Since I have to do a lot of YouTube uploads as part of my volunteer work, my Internet connection was getting choked causing problem for other work (email, ftp, etc.). Thanks to Mac OS X built-in ipfw I can limit uplink connection based on services, destination ports or IPs! This is just a quick test to limit the uplink for web uploads to 200KB/sec.
ipfw pipe 10 config bw 200KByte/s
ipfw queue 75 config pipe 10 weight 75
ipfw add 100 queue 75 ip from me to any dst-port 80,443

There is no shortage of murtadeen (reverts) in Islam. Those who leave Ahmadiyya Muslim Community are only going back to the darkness. Ahmadiyyat teaches us to be true Muslim by following the teachings of Holy Quran and Holy Prophet Muhammad(saw) in our lives. What do Mullahs teach? Show me the light and I’ll follow. The light of this age is Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani(as) The Promised Messiah and Mahdi. The one who cuts his ties with him will fall into darkness.

Someone asked on this blog that old Jesus(as) can still come back, to which I replied that why do you reject the verses of the Holy Quran that prove he died like all other prophets and he cannot be alive in the skies and I gave this link that prove conclusively from the Holy Quran that Jesus(as) cannot be alive since 2000 years. I also gave this link that lists the past scholars of Islam that agree on the natural death of Jesus(as). Instead of reading it and discussing the fine points, the gentleman replied: “first of all i dunt consider u guys to be muslims….since u dunt believe in khatm e nabuwwat….”
You can see who loves Holy Quran
Here is my reply:
- We are not asking for your opinion if you consider someone Muslim or not. God will not judge anyone by what you think. However He will judge you according to His teachings that we find in Holy Quran and Hadith.
- Ahmadi Muslims believe in Khatam-e-Nabuwwat exactly like Holy Prophet(saw) was Khatam-un-Nabiyeen. And not how you think he should be. Again you are not the authority on the subject, the authority is Holy Quran and Hadith.
So get this misconception out of the way that Ahmadis do not believe in Khatam-e-Nabuwwat. It is the other way around. You are the ones who do not believe Holy Prophet(saw) to be Khatam-un-Nabiyeen. Instead you believe Jesus(as) to be last prophet on earth.
Now if you have a few minutes please spend them in reading Holy Quran and the verses I quoted that prove that old prophet Jesus who was a prophet for Bani Israel only, and died like all other past prophets. Stop throwing statements like “you are kaffir”. They will not help you anyway, except to keep your ego high. May Allah shower His Mercy on you and grant you courage to accept the verdict of the Holy Quran and Holy Prophet(saw).

This question was posted on the Yahoo! answers website and the responses posted by ignorant Internet users were typical of the anti-Ahmadiyya propaganda. I posted this as an answer:
You can learn about Ahmadiyya Islam at their official website http://www.alislam.org
They believe that the Messiah and Mahdi being awaited by Muslims has arrived in the person of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, to spread the true peaceful message of Islam to the corners of the world. They have missions all around the world. Their members contribute and donate to spread the message and build mosques. They have just built the biggest mosque in Canada and are now building one in Ireland. They built the first mosque in Spain after 700 years. They run 24/7 TV channel called Muslim TV Ahmadiyya (http://www.mta.tv) again run by the donations of their members (unlike oil money of Arabs training terrorists in Afghanistan and Pakistan)
They have translated Holy Quran (yes of course same Holy Quran that was revealed to Holy Prophet) into 70 languages of the world and have established their missions in 190 countries.
Rest of the Muslims are still waiting for the Messiah/Mahdi.
That is only difference. Rest is all propaganda and lies by detractors.
I am writing to inform you of the continuous and repeated violations of human rights in Indonesia. As you must be aware, on February 6th 2010, 3 members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at were publicly killed in the streets of Cikeusik. The attack was conducted by some 700 people. Police failed to stop this even though they had been warned a few days before about an impending attack on the local Ahmadi Muslims. Reportedly, the attackers came to the local centre of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaaat, prepared with machetes, spears, knives and other weapons.
Even more appalling was that this attack was also caught on amateur video with a barbaric beating of two dead young men who already lay dead on the ground. I reiterate, they were not moving and yet they were continually being beaten and in the background you heard the crowd chanting “Allah o Akbar”. This video has now gone viral and has been submitted to various human rights organizations and has spread across the world. The attackers are clearly identifiable in this video. Up until now, no one has been arrested in regard to this event. We trust that the government will make every effort to arrest and charge those involved in this heinous act.
The members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at urge you to take action and stop the barbaric persecution of Ahmadis. According to the Constitution of the Republic of Indonesia, Section XI, Article 29: “The State guarantees each and every citizen the freedom of religion and of worship in accordance with his religion and belief.” The acts of violence against the Ahmadi’s are a clear infringement of this and a clear violation of basic human rights.
I am writing to encourage the government of Indonesia not to stray from the path of equal rights of its citizens. The current path of religious intolerance will only continue to escalate and worsen if nothing is done to help. I implore that the government, take a stance of justice and protect its minorities from all religious intolerance. As a Muslim, I’m spreading the word of these injustices to others and I want to ensure that we will not stop spreading the word of this persecution until the people responsible are brought to justice and Ahmadi Muslims safety is guaranteed in your country.
There is a cyclic dependency for this perl module which is causing problem in installation. You would receive email like this:

This article, rather than contributing to any form of scholarly debate, merely highlights the same age old criticisms and attacks of the Orientalists. Judging the entire religion of Islam through the lens of Western perfection will no doubt cause it to appear defunct. Similarly, judging any other religion or culture through the same lens will produce the same results. Has the writer not read the Bible or the Bhagavad Gita? The reality is that nowhere do we find gender equality. However, Islam is the only religion, that having recognized the differences between males and females, protects each within their own unique spheres of life which they have been created for.
Although, every flippant statement of Kanwar’s can be counter argued, I will just take one point. Mahfooz Kanwar claims that “At birth, all infants are equal, but Islam makes then unequal”. This statement would be true if Kanwar was living in some form of Utopia, but if he is living on Planet Earth, then he would be shocked to learn that it is far from the truth. Women are still today fighting for basic rights in the most developed countries. Has Kanwar not heard of the Global Gender Gap Report published by the World Economic Forum? Women in the most developed nations are still fighting for equal pay, equal access to jobs and political representation.
The truth of the matter is human civilization and history is full of examples where one group; by virtue of them being physically, mentally, intellectually or financially stronger, perceives themselves to have the right to subjugate the other. Rather than argue back and forth over the meanings behind Arabic verses from the Holy Quran, I challenge Kanwar to show one example where the Founder of Islam, the Holy Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon Him, used force against any one of his wives. In the words of the Prophet himself, “the best among you is he who is best in his treatment of his wife” (Abu Dawud).
The Pope seems to have understood the ididocracy of the laws well. Just as he says, they are used to discriminate against minorities; especially Christians and Ahmadi Muslims. The laws do not serve to honor the Prophet Muhammad or Islam, for the Prophet taught us to love and respect all of Gods creatures and religions.
To all the followers of this perverted religion which we find in Pakistan, they should be reminded that there is no punishment in Islam for blasphemy. No such punishment is prescribed in the Holy Qur’an, or in any of the traditions of the Prophet Muhammad(saw). Islam promotes the need for respect of all religions for the sake of peace in society, but it does not set out any punishment for blasphemy despite the offence it may cause people of faith.
Love for all Hatred for None!
