Several spokesmen of government of Pakistan announced that Maulana Abdul Aziz, Khateeb Lal Masjid (Chief Cleric of Red Mosque) tried to escape from the mosque clad in black Burqa (women’s veil that covers whole body) and was arrested by the armed forces undertaking military operation on the mosque.
Next day, Pakistan Official Television relayed a so-called interview with Maulana Abdul Aziz and presented him clad in black Burqa.
Video of this so-called interview can be seen at the following link.
The organizer of the show and other government officials did not seem to be in coordination because later a video clip was released by the government authorities which gave a glimpse of the moment when Maulana Abdul Aziz was arrested. This video bellied the claim of the government of Pakistan because at the time of arrest Maulana Abdul Aziz was wearing white long shirt )men’s dress) and not black Burqa. The video can be seen at the following link:
It appears from the arrest video that Maulana Abdul Aziz was not aware that he was being arrested. This proves the claim made by his brother (who was later killed in the military operation) and another religious scholar, who was member of the negotiating team, that Maulana Abdul Aziz was asked to come out of the mosque for negotiations but was arrested in stead.
