The devestating attacks in Quetta on a bus carrying students of Sardar Bahadur Khan Women’s University and the Bolan Medical College Hospital shocked the nation and drew condemnation from across Pakistan. The banned terrorist group Lashkar-i-Jhangvi claimed responsibility for the bomb blasts which had been carried out by a female suicide bomber.

At least 25 people, including the deputy commissioner of Quetta, 14 students of the women’s university and four nurses were killed in the attacks.

Only cowards will target women and then attack the hospital ER where the injured are taken. The mayhem created in Quetta is sad. We condemn these cowardly attacks that killed female students, teachers, nurses and hospital staff. Our hearts and prayers go out to their families. Pakistanis are strong and resolute people, there terrorist can attack and kill innocents, but they cannot take away the people

I condemn all these kinds of attacks and especially on the women and children who are innocent. Who are these people who want to just bring mayhem and chaos to the Pakistani people who are already in so much burden. Mr, Nawaz Sharif I ask you to give us answer and bring all these people to justice please.
