LAHORE - The Punjab government on Monday clamped restrictions on movement of Hafiz Saeed, head of banned religious outfit Jamaat-ud-Daawa, disallowing him to lead Eid prayers outside Gaddafi Stadium, an open place where he used to perform this religious obligation in the past. 'The government enhanced security (measures) outside Johar Town residence of Hafiz Saeed on the night preceding Eid, as he was told not to go 'too far away from his house due to security reasons, Yahya Mujahid, spokesman of Jamaat-ud-Daawa told The Nation on Wednesday. He said that due to restrictions on his movement Hafiz Saeed could not lead Eid prayers at Gaddafi Stadium, and instead, had to say Eid prayers at a mosque close to his residence. Yahya confirmed that govt had not issued any written orders for putting Jamaats leader under house arrest, but in practical terms, his movement has been restricted. He said it was unjustified to stop a national leader from performing his religious obligations, and that too in an Islamic state like Pakistan. The Home Department, on the other hand, has maintained that there was no restriction on movement of Hafiz Saeed, but his security has been tightened owing to threat to his life. A Home Department spokesperson said on Wednesday that govt had not issued any written orders for house arrest of Hafiz Saeed. 'He is a free man and could move anywhere at will, but his security has been enhanced, he added.
