Islamabad Rocked By An Explosion

A powerful bomb blast rocked the capital city here leaving two persons dead and several others injured at this time. The powerful blast occurred in the parking area located on the backside of a five star hotel resulting in the death of two persons and several others wounded, leaving the people in the city in a state of panic and fear.

Police and security officials have cordoned off the area. My office and Asma’s were right next to the blast area, and we heard a loud thunder. As the sky is overcast we thought it was thunder from clouds, only to realise later it was a blast.

    Maybe the back entrance has low security compared to the front. The Namaz at the near by Masjids end around 2. The blast was after that.

    May Allah give relief to thoes at loss.

    Now there is one in Peshawar too. Time for a crack down on Mullahs, Madrassas and Taliban.
