Bilawal has repeatedly accused the Punjab government of sheltering the LeJ.
Earlier on March 21, a Lahore High Court division bench granted bail to Malik Ishaq, leader of Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat, in two cases where is he accused of delivering provocative speeches. ASWJ was known as the SSP (Sipah Sahaba Pakistan) before it was banned for fermenting terror and sactarian hate. The Banned Terror outfit Lhaskar-Jhangvi is its offshoot.
Meanwhile the Punjab CM Shahbaz Sharif directed IG Punjab to look into the matter immediately.
