Combined funeral for martyred Policemen

Six policemen who laid their lives while fighting and bravely resisting the heavy assault by terrorists have been honored by their colleagues and senior police officers. A combined funeral was held for the departed souls at the city’s central police lines attended by higher-ups of the department.

The Government has paid homage to heroes of the day as President Zardai announced compensation of Rs.0.5 million for each of the victims’ families.

You have made us proud by showing courage and self-sacrifice. May your soul rest in eternal peace – Amen!

    Thumbs up for rememberring those brave souls. It’s high time we take account of incredible sacrifices made by security personnel, NGO workers, school teachers, social workers and polio vaccinators etc against this onslaught of savagery and jahalat.

    May Allah bless the lost souls. And the ones injured with shifa!

    0.5 million sounds like a lot of money.

    Shame on CNN for glorifying Chris Broad as "Hero Returns Home". What the hell did he do?!?!? During his press conference right now he doesn’t even know that the Pakistani umpire, Ahsan Raza (who the Western media is saying is the man who Chris was lying on top of during the firing and protected him from gun fire) is dead. Get your facts straight Chris! The police DID NOT vanish and leave you as sitting ducks, as you have so carelessly said in your press conference.

    My thoughts and prayers with the families as they try to sort through this ordeal.

    There seems to be conflicting reports about Ahsan Raza’s condition. Some news channels and some newspapers have reported this morning that he succumbed to his injuries, while other papers are mentioning that he is stable. I apologize if the above statement is not accurate regarding his condition—I pray that he is stable and recovers soon. Not only is he an exceptional human being but a talented athlete and umpire as well. Sir, I pray for your speedy recovery.
