There is an interesting post on Facebook page 'Secular Pakistan'.
It’s a colourful invitation by Jamiatur Rasheed, a Deobandi madrasa in Karachi, asking Muslims to register for a programme at its campus in the ongoing holy month of Ramzan, which includes a presentation on Ghazwa-e-Hind (final Islamic battle for India).
The notice can also be found on The Picta (online Instagram posts viewer) where it has been posted by Majlis-e-Ilmi Society which is one of the institutions of Jamiatur Rasheed-Karachi.
The Davanagari transcript of this notice is given at the bottom of this article.
The notice calls upon Muslims to register for 'Itikaaf' -- an Islamic practice of staying in a mosque for a certain number of days and devoting oneself to ibaadat and learning -- at Jamiatur Rasheed; the registrations closed on Sunday, June 11.
The charge (including boarding and lodging) for the 'Itikaaf' at Jamiatur Rasheed, including a presentation on Ghazwa-e-Hind as well as classes on blessings and jurisprudential issues of waging Jihad, is Rs 2500.
The invitation also cites free Wi-Fi at the campus.
A person seeking registration was required to bring a surety of a ‘reliable personage’, a photo copy of his ID card, and two photographs.
Jamiatur Rasheed, which claims to provide free Islamic education to its regular students and boasts a computer lab and a swimming pool, publishes four magazines on Islam, including a children's weekly in English called 'The Truth International'.
According to the Wikipedia, "Ghazwa-e-Hind or the final battle of India is an Islamic term mentioned in some "good" Hadiths in particular predicting a final and last battle in India and as a result, a conquest of the whole Indian sub-continent by Muslim warriors."
One of the recent video posts is titled (in Urdu) 'Why Killing and Massacring If Islam is a Religion of Peace and Prophet is Rehmat-ul-Aalmeen (provider of mercy to the whole world)?'
The video features a young mullah explaining in Urdu Hikmat-e-Qitaal in Islam (wisdom of killing and massacring in Islam).
He begins thus: "Kafirs raise many questions about Jihad and Qitaal (killing). It's also asked that if the Prophet is Rehmat-ul-Aalmeen and Islam is a religion of peace, then why killing and massacring?
"Listeners, the answer is: a doctor can never be an expert in his field if he knows how to apply liniment to relieve pain but doesn't know how to operate a diseased organ.
"So when the world developed the virus of Kufr (falsehood) and Shirk (tendency to include others in what should be the exclusively venerable status of one and one Allah), Allah the merciful sent the doctor in the shape of the Prophet who for 23 years treated all the diseased parts of the body.
"However, there remained parts that were bad enough to be beyond treatment. So the wisdom demanded that those parts be cut off the body. That is the reality of Jihad and that is the purpose of Jihad."
The young Mullah then goes on to explain "four most important rationales for killing and massacring out of the many that the Prophet favoured in his wisdom", including "killing for putting an end to all discord".
"Allah the great said fight to kill those who don't conform and those who cause discord because (such a) war is the guarantee for preserving peace."
