Islamabad: The PPP Human Rights Cell strongly condemned attack on the Christian community in Lahore and called upon Punjab government to take action against the culprits.

We condemned the mob attack on Christian neighbourhood, on torching and burning of their homes following allegations of blasphemy.

This is not the first time that such madness has unfolded in Punjab. Repeatedly Christian villages have been targeted on the pretext of false accusations and we fear this to be the result of provincial government’s failure to tackle extremism, it stated in press release.

There have been repeated demands for the Punjab government to identify and take action against the extremists.
