Sheik Qazi Hussain Ahmed

One of Pakistan's most influential and religious politicians will travel to Oslo later this month to speak before local Muslims. His party has earlier hailed Osama bin Laden, and he's been denied entry to Belgium and the Netherlands. Qazi Hussain Ahmed is due to speak in Oslo later this month.

The Islamic Cultural Center in Oslo's Grønland neighbourhood has invited Qazi Hussain Ahmed, leader of Pakistan's largest religious party, to Oslo. He's scheduled to speak at a religious gathering August 22 and before a Muslim students' organization from the University of Oslo two days later.

Qazi Hussain Ahmed has earlier make flattering comments about Osama bin Laden, and his party, Jamaat-e-Islami, also has hailed al-Qaeda members as heroes.

The party also has allegedly encouraged its members to shield al-Qaeda members who are fleeing US troops in Afghanistan. Because of this, both Belgium and the Netherlands blocked his entry as late as May of this year.

Officials at Oslo's Islamic Cultural Center claim Qazi Hussain Ahmed's ties to Osama bin Laden are inflated. "Who says he supports Osama bin Laden?" asked local imam Hafiz Mehboob ur-Rehman. "We don't think he's controversial. We don't support terrorism and stay on the right side of the law."

Muslim News

Having recently published an article on the plight of post-September 11 American academia, I was surprised to receive an e-mail informing me that a new website was being launched to monitor anti-Israeli academics in the US. In my earlier piece, I have said that US universities are likely to be one of the more serious casualties of the George Bush's war on terrorism. New draconian regulations on immigration are likely to dry up the steady flow of overseas student that kept American academic life flourishing. The attack on civil liberties and the right-wing onslaught on academic freedoms is likely to take care of what is left then.

However, the announcement of the new enterprise (dubbed Campus Watch) by the Philadelphia-based Middle East Forum, a well-known pro-Israeli centre run by the polemicist Daniel Pipes, shows that the danger is much more present and clear than hitherto feared...
