Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri condemns suicide hits in Lahore and Karachi

Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri, founding leader of Minhaj-ul-Quran International, has condemned the suicide attacks in Lahore and Karachi in the strongest possible words. He said that these two incidents of brutality show that terrorism remain a potent threat to the state and society and requires holistic national response to defeat it. He regretted the fact that meaningless bickering among the political parties over the petty issues has weakened the country’s capacity to fight the twin evils of terrorism and extremism. The failure of parliament, he added, to legislate on the issue of terrorism and bridge lacunae has served to embolden the terrorists who have let it be known that they can strike at will and at the time of their own choosing.

Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri appreciated the sacrifices and valour of the security personnel who gave their own life but saved hundreds of people from being hit. He prayed to Allah Almighty to rest the departed souls in peace and give patience to their families to bear the loss of their near and dear ones.

Meanwhile, Sahibzada Hassan Mohi-ud-Din Qadri, Sahibzada Hussain Mohi-ud-Din Qadri, Dr Raheeq Ahmad Abbasi and Sheikh Zahid Fayyaz have also condemned the terrorist incidents and condoled the deaths of innocent people.
