Another important event that took place was the immense pressure of Government of punjab province on the administration of Muhammadi masjid Gulberg,Lahore.
Now this is something very technical.
First of all,you guys should know about the speaker who was banned to recite majlis.
His name is Syed jawaad naqvi.He is very famous in iran as well as pakistan and he is principle of an islamic seminary here in lahore.He used to teach philosophy in Qum,iran.
He has also delivered several lectures to the youth of iran and baseejis.He wrote a book on velvet revolution which is quite famous in iran.
He has wrote several books in urdu too.He is student of Ayatullah Jawaadi Amoli.
Now the thing is,this guy never fear of anyone and criticizes the wrong policies of government and other institutions bravely.
He was supposed to recite 10 majalis in that specific mosque.He spoke openly in his first majlis.
i was in majlis myself.
you can watch the majlis here
After 1st majlis authorities pressurized mosque's administration to stop the syed.Few guys who were in administration met with Syed Jawaad Naqvi and discussed their issues and asked him to not to say something against govt,or politicians or army or anyone and just recite what is on books and not to talk about current affairs and stuff like that but he refused.
He recited his 2nd majlis at the same place.
Before the start of his 3rd majlis,his security guard who was going in the premises of mosque with his concealed weapon was stopped by police.Police claimed he was breaching the section 144 which states it is illegal to showcase any weapon.But the security guard said that he was carrying it under his shirt.Long story short,police arrested him but when the guys who were attending majlis knew about this,they protested and police had to free the guy.they still have his weapon.
After this incident police talked to administration and after their talks administration refused to accommodate syed jawaad naqvi for further majalis.There was huge protests against the weak behavior of mosque's administration.
Here is video of protest in masjid where the youth is chanting the slogans of Labbyk Ya Hussain and Hihaat minna zilla and demanding to listen to syed jawaad naqvi and none else.They were angry on the behavior of administration who was agreeing with punjab govt.
He is continuing with his other majalis as scheduled in Aale imran school,lahore.
