For those who aren’t aware of the brutal barbarian mob attack on the Sri Lankan manager in Sialkot. He was burnt alive for the false accusation of “tearing down Durood Sharif.”
But with the recent internal report, he was attacked by the mob due to his strict working hours and discipline.
This whole incident has outraged not only the entertainment industry but also civil and national leaders who denounced it. President Arif Alvi said, “Vigilante attack has nothing to do with religion as Prime Minister Imran Khan has promised that those responsible will be punished with the full severity of the law”.
PM Imran Khan also tweeted, “horrific, vigilante attack” on the factory and the burning alive of the Sri Lankan man was a ‘day of shame for Pakistan. “I am overseeing the investigations and, let there be no mistake, all those responsible will be punished with the full severity of the law. Arrests are in progress.”
Every artist in Pakistan took to Twitter with the flood of tweets related to Sialkot’s incident. They raised their voice against this barbarism, fascism and looked forward to PM Imran Khan for all the answers.
Pakistan’s one of the finest actresses Mehwish Hayat tweeted, “Words fail me. We as a nation need to hold our heads in shame. Do we want to live in a country where mob rule is the norm and not the exception? We look to Imran Khan for swift action to stop this now,”
Mahira Khan said, “Ashamed! Sick to my stomach!! Looking at you, Imran Khan, for answers, for justice and to take away this menace from our country.”
Ushna Shah revealed her scariest part is, “there are still many who will argue ‘minorities are safe in Pakistan’ every time I raise my voice for them.” Sharing the premier’s tweet, she added, “By all means, make more ‘roohani madrasahs’ and further radicalize what’s left of this country.”
On one side where Ushna is scared meanwhile Saba Qamar is “completely shattered”.
Mansha Pasha exhibited her anger and asked all the Vloggers and bloggers to stop portraying the ‘soft image’ and show the reality of Pakistan. She questioned, “So, who’s the next vlogger who’s going to make feel-good tourist ads and proclaim how safe the country is for foreigners?”
She even went further and criticized Imran Khan for only focusing on eliminating “western influence.” While “what of the weaponized radical elements that use any excuse to spread terror and incite mob violence? Any word on them? Because they are and always have been the ones that are destroying the country. Shame!”
‘Fascism has no religion’ – Salman Ahmed
Salman Ahmed’s anger was clear and looked unafraid from any TLP members as he directly pointed them out. “Fascism has no religion,” and “TLP must not be allowed to masquerade as a religious party. They have poisoned the feelings of all Ashiq-e-Rasools on planet earth.”
Not only had that, but across the border, Swara Bhasker also condemned for what happened in Sialkot. She said, “Absolutely sickening and gut-wrenching the madness, brutality, and monstrosity humans unleash in the name of Gods and religion. Horrendous!” she tweeted.
President Arif Alvi responded on such highly outraged tweets, “The Sialkot incident was very sad and shameful and not religious in any way whatsoever. Islam is a religion established on the cannons of deliberative justice rather than a mob lynching.”
