    Three seminaries sealed in Quetta, four clerics detained for interogation

    QUETTA: Three madrassahs were raided in Quetta's Eastern Bypass area on Monday morning, police said, adding that they were subsequently sealed over alleged involvement in 'suspicious' and 'illegal' activities.

    The sealed seminaries include Madrassah Hussainia, Madrassah Taleemul Quran and Madrassah Abu Bakar Siddique.

    The raiding party also picked up four clerics — Qari Saifur Rehman, Surat Shah, Habibullah, and Qari Wali — for interrogation.

    Strict security measures were adopted by the district administration when the seminaries were being sealed.

    Police said the madrassahs were sealed under the National Action Plan.

    Like other parts of the country, Balochistan has started a scrutiny process of religious seminaries, the instructors employed in these as well as their students across the province.

    Moreover, law enforcement agencies have intensified action in the aftermath of recent incidents of targeted killings in Quetta.

    According to sources in the home and tribal affairs department, around 3,000 madrassahs were registered with the provincial government in all districts of Balochistan.

    The registration drive began during the era of former president Pervez Musharraf. However, the number of non-registered madrassahs in the province is still in thousands.
