Former PM Gillani: Pir Mehar Ali Shah’s ‘holy mission’ to defeat Qadianis was completed by Bhutto

Pakistan’s recently ousted premier Yousuf Raza Gilani reportedly addresses an anti-Ahmadi rally organized by a splinter faction of Khatima-e Nubuwwat movement, the infamous extremist hate group operating in various parts of Pakistan.

The conference, held in the town of Golra Shareef near Rawalpindi, was to commemorate the anti-Ahmadiyya activities of the group’s now deceased religious leader, Pir Mehar Ali Shah, who during his life, launched several campaigns aimed at destroying and denouncing of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community and its leaders.

Mr. Gilani attended the Golra Shareef Khatim-e Nabuwat conference on behalf of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), it was reported.

Mr Gilani, according a news bulletin carried by the local Aaj TV channel, praised the anti-Ahmadi works of Pir Mehar Ali Shah and noted the actions of his own political party’s founder Zulfiqar Ali Bhtto in this regard.

ZA Bhutto, who served as a prime minister of Pakistan during the seventies, enacted a constitutional amendment declaring Ahmadis as non-Muslims.

The 1974 amendment was passed with great fanfare celebrating a special cooperation between liberal and Mullah groups in Pakistan.

As a direct result of the anti-Ahmadiyya constructional amendment, the scholars say, the Ahmadis became a unique sub-group of 2nd class citizens in Pakistan.

Mr. Gilani said that Pir Mehar Ali Shah’s ‘holy mission to defeat Qadianis was completed by Bhutto Shaheed (martyr),’ the TV channel reported.

Bhutto, now considered a martyr by the party loyalists, was sentenced to death after his conviction on charges of ordering the murder of a political rival during his premiership in the 70’s.

‘Qadiani’ is a derogatory term used by extremist to describe Ahmadi Muslims because the community’s 19th century founder, Mirza Ghulam Ahamd, hailed from Qadian, a small town in Punjab, India.

By now, leaders from all major political parties of Pakistan (PPP, PML-N, PTI) are on record for attending various anti-Ahmadi Khatima-Nubuwwat conferences and perpetuating anti-Ahmadi hate campaigns in Pakistan and abroad.

  • Great words by Gillani this time….. Pir Mehr Ali shah was the person who knocked out Ghulam Qadiyani in a debate and The Qadiyani founder refused to have further debates with him….. His holy mission’s completion is the responsibly of every Muslim… LUBP has its own vested interests and we can’t expect it to be neutral on Qadiyani issue…

  • Gillani never said this. It was a statement by another speaker at Golra which was wrong attributed to Gillani by a blog.

  • We must not discriminate any person on the basis of his caste or religion,every on has the right to adopt and practice his religion in a free environment and the state should protect the rights, but unfortunately in Pakistan the minorities are always hit by all establishment and mullahs and only sunni people belong to deoband are safe here, Unfortunately!

  • This is very disappointing. Did not expect this from Gillani sahib. Now what is the difference between PPP and PTI as the senior leaders of both are taking part in hate rallies.

    What is the response of PPP Scholar’s Wing or PPP Human Rights Cell on this issue. Someone should alert both these groups of this development. There should be an appropriate response – hopefully a clear condemnation of this act by Gilani sahib. Otherwise, the current PPP has completely failed Ahmadis, Christains, Hindus and Shias.

    Shame

  • I asked this question several hours ago.

    Does LUBP or Shahzade have an answer?

    Why spreading false propaganda against PPP without any proof?

  • Shame on you Gilani….unfortunately PPP has always appeased MULLAHS but Pakistani nation have never approved MULLAISM then why PPP is still committing the same mistake..they learn from history…what happened with there founder who once had tried to appease Mullahs and thought these Mullahs will save him but it was these Mullahs who played a key role in his death…

  • What was Gillani doing at Anti-Ahmaiyya gathering, as they were celebrating Pir Mehar Ali Shah victory against Mirza Ghulam Ahmad in a debate(munazira)

  • Pir Mehar Ali Shah’s ‘holy mission’ to defeat Qadianis was completed by Bhutto

    Proof of the ALLEGED statement?

    ANYONE!

  • @Ahed @TRS

    Whom Brought forward the Constitutional Amendment wasn’t it Mr Bhutto’s Party Yes It Was and and it was a Holy Mission Because in the NA when Mirza Nasir was Asked that if Someone does Not Accepts Kazab Qadoani as a Prophet Mirza Nasir Said he is a Non-Muslim so then they were officially declared a non Muslim which was is and will be always ryt

  • “WAFAT-e-MESSIH MAIN HAYAT-e-ISLAM HAI” Please undestand this pharase.By keeping Hazarat Issa (pbuh) alive, mullahs are playing in the hands of christians. Please try to recognize “Messih-e-Mohammadi, it is not Hazarat Issa (pbuh). At this time and age, Mirza shahib is the greatest lover of the Holy Prophet Mohammad (saw) and “mohasan-e-inssani.These mullahs and their followers are wasting their energy for 150 years. The GOD is keep showing his favors for mirza sahib and showing “lanat” and
    disgrace for his enemies.Ahmadiyyat is bound to succeed and mullahs are bount to be disgraced and failed
