ISLAMABAD, 17th February 2017: The United Nations family in Pakistan stands together with all in Pakistan in shock and grief after the heinous attack yesterday on hundreds of children, women and men at the Lal Shahbaz Qalandar shrine in Sehwan Sharif, Sindh. We are appalled by this attack on hundreds of people while they were praying. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights says ‘Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion’.
We express our profound condolences and sympathy to the families of all those who lost their lives or were injured in this heartless attack. Our thoughts today are with the victims and their families.
