Investigate Deadly Bombing of Religious Seminary

Target: Mohammad Ali Gandapur, Police Chief of Peshawar, Pakistan

Goal: Thoroughly investigate bombing of religious site that killed seven people.

A bomb was recently detonated at a religious seminary in Peshawar, Pakistan. The blast killed at least seven people and wounded more than 80. The city, which is near the border with Afghanistan, has long been fraught with both militant and sectarian violence. However, no immediate claim of responsibility has been made for the bomb in Peshawar. A police officer who asked for anonymity, as he is not authorized to speak to the media, said, “Unknown people planted explosives in a plastic bag.” Police Chief Mohammad Ali Gandapur said that the bomb contained up to 13 pounds of explosives.

Some past attacks have been claimed by the Pakistani Taliban. However, the group released a statement after the seminary bombing saying that they condemned the blast and denied their involvement. Prime Minister Imran Khan tweeted, “I want to assure my nation we will ensure the terrorists responsible for this cowardly barbaric attack are brought to justice ASAP.”

All of the fatalities of the bombing are said to be adults. Children are among the 82 wounded, of which five are in critical condition. Sign this petition to urge the police force of Peshawar to thoroughly investigate the bombing and seek justice for those injured and lost in this act of senseless violence.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Police Chief Gandapur,

The bombing of the religious seminary in Peshawar was a senseless act of violence that resulted in the death of seven innocent people and has left over eighty others wounded. Prime Minister Khan called the attack “cowardly” and attributed the violence to “terrorists.” The bombers are still unknown and at large. It is necessary that your police force do a complete and thorough investigation of the bombing in order to apprehend those responsible.

I urge you to commit to a full investigation of this bombing that killed seven people.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
