Yet another terrorist attack in the last two weeks depicts the misfortune of the Pakistani citizens, especially Shias who are continuously facing these threats on their religious gatherings and places of worship. The timing and the will of the latest attack on Qasr-e-Sakina in Islamabad Imam Bargah today prove that the terrorists and religious extremists have mounted such attacks on minorities in an effort to dismantle the already developed national momentum and understanding for concrete action against all those who  dare challenge the writ of the state.

Hazara United Movement (HUM), United Kingdom firmly condemns such attacks and appeals to the civil society for standing up against terrorists to save the country. Such attacks must further strengthen the resolve and determination of the general public to fight terrorism with vigour and enthusiasm. Pakistani citizens have already done the utmost for cleansing the country off religious extremism, sectarianism, terrorism and militancy.

The Government of Pakistan must take bold and decisive action against all forms of terrorism, their sympathisers, foreign and international financiers and revamping the curriculum of the seminaries for better Pakistan.
The mainstream political leaders and parties, glorifying terrorism in the guise of Jihad must be taken into task and tried in the Special Trial Courts.
