When I was in Saudi Arabia for Haj this year I went to Madina to say namaz at Masjid Nabwi. Pakistan’s Religion Minister Hamid Mehmood Kazimi was also there for Haj but he kept sitting in Pakistan House. People asked him why he was not saying his prayers at Masjid Nabwi where people who prayed got sawab (blessing) equal to 50 thousand namaz offerings. To this the Minister said: my namaz cannot be offered behind the Prophet PBUH.

This is your Minister for Religious Affairs. He is a mushrik (believer in someone in addition to Allah) and when in Makka and Madina he does not say his namaz inside the House of Allah. In this grand congregation today I demand that this mushrik be driven from his ministry. Those who are in agreement with me raise your hand.

This mushrik minister gave 150 Qadianis quota for Haj through a travel agent in Peshawar. No Mushrik can enter Makka and Madina but this mushrik is the friend of the Kuffaar (non-believers). He had made a compact in London that we will give you licence and that you will be able to go to Haj. This mushrik minister gave quota to 150 Qadianis and we within the organisations of Khatm-e-Nabuwwat protested most emphatically. We have always blocked the way of these people and will go on doing so and will confront the dissenters from Khatm-e-Nabuwwat (finality of the Prophet PBUH).

Now I will speak about another mushrik. The First mushrik is from Rahimyar Khan who got elected on the PPP ticket. The Second mushrik is from Faisalabad. The son of Sardar Singh named Sahibzada Fazl Karim (MNA) whose father’s background is like this: When Zafrullah Khan Qadiani was foreign minister and came to Lyallpur (Faisalabad) the first person to greet him was Sardar Singh. This Fazl Karim is the son of that cursed person. This man has destroyed our home on the occasion of the Birthday of the Prophet and burnt the books there pertaining to hadith and exegesis of Quran. Then he led an attack on Jamia Qasimiya and looted the homes of the teachers. And worst of all, his trouble-makers approached the grave of my father and dug it up!

O followers of Deobandi Islam! Hazrat Maulana Tayyab Panjpiri had defeated the shameless Sansis and today the same shameless people have come and destroyed my father’s grave. These Sansis (Barelvis) are formed into a group and wear white turbans, their leader damaged my father’s grave. They took revenge for the defeat our followers had inflicted on them. These mushrik people then got on top of the minaret and unfurled their flag saying the heir of Ziaul Qasimi hade been arrested and his home and his sons had been burnt in fire and his madrassa had been taken over. Let us all celebrate, the Mushriks said.

My dear audience (including those from Attock), I have narrated what happened in Faisalabad, and how thirty other friends of mine were arrested. But I am grateful to Muhammad Ahmad Ludihanvi (leader of Sipah Sahaba) that he came to Faisalabad the same day swearing that he will not leave till he had avenged what had been done to Ziaul Qasimi’s house and his family. Hafiz Tahir Mehmood Ashrafi and Ahmad Ludihanvi held a meeting in Darul Quran and all the madrassas cooperated with them. The next day a procession of 15 thousand from the mosque to Kutcheri Bazar came out wearing shrouds and saying give us the order and we will put an end to these mushriks. But our leaders said don’t be impatient we will do what our Prophet PBUH has asked us to do.

The next day, an ultimatum was delivered to the government and a convention was held in which the head of Wifaqul Madaris presented himself and later came to see me in the prison before addressing a press conference. Later Maulana Fazlur Rehman and Maulana Samiur Rehman and the leadership of Majlis-e-Ahrar came to the city. The members of Alami Khatm-e-Nabuwwat and Hafiz Siddiq Sahib came to see me too. I am grateful to all these great ulema and recall that when my father had come out in his struggles he was accompanied by the great Maulana Muhammad Ali Jalundhari.
