A maulvi, Abdullah bin Moneeb, has declared himself 11th Imam of Islam. Quoting Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH), Imam Abdullah said, ‘I, Imam Abdullah bin Moneeb, with the grace of God and kindness of the last Prophet (PBUH), announce that I’m the 11th Khalifa Rashid of Islam and anyone who opposes me and my followers will be damned’.
In a video released on YouTube, he was addressing a press conference on Friday from an unknown place. He claimed that Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) had predicted about him. He also quoted a Hadith in this regard. He said that he was also the guardian of the appearance of Imam Mahdi. He also invited the youth of Pakistan to join him for uprising of Islam. He asked the people to ‘bayt’ (oath of allegiance) him otherwise they would be effused of Islam (Islam se kharij).
He said the sacrifices of innocent people of Kashmir, Palestine and other countries would not go waste. He warned the people not to humiliate or ridicule him, his family and the people related to him. He asked COAS Qamar Bajwa and PM Imran Khan to follow him otherwise God’s wrath was inevitable.
According to the latest reports, the police were raiding the different places to find the self-proclaimed khalifa.
