QUETTA: Hazara Democratic Party (HDP) staged a noisy protest demonstration outside the Quetta Press Club on Saturday to condemn the suicide attack, which claimed 13 lives and injured 25 others on the occasion of Eidul Fitr.
It may be mentioned here that 13 persons were killed and 25 others, including women and children, sustained injuries in a deadly suicide attack on a place of Eid congregation in Marriabad, a Shiite dominated area of the provincial capital. The blast was so powerful that it destroyed 10 vehicles and damaged some nearby houses besides commercial establishments in the neighbourhood. The protesters chanted full-throated slogans against the government for its failure to protect the human lives.
The protesters were also carrying placards and banners in their hands in support of their demands. HDP Central Information Secretary Mohammad Raza Wakeel condemned the killings of innocent people and said no religion condoned the killings of innocent persons. He said that terrorists were visibly engaged in a civil war in the province on the pretext of sectarian issues.
