COPAA Condemns Karachi Bomb Blast

Los Angeles, CA: The Council of Pakistan American Affairs (COPA) has strongly condemned the killing of four people and the wounding of 54 by a blast caused by explosive-laden car in Karachi, Pakistan on March 2
In a statement issued by the Council it was stated, “COPAA denounces the barbaric act of this senseless killing of an American diplomat, a Pakistani chauffeur, a Pakistani police officer and a fourth unidentified person in Karachi. The 54 people injured in this blast include both Pakistani and other nationals. These innocent civilians were simply going about their normal daily lives. Nothing can justify the uprooting of these innocent victims and their family’s lives in this manner.
“COPAA believes that this shameful and immoral act is against not just Pakistan and the United States, but really against the world community. There can be no acceptable justification to this horrific act irrespective of religious, political, cultural or national affiliation.
“COPPA believes that the persons who carried out this perverted act, the supporters of these acts, the financers of these acts and the people who condone these act are all responsible and one day answerable for these reprehensible activities.
“COPAA sends its prayers and condolences to the family and friends of those killed by this very shameful act. We send our thoughts and prayers also to the injured for their quick recovery,” the statement concluded.
