Gilgit-Baltistan: Trouble makers would be dealt with iron hand-CM

Posted on

Gilgit (A.Today): Offices of three banned Gilgit-Baltistan (G-B) based religious outfits have been sealed, Chief Minister Mehdi Shah said on Thursday.
Earlier in October, the Interior Ministry had placed a ban on at least three G-B based religious outfits including the Sabeel Organisation, Tanzeem Nau Jawanaan-e-Ahle-Sunnat and Shia Talba Action Committee (STAC) for their alleged involvement in sectarian violence across the province.
Talking to reporters at his residence late on Thursday, the Gilgit-Baltistan chief minister said that the step was taken to ensure peace in the region that has witnessed growing violence on sectarian grounds in the recent past, leaving several dead.
“Gilgit has been divided into four zones with each zone placed under a superintendent of police,” he revealed and added that the troublemakers would be dealt with an “iron hand”.
