Fazl rules out possibility of coup in country
2016-07-18
[DAWN] PESHAWAR: Jamaat Ulema-e-Islam
...Assembly of Islamic Clergy, or JUI, is a Pak Deobandi (Hanafi) political party. There are two main branches, one led by Maulana Fazlur Rahman, and one led by Maulana Samiul Haq.

has ruled out possibility of military coup in the country.

"I don’t see any possibility of military takeover in the country, no doubt Army Chief Gen Raheel Sharif
..Pak chief of army staff, meaning he pulls the strings on the Nawaz Sharif puppet to make it dance and sing and not do much at all....
is a popular commander," he said in reply to a question put to him during a presser here on Tuesday.

He lauded the Turkish people and President Recep Tayyip Erdogan
... Turkey's version of Mohammed Morsi but they voted him back in so they deserve him...
for foiling the coup in The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...the only place on the face of the earth that misses the Ottoman Empire....
The JUI-F chief said that some elements tried to instigate the army for takeover by displaying portraits of Gen Raheel across the country. He said that those elements attempted to make Gen Raheel controversial.

"Those, who displayed portraits of Gen Raheel, should be tried under Article 6 of the Constitution," he demanded, adding that those elements had harmed the army chief through displaying his portraits.

There was need of strict action against those elements, who had invited the army chief to take over, he said.

Mr Fazl said that abortive military coup in Turkey was an international conspiracy.

"Even if a Jew becomes the prime minister of Pakistain, Fazlur Rehman would not only accept a ministry from him but will also issue a religious decree allowing him to lead an Islamic country," said the PTI chief.

's visit to the province earlier this month criticised PTI for not doing enough to provide relief to the people, and accused Durrani of trying to bribe PTI politicians.

Imran recalled Durrani's claims where he said that he can topple the KP government.

He did not spare the JUI-F chief Fazlur Rehman, who often labels him a 'Jewish agent', and said that "Jews do not need agents when people like Fazlur Rehman are there to damage the country".

"Even if a Jew becomes the prime minister of Pakistain, Fazlur Rehman would not only accept a ministry from him but will also issue a religious decree allowing him to lead an Islamic country," said the PTI chief.

Turning his guns finally towards the premier, he reminded the crowd that people in the past had advised him to leave Nawaz Sharif alone and focus on the PPP chief Zardari who is more corrupt but then came Panama Leaks and everyone got to know that Nawaz Sharif's children own offshore firms.

He accused the prime minister of downplaying the issue through visits across the country and doing useless speeches instead of replying to the allegations in parliament and presenting himself for accountability.

"How can the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) bring other corrupt leaders to book when the man leading the country is corrupt himself," said Imran.

was on Thursday admitted at the Pakistain Institute of Medical Sciences (Pims) for several hours for the treatment of a stomach problem.

The JUI chief was kept under observation and after a number of tests discharged in the evening with an advice to have complete bed rest and avoid spicy and oily diet.

Maulana Rehman, who has been suffering from diabetes for over 10 years, was seen by gastroenterologists Dr Qurratul Ain Haider and Dr Waseem Khawaja.

Dr Khawaja later told Dawn that spicy and oily diet was the major cause of the stomach problem.

"As the diet was not healthy, it caused swelling in the stomach. Injections were given to decrease the swelling," he said.

Bangladesh
Ex-UK envoy grenade attack case full verdict released
2016-04-29
[Dhaka Tribune] The High Court has released the full text of its judgment that upheld a lower court’s verdict against five Harkat-ul Jihad al-Islami Bangladesh (HuJI
Founded in 1984 by Fazlur Rehman Khalil and Qari Saifullah Aktar. The Bangla branch was established in 1992 with assistance from Osama bin Laden. Recruits come mostly from Deobandi madrassahs. HuJI and Fazlur Rehman Khalil are signators of bin Laden's declaration of war on the west.
B) Death Eaters for an liquidation attempt on former British high commissioner Anwar Choudhury in 2004.

This furthers the way for the death sentence of HuJi leader Mufti Abdul Hannan, who criminal masterminded several bombings between 2001 and 2004. He will still able to challenge the verdict at the Appellate Division.

The High Court bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Amir Hossain pronounced the judgment on February 11 this year, over seven years after the trial court verdict that gave death sentence to three and life imprisonment to two bully boys.

The 167-page full text written by Justice Rahim was uploaded on the Supreme Court’s website yesterday.

Three Death Eaters of the banned outfit HuJi - Mufti Hannan, Sharif Shahedul Alam Bipul, and Md Delwar Hossain alias Ripon ‐ were sentenced to death while two others ‐ Hannan’s brother Muhibullah alias Muhibur Rahman alias Ovi and Mufti Mainuddin Khaja alias Abu Jandal ‐ were given life terms by Sylhet Divisional Speedy Trial Tribunal on December 23, 2008.

A Sylhet court is currently hearing another case filed under the Explosives Act.

"After the release of the verdict there is no bar to carry out the death sentences as all the convicts are now in jail, unless they file an appeal with the Appellate Division," Deputy Attorney General Sheikh AKM Moniruzzaman Kabir told news hounds.

The High Court started the hearing on January 6 this year. Hearings were held for nine days. The convicts filed their appeals against the lower court sentence in 2009.

Three people, including a police assistant sub-inspector were killed while former high commissioner Anwar and 70 others were maimed in grenade attacks after the Jumma prayers at the shrine of Hazrat Shahjalal in Sylhet on May 21, 2004.

Born in Sunamganj and a naturalised British citizen, Anwar served as the British high commissioner to Bangladesh from 2004 to 2008. He is currently serving as the Ambassador to Peru.

-F (JUI-F) has said that Madressah is a fort of Islam and a peaceful place.

Talking to news hounds at the Jamia Ashrafia here on Tuesday, he said seminaries imparted a lesson of peace, tolerance, love, affection and the religion.

He said turbans were anti-state and bereft of any religion and terrorism should be rooted out of the country.

He accused the secular forces of hatching conspiracies ‘for dollars’ and said only an Islamic system would make the country a better place to live.

Maulana Fazl said holy mans were the first to step forward for protecting the country in times of crises and the seminaries would foil all conspiracies.

JUI-F chief calls for making Pakistan a true Islamic welfare state
2016-03-31
[DAWN] Jamaat Ulema-e-Islam
...a pak religious party. It is usually part of the govt, never part of the solution...
(JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman
Deobandi holy man, known as Mullah Diesel during the war against the Soviets, his sympathies for the Taliban have never been tempered by honesty ...
has called for making Pakistain a true Islamic welfare state and introducing the Islamic system in the country.

He was addressing the 77th annual Dastar-e-Fazeelat Conference at the Jamia Mazharul Uloom, Manzilgah, on Tuesday. The conference was presided over by caretaker of Dargah Halejvi Sharif, Abdul Samad Halejvi.

The JUI-F chief said his party opposed moves to promote secularism in the country. He claimed that Pakistain was created in the name of Islam and solution of country’s all problems lied in following the guidelines provided in the Koran and Sunnah. Introduction of secular ideas in the name of moderation and progressive thoughts could not be accepted, he added.

He criticised the rulers and some politicians for what he called promoting secular ideas in the country. He accused the rulers of handing over the affairs of the country in the hands of international NGOs.

The JUI-F chief said international conspiracies were being hatched against the Islamic world and madressahs (religious seminaries). Some politicians and NGOs are trying to portray a bad picture of madressahs and they are forcing the government to take action against them. He claimed that raids had been conducted on thousands of madressahs, but not a single terrorist was found there.

Maulana Fazl held the West, particularly the United States, responsible for bloodshed in Islamic countries and said the United Nations
...an organization conceived in the belief that we're just one big happy world, with the sort of results you'd expect from such nonsense...
had failed in finding solutions of international disputes which was the main cause of unrest in different parts of the world.

India-Pakistan
State vs clerics
2016-03-17
[DAWN] THE religious right in the country is once again in a state of fervent agitation. Ostensibly, this is because the Punjab
1.) Little Orphan Annie's bodyguard
2.) A province of Pakistain ruled by one of the Sharif brothers
3.) A province of India. It is majority (60 percent) Sikh and Hindoo (37 percent), which means it has relatively few Moslem riots....

Assembly recently passed a historic women’s rights law. Yet, other provinces have passed similar, arguably more robust, laws in recent times and there has been little outcry. The difference this time may be the straits the religious right has found itself in and its urgent need to put pressure on the federal government -- the PML-N -- to reverse policies that have caused it to lose ground in the public arena. The signs are several. The conference convened by the Jamaat-e-Islami
...The Islamic Society, founded in 1941 in Lahore by Maulana Sayyid Abul Ala Maududi, aka The Great Apostosizer. The Jamaat opposed the independence of Bangladesh but has operated an independent branch there since 1975. It maintains close ties with international Mohammedan groups such as the Moslem Brotherhood. the Taliban, and al-Qaeda. The Jamaat's objectives are the establishment of a pure Islamic state, governed by Sharia law. It is distinguished by its xenophobia, and its opposition to Westernization, capitalism, socialism, secularism, and liberalist social mores...
in Mansoora on Tuesday saw many speakers veer away from the Punjab law and condemn the hanging of Mumtaz Qadri and the clampdown on the activities of the Tableeghi Jamaat. More remarkably, in attendance were avowed anti-democrats like Hafiz Saeed
...founder of Lashkar-e-Taiba and its false-mustache offshoot Jamaat-ud-Dawa. The United Nations declared the JuD a terrorist organization in 2008 and Hafiz Saeed a terrorist as its leader. Hafiz, JuD and LeT are wholly-owned subsidiaries of the Pak intel apparatus, so that amounted to squat...
, whose interest in parliamentary democracy is nil. The constellation of ignominy that gathered in Mansoora clearly has wider goals than simply nullification of a pro-women law.

The recent fulminations of Fazlur Rehman, the JUI-F chief, give an indication of what those wider goals may be. In evoking the spectre of a PNA-style opposition alliance, the maulana appears to be seeking unity of the religious right so as to put concerted pressure on the centre, with the intention of either bringing down the federal government or aggressively increasing the public space for the religious right and its Lion of Islam partners. Behind those grand schemes lies a harsh reality: the JUI-F and its political and Lion of Islam cohorts face an existential crisis. The National Action Plan made explicit for the first time the need to combat religiously motivated militancy and also called for the regulation of the sprawling network of madressahs across the country. In truth, however, the slow collision between the state and religious right had already begun. The infamous outburst of Munawar Hassan in November 2013, in which the former JI chief condemned Pak soldiers drawing a sharp response from the military, may have set the parameters of conflict and dissent.

What remains to be seen is how firm the PML-N will stand in this ideological conflict between the forces of regression and those on the right side of history. Pakistain must return to the vision of its founding father and become the progressive, modern and thoroughly democratic country that the Quaid wanted it to be. Thus far, the PML-N has surprised with its willingness to dabble in more progressive and forward-thinking politics. Yet, its mettle has not truly been tested. The Punjab Assembly is little more than a rubber stamp for the Sharif family’s pet projects. The hanging of Mumtaz Qadri was cleared by the courts. Now comes the real baptism of fire -- stand firm and stand tall against the religious right and the PML-N will earn itself a place in history. Crumble now and history will be less forgiving.

Religious parties denounce law protecting women from abuse as 'un-Islamic'
2016-03-16
[DAWN] An all-parties conference convened by Jamaat-e-Islami
...The Islamic Society, founded in 1941 in Lahore by Maulana Sayyid Abul Ala Maududi, aka The Great Apostosizer. The Jamaat opposed the independence of Bangladesh but has operated an independent branch there since 1975. It maintains close ties with international Mohammedan groups such as the Moslem Brotherhood. the Taliban, and al-Qaeda.

It is distinguished by its xenophobia, and its opposition to Westernization, capitalism, socialism, secularism, and liberalist social mores...
and attended by powerful religious groups asked the government on Tuesday to retract an "un-Islamic" law that gives unprecedented protection to female victims of violence.

The Women's Protection Act, passed by Punjab
1.) Little Orphan Annie's bodyguard
2.) A province of Pakistain ruled by one of the Sharif brothers
3.) A province of India. It is majority (60 percent) Sikh and Hindoo (37 percent), which means it has relatively few Moslem riots....

Assembly last month, gives legal protection to women from domestic, psychological and sexual violence.

It also calls for the creation of a toll-free abuse reporting hot line, women's shelters and district-level panels to investigate reports of abuse and mandates the use of GPS bracelets to keep track of offenders.

Domestic abuse, economic discrimination and acid attacks made Pakistain the world's third most dangerous country in the world for women, a 2011 Thomson Rooters Foundation expert poll showed.

But since the law's passage, many conservative holy mans and religious leaders have denounced it as being in conflict with the Holy Koran, and the Constitution.

On Tuesday, representatives of more than 35 religious parties and groups came together for a conference called by the Jamaat-e-Islami and condemned the women's protection law as un-Islamic.

"The controversial law to protect women was promulgated to accomplish the West's agenda to destroy the family system in Pakistain," read the joint declaration issued at the end of the concrescence.

"This act ... is redundant and would add to the miseries of women."

The passage of the new law was welcomed by rights groups but spirits have since dampened as conservative voices have increasingly called for its retraction.

On Monday, JUI-F chief Fazlur Rehman said Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif
... served two non-consecutive terms as prime minister, heads the Pakistain Moslem League (Nawaz). Noted for his spectacular corruption, the 1998 Pak nuclear test, border war with India, and for being tossed by General Musharraf...
had promised him at a meeting that he would address the reservations of religious parties.

"Nawaz Sharif heard our reservations against the Punjab Protection of Women Against Violence Act 2016. He promised to amend the law so that it doesn't contravene the teachings of the Holy Koran," Fazl told journalists at his residence.

Earlier this month, the Council of Islamic Ideology, a religious body that advises the government on the compatibility of laws with Islam, declared the Women's Protection Act un-Islamic.

A prominent lawyer has also filed a petition in the top sharia court asking it to strike down the law.

The religious parties had opposed the bill and demanded the government should withdraw it.

"Rana Sanaullah says that the people do not cast their vote for religious parties but I want to make it clear to Sanaullah that though we are not in a position to form the government, we are able to derail the government whenever we want," he said while talking to the media here on Tuesday.

Fazl said the government should introduce legislation under which a person who committed blasphemy against the Holy Prophet be punished automatically and people might not have to take law in their hands. He said a meeting of religious elements would be called soon over the issues of the protection of religious seminaries and Women Protection Act to devise future line of action.

The JUI-F chief said the Women Protection Act passed by the Punjab

2.) A province of Pakistain ruled by one of the Sharif brothers
3.) A province of India. It is majority (60 percent) Sikh and Hindoo (37 percent), which means it has relatively few Moslem riots....

Assembly was against the constitution, law and Islamic teachings.

"We reject all such laws and will continue to play our role to protect the Sharia as such laws usually are introduced to fulfill the foreign agenda," he said.
