The cold war between Maulana Abdul Aziz of the Lal Masjid and the government is not ending. Maulana is still inside the Lal Masjid and has refused to leave the mosque till the govt approve his demands.
The demands of Maulana Abdul Aziz of Lal Masjid have created more complications. His latest demand is that the government declare jihad to resolve the Kashmir issue and implement the Quran and Sunnah system in the country.
Maulana Aziz has been in Lal Masjid for more than three weeks. Government sources told NewsBox a few days ago that Maulana had come to say the Jumma prayer at Lal Masjid but he stayed at Lal Masjid with his wife and more than 200 students and refused to leave the masjid.
Maulana Abdul Aziz’s wife Umm Hassan and the Principal of Jamia Hafsa told NewsBox that a few weeks ago the government had given them a plot of 20 kanals in the H-XII sector of Islamabad under a contract in 2011 after the demolition of the Jamia Hafsa, on which they also spent three and a half crore rupees. A mosque and madrassa were also built on the same plot, but according to Umm Hassan, the government refused to hand over the plot to them last year.
Talking to NewsBox, Maulana Aziz has said that the government should pay them 30.5 million for the plot.
Giving his opinion on the issue, Maulana told NesBox, “The government cancelled our H block-plot and broke their promising with us. Now let us build the Jamia Hafsa with the Lal Masjid or government build it on their own.”
“Ban on my Friday prayer address should be lifted, the system of Quran and Sunnah should be implemented in the country and the government should declare jihad for Kashmir”, he added.
Despite government sanctions, Maulana Abdul Aziz still delivered a Friday sermon at Lal Masjid. Critics think the government should resolve this issue as soon as possible, as the longer the problem, the more complicated it will become.
