After the Karachi blast – in which more than 45 people have died and many have been injured; some 200 houses have been destroyed, and an equal number of shops gutted – all important government functionaries issued routine statements, condemning the blast and expressing solidarity with the victims. Instead of issuing such statements, will the government ever bother to take concrete steps to stop the killings of innocent people?

Post-terror attack actions are not what the people deserve; it is the prevention of such incidents that is the responsibility of the government and law-enforcement authorities. Also, while the Sindh chief minister has announced compensation for the blast victims, our record on such matters is not good.
