Isa said flawed performance and planning of the police caused more damage. He directed to include the SHO and SP as well in the interrogation.

Chairman Pakistan Ulema Council Maulana Tahir Mehmood Ashrafi termed the attack on the Christian community an attack on Pakistanis. He said a 20-member committee had been formed which was seeing all the matters.

“If the perpetrators of the Josephabad incident were punished, such incidents would have stopped. The caretaker prime minister gave orders for immediate restoration of electricity in the affected areas. We should send a message to the world that we are all one,” Hafiz Tahir Ashrafi said.
