While condemning the incident they said that Karachi which is contributing more than 60 percent in the national exchequer has completely left at the mercy of militants. All security measures have completely failed. FPCCI, which has been demanding to ensure security to the people, their property and business have been given deaf ears. Such massive incidences have tarnished the image of Pakistan which is already confronted with many challenges.
