LAHORE The component parties of Tahaffuz-e-Namoos-e-Risalat (TNR) have stressed upon the nation, especially the traders community to observe a peaceful complete shutter down on December 31 (Friday) to prove that followers of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) would never allow the rulers and west-sponsored NGOs to carryout the nefarious agenda to push the country towards a civil war like situation. The parties waging a movement to protect Blasphemy laws claimed full support of major traders bodies to observe a complete shutter down on Friday to protest against the west-backed conspiracy to make Pakistan a secular state. Addressing a press conference here at Lahore Press Club, Secretary General Jamaat-e-Islami Liaquat Baloch said the TNRT had constituted various steering committees for holding meetings with different traders leaders and market representatives in various cities and towns to muster support for the strike. JUI-F information secretary Maulana Amjad Khan, JUP Lahore president Malik Bashir Nizami, Mohammad Khan Leghari, JI deputy secretary general Dr Farid Ahmed Paracha, Amirul Azeem and Anwar Niazi were also present. Liaquat Baloch said the successful strike on Friday would prove that Muslims would never compromise on the honor of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) and consider it a blessing to offer every sacrifice for the cause. He said it was regretful that rulers had surrendered before the colonialist conspiracy to secularise the country by amending the Islamic laws, of which Blasphemy laws on top of the list. He warned the secular lobbies in the country and west-funded NGOs against pushing different communities living in the country into a collision course, and stressed that all minorities specially Christians enjoyed complete religious freedom in Pakistan and their lives, properties and places of worship were protected as commanded by Quran and Sunnah. He said Blasphemy laws protect the honor of all Prophets of all religions equally without any discrimination. He said public meeting would also be held in Karachi on Jan 9, 2011.
