Seminaries functional in Lahore
Lahore: Almost all madaris or seminaries are functioning in the city as usual though all state and private educational institutions have been closed across the country on government's orders for fear of terrorist attacks.

A survey conducted on Thursday showed 389 small and big seminaries in the provincial capital were open and a couple of policemen had been deployed at the entrance of each of them.

Jamia Naeemia administrator Raghib Husain Naeemi said they had neither received any direction from the government nor threat from militants so there was no logic in suspending education at the seminary.

He criticised the government for closing schools on security concerns, saying that it had given a negative message to children besides emboldening militants.

He demanded that the authorities open schools and build morale of the students to prepare them for fighting terror threats.

Jamia Naeemia, Garhi Shahu, was hit by a suicide attack this June wherein seminary's administrator Dr Sarfraz Naeemi, the father of Raghib, was killed.

Jamia Madnia, Karim Park, administrator Maulana Ahmad Mian said the government had virtually surrendered before militants by ordering the closure of schools.

He said the government should forge unity among the people and build them into a nation to encounter all internal and external security threats instead of creating harassment among the masses. Dawn
