After frequent demands and fatwas of assassination of Gustakh e Rasool [Salman Rusdhie] I came across with another interesting yet disturbing demand from my patriotic Pakistani Muslim brothers i.e Gustakhe e Ali (Read: not other Sahabas) should also be executed and interestingly that blasphemous personality is none other than our renowned religious scholar Dr. Isar Ahmed.

On  inquiry I came to know that Dr. Israr passed a not-so-blasphemous statement regarding Hazrat Ali on QTV that made certain “intellectuals” to declare him Wajib-ul-Qatal.  Don’t know what the motive behind this graffiti was but one thing is quite clear for sure that Taleban are not the only source of extremism/ terrorism in Pakistan but other religious groups too, mainly from Shia, sunni sects.

I would also quote the incidence of Fatwa of Imam Khomeni on the issue of Salman Rushdie regarding his book Satanic Verses and the fatwa states that it is obligatory for Muslim to kill Salman Rushdie.

I was literally stunned when I read that Fatwa news and had various debates with different people around me and shockingly many people supported the argument that whoever commits blasphemy should be assassinated.

I am still confused if it’s so easy to murder someone just because he has a different view point.

After observing the growing religious fanaticism in Pakistan I can safely conclude that even if we get rid of the menace of Taleban, religious extremists in other forms will always remain in our roots as they have been operating legally and very systematically in our society. These half backed knowledge Mullahs are in our mosques, Imam bargahs and even in our homes in the form of ” MOLI-SAAB” who come from tribal areas or rural Punjab with a Siparah, Saudi scarf, white Qameez Shalwar  and turn into a  respectable religious  personality and sometimes scholar.

We seriously need to ponder this issue by not only keeping an eye on such so called religious scholars’ activities but also by raising voice against unacceptable activities.  IMO it’s easy to eradicate extremists but it’s equally tough to maintain an extremism free society as our “scholars” are swiftly enlightening the masses on daily basis.

  1. I studied from Molvi sahib in Islamabad and he was from Karachi. In fact had studied at Jamia Banoria Karachi.

    But yes otherwise agree with your POV. There is a lot which needs to be changed, it is not just Taliban, it is the environment which made Taliban we need to work on. Perhaps somehow bring back the 60s Pakistan.

  2. Statement made by Dr.Israr is available at http://quranacademy.org with the explainantion.

    Agree with you Tanzeel that only talibans are not the extreamist.
