Mir Hakmal Raisani, nephew of Chief Minister Nawab Aslam Raisani, was laid to rest in his ancestral town of Kanak on Saturday.

Hundreds of people attended the funeral prayers for Hakmal, son of Siraj Raisani, who was killed in a hand grenade attack at a football stadium after a prize distribution ceremony.

The blast was followed by intense firing that left 39 people, including eight personnel of the ATF and four policemen, injured.

Stringent security measures were adopted at the funeral, with the deployment of heavy contingents of the police, levies and other law enforcement agencies.

The chief minister along with senator Haji Lashkari Raisani and provincial ministers and party workers attended the funeral.

    Mir Hakmal Raisani was an innocent student of matric class. He is fondly remembered by children of his School. It was so sad to see small child dying. He has fallen victim to the same people who had been killing innocent people and been getting support directly or indirectly from some government officials, media and NGOs in the name of Human Rights.
    Same day several persons of Hazara community were targeted in the name of religion.
    Courts have failed to punish the arrested terrorists which have further encouraged them to continue with their treacherous actions. They are busy in political scoring rather than providing justice to the general public.
    The solution lies in showing zero tolerance towards crimes and criminals. Pakistan should move firmly against this dirty lot and eliminate them. Courts and media has become a luxury in absence of justice to common man and outburst of terrorism

    kill all the terrorists mercilessly . and that is the only solution.
