I really look forward to the US working with the Taliban to stop ISIS. Islam is clearly not the problem, terrorism is.

Debt on Me


There is a debt on me in this thread.

I had told brother In Need of Teaching that I shall once again apologize to him about intemperately harsh words that I used about him.

I had already done that publicly but he had sent me a very amicable private message and I had promised him that I'll soon(!) apologize once again.

That soon has got stretched a bit but I have not forgotten my promise.

So once again I apologize for my unkind words.

And then there is the issue of US veterans that triggered the whole show down.

I was just watching a video that was just released by Oriya Maqbool Jan Sahab where the issue of US veterans popped up so I thought I must put my feelings about the issue on record.

There are the following.

Like most of the Muslims I was aware of the 2017 report where it was divulged that the US veterans were committing suicide at the rate of about a score a day. This is of epidemic proportions. Sitting in India, away from the was theater of Afghanistan-Syria-Iraq and away from the US, I can not have a nasty or inhuman view of this very sad situation and and I do not hold such views.

What I had thought about it must be put on record otherwise the following dictum would apply : when a peacock danced in the jungle who saw it?

My feelings were that our Ulama and Elders and popular speakers like Mufti Taqi Usmani Sahab, Pir Zulfiqar Ahmed Sahab Naqshbandi Sahab, Maulana Tariq Jamil Sahab, Dr Zakir Naik Sahab, Shaikh Hamza Yusuf, Abdul Hakim Murad, Yasir Qadhi, Shabir Ally, Ustad Ali Atai should be called in, by Muslim Organizations, to address the US veterans all over the US and our scholars should tell the veterans that they, the veterans, should not despair of the Mercy of Allah SWT.

I have a million things on my mind that i have not been able to put on record because like everybody else I think faster than I can type. My above sentiments are among those things that I had not been able to put on record.

Clearly above sentiments are far, far away from what brother In Need of Teaching thought.

To be very honest I still think that this is the only way to bring the US veterans out of this mental torture that they are going through.

Clearly successive US governments have been pulling wool over the public eyes as well as over the eyes of the US defense forces about the nature and character of the conflict in Afghanistan-Iraq-Syria. The service men are the ones who are taken in most cruelly and the sufferer are the veterans, nothing to speak of the Muslim victims.

I urge the Muslim organizations in the US to work on this plan most seriously and I have faith in Allah SWT that this issue of US veterans will be solved within a month or two of our scholars speaking to the veterans.

In my mind there is no Dawah angle in this plan and it is being proposed purely as a humanitarian work.

The US people will have huge reservations about Dr Zakir Naik and we must instruct all speakers to strictly adopt the humanitarian outlook and shun every bit of Dawah zeal. With that we can most humbly request the US people to trust our intentions.

Brothers and sisters who can do the needful in this regard are requested to do so.

With this I rest my case of my feelings and attitude towards US veterans.

No reply to my pm or message on telegram.

Last viewed MS in March and last viewed Telegram in in February.

I'm concerned for him. Hope he's okay.

He did mention he had a few health issues.

No, I haven't spoken to him. I sent a message which is still unread.

I'm hoping someone who has spoken to him will be able to get through.

Yes, not logged in since May, my typo, sorry.

John Bolton in That Room


John Robert Bolton (born November 20, 1948) is an American attorney, diplomat, Republican consultant and political commentator who served as the 25th United States Ambassador to the United Nations from 2005 to 2006 and as the 27th United States National Security Advisor for seventeen months from 2018 to 2019.

His memoirs, The Room Where It Happened, has taken the world by a storm and the market is still hot.

New York Times
tried to play it down.

The Telegraph had its own take.

The Guardian had a little more perspective.

But real points will be told only by our own man : Oriya Maqbool Jan.
