Pakistan condemns terrorist attacks in Iraq

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Islamabad, March 2, IRNA -- Pakistan Tuesday strongly condemned a 
series of terrorist attacks on the holy shrines in Karbala and in 
Baghdad in which scores of people were killed and several wounded. 
"These are acts of sacrilege and desecration, committed without 
regard to the solemnity of the occasion or to the innocent pilgrims. 
These attacks are even more heinous as they have been carried out 
on 10th of Muharram," a Foreign Office statement said. 
It said the government and the people of Pakistan were deeply 
shocked and grieved over the loss of life and conveyed their heartfelt
condolences to the bereaved families and the citizens of Iraq, state 
APP news agency reported. 
"Terrorism has no sanction or place in Islam. These are cruel and 
senseless killings and a disservice to Islam, which enjoins peace and 
amity." 
The statement also urged the international community, specially 
the Muslim countries to act together to foil the evil designs of 
terrorists, "who are out to create chaos and discord, and to fight 
terrorism in all its forms and manifestations".
