Pakistan reiterates demand for justice for victims of Samjhauta Express blasts
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Expressing solidarity with the families of the victims of Samjhauta Express, Pakistan reminds the Indian government of its responsibility to take serious and credible steps to bring the perpetrators of the Samjhauta Express blasts to justice at the earliest and without further delay.
According to a press release issued by the Foreign Office on Tuesday, victims of Samjhauta Express terrorist attack continue to await justice.
Thirteen years ago on February 18, the Delhi-Lahore Samjhauta Express train blasts resulted in the death of 68 passengers, including more than 40 Pakistani nationals.
The inordinate delay in justice for the victims of this tragedy, despite the availability of evidence, illustrates the unwillingness of the Indian government to hold the perpetrators to account for their barbaric action.
Last year’s acquittal of the self-confessed mastermind of the attack, Swami Aseemanand, and some other accused, only reconfirms the culture of impunity that the perpetrators of terrorist attacks enjoy under the RSS/BJP-led, Hindutva-driven, political dispensation in India.
