A suicide bomber, in a terrorist attack, blew ‘it’self up in a mosque which resulted in the untimely death of at least 10 defenseless Shia Muslims. Those death toll included six children as well. According to the Baluchistan Home Minister, Sarfraz Bugti, apart from the deceased, the bomb severely wounded 12 others. This suicide attack took place just outside of an Imambargah in Bolan’s Goth Chalghari area on Thursday.
At least 10 people were killed and 12 others were wounded after a suicide bomber blew himself up at a Shia mosque.
The deceased and wounded have been shifted to nearby hospitals by the rescue workers and law enforcers. It is feared that the death toll may rise. According to witness reports, a man trying to get inside the mosque hall was intercepted by the security guard situated at the entrance, upon which ‘it’ blew ‘it’self up. The incident took place at the courtyard of the mosque where little children were playing. Terrorist activity increases during the sacred month of Muharram, which is why security is beefed up enormously. It is unfortunate that despite several security arrangements, terrorists still manage to find a way to cause unbelievable harm to innocent lives.
Previously it was learned that four terror bids were foiled ahead of Ashura and several terrorists were arrested and quite a few killed. While that in itself may have been a reason to celebrate, it would seem that the efforts are still proving inadequate. We implore the authorities to take notice of the security situation within the country and provide security for our citizens and fellow Muslim brothers. Our hears and prayers go out to those who lost their lives and we pray for patience to the families who lost loved ones. Hopefully, no terrorist activity will present itself in the future.
