RAWALPINDI: A spokesman for Federal Minister for Parliamentary Affairs and senior advocate Dr Babar Awan has alleged that the recent campaign against Mr Awan has been launched at the behest of “Qadiani lobby”, which considers him a hurdle in its nefarious designs.
In a press release, the spokesman said the minister strongly resisted a conspiracy to abolish Islamic clauses from the constitution and changing its name, besides becoming a strong barrier against a campaign for repealing “Tahaffuz-e-Namoos-e-Risalat” law (anti-blasphemy law). The efforts of Dr Awan on the one hand foiled the attempts of this lobby, but on the other hand boiled anger against him, which is evident from the accusations against him, he added. People know the background of Dr Babar Awan, he said and added that he had the honour of being “Wakeel-e-Khatm-e-Nabuwat” and “Aseer-e-Namus-e-Khatm-e-Rusul” in the past and considered it his lifetime achievement.
The spokesman said Dr Babar Awan was ready to respond to such charges in future and made it clear to his critics that he was ready to offer any sacrifice for the defence of Islamic status of the constitution and honour of the holy Prophet (PBUH) and such tactics could not deprive him of this honour.
