Schools, dispensaries and hospitals are also among the facilities

The Sindh and Punjab governments sealed and took administrative control of countless mosques, seminaries and welfare institutions run by banned outfits Jamaatud Dawa (JuD) and its charity wing Falah-i-Insaniat Foundation on Wednesday.

The move comes a day after the federal government added Hafiz Saeed’s JuD and its charity wing FiF into its list of proscribed organisations. The government had also taken Malauna Masood Azhar’s brother and son into “preventive custody for investigation”.

In what is being termed as a crackdown under the National Action Plan, Punjab and Islamabad Capital Territory’s auqaf departments have installed their imams and khateebs in several mosques and seminaries.

Two madrassahs and two mosques in Islamabad while one hospital and two dispensaries in Rawalpindi being run by proscribed organisations have been sealed.

Sindh government takes over JuD’s welfare schemes

Meanwhile, the Sindh government has taken administrative control of 31 schools and 16 madrassahs being operated by banned outfits in the province.

The seminaries and welfare institutions would now be run under provincial government’s supervision, said Murtaza Wahab, adviser to the Sindh chief minister on information.

Wahab said district-level committees comprising deputy commissioners, members from departments of education, health, and auqaf would look over the operations of the institutions.
