IMG_0856Sajjad Karim MEP has declared Europe’s support for Pakistan in the wake of recent terrorist attacks in both regions.
Dr Karim’s words came today at the European Parliament in Strasbourg during a debate on the latest attacks in Lahore.
He emphasised the need for the two sides to work together in solidarity to defeat any terrorist atrocities and that Europe was fully behind Pakistan during its time of need.
Quoting Jinnah Dr Karim stated:
“You are free to go to your temples to your mosques or any other places of worship in Pakistan. You may belong to any religion caste or creed that has nothing to do with the state – the founding principles of Pakistan to which we refer in our resolution.
“Every person killed, maimed or injured in these cowardly attacks in Lahore is a Pakistani. If we seek to split them into categories in our resolutions we do a disservice to their memory.
“States and actors who support terrorist networks should know – slowly you are being exposed. Your operatives are and will be captured, and eventually you will be exposed completely.
“When terrorists attacks, whether its Paris or Peshawar, London or Lahore, or indeed Brussels – they attack us all and we stand shoulder to shoulder as one to face them.”
