After the attack on the Karachi police chief’s office, people are very upset.
People were still reeling from the Peshawar Police Lines attack, which killed dozens of people almost three weeks ago, when another attack on the country’s police, this time in Karachi, happened.
On Friday, militants broke into the Karachi police chief’s office, which is on the main road, Sharea Faisal.
After terrorists tried to blow up a five-story police building, the attack started at 7:10 p.m. and went on for four hours. There were also multiple explosions.
Three people were killed, including security workers, and 18 others were hurt. During the attack, five terrorists were also killed.
Now that the terrorists have been cleared out of the building, people from all over the country, including politicians and celebrities, have come together to condemn the attack.
President Dr. Arif Alvi strongly condemned the attack in the city, and he prayed for those who were hurt to get better quickly.
“The whole country stands with its security forces against terrorists,” the White House said on Twitter. Continued efforts will be made to get rid of the threat of terrorism.”
Shehbaz Sharif, the prime minister, has also turned his back on the terrorist attack.
The Prime Minister thanked the police and security forces for their “vigorous efforts” against terrorists and asked Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah for a report on what happened.
“Such cowardly acts can’t break the will of the police and other law enforcement agencies,” he said.
The prime minister also told the interior minister, Rana Sanaullah, to help with the operation. He said, “All state power must be used to rid the country of the scourge of terrorism.”
The PM said that the whole country stands behind the police and security agencies and prayed for the people who were hurt in the attack to get better.
At Aj Shahzeb Khanzada Ke Saath, Defense Minister Khawaja Asif said it was time for the country to come together against terrorism.
He also criticised the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) for not taking part in efforts to reach a national agreement.
“People are protesting against terrorism in Swat,” he said. “Now that Afghanistan is at peace, terrorists have no business being there.”
After the news of the attack spread for a few hours, the German Consulate General spoke out against it. On Twitter, the consulate wrote: “CG Dr. Lotz condemned terrorist attack at Karachi police chief office. He sent his deepest condolences to the people who died trying to stop the terrorist attack and hoped that those who were hurt would get better quickly. He said that Germany supports Pakistan’s fight against terrorism.
Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari, the Foreign Minister and leader of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), also used Twitter to speak out against the terrorist act.
“Condemn the terrorist attack on Karachi police,” the FM wrote. Terrorism has happened before, but Sindh police have been brave and stopped it. We’re sure they’ll do it again, and these cowardly attacks won’t stop us.”
Ali Muhammad Khan, the leader of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, has used the microblogging site to pray for the safety of police officers.
“May Allah keep everyone safe and completely stop the attack against the country,” he wrote on Twitter.
Naz Baloch, a lawmaker from the PPP, called the attack “tragic” and wrote about it on Twitter.
“The brave people of the Sindh Police, Rangers, and Pakistan Army are fighting terrorists. “May Allah keep Pakistan safe and destroy its enemies,” she wrote on Twitter.
Mahira Khan, a well-known actor in Pakistan, also expressed her worry about the attack by writing, “Allah Reham.
God, please help Karachi. “I’m praying hard for everyone’s safety.”
