Somebody came, gave them black halwa, and they all got blinded by the sight of it, grabbed it, devoured it and then after 15 minutes were in the ambulances.
The chairman Ruet-e-Hilal Committee Mufti Muneeb-ur-Rehman, Maulana Abdul Ghafoor Hyderi and others were rushed to hospital after falling ill during Ulema Conference at the residence of Maulana Abdul Ghafoor Hyderi in parliament lodges. Rumor was that even some of them expired, but thankfully almost all are stable now.
Doctors and Police said that there is a possibility someone has mixed up poisonous substance in the Halwa. It is said that the black Halwa was given to Haji Abdul Ghafoor Hyderi on returning from Hajj.
Why would anyone do that? I mean why would anybody try to get rid of them? Was it a coincidence.
