According to available information, gunmen who had arrived in a white car had opened indiscriminate small arms and RPG grenade attacks at the  bus and the escort vehicles that was transferring the Sri Lankan cricketers to the stadium. 

Security fears

Islamist insurgents who have staged high-profile attacks on civilian targets before are out of control, they are threat to all nation.

 

Pakistani terrorists had a plan to kidnap all players and keep hostage for their big benefit and demand. The lawless country is run by corrupted leaders have become a safe haven for terrorist organization. They attacked India time and again. And Pakistan has supported.

Eight people including five policemen were killed in the shoot out.

In a coordinated attack, the assailants ambushed the convoy carrying the squad and match officials at a traffic circle 100 yards (meters) from the main sports stadium in the eastern city of Lahore, triggering a 15-minute gunbattle with police guarding the vehicles.

None of the attackers was killed or captured at the scene, city police chief Haji Habibur Rehman said. Authorities did not speculate on the identities of the attackers or their motives.

The attack reinforced perceptions that nuclear-armed Pakistan is veering out of control under militant attack and will end hopes of international cricket teams — or any sports teams — playing in the country for months, if not years. Even before the incident, most cricket teams choose not to tour the country because of security concerns.

 

 

Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Sherry Rehman told

Attack on Sri Lankan team is an attempt to spoil Pak reputation . In an exclusive chat with Geo News, Sherry said president and prime minister have strongly denounced the attack and prime minister has ordered immediate enquiry of the incident and a report would be compiled soon.

She said security forces took the control of the area and there is no need to be panic. Foolproof security arrangements were made for the team. Governor Punjab Salman Taseer was also reached the scene soon after the attack.

 The TV news says the way the Pakistan authority is investigating the location and used arms it is apparent that they are destroying the evidence of crime.  Without wearing gloves and precaution measure they are handling   arms , used articles and everything  arbitrarily in the crime location. This evidence show Pakistan authority will not arrest and book the perpetrators to justice. 

 

Some interesting fact:

Pakistan is the center or link of most terror activities in the past  occured in South Asia , Middle East even in America and Europe .

Most terrorism done by Taliban, Al-quida, Laskar-e-Taiba etc. and ISI linked

Most terrorists are Muslim and their faith is Islam.

Most Muslim countries have some terrorism support, they say jehad or sharia law.

Most Muslim are religious they think  Koran is their only book of knowledge, so they don’t care for education and knowledge. But they are jealous of western lifestyle and well-off condition.

The most places Muslim dominate turn into hell, they ruin the economy, they ruin political stability, they ruin education and science ,freedom, freedom of expression, civilization, human rights etc.

Most Muslim try to turn a country into an Islamic country whenever they get majority.

Most Muslim show religious and bigot when others show secular and tolerant.

Pakistan and other Muslim countries speak a lot lies they call it a diplomacy.

 

 

 

 Drawing attention and sympathy  from International community Pakistan made it a regular practice . Every time it promises to curb terrorism and welfare of Pakistanis, as soon as the resource reaches them they use the money/resources  via ISI for terrorism and islamisation, because they believe They can have a share in Kashmir in the pretext of Azad Kashmir.

International community knows well India and Pakistan was created out of British India. And princely state Kashmir has legally and willfully has joined India. Pakistan has to free the part of Kashmir they illegally occupied.  They think only proxy war by terrorist outfit can materialize their unborn dream.

It has been noticed the more civilized nation want to avoid war and pamper  Muslim, the more Muslim countries think they are expanding and winning. It should be checked.

 

Are UN, International Communities and US so fool that for last sixty years a country become so fragile and weak it is ruled sometimes by civilian Government and some time  by military dictator it is always demanding money and resources and promising all false.

 

The Indian government, which had ordered its players to steer clear of Pakistan, said the incident proved Islamabad was doing nothing to combat known militant networks.

‘It reminds us it is the responsibility of the incumbent government to take all precautions and all steps, particularly when the international community wants member countries to take certain positive steps to fight against terrorism,’ Foreign Minister Pranab Mukherjee told reporters.

India’s Minister of State for External Affairs Anand Sharma said the attack underscored ‘the enormity of the threat’ emerging from Pakistan, while India’s governing Congress party branded Pakistan ‘the epicentre and fountainhead of terror.’

‘Every country in the world must unite against this scourge by isolating the country and demanding immediate concrete results,’ Congress spokesman Abhishek Singhvi said.

 

After joining the so-called “war on terror” following the attacks on the United States in September 2001, Pakistan saw a significant rise in attacks by tribal movements and groups linked to the Taliban and al-Qaeda.

The security forces have borne much of the brunt of the violence but hundreds of civilians have also been killed.
