Pro-takfiri group leaders of Milli Yakjehti Council began a campaign to bring the outlawed Sipah-e-Sahaba to the fold of MYC.
They tried their best to convince a meeting of Milli Yakjehti Council on Friday that the (banned terrorist group) should be made part of the MYC.
â€œDefence of Pakistan Council is incomplete without Shia parties and Milli Yakjehti Council is incomplete without Sipah-e-Sahaba,â€ said Liaquat Baloch, secretary general of Jamaat-e-Islami. He argued that dispute remains between Shiites and Sipah-e-Sahaba therefore they should be brought here for talks to sort out the tension between them.
Allah Wasaya, a leader of Tehrik-e-Tahaffuz-e-Khatm-e-Nubuwwat endorsed the proposal of Liaquat Baloch. He said he had talked to (notorious takfiri nasbi terrorist Malik Ishaq). Malik Ishaq had assured Allah Wasaya that if Allama Sajid Naqvi guarantees that no words will be said against Sahaba then his group would abandon its takfiri ideology. Allah Wasaya said that he had informed Malik Ishaq that all the MYC members agree on 17-points manifesto of the council. Therefore, his group should abandon its activities.
Hafiz Hussain Ahmed of JUI-F also expressed similar views in support of the proposal of Liaquat Baloch of the JI.
Shia scholar Qazi Niaz Hussain reacted sharply to the proposal and said that it was unjust to equate Shia Muslims with takfiri terrorist group of illiterate people.
â€œAll representative bodies of Deoband school of thought are in the Milli Yakjehti Council therefore there is no need to propose parleys with a takfiri terrorist group,â€ he asserted.
Qazi Niaz Hussain referred to the fatwas of Shia religious authorities that banned blasphemy of sacred people of Sunni Muslims. He said that laws existed in Pakistan against it. If the participants of the meeting have anti-Shia thoughts, then why they sit with Shiites in MYC. The MYC members said they had no complaint with Shiites.
The Councilâ€™s President Qazi Hussain Ahmed said that nothing could be said without consulting Majlis-e-Wahdat-e-Muslimeenâ€™s Allama Raja Nasir Abbas Jafri and Allama Sajid Naqvi of Shia Ulema Council.
The leadership of the SUC and no member of the MWM attended the Friday meeting of MYC.
Shia Muslims across Pakistan have expressed their opposition and dismay over the mindset of some of the MYC leaders. They rejected any sort of condition for Shiites from takfiri nasbi terrorist group.
