Interior Minister Extends Deadline to End Protest in Islamabad

Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal, before appearing in Islamabad High Court (IHC), announced an extension of two days for the protesters to end their sit-in.

Meanwhile, the lives of residents of Islamabad and Rawalpindi are paralyzed because the main interchange used by the residents of twin cities is closed due to the religious sit-in. The remaining highways have been blocked by the local authorities as a precautionary measure, essentially shutting down all major travel routes in the city.

The IHC had given orders to vacate the sit-in premises, but the protesters didn’t vacate the area. Interior Minister said that they didn’t want any mishap to take place like the incident of Model Town and the Lal Masjid incident in 2007.

Ahsan Iqbal said ‘The impression that we compromised on Khatam-e-Nabbuwat is not correct. I am hopeful that we will resolve the issue in 24-48 hours.”

The interior minister admitted his failure in not ending the sit-in which has paralyzed the lives of residents of Islamabad and Rawalpindi.

After hearing the request for extension of the deadline to end the protest, Justice Siddiqui postponed the hearing until Thursday. The court also issued show-cause notices for contempt of court to the interior secretary, chief commissioner and Islamabad inspector general.

The officials who have been served contempt of court notices were supposed to end the sit-in under clear-cut instructions from the court. These officials were supposed to appear before the court but they failed to do so. The judge said that he is issuing a “contempt of court” order stating that this is a failure of the local administration.

The Deputy Attorney General said that the political leadership is involved in peaceful negotiations with the protesters.

‘Some aspects of the ongoing situation cannot be revealed in the open court’ said the law official.

The Islamabad High Court on Thursday asked the protesters to call off their sit-in after hearing a petition filed by Maulana Allah Wasaya against the changes made in the clause of Khatam e Nabuuwat clause, which was later reverted of Electoral Reforms Bill 2017.

      Those are not ULLMA, they are fasadi’s exploiting name of Islam to gain their own benefits in coming elections.
      We Pakistani’s can do whatever we like if we use Islam’s title. Just look how many are tortured daily due to their actions.

    Its voice of each Pakistani Muslim either they are From Braveli Muslak or Deobandi Maslak. May Allah gives government hidayat. Its government habit that they don’t realize their mistakes not accepts their mistakes. even we accept that this is mistake but being a minister it is sole responsibility of government. because no one can change the word mistakenly. Its not a typo mistake. its intentionally mistake. I think he should resign from his seat as he is not capable and honest man.

      Terey jesey molvion ko koi nahin samjha sakta. Molvi ka ilaj sirf danda hai, magar hamari govt bhi doosri taraf khassi hai, molvion se darti hai.

  • Muhammad Adeel

    Khassi govt hai. Molvion ke agey bheegi billi bani hai. Log becharey pareshan hain aur yahan molvi aur govt apney mafaad ke liye logon ko tang kar rahey hain.

    Mazrat Kay Sath..

    Aap Ko Khud To Kuch Karna Nahi Siwaye Falto Kay Tabsaray Kay. Jo Ulama E Karaam Khatam E Nabowat صَلَّى اللّه تَعَالىٰ عَلَيْهِ وَالِه وَسَلَّم Kay Silsilay Main Kaam Kar Rahe Hain . Unko Apna Kaam Karne Dain. Ye Wohi Ulama E Karaam Hain , Jab Khatam E Nabowat صَلَّى اللّه تَعَالىٰ عَلَيْهِ وَالِه وَسَلَّم Ki Shik Main Tarmeem Ki Gai , Thi To Sab Say Ziyada Ehtajaj In Sab Nay Hi Kia Tha. Warna Aap Jaisi Aawaam To Neend Ki Aghossh Main So Rahi Thi. Zara Aik Jumla Khatam E Nabowat صَلَّى اللّه تَعَالىٰ عَلَيْهِ وَالِه وَسَلَّم Kay Difa Par Aap Kay Moun Say Nikalta To Acha Lagta. Sirf Ulma Par Tanqeed. Ye To Sarasar Ilmi Yateemi Hai Mazrat Kay Saath

        Jahil to tum jesey log hain jin ki waja se Islam sahi khatrey men hain. Islam ke liye sab se bara khatra yahi naam nihad ulema hain. Inhi kaminon ne muslims ko firqon men banta, qatal ke fatwey jharey aur muslims ki soch pe pabandi lagai. Lanat hai tum jesey supporters pe jo aisey molvion ki chamcha geeri kar rahey hain jinhon ne apney siyasi maqasid ki khatir aam logon ko tang kia hua hai. Haqooq ul ibad ka pata nahin air chaley hain namoos e rusalat ki baat karney. Uper se wo khadim rizvi gandi galian de raha hai aur log subhanallah keh rahey hain. Lanat hai aisey logon pe. In logon ka ilaj sirf danda hai, magar hamari hakoomat hi khassi hai.

          Gustakhi Maaf..

          Aap Ki Ilmi Yateemi Ka Andaza Is Baat Say Lagaya Ja Sakta Hai Kay..Aap Ulama Ko Gali Dey Rahe Hain, Hala Kay Wo Ambiya E Karam علیہ السلام Kay Waris Hotey Hain (Hadees E Pak صَلَّى اللّه تَعَالىٰ عَلَيْهِ وَالِه وَسَلَّم), Phir To Aap Jaisay Liberal Type Kay Logon Ko Hazrat E Abu Bakr Siddiqui رضی اللّه عنہ Par Bhi Tanqqeed Karni Chahiye Kyun Kay Sab Say Phele Khatam E Nabowat صَلَّى اللّه تَعَالىٰ عَلَيْهِ وَالِه وَسَلَّم Par Phera Unhonay Dia Tha..Shayed Aap Jang E Yamama Bhol Gae Hain.. Mujhe To Aap Jaisay Dunyavi Parhe Likhon Par Hairat Hoti Hai. Jo Khatam E Nabowat صَلَّى اللّه تَعَالىٰ عَلَيْهِ وَالِه وَسَلَّم Par Aik Jumla Bhi Nahi Bol Sakte Hain Lekin Jo Ye Kaam Kar Rahe Hain Un Ki Tanqeed Main Lagay Rahte Hain..

          Aur Rahi Baat Galiyoon Ki To Quran E Pak Ka Ye Qaida Hai Kay Woh Khabeeson Ko Khabees Hi Kehta Hai.. Bure Ko Bura Kehna Hi Emaan Hai, Kafir Ko Kafir Hi Kaha Jayega..

          Aap Sirf Ye Sochte Kay Jin Logon Nay Khatam E Nabowat صَلَّى اللّه تَعَالىٰ عَلَيْهِ وَالِه وَسَلَّم Ki Shiq Main Tabdeeli Karne Ki Napak Koshish Ki Un Khabeeson Ko Saza Honi Chaye, Chahe Duynya Idher Say Udher Hojaye..
          Magar Aap Ko Tanqeed Karni Hai.. Aap Jaise Logon Ka To Ye Haal Hay Kalmay Shareef Main Durr Ata Hay Ya Darr , Ye Tak Nahi Pata, Aur Tanqeed Waqt Kay Jaleel Ul Qadr Ulama E Karaam Par..Afsos Sad Afsoos, Apna Qibla Durst Karen Janab.”

            O pai tu rehney de. Tum molvion ka masla hi yahi hai ke Tumhain Islam ka aur haqooq ul ibad ka sahi se pata hi nahin. Tum molvion ne jo Islam ki shakal pesh ki hai, us ka asal Islam se koi taluk nahin. Logon ko tang karney ka kia jawaz hai, Nabi SAW ne kia kabhi is ka hukam diya tha jo harkaten tum molvi kartey ho? Haqeeqat ye hai ke tum molvi log badtareen makhlooq ho jo insaniat aur ilm ki dushman hai.
            Logon ko daira islam se kharij karna, kuffar ke fatwey lagana.
            Khadim rizvi ki batein sun ke lagta hai ke aj ke dour ka abu jehel hai aur is ke follower fassadi. Jo aam logon ki zindagi mushkil bana den wo fasadion se ziada aur kuch nahin.

    I wonder why people are against these processions…. Khud to jana nhe ya islam kalie kch krna nhe dosron ko kyun mana krte hn…. Government has restored the clause but the question is why did they try to ammend it in the first place…. Its a conspiracy and these people are among the bravest lot to stand against it…. I salute them… Their cause is very just.. For the people who can’t support them atleast don’t criticize them too, respect their cause… Allah apne raah kalie hr ik ko nhe select krta… You might be more learned than them but quite sorrowfully you may not love ur Prophet same as they do… Sirf baaton se kch nhe hta wo ap aur main yahan beth k kr rhe hn

    جو لوگ شریعت نافذ کرنے خواب دیکھتے ہیں وہ پہلے اس کا آغاز خود پر کر کے دیکھ لیں.
    مجھے یقین ہے اکیسویں صدی میں کوئی بھی نارمل انسان خود کو ساتویں صدی میں نہیں لے جا سکتا ہے.
    جو ایسا کرنے کی کوشش کرے گا اس کا ٹھکانہ سیدھا پاگل خانہ ہوگا.
    مذہب اچھے بھلے نارمل انسان کو بھی ذہنی طور پر مفلوج کر دیتا ہے.
    آج یہ بات روز روشن کی طرح ایک حقیقت بن چکی ہے کہ انسان ایک کامیاب اور خوشحال زندگی قدیم زمانے کے جاہل انسانوں کی جہالت اور توہمات والے اندھے عقیدوں کے زیر اثر نہیں بلکہ اپنی عقل اور سائنس کی رہنمائی میں ہی گزار کر ممکن بنا سکتا ہے.
    تمام ترقی یافتہ اور خوشحال ممالک اس کی زندہ مثال ہے
