HRCP calls for appropriate response to children’s massacre

LAHORE, Dec 18 (INP): A prompt and thorough probe into the children’s massacre in Peshawar should name all actors who facilitated the terrorists, directly or indirectly, to kill the nation’s future generation, the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP) said on Thursday.

The Commission in a statement urged the government that response to the horrific blood-letting in Peshawar must not be merely reactive or emotional but should be well thought out.

“HRCP demands that details of all aspects of the incident that culminated in the tragic targeting of children in Peshawar must be shared with the people. This is far too catastrophic a tragedy for the information to be made available only through the news media.

“The people demand and desperately hope that a prompt and thorough probe into this worst terrorist attack to befall the nation would name all actors who facilitated the terrorists, directly or indirectly, to kill the nation’s future generation. It should also identify the reasons for the intelligence apparatus failure to forestall the massacre. The investigation should look at all links in the support chain for the terrorists, not merely those in Afghanistan.
