ISLAMABAD: The Senate and National Assembly unanimously passed a resolution on Sunday condemning the Quetta bomb attack which killed 14 female students, Express News reported.

In Senate, the resolution was passed by Pakistan Muslim League - Nawaz (PML-N) leader Nuzhat Sadiq. Following the decision, the session was adjourned till 4pm Monday evening.

On June 15, a bomb was detonated in the parking lot of Sardar Bahadur Khan University, Quetta, killing 14 female students and injuring as many as 19 other students.

When these victims were shifted to the Bolan Medical Complex, a second blast took place and as many as 14 terrorists stormed the hospital. They killed four FC personnel and the deputy commissioner who responded to the attack.

The outlawed sectarian extremist group, Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ), claimed credit for the grisly attacks.

@lalai "Tell me what else can you do??" The most basic thing to do is to recognise why the violence is occurring.The answer has been known for the last 40 years: lack of development. Most of Baluchistan is the same today as it was in 1613. What have politicians done about that ? Here a look at what is possible in Baluchistan: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X3wUADXj1Pg

The (in)action of Pakistani politicians reminds one of Nero, practicing his violin while Rome burnt to the ground.

But they were not brave enough to condemn the coldblooded murderers by name. All they had to do was utter the name LeJ. Shame on the lot of them!
