According to the Shiite News, Malik Ishaq has been imprisoned in a Rahim Yar Khan jail since September 25 under the Maintenance of Public Order (MPO) Act to preempt sectarian strife.

The Punjab’s Home Department issued the orders which have also been conveyed the jail authorities as well as the police and district administration.
According to the Home Department’s orders, the extension period of another 60 days takes effect from October 25, sources in the prison department revealed.
Ishaq, the chief of the banned terrorists outfit was involved in 152 murder cases in which 70 people mostly belong to the Shia community and armed forces of the country.
He was released on bail from Kot Lakhpat Jail Lahore on July 14 in a case regarding the attack on the  Sri Lankan cricket team by the order of the Supreme Court because of the hidden support of Nasabi Punjab Government.
Ishaq had been in jail since 1997 for allegedly killing 12 members of Fida Hussain Ghalvi’s family, in addition to being allegedly involved in killing 58 other people in various incidents of sectarian violence. He is one of the founders of the terrorist outfit LeJ, a key suspect in the attack on the Sri Lankan team in Lahore in 2009.
He was granted bail by the apex court after the prosecution failed to prove his involvement in the case.
Ishaq was acquitted in 34 out of 44 cases while in the remaining 10 he had already been granted bail, official documents revealed.
Intelligence and law enforcement agencies’ reports have revealed that the banned organization’s leader is engaged in highly objectionable activities which may spark sectarian violence in Punjab.
Ghulam Rasool Shah, who is also a co-accused in some cases of terrorism registered against Ishaq, was earlier confined in his hometown, Bahawalnagar’s jail.
Shah had imprisoned in a Bahawalnagar’s jail   since the last week of September, 2011 for 30 days under the MPO.
