Formally known as the REPORT of THE COURT OF INQUIRY constituted under PUNJAB ACT II OF 1954 to enquire into the PUNJAB DISTURBANCES OF 1953, this report is commonly referred to as the Munir Commission Report. Munir Commission Report_1953
This high-powered Investigative Commission exhaustively analyzed the Islamists’ demands, based on written testimony and cross examination, of dozens of so-called scholars. Topics like the ideology for the establishment of an Islamic State, its foundations, essentials requirements, sovereignty and democracy, legislature and legislation, minority rights in Islamic State and the corresponding rights of Muslims in non-Muslim countries, jihad, apostasy, etc. are all exhaustively examined. This report holds the key to refute the Islamist propaganda that is fueling terrorism and radicalism among Muslims around the world. Al-Qaida, Taliban and other Islamist groups are striving to establish this mythical Islamic State.
The Munir Commission was originally formed to probe the causes of civil unrest in Pakistan in 1953 because of the Islamists’ demand that Pakistan was formed as an Islamic State and should implement the Islamic law. This report provides an excellent historical, cultural, political, and scriptural perspective of the rationale, original ideology, and how the radicals subsequently engineered the ideology of Pakistan as an Islamic State. In doing so the Islamists ceded that parts of the Qur’an prohibiting violence have been abrogated – an assertion that demolishes one of the five pillars of Muslim faith. Ironically, the Islamists could not even agree on a common definition of a Muslim!
