LAHORE: Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah urged the ulema to maintain harmony among the people of different sects, Express News reported on Friday.
Sanaullah was speaking to the media in Lahore.
The provincial law minister said that cases related to the Rawalpindi sectarian clashes will be heard in anti-terrorism courts.
“Appropriate action will be taken against those found guilty,” he added.
On November 15, sectarian clashes had erupted at a procession near Rawalpindi's Fawara Chowk, marring an otherwise peaceful Ashura.
The clashes left at least 11 people dead and over 78 injured.
The government had imposed a weekend long curfew in the city following the clash in which unidentified people had taken guns from security officials, positioned for the security of processionists, and opened fire.
Unidentified people had also set a portion of the cloth market in Raja Bazaar on fire.
