PM allows two federal ministers bulletproof vehicles

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has allowed two federal ministers to use bulletproof vehicles while all other ministers, ministers of state and advisers will now be entitled to use 1800cc official cars.

“The prime minister has allowed two ministers to use bulletproof vehicles on the pretext of security threat to them,” sources in the PM House told The Express Tribune.

The two ministers were identified as Khawaja Saad Rafiq and Engineer Khurram Dastgir. Two senior federal ministers are already using bulletproof vehicles.

“The rest of the ministers, ministers of state and advisers to the prime minister, who were allotted cars of 1300cc only, will now be allowed to use cars of 1800cc,” said the sources.

Former prime minister Muhammad Khan Junejo had barred federal ministers from using luxury cars as part of austerity measures. But from his stint onwards successive governments have allowed ministers to use cars of 1300cc and above.

UK: Sunni Mosque leaders dump plans to host extremist hate preacher exposed by Sunday Post

 

UK: Sunni Mosque leaders dump plans to host extremist hate preacher exposed by Sunday Post

The mosque has dumped any plans to host the controversial cleric – and thanked The Sunday Post for alerting them to the preacher’s background.

MOSQUE leaders have praised The Sunday Post for warning them they had booked a hate preacher so extreme he’s banned in Pakistan.

Last week we exclusively revealed that hardline cleric Syed Muzaffar Shah Qadri had been asked to speak at Falkirk Central Mosque.

The booking came despite the fact the preacher had been banned in his native Pakistan for his hardcore message.

The cleric has openly praised a murderer linked to the killing of Glasgow shopkeeper Asad Shah, 40, who was stabbed 27 times by killer Tanveer Ahmed, 32, after wishing customers a “Happy Easter”.

Now, the mosque has dumped any plans to host the controversial cleric – and thanked The Sunday Post for alerting them to the preacher’s background.

Mosque committee member Khalid Saeed is delighted the paper helped spare their blushes.

“The mosque would never knowingly give a platform to views that counter our beliefs of tolerance and non- violence,” he said.

“We would like to take this opportunity to thank The Sunday Post for raising this issue and would like to reiterate our community’s zero tolerance for hatred or violence of any kind.

“Following engagement with members and our own youth committee, Falkirk Central Mosque will ensure that progressive values are promoted and where possible will work with Police Scotland to ensure community safety.

“In addition, the mosque committee is reviewing its procedures when allowing an external booking to ensure this never happens again.”

Politicians praised the mosque for its stance. Scottish Conservative equalities spokeswoman Annie Wells said: “This is a welcome move.”

Concerns were raised about Syed Muzaffar Shah Qadri with British authorities before he arrived from Pakistan last month.

Sources claim a Home Office anti-terror line was tipped off about the cleric. However, The Home Office has refused to be drawn on the issue.

The murder of Asad Shah in March sparked anger across Scotland.

The shopkeeper was stabbed repeatedly by Ahmed, who has been caged for at least 27 years for the crime.

At sentencing judge Lady Rae described the attack as “barbaric”.

The objective of this jalsa or the congregation is to present the peaceful teachings of Islam. Likewise to call people towards their creator, to develop love and affection and promoting brotherhood are among the noble objectives.

As the Uniform Civil Code faces opposition from AIMPLB, the Ahmadiyya Muslim community on the other hand supports it

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community has declared support to Uniform Civil Code (UCC), saying the loyalty to the nation is also an important constituent of the faith.

Opposing the rigid stand of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board (AIMPLB) and other Muslim groups, leaders of the community on Tuesday said the Islamic Sharia (laws) were liberal enough to accommodate solutions to the evolving problems.

The Chief Secretary of Ahmadiyya sect Shiraz Ahmed said there was no sanction to triple talaq in one go. “We recognise that Islamic law can be interpreted as per requirements. We must bring real Islamic teachings to the knowledge of government and public, where it is mentioned that granting divorce to a women must have gaps, to allow reconciliation and rapprochement,” he said.

The community is organising 12th annual congregation on December 26-28 in the Qadian city, where participants from 50 countries are expected to arrive, including a large delegation from Pakistan. Last year, around 5,000 people from Pakistan had attended the event but this year their confirmation is yet to received, said Tariq Ahmad Ahmadiyya, spokesperson of Ahmadiyya Muslim Jaamat India.

“Generally their confirmation is received late as border clearance issues are to be managed. But those coming by flights will definitely participate despite the tension between the two countries,” he said.

The event will be marked by a world religions session in which people from different faiths will suggest solutions to the problems faced by world, Shiraz added. On the last day, a televised address will be given by Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, worldwide head of the community based in London. “The message of love and loyalty towards ones nation will also be emphasised during the discussions at the event,” Shiraz said.

The objective of this jalsa or the congregation is to present the peaceful teachings of Islam. Likewise to call people towards their creator, to develop love and affection and promoting brotherhood are among the noble objectives, said the organisers.

Rejecting that there was any political motive or an attempt to confuse Muslims, organisers said the gathering had no other motive, but spiritual where people from all over the world will participate. The community spans over 209 countries.

Pakistan: Electronic media downplay mob attack on Ahmadi centre

Pakistan: Electronic media downplay mob attack on Ahmadi centre

This is not the first time that all the TV channels irrespective of their policies or operational styles exercised restraint from covering a sensitive issue.

ISLAMABAD: The mob attack on a worship place of the Ahmadi community in Chakwal on Monday was downplayed by the electronic media due to a self-restraint as well as apprehensions of strict monitoring by the regulator.

The only coverage of the incident by the electronic media was through the display of tickers.

Though the mob grew and became violent, occupying the Ahmadi place of worship, most of the channels claimed that they sensed the sensitivity of the matter and observed self-restraint.

“The electronic media is becoming mature enough to shift from popular journalism to responsible journalism,” said Iftikhar Sheerazi, the Islamabad’s bureau chief at DawnNews. “Primarily, it is our duty, not Pemra’s, to judge the sensitivity of the news.”

This is not the first time that all the TV channels irrespective of their policies or operational styles exercised restraint from covering a sensitive issue.

“Last time, a similar responsible attitude was witnessed after violence broke out in Rawalpindi during the Ashura procession in 2013,” said Aun Sahi, Islamabad’s bureau chief at Channel 24.

He said any news coverage that could trigger a spiral effect should be placed at the low priority.

Meanwhile, a senior official of another new channel requesting anonymity said religious sentiments were a serious issue and airing anything sensitive on Rabiul Awwal 12 (Monday) could have been catastrophic.

“There were rallies and other activities on the streets. The main procession in Rawalpindi passed through an Ahmadi community centre on Murree Road. Simple news about the Chakwal incident could have triggered random riots across the country,” said the official.

However, some channels displayed tickers stating there was a clash between two groups in the Chakwal area.

“First we filed tickers about skirmishes between the participants of 12 Rabiul Awwal procession and the followers of the Ahmadi community from their centre,” said the official. “But the head office directed us that the tickers should not be specific or sensational.”

This created suspicion that Pemra might have asked the head offices of news channels to censor the news of the attack.

However, Pemra spokesman Mohammad Tahir denied that the authority had directed any channel to exercise restraint over the coverage of the Chakwal incident.

“Though it was a public holiday and the Pemra office was closed, our monitoring continued. Like emergency plans in all the sectors, we have SOPs and if any channel overplayed or sensationalised any incident or news, we do intervene,” he added.

A senior official of Pemra told Dawn that one or two channels did play strong tickers but they were called immediately and the focus remained on the Eid Milad processions and activities.

Shakeel Anjum, the president of the National Press Club, said the restraint by the electronic media was a positive sign.

But he cautioned that such practice should not be adopted as a tradition to censor news.

“Any news is restricted if it is feared that its widespread coverage can create a law and order situation.”

However, he said in routine news about mob attacks on any place of worship or public installation should not be restricted.
