Senator Sherry Rehman expressed annoyance over the fact that so far the government has not offered any reaction to her point raised just a day before about beating up of a Christian student in Faisalabad and locking her in a washroom. At this occasion, Chairman Senate Raza Rabbani, issued directions to conduct an investigation and present a report over this incident.

On the other hand, Leader of the House Raja Muhammad Zafarul told the House that he had received an initial report regarding the incident. He said that the report failed to satisfy him and so he directed the EDO to meet the Christian girl and her parents himself and then report back to him.

The incident took place in Samudari, where a Head Mistress of Government Girls Primary School Chack number 228 GB, purportedly threatened and thrashed a Christian student when she was found using the washroom. “You are Christian an infidel and how you dared to use washroom which Muslim girls use.”

Further more, Dr. Nazir S Bhatti- President of Pakistan Christian Congress, strongly condemned the incident and ruthless behaviour of the head mistress towards her Christian student. He called upon the government of Punjab to take notice of this incident and conduct a comprehensive investigation into it.
