Rawalpindi administration and police have asked the administration of the self-claimed Taleemul Quran seminary in Raja Bazaar to close for three days on and after Ashura.

This seminary and its mosque had preached intolerance and violence through speeches of the hatemongering clerics against peaceful Shia Muslims that sparked- off violent attacks against the Shiites on Ashura Day. The seminary, which was reopened on Sept 30, is along the main mourning procession route that will be taken out in Muharram.
In 2013, the seminary, a mosque and a fabric market in Raja Bazaar were torched after their own incited violence on Ashura. The provincial government spent Rs240 million to rebuild the seminary, mosque and 100 shops in the fabric market despite the fact that it was and it is still controlled by banned Deobandi takfiri outfits control. Construction was completed on the seminary, mosque and market, and they were handed over to the seminary’s administration and traders in 2016. To the dismay of Pakistani Muslims, the seminary was inaugurated days before Muharram began, and Religious Affairs Minister Sardar Mohammad Yousaf was invited as chief guest.
The chief of the seminary Ashraf Ali said that the City Police Officer (CPO) Israr Abbasi asked the seminary administration to vacate the seminary for three days beginning Muharram 10, saying the situation in the country will be critical in the coming days.”
He said the request was a simple one, but the administration sought three days to respond as the city’s religious scholars needed to be taken on board before a decision is made. It is ridiculous because on the one hand, mourners of Imam Hussain (AS) are denied permission to recite nohas on loudspeakers and offer drinking water at sabeels and action is being taken against them without any justification in all over Pakistan but the banned terrorist outfits clerics are allowed to take decision on their own and they are allowed three days to do so. That leniency has emboldened the banned takfiri outfits clerics to say: “We started consultations with religious scholars and seminary teachers on whether to accept the local administration’s request,” he said, adding that it would be difficult for the seminary administration to give students holidays.
