According to details, the blast occurred when “dhamaal” was taking place in the shrine.

Edhi Foundation in charge, Lasbella Hakeem Lassi, while confirming the death toll, told Geo News that more than 100 people were also injured.

He said the injured were being shifted to a hospital for medical treatment.

He said that more than 10 ambulances of Edhi foundation have reached the blast site and rescue efforts were underway, Geo News reported.

Lassi said that more than 500 people were in the shrine at the time of dhamaal.

Emergency services were facing problems in reaching the shrine due to its remote location and poor communication infrastructure. The shrine is also located in hilly terrain.

No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack, Dawn News reported.

“People who are critically injured in the blast will be transported to Karachi,” said Balochistan Home Minister Mir Sarfaraz Ahmed Bugti.

Since no major hospital is located near the shrine, the injured are to be shifted to Karachi for further treatment. Many injured are being shifted in private vehicles.

The shrine is frequented by a large number of devotees on Friday, and is visited by people from across the country. Iranian nationals also frequent the shrine.

Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah has expressed his grief over the killing of innocents and condemned the blast.

In October, heavily-armed militants wearing suicide vests stormed a police academy in Quetta, killing at least 61 people and wounding at least 117.

The attack was carried out by Al-Alimi faction of the Lashkar-i-Jhangvi (LJ) militant group.

In August, a suicide bomber targeted the emergency services ward at Quetta’s Civil Hospital killing at least 70 people and leaving scores injured, majority of those killed were lawyers.

  1. Very sad news. The attacker was hardly 14 years old. Muslims are killing muslims all over the world. Jinnah wanted to make Pakistan as secular nation. However, his colleagues insisted him to make islamic country. Now you see what is a condition of this Islamic country. This is result of radical islamic teachings. May god bring muslims on true path of hinduism.

    • PEOPLE DIE ALL OVER WORLD FOR DIFFERENT REASONS .

      JUST TAKE ACCOUNT OF HOW MANY UN NATURAL DEATHS OCCURS IN INDIA ,WHO WILL BE HORRIFIED ..
      FAKE DRUGS, ADULTERTAED FOOD,FAKE DOCTORS,SUICIDES .ETC ETEC ETEC ..
      ONLY REASONS ARE DIFFERENT

      ALWAYS THINK UNCOMPASSIONATELY

      INIDAN KILLS SILENTLY ,IN MUSLIM WORLD THEY USE BOMBS …BEACUSE IF YOU FIND DOCTORS IN MUSLIM COUNTRY ,NEXT DAY HE WILL BE HANGED ,BUT IN INDIA THEY WILL ROAM FREE…
      IF YOU GO TO BASICS OF VEDAS THAT WILLGIVE YOU RIGHT THINKING.
      OVER THE YEARS FAKE PUNDITS,MOULVIS,PIESTS HAVE DISTORTED OR MISUNDERSTOOD RELIGION.
      EVEN COMMON PEOPLE USE MANIPULATED THOUGHTS IF IT BENEFITS THEM AND PAY PRICE FOR IT LATER…

    • The universe certainly would have been a better place if Hindus believe in ONE ALMIGHTY ALLAH & never in Seven incarnation & seven circle in wedding.
      Hindus are tied with Janagono mono & believe of Elephant & monkey worship an open way to Hell & self destruction.

      • We can not accept Islam’s definition of one god because it is very immature & cannot answer following questions:
        1) What happens when a human being dies? Do you consider human being as only material body?
        2) Why every human being takes birth with different fate? I mean, why somebody is rich, somebody is poor, somebody is good looking & somebody is bad looking?
        3) You say after death, Allah gives justice to every human being whether he will go to heaven or hell. How allah gives justice if few months baby is died?
        If you could answer above questions satisfactorily then we will look into your one god theory.. otherwise forget about it.
        We believe in one God theory however it is more comprehensive & believes that god is everywhere.

    • MR. SECULAR HINDU.

      U have total misconception about ISLAM. There is difference between ISLAM and Muslims.

      ISLAM has given to Mankind from GOD ALLAH/ BRAMMA / EESWARAN. ONLY ISLAM has given to all MANKIND.

      However, SATANS in the name of ISLAM, even AMERICANS, ISRAELI, RSS all are doing TERRORISM in the name of ISLAM, including some MUSLIMS who do for money. ISLAM has no CONNECTION with DEVILS.

      if you are a REAL HONEST MAN ON THE EARTH, study ISLAM without EVIL in heart, then u will become TRUE MUSLIM and 100% peaceful MAN.

      ALL THE BEST.

    • MR SECULAR HINDU.

      U wrote that true path of HINDUISM. Am sorry my friend, HINDUISM is totally WRONG AND FALSE PATH, in fact its way of worshiping ONLY DUMMY GODS, and man made.

      The word HINDUISM NEVER EXIST IN ANY RELIGIOUS BOOKS OF HINDUS, so hinduism BECOMES FALSE.

      Before you write, U READ VEDAS, UPANISHAD, PROPERLY what they say about ONENESS OF GOD, ALLAH THE EXALTED.

      ALL THE BEST

    • MR. SECULAR HINDU.

      Today i provide you OPEN CHALLENGE. if you provide one SINGLE teachings of ISLAM is against HUMANITY, then i will come to HINDUISM.

      if you FAIL, will u REVERT to ISLAM which will take you to PARADISE from horrific HELL.
