RIP Khudi Ali: Pakistan’s young rights activist against Shia Genocide killed by Deobandi militants

It’s with utmost pain and sorrow that we announce that LUBP’s team member and friend Irfan Khudi Ali from Quetta was among at least 80 Shia (including some Sunni) Muslims killed by Deobandi militants of the Sipah Sahaba (ASWJ) on 10 January 2013 in mutliple attacks on Quetta’s Alamdar Road.

Irfan was one of the prominent voices in Pakistan’s social media who was always active to highlight the plight of Pakistani Shias including Quetta’s Shia Hazara and non-Shia Hazara Muslims. He was equally active on other causes of human rights and was liked by all faith and ethnic groups.

Irfan who was currently trying to make arrangements for a poor kid’s medical treatment abroad. He also sent us a medical certificate and some other details to organize help for those poor Shia families who have lost their only bread-winner at the hands of Takfiri Deobandi militants in recent years.

The most apt tribute to Irfan is to support his mission, i.e., to highlight and put a stop to Shia genocide and Sunni Sufi genocide taking place at the hands of Deobandi militants under the watchful nod of certain pro-Takfiri elements in the establishment, Chief Justice Iftikhar Chauhdry and an incompetent government of Asif Zardari.

Those who are paying vague tribute to Irfan without explicitly mentioning and supporting his clear stance on Shia genocide by Pakistan army-sponsored Jihadist Deobandi mercenaries are insulting his memory.

FC role cant be ignored in ongoing #Hazaras genocide in #Quetta becz it doesn’t stop suspected person or vehicles enter in city Hazara areas

To understand why Deobandi militants killed Irfan and other Shia Muslims in Pakistan, refer to this fatwa by Deobandi Muslims most eminent seminary Darul Uloom Deoband which declares Shia Muslims as infidel (Kafir) and apostate (Murtid), hence worthy to be killed (wajib-ul-qatl). It is the violent implementation of such fatwas by the Takfiri Deobandi militants in Pakistan which has enabled murder of more than 21,000 Shia Muslims in Pakistan in the last few decades.

دارالعلوم دیوبند کا انتہائی اہم فتویٰ۔ جو لوگ اپنے آپ کو دارالعلوم دیوبندکا صحیح پیروکار سمجھتے ہیں اور اپنے آپ کو دیوبند کا ترجمان سمجھتے ہیں ان کے لیے یہ فتویٰ انتہائی غور طلب ہے۔

”1۔۔۔شیعہ اثنا عشری،یہودی،عیسائی،ہندو،سکھ کے درجہ میں نہیں بلکہ قادیانی کے درجہ میں ہیں، یعنی جس طرح قادیانی کافر ومرتد ہیں اسی طرح شیعہ اثنا عشری بھی کافر ومرتد ہیں۔ یاد رہے کہ پاکستان کی آبادی میں قل ٣ فیصد شیعہ ہیں اور ان 3 فیصد شیعہ میں بھی 90 فیصد اثنا عشری ہیں، بقیہ امامیہ، آغا خانی اور بلتی شیعے ہیں.
2۔۔۔حتی الامکان ہم مسلمانوں کو ان کے ساتھ سماجی ومعاشرتی اور مذہبی تعلقات رکھنے سے احتیاط کرنی چاہیے۔ان کی تجہیز وتکفین میں شرکت کرنا درست نہیں۔مساجد میں ان کے لیے چندہ وغیرہ لینا بھی درست نہیں،انکا ذبیحہ بھی درست نہیں۔آج کل اہل کتاب بھی دہریہ ہوتے ہیں اس لیے ان کے ذبیحے سے بھی احتیاط برتی جائے۔”

Question (summary): In your previous fatwas, you have described Shias as infidels (Kafir), apostate (Murtid) and unbeliever (Zindeeq). How do you categorize them as compared to Jews, Christians, Hindus, Sikhs, Qadianis etc? Are we allowed to haver social interaction with Shias?

Answer (Fatwa): “Followers of Shia Isna Ashari sect are not to be ranked amongst (infidel such as) Jews, Christians, Hindus and Sikhs (i.e. Shias are worse than infidels). Instead Shias should be ranked along with Qadianis (Ahmadis), i.e., Shias too, like Qadianis, are infidels (Kafir) and apostate (Murtid). We Muslims must not have any social or religious relations, must not participate in their burial, must not get donations from them for mosques, must not eat the meat slaughtered by them” – Fatwa No. 1535 issued on September 10, 2009 by Darul Uloom, Deoband (Deobandi Muslims most eminent seminary in the world).

  • I would like to share these few lines from Federico Garcia Lorca’s`LAMENT FOR IGNACIO SANCHEZ MEJIAS’, the latter having been a noted bull-fighter who was taken in his prime.I hope some at least will find a channel of respite in it, as I did many years ago, for days such as this seem to challenge one’s faith.
    The refrain in Spanish runs:`Que no quiero verla!’
    (I do not want to see it!)

    Ignacio mounts the steps
    with all his death on his back.
    He looked for the dawn
    and the dawn was not there.
    He seeks his confident profile,
    the dream disorients it.
    He sought his beautiful body
    and found his opened blood.
    Don’t say that I should see it!
    I don’t want to feel the jet
    grow weaker all the time,
    that jet of blood which lights
    the terraces, which spills
    on corduroy and leather
    of a thirsty crowd.
    Who calls me to appear!
    Don’t say that I should see it!

  • by the way, I am Shiia. Pakistan Army has NOTHING to do with these enemies of Islam. Stop spreading mis-information in order to defame our National Army! Get a life!

    devote this section to celebrating his life and calling for measures to end these takfiri terrorism animals. Stop maligning the army, that doesnt solve anything and in fact is just plain retarded.

  • Oh really brother Ali … Why you pretend to be so naive. If these multitude of sipahs and lashkar are not being harbored by army (ISI),m who is nurturing them, Oh yeah, israel and india i forgot. Israelis and indians are also Deobandi/Wahabi. I also have a military background (parents) but that does not change the fact that our military is responsible for the lives of innocent shias being taken every day, both passively and actively,.

  • Shia leaders present their demands as sit-in continues
    After a day of tragedy in Quetta in which over 100 Shias were killed and more than 200 wounded, Shias have staged a sit-in protest for indefinite period. A big number of women and children are also participating in it. The protest was called after local Shia leaders decided not to bury the dead unless their demands are met.
    Their demands are:
    Take concrete action against LEJ-ASWJ in Balochistan
    Carry out targeted operation against LEJ-ASWJ
    Arrest all the culprits and punish
    Stop allowing publication of threats to Shia community by LeJ-SSP in local newspapers
    Financially compensate over 1000 Shia victims, and provide free medical facilities to the wounded
    Provide jobs to every victim who lost their guardians
    Provide protection to the Shia businessmen, transporters, vendors, officers, school, college and university students
    Set up security check posts of police in areas where Shias have been regularly targeted
    Set up permanent check posts in and around Alamdar Road and Hazara Town
    Provision of scanners, training the volunteers
    Permission of volunteers
    End of apartheid in university and other institutions against the Shia Hazaras, and all Shias
    Resettle the Shia Hazara families who were evicted from Khuzdar and Machh and protect them
    Coverage in media

  • AAhmed – yes, REALLY! The army ran de-radicalization centers in Swat/Dir and other insurgency affected areas. What did Zardari’s government do?

    Obviously I am furious as you are about the targeted and indiscriminate killing of Shiias. We’ve all seen these takfiri terrorists and their work. The funding of theirs is coming from Saudi Arabia and the Gulf. I’m afraid the proxy war in Syria is taking on a sectarian twist. Even secular Turkey is seeing tensions between Sunnis and Allawis in some areas. We as Muslims must totally THRASH this concept of Sunni and Shiia. We are humans, Pakistanis FIRST. These terrorists are doing the work of the devil himself. Onus is on the masses to confront and destroy these enemies (within and outside – whoever funding and supporting these groups)

  • ISI and Army have nothing to do with these gruesome and cold-blooded killings/bombings. There are many threats, they have foiled many bomb attempts on Shiia majalis. But when facing so many threats they are also prone to failure. Providing security in these cities is the job of the POLICE. But they are busy getting appointed based on political connections and not competence. And if Army is called to Quetta, then the liberals cry and claim they are imposing martial law on the province and the people. Make up your minds! We need police, and the judiciary needs to be totally over-hauled.
