Unbecoming Views of a Future President

A Special Article whose translation is produced below was written by Senator Justice (Retd) Rafiq Tarar in the Daily Khabrain of 24 April 1997. The senator, a few months later, was appointed President of Pakistan (Annex XI). The article exposes his strong prejudice against the Ahmadiyya Community. It also shows how conveniently Mr Tarar can bend unreliable data and unsupportable logic to suit and support his partiality and malice unbecoming a Senator, an ex-Chief Justice and a future President.

Violation of the Constitution in the Name of Tolerance
By Senator Justice (Retd) Rafiq Tarar

Now-a days it is being reported in the newspapers that the cases of Qadiani session judges who were not recommended by Mr. Khalil ur Rehman, the ex-Chief Justice of the Lahore High Court, are going to be reconsidered. It is being argued that if Christians and Parsis can become judges of superior courts, why not Qadianis.

Apparently this argument would appeal to a layman but those who are aware of Qadiani dogma know that this argument is baseless. Other than Qadianis, all the non-Muslims, they be Christians, Parsis, Hindus, Sikhs or Buddhists, recognize the entire one billion Muslims as such and call them as Muslims. It is only non-Muslim Mirzais* of the Qadiani and Lahori factions who consider a billion Muslim as infidels, and call themselves Muslims. Article 260 of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan declares the Qadiani and Lahore Mirzais as non-Muslims; these people do not accept this. This is proven by the fact that no Qadiani public servant or judge of any kind, including the Qadiani judge of the Lahore High Court who has been appointed on the most important bench, is registered in the voters' list of any election sector. As they can be enrolled only in the non-Muslims' lists, they do not enroll themselves as voters and thus openly violate Article 260 of the Constitution by not accepting their non-Muslim status. The Chief Justice may check up if those whom they would like to appoint as judges of the High Court are registered in the non-Muslims' voters' lists of any election sector of Pakistan. If not, and it is certainly not, then the Chief Justices should consider that how those who do not recognize Article 260 of the Constitution would take the oath of protection and defense of the Constitution as judge of the superior court. Their oath would be like the case of a fraudulent atheist who through swearing by God hoodwinks and cheats others. Would not the position of one, who administers the oath to protect and defend the Constitution of Pakistan to such a person, get itself compromised? The learned Chief Justices may themselves question those whom they want to install as Judges whether they accept themselves as non-Muslims in accordance with Article 260 of the Constitution. The situation will become quite clear.

There are 4088 Qadiani voters in the Punjab. No Qadiani judge of any lower or superior court is listed among them. They already occupy one seat in Punjab's High Court on these 4088 votes. In this Province, the number of Muslim voters exceeds 3,21,00,000. If Muslims are also given one vacancy for each 4088 votes, the number of Muslim judges in Lahore High Court should exceed 7008 judges, while only 50 vacancies are authorized here. It transpires from recent news in the print media that an 'important person' is bent upon appointing Qadianis as judges of the High Court, and it was he on whose instance Justice Khalil-ur-Rehman was sent to the Supreme Court. If now this ‘Important person’ again uses any pressure tactics, the Muslim masses will Inshallah take the issue in their own hands and then- let the Hell be let loose. (Emphasis provided. Ed.)

One billion of world Muslims are most emotionally linked with the Holy prophet (peace be upon him). If his honor is at sake, one is then not bothered about who is the so-called important person, how powerful he is and what he wants. In such a situation Muslims enter the battlefield ready to sacrifice their lives, children, properties and parents for the sake of the Holy Prophet. (Emphasis provided. Ed.)

The movements of 1953 and 1974 are sufficient proof that followers of the fake prophet ** who rebelled against the Holy Prophet cannot be imposed upon Muslims of this God-given country. Mirzais and their 'Important Person' should leam a lesson from the shameful departure of Sir Zafrulla *** from the Foreign Ministry, and should refrain from planting Qadianis in the judiciary. The important person should pay heed; not much time is left in his departure from the seat of power. Does he not see that many individuals who were powerful only six or seven months ago are now languishing in prisons. Among them is the one who played an important role in patronizing this ‘important person’ and had him installed in his present position. Only God is ever self-subsisting. Many a lackeys like this ‘important person’ are lost in wilderness after their fall from power- they roam about and no one bothers about them. Figuratively they proclaim: ‘Look at us and take a lesson’.
Armed anti Ahmadiyya extremists take to the streets in Quetta. Mr Tarar threatened the same countrywide.
This label is used for Ahmadis by the vulgar as a form of insult - Tr.

In fact. Sir Zafrulla subsequently went to the UN where he became President of the 17th Session of the General Assembly. Later, he was appointed President of the International Court of Justice at The Hague.
