LAHORE: Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan on Friday strongly condemned attack on a Quetta bound bus carrying Shia pilgrims from Iran which led to loss of 15 innocent lives.

Terming the attack barbaric, he said incident is part of systematic wave of violent attacks against Hazara community whose 60 people have been brutally killed during past six months.

There could be serious repercussions if dangerous trend of increasing frequency and intensity of violent attacks against Hazara Community is not reversed, said Khan.

The PTI chief said security situation of Balochistan is extremely uncertain and continued attacks against a particular community can push the province into a state of complete chaos.

He said that constant failure to ensure security of Hazara community despite loss of so many innocent lives is criminal negligence on part of the government. The situation demands government to undertake emergency measures to stop violent attacks against the community.

The PTI chief demanded stern action against banned Lashkar-e-Jhangvi which openly claimed responsibility of this barbaric attack. He expressed complete solidarity with Hazara community and conveyed deepest condolences to bereaved families.
