Safdar demanded to rename the Professor Abdus Salam Center for Physics

ISLAMABAD – Captain (r) Safdar Awan, the son-in-law of deposed PM Nawaz Sharif, has demanded strict actions against Ahmadis who are declared as non-Muslims in the constitution of Pakistan.

Addressing the National Assembly on Tuesday, the PML-N leader called for complete curbs on Ahmadis in government, army and private employment.

He asked, “Can these people, who attack the finality of Prophet Muhammed (PBUH), be loyal to a country, which came into existence in the name of Finality of Prophethood?”

He also demanded to rename the Professor Abdus Salam Center for Physics, saying “Dr. Adbus Salam was a non-Muslim, and the Constitution of Pakistan declares him a non-Muslim and we don’t want any department to be affiliated with the name of any such person.”

Last year, honoring the services of overlooked Pakistani hero, former prime minister Nawaz Sharif had renamed Islamabad’s National Centre for Physics at Quaid-i-Azam University as ‘Professor Abdus Salam Center for Physics’.

Safdar, who is married to ex-PM Sharif’s daughter Maryam Nawaz, asked for complete constraint on admission of Ahmadi’s in armed forces. He blamed the failure of 1971, on Qadayani’s leading high posts during the war.

“In 1971, the Corps Commander of Sindh, General Abdullah Ali, was a Qadiyani; his brother was a Qadiyani and I’m shocked that even the Air Force chief was Qadiyani. How can you win a war when all the high ranks were given to the enemies of Islam.”

The recent outburst against Qadiyani’s follows the political and religious parties’ protest against the ‘un-Islamic’ amendments in the new Election Bill, which according to them clash with provision regarding finality of Prophethood. After the protests, the clause was reinstated and Speaker National Assembly called it a mere ‘clerical mistake’.

Captain (r) Safdar arrived in the country from London on Monday, and was presented in front of accountability court after being arrested at Islamabad airport. He was released after submission of Rs. 5 million bail.

Several Ahmadi families, including Pakistan’s first Nobel Prize winner Dr. Abdus Salam, have moved out of Pakistan since 1974 which was when the country declared the community as non-Muslims but the group has become particularly vulnerable since 1984, when Pakistan passed laws forbidding them from saying or doing anything associated with Islam.
