 It is relevant to mention here that Shahbaz Taseer’s father, Salman Taseer former Governor of Punjab, was assasinated by his own guard, Mr. Mumtaz Qadri, for his alleged blasphamous comments and his efforts for the release of Aisha Bibi, a christian women accused of committing blasphamy. RightsNow Pakistan calls for both national and provincial government for investigation and release of Shahbaz Taseer. This is nother sad incident with Taseer family after the assasination of  Salman Taseer.

RightsNow Pakistan condemns the abduction of Mr. Shahbaz Taseer and call for his immediate release. We expresss solidaity and sympathy with Taseer family.

Karachi, this incident in Lahore and other incidents of violence and killings in other parts of Pakistan shows the weaker writ of the Government where citizens have lost their confidence in the state for their security. If this time, the Shahbaz Taseer was not speedily released and  abductors were not held accountable, the miscreants and criminal elements will be encouraged and peaceful citizens of Pakistan will feel more insecure and scared.
