For taking down banners – SIC plans to sue DCO for blasphemy


LAHORE – The Sunni Ittehad Council (SIC) will sue Lahore DCO Ahad Cheema for blasphemy, Pakistan Today learnt on Wednesday. The decision was taken in a meeting of the SIC hierarchy in Lahore. A complaint in this regard will be submitted at a proper forum within two to three days. Blasphemy laws will be invoked for the purported desecration of the Holy Prophet’s (PBUH) name inscribed on hoardings, billboards and banners of the organisation which were removed on the orders of the DCO from various parts of the city.
The SIC alleged that the administration shredded and flung to the ground posters carrying names of the Quaid-e-Azam, Allama Iqbal, Pir Syed Jamaat Ali Shah , Pir Mohyudeen Shah Golarvi and Maulana Shah Ahmad Noorani. A legal team headed by former federal deputy attorney general Mian Khalid Habib Elahi gave SIC leaders a detailed briefing on the implications of the legal process. It was announced that a committee under JUP-F Punjab General Secretary Pir Syed Mohammad Iqbal Shah ex MPA would be formed to start legal proceedings.
SIC Spokesman Muhammad Nawaz Kharal refused to comment on whether SIC was considering taking legal action against the DCO. He, however, said that the Holy Prophet (PBUH) and leaders of freedom struggle had been disrespected. Earlier, a meeting between SIC’s representatives and the DCO ended on a negative note with the DCO refusing to grant permission for holding a conference. Harsh words were also exchanged on
the occasion.


  1. You'd think this would be surprising, but it isn't really. Expect these clowns to do something even crazier, like have a cow over something like spelling "Mohammad" with a "U". Oh wait, something like that's already happened. I've received text messages from very devout and pious friends asking me to write "Makkah" instead of "Mecca" and say "Masjid" instead of "Mosque". How bored are we?

  2. Kaala Qanoon Zindabad!

    And then we worry about why Pakistan does NOT have a positive image!

    Good luck when Pakistan has been taken hostage by bunch of goat-faced thugs and bigots!
