The route of the Al-Quds Day rally was agreed between the organizers and Police. It was decided that the rally will not go to Mezan Chowk, where exactly the suicide bomber attacked killing dozens of innocent people. But when the rally reached Mali Bagh area, organizers raised emotional religious slogans such as “This Jaloos Will Go to Karbala”, when Police stopped them. Protesters pushed away the police barricade and violated the agreement taking the rally towards Mezan Chowk.
Though its not a reason to say for the attack. But in a situation when security is at worst all across the country, it was irresponsible decision by the organizers. There was a suicide attack on a Shia rally just a day ago in Lahore, why the organizers of the rally did not cooperate with the security officials? It was against the security precautions to go to Mezan Chowk. They should be questioned, in a inquiry by Court.
