Pak lawyers boycott courts to protest Rawalpindi mosque blast
Lahore: Lawyers across Pakistan’s Punjab
province today boycotted courts to protest the terrorist
attack on a mosque in Rawalpindi that killed 40 people,
including 17 children and five senior serving army officers.
The protest was organised by the Punjab Bar Council to
protest the killing of innocent people in yesterday’s attack.
Members of the Lahore High Court Bar Association and
the Lahore District Bar Association boycotted courts and
lawyers did not appear in court to express solidarity with
families affected by the attack.

attack and demanded that the government should eliminate
terrorists from Pakistan.
The lawyers also prayed for the peace of the dead and
courage for the bereaved families.
