MUZAFFARABAD / LAHORE: In a fiery Friday sermon, Jamaatud Dawa (JuD) chief Hafiz Muhammad Saeed called on the people to wage jihad against America in order to save Pakistan and Islam. “Come to us. We will teach you the meaning of jihad… The time to fight has come.”

The sermon was held at the JuD head office Jamia Markaz al-Qadsia in Lahore, where Saeed had his own security. Some of the security personnel were also seen carrying weapons with silencers. A box was placed at the exit and men asked for people exiting the mosque to give funds for jihad.

Saeed, who recently became the centre of attention after the US announced a $10 million bounty on him for his affiliation with the banned Laskar-e-Taiba (LeT), said that the JuD is not afraid of anyone and will continue with its jihad. “They [US] are even scared of my name.”

“This is the same jihad which caused the USSR to break and now America is failing because of it. Analysts and journalists don’t realise why America is failing, the only reason is jihad.” he remarked. “There are many parties in Pakistan, but America has only sent a message to Jamaatud Dawa, because we do jihad.”

Commenting on the Raymond Davis saga, Saeed said that everyone knows what he was doing in the country and what the American spy agency Central Investigative Agency (CIA) is trying to accomplish in Pakistan. “America should leave Pakistan and Afghanistan peacefully. Then, we will not come to you with guns but will instead invite you to Islam.”

Saeed added that the reason why the media is against jihad is because it is influenced by the west, and the western education makes them degrade jihad.

After the sermon, a rally was taken to the Lahore press club which was joined by union traders, some Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz leaders, other Difa-e-Pakistan Council (DPC) leaders and was led by Convener of Hurmat-e-Rasool Committee Ameer Hamza. Saeed himself did not participate in the rally.

Difa-e-Pakistan activists protest US bounty on Hafiz Saeed

Hundreds of Difa-e-Pakistan Council (DPC) activists took to the streets Friday, calling for “holy war” and torching a US flag to condemn a $10 million US bounty on Jamaatud Dawa’s (JuD) founder Hafiz Muhammad Saeed.

DPC, an alliance of religious groups, has called for rallies to denounce the move against Saeed, whose Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) group was blamed for the 2008 Mumbai attacks.

In Muzaffarabad, around 500 activists shouted “Al Jihad, al Jihad (holy war)” as they marched on the city and set fire to a US flag in a main square.

DPC activists also staged demonstrations outside Lahore Press Club and Faisalabad.

Speakers asked President Asif Ali Zardari to cancel a planned visit to India on Sunday and demanded an American apology for the bounty.

“Such steps are forcing Muslims towards guns,” said Abdul Aziz Alvi, the local head of JuD, which is seen as a front for LeT, is headed by Saeed and blacklisted by the United Nations and United States.

“We condemn American announcement against Hafiz Saeed,” cried a banner at the rally, attended by members of other banned and religious groups.

The reward for Saeed was announced by US Under Secretary of State Wendy Sherman in India on Monday.

Saeed, who lives openly in Pakistan, has mocked the charges, calling a press conference to say he is ready to face “any American court” to answer charges.

    We love you DPC! Anyone who opposes your agenda should be put on a ship to India or wherever else. Anyone who is a traitor to Islam and Pakistan should have their citizenship revoked and left in the desert to fend for themselves. Anyone who thinks Pakistan is a secular nation should be tried for high treason and then strapped to the Nato tankers heading to Afanistan to catch a ride from their bases to wherever they want to go.

    God bless Pakistan.

    Let us do Jihad with oneself first : Jihad bil nafs — the spiritual exertion to curb one’s lower desires and evil inclinations and to try to increase in the doing of good in order to attain nearness to Allah. I believe this form of jihad against one’s own self is perhaps the most difficult of all. It would have been easy enough if jihad had only meant the defence of Islam by fighting against an enemy bent upon the extermination of the Muslims when the occasion so demanded; but to be constantly engaged in fighting against one’s inner demons, to guard against all sorts of temptations and greed and never to allow oneself to weaken for a moment lest one be overcome is by far more arduous a struggle. Yet when a believer sincerely tries to purify his soul and asks help from his Creator, he finds Him nigh and God guides him in his efforts.

Barbaric hate speeches will get you no where the day people like you will understand this is the day our country will finally start to prosper. Even liberals dont agree with the power America has over us but we dont go around calling for blood .

    This is the same jihad which caused the USSR to break and now America is failing because of it. Analysts and journalists don’t realise why America is failing, the only reason is jihad.

    This same Jihad was funded by the US. The US used likes of you to dismantle USSR. Who has prospered the most after dismantling of Soviet Union? The US. Now they are dictating terms over us because of blind support we gave them.

This was further confirmed by the trial of Hadley in the US. If Hafez Saeed is the leader of the LeT (or JUD as you would like to call it now) the head of an orgainization automatically stands responsible for the crimes against humanity of the followers in his organization. So by default he should own up to the crimes.Recommend

When a country can not assert its authority over its lawless citizens, where individuals are free to declare war ( no matter it is holy or unholy) ,where various organs of state are in war, where state can not protect its citizens from being hit by foreign bombardments and where there is nothing called law and order as in Karachi…Its all hopeless state of affairs. It is already a dysfunctional state. But the still darker side of the story is that very few sane voices available are recklessly suppressed or they are wiped out through gunshots. It is now up to the Almighty because no human power can save Pakistan! Pakistanis must do Jihad on themselves to get rid of these menaces.

Instead of being productive for the country, they end up making purposeless statements, inciting people to violance leading to loss of innocent lives and destruction of valuable assets of a poor country. These people should be rounded up and sent to a jail where they are taught the peaceful religion of Islam by a certified Islamic scholar and than given basic education so that they come out of their pathetic ideology and understand the values of hard work, positive contribution to society through use of knowledge and skills. This might help win respect for themselves and the nation by being exemplary citizens.

    Having said that what the Americans are trying to do in Hafiz Saeed’s case is nothing less than bizzare. How can one offer money for evidence – are we trying to buy evidence and if this is the case would it be admissable in any court?

    Pablo Escobar who was a cocaine drug lord in Columbia also developed a large part of the country using the drug money he earned as well as opposed US foriegn policy in South America. Does it make him into some charitable person. At the end of the day he was a drug lord who killed innocent people. JUD might do relief work but that doesnt change the fact that it is a front for LeT and has sent its so called freedom fighters into India and Afghanistan and killed innocent civilians.

    Educated people need to wake up and stop defending him otherwise this is the beginning of the end for Pakistan as we know it. Just because he opposes US foriegn policy doesnt give him the free reign to be a terrorist. I oppose US foriegn policy aswell but I will never justify the killing of innocent civilians even if they are from a so called enemy land.

    @Mawali: “The question is whether his interpretation of jihad against America is meant by a struggle against and a boycott or the more sinister kind.

    I would advice the Pakistan foreign office to ask for a clarification”

    It is pretty clear what type of jihad he meant. Let us review his own words ““This is the same jihad which caused the USSR to break and now America is failing because of it. Analysts and journalists don’t realise why America is failing, the only reason is jihad.”

    What do you think he meant. Did Pakistanis boycott Soviet goods in the 80s or actually sent armed non-state actors to fight in Afghanistan?

    So, what Hafiz Saeed essentially saying is, he is asking everyone to wage a inner spiritual struggle against America. Remember he is a philanthropist and heads a charity organization. “

    Seriously? He has explained very clearly what his idea of jihad is, so we do not need to guess what he meant. This is what he said ““This is the same jihad which caused the USSR to break and now America is failing because of it”

    You may be correct but the more crazy variety seem to be holding the more reasonable people hostage, witness the rose petals on Qadri, the fact that the judge convicting Qadri had to flee Pakistan, Hazara Shias getting target kiled, forced cnversion and marriage of Hindu girls. Every society has some fringe elements (so does india from where I hail). But it is the response to such behaviors from civil sociaty that tells us how moderate/liberal that society is. No doubt there are some people (Najam Sethi, Nadeem Paracha etc.) who speak out against such acts but the number is really small.

    You guys have been sending us the dossiers consist of 300-400 pages based on fake allegations. nothing could be proved against Hafiz Saeed so far. Our Supreme court has already cleared him from the charges you put upon him. Now what the problem with you guys?**

    Your supreme court has not convicted any TTP terrorists either. This is what your own army and ISI are complaining about. According to them laws of evidence are outdated, witnesses get intimidated or killed, judges get threats etc. hence not a single terrorist has been convicted even in cases like GHQ attack. SO it is not surprising that in such a country India’s dossiers did not result in convicting Hafiz Saeed. The problem is not with data provided by India. Problem is with your law and order system’s inability to convict terrorists.

    Few excerpts from Hafiz Saeed’s fiery Friday Sermons are:

    (1) “Come to us. We will teach you the meaning of jihad… The time to fight has come.”

    (2) “There are many parties in Pakistan, but America has only sent a message to Jamaatud Dawa, because we do jihad.”

    @liberalpak: You ask:
    “What about of millions of people in Pakistan who reject all religious parties in Elections.”

    4-5 years ago, I also used to believe that. Religious parties may not win elections substantially. But the problem is that mainstream political political parties have now started to believe that joining hands with religious parties is a sure way to win elections. See prominent presence of PML-N’s in this latest protests and sermons Hafiz Saeed’s. See also the presence of PTI in DCP rallies. The boys in the Aalu Anday song had a placard: PTI = Good Looking Jamat e Islami.

    Added to this is that the Judiciary has also become religiously radicalized. Showering of rose petals on Quadri, Sau-moto action on lady found with alcohol, etc. Even the Parliament has become religiously radicalized. Funeral prayer for the slain Governor was rejected but OBL declared martyr and honored with funeral prayer.

    Parents who teach excessive religion to their children should rethink how radicalized their children would end up in the future. I recall a line from the Pakistani movie Kudha Ke Liya.
    The grandmother comments when the recently radicalized son in a progressively minded Pakistani family insists that his mother should start wearing Burka, the question in her days was when Munni (young girl) shall start to wear Burkha (veil) but now the question is when Ammi (mother) shall start wearing Burkha. Everyone in Pakistan realize that times have changed. Some accept, some don’t.

    Besides the public display of conservative rightwing extremists, here is another micro example of the intolerance and terrorism blowback we suffer since US/Zia’s USSR war.

Hafiz Saheb is the truest Muslim and Pakistani – unafraid of unjust Pharaohs, kindest, gentlest soul to his friends. He is a true blessing to mankind and to Pakistan. No one has done more charity than he has done. He had started LET driven by a desire to promote animal rights and help destitute children find the right education and employment. From those humble beginnings, today he has become the pride and joy of all Pakistanis, a role model to Pakistani youth.

    Americans and Indians are merely frustrated that someone in Pakistan has the courage to stand up for truth and justice. Other Pakistanis may not be able to rise to that level of achievement, but Americans and Indians should not think that Hafiz Saheb is a fringe player who can be ignored.

    @Hammad Mian:

    He called for Jihad, not Terrorism.

    What is the difference? Attack on a country that is not officially at war with us is terrorism.

    @nasr, @time to stop being so ignorant, @salim ansari, @shady tree, @rehmat, @gp65, @Raj_USA, @Raja Irman, @bigsaf, @Nasir, @Sindhvoice, @atif, @niaz, @munda baluch:

    I agree with all of you. I am a patriotic Pakistani and I am grieved to see Hafiz Saeed and his ilk playing with the lives of other people’s children. They never put themselves in the firing line, while their followers and victims die by the thousands.

    We should wage Jihad against poverty, ignorance, disease, illiteracy and contaminated water. Our religius tradition says “the ink of the scholar is holier than the blood of the martyr.” But alas, we have become monsters and are distorting and putting to shame our great, good and humane religion.

    We need good relations with our neighbours and we should not interfere in their internal affairs. Otherwise we will continue to be trapped in a vicious circle of poverty and hatred.

    It is time we should stand and say loudly as you have all done, that Hafiz Saeed is talking rubbish.

    @Arif Mirza: I am not fan for Hafiz
    Saeed but we can’t deny their Welfare
    work in Pakistan and Kashmir.

    What is the evidence that these are not made up or exaggerated figures?

    Where did they get the money from? If it was public money then who authorised it and why was it not given to official public services such as Rescue 1122 or credible charities like Edhi Foundation?

    True, so in India, the Hindu terrorists like Nirender Moodi and Bal Thackray are freely roaming after paining their hands red with the blood of hundreds of Muslims.

    Infact, the trending of Moodi in Times 100 shows that how much Indians love terrorists and extremists to see on the cover of Times Magazine.

    I am sure with our bahadur 7 million very expensive army someone won’t be able to attack his wife and home. Also we have free judiciary as well for any internal issues.

    Why do you ask? Do you think Army and Judiciary are useless and Hafiz Saeed is a more powerful super-human alternative?

    Pakistan is blessed with all the natural resources and talent one can dream of, instead of thinking on the lines of whom you can harm you should invest your energies towards becoming a developed Nation by 2020, you have such a rich sporting history, invest into that, show the world what you are capable of, don’t accept underachievement as India has been doing for so many years happy with underachieving.

    Japan is a good example of what a willful nation can do, both India and Pakistan will do well to learn from it.

    Being a prisoner of the past does not help, its what you do with what you have (and Pakistan is blessed in that respect) that determines the future of anation, its about time Pakistan made the most of the IT revolution, pull up its socks and chart a path of a prosperous future. All the Best!

    This person and alike are major cause of present day decline of Pakistan. Today he is calling Jihad against America while American are one who created his party. He was brought from Saudi with killing ideology and petro dollars. He has blood on his hands of Shia, Sunni, ahmadis and minorities. Pakistan need to be cleared from such elements. Its best to hand over all of this group to Americans and Saudies.

    Thanks to USA and Indian trolling on global forums, Hafiz Saeed got the momentum which he might needed. Just a few weeks ago every common Pakistani did not know him and now every other Pakistani Muslim supporting him one way or other.
