Liquor under the name of “Moonshine” was consumed by the victims which included local Christian youth and the guests who had come to attend the wedding. Pakistan Christian Congress argues that the Punjab government has overlooked the matter and thus far no action has been taken against the perpetrators who are non-Christians.

While expressing condolences over the loss of valuable lives, Dr. Nazir S Bhatti, said that an immediate action must be taken in order to curb the mafia involved in manufacturing and selling toxic liquor which has thus far claimed dozens of lives. He demanded that the manufacturers of the liquor should be arrested, and legal action must be taken against them.

“It is very surprising that police is blaming Christians for producing this toxic liquor which killed 11 Christians to safe Muslim culprits who are behind manufacturing “Moonshine” in Jhelum” he stated.
