United we stand - our aim... "Justice"!

In a number of recent protests leading voices from the civil rights movements of Pakistan are collaborating for justice for Robert Danish, the purported victim of a "Murder in Custody". Brother Asif Mall reports (sic):

*Breaking News: Christian MNA of Pakistan Akram Masih Gill arrested, condemnation *

The Human Liberation Commission of Pakistan (HLCP) has protested against the alleged suicide of a Christian boy, Danish Masih, in police custody in Central Jail Sialkot.

Addressing the protesters in front of the Lahore Press Club (LPC), HLCP Chairman Aslam Pervez Sahotra said that a fake blasphemy case was registered against Danish just because of bad blood and he was killed in the jail.

He said why the government had not brought into the books the real culprits in such cases.

He demanded severe punishment to the culprits in this case.

Meanwhile, *PML-Q Minority Wing President Akram Masih Gill has been arrested by police authorities, while he was attending Danish Masih’s funeral in
Sialkot.* Earlier he alleged that jail staff had killed Robert Danish Masih, an accused of blasphemy, in Central Jail Sialkot.

According to a press statement issued on Tuesday, Akram said that minorities were being victimised under the garb of Blasphemy Law. He said that Danish was sent to jail on false charges of blasphemy where he was tortured to death by the jail staff.

He said that the Christians could not think of committing blasphemy of the Holy Quran. He demanded the government amend the Blasphemy Law.

Meanwhile, the National Commission for Justice and Peace (NCJP) has said that the extra judicial murder of Fanish Robert, accused of blasphemy in Sialkot, was sheer negligence of the government.

In a press release on Tuesday, NCJP condemned the killing and said that they refused to accept the version of the local authorities that he committed suicide spontaneously after he was shifted to jail from police lock up.

They demanded a credible probe and registration of a case under murder charges in this regard.

They demanded that all those involved directly or indirectly in the murder of the innocent youth should be brought to justice.
