Rana Sanaullah knows what Islam is all about. He knows that if Muslims believe that he has offended Islam, he could be killed, even by those who are supposed to be protecting him. So he has requested a non-Muslim security detail. If a politician did that in the West, he would be excoriated as an “Islamophobe.”
Remember that last February in the Netherlands, a Muslim security agent was suspended: he was accused of leaking details of Geert Wilders’ locations to a jihad group. But why was he on Wilders’ security team in the first place? Because it would have been islamophobic to keep him off. That is just one example of the suicidal policies regarding Islam that Western countries are wholeheartedly embracing, heedless of the obvious consequences that are most certainly coming.
A Pakistani Minister has been forced to conduct a shake-up of his security detail after threats by Islamists. Pakistan’s provincial law Minister, Rana Sanaullah has ordered that only non-Muslim officers be deployed for his security.
Pakistan’s intelligence agencies have started conducting background checks on all his security detail and also asked the Minister to restrict his movements. However, sources close to the Minister say that he is not satisfied with the background checks and has already hired a private security firm to take care of the security arrangements.
The Minister has also requested the Police chief to get him a list of all Christian, Hindu and Ahmadi officers in the province of Punjab. Reportedly his present Police escort will be replaced by non-Muslim officers who will be selected from the compiled list. Till then the Minister will use the private security firm which employees Christian security guards.
Minister Sanaullah hit the headlines a few weeks back when during a TV interview he claimed there were minor differences between Muslims and Ahmadis, a minority Islamic sect considered heretic by the majority of Muslims. The statement sparked outrage among the country’s conservative Muslims with many calling for his resignation. The statement came at a time when the Islamist political parties alleged that the government was trying to appease the minority Ahmadis by changing electoral laws in their favor.
In response, the radical Islamist group Tehreek Labaik Ya Rasool Allah has organized countrywide protests and over three thousand of their protestors are currently blocking the capital Islamabad, demanding the resignation of Punjab’s Law Minister Rana Sanaullah and Federal Law Minister Zahid Hamid.
In 2011, Punjab’s Governor Salman Taseer was killed by his own police guard over his opposition to blasphemy laws.
