Zafarullah clarifies remarks regarding betrayal of Judah


Prime Minister’s Special Assistant and State Minister for Law and Justice Barrister Zafarullah Khan clarified his reference to the historical background of betrayal of Judah in his recent press conference and termed it misreported.

A very small group of people have tried to misuse for their ulterior motives his reference to the historical background of betrayal of Judah, he said in a statement issued here. “I believe in Hazrat Isa ibn Maryam (peace be upon him) (Jesus) is a true prophet and has the divine guidance in the form of Injeel-e-Muqadas (The Bible),” he clarified.

He also said that although this malicious act of a very few people did not deserve to be responded to, but to put the record straight. “Jesus is one of the very few greatest benefactors of humanity and has a major contribution in whatever goodness and the light we have achieved in our world so far,” he said.

“As a Muslim, I cannot even differentiate one prophet from the other as all are holy and divine.” Zafarullah maintained that his reference to Judah was to indicate his betrayal and to declare the truthfulness and the greatness of the Jesus and trying to find another meaning is highly unfortunate and disappointing and such sensitive issues and holy persons shall not be used for ulterior motives.

Personally, he said he was very much influenced by the simplicity, humanity, piety and universal love of Jesus. As a political worker, he said he had helped many Christian associations and groups to protect, preserve and promote their fundamental rights in Pakistan. He thanked all the Christian friends and the media that had foiled the malicious move to create a mischief.
