Paris attacks similar to Pakistan attacks. Opinion

I STRONGLY condemn the barbaric attacks on innocents of Paris, which indeed is an attack on entire humanity.

This atrocity reminded me of the attacks on two mosques of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community in Lahore, Pakistan five years ago. The mosques were attacked at the same time of Friday Prayer, when both mosques had around 2000 people inside.

Attackers shot whosoever they could for hours and ended their attack with suicide blasts.

Correlating the sadness of tragedy, the Ahmadiyya Muslim community offers its deepest condolences to the people of France and government. The innocent victims of these barbaric attacks and their families are in our thoughts and prayers.

Mirza Masroor Ahmad, the 5th Khalifa of the Promised Messiah, has mentioned many preventive measures in his speeches and interviews on international forums and media. We should take all measures to avoid such tragic loss in future.
