Misuse of Blasphemy Law & Takfiri Mullahs of Pakistan - Part - 2

LAHORE: Thousands of people on Sunday rallied in Lahore against any proposed amendment to the blasphemy laws and unanimously vowed to defend the “Namoos-e-Risalat” (sanctity of the Holy Prophet PBUH) at any cost. The leaders threatened to stage a long march if any change was made to the blasphemy laws. The rally started from Nasser Bagh and concluded near the Faisal Chowk, a few yards away from the Punjab Assembly building. Carrying banners, flags and placards, participants of the rally chanted vociferous slogans against the government’s alleged plan to amend the blasphemy laws, and demanded death penalty for the blasphemy convicts.

The brothers of two young men killed by an American consulate employee, Raymond Davis, also participated in the rally. They addressed the gathering and demanded the trial of the accused under the Pakistani laws. Addressing the rally, JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman urged the government to clarify its position on the issue of Namoos-e-Risalat without any delay. He termed the government an American agent and warned it of Tunisia and Egypt like revolts in the country. He cautioned the ‘extremist forces’ of the West that if they did not stop their war against Islam, they would have to face its consequences. He advised the newly appointed Punjab governor to visit Mumtaz Qadri in jail to show solidarity with the Muslims of Pakistan. He announced holding a public gathering in Peshawar on Feb 20.

Jamaat-i-Islami Ameer Syed Munawwar Hasan said on the occasion if the blasphemy laws were amended, neither parliament nor the rulers would survive. He said the revolutionary wave sweeping the Islamic world currently could not be kept away from Pakistan, as situation here was also ripe for a change. The JI chief said after the 9/11 incident, the US had been planning to impose a new world order all-over the world, but the Islamic movements had frustrated its designs. The US wanted to disband madrassas and religious education, but its plans have been frustrated by the religious parties in Pakistan, he added. Munawwar said it was only because of cowardice of the Pakistani rulers that the Americans were killing innocent Pakistanis in our streets. Jamaatud Dawa leader Hafiz Muhammad Saeed said he would like to ask the European Parliament and Pope Benedict the reasons for abolishing the blasphemous laws. He said laws are made to maintain law and order in society. How the abolition the Namoos-e-Risalat act will help maintain law and order in Pakistan, he asked. He called for making an international law for protecting the sanctity of all prophets of God. He asked the government to expel the ambassadors of those countries from Pakistan which were involved in blasphemy acts. Hafiz Saeed believed that Afghanistan, Kashmir and Palestine would be freed soon from the clutches of oppressed forces. PML-N leader Ch Pervaiz Elahi promised that his party would not sit in the assemblies if the government tried to pass any bill against Namoos-e-Risalat. “We curse the assembly that dares amend the Namoos-e-Risalat (PBUH) law, and our party will be the first to quit such an assembly,” added Pervaiz Elahi. PML-N leader Khwaja Saad Rafique, addressing the rally, said his party assured the religious community that Tahaffuz-e-Namoos-e-Risalat was not aimed at victimising any particular community but protecting the sanctity of Holy Prophet (PBUH). He asked the PPP leadership to join hands with the Tehreek-e-Tahaffuz-e-Namoos-e- Risalat. He said Nawaz Sharif told the American ambassador that the issue of Raymond Davis would be decided by the courts when he called on the PML-N leader. Quaid-e-Millat-e-Jafferiya Allama Sajid Naqvi said all schools of thought agreed on the Namoos-e-Risalat Act. He advised the government to accept the demands, put forward by the Tehreek-e-Tahaffuz-e-Namoos-e-Risalat. He asked the government to clear its stance whether they wanted to amend the law or not.

PML-Z leader Ejazul Haq said on the occasion the rally was a proof that nobody could repeal the Namoos-e-Risalat act. Tanzeem-e-Islami Ameer Hafiz Akif Saeed said foreign authorities were working on an agenda of maligning the Islamic identity of the country by abolishing the Islamic laws. “They succeeded in repealing the Hadood Ordinance. Now they are trying to abolish the Namoos-e-Risalat act and after this they would go for removal of constitutional clause regarding non-Muslims,” he added. Ataul Memon asked the parliamentarians and lawyers of the country to pass resolutions in their respective bar associations against the efforts made by government to make changes in the Namoos-e-Risalat act. JUI-F central leader Hafiz Hussain Ahmad warned the leaders if American Consulate employee was released, people would besiege the American Embassy and the Aiwan-e-Sadr. Allama Ibtisam Elahi Zaheer said some liberal and secular scholars, on behalf of the government, were trying to create an impression that Islam would not be affected by abolishing this act. He warned these elements of staying away from commenting on these issues. Wafaqul Madaris President Qari Muhammad Hanif termed the Namoos-e-Risalat act the jugular vein of the Muslims. Allama Sajid Mir believed death was the only punishment for the blasphemers. Maulana Abdul Gaffoor Haidery asked MNA Sherry Rehman to seek Allah forgiveness for speaking against the blasphemy laws. Maulana Samiul Haq advised the party workers to launch a movement for ‘independence’ of Pakistan from American oppression as the country had been turned into an American state. Maulana Ilyas Chinioti, Maulana Ilyas Ghumman, Ameer Hamza, Sahibzada Pir Abdur Rahim, Qari Zawar Bahadur, Maulana Amjad, Maulana Ajmal Qadri, Hafiz Abdul Gaffar Roparri and Abul Khair also asked the government to clear its position on the proposed amendments to the blasphemy laws.

LAHORE: Police as well as the Joint Investigation Team set up by the federal government to investigate January 4 assassination of governor Salman Taseer are in a sticky situation how to quiz the two clerics who had allegedly instigated the self-confessed assassin to commit the murder. The Rawalpindi trial court has already granted them pre-arrest bails besides rejecting the investigators’ plea for their custody. Mumtaz Qadri had admitted in his confessional statement that he was actually provoked for the murder by the fiery speeches of two Rawalpindi-based clerics Mufti Hanif Qureshi Qadri and Imtiaz Hussain Shah. According to Qadri’s confessional statement, Mufti Hanif Qureshi, the ameer of a Rawalpindi-based Barelvi religious outfit, Shabab-e-Islami Pakistan and Imtiaz Hussain Shah, the imam of a Rawalpindi-based Amna Masjid, had described Salmaan Taseer a “Yazeedi governor” in their December 31, 2010 speeches at a public meeting in Rawalpindi organised by the Shabab-e-Islami .

The clerics were trying to convince the listeners, while citing certain verses of the Holy Quraan that Taseer was worth killing (Wajibul Qatal) for having committed blasphemy by labeling the blasphemy law a black law. During their speeches, the clerics narrated an event of blasphemy committed by a woman during the rule of Hazrat Abu Bakar Siddiq, the first Caliph of Islam, saying, “The governor of the area where the woman lived awarded punishment to her over the act of blasphemy. As she approached the Caliph, seeking mercy, the latter decided against her and ordered that her teeth to be broken and fingers and tongue be cut for having committed blasphemy”. As the Rawalpindi-based investigators were flexing their muscles to detain the two clerics for interrogation, Hanif Qureshi and Imtiaz Shah launched a preemptive offensive to counter any move against them. While resorting to street agitation, the two clerics staged a demonstration in Rawalpindi on January 7, to ‘pay homage’ to the assassin of Taseer. The rally culminated at the Muslim Town residence of Malik Mumtaz Qadri. The participants of the rally were chanting slogans and carrying banners and placards, inscribing pro-Qadri slogans and describing him a “Ghazi”.

Condemning the government for Qadri’s arrest, Hanif Qureshi, who also leads Friday prayers at the Jamia Rizvia Zial Uloom in Rawalpindi, praised the killer for having killed a ‘blasphemer’. He further said: “Ghazi Malik Mumtaz Qadri did this for the love of our beloved Prophet Mohammad (Peace Be upon Him). The man who called the Blasphemy Law a black law was bound to meet this end and he should not be called a martyr but a blasphemer. And Mumtaz Qadri should not be called a killer but a “Ghazi” (one who leaves the battle victorious).” Keeping in view the street power shown by Hanif Qureshi and Mumtaz Shah, the investigating agencies became defensive and decided to seek court orders for the arrest of the two clerics instead of detaining them on their own. The investigators were of the view that the arrest of the two fanatic mullahs without seeking court orders could trigger nationwide protests by their followers.

However, on January 17, 2011, an Anti Terrorism Court (ATC) in Rawalpindi refused to issue warrants for the arrest of the two clerics for the purpose of interrogation about their speeches during which they had reportedly justified killing of any blasphemer. Having heard arguments from both the sides, ATC Judge Malik Akram Awan, refused to issue the warrants on grounds of incomplete evidence. Two days later, on January 20, the ATC judge granted pre-arrest bails to Hanif Qureshi and Imtiaz Shah against surety bonds worth Rs200, 000 each. The counsel for the clerics argued before the ATC judge that his clients were not at all involved in motivating Qadri and the FIR also did not mention their names. Under these circumstances, the Rawalpindi police as well as the Joint Investigation Team are simply unable to question the suspects who have refused to cooperate in investigations of the case. The authorities will have to wait for the expiry of their pre-arrest bails before proceedings against them any further. REFERENCE: Agencies probing Taseer murder in a fix By Amir Mir Monday, January 24, 2011 “The judgement of apostasy and expelling someone from the religion is only appropriate for the people of knowledge who are firmly grounded in knowledge, and they are the judges in the various Sharee’ah law courts, and those who are able of giving legal verdicts. And this is just like the other matters, and it is not the right of every person, or from the right of those who are learning, or those who ascribe themselves to knowledge, but who have deficiency in understanding. It is not appropriate for them to make judgements of apostasy (upon others). Since, mischief will arise from this, and sometimes a Muslim might be judged as an apostate but he is not actually so. And the takfir of a Muslim who has not committed one of the nullifications of Islaam contains great danger. Whoever says to his brother “O Kaafir” or “O Faasiq”, and he is not like that, then the words will fall back upon the one who said them. Hence, the ones who actually judge with apostasy are the legislative judges and those who are able and fit for giving legal verdicts. And as for those who enforce the judgements they are the leaders of the Muslims (wullaat al-amr). As for whatever is other than this, then it is mere confusion.”

Barelvi Mufti Muneeb ur Rehman's Fatwa against Saudi Arabia & Deobandis.


“Meting out the punishments is only appropriate for the leader of the Muslims and it is not for every person to establish the punishment, since confusion, and corruption necessarily follows from this, and also the cutting off of the society, tribulations and provocations occur. Establishing the punishments is appropriate (i.e. befits only) to the Muslim leader. The Prophet (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) said, “Pardon each other for the punishments that are between you, but when the execution of the punishment reaches the [authority of the] Sultaan, then Allaah curses both the one who seeks intercession and the one who grants the intercession [i.e. to revoke the punishment]”. And from the responsibilities of the Sultaan in Islaam, and from those matters that befit him is the establishment of the punishments after they have been established legislatively, via the Sharee’ah law courts, upon the one who fell into the crime for which the legislator has designated a specific punishment, such as for stealing. So what has been said is that establishing the punishments (i.e. meting them out) is from the rights of the Sultaan, and when the Muslims do not have a Sultaan amongst them, then they should just suffice with commanding the good and forbidding the evil, and calling to Allaah, the Might and Majestic, with wisdom, good admonition and arguing with that which is best. And it is not permissible for individuals (in the society) to establish the hudood, since that, as we have mentioned, will bring about chaos, and also provocations, and tribulations will arise, and this contains greater corruption than it contains rectification. And from amongst the Sharee’ah principles that are submitted to is, “Repelling the harmful things takes precedence over bringing about the beneficial things”.
