Islamabad Airport Rocked by a Bomb Blast

In the second such incident within the past week, terror has shattered quiet of our city bringing death in its wake. According to news sources, a suspected suicide car bomber blew himself up after opening fire at Pakistan’s Islamabad International airport, killing himself and injuring others, security officials said. Eye witness accounts state that two men were seen going towards the V.I.P. Lounge of the airport, and started shooting at security officials when they were asked to stop. The dead include the bomber himself and two security officials but the number of injured is not yet confirmed. His accomplice has been arrested and is in custody.

Is this what our city has been reduced to? This will be our claim to fame; the capital of a Muslim state identified by the blood of innocents spilled by their own brethren in the name of faith or religion?

    They may be bearded … they may have screamed Laa Ilaha Illal Allah o Muhammad ur Rasool allah when died but this show of brutality is not Islam in any way … they may be doing it in Allah’s name but I, for one, do not consider them muslims – rest allah knows better … how to treat everyone according to their deeds in hereafter … Brutality and Voilence is not Islam … it will be written as their personal deeds… Wallah o alam …!
