Last week, government authorities had signed an agreement with Maulana Aziz, allotting him 20 Kanals of land for the construction of Jamia Hafsa in return of eviction of Lal Masjid. The agreement followed three days of negotiations and was facilitated by banned outfit Ahl-e-Sunnat Wal Jamaat (ASWJ).
