Religious bigotry... By Shamim

07 February, 2014

Fawad Chaudhry, a lawyer and PPP's leader has demanded that all those nominated by the Taliban for negotiations with the government should be arrested and investigated for their links with the terrorists. I support his stance. If those running mainstream politico-religious parties were to become the representatives of the militants then what about their loyalty to the state and the government of Pakistan?

In a recently held seminar by the Asian Study Group in collaboration with Kuch Khass, it was discussed how some people mistakenly believe that Islam does not tolerate the existence of other religions. They said that Islam recognizes plurality of religions and gives each individual the right to choose his/her path according to their beliefs. They gave examples from the life of the Prophet (PBUH) and quoted verses from the Quran that promote religious tolerance and inter-faith harmony. The religion that the Taliban want to impose in Pakistan is of which version? Is not the constitution of the country built according to Islamic jurisprudence? So what else is needed?
