Shaikh Jameel Ar-Rahmaan (rahimahullaah) was murdered on a Friday at the hands of one of the young Kharijites with the support of the people of misguidance; and everyone kept silent. However Safar al-Hawali claimed with his saying:  It was a fitnah in which Allaah saved our hands (from involvement), so our tongues were saved (from involvement)! This (statement of Safar) is a statement of truth by way of which falsehood is intended, for they (i.e. Safar and others) did not speak with truth; rather (they did) the opposite, and their tongues were not saved from keeping quiet about falsehood; rather they spoke with falsehood from the angle of not speaking truth out of forsaking (Ahlus Sunnah), and (out of) hiding and defending those whom they have praised for a very long time, such as Hikmatiyaar, Sayyaaf Rabbaanee and those affiliated with them, whose defects were exposed, (and likewise) their resentment towards Tawheed and its people.
