â€œMalik Ishaq, a notorious terrorist of the banned Lashkar-e-Jhangvi has been given protection and protocol by Punjab government,â€ said Javad Jafri, divisional chapter president of ISO Multan.
Yafas Naveed Hashmi and other ISO officials also spoke. They said that Punjab government was responsible for the tragedy. They said that Malik Ishaq was being provided security and innocent citizens were being denied security and safety. They said it is Punjab governmentâ€™s patronage that encouraged terrorist to perpetrate their heinous crimes.
They cited that high police official had not admitted it was a bomb blast. Instead, he tried to absolve himself saying that alam pak had touched wires or transformer exploded due to sparking. Later, he had to admit the factual position.
