  • Being honest to be a martyr these days is not so simple as being part of the army of a Muslim country. And there's even a hadith qudsi showing this where one of the first who entered hell was a man who seemingly died as a martyr and another who seemingly died as a hafidh of qur'an and the third one was a spending wealthy man (See here). It is in first place your intention that counts and whether you do this for the sake of Allah. In most armies soldiers are trained and pushed to fight for their country ...

Residing in lands of disbelievers is a hot topic in Islam. Prophet advised migration to such Muslims.

I disavow every Muslim who resides among the mushrikeen.”

Narrated by Abu Dawood (2645) and at-Tirmidhi (1604). Classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Irwa’ al-Ghaleel (5/29-30)

Secondly many scholars are against working for armies of mushrikeen/darl ul kufr. Since it involves fighting against Muslims and with those with whom Muslims have treaties example Pakistan having treaties with China.

Thirdly, if dar-ul - kufr doesn't have any wars with Muslims, some scholars say Muslims can gain knowledge of the strategies of kuffar by joining these armies.

Coming to the question Pakistan is not a Sharia governed Country. It's difficult to conclude whether Pakistani Muslims die as Martyrs on path of Allah. Definitely Indian Muslims do not die as Martyrs in path of Allah.

PS: I'm Indian by natural citizenship.


Only those are martyrs in Islam who were fighting in the cause of Allah, for the superiority of Islam.

It is difficult to reason how supporting India against Pakistan would be of any benefit to Islam, as it is a secular country with a polytheist majority. Pakistan is not fully Shariah compliant but it has at least a semblance of an Islamic identity.
