Masjid-E-Ghosia mosque in Bolton have been using the Islamic doctrine of taqiyya ( lying to non Muslims for the benefit of Islam) over the planned appearance of a radical hate preacher at the mosque on December 24 th. Extremist cleric Syed Muzaffar Shah Qadri, has been banned from preaching in his native Pakistan for allegedly celebrating the murder of a popular politician was advertised as guest speaker at the Bolton mosque.
Syed Muzaffar Shah Qadri, who has been dubbed a “firebrand” by Pakistani authorities, is due to speak at a number of British mosques in a series of heavily promoted events, despite being prohibited from speaking in his own country.
Posters advertising the hate preacher were circulated on social media, including from the mosques own official Twitter account. Yet the mosque went into denial mode once the hate preachers tour was reported in the national media.
The mosque claimed it was somebody being malicious against them circulating false rumours yet their own twitter post shown above shows this claim is lies.
Bashir Sharma, of the mosque,told Bolton News
: “It’s not true. There was a rumour he was coming, but he’s definitely not coming.
“We have Munawwar Ateeq coming from Birmingham instead.
“We have sent our own posters out, so I don’t know what’s happened there.
“We haven’t done the poster with Mr Qadri’s name, so I’m expecting it was probably malicious.”
Mr Qadri’s has made headlines in the UK and in Pakistan.
He was quoted in the case of Tanveer Ahmed, the Bradford taxi driver who in March stabbed to death Glasgow shopkeeper Asad Shah for posting an Easter greeting to Christians.
Spokesmen from two other mosques in Bolton both said “I have never heard of him” when asked about the cleric.
Malicious, never heard of him……….thats funny as here is the hate preacher on his previous visits to Bolton
