Following horrific suicide bombings during Eid Milad un Nabi, a Muslim holiday celebrating the Prophet Muhammad’s birthday, Pakistan was shaken. Caretaker Interior Minister Sarfraz Ahmed Bugti has alleged the involvement of India’s intelligence agency, RAW, in the attacks. Minister Bugti expressed concerns about New Delhi’s alleged role in destabilizing Pakistan but reiterated a commitment to a zero-tolerance policy against terrorism.
He assured that Pakistani authorities are aware of the culprits and pledged to seek justice for the victims. A comprehensive investigation is ongoing, with medical care being provided to the injured under the guidance of COAS Gen Asim Munir. The nation stands united against terrorism.
In response to the attacks, a case has been filed against the unknown perpetrators at the Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) police station in Quetta. The first bombing targeted an Eid Milad un Nabi procession in Balochistan, resulting in 54 casualties. The second attack occurred at a mosque within a police station compound in KP, claiming five lives and causing the building’s collapse.
These tragic events unfolded as a mosque in Balochistan was packed with worshippers leaving after the Eid-e-Milad Un Nabi procession when the suicide bomber struck.
