Govt beefs up security of Sherry, Fauzia.

ISLAMABAD, March 03, 2011 (Balochistan Times): Federal Government Wednesday beefed up the security of several other prominent political liberalists including Sherry Rehman and Fauzia Wahab following the brutal killing of Federal Minister for Minority Affairs, Shahbaz Bhatti. According to media reports, after the assassination of Shahbaz Bhatti, security of former Federal Information Minister, Sherry Rehman and PPPs former Secretary Information, Fauzia Wahab was a significant question. Federal government, viewing the circumstances and intermittent threats being received from the extremists, tightened the security of both PPP workers. It is pertinent to note some of the close aides to Shahbaz Bhatti had reported he was continuously receiving threats from fanatic elements and he made a request to government to provide him a bulletproof vehicle. While the assassination was carried out, security guards were not accompanying Shahbaz Bhatti because he refused to take them with him. Following his statements pertaining to amendments in blasphemy law, fanatic groups had sternly reacted warning government to take notice of such statements, otherwise be ready to face the music.
