Pakistan People’s Party human rights cell seeks action against Church attackers
The Human Rights Cell of Pakistan People’s Party on Sunday strongly condemned the burning of a Church by the violent elements protesting the blasphemous film and called for strict action against the perpetrators.
“This is a conspiracy to give a bad name to Muslims and to the collective call for a day to observe national solidarity and unity,” said Central Co-ordinator PPP Human Rights Cell Dr Nafisa Shah.
The HR cell also condemned the violence that led to the loss of innocent lives, besides burning of private and public property that led to the loss of millions.
“On this day, the government wanted to demonstrate national unity and all of Pakistan including religious minorities supported this cause,” she said.
She said it was to be a solemn day to demonstrate to the world, the love and respect for the Holy Prophet (PBUH) and to register a protest against the obnoxious material on the YouTube that humiliated a world religion and conspires to inflame the world.
She said the Muslims of Pakistan have and will reject these acts designed to pit the world religions and civilisations against each other.
The PPP Human Rights cell called upon the authorities to take severe action against all the miscreants that have used Islam to perpetuate violence on life and property in the country and to take special measures to protect religious minorities.
