Treatment sought for blast victims

January 14, 2018


PESHAWAR: The Pakistan Council of World Religions has expressed dissatisfaction over the medical treatment being provided to the injured people of the attack on a church in Quetta, and demanded of the government to ensure their proper medical care.

In a statement issued here on Saturday, Haroon Sarab Diyal, a senior member of the council, said a delegation of the council had recently visited Quetta to provide financial support to the Christian community members as the medical treatment provided to the wounded people was next to nil.

He said of at least seven wounded women three were in serious condition and needed immediate treatment but the government was least bothered to pay them proper attention.

Mr Diyal, who is also the chairman of All Pakistan Hindu Rights Movement, said the minority groups had extended financial support to the wounded people and shifted them to another hospital but the patients were still in dire need of medical care.

He said the elected representatives of minorities were getting huge funds in name of their respective communities but they were least bothered to spend the funds on welfare of the needy people.
