Indian occupied Kashmir has been in a state of shock since India has removed the special status of the State. The lockdown in the State has entered its third week and is a cause of uncertainty, not just for the people of Kashmir but also for all those who feel connected to their Muslim brothers and sisters. On one hand we have innocent Muslims helplessly trapped by the Indian forces and on the other hand we have millions of Muslims who are ready to help their Kashmiri brothers and sisters, trapped by their own governments. While Pakistan has been busy giving excuses, justifications and when needed, empty threats to pacify its own people, the Government of UAE went many steps ahead and chose to give an award to Modi. The Bangladeshi Foreign Office declared its stance on the Indian step in Kashmir by stating it was an internal matter of India. We see Bangladesh working to strengthen its relationship with two countries that are ruthless to their Muslim populations, India and China. Bangladesh itself has broken all records of brutality towards Rohingya Muslims. This behaviour of Muslim rulers is a result of their adopted and embraced nationalistic ideology, which demands them to think and act only according to their current personal and national interest. India remains Dubai’s second largest trading partner with $31.6 billion worth of bilateral non-oil trade accounted for in 2018, a 17 per cent increase compared to 2017 and of course 2019 has been a year of further closeness.
All these Muslim leaderships have reverted to Capitalism and they are faithful to their new god, which is money. As the UAE is not ready to sacrifice its huge Indian market and is busy strengthening its ties with India, the neighbouring countries of Kashmir have their own interests. Hearts of the Muslims of Pakistan and Kashmir may be connected through faith but the only interest of the Pakistan Government in Kashmir is of strategic ego and ownership of land or the political benefit that it can achieve from it. The Government of Pakistan may condemn the actions of the Indian Government but will never step forward and move its forces in defence of innocent Kashmiri people because it cannot afford to upset its American masters, just like the UAE, whose actual existence is based on selling of Muslim blood and land. That is how that Arab monarchy started its business and that is what they have become an expert of and this what Allah will keep them busy with. They will end up making friends with the enemies of the Muslims, the people who have most harmed this Ummah and that is how they will be further distancing themselves from doing good.
This is the time for the people of understanding, whatever field they may be from, to break free from the shackles and move to help the oppressed of Kashmir, Yemen, Syria, Palestine and Afghanistan. If these tyrants don’t shy away in showing their favour towards the Kuffar, then why should people hesitate in standing against them and questioning their actions? This is the time for Muslim armies to go beyond talking the talk, and to walk the walk. This is the time for all the Muslim soldiers to experience the true form of Jihad and this Jihad is only possible under the true leadership of Khilafah (Caliphate) upon the method of the Prophethood, where relationships are built in obedience of Allah (swt) and territories are expanded in the name of the True Owner Al Malik “The King”.
Allah's Messenger (saw) said, «وَاعْلَمُوا أَنَّ الْجَنَّةَ تَحْتَ ظِلاَلِ السُّيُوفِ»“Know that Paradise is under the shades of swords.” (Sahih Bukhari)
