Who was Aamir Cheema?

Who was Aamir Cheema? A Hero, A Shaheed or an Unfortunate Misguided Soul?

Aamir Cheema was a student in Germany. Apparently he went to assassinate the editor of Die Welt newspaper for publishing the infamous cartoons. Security arrested him in the lobby of the building and he was allegedly carrying a knife and told the police that he was going to kill the editor. He was arrested by the police. But later according to the German authorities he committed suicide while in prison. According to German authorities an autopsy was performed in the presence of two Pakistani FIA officials. The autopsy showed that there were no marks indicating physical violence.

Read: Herald Tribune [This is a biased report from International Herald Tribune]
Read: Asia Media @ UCLA

Did he attack, or did he only intend to attack? Or did he tell that to the security guards in the lobby, which means that he was really pissed off (that is, temporarily insane). Either way, he was not a murderer or an assassin, or a terrorist for that matter. He was just a very pissed off and stressed out young man. Now why would he commit suicide? This is again not clear. Did the Pakistani Ambassador to Germany meet this kid in the prison? Forget the Ambassador, did anyone from the Pakistani Embassy go and talk to him while he was in custody? Was an attorney for his defense arranged? Was the Pakistani Embassy notified by the German police?

I assure you that the two FIA officials that they deputed to watch over the autopsy were also equally incompetent. The government should have sent the top coroner or a professor of Forensic Medicine from KEMC, instead of these two morons from FIA. This just goes to show that our top officials have their heads so far down up their behinds that they cannot think or see straight. These morons got a free trip to Germany to buy stuff for their wives and children from TA/DA.

Please tell me how could an idiot a moron from FIA [like a blind and a deaf] can tell by “observing” an autopsy being performed by German authorities if there was any foul-play? Are they experts in Forensic Medicine? Did they make sure that the body was sealed after the suicide was discovered? How did they confirm that there was no tampering by the German police and other officials? Are we going to take the Germans for their word on it? Should we take their word for it under the circumstances? Why was an expert in Forensics not sent on the trip?

There are so many questions but no answers. Only a lot of horse-sh*t is being dolled out by the most incompetent people on the planet – GOP

The problem is that they should have taken over the body and conducted autopsy not just looking for signs of physical violence on the skin, but also the detailed analysis of the other organs to see if he was asphyxiated or traumatized in any other way. Nothing about this case makes sense.

Unfortunately, we have very incompetent people in the top echelons of the GOP. And the tragedy is that these people are oblivious of their responsibilities to the nation. And if you dare remind them, they would shamelessly disagree and blame someone else.

I am not saying that Aamir was murdered, but I am saying that again we screwed up in the way he handled the whole affair. I think the main issue is how his case was mishandled by the Pakistani Consulate and the Embassy, and afterwards by the Government.

There is always a test of goodness: Would the situation have been different if it was son of the Pakistani Ambassador to Germany?

Also, a few questions that all Pakistanis should ask themselves: What is wrong with our youth and what are we teaching them? What kind of stupid brain-washing drove this young man to pull an extremely stupid stunt like this? What is this nation and its younger generation coming to? Have we forgotten the basic teachings of the Prophet (PBUH)? Is he really a hero and “shaheed” or a very unfortunate and extremely misguided soul?

    We cant make understand these things to you people, which are not in Islam. Just think, why a man in army go on the borders and accept the death for his country, just for a piece of land. Didn’t he know that he might be killed during the war. Why high pride medals were distributed among them. Just think or read Islam to understand that all. This is not a matter of personal like or dislike.

  22. hasan (unregistered) on May 26th, 2006 @ 2:08 pm

    Amir cheema had his throat cut. There is nothing in his cell aiding him to commit suicide. German Nazi’s have killed many other prisoners just do a search on internet and you’ll see people crying for help as anyone who enters these so called jails die mystereously.

    Germans will be germans. Hitler’s dirty remanants. Pakistni government had done their best to provide a cover up of the issue that is why he was burried quickly and away from crowds.

    FIA is a corrupt organization with the most incompetent staff quite like the police. A slain thorat is not hard to miss. I guess, the guys went on a vacation in germany and nothing else.

    By the way its true indian rots…drink urine (calling it urinotherapy) and eat pigs with british. They know if they do this they’ll be close to their gora sahib (master white). They dont have any religion so thats easy for them to adopt but for muslims its not possible and thats why we have never become close buddys with white christians and jews.

    we really need more amir cheema…
    may ALLAH help us…

    I guess Aamir Cheema needed brain surgery, and it failed.

    German medical systems need to improve … but wait, why are such a huge percent of these Lahori and Pakistani brains so rotten? Must be some nuclear fallout.

    It shows how so many of you guys are bottom feeders to be inspired by such low-lifes. Would you stop being such free-loaders and work on something useful?!

    Ammir Cheema Shaeed (RHA) is has added his name in the list of martyrs. These pigs eaters cant understand how it happens. They just know to drink and do %#&* things.

    Read on … http://www.faithfreedom.org/oped/YM60524.htm

    “In the history of Ibn Hasham, the reason of revelation of the above verse has given this that in the Sura (the prophets,) verse 98, stated, “Lo! Ye (Idolaters) and that which ye worship beside Allah are fuel of hell. There unto ye will come”. When Mohd recited this verse in the presence of idolaters, among them Walied ibn Mugharah was present there.

    When Zubary came to this Majjles – gathering, Mugharah mentioned to him that Mohd had said such thing about our Idols .Zubary said, “I swear to Allah, if he had said such thing in front of me, I would have shut his mouth. But you go and ask Mohd “Is it true that every thing which has been worshiped apart from Allah will be the fuel of hell?” We worship the Angel’s and Jews worship Ezra (Isaiah) and Christians worship Jesus the son of Mary.

    All the people that were sitting in the meeting were very pleased and clapped their hands on his answer and said (subhan Allah) praise Allah, Zubry has defeated Mohd in his logic. When people took this message to Mohd, the prophet of Islam, he was completely stunned and puzzled and starts waiting for the new revelation but the revelation did not come until he died. Mohd and his Allah didn’t and couldn’t provide answers to Zubry. I’m sure the Mullahs of this age could give answer to this question, because they are stupid enough!

    From the above incident we can imagine that the Arab poets were very intelligent and they were able to reproduce a lot better linguistic literature then the Quran and they did. As Mohd gained the political and military power in the Arab world, the Muslims started destroying the Pre-Islamic linguistic literature. Arabs were well advanced in every aspect of life before the advent of Islam. Muslims intentionally have given the name JHILIYYAH (Ignorance) to pre-Islamic period.”

  37. C F M (unregistered) on June 1st, 2006 @ 6:34 pm

    The mentioned verse was strictly directed towards the idols. Christians do not worship Jesus, and Jews do not worship Eesa to the very meaning!

    It is very easy to twist the meanings of Quranic Verses to support ones own logic. Gods beside Allah are what peope believe in and usrely they will be fuel of fire along with the followers.

    However, what Zubry said is not about worshipping, its about misperception.

    Ignorant are those who think they can win by giving so called justful arguments.

    As far as Aamir Cheema’s matter is concerned, if he really committed suicide, then he is not a martyr.

    We should look behind the scenes.

  38. (SSGPRA) (unregistered) on June 1st, 2006 @ 10:21 pm

    Thoze nonsense people who are claim to be the most respected figurez of human rights even cant protect their single word. One of our brother haz highlighted very important questionz and i would again like to mentions thoze important lines here:
    Did anyone heard about that bastard who was attacked? Waz he attackedor was just planned to be attacked? We know nothing at all. The seond thing is: all cells in the german jails have security cameras, why that tape waz not provided for a clarification? If the german currupt govt and low mentality people who are just trying to pretend thier empty arrogancy were so afraid to keep ‘Our Hero’ alive then they must accept that they were unable to face ‘Irresistible hero’ and they went for the extreme action. They martyred ‘Amir Cheema’ (RHA). We are very unfortunate from one more aspect that our Pakistani govt is pro american and they gave a cover to this very important matter which was a ‘Religious Issue’ they didn’t even took it az a matter of sovereignty. Alas!!! They couldnt even defend thier citizen. I wrote all this bcos people believe in logic, now i come to the other aspect. Thoze people who really want to know it by a very strong logic pls read it carefully!!!!!!!!!!!
    Have you ever seen a (Janaza) funeral which waz monitored by several agencies? govt of Pakistan and all anti ‘ISLAM’ lobby waz working on it until the ‘Great Martyr’ was buried. If you have not seen that recording then try to get it by your source and see. How people were ready to die for the same cause, which took ‘Amir Cheema’ (RHA) to the (Jannat) Heaven. Notice how people were crying for their ‘Hero”? Can german show this in their history that even a few people cried for their hero? You germans Don’t just critisize the comments what people give, but give a logic, read the history or ur’s and our’s u will then know or at least you will try to think for a while why ‘MUSLIMZ’ can give their life so easily? I can also write so many bad words and I also have egression which iz out of my control, but Every non ‘Muslim’ Listen to me carefully, I respect my ‘Hero’ so much that my fingerz can’t add such ditry wordz in this paragraph bcos the name of our ‘Hero’ is written in it. All of you!!!!! Learn how much we people respect our ‘Heroz’. Let me be decent with you this time but *remember* be ready for revenge, you people are coward can’t even walk on the street alone. Need security and so our Pakistan govt is, they provide you everything.

    “We salute ‘Amir Cheema’ (RHA) for the work he haz done, nobody from Turkey to Indoneisa, and from Nepal to Burma’ did. But his credit and honor came to ‘Amir Cheema’ (RHA). ‘He’ iz the saver of our ‘MUSLIM’ nation. We owe him our lifez.
    ‘We salute you “Amir Cheema’ (RHA) and your parents who gave you such teachingz.

    I request all those ‘MUSLIM’ brother and sisterz to work on their own and try to remind our self that we cant compromise for everything but cannot even think to compromise on the name of ‘ISLAM’.
    “May Allah give us a chance for the sake of “Nabi Muhammad (S.A.W)” to take revenge for ‘Amir Cheema’z’ cause and kill thoze who are responsible. (Ameeen)

    Islam is the religion of peace. I am alhamdolillah practicng muslim. We respect all the prophets including Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him) and Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him). Today islam is being insulted because of our own actions. If we had followed the true teachings of Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him)we would not have ended up like this. Kids like Aamir Cheema may be among muslims but they do not represent ISLAM. Islam does not allow suicide and I am sure, Mr. Cheema never commited suicide. He might have just got pissed on the situation and he ended up going to kill some one with a butter knife. Let me tell you guys one thing very staright. We do have great Christian people and Americans and also great people but American government sucks. American government plans every thing and in the result, muslims are torrured arround the world. Mr. Bush ploted 9-11 attacks because he loves, licks and sucks OIL. It is all about Business and Money.

    Aoa to all brothers/Sisters.
    I want to comment on following section of above article
    “so, a few questions that all Pakistanis should ask themselves: What is wrong with our youth and what are we teaching them? What kind of stupid brain-washing drove this young man to pull an extremely stupid stunt like this? What is this nation and its younger generation coming to? Have we forgotten the basic teachings of the Prophet (PBUH)? Is he really a hero and “shaheed” or a very unfortunate and extremely misguided soul? ”
    Lets visit Karbala, [I am not Shia by the way]..Hazrat Imam Hassan ,Hussain [rz] have been offered settlement by the Yazeed..why on the earth would he left Madina with his family and stood against the Yazid and finally all of his family suffered in karbala and received shahadat.
    Now recall your comments…..!!!! what you say for this action….!!!!
    Muhammad [PBUH] is “the reason” behind this Universe, He , by him self asked to LOVE him more than relatives, money, children.
    You have no right to JUDGE that what Aamir Cheema was ,we should judge ourselves that WHAT WE ARE DOING FOR THE NAME OF MUHAMMAD [PBUH] ,YOU might just have written that column and that’s it but he have given his life…and believe me its not easy.
    I totally agree with you on ALL points in your article other than the last paragraph.

  43. An Apostate (unregistered) on June 7th, 2006 @ 7:31 am

    An ex-muslim writes about how his eyes opened to reality … very interesting …

    “I am an apostate of Persian origin. Like a lot of you, I was a believer who’s conscience would not allow me to speak against Mohammad & his Koran. I spent most of my high school and college life in muslim countries. Islamic ideology was a subject of study right up to University level. However, the curriculum was predominantly about Islam’s five pillers, battles (all of which won by muslims including Uhud) and other various topics but very little was taught about the actual biography of Mohammad.

    Seeds of doubt were sown approx 3 yrs back when for the first time in my life, I picked up a biography of Mohammad written by Karen Armstrong. There were things in there I felt needed further investigation because it kind of suprised me. Mind you, I was never religious per se, but I respected the Koran and alway felt that it the immutable word of Allah.

    I then did some digging by reading more books on the biography of Mohammad and Islam, read the Koran (Yusuf Ali, Shakir, Pickthall), and currently still reading the tafisr by Ibn Kathir. I have finally realized that this whole damn thing is a hoax. The Koran is full of contradictions and absurdity. If there is a God/Allah as described in the Koran, and if he did dictate the Koran, it would not be a subject of debate. The whole world would have embraced Islam. Not long ago, I once asked an Imam as to what evidence could he provide that the Koran is the true word of God? his reply was that because Holy Mo was the model of perfection, the perfect human being, and that is why Koran can only come from a higher power.

    Like most muslims, I had been a victim of intellectual dishonesty. Islamic teachers and scholars in muslim countries and in the west are unwilling to expose the full picture. All they are good at is in glorifying Islam.”

    hum abhi se kia batein kia hamarey dil mein hey

    Kheench ker laee hey sub ko qatal honey key liey..
    aashqon ka aaj jhamghat koocha-e-qaril mein hey!

    I salute him and his family for bringing him up as a true muslim…!
    May his soul be rest in peace!
