Karachi Ashura Blast on MA Jinnah Road

By Altaf Khan • Dec 28th, 2009 • Category: Politics • 25 Comments

A powerful bomb blast occurred in the mourning procession being taken out in connection with the Yaum-e-Ashur. The blast occurred in the front part of the central mourning procession near Denso Hall at Jamia Cloth Market triggering stampede.

All other Ashura processions have been stopped throughout the city and the law and order situation is getting out of hand and MA Jinnah Road is on fire.

One wishes and hope that no more such tragic incident happens.

But only if the Shia leaders could have sensed the coming terrorism threats and would have held processions indoor.
