Posted In: News Date:Oct 11th, 2017

Human rights lawyer and activist Asma Jahangir on Tuesday demanded former prime minister Nawaz Sharif to take notice of retired Capt Muhammad Safdar's tirade against the persecuted Ahmadi community.

On Tuesday, Safdar, who is the former prime minister's son-in-law and a member of the ruling PML-N, accused the faith group of acting against the country's interests and called for action against its members.

"These people [Ahmadis] are a threat to this country, its Constitution and ideology," Safdar had said.

Appearing on DawnNews talk show News Wise, Jahangir said that Safdar's incendiary speech made in the National Assembly was unacceptable and "highly discriminatory".
