Pakistani Celebrities Express Their Sorrow At The Attack On The Karachi Police Headquarters

Celebrities have now voiced their worries about the current spike in targeted attacks and sent their sympathies to the armed officers defending the nation from radicals

Friday evening was abruptly interrupted when a group of terrorists assaulted the Karachi Police Office (KPO) immediately after Maghrib prayers while carrying suicide vests, automatic guns, and grenades. Security personnel searched the building floor by floor in an effort to find the assailants after a three-hour lengthy gunfight.

After killing the three militants, the authorities retook the building, a government spokeswoman said. Two police officers and a Rangers official were among the four people killed as a result of the incident, while 16 other people were hurt. Only a few weeks prior, an explosion at a police mosque in Peshawar claimed the lives of over a hundred people, predominantly police officers. The Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) claimed responsibility for that attack.

Now, famous people have voiced their worries about the current spike in targeted attacks and have sent their sympathies to the armed personnel defending the nation against extremists.

Maya Ali expressed her anguish by saying, “My second home, Karachi, is in such terrible shape, and it breaks my heart. Everyone’s safety is in my thoughts and prayers.” By saying, “I pray for Karachi, and express my love and respect to the jawans who took part in the operation,” Farhan Saeed also showed his support.

Samina Peerzada, a seasoned actor, tweeted, “My Karachi,” as Adnan Siddiqui pleaded for mercy. “I’m asking for prayers for everyone’s health and safety. Allah be merciful to us “He used the popular hashtag “Karachi” in his writing.

Behind the Saddar police station, on Shahrah-e-Faisal, lies a very protected enclave known as the KPO. Hundreds of officers and their families can stay in the complex’s many administrative and residential structures.

The attack began between 7:00 and 7:30 PM, when the perpetrators drove up to the Saddar Police Lines, which are located behind the KPO. They opened fire and hid in the confusion as they first fired at a neighbouring mosque.
