He also tweeted saying that the opposition reacts only when security forces are involved in an incident. "If security forces are found responsible for any bloodshed and deaths, opposition raises its voice and creates a ruckus in the House. But today, when militants have killed a young boy, there is silence. No one is protesting against it," Omar said.
