Attack in Baluchistan a result of deep conspiracy against Pakistan: Geelani
Says people involved in attack can never be followers of Islam
Srinagar: Hurriyat Conference (M) chairman Syed Ali Geelani on Saturday vehemently condemned the suicide bomb attack on an election rally in Mustang Baluchistan Pakistan, calling those involved in it as ‘beastly enemies’ of the entire humanity.
Condemning the terror attack, in which over 128 people were killed and scores of others injured, Geelani as per the statement issued here said that “it is a well-thought-out conspiracy to defame and malign this country. Pakistan faces multiple problems and cross border terrorism.”
Geelani termed it as ‘a result of deep conspiracy against Pakistan’.
“We condemn human killings and whosoever is involved shall face the wrath of Almighty Allah,” said Geelani.
Expressing his deep condolences and sympathies with the grief stricken families and those injured in dastard and dreadful action of enemies of Pakistan, Geelani said “killing of 128 innocent civilians and injuring hundreds is a grave concern for the whole Pakistan.”
“Terrorism in every form and place is condemnable and no religion, particularly Islam, has any place for actions like these. People involved in this attack can never be the followers of Islam,” he said.
While praying for speedy recovery for those injured in blast, Geelani expressed deep concern and grief over the loss of lives in the suicidal bomb attack.
He extended his sympathy and condolences to bereaved families and added, “Those involved in these heinous attacks are not human beings and we demand exemplary and stringent action against culprits’’.
“It is the handiwork of cowards and agents to destabilize this country,” Geelani said and asked authorities in Pakistan to identify the culprits and bring them to book as the country is continuously targeted.
He hailed the UN secretary general for his interest in the issue and termed it as encouraging.
Commenting over the UN secretary General, António Guterres reference over UNHRC report on Human Rights Violation in Jammu and Kashmir, Geelani hoped that UNO will take step and intervene to resolve this long pending issue as per norms laid in UN charter.
“I on behalf of people of suppressed Jammu and Kashmir express my gratitude to Guterres for his moral support to our cause,” Geelani said and expressed hope that he would play a “positive and effective role” for its peaceful settlement.”
