      400,000 take part in Jihad Gathering
      40,000 Women Turned up led by mothers of 2000 Martyrs
      Jihad Movement Demands Removal of U.S. bases & FBI, release of Dr.
      Amir

      New Trend observers were puzzled on hearing that Pakistani
      coup leader Pervez Musharraf allowed court activity to go through
      which resulted in the release of both Dr. Amir (who treated Osama
      and people injured in U.S. bombing) as well as Jihad movement leader
      Hafiz Saeed. Here is the force which Musharref took into
      consideration!
      It appears that both the Pakistani and U.S. media have censored
      a major Pakistani event which took place Novemeber 1, 2 and 3. The
      Jihad movement known as jamaat ad-da'wa (with its fighting wing in
      Kashmir known as Lashkare Taiba) was refused permission by the pro-
      U.S. regime to hold its annual gathering on the outskirts of Lahore.
      Instead of clashing with the government, the Jihad movement
      rapidly changed the venue and held its Convention 70 miles away on
      the outskirts of Pattoki. It was a minor miracle of organizational
      skill to set up a tent city for nearly half-a-million people at six
      days notice, complete with eating and sleeping facilities.
      The only difficulty the organizers faced was that MORE THAN
      40,000 WOMEN turned up, instead of the 20,000 which the organizers
      anticipated. Again the ability to cope was superb.
      There was tight security and as a result no government agent
      was able to create a disturbance.
      Along with scholarly speeches on texts of the Qur'an and the
      Hadith, the main point which was repeated throughout was that Jihad
      against oppression is as important in Islam as prayer and fasting.
      The massive gathering demanded the immediate release of Hafiz Saeed,
      the founder of Lashkare Taiba, and Dr. Amir Aziz, the selfless
      physician who treated the people wounded in U.S. bombing of
      Afghanistan.
      The guests of honor were the parents of martyrs. [Lashkare
      Taiba joined the struggle against the Indian army in Kashmir years
      back when news came out that India was using RAPE as a weapon to
      subdue the people of Kashmir.]
      During one session, a woman, from behind purdah, had her
      infant taken to the stage and announced that she was "donating" her
      child to the Jihad. Numerous other women made similar announcements.
      [The little tent city occupied by the 40,000 women of Jihad was
      aptly named after `Ayesha Siddiqa (r.a.) the daughter of Abu Bakr
      (r.a.) and the beloved of the beloved of Allah (pbuh).]
      The encampments for men were named after Abu
      Bakr, `Umar, `Usman, Ali, Talha, Zubair, Sa'ad bin Abi Waqqas, Abdur
      Rahman bin `Auf and Osama bin Zayd (may Allah be pleased with them
      all.)
      The gathering included tens of thousands of Pushtu speaking
      and Sindhi speaking supporters of jihad who had travelled all the
      way from Frontier and Sindh provinces.
      Some observers say that the gathering was nearly HALF MILLION
      strong. The statement issued by the convention made these points :

      1. Condemned Musharref's vacillation on Kashmir.
      2. The families of martyrs condemned Musharraf's betrayal of Kashmir.
      3. American FBI's intervention in Pakistan must be stopped.
      4.Countrywide network of free medical services and ambulances must
      be
      established. Jamaat ad-Da'wa has started this process in the Lahore
      area.
      5. Immediate need for relief in Sindh and Baluchistan provinces.
      6. Education must be updated. Ad-Da'wa will provide computers and
      English teaching in the medressas it has set up.
      7. STRUGGLE TO FREE PALESTINE IS EVERY MUSLIM'S DUTY. Deliverance of
      Al-Aqsa masjid is part of our faith.
      8. The suffering of the Muslims of India must be stopped. The
      silence of Muslim countries about India's atrocities is shameful.
      9. Oppose oppression in Chechnya, Iraq, Arakan, the Philippines and
      Eritrea.
      10. All American bases and intervention in Pakistan must end.
      11 The Islamic parties which have won the elections in parts of
      Pakistan must strive to implement the Sharia.
      12. Oppose the cultural smut coming in through TV, cable, dish
      antennas etc.
      13. If the government cannot protect minorities, the Muslim
      communities must organize to stop attacks on minorities.

      There was a wealth of discussion of texts from the Qur'an,
      particularly about Jihad. A superb ceremony was also held with
      reference to Imam Bukhari's great collection of Sahih Hadith and
      honors were given to young people who had shown expertise in Imam
      Bukhari's Sahih.

      Dear New Trend readers, is it not amazing that NOT A WORD about this
      historic gathering was mentioned on the Zionist-controlled U.S.
      media. The zionists have indeed made an art form out of CENSORSHIP.
      40,000 women supporting Jihad! That's the nightmare of Sharon, Bush
      and Vajpayee.
