RAWALPINDI: The Punjab government might consider allocating separate funds for the running of the banned Jamaat-ud- Dawa (JuD) seminaries it took over, reported a local media outlet.
The government froze JuD accounts and that of its sister organisation, Falah-i-Insaniyat Foundation (FIF), and will now be solely responsible for running the day to day affairs of the seminaries and the health unit.
The district administration in Rawalpindi took over one seminary and four health units while the Islamabad administration took over three health facilities and seven ambulances. There were no JuD seminaries in Islamabad, according to the publication.
Auqaf Department Regional Administrator Zahid Iqbal told the publication that the Punjab government had asked the department to prepare a report on the expenses of the seminaries which came under the department’s control in February.
He said the Auqaf Department is running the Madressah Hudebia, the expense report of which has been sent to the Punjab government through the deputy commissioner. This includes teacher salaries, student meals and utility bills.
“All district administrations across the province have been asked to submit these details,” a senior district administration official said.
