PTI, Bilawal condemn mob attack on Ahmedi worship place in Sialkot

Pakistan’s two main opposition parties — the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) — have condemned the mob attack on a sacred Ahmedi site and worship place in Sialkot.

A mob— allegedly comprising members of the Tehreek-e-Labbaik Ya Rasool Allah (TRLY) and PTI— in connivance with the Tehsil Municipal Administration (TMA) and police officials attacked an Ahmedi place of worship and a sacred site in the wee hours of Thursday.

A video making rounds on the social media shows the mob demolishing the place of worship, and another video shows a PTI member Hamid Raza thanking the TMA, DPO Sialkot and district commissioner for their “support” in demolishing the Ahmedi property.

On its official Twitter handle, the PTI condemned the attack and wrote: “PTI strongly condemns the targetting of Ahmedis in Sialkot. We demand the Punjab Govt to take severe action against whoever involved in this heinous crime and protect the rights of all religious minorities.

Furthermore, PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto also condemned the attack by stating, “Attack on Ahmedi place of worship outrageous & unacceptable. PPP raised the issue in Senate & referred to HR committee. Perpetrators must be brought to justice. If a nation’s greatness is judged on how it treats its weakest members, the continuation of such acts embarrasses us all”.
