LAHORE: Saturday marked the first death anniversary of Maulana Sarfraz Naeemi, who was killed in a suicide bomb attack in Lahore.

Maulana Naeemi was known for his moderate view of Islam as well as his strong opposition to the Taliban. Naeemi was of the view that the current Taliban are not Islamic, but are rather supported by the West.

He had received several death threats for such statements and on Friday June 12, 2009 a suicide bomber managed to enter the maulana's office where he detonated a bomb.

Sultan Ahmed | 10 years ago | Reply Short time ago, governor Punjab asserted that some profile, relating to Punjab have relations with terrorists, he provide some documentary proof before the people through media but ignored, now after the conference reality come to the surface that is deeply considerable. Acceptable realty is that insurgents are not Muslims they are in fact black dot on the face of Islam their hands are smeared with blood of innocent people they are not only enemy of Islam but also enemy of Pakistan their total activities are against the solidarity,integrity and security of Pakistan. The matter, as explained in the conference needs inquiry in case they are right in their accusation against the minister the party chief should take sever action otherwise the party would have to face shameful defeat in the forthcoming general election. Pakistan Muslim League(N) have popularity among the people but now being undermined by the evil deed of black sheep in the party should sack them forthwith it is dire need of the time.
Meherzaidi | 10 years ago | Reply It is s so sad that we have lost a soft spoken moderate scholar to hatred and violence. He stood up for the glory of Islam but he never encouraged violence as a means. We still need scholars like him who are non-violent and who gave the right direction.http://meer-mehernewspappar.blogspot.com/search?q=maulana+sarfaraz+naeemi
