Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal (MMA) acting president Qazi Hussain Ahmad on Monday warned the government it would would launch a great protest movement if it tried to take the ‘jihadi’ inculcations out of school syllabi.
Speaking at the Jamaat-e-Islami’s Mansoora Degree College, he said the government was eliminating words like jihad and mujahid and quranic verses regarding jihad from school textbooks, which was tantamount to treachery with the nation and the ideology of Pakistan. “To combat this, a major jihadi campaign has become necessary,” Qazi declared.
Criticizing President Musharraf’s polices, he said the Pakistan First slogan was misleading the nation. “He has no concept of ummah, but the general should note that the country came into existence on Islamic ideology and it could survive on that basis alone”, he said, criticizing the US for wanting to overwhelm ‘the ummah’ mentally and physically.
