ISLAMABAD: Afghan President Hamid Karzai phoned President Asif Ali Zardari on Wednesday evening and condemned the murderous attack on Malala Yousafzai and her school fellows. He expressed grief and shock over the attack, which he called as cowardly.
Thanking President Karzai, President Zardari said that Malala and her school friends symbolized the quest of our children for education and social uplift and demonstrated the national spirit to stand up to militants and extremists.
He said such incidents of barbarity strengthened the national resolve to fight militants to the finish. President Zardari said that the culprits would not escape retribution and would not go unpunished.
