How Pakistani Active Extremists Complicate the Fight Against Islamic Extremism?

Pakistan: October 20, 2017. (PCP) Reportedly, the Cheif of Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Sirajul Haq expressed at the Khatm-e-Nabuwwat (Finality of Prophethood) conference on Wednesday that Malik Mumtaz Hussain Qadri, the killer of ex-Governor Salman Taseer had been executed by the Government for expressing his love for Prophet of Islam.

Qadri was hanged to death last year on 29th February.He was hailed as a hero of Islam and now a new trend was being spread in the Muslim youth in Pakistan to follow the Qadri’s execution to get written their names in the list of lovers of the Islamic Prophet Muhammad.

Salman Taseer was the sitting governor of Punjab when he was assassinated in broad daylight by his own body guard,Malik Mumtaz Hussain Qadri. He was accused of blasphemy laws after his ardent criticism of the misuse of blasphemy laws against the death convicted a Christian woman, Asia Bibi, to whom he met in jail and who is still languishing in jail.

The chief of Jamaat-e-Islami has put oil on the fire of Islamic extremism by encouraging and instigating Qadri's supporters to follow the example of Qadri's love for Prophet of Islam by killings critics of blasphemy laws.

In the beginning of this year, one of Qadri's supporters, Ali Khan, threatened Sardar Mushtaq Gill, HRD lawyer and head of LEAD, a group who has supported a number of blasphemy accused including Asia Bibi and advocating for repeal of blasphemy laws, via Facebook, in these words, to be saved and now is your turn as here is another Mumtaz Qadri {Bachh...beta ab teri bhi bari ane wali hai....... Mumtaz Qadri hai Ek or yahan}.

Resulantantly, to root out the poison of extremism in Pakistan is going to be as impossible as to repeal the blasphemy laws which sole purpose is to impose death penalty on those who do not have faith in Islamic Prophet Muhammad and in the Islamic faith of finality of Prophethood because it is the faith of majority who consider Pakistan as fortress of Islam.

Pakistan was not originally created in the name of religion because the most of the founding members were secular and progressive in their approach. But later we have seen a gradual transformation towards a fire of radical Islamic state in which for years religious minorities could not escape feelings of suffocation.

These are the Active Extremists powers who are complicating the country's fight against Islamic Extremism and for the repeal of blasphemy laws. The poison of Extremism from Pakistan could not be rooted out until the repeal of the blasphemy laws.
