KARACHI: Special Representative to the Prime Minister on Religious Harmony Maulana Tahir Ashrafi on Tuesday condemned the incidents of torture amid protests held by the Tehreek e Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) across Pakistan.
“Damaging public property and any kind of torture committed by anyone is condemnable,” Tahir Ashrafi said while talking to ARY News.
He said being a human, nobody had the right to beat another man. Issues were always resolved through negotiations and talks, he maintained.
The PM’s representative said policemen were also our brothers, so they should not be treated badly. He said the government supported TLP’s demands regarding Khatam e Nabuwwat (SAWW).
He also said the PM had voiced his concerns about Islamophobia all over the world.
On the other hand, a meeting chaired by Interior Minister Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed was held in Islamabad. The inspector general of Islamabad, Federal Minister for Religious Affairs Noor ul Haq Qadri, and chief commissioner also attended the meeting among others.
Sources said the forum decided to take strict action against the people who were blocking main arteries and violating the law in Islamabad.
