Dec 30, 2001.
Prof. Hafiz Muhammad Saeed, chief of the Jamaat Al Dawa , has said
that the concentration of the Indian army on the Pakistan border is
a US- India conspiracy but both Pervez Musharraf and Vajpayee did not
want war for the fear of being toppled .In a policy statement he
however declared that in case of Indian attack, every worker of his
Jamaat Al Dawa would stand shoulder to shoulder with the Pakistan
army for the national defense.
Prof. Muhammad Saeed said that India has achieved big success by
securing ban two major Jehadic organization under US pressure. New
Delhi,s intreagues were still continuing. He however said there should
not be replay of the 1971 events when the Pakistani rulers kept
waiting for the American fleet even after Indian blatant aggression in
Hafiz Muhammad Saeed said that preaching of Islam and
Jehad are two primary duties of a Muslim. Every Muslim is basically a
Preacher and a Mujahid, so also is every worker of the Jamaat al Dawa.
In the prevailing situation, Jehad has become obligatory for every
He said unfortunately, some so- called intellectuals are
creating confusing in the minds of the youth through their analysis..
He said the Muslim world is gifted with all types of
resources of men and material but unfortunately, their rulers are not
utilizing these resources merely because of their slavish mentality.
Hafiz Saeed advised the Muslim Ummah, especially the
Pakistani nation not to lose heart in the present situation and
instead stand ready for war. He said all Satanic forces failed to
stop Jehad in the past and they would also fail in such efforts in
He noted that in the present age, war is not fought only
with gun. Media and propaganda have become a more powerful weapon as
compared to gun.
He said it was time that the Muslim Ummah took to the path of Jehad
in line with the Sunnah of the Noble Prophet as the survival of the
Ummah lies only in Jehad. If the Muslim rulers and the Ummah adopt the
Jehadic path with all sincerity, harnessing the resources at their
disposal, no worldly power could defeat them. He said fortunately,
Jehad has already been revived and the message of Jehad has been
conveyed all over the world. There is no bigger threat to the forces
of Kufr than Jehad, he added.
Lashkar e Taiba not involved in attack on Indian Parliament,
Pakistan armed forces, Mujahideen and people fully prepared to face
Indian threats Hafiz Saeed.
Chief of the Jamaat Al Dawa, Hafiz Muhammad Saeed said in Lahore
on Saturday, that the Pakistan armed forces, the Jehadic organizations
and the Pakistani nation are fully prepared and strong enough to meet
an Indian attack. He also refuted the New Delhi charge that the
Lashkar e Taiba was involved in the attack on the Indian Parliament in
New Delhi early December.
In an interview with the leading Urdu daily Nawa i Waqt, he said if
India dared to impose a war on Pakistan, the Mujahideen and the
Pakistani nation would stand shoulder to shoulder with their armed
forces to frustrate enemy designs.
Hafiz Muhammad Saeed had a detailed meeting with the Chief Editor of
the national daily Nawa i Waqt, Mr Majid Nizami, and discussed with
him the latest situation prevailing on the borders.. Later in an
interview, Hafiz Muhammad Saeed forcefully denied that the Lashkar e
Taiba was responsible for the attack on the Indian Parliament early
this month. The Lashkar e Taiba never planned any such attack nor was
such an activity in line with its Jehadic stretegy. In case New Delhi
had any evidence to prove its claim, it should approach any impartial
forum and his side would face every eventuality.
Hafiz Muhammad Saeed explained that Islamic Jehad did not allow
targeting civic or democratic institutions. Jihadic activity is
carried out only against people and organizations practically
involved in oppression. He said that even as a reaction or in case of
provocation, a Jehadic organization could not conceive of targeting a
parliament or civic forum which was a gathering of people not
practically involved in oppression and tyranny.
Asked if he was prepared to go to the international court in
Switzerland or any world forum , Hafiz Saeed said he would not
nominate any forum. Instead, India should approach any such forum
with evidence against the Jehadic groups, and his side would also
appear there either in person or through its counsel for its defence.
He however asserted forcefully that the Lashkar e Taiba was not
involved in the attack on the Indian parliament and their hands were
The Chief of the Jamaat Al Dawa noted that America had blamed Osama
bin Laden for the September 11 attacks without providing any evidence
and launched attacks on Afghanistan on this plea. As the US had
targeted an accused country without providing any evidence, Indian was
following the same policy and trying to blackmail America and its
allies to gain from the prevailing situation.
However. Hafiz Muhammad Saeed exhorted the nation to stand united and
fully prepare for war. He said there was no room for despondency and
despair in the face of Indian threats. The Pakistan army was fully
prepared to face the Indian attack and the entire nation would fight
shoulder to shoulder with their armed forces.
He said the Indiana occucpation forces had been carrying on genocide
of the Kashmiris during the last decade. Eight lakh Indian troops are
engaged in the killing of the innocent Muslims in Kashmir which is a
disputed territory, The Kashmiris are fighting for freedom. The Indian
government did not trust the Kashmiris and was afraid of them, and its
threats to Pakistan were hollow.
