THE violence in Gojra had hardly subsided that another incident of alleged desecration of the Holy Quran occurred in Muridke on Tuesday left two people dead and four others injured, some of them seriously. The local administration was caught napping when the workers of a factory attacked their owner on the instigation of one of their colleagues, who turned a personal dispute into communal violence that can further flare up if the culprits are not brought to justice. Punjab Chief Minister Mian Shahbaz Sharif has ordered an enquiry into the tragic incident and directed the local authorities to file a report at the earliest. This is good. But it needs to be kept in mind that the incident is too sensitive to be left to the committee and wait for its findings. The Gojra incident is a stark reminder that administrative lapses can accentuate communal unrest in the province where minorities feel more insecure now than at any time in the past. The government has to deal with this situation effectively. Those involved in committing the mayhem must be immediately arrested, challaned and produced before the court for trial. It is also time to punish the delinquent police officers.
