ISLAMABAD - President Asif Ali Zardari has expressed serious concern over the incident occurred at village Korian, Toba Tek Singh district, wherein the houses of some Christian residents were reportedly set on fire, and called for a report from the Punjab government. Spokesperson to the President, former senator Farhatullah Babar, Friday said that Zardari took serious note of the media reports of the incident and asked the provincial government to send him a report in that regard and ensure the security of life and property of the villagers. The President also advised the federal government to send Minister for Minorities Shahbaz Bhatti to express sympathies with the victims. He said that there were laws of the land to deal with complaints and accusations against anyone and no one should be allowed to take the law into ones own hands to settle problems. It is against the spirit of Islam and the norms of a civilised society when laws are taken into ones own hands and members of the minority community are vandalised for real or imagined crimes, the President said. He asked for thorough investigation into the incident and bringing the culprits to justice in accordance with the law. The President also took notice of the reports that some lawyers manhandled a policeman and some journalists, and called for a report from the provincial government. The President called for tolerance and reconciliation, adding that tolerance for plurality and respect for others views were part of a democratic culture. It is, therefore, our responsibility to promote democratic values and culture as a necessary tool of promoting tolerance and harmony, the President further said.
