This is how Deobandi cleric Haq Nawaz Jhangvi, founder of Sipah-e-Sahaba, contributed to Benazir Bhutto’s murder

Sipah-e-Sahaba was founded by Haq Nawaz Jhangvi who received generous logistic and financial support from Pakistan Army and Saudi Arabia.

It is a fact that Takfiri Deobandis (Sipah-e-Sahaba ASWJ, Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, Taliban etc) represent only a tiny minority of Pakistan’s Sunni population and are also rejected by the majority of moderate Deobandis (Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman, Maulana Shirani, Qazi Hussain Ahmed etc).

Also, it is a fact that since 1980s, Takfiri Deobandis have been recruited and used by Saudi Arabia and Pakistan Army to conduct Jihadist operations in Afghanistan, Kashmir and other countries. The warm relationship between ISI and ASWJ/Taliban and State-support to Takfiri Deobandis continues till today.

It’s, therefore, no surprise that the footsoldiers who killed Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto in December 2007 were Takfiri Deobandis of the Taliban and Sipah-e-Sahaba (ASWJ).

Thanks to the internet, it is possible to examine how hatred of Benazir Bhutto and other moderate Sunni, Shia and minority community leaders was systematically spread by preachers of hatred and violence.

We are providing two examples in this post to demonstrate how Benazir Bhutto’s murder was enabled and initiated in 1980s by none other than Haq Nawaz Jhangvi, the slain founder chief of banned Takfiri Deobandi group Sipah-e-Sahaba Pakistan. It may be recalled that the defunct Sipah-e-Sahaba is currently working as Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat under the protection and patronage of Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif (PML-N).

Here are two examples, two speeches by Haq Nawaz Jhangvi (Chay Lakh Inaam, and Benazir Ka Operation) which were very effective and fatal in spreading hatred against women in general, Benazir Bhutto in particular, consistent with the Takfiri Deobandi ideology.

  • In it Para 217, UN Report said: “Several of these sources spoke of the existence of elements within the establishment who saw Benazir’s return to an active political life in Pakistan as a threat to their power. These elements included, in particular, those who retain links with radical Islamists, especially the militant jihadi (Takfiri Deobandi) and Taliban groups, and are sympathetic to their cause or view them as strategic assets for asserting Pakistan’s role in the region.”

    Ms Bhutto was attacked earlier the same year, on October 18 in Karachi, and was nearly killed. Once again the attacker was linked to the Taliban, although his family was based in Karachi. The attack killed 150 people and the man responsible was Abdul Wahab Mehsud who fled to Waziristan after the incident. He was the son of a retired policeman in Karachi. The others accused belonged to non-state actors from a jihadi outfit.

    The remnants of the team of assassins that came to Rawalpindi are in state custody. The JIT report also confirmed that the killers of Ms Bhutto stayed at Madrassa Haqqania in Nowshehra. Incidentally, that seminary is run by JUI-S leader Maulana Samiul Haq (Takfiri Deobandi), who is one of the leading lights of the Defence of Pakistan Council, the clerical-jihadi conglomerate spearheading Pakistan’s anti-American drive and indirectly empowering the establishment’s new isolationist policy. So the question is: when will Ms Bhutto’s killers be caught and tried in a court of law?


  • Takfiri Deobandis are Kharijiites of modern era. They are Mufsid fil arz, all of them deserve capital punishment.

  • It is widely believed that Benazir replied saying that she followed Sunni Islam as Bhutto is a Sunni Tribe and this is false propoganda.

  • I am reverted into Islam after leaving Shia ism and I really thanks to Moulana Haq Nawaz Jhangi shaheed rha who opened our us to understand the truth of my previous belief.Benazir Bhutto belongs to Iranian soil originally and PPP itself a traitor to pakistan all the time.We have a bitter history of Mujibur Rehman and Bhutto who split this nation into.A cases of corruption to the Massacre in pakistan is the true face of PPP all the time.What she didnot to this nation everybody knows how corrupt that woman were however only stupid and senseless people support her so well after she got something she deserved for.Anyone who still support PPP supporting evil on all board.When you say anything about Deoband or Ulema e Haq better to ask yourself who you are and from where do u belong.This nation is made by them.We can’t tolerate the abusing of justice in the hands of a dirty Secular Shia organization called a PPP.Benazir belongs to Shia sect as her mother Nusrat bhutto belongs to shia family.For more check this one out http://tribune.com.pk/story/280714/nusrat-bhutto-the-woman-wife-and-mother/..Even zardari is a pure shia who runs Shia banned organization SMP today.Any one who get a prestige post in Pakistan parliament described him/her being a Sunni.No Sunni is allowed in shia parliment to get a one seat on the contrary our nation runs by the shia many of times.
