04 October, 2012
KARACHI: Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Pakistan Naib Ameer Sirajul Haq has said that America and other western countries had expressed themselves as Muslims' enemy by making blasphemy film.
It is not a minor issue, it created environment of war throughout the globe.
He expressed these views while addressing a large protest demonstration of JI Women Wing, held here at Mazar-e-Quaid on Wednesday against blasphemous movie. The protest was led by JI Women Wing Pakistan Central Assistant Secretary Durdana Siddiqui, Kosar Masood, JI Sindh Nazim Afsha Naveed, JI Karachi Nazim Rina Fazal and others, while a large number of women also attended the demonstration.
Naib Ameer said that Muslims could not tolerate blasphemy of their Prophets, and love with Prophet is an identity of Muslim belief. After defeat in Afghanistan, America tried to hurt sentiments of Muslims and challenged Muslims beliefs by making film, he said.
He further said that recently Barack Obama in his speech discussed torching of their flag, which showed that he cared about his country flag but did not have respect for emotions of Muslims. Haq said, "Muslims, by holding protests across the globe, proved that they could not tolerate blasphemy of their Prophets," adding that our government high-ups were along with US in that war as President Asif Ali Zardari was in London, but did not record his protest.
He said that for the safety of American ambassador and to make America happy, government tortured innocent Muslims while they were trying to record their protest. Naib Ameer said that the solution to issues was only the Islamic revolution; otherwise this kind of incidents would continue.
Karachi Ameer Muhammad Hussain Mehanti said that western countries were proving themselves enemy of Muslim by creating such kind of issues. He said that they would sacrifice their lives against blasphemy.
Naseem Siddiqui said that women by holding protest showed manifestation of their honour. On the occasion,
JI Karachi Naib Ameer Nasarullah and others were also present.
