اللہ کے گھر میں دہشت گردی کرنے والے حیوانوں سے بھی بدتر ہیں، آج جے سانحہ پر دل رنجیدہ ہے۔ اللہ تعالیٰ سے دعا ہے کہ شہیدوں کر درجات بلند کرے اور زخمیوں کو جلد صحت یاب کریں۔ آمین

Cowardly terrorist attack on children this morning in Peshawar. There is a clear strategy to destabilize Pakistan. It’s a multi tier co ordinated effort by both external & internal cowards. But the nation stands resolute & our resolve for peace & progress will not be stopped.

#Peshawar blast is a sad reminder that those cowards who hide in the dark to stalk innocent Pakistanis are completely aligned with the forces which create instability & chaos. They will not succeed.

However, nobody can shun the bravery and resilience of our nation as a whole, as the madrassah where the blast took place had it’s namaz-e-zuhr right after the blast took place.
