  • Jihad is a duty in Islam. ... Those who avoid jihad are not Muslims.
    • Rasheed Ahmad. While speaking in Pakistan’s Parliament.
    • Quoted from “Shocking: Pak minister talks of jihad and Kashmir,” Times of India, March 1, 2019 [1]
  • If anyone looks askance at Pakistan, those eyes will be gouged out. Then neither grass will grow, nor birds chirp, or bells ring in temples, because Pakistan is that fortress of Mussalmans which Muslims across the world look up to.
