    Its really a sad event since we have already limited number of intellectuals in our beloved country and they are being targeted one by one. To overcome these issues is not a big problem but if sincerity is there in our government circles Recommend

    we condemn this miserable incident. BLA, if actually involve in a case that should be punished under Govt law. What they want to kill the educational personalities. Actually they send us a message that they do not like education promotions in their controlled areas. But they have to bow before education because it is one of our religious duties and religion, Islam can not be defeated.
    we as student of Mass Communcation strongly condemn this incident and appeal to Govt of Baluchistan and Fedral Govt. that punish the personalities as early as possible.Recommend
