The District Police have made foolproof security arrangements to thwart evil designs of disruptive elements to create law and order situation in the district during the upcoming holy month of Muharramul Harram.

In this connection, DPO Muhammad Zubair Darashak made a comprehensive security plan to depute 900 cops to ensure peaceful atmosphere at 623 majalis and 274 Alm, Nishan, Mehdi, Zuljinnah and Tazia precessions to be taken out in the district during Ashura-e-Muharram. The plan pointed out 24 precessions and 117 majalis as most sensitive.

Meanwhile, while addressing heads of different departments, the DCO Mansoor Qadir warned that those found creating law and order situation in the district would be dealt with iron hand. He said that carrying and display of firearms, aerial firing and use of loudspeaker without prior permission would not be allowed during Ashura-i-Muharram.

He further said that during Muharramul Harram employees of the TMA, Rescue-1122, Police, Health, Civil Defence departments would not be allowed any leave.

He also addressed the District Peace Committee members and stressed the need for further inter-faith harmony for maintaining traditional peace in the district.

The members of the peace committee assured the district administration that they would keep vigilant eye over the dubious character and would strive for ensuring traditional peace in the district.

The meeting was attended among others by TMA Administrator Safeena Siddique, District Office Coordination Noman Hafeez, Hafizabad AC Umar Farooq Warraich, Pindi Bhattian AC Rai Yasir Bhatti and members of Ulema of different school of thoughts.
