Islamabad, July 2 (IANS) The blasts at Lahore's Sufi shrine that killed 38 people show that terrorists have no respect for any religion and such acts will not deter us to fight them, Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari said Friday.

Such terror acts cannot dent the government's resolve to fight the menace of terrorism and militancy to the end, Zardari said.

A double suicide bombings inside the Hazrat Data Ganj Bakhsh shrine (Data Darbar) Thursday night killed at least 38 people and injured 175.
