Karachi [Pakistan]: The husband of the woman who blew herself up at Karachi University in Pakistan said her selfless act has left him speechless but he is proud of what she did.
On Tuesday (April 26), an explosion took place near Confucius Institute — a Chinese language teaching centre at Karachi University.
Taking to Twitter, Afghan journalist Bashir Ahmad Gwakh said Habitan Bashir Baloch, husband of female suicide bomber Shari Baloch, tweeted from an unknown location saying that he is proud of what she did.
He also informed that Shari Baloch has had two kids (8 and 5 years old). Her husband, Habitan Bashir Baloch, is a dentist and her father was a lecturer.
Gwakh also shared a snapshot of the tweet posted by Baloch’s husband. The tweet stated, “Shari Jan, your selfless act has left me speechless but I am also beaming with pride today. Mahroch and Meer Hassan will grow into very proud humans thinking what a great woman there was. You will continue to remain an important part of our lives.”
Talking about the first ‘Baloch woman to carry out a suicide attack’, Afghan journalist Gwakh informed that the Balochistan Liberation Army (BLA) said the 30-year-old joined the group two years ago and volunteered herself for a “self-sacrificing mission”.
She had a Master’s degree in Zoology and MPhil in education while teaching at a school, Gwakh said.
Earlier, Gwakh shared CCTV footage showing a burqa-clad woman, blowing herself up as the van passes through the road.
In an explosion, at least four people, including three Chinese citizens, were killed and several others were injured.
The Chinese Embassy in Pakistan condemned the blast inside the premises of a University in Karachi.
Meanwhile, in the wake of a deadly attack inside the premises of Karachi University, it has decided to remain suspended for Wednesday.
Three Chinese nationals were among the four persons killed in a car explosion inside the premises of the University of Pakistan in Karachi on Tuesday (April 26), according to media reports citing sources.
As per Geo TV, the blast took place at 1:52 pm in a van near Confucius Institute — a Chinese language teaching centre at Karachi University.
Following the blast, rescue and security agencies reached the location and cordoned off the areas, initiating rescue operations, the media outlet reported.
As per Geo TV, the deceased Chinese nationals have been identified as the director of the Confucius Institute Huang Guiping, Ding Mupeng, Chen Sai, and their Pakistani driver Khalid.
Two of the injured have been identified as Chinese national Wang Yuqing and a guard named Hamid. Meanwhile, three people are said to be in critical condition, as per sources.
As per police sources, there were seven to eight people in the van; however, the exact number of casualties is yet to be reported.
Last year, nine Chinese nationals were killed in a blast in Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
Pakistan’s Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) has claimed to have arrested two men for their alleged involvement in the blasts on a bus carrying Chinese nationals in Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in August and Lahore’s Johar Town in the last week of June 2021.
Beijing has also stepped in to probe this bus attack. The Chinese forces were allowed to investigate this matter despite the fact that the previous Imran Khan government repeatedly stated that it wouldn’t allow foreign security set up on its land. (ANI)
