ISLAMABAD:

National Assembly Standing Committee on Human Rights sought a complete report in Noor Mukadam's murder case and directed for an in-camera meeting.

The committee meeting held Thursday at the Parliament house under Acting Chairperson Shazia Marri.

On the vandalism of a temple in Bong village, Rahim Yar Khan, the committee was extremely perturbed to know that how a 9-year-old child could be implicated in a blasphemy case, who allegedly urinated in a local seminary, and who was consequently granted bail by a local court.

The administration could have prevented the incident by coordinating with the locals of the area, but negligence was committed by them and police. Although the restoration work of the temple has been done, the committee opined the minorities should be protected and should feel secure to live in that area.

The committee directed that progress in the case should be shared with the committee and culprits and miscreants should be punished and dealt as per law.
