A sample of Tahir Ashrafi Deobandi’s hate speech against Shias, Ahmadis and Sunni Barelvis

Given the blatant hate-speech against Ahmadis, Shias, Sunni Barelvis by him, we ask Pakistani media, activists, NGOs and foreign governments to Ban Tahir Ashrafi from appearing in the media, speak to sectarian harmony conferences, or visit foreign countries.

Here is a sample of his hate speech:

For the Ahmadiyya community, he wrote:

“Mirza Qadiyani (founder of Ahmadiyya Islamic community) was a liar, he was fond of immoral practices, when he was drunk he used to describe himself as Jesus and Allah. Everyone who treats Qadianis (Ahmadis) as Muslims is himself (or herself) an infidel (Kafir).”

For the Sunni Barelvi community, he wrote:

“When the Shaykhul Islam is someone like Tahir ul Qadri and the grand Mufti is like Munib-ur-Rehman, you will not find Islam (i.e., Sunni Barelvis do not represent Islam or Muslims). Qadianis (Ahmadis) and Qadris (Barelvis) can do destruction only”.

For Pakistan’s friends in international community, he wrote:

“Qadianis (Ahmadis) are loyal to the British crown (not Pakistan)”.

“We must stop Iranian dogs from destroying our homeland (Pakistan)”.

Upset by a video exposing the involvement of Sipah Sahaba (ASWJ-LeJ) militants in terrorist activities in Pakistan, Tahir Ashrafi resorted to naked abuse to a Shia activist:

“You are cunning, liar and hypocrite. Aren’t Deobandis and Barelvis being killed in Pakistan too? It’s a part of your Shia faith to lie. Your father was a liar. What’s your family background? You are a product of a temporary marriage (polite word for ‘bastard Shia’ in Deobandi discourse). You appear to be a descendant of Abdullah bin Ubay (a hypocrite in Prophet Muhammad’s era). How dare you criticize Deobandi scholars?”

For Al Qaeda’s Salafi Wahhabi terrorist Osama bin Laden he wrote:

tahir

A bigoted Deobandi mullah who spews hate against Ahmadis, Shias, Sunni Barelvis 24/7 must not be allowed to appear on TV channels and other media outlets.

We encourage activists and rights groups to approach the EU, UK, US and other government to impose visa ban on the hate cleric.

We ask the Jinnah Institute, SAFMA and other NGOs to categorically dissociate from Tahir Ashrafi Deobandi and condemn his hate speech against Ahmadis, Shias etc. Read this post to see who promotes Tahir Ashrafi: https://lubpak.net/archives/237681

How can the bigoted mullah who played a key role in securing release of Malik Ishaq Deobandi terrorist help Pakistan in curbing Shia Genocide? http://www.jinnah-institute.org/programs/open-democracy-initiative/535-roundtable-on-reversing-the-tide-of-sectarian-violence

#BanTahirAshrafi for his secret agenda to instigate sectarian violence among communities.

#BanTahirAshrafi for bringing Sipah Sahaba Taliban hate preachers in Karachi’s mosques and brain washing innocent/poor children for terrorism.

Ashrafi’s presence on News Channels is facilitated by the defenders of our geographical & ideological frontiers, i.e., Pakistani generals.

We encourage activists and rights groups within and outside Pakistan to participate in the #BanTahirAshrafi campaign

Tahir Ashrafi Deobandi is known for hate speech against Shias, Sunni Barelvis, Ahmadis, Jews and Christians.

He played a key role in release of notorious Deobandi militant of Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (currently vice president of Sipah Sahaba aka Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat ASWJ) Malik Ishaq Deobandi. He continues to fan anti-Shia hatred by alleging that Shias abuse the Sahaba (Companions of the Prophet) and are therefore Kafir and Murtad (apostate). In this way, he enables violence against Shia Muslims.

He played a key role in murder of Pakistan’s Minority Affairs Minister, Shahbaz Bhatti (a Christian) by instigating violence against him on the issue of the notorious blasphemy law.

Transcript of the above clip (in Roman Urdu): tum agar ye samajhtay ho ke is qanoon (blasphemy law) ko jo qadiyanion kay mutalliq hai aur wo jo amreeki senateron ka dallaal hai, Asif Ali Zadari, us Shabaz Bhatti kay liyay main kehna chahta hoon ke tum khwab main bhi mat sochna ke is mulk kay andar islami dafaat say koi khail sakay ga, hum wo haath taur dain gay, main zimmay daaari say keh raha hoon, tum nay islami dafaat ki taraf haath kia, haath taur dain gay, zubaan ki zubaan katain gay, aankhon say daikha aankhain nikaal dain gay, tum jo kar saktay ho kar lo, jis tarah tumharay baap amreeka ko mullah umar nay apnay talway chaatnay per majboor kia huwa hai, agar tum uss ki haraami aulad ban kar aaye, tau inshallah hum tumhain bhi yahan kay (Deobandi) madaris kay tulba kay, ulma kay, mashaikh kay talway chatnay per majboor kar dain gay. (applause from the crowd comprising Deobandi clerics and madrassa students)

English translation: If you think that you can amend this law (the anti-blasphemy law introduced by Islamist military dictator General Zia-ul-Haq) which is about Qadianis (i.e., Ahmadis), and I want to say this to that pimp of the U.S. senators, Asif Ali Zardari, and (to his Minority Affairs Minister) Shahbaz Bhatti, you should not even dream of changing the Islamic clauses (of the national constitution and laws) in this country. We will break that hand, I am saying with full responsibility, if you moved your hand towards (amending) Islamic clauses, we will break that hand, if you used your tongue against Islamic clauses, we will cut that tongue, if you directed your eyes towards Islamic clauses, we will take your eyes out. Do whatever you can. The way Mullah Umar has forced your daddy U.S.A. to lick its feet, if you acted as bastard children of the U.S.A. in Pakistan, then God willing, we will make sure that you too are forced to lick the feet of students of (Deobandi) madrassas and clerics. (applause from the crowd comprising Deobandi clerics and madrassa students)

Provoked and tipped by such hate speech, Deobandi militants of banned terrorist group Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ-ASWJ) killed Pakistan’s Federal Minister Shahbaz Bhatt on 2 March 2011. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/03/03/world/asia/03pakistan.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0

He frequently abuses Mirza Ghulam Ahmed, founder of Ahmadiyya sect, and resorts to hate speech against Ahmadis whom he describes as infidels, apostates, agents of foreign powers etc.

He frequently ridicules Sunni Barelvi (Sufi) Muslims, attacking their religious rituals (Milad-un-Nabi etc) and speaks ill of Sunni Barelvi clerics.

At the platform of the ISI-sponsored Defence of Pakistan Council (DPC) comprising banned Sipah Sahaba (ASWJ) and Jamaat-ud-Dawa (LeT), Ashrafi frequently spews venom against other countries particularly Iran, UK and USA to instigate attacks on Iranian and American diplomats and officials working in Pakistan.

It’s, however, deeply disturbing that despite his heavily racist and hate-oriented attitude, Ashrafi Deobandi is routinely invited on TV channels (under the instruction of Pakistan’s military establishment) where he is promoted as preacher of harmony and a prophet of peace.

Certain dubious pseudo-liberal institutes e.g. SAFMA and Sherry Rehman’s Jinnah Institute promote him as a representative of a progressive, tolerant Pakistan.

This is in stark contrast to what Tahir Ashrafi Deobandi actually does or represents.

On Twitter, he is busying spewing venom against Ahmadis, Shias, Sunni Barelvis etc 24/7 on one pretext or the other.

He resorts to most naked abuses when he is short of decent arguments, which he usually is. https://lubpak.net/archives/237523

Unfortunately the hate cleric is being promoted by two well connected “liberals” (also alleged to be fake liberals) namely Raza Rumi and Marvi Sirmed. According to Raza Rumi, director of Jinnah Institute:

It is time to engage with clerics like Tahir Ashrafi and get them to join the struggle for a moderate and progressive Pakistan Maulana Tahir Ashrafi, Chairman of Pakistan Ulema Council (an apex body of country wide religious scholars) led a vigorous campaign on this issue and in my several meetings and conversations with him I was impressed by the remarkable clarity with which he stood by this non-Muslim child…Ashrafi is a brave exception but he also paid for it as a sinister campaign against him was launched to delegitimize him.It is never too late to remind the survival-obsessed civilian governments to institute some of these measures. More importantly, it is time to engage with thinking clerics like Ashrafi and get them to join the struggle for a moderate and progressive Pakistan. (Source: Jinnah Institute)

We urge all activists to organize and participate in the #BanTahirAshrafi campaign to ban this Prophet of Hate from TV channels and newspapers.

Screenshots should be taken of his hate speech 24/7 on Twitter against Ahmadis, Shias, Sunni Barelvis etc.

He should not be allowed to appear on TV and newspapers nor we can allow him to be promoted as a prophet of peace and sectarian harmony

We the Shias, the Barelvis, the Ahmadis etc reject him and his hypocritical promoters.

We request the governments of the UK, France, other EU countries, US, India etc to impose visa restrictions on him and those who are promoting him. Their bank accounts and assets outside Pakistan must be frozen so that they cannot use those funds to incite violence against already target killed religious groups in Pakistan or against Western citizens by the Takfiri Deobandi militant affiliates.

  • Dear Readers
    I love peace and hate violence. During the last two decades, I have seen nurseries of religious schools in every village, city etc. The number of these nurseries is increasing day by day. Instead of increasing number of schools, we are establishing madersas. For establishing a madersa we do not need any clearance, NoC, parents certificate, attendance, examination body etc. Just raise a symbolic flag, occupy some lant, hang a poster for mosque under construction, madersa under construction, you are allowed to do so. Let us come to see what the children are taught there? There is no any recongnized syllabus to be taught, there is no recruitment criteria for teachers and we can expect same result. On every madersa, flags of fundamentalist organizations are hoisted and their literature is taught. The pupils are taught to be ahead of all due to being muslim and belonging to specified sect (by birth). When they come out they see world with that eye which is groomed in these madersas. I have seen areas where is majority of any specified sect. The loud speakers bark against an other fact and hate tolerance. They always encourage torture against other religion people, other sect group and so on. There areas have become no go areas for other people. I have listed to sunni, shia and have good relations with people belonging to both sects. They are not behind and always keep calling abusive language against other sect. Until we go by this system, we can not get out of the crisis. Religion should be banned as politics and religious political parties should be banned.

    most probably they are double agents who exchange info with isi, raw and cia
