LAHORE: 

Jamaatud Dawa (JD) has vowed to convert Pakistan into a Taliban state and to train young people to wage jihad against America and India, in the latest rally by the outlawed group here in the city.

JD activists as well as school children as young as 10 from various districts were brought to the Lahore Press Club in buses and vans for the ‘Talaba Jamaatud Dawa’ (Jamaatud Dawa Students) protest against the Nato attack that killed 24 Pakistani soldiers.

Students aged 10 to 15 from Jhumra Sandal Islamic School, Faisalabad, and Tameer-i-Seerat Model School Sharaqpur, Sheikhupura, said that they had thought they were going to a science exhibition and that’s what they had told their parents.

One student from Sandal Islamic School gave this correspondent a form titled ‘Field Trip Permission’ that was signed by his mother. “Dear Parent or Guardian,” it reads. “Your child is going on a field trip. Please read the information at the top of this form, then sign and return the permission slip at the bottom of this form.” It goes on to say that the students would be taken to a science exhibition at Al-Mizan School, Faisalabad, and they would be back by 3pm. The protest did not end till 4:20 pm, when the participants got back in the vans and buses and drove to Nasser Bagh.

Speeches

Addressing the rally at the Press Club, JD leader Maulana Ameer Hamza said the army chief should know that he had the full support of the JD, which would turn its followers into skilled fighters. “JD will make all of its fighters into Taliban. There will be Taliban in Punjab University, in Government College, in Agriculture University Faisalabad,” he said.

Hamza demanded that the government must kick the Americans out of not just Shamsi airbase, but Shahbaz airbase as well, otherwise the JD would do so itself.

JD leader Hafiz Abdul Rehman Makki said Allah wanted them to get revenge from Christians and Americans. “We will kill Americans,” he said, adding that JD had trained hundreds of thousands of people for jihad.

He said the attack on the Pakistani check posts was intentional and an act of war against Pakistan.

He said it was the 32nd attack by US forces on Pakistan. “If the government does not get revenge from the US, we will,” he said.

He said that the United Arab Emirates should not have asked Pakistan to reconsider its decision to kick the Americans out of Shamsi.

Makki said it is 32nd attack of US forces on Pakistan and Pakistan should come out of war against terrorism. He accused the media of spreading propaganda against Islam and jihad and in favour of the United States.

JD leader Hafiz Saifullah Mansoor said they would kill 100 Americans for every Muslim killed. “Thousands of fighters are ready and waiting for a call from our leader Hafiz Saeed,” he said.

Abdullah Gul, son of former ISI chief Gen (retired) Hameed Gul, said it was time to “complete the revolution”. He said the people of Pakistan aspired to wage jihad and it was time to take up the sword,” he said. Jamaat-i-Islami Lahore Ameer Ameerul Azeem said Nato forces had reminded them all of the many wounds the country has suffered at the hands of America. He said Nato leaders were lying when they said the attacks were unintentional.

    “Jamaatud Dawa (JD) has vowed to convert Pakistan into a Taliban state and to train young people to wage jihad against America and India”

    According o Pakistani leaders however Jamaat Ud Dawa is a charitable organization that has NOTHING to do with jehad. This is why apparently no evidence exists of their training camps or their hate speeches to prosecute Hafiz Saeed. When these people can openly run jehadi training camps, and give public hate speeches against India, how can Pakistan claim that these are non-state actors? Then people in Pakistan wonder why their contry has such poor credibility and bad reputation.

    Dear Modern Muslims,

    Please refrain from talking about Jihad and other things that you do not know anything about. Those people who think that we are living in Lala Land and the USA is just trying to curb “terrorists” and promote “democracy”, should go and do a bit of research behind their real motives. STOP talking about things that you don’t know anything about. If you think that being “moderate, Peace Loving” muslims is the requirement of the day and you think that if we’d be peaceful and do not respond to the US/Israel aggression, then wait and watch. People like you would be eating your words soon.

    USA/Israel is about to launch their war on Iran and then Pakistan. If you can’t do anything about it or rather don’t want to, then at least do not criticize those people who are.

Pakistanis, if you are happy that JuD/Lashkar conducted a “successful” mission in Mumbai, just think of the repercussions of it. You are responsible for the choices you make. You supported anti-Soviet jihadis, just because the Soviets were friends with India and enemy of your friend of that time, the US. You supported Taliban in the 90s. Both these instances backfired and are biting you since 9/11. Give it another 15 years, JuD will come back to bite. Don’t become Dr. Frankenstein.

    That quote is directly taken from Ameer Hamza himself. They SAID and MEANT EXACTLY that.

    While they claim to back the army, it also clearly has contradictory implications for the army’s image considering how they believe the army accepts Taliban type support, when our army is supposedly to be at war with them…

    Addressing the rally at the Press Club, JD leader Maulana Ameer Hamza said the army chief should know that he had the full support of the JD, which would turn its followers into skilled fighters. “JD will make all of its fighters into Taliban. There will be Taliban in Punjab University, in Government College, in Agriculture University Faisalabad,” he said.

    @QAisar gondal:
    Per your posting “.just look at the picture ,u can see only one child all others are elders”. Please note that this “one” picture does not show every single person at this protest! If available, a video of same protest might give you more information as to the number of children there before you disagree with the writers!

    I had commented on ET about an year back that LeT/JuD, JeM, LeJ etc being patronised were not the friends of the state but their sole objective was to rule the country one day by enforcing Shariat laws. In the same comments I had predicted that TTP shall be joined by these outfits with this common agenda in their mind and would jointly wage a war against the state in the near future which appears to be on the cards now. Many leading defence analysts and leaders the world over had conveyed similar views but the same were totally ignored by the leading establishments in Pakistan who thought it otherwise that these oufits would remain under their control for ever and serve as tools for political purposes against its neighbours. The cat is now out of the bag and I sincerely hope that Pakistan would now review its decades old policy on these terrorists groups, treat this threat most seriously and take appropriate action against these outfis, before it is too late.

    I think if US invades pakistan, they will welcome US with garlands. No need for long queues for American VISA.

    But i wonder whether US would want that.

    Humans suffer from collective Insanity and Mania! They have created walls of funny and complicated religious beliefs, divided themselves in nationalities, run day and night after money, raised huge killer armies and with bliss and devotion kill each other!

    A predator kills only when hungry, the man on the other hand needs pseudo justifications for his brutal and cruel killings and murders. So is the blood-soaked history of mankind and so is the world of today…….what shall be the future? According to Albert Einstein, the 4Th world war shall be fought with stones and sticks!

    Assalam-o-Allaikum Warahmatullah.Here JD is making the biggest committed mistake by using absolutely wrongful word “Taliban state”.The real,true and exact words JD has to use that Pakistan has be made a practical and real welfare Islamic state according to the true and exact teachings of Quran and Sunnah not Taliban state.

    This is no news. Anyone who is following the growth of Jihad industry in Pakistan over the last 30 years can vouch for the truth of this statement. In a way Pakistan HAS become such a state already. Just look at what is happening in this country. So lets wait for their coming . Some food for thought for Imran Khan.

    Obviously this is just rhetoric.. they can do no such thing.. its just them venting because they can’t do much about the soldiers killed by NATO/US.. except to express their hate for the US (They are hated world-over, not just in Pakistan!) Read stuff apart from ET and you’ll soon realize!… So this demonstration is no biggie.. as we see red necks in the US slam slogans against Blacks and well anyone who’s not white like them! The majority of Pakistani’s don’t want to kill any American, let alone kill!…they just want US out of their country and for them to stop meddling with our governments! Truth hurts the Americans.. if you want to really live, then do so elsewhere (preferably don’t sleep with our neighbors as this scares us a little too!)..SO this is the basic jist of such demonstrations!Recommend

    I am really worried about that our innocent children had been used in the hands of terrorists anti human forces. Communist Party of Pakistan extremely condemned the fraudulent act of the Lashkar e tayyaba.
