PESHAWAR: Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan Sunday expressed grief and sorrow on behalf of the government and the entire nation over the deadly suicide bombings on Peshawar Church and announced a 3-day nation-wide mourning.

Talking to media men, Ch Nisar, flanked by Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pervez Khattak, assured full support to the KP Government to complement efforts in connection with the medical treatment and other help to the victims.

He said the President telephoned him and told him he wanted to visit Peshawar but he could not due to lack of security clearance. "The President will undertake the visit after a few days to visit the victims and bereaved families, pray for the deceased and injured besides expressing solidarity," he told reporters.

Strongly condemning Pakistan's one of the deadliest attacks, the Interior Minister said: "No Pakistani has any words to condemn such an inhuman act".

He said he wonders who these people are, who call themselves brave and yet go ahead and kill women and innocent children. "What religion, society or law could see such acts as legitimate," he asked.

He said only anti-Islam forces could execute such heinous acts of terrorism.

Nisar lauded the patience exhibited by the Christian community following what is believed to be the deadliest attack on them in Pakistan.
