Term suicide attacks as ‘inhuman, un-Islamic’
Srinagar: The pro-freedom leaders on Friday condemned the recent attacks in Pakistani cities of Lahore, Karachi, Sindh, and termed such acts as inhuman.
Chairman Huriyat Conference (G) Syed Ali Geelani while expressing deep grief over the loss of lives due to suicide attacks said those involved in such heinous attacks are not human beings.
Expressing sympathy and condolences with the bereaved families, Geelani demanded exemplary and stringent action against culprits. “It is a well-thought-out conspiracy to defame and malign this country. Pakistan faces cross border terrorism,” he said.
Blaming India for “instigating and promoting terrorism” in Pakistan, Geelani said Afghanistan is being used as “launching paid for terrorist activities”.
He urged Pakistani administration, people and political leaders to “come on one page, crush these elements, isolate all those escalating troubles and take stringent action as per law of the land”.
Terming the bomb blast at a shrine in Sehwan area of Pakistan’s Sindh province as “worst form of terrorism”, Chairman Hurriyat Conference (M) Mirwaiz Umar Farooq said the people involved in this attack can never be the followers of Islam.
In a statement issued here, Mirwaiz while expressing grief over the killings said terrorism in every form and place is condemnable and no religion, particularly Islam, allows committing such acts. He expressed sympathy and solidarity with families of those killed and with the people of Pakistan.
In a statement issued here, JKLF chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik said attacks on innocent humans in Masajid, shrines, religious places, markets is “savagism” and no human can tolerate such kind of heinous inhumanity.
Praying for those killed attacks, Malik expressed sympathies with the bereaved families and prayed for the early recovery of injured.
Senior Hurriyat Conference (G) leader and chairman National Front Nayeem Ahmad Khan while condemning such attacks stressed upon the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to call a special session to chalk out a strategy against the “efforts of destabilising the lone nuclear power in the Islamic world”.
“The deadly Sindh attack is an inhuman act of cowards. The terrorists who attack religious places cannot be termed as human beings,” he said in a statement issued here.
Khan said efforts are on to weaken Pakistan so that Muslims of the subcontinent in particular are pushed to the wall. “The stable Pakistan is vital for peace, progress and strong South Asian region, that is why it is being attacked every now and then by the anti-peace elements,” Khan said and expressed solidarity with the people of Pakistan in general and the victim families in particular besides prayed for the speedy recovery of injured.
He said sectarianism is the basis of religious extremism and appealed religious scholars to strictly desist from provoking sectarian sentiments. “We as sincere Muslims should instead profess and propagate Islam in its Qur’anic perspective. The Ummah with one Rasool (SAW), one Quran and one Qibla should strengthen itself by joining hands and hands leaving differences of schools of thoughts aside,” Nayeem said.
In a statement, Democratic Freedom Party (DFO) chairman Shabir Shah expressed deep grief over the loss of precious human lives due to bomb blast in Sehwan, Karachi,
“The government of Pakistan should identify the culprits and bring them to book as the country is continuously targeted,” Shah said and expressed solidarity with the bereaved families.
