Some newspapers have published the story, alleging that the Canadian police have called Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri for breeching his oath of political asylum. A letter has also been shown, which says that citizenship of one Abdul Shakoor aka Tahir-ul-Qadri, who is a resident of 62—– Toronto, has been suspended and he has been directed to re-apply.

What is the reality of this letter? Self-explanatory fallacies expose the reality and authenticity of this letter. The date on which the letter was issued is unbelievable. The fact that the letter was issued on December 4 shows that the one who issued it knew very well that Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri was in Pakistan at that time. The fact remains that Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri reached Pakistan on December 19 or 20 and addressed a mammoth public gathering on December 23 in Lahore.

The second blunder in the letter is the name of Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri. I have not seen any letter written or issued by any government, which says that Mubashar Luqman who is nicknamed as Pupoo is being served a notice. Even the government of Pakistan does not issue such notices. If such a letter does not come from NADRA or passport office, how come it was sent by the Canadian government? The letter was written on December 4. I tried my level best to contact the office whose address was given on the letter. I have neither found the address nor came across the man called Wilson.

The letter mentions the address 62……..Toronto. If you go to this address, you would meet the owner of the place named ……….He has been living in this house with his family since 1969 when he bought it. He never rented out this house to anyone.

As for as the matter of political asylum of Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri is concerned, according to the newspaper, the Canadian government approved his case on October 2, 2009 and granted him Canadian citizenship and passport six month ago in 2012. I have original immigration papers of Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri with me. According to these papers, the Canadian government gave him citizenship on March 31, 1999. The names of his family members have been given here. The name of Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri has been mentioned as religious leader. Dr Qadri was issued Canadian passport in 2005. He got his passport when he went to Canada after resigning from his seat in National Assembly. According to immigration papers, the reason of his getting nationality is not political asylum.

It has been written in the letter and newspapers that Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri has been living in Canada by the name of Abdul Shakoor. Is Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri a less known man that he had been living in Canada with a changed name and no one knew about it? Did UK’s Prime Minister David Cameron, Secretary General of OIC and the Secretary General of UNO pay tributes to Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri without knowing his real name? World Economic Forum published its annual report and listed the names of the participants including the name of Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri.

Then there is a treatise on world religions that is part of a text book in the US. It shows two faces of Islam; one is the version of Islam presented by the hardliners and extremists and other is tolerant, humane and moderate face of Islam presented by Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri. He has condemned terrorism and issued religious decrees against it. The name given in the US text book is that of Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri, not of Abdul Shakoor.
