By Muhammad Zafrulla Khan
This concisely written text presents the teachings of Islam and their distinct superiority over various Articles that make up the Declaration of Human Rights adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations and universally acclaimed as the greater charter of freedom. The author explains how 1400 years ago, Islam emancipated the poor and oppressed and gave the world the basic prescription for the respect and value of all human beings irrespective of class, colour or creed. Those instructions contained in the Holy Qur'an remain as relevant today as they were at the time that it was revealed. However, with the passage of time, some parts of Muslim society neglected Qur'anic teachings with an inevitable decline in moral standards. The author however concludes on an optimistic note that the revival of Islam is happening and with it a close adherence to the values laid out in the Holy Qur'an

Ahmadis Living Under Siege
Posted by Abu Nauman Atif -
Thursday November 10 2011
There is a community in Malaysia that is under siege. In fact they are under siege in all countries where they exist and where there is a high number of Muslims; the countries in the Middle East and North Africa, Pakistan, Indonesia and here in Malaysia.

In Pakistan and recently in Indonesia, they suffer physical attacks.

Recently in Indonesia followers of Ahmadiyah have been killed. The Indonesian authorities were reluctant to charge their murderers.

That community is the Ahmadiyah. In Malaysia they are the Jemaat Ahmadiyah Muslim Malaysia.

In 1975 the Selangor state religious department issued a Fatwa (a religious edict) declaring that the Ahmadiyah movement is non-Muslim.

They have been forbidden to conduct Friday prayers at their centre in Kampung Nakhoda, Batu Caves and the department is working with the city council and land office to confiscate their property. The reason? Wrongful use.

There is also initiatives to remove ‘Islam’ under the category of religion in the identity cards of the followers and replaced with ‘Qadiani’.

So what is it about the Ahmadiyah that’s drawn so much anger from Muslims and subjected them to persecution in a land that allows freedom of religion in its Constitution and in a religion with a God that demands ‘that there be no compulsion’?
