Pakistani regime has filed a blasphemy case against Ahl-e-Sunnat scholar Mufti Hanif Qureshi under a controversial law that has been passed with the sole intention to target Shias. Hafiz Shahid Mehmood filed this defamation FIR of the Sahabah–companions of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH), in Rawalpindi against Mufti Hanif Qureshi, a prominent religious scholar of Ahl-e-Sunnah Barelvi school. It should be noted that Mufti Hanif Qureshi often exposes the enemies of Ahl-al-Bayt in his speeches.

Weeks ago Pakistani Senate had passed the controversial “Criminal Laws (Amendment) Bill 2023” which makes any criticism of Yazid, Aby Sufiyan and Mu’awiya as a criminal offence. Shias see this as a deliberate attempt by Pakistan’s Sunni majority to harass and sideline them and make it difficult to practice their faith.

It should be noted that in the FIR filed against Mufti Hanif Qureshi, the accuser has claimed that he insulted Sahabi Umar bin Abi Waqqas, while in the viral video, Mufti Hanif Qureshi can be seen insulting Yazid and all those involved in the killing of Imam Hussain at the Karbala massacre. Using harsh words, Mufti Hanif Qureshi can be seen as saying “…how can we list the enemies of Ahl-al-Bayt as Sahabi”. Observers say that Maulana Hanif Qureshi actually wanted to mention Umar-Ibn-Saad-Abi-Waqqas along with Yazid, but he mistakenly took the name of Umar Ibn-Abi-Waqqas.
