"We Want Peace In the World....... Extremism Destroy Our Society and anti-state element do the same Job as did by our enemy a decade ago. Don't know why they target ANP/PPP/MQM, why not JUI/JU and other so-called religious parties

The reason why those cowards are targetting ANP is not because ANP is secular; all parties believing in democracy, constitution of Pakistan and current judicial system are secular according to Taliban. They target ANP only because they believe that it poses greatest ideological threat to them by eduacting Pashtuns, making them moderate, educated & progressive human beings.

It is a very sad incident and the perpetrators need to be exposed and given exemplary punishments. May Allah save his life. Long live Chief Minister Ameer Haider Hoti and ANP ZINDABAAD.
