Gunmen in Pakistan kill two women working to eradicate polio

QUETTA, Pakistan (Reuters) - Gunmen in Pakistan shot and killed two women working on a polio eradication campaign on Thursday, the latest in a string of attacks on efforts to protect children from the crippling and sometimes deadly disease.




This is the second incident of violence in Quetta today. Earlier today, two policemen were shot dead in a targeted attack in the Zarghoon Road area.

Attacks targeting polio teams have decreased in frequency over the last few years.

No group claimed responsibility for the killings in the southwestern city of Quetta but such attacks have in the past been carried out by Islamist militants, who oppose the immunization of children as un-Islamic.

Sakina Bibi, 50, and her 20-year-old daughter, Alizah, were giving immunization drops to children when two gunmen riding on a motorcycle shot them, said police official Naseebullah Khan.

 “They died on their way to a hospital,” said Khan.

Once again human failed to save humanity. I had heard that 'Lahoris' are hospitable people but it was wrong. Lahoris failed to save their guest.

Another Mishal has brutally murdered by a mob but this time in a play ground. This time everything is OK, no news about this incident gone viral, not a single headline appeared on media, I don't know why? May be it was not such a big incident. Lets ask about the intensity of the incident to his parents for whom Dilawar was the only son. No inquiry, no investigation, no statment, no debate, Isn't that the prejudice? 
Where are all social media activists and bloggers? 
Please raise your voice?
