ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan on Friday termed the barbaric incident of Quetta as part of the systematic wave of violent attacks against the Hazara community.
Condemning the attack on a Quetta bound bus carrying Shia pilgrims from Iran, which led to loss of 13 lives, Imran said there could be serious repercussions if the trend of frequent attacks against the Hazara Community is not reversed.
The situation demands the government to undertake emergency measures to stop violent attacks against the community, he added. Imran Khan demanded stern action against the banned Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, which has openly claimed responsibility of this barbaric attack.
The PTI Chairman expressed complete solidarity with the Hazara community and conveyed deepest condolences to the bereaved families.
