No militancy in Madaris of Punjab: Sanaullah


LAHORE: Provincial Minister for Law and Parliamentary Affairs Rana Sanaullah said on Tuesday that not a single “Madrassa” was reported to have any links with militancy.

He said that geo-tagging of 13,787 Madaris had been completed where one million students were getting religious education.

Addressing a press conference at Punjab Assembly Cafeteria on Tuesday, Rana Sanaullah said that law enforcement agencies had also completed search operation of hostels and universities following the “Zero Tolerance Policy” against terrorism”.

He said that foolproof security measures have been adopted for PA session to be started from Wednesday, following threats to hit Punjab Assembly building by militants.

Sanaullah said that security agencies had been directed to ensure “zero tolerance” while companions or staff of MPAs and journalists would not be allowed to enter Punjab Assembly building during session.

Giving details of PA session, the law minister said that almost 51 resolutions, 21 call attention notices amendments in Women Protection Bill and Local Government Act would be presented during session which would continue for about two weeks.

He told the media,”there was a specific threat to Col (R) Shuja Khanzada by Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) while the incident occurred due to security laps and inquiry committee had made a breakthrough in this regard”.

To a question about PTI’s objection on Local Government Elections in phases, he said that Imran Khan was the only person in the world who objected everything.
