RIYADH: A cross-section of the Pakistani community stood in complete unanimity in the hour of grief and strongly condemned the “cowardly” act of terrorism at the Bacha Khan University in northwestern Pakistan on Wednesday.
Javed Akhtar Javed, president and chief organizer of Halqa-e-Fikr-o-Fun, a voluntary organization of the Pakistani community in the Kingdom, denounced the terror attack describing it as “an act of cowardice,” saying that community members were shocked to hear about this “national tragedy.”
“We are grieved to learn of this. Although we are away from home, we stand firm with our government to defeat terrorism in all possible manner, even if it includes being tougher on terrorists,” Javed said.
Rashid Butt, senior vice president of Pakistan Muslim League in the Kingdom, condemned the terror attack as an act of cowards in a bid to hide their failures, and disturb peace in the country.
“This is a very, very tragic and unfortunate incident,” he said, and asserted that terrorism has to be defeated once and for all.
Mohammed Riyaz Chaudhary, a veteran member of the Pakistani community working with King Fahd National Library, denounced the terror act saying it shows the ugly facets of terrorism.
“This is very much against the teachings of Islam and only exposes the inhuman face of the perpetrators of terrorism,” he noted.
Chaudhary Faryad, a prominent Pakistani businessman in Riyadh, condemned the act of terror as a “senseless and inhuman act” and urged his government to punish the perpetrators of such heinous crimes by going tough on extremists.
