Seven have been martyred. TTP is striking again. We gave them the chance to regroup. India made sure they all get back together and we were sleeping. Until we make India pay the price this crap will keep happening. India needs to pay the price for its crimes.

Why don't we dig a 500ft deep / half a mile wide moat with LMG's pointing in Afghanistan's general direction.

At least 7 killed, 70 injured in blast at seminary in Peshawar's Dir Colony

At least seven people were killed and more than 70 injured — a majority of whom are believed to be students — in an explosion on Tuesday morning at a seminary in Peshawar's Dir Colony.

Senior Superintendent of Police (Operations) Mansoor Aman confirmed the explosion, saying that initial reports suggest an improvised explosive device (IED) was used in the explosion. "Five kgs of explosives were used in the blast."

The area has been cordoned off and police teams are collecting evidence, he added.

"The blast took place in a seminary during a Quran class. Someone took a bag inside the seminary," Waqar Azim, a senior police official, told AFP.

Mohammad Ali Gandapur, another senior police official, confirmed the details. He said two teachers were among the wounded.

Lady Reading Hospital spokesperson Mohammad Asim said that seven dead bodies and 70 injured have been brought to the facility.

He stated that the injured were being provided with immediate medical attention and the hospital's director was present at the emergency ward. He added that an emergency had also been declared at the medical facility.

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Health Minister Taimur Saleem Jhagra visited the site of the blast. Speaking to reporters, he said that the focus was on providing the injured the best possible treatment to increase their chances of recovery.

Last week, Balochistan government spokesperson Liaquat Ali Shahwani said that National Counter Terrorism Authority (Nacta) had issued a security alert for the public rallies of opposition parties in Quetta and Peshawar, saying there was “credible information” about possibility of subversive activities.

Last month, five people were killed and two others injured in a blast in the Akbarpura area of Nowshera, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

District Police Officer (DPO) Najamal Hassan said that the explosion occurred in a market situated along the Kabul River. "Some people were collecting scrap material from the stones alongside the river. Some of the scrap included explosive material which detonated when they were weighing it."

Is that what they meant when they said they will take the war to the enemy's territory? If India is responsible, Pakistan should retaliate.

Can India fight China at Ladakh?? a big No...so they resorted to what they are good at, killing young seminary children. Just as APS attacks were sponsored and financed by India through TTP which killed about 144 young children.

No other country stoops so low even in war what India does...

We lack the balls unfortunatly and on top our entire opposition is nothing more than a bunch of traitors gaging together against the state and its institution namely the army.
We cant fight an external enemy if we are weak from within. Thats what the opposition is doing.
