KARACHI: Leaders of Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) and Awami National Party (ANP) here Tuesday strongly condmened the failure of government to arrest the culprits, whose grenade attack had left at least 13 women and children dead in Mawach Goth, Karachi, on August 14, 2021.
Addressing a press conference, the representatives of the bereaved families announced to prolong their protest drive till the terrorist’s network is exposed to the nation.

They said that their protest in line with the law and Constitution will continue until police and its CTD bring the terrorists to justice.
“We don’t need any sympathy (from the Sindh government) rather action should be taken (against the terrorists),” Meraj Khan Swati, one of the representatives of the terror-plagued families told the news conference, organized by Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Karachi chapter with its Chief Engr. Hafiz Naeem-ur-Rehman to spearhead the criticism at the Sindh government and law enforcers.
