The following is the translation of His Holiness Younus AlGohar's speech (video above).
I have been thinking about what transpired a few days ago in Lahore, which is now being labeled as the 'Massacre of Lahore,' where 13 people have lost their lives; another 76 who have bullet wounds are still in the hospital and who knows how many of them will succumb to their injuries. What Nawaz Sharif and Shahbaz Sharif have done is an act of cruelty. But is it the first time it is happening? This is not the first time. It has been going on and on and on and on. The death of thirteen people is not a big figure today, is it? Hundreds of people are dying and they do not know why they are dying. These terrorists who have gathered onto Pakistani soil come from different countries of the world, Uzbekistan, Yemen, and even from England, from Europe and from America the fundamental Muslims, the extremist Muslims - the fanatics - are going and making the tribal areas their abode. They are becoming an army of hatred, an army of oppression, an army of unlawfulness. There is no law at all; no Islamic Law will allow anybody to kill another person in the name of the religion - because God is the supreme judge and in order to establish who is right and who is wrong, God has fixed a day and that day is known as, 'Youm al Deen.' There is a hearing for everybody on that day. When you die, your summons is served; you are going to appear to the court of God. If the Supreme Court of Pakistan, the High Court of Sindh, the High Court of Punjab and the High Court of Baluchistan set you free even when you are a criminal, do not be so happy; because there is another court and that court does not miss a true judgment.
What has happened in Lahore on the 17th of June is utterly deplorable. It is an act of tyranny, cruelty, organised butchery of innocent lives. But I was thinking, those who died, where will they go? Should we call them 'shaheed' (martyrs)? Why should we call them martyrs, because they belong to Minhaj ul Quran? Is it a valid reason to call somebody a martyr because they belong to Minhaj ul Quran or somebody belongs to Mehdi/Messiah Foundation International (MFI), Anjuman Sarfaroshan-e-Islam (ASI) or any other spiritual or religious organisation? Whether or not you are a martyr will depend on why you lost your life. If you lost your life for the cause of a political revolution in your country, this has nothing to do with Islam. It used to be 'Mustafvi Inquilab (Mohammadian Revolution),' but this is not a Mustafvi Inquilab is it? What did they get out of this practice, out of this bloodshed? You are clung to somebody who is not even a saint of God and then, upon his call, you are giving away your precious life and you don't even know what will you end up doing losing your life - for what, for Islam? Groups in Pakistan are waging their own war and they are calling it, 'A war for Islam.' You are a martyr when you sacrifice your life in the way of God, according to the principles of God. If you just waste your life, nobody is going to compensate for what you have done. I feel very sad for these people who lost their lives.
I remember the Lord saying, 'These Ulema in Pakistan gather a lot of young people around them and tell them about Sharia. When they have learnt all Sharia, rather then sending them towards Tariqa, they send them from Sharia towards politics.'
These religious leaders who have no mandate in the public, they use the religion as a tool. When people started liking them and thinking, 'He is a very good scholar,' they used their religious influence on them. Is this how you bring about a revolution in Pakistan? You are talking about a revolution, but in order to bring about a revolution, the Shaoor (intuitive understanding) of every citizen has to be alive. People in your country have no intuitive understanding. They have no intuitive understanding of democracy; they have no intuitive understanding of your religion. They have no intuitive understanding of humanity. They are men but they behave like dogs. Nobody can fix Pakistan. Only Imam Mehdi Gohar Shahi will fix the country. I do not see any revolution for except the Spiritual Revolution that His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi will bring about. I will not be surprised if on 23rd of June, when Tahir ul Qadri arrives at Islamabad Airport, I do not think he will safely make it to Lahore. I very much doubt it.
Look at these people. They were born in the era of His Divine Eminence Imam Mehdi Gohar Shahi, they breathed in the same atmosphere as the Lord has breathed in. The message of the Lord reached their ears and their eyes. They have seen the images of HDG Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi, however, somebody who is claiming to be Ghous us Zaman and Muajidid (Renewer of the Era) deprived them from the blessings of Imam Mehdi Gohar Shahi. I tell you: Shahbaz Sharif, Nawaz Sharif, and Tahir ul Qadri and Minhaj ul Quran party, all are cursed. It doesn't matter how many from this side die or how many from that side die, because you both end up in hellfire.
First, Nawaz Sharif belonged to the Sunni sect of Islam. From a Sunni, he converted to a Wahhabi and joined hands with the Taliban. Now the Pakistan Army has begun an operation (Zarb-e-Asb) without the permission of the government. The current government would never have given permission; the Army is carrying out this operation on their own and this operation will be very beneficial. Imran Khan's party, Tahir ul Qadri, Sheikh Rasheed - all say that the elections were rigged. My question is, whenever elections take place in Pakistan, when are they not rigged? Those who are Jahil (ignorant) cannot become doctors or engineers because they have to do something to prove themselves. Ignorant people go to the Madrassas and some who are a dark horse stay in the Madrassas while those who desire an open arm to luxury and indulgence enter politics. The ministers of all the political parties in Pakistan sitting in the Parliament and Senate are confirmed ignorants and some are educated ignorants. Just imagine what will happen if a gangster is made the Law Minister in a country and the Prime Minister is a traitor?
Musharraf has been put on trial for treason, but Nawaz Sharif stood in front of the Prime Minister of another country and said, 'I do not trust my country's army.' Is there any greater treason than this? The level of ignorance is such that upon hearing this statement, no one has taken a stand or said anything in regards to it. This is because people do not understand anything; they have no intuitive understanding.
If you think that 5 years ago, when the Pakistan Peoples' Party won the election, it was because they received the most votes, that's wrong. If you think Nawaz Sharif was elected because he had the most votes, this is also wrong. People think the electoral system in Pakistan is wrong, but I say there is no electoral system in Pakistan. A system in which there is rigging is no system at all. There were 1300 registered voters in an area and 90,000 votes were counted. Even if we count all the Jussas (sub-spirits) and Lataif (subtleties) of every person, each person would have 17 votes and even then there wouldn't be 90,000 votes. Where did all these votes come from?!
If the heart is ill and the rest of the body is alright, you can treat the heart. If the brain is damaged and the rest of the body is functioning, the brain can be treated. But, if a person's heart, kidneys, liver, brain are all malfunctioning, he is blind and handicapped, how can he be treated? He cannot be treated and this is the case with the Pakistani nation. This nation will have to die; all hell-bound souls will die and only the Momineen (Believers) will remain. God has changed his tactics.
When nations were disobedient to God, God destroyed them. Historians believe God destroyed those nations in one day. God did not destroy those nations in one day; they were destroyed in the same way as Pakistan is being destroyed today.
They died in the same manner. Forty people die here and sometimes a bus goes off a cliff. When a bus doesn't fall off the cliff, people in Hyderabad die from drinking raw alcohol; sometimes an electrical wire falls down and people die. No matter what happens, people are dying. This is the divine wrath. The Pakistani nation is under God's wrath.
The Kuffar (infidels) of Mecca said to Prophet Mohammad, 'God destroyed those who were disobedient to God. If we are Kafir and disobedient, how are we living?' God said to Prophet Mohammad, 'Tell them, this is because you [Prophet Mohammad] are here among them, this is why nothing is happening to them.' As soon as Prophet Mohammad bid farewell to this world, the divine wrath fell upon them. Only Hazrat Ali was next to the body of Prophet Mohammad for three days.
These people are going to bring about the Mustafvi Inquilab (Mohammadian Revolution)? They have been raising slogans of 'Ya Rasool Allah' for 1435 years but they are not reaching Prophet Mohammad. As soon as Prophet Mohammad was leaving this world, the Prophet wished to give some advice to the Companions, but those whose footsteps Muslims claim to follow, such as Omar bin Khattab, said to Prophet Mohammad, 'We no longer need you. The religion is now complete.' Is this not the divine wrath that started as the Prophet was leaving this world? This was just the beginning of the wrath and its culmination is unfolding before our very eyes today. People say the names of Omar bin Khattab and Abu Bakr with great respect, but these people who were close to the Prophet began blaspheming the Prophet and saying that they no longer need him.
God revealed this verse in respect for Prophet Mohammad:
يَـٰٓأَيُّہَا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُواْ لَا تَرۡفَعُوٓاْ أَصۡوَٲتَكُمۡ فَوۡقَ صَوۡتِ ٱلنَّبِىِّ وَلَا تَجۡهَرُواْ لَهُ ۥ بِٱلۡقَوۡلِ كَجَهۡرِ بَعۡضِڪُمۡ لِبَعۡضٍ أَن تَحۡبَطَ أَعۡمَـٰلُكُمۡ وَأَنتُمۡ لَا تَشۡعُرُونَ
When this verse was revealed, the people at the time used to wear wooden shoes which were very noisy. After the revelation of this verse, those who had love for Prophet Mohammad threw away their shoes, so that they do not disturb the Prophet and lose all their good deeds. That was true love and they were the true followers of Prophet Mohammad.
Is this not a curse that instead of Hazrat Ali, somebody else became the leader? But the leaders are a reflection of the nation. If there were more among the Companions who truly loved Prophet Mohammad, then probably Hazrat Ali would have been elected as the leader. Instead, there were people in the inner circle such as Abu Sufyan who had no love or respect for the Prophet Mohammad in their hearts nor did they possess any Divine Light (Noor). They only accepted Islam for their convenience. When such Kafir people increased in numbers, they voted for Abu Bak because [they knew that] if they voted for Ali, it would not be any different than having Prophet Mohammad. Hazrat Ali would have continued the system that Prophet Mohammad started and no particular family or tribe would be powerful over the other. The system of sainthood was introduced to bless the souls of the Momineen and show them the straight path; the rest were hell-bound souls. In the last era, hell-bound souls engaged in opposition of Imam Mehdi. When Imam Mehdi Gohar Shahi was present on Pakistani soil, they were safe from the divine wrath. But as soon as Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi left Pakistani soil, God's wrath fell upon it with all its intensity.
Pakistan is in dire need of a revolution, but what kind of a revolution? Through dishonesty and rigging, people become Prime Minister. The electoral system is corrupt and because the elections were not held in accordance with the Constitution, the government is not legitimate. That's true, however what kind of revolution is Tahir ul Qadri going to bring? Suppose you set the electoral system right, but who was responsible for the corruption in the system in the first place? Did it become corrupt by itself? The system does not need to be corrected, the people need to be corrected. We can blame corruption on the Devil and on our Nafs (Self) or others; however, corruption is in the society, not in the system. If people become good, then the system will automatically be fixed. For God's sake, speak the truth! We need a revolution in our lives.
Revolution is needed in you, not in your country; because when you are revolutionised, when you have become good, you are the unit of society. Reformation of society will begin by one person becoming good.
Now, who will the Taliban implement Sharia upon? Who will they implement God's law upon? Upon those who do not even believe in God? Who in Pakistan truly believes in God and who in Saudi Arabia truly believes in God and Prophet Mohammad? You are in deception. You see people circumambulating the Kaaba and think they are God-loving people? Even before the arrival of Islam, the Kuffar (Infidels) used to circumambulate the Kaaba. If you are good because you circumambulate the Kaaba, then why did they remain Kafir? The land does not need to be revolutionised, it is the people who live on the land that need to be revolutionised.
If Minhaj ul Quran was going to bring about a revolution, 32 years have passed and not one person has experienced a revolution in his life - and you are going to revolutionise the entire nation? People began to follow Tahir ul Qadri in hopes of reaching God, reaching Prophet Mohammad. Nawaz Sharif and Shahbaz Sharif are creating hurdles in bringing about a political revolution in Pakistan. They sent the police to stop you, but what about the Mustafvi Inquilab that you have been bringing about for the last 32 years? Who created hurdles in its way? Therefore, we know that you are not meant to bring about this revolution. Will the Mustafvi Inquilab come about in the Parliament House? No! When Prophet Mohammad enters your heart, your life will be revolutionised. We have only heard slogans for the Mustafvi Inquilab but a revolution is yet to be seen. Why would Prophet Mohammad give the responsibility of bringing about the Mustafvi Inquilab to anybody else when he himself is present in the guise of Imam Mehdi Gohar Shahi?
You speak of bringing about a revolution in the society today. There was a time when people in the society would kill each other over water. They used to bury their daughters, alive, drink alcohol, commit adultery, watch women dance, falsely praise each other, and collect interest, etc. Society at the time was engaged in all such wrongdoings, but when Prophet Mohammad arrived in that society, a revolution came about in a time span of 23 years. Minhaj ul Quran has just been raising slogans for the Mustafvi Inquilab for 32 years. Thirteen members of Minhaj ul Quran were killed in the massacre in Lahore, among them were 2 women. Another 78 were wounded, bringing the total to 91 people and not one amongst them is from the household of Tahir ul Qadri. If you are bringing about a revolution, you should be upfront. But common followers were told to stand out front. Is Tahir ul Qadri not responsible for their death also? Imam Hussain did not bring his extended family upfront first, he sent his children; and not one member from Tahir ul Qadri's family was among those who died. Those who came to obtain the love of Prophet Mohammad were used for his political agenda.
They just raise slogans, but the Mustafvi Inquilab will not come about on the land; rather it will come in the hearts. People asked Tahir ul Qadri about the Mustafvi Inquilab and he said, 'Give me 1 billion people and I will give you Mustafvi Inquilab.' If you are going to bring about a revolution why are you waiting for people? Where is your eminence? If 1 billion people gather, then it is obvious a revolution will come about.
His Divine Eminence Imam Mehdi's rank is so great, but He is in Occultation. His spiritual upbringing is such that His Representative is challenging people: Mustafvi Inquilab can come about in your heart not in 32 years, but in 32 seconds. If this doesn't happen, then you can slit my throat!
Before the reappearance of Imam Mehdi, the revolution that was going to take place has taken place in the form of the Taliban. This is the revolution of hatred. And now will come the revolution of Divine Love. This revolution will not only come about in Pakistan, it will come about in the entire universe; not only amongst Muslims, but all religions will be swept into it. The waves of this revolution will touch the throne of God (Arsh-e-Ilahi). Not even the Devil will be able to stop this revolution, how then will the Pakistani police and clerics stop it?
An imaginary building can be made in a second; while in reality, a building is made by laying brick by brick. Imam Mehdi's revolution is not like a bubble that comes for a minute and then disappears. Imam Mehdi is building the foundation of a revolution brick by brick and that takes time. Today's clerics think they have achieved their target when they get media coverage. Even the lowest and highest breeds of dogs get television coverage. Infidels and hypocrites also get media coverage. This sort of cheap fame is not success.
Success is to settle the name of God in the hearts. How many hearts have you filled with the love of Prophet Mohammad? I am not a political figure nor am I a Prime Minister that I would have any political jealousies, say baseless things or fear losing my position. I am a spiritual man and I can see what is going to unfold.
I can also see what their claims are based upon. I know both Nawaz Sharif and Tahir ul Qadri are dogs of hell. The one killing is rejected by God and the one dying is ill-fated. You are ill-fated in the sense that despite being in the era of Imam Mehdi and hearing the message of Imam Mehdi, you have given your faith into the hands of thieves. If someone is dying after rejecting Imam Mehdi Gohar Shahi, is he dying a Momin?
The current situation of Pakistan is not going to be revived by mere slogans. The ears cannot bear to hear what is transpiring in Pakistan today. There are no ethical values left. The religions are being mocked openly. Fathers are committing adultery with their own daughters and people are selling meat of dead animals. The dead bodies of women are being raped and after all this, people are keeping beards and going to pray in the mosque. What kind of religion is this and what kind of revolution is this? What kind of society and what kind of nation is this? This is the nation of Iblis (Devil).
The revolution that Prophet Mohammad spoke of is, 'O' son of man there is a piece of flesh in your body. When it is set right your entire body is set right and when it is corrupted your entire body is corrupted. Remember well! It is your heart.'
The authenticity of this Hadith (Prophetic Tradition) is verified by the Quran. The Quran states:
مَآ أَصَابَ مِن مُّصِيبَةٍ إِلَّا بِإِذۡنِ ٱللَّهِۗ وَمَن يُؤۡمِنۢ بِٱللَّهِ يَہۡدِ قَلۡبَهُ ۥۚ وَٱللَّهُ بِكُلِّ شَىۡءٍ عَلِيمٌ۬
This Hadith speaks about the revolution within man that connects man to God.
Revolution means something occurs that has never previously occurred in the history of mankind.
If a person had even a single bite of Haraam (prohibited food), his heart could not be initiated. But upon the advent of Imam Mehdi Gohar Shahi, the course of history was changed. His Divine Eminence Gohar Shahi initiated the hearts of those who did not even have a single bite of Halal (permissible food) in them. This is the revolution that has never taken place before nor will it ever happen again. It is now time to wake up from this heedless sleep. The dervish who shall bring about this revolution and turn the soil of Pakistan into Arsh-e-Ilahi has arrived.
