LAHORE: Speakers at the Sunni Ittehad Council’s (SIC) National Khatam-i-Nabuwat Conference railed against the death sentence handed to Mumtaz Qadri for the murder of Salmaan Taseer, as well as Ahmedis and America, on Sunday.

SIC Chairman Sahibzada Fazle Karim announced that they would hold a ‘Remove government’ train march from Rawalpindi to Karachi on November 21 to press for Qadri’s release. “We will not let them hang Mumtaz Qadri,” he said to loud cheers. He said that Islam allowed the killing of a blasphemer.

Karim said Ahmedis were conspiring with America against Islam. He said that the SIC would fight for Islamic rule in Pakistan. They would also stop “the US dream of Indian supremacy in the subcontinent” from becoming a reality. He said the Sunni Tehrik was being victimised in Karachi and demanded that the government release its workers and leaders.

Jamat Ahle Sunnat (JAS) Nazim Aala Allama Syed Riaz Hussain Shah also spoke out against Ahmedis, saying they were “agents of anti-Pakistan forces” and involved in anti-state activities.

JAS Ameer Syed Mazhar Saeed Kazmi said appointing Ahmedis to key posts was a violation of the Constitution. He demanded that all Ahmedis be expelled from key posts. He said Ahmedis were created by the British.

At the end of the conference, the participants passed a resolution demanding the government end unemployment and power outages, and the president pardon Mumtaz Qadri.

philosopher | 10 years ago | Reply Shame for labelling ahmadis as agents engaging in anti Pakistan activities.If conspiring against Pakistan means producing the only Nobel laureate of the country (Dr Abdus Salam 1979) - who also established a physics learning institute for scientists from the third world countries; the only Pakistani to become a judge at the International court of justice at Hague (Sir Zafarullah Khan), and many martyrs in the Pakistan movement itself and in the Kashmir war 1948 (Furqan force) and subsequently in the war of 1965( Gen Akhtar malik who nearly got Aknoor for Pakistan) and countless POWs and martys in the war of 1971,and one of the least corrupt and most law abiding citizens of Pakistan, then I guess we need a lot more of these agents to make Pakistan one of the leading nations of the world
