Adil Najam

This man is Yousaf Qureshi of Peshawar and he has publicly offered a reward of Rs. 500,000 (Rs. 5 Lacs; US$5880) to anyone who murders Aasiya Bibi of Nankana.

Yousuf Qureshi has never met or seen Aasiya. Yet, his heart is so full of hatred that he is willing to give anyone, even you, Rs. 500,000 to kill her. By the way, he does not seem to hold you in very high esteem either; he believes that you will be willing to commit murder for him for less than US$6,000. And if you will not, he calls upon the Tehrik-i-Taliban (TTP) to do the killing for him. For around the price of a new Suzuki Mehran VX he wants you to commit murder, make three children orphans, and take a human life. All reports suggest that he is mighty proud of what he is trying to do!

It is incidental to the story that the man who is providing this incitement to murder happens to be a so-called “Maulana” and the khateeb of the historic Masjid Mahabat Khan in Peshawar. It is incidental because at the end of the day neither of those facts are ‘material’ (in a legal sense). What is material is that this man, Yousaf Qureshi, is a criminal (incitement to murder is a crime) and he is providing material incentive to turn others into criminals (killing others is murder, a crime).

It should not matter what you think of Asiya Bibi, or about what should happen to her, or of the Blasphemy law, or indeed of Masjid Mahabat Khan. What matters is that murder is a crime. Inciting others to commit this crime is a crime. Paying or promising to pay others to commit this crime is a crime.

This here is not a matter of theology, it is a matter of the law. And not a matter of constitutional law, but of criminal law. This is a test of our society’s appetite for tolerating criminality in the name of morality. But more than that it is a test of our polity’s ability to implement its own laws. Can the government of the Khyber Pukhtoonkhwa province, sitting in Islamabad, or the government of Pakistan, sitting in Islamabad, ignore this blatant and so very public disregard of the laws of the country? And if they do, what does it say about them, about their own disregard for the most fundamental laws of the land, about our society, and indeed about us?

Maybe the answer is all too predictable. But at least there are voices crying out against this criminality in the name of morality. Here are excerpts from two newspaper editorials. First, from The Express Tribune (Dec. 5):

A cleric in Peshawar has offered Rs500,000 to anyone who will kill a Christian brick-kiln labourer, Aasia Bibi, sentenced to death for blasphemy by a district court. Maulana Yousaf Qureshi of Peshawar’s famous Mahabat Khan Mosque is outraged that some people are talking of letting the accused go free and repealing or amending or procedurally correcting the law that has terrorised minorities in Pakistan and has become a global index of intolerance of the Pakistani state.

It is a measure of the fanatic excess of the said Yousaf Qureshi that he should encourage all citizens to kill with the blandishment of money, reducing Muslims to paid killers while the process of law is unfolding in the case of Aasia Bibi. Confirming fears that some Pakistani clergy is interfacing with terrorists, he has called on the “mujahideen and Taliban” to kill her, probably knowing that the ferocious terrorist of Bajaur, Maulvi Faqir Mohammad, had already made a statement to that effect earlier.

Maulana Qureshi belongs to the Deobandi seminary of Jamia Ashrafia that arose as one of the powerful sectarian madrassas under the patronage of General Zia in the 1980s, even issuing a fatwa against the Shia during the rise of Sipah-e-Sahaba in the country. Qureshi says: “No president, no parliament and no government has the right to interfere in the tenets of Islam.” But the fact is that it is parliament that has made the law, and since parliament is subject to human folly it is equally subject to correction.

… In the case of Aasia Bibi, mitigation was present but was not allowed. The Christian woman was extremely poor, possessed minimal consciousness, and not literate enough to understand what was happening to her. A higher court may soon decide that mitigation was present but was ignored by the district court for various reasons. In many past cases, the lower courts were seen to be under pressure from extremist clerics present inside and outside the court. No one has ever been hanged for blasphemy in Pakistan. Judicially speaking, no one has committed blasphemy in Pakistan since the coming into force of this law. But innocent people have been made to suffer.

Next, this editorial from The News (Dec. 5):

… Whatever the outcome of the Aasia Bibi case, she and her family are marked as targets for the rest of their lives and she will never be able to live as a free woman, if pardoned, in Pakistan. Her case is the subject of appeal and therefore subjudice, making comment difficult, but it is not difficult to robustly condemn the calls for extrajudicial killings that are so beloved of certain individuals and groups. A spokesman for the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa government said that as the case was still in the courts its decision “would be acceptable to everyone.”

His statement is one of almost unbelievable naïveté, because as is so patently obvious to anybody reading a newspaper or watching television that is not the case at all. There is a sizeable portion of the population that might do the bidding of Yousuf Qureshi and feel entirely justified in their actions if they did. A voice of reason was supplied by Latif Afridi, a former president of the Peshawar High Court Bar Association who, commenting on the maulana’s remarks, said that “nobody in their right mind makes such statements” and that they were … “a mad person’s words and contrary to basic human rights.”

Do we see any action under Article 506 of the Pakistan Penal Code which prohibits open threats to the life of another? We do not – but neither are we seeing much beyond anodyne words from civil society and the ‘usual suspects’ who speak on behalf of minorities. All states have a duty of care to their citizens. Just how much of either duty or care will be afforded to Aasia Bibi is an open question. And it shouldn’t be.

    Good that you are writing about this. Even better to see the two newspaper editorials who take such a strong stand against his idiotic statements. the fact is that the majority of Pakistan is not fanatic but the fanatics capitalize on the silence of the rest of us. So, good to see the silence being broken.

    Is there no law in the country where they could arrest and prosecute this man for inciting people to commit murder?

    How about a suo motu, so often heard from the Black Robes Brigade (BRB) of Pakistan?

    “Whomsoever slays a soul – unless [as a penalty] for manslaughter or causing violence in the earth — it is [for Allah] as though he slew all of humankind.” (al-Quran 5:32) Maulana sahab’s off to kill all of humankind, in the name of the Prophet (sw) — he should be charged with blasphemy.

    As you might have noticed, the front page of ATP features various ‘splash photographs’ related to Pakistan. We rotate these periodically; sometimes to reflect the current content, but often for aesthetics.

    Could someone in their infinite wisdom share with me how does the young girl, surrounded in piety “reflects the current content” or the offers any values in the “aesthetics”?

    The post is about a criminal man, sick man, despicable man, a man imbued in ignorance!

    Is it not?

    Faith is not criminal, believers are not criminals, good decent people are not criminals.

    Criminals are criminals.

    ATP, this is not the first time either; but I pray for the sagacity that this be the last time.

  7. Watan Aziz says:

    MQ, almost half of the Penal Code of Pakistan should be thrown at this man.

    This disgusting man is in violation of sections related to Abetment, Criminal Conspiracy, Offenses Against the State, Offenses Against the Public Tranquility, False Evidence and Offences Against Public Justice, Offences Affecting the Public Health, Safety, Convenience, Decency and Morals, Offences Relating to Religion, Offences Affecting the Human Body, Criminal Force and Assault, of Mischief, Defamation, Criminal Intimidation, Insult and Annoyance, Attempts to Commit Offences.

    And these are part of the Penal Code of Pakistan.

    He should be removed from the masjid.

    He should be incarcerated pending his legal proceedings.

    I know this is not a proper response to this piece, but I kind of wanna say
    ‘How about if I put a bounty on his head. Maybe 5.5 lacs to take him out?’
    Is it possible that even this time, he would go scott free? that no one will bother to stop him, to put him into either the loony-bin or the jail? This entire country is becoming a jumble of assassins in the name of religion!

  10. ATP Fan says:

    Dear ATP editors, can I please please ask you to remove Watan Aziz and his comments. this guy is so pompous, mean and full of himself. A load full of negative energy and he really brings the high standards of this site down. I implore you to return to your earlier high standards of moderation.

    “This here is not a matter of theology, it is a matter of the law. And not a matter of constitutional law, but of criminal law.”

    I would go even further and say that this is a matter of the most basic humanity — insaaniyat. The fact that someone like this person exists is not nearly as scary as the fact that most in our society do not find his words deeply offensive.

    More power to the Moolah-s. We deserve them! My President – Maulana Yousaf Qureshi, my vote for Tehrik-e-Taliban. Why waste perfectly good time, effort and money on resolving such petty issues as sectarianism, resource allocation, debt repayment, inflation, currency devaluation, taxation, etc.. Lets all join our hand together and get rid of first the jews, then the christians, then the ahmedis, then the shias, then the deobandis, then the other 71 sects, then the persons that dont have faces that we like, then the ones that are black, blue, white, indigo, then all our problems will be resolved….. By the grace of Maulana Yousaf’s Allah.

    Few points I would like to make:-

    1. Under Sharia and Islamic law Blasphemy ONLY applies to muslim you cannot hold a non muslim on this, by the very fact if they did not dispute islam they will be muslims anyway.

    2. I would seriously question the education and qualification credentials of most of Jahil mullahs, anyone who has studied can only spread love, peace and harmony, deny this message and you are not a muslim.

    3. incitement to murder is a crime under any judicial or penal system why is this half wit of a monkey still free.

    Please ATP do two things :

    1. set up a fund to fight for the freedom of Aasiya Bibi

    2. start a petition to amend the Blasphemy law ti categorically state ” only applicable to Muslims” otherwise it become religious persecution of non muslims which is illegal under sharia.

    I will happily contribute financially to both campaigns.

    <<<<<<<<The Christian woman was extremely poor, possessed minimal consciousness, and not literate enough to understand what was happening to her.<<<<<<

    this is no excuse for her to escape justice…she must be fully conscious and filled with hate when she blasphemed.

    Nice way to get a visa for the United States…these type of incidences and more are becoming a norm of our society…if Mullah is wrong you are too because he hates a blasphemer and loves his prophet while you love the blasphemer and have least respect for the honor of your prophet!!!

    Well, death punishment can only be ordered by Govt. not a single person opinion. So the way he is addressing is not right.

    Some comments from the ATP Facebook Page:

    - “Oh please.”
    - “and then we wonder why we have one calamity after the other over this land. It is called Pakistan, and we have bastards like this ruining it!”
    - “the person should be arrested for it is a crime against the beliefs of Allah, no racism should be used for we are all related under Gods eyes♥”
    - “We as a nation have gone INSANE!”
    - “Why is he still free? he should be behind the bars and never be allowed to lead namaz.”
    - “i am ready to exterminate this Mulla if i get a better offer.”
    - “Oh Allah have mercy on us. Because we are at a time where the great teaching of your beloved Prophet Mohammed (Alaihi Al Salam ) have simply jeopardized by many who misunderstood and misinterpreted such teachings, and put Islam and Muslims to an embarrassing situation.

    No wonder why the enemies of Islam take good advantage of so many unjustified actions and reactions to criticize as such unfortunate individual practices as being the fundamental teaching of Islam to its followers. I wonder who is to be blamed?!”
    - “lanti mulla”
    - “I actually wish I could give you 5.5 to take him out and live with it. :s what a religious retard!!!”
    - “Iss Mulla mein agar dam he to Cartoon banane wale ko pakar k laay, corruption or Injustice k lie khara ho…. Aasia Bibi ne agar kuch bura kaha bhi he to councling honi chahyee na k gardan hi utaar d”
    - “‎:|”
    - “if she has disgraced prophrt MUHAMMAD , then she deserves to die”
    - “The People who blindly get provoked and say Asia Bibi has disgraced Our Prophet(SAWW).I want to ask the munafik people of my country how many times daily do we disgrace the teachings of our Prophet by disobeying HIM in all we do.tell me one Sunnah that u follow !! R u following Him in the way he thought ??,dealt with family,neighbours,people in general,with money with orphans with women,ur prayers,the weak,with ur enemies,with ur commitments,cutoms traditions,language,our system…the list goes on.Just look into the Mirror First”
    - “And who will vouch for that you? You? Or some lunatic who doesn’t understand how seriously and sinful it is to bear false witness let alone understand Islam!”
    - “This is only in sub-continent that people are so emotional. Humnhan Nabbi Pak sa AQEDAT to ha par Muhabbat naee. because AQEDAT ka sath agar mohabat shamail na ho to it always leads toward extremism that we are witnessing right now in Pakistan.”
    - “This man needs a bounty on his head”
    - “honesty is not a license to impoliteness. We should always choose appropriate words no matter how good our intentions are. Otherwise you will be rejected straight away no matter how much logical you may be!”
    - “Furthermore, no one in the list above is against Islam or NABI Pak ( peace be upon him). i believe all are against these type of religious scluves who are propagating a very negative image of Islam to the outside world – which is converting to Islam on a very rapid pace.. i afraid that 80 % of the protesters even don’t know about the true story related to Asia bibi. waisay be to Paksitan main ISLAM ko hameshan apnay zaati mafad ka lya use kia gya ha”

    This man is the true face of this religion. A religion of hatred and violence. I have been a muslim for 24 years but it was people like these who showed me the pitfall of this religion and all the other faiths. now i detest islam and pity all those lost souls who follow it. This man thinks his action will bring glory to his faith although in reality all he ends up doing is to hurry the demise of Islam. Humanity cannot be fooled for too long.’Islam’ means peace..they keep telling us. well the only peace they offer is the silence after all opposing voices of truth have been massacared.

    This is a sad state of affairs. Pakistan has been reduced to a state where mullahs can call upon common citizens to incite hatred, and commit murder. Society has been reduced to a lawless society without any morality. The big question is what are we doing besides writing about it and trying to create awareness. We have all been educated in Pakistan, and have benefitted from the system there – is it time for us to work and empower the people of Pakistan who can stand up to these goons, and bring back the Pakistan we all love to dream about ???

    This man shuld be put behind bars and prosecuted for:

    1) “Tohin e Islam”
    2) Spreading of hatred and jahalat
    3) Leading masses against each other
    4) Taking the law into his own hands
    5) Immorality
    6) And depriving a private person of her basic human rights

    As a leader for a community, he is a role model. Therefore his punishment shuld be accordingly.

    Then we would possibly have a more broad based debate about the blasphemy law..

    No body has noticed that the killer mullah is ‘Qureshi’. He must be belonging to ‘Jamiyat-Al-Quresh’, an organization of butchers who must have taken Asiya Bibi as a goat, not a human being. Perhaps all pakies are goats for the mullah ‘qasaayies’ to be exterminated for the honour of religion. Has not Islam, the religion of ‘Rehmatul-aalimin’, turned into the cult of ‘Kaali-Devi’ in Pakistan by the fanatic butcher mullahs? What has Syed Iftikhar Hussain, a Minister of KPK and Ch. Iftikhar, CJ of the Supreme court, have to say in this regard?

    Yusuf Qureshi should be investigated as well, he thinks that by putting up reward money to have Asiya Bibi assassinated he will be serving Islam.We have fanatics everywhere more so in Pakistan.

    For your information Jinnah had appeared only in the appeal of Ilam Deen, the Ghazi Shaheed, who had denied having committed the murder of Raj Pal during his trial.

    Any how they, Iqbal and Jinnah, both were professional lawyers and had every right to take any case, which did not imply that they support the crime committed by their client.

    In this case a Butcher Khaah Makhah is committing a crime openly by offering money for murdering a poor woman who already stands sentenced to death. Isi ko to kehtey hein ‘Murey ko maare Shah Madaar’.

    This blasphemy law is stupid. It’s Mullahs like this that control Pakistan by their PR. They’re always there and ready to serve the illeterate public and infuse their dangerous propaganda. The govt. should match their omnipresence and heal the public of the slumber into which the Mullah has driven them.

    Real leaders who are willing to stand up against Mullahs would be needed. But with the public on their side, not like Lal Masjid-style operations.

    While it may be true in a pure legal sense, I think you are being too charitable in saying that being a mullah is in any way incidental here. This inbred dimwit is doing what most others in his profession have been doing for at least 20+ years now: aiding and perpetrating murders in the name of religion. It is a shame that such mockery of justice is not enough to trigger any soul searching in the society. If anything, this will probably boost the khairaat revenue going into his pocket.

    @readinglord: you had nothing else to say to make your argument a bit stronger?

    can you tell me why would mr.Jinnah even think to accept his “client” while he did not agree with his action(as per your claim)? by your logic ,this negates the term professionalism itself.

    You referred Allama, Allama at the time of his funeral said: “This uneducated young man has surpassed us,the educated ones.”

    A friendly advise, Don’t learn about Jinnah from the lunatic who advertises himself as a Jinnah specialist on Internet forums like Pak Tea House.

    “can you tell me why would mr.Jinnah even think to accept his “client” while he did not agree with his action(as per your claim)? by your logic ,this negates the term professionalism itself.”

    What action of the client? His client in this case, Ilam Din, had denied having committed the murder of RP in his statement before a magistrate (A record of this statement must be available in LHC, as a photo copy of it I saw in a book published by Jang Publications about ID). It was not for the lawyer to judge that his client was lying. It was only after the sentence that ID started repenting having lied in the court on being coaxed by his father. Which of his statement should one believe?

    Interestingly, there was a lawyer named Ain Fatmy, in Atak City, who claimed to be a ‘Rasool’ and worked as a lawyer. Once when a client of his was giving his statement in the court he got up and said,”My lord, my client is lying”. And this was naturally the end of his practice as a lawyer. He however continued preaching as a ‘Rasool’ till his murder in his home. Keisey keisey log hein khuda ki makhlook!

    @readinglord: you need to check your books. It was all over that Jinnah asked him to REFUSE the charges of killing that hindu fascist but ilm deen did not and he proudly admitted to kill the guy. You are continuously failing to prove that Jinnah was a radical liberal like you and other who had no respect and love for Islam. On Ilm Deen’s burial cermony Iqbal said:

    “This uneducated young man has surpassed us, the educated ones.”

    So kindly stop getting education about Jinnah from those who don’t even know about themselves. Don’t act up like Mullahs you despise who declared Jinnah as Kaafir. You liberals are not lesser than Mullahs to declare Jinnah an infidel.

    “@readinglord: you need to check your books.”

    Thank you for your advice. For your information I had read this in a book published by Jang Publications about ID wherein a photocopy of the statement of the accused denying the murder is given and it is also written in that book that ID had repented his false statement which he attributed to the pressure exerted by his father. This was done only after he was sentenced to death on the basis of circumstantial evidence.

    But the question is whether you are interested in idol-worshiping or idol-smashing, or whether you are in search of truth or trying to support lies.
    In the latter case you should have not idolized Jinnah more than ID as the former had in your view advised ID to deny the murder as though his friend Iqbal had eulogized this act of ID. As regards the lawyers in general I have no love lost for them about whom Akbar Allahabadi had said:

    “Peida hua wakil to iblis ne kaha
    Lo aaj ham bhi saahibe aoulaad ho gaey”.

    As regards Sir Mohammad Iqbal he was a poet of the type who were condemned by Allah in His Quran. His poetry is ‘Tazzadaat ka kaarkhana’ (Workshop of contradictions). Do you know why he was knighted by the then British rulers and about redoubtable Zafar Ali Khan had said the following historical couplet:

    “Turkon ne shujaat se Samarna ko kia sar
    Aur Angrez ki dehleez pih Sir ho gaey Iqbal”.

    What a beutiful use of the urdu word ‘sar’ by Z.A. Khan.

    But Iqbal did compose some beautiful poetry, like the following couplet in persian:

    “Choon mi goem musalmaanam balarzam
    Kih daanam mushkilaate ‘Laillah’ ra”

    (I tremble when I say I am a Muslim
    Because I know the troubles the denial of false gods is going to bring upon me”.

    WOW Interesting. So you re slandering Jinnah now? Don’t forget that lawyer in question is not some “Sarak Chaap” lawyer or Barrister like one who writes on PakTeaHouse or says himself a “Jinnah specialist” but discussing about Jinnah himself.

    I don’t it’s hard for you to digest Jinnah fought the case of Ilm deen, the person who would have been labeled as Mullah.Terrorist or a Talibans by radical lefts. And I would repeat what I said earlier that if Jinnah would have alive today, liberals would have started abusing him to fight case of Ilm deen, your last comment is a classical proof of it.

    I have only a couplet from Allamah Iqbal for you now:

    “Kise khabar thi kih le kar charaaghe (hurmate) Mustafvi
    JAHAAN MEIN AAG LAGAATI PHIRE GI BULEHBI (Mullah gardi”

    (The words in parenthesis are mine, with apology to Iqbal)

    کسے خبر تھی کہ لے کر چراغے مصطفوی
    جہاں میں آگ لگاتی پھرے گی بولہبی

    In my view killing in the name of ‘hurmat-e-rasool’ the human beings to save whom from the fire the Prophet, Rehmatul-Aalimin, was

    sent, is the worst kind of blasphemy. Our nation has now proved to be the

    nation of Nooh, Loot or Yazid which deserve to be punished by God himself.

    What else we can expect from a huge number of students coming out of Mad-

    rissahs fired with Ilam Dini lynch culture but to unleash ‘fassaad-fil-arz’ (rampage on the earth)

    and that too in the sacred name of the Prophet, called ‘Rehamatul-Aalimin’

    (Mercy for all the worlds), which is no doubt the worst kind of blasphemy.

    I think we, have no alternative left now, but to appeal to the UN to save the

    mankind from the scourge of the mad mullahs who want to turn Islam, a religion

    of peace, into a lynching cult of the Kali Devi.

    A few months ago an ignorant priest was enticing hatred by planning to burn the Quran. If I compare that man with this, there are some parallels and the first and foremost is that both are using the ignorance of people to propel hate and crime.

    If the priest was able to go through with his plans all he would have been able to burn was a human reproduction of a religious text which according to the Muslim belief is protected by God himself. In case of this bearded baboon if one human being gets killed because of his actions that denies the teaching of the God many believe in.

    Some more comments from the ATP Facebook Page:

    - “They should be tried as inciting violence and the source of their financing should be investigated. This man is enemy of Pakistanis and Pakistan.”
    - “‎’راہبروں میں ھمارے کیوں پاکستانیت نھیں ملتی دیکھے بھی ان کو تو دل کو تمانیت نھیں ملتی’ سچے نام لیوا ھو محمد (صلعم) کے تو ”
    - “iss kou nanga ker kaay puray pakistan kaa chakar lagwana cheyay .. I don’t think killing him resolves anything!”
    - “I would like to know where this khateeb of a mosque got all that money from. I dont think any khateeb in Pakistan makes so much money that they will be willing to offer $6000 for a murder.”
    - “they make lot more money, just not legally.”
    - “If therre is a law in Pakistan against inciting violence and murder and there is sufficient proof against this man then he should be brought to trial.”

    Pakistan’s whole education budget is eaten up by people like Salman Taseer, Zardari, the Sharifs, the Chaudrys and Musharraf. What do you expect from these people. Had these billionaires not eaten up the public money, things would have been different. More chaos will follow.

    “What a weak prophet who needs protection.”

    What to say of these people! They garland even the sacrificial animal and consider it to be a ‘kaar-e-sawaab’ to get it killed and eaten. It is this very cult which prepares suicide boys like sacrificial animals. May God save us from these blasphemers of humanity. Should they not be tried for crime against humanity in the International Court when our CJ who is very active otherwise is silent on this issue.

    Becuse, this is ‘Islamic Republic’ ruled by ‘ullema-e-qassaab’ instead of ‘Adam Karaam’ created by God. It is veritably being a crime against humanity, I wonder, why not International Court of Justice aught to take suo motu action in such cases in which the victim, due to fear and local law enforcing authorities and judiciary, due obviously for some anti-human and anti-justice proclivities of their’s, fail to take any action.
