Qadianism, or Ahmadism as its followers call it, was a rebellion against Islam – a sort of fifth column to destroy Islam from within. It was a British imperialist need to blunt Muslim resistance to the colonial power. The founder of the new faith, Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian, was never ashamed of his services to the British Empire.
Over the years a lie has been spread in the Subcontinent the Iqbal, the great poet-philosopher of the Orient and an ardent defender of pristine Islam, was a Qadiani himself! This lie has been lapped up by the Hindutva press in India.
This work shows that on the contrary Iqbal was forcefully opposed to Qadianism and regarded it as a rebellion against Islam. Here he responds to certain observation of Pandit Nehru (which are also reproduced).
Iqbal’s observations remain as relevant today as ever: they will help you understand why Muslims react so strongly against similar recent characters like Salman Rushdie and Taslima Nasreen…
…The demands made by Muslim masses on their leaders to apply Islamic law in its entirety makes it imperative for

ہندوستان میں ریاستی اور غیر ریاستی عناصر کے ذریعہ سیاسی تشدد اور دہشت گردی کی تاریخ طویل ہے۔ 1990 کی دہائی کے وسط میں ہندتوا کے عروج کے ساتھ مسلمانوں پر ’’دہشت گردی‘‘ میں ملوّث ہونے کے الزام میں شدّت آگئی اور مرکز میں اقتدار پر بی جے پی کے قبضہ کے بعد یہ الزام سرکاری نظریہ بن گیا، یہاں تک کہ ’’سیکولر‘‘ میڈیا بھی سیکیورٹی ایجنسیوں کے اسٹونوگرافر کی طرح ان کی کہانیوں کو من وعن دہرانے لگا۔ چنانچہ مسلمانوں کے ’’دہشت گرد‘‘ قرار دئے جانے کامفروضہ اس حد تک مسلمہ نظریہ بن گیا کہ بعض مسلمان بھی اس جھوٹے پروپگنڈے کو سچ سمجھنے لگے۔ ممتاز ریٹائرڈ سینئر پولس افسر ایس ۔ام۔مشرف نے ، جن کو تیلگی اسٹامپ گھوٹالے جیسے سنگین جرم کا پردہ فاش کرنے کا امتیاز حاصل ہے، پولیس ملازمت کے اپنے طویل تجربے اور عوام کی دسترس تک پہنچنے والے مواد کو استعمال کرکے اس جھوٹے پروپگنڈے کے پردے کے پیچھے کا منظر نامہ پیش کیا ہے۔ انہوں نے کچھ انتہائی چونکا دینے والے حقائق بیان کئے ہیں اور ان کے تجزیہ نے نام نہاد ’’اسلامی دہشت گردی‘‘ کے پیچھے چھپے اصل چہرے کو بے نقاب کردیا ہے۔ یہ چہرہ ان مکروہ طاقتوںکا ہے جنہوں نے مہاراشٹر پولیس کے انسداد دہشت گردی دستے کے سربراہ ہیمنت کرکر ے کو قتل کیا۔شہید کرکرے نے جواں مردی اور حق پرستی کا مظاہرے کرتے ہوئے اصل دہشت گردوں کو بے نقاب کیا تھا اور اس کی قیمت اپنی جان کا نذرانہ پیش کرکے ادا کی۔ کتاب میں دہشت گردی کے چند بڑے واقعات کا گہرائی سے جائزہ لیا گیاہے جن کو ’’ اسلامی دہشت گردی‘‘ سے منسوب کیا گیاہے اور اس مفروضے کو بے بنیاد ثابت کیا ہے۔

Little is known about the Revolt of 1857 from the rebels perspective. But there is a large body of official records, diaries and personal narratives of the British officials and others who witnessed the ‘Mutiny’. Even though these mainly contain the heavily biased British version, they also contain significant details about the rebels and their cause. For more than a decade the author has been collecting rare documents (in Persian, Urdu, English and Hindi) of the period of 1857 rebellion from India and outside.
Manipur’s little-known Muslim communities have a long and rich history, dating from the time of Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him). In this exhaustive historical account, Farooque Ahmed traces the arrival of Islam in the region in 615 CE through the Prophet’s companion S’ad ibn abi Waqqas, an uncle of the Prophet, who also was instrumental in spreading Islam in China. Around the same time, an Arab Muslim family settled in the Manipur region and over the centuries Muslim traders, settlers and preachers helped the nascent community expand, flourish and thrive. These waves of migrations and local conversions coalesced into a unique identity of ‘Pangal Musalman’ reflecting the egalitarian and congregational ideals of Islam.
The Minorities Commission, established in 1978 under a Government resolution, was brought under parliamentary legislation fourteen years later as the

The book is a collection of a little over fifty selected poems and ghazals reflecting personal ethos of the poet and his views on various manifestations in personal and social life. The translation in English makes it possible to share all that with a cross section of people speaking languages other than Urdu and at the same time to encourage all to dig into the treasures Urdu language has been hoarding and hiding for ages. This book is a sort of exhortation to others to break the inertia and come out with whatever presentable they possess. This will be a service to the language and the colourful culture it represents.
This work contains eight lectures on various aspects of Prophet Muhammad’s life. These lectures were delivered in October and November 1925 in Madras, hence the book is popularly known in Urdu as Khutbat-e Madras (Madras Lectures). Its author was a student of Allama Shibli Nu’mani and completed most parts of the legendary and unsurpassed Urdu biography of the Prophet, Siratun Nabi, in seven volumes, that he started.
Irfan's cartoons visualize the thoughts of the Aam Aadmi and few of his recent political cartoons are highly acclaimed. Famously called the “political cartoonist Irfan” got sentenced for 4 months for making a cartoon on former Chief Justice of India in 2007. This matter is still pending in the Supreme Court of India. His political humor exceeds all limits and brings the harsh facts pictured through dumb yet vicious cartoons.

Indian democratic-secular polity is passing through the most critical phase since its birth on August 15, 1947. It has been lately taken over by the RSS/BJP leaders committed to the Hindutva politics. This politics of Hindu separatism was neither part of modern India’s anti-colonial heritage nor has been faithful to the principles enshrined in the Preamble of the Constitution of India. The protagonists of Hindutva politics decried and continue to decry democracy, secularism, egalitarianism and an all-inclusive India. This book provides an insight into the philosophical moorings of the followers of Hindutva and their action plans to convert India into a theocratic Hindu State. This Hindutva project led by RSS is in full steam with the BJP victory in the last parliamentary elections held in 2014. It is no more a hidden agenda as the incumbent Prime Minister Narendra Modi identifies himself as Hindu nationalist. This study is based solely on the internal documents of the RSS/BJP and other fraternal Hindutva organizations. It is hoped that this RSS Reader will help researchers and common readers in getting acquainted with an ideology and its perpetrators who present the most lethal challenge to democratic-secular India. Shamsul Islam taught political science at the University of Delhi (1973-2013). As an author, columnist and dramatist he has been writing against religious bigotry, dehumanization, totalitarianism, persecution of minorities, Dalits and women. He is known for his work on the rise of nationalism, specially religion based nationalism and its development in India and the world. He writes in English, Hindi and Urdu.
Quote by Khushwant Singh: [Savarkar] in his presidential speech at the Mahasabha conference in Ahmedabad in 1937, said: ‘As it is, there are two antagonistic nations living side by side in India’…The Hindu Mahasabha had no problem in joining the Muslim League Government in Sind and Bengal. He was also the supporter of the princely order and thought it would not be a bad idea if the King of Nepal became the Hindu emperor of India…If you want to recheck what I have written, take a look at Shamsul Islam’s book on Savarkar. —Khushwant Singh

“Qazi skillfully connects us to the intense, complex and remarkably strong women of Kashmir. Their fascinating and emotionally touching stories are deeply moving and need to be heard.”
ROSS KAUFFMAN, Academy Award-winning film-maker of “Born Into Brothels”
In this timely and important book, Farhana Qazi traces the lives of women in the deeply divided Kashmir Valley and shows how they have survived a 60-plus-year conflict. With unique access, Qazi is an American storyteller who travels extensively through the region to interview mothers of martyrs, militants’ wives, prisoners, protestors, and political activists. Her evocative reporting and extensive interactions brings to life these women’s stories—their individual oral histories make up a collective chronicle of suffering and struggle.
Ultimately, this is a hopeful book. With strong voices and will power, the women of Kashmir are changing their society. These reformers are the people leading the way forward.
This crucial book on Kashmir is a brilliant and thought-provoking work. Qazi’s unique perspective on Kashmir and deep passion for the women she writes about make this a definitive account of a proud people.”
