Rawalpindi burning

By: Special Investigative Reporter

In Rawalpindi District of Punjab at least 10 people were killed and 55 were injured in clashes between Shia and Deobandis near Raja Bazar when mourning procession of 10th Muharum was passing in front of a Deobandi religious seminary Jamia Taleem-ul-Quran.

Our Special Investigative Reporter talked to some officials of Security branch, special branch and intelligence bureau in Rawalpindi who revealed that their agencies were aware of a piror plan of banned terrorist outfit Sipah Sahaba that is currently working in the name of Ahle sunnat waljamat(ASWJ) Rawalpindi section. Security agencies have received solid information from their sources inside organization that Deobandi cleric head of Jamia Taleem-ul-Quran had called workers of banned outfits in seminary and plan was to attack and disperse the mourning procession when reached near seminary. Officials told me that their official reports were sent to District coordination officer Rawalpindi and District Police Officer and Home Department Punjab. Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif was fully aware of the Deobandi plan to provoke and attack the Ashura procession of Shia and Sunni Barelvi Muslims.

An Officer from Military Intelligence who was present in the Ashura mourning procession near Deoabanid seminary told  that Deobandi Cleric Head of Jamia Taleem-ul-Quran was calling Shia as Infidels and  their procession as non-Islamic act and violating the amplifier act but no law enforcement agency of Punjab government tried to stop or arrest him. There were many workers armed with assault rifles AK47 in compound of Deobandi seminary according to that officer of Military Intelligence.

“I was surprised to see only two police men appointing in front of that seminary and police department of Rawalpindi did not take action against those persons who were gathered there with prohibited arms openly” Said an official of Special Branch of Rawalpindi district.

A local senior Journalist told  that Deobandi network of ASWJ had been expanded and growing since Nawaz league came in power and District administration is not interested in restricting or ban activities of banned outfits. He revealed that whenever any station police officer tried to take action against such activities faced pressure from high ranks of Police and received threats from banned outfit.

In fact there is unannounced agreement between Punjab Government and ASWJ and this agreement was made due to mediation of provincial Law Minister Sanaullah who is godfather of deobandi terrorist organizations and groups.

Some insiders in Provincial Government says that cleric Zahid Muhamoud Qasmi Deobandi who is now General Secretary of Pakistan Ulema Council (actually this another mask of Deobandi takfiri clerics who have strong relations with ASWJ ,LEJ,TTP and are very close to Rana Sanaullah)is man of Sanaullah who played central role in setting up of close connection between Sanaullah and deobandi terrorists. Qari Zahid Muhmoud Qasmi is son of Late cleric Ziaullah Qasmi who was Chairman of supreme council of banned Spiah Sahabah Pakistan (SSP)and one of founding father of that organization.Qari Zahid Qasmi is running a network of land grabbers in Faisal Abad and he had tried to grab a land reserved for Bralvi sunni seminary in Faisal Abad and its goons had opened fired on Milad Procession and police administration had not taken any action against him due to pressure of Law Minister which angered Sahibzada Fazal Karim Chairman of Sunni Itehad Council and M.N.A from Muslim League.Sahibzada Fazal Karim first tried to convince Sharif Brothers to curb growing influences and control of deobandi terrorists on PMLN government in Punjab and partisan role of Sanaullah but in vain.When Sahibzada Fazal Karim realized deepened connection between Sharifs and deobandi terrorists then he parted his ways from Sharif brothers and he united Sunni bralvi organizations in the name of Sunni Itehad council which had mad an alliance with PMLQ and PPP in recent election against PMLN but he died during election and now his son Hamid Raza is Chairman of Councils.

Sahibzada Hamid Raza head of Sunni Itehad Council told this reporter in his recent conversation that PMLN is supporting Deobandi terrorists in Punjab and in PMLN there are strong lobbies of deobandi and he revealed that main supporters of ASWJ in PMLN are Rana Sanaullah law ministers of Punjab,Speaker Rana Iqbal,Education Minister Rana Mashehood,Rana Hayat of Qasur District of Punjab including many M.N.As and MPAs of Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz. He said that Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif and Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif were convinced that they and their families were being protected from deobandi terrorists due to that lobbies and they both were patronizing that lobbies.

Another bad development in Punjab administration is that split along side sectarian lines in hierarchy of law enforcement agencies have been deepened and this split is creating more hurdles in handling of growing militancy and sectarianism in Punjab. There are many reports of intelligence agencies which show this deepened split in provincial administration along side of sectarian lines. Some well informed officials of intelligence agencies says that even in intelligence operatives this split is also taking shape and place which is more dangerous.

LUBP, New York Times and some other reliable media outlets have been published many stories about alleged links between PMLN and Deobandi sectarian ,banned takifiri deobandi elements but still main stream Pakistani Media is censoring these fact and revelations.

Most sectarian terrorist incident against Shia, Christians, Sunni Barelvis and Ahmadis were happened due to alleged connections between Deobandi terrorists and Government of PMLN and there were local law enforcement officials who supported and helped deobandi terrorists and paved way for violation against non deobandi religious communities.

Recently Punjab Police had arrested Sibghatullah Muawia Deobandi, brother of head of Punjabi Taliban Ismatullah Deobandi, in ransom crime but soon he was released as Dawn news has reported on 15/11/2013.

Punjab has become safe havens for Deobandi terrorists and extremist outfits. Deobandi militant group Ahl Sunnat Waljamat (ASWJ) has expanded its network at grass root level and has become a cover for terrorists acting against non Deobandi sects. This organization is spreading hate and insulting views about Shia, Sunni Barelvi, Ahmadi and other religious minorities. Strategy of this extremist organization is provoking other communities and paving way for full sectarian based civil war between Shia and deobandi school of thoughts. Its main propaganda cell is proliferating such disinformations and wrong messages about three Caliphs which can instigate Sunni Bralvis against Shia.”We are well aware of conspiracies of Deobandi Khawarijs who want to see a full civil war between Sunni and Shia” Said Sahibzada Hamid Raza head of Sunni Itehad Council while talking to this reporter.

  • The following two reports published in daily Dawn (with additional information) confirm that Deobandi mosque of Sipah Sahaba provoked violence:

    Intelligence sources and eyewitnesses said the crisis began in the afternoon when the mourning procession of Ashura reached Fawara Chowk where its participants heard the remarks of Maulana Shakirullah, a local Imam who was giving the Friday speech from the Mosque and Madressah Taleemul Quran (known as Maulvi Ghulamullah wali Masjid). A follower of the Deobandi school of thought, the imam made harsh and offensive comments against the Shia community.

    It was unfortunate that though the City District Government Rawalpindi (CDGR) had banned the use of loudspeaker (except for giving Azan and the Friday sermon in Arabic), this ban was violated by the mosque administration despite the presence of police and local administration.

    It is not clear what happened after this. While some eyewitnesses claim that the Shia participants of the procession (including about 100 youngsters from Parachinar and other parts of Kurram Agency) instigated the violence by pelting stones on the mosque, others claim that the students and people in the Madressah were the first to throw stones.

    SITUATION WORSENS: Regardless of who cast the first stone, the clash soon intensified shortly after which gunfire was exchanged.

    “During the clash, the police tried to overpower the angry mob but they were outnumbered. Some of the young men snatched the policemen’s rifles and emptied the weapons on their opponents,” Abdul Waheed, an eyewitness, told Dawn.

    He said that after the exchange of fire, the mob set fire to the mosque which was located above the Madina and Makkah Markets. The markets were located on the ground floor and sold fabric.

    Later they ransacked the market.

    The mob set fire to two main fabric markets, including more than 100 shops, four private banks, smashed windowpanes of buildings at an adjacent bazaar. It also attacked the police and three Imambargahs in different parts of the city.

    The mob violence in the midst of gunfire was extreme enough to strike fear in the city’s residents – despite the ban on cellphone services, the news of the clash spread like wild fire (partly thanks to the electronic media) and added to the strength of the two clashing groups.

    “Some of the people inside the mosque managed to escape through back door,” said a police official who was present on the spot.

    The part of the procession that had already passed by the mosque and was ahead of the violence managed to reach Imambargah Qadeemi three kilometres away.

    However, those in the rear never made it to the destination.

    The nine deaths took place at this location as well as the bulk of the injuries.

    By the evening the army was called in. Rescue workers also turned up to shift the injured and dead to the nearby District Headquarters Hospital. The fire brigade vehicles battled the blaze in the cloth market as it was spreading towards other adjoining markets.

    The clashes on the other hand spread to other areas of the city where Deobandi activists attacked Imambargah Haideria in Ratta Amral; Imambargah Col Maqbool on College Road, Imambargah Hifazat Ali Shah in Bohar Bazaar and Qadeemi Imambargah at the Jamia Masjid Road.

    Three more people were injured during these attacks.


    A report prepared by intelligence agencies blamed the provincial government and its law enforcement agencies for the Ashura violence in the city on Friday.

    The report sent to Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif pointed out that Madressah Taleemul Quran situated on the main Ashura procession route had been declared “highly sensitive” under the Muharram security plan. However, no attention was paid to the fact that Deobandid Sipah Sahaba ASWJ cadre intended to attack Ahsura procession from that osque/madressah.

    The report’s account of how the trouble erupted did not differ from that of police officials and eyewitnesses. All agreed that the trouble started when Qari Shakir, who led the prayers at the mosque, began delivering a speech through the loudspeaker at around 1.30pm.

    The local administration had banned the use of loudspeakers except for azaan and khutba in Arabic in worship places, but no one stopped the cleric from suing the loudspeaker even though the police were present on the spot.

    The intelligence report added that the violence could have been averted had the ban been enforced by the district administration and the police. Deobandi Molvi Qari Shakir delivered a highly provocative speech against Shia Muslims and chanted slogans in support of Yazid.

    The report claimed that the speech provoked participants of the procession who started pelting the seminary with stones. Some accounts suggest that the Deobandi students first threw stones on the participants of the procession from inside the building. However, some eyewitnesses contradicted this account of the report.

    “At that time, Maulana Ashraf Ali, Qari Shakir, Maulana Amanullah (vice Khateeb), Maulana Maqsood Usmani, Tanveer Alam from Sadiqabad, Abdul Rasheed, Qari Sanaullah from Madni Masjid…, Qari Nisar Ahmed from Awan Colony and prominent leaders of Sipah-i-Sahaba and 150 to 200 other worshippers were present in the Deobandi mosque,” the report said.

    The fact that most of those killed in the violence belonged to other cities also gave credence to the report that the outsiders (ASWJ-LeJ militants) were mostly responsible for the violence.

    The deceased included Rehmat Shah from Batagram, Tariq Mehmood from Khushab, Habibur Rehman from Murree, Shakirullah from Swabi, Mohammad Anwar and Tariq Mehmood from Bagh. Three others who were killed during the violence remain unidentified.
