07 January, 2013
KARACHI: Senior Vice President of Jamiat Ulema-e-Pakistan (JUP) and patron-in-chief of Central Jamaat Ahle Sunnat Shah Owais Noorani without naming Dr Tahirul Qadri said on Sunday that Canadian citizen was toeing the stance of Mirza Gulam Ahmed Qadiani on the Kashmir issue by describing the struggle of Kashmiri people as unjustified'.
In a statement issued here, Noorani recalled that Allama Syed Abul Hasnaat Qadri, Allama Abdul Hamid Badayuni and Allama Mufti Sahibdad Khan of Ulema-o-Mashaikh Ahle Sunnat had issued an edict with their signature in 1947 declaring the Crusade of Kashmir as justified and since then the people of Kashmir are fighting for independence.
"But now a Canadian so-called Shaikh-ul-Islam is opposing the Kashmir Jihad to appease his masters," JUP leader said sounding a note of warning that betrayal to Kashmir cause would not be tolerated at any cost.
"The Canadian citizens, who is talking of saving the state, must keep in mind that the entire economy of Pakistan depends on Kashmir," he said, adding that nobody would be allowed to revive the stance of Qadianis on Kashmir.
Meanwhile, Pakistan People's Party (PPP) Central Deputy Information Secretary and Sindh Information Minister Sharjeel Inam Memon has said that Tahir-ul-Qadri was trying to misguide the nation but his plans would not materialise.
In a statement issued here on Sunday, he said the people could not be made fool by fake slogans and the government also could not be blackmailed.
"Certain people having undemocratic approach were trying to derail the democracy. Tahir-ul-Qadri should look inside him before criticising PPP. The people know them very well. He supported General Pervez Musharraf and opposed democratic system," Sharjeel alleged.
The minister said Tahir-ul-Qadri would never succeed in his motives. "Pakistan needs unity and democracy but not any revolution."
