Open Letter: Supporting Aafia Siddiqui

Open Letter: Supporting Aafia Siddiqui
by Sheikh Haitham Al-Haddad
Friday, 19 March 2010

www.justiceforaafia.org

It is well known that the War on Terror waged by the United States and its allies led to aggression and injustice against countries, organizations, groups and individuals. Perhaps the worst example of this brutality against individuals was that meted out to our Muslim sister in Islam, Aafia Siddiqui and her three small children.

Aafia is a hafidhah of the Qur’an, a devoted mother and practising Muslim, who dedicated her life to spreading the religion of God and assisting fellow Muslims. It is believed that she was abducted at the behest of American intelligence from Pakistan, her home country along with her children in 2003, the youngest of whom was just six months old at that time. Aafia Siddiqui and her lawyers maintain that she was held in secret US detention and tortured and abused in this time, along with her children - a claim that is corroborated by former prisoners at Bagram. After five years of denying knowledge of her whereabouts, the US claims that she allegedly emerged in Afghanistan. She was shot by US soldiers and then tried and convicted despite the absence of any physical evidence against her and the conflicting testimonies presented during the trial. She now faces life in prison. Only one of her children has been released, while the whereabouts of the two youngest remain unknown. From the time she was transferred to the US to date she has been subject to humiliating and degrading strip and cavity searches in prison and is now being denied jail visits and communication with the outside world, including her immediate family.

Allah has enjoined upon the believers, in innumerable commandments, to support the believers who are being oppressed, irrespective of where they may be. Allah says in the Qur’an,

“The believers, men and women, are auliya (helpers, supporters, friends, protectors) of one another; they enjoin good and forbid from evil; they establish prayers, and give the zakat, and obey Allah and His Messenger. Allah will have His Mercy on them. Surely Allah is All-Mighty, All-Wise.”[1]

The Prophet (peace be upon him) said,

“A Muslim is a brother of another Muslim, so he should not oppress him, nor should he hand him over to an oppressor. Whoever fulfilled the needs of his brother, Allah will fulfil his needs; whoever brought his (Muslim) brother out of a discomfort, Allah will bring him out of the discomforts of the Day of Resurrection.”[2]

He (peace be upon him) also said,

"Whoever is present while a Muslim is humiliated before him, and is able to assist him [and yet does not], Allah will humiliate him before all of creation on the Day of Judgment." And in another narration, “No man forsakes a Muslim when his rights are being violated or his honour is being belittled except that Allah will forsake him at a place in which he would love to have His help. And no man helps a Muslim at a time when his honour is being belittled or his rights violated except that Allah will help him at a place in which he loves to have His help.”
When we merely hear the plight of our sister, we should feel restless and tormented as the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “The similitude of believers in regard to mutual love and affection is that of one body; when any limb of it aches, the whole body aches, because of sleeplessness and fever.”

In spite of this, the Muslim ummah, whose followers surpass that of any other world religion, have shamefully failed in our duty to defend this Muslim woman.


Obligation to aid in the emancipation of Muslim captives
Allah has admonished and reproached the believers for allowing the weak to remain under the clutches of the enemy and their torture. Allah says,
“And what is wrong with you that you fight not in the Cause of Allah, and for those weak, ill-treated and oppressed among men, women, and children, whose cry is: "Our Lord! Rescue us from this town whose people are oppressors; and raise for us from You one who will protect, and raise for us from You one who will help."”[3]
Explaining this verse, Imam Al-Qurtubi said, “Freeing the prisoners is obligatory on the Muslim, whether by war or wealth.” Imam Malik said, “It is obligatory on (Muslim) people to ransom the prisoners with all their wealth.” There is no difference of opinion among the scholars over this, since the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “Free the prisoners.”[4] Our scholars say that ransoming prisoners is obligatory, even if not a single penny is left. Ibn Khuwaizimandad said, “This verse contains the obligations to free prisoners. There are reports from the Prophet (peace be upon him) to this effect: he freed prisoners and ordered them to be freed. This was practiced by Muslims throughout the ages and the scholars are unanimous about it. It is obligatory to free (Muslim) prisoners from the state’s treasury, and if the amount does not suffice, then it is obligatory upon all the Muslims to contribute. If one Muslim frees him, the others are absolved of this duty.”

An incident that shows the great concern for freeing Muslim captives is when the Caliph ‘Umar bin ‘Abdul Aziz (may Allah be pleased with him) sent ‘Abdul Rahman bin ‘Amrah to free some Muslim captives. He said, “Give them whatever they ask for every Muslim! By Allah, a Muslim is dearer to me than all the polytheists in my state! Indeed, you win any Muslim you pay the ransom for. Indeed you are buying Islam (by ensuring their release from prison and torture).”[5]

Ibn Taymiyyah said, “Freeing Muslim prisoners is one of the greatest obligations. Spending money from endowments (waqf) and other sources is one of the best deeds.”

Ibn Qudamah, may Allah have Mercy on him, said: “It is permissible for a Muslim to use his zakat to buy back a Muslim prisoner from the captivity of polytheists. This is because the emancipation of a Muslim captive is similar to emancipating someone from slavery, as well as it bringing glory to Islam. Spending zakah in this cause is like spending it to soften people’s hearts towards Islam, and since it is given to the prisoner to free himself from captivity it is like giving money to an indebted person for ridding himself of the debt.”


Our Obligation
Therefore, it is obligatory upon every single Muslim, wherever they reside, to work, directly or indirectly, towards the release of the Muslim captives irrespective of wherever they may be. Any Muslim with the capability to aid others yet fails to do so will be sinful. Everyone is responsible according to their ability; the greatest responsibility lies with those in authority, followed by the scholars, and so on – although the failure of those who bear greater responsibility to act does not absolve individuals of their own individual responsibilities.

If the captive is a Muslim woman, like our sister Aafia, the obligation becomes even greater, given the elevated status of women in Islam. The scholars of Islam are unanimous that a Muslim woman cannot be handed over to non-Muslims in any case. This Ummah has a glorious heritage of protecting Muslim women that we must endeavour to restore. Amongst the incidents narrated to this effect, is that of the honour of a believing woman attacked by members of the tribe of Quraydhah, and so, a believer fought to defend her until he was killed and an army was dispatched against the perpetrators.

As a nation, we have not fulfilled our obligation towards our sister, Aafia Siddiqui, as well as her children. We must exhaust every lawful means for her release and for the recovery of her children without fearing anyone but Allah. This may include, but is not limited to, direct involvement with organisations that work for this cause, donating money for it, raising awareness and actively speaking about her plight, writing in support of her and her family, and pressuring those governments complicit in her ordeal to end this injustice.

The least that is enjoined upon us is to supplicate to Allah for her as well other Muslim prisoners, as supplication is the weapon of a Muslim; it is incumbent upon every believer to supplicate for them as if we were supplicating on behalf of ourselves and our families.
“O Allah, deliver our sister and her children from this humiliation and torture at the hands of those who do not believe in You.”
May Allah ease the affairs of our sister Aafia and hasten her release from captivity. May He break free her shackles and the shackles of all of our oppressed prisoners. May Allah give them the strength to deal with their ordeal.

May Allah punish those who have oppressed our sister Aafia and continue to oppress her, may He defeat them and smite them, and may Allah forgive us for being negligent towards our Muslim brothers and sisters.

May Allah unite the hearts of the Muslims and grant us victory over our oppressors.

عدنان کا پیغام

بِسْمِ اللَّـهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ
اسلام و علیکم،
اللہ کے نام سے شروع کرتا ہوں جو آپ کا اور میرا مالک، رازق اور خالق ہے۔ میرے عزیز دوستوں، آج ہم کو وزیرستان، مالاکنڈ، باجوڑ وغیرہ میں کام کرتے ہوے کافی وقت ہو گیا یے، اتنا طویل عرصہ کیسے گزر گیا کچھ پتا ہی نہ چلا۔ اللہ کا احسان، کرم، فضل و کرم کا جتنا شکر ادا کروں کم ہے۔
اسلامی جمہوریہ پاکستان کی بہادر اور دلیر افواج نے جس بے باکی اور دلیرانہ انداز میں ان علاقوں سے طالبان نما جانوروں کا صفایا کیا اور دشمنانِ اسلام اور پاکستان کا خاتمہ کیا اِس پر افواجِ پاکستان، فرنٹیرکور کی جتنی تعریف کی جاے کم یے۔ ہم نے اپنی آنکھوں سے افواجِ پاکستان کو اِن ظالموں سے نبرد آزماں دیکھا ہے۔ ہم اپنی آرمی، اپنے قانون نافذ کرنے والے اِن اداروں پر ناز کرتے ہیں۔
یہ تو تھا تصویر کا ایک رُخ کی جس میں ہمارے قانون نافذکرنے والے اداروں نے اپنا کام مکمل کیا، تصویر کا دوسرا رخ بلکل الگ اور بہت تکلیف دینے والا ہے۔ آج میں صرف کچھ باتیں آپ کے گوش گزار کروں گا جو میں نے یہاں رہ کر دیکھی یا جن سے میرا واسطہ رہا ہے۔
مالاکنڈ، سوات، باجوڑ کی آیئ، ڈی، پیز کے ساتھ جو توھین آمیز سلوک روا رکھا گیا، جانوروں کی طرح خوراک تقسیم کری گئ، عزتِ نفس کو پامال کیا گیا، اور ایسا سلوک روا رکھا گیا کہ جیسے طالِبان تو ہیں ہی یہی لوگ۔ اللہ کی قسم، ایسی توہین کے بعد تو خُد مجھے اپنے انسان ہونے پر شک اور شرمندگی محسوس ہوئ۔ اللہ بھلا کرے، ایسے اداروں کا، حکومتی اہلکاروں کا،  جو ساری دنیا میں یہاں کے معصوم، لاچار، بےگناہ لوگوں کی تصاویر، وڈیو، کہانیاں بنا کر ساری دنیا سے بھیک مانگتے پھر رہے ہیں مگر یہاں کے لوگوں کو آج بھی، لاٹھی، ڈنڈا، اور جانوروں کی طرح خوراک، کپڑا، ادویات دی جا رہی یئں۔
اور ابھ وزیرستان کی باری ہے، پچھلے ہفتے میرا سراروغہ جانا ہوا، وانا بھی جانا ہوا، ایسا لگا ک جیسے یہاں کبھی کچھ تھا ہی نہی، تباہ حال مکان، بازار، گلیاں، محلے، اللہ اکبر، تباہی کا ایسا منظر تو زلزلے کے بعد ھی نظر آتا ھے، طالبان یہاں سے نکل تو گے، مگر کچھ سہی نہ چھوڑا کہ یہاں کے لوگ آباد نہ ہو سکیں، اپنی زندگی پھر سے شروع نہ کر سکیں۔
محترم، حکومتی اِداروں کا کیا حال ہے یہ سب ھی جانتے ہیں۔ کرپشن اپنے عروج پر ہے، انسانیت اپنے زوال پر ھے۔ وزیرستان ک لوگ بہت غیرت مند ھیں کسی کی دی ہوئ بھیک سے زیادہ خُد کی کمائ پر گزارا کرنا ان کا شیوہ ھے۔
ایسے میں یہاں کے لوگوں کو مدد نہی بلکہ ایسے زرایع مہیا کرنا ضروری ھیں کہ جن سے یہ لوگ اپنی زندگی میں واپس لوٹ سکیں۔ اور کسی بھی طرح کی امداد کی ترسیل، یا بحالی ک پروگرام کے لےء پاک فوج سے بھتر کو اداراہ نہیں ھو سکتا، کم از کم پاک فوج کو اِن ساری پلاننگ  کا نگران بنانا چاہیے تا کہ یہاں کے لوگ پوری ایمانداری سے اپنی زندگی شروع کر سکیں اور یہاں کے لوگوں کی قربانیاں ضایع نہ ہوں۔
اللہ پاک ہم سب کا اور پاکستان کا حامی و ناصر ہو، امین۔
جزاک اللہ
راقم، سید عدنان علی نقوی

The Days In Diseaster (Earthquake 2005)

Assalam O Alikum Friends,

Here is a short introduction of our beloved friend Syed Adnan Ali Naqvi. The massive earthquake - 2005 (in Pakistan) change his life and he is doing social work by himself for the victims of Earthquake, War on terror since long.

__________________________________________________________________________________________________

After burying his brother and sister who were killed by the earthquake in Pakistan, Syed Adnan Ali Naqvi left home to help the relief effort in the remotest parts of Pakistani-administered Kashmir.

He sent this account of his experiences to BBC Urdu.com and has been sending regular updates to the website ever since then.


This earthquake has changed my life. I had three sisters and two brothers but now I am left with two sisters and no brother.

On October 8 I was at my office in Karachi when my mother called me and said a very strong earthquake had hit Islamabad, northern Pakistan and Kashmir.

That evening, we went to Islamabad and straight to Margala Towers to look for my sister. It was complete mayhem. We were told that our best hope was to contact the local hospitals.

Margala Towers
Adnan’s sister died when Margala Towers collapsed in Islamabad

Our worst nightmare came true in the hospital mortuary. My mother and I spotted my sister’s locket around the neck of a dead woman. Her face was disfigured beyond recognition.

When my sister’s body was unearthed from the debris, a young child was found holding on to her. This was my 11-month-old nephew who also died but, unlike his mother, his face was unhurt. We recognised him immediately.

By then we had heard nothing from my brother who had gone to Balakot. I rushed there myself.

For the second time in 24 hours, my worst nightmare became a reality. A young man had rescued two bodies from a destroyed car.

My brother had died.

Return to Kashmir

I returned to Kashmir with a relief team.

What I have learned is that my personal loss and grief is nothing to what these people are going through.

My personal loss and grief is nothing to what these people are going through

In the small hours of 23 October we reached Naran. We saw people taking refuge in makeshift tents. Dozens of people were so badly injured that it would have been criminal not to stay and give them treatment.

In Jhelum Valley things were really bad. The doctors in our team told us that at least 17 children needed immediate treatment. But how could we take 17 kids back to Muzaffarabad? We had only just arrived on mules after hours of a very arduous journey.

Mahrukh and her ‘lala’

In the group, there was a young girl called Mahrukh. Her father, mother and sister died. She was left with her brother, whom she lovingly referred to as “my lala” (my dear brother).

Children in Muzaffarabad
At least 17,000 children died in the earthquake according to Unicef

Her lala was running a very high fever so we decided to take him and 16 other children back with us to Muzaffarabad on the mules. When she saw that we were taking him with us, Mahrukh said to me, “Adnan, this is all I have, please make sure my lala gets well”.

The journey was tiring and it rained. Children were getting sicker. Our doctors said they needed to be hospitalised.

But there is a huge gap between what we want and what we have.

The one thing we did not have any control over turned out to be the lives of the children we had taken with us. Seven died either on the way or after reaching the medical camp in Muzaffarabad.

Mahrukh’s lala was among those who did not survive.

I was really depressed, I didn’t know how I could face Marukh. I failed to save what she said was the only thing she had.

We came here to save lives but we’ve ended up giving back dead bodies to people who had little anyway.

Unbearable cold

People from all over the world have contacted me after reading my diary and they have been asking me how to help. I tell them only one thing: get here as soon as you can because the clock of death in this region is clicking fast.

This is everyone’s moment to save humanity.

It’s getting unbearably cold here in tents in Muzaffarabad. We don’t have enough warm clothes for the team.

We came here to save lives but we’ve ended up giving back dead bodies

Mahrukh, whom I had started calling Farhana (the name of my sister who died in Islamabad), developed a very high temperature.

I received an urgent call from a doctor on our team who said Mahrukh’s condition was deteriorating fast. We rushed to the hospital.

But now, Mahrukh, that beautiful young girl, is not with us.

Another life is no longer.

Dr Aafia Sidiqui

Pakistani national Aafia Siddiqui, recently convicted in the US in a shocking miscarriage of justice has now been refused all contact with her family and is being held in effect under “incommunicado” detention. She is being denied letters, visits, phone calls or any reading material, on the grounds that it impacts “the security of the nation”.

Background

Dr Aafia Siddiqui is a Neuroscientist originally from Pakistan and from an educated family. She studied in the United States, gaining a PhD in 2001. She is the mother of three children, and is regarded as an intelligent, practising Muslim woman.

Following her disappearance in March 2003, along with her three children, Aafia is believed to have been held in secret prisons at the behest of the CIA, suffering torture and abuse - the full details of which will probably never be known. At the end of this ordeal, she was framed in a shocking miscarriage of justice and accused of the attempted murder of two US army personnel.

The US claim that she was “found” outside the residence of the Governor of Ghazni carring a handbag containing unsecured documents on a USB drive detailing wildly fantastic terrorism plans with a list of targets, and bags containing various toxic chemicals. Aafia testified during her trial that she was given the handbag and did not know the contents therein. She also alluded to the fact she had been forced to copy some documents whilst in secret detention, whilst categorically denying authoring other documents found in her possession.

It is claimed that whilst she was held in the police station, a US soldier placed a loaded M4 Rifle on the floor, from whence she allegedly grabbed the rifle, swore at them and fired two shots. It is claimed that one individual lunged for her, whilst another shot her in the upper body, thus saving the day. During her trial, Aafia vociferously denied shooting anyone; Aafia's fingerprints were not found on the rifle nor were any bullets found in the room. There was no trace of any gun residue from the M4 rifle. Ahmed Gul, the interpreter present, gave conflicting testimony to his colleague Robert Snyder, as to how Siddiqui fired the weapon. The bullet holes on the wall claimed by the prosecution to have been caused by the rifle were already there before any shooting, as was confirmed in a photograph of the room taken earlier in the week. Despite over 20 people being present in the crowded room, Aafia's alleged two shots did not hit a single person. Aafia was subsequently taken to the US prison at Bagram before being extradited to the US in August 2008.

Unfortunately for Aafia, the case was heard in the United States, where fear has such a grip of the nation that to be Muslim in custody is sufficient proof of one's guilt. After little under 12 hours of jury deliberations, Aafia was convicted on all counts, despite no conclusive evidence. With her sentencing scheduled for May, she faces a maximum sentence of life in prison. Her two youngest children remain missing, their whereabouts unknown to date.

Aafia has now been refused all contact with her family and is being held effectively under “incommunicado” detention. She is denied any meaningful communication, not being permitted letters, visits, phonecalls or any reading material, on the pretext of "the security of the nation”.

Under the Eighth Amendment to the US Bill of Rights, it states :- “Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.” This Eighth Amendment makes no reference to being able to weigh this inalienable right against the need for national security.

In relation to visits, it was stated in the case of Overton v. Bazzetta in 2003 that, though they may defer to the experience of prison officials in giving some restrictions to visits, that "We do not hold, and we do not imply, that any right to intimate association is altogether terminated by incarceration.”

Take Action

Send a letter, fax or email to the prison authorities demanding that they cease the harassment of Dr Aafia Siddiqui

Send a letter, fax or email to all the key contacts requesting not only that they cease this cruel and unusual punishment, but that they immediately review the irregularities in the trial and free Dr Aafia.

Sample Letter

Dear ,

Dr Aafia Siddiqui (# 90279-054)

I am writing concerning Dr Aafia Siddiqui (# 90279-054), who is reportedly being denied access to reading materials, visits, phonecalls or any right to send or receive letters. This is particularly distressing given her fragile mental state and the ordeal that she has reportedly been subjected to over several years in US captivity.

Such actions, if true, would appear to be unlawful and and contrary to the spirit of the United States constitution, the Eight Amendment of which reads: .

“Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.”

The right to visitation was also confirmed in the Supreme Court, which though conceding that some restrictions may be permitted, held that it was not permitted to restrict this in totality. The Supreme Court stated that “We do not hold, and we do not imply, that any right to intimate association is altogether terminated by incarceration.”

I trust that you will immediately end these draconian restrictions on Dr Siddiqui's right to visitation and contact with her family, friends and supporters.

I look forward to your prompt and considered response.
Yours sincerely

"All of the Orphans, widows & others from Ashiyana Camp for IDP's, Waziristan"


Here is the original message we received from the legal team of Sister Aafia.

Sunday 28 March 2010 is the 7th anniversary of the kidnapping of Aafia Siddiqui and her children. To commemorate this, the Justice for Aafia Coalition (JFAC) has been formed - an umbrella organisation, currently spanning four continents, which aims to unite and direct all individuals and organisations concerned for our sister and working for her release.
We all should be aware of the plight of our sister Aafia Siddiqui who last month was convicted of the attempted murder of US soldiers in Afghanistan whilst in custody. The hidden side of this story is the fact that Aafia had been missing since 2003 and claims that she was kidnapped with her three children by the Pakistani intelligence services, transferred to US custody and held in a series of secret prisons away from her children for five years during which time she was repeatedly raped, tortured and abused. Two of her children remain missing to this day.

Aafia's trial was also flawed in that there was no evidence of any gun residue from the rifle she is alleged to have shot, no trace of her fingerprints on the rifle, no bullet shells found in the room or bullet holes in the wall. The testimonies of the soldiers conflicted with each other and with their own earlier statements. Despite the prosecution admitting Aafia was not a member of al-Qaeda or linked to any terrorist group, she was for all intents and purposes, tried as such. Her sentencing is on 6 May - she faces spending the rest of her life in an American maximum security prison. Since her conviction, she has been denied access to phone calls, sending or receiving letters, or any visits, in the interests of ‘national security.’


AAFIA SIDDIQUI DAY


Sunday 28 March 2010 is the 7th anniversary of the kidnapping of Aafia and her children. To commemorate this and to highlight Aafia's case as symbolic of the brutality of the 'war on terror' with the aim of having her repatriated to Pakistan and launching an investigation into the whereabouts of her missing children, the Justice for Aafia Coalition (JFAC - www.justiceforaafia.org) has been formed - an umbrella organisation, currently spanning four continents, which aims to unite and direct all individuals and organisations concerned for our sister and working for her release. In an international day of protest, we aim to have events, demonstrations, letter-writing campaigns, khutbahs, etc in towns and cities all over the world in solidarity with Aafia on the one day - 28 March.

All it takes is for each person to do the following:

a) Organise an event (or screening) in your locality; rather than asking us to supply speakers, people could spend one hour reading up on her case thoroughly and presenting it to his community. JFAC will aim to provide you with the necessary information pack to deliver a presentation. If people educate themselves on the case and do the talk themselves, it is more empowering than just having an external speaker come. If you are interested in organising an event or hosting a related documentary screening, please email events@justiceforaafia.org . All events will be publicised on our website.

b) Attend the Aafia Siddiqui Solidarity March, from the Pakistani embassy to the US embassy, in London on Sunday March 28th, 2pm. Promote this and for those living outside London, organise coaches to bring people down.

c) Get 20 people from your community to send a letter to both your local paper and a national paper in the week beginning 22 March. The letters should be short, to the point and mention Aafia Siddiqui Day, the kidnapping and detention, missing children and the event. The individual must collect the letters, buy the postage and envelopes and post the letters. You have 20 days from today to get 19 letters (excluding the one you send yourself).

d) Get 20 people (doesn’t have to be the same 20) to send a letter to Aafia that day, from children in particular. Even though she is currently being denied mail, if the volume is enough, they may just let a few through.

f) An information leaflet, campaign pack and other resources will be shortly available, along with translations of the campaign materials into as many languages as we can. The aim is that anyone in the world can then just print off their particular language and distribute, thereby empowering them and decreasing dependency.

g) Approach your local mosque or Islamic Society to dedicate their khutbah on Friday 26 March to the case of Aafia Sddiqui. A khutbah template will soon be available for download.

There are many other projects in development and events are confirmed for UK, USA, Pakistan, Canada, Ireland, and Australia.

WRITE TO AAFIA

We encourage both those who have written to her in the past and those whom would like too for the first time to send her a card, or letter to show Dr. Aafia that she has your moral support. The address is:

AAFIA SIDDIQUI # 90279-054
MDC BROOKLYN
METROPOLITAN DETENTION CENTER
P.O. BOX 329002
BROOKLYN, NY 11232

Please do not discuss her legal case or similar issues, but focus on notes of moral support.

Please note that past experience with the MDC has been that even though she is entitled to get letters, they tend to not deliver long personal letters – preferably post cards or greeting cards.

Post cards do not require a return address.

END A MESSAGE OF SUPPORT TO HER FAMILY

Please remind Aafia’s family that they are not forgotten and that they have your moral support.

Waziristan ki Rozina Bibi ka Letter.

بِسْمِ اللَّـهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ
Assalam O Alikum,
Waziristan k area Sararogha ke rehne wali humari behen Rozina bibi ny mulaqat kari aur kaha k uss k khayalat baqi logon tak puhancha diye jain, wu jesa jesa keh rahi hain mai wese he likh kar aap ko send kar raha hon. Aap ess ko apne blog par load kar dain.
Jazak ALLAH.

Assalam O Alikum,
Mera naam Rozina Bibi wald Zaryab hy, hum loog Waziristan k area Sararogha k rehne wale hain, Humari tehzeeb aur muashiry mai hum ko kisi gair mard k sath baat karna tu dour ke baat dekhne ke ejazat tak nahi hy. Jabh Waziristan mai operation shuru howa tu humare area mai Jirga lagaya gaya, masjid sy élan howa k hum loog 48-hours mai area khali kardain, jo loog area khali nahi karain gy un ko Taliban samjh k unn k khilaf karwai kari jai gee. Humare buzurgon ny yeah faisla kya k jitna jaldi mumkin ho area khali kardain apni aurton aur bachon ko yahan sy lai jain, Govt ke taraf sy élan kya gaya k Sararogha sy nikalne wale logon ko panah dee jai gee, unn k khane peene ka entizam kya jai gaa un ko ezat k sath rakha jai gaa, hum mai sy kuch loog tu apni gariun mai rawana howe aur kuch loog Govt ke bheji gai gariun mai baith kar rawana howe, hum sabh ko yaqeen tha k humare gher bar, janwer, ezat aur hurmat mehfooz rahe gee. Mager jese hum ko Waziristan sy bahar ly jaya gaya humare sath janwaron wala salook howa., pehle tu hum ko tents mai rakha gaya humare khandan k buzzurgon, mardon, bachon aur aurton ko alag alag kar dia gaya, buzurgon aur jawan mardon k sath buhat he be ezati kari gai, unn sy ajeeb ajeeb sawalat kare gai, un ke ezaton ko pamal kia gaya, phir aurton k sath buhat he touheen amez rawaya rakha gaya. Ess operation sy pehle humare area mai Taliban ny apni hakoomat rakhi hoi thi, wou humare maal, maweshi jabh chahy aur jiss tarhan chahe use karte thy, humari ladies sy jis ka chahe nikah parwa diya karte thy. Humare bachon ko school ke taleem hasil karne sy rook diya karte thy, mutlab yea k hum sabh Taliban k mehkoom thy, humare buzurg jo buhat ziada Islamic mind rakhty hain unn k kafi baton sy agreed bhi hote rahe kabhi majbooran kabhi naa chahte howe bhi. Aur jabh Taliban k khilaf operation howa tu hum ny sakoon ka sans liya k abh halat behter aur sahi ho jain ge, mgr hum logon k sath jo salook rakha gaya aur rakha jaa raha hy wo buhat touheen wala hy, humare buzurgon ko lambi line mai khara kar k un ko food supply k naam par kuch saman pakra diya jata hy (wo bhi weekly) ye saman humare 19-22 afrad k liye bilkul pora nahi hota. Humari aurton ko ager koi beemari ho jai tu un ko anparh, jahil aur choote mind wale doctors k o dikhaya jata hy jo humara elaj kam karte hain aur apna elaj ziada (ye batain ziada khol kar nahi batai jaa sakti). Pichle dino humari chooti bhabhi ko zachgi (bache ke pedaish) k liye ek doctor k pas bheja gaya jo bilkul jahil tha. Humare area mai ek mard ke taraf dekhna thak gunah samjha jata hy mgr yahan humarai bachon ke paidaish k liye male doctors bheje gai hain wo bhi shayad doctors nahi hain. Beemari chahye koi ho hum ko sirf Ponstan ke tablets ya Calpol ka syrup dy dia jata hy. Humare bache jin ka adha mustaqbil already he Taliban ke wajha sy barbad ho chukka tha abh esa lagta hy k enn halat mai humare bache bilkul barbad ho chuke hain. Hum loog apni family k sath pehle D.I. Khan mai thy mgr wahan NGO’s ny afrah tafreeh laga rakhi hy jahan humare buzurgon ny ye faisla kya k chahye kuch bhi ho apni ezat k khialf hum na tu koi koi kaam karain gy na he kisi ke bat sunain gy. Hum pehle Abotabad gai aur abh Peshawar agai hain. Yahan hum 22 afrad ke family ek 2 kamron k makkan mai rehti hy jiss ka kiraya aam halat main Rs. 1000-1500 hona chahiye abh
Rs. 3000/= hy. Humare mard mehnat mazdoori karne k liye subh nikalte hain mager yahan hum ko koi kaam bhi nahi deta. Majboran humari aurton ny socha k wo gharon mai kaam karain mgr ye tajurba bhi nakam raha. Kiun k ensaniyat tu shayad kahin dafan ho gai hy har koi hum jese logon ke majbori sy faida uthane ke koshish kar raha hy. Hum ko kisi ny Adnan bhai aur Ashiyana k bare mai bataya hum enn logon ko buhat dinon sy talash kar rahe hain kiun k hum buhat thak chuke hain, hum har NGO k pas gai, koi kehta hy k sabh k B’ form lao, koi kehta hy k application likh kar du, koi kehta hy k kisi ka reference ly kar aoo etc etc, Govt ka tu ALLAH he hafiz hy, kabhi kisi wazir ya mushir (minister or advisor) ny humari khaber na lee, MPA ya MNA ka naam tu hum ko pata bhi nahi hain. Esse mai hum log agr jain bhi tu kahan jain? Abh tu Masjid jane sy bhi daar lagta hy k kabhi koi Taliban attack kar dy aur naam humare buzurgon par ajai. Hum loog Karachi jana chahty hain mgr ess bhai ny bataya k Karachi jaa kar bhi wohi sabh kuch milna hy jo yahan mil raha hy. Hum ko koi jawab dy k akhir humara qasoor kya hy? Hum loog tu apni zindagi jese tese kar k guzar he rahe thy Taliban thy halat jese bhi thy, mager hum ko apne gharoon par tu thy, wu ek gher sy ek jawan ly jate thy mger uss ek jawan k badle hum ko apni zindagi guzarne ke ejazat tu thi hum bhi apne dilon par pathar rakh kar ek jawan ke qurbani dy dia karte thy k ezat tu mehfooz hy, apne ghar par tu hain rozi rooti tu chal rahi hy. Mgr ye operation k baad kiss ke zimedari (responsibility) hy k hum jesse hazaroon (thousands) logon ka khayal rakhain, hum ko ziada nahi chahiye, hum tu sirf ezat sy rooti aur apne bachon k mehfooz mustaqbil ke bat karte hain. Koi kehta hy k hum ko apne areas mai jane ke ejazat milne main abhi aur ek dou mahina lag sakta hy. Etna time hum kahan guzarain gy aur kese guzarain gy? Aur ess bat ke kya zamanat (surety) hy k jabh hum apne areas mai wapis jain gy tu wahan sabh kuch pehle jesa hoga, humara ghar, humara karobar, humara rhena, hum ko tu ye bhi pata chala hy k humare gharon par etne bombing kari gai hy k abh tu sahi sy pata chalana mushkil hy k kon sag her kis ka hy ya koi gher tha bhi k nahi. Govt jabh dekho apna rona rooti rehti hy akhbar (news papers) tv mai dekho tu enn k pass khud k liye kuch nahi hy tu ye loog humare liye kia karain gy. Hum loog ese halat mai akhir karain bhi tu kya karain? Mai ny thoda buhat parha likha hy, aur apne area sy nikalne k baad ess dunya k buhat rang dekhe hain. Jaga jaga jaa jaa kar thak gai hain. Abh tu ese lagta hy k ess Govt k operation sy acha tu Taliban he thy. Ya fir Govt ko chahiye tha k hum ko wahan sy nahi nikalti, bagair batai he hum par bombing kar deti naa hum zinda rehte na he ye rona hota. Na hum dar dark e thokarain khate. Na humari aurton ko ese be ezat hona parta na humare mardon ko un khwar hona parta.
Army walon ny tu apna kaam sahi kya hum ko pori ezat k sath humare areas sy nikala aur sunna hy k operation bhi kamyab ho gaya, wu Taliban jo Islam k naam par hum ko ruswa kar rahe thy jin sy hum sabh pareshan thy un ko abh chupne ke jaga bhi nahi mil rahi hy. Mgr abh ye kiss ke zimedari hy k hum ko humari ezat wapis dilai jai. Apne area sy nikalne sy pehle hum tu buhat khush thy k hum tu Pakistani hain aur Pakistan k liye apne gharon ko, apni roozi rooti ko qurban kar rahe hain mager yahan anai k baad esa lag raha hy k jese hum he sabh sy bare mujrim hain, Taliban jese hum he thy balke ulta Govt aur NGO’s hum par ehsan kar rahi hain.
Meri apne sare Pakistani Bhaiun sy appeal hy, Khuddara hum ko aur khilona na banain, hum ko aur zaleel aur ruswa na karain, humari ezaton ke hifazat karain, humare buzurgon ke esi touheen na karain k hum bhi sharminda ho jain. Hum tu paharon mai rehne wale loog hain, mehnat, ezat, halal rooti khana humari riwayat hy. Hum esse halat mai bhi apne liye rozgar mangty hain k jis sy hum apne bachon ka pait paal sakain, hum kisi par bojh banna nahi chahte hain, hum bheek mangna nahi chahty, hum dobara sy Taliban k hathon nahi lagna chahty hain. Hum logon bhi Pakistani aur Muslim samjha jai. Humari bhi ezat wese he kari jai k jese es mulk k badshahon ke hoti hy. Humare liye bhi wou sabh mawakhe (opertunities) rakhi jain jo k Peshawar, Islamabad, Lahor, Karachi walon ko haisl hain. Ager emandari (honesty) sy dekha jai tu hum sy ziada Muslim aur Pakistani kon hoga jo ess mulk ke khatir apne gharon ko qurban kar chukka ho. Apni janon ko qurban kar chukka ho. Aur shayad apni ezaton ko bhi qurban kar chukka ho.
Mai Rozina Bibi, aaj himat kar k yahan ess bhai k pass aye hon, aur mujhe yahan akar kuch ziada tu nahi mila mgr himat, sabar aur hosla zaroor mila hy. ALLAH ess bhai ko bhi khush rakhe. Ess sy pehle Media wale milty rahe hain, akhbar wale milte rahe hain, ghanton humare pass baith kar humari kahaniun sunte rahe hain aur apne channels aur akhbaron mai likh likh kar khoob kamai kama rahe hain. Kya yehi ensaf hy? Kya yehi Pakistan hy? kya yehi humari qurbaniun ka silla hy? Jo bhi mila ek bar mila wade kare aur gayab ho gaya? Unn k peche jao tu sahib kabhi meeting mai hote hani kabhi out of the city. Abh hum ese mai jain bhi tu kahan jain? Karain bhi tu kya karain?
Mager mujhe meri baton ka mere jese khandano ka jawab kon de ga? ? ? KHUDDA ke qasam ji tu yehi chahta hy k apne sare gher walon ko zeher pila don aur khud bhi apne aap ko mar lon.

Ek sache Pakistani aur Muslim,
Aap ke behen Rozina Bibi aur Khandan wale.

Ps: Dear all, yeah sirf ek khatoon ke bipta nahi hy, essi pata nahi kitni khawateen hain jo apne Dillon mai zakh liye howe hain, mgr zabans sy uff tak nahi kar rahi hain kiun k yahan k logon ka culture enn ko ess bat ke ejazat nahi de raha. Agr mujh sy pocha jai tu mai kabhi bhi ye bipta na likhon na sunaon, kiun k ess Rozina ki tarha mujhe bhi pora yaqeen hy k loog ess ke kahani ko sirf ek kahani ke tarha sunain gy, dekhain gy aur parhe gai aur ufff, touba, Ya ALLAH keh kar ek dafa fir sy apne apne kamon mai masrof ho jain gy, ese logon ke daad rasi karne ya enn ke maddad ko koi nahi aye gaa aur shayad Rozina bibi apne khandan walon k liye ezat dhoondhti, apne bachon k liye ache mustaqbil ke umid karti ess dunya sy kooch kar jai gee. “Ashiyana, kuch ziada tu nahi kar askta, mgr apni pori koshish kare gaa. Kuch ziada nahi tu Ashiyana ka ek member ess khandan k sath mustaqil contact mai rahe gaa. Insha ALLAH.
Yeah record mai rahe k yeah sabh Rozina Bibi k kehne par hi upload kia jaa raha hy, Humare pass camera wagera nahi hy nahi tu Rozina Bibi ny apni aur apne khandan ke video & pictures banana ke ejazat dy de thi. ALLAH Pak ess khatoon aur enn k khandan walon ko himat, hosla aur saber ata farmai, Amen.
Jazak ALLAH.

War against terror (Pakistan)

Muhtram,
Assalam O Alikum,

With the name of ALLAH Almighty. We are doing our best. And feel like to inform you as much as we can about the situation, about the work of ours what we are doing here. And also to make you remind that what you can do for the victims, infants, sick peoples, widows & orphans of the war infected areas, (Waziristan, Swat, Malakand, Bajour etc).

ALLAH ka shukr, ehsan and enam hy hum par k uss ny hum ko ek essi khidmat karne ka moukha ata kya jo buhat he kaam logon ko hasil hota hy, aur ALLAH ka buhat karam hy k mujh jese haqeer ensan ko essi toufeeq atta farmai k mai yahan k logon k liye agr kuch kar bhi na sakon tu kam uz kam yahan k logon k sath reh sakon enn k dukh dard batne k liye. ALLAH ke ess karam nawazi par mai jitna shuker ada karon kaam hy.

Wese tu media k through aap sabh he ko yahan k halat sy agahi hasil ho rahi hogi. mgr buhat kam sachi he Pakistan tak puhanch rahi hy. Kiun k jo sach hy wo tu yahan he reh jata hy aur jo nahi hy wo yahan sy bahar chala jata hy, ALLAH ny esse logon ka anjam buhat he sakht rakha hy jo sachai ko daba kar jhoot, makar aur faraib ko paish karte hain, Kiun k hum subh muslalman hain aur ye bat achi tarhan jante hain k yea dunya buhat he kaam hy, yahan ensan ke zindagi hum apni fingures par count kar sakte hain mgr after death jo life hy wu humari essi life ka reuslt hoga aur ALLAH hum ko zilat, ruswai aur makr o faraib ke zindagi sy mehfooz farmai, Ameen.

ALLAH ny ese logon ka anjam bhi buhat sakht likha hy jo ensan ko ensan na samjhain, ek muslalman ke zindagi ko haqeer samjhain aur sirf apne maal o doolat ke hawis kare. ALLAH hum ko esse zilat sy bhi mehfooz farmai, Ameen.

Main jabh jabh moukha milta hai aur jabh jabh mujhe yahan sy (war infected area) bahar nikalne ka moukha milta hai mai throught internet, phone calls, sms apne sab he doston ko agah rakhne ke koshish karta hon. kuch dost ese hain jo mera mazakh urate hain, kuch dost yaqeen aur na yaqeeni ke kefiyat mai rehte hain, kuch dost buss sunte hain aur kuch dost meri baton ko serious lete hain aur kam uz kam dua tu karte he hain. ALLAH hum sabh ko apni zaat sy barh kar karne ke toufeeq aur himat hosla ata farmai, Ameen.

Mere bare mai loog kya kehte hain mujhe ess sy koi garaz nahi, kiun k mera cause, meri mehnat, mera work mere liye nahi hy, Mai tu ek buhat mamooli sa ensan hon, ALLAH ny ye azeem moukha ata farmaya k main apni zaat sy agr kisi ko kuch faida puhancha sakon tu puhanchaon, jo jo kar sakta hon karon, aur meri puri koshish yehi hy k mai woohi karon jo ALLAH ny hukam diya hy.

Ashiyana, k bare mai bhi mujhe kuch parhne ko aur sunne ko milla, koi kuch kehta hy koi kuch likhta hy. Ashiyana k bare mai arz hy k, Ashiyana koi NGO nahi hy, koi organization nahi hy, balke mere ek erade ka naam hy, kiun k mai Adnan k naam sy nahi apne cauze aur maqsad k liye zinda hon. aur Ashiyana meri zindagi k usi maqsad ka naam hy. essi liye Ashiyana ko har jaga pana mumkin nahi, jahan jahan mai jata hon aur 2-4 din rehta hon woohi jaga Ashiyana bana leta hon.

Ashiyana, name bhi khud mera banaya howa nahi hy, balke pehle hum ny ess ka name Kashan camp rakhne ka socha kabhi kuch kabhi kuch, kuch doston ny mere maqsad ko meri walida e muhtarima k naam sy rakhne k liye bhi kaha. mgr Ashiyana is came from Ayesha. Ayesha ussi bachi ka naam hy jo mujhe Earthqucak-2005 mai milli aur ussi k name sy apna maqsad shuru kya. ALLAH k fazl o karam sy 2005 sy aaj tak jis qadar mumkin howa mai ny ess nam k through victims ke maddad karne ke koshish kari.


Remote areas, (Malakand, waziristam, swat, Bajour) ye sabh esse areas hain jahan normal halat mai bhi loog jane sy darte hain, kiun k yahan ka culture, yahan k logon ka rawaya aur bartaow shayad cities mai rehne walon k liye samjh sy bahar hota hy, mgr ye haqeeqat buhat kaam log jante hain k yahan k loog jiss qadar mehman nawaz, muhabat, khaloos karne wale hote hain esse tu shayad he dunya mai kahi aur hote hon. Pak army ny jabh enn areas mai operation shuru kya tu mai karachi mai tha. mere dil mai khayal aya k jabh operation hoga tu pata nahi kitne loog evucate honge, aur jane kahan jain gy. Govt nay ek proper announcement bhi kardi uss k baad jo howa wo sabh k samne hy. pata nahi kitni AID aur help kahan kahan sy aye pata nahi aur kahan kahan gai ye bhi ALLAH he k ilm mai hy. yahan k logon ko sirf utna diya gaya k jiss sy wo zinda reh sakain. etna nahi k wo khud sy apne aap ko apne pairon par khara kar sakain, wo tu bhala ho kuch ache logon kaa jo kisi na kisi tarha yahan k logon k kaam ate rahe hain.

Kuch doston k kehne par mai ny internet per blogging shuru kari. jis ko time milte he update karne ke koshish karta hon, mgr kya update karon aur kahan tak update karon yehi samjh sy bahar hy, agr wahan k logon ka zikr karon, wahan k halat ka zikr karon tu loog kahain gy k pata nahi kiss dunya ke baat kar raha hon. kya essa bhi mumkin hy, aur agr apne bare mai kuch likhon tu dost samjhain gy k ye banda tu khud k liye he kaam kar raha hy. 2005 sy aaj tak meri zindagi mai buhat buhat mushkil marahil aye mgr ALLAH ny kisi na kisi tarha meri maddad farmai aur har waqt guzarta gaya.

Mgr yea jo halat aaj kal hain esse halat ko dekh kar sirf aur sirf ankhain band kar k roya he jaa sakta hy, kiun k ek taraf loog Islamabad mai baith kar dunya sy bheek mang rahe hain aur ek taraf ye loog hain jo bheek nahi mangte sirf apna haq mangty hain, jin ke zindagi ko war on terror k naam par barbad kardia gaya hy, jin k bachon ka future khatam kar dia gaya hy, jin ke aurton k saron sy chadar khinch le gai hy, jin k gharon ko masmaar kar dia gaya hy, pata nahi kitne bache yateem (orphan) ho gai hain pata nahi kitne aurtain bewa (widow) ho gai hain, pata nahi kitne buzurgon ka sahara un sy buhat dour chala gaya hy, Kon sahi hy aur kon galat, ess ka faisla tu sirf aur sirf ane wala waqt kare gaa. Mgr kya hum sabh ALLAH ko bilkul he bhol gai hain, ALLAH ke taleemat ko bilkul he bhool chuke hain? ALLAH ny tu apni taleem mai kahi nahi farmaya k ek dehshat gard ko pakarne k liye pori pori bastiun aur areas ko barbad kardo. enn sabh halat k zimedar tu hum khud hain aur abh pori dunya k agai yehi rona rou rahe hain k ye sabh tu koi beroni taqat kara rahi hy, Kya hum apne liye kisi esse gher ka khayal kar sakte hain k jiss mai koi bahar sy akar humare gharoon ko barbad kar jai aur hum jaan tak na sakain k kon aya, tu ye PAKISTAN tu hum sabh ka gher hy, essa kese mumkin hy k koi bahar sy aye aur hum ko barbad kar jai, humari nasloon ko khatam kar jai, aur hum ko khabar tak na ho. Can't belive on this theory.

Aur jabh ye sabh hum ny kar he diya hy tu ye konsa tareeqa hy k hum apne he hathoon sy, apni he armey k through apne he areas ko esse banjer aur nest o nabood kardain k jin ko abh phir sy rebuild hone mai pata nahi kitne saal lagain gy aur humari naslain barbad ho jain???

en sabh baton ka jawab agr kisi ny hasil karna hy tu sirf ek dafa only one time enn areas k andar jain, yahan k logon sy milain, yahan k logon sy baat karain, k jo abh tu bolna bhi bhol gai hain buss kisi machine ke tarha subh tuhte hain sara din asman ko takte hain aur raat ko so jate hain, ye zindagi kisi janwer ke zindagi sy bhi bad tar hy. cities mai baith kar batain karna buhat he asan hy, tv chennels par baith kar dailog marna aur bhi asan, kamron mai baith kar likhna bhi asan. mgr thoda sa raqam khaach kar k yahan enn logon k beech mai ana, aur himat karna k jabh asmanon par DRONE urh rahe hon aur zameen bar baklter band tanks chal rahe hon tu jeena khud kitna mushkil hota hy ess ka andaza tu sirf yahan akar he ho sakta hy. Last time Daa Dola jana howa, aorakzai bhi jana howa, Masha ALLAH DRONE jis dhitai sy ate hain aur hamla karte hain unn ke himat ko daad deni parti hy, ye pata nahi kesi technology hy k jiss mai kisi ek target ko hit karne k liye pori ke pori basti ko nishana banaya jata hy. ye jane konsa ensaf hy k kuch dehshat gardon ke talash mai pore k pure base basai gher ko mismar kar dia jata hy aur wahan k logon sy ye kaha jata hy k tum loog ye areas khali kardo, kiun k hum ko yahan operatiojn karna hy jiss jiss ny ye area khali nahi kya uss ko Taliban ya dehshat gard samjha jai gaa.
Ese halat mai agr ye loog jain bhi tu kahan jain? kiss k agai apna rona roye, kiss sy emdad ke umid karain.

Mere muhtram bhai. ye sabh likhne ka maqsad kisi ke dil azari nahi naa he kuch aur, mgr jo dard mai ny saha hy aur seh raha hon woohi dard mai sirf aap tak puhchana chahta hon. mai apni zaat mai kuch nahi agr mera ye mulk Pakistan hy tu mai bhi hon, mere Pakistan mai basne wale ye Pakhtoon bhai hain tu mai bhi hon. enn logon ka future hy tu mera bhi future hai. Meri aap sy appeal hy k enn logo k liye jahan jahan tak awaz puhancha sakte hain aap puhanchain, jo jo kar sakte hain karain.

Waziristan (an appeal)

بِسْمِ اللَّـهِ الرَّحْمَـٰنِ الرَّحِيمِ

Assalam O Alikum Brothers, Sisters, Friends & Visitors.

With the name of ALLAH Almighty,

الف لام میم (حقیقی معنی اﷲ اور رسول صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ہی بہتر جانتے ہیں) (١) (یہ) وہ عظیم کتاب ہے جسمیں کسی شک کی گنجائش نہیں، (یہ) پرہیزگاروں کے لئے ہدایت ہے، (٢) جو غیب پر ایمان لاتے اور نماز کو (تمام حقوق کے ساتھ) قائم کرتے ہیں اور جو کچھ ہم نے انہیں عطا کیا ہے اس میں سے (ہماری راہ) میں خرچ کرتے ہیں
ا للھ ھی کی زات جو ھرطرح کے عیب سے پآک ھے،

With another begging request & another appeal we are in front of the world, in front of Pakistan, infront of the Muslim Ummah, I really don;t know why we are behaving as nothing is happening in this world, Nothing is happening with our Muslims brother's and sisters, nothing is happening with those who are attacking by allied forces. As far as I am visiting these areas, Waziristan, Malakand, Bajour, Swat, these areas are still facing the worse condition as they ever felt before.

Ashiyana camp has been established at Malakand, Swat, Bajour & now at Waziristan. We did our best of best try to accommodate the victims with food, medicines, clothes and others supplies. We know that we don't have a huge amount to spend on them; we know that our budget is not exceeding to work on these people. When I cam here, I had a plane to work with the local's and will try to attach my others Pakistani friends to spend some of their time with few of bugs with the victims of those areas. But unfortunately, we didn't as the trust, sincerity; care is the core issue for us. Nobody wants to go in these areas as they are afraid from die. Nobody wants to do something for these victims as they thought Govt and NGO's also doing there best. Alas! Only once the people of Pakistan try to take a visit of these camps and find by there own self what is going on here.

We have shutdown the Ashiyana Camp - II @ Bajour as we feel that many of the NGO’s and Government organization are established there, We started at Tank (Waziristan) with a new hope and new courage. Many of friends were with us on that time. Many of the sponsors with us. But as per time gone nobody with us but two or one. We are thankful to all of the friends who were with us from the start till end. ALLAH gives them ajar.

In short, Ashiyana (Waziristan) which was established with the help of the locals is facing a very worse condition as the whole Waziristan is facing. I have written before that the whole area is like a prison or a cage for the pet animals. I don’t know why our local media is unable to get an access in these areas to show the condition of the victims. After a heavy rainfall of the last week, with a light snowfall. Our 2- Tents damaged, in which more than 50 peoples are living. We have decided to shutdown this camp too. But what to do with these peoples who are living with us. I am personally very tired with all of this. In this time I am all alone,

There’s no food, no medicines, no clothes in my camp. Nothing is available in the Tank. The wear houses of the NGO’s may be full or not (em not sure about it). But I have nothing. I did try my level best to contact the peoples, including Government organizations, NGO’s and the allied class of the country as much as I could. But still there’s no response from them. The current situation of the Ashiyana (Waziristan) is;

173 peoples without any shelter (including, olders, childs, infant, +19 orphans)

No food (only few of the bags of rice & beans)

No medicines (nothing)

No clothes (Nothing)

This is sorry to inform all of the readers that I went to Peshawer on a bheek mission. And I earn only 5 bags of 10 kilogram (Flour), few of sugar, few of salt. But no medicines, as people thought that many of the NGO’s are working in these areas and have enough to recover the peoples.

I have asked from my friends of Lahore, Islamabad, Multan & Karachi to help me out to cover-up this issue there are lots of the promises but no hope yet.

One thing to be remembers that I am not asking any thing for me. I am not asking money for me, I am not asking clothes for me, I am not asking medicines for me. There are hundreds of the infant are there, many of the orphans are there, many of the widows are there, and many of the sick persons are there who are seeking for AID a proper AID from the us. I am asking for them whatever the other people thinks that I am begging or else. We are all the responsible of this condition of these peoples. We do need to workout for them otherwise another disaster will arise soon and I am sure that will be not only for this area but for all Pakistan or may be for the rest of the world.


This is me your brother, friend.
Jazak ALLAH
