The United States Condemns the Attack in Shikarpur

The U.S. Mission in Pakistan strongly condemns the attack on innocent people today at a mosque in Shikarpur and extends our deepest sympathies and condolences to the families of the victims.  The United States stands in solidarity with the people and government of Pakistan in confronting this type of extremist violence.  The United States supports the right of every person to practice their religion without fear of intimidation, death, coercion, or any form of reprisal – this is a basic human right, both in Pakistan and throughout the world.
