India: Influential Muslim Scholar Offers To Raise “Powerful Global Islamic Army” Of 500,000 Jihadists For Caliphate


Not necessarily for the ISIS Caliphate in Syria-Iraq, but for a Saudi-created Caliphate. But what if the Saudis, instead of creating their own, decided to support — either willingly or by force — the ISIS Caliphate instead? Or what if the Saudi’s simply declined Navdi’s generous offer? Either way, I’m sure al-Baghdadi, leader of the ISIS Caliphate, would be more than happy to take him up on it, something that Navdi would certainly consider given the fact that he has already “sent fawning greetings to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi” and even desires to see all Islamic terrorist organizations around the world unite as one global “Islamic Army.” Granted, this may get nowhere, but the fact that it’s even being seriously discussed speaks volumes regarding the degree to which such a virulent Islamist mentality has now metastasized throughout the Muslim world. And this should be a pressing concern for the rest of us …

Psalm 140:8, “Do not grant the wicked their desires, LORD; do not let their plans succeed.”

By Hasan Suroor, FirstPost – “I’m not sure if the name Maulana Syed Salman Hussaini Nadvi will ring a bell in many places. My own first reaction when I heard it was ‘Nadvi, who?’

But apparently he is a big cheese in Islamic circles. An influential theologian and author of numerous scholarly tomes in Urdu and Arabic, Nadvi is Dean of the Faculty of Shariah at Darul Uloom Nadwa, Lucknow, whose reputation as a premier institution of Islamic teaching ranks in the same class as Darul Uloom, Deoband. He is also a member of the All-India Muslim Personal Law Board and Aligarh Muslim University’s court, its highest decision-making body.

So, what he says matters and carries weight. It is important to stress this because what he has done has shocked even conservative Muslims. Nadvi has written a long and passionate letter (in Arabic!) to the Saudi government offering to raise a militia of 500,000 Sunni Muslim Indian youth as his contribution to a ‘powerful global Islamic army’ he has proposed in order to fight Shia militants in Iraq and ‘help Muslims in need’ elsewhere. The army would become part of a Caliphate that he wants Saudis to set up for the Muslim ummah, the international Muslim community.

He also suggested that terrorists should not be referred to as terrorists as they were engaged in a ‘noble cause’ and called for a ‘confederation’ of all jihadi organisations so that they could transform themselves into a single ‘powerful global force’.

Earlier, Nadvi sent fawning greetings to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, leader of the notorious Sunni militant group Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and self-appointed caliph of a sharia administration he has set up along Iraq-Syria border.

Nadvi is the only Asian theologian of to have recognised Bagdhadi’s ‘Caliphate’. But it is his offer of raising an Indian Muslim militia to fight on foreign lands which has caused a stir even in the normally complacent Muslim quarters as it comes amid mounting concern over the increasing radicalisation of young Indian Muslims who had far defied the global Islamisation trend.

Reports that four educated middle class Mumbai Muslim boys (two engineering students, one medical student, and a call centre worker) have fled the country to join jihadisfighting a vicious sectarian war in Iraq and Syria have deepened concerns about home-grown Muslim extremism and put the entire community under the scanner.” Read more.

    Muslims who want to war are like disgruntled bored devils having nothing better to do than kill and be killed. Not good material for God’s kingdom.
