|Fazl advised bed rest|
|[DAWN] (JUI-F) chief was on Thursday admitted at the Pakistain Institute of Medical Sciences (Pims) for several hours for the treatment of a stomach problem.|
The JUI chief was kept under observation and after a number of tests discharged in the evening with an advice to have complete bed rest and avoid spicy and oily diet.
Maulana Rehman, who has been suffering from diabetes for over 10 years, was seen by gastroenterologists Dr Qurratul Ain Haider and Dr Waseem Khawaja.
Dr Khawaja later told Dawn that spicy and oily diet was the major cause of the stomach problem.
"As the diet was not healthy, it caused swelling in the stomach. Injections were given to decrease the swelling," he said.
|Ex-UK envoy grenade attack case full verdict released|
|[Dhaka Tribune] The High Court has released the full text of its judgment that upheld a lower court’s verdict against five Harkat-ul Jihad al-Islami Bangladesh (B) for an attempt on former British high commissioner Anwar Choudhury in 2004.|
This furthers the way for the death sentence of HuJi leader Mufti Abdul Hannan, who ed several bombings between 2001 and 2004. He will still able to challenge the verdict at the Appellate Division.
The High Court bench of Justice M Enayetur Rahim and Justice Amir Hossain pronounced the judgment on February 11 this year, over seven years after the trial court verdict that gave death sentence to three and life imprisonment to two s.
The 167-page full text written by Justice Rahim was uploaded on the Supreme Court’s website yesterday.
Three of the banned outfit HuJi - Mufti Hannan, Sharif Shahedul Alam Bipul, and Md Delwar Hossain alias Ripon ‐ were sentenced to death while two others ‐ Hannan’s brother Muhibullah alias Muhibur Rahman alias Ovi and Mufti Mainuddin Khaja alias Abu Jandal ‐ were given life terms by Sylhet Divisional Speedy Trial Tribunal on December 23, 2008.
A Sylhet court is currently hearing another case filed under the Explosives Act.
"After the release of the verdict there is no bar to carry out the death sentences as all the convicts are now in jail, unless they file an appeal with the Appellate Division," Deputy Attorney General Sheikh AKM Moniruzzaman Kabir told s.
The High Court started the hearing on January 6 this year. Hearings were held for nine days. The convicts filed their appeals against the lower court sentence in 2009.
Three people, including a police assistant sub-inspector were killed while former high commissioner Anwar and 70 others in grenade attacks after the Jumma prayers at the shrine of Hazrat Shahjalal in Sylhet on May 21, 2004.
Born in Sunamganj and a naturalised British citizen, Anwar served as the British high commissioner to Bangladesh from 2004 to 2008. He is currently serving as the Ambassador to Peru.
|Only Ulema are patriots, says Fazl|
|[DAWN] Terming Ulema the only patriots in the country, , chief of the -F (JUI-F) has said that Madressah is a fort of Islam and a peaceful place.|
Talking to s at the Jamia Ashrafia here on Tuesday, he said seminaries imparted a lesson of peace, tolerance, love, affection and the religion.
He said were anti-state and bereft of any religion and terrorism should be rooted out of the country.
He accused the secular forces of hatching conspiracies ‘for dollars’ and said only an Islamic system would make the country a better place to live.
Maulana Fazl said s were the first to step forward for protecting the country in times of crises and the seminaries would foil all conspiracies.
|JUI-F chief calls for making Pakistan a true Islamic welfare state|
|[DAWN] (JUI-F) chief has called for making Pakistain a true Islamic welfare state and introducing the Islamic system in the country.|
He was addressing the 77th annual Dastar-e-Fazeelat Conference at the Jamia Mazharul Uloom, Manzilgah, on Tuesday. The conference was presided over by caretaker of Dargah Halejvi Sharif, Abdul Samad Halejvi.
The JUI-F chief said his party opposed moves to promote secularism in the country. He claimed that Pakistain was created in the name of Islam and solution of country’s all problems lied in following the guidelines provided in the Koran and Sunnah. Introduction of secular ideas in the name of moderation and progressive thoughts could not be accepted, he added.
He criticised the rulers and some politicians for what he called promoting secular ideas in the country. He accused the rulers of handing over the affairs of the country in the hands of international NGOs.
The JUI-F chief said international conspiracies were being hatched against the Islamic world and madressahs (religious seminaries). Some politicians and NGOs are trying to portray a bad picture of madressahs and they are forcing the government to take action against them. He claimed that raids had been conducted on thousands of madressahs, but not a single terrorist was found there.
Maulana Fazl held the West, particularly the United States, responsible for bloodshed in Islamic countries and said the had failed in finding solutions of international disputes which was the main cause of unrest in different parts of the world.
|State vs clerics|
|[DAWN] THE religious right in the country is once again in a state of fervent agitation. Ostensibly, this is because theAssembly recently passed a historic women’s rights law. Yet, other provinces have passed similar, arguably more robust, laws in recent times and there has been little outcry. The difference this time may be the straits the religious right has found itself in and its urgent need to put pressure on the federal government -- the PML-N -- to reverse policies that have caused it to lose ground in the public arena. The signs are several. The conference convened by the in Mansoora on Tuesday saw many speakers veer away from the Punjab law and condemn the hanging of Mumtaz Qadri and the clampdown on the activities of the Tableeghi Jamaat. More remarkably, in attendance were avowed anti-democrats like , whose interest in parliamentary democracy is nil. The constellation of ignominy that gathered in Mansoora clearly has wider goals than simply nullification of a pro-women law.|
The recent fulminations of Fazlur Rehman, the JUI-F chief, give an indication of what those wider goals may be. In evoking the spectre of a PNA-style opposition alliance, the maulana appears to be seeking unity of the religious right so as to put concerted pressure on the centre, with the intention of either bringing down the federal government or aggressively increasing the public space for the religious right and its partners. Behind those grand schemes lies a harsh reality: the JUI-F and its political and cohorts face an existential crisis. The National Action Plan made explicit for the first time the need to combat religiously motivated militancy and also called for the regulation of the sprawling network of madressahs across the country. In truth, however, the slow collision between the state and religious right had already begun. The infamous outburst of Munawar Hassan in November 2013, in which the former JI chief condemned Pak soldiers drawing a sharp response from the military, may have set the parameters of conflict and dissent.
What remains to be seen is how firm the PML-N will stand in this ideological conflict between the forces of regression and those on the right side of history. Pakistain must return to the vision of its founding father and become the progressive, modern and thoroughly democratic country that the Quaid wanted it to be. Thus far, the PML-N has surprised with its willingness to dabble in more progressive and forward-thinking politics. Yet, its mettle has not truly been tested. The Punjab Assembly is little more than a rubber stamp for the Sharif family’s pet projects. The hanging of Mumtaz Qadri was cleared by the courts. Now comes the real baptism of fire -- stand firm and stand tall against the religious right and the PML-N will earn itself a place in history. Crumble now and history will be less forgiving.
|Religious parties denounce law protecting women from abuse as 'un-Islamic'|
|[DAWN] An all-parties conference convened by and attended by powerful religious groups asked the government on Tuesday to retract an "un-Islamic" law that gives unprecedented protection to female victims of violence.|
The Women's Protection Act, passed by Assembly last month, gives legal protection to women from domestic, psychological and sexual violence.
It also calls for the creation of a toll-free abuse reporting hot line, women's shelters and district-level panels to investigate reports of abuse and mandates the use of GPS bracelets to keep track of offenders.
Domestic abuse, economic discrimination and acid attacks made Pakistain the world's third most dangerous country in the world for women, a 2011 Thomson Foundation expert poll showed.
But since the law's passage, many conservative s and religious leaders have denounced it as being in conflict with the Holy Koran, and the Constitution.
On Tuesday, representatives of more than 35 religious parties and groups came together for a conference called by the Jamaat-e-Islami and condemned the women's protection law as un-Islamic.
"The controversial law to protect women was promulgated to accomplish the West's agenda to destroy the family system in Pakistain," read the joint declaration issued at the end of the concrescence.
"This act ... is redundant and would add to the miseries of women."
The passage of the new law was welcomed by rights groups but spirits have since dampened as conservative voices have increasingly called for its retraction.
On Monday, JUI-F chief Fazlur Rehman said Prime Minister had promised him at a meeting that he would address the reservations of religious parties.
"Nawaz Sharif heard our reservations against the Punjab Protection of Women Against Violence Act 2016. He promised to amend the law so that it doesn't contravene the teachings of the Holy Koran," Fazl told journalists at his residence.
Earlier this month, the Council of Islamic Ideology, a religious body that advises the government on the compatibility of laws with Islam, declared the Women's Protection Act un-Islamic.
A prominent lawyer has also filed a petition in the top sharia court asking it to strike down the law.
|Punjab ready to amend law: Fazl|
|[DAWN] Jamaat Ulma-e-Islam-F chief has said the government is willing to bring amendments to the Punjab Protection of Women Against Violence Act 2016.|
"Chief Minister had telephoned me and told me that the government is ready to bring amendments to the women protection bill," Fazulr Rehman told s here on Saturday.
He said he had told the chief minister that things had gone beyond just amending the bill, which he added was "un-Islamic" and was passed in a haste.
The religious parties had opposed the bill and demanded the government should withdraw it.
The Maulana said the prime minister’s comment on the performance of the National Accountability Bureau should be taken seriously.
|Not many turn up at protest against Mumtaz Qadri’s hanging|
|[DAWN] Contrary to fears and apprehensions of the local authorities, protest rallies organised by religious parties and groups against the hanging of Mumtaz Qadri fizzled out on Friday.|
To ensure foolproof security, three of the four roads towards the Red Zone in the city were sealed by placing containers and only the Margalla Road was open for traffic.
The main protest in the federal capital was held at Aabpara Chowk which was organised by Namoos-e-Risalat committee, consisting of (JI), Jamaat Ahle Sunnat (Barelvi), JUI-F, Aalmi Majlis Tahafuz Khatam-e-Nabuwat, Ansarul Ummah of former commander and other smaller groups belonging to both the Barelvi and Deobandi sects.
Incidentally, the proscribed group, (formerly ), which has traditionally been a diehard opponent of the Barelvis also participated in the rally.
|Religious parties can derail govt, Fazl tells Sana|
|[DAWN] (Fazl) chief says that although the religious parties are not in a position to form the government, they can definitely derail it.|
"Rana Sanaullah says that the people do not cast their vote for religious parties but I want to make it clear to Sanaullah that though we are not in a position to form the government, we are able to derail the government whenever we want," he said while talking to the media here on Tuesday.
Fazl said the government should introduce legislation under which a person who committed blasphemy against the Holy Prophet be punished automatically and people might not have to take law in their hands. He said a meeting of religious elements would be called soon over the issues of the protection of religious seminaries and Women Protection Act to devise future line of action.
The JUI-F chief said the Women Protection Act passed by the Assembly was against the constitution, law and Islamic teachings.
"We reject all such laws and will continue to play our role to protect the Sharia as such laws usually are introduced to fulfill the foreign agenda," he said.
|Punjab's pro-women law against constitution, Shariah: Fazl|
|[DAWN] Jamaat-e-Ulema Islam (Fazl) chief Fazlur Rehman remained highly critical of Assembly’s recent pro-women enactment and termed it a law which is in conflict with the constitution and certain Shariah laws simultaneously.|
While talking to journalist in Hyderabad on Saturday, the JUI-F chief described it as an NGO-driven legislation, saying "NGOs follow the west for their pecuniary interests".
Fazl maintained that this law seeks to intrude the privacy of every individual and it would torment Pakistain’s strong family structure which is something lacking in the West.
"Husband and wife are considered partners in the West, but it is not the case in Pakistain," he said and explained that the protection offered under this law is already available in the existing laws.
"Islam gives respect to women in a manner that no other law in the world ensures," said the JUI-F chief, adding that "this law makes a man insecure".
Fazl wondered "it is the same PML-N which didn’t sign pro-women legislation in Musharraf era but now it has gone even many steps further to introduce a controversial law".
What kind of distortion is this and what it wants to make of Pakistain? he asked and said "it is an attempt to make Pakistain a colony again".
|Police claim success in Avijit murder case|
|[Dhaka Tribune] Investigators have got some crucial information in connection with the murder of secularist writer Avijit Roy from the two alleged recently in the city.|
Sources said that the duo -- Kamal alias Shahin and Shah Alam alias Salauddin -- had been involved in the gruesome murder that took place on February 26 last year. Police say they are members of banned outfit Ansarullah Bangla Team.
A senior police officer, seeking anonymity, confirmed the matter to the Dhaka Tribune, but refused to elaborate further.
The newly-formed Counter-Terrorism and Transnational Crime (CT) unit and the DB police arrested the two from Badda on Friday. They were placed on six-day remand on Monday.
Former Buet teacher Avijit Roy, also founder of Mukto-Mona blog, was hacked to death by assailants near TSC when he and his wife Rafida Ahmed Bonya were returning from the book fair. Bonna sustained severe injuries in the attack.
Ansarullah has ties with
Bombs recovered from the alleged den of Ansarullah in Mohammadpur are similar to those found in Narayanganj on October 25 last year, said.
They think that either some members of banned Islamist group Harkat-ul Jihad al-Islami (HuJIB) joined Ansarullah or they trained the Ansarullah members. Both the groups want to establish Islamic rule in the country.
DB Bomb Disposal Unit officials told the Dhaka Tribune that they had found the bombs inside the false ceiling of the flat. Similar arrangement was seen in Narayanganj.
DB Assistant Commissioner Rahmattullah Chowdhury said they had found six grenades which were made of local materials. Moreover, they found bomb-making manuals written in Bangla and Arabic.
"We saw similar preparation of grenades from the HuJIB members detained earlier. May be some bomb makers of HuJIB have joined Ansarullah," he added.
At least seven members of HuJIB were arrested by the DB police in Narayanganj last year. They had returned to Bangladesh after getting military training from Pakistain-based group for two years.
|Fazl wants parliament informed about army chief's Kabul visit|
|[DAWN] , the |
Speaking at a at the party's secretariat on Sunday, he said the prime minister should explain whether or not Gen had proceeded to with his permission.
"I am sure that such high-level talks can't take place without the prime minister's consent," the JUI-F chief said when informed that federal ministers had expressed their ignorance in the Senate about the outcome of Gen Raheel's meetings in Kabul.
The army chief held talks with the Afghan leadership and reportedly offered Pakistain's role in ending insurgency in that country.
Maulana Fazl said if Pakistain could play a role in reconciliation, the Afghan government should take advantage of it and come up with a positive response. It was a very positive approach by Pakistain for bringing peace to Afghanistan, he added.
He said tension between Pakistain and India had eased after Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Lahore last month. He said parliament should hold a candid debate on the country's relations with Afghanistan and India.
