Christian group demands action against Zafarullah

A Joint Christian Action Committee of Rawalpindi and Islamabad has submitted an application to the Aabpara Police Station for the registration of a first information report (FIR) against Barrister Zafarullah Khan for his comparison between Nawaz Sharif and Jesus Christ.

Barrister Zafarullah also resembled Imran Khan to Judas, according to the application which recounts the press conference on July 10 by federal ministers where Barrister Zafarullah drew parallels between Nawaz Sharif and Jesus Christ and thus hurt the feelings of the Christian community.

The group demands that an FIR be registered under relevant sections of the Pakistan Penal Code and appropriate action be taken against him and be punished accordingly. The application also warned that failure to do so would end in Christians protesting all over the country. The application is signed by committee president Akram Waqar Gill, Samuel Yaqoob Billo, Javaid Akhtar Bhatti and Pastor Yaqoob Masih.
