Hakimullah Mehsud is a martyr: Islami Jamhoori-Ittehad  (IJI)  is formed again but this time against the Pakistan Army?

Agha Iqrar Haroon


Islamabad: Pakistan is full of people having sick minds who try to throw mud over establishment and always try to find some event to twist it in their favour and saying others that religious parties in Pakistan were against the creation of Pakistan and they are still against the very existence of Pakistan. Unfortunate to say that religious parties usually give them justifications and logics to establish perfect case against them to paint them (religious parties) are supporting anti-Pakistan elements.

Both major politico-religious parties of Pakistan have claimed that Hakimullah Mehsud is a martyr while JUI has gone far ahead stating that anyone killed by US is a ‘martyr’ even a dog. Both religious parties belong to a particular sect that is Deoband  and both follow format of Islam promoted by Saudi Arabia.

Jamaat-i-Islami Pakistan’s Amir Munawar Hassan commented that Hakimullah Mehsud is a martyr and Fazlur Rehman of Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam says  anyone killed by US is a ‘martyr’ even a dog. Both religious parties were on main row of band of Pakistan Army during the Afghan-Russo Jihad and even after that. Now Taliban are killing Pakistani soldiers and both parties are supporting this massacre of Pakistani Army by the hands of people like late Hakimullah Mehsud by painting him a martyr. Pakistan will see what happens now when first time Pakistan Army has direct contra with religious forces it (Pakistan Army) had been nurturing and supporting against moderate elements.

Pakistan Army has directly been injected financial resources to religious parties to defeat moderates in Pakistani politics in past and Mehran bank scandal also known as Mehrangate, was a major political scandal in the history of Pakistan between 1990-1994 in which senior politicians and political parties were found to have been bribed by Pakistan Army and intelligence officers, from ISI, to prevent the re-election and to destabilize the government of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP). Bygone the days of IJI?  No IJI is back again but this time target is Pakistan Army itself instead of moderates—This is the idea some people are trying to inject in media nowadays. We must not buy this idea. Let both stakeholders (Pakistan Army and religious parties) should decide between them.

Initiated by Pakistan Army’s Chief of Army Staff General Mirza Aslam Beg with the alleged support of President Ghulam Ishaq Khan payments of up to PKR 140 million were made by the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) Director-General Lieutenant-General Asad Durrani and Corps of Engineers Engineer-in-Chief Lieutenant-General Javed Nasir via the owner of Mehran Bank, Yunus Habib. Intelligence funds were deposited in Mehran bank in 1992 propping up what was an insolvent bank as a favor for its owner’s help in loaning money to the Inter-Services Intelligence in 1990 that was used in the creation of the right wing alliance Islami Jamhoori-Ittehad (IJI) and bankrolling the campaigns of many opponents of the PPP. In IJI, sitting Prime Minister of Pakistan was heading the party while JI and JUI were major components.

These elements who are trying to defame religious parties should not understand that religious parties stand for Justice if it is against the Pakistan Army therefore we should not paint as anti-Pakistan but we must appreciate them they stand for their cause—cause whatever they think is Right and according to Shriah and Islam. There is no harm that religious parties are supporting late Hikmatullah Mehsud although he was responsible of killing 8,000 soldiers, officials and even Generals because nothing is important for religious people when they are on Allah Ki Rah (The path towards God). Humans and relations are non-entity when religious people are giving their lives for a Greatest cause—-Shariah rule in Pakistan rather all over the world.
