The agencies have managed to get hold of yet another person who was involved in May 9 riots, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Sunday.
Brother of Ashiq, the miscreant, on the other hand, has denounced the incidents of violence.
He has said that his brother had nothing to do with politics. “The narrative that a political party built during the last one year poisoned him against the Pakistan Army,” he has said, adding, “He was a sportsman. But sadly he fell victim to anti-state propaganda.”
He is of the view that violence in politics does not pay off. “This only ruins our future,” he has said, adding, “I want to give a message to the youth that Pakistan is our country and Pakistan Army is our army that always remains on its toes to defend us.”
Ashiq’s brother has said destroying properties and setting them on fire is of no use.
Visitors say shocked over Jinnah House’s vandalism
On the other hand, while expressing deep sorrow over the vandalism of Jinnah House in Lahore, people belonging to different walks of life, in their joint declaration, have demanded stern action against the perpetrators of these crimes.
The declaration reads that today during their visit to the Jinnah House, they were shocked to see that some miscreants had set their own Quaid’s home on fire.
They have further said that defiling of memorials of army’s martyrs is not acceptable at any cost.
The visitors have expressed the resolve to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the armed forces of Pakistan all their lives. “What could be more tragic that the miscreants, during their attack on the Jinnah House, even burnt the national flag,” reads the declaration.
