Do Not Invite Israeli Apartheid To Your Iftaar Table


Sha'ban 20, 14452024-03-01

With the approach of Ramadan, Muslims begin to think of items for Iftaar. One of the essential items is dates. Muslims must not purchase and consume Israeli dates that are produced on stolen Palestinian land and packaged under misleading labels. We provide the list.

US Military Bases In West Asia


Rajab 20, 14452024-02-01

The West Asia region bristles with US military bases. It is not difficult to surmise who they are meant against. The illegitimate Arab regimes facilitate these bases to undermine the Islamic Republic.

World Beyond The UN


Jumada' al-Ula' 17, 14452023-12-01

Despite its high-sounding principles, the United Nations has demonstrably failed to prevent wars, protect the weak and provide justice. The reason is that three of the five permanent members of Security Council have hijacked its agenda. It is time to think of establishing an alternative organization.

Demonizing Hamas To Justify Israel’s Genocide In Gaza


Rabi' al-Thani 17, 14452023-11-01

Telling lies is part of politics, especially in the west. Politicians, however, lie to promote the interests of their own countries. In zionist Israel’s case, western politicians tell lies to justify zionist crimes against the Palestinian people. It is truly disgraceful.

Suicide Bombings During Prophet’s Birthday Celebrations In Pakistan


Rabi' al-Awwal 16, 14452023-10-01

Terrorist attacks have become routine in Pakistan. The victims are almost always innocent people. Merely condemnation will not solve the problem; the root causes of terrorism must be addressed. Only a representative government can do that, not an army-imposed regime.

Landing On The Moon Does Not Whitewash Indian Crimes On Earth


Safar 15, 14452023-09-01

All countries try to project their best image to the world. This is done to paper over their less savoury conduct. India may bask in the glory of landing a spacecraft on the moon but its horrific mistreatment of minorities and brutal killings represent its true nature.

How To Confront The Qur’an-burning Menace?


Muharram 14, 14452023-08-01

Muslims must find more creating ways of confronting episodes of Qur’an-burning in Sweden and Denmark. Merely holding demonstrations and shouting slogans, while reflecting Muslim anguish, will not resolve the issue. It requires hitting the offenders in their pockets.

The Zionist Disease


Dhu al-Hijjah 13, 14442023-07-01

Zionism is not only a racist ideology it is also a disease that has infected many people. It has to be eradicated to have a healthy society in Palestine.

Dealing With The Zionist Menace


Dhu al-Qa'dah 12, 14442023-06-01

Since the implantation of the zionist entity in the heartland of Islam, there has been no peace for the people of Palestine or indeed the broader region. The racist ideology of zionism must be defeated for there to be a chance for peace in the region.

The End Of Pakistan As A State


Shawwal 11, 14442023-05-01

A state must fulfill certain conditions: provide security to its citizens as well as food, education and healthcare. Justice is another important aspect. In Pakistan none of these services are available to the people. The state has not only failed but it has withered away.

Pakistan’s Gangster Generals


Ramadan 10, 14442023-04-01

Pakistani generals are a criminal lot. Unable to confront arch-enemy India, they frequently launch wars against their own hapless people. Pakistan’s current political and economic crisis is the direct result of the generals’ illegal interference in politics to block elections from being held because they will return Imran Khan to power who has vowed to go after the corrupt politicians and generals.

Reviving The True Spirit Of Ramadan


Sha'ban 09, 14442023-03-01

Ramadan is a month of fasting, a month of giving but above all, a month of engaging the noble Qur’an in a more profound way. Muslims must address the root causes of the mass poverty that afflicts hundreds of millions of Muslims worldwide amid plenty.

Solidarity With Kashmiris Under Indian Occupation


Rajab 10, 14442023-02-01

Kashmiris are one of the most oppressed people in the world. They are also the longest-occupied people. These necessitate expressing solidarity with the people of Kashmir under India’s brutal occupation and seek ways for their liberation.

The Year 2023


Jumada' al-Akhirah 08, 14442023-01-01

While the war in Ukraine will likely continue to dominate headlines in the year 2023 because that is what the collective west wants, US mischief-making will also continue in full force. Losing their pre-eminent position globally, American warlords are becoming more belligerent.

The Year 2022: The Past As Mirror To The Future


Jumada' al-Ula' 07, 14442022-12-01

Like previous years, 2022 has been a pretty nasty year for most people globally. We look at the bad and the not-so-bad developments of the past year and what it may portend for the future.

Pakistan Sinks Into A Blackhole


Rabi' al-Thani 06, 14442022-11-01

Pakistan has become a sad case of the army fighting against its own people. The deliberately-engineered crisis can be blamed on one man: army chief Qamar Javed Bajwa who is about to retire on November 29. Before he goes, he seems determined to inflict more harm.

The UN: A Colossal Failure


Rabi' al-Awwal 05, 14442022-10-01

The United Nations was established in 1945, even before the Second World War formally ended, with the stated aim of preventing future conflicts, to resolve disputes through peaceful means and prohibited the threat or use of force against other states. The UN has demonstrably failed in all these areas.

Pakistan’s Descent into Fascism


Safar 05, 14442022-09-01

Pakistan has become an absolutely fascist State. People that call for punishing, through legal means those that have indulged in illegal acts, are being arrested, tortured and sexually abused in prison. The main culprits in this sordid affair are the army chief and the criminals and rapists that he has imposed as rulers on Pakistan!

Who should Administer the Affairs of Hajj?


Dhu al-Hijjah 02, 14432022-07-01

After two years of restrictions, Muslims were looking forward to performing Hajj but the Saudis have imposed new restrictions especially for pilgrims from North America, Europe and Australia. We have long argued that Hajj administration should be taken out of Saudi control. They are not the owners of Hajj and unfit to run its affairs.

Imam Khomeini, Islamic Revolution and The Imposed World Order


Dhu al-Qa'dah 01, 14432022-06-01

June marks another anniversary of Imam Khomeini’s departure from this temporary abode to join heavenly company. In bringing about the Islamic revolution, he challenged the global order imposed by the victors of the Second World War. It has revolutionized people’s thinking worldwide.
