LAHORE - More people were killed in the terror attack on Benazir Bhutto's convoy on her return home from exile in October 2007 than were killed in the Mumbai carnage, Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani said on Thursday. "More Pakistanis died in Karachi than all those who died in Mumbai," Gilani told reporters in Lahore, adding: "We, too, are victims of terrorism." He also termed the Karachi attack as more horrific than the Mumbai strike. Earlier, the Prime Minister asserted that Pakistan will retaliate with full force at its disposal against any foreign aggression. Addressing the 1st Convocation of King Edward Medical University (KEMU) Thursday, he maintained that the whole Pakistani nation and political forces stood united to respond to any foreign aggression. Pakistan Army is also assessing the situation and fully alert to combat any impending adventurism by India, he added. The Prime Minister said: "We are peace-loving, civilised and responsible nation, and we strongly condemn terrorism in all its manifestations throughout the world." According to him, as PPP's manifesto is to promote peace, tolerance and prosperity, Pakistan wants cordial and friendly relations with all countries and is on the forefront in the global fight against terrorism. He said that promotion of education and health sectors is the top priority of his government, which is taking revolutionary measures to promote health sector. He pointed out that his forefathers had contributed a lot and played significant role in promoting education in Southern Punjab since 1834 and established a number of schools and degree colleges in Multan including the Nishtar Medical College which was founded by his father. Gilani also referred to the approval of first Women Medical College establishment in Multan by the Chief Minister Punjab at his behest. The establishment of this college will help facilitate female students from South Punjab to get medical education at the place close to their homes, he added. The setting up of a medical college for girls at Multan was a long-standing demand of the local people, as it would help provide best medical education to the girl students from southern districts. The female students had to travel to Lahore to get medical education and now with the approval of this new opening, the girl students and their parents would be happy and heave a sigh of relief, he maintained. All primary healthcare facilities including medicines, doctors, paramedical staff, medical equipment and building are being provided at Basic Health Units (BHUs) under the Prime Minister Initiative Programme (PMIP). The PMIP also encompasses the measures to control the fatal disease like Hepatitis and other water-borne diseases, especially in rural areas. Congratulating the fresh graduates, the PM said that since ancient times, the medical profession had always been considered a great social service and 'you have to carry forward this service by curing the ailing humanity through your knowledge and skills.' He advised them to serve the ailing humanity, especially the downtrodden people and those living in rural areas, having least access to health-care facilities. Gilani also appreciated the KEMU performance and services in the health sector as well as promotion of medical knowledge. He also commended the services being rendered by overseas Pakistani doctors not only in health sector but also in many other fields. The PM announced Rs 200 million for establishment of a hostel for female students of the KEMU. He, on this occasion, announced to give Rs one million from his own pocket every year to the winner of best student award of KEMU. Prior to his address, the PM awarded degrees, distinctions and medals to the respective graduates and postgraduates. Federal Minister for Parliamentary Affairs, Dr Zaheer-ud-Din Babar Awan and Punjab Senior Minister Raja Riaz Ahmed were also present, while KEMU Vice Chancellor Dr Muhammad Zafarullah Khan presented the performance report of the university in his welcome address.
