Haider Farooq Maudoodi is an outspoken critic of Jamaat-e-Islami. More importantly, he is one of the three sons of late Syed Abul Ala Maudoodi, the founder of Jamaat-e-Islami. In a recent interview, which has gone viral on the internet, he has exposed the shenanigans of the Jamaat-e-Islami and the Islami Jamiat-e-Talaba. Though he may be sounding angry against the leadership of the party for the “injustices” being faced by him and the family of late Maudoodi at the hands of Jamaat-e-Islami and their support base in the judiciary, army and ISI, the fact remains he has spoken out after looking to settle the issue of his father’s estate, even after 30 years of his death.
Some of the key points of his interview include the following:
Iss waqt Jamaat-e-Islami par Islami Jamiat-e-Talaba kay ghundon ka qabza hay jin mayn Liaqat Baloch, Munawwar Hassan aur Farid Paracha shamil hayn
Poocha jaye Qazi Hussain Ahmed kay paas itna paisa kahan say aaya kay aaj Islamabad mayn kothi hay?
“Currently Jamaat-e-Islami is under the control of Islami Jamiat-e-Tulaba thugs that include Liaquat Baloch, Munawar Hassan and Farid Paracha.
It should be asked as to how Qazi Hussain got the money to purchase a house in Islamabad?
Khurram Murad kehta tha kay tumharay baap (Maudoodi) kee kitabon ko kon parhta hay?
Khurram Murad used to say: Who reads your father’s (Maududi’s) books?”
When asked why doesn’t he get justice from courts, he says “In adalaton say insaaf hasil karnay kay lie umar-e-nooh, sabar-e-Ayub aur Qaroon ka Khazana chahiye.” (To get justice from the current courts, one needs the long lifetime of Noah, the Patience of Ayub and Qaroon’s immense Wealth.
When asked what does Police do when IJT workers attack him, he says “Police walay FIR nahee darj kartay aur kehtay hayn, ISI aur Fauj nay mana kiya hua hay kay Jamiat aur Jamaat kay khilaf koi muqadama nahee darj karna” (The police will not press charges and inform that ISI and Army has forbidden any cases to be lodged against Jamiat and Jamaat)
About Munawwar Hassan he says “Munawwarbhee NSF mayn tha. Unn kee darhi nahee thee, guitar bajatay thay. Wahan say CIA nay Jamiat mayn post kiya.” (Munawwar Hassan used to be with NSF. He did not possess a beard and used to play the guiter. CIA got him from there and posted him in the Jamiat.
Regarding the sitting Chief Justice of Lahore High Court he says “CJ Ijaz civil lines mayn Jamiat kay harawal dastay mayn thay. Woh ghudagardi aur badmaashi mayn sab say agay hotay thay” (Chief Justice LHC was part of the frontline brigade in Civil Lines. He was the foremost in thuggery and criminal acts there.
He ends the interview with the following prayer which we all concur, “Allah uss din say Pakistan ko mehfooz rakhay jub yeh Jamaat-e-Islami is mulk par qabiz ho.” (May God protect Pakistan from the day when Jamaat-e-Islami captures the State)

At the same time, we would like to post the video to another son of Maudoodi, Khalid Farooq Maudoodi who speaks up against his brother. The brother’s interview focuses more on the issues between the brothers than the Jamaat-e-Islami. As the siblings issues are more private, we wouldn’t like to comment much on it.
The interview of Haider Farooq Maudoodi just shows the issues which people of Pakistan are facing and going to face due to the seeped in influence of Jamaat-e-Islami in every aspect of life in Pakistan. We commend him for his courage.
