Holding of Lesbian, Gay ‘Pride Celebration’ by US envoy condemned

Naib Amir of Jamaat-e-Islami Pakistan Senator Prof. Khurshid Ahmad has also written a letter addressed to the Prime Minister and the Minister of State for Foreign Affairs condemning in strongest terms the shocking report about the US Embassy function to honour the gay and lesbians in Islamabad.

“A bunch of Pakistanis were especially invited to the ceremony obviously to glamourise these develish traits to which even the Western society is generally averse”, he pointed out. “Such obnoxious activities constitute a cultural terrorism and ideological attack on Pakistani society and its religious and cultural moorings”, Prof. Khurshid stressed.

“Since when foreign missions have been given the liberty to impose their perverted values on our society? “, he asked the Prime Minister and Minister of State for Foreign Affairs. Prof. Khurshid requested the Prime Minister to take serious notice of this moral and cultural attack on Pakistan and its society.

Pakistan: Religious groups condemn US embassy gay event

“Such people are the curse of society and social garbage,” the statement released by Jamaat-e-Islami read.

“They don’t deserve to be Muslim or Pakistani, and the support and protection announced by the US administration for them is the worst social and cultural terrorism against Pakistan,” the statement, which was issued in Urdu, is quoted by the AP news agency as saying.

Man and the Future of Civilization: An Islamic Perspective 

“Islam is a movement for social change. It gives not only a clear concept of society and the modus vivendi of bringing about the coveted change in history, but also clear guidelines for socio-economic policy, for some of the key institutions that guarantee the implementation of that policy, and an organised social effort under disciplined leadership to see that these objectives are achieved in space and time. Muslims have this movement-orientated approach to religion. This model operates at three levels: that of the individual, society and the world.”

“Islam wants to bring political power under the control of it’s moral ideas. Such a society and state would be established as a result of a social movement directed towards Islamic revival.”

“Islam also launches a social movement, an international movement requiring all those who accept these ideals and values to establish the new order. Islam is eager to establish the new model in any part of the world.”

The Muslims in al-Qaeda are our brethren, says the top Jamaat-i-Islami ideologue Prof. Khurshid Ahmad

Commenting on these statements, Prof. Ahmad said: ‘There is no contradiction between the two. The Muslims in al-Qaeda are our brethren. They should be punished if they are criminals!’ He sounded mightily reluctant to hold Al-Qaeda responsible for 9/11. He even refused to give any credence to Gulbadeen Hikmatyar’s statement that Al-Qaeda was responsible for 9/11. (It may be added here that Hikmatyar is Jamaat-i-Islami’s favorite Afghan leader.) Instead, he finds “dozens of scholarly books” casting doubt on the official version more credible.

He conceded that the blasphemy laws were being misused, but he did not favor amending them. ‘The punishment for blasphemy is death – in Christianity, the Old Testament, the New Testament, the Quran and the precepts of the Holy Prophet Mohammad.’ The blasphemy does not apply to serious academic debate, he said. ‘It applies only to derogatory remarks.’
