Of course, the fake civil society (FCS) will never write against their heroes, the Islamofascist judges, who are granting bail to terrorists and their abettors nor against the GHQ’s Jihad Enterprise which is single major source of the jihadi and sectarian terrorism in Pakistan. In the following news report, Amir Mir reveals how the Punjab Police (under the able leadership of Rana Sanaullah of the Sipah-e-Sahaba alliance fame) and the toothless Joint Investigation Team (constrained by the ISI and MI) are unable to arrest or interrogate the instigators of maloon Mumtaz Qadri who brainwashed him to kill Governor Punjab Salmaan Taseer. These are the topics on which Declan Walshes, Mosharraf Zaidis, Cyril Almeidas and Tammy Haqs ‘of’ Pakistan will never write, and we know why.
Agencies probing Taseer murder in a fix

LAHORE: Police as well as the Joint Investigation Team set up by the federal government to investigate January 4 assassination of governor Salman Taseer are in a sticky situation how to quiz the two clerics who had allegedly instigated the self-confessed assassin to commit the murder.
The Rawalpindi trial court has already granted them pre-arrest bails besides rejecting the investigators’ plea for their custody. Mumtaz Qadri had admitted in his confessional statement that he was actually provoked for the murder by the fiery speeches of two Rawalpindi-based clerics Mufti Hanif Qureshi Qadri and Imtiaz Hussain Shah.
According to Qadri’s confessional statement, Mufti Hanif Qureshi, the ameer of a Rawalpindi-based Barelvi religious outfit, Shabab-e-Islami Pakistan and Imtiaz Hussain Shah, the imam of a Rawalpindi-based Amna Masjid, had described Salmaan Taseer a “Yazeedi governor” in their December 31, 2010 speeches at a public meeting in Rawalpindi organised by the Shabab-e-Islami .
The clerics were trying to convince the listeners, while citing certain verses of the Holy Quraan that Taseer was worth killing (Wajibul Qatal) for having committed blasphemy by labeling the blasphemy law a black law. During their speeches, the clerics narrated an event of blasphemy committed by a woman during the rule of Hazrat Abu Bakar Siddiq, the first Caliph of Islam, saying, “The governor of the area where the woman lived awarded punishment to her over the act of blasphemy. As she approached the Caliph, seeking mercy, the latter decided against her and ordered that her teeth to be broken and fingers and tongue be cut for having committed blasphemy”.
As the Rawalpindi-based investigators were flexing their muscles to detain the two clerics for interrogation, Hanif Qureshi and Imtiaz Shah launched a preemptive offensive to counter any move against them.
While resorting to street agitation, the two clerics staged a demonstration in Rawalpindi on January 7, to ‘pay homage’ to the assassin of Taseer. The rally culminated at the Muslim Town residence of Malik Mumtaz Qadri. The participants of the rally were chanting slogans and carrying banners and placards, inscribing pro-Qadri slogans and describing him a “Ghazi”.
Condemning the government for Qadri’s arrest, Hanif Qureshi, who also leads Friday prayers at the Jamia Rizvia Zial Uloom in Rawalpindi, praised the killer for having killed a ‘blasphemer’. He further said: “Ghazi Malik Mumtaz Qadri did this for the love of our beloved Prophet Mohammad (Peace Be upon Him).
The man who called the Blasphemy Law a black law was bound to meet this end and he should not be called a martyr but a blasphemer. And Mumtaz Qadri should not be called a killer but a “Ghazi” (one who leaves the battle victorious).” Keeping in view the street power shown by Hanif Qureshi and Mumtaz Shah, the investigating agencies became defensive and decided to seek court orders for the arrest of the two clerics instead of detaining them on their own. The investigators were of the view that the arrest of the two fanatic mullahs without seeking court orders could trigger nationwide protests by their followers.
However, on January 17, 2011, an Anti Terrorism Court (ATC) in Rawalpindi refused to issue warrants for the arrest of the two clerics for the purpose of interrogation about their speeches during which they had reportedly justified killing of any blasphemer. Having heard arguments from both the sides, ATC Judge Malik Akram Awan, refused to issue the warrants on grounds of incomplete evidence. Two days later, on January 20, the ATC judge granted pre-arrest bails to Hanif Qureshi and Imtiaz Shah against surety bonds worth Rs200, 000 each. The counsel for the clerics argued before the ATC judge that his clients were not at all involved in motivating Qadri and the FIR also did not mention their names.
Under these circumstances, the Rawalpindi police as well as the Joint Investigation Team are simply unable to question the suspects who have refused to cooperate in investigations of the case. The authorities will have to wait for the expiry of their pre-arrest bails before proceedings against them any further. Source: The News
