Sheikh Gilani in Kashmir

Could this really be the Sheikh Gilani? That is, the Pakistani Sheikh Syed Mubarak Ali Hasmi Shah Gilani, a known terrorist who founded Jamaat ul-Fuqra (“Community of the Impoverished”, also known as “Muslims of America”)?

Over the past thirty years Sheikh Gilani’s org has established a network of dozens of rural training compounds across the United States and Canada. It recruits new members primarily through proselytizing in the prison system.

It looks like him, and he’s wearing the same furry cap he sports in some of his other photos. But I await definite confirmation that this is indeed the illustrious sheikh, stirring up his fellow Muslims in the Indian province of Jammu and Kashmir.

Many thanks to Achintya Das for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:


00:00   The kids of Pakistan,
00:04   they have united and declared, and we,
00:08   the administration of Pakistan
00:16   and the common people of Pakistan,
00:20   are also aware of one thing, that Pakistan was created for Islam,
00:24   And it will only be used for Islam.
00:28   There should not be socialism.
00:32   If you support it, then raise your hands
00:36   Secularism will also not rule in Pakistan
00:40   There should not be any nationalism. (The crowd cheers: it will not rule, it will not rule)
00:44   American policy will not rule in Pakistan.
00:48   Communism and liberalism will not rule there.
00:52   Only Islam will rule in Pakistan: Inshallah
00:56   All people say Inshallah: Inshallah , Inshallah , Inshallah
01:00   Only because of Islam and the love of Islam.
01:08   We are Pakistanis and Pakistan is ours.
01:12   We are Pakistanis and Pakistan is ours.
01:16   We are Pakistanis and Pakistan is ours.
01:21   We are Pakistanis and Pakistan is ours.
01:25   The crowd is cheering that we are Pakistanis and Pakistan is ours.
01:29   The crowd is cheering loudly and supports this radical leader.
01:33   They are hoisting Islamic flags and chanting pro-Pakistani slogans on Indian soil in Kashmir.
01:41   This speaker at this gathering is Syed Ali Sha Gilani a separatist conservative Islamic leader of Jammu and Kashmir state.
01:45   He wants to liberate Pakistan from Indian administration, and this gathering’s huge support proves the danger of Kashmir.
