Strongly condemn those morons in Badami Bagh Lahore who were involved in attacks on our Christian friends. These people only bring disgrace to Islam and its followers.
People have the right to exercise their religion especially when Quran has given us clear directions about freedom of religion and justice.
“There is no compulsion in religion” (Al-baqarah, 256)
“O ye who believe! Be steadfast witnesses for Allah in equity, and let not hatred of any people seduce you that ye deal not justly. Deal justly, that is nearer to your duty. Observe your duty to Allah. Lo! Allah is Informed of what ye do.” [Al-maeda ,8]
It seems these mobs are often backed by land grabbers or other mafias who create such situation to drive away these poor people using blasphemy.On many occasions, Muslims become the victim of other Muslims accusing them of blasphemy to settle business, personal, sectarian or other rivalries.Those who use blasphemy thing for their political or economic favors should be charged with blasphemy. what bigger blasphemy can it be than using the name of Deen to benefit their Dukaan.
If they think they are serving Islam then the should think that non-Muslim citizens in an Islamic (at least by name Pakistan is Islamic) are protected minority and harming them is a serious crime and sin.
Bukhari :: Book 4 :: Volume 53 :: Hadith 391
Narrated ‘Abdullah bin ‘Amr:
The Prophet (S.A.W) said, “Whoever killed a person having a treaty with the Muslims, shall not smell the smell of Paradise though its smell is perceived from a distance of forty years.”
