LARKANA: Chief of Proscribed Sipah Sahaba Pakistan Aurangzeb Farooqui's name has been added to the fourth schedule under National Action Plan (NAP) and would be arrested should he try and speak at the congregation, police sources revealed.

Aurangzeb Farooqui and Ahmed Ludhiyanvi were to preach their terrorist ideology at a congregation covertly "Dastarbandi" in a seminary at Khairpur.

After much agitation and pressure from an affected faction at the hands of these terrorists, being in direct violation of the National Action Plan, the government was compelled to put their names under fourth schedule.

The Fourth Schedule comprises of the elements found to be or suspected to be involved in anti-state activities, delivering hate speeches and/or activists of religious outfits not yet banned but related with militancy in any way.

Civil Society has over the years protested the brutality and mayhem spread by this particular proscribed group Sipah Sahaba Pakistan (SSP) alais Ahle-sunnat wal jamaat (ASWJ) under the leadership of Aurangzeb Farooqui and Ahmed Ludhiyanvi.

Civil Society has actively protested against the pro-taliban prospects and atrocities against varied sects in Pakistan, asking the government for a meaningful action against them. They were the voice of not only Shiites but Minorities protesting against groups that deployed violence against Pakistani civilians, in the name of making Pakistan more Sunni and more sharia-compliant.

Infighting leaves 30 Daesh terrorists dead in northern Syria

infighting-leaves-30-daesh-terrorists-dead-in-northern-syriaPublished in: Middle East

At least 30 members of the Takfiri Daesh terrorist group have reportedly died and dozens more suffered injuries in the latest wave of infighting between anti-Damascus and foreign-sponsored militant groups operating inside conflict-ridden Syria.

The deadly clashes broke out between Daesh terrorists on one side and fighters from rival militant outfits in the town of Marea, located about 25 kilometers (15.5 miles) north of Aleppo, on Saturday, Arabic-language Suriya al-Mubasher news website reported.

Military sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, reported that three vehicles rigged with explosives were destroyed in the process.

Takfiri militants also seized a considerable amount of munitions and heavy machineguns belonging to Daesh following the skirmishes, and arrested two Daesh members.

Separately, there are reports that Syrian fighter jets have carried out a series of aerial attacks against militant positions in Jaroud Qarah and al-Jarajir districts of the strategic, mountainous region of Qalamoun, located about 330 kilometers (205 miles) north of the Syrian capital, Damascus.

Elsewhere in the eastern city of Deir Ezzor, Syrian army units and allied popular defense groups dealt a heavy blow to Daesh.

On Friday, Syrian army forces thwarted an al-Nusra Front offensive on military posts near the northern village of Ma'an, which is administratively part of Hama Province.

A military source, requesting not to be named, told Syria’s official news agency SANA that more than 50 Daesh terrorists were killed during the clashes, and nine vehicles destroyed. Two of the vehicles were reportedly armored and equipped with heavy machineguns.

An army unit, in cooperation with popular defense groups, also seized a car loaded with ammunition and weapons and belonging to Daesh on the road linking the city of Athriya to militant-held Raqqah, located on the north bank of the Euphrates River and about 160 kilometers (99 miles) east of Aleppo.

United Nations Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura says over 400,000 people have been killed in the crisis that has gripped Syria since March 2011.

Iraqi civilians flee Fallujah amid security operation against Daesh

iraqi-civilians-flee-fallujah-amid-security-operation-against-daeshPublished in: Iraq

Hundreds of people have fled the Iraqi city of Fallujah as government forces continue with a major operation to liberate the city, one of the remaining strongholds of the Takfiri Daesh terrorist group in Iraq.

A group of civilians numbering in the hundreds made it out of the city — where people are being prevented by Daesh from exiting — on Friday with assistance from Iraqi forces.

An estimated 50,000 civilians still remain trapped in the Daesh-held city by nearly 1,000 terrorists.

There has been no reference to the toll among Iraqi forces in the operation.

Fallujah is 70 miles west of the Iraqi capital of Baghdad. Daesh overran Fallujah in January 2014, some six months before the terrorist group launched a major offensive in Iraq and took over some other areas.

According to Lieutenant General Raed Shaker Jawdat, the commander of the Iraqi Federal Police Forces, security forces have so far managed to evacuate 760 people, mostly women and children, from the northern outskirts of Fallujah.

Daesh “gave us food that only animals would eat,” said a woman identified as Umm Omar, who fled Fallujah along with over 10 members of her family.

Tens of thousands of Iraqi forces launched a massive operation on May 22 to recapture Fallujah, the first Iraqi city to fall to Daesh.

Meanwhile, Iraqi forces destroyed the terrorist group’s telecommunications center and two bomb-laden cars in al-Jisr area in northern Fallujah, killing at least four Daesh terrorists in the process.

Separately, Oday al-Khidran, a commander of the Popular Mobilization units fighting alongside Iraqi security forces, said on Friday that they discovered the largest Daesh-dug tunnel network connecting different neighborhoods of Fallujah.

He said the terror group used the tunnels to minimize its losses and protect its front lines.

Iraqi military officials on Friday announced the death of three senior Daesh commanders in the northern city of Mosul — another larger city held by Daesh — during an air raid by Iraqi jet fighters.

Local news outlets cited a statement issued by the Iraqi Joint Operations Command as adding that the airstrikes also killed at least 11 terrorists who accompanied the commanders and demolished two of their vehicles.

<div>Friday prayers Slams Saudi Arabia for Blocking Iranians' Hajj Pilgrimage</div>

friday-prayers-slams-saudi-arabia-for-blocking-iranians-hajj-pilgrimagePublished in: Iran

Tehran's Provisional Friday Prayers Leader Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami censured Riyadh for its refusal to facilitate the travel of Iranian pilgrims to the Arab country for the upcoming Hajj, saying that the Saudi regime does not deserve to govern Hajj rituals.

The Iranian delegates and Hajj and Pilgrimage Organization have made efforts to dispatch Iranian pilgrims to Hajj rituals this year, but the Saudis have prevented their pilgrimage, Ayatollah Khatami said in an address to a huge gathering of worshipers here in Tehran on Friday.

“Their criminal Muftis say that it is Iranians who do not want to participate in Hajj; why do you lie?,” the cleric said, referring to recent claims by Saudi Muftis that the Iranian authorities are preventing their people from fulfilling their religious duty of Hajj pilgrimage.

He further pointed to the tragic incidents during last year’s Hajj season in Saudi Arabia, including the deadly crush of people in Mina, saying that the incidents proved that “the Al Saud does not deserve to run ” Hajj rituals.

Head of Iran’s Hajj and Pilgrimage Organization Saeed Ohadi and a number of other officials have in recent weeks held several rounds of talks with the Saudi side on sending Iranian pilgrims to this year’s Hajj.

In a speech earlier this month, Ohadi said in his talks with Saudi Hajj officials, he has warned them that Iran will not dispatch pilgrims if Saudi Arabia continues its approach to pilgrims’ security.

“The Hajj and Pilgrimage Organization offered them (Saudis) 20 practical solutions to ensure the security (of pilgrims),” he said at the time, adding that the Saudi side has not accepted the proposals.

They even have announced that no Iranian airplane is permitted to fly to Saudi Arabia, he stated.

More than 460 Iranians were among the thousands of pilgrims who died on September 24, 2015, in a crush in Mina, near Mecca, during the Hajj pilgrimage.

The incident marked the worst ever tragedy during Hajj.
