Thank you to all those who have sent messages to support for Hammad and family. Hammad had left Lahore on 22 March and his family are all safe – thank God. We continue to pray for all those who have lost loved ones and those injured in the attack. Please pray for the security forces in Pakistan that they will act quickly and decisively to defeat the terrorists who appear to operate freely in Pakistan. May God’s justice and mercy rule in this nation.
