Rumours are circulating in the federal capital that Government-financed Lal Masjid Islamabad’s Deobandi but takfiri cleric Abdul Aziz has been placed under house arrest in the seminary (Jamia Hafsa) near the mosque.

The rumours started after Abdul Aziz did not come to the Lal Masjid and delivered his Friday sermon via telephone.


After that, there were speculations that the Deobandi takfiri cleric had been house arrested in Jamia Hafsa located near the mosque otherwise he would not have opted for the telephonic sermon. However, both the Islamabad police and the Lal Masjid administration rejected the rumours.

It may be mentioned that after the Peshawar incident, Abdul Aziz stated that he cannot condemn the killing of the innocent schoolchildren in Peshawar and neither considered them martyrs. After the controversial statement, the civil society launched a protest campaign against the Deobandi takfiri cleric.

For two days, the protests were held in front of the mosque during which takfiris led by Abdul Aziz threatened the protesters. As a result, a case was registered against him.

But even after the registration of the case, the civil society continued holding protests demanding that the cleric should be arrested and removed as the head of the mosque.

In the meantime, a local court issued warrants for the arrest of Abdul Aziz but the cleric said he would neither apply for a bail nor would surrender to the police.
His statement further triggered anger among the civil society activists. They were of the view that the police were not arresting the cleric because of his influence inside power corridors.

When contacted, Senior Superintendent of Police (operations) Mir Viaz Niaz said the cleric had not been house arrested. Lal Masjid’s naib khateeb Amir Siddique confirmed that he delivered a telephonic speech during the Friday prayers.
