NEWAGEISLAM TV: Sectarian Divide In Pakistan
Mujahid Hussain, New Age Islam

We have many examples before us when people were killed in police custody. Hafiz Farouque of Gujranwala and the insane person of Bahawalpur who was accused of burning the Quran were killed in this way. He had a certificate of insanity. He was under treatment but could not recover. Now the Shariah says that if an insane person commits any sin he cannot be punished. The insane person was arrested by the police. Later a crowd gathered. The jihadi organisations made announcements and people gathered and attacked the police station. He was released from police custody. Not only that, the police station was burned down and the police residential quarters where the police staff lived were also burned down. A policeman told the media that he had made preparations for the marriage of his two daughters. So, the entire dowry was gutted along with two copies of the holy Quran. A mad person burnt the Quran but a crowd of sane persons burnt a house where two copies of Quran were burnt. After that the mad man was taken from there. He was made to stand in Ahmadpur Chowk. The crowd clapped and raised slogans and then set him on fire. How many people were arrested? How many were punished? No one knows.

 

 

The answer to your question, when the sectarian killings and violence started in Pakistan, I think it is basically the 80s when the possibility of sectarian violence and sectarian bloodshed arose. Three such incidents occurred in this region that basically created an atmosphere of sectarian and communal rifts. One was Russia’s attack on Afghanistan when we used the government machinery for jihad, and all the organised institutions of Pakistan including the army provided leadership to this jihad......

 

But the tragedy with us here is that we have compiled the history of Pakistan anew and we have Islamised the history of Pakistan as all the institutions were nationalised during the Bhutto’s regime. And all the people and all the organisation, all the schools of thought that had disagreed with Qaid-e-Azam and his colleagues not only interpret the movement for Pakistan from all aspects but also do not agree to give any space to other religions in Pakistan.

Such is the strength of feeling about blasphemy that the mere rumour of an allegation is enough to set the neighbourhood or village against the accused, increasingly with fatal consequences. In some instances, it is not just the accused, but their entire community who are held responsible and threatened......

The country that gave refuge to Osama Bin Laden; that committed genocide in Bangladesh; that hosts the Taliban, where ‘apostates’ are beheaded and school girls shot; whose constitution expels entire communities from their faith and where tens of thousands of Shias and Baloch are being massacred, should not be allowed to hoist its flag anywhere in Canada outside their embassy. 

 

Beheading is not a barbaric act if God wants you to do it. Since God knows best!!!

-- Syed Rizvi

And, of course, Saudis know best what God wants them to do with human beings.
