In respnse to the speech delivered by Miss. Malala Yousafzai, Jihadi leader, Adnan Rasheed writes a open letter in his personal capacity. The letter is a representative of a powerful propaganda sustained by Islamic Jihadis. The letter provides a correct perspective about the sophisticated Western propaganda based on Christian values. As in any Islamic propaganda, the letter provides rebuttals to each and every point of Western propaganda, as perceived by the Muslims. Here is an assessment of propaganda of both camps.
Some parts of the letter, related to the education system of India before it was colonised - both by Muslims and Christians, are more relevant for Hindus. While, it is true that many of these things are suppressed by Colonial rulers, Islamic rules have just appropriated material and cultural wealth of Hindus.
Subheadings are provided by media.syndicate to highlight features of the Taliban propaganda. Notes are intended to provide insights into the propaganda tactics adopted by Western and Islamic expansionists.
From Adnan Rasheed of Tehreek e Taliban Pakistan to Malala Yousafzai
Not being definitive about authentic line of Islam
Taliban attacked you, was it Islamically correct or wrong, or you were deserved to be killed or not, I will not go in this argument now, let’s we leave it to Allah All mighty, He is the best judge. Here I want to advise you as I am already late, I wish I would have advised u in my prison time and this accident would never happened.Notes: - Helps in projecting islam differently to its supporters and detractors
Defending the actions of Taliban
Taliban never attacked you (Malala) because of going to school or you were education lover. Taliban or Mujahideen are not against the education of any men or women or girl. Taliban believe that you were intentionally writing against them and running a smearing campaign to malign their efforts to establish Islamic system in swat and your writings were provocative.
Notes: - Stating propaganda as the reason and rejecting the Western identified reason as education
Skillful counter arguments to transfer the blame to the adversary
You have said in your speech yesterday that pen is mightier than sword, so they attacked you for your sword not for your books or school.Notes: - Showing the fighting intentions while using pen and while pursuing western education.
Demonstrating exceptions and isolating the adversary
There were thousands of girls who were going to school and college before and after the Taliban insurgency in swat. Taliban did not attack them and why only Malala was included on their hit list?Notes: - Showing attack on girl as an exception
Defending actions of Taliban which are criticized widely
Why Taliban are blowing up schools? The answer to this questions in that not only Taliban in KPK or FATA are blowing up the schools but Pakistan Army and Frontier Constabulary is equally involved in this issue. The reason for this action is common between them that is turning of schools into hide outs and transit camps once it comes under control of either party Pakistan Army or Taliban. FC was stationed in the schools of swat in tehsil Matta and FC was using schools as their transit camps and hid outs.
Dozens of schools and colleges are being used by Pakistan Army and FC as their barracks in FATA. When something sacred is turned lethal it needs to be eliminated this is the policy of Taliban. (Invoking Islamic principle to justify the action)Blowing up schools is not the Taliban job. Some local administrators may be involved to extract more and more funds in the name of schools to fill their bank accounts.Notes: - Accepting blowing up of schools. But revealing circumstances leading to it. Blaming Western forces for initiating the use of school premises for combat purposes.
Not accepting the arguments of the adversary - providing counter arguments
It is amazing that you are Shouting for education, you and the UNO is pretending that as you were shot due to education, although this is not the reason. Your propaganda was the issue.
Distorting the authentic history to further Islamic viewpoint
I would like to share with you that Indian sub-continent was highly educated and almost every citizen was able to read or write before British invasion. Locals used to teach British officers Arabic, Hindi, Urdu and Persian. Almost every mosque was acting as school too and Muslim emperors used to spend a huge sum of money on education. Muslim India was rich in farming, silk, and jute and from textile industry to ship building. No poverty, no crises and no clashes of civilization or religion. Because the education system was based on noble thoughts and noble curriculum.Notes: - Exposing lies of Western powers hiding real situation in India when it was colonized. But, here Islamic propaganda is also at play. Taliban is telling half truth. In the other half of the truth, Muslims adopted Hindu system. Every caste had teachers and many houses in the village, temple premises were imparting education. Both women and men were literate. And among the languages, Sanskrit and regional languages were prominent and flourishing. Economic prosperity and spiritual guidance was due to Hindu society which was dominated by Muslim invaders.
Exposing the intentions of British to support the line of argument
I want to draw your attention to an extract from the minute written by Sir T.B Macaulay to British parliament dated 2nd February 1835 about what type of education system is required in Indian sub-continent to replace the Muslim education system.He stated “We must at present do our best to form a class who may be interpreters between us and the millions whom we govern, –a class of persons Indian in blood and color, but English in tastes, inopinions, in morals and in intellect”Notes: - Macaulay was more worried about Hindus and he exploited Muslims – Muslims willingly cooperated with British in India.
Relating the intentions of Colonial rulers to the present day western governments
This was and this is the plan and mission of this so called education system for which you are ready to die, for which UNO takes you to their office to produce more and more Asians in blood but English in taste, to produce more and more Africans in color but English in opinion, to produce more and more non English people but English in morale. This so called education made Obama, the mass murder, your ideal. isn’t it?Why they want to make all human beings English? because Englishmen are the staunch supporters and slaves of Jews. Do you know Sir Syed Ahmed Khan, the founder and symbol of English education in India was a freemasons.Notes: - Arguments are acceptable - but Taliban has to maintain consistency – Muslim states of today are also trying to reimpose their rule on India and some Islam on Hindus. Should Hindus accept this?
Changing the meanings of the vocabulary
You say a teacher, a pen and a book can change the world, yes I agree with, but which teacher which pen and which book? It is to be specified, Prophet Muhammad Peace be upon him said I am sent as a teacher, and the book He sent to teach is Quran. So a noble and pious teacher with prophetic curriculum can change the world not with satanic or secular curriculum.You have given the example that once a journalist asked a student that why a talib afraid of this education he replied a talib didn’t know what was in this book. The same I say to you and through you to whole world that why they afraid from the book of Allah because they don’t know what is in it.Notes: - Not convincing arguments for Hindus – If Bible is satanic, Quran is prophetic curriculum, What should other religions do? Get converted. Ridiculous arguments are provided by Westerners and Talibs.
Reiterating the objectives in perspective
Taliban want to implement what is in the book of ALLAH and UNO want to implement what they have in man-made books. We want to connect the world to their creator through the book of Allah and UNO want to enslave the world to few evil creatures.You have talk about justice and equality from the stage of and unjust institution, the place where you were standing uttering for justice and equality, all the nations are not equal there, only five wicked states have the veto power and rest of them are powerless, dozens of time when all the world untied against the Israel only one veto was enough to press the throat of justice.The place you were speaking to the world is heading towards new world order, I want to know what is wrong the old world order? They want to establish global education, global economy, global army, global trade, global government and finally global religion. I want to know is there any space for the prophetic guidance in all above global plans? Is there any space for Islamic sharia or Islamic law to which UN call inhumane and barbaric?You have talk about attack on polio team, would you explain why the then American foreign secretary of state Henry Kissinger, a Jew, said in 1973 to reduce the third world population by 80%.Why the sterilization and eugenics programs are running in different countries in one way or another under the umbrella of UNO. More than 1 million Muslim women have been sterilized in Uzbekistan forcibly without their consent.Notes: - Both Talib and UNO fail to find reason – They are more interested in imposing their systems on others and to achieve this purpose, they resort to propagandist methods.
Providing evidence from very well known writers including Western thinkers
Bertrand Russell writes in his book the impact of science on society, “diet, injections and injunctions will combine, from a very early age, to produce the sort of character and sort of beliefs that the authorities consider desirable and any serious criticism of power that be will become psychologically impossible”. This is why we have the reservation on so called polio vaccination program.
Taliban is adept in exposing the Western tactics
You say Malala day is not your day it is the day of every person who has raised voice for their rights, I ask you why such a day in not assigned to Rachel Corrie, only because the bulldozer was Israeli? Why such a day in not assigned to Affia Siddique because the buyers are Americans? Why such day is not assigned to Faizan and Faheem because the killer was Raymond Davis? Why such a day in not assigned to those 16 innocent afghan women and children who were shot dead by an American Robert Belas because he was not a talib.I ask you and be honest in reply, if you were shot but Americans in a drone attack, would world have ever heard updates on your medical status? Would you be called ‘daughter of the nation? Would the media make a fuss about you? Would General Kiyani have come to visit you and would the world media be constantly reporting on you? Would you were called to UN? Would a Malala day be announced?More than 300 innocent women and children have been killed in drones attacks but who cares because attackers are highly educated, non-violent, peaceful Americans.I wish, the compassion you learnt from Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him should be learnt by Pakistan Army so they could stop shedding of Muslim blood in FATA and Baluchistan. I wish, the compassion you learnt from Prophet Jesus should be learnt by USA and NATO so they should stop shedding blood of innocent Muslims across the world and I wish the same for followers of Buddha to stop killing of innocent unarmed Muslims in Burma, and Sri Lanka and wish the same for Indian army to follow Gandhi jee and stop genocide in Kashmir, And yes, The followers of bacha khan, the ANP has an example of non-violence in their five years regime in KPK province, for example Swat, where a single shot was not fired and we witnessed the followers of bacha khan implemented the philosophy of nonviolence in its true soul, with support of jets, tanks and gunships.Notes: - Taliban can identify the tactics adopted by West – because a Talib has same/similar intentions and adopts similar/same tactics.
Reiterating the Taliban PoV - in the present context
At the end I advise you to come back home, adopt the Islamic and pushtoon culture, join any female Islamic madrassa near your home town, study and learn the book of Allah, use your pen for Islam and plight of Muslim ummah and reveal the conspiracy of tiny elite who want to enslave the whole humanity for their evil agendas in the name of new world order.Notes: - Should we not we be able to generate our own perspective?.
