A day after Punjab government took control of Chowburji head office of Jamaatud Dawa (JuD) Jamia Al Qadsia and main centre in Muridke, has barred JuD chief Hafiz Saeed from leading prayers at the Jamia Masjid Qadsia at Chowburji Chowk and appointed an official administrator there.
Saeed was never stopped from delivering Friday sermons even during the years when Masjid Qadsia’s control was under the Punjab government. “As the Punjab police have sealed the Jamia Masjid Qadsia, Saeed will not be allowed to enter the premises to give his weekly sermon on Friday,” a senior official of the Punjab government said. He said the JuD leadership in Lahore had also handed over 75 ambulances to police. The ambulances have been handed over to Rescue 1122 with a directive to redesign them and make them permanent part of the emergency service.
Earlier the National Security Committee during its meeting chaired by Prime Minister Imran Khan has decided to ban Hafiz Saeed-led Jamaat-ud-Dawa and its charity wing, Falah-e- Insaniat Foundation, and committee members has also decided to accelerate action against proscribed organizations.
