IS­LAM­ABAD

Shia Ulema Coun­cil Pak­istan has stated that the government has failed to pro­vide pro­tec­tion to the mourn­ers in Muhar­ram-ul-Haram, there­fore, the se­cu­rity re­spon­si­bil­ity of Ashura should be given to the army, ac­cord­ing to me­dia re­ports.

Ad­dress­ing a press con­fer­ence here Thurs­day, Sec­re­tary Gen­eral SUCP Al­lama Arif Hus­sain Wahidi said the government brings very weak cases in the court and blames that courts re­lease the ter­ror­ists. Arif Wahidi urged the chief jus­tice to take no­tice of ter­ror­ist ac­tiv­i­ties. He fur­ther said ter­ror­ism could not be elim­i­nated from coun­try un­til the ter­ror­ists were hanged to death. Wahidi an­nounced coun­try-wide protest af­ter Jumma prayer on Fri­day.
