Writ Petition in Lahore High Court against Ahmadiyya English translation of the Holy Quran
Lahore; January 15, 2019: One, Advocate Bilal Riaz Sheikh has approached Lahore High Court with a writ petition against the Federation of Pakistan, etc (in all, 8 authorities and offices) on finding that an App Holy Quran Arabic/English, Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is found in Play Store.
In his petition, Mr Sheikh:
- Demands “severe action against culprits”
- Requests that “this matter should be taken as the most urgent matter”
- Suggests to the court that non-removal of this item “will be the alarming situation for the whole Muslim community, and Allah Almighty will not spare us on the day of Judgment”
- Requests that this “App from the play store may very kindly be banned in Pakistan, in the supreme interest of religious faith & Justice.”
Such is the level of bigotry in Pakistan. An advocate who claims to be Muslim objects strongly against the Ahmadiyya translation of the Holy Quran and expects a High Court to ban it in Pakistan “in the supreme interest of religious faith and justice”.
