In another step to wrongly equate peaceful law-abiding non-controversial Shia religious scholars with pro-terrorism hate-mongering takfiris, Islamabad administration has barred renowned Shia scholars such as Allama Raja Nasir Abbas Jafari and Allama Amin Shaheedi from delivering sermons at any public place in Islamabad.

The Islamabad Capital Territory Administration (ICTA) has also banned the entry of 16 clerics including peaceful law-abiding Shia scholars in the city limits for a period of two months. The step has been taken on the advice of the Special Branch of police that has wrongfully included Shia scholars to please the takfiris on the pretext to maintain peace and order in the city during Muharram. Special Branch is an intelligence wing of the police that monitors the activities of religious and political personalities.
Speeches of Abdul Aziz, Abdul Razzaq Haidri, Qari Ahsanullah and Abdur Rehman Muaviah were also banned in Islamabad because of the fact that they remained involved in provocative moves.
Speeches of Allama Amin Shaheedi, Allama Nasir Abbas Jafri, Sheikh Mohsin Ali Najafi, Agha Shifa Najafi, Dr Zafar Iqbal Jalali, Maulana Liaquat Ali Rizvi, and Maulana Imtiaz Hussain Kazmi were also banned.
The 16 clerics who have been barred from entering the capital include proscribed Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat (ASWJ) central leader Aurangzeb Farooqi, ASWJ general secretary Khadim Hussain Dhaloo, Hafiz Muhammad Daddique, Tahir Ashrafi, Ilyas Ghuman, Muaviah Azam, Abdul Khaliq Rehmani.
Entry of Zakir Ghazanfar Tunsavi, Jaffar Jatoi, Zakir Maqbool Hussain, Hafiz Tasaddaq Hussain, Muhammad Iqbal, Yousaf Rizvi, Pir Irfan Al-Mashahdi, Khadim Hussain Rizvi, and Dr Asif Ashraf Jalali was also banned. It is unjust to equate the proscribed outfit’s clerics with those who were never affiliated with any banned/proscribed outfit.
Meanwhile, an order issued by Islamabad District Magistrate Mushtaq Ahmad said that these clerics are “sectarian agitators, firebrand speakers, and are likely to indulge in sectarian activities, deliver provocative sectarian speeches/sermons aiming to create animosity and hatred between various religious sects.” So far as this charge is concerned, it only applies on the takfiri Deobandis of proscribed ASWJ and their allied clerics and not on others.
Administration said any breakdown of law and order in the city could also be exploited by terrorists. The order comes into force at once.
Muharram security
Rawalpindi City Police Officer, Israr Ahmed Abassi, meanwhile, has assured of stringent security for the mourners and the people.
Similarly, Rawalpindi DPO Dr Muhammad Abid Khan held a meeting with Ulema from all schools of thought, at DPO office, to discuss sectarian harmony during the mourning month. He said that over 3,000 police personnel would be deputed at all Imambargahs and other sensitive areas including routes of Muharramul Haram processions.
He said that there will be 1,257 congregations and 334 processions held in the month, during which there will be a complete ban on display of arms, loudspeakers, wall chalking and publication of any inciting literature.
