No body can be declared "wajibqatl" except by state: Imam e Kaaba

No body can be declared

ISLAMABAD: Imam-e-Kaaba Shaikh Saleh bin Muhammad Ibrahim has said that an individual has no authority to call for a person’s death and declare him ‘wajib-ul-qatl’ and only a Muslim state has the power to do so.

Non-state actors cannot declare anyone infidel or apostate, said Imam-e-Kaaba speaking in Geo News show Jirga, after his arrival in Pakistan last week.

"The three conditions of progress are fear of God, sincerity, and deliverance," he added.

On Wednesday, while addressing a Cabinet session, he said that the nation must stand united to rise above personal motives and take decisions in favour of the national interests.
