International community condemns terrorist attacks in KPK, Balochistan

  • Extends support to Pakistan after blasts kill scores of people in both provinces
Published September 30, 2023

The international community has strongly condemned the terrorist attacks in Mastung and Hangu, and also extended their support for Pakistan.

In a post on X, formerly Twitter, State Department Spokesperson Matthew Miller shared Washington’s condemnation of the suicide attacks in the two provinces.

“Pakistanis deserve to practice their faith without fear. Our deep condolences to families who lost their loved ones,” Miller wrote.

The US Embassy in Islamabad also condemned the attacks, saying that Pakistani people deserve to gather and celebrate their faith without the fear of terror attacks.

“Our hearts go out to the victims and their families. We will continue to stand with Pakistan in the face of these vicious attacks.”

Meanwhile, the Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs also expressed its condemnation and denunciation of the terrorist attacks.

The ministry also expressed its sincere condolences and sympathy to the government of Pakistan and its people, and to the families of the victims of this heinous crime, as well as its wishes for a speedy recovery for all the injured, read the statement.

The statement also reaffirmed the Kingdom’s firm position calling for the rejection of violence and terrorism wherever it occurs.

Meanwhile, Algeria, Turkiye, Iranian and Iraq have also condemned the attacks.

On Friday, at least 53 people, including a police officer, lost their lives and several got injured in a massive “suicide attack” in Balochistan’s Mastung.

The explosion took place near an Eid Milad-un-Nabi (PBUH) procession.

“The bomber detonated himself near the vehicle of the Deputy Superintendent of Police,” Deputy Inspector General of Police Munir Ahmed told Reuters, adding that the blast took place near a mosque where people were gathering for a Eid Milad-un-Nabi (PBUH) procession.

Moreover, two more blasts killed at least five people and injured many inside a mosque in KP’s Hangu area on Friday.

The incident took place during the Friday prayers sermon in a mosque, with a capacity of 70 to 80 people, near a police station.

A portion of the mosque collapsed after the twin blasts. Many got trapped under the rubble.

Powerful explosions occurred as the second sermon began, causing damage to a part of the mosque and the roof, the police said.

@Parvez, how can it change when the people and the ones ruling the people remain the same? Is change expected to come from space? Don’t blame others for the shortcomings of our country, unless you meant pak army as their proxy, then can your statement holds a little credibility. It’s not like Jews are coming and stealing the shoes from mosques, or trash lining the streets, it’s us, it’s not like Muslims are peaceful, you can’t get 5 Sunnis to agree on a matter let alone the Shias, Pakistan is its own worst enemy and at the centerfold is Pakistani version of Islam.

@Hilarious, You are talking about social change and you are correct. I am pointing out geo political maneuvering and the double standards adopted by powerful nations, in order to achieve their own objectives. Shutting your eyes to this only helps them and makes matters worse for our country.

@Parvez, the only double standards adopted have been via our military, playing the victim while being the perpetrator. When the military is up for grabs to the highest bidder, this is what you get. They aren’t here to look after your interests or mine, just theirs and their dollar overlords, My eyes are not shut, which is why the blame begins and lies within, not some outside force. It wasn’t the Americans or the Israelis that gave the swat terrorists circa 2010’s a free hand which displaced 1.8 million people, and then they were let go, the Americans or the Jews or the Indians weren’t hiding terrorists in their back yards, we were and are, you cannot play the victim while instigating in the same atrocities. Even the APS instigator was let go, they are for no one but boots for hire to the highest bidder. And if you’d like to learn how atrocious they can be against their own people, read up on the war on Bangladesh (anything other than pak studies should suffice)

The problem the root problem whether anyone agrees or disagrees, likes it or dislikes it is the constant use of religion as a tool to divide and brainwash people, which in turn automatically fuels intolerance and hatred, also gives gifts like the blasphemy law, which won’t safeguard the religion in anyway or shape, but will surely help in evolving us backwards. Just the part where teaching cleanliness is half of faith, we’d rather teach this world is a sinful and dirty place.

@Hilarious, I respect your view and it has merit and you are entitled to it.....but your oversimplification and placing the blame on one party, while others were equally or more so to blame is, in my view, not correct. Thank you for your knowledgeable responses.
