Students from seminaries in the name of acquiring jobs in Arab countries are found to be exporting extremism and mercenaries from Pakistan, a statement issued insinuates.

Technical Education and Vocational Training Authority (TEVTA) Chairman Irfan Qaiser Sheikh, while talking to reporters in Chiniot, said they have already trained around 14,000 students across seminaries in Punjab with technical education and another 30,000 are enlisted. He said that there remains a demand for technical staff in Saudi Arab and Qatar.

Seminary students are reportedly traveling from Pakistan to Saudi Arab and Qatar, later to be enlisting themselves in Al-Qaeda and ISIS fighting a war for Arab’s vested interests. Many a allegations have been implied on Pakistan regarding the same from foreign intel sources, international media and human rights organizations. Captured militants from Yemen, Iraq and Syria have been found to be of Pakistan, maligning Pakistan’s reputation across the globe.

Journalists and critics plead security agencies across Pakistan to look into this avenue, investigating these travels in the name of work-force for particular Arab countries.
