There was no final validation like names and photographs of attackers. But based on the reports of Aamaq propaganda agency of Pakistan it is claimed that the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) is holding responsibility for the bloodshed in Quetta’s Church attack. Being the reason Islamists attacked in 2015, the church is since then guarded with securities as the target seems 2% of Christian’s population.

The issue is been raised in Pakistan since long, as there seems discrimination in the religions. And Pakistan has launched many military offensives against Islamist militants. And in the same month, Quetta’s church is the second attack where the first was in an agricultural college in Peshawar city of Pakistan. ISIS killed the guard and eight students from the college.

The officials continuously claimed that they have taken terrorism under control, but still it is present putting common people lives in danger. Surely it seems there is no safe place for people.
