ISLAMABAD (Agencies) - While endorsing the military operation in Malakand Division, Jamiat Ulema-e-Pakistan Convention Sunday urged the government to keep on fighting against terrorists till their obliteration from the area and establishment of peace there. The convention, presided over by Quaid of Jamiat Ulema-e-Pakistan Shahbzada Fazl Karim was held at Convention Centre. The ulema expressed solidarity with Pakistan Army and the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) of the troubled zone. They also issued a Fatwa (edict) against the suicide attacks saying such attacks are forbidden in Islam and the ongoing military operation in Swat is a war for the survival of the country. They said people involved in murders and desecrations of the holy places have noting to do with Islam. They were of the view that those who were cutting the throats of people by raising the slogan of Allah-o-Akbar had no relevance with Islam. What type of Sharia they wanted to enforce by bombing schools and mosques? they questioned. The convention was attended by more than 2,000 Ulema including Mufti Muneeb-ur-Rehman, Mazhar Saeed Kazmi, Munawar Ali Jamati, Fiaz-ul-Hassan Qadri, Afzal Qadri, Hameed Jan Saifi, Dr Sarfraz Naeemi, Syed Abdul Qadir Jailani, Tariq Mehboob, Ameen-ul-Hasnat and other Mashaekh. Fazal Karim terming the suicide attacks as un-Islamic said the attackers challenging the writ of the country have defamed the country and the religion as well. The ulema said that the terrorists wanted to de-stabilise the country. They also resolved that nefarious designs of the anti-state elements would be foiled. Commenting on the operation, Sahibzada Fazal Karim said all Ahl-e-Sunna organisations from across the country fully supported the military operation in Swat and Malakand. If this operation does not succeed, it will cause tremendous damage to the country, he warned. Religion is not fiefdom of any one, he remarked. Pakistans agenda is our agenda and the people attacking the mosques or involved in suicidal attempts must be taken to task, Shahbzada Fazl Karim said while condemning the relgio-political forces for opposing the operation. The door for reconciliation has already been closed because Sufi Muhammad and his aides have sabotaged the peace accord initiated by the government, he added. Fazl Karim also lamented that Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC) has made no efforts to extend help and express solidarity with the IDPs. We have always stood by the Islamic countries in the need of hour, but regrettably they did not bother to sympathise with 1.3 million IDPs, he remarked. Fazl Karim also supported the government stance for taking the Madaris under government educational system. Only those Madaris should be taken under governments supervision that have been involved in some illegal practices, he said. He said the Madaris run by the JUP are already providing modern education in addition to the Islamic teaching. Mufti Munib-ur-Rehman said that attacks against the army were the rebellious acts. He demanded of the government to hold accountable all those who had carried out such attacks, raised arms and had been involved in human rights violations. What the establishment sowed the seed 30 years earlier are now reaping the crops in the form of suicide attacks and terrorism, he said. Haji Hanif Tayyab asked Sufi Muhammad to surrender immediately adding all the armed groups should lay down their arms. Later, Fazl Karim also announced that next convention would be held at Peshawar.
