Allama Yousaf Husain’s residence is attached to Jamia Masjid Noor-e-Iman in Nazimabad where he is a prayer leader, he said.
MWM leader Ahmed Iqbal Rizvi in a statement, while condemning Husain’s detention, said that “killings of the mourners and detentions of Shia leaders were a conspiracy to foil Karachi operation.”
A police spokesperson said that several people were detained during ‘combing and search operations’ in different parts of the city.
