No doubt the genocide of Shia community in Pakistan is an alarming situation for all Pakistanis who are patriotic, who respect religions or believe in Inter-faith Harmony and for those Pakistanis who always demanded and wished a prosperous and peaceful Pakistan. But, the bitter fact we have to accept is that not only the Shias but all communities whether religions, ethnic or social are facing the same extremism in Pakistan
Pakistanis an Islamic Country but it doesn’t means that the Muslims have the ownership of this country. Many other religions are residing here who are nationals and non-nationals. I personally know many foreigners who love Pakistan more than aPakistanyou can say. But the recent scenario doesn’t target just a single or two or three communities but all the residents/Nationals of this country.
Being a liberal Pakistani I respect all the sects of Islam and all the religions. I belong to Fiqa-e-Jafaria/ Ahl-e-Tashi sect from my mother side and tilted towards my mother’s family because I personally respect the martyrs of Islam from Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.W) family and by representing the shia community inPakistanphysically I lead the Alam of shia rallies, attended and been part of Azadaris (religious activities) of Shia community. I have also been part of security teams of Shia Jaloos (rallies) in Pakistan and this made us lose many family members including my real cousins and uncles.
Meanwhile I also represented and raised voice for Shia Community on social networking websites including Facebook and twitter. By representing shia community I feel myself more strong and powerful because I am fighting for the rights, those rights which all the nationals o f Pakistan deserved. The voices online that are supporting the minorities of Pakistan including shias are highly appreciated at all platforms and their struggle for their communities deserves their rights. Unfortunately we are not going in the same way to raise our voice for our brothers and sisters who have been brutally killed.
The online movement of Shia community started a year back but it got hype after six or seven months since it was started. One should agree or not but what some elements are doing on social media by diverting the perspective of these killing to another side is taking us towards anarchy. The recently banned shia killings website was doing a good job by highlighting our voice but sharing the video of brutal killings of shia brothers and blaming government for this is a dangerous propaganda which will create dangerous situation inPakistan.
Similarly the dirty propaganda against democratically elected government who themselves are the victim of the extremist mindset is not showing the voice of shias but the extremist mindset who always are in favor to see destabilized, disastrous, anarchist situation in Pakistan. One must not forget that the Presdent Asif Ali Zardari is a widower of Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto who lost her life while fighting the same extremist mind I am talking about. Many PPP leaders including Shaheed Salman Taseer and Shaheed Shahbaz Bhatti have been martyred by the same extremist mullahs.
Saying an elected President a Yazeed is not a shia can say but a spokesperson of extremists because we all know President himself is a shia and respect the shia community more than any other. Visualizing brutal killings on a website will not get the justice but will make more troubles for the Government, for the Country and for the nationals of this country. Misguiding the shia activists, representatives and followers by showing someone responsible who is also a victim will take us nowhere. I am ashamed on those who started this blog and are my colleagues to be a party on this dirty and shameful propaganda. This propaganda is mostly done by the pen ids or commonly known as fake ids that are attacking President, Prime Minister’s advisor on Interior Affairs and other government representatives on public forum and blaming them for the reason which they aren’t responsible for.
They the pen names have no problems because they’ve never been here in any rally, jaloos, azadari, matamdari or nohakhuwani in Pakistan but enjoying a good life sitting abroad. Why creating havoc in our country which is already is in a big problem. Government, Policemen, Army soldiers, Rangers, innocent nationals ofPakistaneveryone is surviving here because of extremist mindset. There is no other party involved in these killings but a third party which we all know are the banned outfits i.e Jamaat-ud-Dawah, Sipah Sihaba Pakistan, Lashkar-e-Tayba, Lakshar-e-Jhangvi, Jaish Muhammad, Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan, Alqaeda and other relevant animals who have an agenda to destroy this Nation which our ancestors have got through struggles of years.
I will conclude with a request to all those who are real Pakistanis whether from any community, Please don’t be a party of this bloody propaganda. I also request PTA, Law Enforcement agencies, Peace lovers, civil society and the media to stop spreading this viral of fake bloody revolution. Stop the pen names that are using it for wrong doings, stop the pen names for creating anarchy, stop the pen names for misguiding people. Having pen name is not a sin or crime but misusing it is a real crime and misusing for reasoning mass killings, chaos, and anarchy will not be tolerated at any cost. Those who brutally killed shias are the TALIBANS and their companions but those who are visualizing those videos for negative means are equally responsible.
I am against enemies ofPakistanwho are extremists and are banned by the government. I and the political party which I represent is victim of the extremist mullah mindset but we fought, we are fighting and we will fight against these elements. Stop Killing Innocents!
