Govt holding back Sindh Zakat Council fund since last three months: Bilawal Bhutto
03 November, 2017
KARACHI: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has lashed out at the PML-N government for holding back an amount of Rs 2 to 3 billion of the Sindh Zakat Council fund since last three months apparently without any reasons.
“This ugly act is tantamount to depriving Sindh’s 90,000 Zakat beneficiaries who are innocently looking for what is due from the society. The money has been collected and stashed into federal government accounts,” the PPP chairman stated during a meeting with Sindh Zakat Council Chairman Justice (r) Zahid Qurban Alvi and Zakat Council Karachi Chairman Khalid Lateef at the Bilawal House on Thursday. The Sindh Zakat Council delegation apprised the PPP chief about the process of reformation of the council, who appreciated the work being carried out by the organisation.
