Jamiat Ulama-e-Islam – Fazl (JUI-F) senior leader Mufti Kifayatullah has celebrated the murder of blasphemy accused man in Peshawar court, terming it as an act of ‘justice’.
The JUI-F leader took to Twitter to express his opinion on the matter. While referring to the murder, he said, “I have seen the justice in Pakistani court for the very first time.”
An ex-Ahmadi man was gunned down in a courtroom in Peshawar on Wednesday over blasphemy charges that he had been facing for two years.
According to the spokesperson of the Ahmadiyya community, Tahir Ahmad was not a member of the community. “It is being reported that he was Ahmadi, which is not true. He was born Ahmadi but left the community many years ago.”
Initial reports suggest that the victim suffered from mental health problems, and he died on the spot from the bullet wounds.
The suspect, a reported graduate of a seminary, was arrested by the police, but it is still unclear how he had taken the gun inside the courtroom. Speaking about the murder, he said Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) came ‘to his dream and asked him to shoot this man’
