Women parliamentarians condemn terrorist attack


Says country’s enemies will not succeed in nefarious designs

Women parliamentarians from Balochistan on Thursday strongly condemned the terrorist attack in Karachi University and termed it as inhumane act against religious, social and Baloch traditions.

Addressing a press conference at the Chief Minister’s Secretariat here by Member National Assembly (MNA) Zubeida Jalal, Senator Sana Jamali, Parliamentary Secretary for Information and Broadcasting and Social Welfare Bushra Rind, Parliamentary Secretary for Women’s Development Jabeen Sheeran and Laila Tareen expressed heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families.

They said that country’s enemies will not succeed in their nefarious designs through such cowardly attacks. This incident is also a conspiracy to keep the women of Balochistan away from education, they added. The parliamentarians said during the interrogation, the husband of the woman stated that she was not in good mental condition while all aspects of the matter were being investigated and the Balochistan government was cooperating fully in the investigation.

Parliamentary Secretary Information and Broadcasting Bushra Rind said that the incident is an attempt to destabilize the peace and added that the nation is united against the menace of terrorism. MNA Zubeida Jalal said that the people of Makran division expressed their condolences to the families of all the victims, including three Chinese teachers, in the incident that took place at Karachi University.

“It is a tragic incident but it is not the culture of Baloch society. This incident will affect the whole region. It is clear that the people of Balochistan are not with such elements, external elements are involved in the incident of Karachi with an aim to spread anarchy in the country”, she maintained.
