90% mosques and madaris of Islamabad not in Government’s control

Islamabad: 90% Mosques of Islamabad have been run by Imams or local people and hence, the government does not have any influence or control over them.

A report prepared by the Interior Ministry with respect to NAP states that the Federal government does not have any influence or control over 868 mosques of Islamabad out of a total of 957 mosques. It has also been stated in the report that around fifty million rupees are spent each year for paying salaries of those 89 Mosques’ staff that have been run by the government whereas more than ten million rupees have been spent for paying utility bills and other expenditures.

The report does not provide any details about the mosques that have been run by the local people.

Interior Ministry and Capital Development Authority (CDA) officials told Dawn that the budget of privately operated mosques is much greater than the government’s mosques because huge prayer congregations take place in those mosques.

Mosques that have been run by the government, excluding Faisal Mosque and Lal Masjid, have an average capacity of 1500 people. Senior Officials of CDA told that the number of privately run mosques increased during Zia ul Haq’s era and have been increasing since then. Officials of Interior Ministry regarded it a difficult task to bring all these mosques under government’s control however, they also ruled out the possibility of giving complete freedom to them. Officials declared it mandatory for government to keep an eye on privately run mosques in order to follow the NAP.
