Warraich says Taseer’s murder ‘threat’ to democracy

Imtiaz Safdar Warraich, president Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) Punjab, said Salman Taseer’s assassination was a threat to democratic powers in the country.

Talking to media representatives here after offering Fatiha at slain former Governor Punjab’s grave, Imtiaz Safdar stressed the need for improved security for personalities under threat.

The political murder of Salman Taseer was being painted in wrong colour, he added.

Meanwhile, a delegation of Christian notables also visited Taseer’s grave and hailed the services rendered by former Governor.

Speaking on the occasion, father Immanuel Yousuf urged the government to focus on legislation for eradicating extremism and promoting religious harmony in the country.
