Punjab CM should answer over murder of Zainab: Sirajul Haq

Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) chief Sirajul Haq said on Thursday that Punjab Chief Minister (CM) Shehbaz Sharif should answer over the murder of seven-year-old Zainab.
Addressing the protesters in Kasur, the JI chief said that the city has been made the center of violence. He questioned why the government did not take any action when Zainab was missing for five days.
Sirajul Haq criticized Punjab Chief Minister for arriving at Zainab’s residence late night while saying that he should have come in the morning and had clarified the government’s position in the matter.
He demanded that the city leadership should tender resignation as they have lost the right to represent people. JI chief also insisted that not only the culprit but the DPO should be hanged publicly.
Shutter down strike against the brutal killing of Zainab after rape continues on second day in Kasur as all the markets and educational institutions are closed to mark protest.
Zainab was kidnapped six days ago from Road Kot when her parents left for Saudi Arabia to perform Umrah. The girl was strangled to death after being raped. Police officers recovered her body from a garbage heap near Zaki Ada.
Her funeral prayer was led by Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) Chief Tahir-ul-Qadri and offered by flocks of people.
