ISLAMABAD: President Asif Ali Zardari yesterday condemned the attack on the shrine of Sayyeda Hazrat Zainab Bibi in Damascus as the “most hurtful and despicable” and said only lowest and the meanest could perpetrate this act.

The presidential spokes-person quoted the President as saying that desecrating the holy shrine and places of worship not only hurt the sentiments of the Muslims in Pakistan and the world over but also threatened to widen the sectarian divide.

The President said it was incumbent upon all parties in the conflict in Syria to ensure that the sanctity of holy shrines and places of worship was maintained and these were not desecrated.
