ISLAMABAD, 13th November 2016: The United Nations family in Pakistan strongly condemns the heinous attack yesterday on hundreds of people at the Shah Noorani shrine in Khuzdar, Balochistan.
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.
“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’. This attack is against this principle and other universal principles of common humanity”, said Neil Buhne, United Nations Pakistan Resident Coordinator and Humanitarian Coordinator.
