LAHORE: The civil society has condemned the suicide attack on SP CID Karachi Chaudhry Aslam and the young Aitzaz Hassan who lost his life while overpowering a suicide bomber in Hangu district.
The civil society will also hold candle light vigil to pay tribute to the national heroes on Wednesday.
In a press statement issued on Monday, Civil Society Network Pakistan stated that the attack on humanity was failure of government to protect the lives of citizens. It added that the fundamental duty of the state was to provide protection to the common man, but the terrorists were moving freely along streets and fearlessly carrying out criminal activities. The society claimed that the writ of the government was nowhere, which itself a clear violation of the 1973 Constitution.
President Civil Society Network Abdullah Malik said that the young Aitzaz Hassan and Ch. Aslam were real heroes of the nation as they sacrificed their lives for humanity and for the nation. He said that the civilised nation never forget their heroes and, “We too remember our heroes who save the lives of hundreds of school fellows and civilian.”
He further observed that terrorists were enemies of the humanity and did not deserve any dialogue to be held with them. “Even they are not Muslims as Islam is the religion of peace and humanity. The teachings of Islam are for the dignity of humanity, he said.
Abdullah further said that government must take strict action against terrorists who have boldly claimed the responsibilities of recent attacks in Karachi and Hangu. The brave boy like Aitzaz Hassan was the real hero who saved the lives of his schoolmates by sacrificing his precious life and he will be remembered for a long time in the history of Pakistan. Ch. Aslam performed his duty with honesty and made example for his fellows that he was real a brave officer, they added.
Malik added that a candle light vigil will be held at Charing Cross on Wednesday evening wherein civil society organisations would pay tribute to real heroes of the nation.
