Peshawar: A condolence reference to show solidarity with Christian community was held in Baacha Khan Markaz Peshawar under the chairmanship of Mr. Bashir Ahmad Khan Matta. The objective was to show solidarity with the community on big human losses caused due to terrorist acts on 22.9.2013 on Peshawar church.
Large number of A.N.P workers, lawyers, PSF workers and Christian community attended the event. Bashir Ahmad Khan Matta, Mian Iftikhar Hussain, Aimal Wali Khan, Sadruddin Marwat, Senator Amarjeet Malhotra, Ex-MPA Asif Bhatti, Gulshan Yousuf and Bishop Shafee addressed the event, while Mr. Paster Pitras Salamat offered prayers and Dr. Hashmat delivered a message. At the end candles were lighted in the memory of those who lost their lives in the blast.
While addressing the gathering Mr. Bashir Ahmad Khan Matta said that terror acts on church is worth thinking for all of us. He said that A.N.P is shares this sorrow and extends condolence to the affected families. He said that it is the responsibility of the state to protect the rights & lives of Minorities.
But P.T.I Chief Imran Khan is just blaming A.N.P to hide his inefficiency & failure in time response on this occasion instead he should have praised the Bravery of A.N.P and its leaders & workers for their quick response to help the victims in this state of emergency.
He said Imran Khan is lacking political wisdom as he has spent most of his life in sports as a player. Quick response by Mian Iftikhar Hussain to reach the blast site was good gesture & good and scared politics of A.N.P. If Imran Khan considers it as a sin, we will continue with this sin to live & die with the masses. He said the God help P.T.I to continue with the politics to leave the people on mercy of God. This is their way of Pakistan.
Mian Iftikhar Hussain while speaking on this occasion condemned the church blast in strong words. He said that on one side hundreds of dead bodies & wounded were lying unattended in hospitals and the wounded people were crying for help, and their relatives crying.
But on the other hand the response by the Govt: side was zero. No Minister or public representative was there. There were no Doctors , no beds , no medicine & other facilities in hospital.
In this condition the people’s anger was natural. I reached Hospital as usual to show sympathy with people & tried to minimize their anger. If still Imran Khan sees it with doubts, then I can only pray for his wisdom, e said. Instead criticizing me, Imran Khan should have condemned the terrorists for their barbarism.
He said that he is follower of Baacha Khan and am from public & will always will stand with people. People are the best judges of my performance and I leave it to the people.
