ISLAMABAD: Federal Information Minister, Senator Pervaiz Rashid Sunday branded the violent disruption of a former governor Punjab Salman Taseer’s death anniversary vigil in Lahore as insanity, Samaa reported. 

“Whatever happened at late Salman Taseer’s remembrance event is highly unfortunate. We cannot allow anyone to take law into their own hands like this,” Rashid said promising to serve justice on the perpetrators before long. 

Earlier in the day, a bunch of religious fanatics blitzed the members of civil society for commemorating Taseer’s death anniversary with a candlelight vigil and mediapersons for covering the event near Liberty Chowk.

Taseer was gunned down by his own guard for raising voice against the misuse of controversial blasphemy law in 2011.

The minister underscored that every person had an unalienable right to celebration and mourning.
