Lahore: The relatives of six Punjabis killed in Balochistan rallied form Regal Chowk to Punjab Assembly in a show of protest on Tuesday.

Protestors held placards and banners with slogans and asking Chief Minister of Punjab to break the silence and seeking financial help for the victims. Addressing the occasion, Nazir Hussain said that Sindhi, Balochi, Punjabi, and Pushto are one, nobody has the right to kill the other, and they should not be let off the hook without punishment.

He asked Chief Justice to take due notice of the incident and to financially help the relatives of the innocent victims. He also said that preemptive action should be taken against such crimes.

He said that state enemies should be dealt with sternly or it will give rise to parochialism which will not only be difficult to curb, but impossible. He said that the extremist elements want to spread anarchy in the country to weaken the state.

He asked the Chief Minister and Governor Punjab to condemn the killings and start investigations into the issue to bring the criminals to their deserved fate.
