Barelvi clerics condemn attacks on minorities in Pakistan


Barilly: Ittehad-e-Millat party leader Maulana Tauqeer Raza Khan and Maulana Shahabuddin Razvi Bareilvi, secretary general of Ulma-e-Islam, expressed concern over attacks on minorities in Pakistan.

Referring to the recent incident in which a Sikh girl was allegedly forced to marry and convert, the clerics said no one can be forced to adopt Islam by force or greed.

The clerics called on Pakistan to stop such activities and added that some organizations work against the tenets of Islam and such activities should be labeled as “anti-Islam”.

They said that Islam had spread across the world due to its tenets and co-existed with other religions which together form the ‘Ganga-Jamuni Tehzeeb’ of India.

“There is no rule of law in Pakistan and people engage in activities in the name of religion, giving Islam a bad name. If they had true knowledge of religion, they would not have done such activities. Suh people should read books written by Ala Hazrat in order to gain knowledge,” they said.

In the press statement, the clerics further said that the destruction of temples and other shrines in Pakistan is a highly condemnable act which is not permitted in Islam.

“Such activities tarnish the image of the religion and Muslims living in other countries must pay the price,” they said.
