Muttahida Qaumi Movement chief Altaf Hussain condemned the bomb blast that occurred at an election rally of Pakistan People’s Party in Lower Dir of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa which claimed several lives including that of Zahir Shah, a brother PPP’s former MPA, Zameen Shah.
In a statement issued from London, the MQM chief deplored that when the general elections were only four days away, the country’s law and order situation was getting worse with each passing day and bomb explosions and killing of innocent people had become a matter of routine.
Lashing out at terrorist elements who are indulging in bloodshed of innocent people in the name of Islam and targeting some particular parties, Mr Hussain said that it seemed as if there was no writ of the government in the country.
He said that since no person believing in humanity could support terrorism, the so-called political and religious leaders who were extending their support to terrorist elements were also equally responsible for the acts of terrorism.
At the outset, Mr Hussain expressed his heartfelt condolences with PPP leaders, former MPA and a PPP candidate Zameen Khan over the death of his brother Zahir Shah and other bereaved families and prayed for the early recovery of all those who sustained injuries in the bomb explosion.
