Students of the University of Karachi (KU) on Friday paid respect to their Chinese professors, who were killed in a suicide attack outside the Confucius Institute earlier this week.
When a suicide bomber hit their van on Tuesday, killing four individuals, three of them were Chinese nationals. Four additional people were injured, including three Chinese nationals.
Several students gathered outside the Confucius Institute to express their support for their deceased professors, and they criticized the horrible incident that took place on Tuesday.
The Karachi University students yelled slogans in support of their Chinese professors while holding the flags of Pakistan and China in their hands and raising placards in front of the institution.
It was the students’ desire that the ones slain in the attack were in Pakistan to promote education and that the criminals be brought to justice as quickly as possible.
Dr Muhammad Nasir, Director of the Confucius Institute, indicated that, while it will take some time for the situation to return to normal, the institute would not be shuttered during this time period.
“The Chinese are tremendously brave and determined, and they will not give up,” he added of the people.
Following the incident, Dr. Muhammad Zubair, the university’s security adviser, stated that the university’s security, including that of the Confucius Institute, has increased up to the incident.
Dr. Zubair stated that the university has 52 cameras, some of which are non-operational. “I took over the reins a few days ago, and I’m planning to get all of the cameras repaired.”
