ISLAMABAD - Federal Minister for Human Rights Dr Shireen on Friday condemned mob violence that took place in Faisalabad over a cock-fighting. She said "our commitment to protection of the rights of all citizens remains a priority. Mob violence in all forms is unacceptable."

Earlier, on Friday there was a brawl leading to arm clash erupted over a cock-fighting among two groups. The group of boys belonged to Sunni and Ahmedi sects. Both groups resorted to aerial firing resulting in forearm injuries to two Ahmedis, and four Sunni Muslims and minor baton/brick injuries to four others.

However, DSP Khurialawa Circle and SHO Bluchni reached there upon receipt of information and tried to control the situation and took legal action and other preventive measures.
