Heartbroken Pakistanis mourn attack on Sehwan Sharif

Pakistan saw its 10th terrorist attack in 5 days yesterday when a bomb ripped through a crowded shrine of Lal Shahbaz Qalandar in Sehwan, killing at least 70 people, including 20 children and wounding hundreds.

People are shocked that terrorists would target a hub of peace and inclusivity.

Some are calling out the government for failing to ensure safety.

More are appalled at the dire lack of medical services in Sehwan and adjoining areas.

Some chose to highlight how the people came together to compensate for the absence of disaster management systems.

We pray for better times, but this tweet sums up Pakistan today:

The injured had to be moved to Karachi for basic sterilization. What has PPP been doing in Sindh for the past 10 years they have been in office.

Sincere heartfelt condolence on this tragic event. At the end of the day, faith and prayers will help tide the pain.

People have to understand there is no safety in Pakistan for a common man. So visiting such crowded places and religious activities on the streets and roads should be avoided

My heart goes out for those who had been killed or injured in attack.

@Jaideep adhvary Neither faith not prayers can do anything for such acts It is determination with planning that can only bear fruits.
