      Religious leader held near Gilgit
      http://www.dawn.com/2006/01/01/top18.htm


      GILGIT, Dec 31: Police on Friday arrested a religious leader who was
      addressing a gathering of his followers in Jalalabad, some 30
      kilometres east of Gilgit.

      Police sources said Shaikh Ghulam Mohiyuddin was detained on the
      charge of disturbing the peace. His arrest took place in the
      presence of hundreds of his followers.

      The sources said police had earlier detained another religious
      leader Shaikh Nasir Hussain Zamani on the same charge. Independent
      sources said that both the religious leaders had appealed for calm
      when their followers protested against the police action.

      Meanwhile, the Imamia Council of Gilgit said the police action
      against the two religious leaders was an attempt to sabotage the
      peace parleys in Gilgit. However, official sources said religious
      leaders had been warned about holding sectarian gatherings in the
      greater interest of sectarian harmony in the area.
