Sham-e-Ghariban and Barelvi-Shia Terrorists: Exposing the Bigotry of Pakistan’s Secular Sectarians

Maulana Fazlur Rehman's abominable Anti Woman, Anti Shia statement

On June 17, 2014, the Punjab police under CM Shahbaz Sharif and Rana Sanaullah carried out a brutal crackdown of PAT activists resulting in over 100 men and women being killed and critically injured. In response to this brutal act, the response of Pakistan’s “tinsel liberati” and selective human rights activists has been abysmal. 

Here are some samples

Sectarian: Dr. Tahir ul Qadri’s PAT movement has crystallized some important facts. By highlighting that Pakistan’s Sunnis (Barelvis/Sufis), Shias & Christians exist in harmony and share common ideals, Tahir ul Qadri has dealt a major blow to the false Shia-Sunni/Iran-Saudi sectarian/proxy war lies that has been propagated by Pakistan’s “Tinsel Liberati”. By evoking the low for the Holy Prophet and his family, Tahir ul Qadri has also exposed the sectarian bigotry of Pakistan’s so-called “liberal/secular” champions where Murtaza Solangi and hardline Deobandi Taliban leader, Fazlu Rehman use exactly the same sectarian digs “Sham-e-Ghariban” to mock the PAT protestors.

Sham-e-Ghariban is part of the solemn Ashura commemorations that are widely observed and shared by Pakistan’s Sunni Barelvi, Sufi, Shia, Hindu and Transgender communities. Takfiri Deobandis and Salafis who venerate mass murdering tyrants like Yazeed hate and abhor the cultural commemoration of Sham-e-Ghariban, This is the event when the Holy Prophet’s family women and children were attacked and enslaved by the Ommayad army.

Using Sham-e-Ghariban as a term of mockery and abuse shows the heartlessness and insensitivity of those using it as well as the common alliance between Takfiri Deobandi elements and pseudo liberals/seculars.

Some of these elitest and selective human rights activists of Pakistan have shown a soft corner to Deobandi extremism and often adopt false n
eutral positions where victims and perpetrators are lumped in same category.


As per the logic of this twitter conversation, the Pakistan Awami Tehreek under Dr. Tahir ul Qadri must not protest the brutal massacre of their workers because it puts them on an equal footing as those Deobandi terrorist organizations that have claimed 70,000 Pakistani lives! And further, as per the logic of this thread, ISIS/ASWJ were inactive before the PAT protests started two weeks ago and the 70,000 victims of Deobandi terrorism are therefore just a figment of our imagination! Or that the number will go up even more if the victims protest.

If this is the state of Pakistan’s “tinsel liberati” , God help us all.

It is deeply disappointing to see the False Neutral positions adopted by Dr. Taqi and Arif Jamal on social media. To lump the victims of State terrorism (Sunni Barelvis, Shias) with their perpetrators or to misrepresent State/PML N backed Deobandi & Salafi terrorist groups at par with their victims is sheer dishonesty and indicative of bias and prejudice. All religious groups and sects have extremists. However to make a false equivalence between the Deobandi perpetrators (ASWJ-LeJ, JeM, Jundullah, Taliban) & Salafi (LeT/JuD) and their Sunni Barelvi, Sufi, Shia, Hindu, Christian, Ahmadi, Sikh victims is sheer dishonesty. 

It is disappointing  to see individuals like Dr. Taqi and Arif Jamal reduced to such prejudice in their blind allegiance to the murderous and rigged regime of PML N.  Both individuals should take note that in their current visceral response to the PTI and PAT protests, they are close to the sentiments of ASWJ-LeJ and LeT.

Finally, there are those like Nusrat Javeed who presents himself as a liberal journalist.  To see his shocking homophobic attacks against an Election Commission whistle blower shows the lows to which pro PML N journalists have sunk to.  In this collection of tweets, Nusrat Javeed comes across as not just homophobic but dangerous.  Bully tactics and wishing assaults on others are common tactics of PML N thugs like Gullu Butt and Pomi Butt and Billu Butt. Now we have “anti-establishment” “liberal” journalist whose public pronouncements expose him as nothing more than a PML N paid thug.

    This is one of the most important article with documentary evidence that shows how our Commercial Liberal sectarian bias exhibits itself. https://lubp.net/archives/321405

    You will find the real faces of all the commercial liberal, their thought process and their bigotry

    Remember Qadri is the only litmus paper that you can use to expose the commercial liberal deobandi alliance (CLDA).

    Commercial Liberals sitting in gigantic lap of Tahir Ashrafi, defend the biggest beneficiary of TTP conducted elections

    I am amused by those commercial liberals reminding me that IK WAS taliban supporter, while they support biggest beneficiary of Taliban NS

    JI, JUI, ASWJ, Taliban, LeJ, JuD, Tahir Ashrafi, Taqi Usmani all Talibani molvis stand besides NS even supporting democracy

    All taliban tout anchors Hamid Mir, Ansar Abbasi, Geo, Cheemas and talibani media support NS

    All taliban judges in SC, LHC, IHC support Nawaz Sharif

    All taliban mafia generals in military support NS (if they were not supporting him he would have been in Attock Jail by now)

    And they tell me support NS and oppose IK….hahahaha

    The guy who became the prime minister as per outcome of TTP conducted elections

    whose party and brother were given full protection by Taliban

    For 5 years whose brother was supported by Taliban, LeJ, ASWJ and JuD

    Whose party opposed all operations against Taliban

    Whose party contains the maximum number of Takifiri Deobandi Taliban followers after JI

    Whose government tried its best to delay operation against Taliban

    And you tell me support him and oppose IK


    How did commercial liberals exposed their Islamist/deobandi background in the past 2-3 weeks.

    1. By taunting music, dance, women and girls participating in sit-ins. Comparing dances to mujra and expressing their anger on Vulgarity

    2. Exhibiting Acute Lack of Sense of Proportion by comparing Qadri & his followers with Laal masjid.

    3. Showing their innate hatred for certain sect(s) by ridiculing their rituals like Shaameghariban.

    4. Foaming in mouth, hurling abuses and calling for blood of Qadri by quoting what happened in Laal masjid.

    5. By sharing Hafiz Saeed, Ludhyanvi, ASWJ, LeJ, Tahir Ashrafi and all other Islamist molvis fatwas against IK and Qadri


    So I have put my money on the following scenario:

    1. Pro-Taliban pro-Takfiri section of security establishment stands fully behind Nawaz Sharif,

    2. Tomorrow they will teach Qadri and his people real lesson.

    3. ARY and other channels will be closed

    4. IK and his crowd will be dispersed. IK might be house arrested for some days.

    5. A new series of suicide bombing for coming months

    6. And strong media campaign against Qadri to show how he had developed a cult.

    7. And we shall have another year of quiet rule. Anti-takfiri or moderate communities will continue to suffer.

    Remember pro Taliban/takfiri Military Establishment has invested too much in NS and there is no way they will let it go wasted.


    Nawaz Sharif is now a hostage to Talibani military establishment. He has been completely trapped.

    Nawaz Sharif is the biggest beneficiary of elections 2013 conducted by Taliban (TTP). They trapped his brother in murder case.

    All Talibani molvis ASWJ,LeJ, JuD, JUI stand with NS and tomorrow JI will also be on his side.

    Tahir Ashrafi, Hafiz Saeed, Fazlullah can not save Nawaz Sharif. There is still time he should come with PPP to IK’s container and resign.
