LAHORE - People from all walks of life including politicians and human rights activists have condemned the murder of Justice Javed Iqbals parents, also expressing concern over growing lawlessness in the country. In their separate condolence messages, they condoled deaths with the bereaved family and demanded exemplary punishment to the accused. Expressing his deep shock and grief, acting Punjab Governor Rana Muhammad Iqbal said culprits will not be able to escape the hand of law for long. PPPs Punjab President Imtiaz Safdar Warraich while expressing sympathies with Justice Iqbal said that people were concerned over deteriorating law and order situation in Punjab where no body felt safe from dacoits and murderers. Punjab Minister for finance and Planning, Tanvir Ashraf Kaira strongly condemned the incident and condoled the deaths with the bereaved family. He prayed that Allah Almighty may rest the departed souls in eternal peace and grant courage to the bereaved family to bear this irreparable loss with fortitude. The Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP) also expressed deep shock and grief at the murder of parents of Justice Javed Iqbal, and condemned the killing as absolutely unconscionable. A statement issued on Wednesday said: HRCP is shocked at the brutal murder of Justice Javed Iqbals aged parents in a locality that is considered safe from criminal activities. We condole with the bereaved family. HRCP would not like to comment on the motives behind the absolutely unconscionable killing until the matter has been thoroughly investigated. However, if there is even the slightest indication that this is some kind of a message to the judiciary, that would be an even more sinister incident than the ghastly murders.
