BAHAWALPUR / FAISALABAD: A 10-year-old student at a seminary was brutally beaten up by his teacher on Thursday, Tandlianwala police said.
The boy was taken to the tehsil headquarters hospital, where doctors treating him later said that he was out of danger. A case was registered by the police with one of the boy’s relatives as the complainant.
Police said Muhammad Abdullah, a teacher at a seminary in Mumtazabad Colony, beat up Abu Zar Ghafari with a stick for not learning his lesson.
Complainant Muhammad Naveed said that Ghafari was an orphan. He said after his father’s death five years ago, he had enrolled Ghafari at the seminary. On Thursday, Naveed said, he was informed that Ghafari had fainted at the school. He said when he went there, he discovered that his teacher had beaten him up with a stick.
He said some of the boy’s class fellows told him that the teachers slapped him first. He had then dragged him by the hair to a corner and beaten him with a stick until he fainted.
He said he took the boy to the THQ hospital, where doctors treating him said that he had probably fainted from fear. They said there were bruises on his back and legs.
He said while the police had registered his complaint, they were reluctant to arrest Abdullah as an influential group in the area that funded the seminary was protecting him.
Naveed said shortly after he filed the complaint, some men had arrived at his house and threatened him with dire consequences if he did not withdraw the complaint.
The Tandlianwala station house officer said that police were looking for Abdullah. He said a police team had raided his house, but had not found him there. The SHO denied any pressure and said that the matter was being dealt with transparently.

Firebrand Lebanese Sunni cleric Ahmed al-Assir has turned his mosque into a military base, exclusive Al Arabiya footage shows.
The Lebanese army took control of Abra, an area which is home to the Bilal bin Rabah mosque where Assir leads Friday prayers, after fighting on Monday that killed 17 soldiers and 50 Assir loyalists in the southern city of Sidon, a Lebanese military source said.
The footage shows the mosque was used to store weapons and ammunition, including hidden stashes discovered by the army.
Barrels filled with sand placed at the entrance of the mosque and around its circumference made it look like a military barricade.
The whereabouts of the cleric are unknown.
“The battle has ended after the army took full control over the area and after the escape of” Assir, a military source told Al Arabiya.
Meanwhile, military sources told Al Arabiya on Tuesday that about 110 Assir loyalists were arrested. The military is also combing areas that his followers are known to frequent.
editorial footnote: The word “mosque” means fortress. Historically speaking, mosques and majids have been utilized as storage facilities for everything from, small arms and ammunitions to missiles, chemical weapons and weapons of mass destruction. Mosques are often used as bases of operations for Islamic Jihadists to attack surrounding communities when the order comes down from above. Traditionally, mosques have been used for this purpose for many reasons although in Western nations such as the U.K., Canada, the U.S. and Australia there is an added element. Utilizing the mosque as an armory for weapons storage allows the Islamic community a method of circumventing host nation laws and provides a degree of separation and autonomy between the muslims in the community and the weapons being stored.
Additionally, mosques, majids and Islamic centers in recent history have fabricated a notion that “non-muslims” are not to come on the property of a mosque. That somehow, this is considered a desecration and show of disrespect. That is a complete false-hood that was created simply to keep Western military personnel from entering and seizing their weapon stockpiles. There is absolutely no mention in al-qur’an of any such rule. Western governments tend to make many mistakes in their efforts to cater to the Islamic communities in their Western nations. One of the gravest mistakes they are making is affording mosques, madrassas, majids and Islamic centers a form of “Diplomatic Immunity.” This will one day come back to haunt the citizen’s of Western nations.
Furthermore, mosques are currently reinforcing their structures and upgrading their security systems in the West today. They are using the excuse that they fear vandalism in order to carry out this fortification process. In reality it is a preparation for future defensive security for their offensive operations. So, it should be known ahead of time that governments and politicians are placing their citizens in a position of grave danger. And, for what reason? They do not want to offend the muslims. They do not want to hurt their feelings. They do not want to appear as intolerant. They do not want to damage their public image because this could negatively impact their future political aspirations. Instead, they choose to sacrifice public safety and security. s/m
The Muslims are coming… the Muslims are coming!
One if by land and two if by sea.
Okay.. it probably won’t be by land.. but, they are coming!

The Obama administration is considering resettling some refugees who have escaped war-torn Syria in the United States, a development first reported by the Los Angeles Times on Sunday and later confirmed by the State Department.
According to the Times, the resettlement of the refugees would be “part of an international effort that could bring thousands of Syrians to American cities and towns.”
The Times reports [emphasis added]:
A resettlement plan under discussion in Washington and other capitals is aimed at relieving pressure on Middle Eastern countries straining to support 1.6 million refugees, as well as assisting hard-hit Syrian families.
The State Department is “ready to consider the idea,” an official from the department said, if the administration receives a formal request from the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Refugees, which is the usual procedure.
The United States usually accepts about half the refugees that the U.N. agency proposes for resettlement. California has historically taken the largest share, but Illinois, Florida,Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia are also popular destinations.
UN, government and non-governmental representatives are meeting this week in Geneva to discuss the resettlement options, according to the Times.
State Department Spokeswoman Jen Psaki was asked for details about the resettlement plan at the department’s Monday briefing.
“Well, let me first say the preferred solution for the vast majority of refugees is to return home once it is safe. We are in close contact with the UN on the need for resettlement of refugees from countries of first asylum throughout the world,” Psaki said.
“The United States accepts more UN-referred refugees than all other countries combined, and we are aware, and we would – and the UN is aware that the U.S. would consider any individuals referred to us to have been determined to be in need of resettlement. So we are prepared to respond if asked, and will encourage other resettlement countries to do the same,” she added.
While she wouldn’t specify the number of Syrian refugees the U.S. would be willing to resettle, she explained that Congress caps the number of refugees at 70,000 in total.
“So the way it would work would be if a specific country is added to the list of refugees where we would accept their refugees, which the U.S. is certainly open to – but let me just reiterate that the preferred solution for the vast majority is to return to their country once it’s safe,” Psaki said.
The UN’s refugee agency UNHCR on Tuesday said it was talking to Germany about resettling up to 10,000 Syrian refugees.
Though the refugee problem is a serious humanitarian issue – with most having fled to neighboring Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey – moving some of them to the U.S. would create challenges. First, how to vet applicants from a country where so many jihadi and al Qaeda activists are present. Secondly, would the lure of possible entry to the U.S. encourage other Syrians to leave their country, further straining their neighbors’ generosity and resources?
As the L.A. Times reports, “Two resettled Iraqis were convicted of trying to send arms to Al Qaeda from their home in Bowling Green, Ky.”
The paper describes political challenges as well:
Congress strongly resisted accepting Iraqi refugees, including interpreters who had worked with U.S. forces, after the 2003 U.S.-led invasion. Most lawmakers share White House caution about getting more engaged in Syria and may have little appetite for a major influx.
But Susan Rice, President Obama’s new national security advisor, and Samantha Power, Obama’s nominee for U.S. ambassador to the U.N., both have been strong advocates for refugees. They may make the White House more receptive to at least a partial opening.
The L.A. Times points out that the Department of Homeland Security requires “careful vetting of refugees, with multiple interviews and background checks before they are allowed to enter the country.” That process, “under normal circumstances,” can take a year or more.
editorial footnote: If you are thinking to yourself.. “hmm.. I wonder if this will happen?” ..allow me to put your mind to rest.. YES! It is going to happen. This has been part of Obama’s plan from the beginning and if you doubt that for a second.. than please read and watch all of the videos in the articles at the two links above this message. Obama was “ushered in” for this purpose. That being, the goal of making America a muslim nation by 2016. Do you really think he would take a chance on leaving office at the end of his last term and not leaving behind a Muslim America?
Futhermore, just in case you have not put all of the pieces together yet.. Do you realize that Obama initiated the war in Syria and has been the primary financial contributor to the war that created the situation of bringing a large number of muslim refugees here? Do you believe that is just a coincidence? Be prepared for Turkey, Egypt and the Palestinian Region to follow the same path, in the not so distant future, yielding the same results.
