THE peace-loving people of this country were terribly shocked and dismayed at the attack on the law-enforcing agency members by militants on Eid day at Sholakia where the largest Eid congregation takes place every year. Four people including two policemen were killed in the attack. The incident took place about a kilometre away from the main prayer ground. The law enforcers were able to arrest one person in this connection. It was on the Eid morning as the whole country was recovering from the shock of Gulshan attack that took away 28 lives.
The police are investigating into the matter and I hope they will be able to identify the masterminds behind the attack. We should be united to fight against extremism so that we are able to lead a life of peace and harmony.
