KARACHI: A huge rally was staged by Muttahida Majlis-i-Amal on Shahrah-i-Quaideen on Thursday where leaders of the five party’s alliance undertook to continue their struggle throughout the country for the protection of the blasphemy law.
Maulana Fazlur Rahman, the Chief of his own party of the Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam (JUI-F), who is the MMA president, appraised the Supreme Court’s decision to free Aasia Bibi in a blasphemy case; saying that the verdict was taken only under pressure of international forces. He, however, took the chance to aim more the Government of his rival Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf for the final decision in the Asia Bibi case.
“The mandatory rulers were brought in power under a set plan,” he said. “They have been brought to power to deteriorate Pakistan’s dominion and moral identity. But we are here to counter every such move which is against Islamic regulation and the ideology of Pakistan. We are not scared of any state reaction and would continue our fight to achieve our goal.”
Without naming any individual or organization, he said “the agents of Jews” had brought a planned outline, but cautioned that he and his party would never let anyone hoist Israeli flag in Pakistan. “They would hold marches and protest demonstrations around the country on Friday (today) against the release of Asia Bibi and gave a roadmap of doings from the platform of the alliance for the next few weeks” the MMA chief said.
After this successful rally; “we would be calling in Lahore on Nov 15th 2018 for a million-march and then on Nov 25, the MMA would organize a Khatm-i-Nubuwwat conference in Sukkur” MMA chief said. We would not negotiate when it comes to respect of Prophet Muhammad [PBUH] and use our every legal and constitutional right for peaceful protests,” Maulana Fazlur Rahman added.
The Karachi chief of the Jamaat-i-Islami and MMA Hafiz Naeemur Rahman also addressed in the protest, who advised that the people of Pakistan would not accept Asia Bibi’s airlift from the country and the Government would have to pay a heavy price for any such move.
“Imran Khan promised not to seek support from the IMF but he within three months of his Government started begging from the international body.” Likewise, when he was in opposition he cautioned Government; against any move that could affect the blasphemy law. It’s so unlucky and uncovers the true character of Imran Khan and his party that he is taking all those measures which he had already opposed in the past,” he said additionally.
