ISLAMABAD: The Ministry of Interior and Narcotics Control Thursday said the Sindh government had not provided complete details of the suspected seminaries.

The ministry, in a memorandum issued in response to the Sindh government’s list of seminaries, said the provincial government had not provided the addresses of those seminaries, besides reasons, proofs and other details to declare them as suspected.

It said the list did not contain details of the seminaries situated outside Karachi and Sukkur while many seminaries not located in Sindh but in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Federal Administered Tribal Areas were mentioned.

The recommendation of taking action against seminaries outside Sindh was beyond comprehension, it added.

The provincial officials concerned apparently did not know about the legal requirements, rules and regulations for banning an organization, it added.

The ministry advised the provincial government to keep itself limited to its administrative boundaries and always provide verified, correct and implementable information.

It also sought information from the Sindh government regarding the steps taken by police and other law enforcement agencies against any such seminaries and people associated with them.

Why the provincial government did not fulfill its responsibility by not taking action against the seminaries if it had any evidence against them, it asked.- SAMAA/AGENCIES
