Pakistan: Muslim murders 53 at park as Christians were celebrating Easter

UPDATE: A Taliban group has claimed responsibility and says that it was targeting Christians.

“He says the area was crowded because Christians are celebrating the Easter holiday and many families were leaving the park when the blast occurred.”

PAKISTAN-UNREST-CHRISTIANS

“Tragedy strikes Lahore: Blast at Gulshan-e-Iqbal Park kills 53, injures 30 on Easter,” First Post, March 27, 2016:

A blast ripped apart a public park in Pakistan’s eastern city of Lahore, the capital of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s political heartland of Punjab, rescue officials said.

The deafening explosion — apparently caused by a suicide bomber — hit gate no.1 around 6:30 pm when the park was teeming with families, specially women and children, dazed witnesses said.

“At least 10 people have been killed in a blast outside Gulshan-e-Iqbal Park,” Jam Sajjad Hussain, spokesman for Rescue 112 said, adding that more than 30 people were injured and had been taken to various hospitals in the city. Most of the injured are women and children, Hussain said.

Senior police officer Haider Ashraf said the explosion took place Sunday in the parking area of Gulshan-e-Iqbal park. He says the explosion appeared to have been a suicide bombing, but investigations were ongoing.

He says the area was crowded because Christians are celebrating the Easter holiday and many families were leaving the park when the blast occurred. He says the death toll could still rise as many of the wounded were in a critical condition. In fact, Pakistani newspaper Dawn tweeted that the death toll was at least 53. Emergency has been declared at all government hospitals in Lahore, the paper said.

ARY News said five to six kg of explosives may have been used in the explosion, which was heard in a large part of Lahore, capital of Punjab province.

Some reports said the bomb might have been fixed on a parked motorbike….

    Where is the outrage at the UN and all the so-called human rights organizations?

    If Muslims at prayer were the victims of non-Muslims in Britain would these organizations be so indifferent.

        So true. I am yet to read the version where it says the Jews caused the incident in Pakistan. How refreshing to know the bomber hasn’t been labelled a Mossad Agent that was dressed like a Muslim to give the religion of peace a bad name…yet.

      Look for outrage shown by Obama by going dancing somewhere. After all we should not stop out activities of daily life because of the terror acts of some “extremists” who are not Muslims!(sarc off)

    I wouldn’t want to live in a Muslim country as a non-Muslim to begin with. I would do everything in my power to emigrate. If I were a Christian in a Muslim country like Pakistan, I think I would worship God at home until I could move to the West or to Israel, wherever.

      We should allow no migrants into our countries except Christian families, for their own protection and our better security.

      It’s called discrimination by Leftard traitors and intelligence by anyone who has a scrap of it – not our poiticians, evidently!

    And if the West does become Muslim, and on current trends it will before the end of this century, expect this to be the grim future for the non-Muslim population.

    Let Obozo visit a mosque in the U.S. again in another pathetic public relations stunt and tell us with a straight face the baldfaced lie that the very name of this vile, supremacist ideology means “peace.”

    An ideology is judged in three ways — 1) by the explicit words contained within its founding texts; 2) by its history; and, 3) by the behavior and conduct of its followers and religious leaders, past and present.

    It cannot be disputed that the ideology of “Submission” is a fascist, totalitarian ideology of hate, atrocities and conquest that is utterly incapable of peaceful co-existence with other faiths. 1,400 years of history and contemporary atrocities amply demonstrate this fact.

    The free world will have to make a decision about how to confront this ideology, soon. Because, the threat is only metastasizing.

    Every Christian is a POTENTIAL target of Muslims in Pakistan which literally means’LAND OF THE PURE { EVIL}. Let us see if Obama condemns that attack on Christians on EASTER SUNDAY .The West must open its doors for the PERSECUTED CHRISTIANS of Pakistan who would prove loyal citizens because of their faith. Muslims including Obama are anti Christ and Anti Christian and one can expect nothing good from them. Every believing and practising Christian in America should vote for TRUMP and save that GREAT COUNTRY from going to DOGS of ISLAM.

    The death toll will probably be higher.

    But as bad as the atrocity is, the mainstream media response to it is equally atrocious and diabolical. Not a hint that it was a mass murder carried out by Muslims on Christians, let alone the truth – that it was carried out by Muslims as a direct commandment of their religion – Islam.

    BBC – “Pakistan explosion leaves many dead at Lahore park” Many? How many? Women? Children? Who were they? Why? Maybe just terrorists, terrorising innocent moderate Pakistani Muslims.

    CNN “At least 50 dead 200 injured in city blast” Not a hint as to the perpetrators, the victims or the reasons for the mass murder. Not even a headline. The banner headline? – a protester gives a Nazi salute at a parade in Brussels – a far worse crime than the massacres in Brussels, Pakistan or anywhere by the Muslims.

    Off Topic
    A large gathering of Belgians, presently at the scene of the Brussels massacre, is being described as a “mob” and ” hate filled racists” by some elements of the MSM.
    Muslims singing the praises of the Jihadists murderers would no doubt be described by the MSM as “peaceful demonstrators” exercising their democratic rights

      Yes–murdering innocent Infidels is not “hate filled”, but protesting it is. Repulsive moral inversion.

    In the meantime, the Pope kisses the feet of the murderers, Obama dances the tango and David Cameron urges Christians and non-Muslims to “reach out” with renewed fervour towards their murderers.

    And this has come on the day the Pope was telling us we can beat IS with “weapons of love”. I thought the French father who told his son we can beat them with flowers after the Paris atrocity was bad enough, but this potty pontiffs advice really takes the biscuit.

    Muslim murderers are doing only what they have been taught by their mosques. All this talk by Obama, Muslims and their cohorts is simply bunkum! Every Muslim is responsible in propagating this murderous cult! The sooner t s eradicated the sooner the humanity can live in peace!
