LAHORE: The Lahore Chamber of Commerce & Industry (LCCI) condemned terrorist attacks in Lahore Police Lines in severest possible words and urged all the Parliamentary parties to take unified stand to weed out the menace of terrorism. Loss of precious innocent lives is not bearable and tolerable at all.
In a statement issued here, the LCCI President Ijaz A. Mumtaz, Senior Vice President Mian Nauman Kabir, Vice President Syed Mahmood Ghaznavi and Executive Committee Members termed the terrorist attacks on innocent students a cowardly act and an ugly attempt to destabilize country aimed at creating an impression of unsafe place in the eyes of international community.
The LCCI office-bearers urged the government to cope with law and order related incidents with iron hands that have jolted the very basis of the country. They said that any further delay in taking a strong stand against terrorists would cause undue damage to the country. Security Forces and government were already putting in their best efforts to weed out the menace of terrorism but all political parties should also join hands and play their role in this regard.
