    Islamabad: Several clerics have issued fatwas against former Pakistani minister Sherry Rehman and declared her an infidel for calling for changes in the blasphemy law, prompting civil society activists to register a complaint with police in the port city of Karachi today.

    Media reports said the imam of Sultan Masjid, one of Karachi's biggest mosques, declared Rehman a 'kaafir' (infidel) and 'wajib-ul-qatl' (fit to be killed) while delivering a sermon after the Friday prayers.

    The mosque has close ties to the Saudi Arabian government.

    Islamic hardliners who organised a massive rally in Karachi today also issued a pamphlet that named Rehman as a person who "has invoked the religious honour of Pakistan's Muslims" for calling for changes in the blasphemy law.

    The threats came days after a police guard gunned down Punjab Governor Salmaan Taseer for criticising the blasphemy law.

    Civil society activists today filed a complaint against the imam of Sultan Masjid at the Darakhsan police station in Karachi.

    The complaint was registered on behalf of Rehman, a senior leader of the Pakistan People's Party, Salmaan Taseer's son Shaan Taseer and journalist Ali Chishti.

    In the complaint, the civil society activists alleged that the imam of Sultan Masjid had also lauded Mumtaz Qadri, the policeman who assassinated Salmaan Taseer.

    Chishti told the media that civil society groups feared for Rehman's life following the murder of the Punjab Governor.

    The civil society activists said they were proud to be Muslims but rejected murdering people in the name of Islam.

    Hardliners have been gunning for Rehman since she tabled a private bill in parliament to remove the mandatory death sentence for blasphemy.

    Reports have said Rehman has been facing pressure from within the PPP to leave Pakistan for her own security.

    Security has been enhanced at Rehman's residence in Karachi and she has told the media she will not leave Pakistan.

    Salman Tasser is being made a martyr here in India and abroad as a liberal and modern Pakistani politician. However, Mr. Tasser did not have very good points when it comes to India. Sherry Rahman is also the same. Having said that, these people have at the least realized the growing menace of Jihadism and have stood up against it. The fact to notice is that, now they are against Jihadism. If things go right, the day is not far when they will rise against the PA & ISI, which PA won't like a bit. So, in conclusion, I see more dark days ahead for Pakistan.

    I don't know why the Pakistani Jihadists are acting like Pussies. All these itsy bitsy things are not effective anymore with today's enemies of Pakistan, who are conspiring with the RAW, CIA and Mossad to destroy the values of the Pakistani population. It is time that all men who do not sport a beard are declared 'Wajib-Ul-Qatal' - look at Afghanistan's Taliban, which was the only true modern Islamic nation that enforced this rule.

    My dear brothers of Pakistan: waste no time. And this declaration must be followed by real action - that alone can save Pakistan from the evil designs of the Zionists and the Hindus.

    Pakistan has taken a different path right from 1947, so there is no need to delude ourself hopeing they would understand it, they wont choose the way of secularism.

    Pakistan is reaching a tipping point where a man without a beard and a women without a burka will be "wajib-ul-qatl" (derved to be killed) by default. That day is not that far if one goes by the support/praise the killer of the Salman Taseer got.

    Here you go : Pro-Qadri website registered on fake India address

    ISLAMABAD: A website eulogising the assassin of Punjab Governor Salmaan Taseer, set up by unknown persons, was registered using a fake address in India, Pakistani civil society activists said.

    A day after Elite Force policeman Mumtaz Qadri gunned down the outspoken Governor on January 4 for criticising the controversial blasphemy law, the website mumtazqadri.com appeared on the Internet.

    The website features several videos that show Qadri singing 'naats' or hymns, including one in which he is shown on stage with an assault rifle slung over his shoulder.

    There is also a message justifying the killing of Taseer for "inviting God's anger".

    Civil society activists, who are trying to get the website shut down, found out details regarding the registration of the website today.

    The registration service for the site was provided by VAIOWEB and it was registered by M M K Waqar.

    The address given for the registration is Noor Hospital, Delhi, Karnataka, 67890, India - obviously a fake as there is no town or city named Delhi in Karnataka state.

    The telephone number listed for the registration - + 91.7567654323 - too appears to be fake as it does not match any of the STD codes for Karnataka.

    Taseer's assassination has exposed the deep divide within Pakistani society.

    Over 40,000 supporters of hardline groups, including the Jamaat-ud-Dawah, rallied in support of the blasphemy law and Taseer's assassin in Karchi yesterday.

    Qadri has also been feted by lawyers and members of religious groups during court appearances.

    Crowds showered rose petals on Qadri and scores of lawyers have offered to defend him free of charge.

    Liberals have mounted smaller protests against the assassination and efforts to eulogise Qadri.

    They are also active in cyberspace, where they have initiated efforts to shut down Facebook pages set up for Qadri.

    Pakistan is perfect example and we should watch and learn from them and not give power to religious loonies.
