HYDERABAD. January 4, 2003(PPI): All Pakistan Minority Alliance has demanded arrest of the terrorists who had attacked Church in Daska district Sialkot on Christmas day in which invaluable lives were lost and many persons were injured. Addressing new
Saleem Khokhar and Michael Javed made it clear that they were the patriotic citizens of Pakistan since their forefathers but they were being made target by the terrorists to whom government has failed to bust. They expressed that if the terrorism against minorities was not stopped it will prove danger for them. They observed that few terrorists were involved in extremist religious fanaticism to create bad name for Pakistan at international level and to make the country unstable by weakening its foundation on national level. They said the life and death of minorities is with Pakistan and demanded to stop pushing them with the wall. The leaders of minorities said that they have come to conclusion that the government has less interest in protecting the lives and properties of minorities and has given licenses to terrorists for killing innocent people due to which not a single killer has so far been arrested.
They said that they had thought that it was un-elected government, which had failed to provide security to minorities, but now they see that present government, which is run by remote control, has also failed. They observed that the national and secular minded liberal political parties were being pushed to wall and that new experiments were being made in Pakistan and Sindh to play with the solidarity of country.
The leaders of All Pakistan Minority Alliance said that they have been fed up by taking their dead bodies from Churches, hospitals, schools and their offices. They said that by not arresting the killers on one hand and violation of the rights of Sindh on the other was dangerous to survival and solidarity of Pakistan.
At the end they called upon workers of APMA "to join hands with Pakistan Peoples Party inn celebrating the birth day of former Prime Minister Shaheed Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto" to whom they called as great leader of Pakistan and third world.
