As media reports claimed that a mosque in Palwal district of Haryana was built with funds from the terrorist group Lashkar-e-Tayyeba (LeT), Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Monday said only a proper investigation could throw light on the matter.
The reports claimed that the mosque had come under the scanner of security agencies after it was found that it was allegedly built with funds from the LeT.
“This issue has come to our notice. But only after investigations…What kind of issue it is (will be known) and whatever action will
be needed, we will do that,” Khattar told reporters in Palwal when asked for his comments on the issue.
He said the Government’s job is “to maintain a sense of security in society and for this, if anyone does any wrongdoing, if anyone commits a crime, we will use any agency needed for investigations. But there is no question of misuse or targeting anyone.” At a Press conference in Chandigarh, senior Congress leader Randeep Singh Surjewala, when asked to comment on the matter, said, “If it is true, then it is worrisome”.
