KARACHI – “Religious seminaries in Pakistan have become headache for the state, as their takfiri teachings are causing hatred among the masses in the country. There are numerous cases of torture, rape, violence and terrorism connected to madaris. Takfiri seminaries like Lal Mosque surround Pakistani capital, which is considered a security threat for the state.

Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif is required to extend Zarb-e-Azb operation to religious seminaries and muftis too. About 90 per cent of foreigners studying in religious seminaries across the Punjab have expired visas.

Madrassas spread takfiri and Wahhabi ideology to students, which is also being spread in the society, to the families and extended families of these students. Madrassas also spread sectarian hatred, and do not allow pupils and society to look at alternative perspectives within the religious discourse.”

The citizens while talking to Shiite News on Thursday expressed these views. They denounced the Karachi-Bus incident, in which 45 people were killed in an attack of takfiri terrorists on Wednesday.

A professor, declined to be named, said that tafiri terrorists have killed more than 1000 Shia Muslims during the last two years in Pakistan. Now they targeted Shia Ismaili community, he said and asked the government what law and order situation will make the government to take action against these seminaries promoting extremism and terrorisim in the country, he said.

Touseef Ahmed, working in a shipping company, said that religious seminaries were playing role as nursery for religious terrorism in the country. Following the agenda of Saudi Arab, these seminaries want to extend Wahhabism in the country; their students and muftis spread hatred among the masses, but the government is playing the role of silent spectator in the whole situation, he said.

It is pertinent to mention here that there are around 18-24,000 registered madaris in Pakistan. There are countless more unregistered seminaries. There are as many as 83 illegally constructed mosques and seminaries only in Islamabad alone.

Farhan Lakhani, a member of Ismaili community, said that the government has failed to protect its citizens. The citizens are left on the mercy of takfiri terrorists. In Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Jordan, Iran, the state controls religious learning to prevent sectarian disharmony in society, he added.

“The killing of 45 people in the Bus-Incident has exposed the intelligence failure. The head of extremist takfiri clerics, Mufti Naeem and his seminary Jamia Banori are doing the same in Karachi. He recently issued a decree against the federal information minister Pervez Rasheed, in which the extremist Mullah declared the minister infidel for his remarks against the seminaries,” he said.

Maulana Ahmed Iqbal said that the present democratic government of PML-N was openly supporting the Saudi Arab-backed takfiri banned outfits in the country. The government is hesitant to demolish illegally set up madrassas fearing a violent backlash like Laal Masjid.

According to some media reports, “There are at least 22,052 registered madaris in Pakistan as per record of the Interior Ministry while there is a little record of the unregistered seminaries in the country which also run into thousands. In the federal capital alone there are at least 187 registered madaris as per record while reportedly there are at least 446 unregistered madaris built on the green belts of the capital having around 22,000 students and no one dares to touch the illegal Madaris. According to the Interior Ministry data, Punjab has 14,954 registered Madaris; Sindh has 4,264; there are 1,400 registered religious seminaries in KP and around 1,247 registered madaris in Balochistan. The registration of Madaris started with the Ministry of Religious Affairs and Inter Faith Harmony in 2005 after promulgation of Madrisa Registration; Societies Registration (Second Amendment) Ordinance 2005.
