Rawalpindi Police has arrested Mufti Ismail Toru over blasphemy remarks and defending Mufti Aziz ur Rehman, a Lahore-based cleric who sexually abused his student for several years while his sons blackmailed and threatened to kill him if he came public regarding the ordeal.
Mufti Ismail Toru claimed that similar incidents also occurred during the time of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) and defended Mufti Aziz ur Rehman while requesting everyone to support the former JUI leader as he is only human.
اس کرہ ارض پر آپ کو اس قسم کی مخلوق کہیں نہیں ملے گی ۔ میں نے کہا تھا کہ سارے مولوی مفتی صاحب کی حمایت کرتے ہیں اور جو خاموش ہیں ، وہ بھی خاموش رہ کر حمایت کرتے ہیں۔ یہ سُنیے اور ماتم کیجیے۔ مجھے یہ ویڈیو ایک مذہبی رہنما نے بھجوائی ہے۔ pic.twitter.com/So9pBAAlYc
Furthermore, the Rawalpindi-based religious cleric also claimed that Mufti Aziz ur Rehman was drugged in order to make the viral video and those responsible for sharing and exposing the former cleric cannot be good Muslims.
Mufti Ismail Toru was arrested by Rawalpindi Police in Ratta Amral and presented before a judicial magistrate on Tuesday morning and sent to jail on judicial remand.
