Quetta: Hazara Democratic Party in a press conference on Friday criticized the Government and security agencies for target-killing of Hazara and security failure. Abdul Khaliq Hazara, General Secretary HDP told media that it was the two-sided policies of our security establishment turning blind eye on the militant outfits that today the country is a epicenter of international terrorists, and local militants. He called on the policy-makers to crack down on the state-grown sectarian militant outfits.
HDP called a shutter down strike in Quetta on Saturday.
The US Embassy in Islamabad also condemned the attack on Hazaras killing 8 innocent people. In a statement, a US embassy Spokesman said, “Our thoughts and sympathies are with the victims and their families. The senseless killing of innocent civilians is an affront to the people of Pakistan and to all humanity. All must stand together in common purpose and take resolute action to disrupt, dismantle, and defeat terrorist organizations”.
