Deeply saddened to learn about the terrorist attack in Peshawar madrassa. Mind is numb at the thought of our children bleeding again. Unfathomable loss for the families… Lots and lots of prayers for the victims. May Allah protect us from all evil.

#Peshawar blast is a sad reminder that those cowards who hide in the dark to stalk innocent Pakistanis are completely aligned with the forces which create instability & chaos. They will not succeed.

Cowardly terrorist attack on children this morning in Peshawar. There is a clear strategy to destabilize Pakistan. It’s a multi tier co ordinated effort by both external & internal cowards. But the nation stands resolute & our resolve for peace & progress will not be stopped.
