Karachi: The Jafria Alliance Pakistan has demanded an end to the operation in Gilgit and release of all those innocent youths who were arrested by implicating them in baseless cases. Demanding arrest of the killers of Agha Ziauddin, Allama Ghulam Hussain Najfi and Shaheed Naqi Abbas, the alliance called for repeal of controversial syllabus. The demand was made by Maulana Hussain Masoodi while addressing a press conference at Karachi Press Club where Allama Syed Furqan Haider Abidi, Agha Aftab Haider, Maulana Ikram Hussain Tirmizi and others were also present. The JAP chief warned that if injustices were not stopped the JAP alliance would observe protest day on Friday throughout the country. 'If operation against the ummah was not stopped forthwith in Gilgit and their demands were not met, the JAP would be compelled to resort to continuous protest which would culminate at Islamabad,' he added. The JAP leader pointed out that Baqiatullh Islamic institute was a religious centre and implicating its youths in false cases meant crackdown against Millat-i-Jafria. He forewarned that changing political situation in the region manifested a bloody sectarian conspiracy before possible US aggression on Iran. He said for this purpose terrorists were being freed.
