in the immediate aftermath of targeting the Hazara shias in Quetta with a bomb on 16 Feb. 2013, the shia eye surgeon, Dr. Ali Haider, and his 11-year-old son Murtaza Haider (photos above), were ruthlessly and prematurely dispatched to meet their Maker with bullets to their head in Lahore this past Monday, 18 Feb. 2013.

Are We, You and Me, Next? KILL ME I M SHIA -- Courage and perseverance that mirrors the Palestinian defiance living and dying under the jackboots of a superman terrorist state
You, me, all of us, don't speak up right now, you, all of you my friends in Pakistan, they are coming for you and me next (the question in the photo above is not merely rhetorical; the assertion by the child is also not rhetorical, but a dare, a show of courage and perseverance that mirrors the Palestinian defiance living and dying under the jackboots of a superman terrorist state). For, this is the harvest of remaining silent when ZA Bhutto was politically declaring the Qadianis non-Muslims. Watch the confessional speech in Urdu by the brilliant (late) Pakistani Shia scholar, Allama Syed Irfan Haider Abidi, in which he openly apportions due credit to the Shia scholars of the time, of 1974, for participating in that political travesty in support of the Sunni ullema led effort that ZA Bhutto was orchestrating from behind the scenes to neutralize the American sponsored fanatic religious opposition to him (see Profiles of Intelligence quoted in Who Killed Benazir Bhutto for America's role in funding the PNA Alliance of the religious right to finally unseat ZA Bhutto,
Chicken coming home to roost for the Shias of Pakistan

Caption Quoting the Shia scholar (translation is mine): “All the Muslims in the world would not have been able to declare Qadianis kafir if 'Ali Waale' were not present!” (time 1m 55s) See Role of Shias in Qadianis' Kafirdom
Who gives the right to man to challenge another's beliefs; let alone deny a people their political, religious, civil, and basic human rights, including to not be killed by either the pirates or the emperors for their “deviant” beliefs (inheritance), their race and ethnicity (also inheritance), their land (assets), or for their being the wretched of the earth and eliminated to lessen their own misery (sic)? See Islam and Knowledge vs. Socialization.
When you open that can of worms of Takfirism, especially by the state giving legitimacy to calling one group “kafir”, well, now the Shias and Ismailis are the new “kafirs” today. Following that, who's next? YOU, my Sunni friends, who are silently watching the spectacle of Shia deaths and demonization, just as both together previously spectated the Qadiani pogroms in silence; you and your parents, and your siblings still living in Pakistan and unlucky enough to not have the Green Card or Canadian citizenship. It is these cracks and lacunas in our crippled sectarian ethos which make Muslims perennially ripe for the fertile seeding and rich harvesting of “revolutionary times” in our societies. Unless we do something to screed over these sectarian cracks that are Machiavellianly enlarged into “geopolitical fault-lines” by empire builders for their own “imperial mobilization” (see example of how sectarian cracks can be used for divide and conquer), we are burnt toast.
And learned people who are supposed to have the wherewithal to lead the charge, to educate the public mind to what's really going on, to motivate them to stand up, have all been turned into glorified House Niggers and useful idiots.
Never too late to throw that yoke of servitude---even for house niggers and silent bystanders---and for selfish reasons of self-preservation if not for altruistic concern for anyone else.
What can the Pakistani public do with Pakistan presently diving deeper and deeper into the endless quagmire leaving an endless stream of dead bodies behind, and the upcoming elections promising change?
Two things to begin with.

ONE: Perceptively understand the overarching motivation of the super-terrorists in order to come up with proper self-defence

Among all the patent lies and deception the “vulgar propagandist” (Noam Chomsky's epithet, not mine) Bernard Lewis spinned on Islam over the years, the one observation he most accurately made was: “Terrorism requires only a few. Obviously the West must defend itself by whatever means will be effective. But in devising means to fight the [super]terrorist, it would surely be useful to understand the forces that drive them.”
Well, obviously, victims of the superterrorists must also intelligently play at that table to defend themselves by whatever means will be effective!
To be effective however, one minimally has to be at least as intelligent and sophisticated as the foe so that one can figure out its Machiavellian game. Unfortunately, intellectually lazy people, foolish people, people unread in the political theories that motivate and guide the foe, and those patiently waiting for Allah to destroy the foe, cannot play at that table except as canon fodder.
It is a game of primacy. The predator is orders of magnitude more advanced and resourceful in its thinking than the sheep it is using as bait and canon fodder to achieve its objectives.
The Pakistani mind minimally has to put itself in the shoes of the superterrorists; study what he has studied, read what he has read and written, understand what he has understood, in order to acquire at least some appreciation for the sophistication of the devil before them. To beat the modern devil, one has to at least comprehend its villainous methods.
And its first method is to make nothing as it appears. Behind everything that's made visible to the observation of the naked eye of experience, there is quite another reality and quite another motivation at work. See unlayering reality (reproduced below).
This will lead all of us who are capable of understanding, to comprehend that virtually all modern variants of “Islam”, the trifecta of “militant Islam”, “moderate Islam”, and “revolutionary Islam”, are creations of, or aided and abetted by, and sustained by, diabolical minds working assiduously on “imperial mobilization” over a lifetime. See Hegelian Dialectic.
None will therefore be fooled by them!
This means Shia Muslims won't be fooled by Shia version of “revolutionary Islam” to bring back the glory days of nizam-e-wilayat despite their partisanship with the Shia sect, and Sunni Muslims won't be fooled by the Sunni version of “revolutionary Islam” to bring back the glory days of Caliphate and dynastic empires despite their partisanship with the Sunni sects.
These revolutionary exercises in many cases have little to do with the religion of Islam and its 1.6 to 2 billion ordinary believers --- but with methods of creating “controlled chaos” by cognitive infiltration of the religion. Which means, creating chaos that is predictable, its tempo increasable and decrease-able at will, and switch-off-able when its purpose is harvested. At present, that tap control resides in the West. It is entirely independent of the local population which therefore cannot break through its strangulating grip in the normal fashion. Just like the “Iron Wall” that surrounds Palestine. That diabolical construct was accurately described by Vladimir Jabotinsky: “This colonization can, therefore, continue and develop only under the protection of a force independent of the local population – an iron wall which the native population cannot break through.”
Something similar to that “Iron Wall” protects these mal constructs of “Islam” rapidly devouring our nation while simultaneously lending the much needed pretext to the West for sustaining its “imperial mobilization”. Its strategic and full spectrum redressing takes more than just ineffectively banning these terrorist organizations (which has been tried halfheartedly in lip-service to the Hegelian Dialectic), or ineffectively curtailing their antediluvian “Islamization of Pakistan” programs (which is bandied about by their presumed antagonists, the so called secular humanists who are the second line of useful idiots of empire, the first being our leaders, those who are not outright mercenaries that is). The Path Forward ( is to astutely engage with Qur'anic Political Science examined in: Case Study Why is the Holy Qur’an so easy to Hijack? (PDF), in order to neutralize the dispersive power of these rapidly evolving killer viruses with efficacy, making the native Muslim soil permanently infertile for their incubation.

TWO: Don't vote in the upcoming elections thinking it will make things better

Only when the ubiquitous existence of perspective-pollution (see definition in “The Art and Science of Co-option”) is recognized as epistemological (see definition in “Some Problems in Epistemology”), and its effects even marginally overcome, does it become obvious what is really going on in Pakistan behind the many public puppetshows.
Almost miraculously, with the fog lifted, it becomes straightforward to see through the election illusion foisted upon the nation. The public mind liberated from the shackles of crippled epistemology and self-serving partisanship, perceptively sees, by the weight of empirical evidence, that faux-democracy is merely the continuation of colonial rule, only disguised!
After the Musharraf era military dictatorship had run out of steam to aid and abet massa's imperial mobilization under its propaganda cover of waging World War IV against “militant Islam” – the perpetual “global war on terror” – a change of attire became necessary. So we got ten years of neoliberal democracy after almost a decade of neoliberal military rule; Dr. Zardari and company followed by followed by Dr. Nawaz Sharif and company, once again not only vying to surpass each other in wealth accumulation and pecuniary graft scandals that are still on going, but also in their continuation of support of Musharraf era America's World War IV and Musharraf introduced "enlightened moderation" to undo the traditional mores and values of the Muslim society. Some betterment! Fed up with choosing between democratic crook and democratic crooked? No problem. Now we can have a return to military rule as the savior of the nation from the graft scandals. They now look a lot better don't they; at least patriotic soldiers who don't fear laying down their lives on the LOC, and not patriotic soldiers of fortune who don't fear plundering the wealth of the nation, will be in charge of important matters of the state which they already are anyway.
Oh, but we are also fed-up with that cycle that's been run just too often and there is no change in the life of the common man except for the worse? No worries. We can now choose from among the many flavors of nizam-e-mustafa and Dr. Imran Khan & company, or some new revolutionary get-up amenable to the current crop of Pakistani genius, all of whom shall worry about the common man and leave incomprehensible matters of state to the military. But what about the noble man in uniform? Isn't he genuinely patriotic - so what's wrong with that? Yes indeed, and his high command meets up with the Western high command to get his overarching marching orders! It is all out in the open --- the Americans have paid countless billions of dollars for the services of their proxy army, of which only the public numbers have been variously reported as $33 billion since 9/11. It is likely a lot more than that --- for who is auditing the secretive accounts of all the different modes of American aid to Pakistan and America's payments for the rental state's services (euphemism for state for hire)?
It isn't a state secret that we offer the state's services and land and airspace to anyone who can pay: from land bases and logistics support to the American military for their criminal adventures in poverty-stricken fourth-world Afghanistan, freedom for its drone attacks on Pakistani citizens on Pakistani soil, protection and immunity from prosecution for crimes committed in Pakistan by the American soldiers of fortune in the rare case that they are caught (Raymond Davis), giving free rein to American intelligence apparatus to operate in Pakistan as their own back yard, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera; to Saudi Arabia which appears to own us outright as proxy agent of the Americans; to the Arab rulers of the Gulf states who love to privately hunt rare and protected migratory birds over our territories in lieu of what form of payment and favors only the state knows; to God only knows what state assets we have hawked to China and what debts incurred for posterity in a secret deal for CPEC whose details the state insists shall remain classified and need to know.
We have indeed been reduced to a status far lower than a vassal state. Our social fabric has been torn asunder, our dignity and self-respect made as rare as the migratory birds, and hunted just as fervently to root it out completely. Don't know what polite and PR-correct name to give to what Pakistan has been turned into, except “slave state”. What is sadder is that the rank and file don't know what to do about their own destiny, and they are more than 90 percent of Pakistan. Many are hungrily waiting for Allah to bring salvation. Others clutch at every straw thrown our way. They lap up the sales pitch of every used car salesman who can command our airways, our streets, and fifteen seconds of our attention. The elites could be the least bothered; they continue to live like the Parisian aristocrats, kings and princes, before the storming of the Bastille.
This is the success of the next generation style of modern warfare, which the American think-tanks call Fourth-gen warfare (and now into its Fifth-gen version which evidently attacks the moral fabric of society): to demoralize and destroy a nation from within, without dropping a single atomic bomb! The advantage over Third-gen warfare is that the conquered nation becomes a permanent slave state without the need of reconstruction expense which also tends to put people back into their natural stride. This has been witnessed in both Japan and Germany after their reconstruction from the devastation of Third-gen World War II, and also from the reconstruction of Iraq after its Third-gen destruction. The Iraqis have now regained at least their own dignity and self-respect by its indigenously grown Hashd-al-Shabi people's military force resolutely defeating the American proxy brigade that had come wrapped in the “militant Islam” flag and infected both Iraq and Syria in the form of ISIS and Daesh. This defeated virus was saved from complete extinction by its allies and covetously airlifted to Afghanistan to target both Iran and Pakistan.
Change of attire makes no difference to Pakistan's prescribed role on the Grand Chessboard. None of the fundamentals are permitted to change for a vassal state / slave state unless the massa wants it changed to suit its imperial enterprise!
The exercise of colonial rule in post colonial era requires a continuous supply of a house nigger class, a mercenary class, and a useful idiot class as the local apparatchik of the massa. Pakistan is rich in these classes for some strange reason, and new generations are born into them almost every day in both civilian and military attire. Their common overarching mission: to make the public mind to accept the prescribed rule so that the servants can continue doing the massa's bidding while making a pretty penny for themselves. It makes no difference whether it is military dictatorship or faux-democracy; the public mind is made to support, or at least acquiesce to, whatever rule is being foisted upon the nation for the massa's overarching agenda to be exercised during that period. The errand boys and girls as the local apparatchik only get to see a tunnel vision of the massa's directives, and usually it is made to appear to be in their own narrow self-interest (or the nation's self-interest if a particularly patriotic useful idiot is being brought to power; mercenaries and godfathers of course don't really care). When the rule's times-up, whether by the clock, or by public discontent, the attire is simply changed.
All this is now obvious as daylight to many people in Pakistan, but perhaps not to everyone. High time the nation, its rank and file, the wretched of the earth, and the white-collar cats in their comfy offices, all took off their dark glasses and stopped being simpletons.
Boycott the forthcoming Pakistani elections (and all future elections in Pakistan so long as Pakistan remains a geopolitical pawn and vassal-state ruled by house niggers, useful idiots and mercenaries).
Not participating in the ballot is a resounding NO vote to reject the entire corrupt system. Do not participate in a fabricated system designed ab initio to continue its servility to massa; all waters run only Westward, even if wearing the turban, the beard, clean-shaved, in uniform, in awami-libas, in duppatta, in burqa – and that includes Imran Khan, the favorite savior of the young generation.
Imran Khan is some part of the right-wing Difa-e-Pakistan Council (Defence of Pakistan Council – DPC) group of “militant Islam” formerly known by different acronyms some officially banned: SSP1, LeT2, LeJ3, JeM4, ASWJ5, JuD6, TNSM7, etc., (I lost track), who are state-sponsored, and even openly supported by the Punjab government (PML-N’s Chief Minister in Punjab Shahbaz Sharif et. al.), and by right-wing elements of the intelligence and military apparatus as the state's proxy agents out of uniform. And of course, Imran Khan also occasionally flirts with the “moderate Islam” of Tahir-ul-Qadri. Both the (Hegelian Dialectic of) “Islams” are domestically sponsored, principally under the hierarchical sirparesti (aiding and abetting), of different factions from within the Pakistan military, which in turn is paid from the Western tax-payers hard earned monies to become the coveted Military Inc. of Pakistan with the Western powers' great blessings. This praetorian guard, a rising newer “feudal class” in Pakistan, is now fully invested in staying America's proxy army in Pakistan! This is how power actually flows in Pakistan behind the veneers and puppetshows put up before the public – be it the elected Parliament, or the many variants of “Islam”. Without the military's minimally tacit approval, not a fly can buzz in Pakistan. It would be found riddled with bullet holes the very next day, if found at all after its disappearance.
The fact that so much is made of going after the militant groups for example, by display-bombing their foot soldiers and those among whom they live, meaning, unarmed innocent civilians who become “collateral damage” of either being dead or IDP (see Swat Operation where the civilian displacement was headlined “In Pakistan, an exodus that is beyond biblical”, photo), and doing absolutely nothing to the white collar “respectable” peoples and institutions who are fathering them, both in the civilian and military state apparatus, speaks volumes in its own language of omission. It explains why these groups cannot be rooted out completely despite all the military operations against them over the years by both the United States and Pakistan militaries, and which has, in fact, only succeeded in creating newer crops of recruits to harvest from for future patsy services. See my September 2009 report “The Decapitation of Pakistan by its own Military!” for the detailed forensic scrutiny of Pakistan's role in manufacturing the organic motivation for recruits of “militant Islam” under American foreign policy imperatives and payments.
The combined output of all these variants of “Islam” sprouting in the ever fertile soil of Pakistan and their open and secret benefactors, is to fertilize the groundwork for the creation of “revolutionary Islam”, whether or not they each realize it. We are, after all, looking at a lifetime of World War IV. Many teams have to play their part, and it seems to me that “revolutionary Islam” has been gestating in the oven too long. I am sure General Hamid Gul (late) understood this better than the brainless posterboy of modernity, Imran Khan, his foolish rapidly aging protégé who has been dying to become president (or prime minister) of Pakistan at all cost. A good donkey to ride on for the ubermensch.
But then again, perhaps not, After all, inter alia, it was this traitor Pakistani General, the so called grand spymaster of Pakistan, who in his own intellectual brilliance and great military wisdom, enabled the United States to give “to the USSR its Vietnam War” on Afghan Muslim soil next door, while purveying the fiction of “strategic depth” to string the Pakistan army along. The presence of unity of command in Pakistan under a military general's rule has been absolutely essential for all of America's imperial mobilizations. That is just an empirical observation. The military chain of command is conditioned to obey orders without question, and ours obviously excel at it without any moral calculus. All it takes is one man in uniform at the top – and we have had more than our share in the hierarchy of command who have proudly carried the white man's burden and still died holily in bed. Facts sting? Kill the messenger of course.
I once had a long conversation with a former director of ISI the day after his daughter's wedding at which I was an unofficial (hobbyist) photographer. When I presented the bride and groom with a beautiful photo album of their wedding pictures that I instantly had processed the same day, the father of the bride invited me to join them for lunch, which I did. In the conversation he disclosed that he was a former director of ISI, and when I explained to him where he got his specious “strategic depth” from to fck Pakistan, he simply couldn't believe nor refute the commonsense of my straightforward observations. I held him to rapt attention for the entire time and all he could murmur was: why did it not occur to us? None of these brave Generals are known for their commonsense. Groomed at Westpoint and Sandhurst, they reach their positions of power in Pakistan's military hierarchy only after being vetted by the white man to be psychologically able to carry the white man's burden on Pakistan's back without complaint. As I noted in 2008 (
'In 2007, while the 'Army Act 2007' was still in effect, I offered two Pakistani military men, recently retired 3-star generals, whom I had occasion to partake a meal with in Islamabad, that I could craft any terrorist to their specification for them for a mere $15000 – a number that I conjured up out of thin air thinking it was suitably low to impress upon them how easy it was to harvest the surviving victims whose parents, wives, daughters, sons, had been bombed to smithereens, who had nothing to look forward to in life except the abyss of hunger, deprivation, and alienation, and especially from among those holding the 'Pakhtoonwali' tradition. I was trying to rationally talk them out of bombing our own peoples in the tribal belt in this fictional 'war on terror' by explaining to them how Machiavellian political science works. I had held their attention for over 3-1/2 hours. And I was rather stunned when one of the 3-star generals of Pakistan's Army, and let me hasten to add (Retired), responded to my 'jihadi manufacturing challenge' with “Zahir you are asking too much, I could do it for $2000”!'
Imran Khan may prove to be the worst Trojan horse of them all – why? Because he is presented as “Mr. Clean”. He can therefore do even more harm as a patriotic useful idiot which is what he appears to be. Because, unlike the mercenaries we have already experienced in Pakistan who always look out for their own self-interests first, the useful idiot actually believes in his cause and will willingly die for it, taking everyone else down with him as well. Ever hear of the suicide bomber? That's an extreme example of a useful idiot for sure, but to carry the abstract thought experiment just a little further, imagine now the useful idiot as the head of a nuclear weapons state? Suitably controlled and motivated useful idiots can be deadlier than mercenaries working for pecuniary gain, and that's just a self-evident fact.
As an intelligence and Western asset, groomed by Gen. Hamid Gul et. al., Imran Khan may yet deliver the worst nightmare to simpleton Pakistanis, far beyond the measure of personal pecuniary gain and fiscal mal feasance that occupied the labors of his predecessors. Some of his plans, or rather strawman ideas (expressed for the 2013 elections), are outright scams that would only feed the fresh crop of plunderers on his team from the gravy-train of state treasury. His energy plan or his socialized education plan for instance? After HEC under Atta-ur-Rahman and Sohail Naqvi for a decade squandered billions in hare-brained crappy projects, Imran Khan is proposing to spend trillions, 2.5 trillion in fact, to replace one crap with another crap. He wants to make English compulsory and the principal medium of instruction after 8th grade in Urdu medium and public schools, to bring them at parity with English medium schools; and teach everyone in Pakistan the same standardized curriculum. Everyone will now be equally mediocre! What is that mother? Even India which is ahead of us in all metrics of mass education, does not have such an insane policy. Yet they have IITs which surpass the best IVYs in America in terms of competition to get in. The son of Infosys president couldn't get into IIT so he went to Cornell – as a safety school!
We don't have one decent university in Pakistan where I would love to send my own children and this moron now wants to spend 2.5 trillion rupees in another boondoggle? Increasing literacy rate is great goal for any nation – it cannot be carried out in a slave state with no economy to absorb them. You take people away from their natural habitat, and you provide them no ability to survive in the new habitat, and you only end up raising a generation of mal contents.
The development of a nation cannot happen overnight – only its rape and theft in the name of doing speciously sounding great things can happen overnight. It took the West hundreds of years. Lee Kuan Yew, the late Prime Minister of Singapore who governed that tiny nation of industrious Chinese, Malay, and people of Indian origin, for over thirty years, said he did not have 200 years like the West to develop his country, and succeeded in uniquely bettering that recipe. As did South Korea. Pakistan however is a nation of 211 million plus mostly illiterate peoples the majority of whom are unemployed, or employed in menial jobs, and in agriculture sector as serfs to a handful of landlords. Copying other nations blindly with good intentions is like a moron transplanting a foreign tree in a local soil that cannot sustain it. Just like Atta-ur-Rahman did, and no one could challenge that mother for his hare-brained schemes that turned Pakistan's higher education universities into diploma mills for third-rate and often plagiarized work (see my report: Masterpiece of Plagiarism in Pakistan, , sent to the Supreme Court of Pakistan inviting their suo moto action on the scale of the systemic problem—but also ignored by them). I shed tears of anger every time I think about what well-intentioned fools have done to us, often as child's putty in the hands of Machiavelli.
As for Imran Khan's energy policy? You think anyone in Pakistan has the balls to go against the WB-IMF tag team which has neo-liberalized, i.e., privatized, our economy under enormous debt burden? See what Thomas Friedman says about protecting and recovering American investments and values abroad: “The hidden hand of the market will never work without a hidden fist -- McDonald's cannot flourish without McDonnell Douglas, the builder of the F-15. And the hidden fist that keeps the world safe for Silicon Valley's technologies is called the United States Army, Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps.” (A Manifesto For a Fast World, Thomas L. Friedman, March 28, 1999, New York Times)
Imran Khan is just offering more scams and only fools and simpletons will go for them---that is our Pakistani genius. The jury is still out however whether he is only an overzealous useful idiot or something more pernicious. Watch him and his confrere, the flag-bearer of “moderate Islam”, Dr. Tahir-ul-Qadri, partake at the massa's table in the 2011 World Economic Forum. Invited there to ensure that the brown-nosing horses run in the future electoral races will all be compliant to the white man's burden! These two-bit house niggers, groomed into power in Pakistan the same way Benazir Bhutto was, have the balls to stand up to the massa? With what? The Pakistan military works for the same massa, are paid from the same coffers, as does the entire bureaucracy, the media, public and private institutions, and what is now almost a fashion to be considered avant-garde, to call oneself a think-tank, and all echo the same core axioms of the massa, live off of its largesse of aid, and occasionally play controlled dissent as WWF (

They are neither financiers, nor industrialists, and nor do they hold any economic or financial ministerial position within the government of Pakistan. Yes, as Western intelligence assets managed by their local counterpart, both are being rewarded for selling the massa's pitch on “moderate Islam” (even in their occasional controlled dissent with the Pakistani establishment which is most dutifully towing the massa's full line on “militant Islam”). And Tahir ul Qadri specifically for his “600 page Fatwa on Terrorism”. Both house niggers artfully retain the core axioms of massa on “militant Islam” to continually push the envelope of the Hegelian Dialectic forward as a self-fulfilling prophecy!
I say, enough of being fcking simpletons!

Unlayering the Middle East War Agenda: Making Sense of Absurdities

Sunday, January 23, 2011

This is a response to the unforensic focus on the Middle East War Agenda which permeates the alternate media even today, well into the 10th year of the New Pearl Harbor, orchestrated like the Nazi's Operation Canned Goods to “goosestep the herrenvolk across international frontiers” – first into Afghanistan, Iraq, gradually inching its way throughout the arc of crisis, next target: the Crescent of Crisis, Iran. Time magazine had quoted Zbigniew Brzezinski self-servingly presaging these very events in 1979 at the cusp of the Iranian Revolution: “An arc of crisis stretches along the shores of the Indian Ocean, with fragile social and political structures in a region of vital importance to us threatened with fragmentation. The resulting political chaos could well be filled by elements hostile to our values and sympathetic to our adversaries.” (U.S. National Security Advisor to President Jimmy Carter, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Time, Jan. 15, 1979)
It was in the same year that President Jimmy Carter's National Security Advisor, waging a clandestine proxy war upon the USSR, had started giving covert aid to the CIA backed Afghan mercenaries (later renamed “Mujahideens”) to foment sufficient agitation at the flank of the USSR to provoke a Soviet Intervention in Afghanistan to protect their own hegemonic interests: “According to the official version of history, CIA aid to the Mujahadeen began during 1980, that is to say, after the Soviet army invaded Afghanistan, 24 Dec 1979. But the reality, secretly guarded until now, is completely otherwise Indeed, it was July 3, 1979 that President Carter signed the first directive for secret aid to the opponents of the pro-Soviet regime in Kabul. And that very day, I wrote a note to the president in which I explained to him that in my opinion this aid was going to induce a Soviet military intervention.” After the Soviet Union had taken the bait and invaded, blood-thirsty murderer playing chess in other peoples' blood, Dr. Zbigniew Brzezinski confessed in 1998 that he again wrote to Jimmy Carter back in December 1979: “The day that the Soviets officially crossed the border, I wrote to President Carter. We now have the opportunity of giving to the USSR its Vietnam war. Indeed, for almost 10 years, Moscow had to carry on a war unsupportable by the government, a conflict that brought about the demoralization and finally the breakup of the Soviet empire.” (1998 interview to French magazine Le Nouvel Observateur)
Thus, the arc of crisis which Brzezinski had glibly predicted in January 1979, was firmly seeded by January 1980 as the Carter Doctrine (see Time magazine Selling the Carter Doctrine, Feb. 18, 1980), otherwise known as “God is on your side” (, to set it all ablaze in the coming future. Sufficiently implanted with the necessary explosive mix of religion, “jihad”, hostage crisis, Iranian Revolution, Soviet intervention in Afghanistan, drug trade, and sectarian fanaticism unleashed in Pakistan by the hanging-judge-military dictator General Zia Ul Haq installed there by the Carter White House in support of the CIA cultivating and harvesting “Islamic Mujahideens” to fight the USSR, it didn't take much ignition beyond the priming. The fire quickly became self-sustaining as new recruits grew up in the lighted cauldron and couldn't easily distinguish their head from their ass – especially with the Pakistan military being in full collusion with the CIA in screwing both Pakistan and Afghanistan society on the Grand Chessboard. Today, these war criminals pat themselves on the back for destroying the USSR with Muslim and Afghani blood costing the complete destruction of what was previously a still stable Afghani and Pakistani society – but they'll all hang someday even if their carcass has to be dragged out from six feet under. In 1996, Zbigniew Brzezinski renamed the arc of crisis in his next geostrategy book The Grand Chessboard, with an even more imposing epithet, “the global zone of percolating violence”, illustrating with maps galore the arc of crisis for those still uninitiated into the vagaries of the exercise of American Primacy and Its Geostrategic Initiatives of the sole unchallenged superpower. (see page 53)
That foretold future – explicitly and very publicly presaged in 1979 in a popular weekly magazine read by all and sundry not just in the United States, but in the entire world – fully unleashed by the New Pearl Harbor on September 11, 2001, had the former US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice self-righteously justify the purpose of America's hegemonic cultivation of “the global zone of percolating violence” in 2006 in these sacred words: “What we’re seeing here, in a sense, is…the birth pangs of a new Middle East and whatever we do, we have to be certain that we’re pushing forward to the new Middle East, not going back to the old one.” (U.S. Secretary of State to George W. Bush, Condoleezza Rice, July 21, 2006)
All the preceding is what the blood thirsty hectoring hegemons have themselves narrated.
But comparing their narration to empiricism tells a slightly different story.
That War Agenda today to “birth pangs of a new Middle East” is still variously blamed upon:
  • the Zionist agenda for Eretz Yisrael,
  • and/or upon the sole superpower's Primacy and Its Geostrategic Initiatives to preemptively acquire and extract the natural resources in the Middle East and Central Asia before any other nation or group of nations can rise to challenge its dominance.
The former Zionist agenda is pitched as the ungodly wars waged by the Jewish neoconservaties who dominate Washington, blueprinted in their PNAC and other Wolfowitz drawn strategy documents for Securing the Jews-only Realm.
The latter superpower agenda is pitched as the wars of primacy for America's sole preeminence, blueprinted in Zbigniew Brzezinski's The Grand Chessboard and in Pentagon's many Joint Vision strategy documents (
Both premise, while appearing sensible in 2003 when I too employed them in my maiden book Prisoners of the Cave, in the light of today's empiricism outright lead to absurdities.
America is going bankrupt due to these global wars with rising national debt which now stands in the 13 trillion dollar range as officially reported by the US Treasury, and its budget deficit this year, 2011, is 1.4 trillion dollars. This means America has to borrow, i.e., have its central bank the Federal Reserve print, 40 cents for every dollar it spends, thus also commensurately increasing the national debt and the burden upon the already suffering American tax payer.
What sort of idiotic primacy agenda for preeminence is that?
The United States hasn't been able to extract any of the natural resources either from the Middle East and Central Asian soils anymore than she was already extracting previously – as much as it wanted – with its own coddled dictators firmly in power.
Why did she need to wage murderous wars to decimate the region to remove its own cultivated dictators?
It also sure hasn't been good for the Anglo-American oil companies – they can't do business when the region is torn asunder by the cycle of insurgency and counter-insurgency ( manufactured by the Anglo-American Allies themselves. Same in Afghanistan – no pipelines, only the so called quagmires, as even the mainstream news of the United States puts it.
As for Israel, if Eretz Yisrael is the principal reason for decimating Iraq with millions of tons of Depleted Uranium munitions, destroying its fertile top soils and bountiful water tables, not to mention the ancient DNA of its inhabitants, and with only immense hatred and ire of its millions of Arabs now irretrievably implanted to greet the Zionist from Israel if they ever set foot onto its soil for resettlement, then the Jews can't really occupy that land for themselves now can they?
What did the Israelis really gain by brutally removing the servile Iraqi puppet of their own client state, the United States?
Only chaos in the region!
What Zionistan's founding father, David Ben Gurion, would have easily called “revolutionary times”. Well, according to that science of hegemonic conquest, these chaos-like conditions in the Middle East have also only created more fertile grounds to administer further mind-fcks to the natives because “what is inconceivable in normal times is possible in revolutionary times”.
What other benefit? Perhaps some smaller equally compliant but unstable ethnic principalities carved out of the former equally compliant monolithic and stable Iraq, which today lies in ruin.
But wait, NO Eretz Yisrael!
Only enormous hatred for Israel, and America.
What an agenda for preeminence!
Only the keystone cops could have blueprinted it.

Reality is almost like an onion.

Comes in layers.
The outer layer, when peeled, shows the next inner layer.
And so on down to the core.
It is difficult to get to the core of reality, without first unpeeling it, layer by layer.
The empirical fact however is that it is not mentioned in the mainstream, and by many others in dissentstream either, because the conspiracy is to not even acknowledge that the onion exists at all for social engineering of ‘United we Stand’ and ‘introducing beneficial cognitive diversity’ to mislead the public.
But the outer layer of the onion is not the entire onion, however persuasive and inviting it may appear!
These are mere labels, the neocons, neoconservatives, neo-cons, they mean nothing by themselves.
America has been involved in warfare from Wounded Knee to Afghanistan, and before WWII, there were no neo-cons by that name.
So how does one explain America’s vast military-industrial-academe-media complex which is what actually wages the wars? How does one explain America's national security state?
But why do they wage wars?
For Israel?
The focus on Israel, and the Jewish Lobby, in my view, can at times be a gigantic red herring. See:
The real focus must remain on the oligarchy which funds all sides of wars, and have been doing so for 250 years, and for what eventual purpose?
The War on Terror, the war on Afghanistan, the war on Iraq, the war on Pakistan, the war on Iran, on whatever mantras and asinine pretexts, by themselves make no sense – as the war of neo-conservatism – and it is easy to pin it upon the most visible harbingers for their most obvious motives! The outer layer of the onion.
And what about the silent economic wars ( of neo-liberalism – aka free trade?
Thomas Friedman best captured the interplay of these two sides of the imperial coin – the thunderous wars of shock and awe, and the matching silent wars of hunger and deprivations due to the loot and plunder of global natural resources via the stranglehold of contrived third world debt – in his 1999 New York Times column titled Manifesto for a Fast World: “The hidden hand of the market will never work without a hidden fist -- McDonald's cannot flourish without McDonnell Douglas, the builder of the F-15. And the hidden fist that keeps the world safe for Silicon Valley's technologies is called the United States Army, Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps.”
But peel down behind both types of wars, behind both philosophies of primacy which are as old as hegemony, as old as mankind, and we get World Government.
Global Governance would not be possible without the transformative abilities of these wars which seed controlled chaos, deprivations, disenfranchisement, and fabricated public appeals to authorities to resolve matters. Which of course they subsequently do, with greater and greater centralization of powers into the private hands of the same oligarchy who create the very crises for which they ex post facto present their own preferred solutions. See: Response to Financial Times Gideon Rachman's 'And now for a world government' (
David Ben Gurion aptly described this Machiavellian modus operandi as “what is inconceivable in normal times is possible in revolutionary times”.
The unlayering is important to get to the heart of the matter, quickly, before it is too late. And one of the reason it is not unlayered in time, is to seed fait accompli. That is the master political science ( To understand this political science which is time-critical and which is what enables only narrating these matters ex post facto, see: “Of Ostriches and Rebels on The Hard Road to World Order” (
That too, by itself, is still not the inner most core of the onion, only the next layer down, but it already demonstrates that focus on the outer layer of the onion of reality, the visible reality, makes for a great red herring.
No one in Plato’s cave can ever figure out the reality behind the images on the screen, by examining, and in no matter what excruciating a scholarship, the images on the screen before them.
That is why the outer layer of the onion, whether one sees the onion at all or not, is often pointless garbage.
Whenever I cook dinner at home, I always throw away the outer layer of the onion, it tastes terrible :-)
Thank you.
