Lal Masjid Madrassa students warned

ISLAMABAD, May 26(Daily Times): Interior Minister Aftab Ahmed Khan Sherpao on Friday warned the Lal Masjid administration that the law would take its course if madrassa students tried to forcibly close CD and video shops.

"Nobody will be allowed to take the law into his or her own hands," Sherpao told reporters here at the Parliament House. He was asked to comment on Lal Masjid mullah Maulana Abdul Aziz's announcement that madrassa students would take action to close video and CDs shops, brothels and massage centres in the city if the government did not meet their demands.

The minister said the Capital Development Authority (CDA) had been directed to reconstruct mosques in accordance with the agreement reached between the government and Lal Masjid clerics.
