Following orders by the Punjab government, district administration of Rawalpindi took control of a seminary and four dispensaries run by Saeed-linked Jamaat-ud-Dawa and Falah-i-Insaniat Foundation.


The seminary has been handed over to the Auqaf department which controls the religious properties, Dawn reported. The paper reported that the provincial government las Friday directed the Auqaf department to take control of the seminaries.
