polio-workerIt’s quite sad to hear the brutal attacks on anti-polio teams in Peshawar & Karachi. Attacks were probably plotted for suspending the anti-polio campaign that unfortunately worked. Most of the victims have been women. The incident seems to be a revenge of terrorists’ debacle in recent attack on Peshawar airport.

Such attacks are simply inhumane and inexcusable. It has posed a risk of lifelong disability for many children. Paralyzing children as a war tactic is shameful & we strongly condemn them.
