Pakistan minister demands non-Muslim guards for his protection
A Pakistan minister asked for non-Muslim security personnel after receiving threats from Islamists.
According to local media reports, Provincial Law Minister Rana Sanaullah has rearrange his security cover – removing Muslims and asking for Christians, Hindu and Ahmadi guards instead.
Sanaullah made headlines last month when he said during a TV interview that there were only ‘minor differences’ between Muslims and Ahmadis. It sparked a massive outrage in the country – especially among staunch Islamists who called for his resignation.
Islamist group Tehreek Labaik Ya Rasool Allah had organised protests against the minister for his comment.
A section, according to the minister, has also threatened to kill him.
As a result, Sanaullah has asked the police department to screen his security detail. He has also said that he will then personally check and appoint security officials. Till then, Sanaullah has employed Christian guards from a private security agency.
