The Republican frontrunner who hit headlines for spewing anti-Muslim rhetoric during his presidential campaign, did not specifically condemn the attack that took place on Sunday at Gulshan-i-Iqbal park.
Condemnations poured in from local as well as global leaders, as the US, British, Indian and Turkish premiers, UN chief, Pope Francis, Nobel laureate Malala and others condemned the attack claimed by Jamaatul Ahrar, a splinter group of the Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP).
The park was overcrowded as Christians were celebrating Easter with funfair in the premises when the blast took place.
Trump who announced his presidential candidacy in June last year, drew flaks after he insulted a war hero, Latinos, a disabled reporter, and a popular Fox News anchor. He also suggested to put a blanket ban on entry of Muslims in US.
Another radical Islamic attack, this time in Pakistan, targeting Christian women & children. At least 67 dead,400 injured. I alone can solve
