Double standards of Afrasiab Khattak on Shia Genocide in Dera Ismail Khan



Afrasiab Khattak had blocked me before one year, when I repeatedly had asked him some questions: First he opposes Pakistan’s military operations now, but from 2008 to 2012 when his former party was in power in #KPK and in alliance with #PPP he was supporting military operations in Sawat, FATA even taking credits of them why?

Second if he is anti-war leader then why he supported USA’s War on #Afghanistan and still he is silent on US military operations in areas of #Afghanistan. My third question was that he never raised his voice over #Saraiki_Shia Genocide in South KPK particularly in Dera Ismail Khan, why? In South #KPK not only Taliban but Lashkar Jhangvi-LeJ is involved in target killing of hundreds of Shia Muslims and there hundreds of Saraiki_Shia Muslim families headed by now Widows but this Saraiki (ethnic) plus Shia (sectarian) based cleansing always was obfuscated by some Pashtun liberal pro_war intellectuals same as they always focused on just ethnic aspect and obfuscation Shia and Sufi Sunni aspect while discussing Taliban Terrorism in Parachinar and Khyber Agencies.

Now again Afrasiab committed intellectual dishonesty he completely ignored injustices done with Saraiki-Shia Muslims and he says: ‘Pashtun Victims never get justic’.

My question is: Will Saraiki(Shia, Sufi Sunni) victims of Radical Takfiri Deobandi Wahhabi terrorism get justice ever? Will Punjabi Christians, victims of Taliban terrorism in Peshawar get justice? Fact is that Sufi Sunni Muslims, Shia Muslims, Christians, Hindus, Sikhs, Ahmedis having different ethnic and linguistic background were made targeted by Radical Takfiri Radical Wahhabi militant groups mostly emerged from Deobandi sect and members of these radical groups had come from different ethnic and linguistic background, we can not label them just as Pashtun or Saraiki or Punjabi or Sindhi or Baloch Takfiri terrorists. Commercial liberal section either its members come from Pashtun society or Punjabi or Saraiki or Sindhi or Urdu-Speaking of Urban Sindh prove opportunists and ethnic chauvinists.

When they are questioned and critically mirrored their narratives they run away while blocking you from commenting on twitter and Facebook.
