A heavy contingent of police and FC personnel reached the blast site and cordoned off the area.

    So I don’t see any condemnation when these uniformed Pakistanis die serving their country, but when the people who kill them are killed, we get all the condemnation.

    @jerseybb: When usurpers is killed no condemnation, civilians who are fighting for their rights get sympathy, Balochis are discriminated in their own province. where ppl from punjab holding key posts even a small Sepoy is imported from Punjab.valuable lands are distributed among serving and retired army officers in the name of defense, all valuable lands in karachi are also defense areas and cantonment areas, When our army is serving the interests of particular province and Generals then they lose the image of protector and become usurpers.That was the same case of Bangalis.
