Sign of the Times - Terror Attack in Daata Darbar, Lahore's Sufi Shrine

Requiem for the dead.

[Text and pictures by Mayank Austen Soofi]

On the night of July 1, 2010, three suicide bombers struck in quick succession at the Sufi shrine of Daata Darbar in Lahore, Pakistan. 35 people died, 175 were injured. I consider the courtyard of this dargah as his home. I have spent a night there. May the loved ones of the dead find comfort in Daata Saheb's love.

Please Save Pakistan from these kind of activities Last day what happened this is quite unfair as muslim and i sure the people who did this they are not muslims

Actually, 43 people are said to have died with as many as 200 injured.

This is the logical outcome of Bush's crusade, "the war on terror". Now everyone is saying, "you are either with us or against us". The Big Fish, the terrorist state USA, has butchered millions of people who chose not to be 'with it'.

On the other hand, little fish such as "private terrorists", swagger about with chests thrust out each time they kill dozens. We are little more than sacrificial lambs who can be slaughtered mercilessly by these sub-human creatures for failing to be "with them"!

@Fatima, get a grip. Those people were Muslims the wahabi variety.
The problem is not with others creating problems for you but with your religion.
Was it an American, a Hindu or a Jew who broke the mausoleum of your prophet in Saudi Arabia or a Muslim. Was it the Americans who killed the Kurds in Turkey or Muslim Turks.
All you people can do is blame others, take a good look at yourself. Islamo Nazis
