Students protest prolonged closure of Lal Masjid

ISLAMABAD, Sept 29: During a protest demonstration outside the Lal Masjid on Friday, Jamia Faridia and Jamia Hafsa students demanded that the district administration open the mosque for prayers.

Scores of students of these seminaries gathered outside the Lal Masjid. They said the government and the district administration would be responsible for any untoward incident if they were not allowed to offer 'Jumatul Wida' in the Lal Masjid.

The students said they had been tolerating unjustified actions of the district administration for the last nine months. They demanded the government construct the Jamia Hafsa and open Jamia Faridia. They said operation against the Lal Masjid had badly affected the studies of these seminaries' students.

The students warned the district administration that they would not allow the authorities to keep the mosque closed. They also asked the government to withdraw all the cases against Maulana Abdul Aziz and their classmates.

Some students of Jamia Hafsa tried to enter the Lal Masjid but the police stopped them. Jamia Faridia students raised slogans against the security officials and the government. The students offered Friday prayer on the Municipal Road, which was cordoned off by Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT) Police and the Punjab Police to prevent the students from proceeding towards the mosque. After Friday prayer they dispersed peacefully.

The district administration had deployed a heavy contingent of police to prevent the students from entering the mosque and to avoid any untoward situation.

The Traffic Police blocked the Municipal Road, where the students were protesting and later offered Friday prayer, and diverted the traffic towards Justice Sir Abdur Rasheed and Embassy Road. Daily Times
