Ishtiaq Ahmed – the “novelist” hatemonger

By Yasser Latif Hamdani

IMG_20151119_160553

Two days ago Ishtiaq Ahmed, the novelist who once attempted unsuccessfully to get his name registered in Guinness Book of World Records for being the most prolific author, passed away. Since then my Facebook and Twitter timelines are full of eulogies, praise and admiration for his work.  Hence record must be set straight even though there is no controversy in death:   Ishtiaq Ahmed was a foulmouthed bigoted fanatic who abused and attacked Shias, Ahmadis and Christians in his novels. I am reproducing some of his “detective literature”.  For those of you who can read Urdu can appreciate the real intent behind the filth and garbage he wrote.  For those who can’t read Urdu, you should count your lucky stars but I will give the broad contours of his novel “Wadi-e-Marjan” in which the protagonist “Inspector Jamshaid” – the hero with near super hero powers- takes on the evil residents of a valley along with his family.  Essentially the evil residents – supposed to be Ahmadis- are building up a super secret Army to take over the country from their valley and convert forcibly the people of the country to their faith.  You get the picture.

Here are some nuggets from the author

“Shiaism was a Jewish Conspiracy!”  – Source editorial in “Bachon Ka Islam” or “Islam for Kids”

CUHvK5jUkAAiSdG

“Ahmadis are actually Jews and they work for Israel.”   In this piece Inspector Jamshaid the great detective and our equivalent of Sherlock Holmes determines the guilt of two employees by establishing that they are a Christian and a “Qadiani”.  “Christians are in any event enemies of Muslims and “Qadianis” are actually Jews because they work for them in the Israeli Army.”

Ahmadism was a religious conspiracy by the Jews against Islam. Source “Wadi-e-Marjan”.

These are only a few of the selected nuggets I randomly chose from his works.  His books, writings, and articles are full of such hate and abuse against minorities in Pakistan.  It qualifies as hate material and far from having our kids exposed to such nonsense, it is about time the government BANNED his books under the National Action Plan.

    Yasser, Jo chala gaya usey bhool ja. Raking up his bad stuff just keeps such stuff going.

  • waqar

    His writings reflected the widespread views – little doubt that he was read by thousands, if not more, for the sheer joy that his writings provided and their true ability to capture the minds of the reader. A legend indeed of pakistani literature, though an imperfection person, like all of us are in different ways.

    Why did he not insult Hindus?

  • Kamath.

    Novelists, poets, playwrights, writers of all kind, musicians, composers, dancers, artistes etc are the ones who carry on the heritage of a nation. These are the intellectuals – heart beat of the society. Lowering the quality of their worksf to depths of hate momgering to humanity is so unfortunate. But then, censorship is a very blunt instrument and if used can harm the society too! What an irony here!

  • dunkirk

    This 7th century arab religion has a natural tendency to be totalitarian and fascistic. And no one can stop that or reverse that.

    So long muslims (and their timidized “friends”) somehow try to defend/praise it it will keep becoming more fascistic. But there is a compulsion upon muslims to do this praise and shrieks of self-glorification.

    Genuine God will bring this religion/ideology to a deserved ignominous end soon. He has to wait till certain boundaries of deceit and violence are crossed in the name of this ideology and by its bosses and followers.

    One wonders why Genuine God is so patient.

    “Why did he not insult Hindus?”

    So the gentleman didn’t have much use for Shias, Christians, or Ahmadis. Probably, he nursed a soft corner for Hindus.

  • yasserlatifhamdani

    Actually some of his work is also dedicated to anti-India stuff … though I must admit I don’t remember anything particularly anti-Hindu … his ire however was for Christians, Jews, Shias and Ahmadis.

  • tajender

    his ire however was for Christians, Jews, Shias and Ahmadis.

    all above were helping britisshers to loot and destroy india in general and muslims in particular.

    their propaganda has created fools like tareq fatah.we should join hands together to build nation.
    modiji also said the same yesterday.

  • Mr.Yasser Quran main saaf likha hai ”Yahood o Nasara tumhare dost nahi” to dear Ek Musalman ka farz nahi ke woh un ki sazishon se parda uthaye…year 2015 media ki fastest negative coverage humarey childs pe kia asar dalti hai kabhi AAP ne usey tanqeed ka nishana banaya, ya kabhi Govt of Pakistan se ic pe Banned ki apeal ki…. i hope kabhi nahi…

    “Why did he not insult Hindus
    muslims and hindus are same .whatthese groups are doing to muslims ,rss is doing to them at much bigger scale.

    if any objection kaal tell.

  • kaalchakra

    YLH, he seems to be someone who came to religious zealotry later in life – by then his enemies had changed. Ahmadis, understandably, evoke the greatest passion.

    ——————–

    Brother tajender, Ishtiaq Ahmed – the novelist reminded me of you – although you, like Masadi saheb, probably found wisdom much earlier in life than Mr Ahmed did.

  • first of all yasser tum abhi bachey ho… religion ke baarey main baat karney se pehly Islam ko aisey samjho jese aj kal Gorey samajh rahe hain :p Ishtiaq sahab 43 years se yeh naik kaam kar rahe hain aur apki total age bhi 43 nahi hogi 🙂

    Yasser Pai,

    though I must admit I don’t remember anything particularly anti-Hindu …
    .
    I suspect this is also true for many of his kind such as Mufti Mehmood, Fazlur Rehman etc. In all likelihood, it wud arise from their affection for their ideological guru gandhooji.
    .
    Regards

  • kaalchakra

    Most of these gentlemen had no affection for gandhooji. What they had was utter contempt for the man (and much worse for Nehru). In comparison to Christians, Shias, and Ahmadis, Hindus, in their eyes, were just far too stupid and far too effete to present – as a community – any hindrances. Whatever he thought of India as a whole, Mr Ishtiaq Ahmed might not have wanted to waste his ink on Hindus when he could address himself to real enemies that mattered. 🙂

  • Majumdar

    Kaal bhai,
    .
    I think you have a point. Post 1947, Paki Muslims had little to fear from Hindoos.
    .
    Masadi sb,
    .
    The reason why Christians and Mirzais are part of that suspicion has historical roots, ….. Regarding Jews, the suspicion is because of their historical role not only in trying to destory Islam but plotting to kill Jesus and in contemporary times, Palestine.
    .
    Good point as usual. But what about Shias?
    .
    Regards

  • tajender

    Good point as usual. But what about Shias

    just read history.noorjahan was first shia of india.correct if i am wrong.tipu was destroyed by them so the asifuddaula of bengal.britishers used to call them fool.

  • Majumdar

    Masadi sb,
    .
    When did our beloved Qaid pit mainstream Muslim groups against each other?
    .
    Regards

  • kaalchakra

    “Shia and Sunni have political but not theological differences of substance, and the shia are not pushing the pro West butcher the Muslims under a GWOT agenda, like these Mirzai shits here.”

    This is nothing but pure hatred against Ahmadis. Theological differences between Shias and Sunnis are substantial and unbridgeable, and the two groups have been killing each other for far longer than what Jinnah could be blamed for. In practice, the single most important difference between the two groups is the role of the Imam.

  • Majumdar

    Perhaps Yasser Pai can shed some light on whether Shias and Sunnis have greater theological differences or Mirzais and regular Muslims. I believe he had written on this some years back here.

    YLH writes……

    It is not always proper to talk against the dead nor prudent to crticise the talented intellectual writers but if he was the father of living Salman Rushdie and tried to include all facets of the Ibrahimic religions in his clientail then I say ‘good riddance’ of such intellectualrs who entertain the shabby and dark instincts of a certain section of the society at a given time in history.

    He could not have criticised Hindus since the name itself symbolises specific cultural features of the natives of the region.

    Well… whatever he wrote, he is gone forever.

    it was his point of view (actually true) and who the hell are you to call him foulmouthed … you should keep a broad vision and represent tolerance or all your broad vision and tolerance are for anti islam forces

    My fear is that Septic tank mian might get a PhD soon and soon your exclusivity to a doctorate, for which you are held in some veneration here, might vanish.

    RHR,

    You are not an Ahmedi Sir because they are a sect within Islam. You have no affiliation with the religion of Islam since you have joined the ranks of collaborators who are indoctrinated at home to serve the interests of the colonialists and Imperialists. You very much wish that the colonialists return to your country and protect you from your own people, failing which you would asylum in an anglo saxon environment.

    CM Bhai,
    Today was the “Garv se Moment” for all biharis and you… lalu yadavs 9th pass ( 10th fail ) son took two attempts to take oath.. Commies and upper caste liberals are proud…
    Despite political differences a large section of Indians today pity biharis ofr the choice… This is not an attempt to denigrate bihar but actual denigration of bihar …
    After securing their estate in bihar and roji roti , the liberal upper caste has managed to push people to choose an illiterate , incompetent youngster from OBC to keep them engaged in caste and religious nonsense in the name of bihari culture ..
    Sorry biharis.. next time please donot blame marathis and kannadigas for throwing you out of their states.. and mistreating you… you are asking for it..

  • hellfire

    masadi, your extreme bitterness is due to the fact that you are incapable of interacting with fellow humans. hose who have had half a century of education for the most part are willing and able to not only interact but also have ability to see all sodes or situations. You are stuck at age 10 or 11…a very angry age 10 or 11 in my estimation and this is why you are unemployed and friendless. while your findest hooe is to teach in “kkka”, it will never happen due to your mental illness. get yourself into treatment. the. you may have a chance at pursuit of your dream job in this great cou try.

  • hellfire

    hahaha! dude, the one who claims to hold a PhD but cannot write anything without profanity laced insults worthy of a 6th grader! sorry, i take that back…I meant 5th grader.

    So basically you have decided to exclude me out of the fold of Islam 😀

  • RHR

    By the way, you have still not told me as to what you smoke? I mean the lunacy which I witness from you is way above anything else!

  • RHR

    Guys the only person more lunatic than Rex is Masadi. I mean this guy has virtually no self respect. Despite the fact that he calls this website a small website which no one visits, he visits it the most number of time. He claims that no one sees it and yet he is desperate to comment here. I mean why comment here if it is so unimportant. Despite the fact that no one wants him, he keeps on commenting.
    A 45 year old guy, acting like a desperate immature kid
    Immature to the core and of course hopelessly ordinary looking. Even ugly is better but being so nondescript is real bad luck.

    Now I can guarantee you that he will entertain all of you with his monkey mujra after he sees this comment.

    It is difficult for him to resist. Pitiable nondescript dwarf

  • RHR

    Before I mass delete this nondescript immature desperate dwarf, let me reiterate, I am not an Ahmedi though I do support their right to call themselves Muslim.

  • hellfire

    You have my sympathies sir in having to deal with this monkey on your back. Zhe is obviously in need of psychiatric intervention which I have suggested and offered to him in every way possible way but, as is the case with the majority of psychiatric patients, he continues to insist that “everyone else is wrong” and he is right. his condition continues to escalate and degrade. sad thatthere is no one, not a friend or a relative in the world, who can intervene and help.

  • RHR

    Hellfire

    Actually we all know him since at least 2006. He was a mad guy back then also and a butt of the jokes. But now he has lost the remaining bits of sanity as well.
