Imam to government: enforce Sharia law within seven days or we will do it ourselves

The director of the Jamia HafsaMadrassah, who along with students attacked and then forced the closure of a brothel in Islamabad, clarifies: it is not a request it is an ultimatum.

Islamabad (AsiaNews/Dt) – It i san ultimatum not a request: if within a week Sharia law is not enforced throughout the country than true Muslims “will islamify society on their own”.   Maulana Abdul Aziz, Imam of the Lal Masjid Mosque and director of  Jamia Hafsa Madrassah has said.


Speaking after Friday prayers to thousands of faithful, Aziz clarified: “If the government ignores our requests than we will have to enforce them ourselves”. The man then asked for the closure of “all brothels and gaming houses as soon as possible”, also adding in this case that “that aim may only be achieved thanks to the help of the Madrassah students”.


The Imam’s threats must not be ignored, because just days ago female students from the Madrassah directed by Aziz  attacked a suspected brothel taking the women who lived within the house hostage.  


Sources say that the Madrassah religious leaders are preparing a “list of impure places” to be forcibly shut down.   The plan concluded Aziz, “is not limited to Islamabad. We will meet April 5th to decide on an line of action together with other good Muslims”.
