What a shame ? Disgraceful and sad !
"..disbelief , ignorance, excessive love for this world and sins of all kind lead to the state of remoteness from Allah and from His mercy and that is called a curse(La'anah).A thing accursed is a thing that it becomes either devoid of benefit , or positively harmful.To behave in a manner contrary to the injunctions of the sacred Law is to destroy whatever blessings are there and exchange them for anger from Allah and therefore remoteness from His mercy(La'nah).Evils that attract curses and drive away blessings are usury, alcohol,bribery, men who imitate women and women who imitate men, offending one's parents, illegal intercourse of all sorts, as well as all other evils mentioned in Quran and Sunnah...." Quote
Almighty Allah says in the Qur'an: And those who break the promise of Allah after making it firm and sever all (the relations and obligations) that Allah has commanded to be kept unified, and do mischief and strife in the land—upon them is the curse and for them is an evil home;(Surah ar-Ra‘d, 13 : 25)
Those who act thus will be accursed in this world and the next.

1. Samir Ahmed: Sep., 24, 2019: On 6 August, a graphic designer for the Rising Kashmir newspaper, Samir Ahmad, (in his early 20s) had remonstrated with a CRPF man near his home in the Manderbag area of Srinagar, asking him to allow an old man to pass. Later the same day, when Samir opened the door to his house, CRPF fired at him with a pellet gun, unprovoked. He got 172 pellets in his arm and face near the eyes, but his eyesight is safe. It is clear that the pellet guns are deliberately aimed at the face and eyes, and unarmed, peaceful civilians standing at their own front doors can be targets.

Joining the global protest fray: Islamists march on the Pakistani capital

A five-party Islamist coalition that demands "true Islamization" and the establishment of shariah law, led by Maulana Fazlur Rehman, the 66-year old head of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam and a former member of parliament, organized a countrywide march scheduled to converge on the capital Islamabad on October 31.
Mr., Rehman said the march of up to one million people was a declaration of “war” against Mr. Khan’s government. He demanded the government’s resignation. His protest is likely to secure a degree of support from other major opposition parties like the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N).
With government efforts to engage the opposition in talks to fend off the march on Islamabad going nowhere, both Pakistani security forces and stick-wielding Islamist volunteers clad in yellow uniform-like garb have been preparing for the march. Security forces have virtually sealed off Islamabad’s government district.
The government is also considering closing roads leading to the capital and banning media coverage.
Pakistani media reported that authorities were also contemplating digging ditches along footpaths leading to Islamabad to prevent protesters from circumventing roadblocks by foot.
The Islamists were further energized by a controversial meeting last month on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly between Mr. Khan and George Soros, the billionaire philanthropist behind the Open Society Foundation. The foundation was banned from Pakistan in late 2017 as part of a crackdown on non-governmental organizations.
Mr. Soros, a Hungarian-born Jew who survived the Holocaust, and the foundation are globally in the bull’s eye of populist, ultra-nationalist and militant religious opposition to what they term ‘globalists’ and ‘cosmopolitans.’
The attacks, like in the case of the Islamist coalition in Pakistan as well as Hungarian prime minister Victor Orban and other nationalist and far-right forces, often take on anti-Semitic connotations.
Mr. Orban, who studied on a scholarship provided by Mr. Soros’ philanthropy, has charged the billionaire with secretly plotting to flood Hungary with migrants and destroy it as a nation.
Mr. Rehman, accusing Mr. Khan of being a “Jewish agent,” was particularly irked by the fact that the prime minister was believed to have asked Mr. Soros to assist in reforming Pakistani madrassas in a bid to counter radicalization and ensure that the seminaries adopt curricula approved by the ministry of education.
Greater government control of the seminaries would substantially weaken the significant street power of Islamist parties that often fare poorly in elections.
The emerging power struggle between Mr. Khan and the Islamists is in many ways an effort by the Islamists to force the military that long supported them to choose between them and the prime minister.
Mr. Khan is believed to have had military support in the electoral campaign that brought the former cricket player to office on a promise to end corruption and improve living standards. Instead, a persistent economic crisis forced Mr. Khan to agree to a US$6 billion bailout by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) that involves stark austerity measures.
The Islamists ability to march on Islamabad has some analysts suggesting that they would not be able to do so without at least a military nod.
Whatever the case, the march could not come at a more awkward moment for Mr, Khan.
Mr. Rehman hopes to capitalize on popular discontent as Pakistan struggles to overcome the economic crisis and seems unable to garner substantial international and Muslim support in condemning India’s withdrawal of the disputed area of Kashmir’s autonomy.
Earlier this week, police in Islamabad employed water cannons to disperse teachers protesting the fact that they had not been paid for months.
Complicating affairs is the fact that solving the economic crisis, confronting India in the dispute about Kashmir and meeting FATF’s demands are all intertwined.
Militants and others have degrees of financial manoeuvrability because much of the Pakistani economy remains unrecorded. In addition, despite crackdowns, various militant groups like Jamaat-ud-Dawa and Jaish-e-Mohammed remain useful proxies in battles over Kashmir. All of which mitigates against full compliance with FATF’s demands.
That is the murky playground in which Mr. Rehman and his Islamist alliance is seeking to stir the pot.

Q. HOW MANY MUSLIMS WERE LIVING IN KASHMIR WHEN THE BIGOTED FANATIC EMPEROR AURANGZEB ASCENDED THE THRONE OF HINDUSTHAN.
Q. HOW MANY MUSLIMS WERE FOUND IN KASHMIR WHEN THE SAID EMPEROR DIED?
Q. WHY DID THE KASHMIRI HINDUS CAME CRYING TO GURU TEGH BAHADUR?
Q. WHAT DID THE GURU DO TO BE BEHEADED IN THE CENTRE OF DELHI?
CONCLUSION: JUST AS MANGOES CANNOT GROW IN THE DESERT OF ARABIA, THE RELIGION OF THE MOHAMMED OF MECCA HAS SIMILARLY LITTLE CHANCE OF SURVIVAL IN BUDDHIST, HINDU AND CHRISTIAN COUNTRIES- that are much OLDER civilizations.
PLEASE RECORD THE NUMBER OF MUSLIMS LIVING IN INDIA, CHINA, EUROPE AND THE USA TODAY AND THEN COME BACK TO RECORD THEIR NUMBERS IN THE YEAR 2120. YOU WILL FIND ALL THE MUSLIMS "EVAPORATED" OR "EXTERMINATED."
NB: A religion is relevant ONLY to the geo-political and social conditions prevailing at the POINT of its ORIGIN. Elsewhere it is IRRELEVANT or REDUNDANT, even UNDESIRABLE NUISANCE unless it is tolerant and ALL EMBRACING without dividing MANKIND into males and females, and into INFIDELS & BELIEVES.
