They also burnt effigy of Altaf Hussain in protest. They demanded the government impose complete ban on the MQM. Meanwhile, the Multan District Bar Association organised a conference against Altaf Hussain’s hate speech and demanding the government trial Altaf Hussain. “It is the time for the government to take action against Altaf Hussain in the light of his hater speech”, the lawyers demanded. DBA president Azimul Haq Pirzada said that it was shameful that the MQM was still working in the country while its chief abusing Pakistan. “Allegations that the MQM had links with India were not new but his fresh hate speech was alarming”, he added. He said that Altaf Hussain’s speeches against security agencies had stirred a serious controversy in the country.

Shah Rukn-e-Alam was the son of Pir Sadar-Al-Din Arif. He was born in Multan on Friday, the 9th of Ramadan 649 Hijri (26 November 1251).[1] He was the grandson and successor of Sheikh Baha-ud-din Zakariya.

Shah Rukn-e-Alam died on Friday, the 7th of Jumada al-awwal 735 Hijri (3 January 1335). He was buried in the mausoleum of his grandfather, according to his own will. After sometime, however, his coffin was transferred to the present mausoleum. Shah Rukn-e-Alam never married. He regarded the children of Sheikh Hameed ud Din al Hakim as his own children and said that people will remember his name through Hakim’s generations. Upon his death, Shah Rukn-e-Alam conferred his spiritual succession to Sheikh Hameed ud Din al Hakim, buried at Mau Mubarak in Rahim Yar Khan, who was his Ataleeq-e-Awwal, Khalifa-e-Awwal and was married to his aunt, the daughter of Sheikh Baha-ud-Din Zakariya.

What Happened With Qandeel Blouch Murder Case???

Qandeel’s three brothers involved in her murder: police

From Nadeem Shah

MULTAN: Police investigation has established that three brothers were involved in the murder of their sister Qandeel Baloch for honour.

The accused are Muhammad Wasim, Aslam Shaheen and Muhammad Arif. Muhammad Arif has been living in Saudi Arabia for a long time and Aslam Shaheen is a soldier while only Wasim is in police custody.

Police investigation has also established that accused Wasim and his cousin Haq Nawaz had strangled Qandeel Baloch. Police are reviewing the polygraph test report of taxi driver Abdul Basit in which he confessed his relationship with Mufti Qavi. Police said that the polygraph test report showed that accused Abdul Basit knew the murder plan.

The investigators revealed that Basit had allegedly driven accused Wasim and Haq Nawaz to Multan from Qandeel’s ancestral Shah Sadr Din village, Dera Ghazi Khan, on July 15 and dropped them to Dera Ghazi Khan after the murder on July 16. They said that Basit had handed himself over to police on July 27 in Multan. Qandeel’s father and complainant Muhammad Azam had already nominated accused Abdul Basit in the murder case.

The Regional Police Office Legal Branch sources told The News that recommendations made by the RPO Legal Branch were ignored in registering the murder case.

A senior legal official at the RPO Office on condition of anonymity said that the RPO Legal Branch had held meeting soon after the murder and recommended that the Muzaffarabad SHO should be made complainant into the case instead of relying on Qandeel’s father Muhammad Azam to avoid possible reconciliation.

The source said that the Legal Branch and the Multan District Attorney held a meeting and recommended incorporation of Section 305 of the PPC along with Section 311 of the PPC to ensure state as a complainant. However, Legal Branch’s all recommendations were set aside and Qandeel’s father Muhammad Azam made complainant, the source added. The RPO Legal Branch officials feared complainant Muhammad Azam might pardon the accused under the Qisas Law. The sources said that the incomplete challan of the case was expected to be submit in the next couple of days.

When contacted, Mufti Qavi completely denied any relationship with accused Abdul Basit. He claimed that the police did not contact him since he had submitted his written reply. He, however, assured the police of cooperating with them in the case.

On Monday, Judicial Magistrate Qamar Zaman Tarrar sent two accused – taxi driver Abdul Basit and Muhammad Zafar – to the jail on completion of 14-day physical remand. Two more accused – Wasim and Zafar – were already in the jail on judicial remand.
