300 firebrand clerics restricted for 60 days in Sindh since Moharram



The Sindh government placed restrictions on the movement and travelling of 300 clerics for the next 60 days.

It is relevant to add here that instead of taking action against the clerics belonging to banned militant outfits or of their seminaries who continue to preach their ideology of hate and intolerance throughout the year, unfortunately government gets up from slumber during Moharram by adopting an unjustifiable policy under which government imposes restrictions on the movement of pro-peace, law-abiding, patriot and moderate qualified senior Shia Islamic scholars too, just to please the banned militant outfits foreign masters who share their ideology.

A notification in this regard was issued by the Sindh Home Department bearing names of all the religious scholars.

The notification reads that “keeping in view the prevailing law and order situation in Muharram it is imperative to restrict these firebrand speakers and scholars”.
