Muslim rulers’ respect lies in showing love for the Prophet and not the west .SIRAJ
LAHORE, Jan. 30: Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Sirajul Haq, has said that the Muslim rulers including Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif can get respect through their expression of love for the Holy Prophet (PBUH) and not through their loyalty to the west and the US.
Addressing the Friday congregation at Mansoora mosque, he said if someone’s sense of religious dignity was not aroused on the heinous crime of blasphemy, he should take care of his faith.
The JI chief said there was silence of the graveyards in the corridors of power in the Muslim states on the publication of blasphemous caricatures in a France journal while the Muslim masses have been agitating on roads and streets.
Sirajul Haq said that the repeated incidents of the blasphemy of the Noble Prophet and the mock trials of the Holy Quran and setting the holy book afire were chain of the Zionists plot to disturb world peace. The Zionists had always been at the back of the crusades as they had always hatched conspiracies to pit the Muslims and the Christians against each other.
He said the repeated incidents of the blasphemy had hurt the one and a half billion Muslims in the world. However, none of the international bodies including the UN had raised voice against this.
Sirajul Haq said, the Muslims did not talk of the sanctity of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and the Holy Quran alone, instead they stressed for the respect for all the prophets of Allah and all revealed books. He said that inter=faith harmony and dialogue was imperative for world peace. Therefore, blasphemy of the prophets of God and desecration of the divine books should be declared an international crime and stringent laws should be made in this regard so that no body dared to indulge in such a crime.
Condemning the silence of the Muslim rulers on the issue, the JI chief however declared that the JI and its like- minded parties would continue to chase the blasphemers till they stopped this unholy practice. He said that the Muslims considered it greatest honour to lay down their lives for safeguarding the sanctity of the beloved Prophet (pbuh). He urged all the political and religious parties to join at a single platform on the issue of blasphemy.
