ISLAMABAD – Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan has said that all those guilty of violating the sanctity of places of worship and of targeting minorities must be arrested and punished.
“I call on all Pakistanis to show respect and tolerance for each other and for all places of worship,” he said in a message on microblogging twitter website. “We condemn repeated attacks against Sikh places of worship and their holy book in Sindh,” he said.
The PTI leader said that all religious places must be respected and protected. In their protest inside the Parliament House in Islamabad, the protesters informed media that their gurdwaras in Karachi, Shikarpur and some other cities of Sindh province were allegedly being set on fire.
They asked Minister for Interior Affairs Chaudhry Nisar Ali to provide assurances regarding security of their gurdwaras. The protesters managed to enter the premises of the Parliament House by breaking the gate despite a heavy contingent of police personnel being present at the location.
