Mufti Usmani terms harsh statements of PM violation of Islamic values


KARACHI: Renowned Islamic scholar Mufti Taqi Usmani has expressed serious concerns over the ongoing confrontation among the top political leaders and said that Islamic values are violated in the political row in the country.

Mufti Usmani’s statement was issued on his official Twitter account on Monday after a series of harsh statements from Prime Minister Imran Khan against his political rivals during the past few days since the Opposition filed a no-trust motion against the premier.

“It’s frightening to think about how the Islamic rules and values are being abused in political arguments. May Allah keep us safe from the consequences. In Surah Al-Hujurat, the Holy Qur’an says, do not make fun of one another, do not gossip, do not be suspicious, and do not call anyone by name,” he said in the statement.

He also urged the political leadership to be decent as it is also harmful for society. “Whether the difference is political or ideological, to make it a matter of taking one’s life and abusing each other is deadly for the society. Criticism is done through arguments and not by vulgar language. Think about where we are going,” he said.

Earlier, Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain, a veteran politician and the leader of the PML-Q also criticized the ongoing political quarrel and said that if Prime Minister Imran Khan had followed Quranic teachings, he would not have attempted to malign or call politicians names. He urged him not to abandon decency and tolerance.
