Visa to Heaven . . . Don't educate your daughter

Looks like "Maulana Fazlullah" a notorious cleric from Swat in NWFP Pakistan has setup his visa issuing counslate that has been making promises of heaven to the poor uneducated masses of the region. Maulana Fazlullah is another product of the Afghan Soviet War, the remnants of which to this day are haunting the lives of millions of people in Pakistan. A known terrorist who is wanted by the government on numerous charges has to date, eveaded arrest; he was the only voice of support to the Lal Masjid Clerics and has sicnce the operation gone underground.

Maulana Fazlullah has made headlines in media all over the world by his claims that the Polio Eradication Program of WHO is a "conspiracy of the Jews and Christians to stunt the population growth of Muslims" he claims that polio vaccines cause impotence and thus the villagers should not get their children immunized. His propoganda has been quite successful and thousands of people have stopped vaccinating their children, there have been several attacks on medical teams in the area that have gone in to vaccinate the villagers.

His Latest Cause:
The maulana has now taken upon himself to stop the region from educating its women, after 60 years of independence, education was just starting to spread to the region for their women, the first generation of girls had started school and this idiot announces that education for women is unislamic, he has illegal short range FM stations running in several villages, and he uses them to spread his word that he clains is the word of God. Not only does he spread his word but he uses simple pshycology to have villages compete among themselves for entry into heaven by taking more children out of school. His drive has been quite successful with the region again falling into the dark ages. He has been successfully able to extinguish to light of education from the lives of thousands of young girls full of potential.

This nation has been used and abused by everyone for their own vested interests, the people have lost their will to florish they are merely existing, Where is the voice of reason, who is there to say something about the situation and fight for a cause withour fear, Why is no one doing something to silence this voice of darkness and bring light again into the lives of these simple folk who don't know right from wrong, may God help us all.

I wonder what his investment in this could be? Does he truly believe what he is saying, thinking he has an obligation to the world to share his "knowledge". Or is he interested in building his own power and prestige so that he can have undeducated masses to follow him? He must have some charisma or money or some source of energy to get people to want to listen and follow him.

Welcome Annie, his investment is his power, he has a follower base willing to do his calling, give him money and support his causes. I'm sure he does not believe what he preaches, he just does it to have a continued un educated people following him. His source of Energy is misleading a naive people who have no knowledge of vaccines and education, who are a like the mice following pied piper dancing to his music.

And as for Maulana, well, its a pity people like him are still around, taking advantage of others' poverty and ignorance. Who needs enemies with citizens like these?

Truly unfortunate...

I do feel however that such people don't exist is such large quantities naturally. These ppl were literally bred during the Soviet-Afghan war by they-who-must-not-be-named. Training and propaganda institutions were set up in the name of 'Madrassas' all over the country.

For a decade these people had international support... they got used to the power they had on people. Now, without any support, their addiction to power still continues.

Now that the war has turned against the people who set these institutions up, I fear that the backlash is going to be as irrational as the initial setup was. With the recent events and renews spotlight on these institutions, it seems like there will be a massive crackdown that will likely not differentiate between the hundreds of actual Madrassas in the process of teaching students and the ones that are training terrorists.

As you said: may God help us all...

D reb is back! And what a fine piece of writing to return with. I am not surprised... men like him, well, the light becomes dimmer and dimmer in some parts of the world it seems...

Shaira, thank you, I'v been quite busy, inshallah will try to continue posting as much as I can. You are right the light becomes dimmer and dimmer, but by the Grace of God there are people out there who are willing to continue lighting a candle in darl places and as long as they are there we should be alright.

It is so sad that people can be swayed so. I sometimes think that maybe they think they have no choice but to go along out of fear and safety for their families. I don't know just a thought.
But to think that they might believe the kind of lies this man tell is even sadder. It is beyond my comprehension. How could anyone think that medication or education could be harmful. Obviously this is one evil man. He cares nothing about the people, just wants to further gain more power.
