ISLAMABAD: The Majlis Wahdatul Muslimeen (MWM) has given the government a 12-hour ultimatum to arrest the killers of Allama Nawaz Irfani, who earlier on Wednesday was gunned down by unknown miscreants in the federal capital, DawnNews reported.
Initial reports suggest that Irfani, who had recently moved from Parachinar after serving as main cleric of the area’s major imambargah, was gunned down by unidentified motorcycle riders in Islamabad’s E-11 sector.
His body was later moved to Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (Pims) for postmortem.
Condemning the incident, MWM leader Allama Nasir Abbas and others demanded of the government to bring the culprits behind the killing to book in next 12 hours.
Shia Ulema Council (SUC) also condemned the attack, saying the government has given the militants a free hand to kill anyone they wish.
