Yesterday’s unfortunate attack on Chinese consulate in Karachi claimed the lives of father and son along with the brave officers.
Haji Niaz Muhammad and Zahir Shah, his son, were present at the location when the terror attack took place. The father-son duo travelled to Karachi from Quetta on Friday, because Chinese consulate called them for getting fingerprinted as part of the visa process.
Ahmed Shah, Haji Niaz’s other son, told a local news outlet that his father was a trader who used to get cloth from China and sold it in Quetta.
Habibur Rehman, Haji Niaz Muhammad’s brother expressed his grief over the incident and showed disappointment that despite them losing two family members to terrorism, none of the government officials approached them, offered any condolences or help to the bereaved family. The family further had to bear the added burden of bringing their dead bodies to their home in private vehicles, as the Sindh government completely refused to cooperate with them. With the tragedy of losing two loved ones on the same day, the family had to put up with such behaviour of insensitivity as well.
But what worsened the tragedy in a display of highly irresponsible journalism is that both of the victims were profiled as ‘terrorists’ by a media channel. The image was shared by the social media community, which regarded it as pitiful and shameful.
People also shared their thoughts and called it the height of irresponsibility. Though so far no statement has been made to clear the ambiguity.
