GMA’s Chief Executive, Manassi Bernard while extending his condolences to the bereaved family said: “Attacks on minority politicians have become the norm of the day and Pakistan Government has been unable to protect it’s own citizens regardless of their position.

“Anyone can kill anyone and walk free. For minorities it is even more a horror” said Mr Bernard.

We demand Prime Minister of Pakistan Nawaz Sharif, for the immediate arrest of the assassin  and prosecute  him as soon as possible before this tragic incident too gets a forgotten story like that of Shahbaz Bhatti, the federal minister for minorities who was shot dead by extremist group on March, 2011 whose murderers are still scot-free.
