The Murder of Democracy ...

Minhaj-ul-Quran International is in a seven-day mourning after the heinous assassination of Benazir Bhutto. All activities and programs will remain shut down for seven days.

I remember the time when Sheikh-ul-Islam, Professor Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri, was active in field politics. He had joined hands with Benazir Bhutto against the horrendous exploitation by the regime of that time. He would refer to her as "my sister". Now that she has been assassinated, he has dubbed her murder as "the murder of democracy".

This is a terrible tragedy at all levels. Let us pray to Almighty Allah to grant her a place in Heaven and to give her orphaned children the patience to bear the loss of their mother.
