Tough action against elements who fan sectarianism, vows PM Imran

Islamabad (Web Desk): Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday promised tough action against the elements who tried to ignite the flames of sectarianism in the country.


“I will be taking very tough action against them,” PM Khan said.

The premier thanked the nation for peacefully observing Ashura, but regretted that some elements had tried to ignite sectarian strife on the occasion.

“I want to thank our nation for the peaceful observing of Ashura in the country. However, unfortunately, information has come to me of elements who tried to ignite flames of sectarianism on this occasion and I will be taking very tough action against them,” PM Khan said in a tweet.

Youm-e-Ashur, the tenth of Muharram, was observed across the country on Sunday with solemnity and sanctity to pay homage to Hazrat Imam Hussain (RA) and his companions who sacrificed their lives for Islam at Karbala 1,400 years ago.
