Condemning the bomb blast on an army truck in Korangi-5, Muttahida Quami Movement chief, Altaf Hussain, termed the incident `an act of cowardice’ and demanded immediate arrest of the culprits involved in the heinous crime.
In a statement issued on Thursday, the MQM chief said that the terrorists in Karachi have been killing innocent people in bomb blasts and, as such, their barbaric acts were highly condemnable.
Expressing grief and sorrow over the loss of lives and injuries caused to both the civilians in the Korangi’s bomb blast incident, Mr Hussain prayed to Almighty Allah to rest the departed souls in eternal peace and give courage to the bereaved families to bear this irreparable loss with fortitude.
He also prayed for early recovery of all those who sustained injuries in the incident.
Mr Hussain demanded of President Asif Ali Zardari, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, Federal Interior Minister, Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, Sindh Governor Dr Ishratul Ibad and Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah to take immediate notice of the Korangi bomb blast, nab the culprits involved in it and give them exemplary punishment.
