Politicians including Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan and Muttahida Qaumi Movement chief Altaf Hussain condemned the target killing of 14 ethnic Hazaras in Quetta today (Tuesday).
They labelled the murder of the Hazaras as sectarian terrorism that needs to be curbed.
Khan, in a press release issued from his party office said that the responsibility for these deaths fell squarely on the current corrupt government who had failed in its duty to protect its citizens.
He said that due to this attitude of the government, the integrity of the state had been put in jeopardy.
MQM, in its released statement said that the state must prosecute the elements responsible for this heinous act.
They demanded that the state should take notice of the killing and take steps to ensure the protection of the people.
