Moosavi calls for probe into Shiite killings in letter to Nigerian President

By:Salman Alvi

 

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: The Patron-in-Chief Supreme Shia Ulema Board and Quaid Tehreek Nafaz Fiqh-e-Jafariya Pakistan Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi has demanded from the Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari to order investigations into his incident by forming a tribunal, release AllamaZakzaki and his companions forthwith, give exemplary punishment to those who have committed this crime as giving punishment before committing the crime is contrary to the principles of the Khalifate Rashid, restore the glory of Masjid and ImambargahBaqiatullah by reconstructing it afresh. This demand was made in a letter addressed to the Nigerian President.

Agha Moosavi made it clear that 1437 years ago from this day when someone raised a slogan on the occasion of Makkah Victory that it is Youm Al-Malhamah (the day to cut into pieces), the Rehmatul Lil AlimeenPaighambar-e-Akram (SAAW) said no it is Youm Al-Marhamah (the day of mercy and affection) therefore he told the Makkah people that you are free, and can go. The Khutaba that he (SAAW) delivered on the occasion of HujjatulWidah is the charter of basic rights and is the best manifesto for today’s rulers and politicians. The United Nations Charter for Human Rights actually is actually the reflection of the Islamic Charter in the following in addition to other rights protection of life, protection of honour, protection of belief, freedom of expression, and right to get justice are also included. That is why the Ayah No. 93 of the SuraNisa of the Holy Quran says that punishment of killing any Momin purposely is hell in which he will remain forever, Allah’s wrath and scourge is on him and Allah Has provided the strictest wrath for him. A Hadees-e-Nabavi says that Muslim is the once from whose hand and tongue the other Muslim remains safe that is why to highlight the importance of tolerance in Islam it announced in SuraBaqarah that لا اکراہ فی دین i.e. there is no coercion in religion. The enlightened example of tolerance in Islam was set by Hazrat Omar IbneKhattab whose slave states that Hazrat Omar asked me to become Muslim but I did not accept Islam. He said there is no coercion in religion, therefore, Hazrat Omar at the time of his death set me free and said go away wherever do you want.

Similarly, he said, example of not giving punishment before the crime is committed was set by another Khalifate Rashid when a person was brought before him and he was told that he wanted to kill you. But he ordered that he may be allowed to leave because punishment cannot be awarded before the crime is committed. In the population spread over 180 million in Nigeria, Muslims also live there along with other religions including the followers of Sunni Maslak and Maktab-e-Tashih which are being led by the Quaid of Nigeria Islamic Movement AllamaShaikh Ibrahim YaqubZakzaki and never supported torture rather he is guilty of opposing oppression and brutality in Palestine and opposing Israel. On this basis he was arrested in 1980 and 1990 but the court had set him free for lack of evidence because the government had failed to provide any evidence of treachery against him which was considered the biggest failure of the government.

Agha Moosavi said that as an outcome of this situation he should have been treated justifiably because freedom of expression is the basic right but the Nigerian army martyred his three dozen companions including three sons of Zakzaki by firing on the Al-Quds rally on Friday 25 July, 2014 which was strongly condemned by the human rights organisations. The government would have punished those responsible keeping the norms of justice but unfortunately when a human being sits on the chair of power he starts thinking that he is the Pharaoh.

The TNFJ chief said that later, on 12 December 2015, the Nigerian army martyred hundreds of people including his remaining sons by attacking the Zakzaki’s Masjid and ImambargahBaqiatullah during the Arbaeen-e-Hussaini. They did not stop here but buried their bodies by torching them without giving them bath and without giving them coffin and burial. They were accused that the Islamic Movement wanted to kill the Nigerian Army Chief the accusation that was rejected by the Islamic Movement and the organisations of human rights. In the said attack, Ibrahim Zakzaki was seriously injured, was arrested and shifted to some unknown place.

Agha Moosavi said that according to newspaper reports, the Masjid and ImambargahBaqiatullah was set on fire and razed to ground along with invaluable copies of Quran, books Saha-e-Sitta, KutabArba’a, Tafaseer-e-Quran and other religious books. The Nigerian Parliament has also expressed shock on this high-handed treatment.

The Quaid-i-MillatJafariya Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah said that at present the whole world has become the symbol of protest on these atrocities committed in Nigeria. Being a Muslim President and being your name after the name of Rasool (SAAW) and Allah, you are requested to order investigations into his incident by forming a tribunal, release AllamaZakzaki and his companions forthwith, give exemplary punishment to those who have committed this crime as giving punishment before committing the crime is contrary to the principles of the Khalifate Rashid, restore the glory of Masjid and ImambargahBaqiatullah by reconstructing it afresh and pay all the damages. He prayed that may Almighty Allah give courage to the Muslim rulers so that they can exercise justice and avoid committing oppression and keep the Islamic World protected from all problems and difficulties.
