LAHORE: An enraged mob comprising hundreds of Takfiri Deobandi militants of Sipah-e-Sahaba (ASWJ-LeJ) torched dozens of houses located in a Christian-dominated neighbourhood of Lahore on Saturday, 9 March 2013. The ASWJ-LeJ mob was led by local leaders of PML-N, the party currently ruling the Punjab province under CM Shahbaz Sharif.
Media is obfuscating by describing PML-ASWJ terrorists as “angry mob”. Shame!
The violent Sunni Deobandi mob attacked the houses in Joseph Colony in Badami Bagh police precincts in the provincial capital following allegations of blasphemy against a Christian man. The man was booked under Section 295-C of the Pakistan Penal Code (PPC). It appeared that the man had been falsely accused of blasphemy but the police was forced to register a case to placate the ASWJ and PMLN leaders, a local police official said.
The violent mob gathered around Joseph Colony on Noor Road, led by Shafiq Ahmed Deobandi, who was in search of the accused Savan, alias Bubby. The mob attacked Savan’s house, partially burnt it and pelted it with stones. Other houses in the locality – home to about 150 Christian families – were also attacked. Many residents, including women and children, hastily fled to save themselves.
Savan could not be found. However, his father was caught and badly beaten. The vehicle of a pastor, who reached the area to inquire about the incident, was also damaged.
The episode began at 1 pm in the afternoon and did not conclude till the evening.
The police placated the mob by registering an FIR under section 295-C of the Pakistan Penal Code (death sentence) against Savan and ensuring that he would be given into their custody to decide his fate. They also took Chaman Masih into custody.
Speaking to a private television channel, Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah said the accused man was in police custody. Rana Sanullah Deobandi is known to be a key sponsor of ASWJ Takfiri Deobandis in Punjab on behalf of PMLN’s Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif. He has himself led a number of anti-Shia rallies in Punjab along with ASWJ head Ahmed Ludhianvi Deobandi.
Lahore Police silently kept watching while ASWJ militants led by PMLN leaders attacked and burnt Christian houses.

Shedding crocodile tears, Rana Sanaullah Deobandi of PMLN said all those involved in the arson would be arrested, adding that his government would try to rehabilitate the affected Christian families.
Apparently the situation went out of control when people reached the spot after offering prayers under Qari Saifullah Deobandi. Countless people had joined the mob, chanting slogans and throwing stones at the houses. Qari Saifullah Deobandi said that if they find Savan, they must cut him into pieces.
Human Liberation Commission of Pakistan Chairman Aslam Parvaiz Sahotra visited the site and told The Express Tribune that the police registered the FIR after bowing to the pressure of the mob. However, the police did not care to save houses and properties of Christians men, women and children.
James Rehmat, a Christian worker, openly accuses the PML-N government of actually patronising the mob. “Some top leaders of the N-League, including Malik Riaz (local MNA) led the procession. On Friday night, another local PML-N leader came and had banners put up against blasphemy,” he points upwards to freshly put up cloth banners saying ‘The penalty of blasphemy is only beheading’.
“But we don’t see any politicians or other higher ups in this area after this incident although a whole day has passed by. How is it that all these incidents against us happened during the Shahbaz-Nawaz government?”
This relays a reaction to the angry victims and they suddenly break out chanting slogans against the government, women beating their chests in anguish.
Bishop Akram Gill, of the Emmanuel Church also stands and makes an official complaint against the Sharif-led Punjab government. “The Shantinagar and Gojra incidents too happened during the Sharifs’ rule. How is it that when they are not in power, we tend to live more peacefully? Source: http://dawn.com/2013/03/10/cries-for-a-lost-homeland/
Attacks on Christians are not uncommon in Punjab. In the past PMLN and ASWJ thugs attacked and burnt dozens of houses of Christian community in Gojra, Shanti Nagar, Faisalabad and other areas.
We demand Shahbaz Sharif to be hanged along with Malik Ishaq and Akram Lahori Group of Fake Liberals.
Killers of Christians in Shanti Nagar, Ahmadis in Lahore and Shias in Rawalpindin, Chakwal and Khanpur still roam free in Punjab province. Recently, anti-Shia threats are being distributed to Shia Muslims houses in Lahore: http://shar.es/enu4n
LeJ-ASWJ incites violence. Christian houses set on fire in Lahore.
Maulana Fazlur Rehman Deobandi, Ahmed Ludhianvi Deobandi and others offer funeral prayer of Pakistan’s minorities. Yeh dehshat gardi naheen, bud amni hai.
Shahbaz Sharif and his Fake Liberals are hiding the fact those attacking Christians in Lahore are PMLN & ASWJ Takfiri Deobandi goons.
Taliban, terrorists, extremists, LeJ are vague terms used by ISI, right-wing & Fake Liberals. The ASWJ killers are right in front of us.
Our question to CM Shehbaz: How many ASWJ terrorists were arrested for Christian massacre in Gojra? Ahmadi massacre in Lahore? #ShiaGenocide in Khanpur, Chakwal and Rawalpindi?
Shame on pro-establishment Fake Liberals who routinely flatter Shahbaz Sharif but remain silent on attacks on Christians by PMLN-ASWJ goons
We condemn @CMShehbaz & PMLN-sponsored Sipah Sahaba ASWJ terrorists on their role in torching of a Christian church in Lahore Pakistan
Burning down of Christians’ homes is a conspiracy to discredit Punjab Govt. It’s nothing to do with PMLN’s alliance with known terrorists.

Rana Sanaullah and Malik Ishaq are nothing but the true ugly face of Shahbaz Sharif and his flatterers
Do we need any more prove that Punjab is the hub of Saudi Funded Deobandi extremism & terrorism in #Pakistan
In the meanwhile, Akram Lahori’s NGO-Liberal niece and other Fake Liberals and paid consultants continue to flatter CM Shehbaz.

In the meanwhile, another pro-establishment fake liberal is busy in providing legitimacy to ISI-backed Salafist terrorists of Lashkar-e-Taiba aka Jamaat-ud-Dawa, urging them to work for relief of Christian community in Lahore:
