Attack on the Christian community in broad daylight is a flagrant failure of the Punjab government
The Founder and Leader of Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) Mr Altaf Hussain has strongly condemned the attack on a residential colony of the Christian community in Lahore and burning of their properties. He termed the incident a flagrant failure of the Punjab government. He also expressed complete solidarity and sympathies to the Christian family on the outrageous incident.
Mr Hussain said that the Christian community was attacked in a similar incident in Gojra town in the Punjab province. A Church was burned down and houses of people belonging to the Christian community were set on fire. The same history has been repeated today in the Badami Bagh Noor Mohalla of Lahore.
Mr Hussain asked what the rulers, administration, police and law-enforcing agencies were doing when hundreds of houses were being burnt in Lahore in broad daylight. He asked why the attackers could not be stopped.
Mr Hussain said that every Muslim considers it his duty to protect the honour of the Prophet (PBUH). He wanted to know if Islam gave the permission to attack a colony of the Christian community on the bases of allegations levelled by an individual.
