or,Imperial Islamist ideology alive & well in Indian subcontinent
Quite recently,on June 27,2012, Imran Khan here vowed to make Pakistan an Islamic welfare state stating “Pakistan’s creation would be worthless if it fails to become an Islamic welfare state” and “The failure of Pakistan becoming an Islamic welfare state will be a deception for all Muslims residing in India, because the country was formed on the very basis of becoming an Islamic welfare state”.
In early June of 2012,Maulana Jalaluddin Umri of Jamat-e-Islami-e-Hind of India visited Jamat-e-Islam of Pakistan at the Invitation of S Munawar Hassan for extensive conferencing and strategizing.S Munawar Hassan is also active on twitter where he had posted photographs of the two conferencing at the Jamat headquarters at Mansura in Lahore,Pakistan.
S Munawar Hassan addressed (video) the Jamat e Islami convention in Lahore, followed by his guest Maulana Jalaluddin Umri of India’s Jamat-e-Islam-e-Hind (video),both being obviously quite committed gentlemen to their faith,with Syed Jalaluddin Umri going to pains to state how well they have been able to preserve & struggle for Urdu,Indian languages not being quite the language of Indian Muslims’.
How are these events related?
Jamat-e-Islam is closely associated with PTI & Imran Khan.Jamat-e-Islam-e-Hind is closely associated with Jamat-e-Islami of Pakistan. On his recent visit, Syed Jalaluddin Umri voiced his disappointment at developments in Pakistan and how questions arose in the mind of Indian Muslims,who have supported Pakistan throughout,despite 26/11,various terror attacks & strikes,and their fear that expectations of Pakistan deviating from its commitment to forming an Islamic State,would not be fulfilled.
Jamat-e-Islam Pakistan (JeI) is also strongly associated with the Difa-e-Pak coalition of various islamist and terrorist groups,including PTI,LeJ,LeT,JuD,HUM,etc.These are resolutely opposed to India and committed to implementation of an Islamist state and agenda.HUM also sheltered Osama Bin Laden during his years on the run and acted as a conduit between him and Pakistani Army & ISI.
On the basis of this concern,and that of conferencing with his partner S Munawar Hassan and company,Imran Khan stated his objective of Pakistan becoming an Islamic welfare state as a primary goal,since it was necessary for Pakistan to successfully implement the objective resolutions relating to its formation 60 odd years ago to prove to Indian Muslims that the dream of an Islamic State across India and Pakistan remained very much alive.
