NEW DELHI -Teams of gunmen attacked three luxury hotels, a hospital, a train station, a movie theater, and other buildings in Mumbai late last night, killing at least 101 people and wounding 280 in a rampage through the heart of India's financial capital, police said. The attackers took dozens of people hostage, and witnesses said they were seeking out Americans and Britons.

NEW DELHI, Nov 27 (Reuters) - An organisation calling itself the Deccan Mujahideen has claimed it was behind attacks in India's financial capital Mumbai that have left at least 80 people dead, television channels reported on Thursday.

The previously unknown or little known group sent an email to news organisations claiming responsibility.

India has suffered a wave of bomb attacks in recent years. Most have been blamed on Islamist militants, although police have also arrested suspected Hindu extremists thought to be behind some of the attacks. (Reporting by Simon Denyer; Editing by Alistair Scrutton)


Who are the master minds?

The most controversial voice, spreading hate speech and communal hatred in India and the region, is that of Dr. Zakir Naik, a sugar-coated religious scholar who is, through his speeches, lectures and TV talks, spreading hatred against Hindus, Christians and Jews alike.

Storm over fatwa against scholar Zakir Naik

LUCKNOW: A fatwa (edict) against well-known Islamic scholar Zakir Naik by a respected cleric here has divided the community.

The scholar has been charged with supporting al-Qaida chief Osama bin Laden. The fatwa says his teachings are un-Islamic and contradict the Koran.

Naik, however, says he has been misquoted. “My speeches are being quoted out of context… I am being targeted by people with vested interests,” he told reporters.

Lucknow’s shahar qazi Mufti Abul Irfan Mian Firangi Mahali described Naik as a kafir (agnostic) in his fatwa, which states he should be ex-communicated from Islam.

“Zakir Naik is not an Islamic scholar. His teachings are against the Koran. In his speeches, he insults Allah and glorifies Yazeed, the killer of Imam Hussain,” Irfan told reporters. He said Naik had supported Laden and called upon all Muslims to become terrorists. “Naik is bringing a bad name to Muslims. Such people should be condemned and socially boycotted.” He said Naik was being financed by the Wahabi sect that allegedly perpetrates violence in the name of religion.

“There should be an inquiry into how he is running a TV channel on his own. Where is he getting the funds from?”

“Naik has just mugged up some verses from the Koran and pretends to be an Islamic scholar,” Lucknow’s Naib Imam Maulana Khalid Rasheed Firangi Mahali said.



"I am with Osama. Every Muslim should be a terrorist." - says Zakir Naik

Spreading hatred, Dr. Zakir Naik. Refused to condemn Al-Qaeda. Says that that 9/11 was an insider conspiracy by the USA:

Non-Muslims must not have equal human rights in Muslim countries - Zakir Naik says:

Zakir Naik supports terrorism; his sermons of hate brainwash Muslim youth inciting them to acts of violence:

Arrest raises hopes of full justice for terror victims

NEW DELHI: Ever since a botched Delhi Police raid allowed Rahil Abdul Rehman Sheikh to escape his home on Mumbai’s Grant Road, there has been little word on the man the Maharashtra Police believes was among the key commanders of the 2006 serial train bombings in Mumbai.

Indian intelligence assets had reported seeing Sheikh, still hobbling from injuries to his leg sustained when he jumped two floors out of his apartment window, at a Lashkar safehouse in Bangladesh soon after the bombings. Later, there were other sightings at the offices of the Lashkar’s top military commander, Mohammad Azam Cheema.

Recruited after riots

Most of Mr. Sheikh’s operatives were recruited in the wake of the 2002 communal pogrom — and several of his operations targeted Gujarat.

For example, Feroze Ghaswala, a Mumbai-based automobile engineer who was recruited by Mr. Sheikh at a gathering addressed by controversial evangelist Zakir Naik at Srinagar in 2003, volunteered for military training after witnessing the communal violence first-hand. Both Mr. Ghaswala and his associate, Mohammad Ali Chippa were arrested in the course of an abortive attempt to stage a revenge bombing in Gujarat.

Like most of the core members of the 2006 serial bombings cell, Mr. Sheikh spent much of his time at Mr. Naik’s Mumbai-based Islamic Research Foundation. While there is no suggestion that either Mr. Naik or the IRF were in any way connected to the terror strikes, cell member Irfan Deshmukh worked there as a librarian, providing perfect cover for meetings. Interestingly, the IRF is the sole South Asian centre listed as a religious learning resource on the website of the Jamaat-ud-Dawa, the Lashkar’s parent religious organisation.



Some Comments:

Abdullah shukur:


At this moment, we have to be one. We should not be divided. Its a new wave of foriegn influence on muslim youths that is affecting young muslims. When Sufi Muslims requested Ban on Wahabi Muslim events like zakir naik. Indian Government ignored it. Muslims in India who are good are sufi muslims. They have promoted brotherhood. Now, these Wahabi sect promoted by people like Zakir Naik is causing these misguidance among youths. India which was before, when we together faught british and we together built the indian culture was so good. I am a Sufi Muslim and I love everyone and I am very close to God. I studied Quran and I cannot relate anywhere killing of innocent like this. Please promote and listen to Sufi Muslims, who add colour to India’s diversity. At this time, we Hindus and Muslims should be together and avoid extremism of any kind.

I Can not believe that you are from Pakistan and still understand (rather accept) the truth.. Am amazed buddy.

I don't think my origin should make a difference, but anyways, I am an Indian Hindu (but might I add, a human being first).

I have watched a couple of Zakir Naik's speeches in the past and believe that he's quite a sensible man. Unfortunately, the above linked youtube videos have been removed and I'm still searching for them, but I don't I have ever come across any statement from him that can be categorized as provocative.

Well, I am a Muslim. I feel like vomitting when I hear Zakir Khal Naik. He represents Salafi or Wahhabi version of Islam. He has no connection at all with the all loving Islam of Khawaja Moinddun Chishti Ajmeri, Data Ganj Bakhsh, Hazrat Abdul Qadir Jilani, Mevlana Rumi, and other great Sufis. He is a puritanical zealot, a supporter of extremism in India and the region.

My Dear Muslim Brothers one thing is certain that Islam means worship of Allah and Belief in messengers of Allah and that is Iman, which are fundamentals of Islam.Regarding rest of thing in believing or respecting great saints is fine but not necessary, it doesnt throw one out of islam.but the problem is that illiterate and ignorant subsequently consider these guys as gods and start worshiping them which is very bad and shrik

Murid said...

hayat, this word 'shirk' is the usual allegation used by the Wahhabis/Salafis/Takfiris against the majority of peace loving sufi-oriented Muslims. What do you know about the Takfiris and Wahhabis by the way?

zakir naik is the best

God nay usay woh salahiat dee hay k woh challenge karsakta hay apnay deen k liay aur kon hay jo aisa karsakta hay??apnay mazhab k liay?

M. Ghayoor said...

zakir naik apnay deen ka ghaddar hay. Yazid ka yar haay. Rasool (pbuh) ka dushman hay. Zakir Naik is the enemy of the Prophet (pbuh). He is the friend of the killer of the Prophet's family. He is Khal Naik not Naik.
