The Islamabad High Court on Wednesday directed the interior ministry to inform it about the status of a criminal case filed against Lal Masjid cleric Maulana Abdul Aziz.

The court issued these directives in response to a petition filed by civil society activist Jibran Nasir.

The petitioner has made the interior ministry, the inspector general of police, the Aabpara police station house officer, and others as respondents.

Nasir has requested the court to set aside an order of a district court and direct the respondents to register an FIR against Aziz, his wife and students of Jamia Hafsa for pledging allegiance to Daesh.

IHC judge Mohsin Akhtar Kayani directed the government counsel to communicate to send a senior interior ministry official on June 9 to update the court on the issue.

Nasir has approached the high court after Additional District and Sessions Judge Raja Asif Mehmood dismissed his application on March 7, observing that the complainant lacked legal standing for registration of the FIR.

The petitioner said that some students of Jamia Hafsa have released a video on social media inviting Daesh to intervene in Pakistan and kill soldiers and civilians, chop off their hands, behead them, and tear apart their bodies to avenge the killing of Osama bin Laden and the Lal Masjid operation.

He said that Aziz through another video appreciated and endorsed the students’ message and stated that the mission of the so-called Islamic State of establishing a Caliphate and his mission were same.

The petitioner also said that Aziz, his wife, and students of Jamia Hafsa had earlier taken up arms against the state.

He said that a proscribed terrorist organization called ‘Ansarul Islam’ joined Daesh in 2014 and “now runs a militant camp in Syria named after Maulana Abdul Aziz’s brother Abdul Rasheed Ghazi, who was killed in Lal Masjid operation in 2007.

The petitioner contended that allegiance to Daesh and propagating and supporting its agenda and calling them for revenge clearly constitutes cognizable offenses of serious nature that threaten the national security as well as peace and order in the society.
