On Saturday (June 15), the Residency in Balochistan where Pakistan’s founder Mohammed Ali Jinnah spent his last days was badly damaged in a bomb and grenade attack, reports Pakistan’s News International.

Jinnah said in his inauguration speech in 1947: “You are free; free to go to your temples, you are free to go to your mosques or to any other places of worship in this state of Pakistan. You may belong to any religion or caste or creed – that has nothing to do with the business of the state.”

While the attackers remain unidentified, commentators are worried by the apparent symbolic nature of this attack on Pakistan’s founder’s principles.
