Chief minister trying to save alleged blasphemer, says JI leader

Addressing a press conference at Peshawar Press Club, he said the arrival of bodies of martyred Chitrali youth continued in Chitral and the graves hoisted with the national flags littered every nook and corner of valley. He said Chief Minister Pervez Khattak and the DPO Chitral were deliberately trying to save blasphemy accused Rashid which was not acceptable for the people of Chitral. He said after the blasphemy incident in Shahi Masjid of Chitral on April 21,  scores of people were arrested and some of them charged with section 6 and 7 of the Anti-Terrorism Act 1997 even though no police person was injured by the attack on the Chitral police station by the angry people. He said as many as 22 people booked under terror charges are still languishing for no crime in the jail. He said if attacking a government building was an act of terrorism, a case under 7ATA should also be registered against the chief minister for inciting his party workers to attack a WAPDA office and causing damages to the public property. Double standard in the implementation of the in the province could be a sign of injustice not of a change, he added. He warned the provincial government that if the terror and 324 sections were not dropped against the arrested people, it would  lead to the downfall of the government and very soon a Tehreek Asmat-e-Khatme nabawwat would be launched. He said both the Sunni and Ismaili communities of Chitral would make the tehreek a success and would not en their strike till the arrested people were released and the alleged blasphemer hanged.]]>
