Nawaz vows to bring Shia doctor’s killers to justice


Nawaz Sharif, president of his own faction of the Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N), on Saturday said killers of renowned Shia surgeon Dr Ali Hyder would be brought to justice.

Speaking to reporters outside the deceased doctor’s residence, Nawaz said the family of Dr Ali Hyder had sacrificed for the creation of Pakistan and had severed the country, adding that murder of Dr Hyder was unfortunate for the whole nation.

He said police and other law-enforcement agencies were doing their best to book the culprits.
Talking on the occasion, Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif said he was monitoring the progress of the case daily, adding that the culprits would soon be brought to justice.

To a question regarding Rehman Malik’s statement on Lashkar-e-Jhangvi’s presence in Punjab, the CM said that Malik did nothing for security of the Hazaras after first bombing and blaming the Punjab government was ridiculous.

He said law and order situation in Punjab was far better than any part of the country. He questioned that what Malik had done to control violence in Balochistan and Karachi.

To a question about a link between handing over of Gwadar Port to China and recent wave of terrorism in Balochistan, Nawaz ruled out foreign hand in terrorism, saying that the government had failed in maintaining law and order in Balochistan and Karachi.

Earlier, the Sharifs visited Dr Ali Hyder’s family who was shot dead with his minor son last week in Lahore.


  1. Mr Noora Sharif! Do you think you can befool people again by dirty politics. Shame on you. You bad time starts. May God throw you into hellfire. Amen.
