Instead of security officials or interior ministry/home department, Punjab Information Technology Board (PITB) is working on collecting information about illegal immigrants from Afghanistan and unregistered seminaries in District Gujrat of Pakistani Punjab province.


The PITB teams gave a form to all seminaries managements which they are supposed to return within a week after filling in the required information despite the fact that at least 2,000 unregistered mosques in the district, besides some 323 registered mosques, whereas the number of seminaries was said to be around 350. Unregistered mosques too have unregistered seminaries inside the premises of the mosques.

The team is also collecting visual data (photographs) on these seminaries, uploading it on a web-site designed by the PITB.

A senior official said these steps were being taken as per the guidelines given in the National Action Plan (NAP) so that a complete database of these institutions (mosques, seminaries) and concerned people (hardcore activists of the banned and sectarian outfits and Afghan nationals) could be established for any further action.

Two teams of the Punjab government have launched separate drives in the district to collect data on Afghan nationals residing here and for scrutiny of religious seminaries.

Official sources said that a technical team of the Punjab Information Technology Board (PITB) had been working closely with the police and other law enforcement agencies in connection with a survey aimed at counting all the Afghan refugees settled in the district, regardless of the fact whether they possessed residential documents (refugee cards) or they were without such papers. But, neither NADRA, nor NARA (National Aliens Registration Authority) has ever disclosed the details of illegal immigrants from Afghanistan. Interior ministry always covered up unregistered Deobandi seminaries and took no action despite police and intelligence reports about some registered seminaries that shelter the terrorists.
