Strongly condemn the attack on PSX aimed at tarnishing our relentless war on terror. Have instructed the IG & security agencies to ensure that the perpetrators are caught alive & their handlers are accorded exemplary punishments. We shall protect Sindh at all costs.

Someone thought they could pull of a Mumbai in Karachi.

Our police have guns from this century. They shoot back, so do our guards.
We have Sindh Rangers within the city, don't have to call in shootables from the other side of the country.
Sindh Rangers come in yawning and cleanup the area like it's just another Monday.
Life goes on as usual. Our people are resilient.
