Renowned Muslim cleric Maulana Abdul Aziz, Khateeb of Lal Masjad Islamabad, has declared that the US and western powers were the biggest terrorists in the world and added that peace could not be maintained through oppression, injustice and cruelty.

Addressing a gathering in Jamia Masjid Dhingranwali held in connection with martyrdom anniversary of Hazarat Usman Ghani, he mentioned the disintegration of East Pakistan due to oppression, injustices and follies of rulers and conspiracy of western countries. He strongly criticised the last government which had remained failed during the past five years but could not trace the murderer of Benazir Bhutto.

“Pervez Musharraf remained crony of those who were responsible for the killing of thousands of innocent Muslims. PM Nawaz Sharif met with US Secretary of State John Kerry like his obedient and loyal servant,” he said.

He noted, “We have faced martyrdom of innocent sons, sisters and brothers during a bid to stop obscenity, vulgarity and other un-Islamic activities in Islamabad. Prostitution, dacoities, extortion and kidnapping of girls, rape etc are a routine in the country but the government has miserably failed to check lawlessness.”

“Interest (Riba) is ruining the economy and it is against the basic principles of Islam. Almighty Allah has categorically forbidden Riba,” he said. He also demanded that death anniversary of Hazrat Abu Bakar Siddiq (R.A), Hazrat Umar Farooq (R.A), Hazrat Usman Ghani (R.A) and Hazrat Ali (R.A) should be observed annually at national level.
