Bomb Blast Raise Security Concerns.

A road side bomb exploded in in Paposhnagar near Khilafat Chowk, reportedly injuring at least 20 people including women, children and two rangers personal only a few hours ago here in Karachi.

The bomb which is said to have been a homemade explosive device, planted on the road side was detonated probably using a remote control, when a shi’ite procession was passing by. Thankfully the device is said to have exploded near or under a moving vehicle, a white sedan which too was with the procession, which sheathed the force of the blast preventing larger number of casualties.

The key dates, the 9th and 10 of Muharram marked by Azza gatherings, processions by shi’ite and Tazia and Alam processions both by shi’ite and Sunies are just tomorrow, and although all security precautions are said to have been well in place this incident today does add to our concerns. We hope and pray that all goes well and peacefully during these two important days and hereafter.
