Lahore, Apr.23 (ANI): Taking on Tehreek-e-Nifaz-e-Shariat-e-Muhammadi (TNSM) chief Sufi Muhammad, Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) chief Syed Munawar Hassan has called him a ‘kafir’ (unbeliever).
Talking to media persons after holding talks with Khaksar Tehreek chief Hamidud Din Almashraqi, Hassan said Muhammad had fought counselor elections’ in the past, so he should refrain calling the constitution and National Assembly members’ ‘un-Islamic’.
“Sufi Muhammad should avoid making statements that have potential to damage the peace deal, and should take care before giving statements about the current system,” The Daily Times quoted Hassan, as saying.
He also criticized PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif for calling Obama his favourite personality.
Hassan said Sharif’s comments implied that he does not care for those innocent people who have been killed in the US drone strikes inside Pakistan’s territory. (ANI)
