Recently an anti-terrorism court in Lahore sentenced a prayer leader for spreading hate against a religious sect. The act comes in a positive light, as curbing the spreading of hatred is the first step towards eradicating extremism. The sentencing of five year jail, would act as a deterrent. The job of a prayer leader should be to teach harmony and unity for the survival of the social fabric in the country. People who ignite hatred should be condemned and punished.
