The Amir (Chief) of Jamat-e-Islami Pakistan Qazi Hussain Ahmed was warmly received by JI leaders and members along with hundreds of MMA activists in Pakistan on his successful tour of Europe with expressions of great achievements in Islamic preaching. It’s on record that some European countries denied visa to Qazi Hussain Ahmed to expand his recent tour but government of Norway welcomed him.
Qazi Hussain Ahmed who is famous in Pakistan for his firm stand on implementation of Islamic laws and legislations in accordance with Quranic teaching to turn Pakistan in true Islamic state of Muslim refused to comment on many Quranic verdicts. He was on tour of Norway on invitation of Muslim students union of the university here.
Not everybody found his message that unambiguous when he was asked about death penalty of homosexuality in accordance with Quran teaching but he refused to comment but added “- I choose not to answer whether it is right or wrong to kill homosexuals. That is my right as a human being”
He emphasized that a good Muslim is a peaceful Muslim, and that one should meet other people with a smile.
“If you smile at your fellow human beings, you honor God, and if you kill innocent people with terror, you also kill humanity,” he said.
In spite of this he refrained from answering the question about whether it would be right or wrong to kill a homosexual, and if punishing homosexuals would make you a better Muslim.
