A group of lawyers organized peace rally in Gilgit city carrying posters and banners for restoration peace and sectarian harmony. The rally started from Banazir Chowk and disbursed at City Park. Addressing to the rally senior lawyers criticized the provincial government on its failure in maintaining peace. The rally turned into seminar when some government officials joined. Addressing to rally Law Minister Wazir Shakeel appreciated the lawyers stating that a single rally organized by Lawyers is more effective then government’s four months struggle and welcomed their suggestions in restoration of peace, while accepting the first priority of government should be peace in the region, he disappointedly mentioned that the local administration and agencies are involved in sectarian violence since 20 years. He point out that until now no any government servant has been punished for his/her association with sectarian violence.
