Sir,

I am President of Majlis-e-Tahafiz-e-Khatam-Nabawat, Islamabad. On October 3, 2000, I along with Qari Abdul Waheed Qasmi, Nazim, Majlis Tahafaze Khatam-e-Nabowat, Islamabad and Mufti Khalid Mir were present in our office G-6/1, House No: 1159-B, Street No: 49 that Mohammed Asghar Khan s/o Arbab Khan Afridi of House No: 86/19/B, G-9/2 came there and handed over to me a photo copy of an application bearing signatures of 11 persons. He told me verbally that we all companions were doing course at Capital College G-9, Markaz, Islamabad. On October 2, 2000, Professor. Dr. Younus Shaikh during a lecture passed some derogatory remarks against Holy Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) which falls under Section 285-C PPC (Blasphemy Act). Prophet Moahmmed (PBUH) was a non-Muslim till the age of 40. (2) He had not been incisionsed (khatna) till 40. (3) Holy Prophet (PBUH) married for fist time at 25. At that time he was neither a prophet nor a Muslim, therefore his "Nikah" was not solemnized. (4) At 40 his "Baghal' (armpit) and "zer-naaf" (under-naval) hair were not removed. (5) His parents were non-Muslims. We cut a very sorry figure, after hearing him and going through this petition. After hearing and reading application we were extremely sad and we immediately convened a meeting. During the meeting it was decided that a case against the blasphemer Dr Shaikh Younus should be registered. It is therefore, requested that a case be instituted against the accused and he may be punished accordingly.
