Mufti Muhammad Taqi Usmani calls upon politicians to exercise restraint, avoid ‘foul’ language

Prominent religious scholar Mufti Muhammad Taqi Usmani on Monday expressed shock at the intense war of words "devoid of any restraint” between the mainstream political parties, saying "it is frightening to imagine the extent to which Islamic rules and values are being violated in political disputes.”

The remarks from the noted scholar come in the wake of mud-slinging between the opposition — primarily the PPP and the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), which is an alliance of other opposition parties — and the ruling PTI after the former submitted no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan.

Since then, the two sides have been trading barbs in their respective public meetings, with one widely-discussed instance of the prime minister calling PDM chief and JUI-F head Maulana Fazlur Rehman as "diesel” and the leading opposition trio — Asif Ali Zardari, Shehbaz Sharif and Maulana Fazl — as "the three stooges”.

He said criticism is based on arguments and not on foul language.

"Please think about where we are going,” the Mufti said.
