ISLAMABAD, Jun 12 (APP): Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif
Sunday expressed his sadness over the gruesome act of terrorism in
Orlando city of Florida state, USA.

“As head of government and representative of the people of Pakistan, I am deeply saddened by the gruesome act of terrorism in Orlando, Florida. No innocent man, woman or child should ever feel afraid of being shot or killed for being who they are in a progressive and democratic society,” the Prime Minister said in a statement.

He said this was against every principle of pluralism, tolerance and humanity that we have been striving for. This does not represent the will of a vast majority of Muslims, he added.

“It is just another representation of a cancer of radicalization – one that we promise to fight every day of our lives,” the Prime Minister remarked.

He prayed for peace of the departed souls, and may the families receive justice for an inexcusable act of inhumanity.
