Renowned scholar Dr Tahirul Qadri has come under serious criticism after his photo shaking hands with notorious ringleader of banned Deobandi takfiri terrorist outfit M Ahmed Ludhianvi, has gone viral on social media.
Qadri was praised for his scholarly work against Deobandi-Wahhabi takfirism and their terrorism. He has authored a book against them. He also raised voice against these banned terrorist outfits.
But, shaking hands with Ludhianvi of banned takfiri Deobandi outfit has disappointed his supporters who expressed their dislike and dismay over his meeting with Ludhianvi.
One of Qadri’s close-aides, however, clarified that Qadri had not given any appointment to Ludhianvi who was an “uninvited” guest at Qadri’s Jhang residence. He said that since Jhang-based electoral contestants were keen to meet Qadri to seek his support, Ludhianvi himself came to meet Qadri without any appointment. He said that Qadri’s supporters don’t back the takfiris and their ideology.
