 Qadianis Act review not to be allowed: JI

Friday, June 18, 2010
By our correspondent


JAMAAT-e-Islami Secretary General Liaquat Baloch has expressed concern over Qadianis’ efforts for review of the anti-Qadianis Act and warned that Muslim masses would foil all attempts in this regard.

He was commenting on the reports of Pakistani High Commissioner to UK Wajid Shamsul Hasan’s meeting with head of Qadyani Jamaat and latter’s petition to President Zardari for a review of the anti-Qadianis law.

Baloch said the presidency, foreign office and the Pakistani high commissioner in London had hurt the sentiments of Muslim masses and put to question their own loyalty to the constitution of Pakistan.

Liaquat Baloch pointed out that the National Assembly had declared Qadianis non-Muslims after detailed hearing of their arguments and they enjoyed full minority rights in this country. However, he said, for some time, under the pressure of colonial powers, the official circles were in touch with the Qadianis for allowing the community to openly perform its activities.

He said there had been repeated statement from the US on this issue.

Stating that the Khatm-e-Nubuwwat was an issue of life and death for the Muslims, Baloch said Pakistani nation would never permit a review of the anti Qadianis law. He said that the recent attack on the Qadianis worship places in the Punjab capital was planned by the anti-Islam forces in order to project the community as a victim and to pressurise the government in its favour.

METTING: The Jamaat-e-Islami central executive will meet on Friday (today) at Mansoorah with JI Chief Syed Munawar Hasan in the chair while a three- day meeting of the Jamaat’s Central Shoora will begin here on Saturday, June 19.

Killings condemned: The Jamaat-e-Islami leadership has condemned the assassination of the party leader from Hangu, Maulana Fida Muhammad Sa’di, along with his colleague and termed it terrorism and height of lawlessness. In a statement on Thursday, JI Ameer Syed Munawar Hasan, former Ameer Qazi Husain Ahmed and Secretary General Liaquat Baloch demanded immediate arrest of the killers and deterrent punishment to them.
