My sources tell me that Mufti Amin Pandor spoke to the BBC for 2 hours, his total airtime in both episodes is less than 5 minutes. Based on these facts we have no idea what Maulana Yusuf Motala (HA) wrote to the BBC and what they actually decided to share on air.
In fact I am not even sure if he indeed responded or was it an Administrator. Not defending him in anyway, just sharing facts.
As far as Maulana Masood Azhar is concerned he is an ISI stooge and I have been saying it for 5 years so I (personally) don't support or back him at all...not sure about Deobandees.
The first problem is reliance on Ulama on matters which are political and politically influenced. Ulama are Academics who neither have the knowledge nor the experience to deal with or decipher changing political circumstances and connections.
Pakistan Army, ISI and IB (Intelligence Bureau) has to deal with India which is far bigger, more resourced and better able to deal with Kashmir on military as well as diplomatic arena. The best hope they has is to tie down India in Kashmir and waste Indian resources in a war of attrition.
Pakistan doesn’t have the kind of resources to continue this war of attrition based on financial numbers or political will.
Pakistan Army, ISI and IB (Intelligence Bureau) have NO CHOICE but to tap into religious sentiment to get the necessary resources in Kashmir to tie India down, the best people with ample religious fervour are Deobandees & Ahl-e-Hadeeth because they both obey their elders to the tee.
Maulana Masood Azhar was a legitimate Deoandi figure and he had Khilafah from Mufti Yusuf Luhdyanwi (RA) in Tassawuff so when he came to the UK (backed by MI6), Maulana Yusuf Motala (DB) and his likes simply welcomes him based on his Deoandi & Tassawuff connections.
British Deobandee Ulama were under immense pressure in 1993 to do something about Babri Masjid and Bosnia. MI6 wanted its native British citizens to say and do something about Bosnia.
By inviting and welcoming Maulana Masood Azhar (Deobandi Ulama) GOT A CHANCE to throw a bone at thousands of young Deobandees (that’s me and you) that they back Jihad i.e. Hazrats back Jihad.
MI6 & CIA got their wish for enthusiasm in Britain over what was happening in then (Yugoslavia).
Don’t forget that Maulana Yusuf Motala (DB) and many Deobandees also (some openly and some tacitly) backed the 1994 (HT) Khilafah conference…pretty sure some Journalist will pick this up in the future.
Now (2016) our Brothers think that Hazrats are changing their position on Jihad, they were NEVER in it anyways…They simply welcomes people based on political scenarios and circumstances
Do you see the picture, bro? Yes you have been taken for a ride for the last 20+ years! And your and my children will continue to be taken for a ride by Hazrats because they will back A or B or C without any thought or vision behind why they back them and YES THEY WILL retract support from A or B or C when political situation becomes difficult
This cannot be undone and I am sure it will be greatly appreciated.
