LAHORE – Terming blasphemous movie a part of crusade imposed on Muslims, participants of Nizam-e-Sharia Convention have demanded of the United Nations to promulgate a law to give death sentence to those committing the heinous crime.

They urged rulers of Muslim countries to disassociate from the UN and make a separate bloc if the world body failed to adopt measures to stop blasphemy in future. They also urged the rulers to sever ties with the US, expel its diplomats and down drones to pacify the angry citizens.

JUI-S Punjab organised the convention participated by leadership of component parties of Defence of Pakistan Council (DPC) on Sunday. Mian Ajmal Qadri presided over the convention.

Addressing the participants, JUI-S chief and DPC Chairman Maulana Sami-ul-Haq demanded immediate arrest and hanging of maker of anti-Islam movie for disturbing global peace. He urged the world body to do legislation to put to an end the incidents of blasphemy in western countries. He also demanded stoppage of drone attacks.

Sami said it was a pity that the rulers in Muslim countries were turning a blind eye to tragic incidents of blasphemy. He urged the masses to unite and convey a strong message to the world community. He hoped that the globe would soon witness Islamic revolution that would end injustice and discriminatory treatment to Muslims. He said the US was facing defeat and there was need to put a last nail in its coffin through unity.

Jamaat-ud-Dawa Ameer Hafiz Muhammad Saeed said the rulers of Muslim countries had failed to protect respect of Islam, Holy Quran and Holy Prophet (PBUH). He said the rulers were acting as the US stooges and there was a need for unity among the masses to send a clear message that they would never tolerate blasphemy.

He said no one would be safe in the world if the miscreants continued to commit blasphemy. He said the Muslims were ready to sacrifice everything for protecting the honour of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) and the world community should understand that.

He said the enemies had resorted to blasphemy because of the fear of spreading of Islam in the West. He suggested rulers of Muslim countries to dissociate from the UN and make a separate body of 60 states to ensure that no one could commit such heinous crimes.

Maulana Abdul Rauf, Mufti Habeeb-ur-Rehman, Abdul Samad Darkhwasti, Qari Yaqoob Sheikh, Azam Hussain, Manzoor Ahmed, Asim Makhdoom and others also addressed the convention.  Through different resolutions, the participants condemned raise in POL prices, price-hike, loadshedding and corruption; and demanded of the rulers to adopt measures for providing relief to the masses.
