Malalai Joya met with the mourning family of 8-year-old Saima and 27-year-old Sadiq who died in the suicide attack of June 22, 2015 in front of the Parliament.

Saima’s parents and Sadiq’s wife shared their pain of being the victims of such attacks by murderous terrorists where only the poor people are targeted; the government officials and members of Parliament travel in bullet proof cars and are safe, and their families live abroad so they do not suffer from these attacks.

The family claimed that most of the members of the Parliament are themselves involved in these crimes because as we always see, not one powerful person is harmed in these attacks and only the poor people are its victims.

Sadiq’s wife said that she did not just lose her husband, but also lost the only breadwinner of her home. Till now, not a single member of the Parliament has come to her house to at least offer his or her condolences.
