The era of colonialism has not ended. It has only moved into another sphere. While political colonialism has seemingly ended, the aims of colonialism—the aims for which the western countries had colonized the African and Asian 1ands—are very much alive. The same aim which had motivated political colonialism is today the motive of all western conspiracies, in particular American conspiracy.
The African, Arabian and Asian countries were colonized by the western powers to enable them to siphon off the wealth of these lands. The colonial masters were ‘far-sighted. They had realized that the day will come when they will be compelled to relinquish the colonies and hand them over to the local inhabitants. They, therefore, set in motion their well -prepared plot to retain their hold over these territories.
The pivotal base of the plot was the colonization of the minds and hearts of the slaves whom the colonialists had subjugated. The minds of the Arabs, Africans and Asians had to be transformed or westernized so that while the new rulers would be from the local population, the intelligentsia in control of the affairs of the land would be mental slaves of the colonial masters of the West who will pull the strings. The colonialists have undoubtedly achieved a great success in the implementation of their plot. Today all the countries of the so-called third world—Muslim and non-Muslim—are ruled by westernized minds governing on behalf of America, Britain and France.
THE MUSLIM WORLD
The initial stage of the plot to colonize the minds and the hearts of Muslims was to disrupt and dismantle the Islamic system of education (Ta ’leem and Tarbiyat) which the Ummah had inherited from the Salf-e-Saaliheen. The first move for achieving this end was the repression and elimination of the Ulama who always were the Defenders of the Deen. Thousands of ‘Ulama, especially in India (now India, Pakistan and Bangladesh), were massacred. The Madaaris were closed down and the Auqaaf properties confiscated. The growing generations of the Ummah were held in ignorance of their Deen. Then came the final installment in the plot. Western education was thrust onto the populace. The cream of Muslim youth had their minds subverted with kufr and immorality. They were exported to western universities in England and thoroughly groomed and schooled in kufr. Thus came into being a new breed of ‘muslims’ with minds colonized. This breed of pseudo-Muslims returned to rule their lands on behalf of their colonial masters.
THE NEW BREED
This new breed of hybrid ‘muslims’ returned with a hatred for Islam—a hatred for the Sunnah of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam). But they were schooled in western diplomacy which made them adept in the exercise of concealing their kufr and presenting a false facade of nafsaani ‘Islam’ which was appealing the ignorant masses of slaves living in the Muslim lands It was this new breed of kuffaar—westernized Arabs and Asians—born in Muslim homes and educated by kuffaar in kuffaar universities masquerading as Muslims under the subterfuge of Islamic names, who dismantled the Khilaafat and introduced the kaafir system known as democracy. It is by the medium of this system of government that the westernized ‘muslims’—the puppets and slaves of the West—entrenched themselves in the seat of government. The West had thoroughly prepared the stage for their protégés to perpetuate their colonial stranglehold on the lands of the Ummah. We therefore see today that all the countries of Islam barring Afghanistan, are thoroughly under western yoke. They are still ruled by the colonialists who have put up their democratic fronts to impose their kufr and immorality on the ignorant Muslim masses. The corruption of the western protégés—those in government in Muslim lands—suits the plan and plot of the western kuffaar. The policies for government are formulated by the West, sometimes directly by America, Britain or France, and mostly through their agents—United Nations, the World Bank and other similar agencies which are all the creations of the western kuffaar.
Tashabbuh bil kuffaar (Emulating the kuffaar) is the product of colonized minds and hearts. Everything of the kuffaar appear appealing and progressive while the sunnah of Rasulullah (sallallahu alayhi wasallam) is detestable and retrogressive. It has therefore become convenient and expedient for the pseudo Muslims to attribute the Sunnah to the Ulama so as to find plausible grounds for refuting and rejecting it. The masses are misled into believing that the Shariah is the creation of the Ulama while in reality it is the Qur’aan and the Sunnah. But colonized minds and hearts have made people the slaves of the nafs and the slaves of their colonial masters. This disease is deeply embedded in the hearts of Muslims. It is for this reason that they are still under the yoke of colonialism, albeit in different spheres—mental, social and economical. About these westernized puppets parading as Muslims and milking the lands of Islam on behalf of their colonial masters, the Qur’aan Majeed says: “Those who do not govern according to that which Allah has revealed (i.e. His Shariah), verily, they are the kaafiroon.” This is the situation prevailing in all Muslim lands today—all governments besides the government of the Talibaan, are kufr governments.
