SHAFAQNA-The Muslim Jama`at Canada strongly denounces the explosion at a public park in Lahore, Pakistan on Easter Sunday. Tragically, more than 65 civilians have been reported killed, with many victims being women and children. Hundreds of innocent people were left injured in this horrific act of violence.
The attack comes a little more than a year after the brutal 2014 Peshawar school attack, which resulted in the death of more than 150 people, primarily children and recent attack at a University killing over 30 people.
“We are deeply distressed to learn of the gruesome and senseless act of violence in Pakistan,” said Mr. Lal Khan Malik, National President of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama`at Canada. “The innocent victims and their families are in our sincerest thoughts and prayers.”
