Telling the truth should be news – If it happened, it will be here…

Pakistan: Ahmadiyya religious website, AlIslam.org, blocked | Report


“The website only promotes exaltation of One God, the teaching of the Holy Quran, and the teachings of the Holy Funder of Islam, the Holy Prophet Mohammad. Our website is designed primarily for Ahmadi Muslim community, and anyone else who wishes to learn about the Islam Ahmadiyya.”

Ahmadis say the Ahmadiyya website alislam.org “praise the
Holy Prophet Mohammd (saw) like none else.”

The Internet access to the Ahmadiyya Muslim community’s website, alislam.org, has been blocked in Pakistan, a telecom and IT news website in Pakistan has reported.

There are contradictory reports whether the Ahmadiyya website is blocked by Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA), a regulatory body, or by Pakistan Telecommunication Company Limited (PTCL), an individual Internet service provider company.

Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) is known for blocking Internet sites on impulse claiming inappropriate content.

Saleemud Din of the Ahmadiyya community in Pakistan believed it was an action by PTCL, the Internet Service Provider.

“We opened it [Ahmadiyya website ] through WiTribe, BB, Warid on mobile & it worked. Issue w #PTCL only,” @SaleemudDinAA posted on Twitter, a social media and micro-blogging website.

However, according to Pro Pakistani, the IT news website, it is the PTA that ‘has come into action once again.’

PTA “… has blocked a site by the name of alislam.org, Pro Pakistani wrote on its website. “The site was controlled by people of the Ahmaddiya community.”

“According to reports that we are getting so far, the site was accused for blasphemy against the Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H),” Pro Pakistani further wrote.

Azeem Ullah Hassan, who posted the story for Pro Pakistani, wrote that the decision to block the site was announced today, July 5, 2012.

“On opening the website, a message appears telling the user of the blockade along with an email address for complaining.”

The administrators and many other visitors of AlIslam website assert there are no blasphemous contents on the Ahmadiyya website “in any way, shape or form.”

“The website only promotes exaltation of One God, the teaching of the Holy Qura’n, and the teachings of the Holy Founder of Islam, the Holy Prophet Mohammad,” said an Ahmadi Muslim from Pakistan who wishes to remain anonymous. “Our website is designed primarily for Ahmadi Muslim community, and anyone else who wishes to learn about the Islam Ahmadiyya.”

Ahmadis say they promote the true and original teaching of peace and love promoted by Islam.

“Islam is unlike anything these terrorists and extremists promote,” Ahmadis have repeatedly asserted.

“And, yes of course, our website is also devoted to what our community’s founder [Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qādiān, India (1835-1908)] has explained to us about the true, peaceful, and non-extremist teachings of the beautiful faith of Islām,” the Ahmadī Muslim man vehemently stated.

“If PTA or PCTL employ any individuals of extremist agenda, they should be identified and reported as terrorists; and barred from endangering the peaceful world” he added.

Azeem Ullah Hassan has a number of suggestions for PTA that he added in his post at Pro Pakistani website.

Hasan believes that PTA should publish the list of blocked websites, detailing if block is temporary or permanent and also specify the reasons for blocking a website.

 “We are likely to see outrage on this decision of PTA,” Azeem Ullah Hassan wrote.  “[It] could be avoided if authority had detailed down the reasons for ban, any particular pages that were blasphemous or any content it had deemed inappropriate.”

Ever since the ban, Twitter is buzzing with enormous outrage, not just by the Ahmadis members, but also from all progressive and liberal corners in blogosphere.

Yet, there were few haters too who opted to carry on their extremist commentary in their Twitter posts.

One Ms. Marium ‏from Karachi (@MsMarium) – who appears to be in the Pakistan Tehrik-e Insaf (PTI) and its chairman, Imran Khan’s corner – had some sort of religio-political bone to pick.

Ms Marium started with her announcement, thanking authorities for the ban.

“Strongly appreciating the blockage of http://alislam.org – Thank You PTCL! #Ahmadiyya,” wrote Ms Marium and later followed up with a correction. “In my previous tweet – I thanked to PTCL mistakenly  …its was [sic] PTA :) #Ahmaddiya.”

And, then came her real bone of contention causing her to wish Ahmadis to ‘rot in hell.’

To Ms Mariam, it seems, not supporting Imran Khan equates to supporting the current Pakistani President, Asif Ali Zardari.

“Qadiani’s prefer Zardari over Imran Khan  … tht is how they show their mentality by supporting the cursed one,” Ms Marium wrote in one of her Twitter post. “Pity on those Qadiani’s who are making fun of Shah Ahmed Noorani and Maulana Tariq Jameel. #MayYouAllRottenInHell.”

Ms Mariam – who ‘dreams of being a writer’ – ended her thought saying, “Extremist kehlo. Hon, phir? [Call me an extremist. I’m. So..?].
