According to details, a ceremony was organized at Lahore’s Liberty Chowk paying tribute to Salman Taseer on account of his death anniversary. A large number of masses from different walks of life participated in the ceremony to commemorate the slain governor of Punjab.
As soon as the prayers were held after lighting candles in Taseer’s memory, unknown persons wielding batons attacked the participants and torn apart the posters of the slain governor.
The attackers not only tortured the news men at the spot, but also misbehaved with the members of the civil society and the women there.
In reaction to the incident, an case has been filed in the Gulberg police station seeking registration of an FIR against the workers of Sunni Tehreek.
Following the incident, scores of masses regathered at the Liberty Chowk and again lit candles in memory of Salman Taseer.
