ISLAMABAD: A man allegedly distributing pamphlets of the proscribed outfit Hizb ut-Tahrir (HuT) outside a mosque in Islamabad has been arrested by police.

Five men were handing out pamphlets outside a mosque in Sector G-7/2 meant to incite the public against the government and state institutions, said police officials.

When they saw the police approaching, they tried to flee. The police, however, managed to arrest one of them on Oct.4.

According to the FIR, pamphlets found in his possession were published by the HuT, a banned militant organisation.

According to the police, the pamphlets read, “Get rid of this weak leadership which seeks honour in subservience to and alliance with America.”

The papers also carried a hate speech against the government and the institutions of Pakistan.

The police have booked the five suspects under the anti-terrorism law.


Tariq | 6 years ago | Reply Utterly shameful. How could someone who distribute papers could be called militant. Why not read what is written and discuss it with the ones distributing?
