Khatame Nabuwwat meddles in international politics
Clerics of the Khatme Nabuwwat Organization are essentially interested in politics rather than religion. They seek Islamabad under the cover of Islam. As such, they leave no stone unturned to seek political gains. They boarded the Fazl-ur-Rehman bandwagon to secure some political mileage. According to a press release in the Daily Jang Lahore of August 25, 1999, Maulana Khan Muhammad, Amir of the International Khatame Nabuwwat stated that the Khatame Nabuwwat Conference at London congratulated Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman on taking a brave stand against the United States. The headlines given were:
- The Khatame Nabuwwat Conference assures support to the JUI against the US.
- The likely attack of American Imperialism against Afghanistan and Usama Bin Laden amount to Terrorism. The Silence of Rulers is Deplorable.
- The Ulema should Confront the US till Death.

In another report, published in the Daily Khabrain of August 7, 1999 Majlis Ahrar Islam, a rabid anti-Ahmadiyya party, declared to provide full support to Maulana Fazlur Rehman, the JUI chief. The Ahrari Amir, Syed Ataul Mohsin Bokhari asserted that all means would be used to support their drive against American intervention.
In a report published in the Daily Nawai Waqt, Lahore of 26 August 1999, Qari Shabbir Ahmad Usmani, the Secretary Information of the International Khatme Nabuwwat Movement stated that the Qadianis are supported by Jews and Christians, and they are enemies of Islam and the country; until the Sharia penalty for apostasy is imposed, they will not desist from their evil designs.
Mullas are a queer breed – to put it mildly.
