QUETTA: 

The Shuhada Action Committee, led by religious scholar Hafiz Hussain Ahmed Sherodi, staged a demonstration to protest ongoing targeted killings of religious scholars in Balochistan.

The committee took out a procession from Abdul Sattar Road and after marching through Liaquat Bazaar, staged a noisy protest in Bacha Khan Chowk. Student protesters from religious seminaries were carrying placards and banners inscribed with slogans calling for an end to killing of Baloch youth and religious leaders.

According to the committee, over eight religious scholars have been shot dead in broad daylight in Balochistan in the past two months. “The government and law-enforcement agencies have failed to arrest a single culprit involved in targeted killings, “said Sherodi.

    The cat is out of the bag, that foreign spy agencies are at work in Balochistan, financing terrorist and doing target shootings. So, what can this inept government do?? They should accept their weakness and respect the Pak Military as supreme that knows how tohandle, take care and protect the nation.
