Central President of the Awami National Party, Asfandyar Wali Khan and
President ANP Pakhtunkhwa Afrasiab Khatak Tuesday have flayed the suicide attack
on the press club and said that such coward acts by the anti-state elements
could not stop journalists from bringing reality and truth before the nation.

They said that the terrorists are now on the run and are doing cowards
acts because of seeing their fate. They are neither followers of any religion
nor any other faith.

Both the leaders reaffirmed that the resolve of the media, security
agencies and the people which they made for the elimination of terrorism cannot
be weaken through such coward acts of terrorism. They vowed to support and
encourage journalists as the nation was struggling against the menace of
militancy and terrorism in the country. They expressed sympathies with the
journalists and prayed for the departed souls who embraced martyrdom in the
suicide blast.
