The 2017 Mastung suicide bombing occurred on 12 May 2017 when Islamic State suicide bomber Abu Handhala al-Khurasani rammed an explosives-laden motorcycle into the bulletproof vehicle carrying far-right JUI-F politician Abdul Ghafoor Haideri on the N-25 National Highway in Mastung, Balochistan, Pakistan, killing 28 people and injuring 40. The bombing occurred as Haideri was leaving a graduation ceremony at Jama Masjid Hammadia, and his driver and aide were killed, while many other vehicles and motorcycles (including a police car) were destroyed in the explosion. Haideri survived the attack, and the attack was condemned by several major parties, in addition to the Lashkar-e-Jhangvi militant group.
