FIR registered against Lal-Masjid’s Deobandi cleric of Abdul Aziz
ISLAMABAD: A First Information Report (FIR) has been registered against Lal Masjid’s chief cleric Maulana Abdul Aziz at Aabpara Police Station upon unremitting pressure exerted from protesting civil society on Friday night.
The non-bailable FIR was registered under section 506 (2).
The candlelight vigil and protest was organised in response to a statement by Maulana Abdul Aziz in which he refused to condemn the massacre of students and teachers in a terrorist attack on a school in Peshawar.
A huge contingent of police personnel has been deployed outside the capital’s Lal Masjid to deal with any untoward situation after another call of protest by members of civil society. Later, protesters announced that they be rallying at Melody Chowk instead.
