Increasing acceptance and currency of LUBP’s discourse on Shia Genocide – by Ali Abbas Taj

83

I wish to congratulate those that have been fighting the good fight for a truthful discourse on Shia Genocide in the mainstream and social media, we have recently achieved notable successes. I would also take this opportunity to invite those sitting on the sidelines to throw their lot in with our discourse. I would like all readers to spare a thought or say a prayer for the victims of Shia Genocide and their families who have demonstrated steely resolve and strength of the human spirit. These people give us courage to fight on for the truth.

The list of examples of LUBP’s impact is relatively long, however, these are a few noteworthy examples:

Lord Avebury’s article in the Huffington Post clearly acknowledges genocide of Shia Muslims and identifies saudi-funded Deobandi militants as culprits who are also killing Sunni Barelvis and Ahmadis etc.

Press TV’s articles clearly identify and condemn the role of Takfiri Deobandi militants and Pakistan Army in Shia Genocide 

Pakistan Today‘s article on the Two-Nation-Theory which supports LUBPs discourse on Takfiri Dobandi militants and the need to provide safety to Shia Muslims in Pakistan.

We once again reiterate that correct discourse on Shia genoicde is not a personal or ego-related issue for LUBP’s editors and authors. We will continue to call out with ferocity anyone misrepresenting Shia Genocide. This will be especially true for those voices that profess to be leaders of liberals, for if they misrepresent (even slightly) it provides space for others to misrepresent even more. (e.g., https://lubpak.net/archives/246187 and https://lubpak.net/archives/231304)

It should be remembered that Najam Sethi was among the first anchors in the mainstream electronic media who provided live coverage to ASWJ-LeJ Chief Ahmad Ludhianvi’s hate speech against Shias and move the focus away from the Shia genocide through his talk show: https://lubpak.net/archives/73439

Here’s an example of how Mr Sethi and his colleagues at The Friday Times continue to re-focus the discussion of the Shia genocide: https://lubpak.net/archives/74987

In July 2012, Sethi informed us that that the Taliban had stopped attacking civilians: https://lubpak.net/archives/82388

And recently, Najam Sethi’s Friday Times (TFT) magazine undermined efforts for Sunni-Shia reconciliation: http://freespeechpakistan.wordpress.com/2013/02/10/how-najam-sethi-brought-down-maulana-tahir-ashrafis-solo-flight-by-shazia-najmi/

On the print frontier, The Jang has been calling for the destruction of the Shias through its rightwing journalists. For instance, two days after the recent attack on the Quetta Shias in which 113 Shia males and females of every age were killed, Ansar Ababsi wrote his column in The Jang in which instead of denouncing the killings, he blatantly called for throwing the Shias out of the fold of Islam. The complete account of Ansar Abbasi’s article is given here:

This in essence is not only reassuring but also a vindication of LUBP’s four years of hard work to spread awareness about Shia Genocide and our emphasis on correct discourse without any obfuscation or misrepresentations.

  • I commend LUBP for the fight fr truth to be told on the social media. I for one has worked independently raising this issue at different forums. i have written and published articles in theprint media and electroniv media too.This is an impotant issue that effects us all. How can any one either ignore it or sleep over it. This thought is beyond me. I fully sagree with Ali Taj that truth must be told or we risk our humanity for ignoring thisGenocide of Shiasby some fanatics.
    The truth is that todsay more Shias are killed on the strets of Pakistan and its urban centers The shias are killed, asnd they are protestin, mourning, aamnd asking for justice a nd peace for their communiy.
    We have to support them in raising their voice.
    The issue has been now discussed and debated by the conscience of the world.
    LUBP has worked diligently on this issue for a long period of time, and this fight and struugle hasstarted besaring fruit of its labor.
    Now eople have started focusing on this issue.
    GoodJb and well done

  • Sheeo yad rakho aman us waqt tak qaem nhe ho sakta jab tak k tum sahaba e karam ko bhonkna band nhe kertay. Sahaba ki shan main jab tak gustakhi ban nhe ki jae ge isi tarah qatl o gharat jari rahay ge. sahaba ko bakwas kerna band kero. khud bakhud aman ho jae ga warna LUBP Shia genicide ki posts lagata rahay ga. Kafir kafir sahaba ki shan main gustakhi kernay walay kafir jo is baat ko na manain woh sab se baray kafir
    Kahtay hain k musilman honay k lye sir ALLAH aur Rasool Hazrat Muhammad (S.A.W.S) ko manna zaroori he. to agar sirf Yazid ko sacha aur Hussain (R.A) ko batil per maan lia jae to kia musilman musilman rahta he? kia Ali (R.A) ko khaleefa tasleem na kernay se aur unki shan main gustakhi kernay se musilman musilman rahta he?
