ISLAMABAD: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Central Information Secretary Fauzia Wahab ‘revealed’ that there was no constitution in the era ruled by Hazrat Omar (R.A), as there was only Holy Quran.

Talking to a private TV channel in a program convened on the immunity enjoyed by President Asif Ali Zardari, she added that the then court subpoenaed Hazrat Omar for having no constitution; but, today’s judiciary could not call President Asif Ali Zardari thanks to the presence of the Constitution now.

She said that President Asif Zardari had the immunity in accordance with the International Convention and no case could be reopened against him.

The Central Information Secretary said that the ministers of PPP in the meeting showed their solidarity with President Asif Ali Zardari.

The other participants including Ansar Abbasi and Ahsan Iqbal lambasted the statement by Wahab and held it in conflict with the Islamic teaching.

Ansar Abbasi said the PPP leader hurt the sentiments of the Muslim, adding the Supreme Court (SC) annulled the immunity wielded by Former President Gen (rtd) Pervez Musharraf under Article-248 of the Constitution in its verdict regarding the reinstatement of Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Iftikhar Muhammed Chaudhry on July 20, 2007 and in a detailed verdict in December 2009.

During hearing of this case, former president of Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) Aitezaz Ahsan said if Hazrat Omar could be called and Hamid Khan reinforced by saying he could appear 11 times before court, how come Musharraf could have this indemnity.

Responding this point, Fauzia wahab said, ‘There was no Constitution in his (Omar’s) time. Only, there was the Holy Quran,’ addressing the participants to accordingly refrain from citing his (Omar’s) incident as an example in this era.

Wahab added, ‘President Zardari is not an ordinary citizen, as immunities are given to him. If he is not accorded the immunities, he cannot function.’

Ahsan Iqbal said Hazrat Omar made appearance before court, the very fact told that there was Islamic jurisprudence then, as it existed in every era, adding that even today, Britain has no written constitution; they have a Jurisprudence and conduct themselves in accordance with it.

    When she says about the omar (R. A) that at the time of hazrat omar there wasn’t any constitution. and shows the importance of the Worst Brigand of the century, she must be criticized as much as the cartoonists of the holy prophet (S. A. W. W) were criticized.

    But alas! she has been covered under PPP umbrella. PPP should be ashamed of her.
