Pakistan was created to destroy India and Hinduism: 2011 video of Islamic cleric resurfaces

"Pakistanis should consider themselves fortunate that Allah has bestowed the honour to wage war against India to them," a prominent Islamic cleric and former banker Irfan-ul-Haq, was caught on video speaking to a Pakistani audience during a lecture in 2011.

Uploaded by author Tarek Fatah recently, the cleric, in the video, said "the Prophet had said that there will be a war in India that will be Ghazwa-e-Hind".

The cleric further added that if there was a place on earth where people worshipped stone idols, it was the Indian Subcontinent.

“The genesis of Pakistan was prophesied to defeat India and Hinduism at the hands of Pakistan,” Haq said in the video. The cleric went on to say that Pakistan's creation was done solely to destroy Hinduism and that Pakistan’s military and people will swarm India and wipe out, once and for all, the practice of Hinduism from the face of earth.

Fatah, in his blog, criticised the video and said that this was not the first time that the so-called preachers of Islam had tried to spread such "venom" in the society. In another video, which Fatah shared on his blog, he says, "This fellow uses clever doublespeak to not only use the lecture about ‘Ghazwa-e-Hind’ to spread hatred against Hindus, but also against Jews and Israel while provoking Pakistan Army to be even more radical and anti-India than they already are, taunting them to go further."
