To attack and capture Makkah and Madinah
On condition that he never allows Caliphate again

இந்தியாவின் குஜராத் மாநிலம் ஒரு காலத்தில் இந்துக்களும் முஸ்லிம்களும் இணைந்து நல்லிணக்கத்தோடு வாழ்ந்த ஒரு பிரதேசம். இந்து முஸ்லிம் ஒற்றுமைக்கு உதாரணமாகத் திகழ்ந்த ஒரு இடம். குஜராத்தில் ஆரம்ப காலத்திலேயே வந்து குடியேறிய முதலாவது வர்த்தக சமூகம் முஸ்லிம்கள் தான். தமக்கென ஒரு குஜராத்தி தனித்துவத்தை ஏற்படுத்தி செழிப்போடு வாழ்ந்த சமூகம். துரதிஷ்டவசமாக அவர்களின் இந்த வெற்றி தான் அவர்களை காலத்துக்கு காலம் இந்து இனவாத சக்திகள் குறிவைக்கவும் காரணமாயிற்று.

The Irish and the Palestinian people share a common bond that stretches back in history many centuries - in the case of the Palestinians to Biblical times - and that is their long-fought struggle to acquire a national homeland against insuperable odds.
What distinguishes the two groups, however, is that the Irish succeeded in fulfilling the dream of obtaining statehood, while the Palestinians remain stuck in limbo.
The Irish achieved statehood status in 1922 following the Irish War of Independence and the signing of the Anglo-Irish Treaty (the struggle over Northern Ireland, however, continued up until the Good Friday Agreements in 1998).

“We must put an end to anything which brings about any Islamic unity between the sons of the Muslims. The situation now is that Turkey is dead and will never rise again, because we have destroyed its moral strength, the Caliphate and Islām.”
This bold statement, or rather stark warning, was allegedly made by the former British Foreign Secretary, Lord Curzon, at the House of Commons after the Lausanne Treaty of 1923, when the Ottomans were defeated in World War One. The reason why Lord Curzon’s alleged statement should be taken with so much weight is because it correlates with the following ḥadīth of Prophet Muḥammad (sall Allāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam):

There was politics even during the period when I was in college before partition. But it was not on communal lines as it is today. Then the enemy was the British and all of us were in a struggle to oust them. It was a time when Mohammad Ali Jinnah came to the Law College at Lahore and exhorted all of us to make a joint effort to drive out the British.
Subsequently, things came to such a pass that even water was divided into Hindu pitchers and Muslim pitchers. We, the students, were not contaminated at that time.

The anti- reformist sections within the Muslim community, in relation to the Muslim Marriage and Divorce Act (MMDA), allege that the “Muslim feminists are stirring issues” “asking for all sorts of things”, “making a mountain out of a molehill”, “want to change the Shariah“, and other accusations. They also allege that the Muslim feminists have made it so detrimental to the point of no return that all that is left is “damage control”.
They fail to understand that the reform conversation did not just begin with the so called “Muslim feminists”. The call for reform and these conversations began over 50 years ago, with many movements and groups advocating for reforms and also with many committees appointed by successive governments albeit yielding no consequences.

Today, there are over 500 million Muslims throughout the Indian subcontinent (India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh), making it one of the largest population centers of Muslims in the world. Since Islam first entered India, it has contributed greatly to the area and its people. Today, numerous theories about how India came to be such a largely Muslim land exist.
Politically, some (such as the Hindutva movement in India) try to make Islam seem foriegn to India, by insisting it only exists because of invasions by Arab and Persian Muslims. The truth, however, is far from that.

Canadian independent journalist Eva Bartlett is the object of a smear campaign by Canada’s mainstream media. Listen to what she has to say and then decide who is telling the truth. The mainstream media denies the existence of terrorists linked to Al Qaeda. According to mainstream sources, there were no terrorists in Aleppo. Al Qaeda and the Islamic State are supported by US-NATO, Saudi Arabia and Israel.
They are the state-sponsors of terrorism. We are dealing with a war of aggression. Eva Bartlett provides detailed evidence of war crimes.
