Member of Pakistan National Assembly Asiya Nasir has strongly condemned the incident of Munich shooting. “May God comfort the families of victims,” she prayed. In a suspected terror bid, a gunman opened fire in a shopping mall and killed at least 9, later shot himself dead on Friday, July 22, evening. Gunman’s dead body was located nearby bearing self-inflicted wounds. Reportedly 10 people were injured in the shooting spree.
Followed by the attack, MNA Asiya Nasir who hails from JUI-F expressed deep sorrow over the loss of lives and offered condolences to the families of the victims, “We strongly condemn the brutal shooting attacks in Munich, Germany.” She further stated: “We stand in solidarity with our German friends to eliminate all forms of terrorism.”
While the motives of the attacker remain unclear, German police are engaged in a huge anti-terror manhunt in Munich. The gunman has been identified as an 18-year-old with German and Iranian nationalities holder. He had been reportedly living in Germany for at least past two years. Police spokesman Marcus da Gloria Martins told the media, “We are categorizing this as a terror attack only in our response of freeing up the largest possible force to handle the situation.”
Chancellor Angela Merkel’s chief of staff, Peter Altmaier, stated that the motive of the attack is still uncertain, “We cannot rule out that it is linked to terrorism but we can’t confirm it either, but we are also investigating in this direction.”
