In his recent episode of Dunya @ 8 (on 22 Aug 2012), Mohammad Malick presented a very balanced and objective programme on Shia genocide taking place in Pakistan at the hands of the Taliban and Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (also operating as Sipa-e-Sahaba and Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat).
While the panel comprised two deeply anti-Shia clerics (radical Deobandi cleric Ludhianvi of SSP-ASWJ, and Salafi cleric Ibtisam Elahi Zahir of Jamiat Ahle Hadith) and a Hazara ethnic leader Abdul Khaliq Hazara (notorious for misrepresenting Shia genocide in ethnic terms), both Muhammad Malick and journalist Amir Mateen presented an objective and realistic analysis of the context and nature of Shia genocide in Pakistan.
In particular, they highlighted the following:
1. Complicity of Pakistani security agencies with LeJ-SSP terrorists;
2. Hypocrisy of Deobandi-Wahhabi clerics and their reluctance to issue fatwa against killers of Shias;
3. The wide scale of Shia genocide taking place in all areas of Pakistan, from Gilgit to Quetta and from Karachi to Parachinar, against a community comprising at least 20 million people.
In short, Mr. Malick’s coverage of Shia genocide will put many so called liberals to shame who haven’t written a single column or hosted a single TV programme on this topic (barring an one off tweet or comment).
