#Zainab demands head of investigation be fired because the official is an Ahmadiya Muslim. Someone tell him please, the rapists were ‘real’ Muslims.”
“JIT head is a ‘Qadiani’, won’t accept an inquiry not headed by a Muslim”: Zainab’s father rejects CM Punjab’s probe team

LAHORE– The father of seven-year-old Zainab who was found raped and murdered this week has demanded of replacing the head of a Joint Investigation Team (JIT) formed to probe the case.
“It has been learnt that the JIT head – Additional IGP Abubakar Khuda Bakhsh – is a ‘Qadiani’,” said Mr Ameen at a press conference in Kasur on Thursday while rejecting the probing team’s leader tasked by the Punjab chief minister yesterday.
Shehbaz Sharif had on Wednesday constituted a Joint Investigation Team (JIT) comprising members of Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and Intelligence Bureau (IB).
Seven-year-old Zainab was found raped and killed Wednesday, five days after she had gone missing from her home. Police say the girl was kidnapped near her home when she was on her way to take a Quran class. Her parents were in Saudi Arabia to perform Umrah.
