Short life-sketch of The Leader of the Time
Mohammad Bayazeed Khan Panni
Founder Emam of Hezbut Tawheed
Born in the aristocrat family of the Panni’s on March 11, 1925 (15 Shaban, Lailat ul Baraat), 27th of Falgun, in maternal grandfather’s house at Tangail, and brought up in his village in Karatia. His formal education started in Rukaiya High Madrasa, named after his great aunt, wife of Mr. Wajed Ali Khan Panni, founder of the Saadat University College in his village. After studying there for two years, he was transferred to the local high school, HN Institution named after his great grandfather Hafez Mahmud Ali Khan Panni under Calcutta (now Kolkata) University from where he passed his matriculation in 1942 (now SSC). After a brief period in the Saadat College, he was admitted in the Azizul Huq College at Bogra. After studying the first year there, he was again transferred to Islamia College now Moulana Abul Kalam Azad College in Kolkata where he finished his second year.
During that time, this sub-continent was in turmoil, politically and socially in its struggle for independence from the British rule. During his second year in Kolkata, which was a hot bed in this struggle, he got deeply involved in it. In this connection, he came in contact of Mahatma Gandhi, Quayede Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah, Aruvindu Bose, Shahid Sohrawardi, Moulana Sayeed Abul Ala Maududi and so on. Though, the most prominent political parties in the struggle were Indian National Congress under leadership of M.K.Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru and the All India Muslim League under the leadership of M.A. Jinnah, he joined a smaller movement called “The Khak saar Movement” Allama Enayetullah Khan Al-Mashriqui. Though smaller than those two main parties, this movement was also a All India Movement. Though he joined this movement as an ordinary member and a student, he soon rose to the position of Commander of the then East Bengal superseding many elder and older members.
He soon came under notice of the leader of the movement Allama Mashriqui himself who selected him out of whole India as one of the 96 (ninety-six) commanders Salar-e-Khas Hind, (special commanders, India) for very special duties and assignments, he was only 22 years old then, just before the British left leaving India after partition.With the breakup of India and the creation of Pakistan, he came back to his village which was by then The East Pakistan, out of all touch with politics and lived a quiet life for sometime spending his time on and off in business ventures in which he mostly failed and hunting trips in different parts of the country. During this time, he wrote the book “Bagh Bon Bonduk” based on his big game hunting experiences, which was highly appreciated by common readers and acclaimed by famous critics. Since the beginning of Pakistan in 1947, the governments were trying to adjust themselves and fit into the democratic system politically but, since the system, which originated in the European society and evolved there and was imposed by the European rulers in Eastern countries where it did not suit the psyche of the people, nor the socio economic condition, it produced various kinds of problems and chaotic conditions for which frequent military interventions and takeovers occurred. In the mid 50’s, he started studying in homoeopathic medical treatment and got his degree of a qualified physician in 1957 and started medical practice in his home village. In 1963, he stood for Parliament bye-election from Tangail-Bashail constituency vacated by his cousin Mr. Khurram Khan Panni who was appointed as ambassador of Pakistan. He got elected as an independent candidate for the East Pakistan Provincial Assembly defeating six other candidates including nominees of Awami League and Muslim League all of whom lost their security deposits for not getting required minimum votes. During his tenure, he became a member of Commonwealth Parliamentary Association. Besides this he became member of some sub-committees like Standing Committee on Public Accounts, Committee of Rule of Procedure, and Committee on Conduct of Members and Select Committee on Whipping Bill.
He lost the next election for various reasons one being changing his home constituency. After that, he left politics as he could not suit himself to the immorality and corruption in it and devoted himself to his medical practice. In 1963 he established Haider Ali Red-cross Maternity and Child Welfare Hospital in his home village from which people all around getting great service. In 1969, at the age of 44, he married Mariam Suttar, from Memon Community, Kutch, Bombay whose family migrated to this country.In 1996 his wife died and in 1999 he married Khadiza Khatun of Munshigonje (Bikrampur) Since young age, after he read and came to know the early history of the Moslem nation, some questions arose in his mind, which was baffling and intriguing. That was the time when, most Moslem people were being ruled by various European nations conquered and enslaved by them.
The contrast between the early history of this Moslem nation and the days he lived in was so great that, he wondered if it were the same people. The glorious state of being the most powerful nation in the world economically and militarily and being most advanced in education in all spheres of knowledge had become the most despicable on earth. He wondered what made the early people so great and lack of what had made them what is was, a people subjugated, enslaved and ruled by foreign powers, stricken by poverty and illiteracy despised and subject of contempt by other peoples of the world. Slowly, by the Grace of Allah
he started getting answers of this enigma.
By 60’s, the answer was crystallized and clear to him. He realized that, the thing that transformed the almost fully illiterate probably the poorest people in the world, steeped in endless quarrelling among themselves and completely ignored with contempt by other nations into what it became only within a few years into a world shaking power defeating the then two super powers, not one after another, but at a time and establishing a new civilization was a “Deen” (way of life, wrongly called religion today) brought by The Last Messenger of Allah
He also realized that, a century after the departure of The Messenger of Allah
, this Deen started becoming perverted and over the centuries, this perversion now had reached a point where it had no similarity with the original one except its outward look, the rituals etc. what is visible. Its inside is completely reversed, the very basis of it the Tawheed – the sovereignty of Allah
is lost, the meaning of its Kalema wrongly changed, its aquida (comprehensive concept of its goal, the meaning of its existence) is perverted. When the reasons of the fall of this nation were clear to him, he wrote a book on it in Bangla “E Islam Islam
-e Noy” (This Islam
is not Islam
at all) and had it published in 1996. Naturally the present day “Mollas”, the religious leaders of this present perverted Islam did not like the idea and started agitation against him with various kinds of adverse propaganda like; he was misguided, had become a Christian and started campaign in masjid (mosques) with propagative speeches against him. They tried to arouse the common people against him, by spreading different types of lies which were absolutely baseless and irrelevant such as he takes money from Christians and Jews, he and his followers pray facing east, they use black shroud for their dead and bury them in sitting position and so forth, and even much worse things. They declared him Kafer i.e. unbeliever. They approached the Home Ministry and pressurized it to ban the book and astonishingly the Ministry succumbed to the pressure and proscribed the book without asking for any explanations, nor even, informing the writer. In 1995, he started a movement, which he named as Hezbut Tawheed (Party of Tawheed), calling people to the real Islam
. That movement is still going on under his leadership. The media, both print and electronic of this country is intensely against Islam
One of the reasons of this being long slavery of the foreign Christian rule. Beside the antagonism of the Mollas, the media is continuing a relentless vile propaganda against this movement.
Being a poor organization, without resources to counter the vile lies about the Hezbut Tawheed by the media and the “mollas”, the one sided propaganda has been able to portray the Hezbut Tawheed as a militant, terrorist and extremist movement, though it is on record that, there has not been a single instance of its members committing a crime or breaking a single law in its lifetime of 16 years. It appears that, the policy of the media and the mollas is that of Dr. Goebbels, the information and Propaganda Minister of Mr. Adolph Hitler which is “If you propagate a lie and keep on repeating it enough times, it gets accepted as true by the people”. The one sided relentless propaganda by the media and the mollas to such extent that, so far, 209 cases have been instituted against the members of the movement in the law courts by the Police though, the Police has not been able to prove any law breaking and except a few pending cases, in everyone of the cases, the members have been proven innocent and the case dismissed by the judges.
In 1998, another book “Dajjal
? The Judeo Christian Civilization!” was published in which he proved from Hadiths and The Bible that, the Judeo Christian Civilization is The Dajjal
as prophesied by The Last Messenger of Allah
. It became the bestseller in 2008 in this country. Beside this, he has authored lesser writings like: · Islam
er Prokrito Ruprekha, (The Outline of the True Islam
) · Islamer Prokrito Salah (The Real Salah of Islam
) · Jehad, Ketal, Shontrash (Struggle, Armed Fight & Terrorism) · Hezbut Tawheed er Lokho o Uddesho, (The Goal and Object of the Hezbut Tawheed)
