Blast in Abbas Town is the worst example of barbaric terrorism: Altaf Hussain
The Founder and Leader of Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM) Mr Altaf Hussain has deplored the devastating bomb blast in Abbas Town in Karachi and expressed his deep sense of grief and sorrow on the deaths of innocent people. He said that the administration, police and law-enforcing agencies did not take any step to secure the area, although many people had died in an earlier blast in Abbas Town sometime back.
Condemning the blast, Mr Hussain said that the elements which were carrying out such barbaric acts were not even worthy of being called human beings. He asked the government and the law-enforcing agencies as to how long the innocent people would continue to fall victim to the activities of the cold-blooded terrorists. He asked why the citizens have been left to the mercy of the heartless terrorists.
Mr Hussain said that the incidents of terrorism occurring in Karachi were aimed at dividing the Mohajirs along sectarian lines and spilling their blood. He said that the organizations that were created by the establishment were responsible for the bloodshed in Karachi.
Mr Hussain said that a pretence had always been made to outlaw these sectarian organizations, but they were operating freely. He said that the establishment, and its agencies were well aware of the hide-outs of these organizations, but no action was being taken against them. He regretted that the law-enforcing agencies were acting as silent spectators and no one was willing to stop the terrorists.
Mr Hussain expressed his dismay on the fact that the law-enforcing agencies failed to respond in a timely manner after the massive blast in Abbas Town that killed over 25 people and many more got seriously injured.
Mr Hussain extended sympathies to the people affected people and urged on them to take steps for protecting themselves as the government, establishment and their agencies had failed to discharge their duties.
Mr Hussain directed the Khidmat-e-Khalq Foundation to take every step to provide treatment to the injured and consoling the families of the people who died in the blast. He offered his condolences on the loss of lives in the deadly blast in Abbas Town and prayed Allah to shower His blessings on the souls of the people killed in the incident. He also prayed for the speedy recovery of the injured.
