An Official Statement of Pakistan Pharmacist Federation for the slaughter and bloodshed of human lives in Egypt and Offer of Free Medication Supply

Assalam Alaikum

The Pakistan Pharmacist Federation condemns insane slaughter and bloodshed of human lives of those who had gathered as peaceful protesters. We urge the Pakistan and international authorities to immediately stop the military aid being supplied to Egypt. The immediate job of Egyptian military is to protect the lives of Egyptians and restore democracy and bring back Dr. Morsi to lead the democratically and legally elected government.

Thus; Violence and killing of hundreds of Egyptians by the military backed interim government is not the path to political reconciliation, rather it has derailed the whole process by killing the innocents and burning the mosque.

Pakistan Pharmacist Federation president Dr. Taha Nazir said “We condemn all violence on Egyptian soil. These politics of dividing the Egyptian society will lead the country down a dangerous road of spiraling violence and suppression of basic human rights. We offer the free medication supply to our innocent injured Muslims brothers and sisters in Egypt.”
