Prosecutor removed for asking Christian accused to embrace Islam: HumSub.TV

Prosecutor removed for asking Christian accused to embrace Islam: HumSub.TV: A deputy district public prosecutor has been removed from an anti-terrorism court (ATC) after he allegedly asked under trial Christian accused to embrace Islam to get acquittal in a lyiching case.

Sources in the Punjab Prosecution Department said that DDPP Syed Anees Shah was removed on Thursday night on the complaint of the accused.

Shah had asked the 42 under-trial Christians to embrace Islam after March 28 hearing of the case about lynching of two Muslim bystanders in the wake of suicide attacks outside two churches in Lahore’s Christian-dominated Youhanabad area in March 2015.

Meanwhile, PTI’s minority MPA Shunila Ruth on Friday filed a resolution in the Punjab Assembly, seeking condemnation of the house for the act of the prosecutor. She also requested for directions to stop discrimination against the Christians because of their faith.

On March 15, 2015, suicide attacks were carried out outside two churches in Youhanabad, triggering violent protests during which two Muslim men were burned to death after a mob suspected them as accomplices of the attackers.

The victims were identified as Babar Noman, a garment worker, and Hafiz Naeem, a glass cutter, of the same locality. Later, Nishtar Town police registered two FIRs against the accused.

The ATC on January 10, 2016 indicted 42 suspects for the lynching. The suspects pleaded not guilty and opted to contest their trial. No one has so far been arrested on charges of carrying out the blasts or facilitating them. However the accused Christians are behind bars for the last two years.

So far 10 out of total 92 witnesses have recorded their testimonies in the case. The next date of hearing is April 4.
