Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) President and Member Parliament, Ms Mehbooba Mufti has strongly condemned today’s dastardly terror attack on a university in Charsadda area of Peshawar, Pakistan in which several persons including students and teachers were killed and scores others injured. “It is a cowardly act of brutality that has claimed lives of the innocents,” Ms Mehbooba said in a statement issued here today. “My heart goes out to everyone who lost their loved ones in today’s cowardly terror attack in the Bacha Khan University, Charsadda. I share their pain and offer my deepest condolences,” she said and added those who attacked innocent students and citizens have no religion the perpetrators are enemies of mankind. “We stand united with the people and the Government of Pakistan in their resolve to fight the menace of terrorism and condemn use of violence under any circumstance,” she said and added that the atrocity of this proportion should outrage the feelings of every human being. Ms Mehbooba said the attack on a school in Peshawar, Pakistan in December 2014 and the recent attack on an airbase in Pathankote area of Punjab are a grim reminder of how the terrorists are trying to destabilize the region by shedding the blood of innocents. She said such gruesome and heinous attacks only reiterate the inevitability of greater cooperation between India and Pakistan to eliminate the scourge of terrorism from the region.
