Muslim rulers flayed for silence over blasphemous sketches

The Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) leaders have condemned the blasphemous sketches of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) published in Danish newspapers and termed it a violation of basic human rights. This they said while addressing at a protest demonstration near Mazar-e-Quaid on Sunday.

Thousands of JI workers and citizens attended the demonstration and chanted slogans against the Danish government. They also raised slogans against Pakistani rulers for their alleged blind support to the US policies. Naib Amir Jamaat-e-Islami, Professor of Danish, condemned the Danish media for anti-Islami bias. He said some powers wanted to deliberately provoke and hurt the feeling of millions of Muslims.

The veteran politician said these blasphemous sketches had united the Ummah and now millions of people in various parts of the world were opposing these blasphemous acts.

Professor Ahmed said that the Western countries were claiming themselves to be civilised societies and champions of human rights, but they had no care for the feelings of 1.25 billion Muslims of the world.

Regarding the Muslim rulers, he charged that the Western powers favoured those dictators that had no roots in their nation only for completing the Western agenda. He asked the US government not to interfere in Pakistan affairs, after the defeat of US-backed elements in the general elections.

The US should not influence the formation of future government in Pakistan, he demanded. Amir JI, Karachi Chapter, Muhammad Hussain Mehnati, said that it was written in the Holy Qur’aan that the Christians and Jews could never be true friends of the Muslims.

In this regard he cited the example of Palestine, where all these forces have joined hands in the bloodshed of Muslims. Mehnati regretted the 57 Muslim countries had kept a criminal silent on the blasphemous activities of Danish media. He also criticised the Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC) for becoming a silent spectator on this issue and not raising it in the UN Security Council.
