Leave a comment

Islamabad July 15, 2016: Former President Asif Ali Zardari has strongly condemned the barbaric terrorist attack in Nice, France on Bastille Day celebrations on Thursday that killed over 80 innocent men, women and children saying that the people of Pakistan shared the grief and sorrow of the victims’ families.

No words are strong enough to denounce the barbarity of the crime and no words are powerful enough to extricate the grief stricken families from the shock of a loss so overwhelming, he said in a statement today.

On this sad occasion our thoughts and prayers are with victims and their families said the former President.

The rising incidents of terror attacks across geographical boundaries and ethnic and religious divides underlines once again the global nature of the problem and calls for putting our heads together to find a collective solution, he said.

A long term solution to fighting militancy has to be based on fighting the mindset that breeds extremism.

It is unfortunate that in our own country we have ignored the promises made in the National Action Plan on reforming education and curriculum. NAP indeed was ridiculed when public funds in Khyber Pakhtunkwa were recently diverted to a seminary known for sympathies with militants and extremists, he said.

The need for implementing education and curriculum related reforms promised in the National Action Plan (NAP) has never been as great as it is today, he said.
