Allama Khadim Hussain Rizvi

Life of Allama Khadim Hussain Rizvi

Introduction


Shekh-ul-Hadees Allama Khadim Hussain Rizvi, is the Founder & 1st Ameer of TLP.


Allama Khadim Hussain Rizvi, was born in 1966 in the Pindigheb area of Attock District, Punjab. His brother, Ameer Hussain, is a retired Junior Commissioned Officer (JCO) from Pakistan Army.


Life of Allama Khadim Hussain Rizvi


He started Hifz-e-Quran class in Jhelum. Further, he took admission in Jamia Nizamia, Lahore. He is a Hafiz-e-Quran and Sheikh-ul-Hadees. 


He delivered Friday sermons at Lahore's Pir Makki Masjid while in the Punjab Auqaf and Religious Affairs Department. 


He then kicked the Auqaf job when he was asked not to talk on Namoos-e-Risalat ﷺ and Khatm-e-Nabuwwat ﷺ. He was very firm on this stance from the very beginning.


He was fluent in Urdu, Punjabi, Arabic and Persian, he was known for his speeches in the defense of Namoos-e-Risalat ﷺ and Khatm-e-Nabuwwat ﷺ, and apart from the Quran and Hadees, he was very much loved for heavily quoting the poetry of Alahazrat Imam Ahmed Raza Khan Barelvi and Allama Muhammad Iqbal, whom he considered to be his main influences. 


He was called"Ameer-ul-Mujahideen" for all his hardwork and sacrifices for Namoos-e-Risalat ﷺ and Khatm-e-Nabuwwat ﷺ.


He was also called "Baba Jee", "Ustaad Sahab" and "Rizvi Sahab" in love by his lovers and followers.


He has been confined to a wheelchair since 2006 ever since an accident near Gujranwala as the driver of his vehicle fell asleep while driving from Rawalpindi to Lahore. But he never made this disability his weakness, instead he made this his strength and continued Islamic work with more pace.


In 2017, he founded a political party called Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan, a political front for Tehreek Labbaik Ya Rasool Allah (TLYR). 


TLP came into existence after the hanging of Ghazi Mumtaz Husain Qadri R.A, who assassinated the Blasphemer Salmaan Taseer, the Governor of Punjab, for opposing the blasphemy laws and saying bad words for blasphemy laws. 


During the assassination of the Governor, Allama Khadim Hussain Rizvi was serving as an auqaf official in the Punjab government. Allama Khadim Hussain Rizvi had rightly justified the assassination of blasphemer Salman Taseer on the pretext that Taseer had termed the blasphemy law as a "black law". 


He was served warning notices from auqaf to cease and desist from spreading his views in favour of blasphemy laws, but he refused and kicked the Auqaf job when he was asked not to talk on Namoos-e-Risalat ﷺ and Khatm-e-Nabuwwat ﷺ. He was very firm on this stance from the very beginning.


After leaving his auqaf job, Allama Khadim Hussain Rizvi, had more opportunity to preach his views on Namoos-e-Risalat  ﷺ and Khatm-e-Nabuwwat ﷺ. 


He travelled across the country city-to-city and street-to-street to build support for Section 295-C of the Pakistan Penal Code, which deals with blasphemy law, if committed against Holy Prophet ﷺ. 


He also spoke out for the release of Ghazi Mumtaz Hussain Qadri R.A, his persistent advocacy earned him the nickname of "Blasphemy Activist" & “Namoos-e-Risalat ﷺ ka Chowkidar” in religious circles.


2017 Faizabad sit-in


On 6 November 2017, Allama Khadim Hussain Rizvi organized a long march from Lahore to Islamabad to press for the resignation of the Law Minister Mr. Zahid Hamid regarding an ill-motive change against Khatm-e-Nabuwwat ﷺ and favouring Qadyanis, in bill of "2017 Election of Pakistan".


Due to his sincerity for the cause of Khatm-e-Nabuwwat ﷺ , Allama Khadim Hussain Rizvi soon began receiving support from public, other religious political parties and other segments of society, making way for mushroom growth of protests nationwide.


The general public took the same demand of resignation of the Law Minister to the streets nationwide. 


Thereafter, total shutdown began, and the government ultimately responded with a forced shutdown of all news channels, followed by blocking social media networks, to contain the situation and the flow of information. 


This created mayhem and confusion all over Pakistan. Finally, by late evening the army chief intervened and asked "both sides" to show restraint.


Finally their objective was achieved and the law minister stepped down on 27 November 2017 culminating in an end to the peaceful protests that continued for 20 days without harm until government started using force against peaceful citizens, despite of all the warnings given out by various religious groups about the sensitivity of the matter. 


TLP and Allama Khadim Hussain Rizvi (backlink on main page khadim Rizvi ) both were so much appreciated by every Pakistani on this great achievement.


2018 Removal of Abdus Salam Qadiani Name for Department of Physics and removal of Chairs from QAU


Tehreek Labbaik Pakistan TLP demanded to remove Abus Salam Qadiani chairs from Quaid-i-Azam University (QAU) and to rename the department of physics at the Quaid-i-Azam University (QAU) from Abdus Salam Qadiani as the “Al-Khazini Department”, after Byzantine-origin astronomer Abu al-Fath Abd al-Rahman Mansur al-Khazini.


The physics department had been named after Abdus Salam Qadiani in December 2016 following the approval of then prime minister Nawaz Sharif.


After strong objection raised by Tehreek Labbaik Pakistan TLP, on thursday May 3 2018, the resolution was tabled in National Assembly to rename the department of physics at the Quaid-i-Azam University (QAU) from Abdus Salam Qadiani as the “Al-Khazini Department”, after Byzantine-origin astronomer Abu al-Fath Abd al-Rahman Mansur al-Khazini.


Everyone Pakistani from all walks of life appreciated this hardwork and achievement of Tehreek Labbaik Pakistan TLP to strengthen the work of Khatm-e-Nabuwwat ﷺ in Pakistan.


2018 Long March to shut down Dutch Embassy


On 29 August 2018, Tehreek Labbaik Pakistan TLP announced to begin a long march to shut down Dutch embassy. 


This long arch was announced in response to blasphemous cartoon caricatures contest announced by dutch blasphemer Geert Wielders. Allama Khadim Hussain Rizvi gave fatwa to kill blasphemer Geert Wilders and announced a long march from Lahore to Islamabad to shut down Dutch embassy.


TLP demanded that the Pakistan government cease all diplomatic relationships with the Netherlands as a protest to the planned anti-Islam caricatures contest. 


TLP's long march started from the shrine of the great saint Hazrat Usman bin Ali Hajjveri (Data Sahab) in Lahore and its destination was to be the Dutch embassy in Pakistan’s capital city of Islamabad.


As soon as the TLP march reached Islamabad, Dutch anti-Islam lawmaker Geert Wilders cancelled the blasphemous cartoon competition.


The dutch blasphemer also demanded Imran Khan to arrest Allama Khadim Hussain Rizvi for this defeat, to which Imran Khan responded and later in November 23 2018, Allama Khadim Hussain was arrested along with other TLP leaders and more than 40 thousand peaceful TLP workers and then subsequently released on bail in May 2019 after almost 7 long months.


2018 Atif Mian Qadiani Removal from Economic Advisory Council


PTI government appointed Atif Mian Qadiani as a member of Economic Advisory Council (EAC) led by Prime Minister Imran Khan, which was against the Pakistani laws as no Qadiani can hold any big office responsibility.


Tehreek Labbaik Pakistan TLP opposed this appointment and demanded to remove Atif Mian Qadiani from this position immediately.


On the other hand, Information and Broadcasting Minister of that time, Fawad Chaudhry has come forth defending government's decision of appointing Atif R Mian in PM Imran's Economic Advisory Council.


Fawad Chaudhry is renounced for his role in every anti-Islamic policy made by government. But TLP continued their peaceful protest to remove Aif Mian Qadiani as per Pakistani law.


On Friday September 7 2018, Within 3 days of appointment, government asked Atif Mian Qadiani to step down from the Prime Minister Imran Khan-led Economic Advisory Council (EAC).


Everyone Pakistani from all walks of life appreciated this hardwork and achievement of Tehreek Labbaik Pakistan TLP to strengthen the work of Khatm-e-Nabuwwat ﷺ in Pakistan.


2018 Asia Bibi protests


On 31 October 2018, after eight years of detention and conviction by all the lower courts and High Court, a Pakistani christian woman, blasphemer asia maloona, who was convicted of blasphemy, was shockingly set free by Supreme Court's judge Justice Asif Saeed Khosa against convictions of all courts. 


This judgment of Justice Asif Saeed Khosa was against Islamic teachings and was against Islamic history.


This false judgment was entirely made to make western countries and Qadyanis happy. But this prompted the TLP, under the supreme and fearless leadership of Allama Khadim Hussain Rizvi to initiate peaceful demonstrations in Karachi, Lahore, Peshawar and Multan. 


The Red Zone in the capital, Islamabad, where the Supreme Court is located, was sealed off by the police which created problems for the general public. 


In public speeches, Allama Khadim Hussain Rizvi demanded that blasphemer asia maloona should be subjected to the punishment for blasphemy under Pakistan's penal code. He was quoted as saying, "Our sit-in will go on until the government accepts our demand". 


Arrest of Allama Khadim Hussain Rizvi

Allama Khadim Hussain Rizvi was arrested on 23 November 2018 along with other TLP leaders and more than 40 thousand peaceful TLP workers. 


The only crime for which he was arrested was to protest peacefully against the acquittal of blasphemer asia maloona. Many people also thinks that he was arrested also because he did a long march against dutch blasphemer Geert Wilders to shutdown dutch embassy. 


The dutch blasphemer called of the blasphemous cartoon contest and demanded Imran Khan to arrest Allama Khadim Hussain Rizvi for this defeat, to which Imran Khan responded and later in November 23 2018 arrested him and all TLP leadership, then subsequently released on bail in May 2019 after almost 7 long months.


Ban on Controversial Anti-Islam Film Zindagi Tamasha


In 2020, Rizvi promoted protests on the release of the controversial Pakistani film Zindagi Tamasha. The film-maker Sarmad Khoosat committed blasphemy in film. The material was blasphemous ehich also includes criticism of Islamic scholars and an alleged reference to bacha bazi on a Naat Khuwan. 


Allama Khadim Hussain Rizvi announced Nationwide peaceful rallies on Friday, but Sarmad Khosat withdrawn his controversial film from releasing. In response, TLP also called off all the rallies.


Faizabad sit-in to shut down French Embassy


In Mid-2020, Charlie Hebdo blasphemous magazine published blasphemous cartoons in their filthy magazine. 


The bastard French President Emmanuel Macron, instead of stopping these cartoon publications, being his responsibility as Fench President, but instead he defended the decision by Charlie Hebdo magazine to re-publish blasphemous caricatures, saying “we have freedom of expression and freedom of belief”.


The bastard French President Emmanuel Macron didn’t stopped there, he crossed all the limits and showed those blasphemous cartoons on government buildings.


All these blasphemous crimes showed the real face of Zionists to the world. Every Muslim was hurt, Millions of Muslims came to street to protest against blasphemer bastard French President Emmanuel Macron, from Pakistan to Lebanon to the Palestinian territories, poured out of prayer services to join anti-France protests on Friday.


Tehreek Labbaik Pakistan TLP as always being the most prominent and strong voice in defense of Namoos-e-Risalat ﷺ, came in front and asked the Muslims of France to kill this blasphemer bastard French President Emmanuel Macron, and also demanded all Muslims to boycott French products.


Tehreek Labbaik Pakistan TLP also demanded Pakistani government to End all ties with France and ban all trade with france on government level.


After giving multiple warnings and deadlines to the government, Allama Khadim Hussain Rizvi announced a long march from Rawalpindi to Faizabad in Islamabad on November 15 2020.


Soon after the announcement of long march, PTI government carried a worst crackdown against TLP leadership and TLP workers. 


Police raid the house of Allama Khadim Hussain Rizvi, broke the door and libraries just like they did in 2018, after Asia Maloona acquittal protests.


Thousands of peaceful TLP workers were arrested from their home all over the country, just to stop them from exercising their basic right of peaceful protest.


But despite using all the state machinery against TLP, On Sunday 15 November 2020, hundreds of thousands TLP protesters peacefully marched from Rawalpindi to Faizabad in Islamabad. 


The Islamabad authorities and police fired heavy shelling of tear gas on peaceful TLP protestors, resulting dozens of injured and some seriously injured.


Government also announced blackout of cellular services, internet, and closure of all routes with blockades and containers, pushing the locals of the federal capital Islamabad and its twin city Rawalpindi into a complete choked situation. 


All these senseless steps taken by PTI government to stop peaceful TLP protestors to use their right of peaceful protest was condemned by every Pakistani.


Despite all the blockades and containers, hundreds of thousands of TLP supporters peacefully reached Faizabad and then staged it at the main entry point, the Faizabad interchange that connects Islamabad and Rawalpindi, demanding removal of the French Ambassador in Islamabad in protest against the blasphemer bastard French President Emmanuel Macron, who not only justified making of blasphemous caricatures but also showed them on French government buildings.


TLP was demanding expulsion of the French ambassador, boycott of French products, release of its arrested workers and no case registration against the TLP leadership.


On November 16 2020, Allama Khadim Hussain Rizvi and TLP leadership announced the end to the protest sit-in, staged at the Faizabad interchange, as the government had accepted all of their four demands.


The government negotiation team led by Minister of Religious Affairs Pir Noorul Qadri, Interior Minister Ijaz Shah and Deputy Commissioner Islamabad, negotiated with the TLP leadership.


As per the written agreement signed between the TLP leadership and the government team, it has been agreed that the government will remove the French ambassador through legislation from the Parliament within three months and will not appoint its Ambassador to France.


Hundreds of thousands of TLP supporters took part in the anti-France rally and sit-in.


After the TLP leadership announced the end to the protest sit-in, staged at the Faizabad interchange, saying that the government had accepted all of its four demands, all peaceful TLP workers dispersed peacefully.


This clearly showed TLP had never any political intentions behind these struggle, and they always stood firm only for the dignity of Holy Prophet ﷺ
