Lahore – The Ameer of Jamat-ud-Dawah Pakistan, Professor Hafiz Muhammad Saeed, Hafiz Abdur Rehman Makki and Maualana Ameer Hamza have expressed their deepest sympathies over the tragic death of 17 children who were victims of the gas cylinder explosion inside their school van.
They condoled and expressed their empathy with the parents of the 17 children. In their statement, they said that the use of non-standard gas containers is increasing the frequency of these disasters in which scores are losing their lives.
