The bombing sought and achieved its aimof killing scores of innocent people specifically targeting members of the Shia Hazara community and I condemn these terrorist attacks in the strongest terms.

He said bombings and killings are not justified in Islam and those carrying out such acts are enemies of Islam and Pakistan, who want to weaken the foundations of Pakistan and divide it on sectarian lines. He appealed to all Pakistanis to unite.
