ISLAMABAD, Dec 3 (APP): President Dr Arif Alvi Friday said the Sialkot incident was definitely very sad and shameful, and not religious in any way whatsoever.

He was referring to a mob attack on a factory in Sialkot and the burning alive of a Sri Lankan factory manager earlier in the day. 

Responding to Prime Minister Imran Khan’s tweet on the issue, the president appreciated the prompt action taken by the prime minister and the Government of Pakistan.

“The Sialkot incident is definitely very sad & shameful, and not religious in any way whatsoever,” he commented.

He said that Islam was a religion that established cannons of deliberative justice rather than mob lynching.
