The Chief Minister of UP becomes the subject of target for the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). The leading article in the latest issue of “Voice of Khurasan,” an English-language monthly magazine published by Al-Azaim Foundation, the media arm of the Islamic State’s Khurasan Province (ISIS-K) castigates government of Yogi Adityanath for using its machinery against the minority Muslims in the state.
The Hinduphobic article title “What Is Left For The Muslims In The Constitution Of The Cow Worshippers’ State?” finds its trigger of hatred for the UP CM in his action against those who were offering namaz in the Lulu Mall.
“We Have The Tyrannical UP State’s Machineries, The Militia Of Yogi’s Administration And Policemen, Who Have Been Cracking Down On Muslims And Arresting Them In The Crime Of Offering Salah [The Five Mandatory Daily Prayers In Islam] In A Shopping Mall”
After some videos surfaced on social media on July 13 showing some Muslims offering namaz at the newly inaugurated Lulu Mall in Lucknow, the Yogi government took strict action by arrested six persons connected to the case. Later on the same government also detained members of Hindu Mahasabha who had staged protest against the incident.
Article then compares the Monk leader to the tyrannical Pharaohs who were the kings of ancient Egypt. While they built beautiful Pyramids, they were also known for their extravagance and their belief that they were the mediators between man and god. Their 3000 year rule came to an end with the Romans taking over, heralding Christianity soon after. Then finally it fell under Islamic rule between 639 and 646.
“Indeed, Allah made the glorious Koran a remembrance and admonition for all those with eyes that see and ears that hear, and mentioned various parables and examples in his book for mankind to judge between people with what Allah has shown them of the nations that went by. Indeed, the Pharaoh of Hind [i.e., Yogi Adityanath] is following the footsteps of former Fir’awn [Pharaoh], the enemy of Allah…”
“Allah says: ‘Ta Sin Meem. These are the verses from the book that make things clear. We narrate to you some of the story of Musa [Moses] and Fir’awn with truth, for people who would believe. Fir’awn behaved arrogantly in the land and divided the people into groups, seeking to weaken one section, slaying their sons and sparing their daughters, for he was indeed a tyrant.
“… [t]he Messenger of Allah said: ‘Indeed, the bonds of Islam will break one after another. So, every time one bond breaks, the people will clutch at the bond which follows it. And the first of the bonds to break will the bond of Judgment (the book of Allah) and the last of them to break will be the salah [the five mandatory daily prayers in Islam].’
So, ISIS mouthpiece firmly believes that among the many bonds that Allah will break for the ordinary man before he realises his state of delusion and commit Jihad, Salah is the final one. And by arresting Muslims while they were in the middle of their prayers Yogi ji has committed the ultimate crime. He is now at the merci of Allah and his decline shall begin.
The article then interestingly calls the government of “cow worshiper” as secular. Some of our Islamists might disagree with them here. Basically any form of government other than the one that runs on the dictates of the Koran will branded as the worse form of tyranny.
“O Muslims of Hind [India], understand and ponder over these signs: Where are your constitutional rights (although it is a manmade constitution unlike the one revealed by Allah)? When it comes to you, do the Hindu rulers follow the kufri constitution they made? Where is the divine constitution based on which your righteous predecessors ruled over the cow-worshipping Hindus and put their trust in? Where is your freedom of religion which was supposedly enshrined in the constitution?”
The article provokes Muslims in India by citing selective instances where Muslims have been on the wrong end of the law. Such as the demolition of Babri Masjid, the ‘Citizenship Amendment Act,’ and the ‘National Register of Citizens’, the banning of triple talaq and beef, the mob lynching incidents on Muslims.
“Remember the demolition of Babri Masjid [by Hindu extremists in 1992 in the northern Indian town of Ayodhya]. Remember the countless instances of mob lynching [of Muslims]. Remember the ‘Citizenship Amendment Act,’ and the ‘National Register of Citizens’ [which jihadis purport aims to render Muslims stateless]. Remember, after all, that this world is a temporary station and your never-ending hereafter is fast approaching. Seek the means toward your Lord.
Remember the beef ban. Remember the issue of triple talaq [a means of instantaneous divorce under some interpretations of Islam, by saying the word “divorce” three times in succession, that is now banned under the Indian law] and remember the indignity when your womenfolk approached taghuti courts against you. Remember the ban on niqab, the ban on adhan [call to prayer].”
Finally the mouthpiece of ISIS comes to the main point, Jihad.
“The pinnacle of Islam is jihad. It is the only way can come out of your humiliating life under Hindu rule. Fear not the strength or number of your enemies.”
