Terrorists are generally cowards who won’t hesitate to use any opportunity to grab international headlines by slaughtering innocent and defenceless civilians.
Nothing demonstrates this evil better than the callous attack on a government-run hospital in Quetta, Pakistan, during which a Taliban suicide bomb, packed with ball bearings, tore through the hospital on Monday, killing at least 70 people and injuring dozens of others.
What kind of a person attacks a building where hundreds of sick people cling to dear life? Terrorism cannot be justified. What happened in Pakistan is a crime against humanity by extremist militants carefully programmed to spill blood.
The world needs to redouble its efforts to bring to a halt the evil robbing innocent civilians worldwide of their God-given precious gift of life.
