The Gambia filing a lawsuit against Burma at ICJ would not have been possible without a thoughtful strategy and efforts by American Muslims. This story will Insha Allah come out.

Here are the efforts which led to this major step:

I called Arsalan Suleman today to congratulate him on the Gambian submitting a case against Burma for its genocide of Rohingyas. It is an extraordinary step and Arsalan strategized and worked on it. He is the former Obama appointee to US representative to the OIC, the Organization of Islamic Countries.

American Muslims have played a critical role in leading up to the world acceptance that Burma is committing genocide against Rohingyas. Burma Task Force a coalition of 38 Muslim organizations and an interfaith coalition which we established working with many other allies and independent human rights organizations and Rohingya advocates all can take comfort that now Burma in both the International judicial bodies, ICC and ICJ stands indicted. Burma Task Force, its fiscal agent Justice For All and both based in Sound Vision offices and are powered by it.

* Burma Task Force declared it to be a genocide: 2012
* Amnesty International blocks Abdul Malik Mujahid, Chair Burma Task Force, from speaking since they did not agree with the genocide position: 2013
* Burmese Muslim Association resigns from Burma Task Force accusing it of exaggeration calling it a genocide: 2013
* Burma Task Force organized/sponsored academic conferences to provide depth to the argument of genocide: 2012-2015
* Maung Zarni and Natalie Brinham published first academic paper arguing it is a genocide: 2014
* Maung Zarni and Burma Task Force co-organized a conference at Nobel Peace Institute Oslo Norway: 2015
* Maung Zarni and Burma Task Force issued 7 Nobel Peace Laureates Statement that it is a textbook case of genocide: 2015
* Burma Task Force created interFaith Coalition to Stop Genocide in Burma: 2017
* Burma Task Force efforts resulted in Republican National Committee passing a resolution that it is a genocide: 2018
* Burma Task Force Canada led efforts which resulted in Canada declaring it a genocide: 2018
* US House passes resolution declaring it a genocide thanks to Burma Task Force lobbying efforts US: 2018
* Burma Task Force files at International Criminal Court (ICC) on behalf of the Tula Toli victims of genocide: 2019
* 55 Christian Evangelical leaders wrote to President Trump urging him to rescind President Obama’s executive orders lifting sanctions from Burma which gave green light to Burma to commit genocide: 2019
* Burma Task Force organized two lobbying days including Rohingyas, Kachin, Kiran and others at the Congress: 2019
* Arsalan Muhammad, former US ambassador to OIC led efforts for OIC and Gambia to file at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) to declare it a genocide.: 2019

Justice For All the fiscal agent of Burma Task Force is emerging as a human rights organization with a lobbying firm, a Public Relations firm, two representatives at the United Nations and two attorneys engaged by us at the International Criminal Court.

I request you to please fund this extraordinary organization which now is working on SaveUighur and FreeKashmir.org causes along with the Rohingya cause. https://buff.ly/370fiML…/contribute/transact… Hena Zuberi

🔊 *Babri Masjid & Modi: Thinking Points & Talking Points* 🔊

The RSS, which is the paramilitary Hindu organization of India, has conquered another mosque in that country, marching forward with its anti-minority fascist agenda under the leadership of Prime Minister Modi, who is himself a member of RSS.

Modi was in fact banned from entering the USA, UK and Canada because he presided over a massacre of Muslims as the RSS demolished the 500-year-old Babri mosque on Dec 6, 1992.

The land of Mahatma Gandhi has been taken over by his killers. Today, the chief of the RSS is enjoying the same security in India as the Prime Minister of India. That is fitting, as RSS runs India today.

Institution after institution has been taken over by the RSS. India’s Supreme Court is one such institution. The Supreme Court had acknowledged that the installation of idols in the Masjid was illegal. It has also called the demolishing of the Masjid in 1992 while the police and administration watched illegal.

However, by ruling in favor of those who committed the heinous acts, and now claim it to be the birthplace of Ram with no supporting evidence, the Supreme Court has now legalized their actions by awarding the mosque and its endowment of 65 acres to Hindu extremists.

Bricks and mortar do not matter. It is the trauma being inflicted on 200 million Indian Muslims that matters the most. Bit by bit, they are being ghettoized and turned into second-class citizens of their homeland. That is exactly what the RSS wants.

Today India is the only country in the world with two genocide alerts in place. One is in its state of Assam, where the government has stripped 1.9 million Muslims of their citizenship. The second is for Indian-occupied Kashmir, where rape, torture, and the kidnapping of young boys has become the Indian army’s modus operandi.

Long ago, the RSS declared Indian Muslims are like the Jews of Nazi Germany, and that they will deal with them as Hitler dealt with the Jews. What they must remember, however, is what happened to Hitler and his ideology.

*Thinking Points*

×× The cycle of terror-war-Islamophobia continues to produce trauma, mental as well as physical. The governments and armies of China, India, Burma, and the Central African Republic have all used the same tactics to target the Uighurs, the Kashmiris, the Rohingya and Muslims in the Central African Republic. It starts with accusations of being foreigners, terrorists, and extremists. This dehumanization then lays the groundwork for rape, torture, and ultimately, genocide.

××What can Muslims do to break the vicious cycle of terror-war-Islamophobia?

××The masters of Islamophobia operate from the United States, where they benefit from hundreds of millions of dollars from non-profit organizations set up to promote their deadly agenda. What budget have American Muslims and their allies allocated to counter this deadly propaganda that is killing our brothers and sisters around the world?

××Masjids are the usual target of Islamophobes worldwide

- Extremists are targeting thousands of mosques in India. Prayer for Muslims at the mosque next to the historic Taj Mahal has already been prohibited. And calls are being made to turn Taj Mahal to Ram Mahal

- China is demolishing mosques a d churches

- In Burma, thousands of Rohingya mosques have been razed to the ground

- US Ambassador Samantha Power told the United Nations four years ago that almost all mosques in the Central African Republic are demolished.

Mosques have also been a target in Europe, the United States, and Canada as well. However, law enforcement in these countries protects mosques and prosecutes the criminals

*Etiquette of Criticizing others*

××First, think about your motives before speaking. Our aim when speaking up and speaking out must be for the sake of God, His acceptance and love. And God loves human interconnectedness and goodwill, not hate and intolerance

××Muslims must be just. While criticizing RSS extremists, we must not generalize their deadly deeds to all Hindus and all Indians. Otherwise, we will be guilty of dehumanization as well

××Islam emphasizes the importance of not insulting other people’s faith or beliefs (6:108). We must remember this when making our points

*Talking Points in your family*

××It is important to emphasize that freedom of religion in America, law and order, and our democracy make America a better place for people of all religions to practice their faith. These freedoms must be protected. This is yet another reason to be engaged and active in our election cycle

××Ask children what they know about Islamophobia

××Children are a part of the global village. They need to know what is happening to Muslims abroad

××Can your family plan to devote time and money this election cycle to protect our freedoms?

××Can you volunteer 3 hours a week for 3 months to protect the freedom of Muslims in Kashmir, India, China and Burma?

*In the mosque*

××We request that the points mentioned here be used in Khutbas to educate the community about 1. The state of Indian Muslims 2. The cycle of terror-war-Islamophobia 3. The importance of religious freedom in Islam and in the American constitution. 4. The demolition of mosques around the world.

××Here is an article by Imam Malik Mujahid about human connectedness in Islam that can be used for a Khutba

Breast Cancer in the Muslim community: Challenges and opportunities | SoundVision.com

Based on community surveys, they found that 37% of the 254 Muslim women surveyed in the Chicago area had not obtained a mammogram in the previous two years. In Detroit, 42 percent of the 365 women surveyed reported not having a mammogram every one to two years.

This is in line with broader statistics that found that in 2015, while 65.3% of U.S. women above the age of 40 had a mammogram, lower rates were observed among racial and ethnic minorities.

Samana Siddiqui When Nazli Hussain was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer in the summer of 2017, it was barely weeks after a Muslim friend had asked why she even bothered getting mammograms every year.  “It’s good to know before instead of not knowing and then you can’t have a...

In Kashmir, Strength Lies In Changing Course | NewsClick

""If restrictions are, for instance, just “in our mind” then why is the news blackout of all news except for government propaganda and news from far? Why is it that barring restoring 23,000 landlines, eight million mobiles are shut, there is a complete internet lock-down and restrictions on movement? Are all these also merely a figment of one’s imagination? Why is the argument advanced by unnamed officials insistent that the communication shutdown has been imposed to save Kashmiris from getting “indoctrinated”? Implying that it is part of government policy to restrict people from interacting, networking or contradicting the official version. As for normal life, if it has “not been affected” then why deploy 9.5 lakh troops, bring back bunkers again after 10 years, place barriers and checkpoints on roads and highways, and concertina wires in and around residential colonies, which are making entry and exit precarious? Is this a mark of “normalcy” or captivity? As for “special treatment”, I guess the governor was bang on target. That is precisely what is being inflicted on our fellow citizens in Kashmir...Despite the lack of communication and any possibility of networking, shared suffering has driven Kashmiris to the only logical course left open to them; to offer passive resistance to make themselves visible when there is an attempt to silence them. In a David versus Goliath moment, the people’s schedules for opening and shutting markets, children boycotting schools, people refusing to take risks by venturing out, and at some places strong local opposition to those violating this schedule, have all ensured that civil disobedience holds and the government’s designs are foiled. All the above reasons, most of them of government’s own making, have ensured that conflict and clashes lie ahead. While the death toll is low for now, what will happen once restrictions are lifted is anyone’s guess..""

The myths we spin can haunt us later if we repeat mistakes of the past.

#SisiOut People everywhere want freedom, including Muslims. We look at things like these demonstrations in Egypt, the suffering in Kashmir, the persecution of Uighurs in China and the Rohingya in Burma and think the Muslim world and Muslims want "chaos". That's not true. Just as Americans fought for their freedom, these people are doing so today. More on this here:
