Excesses against Tableeghi Jamaat won’t be tolerated: Pervaiz
Punjab Assembly Speaker Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi on Wednesday said that no excesses against the Tableeghi Jamaat would be tolerated.
The Tableeghi Jamaat was surely peaceful but not ownerless, Chaudhry remarked in a video message, adding that he had also contacted Punjab Chief Usman Buzdar on the issue.
He advised against any cruelty, which he said, would be tantamount to inviting the wrath of Almighty Allah.
The senior politician said the Tableeghi Jamaat members coming from abroad were the guests and ambassadors of peace in Punjab.
He called for ending the negative propaganda and releasing all the Tableeghi members besides shifting them to the Tableeghi centres and mosques after transforming these into quarantine facilities.
Chaudhry said the orders were implemented in Sindh but nothing had happened in Punjab despite sending the Sindh IGP’s notification to the provincial government.
The PML-Q leader asked whether the pandemic had spread in Europe and the US because of the Tableeghi Jamaat which, he added, was the largest representative organization of Muslims in the world.
