Karachi : 10 injured in a cracker attack at JI’s Kashmir rally

At least 10 people were injured in a cracker attack at a rally of Jamaat-e-Islami in Karachi’s Gulshan-e-Iqbal area, the Sindh health department confirmed Wednesday.

The injured have been shifted to hospital and they all are in a stable condition, a spokesperson for the provincial health department told media. The Kashmir rally was passing through the Baitul Mukarram mosque when an unidentified man threw a cracker from the opposite side of the road, an eyewitness told

JI rally was being held in connection with Youm-i-Istehsal (the day of exploitation), which is being observed today to mark one year since India revoked occupied Kashmir’s semi-autonomous status on August 5.

In a tweet, JI chief Sirajul Haq termed the bomb attack a “cowardly act”.
