Madrassas have no ‘link’ to militancy in Punjab: Rana Sanaullah
LAHORE (Web Desk) - A day after Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar acknowledged “slow progress” in madrassa reforms as part of the National Action Plan, Punjab Minister for Law and Parliamentary Affairs Rana Sanaullah seemed to contradict him, claiming on Tuesday that not a single madrassa in the province had any links with militancy.

Addressing a press conference at the Punjab Assembly on Tuesday, Sanaullah provided details of action on madrassas, saying that 13,787 madrassas had been geo-tagged in the province, adding that one million students were getting religious education in these seminaries.

Law enforcement agencies have also completed a search operation of hostels and universities, he said. Earlier this month, a number of hostels and seminaries had been raided by LEAs with several dozen suspects detained.

With his colleague, home minister Shuja Khanzada assassinated last week, Sanaullah said that they were instituting a “zero tolerance policy” against terrorism.
