    Mr Javed Ahmed Ghamidi has given a counter narrative to the Jihad which is being exploited in the world currently. The use of force is called jihad orqital, however, in the Qur’an,it can be classified in two distinct categories:
    Firstly, against injustice and oppression.
    Secondly, against those who reject the truth after it has been conclusively communicated to them.
    The first type of jihadis an eternal directive of the shari‘ah. As stated earlier, it is undertaken to curb oppression and injustice. The second type, however, does not relate to the shari‘ah; it relates to the divine law of itmam al-hujjah (conclusive communication of the truth). This law is always implemented in this world directly by the Almighty through people on whom He bestows the status of risalah(messengerhood). In the history of mankind, for the very last time this status was conferred on the Prophet Muhammad (sws):
    According to this law, once the truth is communicated to a people through their respective messengers in a conclusive manner and they still deny it in spite of being convinced about it, they are punished in this very world. At times, this punishment is through earthquakes, cyclones and other calamities and disasters, while, at others, it emanates from the swords of the believers. As a result, those who have denied the truth are totally vanquished in their land and the truth reigns supreme in it. In the case of Prophet Muhammad (sws), the Divine scourge took this very form. Consequently, just as the Prophet (sws) and his Companions (rta) were asked to wage war against oppression and injustice, they were also asked to wage war to punish the rejecters of the truth once it had become totally manifest to his addressees. This was actually a Divine plan executed through human beings. It should be viewed as a divine practice (sunnatullah) and cannot be initiated by human beings in any manner; it is not part of the shari‘ah.
