True. @Javedakhtarjadu 's ggf issued fatwa of Jihad from Jama Masjid against those who don't believe that Muhammad is final prophet. He was sure this is gateway to Jannat. And exactly like in Moplah riots, the fatwa became excuse to decimate idol-worshipping Hindus....1/n
The ggf of @Javedakhtarjadu Maulana Fazle Haq Khairabadi was a genius in Quran who believed in that school of thought where idol-worshipping Kafirs are worst of creatures and Hindustan is the fiefdom of Muslims. He rebelled against British to protect his fiefdom...2/n
Prior to fatwa against British, the ggf was part of group that caused Hindu-Muslim riots in 1855. They declared that Hanumangarhi temple is actually a mosque of Babur and instigated Muslims to forcefully pray there..3/n
At call of Jihad to capture Hanumangarhi, Hindus stood up. Khairadbadi (@Javedakhtarjadu 's ggf) was angry that 269 Mujahideens were killed by Hindus just because they wanted to offer Namaz in Hanuman Mandir. He was chosen as part of 4 member planning team to settle matters 4/n
In 1857, @Javedakhtarjadu 's ggf Khairabadi was convinced that one Mujahid is equal to 100 disbelievers and hence planned to overthrow British and become rulers of Hindus again. This earned him fame of "freedom fighter". 5/n
Khairabadi, ggf of @Javedakhtarjadu issued a fatwa of Jihad against British and got it signed by 35 Ulemas. The text of fatwa is available today. It does not talk of India or Indians. It only refers to Islam and Muslims. Thus his freedom fight was to establish Darul-Islam...6/n
When his experiment of Jihad against British failed, Khairabadi, ggf of @Javedakhtarjadu denied all charges in trial. He said he is a loyal British fan and has been arrested due to mistaken identity. He claimed some other Khairabadi is traitor and not him...7/n
From Kala Pani, @Javedakhtarjadu 's ggf wrote mercy petitions denying all charges and reaffirming unflinching loyalty to British. But British instead condemned the process of leniency in his case. He died in Kala Pani claiming till last breath that he was a British loyalist..8/n
.@Javedakhtarjadu 's grandfather Maulvi Shamsul Haque was finally able to convince British that his father Khairabadi is greatest loyalist of British ever. But they say, when the orders for his release came, it was found that he died just an hour ago...9/n
A Mazar was constructed to honor the British loyalist where Muslims still pay their respects...10/n
While in jail, @Javedakhtarjadu 's ggf wrote a masterpiece Al-Sauratul-Hindiya in Arabic detailing 1857 rebellion. (British did not know Arabic). The book is not only critical of British but also of Hindus. As per the book, anyone who is not a Mujahid is a sinner..11/n
.@Javedakhtarjadu 's ggf wrote a few more books in Kala Pani - all based on same hate for anything outside his version of Islam. He was especially critical of Jats and called them as looters...12/n
For above tweets, I took reference from multiple sources. An important source is research paper "THE REVOLT OF 1857 AND MAULVI FAZLE HAQ KHAIRABADI" by Aijaz Ahmed published in 2014 in Goldern Research Thoughts journal...13/n
Oh. Did I mention that while @Javedakhtarjadu 's great grandfather Khairabadi instigated others to sacrifice and die for Jihad, he himself led a lavish luxurious life and never even saw a battlefield. And till end, he and his family were convincing British of their loyalty..14/n
Example of communal harmony and secular Jihad of @Javedakhtarjadu 's great grand father Khairabadi.
..15/n
When arrested, @Javedakhtarjadu 's great grand father categorically assured British that he was never against British. He proved his British Loyalty in all possible ways...16/n
If British had pardoned him just a day before, instead of being freedom fighter, @Javedakhtarjadu 's great grand father would have been hailed as greatest loyalist of British...17/n
Here is his hate against Hindus. For @Javedakhtarjadu 's great grandfather, Hindus were as wretched s Christian British. DId not even spare Muslims who were tolerant of non-Muslims. Hence his Jihad aimed to kill all non-Jihadis. Exactly like ISIS.18/n
Another example of ISIS type mentality of @Javedakhtarjadu 's great grand father, now hailed as freedom fighter and saint. Bracketing all Hindus and Christians as sinners. This is from Proceedings of the Indian History Congress, Vol. 48 (1987), pp. 355-365 19/n
