Sunni suicide bomber blew himself up at the gate of a Shia mosque

 At least 70 people have been killed and 225 others injured after a Sunni suicide bomber blew himself up at the gate of a Shia mosque in Pakistan’s Punjab province.

Sunday’s blast in the city of Chakwal came a day after eight paramilitary soldiers were killed in a suicide attack in Islamabad.

Rescue authorities are still searching through the wreckage where the explosion occurred during a Shia religious congregation of at least 2,000 people. The mosque was jam-packed with Shiites at the time of the explosion.

As soon as members from inside the mosque tried to come out, the Sunni suicide bomber dressed in black robes, got close to the gate and detonated his explosive device.

There are more innocent Shia people being killed by Al Qaida and Taliban in this terrorist country of Pakistan, which makes it even more important that NATO cleans up this dangerous country of such potential peace threatening elements. Shias make up at least 20 per cent of Pakistan’s Sunni Muslim-dominated population of 160 million people. There have always been attacks on Shias ever since Pakistan came in to creation 65 years ago; at least 4,000 people have died in outbreaks of sectarian violence since the late 1980s.

  1. That country will always have attacks like these…I don’t know if it is worth it.

  2. Another day, another bomb, another atrocity committed in the name of Islam by those who believe that apart from them all other Muslims are “kafirs”as today”s attack was perpetrated on a religious place for Shia community.
    Once again it will be agonising to listen to right wing Mullahs and their following in general public who still think that this is the reaction for America”s war in Afghanistan. Please wake up from your deep slumber and at least say that this is bad. If Pakistan needs something today very badly, that is the consensus on what we are faced with. This consensus has eluded us so far but with any luck there will come a point where the “thakedars” of Islam will take notice of the mounting piles of dead and say that what is happening to our country is wrong.
    I believe that this is the main problem with the Pakistani counter terror activities that many of the own countrymen believe that this is not our war. I know that India’s RAW is paying these so called Jihadists to wreak havoc in Pakistan and to support such people who are in the payroll of our enemies is a crime in itself.
    I would like to ask the readers of this site to comment on this issue today. When will the general public and some of our politician say that this is our war and we have to fight it?
