MULTAN

Jamaatud Dawa (JuD) Secretary General and Chairman Tehreek Hurmat-e-Rasool (THR) Maulana Ameer Hamza has declared that the JuD will file petitions against American curbs on JuD and THR in courts and all other international forums.

Talking to a delegation of JuD workers here on Monday, he added that the ban was imposed on Indian dictation but the reaction of Pakistani foreign office on this issue was very feeble. He said that America wanted to commit blasphemy and therefore attempts were being made to silence the voice of THR. “We’ll break the pens and bust the eyes of those even thinking of committing blasphemy. Protection of the sanctity of the personality of Holy Prophet (PBUH) is integral part of every Muslim’s faith,” he declared. He demanded the government to expel American ambassador from Pakistan and shut down American embassy in Islamabad. He said that the ruling PML-N was also part of THR and therefore the government should lodge strong protest with the US.

He said that the enemies of Islam wanted to create rift among different factions of Muslims and therefore sectarian terrorism was being promoted in the country. He said that the JuD unveiled American terrorism in all parts of the country which forced Americans and their agents to impose bans on JuD. He said that Americans were faced with a humiliating defeat in Afghanistan while on the other hand 180 million Pakistanis stood with the JuD.

He said that the JuD foiled Indian conspiracies by launching relief operation in Balochistan which invoked Indians to attack JuD via US. He declared that the JuD would continue its activities in Balochistan, Thar and North Waziristan.

Meanwhile, security has been beefed up in Multan as the security agencies declared 134 masjids of the district sensitive. Sources said that three cops will be deployed at each sensitive masjid while rest of all masjids will be guarded by one policeman at the time of tarawih and fajar prayer.  According to details, over 1000 cops have been deployed for the security of 930 masjids across the district. Police sources said that the guards deployed for the security of the masjids were fully armed and trained.
