‘Nizam-e-Mustafa movement’ initiated in Pakistan

LAHORE: The religious leadership of the country attending the Nizam-e-Mustafa Conference at Mansoora on Saturday resolved to launch a movement against the anti-Islam measures of the government, to protect the Islamic rites, Islamic society and the Muslim family system and to continue the movement till the Nizame Mustafa was enforced and the country was freed from the clutches of corrupt elite.

A joint declaration adopted at the moot made it clear that any amendment in the Blasphemy Law was unacceptable and vowed to foil the Qadyanis’ conspiracies against the concept of the Finality of the Holy Prophet ( PBUH). While declaring the execution of Mumtaz Qadri Shaheed a judicial murder, the conference condemned the arrests of those staging protests against it. It demanded immediate release of those arrested and withdrawal of the cases against them.

The conference termed the Women Protection law enacted by the Punjab Assembly as an attack on the Muslim family system and resolved to bring forth an alternative draft law for this purpose in the light of the Holy Quran and the Sunnah. It slated maltreatment to the womenfolk both inside the house or outside, by the state or non state actors but declared that the government would not be permitted to shake the unity of the house or the family system under the cover of the law passed by the Punjab Assembly.

It noted that the Bill had been totally rejected by the country’s womenfolk, the Ulema of all schools of Muslim thought while the Council of Islamic Ideology had termed it repugnant to the Shariah. The declaration said that under the constitution, any law that violated the Shariah could not have any legal status. Ameer, Jamaat-e-Islami, Pakistan, Senator Sirajul Haq, chaired the moot. The speakers included JI(F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rahman, Jamat al Dawa chief Hafiz Muhammad Saeed, JUI(S) chief Maulana Samiul Haq, JU) chief Dr Abul Khair Zubair, Prof, Sajid Meer, Hafiz Aakif Saeed, and others.

The declaration denounced the efforts of a section of the media to ridicule Islamic rites, causing provocation, and promoting Indian culture besides obscenity and nudity, and stressed that this tendency must be checked effectively. The conference strongly condemned the suicide bombing at Gulshan e Iqbal, Lahore besides all forms of terrorism and extremism and observed that these aimed at weakening the country’s ideology, solidarity and economy.
It also condemned India’ intelligence agency RAW’s terrorist network aiming at weakening this country and demanded that the RAW agents or spies taken in custody must not be shown any lenience and should be handed down exemplary punishment under the law. Agencies
