Mansoor Khalid | 11 years ago | Reply A sad incident of terrorism yet again. On one side the role of police was being sabotaged by a series of videos that circulated media and on one side we have these brave men as our first line of defense against any attack on civilian population. We need to stand shoulder to shoulder with these policemen and extend all our support for them.
