Jud ban becomes subject of politicking in PakJanuary 6th, 2009 - 3:38 pm ICT by ANI
Lahore, Jan.6 (ANI): Even though the whole world is concerned about terror activities being run from its soil, grave issues like banning dreaded terror outfits seems to be a subject of political brickbating in Pakistan, with the federal government and the provincial government contradicting each other.
Contradicting Information Minister Sherry Rehmans statement on banning the Jud, Punjab government spokesman Pervaiz Rashid has said that the provincial government has already taken concrete steps aimed at putting curbs on Jamaat ud Daawa.
Federal Minister Sherry Rehmans statement in this connection is not based on facts, the Nation quoted Rashid, as saying.
The provincial government has already put five top JD leaders Mufti Abdur Rehman, Hafiz Saeed, Ameer Hamza, Colonel Nazir and Yasin Baloch under house arrest, sealed 61 offices of the charity and had taken over 19 dispensaries and 10 schools it ran, Rashid claimed.
Necessary measures are also being taken for assuming control of the central headquarters of Jamaatud Dawa at Muridke, he added
Earlier, Pakistan Information Minister Sherry Rehman had said that stern action will be taken against the banned Jamaatud Dawa (JuD).
Rehman stated that proof against the JuD has been shared with the Punjab government, which has assured the federal government of co-operation.
I am absolutely sure the Punjab government will act, the Daily Times quoted Rehman,as saying in a television interview. (ANI)
