  1. May Allah continue to foil their plots. Furthermore, on them shall the wheel of misfotune recoil. May He give speedy recovery to our injured brethren.

  2. @Zafar Syed..the Culprit is the state which teaches its subjects to kill in the name of faith(read:the blasphemy law)
    Why should it delve into matters of who is an infidel or who is not! It is this meddling which leads to acts such as these!
    Yesterday “Hindu/Jew” was synonymous with “traitor”, today ‘Ahmedi/Qadyani” is added to the same list and I have my fingers crossed over who will be next!Shias anyone?

  3. We pray to Allah for the speedy recovery of the injured and for the safety of Ahmadi Muslims in Pakistan, Ameen.
    We hope the culprits are apprehended soon and brought to justice, whoever they are.
