NEW DELHI, India—On January 5, the Pakistani Punjab province’s police arrested Imran Chishti after registering an FIR No. 6/2020 against him under sections 295-A/ 290/291/341/506/148/149, 6 sound system / 7 Anti-Terrorism Act at Nankana Sahib police station.
Sharing the development over Twitter, the Punjab CM’s focal person (digital media) Azhar Mashwani said that Imran Chishti won’t be able to secure bail as he has been booked under the Anti-Terrorism Act.
It is noteworthy here that Imran Chishti incited a mob Muslim persons to pelt stones at Gurdwara Sri Janam Asthan, Nankana Sahib and had uttered highly inflammatory words against the Sikhs and Gurdwara Sri Janam Asthan Nankana Sahib on January 3.
Imran is an elder brother of Mohammad Hassan, who is accused of abducting and forcibly marrying Sikh girl Jagjit Kaur after getting her converted to Islam in August last year.
The Pakistan government has set an example by categorizing the Imran Chishti’s threats of converting Gurdwara Sri Nankana Sahib into Ghulaman-e-Mustafa as an act of Terrorism despite being an Islamic state. This is in contrast to India, where such threats are passed to the minorities by radical Hindu elements almost every day and the radical Hindus, who demolished Babri Masjid, are roaming freely without any fear even after 3 decades.
