LAHORE: The Punjab home department has assured clerics of rectifying the Fourth Schedule to exclude the scholars from the list containing names of those who may cause law and order issue in the province.

The assurance came in a meeting between Home Minister Shaukat Javed and a delegation of the conglomerate of religious seminaries, led by Qari Hanif Jallandhury, here on Friday.

“All those Ulema will be excluded from the Fourth Schedule who have somehow been wrongly included in it and I’ll personally monitor the process,” he told the delegation.

Minister assures making hides collection easier for seminaries

He also assured the visitors that help would be extended in recognising seminaries as educational institutions, removing hurdles to register them, making easy the procedure for allowing them to collect sacrificial animals’ hides.

The minister also directed the home department, police and the CTD in attendance to come up with a unanimous seminary registration form.
