ISLAMABAD – Lal Masjid spokesman denied government claims about written apology of Maulana Abdul Aziz For his statement on Peshawar School Attack, PakistanTribe reported.
Government had claimed that Maulana Abdul Aziz had issued a written apology for his words spoken when he was asked about Peshawar School Attack.
Denying the governmental claim, spokesman of Lal Masjid said that nothing has happened like this.
Spokesperson Hafiz Ehtisham Ahmed that Maulana Abdul Aziz has not submitted any written apology to the police and rejected the claim made by Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan that Aziz has tendered a written apology as “baseless”.
“It is a baseless story that there is a written apology. Was there a case against him regarding his APS remarks in the police? Then why should he submit an apology to the police?” the spokesperson said.
Ehtisham said that Maulana Aziz had apologised on a private news channel a day or two after making the statement about the APS attack, and added, “There is no need for another apology after that.”
“Maulana Aziz clearly said that the attack on APS Peshawar was a grave tragedy and such incidents should not happen in the future. Does this statement by him not count as condemnation?” said the spokesperson.
