Ashura blast in Karachi

Unrest in parts of Karachi, dozens of vehicles torched
KARACHI: A powerful bomb blast occurred in the mourning procession being taken out in connection with the Yaum-e-Ashur, Geo News reported Monday.

The blast occurred in the front part of the central mourning procession near Denso Hall at Jamia Cloth Market triggering stampede. The security forces are appealing to the people to stay calm.

The ambulances soon arrived on the blast site and injured are being shifted to the nearby hospital. The emergency has been declared in all hospitals of the city.

The organizers stressed that they will complete the route the procession and will end it as per previously set scheduled.
It all began from suicide bombings in mosques, when the Muslims didn't gave up praying they started targeting students, maybe, a political base to backtrack the enlightening youth of Pakistan. When nothing seem to stop the ever-spirited nation the terrorists decided to come up with a plan that unravels the peace of the city by bombing a group of people that were on their way to Kharadar for religious proceedings on 10th of Muharram. A way to split and create a rift between two sects, Shi'a and Sunni groups.
After pleas from religious scholars of both the sects, the enraged band of people has calmed down and the proceedings have been resumed and they are on their way to Kharadar.
