    Drawing parallels between Jamaat-e-Islami and Muslim Brotherhood

    July 18, 2012


    KARACHI:

    The Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) maintains close ties with the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, a religious party which has recently found its voice again in mainstream Egyptian politics, and a group that the JI claims it has a lot to learn from.

    In a sign of budding relations, when Muslim Brotherhood member Mohamed Mursi was declared the first president of Egypt since a popular uprising ousted Hosni Mubarak, a special ceremony was held in Karachi by JIs local chapter.

    Congratulations to Ikhwane Muslameen (Egyptian Brotherhood) on their glorious success. The sacrifices of the martyrs Imam Hasan al Banna, Syed Qutb and thousands of activists have borne fruit in the shape of the revolution in Egypt. God willing, an Islamic revolution is Pakistans destiny too, said a JI leader at the event.

    Brotherly relations

    When asked about the burgeoning relationship, senior JI leader Liaquat Baloch said, Its true that the politics and conditions of each country are different. However, as Muslims one enjoys a special brotherly bond with other Muslims and it is on this basis that we have maintained ties with the Brotherhood.

    The senior Jamaat leader said the relationship was based on a purely ideological level, adding that the JI would not be taking any dictation from the Brotherhood. Baloch said his partys recent visit to Cairo opened up a new chapter in relations, but emphasised that the ties had been maintained for decades.

    Sharing scholars

    JI Karachi president Muhammad Hussain Mehanti said the Brotherhood has been a source of inspiration and it is in this spirit that the Idara-e Noor-e-Haq translates the works of their scholars Hasan al Banna and Syed Qutub in Pakistan. Baloch said the works of JIs founder and revered scholar Maulana Maududi are also translated in Egypt.

    Drawing parallels

    Historian and author of Partisans of Allah: Jihad in South Asia Professor Ayesha Jalal said, The Jamaat-i-Islami and the Muslim Brotherhood have been historically linked ideologically and have also had comparable social bases of support.

    If you add to this some broad similarities of context, most notably state authoritarianism, then the links between the two organisations become even more understandable. So it is hardly surprising to find them expressing admiration for each other.

    Meanwhile, international best-selling author Ahmed Rashid said the Jamaat-e-Islami branched out of the Muslim Brotherhood, which was founded in 1929 by Hasan al Banna, who spearheaded a movement that spread across the Arab world.

    Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah. And those who are with him are severe against disbelievers, and merciful among themselves.

    Yes they have the same ideology. I recently had a discussion with the leader of JI in my district, and he told me that the Erdogan's government is a good model for them to follow if they ever get in power.

    He also said that the government of Rabbani and Massoud was a true Islamic government, and Benazir Bhutto was scared that it would eventually come to Pakistan so she created the Taliban in order cause chaos in Afghanistan.

    Thats Ikhwanism. If you are somehow affiliated to some Ikhwani outfit, no matter what you do, you are free from any criticism and always doing the right thing. But if you are not an Ikhwani, then you are bad bad bad.
