"This attempt is highly mischievous and condemnable,” the Foreign Office said, adding that Pakistan has strongly condemned the dastardly terrorist attack on the Gurdawara, in which so many precious lives were lost. Places of worship are sacrosanct and their sanctity must be respected at all times. The perpetrators of this heinous crime must be brought to justice,”" it said.
