11 more fall prey to sectarian strife in Quetta

At least 11 people, 10 of them Shias, were killed and four others wounded when a passenger van was attacked on its way into the city from a nearby Hazara town, a few hundred metres from the office of the deputy inspector general (Operations).
The banned militant outfit Lashkar-e-Jhangvi claimed responsibility for the deadly assault. Ten of the passengers, including a woman, were killed on the spot and a rickshaw driver passing by was also shot and killed in the attack. The driver of the vehicle lost control after the intense firing and it plunged into a ditch by the road. Police rushed to the spot and the people gathered there moved the bodies and the injured to the nearby Bolan Medical Complex.
Eyewitness Subzal Khan told Pakistan Today that three gunmen were waiting in a white car and when the van carrying the Persian-speaking Hazara people reached there, they got out of the car and started shooting indiscriminately with an assault rifle. He said the attackers then fled from the scene. After the incident, some 300 Shias from the Hazara community rushed to the hospital and a violent protest erupted. They set on fire two vehicles and the motorcycle of a cameraman from a foreign news agency and damaged at least three shops and a hotel.
They also threw stones at traffic on main Brewery Road. Police soon arrived to diffuse the situation, however, after some of the protesters fired shots into the air. Balochistan Police Inspector General Rao Amin Hashim told Pakistan Today that 250 suspects were taken into custody in various raids in the wake of Friday’s attack on pilgrims at a bus terminal in Sariab. He said police had already started screening the suspects and would release them if they were proven innocent.
Meanwhile, Ali Sher Haideri, who claims to be a spokesman for Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, called various newspapers and TV channels and claimed responsibility for the attack, saying attacks on Shias would continue.

    My observations on my recent stay in my beloved Pakistan.Paris
    This is the failure of PPP-Zardari government. The Zardari trap of wickedest formation of coalition cartel system exploitative to loot, plunder by trillion of rupees, ruin state enterprises, destroy them nut by nut, bolt by bolt eg,PIA,Railways,PSML,NICL,WAPDA, OGRA,OGDC,ruin law &security by enslaving Pakistan to drones,IMF,UK,USA to perpetuate power unto dynasty and amass trillion of more assets along with the wickedest, Mir Jaffers,Mir Sadiks corrupts of Pakistan in excecutive,prime minister, ministers obstructing constitutional superamacy,rule of law, ,munafak,qatils,billion dollars bathakhors,taget killers,blackmailers clout of MQM,ML-Q,MQM,PPPZARDARI,ANP etc whom the Karachi based TV channels and their TV anchors,newscasters,TV anyalsts,biased columnists who abet their national crimes by projecting them as ‘messiahs’, the devil incarnates, enemies of poor and Pakistan. Ever since PPP-Z, MQM, MMA, ANP, ML-Q came into power, the target killings in Baluchistan have escalated without any deterrent from Baluchistan coalition government of devils especially of Punjabis and not one action was taken to haul up the perpetrators to save ‘kusi’.Similarly, thousands of innocent people of Karachi killed by perpetrators of PPP-Z, MQM, ANP as revealed by Zulfikar Mirza for which PPPZ punished him to bury the dastasrdly,bloodbaths by MQN,.ANP,PPPZ under its bloodstained politics of coalition mafia culture to keep power and plunder the nation to destitution when there is NO; ‘roti,bijli,pani,dal,chawal,cheeni,ghost,ata,sabzi,fruit etc but 1000 % higher butchering prices than last four years and highest ever killing utility tariffs by thousand percent with no bijli,pani,gas etc but stomach crunching hunger and tyranny by PPP-Z,MQM,ANP,ML-Q.How unfortunate my country is that duel nationality holder absconder in London,MR Altaf Hussein almost daily gives live telecast from London of millions of dollars per telecasts and had been spreading for months treason,mutiny,sedition among jawans,generals on live TV speeches without ant action, objection from opportunists,power,money hungry PPP-Z?Sadly even no jurists,judiciary,defense personnel, opposition parties,Imran Khan ever objected excepting one anonymous caller in Pakistan,I heard while in my recent stay in my beloved country. I feel that esteemed SCP must not be beholden to MR Benazir Bhutto,PPPZ beneficiary of judicial movement MR Aitzaz Hasan etc for showing softest corner to PPP-Z government,MR Zardari,Raza Galani,Babar Awan, Rehman Malik and others. I would also request Chief Election Commission to change the name of Benazir INCOME support fund supported by perhaps two trillion rupees of starving poor money to National Welfare project since iby its name I came across hundreds of people who believed this money comes from Bilawal,Zardari,Bakhta war and instead a pre poll rigging generating two crore voters for the most corrupt, incompetent ‘zalim hukoomat’of PPP-Z..If this schemes or WASEELA juk type has to go,it must be funded from the purses of Zardari,Bilawal,Bakhtawar,Asifa,PPP workers etc.If Pakistan has to stay with supremacy of constitution, rule of law, Judicial independence. justice for all and equal then all those who subvert independent, honest investigations and subvert justice, violate constitution should be punished in example for treason to constitution, rule of law,country and its poor people.During my recent stay I found only one anonymous caller,Jamal or Mustafa on TV channels in mad love with his poor people and Pakistan advocating for the cause of poor though his soul while TV anchors,newscasters,analsysts drawing salaries in seven –eight digits only speaking for their employers, masters or as loyalists to MQM,PPPZ being their paid ,party members,biased,prejudiced to project them as grand saviors-the devils incarnates. The earlier the nation gets rid of them the better..
