Target killing of women alarming sign for society: APML

KARACHI: All Pakistan Muslim League APML has condemned the brutal murder of Orangi Pilot Project OPP Director and eminent social worker Parveen Rehman.

APML Central Information Secretary Aasia Ishaque said in a statement that the target killing of the women was a sad incident and an alarming sign for the society. The murder of Parveen was also a manifest of failure of the government as the law enforcement agencies had failed to protect the defenceless citizens from the target killers. “This murder has brought a very bad name to the country.

Paying homage to the victim woman, APML leader said that Parveen was a pillar of struggle for the people of the largest spatial settlement in Asia, Orangi Town. She was not an ordinary person, hence she deserved due security protocol, which the government did not provide.

She said that the killing of th woman was a manifest that the terrorists had penetrated everywhere in the society and it was too a failure of the government that could not prevent the criminals and terrorists from establishing strong dens in the city of Karachi, the economic hub of the country.

Aasia demanded of the government that it should form a judicial commission to look into the causes of her killing. “Rehman should be given a civil award for the services she had delivered. The government should also devise a strategy for foolproof security of leading human rights activists and social workers,” she concluded.
