Until a few years ago, nothing was more known about the religious movement Tehreek-e-Libek or the founder of the Prophet, Khadim Hussain Rizvi. The Supreme Court in March of this year even complained to the intelligence agency ISI about why they did not have information about Kadam Hussain about where he was coming from, where he was living. , Doing business or running a few.
Beginning of Khadim Hussain Rizvi
The 52-year-old Khatib of a mosque in Lahore gained fame in November 2017 at Faizabad Chowk in Islamabad by giving a long but seemingly successful sit-in against the blasphemy law amendment. Earlier, he was also very active in the death sentence of Mumtaz Qadri, the assassin of Governor Punjab Salman Taseer, and from there he gave his religious activities the color of politics.
Barelvi-minded Khadim Hussain Rizvi was dismissed from the Punjab department for speaking out in favor of Mumtaz Qadri. I was surprised by the 7,000 votes in the by-election.
Observers say that since the execution of Mumtaz Qadri, the Bareilly class has taken a more active political role. But the rise of sectarian violence in Pakistan and the Barelvi Deobandi conflict has been witnessing since 2012.
Khadim Hussain Rizvi was also supported by the Sunni movement during last year’s protest.
What support do they have?
The impression of former Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi’s stay in Faizabad was that in the meantime the protesters had the support of the Pakistan Army in some way. The distribution of funds among the protesters is seen in this context at the end of the protests.
The military has been denying that support, but now who is behind the protests across the country in the Asiya Bibi conflict and who has the support of the Tehrik-e-Insaf, the question is being asked again.
However, observers think in the past, whether they have any backing or not, this time they have taken to the streets in a particular conservative section of society to see their popularity.
Now the kind of language he and other senior leaders of the movement use against the military and the judiciary seems to have over-relied on their power.
Despite being confined to a wheelchair, Khadim Hussain Rizvi has emerged as a major supporter of the controversial law of blasphemy in Pakistan. He also disagrees with allegations of abuse of the law. Their style statement is quite strict. The solution for not getting coverage from the Pakistani media has apparently been to make full use of social media. Not only are their websites now available in Urdu and English but there are several accounts on social media. They call themselves the ‘watchmen’ of the Prophet Islam.
Where is Kadam Hussain Rizvi?
A spokesman for the movement, Ijaz Ashrafi, said that Kadam Hussain Rizvi belonged to Attock district of Punjab. Apart from being a Hafiz Qur’an, he is also a Shaykh-ul-Hadith and has mastery of the Persian language. His two sons also participated in various protests. Khadim Hussain was disabled in a traffic accident and cannot walk without support.
He was born on 22 June 1966 in Haji Lal Khan in Attock district of Nakhi Toot. After graduating from the religious seminaries of Jhelum and Dinah, he completed the teaching system at Jamia Nizamiya Rizvi in Lahore. They also have several cases of various types. Ijaz Ashrafi said he did not remember the number of cases. But they have not been arrested since the beginning of the movement. Probably because of their ‘street power’.
In January 2017, he organized a rally in Lahore in favor of blasphemy law, which was charged by police with a stick. They were arrested and sent to jail and they are still kept in the Fourth Schedule by the Punjab Government which means they have to keep the police informed about their movements. Khadim Hussain Rizvi is proud of his high-ranking counterparts and subordinates, an ISI report says.
What are the financial resources of the Movement Lipstick?
It is not clear where Khadim Hussain Rizvi gets the resources for his activities, but during his stay in Islamabad, he announced that unknown persons were giving millions of rupees to them. At the end of an article on the Internet about them, a man from Australia is asking for his address and bank account so he can send them money. In addition, the WhatsApp is circulating a message with a phone number stating that if a worker needs a facility such as mobile balance, money or food during the protest, send a message to that number. It appears that he receives funding from both at home and abroad.
According to a report submitted by ISI to the court after the sit-in last year, Kadam Rizvi has been ‘involved in financial corruption, and his reputation is poor’. The report states that there have been rumors of financial support in a systematic way of the sit-in, and that the sitters were well-received by some people, including local scholars and donors. According to the report, ‘the police were neither capable nor unwilling to stop the logistical support provided to the occupants.
Statement of Servant Rizvi’s Style
Khadim Hussain Rizvi’s warm speech shows that he is quite impressed with his power. His followers keep wailing, even blinding their abusers and abusers. His criticism was not just for sovereignty, but for the late Abdul Sattar Edhi.
Some of the videos on his social media went viral only because people could only laugh at the kind of tips he offers to rid the country of debt. He has been addressing journalists and secret agency personnel in a very strenuous way. Then they make claims that might be impossible to put into practice. One such statement he made in Karachi was that “If they had an atom bomb, they would have completely destroyed Holland before they even made a cartoon contest.”
The kind of stern and anti-state speeches he has made in Lahore in recent days, if there is no action against them, puts him at risk of becoming more ‘fearless and fearless’. To cope with this, Ball is once again in the court of the government.
