Inquiry & Analysis Series No. 1685

This report is the second in a series about the 19th-century antisemitic libel The Protocols of the Elders of Zion and its dissemination, circulation, and use, in Urdu, Turkish, Farsi, and Arabic.


In South Asia, there are two Urdu translations of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion: one published in Pakistan and the other in India.

In Pakistan, the Protocols were translated into Urdu by a translator with the pen name Ibn Hasan. His translation is titled Saihuniyat Ke Dana Buzrugon Ki Dastawezaat – Taskheer-e-Alam Ka Alami Yehudi Mansooba ("The Protocols of the Wise Elders of Zionism – The Jewish Global Plan For World Domination"). It is published by Muslim World Data Processing, Pakistan, which appears to be a digital publication house for Islamist books. The book's cover page features a subtitle that reads: "International Zionism and Freemason Organization."

The introductory chapter of Ibn Hasan's translation, about Freemason Lodges, argues that it is possible that there are no Jewish members of the Freemasons, but that the organization is "organized in such a way that ultimately serves the objectives of international Zionism." A second introductory chapter notes that the Protocols mention establishing a "super government" and that that the United Nations is under the "control of Jews," as attested to by the fact that 73 Jews occupy important positions in 10 United Nations institutions.

In India, the Protocols were translated into Urdu by a translator named Muhammad Yahya Khan. This Urdu translation is based on Victor E. Marsden's translation of the Protocols into English from Russian. The Urdu rendition is titled Yehudi Protocols – Greater Israel Ke Aalami Saihooni Mansoobey Ki Khufiya Dastatwezaat Ka Pehla Angrezi, Urdu Tarjuma ("The Jewish Protocols – The First English-Urdu Translation of the Secret Documents of the International Zionist Plan for Greater Israel"). It is published by Milli Publications, a publishing house based in the Abul Fazl Enclave area of New Delhi. Abul Fazl Enclave is an area of New Delhi known to be home to several Islamist groups, and is the headquarters of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind (See MEMRI Daily Brief No. 77, New Delhi's Abul Fazl Enclave Emerging As India's Biggest Publication Center For Jihadi Literature – And Antisemitic Literature, Including Book On 'Protocols Of The Elders Of Zion', February 5, 2016).

Muhammad Yahya Khan's translation comprises 10 parts, each containing several short chapters before the 24 protocols. These 10 chapters focus on a range of historical themes. One discusses India's 1998 nuclear tests, which were soon followed by a Pakistani counter-test, allegedly despite Israeli monitoring of Pakistan's airspace on behalf on India.

The introductory part presents "Israel's enmity against Pakistan" and addresses history in order "to understand the Jewish mind" – thereby accusing the Jews of enmity against Christians and Muslims. The translator also discusses how the Hebrew term "Israel" means "to wrestle against God."
