Wonder,how come the HRCP never publicly expresses it's concern and condemns,such acts of terrorism being committed against innocent citizens and security personnel,by the lethally armed unknown militants in Balochistan...For instance,yesterday 8 innocent people got killed at a Dhobi shop,sprayed with bullets by men on M/Cycle. Are these not human's being killed for no fault of theirs ?
