Crackdown on JuD, JeM: Pak govt seals seminary, hospital, dispensary and mosque

Srinagar: Upon the directives of the federal government, the district government of Rawalpindi on Wednesday sealed several establishments run by the proscribed Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD), Dawn reported.

A seminary, hospital, and two dispensaries โ€” located on the Chakrah and Adiala roads and run by the JuD โ€” have been sealed, sources within the deputy commissioner’s office told DawnNewsTV.

According to sources, the crackdown against proscribed military outfits, including the JuD, is being spearheaded by the district administration.

According to sources, a list of all establishments run by proscribed outfits has been created and the district government will take action against them. However, the source clarified that no arrests will be made during the crackdown.

Earlier the Punjab government took over the administrative control of Al-Noor Masjid and sealed a religious seminary adjacent to the mosque.

Both establishments were said to be the local headquarters of Jaish-e-Muhammad (JeM).

According to local administration officials, the seminary was involved in subversive activities because of which the Gujranwala Counter Terrorism Department had registered a case under the terrorism act on Jan 14, 2016 against the seminary management.
