Islamist gets taste of his own medicine . . .
Begging Other Islamists for Mercy
According to an unsigned article from the Monitoring Desk of Pakistan Today (12/6/2014), "Junaid Jamshed has no immediate plans to return" to Pakistan and face the music:
Junaid Jamshed, the pop star-turned-televangelist accused of blasphemy by the sectarian Pakistan Sunni Tehreek, is in hiding in London and has no immediate plans to return to Pakistan, according to a member of the Tableeghi Jamaat . . . . Karachi police opened an investigation into Jamshed's alleged blasphemy after a viral video showed the 50-year-old evangelist citing the youngest wife of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) to make a broader point about women's alleged inherent flaw of seeking attention.Ludovica Iaccino writes in an earlier article for the International Business Times (December 2, 2014) that this "Pakistani pop singer begs forgiveness after being accused of blasphemy," first informing us precisely what was said:
A visibly distraught Jamshed apologised for his actions . . . . "This is my mistake and it happened because of my ignorance and lack of knowledge and I seek forgiveness from the Muslim world . . . . I request my brothers to forgive me and I am thankful to them for pointing out my mistake, . . . [which] happened unintentionally and I seek forgiveness from Allah."
However, Mohammad Mobin Qadri, a Sunni Tehreek leader who accused Jamshed of blasphemy, says this [ignorance] was "irrelevant," and demanded the former pop star answer for his alleged crimes.
The former singer maintains his innocence, but appears to have become dejected by the blasphemy allegations.
"Mother Ayesha was an attention seeker. She would often fake illness to gain the attention of the Prophet Muhammad," he allegedly said. "Even a prophet's companionship cannot change the nature of a woman."What an irony if Mr. Juniad Jamshed is allowed to remain in London of the infidels hiding from his fellow Islamists! He might as well now turn to Islam's Shia branch, for I'm told that they openly denigrate Ayesha, and if so, he can be an Islamist all over again!
Sarwat Ijaz Qadri, chief of the Pakistan Sunni Tehreek organisation said: "Juniad Jamshed should be immediately arrested and put on trial under the blasphemy laws . . . . He doesn't deserve to be forgiven for his sacrilegious remarks about the Mother of Believers, Hazrat [i.e., Honorable] Ayesha."
The police have opened a blasphemy investigation and it is also believed that Islamic authorities issued a fatwa - a religious ruling which sometimes results in a death sentence . . . . Blasphemy is a serious crime in Pakistan, which can carry the death sentence in some cases.
