In his message, President Ebrahim Raeisi condemned the cowardly act of terrorism in Pakistan’s Baluchistan region on Friday.
Raeisi said, “This indiscriminate act has once again shown that the terrorists, with their ignorance and distance from the Islamic merciful teachings, have no goal but to create division among Muslims.”
The president further noted that the terrorists “will fail to achieve their illegitimate and inhuman goals.”
At least 52 people, including a police officer, were killed while around 50 were injured in what officials believe was a suicide blast near a Rabiul Awwal procession in Balochistan’s Mastung district on Friday, local Pakistani English newspaper Dawn reported.
