No to 'Muslim only' villages, says ASJA

By PHOOLO DANNY-MAHARAJ South Bureau

Tuesday, July 20th 2004

The Anjuman Sunaat-ul- Jamaat Association (ASJA) is against the establishment of Muslim villages in Trinidad and Tobago.

"I cannot support and ASJA will not support Muslim villages in a multi-plural, multi-cultural, multi-ethnic society such as the one in which we live," Yacoob Ali, ASJA president general, said.

He said Muslim villages in this society "can only be divisive and we are not for separation." Ali said ASJA, the country's largest Muslim organisation, believes in living and surviving in mainstream society "and we will continue to do so".

Such moves, he stressed, could not augur well for this society. "We are for integrating society, but we cannot pass judgment on the rest of society to say they are sinners," he said.

Muslim villages are not a medium for the preservation of Islam, he said, adding that "we cannot create a society within a society in this country and it should not be allowed".

He was referring to statements by Maulana Imran N Hosein on the establishment of Muslim villages in Trinidad and Tobago, during a lecture at the San Fernando Technical Institute on Sunday.

These villages, he said, would be free of alcohol, murder, homosexuality, children born out of wedlock and houses would not have toilets in them because toilets were considered unclean places. The lecture was organised by the San Fernando Jama Masjid.

Earlier this year ASJA accused Hosein of promoting "terrorist type ideologies" and described him as a "strong security risk".

Hosein found support for his idea from members of his audience.

Maulana Siddiq Ahmad Nasir, who spoke at the lecture about the spiritual dynamism of such a situation, said he experienced the life in two such villages in Pakistan. In such an environment, he said "no one smoked, or played music loudly." He described his experience as "exhilarating" but stressed that such villages cannot be established overnight as serious planning must go into them.

"He said there would be no mansions and since toilets were considered unclean places, buildings in the village will have no toilets. "

Hey, watch it, you forgot that Islam is a "religion of peace and tolerance".
Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha - thousands of dead Jews and Americans can attest to the fact that Islam is a religion of evil, death, and totalitarian intolerance.

"Speaking of the plan yesterday Maulana Imran Hosein said it was born of the need to protect and preserve Islam from the ills of society such as alcohol, fornication, adultery, illegitimate children, homosexuality, lesbianism and murders."

"He said non-Muslims who visit the village will not be able to "walk with a bottle of beer or walk half-naked down the streets ." He said that "non-Muslims will be welcome to live with us in the village in the way they liven in the past."

With a little more compasion, it works for me..................

I think it's a good idea. Name it Fallujah. Anytime there's any trouble on Infidel Island, drop a laser-guided bomb on Fallujah. No Trinidadians get hurt. Problem solved.

Of course. Why settle for a couple of measly villages when your real goal is to take over the whole enchilada?

The only time you see people walking half naked with beer is during Carnaval. Other than that, what they really want to turn the whole country into a militant muslim stronghold where instead of a business suit, one wears a burqua.

Should the SHTF, this would expedite quarantine or extermination.

"the Muslim village would transcend the politics of race to seek to establish and sustain healing the balm of a racial fraternity"

Not certain I understand the comment, but even with my limited understanding it rings a little hollow. Racial fraternity doesn't sound exactly like what the Arabs (Janjaweed) have been doing in Darfur and much of North Africa and the rest of the world. Oh well, maybe they're just heavy into the hazing part of fraternity.

Yep. Precisely why I no longer travel [and therefore spend my money] outside the US, not even to the little socialist-lite enclaves we call the Caribbean Islands. I'm just fine with the scenery here in our 50 states.

oh wow, okay, so everywhere else in the world we're REQUIRED to show tolerance, if not acceptance of Muslim beliefs, in order to NOT be called a racist, but they want FULL segregation to keep them "pure"?? oh PULEASE.
I've seen it all now.

Trinidad is one of the beautiful islands on the earth, and hardly socialist. It is a parliment democracy similar to England. Cuba, it's definately not.

It's a joke. They really want to set up a Bakr-style madrassa. Trinidad has the largest pitch lake in the world which means $$$$$$ for their terrorism if only they could get enough of their people in government. I'll not go into why Klintoon sent Cajun Crab down there while he was in office. That's another thread.
