As statements poured in from all quarters to condemn the Karachi attack that left 43 people belonging to the Ismaili community dead, India assured Pakistan that “we stand firmly with the people of Pakistan in this hour of grief”.


Through his official Twitter account, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the attack was “deeply saddening [and] utterly condemnable”.


Twenty-seven men and 16 women were killed in the attack.


The members of the Ismaili community were on their way to work when the bus carrying them was stopped.


“Three men boarded the bus, and two of them opened fire after the third accomplice told them to kill everyone,” said one of the injured women.


A police officer, who was later suspended, said the perpetrators had shot every victim at point-blank range.

jagmohan | 5 years ago | Reply | Recommend @Shoaib.......your comments on spot.However comments of so many friends from Pak, are blaming India,instead of showing sorrow on the great atrocity.Such a mind set is basic cause to embolden perpeterators of heinous crime.This is pure and simple growth from sectarian mindset,unknown to vast majority of Indians.Please introspect it rationally.
Anon | 5 years ago | Reply | Recommend Pakistani people can keep blaming India for anything they want... More and more such attacks will take place in Pakistan in the coming days so blame India for all the coming attacks too... no one in India cares... If pak wants it can take actions against India by attacking or by any other means if it dares...
