Rumi in the ‘Jang’ newspaper

Readers will recall how the anti-Ahmadiyya writer using the name “Pleezing One” claimed that he was ready to reject the writings of Rumi, if we presented them in reply to his allegations against Hazrat Mirza sahib. For that discussion please see this link.

There was an article in the Urdu Daily Jang, in the London edition (28 February 2008, p. 4), in which the writer, Dr Safdar Mehmood, quoted an anecdote from Rumi’s Mathnawi. His first paragraph shows how highly Rumi is regarded. The point of the article is also of interest. Please read it here as a pdf file.

(Note: The first page of the pdf file shows columns 1 and 2 of the article, side by side. The second page shows columns 3 and 4, side by side. Please observe this order when reading.)

    From Rashid Jahangiri:

    I wish the author of Urdu article Dr Safdar Mehmood also finds courage to condemn the sham trial and travesty of justice when the highest court/institution of the land i.e. Pakistan National Assembly instead of holding debate rubber stamped the then Prime Minister Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto decision and declared the reciters of Kalima-Tayyab i.e. The Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement members as Kaffir. Calling reciter of Kalima-Tayyab as Kaffir is worse crime than killing him.
