The Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) on Tuesday demanded that foreign funding to religious seminaries should be stopped.

Speaking during a session of the Senate, MQM senator Nasreen Jalil said that Jamiat UIema-e-Islam Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman should take the lead in offering details of foreign funding to his religious seminaries.

She further said that one of the organisers of the Lal Masjid protests in Islamabad Jibran Nasir was receiving threats after registration of a First Information Report (FIR) against Lal Masjid cleric Maulana Abdul Aziz.

Earlier on Monday, human rights activist Nasir, who has been leading the protest against Maulana Abdul Aziz, received a threatening call allegedly from Jamaatul Ahrar spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan who asked Nasir to end the protests, or "be ready for consequences".

On Sunday, an FIR was lodged against Maulana Aziz on charges of threatening MQM chief Altaf Hussain over terrorism, provocation and cyber crime.

It was the second FIR against the Lal Masjid cleric in a span of two days, the earlier one being filed by civil society activists in Islamabad.

The case against the cleric had been lodged by Advocate Arif Khan. The complainant had submitted as proof the video message as well as the written document in which Maulana Aziz had threatened Altaf Hussain, who had urged the government to demolish Lal Masjid.
