The terror organizations are back in the open within Pakistan. Lashkar-e-toiba and Jaish-e-Mohammad have reopened their offices.
LeT was renames Jamaat-ud-Dawa after being banned had an office in Karachi at Salman Terrace in Gulshan-e-Iqbal near National Stadium while JeM had an office in Manghopir. LeT had opened a new office ay Jamia Darasat al-Islamia opposite Safari Park in Gulshan-e-Iqbal, and it has reopened the old office in Salman Terrace back again after Musharraf’s resignation on Monday. The report is by Daily Times.
The Sipah-e-Sahaba Pakistan, now known as Ahle Sunnat-waal-Jamaat Pakistan, had its headquarters at Masjid Siddique-e-Akbar near Nagan Chowrangi in north Karachi. Even after it was banned, it stayed active in the same area.
Though the office remains closed, Sipah leaders have been conducting meetings in the building for the past two days, the paper reported.
Of course the honchos of these organizations are vying for the head of Musharraf.
The central leader of the SSP, Maulana Abdul Ghafoor Nadeem, told Daily Times on Wednesday that the ban on all religious parties, including the SSP, was a part of the “American” agenda. “The ban created hatred and anger amongst our supporters, as the SSP is patriotic and its leaders were chosen by the people to be members of parliament,” said Nadeem.
He said that the ban on the SSP had been challenged in court and the case was in progress. “The government should learn from Musharraf’s mistakes and his policies should be discontinued at once and the ban on political and religious parties should be lifted,” he said.
Replying to a question, Nadeem said that Musharraf should not be provided a safe exit, as he was responsible for the killings of thousands of innocent Muslims. “He is a national offender and only the nation can forgive him. If the government lets him go without facing trial, it will be considered as an accomplice of the former president,” he said.
And looking to install Shariat Law in Pakistan
The SSP also organized a program, ‘Youm-e-Dua Basilsila Istehkam-e-Pakistan’, on Independence Day, Aug 14 at Masjid Siddique-e-Akbar near Nagan Chowrangi after Zuhr prayers to pay homage to the martyrs of the ‘Pakistan Movement’. Ghafoor demanded that the government should announce Shariat law in the country on ‘Independence Day’, as that was the prime objective of the creation of Pakistan.
