Islamabad (Staff Report): Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and his party the PML-N have distanced from the outburst of a ruling party lawmaker Captain (retd) Muhammad Safdar, son-in-law of deposed premier Nawaz Sharif, against the Ahmadiyya community.
“These were Safdar’s personal views and the party does not agree with it,” the prime minister said. “Such kind of provocation should be avoided,” he said, adding that being the parliamentary head he would ask Safdar to explain his position on the issue.
Earlier, Captain (retd) Safdar demanded complete curbs on Ahmadi’s in government, army and private employment.
“Can these people, who attack the finality of Prophet Mohammed, be loyal to a country, which came into existence in the name of Finality of Prophet-hood?,” Safdar asked while addressing the National Assembly on Tuesday.
He demanded complete constraint on admission of Ahmadi’s in armed forces. He blamed the failure of 1971, on Qadayani’s leading high posts during the war.He said, “In 1971, the Corps Commander of Sindh, General Abdullah Ali was a Qadiyani, his brother was a Qadiyani and I’m shocked that even the Air Force Chief was Qadiyani. How can you win a war, when all the high ranks were given to the enemies of Isalam”.
Safdar also demanded to rename the Professor Abdus Salam Center for Physics. He said, “Dr. Adbus Salam is a Non-Muslim, the Constitution of Pakistan declares him Non-Muslim and we don’t want any department to be affiliated with the name of any such person”.
