2011: Taseer killer's case should be decided as per Shariah law: JuD Lahore, Fri Jan 07 2011 Pakistan-based terror outfit JuD has asked the country's courts to decide the case of Punjab Governor Salmaan Taseer's assassin in line with the 'Shariah' or Islamic law and 'sentiments of Muslims'. Jamaat-ud-Dawah leader Maulana Amir Hamza, who is convener of Tehrik-e-Hurmat-e-Rasool that has been opposing any move to amend the controversial blasphemy law, also hailed the clerics who refused to lead the funeral prayer of Taseer. Taseer, the Governor of Pakistan's most populous province of Punjab and senior PPP leader, was gunned down by his extremist bodyguard Mumtaz Qadri at a posh market in the heart of Islamabad on Tuesday for opposing the blasphemy law. Hamza asked courts to decide the case of Qadri in accordance with the Islamic law and the "sentiments of Muslims" of the country. "The courts must respect our sentiments," he said in a statement. The clerics, who refused to lead Taseer's funeral prayer on Wednesday, had proved that they had great respect for the Prophet Mohammad, Hamza said. "God will reward you (clerics) for your brave act," he said. After an influential grouping of scholars and clerics of the Barelvi school of thought asked Muslims not to offer or lead the funeral prayer for Taseer, the clerics of three mosques in Lahore, including the one at the Governor's House, refused to lead the 'namaz-e-janaza'. The prayer was finally led by a member of the PPP's clerics' wing. Hamza also criticised the US and European countries for condemning the murder of Taseer. The JuD leader also warned PPP lawmaker Sherry Rehman to immediately withdraw a private bill submitted to Parliament to amend the blasphemy law. He made it clear that "no one can think of changing the blasphemy law". Blaming Taseer for his death, Hamza questioned why the Governor had sought clemency from President Asif Ali Zardari for Asia Bibi, a Christian woman sentenced to death for allegedly insulting Prophet Mohammed. "We want to tell everyone that there can be no debate on the blasphemy law," said Hamza of JuD, which is blamed for the 2008 Mumbai attacks.

The Pure Faith Part I Eman e Khalis Ghar K Chiraagh by Dr. Capt. Masooduddin Usmani - Mullahs condemn everybody of Blasphemy whereas Mullah Books are full of such Blasphemous Material . http://www.4shared.com/office/3XRn7HFg/Eman_e_Khalis__Ghar_K_Chiraagh.html
In his Excellent Book, Pure Faith (Emaan-e-Khalis - Ghar Kay Chiragh) APPLES OF EYES, Ex-Captain Late. Dr. Masood-ud-Din Usmani, M.B.B.S (Lucknow) Fazil Uloonm-e—Diniyah Wifaqul Madaris Multan, wrote, Likewise, when the occasion came to testify their terms of Suhuv and Sukur then arguments were adduced for these self-designed terms by upholding the false allegation leveled by Jews and Christians, polytheists and hypocrites on the holy prophets For example, Ali Hajveri alias Dam Gun] Bukhsh accepted verbatim, in his book Kashful Mahjoob (Unveiling the Hidden) the calunmies imputed on the honour of the Prophet David (as.) and the Prophet Muhammad (saw.) and showed proof that it all was the outcome of Suhuv and Sukur. It is written in the Bible, which is regarded as the Holy Scripture of Christians and Jews, that the Prophet David (as.) did see from the from the proof of his palace wife of Uriah Hittite taking bath nakedly and fell in love with her. And then committed adultery with her. And when she got impregnated he sent her husband Uriah Hittite for waging war against Banu Ammoon and ordered the army chief to depute Uriah at such place that he might not survive. And when Uriah was ultimately killed the Prophet David (a.s.) got married with his wife formally And after his marriage she gave birth to the Prophet Solomon (a.s) even in less than six month`s period (Bible, Book-II, Samuel, Chapter ll-12). Allah forbids! lmputing their two beneficent prophets David and Solomon (as.) with these false slanders, Jews have inscribed them in their Holy Scripture till the Doomsday, And the other calumny which the hypocrites, Jews and polytheists of Arabia had imputed to the honour of the Prophet Muhammad (saws) was that when Zainab-bint-e-Jahash (ra) (who was the daughter of his real aunt) was under marriage of Zaid-bin-Haritha (ra) the Prophet (saw.) has seen her in stripped condition and had fallen in love with her (Allah Forbids) ! We seek refuge in Allah) he then made Zaid (r.a.) divorce her and thereafter got her married with himself Believing these two calumnies leveled by infidels and hypocrites on the Prophet David (a.s.) and the Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.) to be correct in his book Kash/ix] Muhjoab, Ali Hajveri established his concept of Suhuv and Sukur.
THE HELLISH FURNACES OF SUHUV AND SUKUR
When the Divine action tends towards the slave the slave gets established with himself and when the action of slave inclines to Divinity the slave gets established with Divinity. Therefore it so happened that the look of the Prophet David (a s.) went to there where it should not go namely a woman who was wife of Uriah whom he saw and she was illegitimate for him. And when the slave got established with Divinity such as the Holy Prophet (s.aw ) that his look also went to the same thing (in the same way) i e on Zaid’s wife, but that wife got illegitimate for Zaid for the reason that that look of the Prophet David (a s.) was in the state of Suhuv and this look of the Holy Prophet (s a w.) was in the state of Sukur. [p.349, Kalamul Manrghuab. Urdu Translation of of Kashful Mahjoob by Ali Hayen alias Data Ganj Bakhsh] Let anybody apprise for Allah’s sake as to what is all? Will not even the persons of prophets remain to be infallible? This too is asserted that there spread "religion"in this Sub—continent through these very persons. Yes. The religion spread of—course but not that Koranic religion which the Holy Prophet (saw.) has brought but that Allied Religion which produced on AIIah’s land thousands and millions of those Compound Entities in the form of Common Values which sometimes became Deity by ascending and sometimes began servitude by descending to the position of slave.
lf they did ever advance with the knowledge of the Koran and Hadith then just with ulterior motive that the true and Un—alloyed Religion could be proved through exegesis and composition as the Allied Religion And today this very Allied Religion is rife everywhere. It is also said that there were many of them who defended the religion of Allah and fought against the kings and monarchs of their time. It is not denied that there took place clashes with the contemporary rulers but these sufferings were not undergone for defence of Allah’s religion but for protection of their Common Values, Those who do not even believe in the monotheistic religion of Allah at all. how will they burn their boats and put their lives at stake for it? It has been the extent of influence of this Allied Religion aher its invention that there will be found-out very few such scholars in the past centuries who could have fully represented the Koranic Monotheism.
And as regards the Indo—Pak Sub-continent, here passed not a single man of knowledge who might not have been impressed with this Allied Philosophy. For this very reason even the sect which is involved in the least badness of faith in this country [Ah/-e-Ilndirh sect rs alluded rrere] that too is corrfourrded with two outright flaws of faith due to this very Allied Philosophy. Although this sect shook-off all those persons which are emulated with Allah, but about the Prophet (saw.) it abode by this very belief that even after his demise he is alive in his grave and if anybody, reaching there, offers Salat-0-Salam, he himself hears it. And for this conclusion they reason that false and fabricated Ravayat wherein exists Muhammad bin Mawan Suddi Saghir Al-Kalbi who was declared by all traditionalists as Kazzab and concoctor, and after reporting this rrvayut Imam Uqaili wrote that Laa-Aslu-Lahu [it is baseless]. The other void belief of this sect is that "some angels are appointed for this job that they may convey directly to the Prophet ” The most lying man lt is the superlative degree of Kazab i e. liar.

History Extrajudicial Murders, Deaths in Jail, and Suicide by Blasphemy Suspects
So far, I could find nearly 51 cases wherein blasphemy suspects were either extra judicially murdered or died in jail. The plea taken by the supporters of the blasphemy law at the time of its introduction and even to this date is that this law is to provide legal means for handling blasphemy cases. The history of events show an opposite result since the introduction of this law.
Blasphemy Law Extra Judicial Killings
Dr. Masooduddin Usmani Exposes Blasphemous Barelvis-Deobandis.
ISLAMABAD: Pakistani judges are often pressured to convict people accused under the country’s blasphemy laws that call for the death penalty for anyone insulting Islam, a special UN representative said Tuesday. Gabriela Knaul, the UN’s Special Rapporteur on the independence of judges and lawyers, told a news conference that lawyers are also reluctant to defend clients accused under the blasphemy laws because of intimidation. Pakistan’s blasphemy laws call for the death penalty for anyone insulting Islam, its holy book or the Prophet Muhammad. Pakistani Christians live in fear of being arrested under the laws, which critics say are often misused to settle personal scores or family feuds. ”I am especially concerned regarding cases brought under the so-called blasphemy law as it was reported to me that judges have been coerced to decide against the accused even without supporting evidence,” Knaul said. ”They are afraid of reprisals by local communities because of their interpretation of the law,” she added. Lawyers who represent people accused in such cases are often targeted and not able to properly represent their clients, she said. Last year, two prominent Pakistani political figures who spoke out against the blasphemy laws were killed in attacks that raised concerns about the rise of religious extremism in Pakistan. Liberal politician Salman Taseer was shot and killed by one of his own guards in January 2011, and in March 2011, militants gunned down Shahbaz Bhatti, the only Christian in Pakistan’s government. Knaul made the comments as she was wrapping up an 11-day trip to Pakistan looking at the country’s judicial system. She praised Pakistan’s progress since the end of the military dictatorship that once ruled the country but pointed out a number of areas for progress. Knaul said she was concerned about working conditions for many lower-level courts, which often operate without electricity, water or proper sanitation. The United Nations official pointed out the lack of women in the Pakistani Supreme Court, and the threats of violence often faced by lawyers across the country.

The UN special rapporteur urged the government to apply jurisdiction of highest courts enshrined in the Constitution to the whole of Pakistan since many could be deprived of their constitutional rights. She avoided elaborating her observation when asked, but said she believed that “a uniform legal system enshrined in the Constitution is necessary in order to avoid ambiguities and discrepancies in the administration of justice”. In the preliminary report, Ms Knaul said that the recognition of another superior higher court, the Federal Shariat Court, in the Constitution has created an ambiguity. “The existence of two superior courts in the Constitution is problematic and leaves space for interpretations which might be contradicting,” she believed. The UN special rapporteur expressed concern over cases brought under blasphemy law for which she used the term ‘so-called’ and explained that judges had been coerced to decide against the accused even without supporting; as for the lawyers, in addition to their reluctance to take up such cases, they were targeted and forced not to represent their clients properly. In addition, judges, prosecutors and lawyers working on cases related to terrorist acts and organised crime were also often the target of serious threats and attacks from various actors, including non-state actors, she said. As part of her mission, the UN special rapporteur paid attention to the integration of a gender perspective and women’s rights in the justice system, and expressed concern that there were currently no women sitting on the Supreme Court and only two women in the high courts. Ms Knaul said that she was further struck by reports of existing laws, such as the blasphemy law, being misused to target women and strip them off of their fundamental rights. Many stages of the justice system, starting with filing a case with the police, to accessing lawyers and appearing and testifying before courts, were gender-biased, and therefore impeded the full functioning of justice for women, she said. She expressed deep concern over the poor quality of investigations carried out by police service.

Former CJ LHC Khawaja Sharif defends Mumtaz Qadri in High Court
ISLAMABAD: A reported statement by Lahore High Court Chief Justice (CJ) Khawaja Muhammad Sharif that the Hindu community was funding terrorism in Pakistan, irked members of the National Assembly, as many of whom joined minority members and walked out in protest. The lawmakers also demanded Chief Justice of Pakistan Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry take suo motu notice of the CJ’s remarks. Ramesh Lal, a minority lawmaker from the Pakistan People’s Party, raised the issue on a point of order and censured the CJ’s remarks, saying the Hindu community in Pakistan was as patriotic as the rest of the country and the remarks were highly uncalled for. Lal announced a token walkout and was joined by a few other members belonging to different parties, including the Awami National Party. He said the remarks hurt the over three million Hindus in Pakistan, adding the statement was against national unity. Labour and Manpower Minister Khursheed Shah tried to defend the CJ, saying he could not have made such a statement and might have referred to India and not the Hindu community. staff report REFERENCE: LHC CJ’s remarks irk NA members Wednesday, March 17, 2010 http://dailytimes.com.pk/default.asp?page=2010%5C03%5C17%5Cstory_17-3-2010_pg7_6
BARELY days after the Punjab chief minister was caught playing to the Taliban gallery, another high official from the province is in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons. This time, Lahore High Court Chief Justice Khawaja Mohammad Sharif has sparked outrage for reportedly saying that Hindus were responsible for financing acts of terrorism in Pakistan. The remarks came while the judge was hearing two identical petitions against the possible extradition of Afghan Taliban suspects. It may well have been a slip of the tongue by Mr Sharif, who might have mistakenly said `Hindu` instead of `India` — nevertheless it was a tasteless remark to say the least. Although such remarks warrant criticism what makes them worse is the position of the person who makes them. These sort of comments are the last thing one expects to hear from a judge, that too the chief justice of a provincial high court. What sort of message are we sending to our minorities, as well as to the world, when the holder of such a respected public office makes comments that come across as thoughtless? The Hindu members of the National Assembly walked out of the house on Tuesday to protest the remarks. The members said the comments had hurt the feelings of Pakistani Hindus — and there is no doubt that they had. As it is, Pakistan scores quite poorly when it comes to treating minorities fairly. Remarks such as these put our already marginalised minorities in an even tougher spot, as the patriotic credentials of non-Muslims living in this country are put into question. Though foreign elements may be involved in terrorist activities within Pakistan, maligning a whole community based on its faith is totally unacceptable. Before making such tactless remarks, our public figures should consider how much they dislike it when others equate Muslims with terrorism. A member of the National Assembly quite correctly advised our judges to concentrate on the dispensation of justice in Tuesday`s session. In the meantime, one hopes that Justice Sharif explains his comments. REFERENCE:Tactless remarks Dawn Editorial Thursday, 18 Mar, 2010 http://archives.dawn.com/archives/32510
ISLAMABAD, March 16: It was a rare, judge’s turn to be judged in the National Assembly on Tuesday as Hindu members staged a walkout to protest at reported remarks by the Lahore High Court (LHC) chief justice alleging Hindu financing of terror attacks in the country. Some members of the Awami National Party too joined the first walkout against the judiciary in Pakistan’s parliament before the protesters were brought back to hear words of sympathy for the injured sentiments and some advice for judges to focus on delivering justice rather than publicity despite a government minister’s statement that the remark by Justice Khawaja Mohammad Sharif while hearing a case in Lahore on Thursday seemed to be “a slip of the tongue”. The protest was the second raised in the house over press reports in as many days after sharp criticism of Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif over his appeal to Taliban in a speech to a seminar in Lahore on Sunday to spare his province terror attacks because of some shared views with his PML-N party. PPP’s Hindu member Romesh Lal, who raised the issue, said sentiments of an estimated four million Pakistani Hindus had been injured by the LHC chief justice’s remarks, as reported in a section of the press, that while terrorist bomb blasts were being carried out by Muslims, “money used for this came from Hindus”. The member said if a country was suspected of sponsoring such attacks it should be named, but blame should not be put on just Hindus who, he said, were as good patriots as other Pakistanis. While drawing attention of President Asif Ali Zardari and Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani to what he called worry caused to Hindus, he appealed to Supreme Court Chief Justice Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudhry to take suo motu notice of Justice Sharif’s remarks. As Inter-Provincial Coordination Minister Pir Aftab Shah Jilani and some other members of the ruling PPP went out of the chamber to persuade the protesters to return, party chief whip and Labour and Manpower Minister Khurshid Ahmed Shah told the house the judge seemed to be blaming India for financing the Taliban rather Hindus, adding he was sure a clarification would come “by tomorrow”. PML-N’s Rashid Akbar Niwani said judges should devote to dispensation of justice instead of seeking publicity as he also advised the media to exercise “restraint”, particularly blasting unspecified television anchorpersons who, he said, should also be held accountable for their earnings together with “heads of (government) institutions” as often-maligned elected politicians.
