ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Peoples Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Wednesday strongly condemned the ghastly murder of a woman teacher Maria by a mob in Murree and accused Punjab government and its chief minister for neglecting atrocities against women in the province. According to reports, a teenage female teacher, who was burned alive by a mob in Murree, succumbed to her injuries in hospital. The mob had barged into her house, sprinkled petrol on her and set her ablaze. The PPP chairman said that such horrific crimes are on the rise in the Punjab province in the absence of effective legislation. He criticised the province’s chief minister and his cabinet for ignoring the plight of women.He pointed out that another woman was drugged, strangled and burnt in a Suzuki van in Abbottabad last month by a Jirga but the Punjab government merely took superficial actions while the dreadful violence showed no signs of abating. He said that such mayhem against women in the country’s largest province was embarrassing, and something a PPP would never tolerate. “We want effective legislation and administrative tools against such cowardly attacks on women,” he said. Bilawal demanded stern action against the mob and said each culprit should be made an example out of to avoid such reprehensible atrocities happening again.Chaudry Nisar: In a tweet, Bilawal said that Interior Minister Chaudhary Nisar Ali Khan has failed in his plan to become the prime minister of the country, adding that it was not appropriate to take political advantage of the prime minister’s illness, and called Chaudhary Nisar’s ploy ‘desperate’.
