  1. Failure of government even before same area is targeted but government failed to handle security situation in country.Even government knows Indian terrorists involved in terrorism in Pakistan but still Nawaz and his government are in love with India the anti Pakistan terrorists hub.

    • Ch000tiye, India need not to spend money on you guys…you are violent enough to kill each other…..enjoy

  2. The terrorists continue to cross all lines in their bid to spread fear and chaos. Their long list of crimes leaves very little to ponder in regards to their dangerous objectives. The people of the region have suffered enough at the hands of these ruthless terrorists. We hope that the ones responsible for orchestrating these heinous crimes are brought to justice and punished to the fullest extent of the law. Our heartfelt condolences go out to the victims’ families. We sincerely hope that the victims’ families will find the strength to get through this difficult time. We also wish a quick and speedy recovery to those who have been injured. We fully support Pakistan in its war against the extremist organizations, and hope to see peace prevail throughout the region.
