Pak mosque denies link with UK-based radical Islamist group planning fatwa on Malala

Asia, Wed, 21 Nov 2012 ANI

London, Nov. 21 (ANI): Islamabad's Lal Masjid has distanced itself from the radical London preacher Anjem Chaudhry who has announced to issue a fatwa against 15-year-old activist Malala Yousufzai for "turning her back against Islam".

UK-based Chaudhry had earlier announced on his website 'Sharia4Pakistan' that he would hold a conference in the mosque premises to issue fatwas on Malala, and former and present top leaders of Pakistan, reports The News.

The mosque administration, however, has denied having been in contact with the banned Al-Muhajiroun members, which includes Chaudhry.

"Maulana Abdul Aziz and the whole mosque administration condemn the inflammatory statements used by this group, clearly seeking publicity. We are not aware of any conference in the mosque on 30th November and it's for the government of Pakistan to take action anyone who enters Pakistan and creates law and order situation," the Lal Masjid spokesman said.

Chaudhry said that Lal Masjid's decision not to allow him inside the mosque was "surprising" but he vowed that if refused permission to go inside the mosque he would hold the 'fatwa conference' outside the mosque.

"We shouldn't need anyone's permission to enter a mosque. Mosques are supposed to be open for all. Nobody can dictate who comes to the house of Allah. Our stance remains the same and we have support of students from within the mosque," said Chaudhry, who has not set foot in Pakistan after leaving the country with his parents at the age of 4 in 1971.
