In today’s episode of the Tribune Take we look at The Express Tribune’s exclusive news story about how 90 per cent of foreigners studying in religious seminaries across the Punjab have expired visas and are still in the country.
Asad Kharal, The Express Tribune‘s correspondent based in Lahore discusses the government’s inability to crackdown on religious schools across the country. He notes that these foreign nationals are often the ones linked to terror attacks, and therefore pose a security threat to the country.
Zahid Gishkori, The Express Tribune‘s correspondent based in Islamabad has been covering the issue of unregistered madrassas in the capital. He says that the government is hesitant to act on demolishing illegally set up madrassas fearing a violent backlash like that witnessed with the Laal Masjid.
