Suicide bombers strike again – the Wah Cantt tragedy

These were ordinary people struggling for livelihoods. What was their fault to have been brutally used as fodder in this gruesome Great Game of power, violence and territory? About time this menace is addressed and Pakistan is saved.

Islamabad, Aug.21 (ANI): At least sixty people were killed and over 80 others were injured in two suicide bomb blasts outside Pakistan’s main military arms factory in Wah Cantonement on Thursday.

Preliminary investigations revealed that the attackers blew themselves up almost simultaneously outside two gates of the sprawling factory complex in Wah Cantonment, said to be one of Pakistan’s most sensitive installations.

According to The News, the bombers were on foot and they exploded themselves less than a minute apart.

The Pakistani Ordnance Factories at Wah is a cluster of about 20 industrial units producing artillery, tank, and anti-aircraft ammunition for the Pakistan armed forces. It employs around 25,000 to 30,000 workers.

Police and security forces cordoned off the area while security has been put on high alert across the country.

Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani and Co-chairman, Pakistan People’s Party, Asif Ali Zardari strongly condemned the deadly blasts.

    Completely innocent civilians, not involved in any crime and conspiracy are mercilessly murdered without any warning, the killers accepted their deeds.
    This makes Talibans the abosulte murderer, no muslim who even has a little knowledge of the teachings of Holy prophet will link them to Islam.
    This has nothing to to do with the teaching of Holy prophets, his name is being used by murderers to fool the world.
    It is the duty of all the muslim leaders of religious parties if they have a any islamic sense to declare these Talibans Kafirs and out of Islam.
    Shame on these mullahs who defend these killers.
