Hasan Muawiya, brother of Tahir Ashrafi Deobandi, behind witch-hunting of Ahmadis in Lahore – by Pejamistri


This guy, Hasan Muawiya, is the brother of Pakistani (fake) elitist liberals’ favorite Deobandi cleric Tahir Ashrafi. He registered a case against 72 year old Ahmedi Muslim who was not allowed even to have muslim like names.

On social media, Tahir Ashrafi Deobandi, openly abuses and incites hatred and violence against Ahmadis. However, he is promoted as a progressive cleric by Najam Sethi, Raza Rumi and other commercial liberals.

British doctor in Pakistan arrested for reading from a Koran
Masood Ahmad is a member of the Ahmadi sect, subject to widespread intimidation and banned from describing themselves as Muslims

— by Rob Crilly

A British doctor is languishing in a Pakistani prison accused of “posing as a Muslim” after being videoed reading aloud from the Koran.
Masood Ahmad, 72, is a member of the minority Ahmadi sect, who are declared non-Muslims under the terms of the country’s constitution and subject to widespread discrimination, violence and abuse.
They can face up to three years in prison if convicted of posing as a Muslim, a symptom of Pakistan’s intolerance towards religious minorities.
Dr Ahmad was arrested in the eastern city of Lahore last month after two men secretly filmed him reading a translation of a verse from the Koran.
They had posed as patients at a clinic run by Dr Ahmad and after receiving medications stayed to ask religious questions.
His family said he had returned to Pakistan in 1982 to open a pharmacy after working in London to pay his children’s school fees.
Now they fear the country’s strict blasphemy laws are being used to persecute the widower and strip him of his pharmacy.
“I feel so angry because I can’t do anything from here,” one of his seven children, Abbas Ahmad, a 39-year-old cab driver in Glasgow told Reuters.
“It’s awful to know that people were plotting against someone you love.”
The case has already aroused strong feelings and judges are under intense pressure to convict anyone accused of blasphemy Dr Ahmad was arrested when a mob, including local clerics, gathered outside a police station demanding that the doctor face charges.
Bail hearings have attracted mullahs chanting anti-Ahmadi slogans and the ageing doctor remains in prison.
Ahmadi groups say 21 were murdered for the faith in 2012. At the same time, some 20 blasphemy cases were registered against Ahmadis for using Muslim greetings or texts.
Persecution centres on the fact the sect considers its founder Mirza Ghulam Ahmad to be a prophet, contravening the generally accepted view that Mohammed was the last prophet. As a result Pakistan’s half a million Ahmadis are considered heretics.
Religious hardliners claim there is a place in heaven waiting for anyone who murders a member of the sect.
And in 2010, almost 90 people died when two Ahmadi mosques were attacked by the Pakistan Taliban during Friday prayers. The attack on Ahmadis was proudly claimed by the Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, a Deobandi militant group which is also responsible for murder of Shias and Sunni Barelvis.

According to the laws of Pakistan it is a criminal act for an Ahmadī to read the Holy Qur’ān or act in a manner that may be perceived as the Ahmadī is ‘posing as a Muslim.’

In several past incidents of instigating people against Ahmadis and framing or filing of blasphemy charges, one Hasan Muavia, a Deobandi member of the Khatam-e-Nabuwat group who is a close relative of Maulana Tahir Ashrafi, chairman of Pakistan’s Clerics Council, has been at the forefront.

ڈاکٹر مسعود کے خلاف دی گئی درخواست ایک مقامی مولوی کی جانب سے دی گئی ہے جنہوں نے بات کرنے سےانکار کر دیا مگر اس درخواست پر دیے گئے موبائل نمبر پرجب کال کی گئی تو فون محمد حسن معاویہ نے اٹھایا جن کا نام لاہور میں احمدیوں کے خلاف دی گئی کئی اور درخواستوں میں بھی نظر آتا ہے۔

محمد حسن معاویہ پاکستان علما کونسل کے سربراہ حافظ طاہر اشرفی کے بھائی ہیں اور ختمِ نبوت لائرز فورم سے منسلک ہیں۔

محمد حسن معاویہ کا کہنا ہے کہ ایسا کرنا ان کا قانونی اور آئینی حق ہے۔ انہوں نے کہا کہ :’1984 میں قانون بننے کے بعد یہ مطلب نہیں کہ اسے نظر انداز کر دیا جائے بلکہ اسے نافذ کیا جانا چاہیے۔‘

حسن معاویہ کا کہنا ہے کہ ’احمدیوں کو اپنے مسلک کا نام اور اپنا نام مسلمانوں سے علیحدہ رکھنا چاہیے ورنہ یہ ملکی قانون کی خلاف ورزی ہے اور ہمیں ملکی قانون اجازت دیتا ہے کہ ہم اپنا کام جاری رکھیں۔‘

شاید اسی لیے ڈاکٹر مسعود جنہیں سخت پہرے میں رکھا گیا ہے کہتے ہیں کہ انہیں ‘خطرہ جیل کے اندر نہیں بلکہ باہر ہے۔‘

جماعت احمدیہ کے مطابق اس سال کے دوران بیس سے زیادہ کیس احمدیوں کے خلاف درج کیے گئے جبکہ دوسرے واقعات اور ہلاکتیں علیحدہ ہیں۔

ان میں سے کئی افراد اب بھی زیر حراست ہیں جن میں سے بعض کی ضمانت سپریم کورٹ تک سے مسترد کی جا چکی ہے۔
ڈاکٹر مسعود فیصلے کے منتظر ہیں مگر انہیں نظام سے انصاف کی توقع شاید کم ہے۔ ‘ایک زمانے میں اقلتیوں کے ساتھ زیادتیوں کا پڑھا کرتا تھا اور آج میں انہیں خبروں کا موضوع ہوں۔‘
