Naya Pakistan does not believe in bloodshed: Afridi


ISLAMABAD: Reiterating the earlier government’s stance that there would no compromise on writ of state, Minister of State for Interior Shehryar Afridi Thursday vowed that the government would not spare the miscreants who were involved in damaging public and private properties during protest against Aasia Bibi’s acquittal.
He was speaking at the Senate session, which was chaired by chairman Sadiq Sanjrani. He said that the government has signed deal with the protesters as Naya Pakistan does not believe in bloodshed. However, he warned that the government would make an example out of anyone who will try to take the law into their own hands.
Not a single drop of blood spilled during three days protest, he said, adding that the government would not use bullets against its own citizen, but would embrace them and talk to them.
He also claimed that it was political workers from other parties that had come out on the streets and resorted to violence. “We showed TLP the footage of the people being violent on the streets and they distanced themselves from the people in the video.”
“We met with the TLP leadership yesterday and I will soon brief the prime minister on what transpired during the meeting.”
“The people who challenge the writ of the state and take the law into their own hands will not be given any concessions,” he maintained.
