Pakistan Peace and Solidarity Council strongly condemn the killing of more than 140 innocent school children and teaching staff in a terrorist attack on School in Peshawar of North West Pakistan. This is not the only incident to kill people in bomb blast, suicide attacks and target killings in the different parts of the country. Last year in the same city a Church was attacked killing more than 150 Christians. In the recent days the sectarian attacks also increased against shias, Hazaras and peace committees activists in Khyber Pukhtunkhwa and FATA. Last month’s attack in Wahaga Pak-India boarder near Lahore in which 50 precious lives were lost. This decade long violence have disturbed the country’s security, political and social conditions. This is the continuation of the deadly actions against the minorities, liberal and secular citizens of the country.
Pakistan Peace and Solidarity Council is concerned about the irresponsive and irresponsible attitude of the Khyber Pukhtunkhwa provincial and Federal governments. Taliban have been continuously giving threats, kidnap and frequently attacking the citizens and forces but still both the governments have repeatedly showed their desire for talks instead of taking action against them.
Pakistan Peace and Solidarity Council shows its full solidarity with these survivors of violence and demands immediate actions from the government to restore the law and order and protect the lives of the citizens. The survivors and their families need long term rehabilitation and to ensure the safety and protection of their lives and property in future. The citizens must be given honor, dignity and protection.
