OCTOBER 18 — is the day that has marked history of Karachi, and Pakistan, with blood!
The two bomb blasts left 140 people dead and hundreds injured! WHY? Nobody knows exactly why. Maybe, their sin was that they came to celebrate the return of their (self-)exiled leader, Benazir Bhutto, who was returning home after a span of about 8 years.
The cheerful celebration turned into mourning throng when a bomb blast immediately followed by another (after 90 seconds) very close to the truck on which BB was standing with other leaders of her party. The blasts took place at Karsaaz on Shahrah-e-Faisal.
Following is what happened:
BB thanking God after coming back to homeland after 8 years
Thousands of people who came from all parts of the country to welcome BB
Waving to the cheerful crowd
Blast took place setting 1 couple of vehicles on fire; BB’s truck also visible very close to the blast point
Volunteers taking the injured to ambulances for immediate treatment
The people of Karachi had not yet forgotten the killing of innocent people on 12th May, and this incident revived their fear of going out and enjoy life!!
I strongly condemn the blasts and want the responsible of these blasts should awarded the severest punishment!
