Pakistani rulers lack courage to speak for Muslim world: Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri
Friday, Sep 8, 2017
PAT Chairman Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri has said that cowardly, corrupt and begging-bowl carrying rulers do not have the courage to speak up for the Muslim world. He said that Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif showed insensitivity by choosing to not talk to his Chinese counterpart about the unfolding human tragedy in Burma, adding that China is an important country for Burma. He said that Pakistan cannot remain aloof from the killings of thousands of Muslims of Burma and their enforced migration from their own country. He said that the government of Pakistan cannot absolve itself of its responsibility by merely passing a resolution. He said that the workers of PAT and MQI have staged protest demonstrations across the country and proved that the Muslim world is like one body politic and we are equally piqued by the sorry state of affairs in which Burmese Muslims find themselves. He asked as to how long will the UN keep silent on the killings and atrocities in Burma?
Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri made these remarks while talking to various delegations of PAT and MQI at his residence yesterday. He said that raising a voice for the Muslims of Burma is the responsibility and obligation of every member of the Muslim community. He said that if the Islamic world cannot immediately come to the aid of the Muslims in Burma, at least they can allocate financial resources to help those who have been able to migrate to other regions. He said that the Turkish government has set a splendid example worthy of emulation by supplying food to the camps of the Rohingya Muslims. He said that MQI is the only organization of the world whose workers celebrated Eid-ul-Azha with their Burmese Muslim brothers and sisters, adding that they distributed meat and gifts among them on the sacred day. He said that we will continue this process of assistance and aid on self-help basis. He said that he has passed on necessary instructions to MWF (UK) in this regard.
Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri congratulated the PAT and MQI workers, religious scholars, civil society organizations on organizing rallies and public meetings in 114 major and 846 small cities of the country to express solidarity with the Rohingyas.
