CALGARY – Police in Canada are investigating allegations of hate speech by a local imam who called a publisher and its administration ‘devil’ and ‘kaafir’.

Professor Syed Badiuddin Soharwardy, an imam at a mosque, has been under investigation by the Calgary Police for spreading hate messages against Ghulam Mustafa, publisher of Weekly Pakistan Post Calgary, on a mass level through Internet.

A number of people reported to the police that Soharwardy launched a malicious campaign against a local publisher (unnamed due to the sensitivity of

A number of people reported to the police that Soharwardy launched a malicious campaign against a local publisher (unnamed due to the sensitivity of the nature) with the support of his followers, provoking the public at large.

The National Press Council and the Canadian Journalists Association has also expressed serious concerns over the threats made to the publisher.

Soharwardy was born in a highly respected religious family in Karachi, Pakistan. His father, Allama Syed Muhammad Riazuddin Soharwardy was a famous Islamic scholar and the Imam of Jamia Bughdadi Masjid, Martin Road, Karachi where he established Dar-ul-Aloom Soharwardia.

  1. The another one..Why couldn’t any hatred speaker priest/ppl about Islam be under custody until now?
    Some wrote me ‘f..Allah f..Muhammad..Quran id bulls..’ in social media, and I gave advice to her not to behave like that. She said ‘I hate your religion’
    Is this behaviour abnormal more than his saying ‘devil’ and ‘kaafer’??
    Kafeer means non-Muslims , and devil is shaytan that’s created by Allah like human/animal
    Also, why did he said these words?
    I don’t understand why some ppl talk about Islam/our dearness in bad way to make us be anger plainly, where’s the law and equality??

  2. This is fake news. I have checked and there is no such investigation with the Calgary police. Ghulam Mustafa is a known liar and deceiver and someone who spreads Islamophobic lies in his newspaper.

    • This is fake news. Imam Syed never said this. The writer, Ghulam Mustafa is jealous because the Imam boycotted his newspapers in his masjid for spreading lies about the holy Prophet (SAW). The Imam never used the words “kaafir” or “devil” and there is no police investigation. Ghulam Mustafa is a liar and deceiver and does not deserve this name.
