High-level official probe in Ahmadiyya printing presses on demand of a mulla
Rabwah; March 2019: Mulla Hasan Muawiya who is secretary of Tahaffuze Khatme Nabuwwat Forum had applied to Lahore High Court on May 25, 2018 that, despite the official ban, Quran was being published in Rabwah; he demanded action. The court ordered the concerned authorities to hold a fresh inquiry and report results.
Accordingly, the DC, the DPO and the Chairman of Quran Board, Punjab accompanied by a number of mullas came to Rabwah on November 29 and inspected the printing presses. The team was escorted by a sizeable contingent of police. Muawiya demanded his own presence as well, but rightly was not allowed by the police for his hostile and malicious attitude.
Authorities submitted the report to the LHC. The judge required the IGP to be present at the hearing on March 5. Justice Shujaat Ali Khan observed, “Quran Act should be implemented without discrimination of colour, race or bias.” He directed the IGP to act according to law and pay special attention to this matter. The court verdict was released later; it is reported elsewhere in this report.
