Karachi: October 12, 2017. (PCP) The wave of anger and fear spread among religious minorities after speech of one of ruling party Pakistan Muslim League PML (N) leader in National Assembly of Pakistan on October 10, 2017.
Captain (Rtd) Safdar, who is son in law of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif criticized the renaming of Quaid-e-Azam University Physics Centre after Professor Dr Abdus Salam, a Pakistani Ahmadiyyia community individual who won Nobel Prize.
“These people [Ahmadis] are a threat to this country, its constitution and ideology. This situation is heading towards a dangerous point,” said Safdar in his speech.
Mr. Safdar added “Pakistan was created with an ideology to protect the finality of Prophethood [Khatm-i-Naboowat] so Islam is practiced here”
Captain retired Safdar went further ahead and demanded signature of employees entering in Pakistan Armed Forces, Pakistan Supreme Court, Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission and other department on declaration of Khatm-i-Naboowat that non-Muslim may be set away from national security institutions.
The Christians, Ahmadi, Hindus and other religious minorities were declared Non-Muslims under Amendment 18th in constitution of Islamic Republic of Pakistan.
Dr. Nazir S Bhatti, President of Pakistan Christian Congress PCC have strongly condemned hate speech of Capt. (Rtd.) Safdar and termed if against ideology of Pakistan.
“He urged political forces to raise voice against hate speech of ruling party MNA which has created issues of safety and security of members of religious minorities in Pakistan” added Nazir Bhatti
The Founder of Masehi Inqalabi Tehreek, Ex-Chairman Standing Committee on Minority Affairs Sindh and Former Member Provincial Assembly Sindh Mr. Saleem Khursheed Khokhar criticized the speech of Capt. (R) Safdar in the National Assembly of Pakistan wherein he called for a ban on hiring Ahmadis in the armed forces and other important institutions of the country.
He said his speech was discrimination for the minorities of Pakistan. A democratic state gives equal status and rights to all its citizen. Probably the constitution of Pakistan itself declares equal rights for all. He said would Capt. (R) Safdar accept different treatment and persecution for himself and his family based on religion in a non-Muslim majority country.
He said Nawaz Sharif and his party has a history of using dirty politics to capture the extremist vote bank.
He said why he is not talking about corruption. He just wants to divert attention of people’s from corruption of his family. He demanded that Captain (R) Safdar speech should be expunged and due action should be taken against him.
