KARACHI: Surendar Valasai, adviser on Minority Affairs to PPP Patron-In-Chief Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, has strongly condemned the reported kidnapping and burning alive of a minority Hindu Dalit shop owner Hans Ram in Punjab’s Bahawalpur district on Friday.
In a press release, Surendar Valasai said it is horrific that mobs and criminals have started kidnapping and burning the minority human beings in Punjab while its Chief Minister keeps on drumming mantra of so-called good governance. He said following the demolition of a Church in Okara under the very nose of Punjab administration, the criminal elements have started burning minority alive which is very dangerous trend and PML-N government in Punjab and Islamabad cannot be absolved for its failure to protect the minorities and their worship places.
PPP leader demanded that Supreme Court should take notice and hold an inquiry by a judge of High Court into the growing incidents of violence against minorities in Punjab and order security to them.
