Lahore, Dec.30 (ANI): Denouncing Monday's suicide attack on a Muharram procession, in which 40 people were killed, Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari has vowed to punish the perpetrators of the deadly attack, including the assassin of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto by waging 'jihad' against them.

"We will wage jihad against those who murdered Benazir Bhutto, those who burnt Karachi and are killing our soldiers," The Daily Times quoted Zardari, as saying.

Referring to the Karachi violence, Zardari said it was a conspiracy against the country.

"My heart weeps over the loss of life in Karachi," he said, while asking the Sindh government to take action against the culprits, planners and financiers of the terrorist attack.

Addressing a public gathering after inaugurating a bridge at Khairpur, Zardari said the federal government wants stronger governments in the provinces, which can resolve issues and problems facing the people of the region. (ANI)
