Mufti Naeem issued the above statement in response to Pervez Rasheed’s derogatory remarks about Madaris (Religious Schools).
Pervez Rasheed, while addressing a ceremony in Karachi Arts Council, declared Madaris as the ‘Factory of Ignorance’. He was drawing a comparison between the modern and ancient way of providing education. In his ironic speech, Pervez Rasheed also ridiculed the concepts of Islam after death.
Religious scholars strongly criticized the speech of Pervez Rasheed.
While talking to ARY News, Mufti Naeem said Pervez Rasheed’s remarks were blasphemous. He demanded government to arrest him and to take action against him.
