LAHORE: Pir Hameeduddin Sialvi has warned and gave seven days of ultimatum to Government of Punjab on Saturday to impose sharia law in case the religious groups would shut down the entire province.
Leading a sit-in protest of thousands of people outside shrine of Data Gunj Bukhsh in Lahore, Sialvi has demanded the government to impose the sharia law.
The cleric urged the participants to take a vow today to follow the footsteps of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
Sialvi has urged the protesters to not cast their votes to such leaders who are not following the teachings of Holy Prophet Muhammad PBUH.
It should be cleared that the cleric had earlier demanded Rana Sanaullah and Punjab chief minister (CM) Shehbaz Sharif to tender their resignations.
Earlier in a day following the security threat all routes were blocked by placing containers in the surroundings of Data Darbar. High alert security was arranged for the participants of the sit-in.
