It is heart-rending to witness a massive and fatal blast which resulted into pools of blood and scattered body parts in the park where Christians came for celebration of Easter. The injured were seen crying for help and women running to find their children. The ghastly terrorist attack on one of the serene and historical cities of Pakistan is an indication that we lack a lot in security measures and protection of our innocent people.
The innocent lives of 72 people, who were killed in a suicide blast that took place in Lahore’s crowded Gulshan-i-Iqbal park on Sunday evening- another 300 innocent others were also injured. According to social media it is sequel of 2014 Peshawar school massacre. It simply indicates that for very many years, we have not done enough to eradicate the hideouts and breeding grounds of militants. The Government must launch a manhunt and crack down for those behind the attack.
