In the last 72 hours, 5 Shia muslims have been attacked and 2 martyred  in Karachi, Sindh.  The attacked includes 2 Shia doctors one of whom succumbed to his injuries. Dr. Shamim Raza was killed yesterday at this clinic.

He is part of the 150+ doctors and medical professionals that have been killed in Pakistan for their Shia muslim faith in the last couple of decades!

Let that number sink in.  More than 150 (the numbers vary between 155-157) have been killed in Pakistan simply for their Shia faith with barely a whisper of protests from Pakistan’s “lefty-liberal” civil society types.

Banned Deobandi terrorist organisations like ASWJ-LeJ and their leaders openly issue threats against the State and incite violence against the Shia community.  ASWJ-LeJ is part of the broader nexus of interchangeable Deobandi terrorists organisations like the Taliban/Jundullah/Majlis Ahrar etc that operate under various names and whose subsidiaries like the Lal Masjid/Jamia Hafsa have publicly declared their allegiance with ISIS aka Daish.

Inspite of being the primary source of violence against not just Shias but also Sunnis (Barelvis, Sufis, moderate Deobandis, Ahmadis) and Christians, ASWJ-LeJ is never mentioned or criticised. They currently enjoy a public alliance with the ruling PML N in the Federal and Punjab government. In Sindh, the spineless and increasingly complicit PPP government provides police security to terrorist leaders of ASWJ-LeJ like Aurganzeb Farooqi.

Pakistan’s civil society/”liberal” champions do their role in obfuscating this issue. Sometimes they misrepresent Shia Genocide by limited ethnic terms like Hazara – even though Shias are being targeted across every ethnic group in Pakistan.  At other times, they misrepresent the one-sided Deobandi violence against all other faith groups by using false and intellectually dishonest binaries like “Sunni vs Shia”, “Saudi vs Iran”.

LUBP has maintained a list of Sunni muslims who have also been killed by the same Deobandi terrorist groups like ASWJ-LeJ that is also targeting Shias.  This datbase is a not just a tragic reminder but also a strike against the dishonest media and civil society types who routinely confuse the reader on this issue.

  • Very sad. Inaalillahi wainna ilaihi rajeoon. However i advise pakistani shia that they should stop aggressive behaviour which is directed by Iran. 5% shia should behave like a minority. They should accept that pakistan is a sunni country. In iran sunni are silent and obey shia majority decision. Pakistani shia wants to impose their decisions on 95% sunni majority. Also shia should take leadership from MUlla shia leaders. Is there no secular liberal shia to lead shia community. Why iran and shia everywhere is led by mulla shia leaders

  • Mr. Jamal, you comments shows your hypocrisy very clearly. You are actually the supporter of the Takfiri Salafi terror group trying to hide behind a lambs skin so much so that any human (not only shia, sunni, christian,hindu, jew) who reads your comments will laugh at your stupidity.

  • Salam,
    In pakistan, shia is not majority, because we are more than 20%, also, in muslim country the minority means, non muslim, secondly, but if you divide the muslim, into shia and sunni, then listen, ahlehadeeth and takfiri and kharji, taliban and al qaeda is minority, shia percentage much high, shia are not taking direction from IRAN, shia have brian, most intelligent people in the whole muslim ummah, if we take direction and money, then we make Hizbullah in Pakistan, and fixed all the supports of jews, american agent takfiri, but shia are oppressed, go in the history, when the muslim in Indo pak are facing problems, from britain, hindi and sikh, it is the shia who help muslim league to break the india and stand firm against britain, hindu and sikh, now shia is majority, brother there is a limit of narrow mind, and your brian is extremely narrow, first you have to learn then talk.
