Tehreek Nafaz Fiqh-e-Jafariya and its subordinate organisations are not amongst the banned outfits - Hamid Moosavi

ISLAMABAD, January 15: The Patron-in-Chief of Supreme Shia Ulema Board and chief of Tehreek Nafaz Fiqh-e-Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has said that Tehreek Nafaz Fiqh-e-Jafariya and any organisation attached with us is not among the banned outfits. The Interior Minister has caused damage to our reputation; the Interior Minister should have studied the NACTA list, and should put the blame on media or anchor persons when the Interior Minister of the State himself is unaware of the banned organisation. The report of Justice Esa Faiz Commission has proved true. Our fault is that we unveiled those who are business of hatred and terrorism by receiving foreign aid since 1980 and we are still doing that job. The Interior Minister has declared those as patriotic, in enthusiasm of oratory and love for them who raise the slogans of killing hundreds of persons and terming them ‘Kafir, Kafir’ that raises a question mark? He should not provide shield to some sects to save a few groups and it does not suit the Federal Interior Minister to defend those who carry out terrorism in the garb of sectarian groups. Parties were banned not for their link to sects but on the basis of their terrorist activities. To whom the Interior Minister is giving awards of piousness their crime is not just to name any sect but also announcements to kill hundred in place of one. How can those who are earning billions by providing sleepers to terrorists, giving the motherland a bloodbath and distributing Fatwas of atheism be patriotic? These views were expressed by him while addressing the emergent meeting of the Core Committee of the Tehreek Nafaz Fiqh-e-Jafariya.

Agha Moosavi said whether terrorism, murder and arson are sectarian, lingual, provincial, water and international, is terrorism. He made it clear that representing any sect or link with it is not a crime but insulting the humanity and trampling it in the garb of sect, religion, province, nationality or a country is a great sin. He said Quran is openly saying that human beings have been divided into tribes so that they could be recognised. He said Shias and Sunnis are two recognised sects of Islam having branches of the same and there are five big fiqhs that exist for the last 1400 years and are like a bouquet. He said that under the Article 2 of the consensus 1973 Constitution, Pakistan’s official religion is Islam and under its Article 227 the meaning and explanation of Quran and Sunnah will be the same that will be authentic before the concerned fiqh. He said terrorism or extremism should not be linked with any fiqh. We are saying for the last 40 years that a terrorist is only a terrorist and keeps no Maslak, sect or a country and should be tackled in the same context.

The TNFJ chief said that the terrorist organisations are creation of Ziaul Haq and his remnants. Till the Musharraf era, all banned parties were roaming about freely and for the first time in 2002, in the era of Pervez Musharraf some parties spreading hatred and terrorism had been declared banned, he said adding that every coming government afterwards, used to increase the number of such organisations but none of the government took any action against these banned organisations. He said the same reason is behind the unsuccessful National Action Plan formed after the APS Peshawar incident. 

The Quaid-i-Millat Jafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said that we were the first to raise voice against those who are polluting the Pakistan’s air with poison by receiving aid from foreign countries. We are reiterating our demands for putting restrictions on taking part in elections on sectarian, Maslaki and lingual basis since 1980s but all government, keeping to their own interest and reservations treated these terrorist organisations lightly as a result of which the terrorism has not ended even today. He said the slogans of ‘Shia Kafir’ and ‘Barelvi Mushrik’ were also being raised on the desire of the rulers. The atheist slogans were also raised in Islamabad on the desire of the government which is tragic, he added.
