50 madrassas linked with banned outfits in Sindh


KARACHI: The Sindh government with the help of intelligence agencies has identified at least 48 madrassas in the province having links with banned organisations and half of them are operating in Karachi, according to local media sources.

“These seminaries are promoting terrorism. We have worked out and our security forces are ready to take action against these illegal and un-registered madaris,” IG Sindh Police Ghulam Hyder Jamali told a meeting on Wednesday at CM House.

The meeting, chaired by Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah, was held in compliance with the decision of the apex committee which decided to coordinate with the ulema of all schools of thought to get all madrassas registered under the amended laws in the province, sources further added.

The meeting decided that no new seminary will be established without obtaining a no objection certificate (NOC) from the concerned deputy commissioner and home department as well as Sindh Building Control Authority (SBCA).
