bismillah

All praise be to Almighty Allah and peace and countless blessings of Almighty Allah be upon our beloved prophet Hazrat Muhammad, his companions and his family.

“It is the test of a good religion whether you can joke about it.” ― G.K. Chesterton

 

On January 07, 2015, several cartoonists and editors of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo had gathered in the conference room. The specialty of these people was in making mockery of political personalities through drawing cartoons. For the last decade, the magazine had concentrated its efforts trying to insult the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace and countless blessings of Almighty Allah be upon him). These people were enjoying themselves as they considered the free time given by Almighty Allah to be their victory. They were too proud of their security measures and were unaware that when Almighty Allah decides to punish, none of their helpers could come to the rescue. 7th January was the day that Almighty Allah choose to punish the culprits who had made insulting His Beloved (Peace and blessings of Almighty Allah be upon him) their life purpose.

Just as these people were breaking jokes and having happy time, fire cracker sounds were heard nearby. No body took it seriously. After a few moments a masked gunman entered the conference room. The people too proud of their security measures still though it to be some kind of practical joke, in tradition with the magazine. The incoming man started calling cartoonists be names. An identification yes and bullets would land the body of the person. The wrath of Almighty Allah had finally descended on these people. In the span of few minutes, the editor Stephane ‘Charb’ Charbonnier , his bodyguard Officer Franck Brinsolaro, the cartoonists Bernard ‘Tignous’ Verlhac, 58, Georges Wolinski, 80, Jean ‘Cabu’ Cabut, 76 and Philippe Honore, 73 lay dead. There were 12 other people related to Charlie Hebdo who died that day. Among them two were so called Muslims. Mustapha Ourrad was born in Algeria and arrived to France at age 20. He was a copy editor for Charlie Hebdo. The 42-year-old Ahmed Merabet was a police officer of Turkish descent and was protecting the building of Charlie Hebdo.

Now who were the people Almighty Allah choose to revenge the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace and countless blessings of Almighty Allah be upon him)? These were two brave lions of Islam by the names of Saïd Kouachi and Chérif Kouachi (May Almighty Allah have mercy on them). They were real brothers born to Algerian parents in Paris. Cherif was 32 while Said was 34. Their parents died in their early childhood. Therefore they were raised in foster houses for orphan children. Both were raised up in secular settings. Cherif kouachi was a good football player and had interest for music and dance. It is said that he was influenced by the pictures of inhuman treatment of Iraqi prisoner by American soldiers in the Abu Gharib jail. He tried to go to Iraq for Jihad but was captured on airport before departure. He was kept in detention for few years and when the verdict came out for his offenses he had to be released as the jail sentence had already been completed during detention.

The two brothers stormed the Charlie Hebdo building with assault rifles and finished the enemies of Islam with military precision. The followed the path of Ghazi Mumtaz Qadri Shaheed, Ghazi Amir Cheema Shaheed and Ghazi Mohammed Bouyeri. A video shows their escape car being confronted by a police car. The history of Indian subcontinent is that the person who murders the blasphemers, voluntarily presents himself to law enforcement agencies. The brothers, however, are seen come out of their vehicle and boldly charge at police to clear the escape route. It is reported that the two brothers embraced Shahadat two days later. May Almighty Allah raise their ranks in Jannat. These brothers really payed the debt of whole Ummah. It is sad that the nonsense act of mischievous cartoonists compromised the peace of the world by publishing uncalled for insults against the most respected and most beloved personality of the humankind (Peace and blessings of Almighty Allah be upon him). We Muslims are not happy at killing innocent persons but anyone who tries to insult the Holy Prophet Muhammd (Peace and blessings of Almighty Allah be upon him) commits the gravest of the crimes in our eyes. Such person is not to be allowed even a second of life. That’s it. The actions of Kouachi brothers bore fruit when another Charlie Hebdo cartoonist Rénald ‘Luz’ Luzier said, “I will no longer draw Muhammad”. He had escaped his life on 7th January because of being late to the meeting. He saw the killed bodies when he entered the office. He had psychological fits after the episode and consequently left the Charlie Hebdo. The Kouachi brothers were not the last ones who laid their lives for protecting the respect of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace and Blessings of Almighty Allah be upon him)

A sad part of this episode is the involvement of Muslims in the publishing of Charlie Hebdo whom we came to know about after the shootings. There were also many apologetic “Muslims” who made a hero out of Merabat Ahmed, saying he died protecting the people who mocked his religion. Mentioning him to be a true model Muslim. This is clearly against the teachings of Islam. Anyone who insults the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) he must be punished by death according to Shariah. The Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him) said that no one can be true Muslim until he loves me more than anything else. Where do these Muslims place themselves by mourning the death of stupid people at Charlie Hebdo? What kind of love do you have for the Holy Prophet (Peace and countless blessings of Almighty Allah be upon him). Following are the authentic hadeeth with reference from Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslima.

حَدَّثَنَا يَعْقُوبُ بْنُ إِبْرَاهِيمَ، ‏‏‏‏‏‏قَالَ:‏‏‏‏ حَدَّثَنَا ابْنُ عُلَيَّةَ، ‏‏‏‏‏‏عَنْ عَبْدِ الْعَزِيزِ بْنِ صُهَيْبٍ، ‏‏‏‏‏‏عَنْ أَنَسٍ، ‏‏‏‏‏‏عَنِ النَّبِيِّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ. ح وحَدَّثَنَا آدَمُ، ‏‏‏‏‏‏قَالَ:‏‏‏‏ حَدَّثَنَا شُعْبَةُ، ‏‏‏‏‏‏عَنْ قَتَادَةَ، ‏‏‏‏‏‏عَنْ أَنَسٍ، ‏‏‏‏‏‏قَالَ:‏‏‏‏ قَالَ النَّبِيُّ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ:‏‏‏‏ “”لَا يُؤْمِنُ أَحَدُكُمْ حَتَّى أَكُونَ أَحَبَّ إِلَيْهِ مِنْ وَالِدِهِ وَوَلَدِهِ وَالنَّاسِ أَجْمَعِينَ””.
Narrated Anas: The Prophet said None of you will have faith till he loves me more than his father, his children and all mankind.
(Sahih Bukhari, Book of Faith, Hadeeth 6.)
وَحَدَّثَنِي زُهَيْرُ بْنُ حَرْبٍ، حَدَّثَنَا إِسْمَاعِيلُ ابْنُ عُلَيَّةَ، وَحَدَّثَنَا شَيْبَانُ بْنُ أَبِي شَيْبَةَ، حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الْوَارِثِ، كِلَاهُمَا عَنْ عَبْدِ الْعَزِيزِ، عَنْ أَنَسٍ قَالَ: قَالَ رَسُولُ اللهِ صَلَّى اللهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ: لَا يُؤْمِنُ عَبْدٌ – وَفِي حَدِيثِ عَبْدِ الْوَارِثِ: الرَّجُلُ – حَتَّى أَكُونَ أَحَبَّ إِلَيْهِ مِنْ أَهْلِهِ وَمَالِهِ وَالنَّاسِ أَجْمَعِين
It is reported on the authority of Anas that the Messenger of Allah ( ‌صلی ‌اللہ ‌علیہ ‌وسلم) said:
No bondsman believes, and, in the hadith narrated by Abdul Warith, no person believes, till I am dearer to him than the members of his household, his wealth and the whole of mankind.
(Sahih Muslim, Book of Faith, Hadeeth 69)

Well Done Justice Shaukat Aziz Siddiqi

bismillahPakistan is the only country that came in to being in the name of Almighty Allah. There is no place for the form of secularism that criticizes the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace and countless blessings of Almighty Allah be upon him) behind the shield of free speech. It is relieving to see that the justice of Islamabad High Court (IHC) showed his displeasure on lack of motivation on the part of government to stop the wide spreading blasphemous contents on social media. The practice is clearly against the constitution of Pakistan and Pakistan Panel Code (PPC) mentions punishments for this crime under 295 A, B, C, . . . However the criminal practice continues as blasphemers get protection from west and their stooges, the morally corrupt politicians of Pakistan. Asia Masih Maloona is not delivered the punishment awarded by the courts of Pakistan after due judicial process. Her case has cost two lives, the precious life of Ghazi Mumtaz Hussain Qadri and the blasphemer politician Salman Taseer. The general unrest in public and issues of law and order associated with such case is a continuous problem for which government is unwilling to take action.

The honorable justice Shaukat Aziz rightly threatened to shut down the social media if the criticism of Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace and countless blessings of Almighty Allah be upon him) continues, justly declaring these blasphemers as terrorists. In fact these people are worse than terrorists and need immediate and severe punishment. According to news reports, Justice Shaukat Aziz Siddiqi had tears in his eyes while issuing the warning for those who are misusing social media to criticize the most respectable of mankind Muhammad (Peace and countless blessings of Almighty Allah be upon him).

The honorable justice Siddiqi made it clear that Pakistan would not allow for such displays of hate speech. “Why is the blasphemous content present on the social media? What steps had the government taken up in this regard so far?” the honorable justice asked. “I submit and sacrifice myself and all what I have including my parents, my life and job to the respect of Allah’s messenger … If the desecrating pages cannot be blocked, then, Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) should cease to exist,” he added. The honorable justice Siddiqi further added that social media could also be blocked for the respect of our beloved Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace and countless blessings of Almighty Allah be upon him). “Each and everything can be sacrificed for the honor of Allah’s Messenger (Peace and countless blessings of Almighty Allah be upon him). I will close entire social media, if I have to,” he said. Finally the honorable justice declared these people as terrorists because we have witnessed general unrest in society.

When Salman Taseer was killed like a stray dog after he called 295C black law, Allah forgive me, no one came out to support him. On the contrary the police constable Ghazi Mumtaz Hussain Qadri became instant hero after showering his bullets on Taseer. Even his kid son, his father and his brothers have become celebrity status in every part of Pakistan. No politician at present time has such a widespread following as does Ghazi Mumtaz Hussain Qadri Shaheed. Now all these people are not stupid. They know who is the terrorist and who spares his life for the respect of the Holy Prophet (Peace and countless blessings of Almighty Allah be upon him). The words of honorable justice were, “I hereby declare as terrorists who commit blasphemy to the holy Prophet (Peace and countless blessings of Almighty Allah be upon him).”

It is grievous to see that our nuclear powered state can do nothing about these contents. A few days back American Marines were sharing obscene photos of their female colleagues in a closed group on facebook and google+. The group was immediately closed by facebook and google on request.When US state is so concerned about the respect of their soldiers, why the state of Pakistan has no concern when people commit blasphemy. After all Pakistan was obtained in the name of Almighty Allah. It is strongly stressed on authorities that they take the cautionary words of honorable justice seriously and instruct law enforcement agencies to take action.

Pakistan Zinda Baad

 

 

Junaid Jumshed

bismillahJunaid Jamshed was a Pakistani singer who started his career in late 80s. His song Dil Dil Pakistan became a hit. JJ later became a member of Tableeghi Jamat and started preaching Wahabi/Deobandi teachings to his followers around the world. He died on 7 December 2016 when his plane(PK-661) crashed in Havelian. In 2014 an FIR was registered against him for blasphemy due to his video in which he uttered derogatory remarks and illiterate conclusion for the Mother of the Muslims Hazmat Aisha Saddiqa (May Almighty Allah be pleased with her).  Sadly Pakistan government did not take any action against him. He made a video apology for his mistake, however. Later he again used derogatory remarks for the second caliph of Islam Hazmat Umar ibne Khatab (May Almighty Allah be pleased with him) for winch protests were recorded by Scholars of Sunni Islam.

In August 2015 he participated in Chand Sitara concert by Pepsi. The program was in contrast to Junaid’s claim as an Islamic preacher. He had obscene pictures and selfies  with his non relative woman fans and former woman singer colleagues. He was in distorting the teachings of Islam. Sadly he was invited to deliver Friday sermon in the mosque of Pakistan Parliament when he died.

PK-661 flight crashed in mountainous area. Local villages gather at the site of crash and gathered the remains of deceased in their clothes. The bodies were unidentifiable. DNA tests were conducted for relatives to sort out remains. Junaid’s DNA test did not match his brother’s sample. Later his jaw was identified due to his previous x-ray history. Molana Tariq Jameel of Tableeghi Jamaal offered Janaza on his Jaw, contrary to the teachings of the Imam Abu Hanfia. Tableeghi claim to follow Hanfi fiqah according to which the Janaza is to be performed only if major portion of the body is available. In my view Junaid was distorting the teachings of Islam and needlessly criticizing the pious companions of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace and countless blessings of Almighty Allah be upon him). He got punishment in this life. What happens in the hereafter for him, Allah knows the best.

Short Introduction to Allama Khadim Hussain Rizvi

Allama Khadim Hussain Rizvi is an Islamic scholar of Sunni Brelvi school of thought. He used to deliver Friday sermons at Pir Makki Masjid, near Daata Darbar Lahore. When Ghazi Mumtaz Qadri killed Slaman Taseer, who termed 295C as black law, with 27 bullets, Allama Sahib showed open support for Mumtaz Qadri. It annoyed the government of Mian Nawaz Sharif and resulted in his job  being terminated, confiscating all benefits of a long service in the Aukaf department. Allama Sahib happily accepted this and never requested any benefits. Rather his resolve to side with Mumtaz Qadri grew stronger. Allama Sahib is a disabled person on wheelchair due to an accident some years back. Yet he is one of the most traveling evangelist,  delivering sermons in width and breadth of Pakistan.

15844893_1193011320795108_8390501078265319002_o

In January 2016 Allama Sahib organized a rally in Lahore in favor of 295C. The rally was checked by police and the attendees had to face the water cannon and baton charge. Another time Allama Sahib was captured and put to prison. Though he is in wheel chair but he was dragged and forced to stand on legs. When he entered the prison, an inspector approached him and ordered to stand for search. Allama  Sahib was unable to do it on which that cruel man pulled Allama Sahib out in demean manner. (Later Allama Sahib described that the man approached him for forgiveness of his cruel behavior. Reportedly the inspector had stroke of paralysis and is himself disabled now. Allama Sahib replied that I have done nothing to you. I even do not know you. You were performing your duty and I was performing mine.)

When Allama Sahib entered the jail he was handcuffed to his chair. A policeman would go one time at one cell and then the other and receive the reply that their is no space available. Finally they put Allama Shaib in a dirty cell the condition of which in Allama Sahib’s words is ” inhabitable even for animals”. There were cockroaches in the cell. Allama Sahib informed the cockroaches, “Do not come near me as you know I am brought here for no crime other than the love of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace and countless blessings of Almighty Allah be upon him)”.  Then the cockroaches did not bother him. Being a disabled person Allama Sahib had taken a servant with him to prison who was separated from him. Allama Sahib did not take more than a few water sips for fear that he would not be able to attend the washroom on his own.

In March of the same year Ghazi Mumtaz Hussain Qadri embraced shahadat when the government misinformed his relatives that Ghazi Sahib is suffering from illness and all family should come to meet him. On the other hand Ghazi Sahib was sleeping and at midnight he was awakened and informed that his death sentence would be executed that very night to which he replied “I am ready”. The action of Ghazi Mumtaz Qadri  and his great sacrifice are topics of Allama Sahib’s speeches.

 

On 9-November-2016 Allama Sahib organized a Fatihah prayer at the Dr. Iqbal Mausoleum Lahore. He and his followers were being restricted by the rangers deployed at his grave of Dr. Iqbal. Allama Sahib made a small speech in the shape of a dialogue with Iqbal and asked him the question why he stood up with the Ghazi Ilam ud Din Shaheed and he  is a hero but Molvi Khadim Hussain stood with Ghazi Mumtaz Qadri and he is a terrorist. Allama Sahib is included in fourth schedule, a clause to restrict the movement of highly dangerous criminals who need official permission before their movement. Allama Sahib often say, “Look I am a disabled person on wheel chair and I am on fourth schedule for my crime of standing for the respect of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace and countless blessings of Almighty Allah be upon him)”. The antiterrorism laws have started to become tools for silencing opposition.

The Brelvi thought of Islam was the only group winning public support for army’s operation against militancy in Northern Pakistan. Sadly, because Pakistan government and Pakistan Army are highly influenced by Saudi Arabian funded Wahabi thoughts, they started war against Sunnies of Pakistan. They arrested Imams and Moazzins for saying Call of Prayer “too loudly” and  for reciting Darood Sharif before the Azzan. Heavy fines were imposed on Imams of Brelvi school. By doing so Army practically tried to axe its own feet as these were the people who were giving them public support when Deobandi and Wahabi gave fatwa that army personnel dying in war-on-terror are not shaheed.

 

Quotes by Allama Khadim Hussain Rizvi

  • If someone opts to not serve the cause of Islam, Islam does not kneels before him requesting for help. Instead it empowers the weeks to stand before aggressors and awards them victory.
  • It is only Islam that honors a police constable that 6 million people attend his funeral.
  • The Islamic clerics, scholars and leaders who saved their mosques, madrasas and  turbans instead of coming out to protect the respect of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace and countless blessings of Almighty Allah be upon him), their services are no more required by Islam.
  • I can not understand clerics and Sufi visiting UK and western nations. What kind of preaching and service to Islam they do when these nations practice publishing of blasphemous cartoons and films.
  • Islam preaches peace as well as self-respect. People teach Islam is peace and mean it to give out the message:
    • O daughters of Kashmir; you can jump in river Jehlum as there is no Shah Mehmood Ghaznavi coming to save your respect from Hindus, do not expect help from us as Islam teaches peace now.
    • O daughters of Syria, no Salahud Din Ayyubi will come to save you as Islam preaches peace now a days.
    • O daughters and sons of Burma, don’t expect help from us as Islam teaches peace.
  • Ghazi Tanveer Qadri killed the qadiani (Asad Shah the false prophet) but we do not deplore his actions as our hero is one who killed 35000 qadiyanies in the Battle of Yamama. (Referring to first caliph of Islam Sayyudna Hazrat Siddiq E Akbar when his army killed followers of false prophet Musailma Kazzab)
  • The judges of supreme of court refused to accept eleven verdicts of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace and blessings of Almighty Allah be upon him) representing the view blood of blasphemy committer goes wasted and no qisas or blood money punishment for his killer. (Referring to judicial murder committed by the supreme court of Pakistan in case of Ghazi Mumtaz Qadri Shaheed)
  • The judges of supreme court laughed and said, “Is it possible for someone to hurt Allah?”, when the following verse was presented to them, ان الذين يؤذون اللہ ورسولہ لعنہم اللہ في الدنيا والآخرۃ واعد لہم عذابا مہينا (الاحزاب-57). It is the worst thing that can happen in Islamic Pakistan. It is the result of counterfieted version of Islam preached by us clerics and guides.
  • O Rulers, It is understandable that daughters of Kashmir, Burma and Syria have no rights on you but what happened in case of Dr. Afia Siddiqi. She is Pakistani and sentenced to 80 years of prison for a crime she did not commit. Why can’t you help her either. You could not do so much as to write a letter for pardon request ot Obama. (Referring to a video clip by Afia’s lawyer stating that Obama administration had shown signs that they might pardon Afia at end of Obama’s presidency if Pakistan Government request so. But according to her Sharif brothers even failed to do so. It is even more shameful that Afia’s sister Dr. Fozia Siddiqi states that Nawaz party had promised her mother to help for release of Dr. Afia Siddiqi. )
  • O people do not be afraid of villians. Islam does not take lives of your sons. If it ever does, it pays in full values. Islam took the life of Ghazi Mumtaz Qadri but raised him to such high honor. Six million people attended the funeral of a mere police constable despite road blockage, petrol pumps shut down and media boycott and various other mean tricks used by the government.
  • There is just one punishment for whoever tries to disrespects our most respectful Prophet Muhammad (Peace and countless blessings of Almighty Allah be upon him). That is decapitation!
  • There is no problem of harmony between the Christians and the Muslims. Either take me to Yohanna abad or take a Christian in front of me. We have no animosity. When it is time of my arrival, the Christian sweeper lady comes to my car as she knows I would give some money to her. There is absolutely no case of persecution of Christians. However if someone talks bad words about our beloved Prophet (Peace and countless blessings of Almighty Allah be upon him), he can not remain alive.
  • On the day of conquest of Mecca, the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace and blessings of Almighty Allah be upon him) found a bitch with cubs in the path of his ten thousand followers. He instructed a man to stand by her and divert the followers so as no one mistakenly harms her or her cubs. On the other hand a blasphemer poet by name of Abdullah ibne Khattal was killed in the Holy Kabba when he tried to get protection in its curtains. (Blasphemy is such a big crime that not even Kabba protects such a person. Had he came to the the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace and countless blessings of Almighty Allah be upon him) asking for forgiveness he would surely have met a different fate as it happened to Ka’b bin Zuhayr.)

Labaik Ya Rasool Allah Rally in Lahore: Allama Khadim Hussain Rizvi arrested

LAHORE 05-Jan-2017: Allama  Khadim  Hussain Rizvi got released on Thursday. A large number of followers gathered in Masjid-E-Rehmatul-Lil-Alameen, Multan Road Lahore where he arrived after Maghrib prayer. Rose petals were showered on him along with passionate slogans of Labaik, Labaik, Ya Rasool Allah (صلی اللہ علیک وسلم) Labaik. After Isha prayer a ceremony started with recitation of Darood Sharif on seeds to welcome the Allama Sahib and other Muslims who were arrested the day before.  After that leaders of the Tahrik-R-Labaik Ya Rasool Allah (صلی اللہ علیک وسلم) and arrestees made speeches.

One speaker informed that Police indiscriminately arrested all people wearing a beard. Some Deobandi and Wahabi people were also locked up along with the rally people. Those people kept on requesting that they were arrested by mistake as they were not part of the rally. A very interesting situation arose when inspector came in the morning and asked those people to stand up who were not part of the rally. Then some people stood up. Upon this inspector said that he just wanted to see the perfect Muslims but had no plan to free them sooner anyway.

Sweets were distributed among the participants while the process of welcoming arrestees kept on. Allama Khadim Hussain Sahib informed that he were offered to be released on Wednesday night but he refused to go unless all arrestees are freed first. After assurance from the authorities that every one will be freed, he accepted his release. All arresstees were welcomed with slogans and Allama Khadim Sahib hugged every one in admiration.

15844893_1193011320795108_8390501078265319002_oLAHORE 04-Jan-2017: Allama Khadim Hussain Rizvi has been arrested in Lahore. He was returning to Lahore from Karachi to lead the Labaik Ya Rasool Allah rally. The rally was organized in response to the annual vigil held by Civil Society Network Pakistan in liberty roundabout. The rally was planned to start from Kalmah chowk and end at Liberty roundabout. The police had earlier closed the area with containers. The peaceful workers of Tahreek e Labaik Ya Rasool Allah (صلی اللہ علیک وسلم) were arrested in large numbers after shelling and baton charge. Protests started against brutal use of force in Lahore and Karachi. In Lahore the protest place was near Babu Sabu motorway interchange under leadership of Allama Farooq ul Hassan. Meanwhile protesters recorded sitdown before Karachi Press Club.

The way rally has been handled is shameful for our democratic government. There are countless statements by our politician that peaceful protest is right of every citizen. Why this right is not granted to Tahreek Labaik Yarasool Allah (صلی اللہ علیک وسلم) participants?

Asia Bibi: Supreme Court of Pakistan to decide in accordance with the law of the land as it exists and not according to western wishes

bismillah

Aasiya, better known as Aasiya Maloona (the cursed one) in Pakistan, is a Christian woman sentenced to death for blasphemy. When her coworkers refused to drink water offered by her, she used harsh words about the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace and blessings of almighty Allah be upon him) and the Holy Quran.  The Christian organizations and online forums have portrayed her case as example of general prosecution of religious miniorities in Pakistan. After citing her poor family and children condition, state shared by millions of poor Pakistani Muslims as well, the criticism is diverted towards the blasphemy laws, portraying how “cruel” the laws are to convict such a poor woman. A new idea is to hit foundations of Pakistan and the two nation theory by crying how miltant and fundamentalist Pakistan has turned as opposed to “secular” values held by the founder of Pakistan Muhammad Ali Jinnah.

What they forget to mention is that Jinnah fought with both the British and the secular Indian National Congress to obtain a land for Muslims which could be a “laboratory of Islamic principles”. Prior to independence in 1947, Muhammad Ali Jinnah defended a youth Ghazi Ilam Ud Din Shaheed in court who had murdered a publisher responsible for publishing a blasphemy book. The thinker of Pakistan Allama Muhammad Iqbal, too, praised Ghazi Ilam Ud Din and also Ghazi Qayuum Shaheed, another youth who killed a blaphemer in a court in Karachi. Equal citizenship does in no way mean free ticket to hurl hatred or disrespectful words towards our beloved The Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him).

Respect and love of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) is at the core of belief of a Muslim. Smallest criticism of the Prophet (Peace be upon him) raises intense unrest among Muslims. The Muslim people in general are very silent and patient and often shun courts even to claim their legitimate rights. However the respect of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace and blessings of Almighty Allah be upon him) is a different matter. Thery are ready to sacrifice everything for this cause. On the contrary western people are very much concerned about their personal rights but have no respect for their religious matters. That is why we can never understand each other on these issues.

Often it is claimed that Mr. Zia Ul Haque, a military dictator of Pakistan through 1980s, is responsible for stricter version of blasphemy laws. Though it is partially true but he implemented the said amendments to pacify the public demands. The blasphemy laws were later challenged in supreme court and were vetted to be inline with constitution. The court even cancelled the life imprisonment under 295C PPC,  keeping death sentence the only punishment.

The provincial minister for miorities of Punjab Government Mr. Tahir Sindhu has represented her case in Punjab High Court and would also be representing her in the supreme court of Pakistan. He hopes for her acquittal as the date for her case hiring in supreme court is approaching fast, the 13th October 2016. The pope Benidict XVI demanded for her pardon during a sermon and stated that he had mystical links with Aasiya Noreen. While there is a collected effort of western nations to mount pressure on Pakistan to acquit the maloona, more of the pressure is directed towards criticising the blasphemy laws of Pakistan. Two top Pakistani politicians lost their lives for campaigning against the blaphemy laws. Despite their efforts the public opinion is still highly in favour of these laws as these provide a safegaurd. Otherwise people would start killing the accused in extrajudicial way.

Aasiya Maloona hails from a village Ittanwali near Nankana Sahib, Pakistan. She used to pick falsa from the gardens owned by one Mr Muhammad Idrees. On 14 June 2009 she had an argument with her Muslim coworker girls. According to her statement as described in the session court she narrates that, “Mafia Bibi and Asima Bibi quarreled with me over fetching water which was offered by me to bring for them but they refused saying that since I am christian, so, they never took water from the hand of Christian. Over this quarrel was insued and some hot words were exchanged between myself and the ladies.” We find the nature of those hot words by going through the session court and the high court verdicts where the eyewitnesses accounts are presented.

The facts as summarised in the court verdict for the complaint lodged by Qari Muhammad Saalam, “On 14.6.2009, Asia Bibi, a Christian Preacher along with several other ladies including Mafia Bibi, Asma Bibi and Yasmin of the village was plucking Falsa (Grewia/purple berry), in the field belonging to one Muhammad ldrees where Asia Parveen uttered derogatory remarks against the Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) by stating that (Maaz Allah) the Prophet of the Muslims fell ill one month prior to his death and the insects nourished in His mouth and ear. She further stated that your Prophet (PBUH) married Hazrat Khadija (R.A) just for her wealth and after looting the same, she was deserted by Him. She further stated that Holy Quran is not the book of God but a man-made book. The ladies narrated the matter to the Qari Muhammad Saalam and others. On 19.6.2009, the complainant along with Muhammad Afzal, Mukhtar Ahmad, sent for Asma Bibi etc and Aasia Bibi and inquired from her who confessed her guilt in a public meeting.”

  • 16-10-2014: High cour maintains the punishment delivered by lower court.

  • 13-09-2016: Supreme court to hear the appeal of Aasia.

The case is a test for the supreme court of Pakistan whether it maintains justice inline with the laws of the country and the Islamic values or submits to the western pressure. As blasphemy law is currently in enforcement, the respected judges “…are obligated to decide this case in accordance with the law of the land as it exists and not in accordance with what the law should be.” as per their statement in case of Ghazi Mumtaz Qadri Shaheed.
There are millions of Christians in Pakistan but they are never persecuted in any way. Committing blasphemy is a different matter altogether. Do not abuse Islam and disrespect the Prophet of Islam Muhammad (Peace and Blessings of Almighty Allah be Upon Him) and you are safe and respected otherwise we can not tolerate whatever your religion, creed or skin color is. In general it may well be said that condition of Christians is much better as a minority in Pakistan than that of Muslims in western nations. I may quote the incident of Marwa El-Sherbini who was murdered in a German court by a sick mind and police shoot her husband instead while he was trying to help her. We heard the news of western people getting frustrated at sight of burkini and hijab. Dr. Aafia Siddique was given a severe punishment after very unjust judicial proceedings. These incidents put many of the western objections unjust.
