LAHORE - Punjab Governor Chaudhary Sarwar has stressed the need for strictly implementing the law to curb terrorism and extremism in the country as their elimination is a guarantee to the progress and power to the weak class of the society.

Talking to Hindus at the office of Hindu Council on Thursday, the governor expressed concerns over the excesses being done to the minorities and added that Shahbaz Sharif took Kot Radha Kishan killing of Christian couple as a test case and is determined to award due punishment to the culprits and do justice with the minority members.

He said such an example would be set through the instant case that no one in future would dare to maltreat the minority members. He said terrorisms in any form and anywhere in the country is condemnable and Pakistan army is performing a commendable job to end that menace. The whole nation stands behind the Pak Army in its battle against the militants and miscreants, he added.

The governor said abdication of the path set by the Holy Prophet (SAW) for leading a peaceful life in the world as well the message of Quaid-e-Azam and Allama Iqbal is a factor of social depravity we have fallen in today.

Replying to a question he said at a time when the country is already confronting problems of IDPs, flood-affectees, border tension etc, we should all try to settle down out matters through peaceful means and talks instead of taking to the course of agitation and protest.

President of the Council Dr Ramesh Kumar on the occasion briefed the Governor about the body and the problems being faced by eight million Hindus of Pakistan.
