Jamaat-e-Islami Tehsil Ameer Dr Anwar Raza and Mushtaq Ahmed Joyia have strongly condemned the bomb blast in Karachi and expressed sorrow and grief over the death of senior police officer Ch Muhammad Aslam and other police officials.

In a joint press statement issued here, they paid rich tribute to the bravery, commitment and courage of slain police officers and stated that their tragic departure indeed was a great loss for both the Police Department and the nation.

Demanding immediate inquiry of the incident, the JI Ameer pressed government to bring culprits to the book. They said that such cowardly attacks could never deter the nation and the law enforcement agencies’ personnel to pursue their struggle against terrorism.

“We express solidarity with the bereaved families and stand by the people of Karachi whom Chaudhry Aslam and his associates were endeavouring to protect from permanent threat of terrorism, lawlessness and target killing”, they  concluded.
