PML-N backstabs the Christian community again

While Shahbaz Sharif led PML-N government has practically refused to punish the PMLN-ASWJ leaders and militants involved in attacks on Christians in Gorja or Joseph Colony Lahore, its intentions about financial compensation of the victims are equally dubious. Shaheed-e-Haq Shabaz Bhatti clearly held Sipah Sahaba Talibaan of ASWJ LEJ responsible for Gojra incident. Instead of holding those these people to account PMLN has made electoral alliances and developed very thick ties.

LAHORE: The cheques distributed among victims of the Joseph Colony attack by the Punjab government bounced, Express News reported Thursday.

Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif had announced Rs0.5 million in compensation for each of those affected in the mob attack. However, the 265 cheques distributed by the government have bounced.

According to reports, the finance ministry had issued the amount promised. When the cheques bounced, the victims started protesting.

On March 9, an over 3,000-strong mob had set ablaze more than 150 houses of Christians in the Joseph Colony over alleged blasphemous remarks against Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) by Sawan Masih, a 28-year-old Christian sanitation worker.

The patronage of terrorists by PML-N has been well documented in the Joseph Colony incident.

After burning more than 170 house of poor Christian community in Lahore’s Badami Bagh area, Deobandi militants of the Sipah-e-Sahaba (currently operating as Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat ASWJ aka Lashkar-e-Jhangvi LeJ under the patronage of Shahbaz Sharif-led PML-N government in the Punjab) are inciting Deobandi and other Sunni Muslims to further violence against innocent Christian community.

Here’s one of several anti-Christian hate posts published on the Ulma-e-Deoband, Pakistan’s largest Deobanid web portal, known for links with Al Qaeda, ASWJ-LeJ (led by Malik Ishaq Deobandi and Ahmed Ludhianvi Deobandi), JUI (led by Fazlur Rehman Deobandi) and PML-N (led by Nawaz Sharif). https://lubpak.net/archives/249723

  • Pakistan has around 144 districts and every district has 4/5 so called political families / local feudal lords. One can check their historical background, doesn’t matter if the present generation is educated or little sophisticated. Since independence these families are in power except short period of ZA Bhutto with little participation of middle class. Majority seats in Parliament are from Rural areas and Urban area politicians have the same feudal attitude. Most of these feudal run parallel government in whole district (in tehsils & villages) controlling police and revenue (thana & Kacheri). Even the justice department is also influenced by them in one way or the other by dictation to lawyers and judges.This elite ruling class is corrupt, cruel, law beaker and criminal in many cases. Nothing will change in Pakistan as long as the Development Funds are being distributed among the elected elite. Politics is the highest profitable business of few hundred people in the country. http://www.multantimes.com
