‘Jihad For The Poor, Foreign Education For Own Son’: JI Leader Liaquat Baloch Called Out By Twitterati
Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) leader Liaquat Baloch is being called out on social media for ‘hypocrisy’ after he announced that his son had successfully defended his PhD thesis at the University of Toronto in Canada.
الحمد اللہ میرے بیٹے احمد جبران بلوچ نے ٹورنٹو آف یونیورسٹی سے PhD تھیسز کے ڈیفنس کا مرحلہ کامیابی سے مکمل کر لیا ہے۔پینل نے کامیابی پر مبارکباد دی اور Oral Exam میں کارکردگی کو Excellent قرار دیا۔یہ اس کے مسلسل محنت میڑک دی پنجاب سکول،جی سی لاہور گریجویشن،ایم ایس سی اکنامکس

Baloch is a longtime proponent of ‘jihad’ and has aways urged people to send their children away to fight in the name of God, which is why his son’s education at a foreign university did not sit well with social media users. The JI strongly opposes secularism as well as foreign countries’ friendly relations with Muslim nations. Its leaders maintain that non-Muslims cannot be true friends to the Muslims.
Therefore, it is being said that despite his strong stance against non-Muslim countries, Baloch chose to send his own son to a foreign university to study under a secular education system.
According to Twitterati, it is hypocritical that religious leaders want children of the poor to leave their homes for jihad, but send their own children abroad for higher studies.
Jamaat-e-Islami leaders send their children to the West for higher education. While jihad in Kashmir and Afghanistan remains an obligation only for the kids of the poor. https://t.co/YGtdw77zFr

Once Dr Arfa Zahra asked Qazi Hussain Ahmad that why you send your kids for education abroad, and ask others to send their kids for Jihad, and he replied God has appointed different ppl for different tasks, she replied, and God has given the list to you https://t.co/GXhBpZ80Ki

There is a reason we call Jamat e Islami "munafiq e Islami" 😁😅
They preach Pakistanis to fight for Islam and West is anti Islam but they send their children WEST for study. They are the worst people. May ALLAH humiliate them in a worst way. https://t.co/RvI21IXlsj

Congrats. However, why does almost everyone think that Jibran was flighting for Kashmir’s freedom in IoK? And, why choose the @UofT instead of @UMTofficial Lahore or Imam Hossein University, Tehran? Well, then how do we know @liaqatbalochji! https://t.co/tl4XSnoqZ1

SNC and Madrassah compliant education that discourages critical thinking for our own students while Toronto university, liberal, “secular”, education for your children.
I don’t see you demanding these foreign universities to place IJT armed goons on their campus? https://t.co/pbKeFI2zkd
