Machh incident: Sheikh Rashid’s assurances rejected, protesters demand PM to come to Quetta

Despite all assurances from Sheikh Rashid, the protesters refused to end the sit-in and demanded that Prime Minister Imran Khan himself visit Quetta to look into the matter.

At the behest of Prime Minister Imran Khan, the Federal Interior Minister reached Quetta to meet the families of the victims and the protesters.
On this occasion, Sheikh Rashid said in his statement that Machh tragedy is cruelty and abuse, I am ashamed of this tragedy, terrorists attacked me four times, in the war against terrorism, 4 funerals have taken place from our street.

Sheikh Rashid told the protesters that the Prime Minister has given a message that under no circumstances will the perpetrators of the Machh tragedy be spared. I assure you that those responsible for the Machh tragedy will not be spared.

Sheikh Rashid further said that you are great people who make sacrifices and maintain loyalty to the country.
The Home Minister said that before coming, he spoke to Allama Raja Nasir Abbas who asked him to go to Quetta.

He said that the provincial government and the federal government would provide Rs. 1.5 million to the victims of the Machh tragedy.

Sheikh Rashid appealed to the protesters to bury the martyrs and come to Islamabad one day.

He said that the Prime Minister had specially given his plane and sent it to Quetta. “I announce the Judicial Committee on the Machh tragedy. All Shia communities will be given full security. I assure you that those who killed 11 people in Machh will not be spared,” Sheikh Rashid said.
Despite all assurances from Sheikh Rashid, the protesters refused to end the sit-in. On this occasion, the Hazara community leader demanded that Prime Minister Imran Khan himself visit Quetta to look into all these issues.

Sheikh Rashid said that he accepted all the demands except the resignation of the provincial government and would convey the message of the protesters to the Prime Minister today or tomorrow morning. Later, Federal Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid left the sit-in with the delegation.

Earlier, the talks of the provincial ministers with the committee set up by the participants of the ongoing sit-in in Quetta against the Machh incident had also failed.
