In defence of Deobandi Sipah-e-Sahaba ASWJ – by Shahid Saeed

ss

Note: Shahid Saeed is a seemingly progressive microblogger who along with Aamir Saeed Deobandi, Samad Khurram, Mohsin Hijazee and a few other Deobandi activists belongs to the tier-2 or emerging apologists and promoters of the banned Deobandi takfiri outfit Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat (ASWJ aka Sipah-e-Sahaba Pakistan SSP aka Lashkar-e-Jhangvi LeJ) and other likeminded parties in Pakistan.

As a budding member of Pakistan’s commercial liberal elite, he hides his hatred of Sunni Barelvis/Sufis and Shias behind a thin veneer of liberal or secular narrative but loses no opportunity to obfuscate or deny the Deobandi identity of the violent and intolerant ASWJ-SSP-TTP-LeJ network. He is an active promoter of the good ASWJ, bad LeJ theory and also remains in denial about the Punjabi base and PMLN’s sponsorship of Deobandi terrorism. He also completely wipes out the Deobandi Pashtun aspect of the TTP-ASWJ terrorism in FATA, KP, Karacchi and the rest of Pakistan.

This post is based on his recent tweets as an exemplar or case study of how seemingly secular or liberal activists dilute or obfuscate the Deobandi ASWJ’s crimes against Sunni Sufis and Shias, construct false parity or comparison between Deobandi ASWJ murderers and Sunni Sufi/Shia victims, and justify or deny the important connections between ASWJ and right-wing/establishment forces eg PMLN and pro-Takfiri estabishment. It may be recalled that a few years ago Shahid Saeed and other Deobandi ASWJ apologists also claimed that there was weak evidence against Malik Ishaq, founder President of LeJ and current VP of ASWJ, therefore his release by the Lahore High Court suggests the prosecution failture, not the institutional Punjabi/Deobandi establishment’s suppport to ASWJ-LeJ.
