The MQM chief had earlier called for the arrest of Aziz for ‘sympathising with the Taliban’ and demanded the army close down Jamia Hafsa seminary.
The Lal Masjid cleric landed in hot water after he allegedly refused to condemn the Peshawar school attack which left at least 132 school children dead. Police in Islamabad registered a case against him following a protracted protest by civil society members against his controversial statement.
