Ansar Abbasi, Jang Group’s erstwhile investigative journalist and known supporter of Khilafat, the Pakistan Army’s involvement in politics and considered a supporter of Hizb-ut-Tahrir, has written in support of Mumtaz Hussain Deobandi aka Qadri and his future lawyer, Khwaja Sharif, by terming “Mumtaz Qadri ko saza, Adalat nay riasat kee nakami nazarandaz kardi” or “Mumtaz Qadri’s conviction: Court ignores failure of government in the case”.
Enjoying regular space on Jang’s front page, irrespective of something being worth publishing or not, Ansar Abbasi has tried his level best to complicate the case by giving the following logic that What Salmaan Taseer did was blasphemy and that it was inability of the state to take him to task that forced Mumtaz Qadri to kill Salmaan Taseer. What he means is that the State is responsible for the killing of Salmaan Taseer.
Whether the state is responsible in his killing or not, but one thing is for sure, that people like Ansar Abbasi, his gang members like Ahmed Noorani; Meher Bukhari, Khwaja Sharif, Rana Sanaullah etc were the people who incited hatred against Salmaan Taseer which led a fanatic like Mumtaz Qadri to kill him.
This Ansar Abbasi is the same person who wrote stories like “Get CJ Iftikhar operation on the cards” and “Plot to kill Justice Sharif Unearthed”, and tried his best to implicate Salmaan Taseer in it.
Unfortunately, people like him will never learn. They are hate mongers and incite hatred against people. He has still not written an investigative report on Shahbaz Taseer’s kidnapping. Off course, why would he write such a report. His world ended with Raymond Davis!
