Mufti Taqi Usmani urges court to review its decision to demolish Madina Masjid

Mufti Taqi Usmani urges the court to review the decision to demolish Madina Masjid situated at Karachi’s Tariq Road.

Mufti Usmani who severed on the Federal Shariat Court from 1981 to 1982 and also pioneered the concept of Islamic banking in Pakistan in a tweet said, “The order to demolish the Madina Mosque on Tariq Road and make it a park is absolutely unjustified. This mosque on Tariq Road has been established for about 25 years and is inhabited by worshipers.”

“It is incomprehensible that such a mosque should be ordered to be demolished without first hearing the people living in the neighbourhood. The court itself should review the orders immediately,” he said.
