Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman on Saturday declared it ‘haram’ to vote in favour of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan and his candidates.

Imran Khan, according to Fazl, is being sponsored by the West and the Jewish lobby.

Fazlur Rehman used every word that would foment hatred against any person in the conservative masses of Pakistan. He called Imran an agent of “Americans, Jews, Ahmadis and a person of ill character”.

“A person who could not make his own children Muslim nor Pakistani, is dreaming of becoming prime minister of Pakistan and making the country an Islamic welfare state,” Maulana said.

“The Yahoodi (Jewish) lobby’s money is working (for Imran),” he said.

“I am asked, ‘what is the proof that he (Imran Khan) is an agent of the Jews,’ I say there is only one proof and it is my own responsible personality. I am so righteous that I would never talk ill against anyone. This is enough that Maulana Fazlur Rehman says that he is a Jewish agent.”

He went on to give a joint declaration of the clerics belonging to the JUI-F. “We the Ulema have agreed that giving vote to PTI is haram.

Anyone who casts his or her vote for Imran or to a person who is contesting election on the ticket on PTI is involved in haram and such a person is going against Sharia,” the chief of the JUI-F said.

    Judging by sheer childish, nonsensical and irresponsible nature of his comments, can anyone in Pakistan take this absurd mullah seriously and vote for him. Now you know why Pakistan is going down the drain; too many bird brains. Recommend

    I don’t know why the Maulana is making fool of himself. He could have said anything but agent of jews. We, the Pakistani public, understand its election time and mud slinging is our norm. Can politicians talk with reasons. instead of giving just statements. Election commission should made a rule of no scathing of opponents. Talk what they can do to the public or what they have done in the past. Can Maulana Falz mention what they have done in so many years of their political career. I urge and request the politicians to talk on issues and what their plans are to take care of that so that we can questions them if they fail to deliver.

If u r the righteous person then take retirement from politics and do some favour for people of Pakistan. U dont have enough support in Pakistan apart from 4 seats that u win , i dont think even 4 seats will be won by you this time. People are not fool to take ur private fatwas that has nothing to do with Islam , it is specifically ( Fatwas) meant to give you perk and privileges by fooling People to elect you again.

    The show of disrespect by Imran for almost every other politician in the country is not a good Omen. As a highly educated individual he could have set a high Bar of standards and ethics in politics. The way, I see politics is a pond of filth surrounded by all politicians throwing stones in it without realizing that they are also embracing part of what they want their counterparts to have. THIS IS WHAT IS CALLED DIRTY POLITICS.

    This idiot has forgotten about the proof that exists against him for being an American agent. From Wikileaks:

    At one point in the conversation, Rehman asked the Ambassador if the USG would deal with him if he was elected as Prime Minister and cautioned the USG not to put all of its eggs in the basket of Benazir Bhutto. Ambassador noted that it was not USG policy to crown any particular leader in Pakistan….Rehman indicated his desire to travel to the U.S. and suggested he could lobby the Congress and American think tanks “as well as Benazir Bhutto.”

What religion Imran children follows is quite clear from their names and this is his personal life. What we need here is a sincere and presentable leader to run the affairs of Pakistan. Maulana should devote his time more in eradication of corruption from the society.

Last year he said that Malala Yousaufzai arranged the attack on herself because she too is a drama. Just because he has a long beard he is allowed to give fatwas?

    And interestingly there are thousands or perhaps millions who will buy this non sense. This is why Khan had to clarify his position on Qadiyanis. His stance is that he will abide by the constitution of Pakistan which declares Qadiyanis as non muslims.

    It was interesting to see people’s comments. Khan never said he will prosecute Ahmedis or treat them as second class citizens. There are other minorities in Pakistan as well and all are Pakistanis.


  • Matin A Khan
    May 5, 2013 - 2:09PM

  • link
    May 5, 2013 - 2:22PM

    I don’t get the link between trying to portray himself as truthful and piuos and stating its a proof that Imran is an agent. Truthful people only make allegations when they see a clear evidence and not based on their inner feelings and hatred and political disputes backed by no evidence.

    Maulana has also proved that he is not truthful or pious.

So he is saving his own NA-25 and some seats for party in Lucky, Karak and Bannu may be. He did this coz I think he is now Afraid of IK, not that he is winning but may be cutting his own conservative vote. He is a player, and this will work for him.

    Here are some facts:

    If voted into power, Imran will work for the rights of the non-Ahmadiyya Pakistanis only

    Imran is a playboy-turned-jihadist reborn so called Muslim whose 2 children are being raised by his ex-jewish wife. This is the same one who is talking about becoming Prime Minister of an Islamic welfare state.

You should declare a “Fitwa” against those who are using Islam as a political card to keep the illiterate masses as illiterates and cash their illiteracy. Moreover, who has given you the “Fitwa “to present your personality as a symbol of “Honesty and righteousness”?

How odd it is, taking monetary aids from America is okay for Asif Ali Zardari but Imran Khan can’t do the same thing! No wonder that this country is in complete ruins, with people like Mualana Sahib we might ever be able to see the day of light. Releasing a Fatwah for every thing THEY are against! This is Islam, not a joke, that a guy keeps on inventing fatwahs as if it is just a school essay! Please JUI-F, if you really are that good Muslims, consider giving a little respect to the religion and a little liberty to the people in voting their CHOICE.

    PTI supporters aren’t hypocrites.

    Although Mualana went too far but his comments regarding PTI’s finaces are hundred percent correct. Imran has no income of his own, his close associates such as SMQ don’t believe in giving anything and his young supporters have no source of income except pocket money, which parents hardly afford these days, therefore huge amounts which Imran is spending need explanation.

    All those saying that it is hypocritical of Imran who has “inflicted” hatred onto the Ahmedi’s. You my friend’s are on the extreme end of the spectrum! No where in his video did he mention of inflicting hatred much rather defended the constitution (Which frankly all of us here have to abide by). The constitution upholds all the minority rights and so does the PTI manifesto. It is a matter of implementation.
    All of you tend to be self proclaimed liberals and flare up by any religious matter. Please understand you live in a predominantly religious and conservative society.
    No where has Imran or the PTI inflicted hatred.
    Secularism vs Otherwise is another debate altogether.
    But keeps in the realms of reality that reign our country. It is the truth that they may be deemed non-muslims upholding the fundamentals of the very religion itself. So much rather, keep in mind how ones political success is in the hands of our somewhat bigoted majority and us the few sitting on our computers are somewhat a voice in the wilderness.

I am positive that Pakistanis are no more in awe of the obscurantist segment of the society and you and other political dinosaurs will soon be rendered obsolete.
