GOUVIEUX, FRANCE: Prince Karim Aga Khan, the spiritual leader of Ismaili Muslims, expressed shock and sadness on Wednesday in the wake of an attack on a bus carrying members of the Ismaili community in Karachi that left 43 people dead. “This attack represents a senseless act of violence against a peaceful community. My thoughts and prayers are with the families of those killed and wounded in the attack,” the Aga Khan said in a statement. The Aga Khan noted that Ismailis are a peaceful global community, living in harmony with other religious and ethnic groups in many countries across the world. Ismaili leaders in Pakistan are currently involved in an emergency operation trying to help the survivors of the attack, according to the statement.   More on Tribune com
