Renowned Zakir-e-Ahl-e-Bait (AS) Allama Asif Raza Alvi was arrested in Gujranwala while he was speaking at a Majlis-e-Aza in Gujranwala.
Shiite News Correspondent reported from Punjab province’s Gujranwala district that police held him and took him away with them. He was accused of narrating truth about tyrannies and despotism of dynastic rulers of Umayyad who seized power bringing an end to the Caliphate that began with the rule of Hazrat Abu Bakar.
Yazid was second dynastic ruler of Umayyad dynasty that was started with the rule of Muavia son of Abu Sufyan. Muavia had imposed war on the caliphate of Hazrat Ali (AS) who was fourth and last caliph of the reign of Khilafat-e-Rashida that Sunni Muslims believe rules of guided and pious over Muslim world.
Syed Abul Ala Moudoodi, founder of Jamaat-e-Islami and another Deobandi politician of Indian Congress party Abul Kalam Azad had criticized the dynastic kings like rule. They declared them monarchy/kingdom instead of Caliphate.
Shia parties and leaders have condemned the arrest of Allama Asif Alvi. They said that Umayyad dynasty is respected by Yazidi takfiri nasbi fanatics and terrorists hence they pressurized the police to arrest the Shia scholar who was narrating the historical facts that were also documented and written in Islamic historians and thinkers books
