The State Minister and Chairperson, Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP) Marvi Memon visited the village of Baqa Dahiri in Sindh’s district of Shahdadpur where she offered condolence with the heirs of Siddique Dahiri and Raja Khaskheli who lost their lives in Sehwan suicide blast earlier in the week.

On behalf of the Prime Minister Mohammad Nawaz Sharif, Marvi Memon expressed sympathies with bereaved family members and offered Fateha for the departed souls. 

Talking to the media corps outside the residence of deceased Raja Khaskheli, the State Minister strongly condemned the suicide blast at the shrine of Hazrat Lal Shahbaz Qalanad and termed it a cowardly act of those who were playing with the lives of innocent people. 

She remarked that the government of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had been engaged in combating terrorism with iron hand and soon the peace would be prevailed in all over the country.

Meanwhile, a condolence reference for the martyrs of Hazrat Sakhi Lal Shahbaz Qalandar Sehwan Sharif was held at Shah Abdul Latif University (SALU), Khairpur. 

According to a media handout, a large number of teachers, officers, employees and students attended the reference. 

The participants of the reference demanded of the government to take strict security measures to secure the devotees at all the Shrines, Mosques, Imam Bargahs and others prominent places throughout the county to avert any untoward incident. 

Later, the participants also prayed for the security, integrity and peace of the country. They condemned the wave of recent terror attacks countrywide.
