The top boss of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres, has severely denounced the suicide bombing at a mosque in Peshawar on Monday. The massacre resulted in the loss of 83 lives and left numerous others wounded. Guterres referred to the strike as “notoriously abhorrent” due to the fact that it happened in a holy place, where individuals should feel secure.

The UN mouthpiece, Stephane Dujarric, delivered a declaration at the noon briefing in New York. The declaration emphasized that the liberty to practice one’s faith, including the right to worship peacefully and securely, is an inalienable human right. Guterres conveyed his sympathy to the bereaved families and wished for the swift recovery of the injured.

The declaration also underlined the solidarity of the United Nations with the government and citizens of Pakistan as they strive to fight terrorism and extremism.

When probed about the rising number of attacks across Pakistan, for which Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has taken responsibility, Dujarric stressed that every governing body has a duty to prevent their territory from being used for terrorist activities.
