National Action Plan (NAP) that was devised to eliminate terrorism in Pakistan seems to remain only on the paper as it has become a reference point only while over hundreds cases of misuse of loud speakers and hate material came on surface in recent years in the capital city alone, which raised serious question over the writ of the state even in Islamabad.
The official data, compiled by interior ministry revealed that 85 cases related to misuse of loudspeaker by the clerics were registered by the capital police and 14 cases were registered against different clerics for delivering hate speeches and distribution of hate material in the city.
Majority of the cases were registered against the distribution of hate material outside different mosques which provoked sectarian violence, hate speeches in different places against government and army.
The data shows 27 people were arrested who belonged to different banned outfits as police recovered over 1000 pamphlets and CDs/DVDs from their possession.
According to the data, 14 cases were registered in different police stations of the capital as Aabpara and Bara Kahu police stations are on the top where three cases were registered respectively. The reaming cases were registered in the jurisdiction of Shalimar police station, Secretariat, Margalla, Sabi Mandi, Shehzad Town, Karachi Company and Shalimar police station.
The data revealed that on February 2, 2017 Banigala police registered a case against unknown after police was informed that some unknown pasted pamphlets outside his house which had written that Taliban and Sipah-e-Sahaba zindaabad. However, the unknown is still at large because takfiris of banned Deobandi terrorist outfits always enjoy similar inaction.
Similarly, the data shows 85 cases were registered against misuse of loudspeaker and clerics were booked under amplifier act. The cases were registered in the jurisdiction of Aabpara police station, Bara Kahu, secretariat, Margalla, Golra, Tarnol, Noon, Shehzad Town, Industrial Area , Bani Gala, Ramna, Sabzi Mandi police station. Majority of the clerics had violated section 144 and misused the loudspeakers during Friday’s prayers.
A senior official of the interior ministry, who requested not to quote his name that this situation is alarming, “If federal capital has a high numbers of cases in recent years then others provinces will definitely have a high numbers of cases too,” he added.
