Boycott Daily Jang, Geo and Dawn News Networks

Allama Khadim Hussain Sahib has instructed all Muslmans to boycott Jang and Dawn group. Here goes the transcript of his video message.

After today no Muslman should watch the Geo channel. Of course, those who recite the Kalama of Rasool Allah (Peace and countless blessings of Almighty Allah be upon him) and believe in Khatame Nabuwwat of the Prophet (Peace and countless blessings of Almighty Allah be upon him), should spit on it.  Now for fourteen days it is spreading false propagenda, “Why did Molvies sit here?”. Now just see what becomes of your rating, slaves of rating. We have been patient so long, now you must understand. Just observe your rating now. You may keep contorting money from Christians and Jews but every slave of Rasool Allah (Peace and countless blessings of Almighty Allah be upon him) would say, “I spit on you, curse be on you”. Curse on Dawn news as well.

Listen, Listen, Listen

Dawn News. Beware! no Muslman should watch it. Dawn News, Geo News, both, your daughters in home should neither watch them. Spit on them. They are proud of their ratings but the slaves of the Muhammad the Arabian (Peace and gillions of blessings of Almighty Allah be upon him), though centuries have been passed, are enough self respecting to click away if these channels appear while rotating channels. In the morning you will know well your ratings. No Muslman should watch any of these two channels. This is message for the whole world. We have been patient for so long. For seven years these channels are barking against the respect-of-the-prophethood. Include the daily Jang too. Reject complete Jang group. Beware! no muslman should buy Jang newspapers. We can live without news. If we can live without bread, what is the significance of jang news.

Slogans:

See See who comes?

Religion Comes (Unanimous response from gathering)

Though Allama Sahib instructed only the boycott of Jang and Dawn groups, the so called liberal activists started the false propaganda that he instructed to attack these channels. No he is not like Imran Khan and other political lot attacking the rival channels.

 

A twitter activist  Pakistan Media Watch using the handle @PakPressWatch  with slogan, “No to blackmailers in Pakistani media. Ex staffers of ET/Dawn/Jang/Nawa-i-Waqt. Defend honest journalism. DM us to share confidential information & news” opted to write boycott & attack both channels to incite hate against Allama Khadim Hussain Rizvi sahib. A shameful and dishonest addition, counter productive to the just cause of journalists.

Islamic Justice: The Story of Sultan Murad and a Mason

This is a poem by Dr Mohammed Iqbal about the Islamic justice system. He narrates an incident from the life of Sultan Murad. Allama Khadim Hussain Rizvi often cite this poem to exemplify the role of Muslim rulers.

بُود معماری ز اقلیم خجند
در فنِ تعمیر نامِ اُو بلند
There was an architect from the area of Khujand (in present day Tajikistan). He had high acclaim in his art.

ساخت آن صنعت گرِ فرہاد زاد
مسجدی از حکمِ سلطان مراد
That skilled artist, on par with Farhad, built a mosque by the order of Sultan Murad.

خوش نیامد شاہ را تعمیر اُو
خشمگین گردید از تقصیر اُو

گفت ای پیغامِ حق گفتارِ تو
حفظ آئین محمدؐ کارِ تو
He said, ”O, you who preach the true words of Allah, you who are pointed to protect the constitution of the Holy Prophet Mohammad (Peace and countless blessings of Almighty Allah be upon him)”.

سفته گوش سطوت شاهان نیم
قطع کن از روی قرآن دعویم
I am not a slave to the king. Decide between us accordint to the Holy Quran

قاضی عادل بدندان خستہ لب
کرد شہ را در حضور خود طلب
The just Justice nipped his lips under his teeth and summoned the king in his Court

رنگ شہ از ہیبت قرآن پرید
پیش قاضی چون خطا کاران رسید
The face of king became colourless from fear of the Holy Quran. The accused was brought before the Justice.

از خجالت دیدہ بر پا دوختہ
عارضِ اُو لالہ ہا اندوختہ
With shame his gaze was fixed on his feet and his face turned red like tulip.

یک طرف فریادیٔ دعویٰ گری
یک طرف شاہنشہِ گردوں فری
On one side there was the poor appellant. At other side was the powerful king.

گفت شہ از کردہ خجلت بردہ ام
اعتراف از جرمِ خود آوردہ ام
The king accepted his guilt, “ I am ashamed of my act. I confess to my crime”

گفت قاضی فی القصاص آمد حیات
زندگی گیرد باین قانون ثبات
The Justice decreed, ”The life is in Qisas. The life sustaines through this just law”

عبد مسلم کمتر از احرار نیست
خون شه رنگین تر از معمار نیست
“A slave Muslim is not infirior to a free one. The colour of king’s blood is not redder than the blood of the mason”.

چوں مراد این آیۂ محکم شنید
دست خویش از آستین بیرون کشید
When Sultan Murad heard the rule from verse of the Holy Quran, he drew his hand out of sleeve and offered it to be cut off.

مدعی را تابِ خاموشی نماند
آیۂ بالعدل والا حسان خواند
The appellant could not keep his silent and recited the verse of justice and kindness from the Holy Quran.

 

گفت از بہر خدا بخشید مش
از برائی مصطفی بخشید مش
He said, ”I forgive for the sake of Almighty Allah, I forgive for the sake of the Holy Prophet Mohammad (Peace and countless blessings of Almighty Allah be upon him)”.

یافت موری برسلیمانی ظفر
سطوتِ آئینِ پیغمبر نگر
Thus an ant overpowered the King Salman of his time. Just observe the power of the law of Holy Prophet (Peace and blessings of Almighty Allah be upon him).

پیشِ قرآن بندہ و مولا یکی ست
بوریا و مسندِ دیبا یکی ست
In front of the Holy Quran, the man and the slave are one, the rough clothes and the silk wear is same

Tehreek Labbaik Ya Rasool Allah (TLY) to contest NA-120

The Prime Minister of Pakistan Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif has been disqualified by Supreme Court verdict. He had been elected member-national-assembly (MNA) from Lahore constituency NA120. After the dismissal Mian Nawaz Sharif nominated his younger brother Mian Shahbaz Sharif to be the next Prime Minister. Because Mr Shahbaz Sharif is currently the chief-minister (CM) of Punjab, the most populous and prosperous province of Pakistan, he has to contest in by election being held in NA120. Pakistan tehreek-e-insaf is also contesting here with their candidate Dr Yasmin Rashid. She was a candidate in the general elections of 2013 as well but lost to Nawaz Sharif.

TLY
Sheikh Muhammad Azher Rizvi has been nominated by Tehreek-E-Labaika Ya Rasool Allah to contest the election from NA-120 against PMLN Mian Shehbaz Sharif

The chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-E-Insaf Imran Khan  did most of the effort to get Mian Nawaz Sharif disqualified.  Therefore PTI has a good chance of giving tough time to PMLN.  At the same time we see a new  political party by the name of Tehreek Labbaik Ya Rasool Allah (TLY) entering as new unknown to the equation. TLY emerged from an old compaign by the name of Tehreek-E-Rehay Ghazi Mumtaz Qadri.  When PMLN expideted the execution of Ghazi Mumtaz Hussain Qadri Shaheed, the name was changed to Tehreek Labbaik Ya Rasool Allah. PLMN had always enjoyed a good support from right wing Islamist population due to its adherence to ideology of Pakistan, the two nation theory.  After the execution that support has dwindled. Large portion of their voter is annoyed at the hypocrisy of PMLN. Tehreek-E-Labbaik Ya Rasool Allah represents those people. It is to be expected that it would cause a big dent in vote bank of PMLN.  After the nomination of a candidate from TLY in NA120, Sheikh Muhammad Azher Rizvi, PMLN has addition to its worries.  With left wing voters going to PTI and right wing going to TLY, PMLN would have hard time finding a spot. The worst case scenario could be the defeat for would be Prime Minister Mian Shahbaz Sharif.  This defeat would be the last  nail in the coffin of  PMLN and  the 35 years rule of  Sharif family, In Sha Allah. The mere nomination of a candidate by Allama Khadim Hussain Rizvi has rang danger alarms in Sharif camp. There are calls from PMLN ministers to Shahbaz Sharif to abort the NA-120 election and continue “good administration” in the Punjab province.

Short Introduction to Allama Khadim Hussain Rizvi

Namaz E Janaza of Hazrat Ghazi Mumtaz Hussain Qadri (May Allah by pleased with him) Shaheed

The merit of present decision of Supreme Court has been criticized a lot.  Surprisingly the verdict in case of Ghazi Mumtaz Hussain Qadri Shaheed was celebrated all over the world despite glaring technical flaws.  For instance in case of  Mumtaz Qadri the supreme court decided blasphemer Salman Taseer did not mock 295C as black law.  This note is so disturbing and ignorant with recorded interview of Salman taseer available on YouTube and the printed copies of his another interview to newsline. Could we ignore all those intense  protests against Salman Taseer?  He had shown support for  Asia Maluna mocking the verdict of Lahore High Court. All his actions were infuriating they public of Pakistan.  Clearly he was going against the Islamic ideology of Pakistan.  Eventually Mumtaz Hussain Qadri had to  deliver him a dog’s death knowing no culprit has ever been sentenced by the state under PPC 295-C.

 

The slide of Sharifs from powerful leaders to frightened politicians after the execution of Ghazi Mumtaz Hussain Qadri is an eye opener. Despite playing the victim card, dismissal of Nawaz Sharif did not observe any public support.  It is to be hoped that Sharif family would get due punishment for their unjust actions.  They angered Almighty Allah, they angered the people of Pakistan, they broke the confidence of the voters. Hopefully PMLN would soon be a part of history. May Almighty Allah  help Pakistan in its becoming a prosperous democratic Muslim Nation. Allah Hafiz.

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.

Short Introduction to Allama Khadim Hussain Rizvi

Allama Khadim Hussain Rizvi is an Islamic scholar from Sunni Brelvi school of thought. He used to deliver Friday sermons at Pir Makki Masjid, near Daata Darbar Lahore. When Ghazi Mumtaz Hussain Qadri Shaheed killed Slaman Taseer (The governor of Punjab 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 with Aukaf (اوقاف) department. Allama Sahib happily accepted this punishment for speaking his mind out and refused later attempts of government to pay his dues and job offer for his son. His resolve to side with Mumtaz Qadri grew only stronger. Allama Sahib is a paraplegic on wheelchair due to an accident few years back. Despite his physical conditions he is one of the most traveling scholar,  delivering sermons in width and breadth of Pakistan.

In January 2016 Allama Sahib organized a rally in Lahore in favor of 295C. The peaceful rally was attacked by police and the attendees subjected to water cannon and baton charged. Allama Sahib has been home arrested and imprisoned several times for raising his voice in protection of blasphemy laws and Khatam-E-Nabuwwat clauses of constitution of Pakistan. Though his lower body is paralyzed, 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 comply 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 a disabled person now. Allama Sahib replied that I have done nothing to you. I even do not recognize you. You were performing your duty and I was performing mine. ‘The masters we work for, they are not unaware of our situation’ , or in Urdu: “جن مالکوں کا ہم کام کرتے ہیں وہ دیکھ رہے ہیں”)

When Allama Sahib entered the jail he was handcuffed to his chair. A policeman carried him to several cells to convince him no space is 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)”.  The cockroaches did not trouble him. Being a disabled person Allama Sahib had carried a servant with him to prison who was separated. 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 corrupt government of Mian Nawaz Sharif misinformed Ghazi Sahib’s relatives that he is in critical condition and all family should visit him. In the mean time Ghazi Sahib was sleeping in his cell. 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 bold action of Ghazi Mumtaz Qadri and the great sacrifice he made in jail 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 grave. 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 be considered a hero but Molvi Khadim Hussain stood with Ghazi Mumtaz Qadri and is taken as a terrorist. Allama Sahib is included in fourth schedule, a clause to restrict the movement of highly dangerous criminals who need to inform of their movements. Allama Sahib often say, “Look I am a disabled person on wheel chair and I am on fourth schedule for my crime being taking a stand for the respect of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace and countless blessings of Almighty Allah be upon him)”. The anti-terrorism act has started to become a tool to silence opposition. The application of ATA is highly questionable as these were used in minor road rage incidents by hon’able judges.

The Brelvi majority of Pakistan 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 Brelvies of Pakistan. 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 for breech of ethics that prohibit saying prayers in praise of Muhammad (Peace and countless blessings of Almighty Allah be upon him). By doing so Army practically tried to axe its own feet as these were the only people who garnered unconditional public support for anti-terrorism operations when Deobandi and Wahabi gave fatwa that army personnel dying in war-on-terror are not Shaheed. Sadly one cleric head of a religious political party even went so far to say a dog is Shaheed but a soldier is not.

 

Quotes by Allama Khadim Hussain Rizvi

  • If someone opts to not serve the cause of Islam, Islam does not kneel before him for help. Instead it empowers the weak to stand before aggressors and awards them victory.
  • It is only Islam that honors a police constable that 6 million people attended his funeral.
  • The Islamic clerics, scholars and leaders who saved their mosques, madrasas and  turbans instead of coming out to save the respect of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace and countless blessings of Almighty Allah be upon him), their services are no more wanted 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, may almighty Allah be pleased with him, 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) when the blood of blasphemers went wasted and no qisas or blood money punishment was imposed on killers. (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 mocked, “Is it possible for someone to hurt Allah?”, when the verse was recited 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, the clerics and the peers (spiritual 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 to Obama. (Referring to a video clip by Dr. Afia’s lawyer stating that Obama administration had shown signs that they might pardon Afia at the end of Obama’s presidency 2nd term if Pakistan Government requested. According to the lawyer  Sharif brothers even failed to do so. It is even more shameful that Afia’s sister Dr. Fozia Siddiqi claims that Nawaz had promised her mother to help Dr. Afia Siddiqi in release. )
  • O people do not be afraid of villians. Islam does not take lives of your sons. If it ever does, it pays in full value. Islam took the life of Ghazi Mumtaz Qadri but raised him to such a high honor. Six million people attended the funeral of a mere police constable despite motorway and road blocks, petrol pumps shut down, media boycott and various other mean tricks used by the government.
  • There is just one punishment for whoever tries to disrespect 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 bring a Christian in front of me. We have no animosity. When it is the time of my arrival, the Christian sweeper lady comes to my car as she knows I would give 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.”

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.
