LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League (PML) President Chaudhry Shujat Hussain has advised the government to refrain from changing Namoos-e-Risalat laws.
He was talking to a delegation of Jamaat-e-Islami (JI), comprising Central Secretary General Liaquat Baloch, Naib Amir Dr Farid Piracha and Punjab JI Amir Mian Maqsood Ahmed, which called on him at his residence here on Tuesday.
Chaudhry Shujat Hussain said that firstly, the government under cover of the election laws, interfered with the Khatm-e-Nubawwat clause and now under a peculiar foreign and un-Islamic agenda in the garb of human rights, attempts were being made to play a dangerous game of further hurting sentiments of the Muslims. He added that efforts are being made to get Namoos-e-Risalat laws changed through the Senate.
He further said that Khatm-e-Nubawwat and Namoos-e-Risalat were the basic faith of every Muslim without which no person can be a Muslim at all. He added that the government should refrain from this ‘dangerous’ move. He added that the government has no realization about hurting the sentiments of millions of Muslims of the country.
The PML president urged the members of the Senate and the National Assembly not to carry forward foreign and un-Islamic agendas of the rulers.
Chaudhry Shujat went on to say that the sit-in in Islamabad on Khatm-e-Nubawwat was also the result of incompetence and adamancy, and added that the rulers should not act in any manner in future which may push the country into crisis again.
