    I want to condemn the bomb blast and killing of innocent and valuable life in quetta. I think what ever differences are there should be dealt with negotiations and both sides should work for peace.Believe me by taking these innocent lives both sides are doing big crime the answer of which would be too heavy in this world and hereafter. May ALLAH give character,wisdom and stature to the leaders of the world to make this planet peaceful place for it’s inhabitants,ameenRecommend
