Islamabad, Oct 3: Alleged love affair between Hina Rabbani Khar and Bilawal Bhutoo might turn into a horrible tale as Muslim community has reacted strongly against the relations. Eminent Islamic scholars, leaders and clergies in Bangladesh recommended whipped or stoned to death for the duo, reported Bangladeshi tabloid Blitz, the first media organisation reported on the sensational high profile affair in Pakistan.
According to the tabloid, the clergies recommended such horrible punishment for Pakistan Foreign Minister and Chairman of ruling Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) under Sharia law.
One eminent Muslim scholar was quoted as saying, "If this report is true, it cannot be accepted under the Islamic laws. If Bilawal Bhutto is truly a bisexual and alcoholic; he does not have right to become the head of the state of any Muslim nation. The laws in Pakistan, does not permit such illicit activities."
"This is a severe offense under the Islamic laws. Bilawal Bhutto is a criminal in the eyes of Islamic law and such people can never be allowed to continue as a leader or head of the state in any Muslim nation," added the scholar.
News over Hina-Bilawal's alleged romantic relationship went viral on net. However, both Hina and her millionaire husband Feroze Gulzar have rubbished the reports terming the news as "reprehensible" and "trash". Gulzar also accused political classes in Islamabad of hatching such conspiracy against Hina and their family to malign their image. Though there were no official statements from Bilawal or his father, Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari.
A senior PPP official, however, stated a completely different story claiming that it was a conspiracy by Inter-Service Intelligence (ISI) aiming to damage Hina's reputation as ISI blames her for facilitating a UN investigation into thousands of missing people detained by the security forces.
"They are not happy with her. The UN mission received a cold reception but Hina was called in by the president to meet him and the army chief. She crossed some red line," the PPP official was quoted as saying.
Rubbishing such allegations against ISI, Pakistan military too said, "These allegations are absurd and baseless. The ISI has nothing to do with this defamation campaign and neither any problem exists between the Foreign Minister and the agency."
