Lahore: The Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP) has condemned the twin bombing in Karachi and slammed the unending targeting of citizen because of their belief.
A statement issued by HRCP on Monday said: “Another week, another city. Sunday’s bombings in Karachi constitute yet another failure of the government and the intelligence agencies to protect the citizens from wanton killings. The two blasts obviously targetted the citizens because of their belief and sectarian identity.
The government has announced the usual measures; offer of compensation for lives lost and property damaged. A day of mourning has been announced and the national flag flies at half mast. None of these actions assuage the pain of those directly affected and of the countless other Pakistanis who feel an acute sense of abandonment. Rather than praising the citizens for foiling attempts to instigate sectarian bloodshed, the government should nab the killers to end this butchery.
It is ceaseless and senseless killing like this that has led to suspicions that the security agencies either do not have a clue on how to stop the bloodshed or they are involved. In such cases incompetence is only marginally less damning than downright complicity.”
