If you suffered from heatstroke during Ramadan fasting hours where sharia zealots were roaming about, woe be unto you. For them, religious edict transcends human well being–no concern, no love, no caring, just religious obedience.

A “water outlet, set up at Ayub Gate, is one of the many centres set up by the Sukkur Municipal Corporation (SMC) to provide immediate relief to victims of heatstroke as the maximum temperatures in certain upper Sindh areas in recent days remained between 40 and 47 degrees Celsius (for reference 47 degrees Celsius translates to 116.6 degrees Fahrenheit.) Such centres normally function at peak hours i.e. from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m..” Armed Islamic zealots stormed the “heatstroke centre in the city and resorted to firing into the air, forcing its operators to take to their toes.” They “objected to the operation of such centres during the fasting hours. They told operators of several centres to shut them ‘or face the consequences’”.

Although these zealots are painted to be “some radical group“, there is no further reporting about them being detained and prosecuted. That’s because their behavior is within Pakistan’s ‘norm’. In fact, other such municipal heatstroke centers were advised to close. Pakistan is a state sponsor of jihad terror; infamous for its blasphemy laws, forced conversions,  forced marriage of young Christian and Hindu girls, and other abuses in the name of Islam. This incident is by no means an aberration for Pakistan.

SUKKUR: Armed men, believed to be activists of some radical religious group, on Thursday stormed a heatstroke centre in the city and resorted to firing into the air, forcing its operators to take to their toes.

The water outlet, set up at Ayub Gate, is one of the many centres set up by the Sukkur Municipal Corporation (SMC) to provide immediate relief to victims of heatstroke as the maximum temperatures in certain upper Sindh areas in recent days remained between 40 and 47 degrees Celsius. Such centres normally function at peak hours ie from 10am to 5pm.

Some radical religious activists, taking it as a violation of the Ehteram-i-Ramazan Ordinance, objected to the operation of such centres during the fasting hours. They told operators of several centres to shut them “or face the consequences”, according to Mr Taufiq Bandhani, SMC’s contractor of the centres.

However, the operators under threat appeared not convinced by their argument that people not suffering from heatstroke were largely being served water.

After repeatedly issuing such threats and getting annoyed by the operators’ defiance, a group of armed radicals stormed the Ayub Goth centre and forced its operators to shut it down. They fired into the air making the operators flee……
