Pakistani Lawyers Praise Mumtaz Qadri, Murderer... by SalimJanMazari

Malik Mumtaz Hussain Qadri, the bodyguard arrested for the killing of Punjab Governor Salman Taseer, shouts religious slogans while being taken away by police after he was presented at a court in Islamabad. -Reuters Photo : Lawyers shower roses for governor's killer LAHORE: Lawyers showered the suspected killer of a prominent Pakistani governor with rose petals when he arrived at court Wednesday and an influential Muslim scholars group praised the assassination of the outspoken opponent of laws that order death for those who insult Islam. Mumtaz Qadri made his first appearance in an Islamabad court, where a judge remanded him in custody a day after he allegedly sprayed automatic gunfire at the back of Punjab province Gov. Salman Taseer while he was supposed to be protecting him as a bodyguard. A rowdy crowd slapped him on the back and kissed his cheek as he was escorted inside. The lawyers who tossed handfuls of rose petals over him were not involved in the case. As he left the court, a crowd of about 200 sympathizers chanted ''death is acceptable for Muhammad's slave.'' The suspect stood at the back door of an armored police van with a flower necklace given to him by an admirer and repeatedly yelled ''God is great.'' More than 500 clerics and scholars from the group Jamat Ahle Sunnat said no one should pray or express regret for the killing of the governor. The group representing Pakistan's majority Barelvi sect, which follows a brand of Islam considered moderate, also issued a veiled threat to other opponents of the blasphemy laws. ''The supporter is as equally guilty as one who committed blasphemy,'' the group warned in a statement, adding politicians, the media and others should learn ''a lesson from the exemplary death.'' Jamat leader Maulana Shah Turabul Haq Qadri paid ''glorious tribute to the murderer ... for his courage, bravery and religious honor and integrity.'' Mumtaz Qadri told interrogators Tuesday that he shot the liberal Taseer multiple times because of the politician's vocal opposition to the harsh blasphemy laws.

(2007) ‘Suicide bombers given go-ahead ISLAMABAD: The spokesman for the Lal Masjid administration, Maulana Abdul Qayum, told The News on Tuesday that suicide bombers of the Lal Masjid had been granted permission to find targets on their own and strike wherever they choose to. “In fact, that has already been done. It was previously decided that if we came under attack, then we will give this permission (to the suicide bombers to strike). So, they have been given permission to strike anywhere at any time,” Maulana Abdul Qayum told The News late on Tuesday from Lal Masjid. He said that at first the Lal Masjid administration had demanded that these people (Rangers) should go away from here. “We said that they should be evacuated from here. We demanded that these buildings (where Rangers have taken up positions) should be vacated and they should go back. We said that once they go back, we would control our Taliban. But they (the government) did not agree to all this,” he claimed. Maulana Abdul Qayum said that the situation had become critical. “Fifteen of our Taliban and two Talibat have been martyred and 60 to 70 others have been injured. Still the firing from their side is continuing. They are also firing tear gas shells,” he claimed. To a question, he said the Lal Masjid Taliban and Talibat were only defending themselves. “We have not started all this. They brought these Rangers and made them sit on our heads. They imposed all this on us. They have to stop firing. From our side, it has been already stopped,” he said. About the peace move initiated by Maulana Shah Abdul Aziz, he said the MNA from Karak negotiated with the government and announced that an agreement had been reached for a ceasefire. “But, on the other hand, the government continued to fire on us. The MNA talked with the chief commissioner but these soldiers were not accepting it and continued to fire.” He said he could not tell what would happen in the future. “We don’t know what is going to happen. We have already announced that our campaign is peaceful and we want to work peacefully. They brought these Rangers and they were preparing for so many days. So, it is up to them if they want to bring peace back,” he said. REFERENCE: ‘Suicide bombers given go-ahead’ by Mobarik A Virk Wednesday, July 04, 2007

Imran Khan on Fascist Pakistani Liberal Scums & Lal Masjid

Imran Khan on Fascist Pakistani Liberal Scums... by SalimJanMazari

Anti-talks Taliban ‘to face armed Imran’ LAHORE: The extremist groups not ready to come to the negotiations table would be facing Imran Khan in a gunfight if one goes by the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf chairman's statement given at a party function here on Sunday. "If the Taliban groups not in favour of talks continue their terror hits to derail the peace process, they'll find me armed standing by the armed forces," he told the maiden meeting of the PTI Punjab Council here. Reiterating his opposition to army operation in North Waziristan, he said it would badly hurt 700,000 innocent tribesmen, expressing fear that the victims would also take up arms and become Taliban. Mr Khan denied the impression that the statement in support of the operation had been given to keep the PTI's popularity intact. "I'm not after vote bank rather I take decisions by my conscience." He said the PTI was the first to promote dialogue with the Taliban and the ceasefire announced by the Taliban vindicated the party's stance that dialogue should be the first option. The party never asked that those who wanted any lenience for those who wanted to rule the country at gunpoint but it did propose to isolate those who wanted to talk from those who didn't, he said. "I'd be ready to counter those who would dare to implement Islam at gunpoint," Mr Khan said. REFERENCE: Anti-talks Taliban ‘to face armed Imran’ 2014-03-03 12:31:55 Imran Khan’s Dollar Addiction

Ugly Role of Pakistani Media, Pervez Musharraf & Lal Masjid (2007)

Ugly Role of Pakistani Media, Pervez Musharraf... by SalimJanMazari

Lal Masjid has 10,000 suicide bombers: Abdul Aziz by our correspondent Thursday, May 31, 2007  ISLAMABAD: The Lal Masjid administration has more than 10,000 suicide bombers on the mosque premises and more than one lakh across Pakistan, claimed Khateeb of Lal Masjid, Maulana Abdul Aziz. “The suicide attackers are ready to operate anywhere/anytime in Pakistan,” he said at a press briefing at the Lal Masjid on Wednesday evening. “We consider suicide attacks are right in Pakistan in few circumstances, while we consider them as absolutely justified in the context of Afghanistan and Iraq,” he said. “Our students enjoy the moments when a police or Rangers operation looms, and they get bored when the situation normalises,” he said of the situation inside Lal Masjid. He said, “We favoured the Taliban not only in the past, we favour them even today.” Responding to a question that the strategy adopted by the Lal Masjid administration to solve different problems was helping Musharraf’s agenda to bring liberalism in the country and that analysts think that the clerics were operating on the direction of agencies and basically helping the regime to achieve its agenda, he said it was totally wrong. “We are not operating under the command of some agency, and I am ready for ‘Mubahela’ in this regard,” he added. He said the Musharraf government was not taking any advantage to fulfil its agendas from the actions of the Lal Masjid. However, at this moment Aziz’s younger brother Maulana Abdul Rasheed Ghazi took the mike from him and further elaborated the answer saying, “Sometimes it happens. Someone takes advantage from some action, which is actually not aimed to support him.” He said: “When we were fighting against the USSR, the US had taken advantage of the situation. Our struggle against the USSR was not aimed to benefit the US, but they took an indirect advantage of our struggle.” He also cited the example of the war of Muslims against Persia which indirectly benefited the Romans. Aziz also disclosed that Gen (retd) Hamid Gul had told him during a conversation that according to the Constitution, any citizen of Pakistan can play the role of a ‘law officer’ if he observes some illegal activity somewhere and not find law-enforcement authorities there. The Lal Masjid cleric said that not a single finger was cut during their peaceful movement. Asked why the administration did not do something for the poor and depressed class of society and confined its version of Islam to CD shops and brothels, the cleric said they could not do anything for improving the condition of the poor with their resources. However, they could stop people from doing wrong. “We are doing what we can do,” he added. REFERENCE: Lal Masjid has 10,000 suicide bombers: Abdul Aziz by our correspondent Thursday, May 31, 2007
