Operation against forcible Zakat, Fitra collection underway in Karachi

KARACHI: Operation of law enforcing agencies against forceful recovery of Zakat and Fitra is underway in Karachi with political parties totally rejecting this false perception.

Religious, political and welfare organizations use to collect Zakat and Fitra for charitable activities however; law enforcing agencies are seen active against its forcible collection. Traders are of the view that in the guise of forcible Zakat and Fitra, heavy amount was compiled from them in the past whereas this process has been minimized to a great extent in the ongoing year.

On the contrary, political parties have expressed concerns over the detention of their workers and volunteers on the charges of receiving the amount forcefully. Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) which has been most vulnerable to the accusations has not only entirely rejected the claims but has regarded such action as a hurdle for welfare activities.

On the other hand, leaders of Sunni Tehreek have stated that the party has excluded such workers who indulge in forcible collection of Fitra and Zakat and has imposed a ban on fundraising this year.

Traders’ community look satisfied from the current law and order situation in the metropolis but the political parties are showing reservations on such actions and are considering it a barrier in their welfare causes.   DNA
