HYDERABAD: A businessman accused of blasphemy has gone underground and wants the religious leaders to hear his viewpoint.

Haji Nasrullah, who owns a market at Hala Naka area off National Highway and is the chairman of a local shopkeepers association, originally hails from Mohmand Agency.

According to Munir Abbasi, a police officer at the Hatri police station, Nasrullah was booked for blasphemy offence under sections 295-B and C on the complaint of Kachkol Khan.

Blasphemy is punishable by life in prison or death under Pakistani laws. Human rights groups and civil society organisations often call for repealing it on the ground that it is badly misused, particularly against religious minorities for settling personal scores.

Abbasi explains that the trouble began on Sunday night when the city observed a strike against an anti-Islam film.

“Some protesters wanted shops at the Hala Naka area closed in protest against the anti-Islam movie to which Nasrullah objected,” he said.

According to Azam Jehangiri, some shopkeepers including the president of the association Najeeb Ahmed reported the matter to a mufti in a nearby mosque. “Ahmed alleged that Nasrullah used some very objectionable remarks against the Holy Prophet,” said Jehangiri, who is associated with Maulana Fazal Rehman’s Jamiat-i-Islam.

“Mufti Ashfaq asked whether he has witnesses to substantiate his claim. Ahmed accordingly produced those witnesses,” Jehangiri recalled.

Subsequently, Abbasi says, after a brief gathering in the area mosque, scores of outraged religious parties activists and seminary students tried to attack Nasrullah’s house, leading to a clash.

As a result of firing, three persons namely Abdul Baseer and Mohammad Afzal (who were among protesters) and Qamaruzzaman brother of Haji Nasrullah received injuries.

“Nasrullah got an FIR of attempted murder lodged against the protesters,” he said.

Maulana Taj Mohammad Nahyoon, Hyderabad district president JUI (Fazal), is currently spearheading protests against Nasrullah and demanding his arrest.

He had an FIR registered against Nasrullah for alleged blasphemy after addressing a press conference at the local press club on Monday afternoon.

“We want Nasrullah arrested as we have produced our witnesses against Nasrullah and they all have deposed on oath that he did commit blasphemy,” Nahyoon said while talking to Dawn.com.

Meanwhile, Nasrullah has gone into hiding. He has not been arrested nor has he been able to seek pre-arrest bail so far. Although he is not answering his cellphone, he has made an effort to get his point across to the Mufti Ashfaq who was instrumental in getting the FIR registered.

On Wednesday, Nasrullah sent Haji Asmatullah Mehsood, who is associated with ANP and runs his business in Hala Naka area, to Jamia Muftahul Uloom. Mehsood met with Nahyoon and Jehangiri as well as other people.

“The gathering was chaired by me and it was attended by Shaikhul Hadees Mufti Ghulam Mohammad Junejo, Mufti Habibullah, Mufti Fasih, Maulana Saifur Rehman, Maulana Abdul Salam and others in seminary,” said Nahyoon.

He added that the purpose of the meeting was to verify the ‘involvement of personal enmity’.

“This is a sensitive issue. However, all of us are satisfied that an FIR was properly lodged with statement of witnesses,” he said.

“Since the FIR has been lodged after due verification of facts, the issue can’t be resolved at this level. Now we want him arrested,” he said.

Mehsood, on the other hand, confirms having met religious leaders.

“I haven’t met Nasrullah…he is not available but someone from his side approached me so that his viewpoint can be presented to the other side,” he says, adding: “I have got nothing to do with this issue directly.”

Majlis-e-Tahfuz-e-Khatm-e-Nabuwat is also actively participating in protests on the issue and demanding arrest of the accused. They said that they will hold a protest on Friday if he is not arrested.

Majlis-e-Tahfuz-e-Khatm-e-Nabuwat needs to get their bearings right. You cannot and should not make someone to protest with you if they do not want to. Read Surah-Al-Feel and its translation. and also remember the approach prophet Mohammed PBUH took when people were giving him hard times in the earlier days of Islam.

It's best to ignore about this film. I am a Hindu (from India) and I condemn such a film. However, there is no need to arrest someone on blasphemy charges like this. The Messengers and Prophets of God (Peace be upon them) are so great that nothing can undermine their messages for humanity.

The current generation is so uneducated that they cannot rationalize; there is nothing that can bring sanity back to them. We must all focus on educating the next lot in proper schools, where they are taught to think for themselves. India has already done that. Only then will they be able to understand the modern world and quit demonstrating when anyone in this world does something offensive.

Now Nasrullahs well wishers can do so againsts his complainants, and then TIT for TAT to continue.

Am I right that by the current definition of this law and way it being implemented in Pakistan, anyone who stands for his/her own faith is a Blasphemer, by their definition being a non-Muslim is the blasphemy because you are not converting to Islam because you don't believe in it, hence death is the only solution. Believe or die.

"Mullahs are not the defenders of Islam. they never were, they never will be." Well said. These self-proclaimed righteous people do not even understand the religion and what it teaches. They believe that just because they have memorized the Quran, without even understanding a single word of it, gives them a free ride to call anyone non-Muslin and blasphemous.

A non-Muslim woman was used to throw garbage on to the Prophet Mohammed every time he passed by her house. Once this woman did not throw the garbage on the Prophet Mohammed, he found out that she was sick so Prophet Mohammed went to enquire about her health & well-being. Niether Prophet Mohammed nor any of his copmanions, thought that she had been committing "blashemy" by throwing garbage on to Prophet & causing pain to him & should be killed. Prophet Monhammed went through extreme pains to teach us to be tolerant even to the non-Muslims & to those who inflict sufferings on us. What relegion are these Pakistani Muslims following by killing every one for little or no reason ? On the day of Judgement, these Pakistani Muslims & their Mullahs would be held accountable for their self made Islam & for all these killings.

I hope the authorities in this case, and society at large, realize how disproportionate is the weapon in a malicious person's hands - anybody can be accused, and any sort of witnesses can be produced for the 'crime'. Lawlessness is defined as such, so hopefully Pakistan's saner minds wake up fast and do something about this particular law. There's a lot for Pakistan to strive for and achieve, and imploding into a failed state is not one of them. But actually, recent events somehow reassure me that all is not lost, and law-and-order enforcement (the police) can still be professional. Hope that happens - good luck from India!

So ibn Umar (ra) didn't join the civil war and remained neutral, that would mean he was blasphemous? Obviously since this was a protest involving a political party (always with a gain), someone who might want to voice out that the movie is a fraud (the man wasn't even a Jew!) or that patience must be practiced (especially in an angry protest), or that a protest should be pointing towards the government for lack of action...might be in trouble...political extortion anyone?

Would Mohammed (PBUH) have done the same, burn tires, kill innocent people and charge those who prevent people from going on the streets of Pakistan and elsewhere in the with blasphemy? In my opinion he (PBUH) would have asked Allah to forgive them, for they know not what they are doing! In his time, the Arabs used to relieve themselves in the mosques, but he (PBUH) would ask his companions not to punish them, but to teach them what they know not! Muslim clerics have become God-Heads, just like the ones in ancient Greek mythology. They fight for Allah. Does Allah really want these idiots to fight for him? They do not even know the sanctity of Allah and the value of human lives, how could these morons act on behalf of Allah? The problem of us Muslims is that we give too much importance to every garbage there is. Instead of improving our lives and those of our families and societies, we have become only good at riots, so called Jihad and the killings of innocent people. Islam forbid killings of innocent people. It calls the killing of one innocent man, the killing of all humanity! Wake up Mullahs and smell some dark coffee! Islam is not what you preach!

You probably just felt like saying a wrong thing today, didn't you? You are no different than those fundamentalists, just on the other side than them. Saying whatever that comes to your mind just to prove your point even if it is wrong. I do agree that blasphemy is overly strict law that prophet Muhammad (PBUH) himself would not have approved. Prophet Muhammad was a great guy. All those who talked against him eventually became Muslims with exception of few. I pray to Allah that He makes us understand the right Islam and not the Islam promoted by ill-literate Mullahs.

Because this is what we, the Muslims, do best because we never follow what our religion teaches. You see, all these people who are pretending that they are defending their religion are actually the worst offenders of their religion.

Servants of a few lines written by clerics shall always hold the humanity to hostage.

By demonstrating such intolerant vicious behavior they are at best bringing the clash of civilization nearer than ever. Chawla
