By Malik Omaid

Malik Ishaq, leader of banned Lashkar-e-Jhangvi has been killed with his two sons and aides on Tuesday night in a police encounter. This news broke on Wednesday morning when the TV channels started reporting it. As expected reactions on social media including twitter started pouring in and where there was much jubilation especially in the Shia twitteraties there was much skepticism on the way Malik Ishaq has been killed. Though police claimed that  “Gunmen attacked a police convoy and freed him as he was being moved” which led to a shootout near Muzafargarh at Shahwala but many analysts are suspicious that this is a planned extrajudicial killing and there was much talk about the backlash and its future impacts.

The News and Jubilation:

 

Although they were happy to the fact that Malik Ishaq, the notorious Shia Killer and terrorist was killed but many Human Rights activists also shared their contempt to the way he was killed. The thing is extra judicial killings no matter how much look pleasant and welcoming they have grave and lasting consequences on the society. An alleged extra judicial killing of Malik Ishaq is not a victory of Law and order but in fact an acceptance that rule of law has failed yet again.

 

As a counter argument Yasser Latif Hamdani wrote on facebook:

Malik Ishaq being called for negotiating with terrorists during 2009’s GHQ attack was also talked upon twitter.

To which Muhammad Taqi added;

To which Asad Munir responded;

Analysis and Backlash:

And yes there is a trend going on in support of ASWJ as predicted by Salman Sikander in his tweet.

    Killing one black-forehead guy who was disobedient to the pak state/army does not mean that muslims have given up the islamic command and goal of exterminating non-muslims and of imposing arab imperialism on mankind.

    The worst of islam is yet to come. As yet you have seen nothing. The worst is gripping us all.

    you cannot escape the fact that islam and muslims have done and are going to do evil things by pointing to the jews.
    the jews have not done as much wrong and evil as have the agents and quislings of islam.
    How long will you muslims pretend to be noble and innocent? How long will you take to demagogy and deceit about this?

    Hazrat Maulana Malik Ishaq Shaheed (Lashkar-e-Jhangvi) was originally a Sahabi of Hazrat Maulana Haq Nawaz Jhangvi (Sipah-e-Sahaba). However, later on, due to some minor doctrinal differences between the Sahaba, this particular Sahabi founded a separate Organization under the name of “Lashkar-e-Jhangvi”. It is immensely disappointing to note that in spite of being an Islamic Republic, the state has till now, not declared that it is conferring the Nishan-e-Haider upon Hazrat Maulana Malik Ishaq Shaheed.
    .
    From 1996 till this day, Lashkar-e-Jhangvi has continuously waged a sacred effort against all “kafir elements” including the Kuffar in the Pakistan Army. Hazrat Maulana Malik Ishaq Shaheed was personally responsible for the “deep cleansing” of our “society”. He purified this country of hundreds and thus also reducing the population pressure on the economy of our Islamic Republic. In 1999, he scared the BLPM (beard-less prime minister) Nawaz Sharif. Due to Satan’s personal intervention, the “beardless” PM managed to survive. Eight years later, the “Maulana Shaheed”, however, finally went after another BLPM (beard-less prime minister) Benazir Bhutto.

    .
    It is most unfortunate that the Media of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan has not once mentioned Hazrat Maulana Malik Ishaq as “Shaheed”, while they keep on announcing: “aaj Pak Fauj ke jawan shaheed ho gaye”. The La-deen Media has the audacity to make such announcements in spite of the historic fatwa issued by Hazrat Maulana Munawwar Hassan (former Amir Jamaat-i-Islami) who clearly declared:
    .

    All Mujdeens (TTP, LeJ, JuD etc), killed while fighting against the Pakistan Army are Shaheeds, while all Pakistan Army personnel killed while fighting against the Mujdeens (TTP, LeJ, JuD etc) are ordinary Maqtools. [Fatwa by former Amir Jamaat-i-Islami]

    .
    All Parliament certified Muslims of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, certified in accordance with the inspired and eternal 2nd Amendment, call upon the Government of Pakistan to confer upon Hazrat Maulana Malik Ishaq Shaheed the Nishan-e-Haider and also call upon the entire La-deen Media of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan to mention the shaheed, henceforth, in the news as a “Shaheed”.
