RAHIM YAR KHAN:


As many as 200 religious education institutes in Rahim Yar Khan have been advised to register with the government as soon as possible, said DPO Sohail Zaffar Chatta on Wednesday.


He was addressing a meeting with religious scholars and the district peace committee.

He said students from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa would not be allowed to attend seminaries in Rahim Yar Khan.

The DPO said students would not be allowed to stay at seminaries after study hours were over. He said ordinances promulgated by the governor in this regard would be strictly enforced. He said there were 200 religious education institutions lacking proper registration in Rahimyar Khan. He said their administrations had been directed to complete their paper work without delay. He said if they failed to do so, police would take action against them. He said trade with Afghan refugees was forbidden. He urged religious scholars to raise awareness about legal reforms regarding seminaries..
