Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat(ASWJ) Chief Maulana Muhammad Ahmad Ludhianvi has demanded immediate arrest of the accused involved in burning of an effigy of Hazrat Umer (RA) in Chak 331/JB on January 9.

Addressing a press conference here in Darul Aloom Eidgah on Thursday, the ASWJ chief said that the strike call given for Thursday against the desecration was withdrawn due to assurance by DSP Rao Asif Zaman that action would be taken against the accused after an inquiry till Sunday. Sunni Tehreek District President Maulana Munem Siddiqi, JUI-F District Ameer Maulana Talha Abbasi, JAH District leader Maulana Sheikhain Toheedi, Muttahida Ulema Council leader Maulana Abid Farooqi and Anjuman-e-Tajiran General Secretary Mian Mohsin Idrees were also present.
