Sirajul Haq terms bill as propaganda against Islam, seminaries

LAHORE: Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Amir, Sirajul Haq on Wednesday said propaganda is being created against Islam and seminaries by passing a bill in the Parliament and, therefore, JI has chosen not to endorse it.

Addressing the Seerat Conference in Lahore, Sirajul Haq said it seems the entire blame for terrorism had been squarely placed on Seminaries.

He said sentiments of the Muslims are being hurt by naming the bill as religious extremism.

The JI Amir demanded of the United Nations to declare religious blasphemy an unforgivable crime.
