It was easier to maintain (shameless) ‘neutrality’ and remain silent on the issue of persecution of Shia in Pakistan in the past when media would completely blackout any news of killing of Shia; pushing it under the carpet in the name of ‘maintaining order’. Gone are those days and some sectarian fascist bloggers, in addition to some Shia social media initiatives, have highlighted the issue effectively. Considering the fact that it has become increasingly difficult over time to remain silent on the issue and not get labels like ‘ShiaPhobe’, I would like to present some helpful tips to gracefully ignore Shia Genocide. I hope these will serve you well to gracefully ignore Shia Genocide.
So, here are the best ways or excuses you can use to maintain your (criminal) silence on Shia Genocide and still keep your head high:
Enjoy a selection of 50 best excuses available to you. Make sure you pick the right one. Cramming them is a good idea to use as per context quickly.1. Oh, Shia killing is bad… but they abuse Sahaba.
2. Find something else to talk about: Gaza, Syria, aalo ki qeemat, UPS ki battery, garmi ki shiddat, CNG ki qitarain.
3. Shia are not that innocent. They kill too. Bad Sunni and Bad Shia are killing each other, there is no genocide. Let them kill.
4. Shias have killed millions of Sunnis in Iran, routinely slaughter Sunni children.
5. Well, they do strange things like cutting themselves and self harming. How is that better than Taliban?
7. They are not true Muslims. Shia are traitors, Irani agents.
8. Altogether reject the existence of Shia in Pakistan. There are 97% Sunni in Pakistan. (ASWJ story).
9. Oh, this is a very sensitive topic to discuss. Let’s not go there.
10. Well, everybody is unsafe in Pakistan. It’s not Shia specific.
11. What Shia Sunni? Why can’t we be just Muslim. Why prefixes? Why create division. We are one Ummah.
12. No Muslim can ever attack a mosque or imam bargah.13. Find something else (political) to talk about. Remember, Gaza is most fashionable, followed by Syria.

20. But they were party to the constitutional amendments which declared Ahmedis non-Muslims.
21. Everyone is getting killed in Pakistan not just Shia.Kya Shia Shia laga rakhi hay, yahan sab mar rahay hain. Suicide bombing, dehshat gardi main sab kartay hain.

For the complete collection, below is the archive of all tweets on the hash tag #HowNotToTalkAboutShiaGenocide. (Archived on 27th November 2012 at 5 Pm GMT)
As you are aware (but will pretend you don’t) that after an organised intimidation campaign against the Shia this year (see details), the Takfiri Deobandi terrorists of Sipah Sahaba (ASWJ), Lashkar-e-Taiba and Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan have killed 55 Shia and injured more than 324 in 51 incidents in the first 10 days of Muharram (see details). Considering these unavoidable numbers, it is important that you consider the tips above to ignore ShiaGenocide in Pakistan. The Shia fascists don’t take much time to pick on the usual old techniques (see details) and will expose you if you do. Do some homework… Good Luck!
