Pathankot attack: Pakistan raids, shuts down several Jaish seminaries
Pathankot attack: Pakistan raids, shuts down several Jaish seminaries




LAHORE: Pakistani authorities have shut down several religious schools run by the Jaish-e-Mohammad militant group accused of masterminding an attack this month on the IAF airbase in Pathankot, Rana Sanaullah, the law minister of the Punjab province, said on Friday. The crackdown in Punjab province, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's power base and the headquarters of Jaish-e-Mohammad, follows the arrest this week of several members of the militant group, including its leader, Maulana Masood Azhar, an Islamist hardliner and long-time foe of India. Pakistan has said it is clamping down on Azhar's group, which India has long accused Pakistani authorities of tolerating, while it investigates Indian assertions that the January 2 attack on the Pathankot airbase was the work of the Pakistan-based militants,  according to Times of India.
