Islamabad: Chief Minister of Pakistan`s Punjab province, Shahbaz Sharif, has said that the country may turn into “a failed state” if the widespread killings of innocent citizens continues.

He said that the ongoing killings of innocent citizens had brought democracy and the existing set-up into question.

Sharif said terrorism was at its peak in the country, adding that if concrete action was not taken against those responsible, the country’s foundations may begin to shake, the Dawn reports.

The Chief Minister’s statement comes after the bombing in Quetta, which claimed the lives of over 87 Shia Hazaras.
