Qatari-funded terror broadcast network Al Jazeera says, “Ramadan is the month of jihad and victories in the Islamic history”.
Back in June 2018, Maulana Bashir Ahmad Khaki, a senior member of Jamaat-ud-Dawa, a notorious jihadist outfit that led by 2008 Mumbai terror attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed, speaking from a public platform about assassinating Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said, “Flag of Islam will be hoisted in India and America. [Prime Minister] Modi will be killed. India and Israel will get disintegrated as more and more martyrs will be produced”.
Maulana Bashir reportedly instigated the listeners to wage a Jihad (holy war) during Ramzan. He said, “Ramadan is the pious month of ‘Jihad-o-Qital’ (Jihad and killing). Those who attain martyrdom while waging Jihad, doors of heaven remain open.” Asking the people in PoK to allow their boys to join the Jihad, he said, “JuD cadres are still waging Jihad in Kashmir and fighting with Indian forces in Kashmir. They are waging Jihad for freedom of Kashmir and destruction of India.” He also sought donations to further the ’cause’ of JuD and said, “I appeal (to) the participants to donate generously (wheat, ration and cash) during the month of Ramadan to the JuD and for the mujahideen waging Jihad. I also urge women to donate their sons and cash for mujahideen who are waging Jihad in Kashmir.”
One of the articles published on the website of the Qatari Al-Jazeera network on the occasion of Ramadan is headlined “How the Palestinian Resistance Turned Ramadan into the Season of Attacks and Victories.” Written by ‘Adnan Abu ‘Amer, a Palestinian Political Science lecturer at Al-Ummah University in Gaza, the article notes that, throughout Muslim history, Ramadan has always been the month of jihad and victory, and that the Palestinian terror organizations “take advantage of the spiritual atmosphere” during this month, and of the heritage of the Muslims battles and victories that took place during this month throughout Muslim history, to step up their jihad against Israeli targets.
Abu ‘Amer lists a long line of deadly attacks by the Palestinian terror organizations – against both soldiers and civilians, including suicide bombings – that were deliberately carried out during Ramadan due to the month’s special character. He also mentions the Israel-Gaza war of July 2014, which likewise coincided with Ramadan, and which he says serves as a model for resistance groups to this day because it included “the most prominent acts of heroism by the resistance in the history of Palestine and the conflict with the occupation.” He adds that the Israeli security apparatuses are aware that, on Ramadan, the Palestinian organizations are especially motivated to carry out attacks and therefore prepare for it in advance.
