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’s resolve for peace. We have to all work together and defeat this enemy that is hell bent on destroying Pakistan. We stand by the people of Pakistan in these times of trails and hope that the terrorist organizations are rooted out so peace prevails.

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.
