اے غور و فکر کرنے والو! اور قصاص میں ہی تمہارے لیےُ زندگی ہے، تاکہ تم متقی بن جاوُ.. (القران)

10386838_270069753195738_244286283537329206_nIt is a principle of law and justice that a criminal can neither become an investigator nor can he act as a judge. After committing a blatant crime of murdering 14 persons including women, injuring 90 persons, terrorizing the whole locality and peaceful community of Minhaj ul Quran and ransacking the Masjid / residence of Dr. Tahir ul Qadri through its police and goons, the Punjab Govt is trying to cover up and justify its cruelty. The police inquiry committees include those police officers who actually carried out the offense. One-member Commission of LHC will never be able to find out facts as all the details being brought before the commission will be fabricated and tempered. There are news that police is being used to pressurize the medical authorities of General Hospital to alter the medical reports to suit the requirement of police and the govt. The official FIR lodged by the govt/police indicts 3000 members of Minhaj ul Quran /PAT and none from the police or administration. All this will be an eyewash and drama to cover the crimes

Why Justice is not possible under present setup?

Under these circumstances it is impossible for the victim party to get any sort of remedy or justice. Dr. Tahir ul Qadri had done well to reject the judicial commission formed by the govt. PTI, PML-Q and MQM have also supported the stance of PAT and have demanded an immediate resignation of Shahbaz Sharif as CM of Punjab. IK has demanded that Rana Sanaullah should be arrested and put in jail.

Unless the killers are sitting on the power seat there is no possibility of justice. No inquiry commission can work independently and impartially in the presence of CM / Interior Minister who themselves had ordered police to open fire on the peaceful members of PAT. TuQ has given the statement that an FIR of murders will be lodged that will include names of Shahbaz Sharif, Rana Sanaullah and other ministers/ police officers. But he said that even this FIR cannot be registered till the time SS is in power. He said that PAT wants ‘Qisas’ according to Islamic law for their killed ones, and no other compensation/ reconciliation will be acceptable

How ‘Qisas’ can be Taken?

It is obvious that ‘Qisas’ ( life for a life and organ for an organ) can materialize after revolution. When the present set up will be replaced with a revolutionary council of the people of Pakistan it will set up an independent inquiry commission. In the light of that inquiry report an impartial court will carry out hearing of the case and after satisfying itself with all the available evidences, will sentence the killers to death under the Islamic law. The revolutionary govt will be so authoritative that no powerful group or mafia will be able to influence the investigative process or the witnesses or coerce the victim family for a compromise.

Allah (SWT) has commanded in the Holy Quran that “o you wise and thinking people, there is life in ‘Qisas’ for you, so that you become fearful (of Allah) .” Without enforcing the concept of Qisas there can be no peace in our society.

Lawlessness in the Punjab, A Woman Stoned to Death in Front of Court


By Akhtar Malik :29 May 2014

woman-stoned-to-death-for-honour-outside-lhc-1401229571-2030A 25 years old pregnant woman has been stoned to death by her own family members in Lahore High Court in the presence of police.

This brutal scene is not from tribal area, nor the criminals are TTP terrorists or religious extremists. This tragedy has happened in the heart of Pakistan, Lahore, and in the reign of Shahbaz Shareef, who is portrayed as a hard task master and a Khadim e Aala.

Punjab is a province where Noon league is in the govt over the past many decades. Though law & order is a grave problem everywhere in Pakistan but Punjab is the worst, given the situational dynamics. It is a pity that this aspect has not been given due attention by Noon. This brutal act is not the only event, it is the latest in the series of events that occur so frequently here. Acid throwing, letting the dogs loose on poor victims, kidnapping, murders in the name of honor, and so many other forms of other crimes are a common feature in Punjab. Police has lost its entity as a law enforcing agency and rather safeguards the interests of the powerful. Not a single criminal has been punished in the recent past.

The vicious, rather Satanic cycle in which the poor, helpless and innocent masses have been kept hostage usually takes the following shape:

1. A crime is committed. The victim goes to Police for FIR.
2. The victim is kicked out bu Police and the criminals are honored in the police station.
3. The news is leaked out on media and some TV channel broadcasts the news.
4. Our Khadim e Aala wakes up and takes notice.
5. CM goes to house of victim’s family, shows solidarity, announces some monetary compensation and asks police to arrest the culprits. Senior police officers at the occasion are admonished by CM who keep listening with their heads down. The artificiality of all this drama is clearly visible to a keen eye.
6. The culprits are arrested, given VIP protocol by police and a nominal FIR is registered.
7. The victim family is pressurized by the notable people who have links with govt and with the criminals alike.
8. In most of the cases a compromise between the victim family and the criminals takes place before the case goes to the court. The criminals are set free to commit fresh crimes.
9. If at all the case goes to court the lengthy and expensive legal procedures, insecurity of the witnesses, coupled with constant threats from powerful criminals, sooner or later compel the victim party to surrender the case.

This vicious cycle goes on and on and have no chances of any improvement at least in the present setup.
