Khariji mullahs threaten Nawaz Sharif with fatwa of kufr (apostasy) in retribution of his statement on Ahmadis; they also term Ahmadi massacre in Lahore as an Ahmadi conspiracy against Islam and Pakistan
Pakistan’s opposition leader and chief of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz Group (PML-N) Nawaz Sharif has been censured by clerics of different religious parties as Mr Sharif spoke in friendly terms about the Ahmadi sect.
Mr Sharif was expressing solidarity with the Ahmadis who came under a bloody attack by terrorists of Taliban / Sipah-e-Sahaba on Friday May 28, 2010, leaving over 90 of them dead and scores of others injured.
In a statement on Saturday June 06, 2010, in Lahore, Mr Sharif expressed commiseration toward the Ahmadi community, calling them “our brothers and sisters” and an “asset for Pakistan”.
This set orthodox Muslim clerics on fire since mullahs were able to pressurize Pakistan parliament in 1974 to declare Ahmadis as official non-Muslims, and many mullahs and their followers look on them as “traitors”.
Mr Sharif at once came under verbal attack from the Wafaqul Madaris al Arabia, a madrassah association of Deobandi sect, which stated that Mr Sharif should be ashamed of calling Ahmadis as our brothers. The Wafaqul Madaris al Arabia statement mentioned Ahmadis as “traitors” and “infidels” and stressed that they could not be the brothers of Muslims. It warned Mr. Sharif to revoke his statement.
Other religious parties also expressed resentment over Mr. Sharif’s statement. Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI) president Maulana Sami-ul-Haq even threatened that his party would launch a countrywide protest if Mr. Sharif did not retract his statement.
In the latest development, a leading mullah of India declared that if Nawaz Sharif does not revoke his statement on Ahamadis, he will be deemed an infidel. Mufti Habibur Rehman Ludhianwi advised Nawaz Sharif to repent for calling Qadianis (Ahmadis) as his brothers and sisters. Mufti said that Qadianis are non Mulsims and no Muslim is allowed to have any relationship with them. He also said that if Nawaz Sharif did not repent, he will be considered as an apostate.
What is Nawaz Sharif’s crime (or sin)?
He declared Ahmadis as our brothers and sisters and as an asset for the country.
Why are mullahs upset?
Because they are rabid dogs; their only aim is to create hatred and mischief (fasaad) in Pakistan and the wider world.
Here are some examples of mullahs’ reaction to Nawaz Sharif’s statement:
Nawaz should seek pardon for giving pro-Qadianis statement: Wafaq-ul-Madaris
ISLAMABAD: The religious leaders of the Wafaq-ul-Madaris Arabia on Sunday said that Mian Nawaz Sharif should not give pro-qadiyanis statements, as the Qadiyanis are disbelievers of the last Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) and seditious to Islam.
Religious scholars including Maulana Salim Ullah Khan, Maulana Qari Hanif Jalandhari, Maulana Dr. Abdul Razzaq and Maulana Anwar-Ul-Haq while expressing their reactions against the statement of Mian Nawaz Sharif regarding Qadianis said that he should not betray the masses for his political interests and should request pardon to Allah. Declaring Qadianis an asset, who are the traitors of Islam and the country, reflects ignorance of Nawaz Sharif, they added.
They said that the Qadianis are disbelievers of the finality of Prophet hood of Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) and the enemies of Muslims, adding that they cannot be the brothers of Muslim till they do not embrace Islam and seek pardon for their past to Allah. The Qadiyanis always subverted the constitution, parliament and judiciary of Pakistan and they did not miss any opportunity to harm Islam and Pakistan.
The religious scholars said that Nawaz Sharif should withdraw his dubious statement and seek pardon from Almighty Allah.
Sharif’s statement on Ahmadis angers clerics

Wafaqul Madaris al Arabia asks PML-N chief to retract his statement
ISLAMABAD: Top leaders of an organisation representing Deobandi madrassas across the country have reprimanded PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif for calling members of the Ahmadiyya community as “brothers” of Muslims.
“Sharif should be ashamed of calling them brothers of Muslims,” said a statement issued by the Wafaqul Madaris al Arabia (WMA).
Sharif said in Lahore on Saturday that Ahmadis were as important citizens of Pakistan as people from other religions and called them an asset.
He made the statement to express solidarity with the Ahmadiyya community following last month’s two synchronised attacks on their places of worship in Lahore which claimed more than 80 lives with many more injured.
In a statement issued here on Sunday, leaders of the Wafaqul Madaris al Arabia – an umbrella organisation of more than 12,000 Deobandi madrassas – called Ahmadis “traitors”.
WMA leaders Maulana Salimullah Khan and Qari Hafeez Jahalindri urged Sharif to retract his statement and advised him not to “defy religion for petty political gains.”
The statement termed the Ahmadis as “infidels” and said that they could not be brothers of Muslims until they convert to Islam again.
Ahmadis were declared a minority under the 1973 constitution – a move that some people believe intensified hatred against Ahmadis.

Ripples in political, religious circles
Sharif’s comments on the Ahmedis drew sharp criticism from religious parties like Khatm-e-Nabuwat Movement, Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam and Jamaat-e-Islami.
Maulana Ilyas Chinauti, the head of KNM, which has been at the forefront of the movement against Ahmedis,said Sharif should seek “forgiveness from Allah and the people of Pakistan for calling the Ahmedis his brothers”.
“Ahmedis are traitors and they deserve no sympathy whatsoever. Nawaz Sharif is trying to please the US by showing sympathy for Ahmedis,” he said. Sharif had hurt the feeling of all Muslims and KNM would stage protests till he apologised, he said.
JUI president Maulana Samiul Haq said his party would launch a countrywide protest if Sharif did not take back his statement.
Jamaat-e-Islami leader Farid Paracha said it was unfortunate that the PML-N had started toeing the line of the US. Paracha said Ahmedis could never be “brothers or friends” of Muslims and a “true Muslim must not develop any relation with Ahmedis”. PTI

Attack on Ahmadis was a conspiracy: MTKN
June 09, 2010
LAHORE: Leaders of Muttahida Tehrik-e-Khatm-e-Nabuwat said on Wednesday that Lahore attacks were a conspiracy to repeal laws against Ahmadis, reported BBC Urdu.
Maulana Zahidul Rashdi, founding member of the organisation, read a joint statement at the meeting’s conclusion that said that the attack on Ahmadis is being used to create suspicions about the concept of Khatm-e-Nabuwat i.e. Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) being the last prophet.
The meeting that took place in Muslim Town, Lahore, included members of 13 religious and political organistations including JUI-F, Jamaat-ud-Dawa and 11 others.
Just a few days back, religious leaders had shown their contempt for Nawaz Sharif’s statement where he referred to the Ahmadi community as brothers.
‘Attack on Ahmedis conspiracy to repeal laws against them’
Wednesday, 09 Jun, 2010
LAHORE: A gathering of the leaders of 13 religious and political parties in Lahore claimed that the attack on Ahmedis on May 28 was part of a conspiracy to repeal the laws against them, BBCUrdu reported.
The meeting was held in an office of the Majlis Ahrar Islam in Lahore’s Muslim Town. The parties concluded that a conspiracy was in place to debate the laws against Ahmedis, the report said.
Maulana Zahidul Rashdi, who is a founding member of the Muttahida Tehrik-i-Khatm-i-Nabuwat and also the Secretary-General of the Pakistan Shariat Council, read the joint statement at the meeting’s conclusion: The attack on Ahmedis is being used as an excuse to generate suspicions regarding the concept of khatm-i-nabuwat.
The gathering was attended by leaders of the Jamaat-i-Islami, Jamiat-i-ulema-i-Islam Fazlur Rahman group, Jamaatud Dawa and Markazi Jamaat-i-Ahl-i-Sunnat among others.
During the meeting, Maulana Ilyas Chinioti, a member of the PML-N and the Punjab provincial assembly, condemned Nawaz Sharif’s statement in which he had sympathised with the Ahmedis and called them his brothers.
The meeting’s participants demanded that Nawaz Sharif immediately withdraw his statement.
How do critical Pakistanis (not blind followers of rabid mullahs) think about mulllahs’ stance against Nawaz Sharif?
Here is a selection of comments from pkpolitics:
Whatever Ahmadis have done for the countries they call their home, they have done so for the love of that country and no other reason.
And as far as Islam is concerned, i would very much like to know what glorious contributions any mullah or his supporter has made. Other than spreading hatred, promoting discrimination, justifying violence and loudly proclaiming their intolerance for all that are not like them that is.
The stupidity of the mullas of course knows no bounds. To wish peace upon a stranger (salam) is no crime, and neither is it a crime to consider somebody a brother.
These bearded monkeys are not conerned about an insult to islam. They are concerned with nothing other than a perpetuation of their own power. There is no greater threat to their power than a group of people who refuse to consider themselves non-muslims and also refuse to be cowed by the mullahs.
They fail to realize that their very existence, their promotion of hatred and violence and their shameless profiteering off the faith of others is the greatest blasphemy against islam.
If we can get rid of all fasadi moulvis this country would be a better place and I say much better place to live. These fasadi moulvis are the BIGGEST FITNA within our religion and today wahtever negative happening with Islam is because of these fasadi moulvis. They issue ceritificates of Kafor day in day out.
Now they are calling NS a kafir even NS has provided these moulvis considerable support in the past and even today NS and his party have close links with some banned militant groups. Nawaz Sharif made political alliances with Jamat Islami in the past but soon realised his mistakes and kicked out Jamat Islami from the alliance. Now he keeps distance from Jamat and their fanatical moulvis.
Question: What is the biggest fitna in Islam?
Answer: Jamat Islami
1-they are better pakistanis than you and me because not only were they born in this country but also chose to call it their homeland despite all the opposition and problems that they had to face here!
2-They are our brothers because they speak, walk, talk , think, feel like us 99.9% and if for instance I go abroad and need help or want to socialize there then 10 out of 10 times I would prefer a “Qadyani, “Hindu”, “Christian” PAKISTANI over artificial and text books brotherhood of Saudis, Afghans, Turks, Egyptians etc! 😉
to all mullahs and their supporters:
The sad part is that there is genuinely no difference between you preaching your exclusion of non-muslims and the dumba$$ redneck in Texas preaching “white supremacy”.
You are both devoid of love and compassion, you are both incurably dogmatic and you are both incapable of understanding that the world has moved beyond black and white and can now be viewed in technicolor.
one can only withhold love and compassion if one is at heart a small and hateful person.
You are so caught up in the whole affiliation thing that you are completely and utterly blind to the rest of humanity.
But don’t worry.. nobody can force you to befriend a non-muslim, nor would anybody wish to.
Thankfully you belong to the minority of people whose faith is guided by fear, hatred and a completely misplaced sense of superiority.
You are at heart a non-muslim. I say that because in your “perfect muslim society” a despicable caste system dividing muslims and non-muslims will be a reality. And you will sit on your brahman like perch and look down upon all others who are not of your caste. what a terrible shame. But it’s thankfully only your loss.
Anyhow go ahead and preach your hateful stupidity to your heart’s content. I have complete faith that humanity is better than your hatred thank god.
@ all the people sensible enough to see the idiocy of the mullahs:
It matters not what you believe, what you worship and what you call yourself. As long as your faith makes you compassionate enough to open your heart to those who belive differently, you are blessed.
In case you haven’t realized, the mullahs are the biggest galvanizing force for ahmedis. For every bit of stupidity uttered by the mullahs, more and more people become ahmedi.
Mullahs have been persecuting ahmedis for more than a century, yet have utterly failed to make any difference to the faith of the community. They have succeeded in establishing pakistan as a hub of intolerance towards minorities indeed, but only the muslims lose on that account.
Mullahs are the most disturbing symptom of the decay that has beset the ummah. Were the mullahs declawed here the way they were in turkey, Pakistan would have been miles ahead of turkey. Yet instead we languish at the brink of failure. Gee thanks ole mullah buddies.
You ask :
How are the MULLAH promoting hatred, violence, shameless profiteering off the faith of others ?
Fatwahs to kill, mob lynchings egged on by mullahs, preaching hatred and enmity towards other sects and religions, demanding the suppression of women, claiming the right to decide who’s righteous and who’s not and a passive approval of the inhuman violence perpetrated by their jihadis. These are all ways in which they promote hatred and violence. If you are stupid enough to not see that or ignorant enough to blame it on the jews well then so be it. Doesn’t change the facts.
A useful suggestion by a fellow blogger
Qadyanis are our brothers and countrymen
Hindus are our brothers and countrymen
Christians are our brother and countrymen
Every Pakistani (irrespective of his cast, creed, religion) is our brother and as much a citizen of pakistan as we are!
I think every pakistani should utter these words and force these “Dariyal Mullas” to declare every one of us “Kafir” until they find themselves as the minority and have to run for their lives in front of a so-called “kafir” majority!
Only then this self-appointed divine brigade could feel the music of being a helpless minority (who they blackmail every now and then)!
Kafir kafir, khariji mullah kafir, jo na manay, woh bhi kafir
