HAFIZABAD-Sunni Ittehad Council President Maulana Badaruz Zaman Tarar has warned that if capital punishment was not restored, the rulers would face the wrath of Almighty Allah and the Muslims.

Addressing a press conference, he said that the people of Pakistan would not allow any government to make rules against Islamic injunctions to please their masters. He regretted the government decision to continue moratorium on the implementation of death penalty and termed it violation of Islamic law and the Constitution of Pakistan. He demanded withdrawal of the decision otherwise the SIT would give tough time to the government.

EID PLAN: Measures have been taken to maintain peace in the district during Eidul Azha days, said DCO Mansoor Qadir and DPO Muhammad Zubair Drashak.
