Refutation: Only “Khabrain” reported Yusuf Kazzab Case?

Based upon the videos that has been released by Zaid Hamid in defense of Yousuf Kazzab which are posted here. We refute the following claim as per our post here:

Claim:

Zaid Hamid claims again and again in video that Only Khabrain reported news of yusuf kazzab and no single newspaper of Pakistan covered it and even no news is from any other news paper because ‘Khabrain reporter’ Mian Ghaffar had some issue of money with yusuf kazzab. According to zaid hamid “ khabrain ne chaar molvi sath mila ke yusuf ko phansa dya”.

Reply:

We again use the book “Fitna yusuf Kazzab” ( published in October 1997 containing all reports and articles regarding yusuf kazzab’s case) and see in 1997 when yusuf was just put in trial and he was not killed, what the writer says on it.

This is very first page of that book after title. The writer Arhsad Quraishi ( died in 2003 May Allah bless him Jannah) first says thanks to Daily Takbeer and the editor of Takbeer “Sarwat Jamal Asmai” then He says thanks to reporter of Daily Ummat “Muhammad Tahir” then he says thanks to Zia Shahid and Mian Ghaffar of Kabrain.

On next page he gives a list of Pakistani news papers and magazines whose reports and articles were included in this book and all of them covered the yusuf kazzab’s story. And we see that top of the list is Takbeer, not Khabrain.

The fact is this that yusuf kazzab’s claim to be Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alayhi wassallam) naoozbillah was first reported by Weekly Takbeer and daily Ummat in Karachi.( most of Yusuf’s followers were in Karachi and Lahore)

See another Page of the same book

If only and only Khabrain (according to zaid hamid) was highlighting this issue and no other news paper reported it then why compiler of all news reports in a book is again writing the name of weekly Takbeer first and then Khabrain? And he also gives a list of more than 6 news papers and magazines which reported yusuf kazzab as false Prophet and the top of the list is Takbeer, not Khabrain.

We should know that Weekly Takbeer was the hot favorite magazine in 1990’s because of its courageous policy even the founder of this magazine Salah ud deen was killed by Karachi Mafias but they did not stop to expose the truth on different hot issues.

Daily Ummat Karachi is also well known because of its Islamist policy.

After reading news in Karachi newspapers, Khabrain started its own investigations because khabrain had started its new edition from Multan so Khabrain assigned this matter to Editor of Khabrain Multan Mian ghaffar ( zaid hamid says him a reporter instead he was editor of Khabrain Multan). Mian ghaffar met yusuf kazzab in lahore and got his point of view and after this meeting Mian ghaffar reached at the coclusion that yusuf Kazzab did not deny his claim to be Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alayhi wassallam) Naoozbillah.

Mian ghaffar in his report march 1997 himself accepts that takbeer and Ummat reported this first then he met yusuf Ali to investigate that matter. Read here the complete conversation of Mian ghaffar and yusuf Kazzab.

Mian ghaffaar’s last question and yusuf Kazzab’s silence was the turning point for Khabrain Editor because If he is not denying to be Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alayhi wassallam) strictly then what did it mean?

And some audio, Video and written material was also available to prove it. This is the story that why Khabrain gave it too importance because Editor was the witness of his Kuffr.

(Lets put ourselves on Mian ghafaar’s place and ask some one that some people think you are Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alayhi wassallam) ( naoozbilah).. and that person is silent on this question… Will we need some “ more” evidences?
We think even whole world stand with that guilty person we will not accept that he is innocent.( Khatam-e-Nabuwwat is the most sensitive and basic Islamic belief after Toheed and there is not room of compromise on it as muslim)

In reply to Zaid hamid’s biggest lie that only and only Khabrain was giving news of yusuf Kazzab’s case, we have so many other reports of other newspapers in 1997..

Lets have a look on some of them.

The above reports are from Daily nawa-e-waqt, Daily Jang, and Daily Din. In next pages we ll also provide reports from other newspapers to prove Zaid Hamid’s lies.

Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu ‘alayhi wassallam) said:

“A believer is not stung twice from the same hole”. [Bukhari, Muslim]
