Dan Qayyum, the founder of PKKH has now publicly announced that PKKH is parting ways with Zaid Hamid because of the Yusuf Kazab issue. Our only regret is that even in this parting statement PKKH has tried to misrepresent facts, we have discussed that in detail after the press statement of PKKH. The article published on PKKH site is being produced here in verbatim.
March 26, 2010
Takmeel-e-Pakistan is a mission that is above ethnic, sectarian, linguistic divides. When we launched this mission and decided to pass this resolution, our objective was to unite Pakistanis from all walks of life, from the common man on the street to the leading scholars and respected ulema from all over Pakistan.
Unfortunately we have faced stiff opposition and threats of violence and death from certain quarters in the last few weeks, which is why we have decided to clarify our stance with regards to Zaid Hamid and the Yusuf ‘Kazzab’ issue.
PKKH and the Takmeel-e-Pakistan team have never had anything to do and will never have anything to do with any Yusuf Ali Kazzab.
Both PKKH and Takmeel-e-Pakistan are completely ‘independent’ organizations and our association with BrassTacks and Zaid Hamid is due to our agreement on issues concerning Pakistan’s National Security, and projection and promotion of the ideology of Pakistan. We urge all parties to resolve this issue peacefully instead of publicly issuing threats of violence and calling for ‘Jihad’ against fellow muslims – which was threatened in statements in newspapers in the buildup to Takmeel by individuals linked to AMTKN and allied groups.
We respect the noble mission that AMTKN carries forward, and have nothing but the utmost respect for Ulemas, irrespective of their maslaks. We also believe Zaid Hamid to be a patriotic son of Pakistan who has done phenomenal work in a short space of time to make Pakistanis realize their true potential and the beautiful future that awaits them InshaAllah. We believe this issue is resolved soon so the focus can be on Pakistan again, at a time when we face multiple threats from our external enemies.
Pakistanis need to unite at this critical hour. The Takmeel-e-Pakistan resolution that was succesfully presented to the nation on March 23rd 2010, is the first step in this direction, and InshaALLAH we will work hard in the coming days and months to get all leading ulemas, scholars, and thinkers on board with this noble mission and work towards our common goal: implementation of a true Islamic system in Pak Sarzameen and the revival of the Islamic ummah, based on the principles of Quran and Sunnah as demonstrated in the Khilafat-e-Rashidah.
Pakistan, InshaALLAH Hamesha Paindabaad – and may Allah SWT destroy those who oppose efforts to implement His system as we promised on March 23rd, 1940 and again on March 23rd, 2010.
Editor, PKKH and Takmeel-e-Pakistan Resolution Dated March 23rd, 2010.
Dan mentions in his statement that the objective of Takmeel e Pakistan was to unite Pakistanis from all walks of life, from the common man on the street to the leading scholars and respected ulema from all over Pakistan.
However, the leader of the movement Zaid Hamid – frequently visited Ulema’s from the Barelvi maslak and tried his level best to gather their support against Ulema of AMTKN. So the leader of the Takmeel movement himself was working hard to disunite the Ummah on the one issue – which is above ethnic, sectarian, linguistic divides. However, Zaid Hamid has failed miserably in dividing the nation across the lines of various maslaks – just for the sake of his ego, past association and twisted believes.
Dan further mentions that PKKH and the Takmeel-e-Pakistan team have never had anything to do and will never have anything to do with any Yusuf Ali Kazzab and that their association with BrassTacks and Zaid Hamid was due to their agreement on issues concerning Pakistan’s National Security, and projection and promotion of the ideology of Pakistan.
However, ever since the emergence of Yusuf Kazab issue, PKKH acted as a mouthpiece of Zaid Hamid releasing Zaid Hamid’s video statements on the issue, publishing Zaid Hamid’s press releases clarifying his point of view on the issue.
PKKH published Prof Muhiyyudin’s article in favor of Zaid Hamid on their Facebook page on Wednesday 24th of March 2010. Prof Muhiyyudin’s article was written specifically to defend Zaid Hamid on the Yusuf Kazab issue, however it sidestepped from the real issue altogether. This article is still present on the Facebook page and could be viewed here. See snapshot of the article on PKKH facebook page below:
PKKH published the video of Ulema e Karam supporting Zaid Hamid on their website. The videos were published on PKKH with the title Ulema e Karam on Zaid Hamid, however, PKKH has now removed that article from their website and the page is returning a 404 error. Nevertheless, the trails of this article could still be viewed on the facebook wall of PKKH which still contains an entry of the article. See the entry on Facebook page of PKKH here, and see its snapshot below:
PKKH published Zaid Hamid’s press conference on March 19, that Zaid Hamid did in Lahore Press Club on their site and also published it on their Facebook page. The videos of the press conference were published with the title Zaid Hamid Press Conference, final and decisive clarification, however, PKKH has now removed that page from their website and the page is returning a 404 error. Nevertheless, the trails of this article could still be viewed on the facebook wall of PKKH which still contains an entry of the video. See the entry on Facebook page of PKKH here, and see its snapshot below:
PKKH published the press release of Zaid Hamid on the issue on 17th of March, see our coverage of the press release here, which mentions PKKH as the source – however PKKH has now removed that article from their site – therefore the link is returning a 404 error.
And lastly but not the least, who can forget that it was none other than Takmeel.pk that released the leaked videos Zaid Hamid and portrayed it as The Truth behind the allegations. The matter of fact is that the article and videos are still online on the Takmeel website and can be seen here. A snap shot of the 58 min video in which Zaid Hamid is defending Yusuf Ali and calling him great scholar of his time from the Takmeel website is provided below.
I can go on and on, but the point is that PKKH’s association with Zaid Hamid and Brasstacks went far beyond the issues concerning Pakistan’s National Security, and projection and promotion of the ideology of Pakistan. In fact PKKH was acting as a mouthpiece of Zaid Hamid and was aggressively defending Zaid Hamid and by association was defending Yusuf Kazab. As far as Takmeel is concerned, Dan Qayyum will only be fooling himself by saying that it is independent of Zaid Hamid. Takmeel is so strongly connected with Zaid Hamid, that Takmeel would loose its identity and color without Zaid. Sorry brother but the youth out there dont know any Dan Qayyum, all they know about is a person named Zaid Hamid.
It was this defense of a convicted blasphemer that led to such fierce opposition, as we make no distinction between any individual who defends Yusuf Kazab [Zaid Hamid] or the organization that stands behind that individual [PKKH].
We believe that the act of protecting the honor of Prophet Muhammad saaw is the greatest ‘Jihad’ and our ferocity and unwavering stand is a testimony to this believe.
Dan mentions in his statement that We respect the noble mission that AMTKN carries forward, and have nothing but the utmost respect for Ulemas, irrespective of their maslaks.
It would have been more effective and believable had you taken the same stance publicly when Zaid Hamid called the Ulema of AMTKN as Fasadi, Takfiri and Do Takey Ke Molvi in his leaked videos.
Dan further mentions that We also believe Zaid Hamid to be a patriotic son of Pakistan.
Let’s be very clear that Pakistan was formed on the basis of Islam. Without Islam there is no ideological basis for Pakistan. The entire building of Islam is based on the oneness of Allah and finality of Prophet Muhammad saaw. Without the finality of Prophethood – every tom, dick and harry can claim himself to be a prophet and can add new believe in the the religion, so without the believe in finality of prophethood there is no Islam.
A person who is not loyal to the belief of finality of prophethood and defends a false prophet is not loyal to Islam, and a person who is not loyal to Islam is not loyal to Pakistan. There is no concept of patriotism with the Islamic Republic of Pakistan without utmost loyalty to Islam and Khatam e Nabuwat.
I heartly welcome Dan and TeamPKKH’s move to distance themselves from Zaid Hamid. I have nothing but respect for them on this decision. However, I have written my note just to put the record straight and to let everyone know that we did not oppose PKKH or Takmeel because of their struggle to make Pakistan an Islamic Shariah state, but because of their support and defense of Zaid Hamid – a known defender and Khalifa of a convicted blasphemer.
We are very careful not to attack anyone irrespective of their profession on this issue. We have written more than 200 articles, but have not mentioned the names of Maria B, Ali Azmat or other individuals associated with Zaid Hamid, because none of these individuals have come out in public to defend Zaid Hamid’s stand on the issue of Yusuf Kazab.
We published an article against Ahmed Quraishi titled Zaid Hamid’s Mouthpiece Ahmed Quraishi joins the propaganda battle for his master. However, upon receiving Ahmed Quraishi’s clarification, we published Ahmed Quraishi’s clarification in the article Ahmed Quraishi responds to zaidhamidexposition and immediately changed the title of the previous article to Ahmed Quraishi Joins the Propaganda Battle for Zaid Hamid. We published Ahmed Quraishi’s further clarification that he does not support Zaid Hamid on the Yusuf Kazab issue.
I personally apologized to Ahmed Quraishi unconditionally and in clear words for writing that offensive title.
We are not working on character assassination of people. Our mission and effort is to protect the Honor of our Holy Prophet saaw and that we will do, no matter what the cost.
Additionally we believe that the soil of Pakistan may have not produced more loyal and patriotic sons than the ones who stand in our camp. There can’t be individuals more loyal to the Islamic Republic of Pakistan than ones willing to die for the honor of the Prophet of Islam.
