Hafiz Saeed banned by Pakistan's government to go outside

  • 5 years ago
Hafiz Saeed, the chief of Jamaat-ud-Dawa – a wing of the banned Lashkar-e-Taiba which masterminded the 2008 attacks in Mumbai – has announced another protest for tomorrow in Lahore.

In view of the calls given by the rightwing religious groups, police have stepped up security outside all foreign consulates, including the French consulate — the scene of violent protests yesterday in which an AFP photojournalist and three others were injured.

The police have put up containers, erected cement blocks and deployed at least a dozen patrol vans near the consulate.

“These are precautionary measures after what happened (yesterday),” said Sindh Information Minister Sharjeel Memon.

A senior police official said heavy contingent of police and paramilitary rangers have been deployed outside all foreign consulates, including the French, in Karachi.
